Thing to do with left overs.

There was left over taco seasoned beef and refried beans in the fridge. But no tortillas or taco shells in the pantry. And yet I remained stubbornly hungry for burritos.

There was a can of cheap store brand biscuits in the fridge left from when my mom made chicken and dumplings.

I’m probably not the first person to do this but, here’s what I did.

So, preheat the oven to 400 (or whatever it says on the can of biscuits you’re using).

While that’s happening, stir the beef and beans together so they’re mixed evenly.

Flatten the individual biscuits out into rounds about three inches across. There were ten in the can.

Put about a tablespoon of the beef and bean mix into the middle of the flattened biscuits, fold over and press the edges together.

Place the filled busciuts on a baking sheet, I covered the baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil and sprayed the foil with a cooking spray to make clean up easier.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let them cool for about 5 minutes after you take them out of the oven.

I’d post a picture, but I ate them. I ate them all. And they were delicious.


I can too be the Doctor!

So, I got to do Tokyo in Tulsa this past weekend. It was very last minute, as I didn’t have the funds to go, but my Mom gave me the money to park and buy a pass for the day. And I had a blast! Got some new pens to ink the lines of my artwork. Got a Kakashi plushy. Saw a bunch of my friends. Was inspired for a Steampunk Lady Deadpool cosplay I’ve been planning.

Had an interesting conversation with a male cosplayer.

Me: I love your costume! What’s it from?

Male Cosplayer: You don’t know?

Me: Nope. But it looks neat.

Male Cosplayer: You aren’t even in a costume.

Me: Yes, I am.

Male Cosplayer: Who are you supposed to be?

Me: I’m the 9th Doctor, female version.

Male Cosplayer: But …

Me: ….

Male Cosplayer: But you’re wearing pants.

Me: Yes, the 9th Doctor is well known for wearing pants.

Male Cosplayer: ….

Me: I was thinking a little too hard about my old companion Ace when I regenerated, okay?

Okay, look, here’s the point.

The 9th Doctor, from Doctor Who, played by Chris Eccleston, wore a leather jacket, a dark V neck, black pants, and boots. My cosplay was *accurate* if not exact (but I really, really, want a coat like that!). I even had my sonic screwdriver and the psychic paper in my pockets.

So let’s not act like I was doing it wrong because I see no need for a female alternate version of a character to wear a skirt simply because it’s a female version. And the bust filling out the V neck shirt should have been enough of a clue that I wasn’t the original article.

And I still don’t know what show that guy’s cosplay was from. ARG!!!
