Today’s album is Frank Zappa’s twentieth solo album, “London Symphony Orchestra, Volumes I and II,” came out in 1983 which seems to have been a watershed year as far as Mr. Zappa’s creativity had been going!  Frank was a unique individual, he constructed music on a wide variety of fronts and his interests ranged in everything from foul-mouthed triple-X humor to classical music in curious styles.  This is a two record set and one that is definitely worth buying whether or not you are a fan of the eclectic, deceased genius—take the handy link posted above, go there now, and BUY it—every dime spent at Amazon helps keep our blog up-and-running so please! Help us out!

826TH BLOGPOST AT THE AICP-END!

 

Bakersfield, CA, 02-24-2013 Su: Finally, the week is over, done, kaput, pau hana, I have done my time and I am leaving tonight to go home to Taft, California.  You know, Taft is one of those cities that at one time gave Bakersfield and Kern County a bad name due to the fact that nothing but racists lived there, persecuting blacks and Hispanics as though they lived in the midst of 1960s’ Mississippi.   Their sister town down the road—Maricopa—recently has been in the local spotlight due to the fact that Maricopa Police Department had a bad habit of pulling over drivers who looked “questionable” to them, you know, maybe they were illegals or something, eh?  What they did was to request the normal documents and if they could not produce one or more of them, they ordered them out of the car, took their keys, left them standing by the roadside, and towed their car to the impound garage.  There, costs mounted massively almost overnight and if the poor unfortunate illegal was unable to come up with the necessary paperwork, cash, and whatever else the cops ordered of him or her, they sold the cars, boom, bam, over and done!   

The wife of one of the blog’s authors is a member of the Kern County Human Relations Commission and once had to go out there to investigate these horrendous charges, smacking of the old days of Jim Crow, the KKK, and other nefarious wrongdoings that marred the image of our illustrious nation.  She is a black woman so just taking the long lonely drive out west south of Taft on the road to the coast was dangerous enough but then after listening to the complaints of myriad citizenry at the hearing, she was fearful of having the same situation befall her on the way home later that night.  Of course, she had the necessary paperwork and all but the thought of being stopped by some crackerjack cops late at night and left to fend for her was more than she could bear so when she left town, she drove 10 miles lower than the speed limit. 

Eventually, the county commissioners managed to straighten out the situation and the police chief on down were terminated and I believe the Kern County Sheriff’s Department took over policing the town as the racist cops were sent packing.  One can only wonder who may have disappeared out there amid the oilfields, the desert scrub, and the lonely areas along the boring, never-ending miles of blacktop—did any of these disgusting thugs murder someone and no one knows about it?  It is frightening to think how quickly we can return to the days when the whites went in one direction and the “coloreds” in another and it hurts a normal individual to think that the town in which they live was once a racist cornerstone of persecution.   Times have changed but it takes all of us working together to make sure they never again return to what once they were because that is not something by which anyone should have to live their lives much less raise kids. 
The other glaring issue we have in Kern County lies on the other side of the valley up in Tehachapi.  Long a beautiful area in which to spend some lovely alpine time, it lately seems to have become a hotbed of illegal man-on-boy sexual contact and it does not stop at the low-income folks.  No, it affects the people charged with looking after the area’s children, one man was a firefighter and a city council member, another is an anti-bullying advocate who it turns out has a proclivity for young teenaged males, boys he finds on a Website called Jaxed, some sort of Gay crap one finds infecting the Internet.  This is the problem with all of the nonstop homosexual laws and Gay marriage is that they cannot reproduce, all they can do is to RECRUIT and that is why it is so important for them to begin teaching the children of American about “famous fruits” in grade school.   I did not realize that a person’s sexual preference was worthy of comment or note but seemingly, it is more important than just what the individual did.  I am telling you, my kids are thankful I put them through a private church school just as I intend on helping the grandkids because I will be damned that some rump-ranger is going to turn my kids into a sword-swallowing bugger bandit.  At some point, something is going to happen and the blowback is going to be fierce, I hope that these people are prepared because whatever is going to happen to them is more than deserved.  I like the old days when all it was, was “leave me alone”—that was right, what a person does in the sanctity of their bedroom is their business as long as it’s legal!  NO children!

Today, we conclude our week-long seminar on cornbread, original muffins, classic quickbread recipes and it’s a good one, it is a formula for cornbread designed for use in making cornbread stuffing, something all of us definitely need to know how to do because there is and are many differences in the chemistry of making and perfecting these things.  Once you try this and see the outcome, I believe you are going to concur and that my friends, is definitely priceless!  This is it:

(#0055) “DRESSING” CORNBREAD—INSTITUTIONAL SIZE

 

Confusing as it seems, chefs have different recipes for the same things albeit when they are used for different purposes such as when we serve cornbread as a side and for when we use it to stuff a turkey or another type of fowl.  This one is somewhat drier than the kind devoted to eating and is the perfect foundation for use in creating one’s holiday turkey so you definitely are going to use this recipe at certain times of the year.
Yield:  one full-size sheet pan / Mis-en-place: 1-1.5 hours:
 

 

