Makes 8 Pasties
o 450g of pumpkin, skinned with no seeds
o 2 large potatoes (if you don't want to use the potatoes you can substitute it with an extra 300 g of pumpkin)
o 2 sheets of puff pastry
o 1 large brown onion
o 1 teaspoon of chopped chives
o soy sauce added to taste
o hoisin sauce added to taste
o oil for cooking
o 1 egg
**NOTE: This recipe makes more than enough pasty filling, so you can make larger pasties if you wish. It's okay to have a small amount of filling leftover.
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Step 2: Half-fill a large saucepan with water and heat on high until it is a rolling boil. While you are waiting, peel the potatoes, and chop them and the pumpkin into rough 2-3cm cubes. Put these into the saucepan, and when it has come back up to boil, cook for 15-20 minutes, until the pumpkin and potato is nice and soft (mashable).
Step 3: Finely dice the onion, and gently fry it in a small amount of
Dragon Turtle Stats 4eDragon Turtle Stats 4e3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Dragon turtles are known to be some of the longest living mortal creatures in the world. They have withstood the test of time for most of the world's history and have been worshiped in cults as spirits of longevity. These mysterious beasts remain neutral in the war between Bahamut and Tiamat and try to remain in that position as long as they can. Anyone who would wish to have a dragon turtle as an ally would have to first prove themselves worthy of its time. Adventurers have either been found in favor of these great creatures or have been crushed by its massive weight.
Even though they are relaxed and are very wise, there are still some dragon turtles that will be as cruel as any other evil dragon. However they have no interest in treasure as they do not have lairs to call their own.
Dragon Turtle Tactics
Dragon Turtles tend to spend most of the battle underwater, attacking targets from below with bite attacks. When surfaced, it will send its breath weapon at the front

SIMPLE HOLIDAY RECIPES
Traditional American holiday meals are typically some sort of roasted meat (turkey, prime rib, ham) along with a bunch of relatively simple side dishes. A lot of attention is paid to the main dish, but the side dishes can be as much of a pain. I've already put up my favorite stuffing recipe; let's put up a few others. The assumption is that some of the folks trying this out are new to cooking, so I'll include the reasoning behind a few choices, along with some basic tips and cautions that new cooks might not have learned the hard way. Yet.
One of the hardest things to do is to know when to start various side dishes so everything is ready at about the same time, while somehow doing all the cooking on four burners (only two of which can hold a large pot) and a single oven. Generally, I try to select dishes that don't all require a large burner at once, take 30 minutes or less to prepare, and/or which I can do advance work on. The

Tortilla Chips (suggests Missions.)
Cheddar Cheese (Kraft Single Cheese is easy but I'd suggest a block, Block cheese melts fast, and tastes better. :3 )
Salsa (I would suggest Pace's chunky Salsa)
Sour Cream (if you like the stuff)
Get a plate and make a nice layer of Tortilla chips. Then carefully spoon a few spoon fulls of Re-fried beans on top, make sure its spread out nicely.. be careful not to crunch your chips. Cut 3 to 4 slices of cheese or enough to cover your re-fried beans. Try to make the slices as thin as possible, the thinner the easier to melt. Stick entire plate into Microwave, for about 30seconds to a minute. But watch it, When it starts to melt. Stop the microwave when you have the cheese melted to your liking. (be careful not to burn the cheese)
Once Cheese has melted carefully pulled out the plate. (it might be hot) and pour as much Salsa as you like on top. And if you like the stuff, put a spoonful or two of Sour Cream. And There you go, a

Super soup recipeSuper soup recipe1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Okay, when I was sick with an on coming sore throat and cold I googled foods that help fight cold and flus and used everything I had in my kitchen to make a soup made from scratch. Keep in mind I used a microwave because we don't have a stove so boiling this would probably be much faster.
Anyways though, after I ate it I noticed immediently that my throat started to feel better and before I knew it I felt better. I would like to share this recipe to see if it helps other people as much as it helped me.
Things that you will need:
-raw green beans
-onion powder or minced onions(if desired)
-ground cooked turkey or turkey broth
(I used baby carrots) First off, I put carrots in a bowl of water with the amount of water the amount of soup that I wanted.
Second, I cut up some raw green beans and put them in there with the carrots.
After that I microwaved them for 3 minutes. (We have a very weak microwave you might not need to micr

Exotic Weapons from the WestMacanaExotic Weapons from the West10 months ago in Profiles More Like This
Also called "Macuahuitl" by the old empires, this was a sword-like weapon that was made of wood with embedded blades of sharpened obsidian to form its edge. This was the most common weapon of the central tribes protected by the couatl. Its main function was to be versatile in its use as either a blade or a club with the club function allowing the knocking out and capture of slaves. It is mistakenly called a type of "sword" when it is actually a baton. For those exploring the western countries, some forms of the weapon became very infamous when the tribes made ones that were as they quoted, "as tall as a man" and the obsidian blades were able to cut off the heads of horses.

