Timothy's cottage cheese loaf recipe

This is my most anticipated Thanksgiving treat.

Ingredients

  • Large box Special K
  • 32 oz cottage cheese 4% large curd
  • Biggest sweet onion you can find (chop pico de gallo style)
  • Two sticks of butter
  • 4 packets of golden George Washington seasoning and 1 brown packet
  • Two giant carrots (shave, cut shavings lengthwise and then cube)
  • 6 eggs (whisk with a teaspoon of black pepper)
  • Chop one cup of walnuts lightly and chop another cup to a coarse powder
  • Steps

    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    • Melt the butter gradually 10 seconds at a time in the microwave and add it to the largest mixing bowl you have.
    • You can use one stick only if you want to be healthier but with two you get a deep fried crispness to the crust.
    • Stir the George Washington seasoning into the butter.
    • It is basically MSG so if you aren't tolerant to it you can instead salt the eggs "military style" while you whisk them or you can use a meatloaf seasoning packet if you are really in a pinch.
    • It's best if you use at least two of the George Washington seasoning packs but five makes the Umami taste really pop.
    • Add the rest of the ingredients in the following order:
      • Walnuts
      • Carrots
      • Onions
      • Cottage cheese
      • Special K
      • Eggs
    • Fold in the Special K and then stir about 20 to 30 seconds until it is equally mixed.
    • Spoon into a 9 x 11 over safe casserole dish and smoosh it flat with back of the spoon then turn down the edges so it looks like a baked cake.
    • Bake in a 350-degree preheated oven for an hour.
    • Remove it from the oven and let it sit for 6 minutes 21 seconds.
    • Devour.

Variations

  1. Adding a 1/2 cup of canned water chestnuts and about a cup of diced celery gives a nice texture.
  2. Add a quarter cup of ketchup and one tablespoon of yellow mustard to the mix for a little 4th of July in your winter.
  3. Mix 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup ketchup and three tablespoons of soy sauce and spread over the top. If you do this, raise the temperature of the oven to 370 degrees and cook for 50 minutes instead of an hour.
  4. Add two cups of very finely diced yellow beets.

this is the new world...

even u2 can’t make money off music now.

thom yorke is putting out stuff on bittorrent and u2 and apple are forcing albums onto user's machines.

it’s kind of depressing.

we don’t like to think of art as being market driven but in the end, the market has exerted its authority and stated that music isn't worth anything anymore.

if the market doesn't respect it, the market does not perceive it to have value.

people peddling music have become like homeless people asking you for a dollar.

“no, i don’t want your free song. leave me alone!”

i enjoy writing and recording songs as a hobby but i really feel for the folks that are trying to make a living at it.

from everyone I've talked to, it is very difficult road — and yet, you hear music everywhere so it is definitely being listened to and enjoyed.

what seems to be missing is the valuation for the artists that labor over creating the songs that become the soundtracks for our lives.

ok go

i'm not really a fan of ok go's music — but this video is really great.

"two headed dog"

nobody can do it like roky erickson but this is a pretty good tribute from the foo fighters.
