Half special!

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Todays feast! A “half special”. Well, in fact it was two… Sometimes you just can’t let the junk-food alone…

Eel

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

In a a discussion some days ago we touched on the subject of eels. It made the Minister think back on child-hood fishing expeditions. Eels are very tough campers… Very hard to get a grip on or break their neck. My cousin caught an eel once. He brought it home and put it on a plate in the fridge. As a surprise for his Mum. Next morning his mother opens and BAM! – like a bat out of hell (or an alien out of a ribcage) the eel shot out of the fridge and slid like a Norwegian Olympic ice skater on anabolic straight over the kitchen floor and disappeared out of the open kitchen door! His Mum got a shock of her life and woke up the whole house with her howling. The fridge was a mess, and apparently the little sucker eel had drank almost half a liter cream out of a jar…

Spike-poked

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

A little image of the slowly healing spike-poked Minister thumb… The little red dot (in the red ring) is the exit wound that now seems to heal up nicely. The entrance wound has still a bit to go. It was more of a gory slip, slide and tear. The exit wound was a rather clean “poke”. However, I hope this is both the first and last time I’m experiencing an exit-wound!

Nat King Cole slaw

Sunday, February 20th, 2011

Ministeriets hemmagjorda Cole Slaw sallad blev här om dan väldigt uppskattad. Därför publiceras receptet bland Ministeriets receptsamling. Basen är vitkål och receptet grundar sig på cirka 300 gram vitkål.

Alla ingredienser hackas lättast med hjälp av en matberedare, men det gÃ¥r förstÃ¥s lika bra med kniv…

Rör ihop och blanda till en sås av:

5 msk Majonäs
1 dl Creme Fraiche
Dijonsenap (efter smak)
1 msk vinäger
0,5 tsk socker
0,5 tsk salt
Svartpeppar (gärna nymald)

Hacka och blanda ner den hackade vitkålen, samt följande i såsen:

1 hackad gul lök
1 hackad Morot

Historiken bakom “Cole Slaw” är rätt intressant. Tydligen uppkom termen Ã¥r 1794 frÃ¥n holländskans “koolsla” som betyder kÃ¥lsallad. Salladen kallades först för “Cold Slaw” fram till 1860-talet dÃ¥ betydelsen att “cole” avsÃ¥g “kÃ¥l” Ã¥terupptäcktes. “Cole” kommer för övrigt frÃ¥n latinets colis. SÃ¥där ja, dÃ¥ var dagens historielektion även avklarad.

För övrigt kan det rekommenderas att avlyssna Nat King Cole under tiden man tillreder denna läckra sallad…

Breeding ground

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

“On the topic that Internet should be a “breeding ground” – well… to put it shortly. I believe that Internet is just like any other type of data, shit in shit out. So when it comes to breeding ground, it’s the human psyche that would be “the problem” not some soul-less “Innerned”. People (read: dictators, church and so forth) have tried to fix this problem for millenniums – but so far no luck. Luckily. What I really hate is when people (regardless sex and sexual orientation) try to preach about what is “right” and what is “wrong”. We all know that. Simple rule of thumb: as long as it’s not illegal, it’s legal. People that cannot understand this concept can also please go ahead and erase themselves from my FB friendlist – and STFU. I don’t even want to know about it. And for the rest of you, Happy New Year!”

(Excerpt from the Ministry of Art & Jump New Year speech, Dec 31 2010.)

Exit wound

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

The shot and then taped up thumb. Note the entrance-hole on the glove…

Had a little encounter with a nail-gun today… For some reason it poked my right thumb. Maybe it was pissed off, what do I know. It was fast as lightning and I didn’t even feel the nail go in, but realized pretty quickly what happened anyway. In fact it went clean through… To make a long story short – it bleeds a lot when you put a nail through your finger. Take my word for it, don’t try this at home… I was forced to make a visit to the local medicine man who could clearly see an entrance wound and an exit wound. Good news! The bullet is not left inside. By the way, when my make-shift bandage was removed it started bleeding again. “Good” they said. “We’ll let it bleed a little before we clean it and tape it up”. Bloody hell, I tell you, those people really like to see blood. Anyway, the medicine man thought I was lucky. (Lucky!?!) It could have been a lot worse. The nail missed the bone, it missed the nail and it will stop bleeding in a couple of days… So, thumbs up, but not really.
