Hi guys. good to be back. This is my new strip. it's called GORD HYDN. I'm having a heck of a lot of trouble making it look neat with a white background. Hopefully I'll have that figured out before the next strip. If anyone has any tips, let me know. I plan on updating once a week, and working my way up 'til I find like the perfect number of weekly updates. Also, I plan to include a recipe with each strip, but don't be surprised by the slight weirdness of my recipes; they usually taste ok. Here is today's:
Macaroni and Cheese
Ingredients: 1 C whole wheat elbow macaroni 1 12 oz beer 1/4 C sour cream 1/4 C evaporated milk 2 Tbsp olive oil 3/4 C shredded sharp cheddar 1/4 tsp mustard powder 1/4 tsp paprika 1/2 tsp - 2 tsp louisiana hot sauce (amount depends on your tolerance. I use ALOT) salt and pepper to taste (I like red pepper for this)
Directions: Boil noodles in large pot of salted water with beer. In small saucepan, whisk sour cream, olive oil, and evaporated milk together and heat on medium-low til hot (probably don't want to let this boil though). Lower heat. Add in spices and cheese, whisk 'til cheese is melted. Strain noodles and add to cheese sauce. Mix it up. Let it cook on medium low for five minutes or so while the noodles absorb the sauce. Eat.
*optional addition: sliced yellow squash, which would be boiled with the noodles, but may take longer than the noodles so let it boil by itself for a bit before adding the noodles
Do you have a favorite mac and cheese recipe? I want to hear about it!
oh, also I just did a fan art for Brian at TheUnderfold.com, so go read that, after having read every episode so you will understand what's going on in my fan strip.
This announcement is a little late, but I've taken a break again due to the fast approaching end of the school year. Also, hardly anyone is posting right now, so I don't feel very much compelled to get on blogger.
Also though, I'm starting to question the merit of posting so frequently. I wonder if it isn't somewhat self-serving and masturbatory. When you consider the multitude of artistic and social expression out there competing for people's attention, it's quite inconsiderate, rude, and I might even go as far as to say immoral to waste people's time with anything less than one's best effort.
That being said, I hope to make a more serious effort this summer, not because I take myself or what I'm doing here at all seriously, but just because it's kind of the right thing to do.
