lily: I think all the male RASSMers have been claimed already; I just got here a little too late. ;) Kidding. I love all the guys. I have yet to find one that truly irritates me...
Halina: Whomever I can get ;)
Shefali: I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings by leaving them out, but the guys
I like know it (I hope)
usher Oh. gimmee a break! (I'm kidding, usher!!)
Davin: Lemme see...now who did I claim for mine? So many men, so little
time...Lord Karno, Jedi Al, Maximi, and anyone else Paula didn't get her grimy little claws into first. :) And what the heck...ya might as well throw Obee Juan in there too...he wasn't around when we EWOR's were
claiming our men, so I got first dibs on him.
How about YOU, usher? That is, if I can snag you out from under Paula's claws.... ;)
That is, after I've finished with Dark Lord Karno, Jedi Al, oblio-1, Obee
Juan, Dark Jedi Maximi, Gray Leader, Edward Lee, Simon Lee, roc, s1620, McMikey, Ted3000, and....hey ush, are you sure you have enough server space for me to list them all? ;)
- I only have 8MB, so I guess I'll have to limit you to your favorites. ;-Þ

PESTO CHICKEN CAESAR SALAD
This recipe is easy enough for a busy weeknight, elegant enough for company.
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (if expanding recipe, 1 chicken breast per person)
1 package dry pesto mix (if expanding, 1 package mix for every 2 chicken breasts)
Bottled Caesar Salad dressing, to taste
Grated Parmesan cheese, to taste
Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
(HINT: place pepper corns in a ziplock sandwich baggie, pound with meat
mallet or grind in coffee grinder)
Croutons, to taste
Rinse and dry chicken breasts. In a large freezer bag, empty contents of
one (1) package of dry pesto mix. Coat chicken breasts in pesto mix by
shaking in bag, one at a time. Sauté in a non-stick skillet (or use 1
Tsp. olive oil if not non-stick) until done, about 15 minutes. While
chicken is cooking, prepare salad greens on individual serving plates.
I recommend using the packages of prepared lettuce for convenience. When
chicken is done, slice into thin strips and arrange over greens. Add Caesar
Salad dressing (choose any brand, such as Kraft), Parmesan, black pepper,
and croutons to taste.
Makes two servings
Prep Time: About 30 minutes
*Add seeded, sliced Roma Tomatoes and onion to salad greens
*Use dry Ranch salad dressing mix to coat chicken
Bantha Stew (from the kitchen of Beru Lars)
1 medium to large bantha (an elephant may be substituted)
salt and pepper
spices from the mines of Kessel
2 large womp rats - optional (rabbits may be substituted)
Cut the bantha into small, bite-size pieces. This will take
about 3 months. Add enough liquid to cover. If water is at
a premium, some cheap Sullustan wine will do nicely. Salt,
pepper, spice to taste. Cook over a fire or large stove for
about 4 weeks at 475 degrees. This will serve about 3,800
hungry Imperial stormtroopers. If more people are expected,
the 2 womprats may be added, but do this only in an
emergency...most people do not like to find hare in their
stew! &nsbp&nsbp ;) ("Look, sir.....FOOD!")
BANTHA POT ROAST
This one's straight from the Imperial Stormie Barracks
on Tatooine, and will feed a squadron of 6-10 troopers,
depending on how much meat they like:
6 pounds of boneless bantha meat
(beef brisket or other cuts of pot roast will work)
1 large can of cranberry sauce
1 small package of various spices from Kessel
(1 pk. dry onion soup will work...or from scratch,
the natural ingredients that it contains)
1/2 cup ketchup
A bottle of fine Alderaanian ale
(since this is extremely hard to find, ginger ale
can be substituted)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. While the oven is preheating,
mix together in a bowl the cranberry sauce, onion soup, and
the ketchup....then set aside. When oven reaches 450, put
meat uncovered in roasting pan and sear in oven. Turn after
15 minutes, then pour the mixture in the bowl over the meat.
Then pour ale in the pot...more toward the side of the pot
and not directly over the meat. Do not cover the meat
completely with the ale....only cover the meat about 1/2 way.
(Optional: you can add 2-3 peeled whole onions at this time.)
Cover pan with roaster lid or foil, turn the oven down to
350 and cook covered for 2-1/2 hours.
When done, slice the meat on a diagonal and serve with the
gravy over it to taste. You should have a tender roast with a slightly
barbecued taste. Serve with your favorite side dishes. If you have
leftovers, the meat and gravy will freeze very well if you don't want
to eat it again right away....but it is delicious the next day!
Happy Eating, and May the Force Be With You!
Anakin/Vader Delight ( a RL mediterranean dessert - with a SW twist ;)
3 grapefruit shells or 6 orange shells
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups of sugar
1 cup of water
200g. of dark chocolate
50g. of Margarine
Cut peel into strips 1/4 inch wide from stem to blossom end.
Add salt and cover with cold water. Boil 15 minutes.
Pour off water and add fresh water. Boil 20 minutes.
Change water again and boil another 20 minutes.
Drain thoroughly and cover with 2.5 cups of sugar and water as listed.
Simmer, stirring continually to prevent scorching, until remaining syrup
has boiled away.
If you have pledged your alliance to the light side of the Force then -
Spread on waxed paper and roll each piece of candied fruit in remaining sugar.
If not - 'Give yourself to the dark side'...
Join Vader and experience the Power of Darkness -
Coat the candied fruit with dark chocolate by dipping in molten lava -
sorry - molten chocolate...[You can enrich the molten mixture by adding different kinds of chocolate etc.]
The result, much like Anakin/Vader, is bitter-sweet and dark...
< Did I mention 'my heart belongs to Daddy' ? ;>
Warning: Do not underestimate the Power of this dessert!

CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
This recipe is adapted from my mother's standard "Toll House" cookie recipe;
I've never tasted anything better!
1 1/3 cups butter, softened (DO NOT use margarine, unless you want your
cookies to taste like Bantha poodoo!)
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
3/4 cup white, granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. Vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 12-ounce package (about 2 cups) semisweet chocolate pieces
1 cup chopped nuts (such as walnuts or hazelnuts), optional
Makes 4 dozen 3-inch cookies
Preheat oven to 350°. In large mixing bowl, combine softened butter, sugars,
eggs. Stir until well mixed. Add vanilla, baking soda, and salt. Mix.
Gradually add flour, about 1 cup at a time and mix. You may need to mix by
hand towards the end. If so, rub hands with a little bit of butter to keep
dough from drying out. After all the flour is incorporated, add chocolate
chips. Mix thoroughly. Add nuts. Mix until all ingredients are combined.
With a spoon, scoop out enough dough to make a rounded ball about the size
of a walnut. Place balls about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in 350° oven for 12-15 minutes or until edges are just slightly browned.
The longer time and lower temperature makes for a wonderfully moist, chewy
cookie. Be sure to cover dough between batches to prevent it from drying
out, you may even want to place a damp paper towel over dough then cover
bowl with plastic wrap. Cool on paper towel and place in airtight container
while still just slightly warm. This will keep the cookies soft.
*Use "Mega" chocolate chips or "M&M's" type candies
*Use white chocolate
*Use Macadamia nuts
