Do you think traffic is up or down say, compared to a year ago? Are you personally OK with whatever change you perceive?


I think traffic has gone down but most people here are OK with that. Just an observation though, very possibly I am wrong.

2 quarts vanilla ice cream, softened
1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
8 egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup white sugar

1. Line the bottom and sides of an 8-inch round mixing bowl or deep 8-inch square container with foil. Spread ice cream in container, packing firmly. Cover and freeze 8 hours or until firm.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8x8 inch pan.
3. Prepare cake mix with egg and almond extract. Pour into prepared pan.
4. Bake in preheated oven according to package instructions, until center of cake springs back when lightly touched.
5. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar, salt and sugar until stiff peaks form.
6. Line a baking sheet with parchment or heavy brown paper. Place cake in center. Turn molded ice cream out onto cake. Quickly and prettily spread meringue over cake and ice cream, all the way to paper to seal. Return to freezer 2 hours.

8. Bake the Alaska on the lowest shelf, 8 to 10 minutes, or until meringue is lightly browned. Serve at once.

right at the last second, pour 151 over it and light it up to let that brown the meringue.  Flaming Baked Alaska!

1. Line with foil the bottom and sides of a mixing bowl the diameter of your cock, or a deep square container your cock will reach across . Spread cream in container, whacking firmly. Cover and freeze 8 hours or until rock hard.*

I am working towards baking Alaska. Here is my recipe, I've been working on this dessert since the invention of the steam engine.

INGREDIENTS

80 million bbl of oil per day
800 million tonnes of coal per year
400 million tonnes of natural gas per year
6 billion people

DIRECTIONS

  1. Burn the oil by driving to the corner store for beer and cigarettes. For added creaminess, live more than 30km from work and drive a single occupant vehicle every day.
  2. Burn the coal mostly to run heating and air conditioning in poorly designed, poorly insulated, and oversized McMansions.
  3. Consume the natural gas making fertilizer for corn-based ethanol
  4. Repeat annually by an ever growing proportion of the world as everyone aspires towards overconsumption just like the developed nations.
  5. Melt glaciers and permafrost from accelerating global warming caused by CO2 produced in steps 1-4.
  6. Change earths albedo by melting polar sea ice and reducing duration of snow cover of tundra in step 5
  7. After several decades of cooking, serve baked Alaska to caribou displaced by oil drilling from ANWR.

"investigate"? by ammoniacal (4.00 / 2) #8 Sat Mar 08, 2008 at 07:23:21 AM EST
Dude, back in the day, a farmgirl starter kit was one of the gifts you'd receive during Cabal induction.

orly? by marvin (4.00 / 1) #9 Sat Mar 08, 2008 at 07:29:57 AM EST
So what happened to yours? Failed to follow the instructions, eh? Kept the temperature too high during baking to try and speed it up, didn't you?

And now no farmgirl for yuo. Suckah.

I'd be willing to trade it for a spare monocle that I have laying around somewhere.
