Episode 35: We’ll Take Our Payment In Goat

It’s National Mousse Day, National Meth Awareness Day, Computer Security Day and Stay Home Because You’re Well Day. We start off talking about how we learned about the birds and the bees. Tony learned from his mom and Nhat saw a Predator heat boner in school. We unsuccessfully give away some free headphones because no one wants to Skype in to our crummy show. We find out that Nhat’s brother eats some gross stuff and reveals his frog/toad phobia. Then he cuts himself somehow and starts to suck on his own blood, grossing Tony out. Nhat makes up for his last half-assed shoutout. We talk about the new Star Wars trailer.

Episode 04: (Part 2) Making Wookiee Cookies for May The 4th

We figured that we might’ve had a few bumps and scrapes with this cooking/baking episode, but it turned out even worse than expected. Tony misread the instructions and pours all of the ingredients in the bowl at once, only to have to fish the chocolate chips back out so that it can be properly mixed.

Mercifully, they actually didn’t turn out too badly. Here is the recipe… Hopefully, you’ll prep a little better than we did. I don’t see how you could do worse.

Wookiee Cookies

Yield:

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Put the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir with the wooden spoon until well mixed. Set aside.

Put the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar in another mixing bowl. Using the electric mixer set on high speed, beat together until well blended and creamy, about 3 minutes. (You can do this with a wooden spoon, but it will take longer.) Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and stir with the wooden spoon until blended. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop up a rounded tablespoonful of the dough and drop onto a baking sheet. Repeat until you have used up all the dough. Be sure to leave about 1 inch between the cookies because they spread as they bake.

Using pot holders, put the baking sheets in the oven. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Again, using pot holders, remove the baking sheets from the oven. Lift the cookies from the baking sheets with a spatula, and place on cooling racks. Let cool completely.

Episode 04 (Part 1): May The 4th Be With You (It’s All Just Sphincters, Man)

Tony and Nhat go to see Spider-Man 2 and are less than impressed. Nhat thinks everyone looks strange and might be having an acid flashback. Tony surprising scores it less than Nhat did – Nhat with a score of C+ and Tony gave it just a C.The disappointment continues to the next day, which is Free Comic Book Day, where they both show up late and manage to grab two measly comics from a picked through pile. To make things interesting, they both try to pick out comics for each other that neither would be likely to read. Each of them has to do a quick “book report” on their terrible assignments. And then they go off on a tangent of work, retail, Kevin Smith’s “Clerks,” sphincters, and whatever else comes to mind.