Qty.
Measure
Item
Other
1.5
Quarts
All-purpose flour
 
1.5
Quarts
Argo yellow cornmeal
 
.5
Cup
Baking powder
 
.5
Cup
Nonfat dry milk
 
.5
Cup
Bob’s Red Mill soy flour
 
.125
Cup
Baking soda
 
.125
Cup
Salt
 
14
Large
AA eggs
 
1
Cup
Granulated sugar
 
3
Cups
Vegetable oil
 
1
Quart
Sour milk
 
.125
Cup
Vanilla extract
 

 

Method:

1.      Mis-en-place: have everything ready with which to work! Prepare a large, full-sized sheet pan by spraying it heavily with PAM Baking Spray, Crisco Pan Release Spray, or some such other heavy-duty food release spray, then line it with sheets of wax paper, followed by another heavy round of food release spray—ESPECIALLY IN THE CORNERS! Then, using a flour sifter, sift all-purpose flour around the sprayed sheet, and then set it aside until required.  Meanwhile, place a pot of hot water on the stovetop and bring to a boil.
2.      Double-sift the first SEVEN ingredients together and then set them aside until required at a later step in the recipe.  Hook up the Hobart mixer, equip it with the PADDLE attachment, and begin beating the eggs, sugar, and oil at medium-high speed until you CREAM it; this means, that it fluffs up, is light, and almost doubled in size.  This is an important step—never overlook or omit it—as it lightens and softens the bread. 
3.      Add the remaining ingredients, blending well, then fold the DRY into the WET using the least amount of low-speed mixer-rotations necessary to moisten the former with the latter.  Scrape the sides of the bowl and the paddle and rotate the paddle around the bowl again for another 30-40 seconds. Scrape the bowl, paddle again, and rest the batter for 30 minutes, covered with plastic wrap.
4.      Preheat your standard oven to 375°F or a convection oven—fan “off”—to 325°F. Approximately 10 minutes prior to placing the batter into the oven, pour boiling water into a hotel pan placed on the bottom floor of the oven.  Steam the oven for about 10-15 minutes—this is essential to the wellbeing and finished texture of the bread so do it. 
5.      When the batter is ready to bake, stir it with a spatula and then scrape the sides of the bowl down.  Then, pour it into the prepared sheet pan, gently shake it, settling the contents, and then place it on the middle oven rack, retaining the water left inside the pan for the first 5-10 minutes.  If using the convection oven, flip the fan “on” now.
6.      After 10 minutes, pull out any residual water remaining in the pan and discard it.  Bake the bread at this temperature for a full 20 minutes, then reduce it by 25°F and continue baking for another 5-10 minutes or until a paring knife inserted into the center of the bread determines that it is “done.” To prove it, the paring knife is going to withdraw “clean.”
7.      As soon as the bread pronounces it is done, pull it out, place atop a cooling rack, and cool for about 25-30 minutes.  Then, place an inverted sheet pan atop it with a sheet of wax paper separating the bread from the outside top of the second pan, quickly—and deftly—flip the pan upside-down dropping the baked bread out atop it. 
8.      What you have now is the underside of the bread facing you—the new TOP of the bread and note: it is a beautiful, homogenous smooth loaf, just like a baked cake, ready to divide and to serve.  Using a sharp bread knife, cut the bread into squares of equal size and keep warm in bread warmer or in an alterscham oven on low temperature.  Serve it to order accompanied by freshly whipped honey butter and red raspberry preserves. 
9.      Wrap leftover portions of cornbread either communally in hotel pans or individually in plastic wrap, then zipped up tight in Ziploc bags and then label, date, and frozen for later use.  Use cornbread within 3-5 days unless, of course, you intend it for cornbread dressing for use with poultry, seafood, or pork.  If saved for that, use it within 2-3 weeks but if for “eating,” use them within the aforementioned prior amount of time.
Unbelievably, there is a difference in cornbread that chefs’ use for DRESSING and for EATING and this one is the first version, somewhat drier than the kind one would want to enjoy with a slab of butter and fruit preserves.  Keep the recipe handy as you are going to use it many times, it is that important and that good!

BABY SNAKES
            I am sorry if I offended any of our Gay readerships, I am just saying, “why not leave the kids alone, and let them decide for themselves which path they wish to follow?”  This is what upsets the majority of the straight individuals in the world, the forcing of all of these laws down the throats of the Straight community is not only disgusting, and it is horrifying!  Let our kids choose for themselves which path they want to follow and then let them do it but I am telling you, you cannot stop me if I choose to put my grandchildren through Gay Conversion Therapy because I don’t want them growing up to be sodomites.  I want them to be normal, not some alleyway skulking bottom searching for a top or several tops for that matter.  The time is coming when we have to fight back and put an end to this rampant conversion of straights into queers because that is precisely what they are attempting to do right now and are doing a good job of it, I must say.  Folks, the time has come to save the United States from the danger under which, it is being crushed and I urge all of you to begin speaking up just as they did in the movie, “Network”—“I am mad as hell and am not going to take it anymore!” Yell out of your townhouse windows, say what you feel, it is still a free country and we must treat it like one until they silence us! Enough is enough, fight back, and stand up for your rights, save your children!
