Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Meringue Mushrooms

Make meringue. Put in big zippy-bag. Cut about a centimeter off one corner. Pipe stems and caps. Smooth the "curls" off the tops of the caps with wet fingers. Bake at 225F for an hour. Use sharp knife to hollow out the centers of the caps where the stems will go (otherwise the pieces will shatter--rather like predrilling a screw hole [don't go there...]) Coat flat side of cap with chocolate (dark is better; we had extra white.) Stick stem to cap using the warm chocolate. After they're all done, dust tops with cocoa powder sifted through a small strainer.
