i’m by no means an expert, but i can give you an idea what they are all about.
some guy-friends get together for the weekend. these guys…
…hook all their computers up into a network (aka – local area network, LAN)
…play lots of shoot-em-up games.
…eat lots of junk food.
…drink beer and pop.
…eat the occasional fruit. usually bananas or clementines.
…don’t worry about hygiene. they DO worry about maximizing gaming time.
…most importantly – have wife-less, kid-less, fun.
at some point, some cookies that i made got sent to a party. they got rave reviews, so since then i try to send some along. this time i decided on these:
i must say, these cookies were very labor intensive (would’ve helped if i had a paddle attachment for a standup mixer, instead of a spatula). it seems as though the only way i can make good cookies is if i make difficult ones, and LOTS of them (today, i made 6.5doz!! i mean 6doz, because that’s all that’s there now…;) ). you can find the recipe here: chocolate surprise cookies! i doubled the recipe, but had lots of filling left, so i had to make another single batch of the dough. i don’t know if i just wasn’t as generous as i should be with the filling, or what the “problem” was…
along with these cookies i also made a warm dip, inspired by this recipe:
buffalo chicken dip (aka crack dip)
i don’t have hot sauce, or blue cheese dressing, or crumbled blue cheese, or monterey jack (geez, this really is “inspired by”…).
i DID have chicken (although i used chicken breast instead of canned, guess i’m a snob), cream cheese, ranch, cheddar and marble cheese…and for fun i threw in some chili flakes, bacon bits, and mild tabasco…why not right? sounds like a bit of a heart attack, but i’d eat it.
so, that’s my contribution to the LAN party weekend…cookies and crack dip! :P
have a good time, guys! :)
