Okay, I’ve just been stunned into stupefaction.
Just got passed by a car with three bumper stickers.
“Coexist” - with various religious and diversity symbols for the letters.
“Peace” - again, with various symbols for the letters.
“Moms For Liberty”.
As Sesame Street once sang, “One of these things is not like the others…”
@amyedge Honestly, I’m not sure there is. Most “conservative” writers I read these days would be better off with crayons and coloring books. I think that’s why, for example, the Post, because of its purported interest in “balance”, chooses to pay people like Hugh Hewitt, who can occasionally write an actual sentence even if he can’t reason. He, Sean Hannity, Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller are what pass for Republican “thinkers” now — God help us.
This Week's Bread: Angel Biscuits (take two)
Tried the recipe again, this time with double the salt. Also accidentally overdosed on the buttermilk, so I made it into a double recipe of eight instead of four.
I also did chill the dough in the fridge for a few hours. It really did add a lot of flakiness to the biscuit. It's not more of a rolll-type biscuit instead of a biscuit-like roll.
The extra salt helped a lot, but the bread on its own still tastes a bit bland. A pat of butter makes for a good roll, though, and I can imagine using it to soak up some gravy would make the rolls taste amazing.
