Oh Hey! An Apology Post!

So I realize that I haven't touched this blog in more than a year. The reason for this is that I am now attending University. Dorm cooking, though impressive and alluring, is nigh impossible. I have however managed to start cooking Indian cuisine, which I will be sure (maybe) to start posting soon.

Keep in touch, and do check out my friend's new photography blog: http://imnotanseladams.blogspot.com

Having Fun with Pizza Dough

I just want to say that Alton Brown's pizza dough recipe is the greatest foodstuff on the planet.

For reference:

Today, I took a swing at making calzones. Used the previously mentioned dough, and rolled it out into thin circles, about 10 inches in diameter. Fill with whatever you want, but nothing too wet (It'll boil out and give you steamed calzone dumplings).

For these lovelies, I used pepperoni, green pepper, anchovies, and provelone cheese.

Picture quality is shit, I know. They tasted great, though.

In other news, tonight Sam and I went exploring around town, looking to get a good scare in. Pics tomorrow.

Joining the African Penguin Mafia

So, after a couple months of wrestling, grunting, and crying, I've managed to completely shed my dependence on the Microsoft money-teat, and am now running my Gateway MT3422 Notebook completely on Ubuntu Linux. I'm loving it.
My gaming is better. Faster performance, faster launch-times, faster networking.

I can actually use my wifi card. The words Windows and Wifi should never be used together, unless in the sentence "Windows cannot use Wifi for shit." When I used windows, I used to have to toggle buttons, reassign ip addresses, flip switches, and pray to corn goddesses just to get a single connection. Ubuntu- first try, connected, full strength, great speeds.

I'm liking this penguin. I could get used to being his friend.

Oh! New food on the way. I've got some wicked pizza and calzone recipes to show off. Check back often!

Sandwiches or Sand Witches? :D

So, I got the job at Subway.

And that's mainly why I haven't posted a thing.

I haven't cooked a thing...

I'm very tired of making teriyaki strips.

The job really isn't all that bad. I'm surprised to say that the ingredients really are fresh. The hours are decent, and the staff is nice. I'd still rather be designing websites, which was my original plan for the summer.

Teresa's web business is really taking off, and I'm really proud of her for that. Hopefully I'll be able to get something going to replace subway.

Until then, at least I'm still getting paid.

I'll be the one helping you lose three-hundred pounds.

So tomorrow morning I go in for my job interview at Subway.

I really don't know what to think. I've worked fast food before, so I know how much of a hell it can be. I really hope Subway is better. With a lack of deep fryers, it looks a lot cleaner, and I don't think I would have to shoot myself should I be required to eat at work.

If Subway doesn't work out though, I applied last night to a local kitchen supply store....

Should I be worried that a kitchen supply store is my dream job?

... no. I need that pasta rolling attachment to my stand mixer, damnit.

Additionally, I've been playing Pokemon Pearl for the past month religiously. Right now, my team spans from lvl 30-50. I thought leveling them up evenly would be a nice change of pace, instead of having my traditional starter-tank. So if anyone wants to swap friend codes, I'd be very grateful.

... ok, maybe I should be worried.
