INGREDIENTS

17 oz dark chocolate, chopped

3 cups softened unsalted butter, divided

8 cups heavy cream

Lightly sweetened whipped cream, for garnish.

1 oz sack mead (sweet dessert mead)

dessert- small9458

METHOD

Chop the chocolate into small manageable pieces. Melt the chocolate over a pan of simmering water, and be careful not to let any of the moisture get into the chocolate.

Stir in the mead.

While still on the heat, add the unsalted butter to the bowl. Stir the chocolate until smooth and then take the bowl off the heat and let it cool to room temperature.

dessert- small9461

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a chilled bowl, beat the heavy cream to soft peaks. Using a spatula, fold the whipped cream into the bowl of melted chocolate.

Completely line the inside of 2 8-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ loaf pans or your chosen dessert form with a light brushing of olive oil or butter and then line with plastic wrap, and leave some excess wrap hanging over the edges. The olive oil will help the wrap stick. You will use the excess wrap to cover the top of the terrine while chilling, and to help ease it out of the pan. Smooth as many of the wrinkles as possible.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 4 hours.

About one hour before serving, remove the terrine from the fridge. Leave it wrapped until the mixture is at room temperature. Unwrap and cut into 1/3-inch thick slices. Plate each slice and top as you like. A dollop of dulce de leche perhaps, or a raspberry sauce. If desired, top with a dollop of whipped cream and a mint sprig.

 

Serve!

 

 

Changes

June 9th, 2012

There have been so many changes in my life since my last post I don’t even know where to begin.

The most significant is that Kim and I are separated. I’m not going to provide any further detail than that, it’s between she and I.

I’m still working, slowly, on rebuilding my 91 4Runner for stormchasing. It’s certainly a project that has taken on a life of it’s own and taken a lot more of my time than I ever anticipated.

I’m not out with my camera nearly as often as I’d like to be. That said, when I am out I’m a lot more disciplined on when I pull the trigger than I’ve ever been. Either shot is right and I take it, or it isn’t and I don’t. There are still misses, but I’m damned happy with the good/bad ratio. I just want to get out shooting more often!

I’m in the final weeks of my contract, and am about to start a new full time job. To say I’m stoked about the new opportunity would be a massive understatement. It’s a great company with highly talented people who move fast.

I’ve also got my usual pile of hobbies and projects on the go. I’m still stretching myself on the culinary front, starting to learn some basic leatherwork so I can restore a massive steamer trunk…

So much more happening, but that’s what’s fit for public consumption!

Occupy Calgary

November 20th, 2011

Occupy Calgary IMG_2456

There’s been a lot said about #OccupyCalgary, not much of it in support. I’m going to start by giving Paul Hughes his due though. There were 2 different Occupy Calgary camps, one on St Patrick’s Island and the one in Olympic Plaza. A certain amount of noise was made within Occupy Calgary about there being 2 different camps, primarily along the lines of diluted effort and solidarity.

However, the group from the island that Paul Hughes was with made very simple demands, first and foremost being assistance for the homeless. Their demands were straightforward, easy to understand, and most importantly in this instance, something that the City of Calgary could address and the average citizen could support. The City of Calgary stepped up. Full point to Paul Hughes, and the City.

The second Occupy Calgary group in Olympic Plaza has become virtually impossible for me to defend at this point. Their behaviour is inconsistent with activism or protest. They started off well enough, all things considered. There are plenty of issues these days the average citizen and Calgarian could get behind.

  • Like rents so high, the chance to save for a home is almost eliminated.
  • The inequality of companies damaging your credit for late payment, when the same privilege isn’t extended to those who get paid late by an employer.
  • The fact that the most affordable ‘food’ is also the least nutritious.
  • There’s more of course, but I think these 3 should be enough to kick off a list as long as my arm from you gentle readers ;)

    Occupy Calgary had a simple model for direct and participatory democracy.

    Occupy Calgary sign - consensus procedure IMG_2451

    I attended a few of the General Assemblies, and was struck by how orderly they were. It was even more striking in the level of polite discourse. It would have been an education for anyone to attend one of the General Assemblies and then contrast that with the behaviour of our elected politicians. There were a few occasions when there was someone present signing the discussion! That’s some heavy duty inclusion for a group this small.

