Chill, Christmas, and Cookies: davetheshady: brawltogethernow: shapechangersinwinter: locusimperium: A few years ago, when I was living in the housing co-op and looking for a quick cookie recipe, I came across a blog post for something called “Norwegian Christmas butter squares.” I’d never found anything like it before: it created rich, buttery and chewy cookies, like a vastly superior version of the holiday sugar cookies I’d eaten growing up. About a year ago I went looking for the recipe again, and failed to find it. The blog had been taken down, and it sent me into momentary panic.  Luckily, I remembered enough to find it on the Wayback Machine, and quickly copied it into a file that I’ve saved ever since. I probably make these cookies about once a month, and they last about five days around my voracious husband - they’re fantastic with a cup of bitter coffee or tea. I’m skeptical that there is something distinctively Norwegian about these cookies, but they do seem like the perfect thing to eat on a cold day.  Norwegian Christmas Butter Squares 1 cup unsalted butter, softened 1 egg1 cup sugar2 cups flour1 tsp vanilla½ tsp saltTurbinado/ Raw Sugar for dusting Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Chill a 9x13″ baking pan in the freezer. Do not grease the pan. Using a mixer, blend the butter, egg, sugar, and salt together until it is creamy.  Add the flour and vanilla and mix using your hands until the mixture holds together in large clumps. If it seems overly soft, add a little extra flour.  Using your hands, press the dough out onto the chilled and ungreased baking sheet until it is even and ¼ inch thick.  Dust the top of the cookies evenly with raw sugar. Bake at 400 degrees until the edges turn a golden brown, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven. Let cool for about five minutes before cutting the cooked dough into squares. Remove the squares from the warm pan using a spatula. So I tried this recipe. And it is GREAT. It basically makes the platonic ideal of commercial sugar cookies, only in bar form. When I give them to people (which I do a lot, because this is one of those simple recipes where the results seem very impressive), I just tell them they’re sugar cookie bars. Life hack: add white chocolate chips and sea salt

Cats, Tumblr, and Animal: animal-factbook: Cats are good at household chores, despite what they might lead you to believe and will perform tasks like cleaning toilets, changing lightbulbs, and dusting.

Af, Bitch, and Drinking: When you take 4 shots and dont feel anything, so you take 3 more and they all hit you at once Nothing had me more fucked up then when I got drunk for the first time. I'm not a drinker. I'm at this house party with my bro Omari. There was some girls playing drinking games. Shit look easy. First off the liquor look like water so it must be light work. I took my first shot and my whole chest felt like the fire nation was causing havoc. The burning sensation went away. Wow this how being drunk feels? I took more shots than Kobe. I go to the bathroom to check my self out. 2 seconds later my whole life changed. It was like getting hit with a tekken combo. Life it self was beginning to lag. I shouted my homie name. Every single syllable, pronunciation and sound that came out my mouth was straight gibberish. I needed sub titles. I'm all the way fucked up. My whole body symmetry shifted. I took one step and couldn't feel the ground. My next step I came down hard af. My little ACL evaporated to dust. I pulled a Paul George. I'm Yelling "man down, man down" niggas wasn't paying me no mind. Matter fact the Dj turned the music up. Unforgettable by French was playing and you know New York niqqas wanna clap it out every where they go. Everybody getting lit to the beat while I'm in last stand behind the bathroom door. My nigga Omari ain't check on me once. One bitch got so drunk she took a shit in the bathtub next to me instead of getting help. People who drink a different breed. I died that faithful night. I'm writing this from heavens gates.

America, Facts, and Family: OPERATION RED WINGS JUNE 28, 2005 WILL ALWAYS PLACE THE MISSION FIRST. IWILL NEVER ACCEPT DEFEAT WILL NEVER QUIT. I WILL NEVER LEAVE A FALLEN COMRADE. “On June 28, 2005, four SEALs – Lt. Michael “Murph” Murphy, Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Danny Dietz, Sonar Technician 2nd Class Matthew “Axe” Axelson, and Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Marcus Luttrell – were carrying out an op to place eyes on known terrorist Ahmad Shah. After positioning themselves amongst the shale of a mountainside in the Hindu Kush east of Asadabad, they were compromised by a trio of supposed goatherders. Deciding it would violate the ROE to kill the three Afghans, the SEALs let them go and immediately moved out. Just a few short hours later, the men were fighting for their lives, and when the proverbial dust settled, only Marcus Luttrell had physically survived.” (excerpt from “The Brotherhood: Remembering the 9th Anniversary of Operation Red Wings”) 12 years may have passed but the pain of those losses remains fresh for the families of the men who died. Some families have worked tirelessly to build a long-term memorial to one or more of the men. marcusluttrell works with a number of charitable organizations but it is his Lone Survivor Foundation that stands out among the others. The LoneSurvivor Foundation is a 501(c)3 that works to help wounded servicemembers and their families heal both physically and mentally. Marcus felt the environment in which he recovered from his own devastating injuries would benefit others, and he uses his foundation to make it happen. Others such as the Axelson family – Matt Axelson was one of the three SEALs killed during the firefight on the ground – strive to help other military families and organizations in various ways while building a business as a constantly-growing tribute to their loved one. Axelson Tactical manufacturers high-quality firearms and although they’re a new company, they’re certainly a promising one. They do it all in Matt’s memory. The sacrifices made on that shale-strewn mountainside in 2005 are important to remember for many reasons. First and foremost is the simple fact that sacrifices such as those made by the men of OperationRedWings are what make America, America. We enjoy more freedoms than any other nation thanks to the blood, sweat, and tears of our military.

Facebook, Facts, and Fire: 5 New BOMBSHELL facts have emerged about Omran, the Aleppo boy" who went viral in August of 2016. VIDEO 1 of 2: Father of Famous AleppoBoy Just Exposed How the US & White Helmets Lied to the World... ☕️🐸 REPORT: (link to article in our bio) Covered in dust and bruises with hair disheveled from having survived a blast, the blood beginning to crust over half his face, a seeming placidity — hands anchored on his legs, all-but unmoving — could not mask the stoic trauma in little OmranDaqneesh’s eyes. . Gazing hauntingly from the back of an ambulance in Aleppo in August 2016, Omran’s image snared the heartstrings of the world — even those previously hardened to the hopelessly tangled morass in Syria — transmogrifying into a single human form the suffering of innocent Syrians at the whims of entire nation-states embroiled in proxywar upon war in the name of political squabbles. . But, while the West took up Omran’s cause, Westerners did so under the pretense the child had been bloodied by an airstrike or missile launched by the forces of Syrian President Bashar AlAssad or their allies from Russia — his image rekindling the fire of contention propaganda designed to support the United States’ goal of regime change. . But it was a lie — from mass media’s parroted claims the boy had escaped an airstrike within an inch of his life, to bandages eventually wrapped around Omran’s head — virtually none of the narrative stemming from the starkly persistent image bore the weight of truth... . - Continued - . 💭 Read the FULL Report: (link in bio) http:-thefreethoughtproject.com-father-of-famous-aleppo-boy-just-exposed-how-the-us-white-helmets-lied-to-the-world- 💭 Join Us: @TheFreeThoughtProject 💭 TheFreeThoughtProject 💭 LIKE our Facebook page & Visit our website for more News and Information.
