Sleep is a lovely thing. Anyone get some?
Moose: Large mammal with antlers
Mousse: fluffy dessert
ANy takers on the last one? For some reason I made a batch. What is *wrong* with me? My arm's gonna fall off. B/c you can make it with cream and egg yolks a la whipped-to-death custard, or there's the egg-whites-cream-and-why-do-I-do-this version, and I made one of each to see which I prefer. My right arm is now verrrry unhappy. See, I have no stand mixer. So my arm --- well, let's just say it feels like all nine screws got vibrated loose and I re-fractured th eulna! My hand mixer was almost begging mercy.
Turns out my favorite mousse is "Made By Someone Else".
And, no, I will not do the Jello Instant Pudding whipped into Cool Whip mousse. Which, incidentally, is a "thing" that I didn't know existed till I was experimenting in my kitchen and checking recipes all over the internet.
Happy birthday to William Wrigley, Junior, AKA the Chewing Gum King. Yep, that Wrigley, and also, IIRC, Wrigley Field in pro sports. Born today in 1861. Chewing gum was a thing by the 1870s, but Wrigley made a real big thing of it. He moved from his hometown of Philadelphia, PA to Chicago in or around 1891, with the equivalen tof less than $1000 in modern US money to his name (about $40 back then). Though is parents were Quakers, Wrigley was more a mover-and-shaker. He started selling scouring soap, and offered baking powder as an incentive ---- kind of like banks used to offer toasters if you oepned an account. BUt people used the baking powder more, so he sold *that*, and gave free gum along with it... and People wanted the gum... and eventually Wrigley made enough to buy the CHicago Cubs baseball team.
Soap and ambition apparently lead to baseball team ownership...
Today in 1938, France and the UK decided it was best to conciliate/appease Adolf Hitler. Good going. Really. Great. Awesome. Fan-freaking-tastic idea. Because Hitler *stopped* at the Sudetenland. And always intended to... NOT do so. *headdesk* See, this is why you demand compromise and don't go to conciliation. Compromise is a co-promise so to speak. Both parties get something. In this case, Adolf just got what he wanted, and learned he always could. A year after this, he was occupying Warsaw. And within two years, he had Paris, too.
On which note, I need to heat my shoulder muscle. It jammed, as it does since I broke my arm, and the nerve tingle is making me *nuts*. Almonds, particularly...
