So did your tongue turn green when the copper begins to oxidize, slightly boosting the aroma, and enhancing the taste of the vodka? That's what the hipsters tell me.

I dont think my sense of taste is good enough to know if that was the case

What's funny is most of those mugs are just copper plated aluminum. 

Hence the different colored surfaces inside the mug and outside the mug.

I suspect the "reactive" stuff regarding copper mugs is likely bullshit.

It's truly bullshit if the mug isn't solid copper.
Well.  There it is.

2015 X-mass dinner at the habitat:



Savory cheese cake salad
   Bleu cheese and herbs cake, parm, pine nut and rosemary crust
   Roasted pepper sauce with basil and garlic
   Lemon herb dresses greens
   Pickles cucumber, onion and scallion

Pork tenderloin medallions with pomegranate and dried cherry sauce

Dressing
   Corn bread and sausage with apples, apricot, pear, plum, prune and raisin.

Brussels sprout and Jersey Wakefield cabbage with bacon, currants and lemon butter.

Orange tapioca pudding with caramel praline and raspberry parfait and short bread crumbles with pistachio

Coffee with chocolate cherry irish cream


I was privileged to share the evening feasting with my good wife, my dear brother RT, and friends Ramsey, Scott and Ronald.  Many a bold yarn was spun.  A multitude of anecdotes were delivered with candor and humor.  All manner of worthy ideals were debated.  Of course at times the conversation addressed the more serious and sobering aspects of the human experience - the difficulties of living with an incredibly small penis, the challenge of telling creative d**k and f**t jokes, whether Knute Rockne’s long standing record for quantity of Old Scratch’s fiery hot semen swallowed in a single life time will be eclipsed by Lucifer Holtz, the relative probabilities of having impersonal sex in a public place with Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron, Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Lawrence… Several times, glasses were lifted round the table to celebrate the birth of magic baby Jesus, good company, college football, t**ties and beer while holiday themed music helped our hearts soar like angels.

In the end, it was a perfect evening of muff diving and mirth.

But wait!  It gets better!

Lo and behold, the miracle of x-mass was made manifest when Little Elf Ricky summoned all his skills and all his powers to clean up the kitchen mess.

My neighbor Ronald brought us a fresh venison tenderloin last fall and we made him Sunday dinner:

Pan Seared Venison cut into medallions with a savory blueberry sauce
Spicy dried fruit pilaf with cherries, apricots, pears and peaches
Colcannon
String Beans

Apple crisp with ice cream (not in pic) for desert

I'm going to make broccoli soup for dinner tonight. Here's the plan:

Peel and cube a few potatoes. Stick 'em on a roasting tray. When they're almost done, put some broccoli on the tray as well.

An onion and some garlic with olive oil in the bottom of the saucepan, sauté 'em for a bit. Add the potatoes and broccoli. Add vegetable stock, bay leaf, thyme, paprika, salt and pepper. Cook for a while.

Put it into a blender and blend. Leave a bit so it's still slightly chunky.

Does this sound like it'll work? I've never made soup before. Except once or twice from a recipe.

Should do, just depends on the blender.  Our Magi Mix shred everything instantly.
