Wu Tang Clan - Wolves

A fox hes got a fox.
Mr. Wolf, hes the guy
Who ran the woods and ate Grandma
But a dog is a dog is a dog is a dog
Unlike the wolf, who made a widower of Grandma

Must I flex my cash, to sex your ass
I wet the ave, when I set my path
The vette' dont crash I'm built to long last
Grab my money clip I hit the bong fast
Earn my respect, my checks they better cash
Finger on the trigger wit my nigga Fred Glass
Knuckles is brass, start snuffin you fast
Jumpin outta cabs, grabbin money bags
Next shot go right through your hover craft
You do the math my answer tounge slash
When will ya learn its the return of Shaft
The genuine thriller, the Miller Draft
My force might blur, the Porsche will purr
The apple martini of course its stirred
Ill do the honor, the Shaolin bomber, sharpskin armor, Ill bring the drama

A fox hes got a fox.
Mr. Wolf, hes the guy
Who ran the woods and ate Grandma
But a dog is a dog is a dog is a dog
Unlike the wolf, who made a widower of Grandma

Damn, deficatin on the map, Wu-Tang takin it back, no fakin in the rap
How real is that, you niggas hatin on the fact, that the kid is blazin on this track and hatin on em back
My doe stacked up wit O's, who the mack duckin po po's blowin smoke goes in the 'Lac
To be exact, don't want no hassle wit the stack, in the big apple, we aint ridin apples in the back, yea, its all grillin, how the f**k ya'll feelin, non-stop park killin, on the block we was killin em
The arch villans, when the blood start spillin, any stuck start squealin, body bags we was fillin em
Yea, now I got it in the smash, a ounce ya man wanted and a llama in the dash
Me and my comrades followin the cash, and livin everyday like tomorrow is the last

Flourless Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Mini Blender Muffins

So my wife found this cool recipe for flourless double chocolate peanut butter mini blender muffins :o).

We tried it the other day and decided to make them again today.

If you want to make big muffins, just double the ingredients and cook the muffins for about 15 minutes. Mine burned a LITTLE on the top careful not to let yours burn too.

I didn't actually count the carbs on these BUT, just looking at the ingredients, it is pretty apparent that these have way less carbs than regular muffins, and the bananas + the peanut butter actually gives them a moist texture which is very nice.

Anyway, here are the ingredients:
  • 1 medium/large ripe banana, peeled
  • 1 large egg
  • heaping 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (I recommend using classic storebought peanut butter, and not natural or homemade because it can be oily or separate)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons honey (agave, brown rice syrup, or maple syrup may be substituted)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt, optional and to taste
  • heaping 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips + more for sprinkling muffin tops
Cooking instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Prepare mini muffin pans by spraying very well with cooking spray or grease the pans; set aside.
  2. To the canister of a blender, add first 8 ingredients, through optional salt, and blend on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
  3. Add heaping 1/2 cup chocolate chips and stir in by hand; don't use the blender because it will pulverize them.
  4. Using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop, drop rounded 1 tablespoon mounds into prepared pans. Each cavity should be filled to a solid 3/4 full.
  5. Sprinkle each muffin with a generous pinch of chocolate chips.
  6. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, or until the tops are set, domed, springy to the touch, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. That's a large range with baking time and I find with medium bananas, there's less batter, the cavities are less full, and 8-9 minutes is about right. With a larger banana or slightly more batter in each muffin cavity, 11-12 minutes is right. For these, I used a large banana and baked 11:30. Due to the mini size and oven variance, watch your muffins closely, and bake until done. Allow muffins to cool in pans for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until they've firmed up and are cool enough to handle. It's normal for muffin tops to be quite domed in oven but flatten as they cool. Muffins will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 6 months. I find the muffins get softer over time and taste better on days 2-3 after the flavors have married.

Owsley Stanley and low carb diets

So I was randomly reading on Owsley Stanley and found this on wikipedia:
"Stanley believed that the natural human diet is a totally carnivorous one, thus making it a no-carbohydrate diet, and that all vegetables are toxic.[16] He claimed to have eaten almost nothing but meat, eggs, butter and cheese since 1959 and that he believed his body had not aged as much as the bodies of those who eat a more "normal" diet. He was convinced that insulin, released by the pancreas when carbohydrates are ingested, is the cause of much damage to human tissue and that diabetes mellitus is caused by the ingestion of carbohydrates.
Stanley received radiation therapy in 2004 for throat cancer, which he first attributed to passive exposure to cigarette smoke at concerts,[17] but which he later discovered was almost certainly caused by the infection of his tonsil with HPV. He credited his low carb diet with starving the tumor of glucose, slowing its growth and preventing its spread enough that it could be successfully treated despite its advanced state at diagnosis."

