Gobble Gobble Hey!

Happy Turkey Day! Here's my recipe for Sweet Tater Souffle:

For the souffle:

3 cups baked yam
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup molten butter
1 tbsp vanilla
some cinamon

For the topping:

1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup molten butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup flour

First, bake the yams. They'll taste better than boiled. Then scoop them into a bowl and combine with the other souffle ingredients. Stir it up until well mixed, and pour it into a greased casserole dish (1 quart).

Next, combine the brown sugar and hot butter, then add the pecans, then slowly add the flour. Sprinkle it in clumps to cover the surface of the souffle. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.


Lobotomy! Lobotomy! (Actually, this is a really sad story)

Penn Gillette: This I Believe (I'm so glad that my job does not involve sorting through emails for NPR this week)

This is very interesting: basically, a conservative saying that it's time for Republicans to give up the fight against The New Deal, as it is ultimately a losing battle. Now, OK, this guy doesn't speak for the entire conservative movement, and I'm not even sure I agree with him, but what he's saying is pretty impressive because, like Penn's statement above, it goes so far against what we're used to hearing. Definitely worth the time it takes to listen.

RIP Link Wray. Anyone who can record an INSTRUMENTAL so nasty that it gets banned from the radio deserves a toast over your Thanksgiving dinner.
