Hi Lee.

I just went to the library to pick up some stuff I had ordered. I got the comic book Ex Machina and a cook book called The America's Test Kitchen cookbook.

So far I have gotten to the grilled cheese part of the cookbook. They figured out how to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. Here is the recipe if you want to try it out. Be sure and take pictures if you make it so we can see how it turned out!

3 ounces mild cheddar cheese grated (~3/4 cup)
4 slices firm white sanwich bread (they recommend Pepperidge Farm Toasting White)
2 tablespoons butter (preferably salted), melted

1. Heat skillet over low to medium-low heat. Meanwhile sprinkle a portion of cheese over two bread slices. Top each with a remaining bread slice, pressing down gently to set.

2. Brush sandwich tops completely with half of melter butter; place each sandwich, buttered-side down, in skillet. Brush remaining side of each sandwich completely with remaining butter. Cook until crisp, flipping sandwichs back to first side to reheat and crisp, about 15 seconds. Serve immediately.

Isn't that crazy how they butter the bread first instead of buttering the skillet? This recipe makes 2 sandwiches! You can have one and Nibs and Schlop and Sneeches and PB can have the other one.

Hi.

I just read about the spaghetti and meatball section, and there was a section on cheese. It said that Parmesan cheese is the most famous of the granas. Grana is a hard, grainy cheese. Kind of like your last name Lee! Maybe your name means Lee the Hardy, Grainy Cheese. Heh.

Well, Peaches wants me to try to make the peach pie recipe... but it looks too complicated and requires an awful lot of peaches. Does anyone else have any requests?

You know... wouldn't it be more apt to put all this cookbook talk in the FOOD section rather than the "LITERATURE" section.

Maybe it's just me...

Hi.

I just finished the first book of Ex Machina... it was great! There was a lot of political intrigue and it was really intriguing. I can't wait to see what happens next. I'm going to go order the next book from the library right this minute!

Hey.

I just read the second book of Ex Schlopina. It was great, but some of the scenes were a little scary. I can't wait to read the next book, but the library doesn't have it. What should I do Lee?

Hi.

I just read Book the Sixth of the Sandman books. It was good! I spotted two bunnies and one of the stories had a baby gargoyle named Goldie who only said 'Meep'. Just like Schlop! Can you guys imagine what Schlop was like as a baby?

Oh, I guess he was probably just like baby Schlop...

Hi.

I was just reading through Vol 7 of the Sandman Schlop books when I came across this:

Quote:
Still, at the end, the huge bear snuffles contentedly, and stares at the shadow on the ground.

Interesting, huh? They are using snuffles as a verb. I wonder what it sounds like to snuffle contentedly. Snuffles, have you ever snuffled contentedly? The only other bears I know who have names that can be verbs are Schlop and PB.

***

It's me again. Later in the same book I found Schlop's name used as a verb!

Quote:
I've only schlepped them all the way up from the cellar, so hey, why should I mind schlepping them another few miles to the Southwestern Annex?


And here with PB:

Quote:
Carefully the Alder Man removes his clothes, then piles them all in a heap. He PBs around them, in a wide circle, and they turn to stone.

Hi.

I really like this Sandman Schlop book volume the seventh! It is the best one yet. In one panel I saw some books in Dream's library and one of them is 'The Last Voyage of Lemuel Gulliver' by Swift. Mini-nibs did a little research and found out that it is a fictional book - pretty cool, eh? This might be my new favorite fictional book, replacing Hamster Huey and the Gooey Kablooie.

Nibs - guess what? You were name-dropped in Sandman #8! Check it out:

Quote:
Jim? Show Gunga Din to the purser's cabin, and tell Mr. Stewart he's bunking with the men. And tell his Nibs how lucky he is on the way.

Hey.

I recently picked up two books on tape. One is America: the book as read by the Daily Show guys, and the other is Wigfield as read by Stephen Colbert and the two other authors. I'm planning on loading them on my Schlop Pod and listening to them during my workouts. I do the rowing machine.

Also Neil Gaiman's book Fragile Things just came in today, so I will pick that up next week.
