While Rome Burns*

Ivan and I have just feasted on a sumptuous meal of tender Broiled Gluten with Lime Garlic Sauce. MMMmmm good. It took quite a while (2 and a half hours) to proceed from start to finish, but the end result was definitely worth it! For those who are interested, here's the recipe, thanks to Mr. Marsh.

1 cup pre-seasoned gluten flour (season with Mckay's Chicken seasoning)
2/3 cup cold water
1/3 cup peanut butter (chop into dry mix before adding water)

Knead until formed into one dough ball, squish into oven-suitable container (caution, this mixture is akin to Flubber!), and bake for about 2o minutes at 350 until firm. Remove from oven and cut several slits in the dough. Then cover with your favorite salsa (Lime and Garlic in this case) and return to the oven for another 45 minutes or so. Wait eagerly and then carefully remove from the oven. Serve however you like (we had sandwiches) Delicious!

Now, back to those pesky books!

  1. Unfortunately... I'm still confused by your title despite my review of your former blog. Perhaps confusion is the temporarily permanent state in which I shall dwell until finals are over. Oh dear.

  2. Nero is reputed to have "played the fiddle while rome burned".
    side note: it's interesting that the fiddle was simply not invented at this time... more probably he played a lyre...

    This phrase is usually used to mean occupation with frivolus pursuits while things of great import are neglected. I assume joel was working within this context while he feasted on broiled gluten, which btw sounds delicious.

  3. Mmmmmm that was a indeed a delicious meal.
