It's also quite a flexible recipe that can take a lot of tweaking before it goes horribly wrong.


What temperature do you bake at and for how long? (I'm allergic to wheat and my daughter just baked an almond cake that I can't eat and I drool a bit every time I pass by it in the kitchen)

As an affront to both the coeliacs and the yehudi in the thread, I made whole-wheat bagels with extra leaven today. First time trying bagels and they turned out okay. A little chewier than I like.

This thread is not telling me what I should be buying anymore!

I just ate a handful of triscuits.

I usually chuck them in at 180 Celsius, they don’t take more than ten or so minutes so I just watch them until they go golden brown.

Another thing I’ve started to do recently with pancakes/fritters/etc is to soak a handful of oats, drain, blend and add to the mix. It helps keep the end product moist; gluten free baking often dries out and goes inedible quickly but with this method the texture stays soft for a couple of days. Also better if you soak in something interesting like apple juice to add flavour.

I feel obliged to add something about games to stay vaguely on topic - as tempted as I am by the Pax KS I know three people who bought the new Pamir who have collectively played exactly four times, and then they moved into transhumanity and emancipation which got played precisely zero times. So as much as I love Porfiriana and Pamir I think I’m going to resist any more Pax games in general, they seem to be too much of a tough sell to get played.

Groceries. My last trip to the grocery store was 24 days ago other than a small bag I got from a farm stand this past weekend. Figured it was as good a time as any to clean out the pantry, I scrubbed down my fridge yesterday since its almost empty. I found a 11 year old box of a taco kit - the tortillas were solid discs but the seasoning and sauce were still fine, LOL. I think I can get thru the weekend ......might need to get a little creative but it feels good to basically start from scratch in terms of food, maybe try to eat a bit healthier.

I tossed the tortillas and just used the sauce/seasoning on some chicken, LOL.

Legomancer wrote: Buying the Ikoria pre-release bundle for MtG Arena. IT's $50 and includes 50 packs. The money isn't really the problem; I'd spend that easily on boardgames, but there's nothing out there I want to buy now. The thing is, do I want 50 packs of a set I don't know if I'll like yet? That's the issue and what I need to figure out soon.

There must be spoilers. I glanced at mythicspoiler.com/ and if it's this set, it looks like the wordiest set of all time. There's good and bad there. There can be cool interactions, but it can also lead to really complicated board states and a puzzle every turn isn't everyone's cup of tea. Makes me think of Kamigawa from a THOUSAND YEARS AGO.

I have a birthday next week and I've been trying to purchase a game from the local store. But they have none of what I've asked for in stock. It's become a little frustrating. They're frikkin' huge, but I keep striking out. It's hard when you can't browse.

I suppose this isn't the right thread for this.

Common mistake. You want "What PURCHASES are RESISTING YOU?", two threads over.

Trying not to buy Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. The game looks very promising and interesting but no one can guarantee that I will not get bored of jumping on trees in the end...

Still waffling on this Pax: Renaissance reprint. I'll check back in a week.
