Tip {not} Use Vaseline daily to cure acne


micah told kyle that if he coated his face with vaseline daily, his acne would disappear. he advised this on the basis that vaseline would moisturize his skin, and that it is good because vaseline is CLEAN oil, as opposed to the rivers of oiliness on any teenager's face. so now micah is arguing with kyle, trying to convince him that if he sticks with it, all his acne will disappear within a week of daily application. 

lol. i first tried to correct kyle. but he stubbornly denied my attempts at enlightenment and now i'm joining forces with micah... sigh

real friends stab you in the front and bad friends stab you in the back. sympathetic but confused friends also stab you in the back.

the Bermuda Burger

the three meals of toppling tri-om were the three amazing burgers downed with 3 pints of beer on different occasions.  so i tried it out at home. and it was good. here we go, a very traditional, pub style, my "bermuda burger"

a simple recreation: 

the Bermuda Burger

2 TB Black Rum (or maybe 1tb reg and 1tb worch. sauce)

1/2 cup Bread Crumbs

1 Egg

1 clove fresh minced garlic

do this: blend all but the meat and garlic in a blender, then mash everything together and form patties, grill for about 3 min. pr side on high heat, and lay cheese after first flip

Caramelized red onions 

- 1 fresh ripe onion, chunky cut, cook in saucepan on low heat with butter, 1TB Rum and 1TB cane sugar

Lightly sautéed mushroom slices
