I'd make it worth your while. Take you to an ATM. Everybody just walks away. There's about 14 grand in it. Good payday. I think so. Chigurh looked out the window, the shotgun across his knee.... It's still a a good payday. It is. It's just in the wrong currency
I like to recreate the meals from other books too, like Tolkien.
Had a contact a while, he used to get me wild rabbits. I'd recommend that rabbit stew that Sam does. The wild ones seemed much bigger with a lot more meat on them than farmed ones. Once they're filleted and prepared you can basically just drop them in the stew, the meat just falls off the bone when done. A little bit like chicken they taste, but with a slight tangy flavour.
I always wanted to try that out, starting with simple things, like making butter beer from Harry Potter. Recipes in books always intrigue me.
You ever see that 18th century cooking channel Jas Townsend and Son? Seems like something that may interest you
Makes me wanna try it just to live out that moment from LOTR lol. Plus, one needs a pint to go with it
Another hobby of mine is alcohol tasting. Just any alcohol meant for consumption, and if I got money to kill and the bottle is interesting, I will buy some and give it a go. i started with beers, feeling a little bored of my usual budweiser, I tried out some newcastle, guiness, and samual adams on christmas. I also tried out a bottle of sake. Then I started going ham on vodkas, going from Smirnoff to Polar Ice, Skyy, Absolute, Finlandia, Svedka, Alberta Pure and eventually finding my favourite, Russian standard.
I could go on and on about alcohol I tried. From costly, to budget friendly, I like it all.
I also love researching Religion and Occult. Particularly from the sandy regions. It is just interesting stuff
My favourite mead came from Moniack Castle, at the top of Inverness. I always used to bring back a few bottles (or crate, if I was in a car) when I was up that far into Scotland. They sold out to Lyme Bay some time ago though. Their Mead is OK too. Some of the commercial stuff is not so good though, I agree.
I would love to have a go at making the fabled Picts' heather mead/ale. The heather up there has a psychotropic fungus growing on it that probably made its way into the brew, and the honey itself is a very different consistency and composition. The whole comb likely went into the brew as well.

I do costume design and fabrication as a hobby, and I still play with Legos. I would call art a hobby but thats where im going into as a career so its a bit more than a hobby to me. I'm also very outdoorsy and I work at a camp during the summer.

One of my hobbies besides swords, books (with swords) or movies (with ... ah, you know) is being here in this forum (with swords of course). I have no other opportunity to talk in english most of the time and it's a good feeling to have buddies all over the world with the same interests (swords and alcoholic fermentation).
@kylan, you might be interested in this. Or anyone else of course.
"The Accomplisht Cook, Robert May 1685" - No copyright to worry about, and released by Project Gutenberg.
Files are attached to the post, for epub and pdf versions. The pdf version is a quick conversion I did myself as I don't use epub. The pagination is off. If I get time one week I might fix it manually, but it's good enough for now.
This is a small sample of the contents pages:
1 A souc’t pig . 2 A young lamb or kid roast . 3 Two Shovelers. 4 Two Herns, one larded. 5 A Potatoe-Pye. 6 A duck and mallard, one larded. 7 A souc’t Turbut . 8 A couple of pheasants, one larded. 9 Marinated Carp, or Pike, or Bream . 10 Three brace of partridg , three larded. 1 1 Made Dish of Spinage cream baked. 12 A roll of beef . 13 Two teels roasted, one larded. 14 A cold goose pie. 15 A souc’t mullet and bace. 16 A quince pye. 17 Four curlews, 2 larded. 18 A dried neats tongue. 19 A dish of anchoves. 20 A jole of Sturgeon . Jellies and Tarts Royal
Oh, right, alcohol. I think I forgot to mention that.
I'm a beer guy, preferring stouts and porters, but I can appreciate most non-pale ales and some lagers. Especially the rate black lager, like the Brazilian Xingu or that one from Samuel Adams... I'm also partial to ciders and lambics.
I've tried a couple of meads, courtesy of forum members, and enjoyed them. Likewise, the same fine chaps once sent me a flask of Bärenjäger and I was instantly hooked.
Which brings me to liquers, a few of which I am also fond. I explore these much less often than new beers, but I'm far more likely to pick up, say, a bottle of Chambord than any given whiskey or scotch etc. Not really my thing, though I've tried a few, but perhaps one day I'll learn to appreciate what they offer. Meanwhile, I'll stick to beer. It's cheaper and the variety these past few years is tough to beat.
I'm not much on cooking, though I do enjoy eating...
"A large collection of expensive and quality fedora hats."
I wanted a fedora since I was a kid (I'm fifty six now) because of how cool they looked in the movies on TV of a Sunday afternoon. I grew up to have a 7 7/8 hat size which is hard to find. I just a few years ago discovered a company that makes hats my size as part of their standard line and got my fedora. I, too, am looking at collecting some hats.
I also write fiction as a hobby and since I'm disabled and have the time I'm trying to get better with the Linux BASH shell, the command line.

I love watching movies, drawing, singing, and playing the ukulele. Also, reading blogs is one of my main hobbies. I like to follow different show business and celebrities' life news, movie and music facts and etc. I've recently found out about this blog womanlylive.com/, it's a great source of such information.

christain: Happy belated New Years everyone. This year will find me making some cool new purchases, including a Medieval-style crossbow. Maybe a dagger or two, some sick armor pieces, and a new sword.

seth: An albion svante? If only my government stimulus check had been $2000 instead of $600, I could have used mine and my wife's to buy it.
