Rampant unfounded speculation on why CH hates hippehs?


Tonight, it iz a speciol night! It iz Italian dinner night!

First, you must make ze italian bread. Take 3¼ cups flour, ½ T active yeast, ½ t sugar and ½ t salt and mix togezer with a whisk in a large bowl. After all ze dry ingrediants are mixed, add 1¼ cups of water and knead ze dough togezer for about 15 minootes! Zen cover ze entire bowl with a tea towel and let zit for 90 minootes.

After 90 minootes are up, punch down ze dough as if it were a insignificant peasant. Take ze tea towel and sprinkle some corn meal (or more flour if you are too heazenistic to 'ave corn meal) and shape ze dough into a loaf shape and place on ze corn meal. Fold up ze tea towel to cover ze loaf, but not tightly zince you need to leave room for it to rise again (just as if you cast Raise ze Dead, non?) for anozer 45 minootes.

Pre-heat your oven to 450 degrees (fahrenheit, you american imbeciles!). Once ze dough 'as risen, spread some corn meal (or your faux pas flour) on a pizza stone (you do not 'ave one? Non! Go buy one right now! I shall wait...) and place ze loaf on ze stone and bake for 45 minootes. Ze bread is finished when the crust is golden-brown and tapping on it produces a hollow sound. For a chewier crust, you can brush on an egg wash before baking.

Once ze bread is done, remove from ze oven and let rest on baking rack for 15-20 minootes. Just enough time for you to make ze dinner!

Start with crumbling up four sausage links (I recommend ze spicy italian sausage... You zick pigs! Zat iz NOT what I meant) in a large cast iron skillet. Let it cook over medium-high heat until it iz browned. Zen add to ze pan a cup of chopped mushrooms, a tablespoon for minced garlic, a tablespoon of minced onion, 16 ounces of crushed tomatoz and season with salt, pepper, basil and oregano to taste. Turn ze heat down to a simmer and cover.

Fill a large pot (about three-quarters of ze way up) with water and add a teaspoon of kosher salt and two tablespoons of light olive oil. Bring to a boil. Once it iz boiling, add ze noodles to ze water. Personally, I usually break ze noodles in half before add zem. Zis allows the noodles to be fully immersed in ze water from ze beginning (instead of zem slowly sinking if you do not break zem) and also prevents ze diners from 'aving to cut ze noodles later.

While ze noodles are boiling, slice ze bread and place on a plate. Cover with another towel (do not use ze same one from earlier! Zat is disgusting!) and place on ze table.

After boiling ze noodles for 8-12 minootes (zey will be done when ze noodles are stretchy but still firm), drain ze water from zem. Do NOT rinze ze noodles with cold water zince ze will break down ze structure and make zem mushy. Pour ze noodles into a large serving bowl and pour ze sauce over zem in ze bowl right away. Serve on ze table with ze bread and watch your diners eat with ze joy!

Zome side accompaniments to ze meal would be parmigiana cheese, powder garlic and butter. Serve with your favorite beverage (which is probably not ze fabulous french wine, but your poor american 'soda pop').

Bon Appetit!

{sees no Angel Fish around} You know the French chefs are a recent offshoot of the main Hippeh bloodline. You are lucky your whole kitchen didn't burn down.

True story. At first I thought they had pulled him over for DWM, Driving While Mexican for those who don't know, But when the sarted pulling forties out of the truck and emptying them, Iknew it was the real deal.

You should have flagged him down and bought a creamsicle while he was being arrested.

That's the thing. He was out selling his stuff when they pulled him over. He was only two houses up from where he had last stopped when the cops lit him up.

Thanks. I already have had one call. unfortunately the place wanted to pay $12.00 and hour for 20 hours a week. I would make more than that on unemployment, and I don't have to move. I will move if I need too, but I at least need full time work if I'm going to do it. I did apply for a couple of my dream jobs, since they were open. I'm hoping to get a call in a few weeks offering me an interview for asisstant historian to the Senate or Director of Educational Outreach at the National Holocaust Museum.

Are you still looking to teach? Edison State College (edison.edu) and Ave Maria (avemaria.edu) here had several open positions recently although they are probably a pay cut, and AM is Roman Catholic.

I would still like to teach, but ultimately I will take anything that pays decent enough that I can support my family.

Well your still in the Moore Clans thoughts, David, and good luck with those dream job aps!

HAHA! first post on my demanded return to the boards. :D

Well, if you're not adverse to working in muggy SW FL and dodging hurricanes, you might try them both. I think Edison has plans to open a fourth campus, and Ave Maria probably wouldn't be too bad if you can resist/fake the strong pro-RC atmosphere.

Edit: Just checked -- FGCU (fgcu.edu) is looking for instructers/teachers too.

Good luck in whatever you choose. Also, the housing market down here sucks for sellers, so maybe you can afford a modest house too.

So my sister is working in a call center doing fundraising for the Fraternal Order of Police. She's been calling places in L.A. and calls some guy. The guy tells her, "hell no I'm not donating to them. My brother was just minding his own buisness, doing the only thing he knew how to do to make a living as a black man in Compton, dealing drugs. Then some crooked, corrupt undercover cop comes along and sends him to prision. After he gets out, nobody will hire him so he goes back to doing the only thing he knows how to do to support his family, dealing drugs. Then the cops come along and send him back to prison. Why would I want to give them money?" I swear I'm not making this suff up.