So he basically did low carb for 50 years, starting in 1959. Pretty interesting stuff, right?

I decided to post about it in the Fat Head Group (on Facebook) and I discovered these two other individuals who, apparently, did low carb in the 1700s and 1800s!
Yeaps. this is TOTALLY a fad :oP

Rich people are evil! ...for the cartoons taught me so! :o)

I only reflected on how brainwashed we were with left wing ideas while growing up after moving to the US... If you grew up in the 80s and 90s, this is the type of cartoons you grew up with.

Notice how the rich guy is evil, abuses his employers and doesn't care about anything else other than money.

Does this resonate with your idea of rich people? I wonder if it had anything to do with the fact that this is what you grew up watching as a kid :o).

Just check out the character description of Montana Max:
"Monty is a bullying, spoiled, rich kid who throws world-class temper tantrums. Monty possesses a nasty personality and a very short temper, and uses his wealth for his own amusement, often to the discomfort or belittlement of others. His pastimes include counting his capital, landscape deforestation and rabbit stomping. He also owns heavily polluting industries that make things like elevator buttons and holes. Some episodes feature Plucky fighting those factories as The Toxic Revenger (pun on The Toxic Avenger).

Monty enjoys cheating in all forms of competition; oppressing the weak, terrorizing the timid, masterminding hostile takeovers and watching the compound interest rate climb past twenty percent. Monty is bossy and abrasive and hates fair play, honesty and people who stand up to him. He delights in using his vast fortune to bring misery to others, particularly Buster and Babs. He'll spend any amount of money to spoil their fun, but most often winds up bankrupting himself in the process. Monty is the perfect foil for Buster. The sawed-off bully's temper is matched only by his greed, and Buster is always able to bilk some fast bucks out of Monty.

Deep down, Monty is very insecure and sometimes fears no one likes him. He's right, of course, and occasionally feels the need to call "Acme Rent-a-Friend." Although he yells most of the time, sometimes we get glimpses of the real kid beneath the temper. He lives in the grandest mansion in Acme Acres. The grounds include swimming pools, tennis courts, stables and the like. It's the kind of place that would make Donald Trump envious. It has signs which read "Poverty Stinks," and "Charity Workers Will Be Shot."

Monty's goal in life is to bring misery into the life of happy-go-lucky Buster. He's not particularly fond of anyone in Acme Acres, for that matter. He thinks Babs is a scatterbrain and his only use for Plucky is as a pawn in one of his devious plots."

The point is, rich people are evil! ...for the cartoons taught me so! :o)

Directly from Denmark, we give you VOTEMAN'left wing propaganda!

Ah, got to love the propaganda :o).
Has anybody else noticed how they used a left wing agenda to attract young voters to vote?
"If you don't vote, you don't have influence in climate regulations, agricultural subsidies, chemicals in toys and the amount of cinnamon in cinnamon buns"...
This last one was supposed to be a joke but, interestingly enough, this is what the left strives on: restricting our freedoms, by telling us what we can eat and what is healthy.

My AMAZING low carb pancakes!

So, lately, we've been making these really cool low carb pancakes that I really love :o)

Someone posted a recipe on one of the low carb high fat groups I follow on Facebook (I don't remember which one or who it was) and I adapted the recipe until I was happy with it :o)

Here's what you need:
- 8oz cream cheese
- 6 eggs
- 1 coffee spoon (the REALLY small ones we use for espressos in Europe) of baking powder! (if you put too much, they end up salty and are horrible! I've also made this WITHOUT baking powder and they turned out just fine :o))
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon (optional: don't put it if you don't like cinnamon, though the pancakes turn out WAYYY better if you use it)!

Just mix everything with a blender and put it in a buttered pan!

Alternatively, just get this REALLY cool pancake maker at Amazon, that's what we use:

As for the toppings, use splenda, cinnamon and one of these sugar free toppings (if you can find it, try the peanut butter one! I could only find it in certain Walmarts but...look for it, you won't be disappointed) and a couple of chunks of butter.

Lately I've also been using sugar free versions of "REAL maple syrup" BUT, they have sugar alcohols and I'm still not sure if those are good for you or not...
