The Happy and Sad game @ 10:06 pm

Tags: , , , ,

I'm happy that I grew a new skill today. I did something that was practically cooking. I made chipotle pork tenderloin, and even turned the targetting computer off and made minor substitutions and additions to the ingredients. Then when dark_of_night got back from Tartan Hall, I fired up some charcoal and magically produced a marinated tenderloin. It turned out great.

I'm sad that my mom was evacuated from her house because of the fire in Brea. (that link is actually a really useful fire map courtesy of the OC Register)

I'm happy that she's safe and that that particular fire seems to have done little damage.

I'm sad that meatheads can say things like, "I don't have a problem with torture"

I'm happy that I called her "repellent and barbaric."

I'm sad that she replied with a dancing smileyface icon.

I'm happy that I offered to buy her a t-shirt for Christmas that reads "I approve of torture."

My favorite exchange?

I believe verse Mom 3:23 reads "Two wrongs don't make a right."
Forgive my ignorance, but what verse, specifically, are your referring to?


Maybe the KJV doesn't have mom. shrug.

I was afraid to ask him where in the BIble it taught us to do wrong. I was afraid because he might say we should treat the detainees like Moses treated the Midianites.

I believe in Physics class one day, you talked about Tycho Brahe. His name has been stuck in my head all day bc I finally watched "The Godfather" and the name Luca Brasi reminded me of Tycho's. You know Luca - "Thank you for inviting me to your daughter's wedding..."

But it ends with a happy. So that seems ok.

I love the tags that come up when I mouse over the torture link:

Heavens Grocery Stores Chickens
End Times Cutters Air Force

And it changes every time!

Notes to self:
I will not register on that forum and jump into the fire with as much rocket fuel as I can carry.

I wonder if those other posters have read the TOS lately.

I will not write my arguments out here, as I am preaching to the converted.

Recipe for reference

This is a delicious grilled pork tenderloin recipe with a southwestern flare. What you end up with is a saucy tenderloin packed with flavor.
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes


2 pork tenderloins, 12-16 ounces
1 8 ounce can of tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup cider vinegar
5 canned chipotle peppers, finely chopped
5-6 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

To prepare marinade: combine all ingredients, except pork, in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and let cool.
Place pork tenderloins in a shallow pan, pour over marinade. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.

Remove tenderloins from marinade. Make sure to reserve marinade for later use. Preheat grill. Place pork on grill rack and cook over medium high indirect heat for 35-45 minutes. Brush occasionally with reserved marinade during the first half of the cooking time only. Remove from heat and let stand for 10-12 minutes before slicing.