    Approaching consensus IMG_2464

    I recognized from day 1 that the Occupy movement in Canada would have to distinguish itself from the Occupy Wall Street movement in the US. Americans have a great deal to be angry about. The financial abuses by corporations, the massive taxpayer funded bail outs, and near out of control unemployment. The fact a man could be sent to prison for 10 years for stealing food, and a CEO responsible for massive fraud be given a slap on the wrist.

    We haven’t had that in Canada. Certainly we’ve been stung by the financial crises around the world, but for the most part we’re weathering it well. Canadians just aren’t angry. Frustrated perhaps, but not angry. Not enraged. You can’t start a revolution of any kind based on frustration. The depth of feeling just isn’t there. Canadians aren’t hurting enough to protest yet. We are willing, at this point, to endure a few more abuses by our government and companies.

    Also from day 1, the Occupy Calgary protesters ran into a fundamental problem. While they were able to generate some small and quick support, they weren’t able to leverage that into anything more. They failed to recognize and address the issue of ‘getting the message out’. They are protesting in a world of media sound bites, and all they were managing to get into the newspapers and tv was near meaningless chaff. Each protester had their own reasons for participating, which is fine and to be expected. But as a group, they failed to identify some clear and unifying issues to rally around. And in absence of unifying issues, they failed to unify both themselves and Calgarians. They remained a small group of discontented with no meaningful message and no proposed plan of action on how to address the problems they were protesting.

    There’s a collection of signs laid out on the edge of the sidewalk at Olympic Plaza, and more than a few Calgarians took the time to stop and read them.

    IMG_2472.jpg

    Unfortunately, even this messaging was pretty ineffective. It was more like everyone brought down their pet peeve protest item and laid it out on the ground. Pretty high in rhetoric, and barely a supporting fact in evidence. The group, even within their own ‘media’ on the sidewalk was disorganized with no unifying message. They had an opportunity to win over people who had actually come down to see what the fuss was about, and all they provided were slogans empty of meaning and context laid out on the ground. No pamphlets. Not even the presence of the person who laid the sign down to explain what they were talking about.

    Initially the Occupy Calgary demonstrators had at least the grudging patience of Calgarians. City Hall was giving them surprising leeway, especially when contrasted by Toronto. Even more in contrast to the treatment of protesters in the US who have been experiencing out of control police brutality, learning something the black community has known all to well down there. We have our own problems in Canada as evidenced by law enforcement during the G20 – but the number of violent thugs working as police officers in the US is an epidemic of state sanctioned violence.

    The City of Calgary however showed patience. While more than a few high profile bloggers and media editorialists have taken Mayor Nenshi to task for the City of Calgary’s handling of Occupy Calgary, I would have to disagree with them. Mayor Nenshi and council have taken exactly the right approach, and are essentially letting the demonstrators hang themselves. The protesters inability to unify behind a common message after this long has resulted in a groundswell of irritation against them. The few demands they’ve made are petty, and disappointingly ridiculous and self-entitled.

    The latest quote in the Calgary Herald

    Anthony Hall, a University of Lethbridge professor who recently joined the movement, said they have the right to use electrical devices, such as laptops.

    The right to use electrical devices like laptops? Seriously? I’d be the first to admit I’d be lost without my iPad/smartphone/laptop, but I have never considered them a right. I think it’s safe to assume even in this day and age that there are more people without a laptop than with.

    Just 5 days ago, the City of Calgary upped the ante under growing pressure from citizens to do something about Occupy Calgary.

    IMG_6755.jpg

    A swarm of bylaw enforcement officers and supporting police officers issued 24 hour warnings to remove tents or risk having them impounded.

    IMG_6761.jpg

    In gratifyingly Canadian tradition, that’s as far as it went. No police batons, no pepper spray or rubber bullets.

    At the end of the day, this was the Occupy Calgary message:

    IMG_6800.jpg

    With public sentiment against them, nary a kind or supporting word in the media, and a city council losing patience… what has Occupy Calgary done with the last 5 days? Not much. No unifying message for Calgarians to support, still, after more than 4 weeks and daily meetings. Their few demands are for the City to provide them with infrastructure so they can stay there, like electricity.

    The Occupy Calgary message is so unclear in fact, that you still see blog posts like this one.

