Yes. You should check it out. It is a good, good series. One day, in heaven, we'll get a newer fresh breath in that series or Robotech.

==== Rebels: Fire Across the Galaxy ====

I love that Tarkin is forced to evacuate his Flagship. This speaks to his hesitation and arrogance when forced to do it a second time on a ship far more valuable than any Star Destroyer.

Also, who is fulcrum. Exactly who you thought. Unless you thought wrong. ;)

I helped out with 'Short Order Heros'. It's a fun concept whether you are writing, or narrating RPGS. This is a modest Kickstarter. Calico isn't asking for much, and it should be easy to blast this into stretch goals if we work together.

As I am directly involved with this, I hope you'll consider helping out. Each deck is as full as a deck of playing Cards (same material) and the art work is professional, fun, and whimsical.
 
Tell your friends, the Short Order Heroes Theme Pack Kickstarter is here!

Two dudes, one ship.

Why don't they just get another ship?

Apparently you have never viewed the cinematic master piece that makes sweet love to both the audio and visual senses that is Top Gun. All the answers to two dudes one ship can be found within.

==== Peanutless Chicken ====

At 3am I woke up hungry for Peanut Butter. I also knew we had just bought some Chicken Thighs and I haven't cooked in some time. So I set out to make Peanut Chicken.

So I hit the streets of the net and found various YouTube videos and Food Blogs on various dishes close enough to what I wanted to make. I took a baseline of all the things each recipe had in common and set out to make my own creation

I don't do vegetables, but I did grab a can of Blackeye Peas on the way up to the kitchen.

I had a list of ingredients. I didn't have portions, so I eyeballed it and wrote down what I did. When it came to add the Peanut Butter the concoction was so good, I would have lathered my arm with it, so I left the Peanut Butter out.

On the notion of Citrus, many of the recipes added a citrus element to their Peanut Butter Chicken. In some it was Lime, other Lemon or Orange. One lady made her whole dish "in a jar" out of powders and freeze dried ingredients. Seeing this, I used Lemonade Powder in mine and it worked quite well. Pictured, the kind I used has no sugar, so it's even more flavorful without adding sugars to your meal.

I used boneless skinless thighs. I was going to fry them, but with all the water it ended up being more of a boil. 

Here's roughly the sauce I made. Just before I cooked the chicken, I made another batch to pour over the top. If I had it to do again I would use less water, so that it would cling to the chicken better and be even more flavorful.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3 tbls Soy Sauce
2 tbls Lemon Powder
2 tbls Paprika
2 tbls Rice Vinegar
2 tbls Minced Garlic
2 tbls Solid Chunk of Coconut Oil
1 pinch of each: powdered: Oregano, Thyme, Cumin
1/2 Cup Water.
1 tbls Hot Sauce of your Choice (the stuff I used was flavorful but had no heat)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As I said I got the pan to frying temperatures, but when I added the ingredients it turned into more of a boil. I cooked it on med/high heat, with a lid, for 6 min and then flipped each chunk, and stirred the brew and peas more, and let it cook for another 6.

As I said, the sauce is delicious (to me) and, were it a little thicker, I would eat my own shoe dunked in it. 

I try not to salt my food while preparing it, instead letting each diner add their own salt. You might mention the Soy Sauce, but for the volume of the pan plus the water it the sauce was hardly salty at all.

I ended up using a sprinkling of the Himalayan Pink Salt + Garlic and it was quite good.

I think my only regret to this all is that I cooked the chicken at 4am and thawed it with a warm bath for 30min. If I had though of this dish a day ahead of time I would have made twice as much sauce (so 4 times this recipe) and used it as a marinade as well.

+Brianne Chason is asleep, but I'll see if she'll take some for lunch tomorrow, and what she thinks about it.

Since it didn't have peanuts I let +Richard Chason II try a chunk and he seemed to like it alright. :)

+Chris Adams . I totally agree. Though a brine/marinade is not something you do on a whim. Here I had to thaw in a warm bath for 30 min and then get cooking.

I had one-and-a-half pieces of this last night. The rest I hope are resting in the fridge in their juice. We'll see if this is one of those dishes that is "even better the next day".

We consider Unity 5, and are treated to a great video as well.
 
We're making Dusk Bunnies off of Unity. Unity 4. Unity 5 just came out. We'll study it real close and see if there is any advantage switching mid-stream, especially since all the hotness of 5 has to do with 3D. Though it seems since they are letting it be "free" we may have access to dynamic lighting.

Give the video a watch.

==== With Sadness and Trepidation ====

I'm not disbanding this clan. We've been through and done so much together.

It is with an odd sense of sadness that I have pulled us out of all of our "paid for" services.

Starbound is always a passing phase when we turn it on.

We seem to lack the dicipline and stictutiveness to keep playing and paying for the Arma Server.

There are other games we are into that seem to run multiplayer services FOR us. Games like Elite Dangerous and Trove are fine examples. I Know many of us like Robocraft. Some play Space Engineers when they get the notion to.

It's just hard to justify the cost of paying for these servers

Other games may come along that warrant our coin. But for now, we are scuttling those services that are being neglected.

We have plenty of games to play. We have great people do play with I want us to keep getting together and gaming and caring about the well being of our brothers. 

Your donations over the years have been helpful. And I am very grateful for all you've done for the clan and for me when I was at my lowest. 

Stay Frosty.

Any place where I order a "Double Cheese Burger" that then gives me one piece of cheese on the burger, and that is the common practice, gets an F in my book. Afterall, I didn't order a Double Burger, with Cheese. I ordered a Double Cheese, Burger. Repeat After me. "Cheese, Meat, Cheese, Meat". It's an art, but not rocket-science. The other offence is it is apparent they use pre made, near flavorless patties. The nicest thing I have to say about them is they use actual mayo and not miracle whip. If you want cheap AND good, go to Arctic Circle just down the road. Stay clear of this place, it's not worth what you pay, I am dissapoint.

Prices were a little high, but overall the flavor was great. They let me customize my sandwich how _I_ wanted, and it was quite savory. Salad Bar is adequate, and while there is no spinach _on_ the bar, they will give you _all_ the spinach if you just ask them for some. The decor is there, as in, they have some. The homemade ranch and bread was more of an appeal to me. Too bad they don't have "Sun Dried (or even oven slow cooked) Tomatoes.

Definitely more of a Bar and NOT a steakhouse. Waste of time, paying for drinks and walking. will go somewhere we know is good. They should advertise that they are a Finger Steak House. The decor is trashy and smells of an era when you could smoke in a bar. Not a steakhouse, and not a sports bar, this place has a marketing and identity crisis.

Don't eat here. They don't know what they are, or are doing. They have something for everyone, and and as such make everything poorly. They have pizza, sandwiches, coffee, a full bar, gelato, sushi. Four times they asked if we ”want to open a tab”. Four times we had to say no. we weren't drinking. We paid for our food, and then had to pay for the REST of it when we were done because they didn't charge us for it all, they put it on our ”tab”. My sandwitch was over priced, flavorless, and had a two inch SLAB of feta. So dry.

I hate my reliance on Walmart but LOVE their variety and prices. If you dirty hipsters want to say it's run down fine, you _don't_ have to shop here. Besides you should be off supporting the Ma&Pa stores anyway. Right? At night, during non "peak" hours they don't have as many lines open. Again, while I don't like going there (but I am a bit agoraphobic) I love it once I get there. I know where things are, the people are friendly, and the prices are pretty darned low. God bless Capitalism.
