YOU GOT THE GUMMI RUNS

Slap-dash, because I need to remember this recipe that I made up as I went along.
Savoury Breakfast ‘Scones’ (gluten free)
These are nothing like a scone, to be honest. They’re more in the area of a muffin, but this is adapted from a lemonade scone recipe that I added an egg and baking powder to, because GF flour needs all the help it can get to rise.
Ingredients:
Get, like, 2 cups of gluten-free self raising flour
1/2 cup of tonic water
Maybe 1/4 cut of thickened cream? It’s meant to be 1/2 cup but I ran out.
A dash of milk. Between 2 tbs and ‘oh shit not that much’
(maybe more flour but not just yet)
An egg
a teaspoon of baking powder (make sure it’s gluten free, too)
And like… I think this was about 100 g of long bacon in the end. Get like 150 g and trim the thick edge of fat off, but not ALL of the fat. You’ll need some to make it taste great.
A bunch of cherry tomatoes? I think I used eight? If they’re big, quarter them. If they’re small, halve them.
Some zuccini would go great in this but I didn’t have any.
A HUGE handful of grated cheese.
Instructions:
Put bacon and tomatoes and any other veg in a pan (maybe with some butter) and cook up.
Flour, tonic water, cream, egg, baking powder into a bowl. SR flour is a pain to mix, so skip the wooden spoon and just stick your hand in there and scoosh it all together.
Put in the cooked bits from the pan. Try to get grease in there, too.
Mix around. Realise mix is probably too dry. Add some milk. Maybe frett that it’s still too dry and won’t rise? Add more tonic water.
Mix is hella gloopy right now. Panic because this is nothing like scone dough. Add the HUGE handful of cheese. (Usually this is where I add more flour to get the right consistency, but I didn’t this time and it worked out okay.)
Mix it up with your hand. Use clean hand to get a small cupcake pan to your side. Jam muffin papers into the holes. The weight of the mix will hold them down.
Spoon mix into papers. I put, like, a lumped soup spoon into each one, and then divvied up what was left between them.
Bake at a 175C for 5 min. Realise the original recipe you’ve massively deviated from asked for 200C. Crank the oven up the rest of the way and bake for another 15 min.
Do a skewar test. Bake for another 10 min because the tops aren’t golden yet.
Eat a scone!
Panic that they’re not cooked because they’re all squishy in the middle! D:
Realise that’s just a ball of melted cheese :D

appropriate white culture. dance offbeat at the club. scream at your barista when she doesn’t put enough splenda in your latte. clap at the movie theater when the credits roll. put your child on a leash.

prefer to be called caucasian even if you’re not from the caucus region. only empathize with animals and yourself. write prolific dissertations on hunger games characters being oppressed then ignore oppression in real life.

whispering sam vimes once arrested a motherfucking dragon

you are capable of literally anything

Sam Vimes once arrested two opposing armies to end a war.

x

Sam Vimes fought an ancient mind-controlling spirit and won. Sam Vimes killed a werewolf with his bare hands. Sam Vimes happily wears the awful lumpy itchy socks his wife knits him. Sam Vimes causes traffic jams in order to be home in time to read his baby a bedtime story. Sam Vimes fought at the barricades— twice. Sam Vimes waited until his interviewee had left and then put his coat over his head so no one could hear him laughing hysterically at her silly name. Sam Vimes is my hero.

Sam Vimes overcame a crippling alcohol dependency. Sam Vimes examines and confronts his internal prejudices. Sam Vimes lived in poverty because he was giving his salary to the widows and orphans of fellow officers. Sam Vimes cleaned up a corrupt police force and made it inclusive of the different ethnicities in his city.

Sam Vimes is my hero too.

He turned to leave, then seemed to have a thought. “Sergeant Dorfl!” he said, turning back. “D’you think you’ll believe in gods now?”

Every eye in the Watch House turned to the golem sergeant. “Not Gods, Yet.” said Sergeant Dorfl. “But Always Sam Vimes.”

do it for the vimes

i have googled ‘evil science grants’ and the results were not satisfying