    Perhaps they should relocate to a poor African country to learn what being a have not really is. Or maybe Iran to see what government corruption is really all about.

    I’d be the first to admit Canada is one of the best places in the world right now, particularly with the global economic crisis going on. But to suggest that someone move to another country to see how bad it could be is about as ridiculous as the few demands the protesters have made. Cries of ‘oh, it’s so much worse elsewhere’ are meaningless and at best forgive the abuses in our own systems. Sure it’s worse elsewhere, but statements like the one above suggest we shouldn’t do anything to move ourselves forward. We should just rest on our laurels and say this is as good as it gets, don’t bother trying to improve what we have. Don’t worry about the homeless freezing to death in our streets each winter, it’s worse elsewhere. Don’t bother yourselves over children abandoned to social services. Long wait times at hospitals? Quit your complaining, you could be starving in an African desert.

    Sadly, I can barely work up the energy to even defend Occupy Calgary conceptually these days. As a group, they just don’t have it together to make it work. It’s devolved from an Occupy Wall Street splinter to a self entitled group of people who want to camp out in Olympic Plaza. Preferably with power and running water and other niceties the average Calgarian would spurn on a camping trip.

    Just streetin’ it

    September 23rd, 2011

    Aside from the giddy excitement of being back to work full time doing something I love, the chance to shoot downtown has been amazing. I forgot how much I missed the energy and liveliness of downtown Calgary, so it’s been phenomenal to get out more. Each day after work is a new chance to get shots of people.

    And I know exactly who is going to love this first shot…

    And yes, now and then I will still break down and take a shot of a sunrise. I cut back on it because, honestly, there are probably a few million shots of sunrises out there.

    But this one is mine.

    Repeating steps

    August 28th, 2011

    I picked up the replacement igniter and ignition coil yesterday, and it turned out to not be compatible with my truck. One of the guys from CT4WD has generously offered to loan me his, so I’ll be organizing that for as soon as possible. With work on the ignition issues put to the side, I defaulted to my usual ‘this needs paint’ mode; this ended abruptly when the paint can got a blockage somewhere that turned out to be utterly unclearable. So painting was out.

    On to something a little more intimidating that I’ve been procrastinating on. Finishing up the dash and getting the stereo wired. There are a startling number of wires in the back of a non-stock stereo. To add to the fun, I had also liberated a boxed set of beefy speakers that someone had taken out of their vehicle for an upgrade – turns out they work :D

    As does the stereo. First try! There are a few bits that aren’t wired up right now since I don’t have anything to run them too, but I’ll be extending the harness off the back of the stereo so it will reach somewhere easier to access in the future.

    Today is a bit up in the air, so we’ll see where it goes! At a minimum I hope to remove the last of the sheared bolts, put some finishing touches on the dash so I can call it done etc. If things come together with the guy from CT4WD, that’ll definitely be a priority. If not, I have plenty of work to do getting the doors put back together. I have to get all the ‘new’ power controls etc in them so I can have automagic in the truck instead of crank windows :)

    One step forward, a different step back

    August 24th, 2011

    I haven’t posted an update on my truck since last October. Not to my blog anyhow, mostly small updates via Facebook and G+. A great deal of my updating etc has been on the CT4WD site under the Member Build thread as the 91 4Runner 22RE storm chasing build.

    It’s been a LOT of work, a lot of learning, and I may or may not have invented entirely new swear words in the process. The truck has been torn down to it’s block, and built back up. The interior stripped completely bare – plastic molding, carpet, dash, instrument panel, seats… everything.

    Now a days you could almost mistake it for a truck again! It’s been mostly repainted (still one side + the roof to finish), the plastic molding has been cleaned and repainted, the dash cleaned and painted, the instrument panel cleaned and prepped with additional wiring for future gauges.

    It’s got a rebuilt cylinder head, new ARB front shocks, all new brakes, new and upgraded master cylinder from an FJ80 to boost braking power. New timing chain, timing chain cover, water pump, and oil pump. The throttle body and intake have been stripped down and cleaned thoroughly. Vacuum tubes replaced with all new heat resistant silicone hoses. Wiring harnesses stripped of their old coverings and tape and redone. New spark plugs. Injectors cleaned up with new o-rings and grommets… and that’s where I ran into what seemed an insurmountable problem. I went through installing the injectors 4 times, and I always ended up with one leaking. To work on the injectors, you have to take the entire intake off, remove the fuel rail and injectors.. and then put it all back together. Not a quick process.

