Seriously Steve 4: Judging and Hating

Seriously Steve 3: Relaxing His Grip as He Prepares to Turn 70?
Coconut Flan posted a topic in MaxhellContinued from here: I have no idea what that photo is. As Steve prepares to move on to the next decade of life, is it too much to try to control all his sons? Has he finally realized that they are independent adults and it isn't his job to monitor them? Is he feeling his age and wanting to retire from it all?
Seriously Steve 2: She Was a Woman, So She Probably F*cked Up Somewhere
HerNameIsBuffy posted a topic in Maxhellcontinued from here... Thanks @lilith for the thread title.
Palimpsest posted a topic in MaxhellWe've been neglecting Steve recently, and I thought it might be good to keep comments on his "seriously" posts together rather than scattered in other threads. He's on about the Beast again. All TV but just "most" movies? I wonder what movies pass Steve's tests? I'd be willing to bet that Life of Brian doesn't! And his follow-up to this one should be fun. He's going to justify computer use as Godly (so long as you have an accountability partner, of course. ) And this one is fun from April 11: But of course he is talking about the seed of his loins. Basically the same routine, year-after-year, unless you have a vasectomy. Which would be sinful. But if you have a successful reversal you can dine out on it for ever and plant 5 more seeds. Or in the case of the adult daughters who are still living at home because you won't set them free, you can count on the growing season to be 35+ years. Of control and computer monitoring. What is so wrong with loving the world? God supposedly created it and put all those nice things in it to be enjoyed. It is only in Steve's twisted universe that extreme sheltering and rejecting the world is so important. He'll quote I John 2: 15 back at me, I'm sure: "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." I would argue that the Maxwells love their expensive toys and luxury items like computers, phones, hiking poles, cameras, coffee-makers, Instant pots, and that damn meat smoker. When did the Maxwells last eat any meat that wasn't smoked? And they certainly lust after flesh - proof being all those babies. Also Steve demonstrates pridefulness of his life choices with every word he writes.
Update the About section, Steve
anjulibai posted a topic in MaxhellIt's been over two months since Elizabeth was born and nearly 2 months since Kyle was born, but they have yet to update their About section with them. It almost sounds like Chris and Anna and Joseph and Elissa are expecting again, and due early next year. This is bugging the crap out of me, because it absolutely should not take that much effort to change. I know, it's petty, but they have the freaking time! Come on, Steve, I know you read here, update it!
Anti-fasting lunch: Risotto with radicchio!
laPapessaGiovanna posted a blog entry in Cooking, Baking and Painting in ItaliaTo continue this fantastic anti-fast/feast I decided to make my favourite risotto. I don't know if radicchio is known and grown somewhere else in the world, btw this is it It's a sort of red salad typical of Veneto. I used more or less the amount you see in the pic. Ingredients: radicchio, 2shallots, walnuts, butter, homemade bouillon, Carnaroli rice, half a glass of red wine, boiling water, Gorgonzola cheese, Parmigiano. I put some butter in the pan to melt, cut two shallots in very little piecess and add to the butter. I cut the radicchio leaves and the walnuts in little pieces and add when tthe shallots turn gold. I cooked it for 5-7 minutes, adding some spoonfuls of boiling water to avoid burning. When water evaporates I added rice and toasted for two minutes. Then added the wine, a half glass of cabernet sauvignon. Then I kept the rice covered with boiling water for 15-16 minutes. At the end I tasted, added some salt, nutmeg, pepper, Gorgonzola cheese and Parmigiano. Stirred. Ready for the dish. I am the worst food blogger ever and forgot to take a pic of the dish...off to self flagellate, not, better leaving that to Stevhovah Good lunch to everyone!
Let's SERIOUSLY start the anti-fast: breakfast!
laPapessaGiovanna posted a blog entry in Cooking, Baking and Painting in ItaliaGood morning everyone! Happy anti-fast! And happy birthday to meeee. To seriously celebrate this important day (seriously, a milestone in the history of humankind!)...voila, bread with nutella! Apologies to everyone for the pisspoor quality of pics, you know, I'm trying to un-follow Maxwell's footsteps, but Christopher's genuine talent for ruining any shoot just sticks with me... Directly from the Shelter, here is the recipe for the bread you see in the pic: 50 gr of sourdough, melt (stirring slowly) with 200gr of water (slightly warm 24ºC), leave it rest and air for 20/30 minutes, then add 150gr flour (sifted, I use 100gr whole flour and 50gr manitoba), let it rest (well closed at 21º/22º C) for 12/13 hours (if you do it in the evening, til next morning).Next morning the rested mixture should be full of bubbles.You add 400gr of water (24ºC, keep some to melt the salt and add later) ad stir, let it rest and air for some 20/30 minutes. Then add 100gr whole flour (sifted) and 750gr of your favourite flour (sifted, better if with it is a flour with good strength, otherwise you can mix it with some manitoba). You start to knead [it is important when you knead that you make a movement like folding and then pressing the dough, it helps to develop the gluten chain, it is an instinctive movement, so nothing difficult] and add the water you left with 18/19gr of salt. Work kneading for some 10 minutes. When you feel the knead is soft and homogenous you put it to rest in a warm place (24º/26ºC) for 2,5 hours or until you see it doubles. to increase the final volume during this first fermentation you can (for a maximum of two times) gently turn the dough upside down and fold it on itself like a towel, it's not mandatory but it helps. Then you gently take it and make 3 parts of 550gr ca, let the boulages rest for 15/30 minutes til the knead relaxes. Then gently fold every boulage on itself giving it the shape you prefer. You put it on your unplugged oven's plate to rest for 1/1, 5 hours (covered with some thin foil), you must not directly touch the knead with your hands anymore till it is cooked.When it is rested you take it out and put the oven at 220ºC with a little bowl of water inside, when it reaches the temperature you can make the cut (if you want) on top of your knead and then put it in the oven. It cooks for half an hour then you lower the temperature at 200ºC for another 15/20 minutes. To know if your bread is cooked you knock on its bottom and if it sounds void it's ready.ETA it's better to put it on a grid to cool down. if you like a crunchy crust in the last 10 minutes of cookng you can keep the oven's door slightly open (with a wooden spoon) to let the steam come out and when the bread is cooked leave it for some ten to twenty minutes in the oven (turned off) with the door fully open.I know this recipe seems too much trouble but for me it's worth it. I usually do it once or twice a week, I make a lot and then I freeze what we don't eat so I have a stock for the whole week. Anyway, let's enjoy the breakfast and see you later for the menu of the day (hint: cake...risotto...pizza...)
FundieFarmer posted an event in Community CalendaruntilOh, Maxwell Family....Stevehovah has declared another fast period, so FJ will rebel against his rather nutty religious inclinations by implementing an anti-fast. What is an anti-fast? The anti-fast is FJ's stomping stiletto against Stevehovah's dangerous and manipulative nonsense. It appears that this time, he and his crew will be fasting for seven days to do something or other to their faith life. In turn, FJ will stage an anti-fast, or a period of time where we eat whatever we want, in rebellion of Stevehovah's craziness. How do I participate in an anti-fast? You get yourself somewhere comfy and then you eat whatever you want. It could be some cake, a whole cake, or ten cakes. Pick your vice, and eat however much you want. Boom! You've anti-fasted. Good for you, standing up against the religious craziness that is Stevehovah. FJ does not condone any drinking or eating that may go against any prescribed food and drink regimens, or that would go against a physician's recommendation. Please anti-fast responsibly.
