Kidist Paulos Asrat or Kidist P. Asrat as she likes to be known in her professional ventures, is the blogger behind cameraluc.blogspot.com and kpasrat.blogspot.com , beautyforbodymindandspirit.blogspot.ca and has contributed to the American Thinker.
Kidist was born in Ethiopia and identifies herself with the Amhara people and considers herself to be Caucasian. Kidist and her family fled Ethiopia around 1974 after the fall of Emperor Haile Salassie. At the time Kidist was roughly 11 years old, the family moved first Paris and then London, and the United States after which they finally settled in Canada. Today Kidist lives in the multi-cultural hub of Toronto, a fact in itself that is baffling with her views.
Kidist works at a clothing store; however there is speculation that she must have family money or support to fund her lifestyle and travels (mainly to NYC).
Kidist is a firm believer in belief that her blog is an intellectual treasure trove, dealing with high-class fashion, architecture, art and social issues affecting North America (Canada & The United States). Not only is her work of a very high quality but greatly appreciated.
However her blog reads far more as her own personal diatribe against, Gays, Muslims, Liberals, Women, Asians, interracial couples and immigrants. Kidist is all for equal opportunity hating.
Kidist's Greatest Hits/WTF Moments:
As a child Kidit presented flowers to the Emperor, this memory is clearly very important to her and has possibly allowed her to build up her elite status in her mind now that she lives in a world far from that of her childhood.
Kidist is not of the opinion that Asian's can understand or play classical music or dance in the ballet. Her expertise in the matter is the fact that she has studied, violin, piano and sung in classical choirs in her youth. The fact that the National Ballet had Chinese principal ballerina, performing in 'white roles' appears to cause her much rage.
Kidist is creepily obsessed with the child of her neighbors, a young white couple they have a child who is approximately three years old. This little boy has a Chinese caretaker/Nanny. Kidist is not pleased by this arrangement and is constantly spying on the child and caretaker, and approaching the parents to 'warn' them. She is also very worried that the caretaker is attempting to lure the child into accepting other races to the point where he will marry an Asian woman.
Not understanding the presence of Native American's in the Thanksgiving Parade.
Immigrants of the Asian/ Muslim persuasion
Kidist has a lot of pent up rage for immigrants, these range from delightful complaints that they are spending more money that herself to the fact that they bring their own language and culture to Canada. Women who dress in their native attire and speak their own language trying to ruin the real Canada (not the native Canadian's mind you). Immigrants ruin the prices of homes and bring with them their own food and scents changing the landscape. Multi -cultural Canada will be the death of Kidist.
Kidist enjoys attacking the Obamaâ€™s (everyone including Bo is fair game), apparently The President is incapable etc and Michelle and the girls have appalling clothing choices.
Kidist occasionally ventures an opinion on movies and award shows. Popular Movies = bad, especially if they have a tinge of race to them. Oh and Tina Fey has a potty mouth.
Kidist is friends with Lawrence Auster and Laura Wood (The Thinking Housewife), and keeps in touch not only by email but has visited them. She treats their words and thoughts as high intellect and quotes them regularly.
Kidist also goes out of her way to not only stare and complain about interracial couples to people serving her in restaurants but does the same for Gay couples. The lack of response she receives from others is perceived by her to be agreement and she appears to be convinced that Canada is full of people who like her are appalled by interracial couples, gays and immigrants but are too cowardly to say so publically and need her to speak out.
Kidist doesn't allow comments on her blog. While you can email her, she is very quick to threaten to report you to the HRC ,the dissonance is strong with this one. You are however encouraged to contribute to her endeavors at publish a book.

More butter obsession
Welllll in order to keep good milk production some grain is necessary for most cows, but what do I know, I'm just a lowly homesteader who can't afford Sierra Nevada butter.
Until I can afford something better, I'll still be enjoying my Kerrygold. Though I long for the day when I can have a milk cow again. Jersey butter FTW. <3

Truth. Cornfields are also highly unpleasant, but hay fields are great.
Golf course at midnight.....
I'm making pot roast tomorrow. I use whole carrots, washed but not peeled and cut into chunks, and an onion or two, quartered. I brown those on high heat with olive oil and a pat of butter, then remove and sear a salted and peppered roast on all sides. Then de-glaze the pan with beef stock and a swig of wine. Add all of that with a few sprigs of rosemary to a roasting pan (or slow cooker if I get up early enough) and cook. I always serve with mashed potatoes and gravy. And that's my unsolicited recipe for a roast. ; )7 minutes ago, Hashtag Blessed said:
@Beermeet and @singsingsing I stand corrected. I've never used baby carrots but I guess I can see how it is an easy time saver. I'd probably still chop them in half at least so they fit on a spoon but that's just my preference I guess. I use big carrots cut into coins because something about carrot coins in my food makes me really happy. (It's the little things in life, right?)
The final product looks nasty to me, but I haven't eaten meat for well over 10 years now so I'm not the best judge. The smashed potatoes look fine I guess, so I suppose this trick sorta works? I mean, that recipe is still sad. Not even a dash of garlic powder? A sprig of rosemary? A bit of celery to liven it up a little? This is why I get a little offended when some* meat eaters act like vegetarians don't eat anything fun when they're out here eating the most boring concoctions I could possibly imagine.
*ETA: I know y'all aren't all like this. It is usually people like the Duggars who act that way. You know, the people who consider tacos to be the most exotic of foreign foods and who's spice racks contain only salt and black pepper.
Your comment about spices cracked me up. I like to cook a lot, and have loads of spices. Well this week i was making a banana bread, and grabbed the cinnamon and measured and dumped it in with the sugar. Except it was cumin. : / Thank Rufus I smelled the cumin right away, or that would've been a very different tasting bread.
If I saw that photo of Jill and her sisters, I would 100% think it was a really happy mum, her two daughters, and their grandmother. It's not just how similar they look, it's the body language, everything.
But I'm so BEC about someone watermarking that photo as if it's a professional one, as everything about it is terrible. Wouldn't think twice about it being so badly framed etc, if it didn't have the watermark.
