Going into Fall

Time to change for fall, which for me is a time for re-reading "The Lord of the Rings", watching what few trees we have in Dallas change to anything but shriveled-up brown, look up old vampire stores, and generally imagining myself in a northern European location and longing for the nice, cool, foggy and drawn-out falls of my childhood.

Journal Entry

So this month is a bit of a mixed bag, but I'm determined to concentrate on the good!

I'm making steady progress with my latest Tarot project with all of the Major Arcana all finished and sketching on the Aces getting under way. The creator of the Orbifold Tarot (…) made me aware of a really great online printing service for Tarot cards - and other cards if you want ( I have already printed some trial cards and I'm very impressed with the quality of their product and their customer service. I think they'd be a great resource to publish my new deck once it's done

A sweet woman who is managing the "Support Spike" website on facebook (…) and who commissioned my latest James Marsters commission actually took a print-out of the damn thing to the latest con James attended and had him sign it for me! Such a really cool thing to do. I can't wait to get it in the mail. Apparently he really liked it!

The Devil You Know by Ellygator

Two years ago at the beginning of October I also lost my Dad, which is the mixed bag part of this month, but I've decided to not mope but share one of his deceptively simple but absolutely delicious kick-ass recipes. If I want to remember him bustling about our kitchen, teasing Mum and making the whole place smell just so yummy I cook up a batch of these and feel instantly 100% better!

Just like most self-respecting Germans have their own unique potato salad and chocolate cake recipes, they also have a potato pancake recipe. Here's ours:

Dad's Potato Pancakes

Serves 4

12 medium mealy potatoes shredded raw, pressed and the water discarded
2 eggs
1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 medium onions
pepper and salt to taste
Coconut oil (my Dad used olive, but we now know it's not so good for frying) for frying

Blend all the ingredients (except the shredded potatoes) in a food processor until smooth, pour in a bowl, add 2 tbsp of oil and the potato shreds and stir with a spoon to blend well.

Heat the coconut oil to just below smoking and fry the mixture in small portions (about a large heaped tbsp of the mixture for one pancake) in the oil, flip after about a minute and brown well on both sides.

In Westphalia, where I'm from, they usually serve this with either a helping of apple sauce or with sugar beet molasses spooned on top, but I kind of like them just on their own...
