: : : There! That's much better than "No Messages Posted". The only thing that would make this morning any better is a Mohicanland coffee mug and a visit from the Puuuuummmmpkiiiiiin Fairy! I need a pumpkin...have a request for a "Carved Gnome".
: : : Dana
: : First you need to roast him at 325 degrees -- l/2 hour
: : per pound of gnome. If he's dried, you'll have to soak
: : him in water overnight before roasting. If he's fresh,
: : just put a little crabapple in his mouth and pop him
: : in the oven! (Don't forget the apple, unless you want
: : to hear a lot of annoying screeching!) When you can
: : stick a fork in him easily, remove from oven, let sit
: : for 15 minutes, then carve. I know Lainey prefers cajun-
: : style Blackened Gnome, but I prefer them plain. Call me
: : old-fashioned. Hope this helps!
: : Doc M
: Doctor Mary,
: Actually, I prefer to carve up these gnomes a bit, stuff a fat beeswax candle in its mouth & let it sit on some Dutch stoop throughout the chilly Harvest Moon nights. Then, once All Hallow's Eve has passed, I like to burn them to dust. Wood Gnome ash ...
: Ashes to ashes, dust to dust ... it's a handy base for some damn good soap.
: That's my personal favorite heirloom receipt anyway.
: PS Doctor M, of course your Charlatan Cabin will be logistically situated in very close proximity to the Trading Post! You'll be needed for an occasional shake down.
Hmmm -- The Gnome Carabine must be in a stupor this morning.
He usually senses something afoot when he's being toasted,
roasted, stuffed or carved.
PPS: It's that "Charlatan" part, while euphonious, that might
be off-putting to potential clientele. "Cabin of The
Beneficent and Healing White Light" is so much more
accurate, don't you think?