Meatloaf RecipeMy friend Amy, she loved to make this with me. This is my own recipe I invented.Meatloaf Recipe1 year ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
1 1/2 to 3 lbs ground beef
1 cup milk
1 cup ground up cheddar Cheeze-Itz
2 1/2 tablespoons of Onion Powder*
McCormick’s Hamburger Spice*
*For the Onion Powder, keep in mind it’s a REPLACEMENT for chopped onion. Season to taste.
*Season to taste for Worchestire and Hamburger Spice. Also steak and stuff spice from McCormick’s works too.
Heat your oven to 350.
Put cheeze-its into a plastic bag, leaving it open. Then with a glass bowl, roll it over the crackers until they’re a fine, crushed up consistent size. I make mine really fine, almost like the powder at the bottom of cereal; but it’s up to you!
Add everything to a large bowl. Mix together by hand. I like to use plastic bags around my hands to keep from touching the raw meat itself, but you don’t have to, as long as your hands are clean! Make sure to take off your rings.

Words To Avoid"Words To Avoid In Creative Writing"Words To Avoid4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
We've all heard there are some no-no words in creative writing - these are words that you want to avoid "at all costs" some people say, but do you know which they are, and why you should avoid them? Well, I didn't the first time I saw a list of "words to avoid", and not surprisingly, a lot of people who write these lists don't know why either. (I know, SHOCK! GASP! just because someone wrote a guide doesn't mean they know what they're talking about.)
So, this morning I went on a word-finding spree to find these "word lists" and find out WHY I was supposed to avoid these words - and more importantly, HOW. This guide will explain what I discovered.
WARNING: Quite often in this guide I am going to use words I say you shouldn't. Do as I say, not as I do. I address one problem at a time so as not to confuse people, so yes, some of my examples will have several mistakes in them even if I only address one of those mistakes.
Dungeons, Dragons, and DinosaursDinosaurs in the world of Dungeons & DragonsDungeons, Dragons, and Dinosaurs8 months ago in Profiles More Like This
Since the bygone eras when the first dragons were born and ruled the skies, dinosaurs have always inspired awe, wonder, and fear among the humanoid races in the lost corners of the world. Unlike the Behemoths provided by the Monster Manuals, not all dinosaurs are omnivorous and it is often easy to tell which ones do hunt. Sages have always found them to be a mystery, often believing them to be related to dragons or drakes. Over the years, in places where encountering them is a normal thing, small communities have been able to coexist well with these creatures. Some families could keep a gallimimus as a house pet to keep the rats in check, an alchemist may rely on a velociraptor as a familiar and guardian of rare, magical components, even a warrior may find an ankylosaurus as a companion during mounted combat. The following will be a list of dinosaurs you can use in your adventures to make them a little mo

Okay, these names were unique when they were first spawned from some Goth kid's head, but X's don't make your user name look cool any more. It makes you look like some emo/goth wannabe who is just looking for attention.
User names with random numbers on the end:
When you type in a desired user name but it's already taken, the computer makes names as suggestions, like instead of JohnSmith, you're J.smith, SmithJohn, Johsmi, JohnSmith233... etc. The list can go on. Just because you want your "desired" user name, doesn't mean you need to memorize pi.
User names that are just misspelled words:
Misspelling used to be cool, now it's not. Nobody cares if you type "da" instead of "the" or use extra letters. If the best thing you can come up with for your user name is a word, the
Leprechaun's WoeA leprechaun's life can be terribly hardLeprechaun's Woe9 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
After years of gathering all of that hoard
You settle down to appreciate all that you got
Some lousy bugger sticks a great sign on top
You settle down one day in lovely sun
When suddenly the sky turns rather glum
You look up to see what's in the air
To see a bloody great rainbow is there
Now a dragon is huge and rather scary
Dwarves are known to be violent and hairy
But a leprechaun is wee as everyone knows
So guess from which one they choose to steal gold
So leprechauns unite to protect your lot
Gather together all under one pot
While one leprechaun might be easily caught,
More's not as easy as they'd first thought
