In which I take my LJ 'Friends Only' spiel, and try to give it a fancy Dreamwidth makeover.

This journal has restricted access. Because I am paranoid. All things fannish (icons, meta, etc) will remain public, but RL stuff is access-granted only. Also? I cuss. A lot. If you don't like it, you should probably go look at someone else's journal. Furthermore, this journal is officially rated R. AND SOMETIME'S EVEN HIGHER OMG.

If you can stomach all of the grown-up stuff, comment to this post for access to massive fandom squee and mostly senseless ramblings. Most everyone is welcome. :D

Granted, I prefer 18+, but I won't exactly be checking IDs at the door.

My dinner tonight was awesome. I thought I'd share.

If you guys would like, I'll keep making my foodnerdery posts in recipe fashion, so you can all enjoy them, too.

Buffalo and Burdock Root Tacos

1 tbsp butter
1 half yellow onion
1 or 2 large burdock roots
1 cup ground buffalo
1 carrot
1 teaspoon cumin
pinch cayenne
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup water
corn tortillas
grated pepper jack cheese
spring mix
fresh salsa

-Julienne cut your yellow onion. Set aside.
-Slice your carrot on a very thin bias. Set aside.
-Slice your burdock root, medium slices. Set aside.

Melt butter in a medium (preferably) cast iron or stainless steel skillet.
Add julienned onions and burdock. Cook until onions have partially caramelized. (Caramelizing onions is simple--just brown them deeply, until the onions are sweet and gooey.)
Add buffalo. Cook on medium heat until browned, add spices, and then simmer on low heat.
Add thinly sliced carrots. Cook until barely tender.

Add water as needed, if meat becomes dry. It probably won't, unless it's very lean, but it never hurts to be prepared, right?

Brown corn tortillas over open flame. If you don't have a gas stove, heat your tortillas as you normally would.

Heap buffalo mixture onto tortillas and top generously with grated cheese, spring mix and fresh salsa.

You can also add avocado if you like. :D

I just got really, really sad about cut for BSG 4.5 spoilers )

Can someone make this happen?

And then we'll talk about Kara, eh?

PS-Speaking of Miz Thrace, can anyone recommend some good post-series fic? Preferably Kara, or Kara/Lee-centric, with ensemble appearances? Yes, no, maybe?

RIP Jay Bennett, former member of Wilco. He died in his sleep Sunday night, from, as of now, unknown causes.

Bennett contributed significantly to Summerteeth and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, two of my favorite Wilco albums. He was reported to be something of a musical genius, and, as the two so often go together, extremely temperamental.

What a loss to the musical world, and to the world in general.
