29th Jul 09 (Wed) Leave a comment

On Sunday, we hosted July’s Veggie Supper Club in Eugene and set the theme to a BBQ.  I made amazing bbq sauce’d tofu & tempeh, brie/craisin/pistachio quesodillas, and the shockingly easy coconut-rum soaked grilled pineapple

pina colada on a stick

Coconut-rum Grilled Pineapple

serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup coconut rum
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbl lime juice
  • also needed: grill or cast iron pan
  • also needed: wooden or metal skewers

Directions:

  1. Cut pineapple into long slices.
  2. Mix rum, sugar and lime juice together, slightly warming (60-90 seconds in microwave) to allow sugar to dissolve.
  3. Soak in mixture for 1 to 4 hours.
  4. Skewer up and put on grill.  Rotate and cook all sides.  Enjoy!

We are totally making these again.  Soooo easy, and sooo delicious… it’s like a piña colada on a stick.

I was gonna post a blog about a reminder about Orange Tulip Conspiracy‘s upcoming West Coast tour, Opeth and wrapping their latest video, or Will Ferrell and his George W. Bush stage production, or Wynton Marsalis on the Colbert Report, or a too cute for school puppy, or Kevin Smith doing a space film next… but it ALL got sidetracked due to this amazing new album cover (thanks EW blog):

Animal Collective‘s Merriweather Post Pavilion (due out Jan. 20, 2009)

THIS is NOT an animated GIF. It’s a regular, 1-layer jpeg.  I downloaded it and it doesn’t have any funky layering going on.  It’s all a trick of the eyes…

Wicked cool.

Blueberry Dreamin’

3rd Aug 08 (Sun) 4 comments

Whenever my mom made blueberry muffins, I always got to help. I often snuck (snook?) samples out of the bowl before they made it to the muffin pan. It was my dream that when I grew up that I’d be able to buy my own box of blueberry muffin mix and eat it right from the bowl. Yes, I was a sick kid.

As an adult, I can say that I’ve never bought a box of blueberry muffin mix and eaten it all straight from the bowl. That’d be kinda gross. I mean, seriously…

Well, the other day I was at a Cold Stone Creamery. And to my surprise (and delight), they had a new flavor… Blueberry Muffin Mix Batter.

It is delicious. Sure, it’s all synthetic and got stuff in it that’s bad for us… but, it’s probably better than eating a big ass bowl of muffin mix.  ‘Cause for me that’s not a stretch when you get right down to it.

Back to music bloggin’ tomorrow… Secret Chiefs 3 in Portland is tonight.
