After church, and after a peaceful nap, Elizabethe and I set out to make moon cakes. I had never made them before, and read about how to do it on the Internet.
Using pre-made pastry sheets (from Wegman’s), I cut little circles and Elizabethe pressed them in to the mini muffin tins. I then squeezed the bean “jam” into each one, and then we placed smaller circles on top. Elizabethe stamped each one with a rose, and in the oven they went. About 70% of the cooked, I removed them, painted the rose, glazed them with egg yolk, and popped them back in the oven for baking.
They turned out quite well. I’ll make a few adjustments the next time we make them, and I’ll take photos too.
We had some left over bean jam, and I mixed it with the hot fudge. Found a way to stretch hot fudge sauce – red bean jam. You couldn’t taste a difference.
Anyway, we served the moon cakes with a scoop of ice cream covered with the bean/fudge sauce.
With the election in two days, I have to say something. In fact, if I had time, I’d make a video and would hope it would go viral.
If you are sitting on the fence about this election, or are not quite sure, please read on…
There are three roles in the U.S. Government – Executive Branch, Legislative Branch, and the Judicial Branch. The first, executive branch, has the role of enforcing the law. They do not make the law. That’s a common misconception about the president. The president enforces the laws, while the legislature makes the laws, and the courts interpret the laws.
If you were the sheriff of a town, and you decided you did not like anti-drug laws, and if you decided you were not going to arrest people for dealing drugs you would be fired. You would be labeled as corrupt.
The sheriff in a local government is the chief law enforcement person usually. Just like the president is that for the nation. In fact, another name for our president is Commander in Chief. He is the head of the military. It is his job to make sure the laws are enforced.
So, what do we do when we have a president who refuses to enforce certain laws? In fact, what do we do when that president not only refuses to enforce such laws, but goes the extra mile to counter-enforce those laws?
Do I need to list them?
D.O.M.A., various immigration laws, voting laws, are just a few that the incumbent president has refused to enforce. And, using my analogy of a local sheriff, in my opinion, that makes him corrupt.
Regardless of what your opinion is on the laws he is refusing to support, you surely must agree that either the law be supported, or rescinded. Once we start picking and choosing what laws are worth obeying and which ones are not, we have anarchy.
Do you want another 4 years of corruption at the executive level?
So, comes Tuesday, vote wisely.
