Collapse 2019 Survey still OPEN!



Get your Opinion Counted before it Closes!



 



Visit the new Cooking Zone of the Doomstead Diner



 



Amazingly for many reasons, the Doomstead Diner Blog & Forum has been perking along here for 7 years this February, and in celebration we are holding a 2 week long Pahhhty.  For this party, I am Chief Cook & Bottlewasher, my role on the Diner Forum.



There is of course much I could write on the progress of Collapse through 2018 as I have witnessed it from my perch on the Last Great Frontier of Alaska, the ever escalating geopolitical conflits, the ever shrinking economic pie, the various climate related disasters that escalate in size and cost every year, the social problems of increased drug use and overdoses, the mass shootings…there is no shortage of Collapse topics to deal with in any given week.



Of all of them though, I don't think here in the FSoA (Fascist States of Amerika for those of you not familiar with my acronym) there is any better example of Collapse than the election of Donaditry Trumpovetsky and the ongoing political Clown Show going on in Washington, from Goobermint Shutdowns to Border Walls to trade disputes with the Chinese to Taxation disputes to the Student Debt Time Bomb… the list goes on and on here.



At the center of all this mayhem here in the FSoA is the POTUS who got elected not by a majority of the population but by a majority of the "Electoral College", a system devised originally by the "Founding Fathers" to prevent the lower classes from running amok, and since refined with a lot of gerrymandering of districts designed to make sure the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor.  The Founding Fathers of course were the Aristocracy of the new "United States", they weren't the Indentured white servants, black slaves and certainly not the indigenous people, who were being exterminated as quick as possible.  Even to do that though, the rich have to co-opt at least some subset of the poor population to get elected, and the ones they use to do this are the poor white working class of Amerika, setting them against the other large population of poor people we have in this country, the Black, Brown, and Latino population.  The politics have morphed into politics of a racial divide rather than an economic divide setting one group against the other for their increasingly more meager slice of the great wealth pie that used to exist, but is now rapidly dwindling away with the supply of cheap fossil fuels.  In the words of Jay Gould:



Image result for jay gould quotes I can set one half of the working class



So, in my Cooking Video explaining how to properly Boil an Egg, I didn't do a send up of El Trumpo himself, but rather of the folks who voted him into office.  Hope you enjoy it, along with the many other foodie vids I am currently producing for the new Diner Cooking Zone show.  You will NOT enjoy it of course if you were one of the folks who actually DID vote for Trumpty-Dumpty. lol.  Perhaps though it may encourage you not to make the same stupid mistake twice.  One can only hope.

Doomstead Diner 7th Anniversary 2nd Breakfast: Bacon & Eggs Over EZ
« Reply #1 on: February 04, 2019, 04:34:43 AM »
For this Cooking Zone vid, I took it a bit more seriously, and instead of further excoriating the Trumpofsky Syndrome Sufferers I focused on the importance of having good portable equipment to cook on for SHTF Day if you have to GTFO of Dodge in a hurry due to a Wildfire, Flood or other Climate Disaster of some sort that might come to your neighborhood, well, TOMORROW!  Ya never know with these things.  Trust me, I have experience with it.  Until you have made it through a 7.0 Earthquake shaking your digs so bad you think they will come down on your head, you just do not know how suddenly such a thing can come to you.

The principles are important also if you end up falling off the economic cliff and are placed in some type of Section 8 Housing, often cheap motel rooms sometimes for whole familes.  How do you cook in such a place and keep your costs down rather than eating garbage at fast food joints?  I hope to help people in this situation with my experience with it as an OTR Trucker.  I spent many nights in "Bates Motels", and did my cooking the way I am doing it in this video.  In all probability, you will fall off the economic cliff before you get drowned by the rising ocean levels, so this is worthwhile knowledge to accumulat.

The breakfast was quite good as well.  Bonus for me.  :icon_sunny:

Diner 7th Anniversary 2nd Breakfast: 1 Egg Cheese Omelet
« Reply #2 on: February 05, 2019, 02:01:08 PM »
In this morning's Diner 7th Anniversary Breakfast Egg Vid, we focus on the difficulties of getting small portions for one person living alone and how to prepare small meals economically.  We also use our Section 8 cooking apparatus, the Electric Hotplate, to help Diners who have had to evacuate due to Wildfire, Flood, Earthquake or other disaster to prepare their own meals rather than eat out and spend a lot of money unnecessarily while on the road.  These are areas of my expertiese developed over my years as an OTR Trucker.  I am a DOER, not just a Talker.  I took great offense at that comment from Eddie.

