Beanie level: The Goblin’s underpants

So many people like pumpkin everything, but I love cranberry everything! Those are cranberry crackers, cranberry cheese, and cranberry orange relish. Delish!

My Country ep 12, Gah! Hwi, Bang Won! Who says Jang Hyuk isn’t the lead?!

    I didn’t care if Jang Hyuk was a lead or not because I know Yi Bang-won will be calling the shots. Joseon was Yi Bang-won’s country.

Trans-Siberian pathfinders with Lee Sun Gyun and buddies taking the 11-day train trip across Siberia. Third class looks awfully claustrophobic and hot, and only 2 toilets for 54 people? Even the guys had a hard time eating the “pasta” – remind me not to order that or the sausage buns for that matter. Gosh, only 2 days down and 9 more to go on that train (gulp). If I ever go – and that is a BIG if – I’ll be sure to pack nutritious food and go business class or not at all. I can’t decide if this is entertaining . . .

Sure, egads. I doubled the recipe and used chopped pecans in one, and chocolate chips in the other. Hope you like it! (Heh, flour splotches show how loved this recipe is – the book falls open to this page!)

I like baking banana bread when the temps drop. This long lost recipe showed up in a box in Mom’s basement when I lvisited. It’s the best, I think because it calls for baking powder and soda. Dinner.

    That looks delicious. Are you willing to share your Mom’s recipe?

      Hey egads aka Dame Maggie, I had to post the recipe by itself, but look for it in the comments feed. ♥

    Hooray for recipes!
    Eating banana bread with creamy peanut butter is so delicious. Especially if it’s the next morning after you bake it and you warm it up in the microwave with 10- 15 seconds~. I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it.

    I love banana bread. I cut out sugar from my diet about 2 years ago, and I’m usually not bothered not having things with sugar, but banana bread always makes me go through withdrawals 😭

VIPs could start counting down the days until G-Dragon’s discharge date as he is returning soon to the public eye. Instead of November 2019, G-Dragon’s discharge date is moved to October 26, 2019. (Allkpop news).
G-Dragon should start his own company upon his return from military service.

    So that makes 5 weeks to wait. I seriously how BB and their solo career will turn out post-military (Taeyang is the only with a clean image).

      According to the article (and what I remembered from back when he enlisted) the original date was November 26 but it was moved up earlier this year to Oct. 26. I’m just thinking it’s a fun reminder cause it’s coming up soon !

    I think it was the Prosecutor. Looks like they kept in touch to work on this hospice/care center.

      That’s what I thought, but it seemed like something more. Okay, thanks. I don’t think I’m particularly satisfied with the ending – it seemed rushed like Let’s Eat 3 when Doo Joon had to leave for military service. (Don’t they know the date for that and the date for the drama before hand?) But I thought the year gap and Shi Young hanging on and Yo Han’s explanation that their love was strong enough to endure – (and then he was watching her incognito) I dunno, it wasn’t enough for me. Their chemistry was there, but it felt anemic (heh). I’ll give it some more thought and post on Open Thread on Friday. Thanks Blue (mayhemf)

        Yeah. I hate time skips and this twisted form of Noble idiocy.
        And even the nurse changing her tune came too sudden. Was it because he was against kerobim?
        This was not a romance drama so they should have skipped all this. The airport kiss should have been the ending imo.

          Definitely true about the airport kiss. Not to mention how Shi Young’s family was SO hard on her about her father when she did everything she could to help him. It was just as traumatic for her and they gave her no support. ANd what about them ALL working in the same hospital, mom, dad (at one point), sister, aunt, and Shi Young – I dunno. I really wanted to like it, but . . . more on Friday. 🙂

Park Seo Joon is 2019’s popular commercial, movie, and drama actor! (E-News Exclusive interview this week). Here’s my fan art when I fell♥ for him in Witch’s Romance~

Know what? I didn’t do a single thing today on a lovely day off. This is my light lunch of fresh mozzarella, garden basil, and an ambrosia salad with blueberries. Life is simple for a day at least~

Law of the Jungle is one of those shows whose concept is hard to explain. Idols/celebs go to remote and often dangerous places in the world and try to survive. Leader Byungman is the heart, soul, and brains of every team. This series is in the lost jungle of Thailand and, in a nutshell, the team of 5 or 6 people has to spend the first 24 hours without their fearless leader, Byungman. So, in pictures, here’s the bumbling effort they made to build a shelter. (Pic 1) – the team floats in on a thatched roof raft. (Pic 2, 3) – the team rips off the thatched roof and sets it up as a shelter. The raft remains on sand, untouched. So I’m thinking, “Surely someone will drag the solid raft over to create a safe sleeping surface. After all, it’s in one piece and ready made for the situation.” But no. Not one of them thinks to do that. (Pic 4) Next day, Byungman shows up and starts splitting bamboo to create a sleeping surface. (Pic 5) Then, someone sitting on the raft says, “Oh, we can use this. I didn’t see it [to use] before.” (Pic 6, 7) Raft used for survival shelter thanks to Byungman. Five people stranded in the jungle and not a single solitary one of them thinks to use the already made raft as a safe surface? It’s like they never watched Law of the Jungle before. Remind me not to sign up for this reality show. It’s a disaster waiting to happen every single week!

    you know what i am curious about.. how much of this show is farce..
    i wish people who live or know about any of these places could throw some light

    As per knetz some solid proof have been given over the years that this show is an ultimate super high level of farce (beyond what you can imagine)

      I’m fascinated by the disconnect between a lot of the celebs on the show for stuff like traipsing through the wild and/or swimming at night in the ocean to find food. Who knows how much is staged. Still , it’s a weird concept all around no matter how you look at it.

        he he..
        but i guess you are right to the extent that difficult or not, it is just fun to experience weirdness and “wilderness”

    There was an episode with Yugeom from GOT7 where they were building a “shelter” son the beach and because of storm they couldn’t sleep. The next day everybody was exhausted and when they were looking for food, few hundred meters there was a half cave with ancient paintings which was a perfect place to build a sleeping place. Why they don’t consider fruit as a nutritious food. Just a coconut has so much proteins as any meet. You can have enough energy with just fruit and some roots.

    Who will go to Patagonia to Law in the Jungle in fall? What you can find to eat while trekking on Glacier Grey in the national park of Torres del Paine? In pampas you could catch some guanacos but you have to be a great hunter to do so. I’m sure if they had caught one they would eat it in one go and don’t think about the days to follow.

Finished Her Private Life. Kim Jae Wook is a hottie good kisser and romantic and even cries at all the right times. I also really like Park Min Yong and want to be a fangirl and a curator just like her! Really, the siblings-not-siblings, long lost brothers through no one’s fault, brother who died and the shock amnesia until poof*! and memories flood back, moms who know too much sadness and fathers who paddle in the background over regrets, ambition, friendships, bromnces and love triangles – this drama did all that and more and I loved the feels. But can I just say this? The paintings, and I mean all of the paintings, I hated them! So much for art and gosh, imma head for NYC at this rate and make my splashdown in the art world cuz if that’s where Ryan Gold (love, love, love him) hailed from as a bona fide artist then I’m on the next plane for the Big Apple. Rant over, I’m okay – really, just couldn’t let that go, y’all.

    I liked the mom’s paintings but not Ryan’s. They were kind of creepy.
