weekend update

Finally filed my freaking taxes.

This weekend had way too much WoW in it.

At least the reason I couldn't stop playing yesterday was that friends I hadn't gotten to play much with were on and active. (Hi honeyartichoke and... er... does he have an LJ? :) Bithian, my Tauren Warrior, is now 30, up from 27.

At least Saturday was virtuous and social in more healthy ways. I got to meet daryavesh and even help out in my own small way — I mostly helped by holding, lifting, and carrying various children. :)

I need to go stove shopping one of these days. Once this happens, it will be possible to make blackberry grunt, and frozen pizza, in the oven, again. Also, I'll try to get these guys take away the old washer from the basement (unlike the last two or three people baronet paid to do it.)

Life's pretty good. There are parts I shouldn't mess with, too much. There are other parts that I should totally mess with, but hey. What are you going to do?

What is...blackberry grunt?

It's like a crumble or a buckle!

Kind of like a slump, with more syrup.

Take a cast iron skillet, cook up some berries with sugar and water til you get a nice gooey pie filling thing. Then, put globs of buttermilk biscuit dough batter goo on top, and bake it for a while. When you're done, it's dessert, a blackberry grunt.

Thanks go to Alton Brown for informing me of the existence of this classic.

Yay helpful Saturday!

Alton Brown is a God
I, too, saw that recipe on his show but have thus far not been brave enough to attempt it. I have a fear of blackberry glue results. Must figure out what bribe is necessary to get you to make this for me (and come visit!)