    It was frustrating enough that I came up with a fairly good urban mechanic trick to help me troubleshoot.

    Troubleshooting with a GoPro IMG_0763

    I hooked up my GoPro HD, connected the HDTV out to an lcd tv, and then positioned the GoPro as needed.

    Which let me see this…

    And that’s where I’ll pick things up as current.

    I’m going be reminding myself frequently that progress is progress. With the help of a super amazing neighbour, the fuel injectors were quickly sorted out. It was one of those things that required someone who had seated fuel injectors before, and knew what to look for. In this case what to look for was a complete newb failing to put insulators in the injection ports.

    I think I probably set a personal record today for getting the intake and fuel rail etc off and reinstalled. 40 minutes. Gave the fuel pump a couple kicks, no leaks! Win!

    Turn the key in the ignition… no start. Fail!

    Once again I broke out the GoPro and moved the screen to a new position so I could see it from inside the truck. Pulled one of the distributor wires, removed the spark plug, seated the spark plug back into the wire and then clamped it to hold it still and isolate it from the engine. Ran a 14 awg wire from engine ground to the spark plug, stripped off about 1.5 inches and positioned the bare wire about a 1/2″ from the tip of the plug.

    No spark.

    Checked the connectors of all 4 spark plugs, they seem solid, as does the connector from the ignition coil to the distributor.

    Started checking resistance… and promptly discover the other 3 spark plug connectors do NOT want to come out. At all. After wiggling one of them loose finally, I discover that the connector end that attaches to the spark plug is still attached to the damned spark plug. Had to gently work it loose with a pair of channel locks. So my new problem is to replace those wires. I’m just hoping I can find someone who has some kicking around they aren’t attached to!

    Storm chasing near Olds, Alberta

    July 9th, 2011

    Before I get this kicked off, this is the area I was chasing in.

    I initially started the afternoon further east than I should have. I’d seen the system near Olds, but had anticipated that the supercell would actually *move* and wanted to be sure I got out in front of it rather than spend all my time trying to catch up. Whoops! That thing just parked itself about 10km west of Olds and powered up.

    This was my first good clear view of the supercell.

    From that point on, the day was pure win. Saw funnel clouds and a tornado, beautiful and awe inspiring supercell structures…

    French Toast

    July 1st, 2011

    We’re going to pretend it hasn’t been months since I updated, mmkay?

    Despite having gotten up at 6am, I’m just having breakfast now. French toast!

    Serves 8

    3 eggs
    3/4 cup milk
    1/4 cup creme fraiche
    2tbsp butter
    1/4 tsp salt
    2tbsp honey (warmed til runny)
    cinnamon

    If you don’t plan to make 8 slices, pour half of the mixture into a container and place it in the fridge – it’ll be fine overnight.

    Preheat oven to 375F

    Whisk together milk and creme fraiche, then add in the eggs, salt and honey.
    Soak bread 30 seconds per side, then set in rack with a pan beneath it for 1-2 minutes.

    Warm 1 tbsp butter in a frying pan, cook french toast 3 minutes per side at medium-low. Add light drizzle of maple syrup after turning, maybe some powdered sugar and fresh cinnamon.

    Place in oven for 6 minutes, but feel free to drizzle a bit more maple syrup on before throwing them in there!

    Not so sure I’d ever go out and buy one of these, but if I did you can guarantee I’d be tracking down an oversize Swedish Chef to keep it company!

    91 4Runner SR5 22RE

    October 18th, 2010

    My current list of hardware/gear/parts for rebuilding the 4Runner. If you’re interested in following the rebuild process, I’ve had some great help and suggestions from the folks over at Canada Toyota 4WD Association. If you’re into 4×4, this is an excellent bunch to talk to and be involved with.

    Crazy things I’ll do for a photo

    September 16th, 2010

    I was inspired by a blog entry from Ashenhurst Photo who I harass in a loving way on Twitter. Basically it was list of slightly crazed things they’ve done to get a picture – and I immediately knew I had a non-trivial list to reply to them with when they finished off the piece with Please feel free to share the crazy things you’ve done in order to get a shot.
