Getting robbed by a burglar made me realise I was being robbed by student accommodation

First of all lets set the scene…

It’s 6:20am and I hear two loud bangs on my bedroom door. It’s my Scottish flatmate informing me that we have been robbed, I mention the fact that he is Scottish because hearing you have been robbed is bad enough, but hearing it in a harsh Scottish accent is a tad unsettling. 776 more words

法式熬龙虾-Lobster Fricassée

原料:熟龙虾一只(生的放入盐水中煮1-2分钟)。将龙虾肉和壳分离开。savoy cabbage (绉叶卷心菜)6片,黑白胡椒粉少许。姜粉一小勺。盐少许,黄油50克。橄榄油25克。水200毫升(ml)。香菜(欧芹薄荷之类的都可以)。柠檬半个。(还有一味调料叫 allspice berries, 没有买到,大家有的话可以加一点)

做法:

1.将龙虾壳加水150毫升,煮15分钟,做高汤(stock),加入少许黄油,略煮,滤去龙虾壳,最后高汤汁应在50毫升左右。

2.白菜切成1厘米宽的长条, 锅加少许黄油,下菜略炒,加盐少许,水少许,加盖煮5分钟。滤去水。

3.另取一锅,加少许橄榄油,胡椒粉,姜粉,龙虾,白菜,拌炒一分钟,加入汤汁,大火烧开,记入柠檬汁。

装盘时白菜放入最底层,然后是龙虾,最后浇上汤汁。如果是母的应该有一些龙虾仔可以撒在上面。最后点缀一点欧芹,摆上龙虾头就好了。

此菜来至法国艾菲尔铁塔上的名厨Louis Grondard, 他解释说,这道菜的全名是:”Lobster Fricassee with pepper and Ginger” 卷心菜含有大量的维生素,是欧洲老百姓喜欢的菜肴,而且价格低廉,在这里很好的平衡了这到龙虾大餐。

其实老邢觉得这道菜的精华还有龙虾高汤和胡椒姜粉的作用。高汤能让龙虾的味道更浓郁,却不油腻。而且让味道清淡的卷心菜有一种说不出来的清甜,简直是化腐朽为神奇。 35 more words

Hail Dear Ol' State

So almost a month ago I moved from Atlanta to Starkville, Mississippi to attend Mississippi State University’s College of Architecture. Although I went with an unsure heart, the past few weeks has shown me that people were right when they said “No matter where you go, college will be great b/c of the people and the freedom.” 519 more words

5 Reasons Why Young Brits Decide To Join ISIS

A horrific nightmare to some, born out of the depths of years of political tension, misread scriptures and a thirst for power. An phenomena largely originating in the Middle East, where- to the average, and more s0- reasonable individual, language barriers, the differences in culture, religious viewpoints and socialisation would never make a British national contemplate the idea of joining such a sect….right? 1,884 more words
