“The war has disclosed the possibility of consumption to all and the vanity of abstinence to many. Thus the bluff is discovered; the laboring classes may be no longer willing to forego so largely, and the capitalist classes, no longer confident of the future, may seek to enjoy more fully their liberties of consumption so long as they last, and thus precipitate the hour of their confiscation.”

–John Maynard Keynes, The Economic Consequences of the Peace

Recipe Roundup September 2016

Cake Filled Peanut Butter Cups (Vanilla Sugar Blog) — These would kill me, but I could make them for other people… Maybe…

Toasted Ciabatta Sandwich with Bacon and Brie (Simple Comfort Food) — Deadly deliciousness. At least I found that vegan cheese that doesn’t kill me. Then again, maybe I could just substitute goat cheese?

Apple and Cinnamon Crumble a Secret Recipe (Pass the Sushi) — I need these. Without the raisins, but that shouldn’t change the cooking. Maybe I could use currants?

Apple Cider Soda (Elana’s Pantry) — This looks really refreshing and perfect for the hot VA fall.

Cinnamon Chai Cream Pie (Pass the Sushi) — Must try this. Then, I can fuss with it until it doesn’t have things which won’t kill me.

Quote of the Week 08-26-16

“Everything you’ve learned in school as ‘obvious’ becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solid in the universe. There’s not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.” – R. Buckminster Fuller