Diner 7th Anniversary Appetizer: Cooking & Canning Liver Pate now DONE!

Liver Pate Canned
Liver Pate Canned

OK!  The Pate is DONE!  The video is DONE!

All documented, every step in the procedure of Cooking & Canning this scrumptious, high protein and high fat meal to be ready for SHTF Day on your Prep Shelf, no refrigeration!  :icon_sunny:

As regular Diners should know, I made this video and prepared this Appetizer for the Diner 7th Anniversary Surf & Turf Dinner in response to further DISSING from the current Chief Negative Waves Diner, Eddie.

Recipe includes:

3lbs Chicken Livers
1/4 lb Hot Lousiana Sausage (10 years old)
1 Large White Onion
2 Hard Boiled Eggs
4 Tbsp Cream Cheese
4 Tbsp Butter


The Pate looks absolutely mouth watering and it is all I can do to keep from eating some of it now, but I am holding off for the 7th Anniversary Doomstead Diner Dinner.  I still have Main Dish work to do on the STEAK🥩 & the KING CRAB🦀, so actual Dinner night is probably still a few days away.  The pic at the top of the page shows 2 of the Canned Jars (of 6) as well as the reserved Pate to eat fresh with before consuming dinner.

I'll have the videos up before the Main Dinner night of course.

What is the Over-Under that I die of Botulism in 6 months after eating the first Can as Eddie claims? lol.

More likely that the smoking and drinking will kill you before botulism. I have faith in your residual lab skills.

That risk is significant, of course.  However, I will try to hold on long enough to demonstrate my points.  :icon_sunny:

You are going to get a real demonstration of a lab gnome at work in the kitchen on this one.  Some things are like riding a bicycle.  Once you know how to do it, you never forget.

If I have time and feel like doing it, it should look even better on Dinner Night.  :icon_sunny:  I might make up fresh Crouttes for it to Plate Up and look like a real high end restaurant like my old establishment of Capsuto Freres quality appetizer.  This is a bit of time consuming work though and far as I am concerned, I can just slap some on a slice of a baguette, pop it in my mouth and call it good.

OK, I decided to make up some Fresh Crouttes for the Liver Pate on Diner 7th Anniversary Dinner Night:icon_sunny:

Here's a vid on making your own fresh Crouttes for your Appetizers.  They work with many different types of appetizers.  Included in this vid are principles of using the Right Knife for the Right Job, Modern Knife Technology and making a good looking dish to plate up. 😋

Diner 7th Anniversary3rd Breakfast: 2 Egg Vegan Omelet
« Reply #11 on: February 07, 2019, 02:47:31 AM »
I didn't want the Diner Vegans to Starve during the 7th Anniversary Week, so I did up an all Vegan Omelet a couple of days ago.  This is a 3 part series, and the real CLIMAX is in Part 3!  You won't fucking believe it.  I don't even believe it. lol.

Video also includes a little of the history of the Great Alaska RV Adventure I took with Eddie & Mrs. Eddie last September.

The Omelet was great.  Took me 2 days to eat it though.  Sorry it is a little out of focus.  For some reason the auto-focus wasn't working right.   I can't figure out why because it's working fine now. ???  :icon_scratch:

Diner 7th Anniversary Appetizer: Processing & Canning Liver Pate 1
« Reply #12 on: February 07, 2019, 07:07:23 AM »
2 days ago my Sous Chef & I did the processing and initial Canning procedure for the Diner 7th Anniversary Liver Pate Appetizer.

In this video, you will get the recipe ingradients and method for processing up the Pate, which believe you me is a lot EZier than it was when Grandma made it 50 years ago.  Fucking Food Processors are AMAZING.  I have owned a few Blenders over the years, but this is my first Food Processor.  No Kitchen should be without one.  They don't take all that much of the JUICE to run, a medium size Solar Array should do fine.

In Part 2, we will go over the procedures for Sterilization to hopefully keep from dying of Botulism.  lol.

In this video I also cover the poisoning of our environment with various kinds of household chemicals.

The real CLIMAX is still coming though in Part 3.
