Tried the Steak and Potato Nachos again today.

Recipe found here: Steak and Potato Nachos.

The ‘mistake’ I made last time was to not use enough pans.  This time, I cooked the skirt steak on a cast-iron griddle, which meant that I didn’t smoke up the kitchen this time when I added the potatoes.  What I did instead, in fact, was to put the potatoes in the cast iron pot, add the steak on top and the cheese, then broil it — which I don’t remember if I did last time — until it was ready to go.  More dishes, but less potential emergencies, and my wife and I inhaled it just as readily as last time.

There’s still smoking going on, though.  I am considering next time to go with my original impulse to grill it outside.  Only problem there is that it’s a pain to use charcoal for just that one item, and no, we’re not getting a propane grill any time soon.  That’s an extravagance for us, frankly.

Still, yum.  No pictures, because, well.

Prayers for Aretha.

Aretha Franklin is, apparently, gravely ill.  I don’t think that it’s the kind of ill that you can easily recover from, either.  My prayers for her, her family, and loved ones.

OK, fine, I’ll back the new Over the Edge Kickstarter.

 

Have the funds to cover the new edition of Over the Edge: A Roleplaying Game of Weird Urban Danger, so I guess that I will. Only because I keep getting nagged to do it by all the game designers that I follow, or respect, or take seriously.  Makes it kind of a hint.

PS: Can’t do this and Reign, though.  Tough call, too.

Oh! Forgot: THE PUMPKIN SPICE MUST FLOW.

Yes. It’s back:

I picked up the pumpkin spice Life cereal (which I actually wish was readily available year round) and the pumpkin spice cookies (which I imagine many people would concede is a perfectly reasonably thing to have with one’s coffee). I skipped the Keebler pumpkin spice fudge-frosted cookies, but not because they sounded awful. Nah, I skipped them because my metabolism isn’t what it used to be.

But it begins. Ah, yes, it begins. The spice must flow.

Patreon microfiction: ‘Command Authority.’

Command Authority” is aligned with The Bold Marauder incentive that I’m doing on Patreon.  Its theme is simple: don’t expect Samson Black to do your dirty work for you.  Especially when he’s quietly decided that the person you’re trying to overthrow is better-suited for command than you are.
