We are now 3 weeks away from spring. Ain't it great? I have begun ordering decorations for the seasonal tree and they should start arriving any day now.
I made beef stew in the Instant Pot yesterday, took 35 minutes. Tasty, but not great. The recipe called for a can of tomato sauce, which gives it too much of a tomatoy undertone. I want my beef stew to be hearty, with a full beefy flavor, not like I poured in a can of spaghetti sauce by mistake. Otherwise, the recipe is sound, I'll just have to find an alternative sauce... or gravy. Oh, and add more potatoes.
Speaking of beef, Lily is running around the house with the tip of a Puperoni sticking out the front of her mouth like a meaty little cigar. I warned her, she better eat that thing or Biggy will.
The hate festival that is known as CPAC is now over. I don't know for certain, but I do believe only white Evangelicals attended, many of whom, though not all, swore their allegiance to Failure. In a straw poll, their Loser president only received 55% of the vote supporting him for a 2nd presidential run in 2024. Ouch.
And, of course, there was a bit of an issue with their stage. Someone though it a great idea to design it in the shape of a rune used by the Nazis. Hyatt Hotels is pissed, putting a press release slamming hatred. Let's see... I guess that means this year's CPAC celebrated a golden statue, a Nazi symbol, and a tin foil dictator wannabe... Did I miss anything? Here's a picture of the stage, and the symbol, and also a flag from the riot of January 6. Are there any questions?
Can they get any more evil?
Oh, the Hyatt is pissed? Didn't they see it coming? Idiots. They deserve all the bad press that could come from this. I understand they can be pissed, but please!ReplyDelete
And that beef stew looks good. I still have to graduate from the crockpot to the Instant Pot.
When I worked for Marriott, they had little concern how guests set up their stages so Hyatt probably didn't even know until social media started pointing out the evil.Delete
SSDD with CPAC; crush the h8ers!ReplyDelete
One thing nice this year was that it didn't really seem to get a lot of press, more like an overview... except for the Nazi symbol.Delete
I don't like dishes with a too-tomatoey taste either. Would you consider adding a small pot of black tapenade to it? It's a miracle ingredient!ReplyDelete
I'll give it shot. The recipe is fine otherwise.Delete
Matt Schlapp went after someone of Twitter, saying their stage does NOT resemble any Nazi symbol, and the Twitter apologized for saying "resembled" when he meant "loos exactly like."ReplyDelete
Yeah, there were a lot of comparisons showing an exact match.Delete
My pup use to love Pupperoni, but no longer likes them at all--she leaves them on the floor untouched. I need to find another inexpensive treat...ReplyDelete
They've always been the first treat of the day for my dogs.Delete
