(Ani posted a recap of the first [livejournal.com profile] pencilslingers' challenge! :D You can see it here - and it's got links to art by [livejournal.com profile] ani_bester, [livejournal.com profile] glockgal, [livejournal.com profile] yorufukagawa and me. ♥)

(Also - I'm getting kind of tired of ICanHas, mostly because most caps now tend to look all the same and not really funny, but when I stumbled on this cap this morning I had my first autentic (ICHC) laugh in quite a while. *g* (and this one SO reminded me of Monkey Island 1.) )

...this is a weird entry, I know it is, but. Er. Would you happen to have a good recipe for french toast? And/or pancakes? It's just... I'm curious to make them, and I know I'd probably found a thousand recipes around, but... I don't know, I tend to be instictively wary of those. :P So, anyone with a trusted recipe to share? ♥

I just always throw everything in a bowl until it looks right.... Er. Sloppy cooking!

French toast.
Mix in a bowl: 2 eggs, enough milk for the amount of bread you're using (should turn a light yellow colour when whisked together). Add cinnamon if you like (but not if you're eating it savoury!).
Cut: the bread you are using into good-sized pieces if necessary (if you want soggier French Toast, use plain bread; for crunchier, toast it first)
Put: bread in milk and egg mixture, let soak.
Melt butter or add oil to a frying pan, or not if it is Teflon: fry to a good brown colour on both sides.
Eat, with ketchup if you prefer savoury, syrup or jam if prefer sweet.

Whisk: 1 egg until frothy and bubbly.
Add: about a cup of flour, pinch salt, teaspoon sugar, 3 teaspoons baking powder, and some milk to whisked egg.
Mix: only until everything is mixed in (if you over-mix, the gluten in the flour activates and you get tough pancakes). If it's too thick, add more milk; if too thin, add more flour.
Melt butter or add oil to a frying pan, or not if it is Teflon: spoon batter into pan, flip pancakes when bubbles rise to the top. Cook til a good brown colour on both sides.
Eat with syrup.

Ughhh that reminds me I still haven't started reading The Dark Tower yet.. XD;; SOON!

And I have no solid recipe for french toast! Usually I start with the basic eggs/milk/vanilla and then I start throwing in random things like cinnamon and clove powder. (I love nothing more than clove and would put it in ANYTHING I make. XDD)

*laughs* don't worry, it's not like there is a deadline or anything! XDDDD

...and when you talked about random things I really thought about random things. And I suddenly know what I might ask for, next time you put up the "OPEN FOR PROMPTS" sign... *g* Clove! This (http://www.danish-schnapps-recipes.com/images/cloves.jpg) clove? Omg, my mum is nuts about it too. XD

Hahaha... sharing. Yeah. Right. *cough* *g*

I know, but I have the first book sitting on my shelf, sandwiched amongst all the other books I want to read.. Good thing I gave up entirely on Twilight for the time being so I can focus on GOOD books! XD;

And pffft you don't have to wait for prompts! Request whenever you want! That's what matrimony is all about. SHARING things like ideas and FRENCH TOAST! >:0

(AND YES THOSE CLOVES! Seriously, it is my favourite thing in the world! I wish everything smelled like clove. :D :D :D)

Hahahaha, you tried reading that? I haven't had the courage yet XD how was it? ;P

♥♥♥♥♥♥ So, if I said things like Remus, Sirius and throwing random stuff into bowls, you would think of...?

Omg omg my ex-Mormom friend got it from her mother because it's written by a Mormon and about vampires. VAMPIRES THAT SPARKLE IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT.

I shit you not! D:

I would think of juggling! Because my mind is not as dirty as I pretend it to be! Also, I AM A WHORE FOR JUGGLING!

Wait, Monkey Island, as in the computer game Monkey Island?

If this is what you're talking about you have just MADE MY DAY!

No one knows Monkey Island *dances in anticipation*

The one and only! ;D Oh boy, I literally grew up* with it! Well, with that and with Indiana Jones. *g*

* For a given value of growing up.

Omg, look at your icon!!!

I LOVE monkey island. No one I have ever met knows what the hell it is. Omg I'm just so stupidly happy that I can't think what to say XD
Which MI was your favorite? I'm so hoping they do make a 5th one. You can only replay the game so many times :D

Of course. Your body may get older, but your mind can always stay immature ;)
