Too Many Eggs

Yesterday I noticed I had too many eggs. My overly producing chickens haven't noticed yet that it's winter,  it's cold and they should slow down. Since even after giving away a lot of them, the eggs were still too many, I decided to make an eggs-consuming cake, here we call it Torta Margherita or Pan di Spagna (Spanish bread). It requires 8 eggs,  300gr of potato starch,  300gr of sugar, half an orange's juice, baking powder, some cinnamon,  dried vanilla and grated orange skin. I whipped the whites with half of the sugar till hard. 20160111_182437.thumb.jpg.2ead698c6d2accThen I whipped the yolks with the other half of the sugar till they doubled and became creamy and whitish. I mixed them together in a very big bowl carefully stirring with slow bottom-up movements. 20160111_183927.thumb.jpg.e6ab495005c2b2I added the sifted potato starch bit by bit always carefully stirring as before. At the end I added a pinch of baking powder,  half an orange juice, a pich of cinnamon,  vanilla and the orange skin. Mixed carefully as before. 20160111_184836.thumb.jpg.5b9838cc037368 Then I cooked it in the static oven at 180ºC  for an hour. It's important to start with a cold oven, turning it on only after putting the cake inside. After an hour I checked if it was ready and then left it on a grid to cool down. The result is a very big cake that lasts for days (not in my home ;)),20160112_110522.thumb.jpg.8d2e7e21b2906a  best eaten with any sort of tea or caffelatte. If you want to reduce the doses you must half everything and use 4 eggs.

      I firmly believe that Braggie will never admit that any part of parenting is/was fun.  Look how she is now with Shiloh and the current crying babies and how much she really really really really doesn't want twins. 

      Braggie lives to be a martyr, so to her hardisthesameasgood. Good in the sense that the world will see how hard her life is, how painful the pregnancies, what a selfless martyr she is, what a wonderful mother she is because she endures all the hardness and pain and crying and twins, and martyrdom because Jesus. 

      Braggie will not have happy fun memories of motherhood because to her it's not happy, none of it At. All. Ever.

      I doubt seriously her children will have any fun memories of their childhoods with their buzzkill, suck out the all the joy, M is for Martyr mother.

      That's a whole lot of words to say "Don't watch the documentary, It's false because I say so! And my mom was the godliest prophet ever. Gwen 4EVA!"

      Exactly… and “y’all stay on board, you hear!”  Only a brief word about the loss of her husband at the end and no word about the loss of other lives.  Seemed to me like a sales pitch for Weigh Down classes.

      Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah posted this lengthy praise of her mother on the Weigh Down Ministries FB page…

       

      Thanks for sharing the long passage by Elizabeth. It is amazing to see the mindset that is still a part of RF. As I read through it I felt a mixture of sadness and anger. 
       

      I felt sadness because it is clear that the leaders of RF are completely blinded. They want to dismiss the documentary as “false accusations” from “enemies of God.” They want to claim that they have the TRUTH (always fully capitalized) and everything else is lies. From things Gwen taught while we were a part of RF, I know that if a prominent religious leader was killed in a manner such as she was she would have said that it was God’s judgment. But this writing makes it clear that they will not examine what they have done and people will continue to be hurt and abused by their controlling practices. 
       

      I felt anger because there is no remorse for anything they have done. The documentary brought that out regarding the death of the Smith boy - according to Gwen they did nothing wrong. They will not consider the stories of real experiences of real people that have damaged and, in some cases, destroyed lives. However I do believe that the lack of responsibility will lead to greater consequences.

      Besides this, it looked like a nice wedding, the video was well made, everyone seemed happy, the lack of Josh was refreshing. I know only some of the brothers were groomsmen but given TLC wasn't filming they might have chosen to include him if they'd wanted to. That or they edited him and fam out because they felt it wouldn't go down well with the fans, and that's fine by me too. They get the message, on some level.

      I also think the more ''younger Duggars'' wedding we will see, the less Josh will be included in the wedding parties. The smaller kids are probably not even that close to him. Josh married in 2008 and thus left home when Justin was 6 YO. I doubt they are that close (thank goodness).

      It’s always so freaking annoying when you’re supposed to have a phone call at a certain time and it never comes…

      LOL, I read the Bible an awful lot for someone who's a hard-materialist atheist. But, then, I was raised culturally Christian, & US culture is so deeply steeped in Christianity, it's difficult to escape it.
      I like the Bible websites, tending to like the gateway one better than the hub one, for usability reasons. I really like that they have all the versions, all the different books, & all the commentaries. I did buy a Bible, in college lol, a big fat scholastic bible with all the books & a ton of footnotes. I started an atrocity project with it long ago & it's full of post-its.
      I've definitely developed a preference in versions, liking the NIV best so far, it's marvelously clear & the least disappointing when I dig into the depths. The KJVs are muddled & difficult to understand. Recently I've gotten to thinking that's why all these my-own-private-patriarchal-cult & grifters & et al like the KJVs so much, cuz they're a more obscure version that requires more 'explaining', is more open to interpretation. In addition to the obvious historical reasons why, like feeling all connected to the Pilgrim eras, & sounding all Shakespearean.
      I mostly end up reading the Bible as a fact-checking exercise, wondering what the verses & chapters say, the verses that people will have in their bios or social media postings. Tho' I do a fair amount of wondering why people think a thing that ostensibly has Biblical roots, digging around that.
      Fwiw.
