Kick-Off 2020

As promissed, instead of closing the year with a summary, I want to look ahead into 2020 with a proper Kick-Off.

I could begin with the usual new years resolution, setting unrealistic goals like not buying any new miniatures before the others are painted and such. But I want to focus on activities that are fun, that are pro-active. And as such, I want to have a good time in 2020. The goal is not necessarily to have a better time, but to keep on having a good time with(in) my hobby. As pictures speak more than words, more of this:

Venison Ragout, Pretzel Snacks and Loaded French Toast

As promised, I had the time to do some cooking and want to share the recipes with you. We have pretzel snacks, venison ragout (or deer stew) and loaded french toast.

Often with the holidays, there is too much food and you end up with quite some left-overs and other items, that were supposed to be prepared / eaten in that time, and now go stale or perish.

Merry Christmas 2019

The year is coming to an end and today, as well as the upcoming days will be celebrated with the family. And I hope that you can take a break and enjoy a few days with your family and friends - so Merry Christmas! Frohe Weihnachen or Feliz Navidad!

Chaosbunker Christmas

To prepare myself and gather a bit of rest for the upcoming days, I got back to the Lego 42098 Car Transporter, that I got myself for my birthday. I intended to do a MOC on this one, but as I didn't found a proper alternative build and due to the fact that my bricklink order got rejected by the german customs (yes, let that sink in, the original plastic parts sent by a shop from Norway weren't EU-compliant ...), I went with the regular A-model.

Pizza Rolls, Lego Trucks and the Weekend

Long time, no cooking on here. But a chance to fix that! To take care of my colleagues in the office on my birthday, I made some pizza rolls as Finger food.

Pizza Rolls

You can make your own ingredients or buy one of the pizza kits (those where the dough and sauce is included). I pre-mix the filling, and believe me, you need less amount than you would expect. You get along with with around half or 2/3rd of the tomato sauce, get a good hand full of shredded cheese and thinly sliced pepperoni in there and mix thoroughly.

Food, movies and bases!

So I am back since the middle of the week. Been busy, taking a lot of pictures, as you can see below. Build a couple of kits, among them three Knight kits for Adeptus Titanicus.

And the July 2019 issue of White Dwarf arrived, along with a new promo card for Warhammer 40.000 Munchkin. Remember that I have some spare promo cards and book marks and you have the chance to get them, just by asking me for them at a convention or show.

A couple of interesting articles in there, for example I really did enjoy the new colour scheme they showed for the Astra Militarum / Imperial Guard, along with this beautiful Kill Team by Maxime Pastourel (also known as Mörback from Les Kouzes and I've shown his stunning Nurgle Army from Warhammer Fest here). There is a new game mode for Underworlds, have to give it a try.

New Year’s Eve Dinner 2018

Welcome to 2019 and we start the year off with some cooking! Originally I wanted to cover my brined roasted chicken that I made for Christmas, but I wasn't that satisfied with the result and may give it another try, before I share it.

As for New Year's Eve we had friends over, who have a toddler themselves. So the food for the evening was something among the idea of tapas, or dishes that could be eaten all over the evening, without getting mushy or overdone and so on. The night before New Year's Eve, I began with the Guacamole.

Korean BBQ Style Pulled Pork

From time to time, I do a bit of cooking, as you might have seen here and as I mentioned in my article on my parental leave. I posted the result of this on my Instagram and was asked to share the recipe, and I'll do so in the following lines.

I made pulled pork in a Korean BBQ inspired way, along with a asian salad.

Korean BBQ Style Pulled Pork

First of all it is important to have access to the proper meat to begin with. We have a local butcher, Westerwald Fleischerei, who locally sources his meat, butchers and distributes it himself. I got an assortment of different ribs and sausages, along with a portion of pork butt (which is not actually part of the pigs behind, but from the neck or shoulder area).

Christmas Dinner Beef Wellington

How do introduce this article? Some of the regulars may be aware of the food and cooking content on here, (like last christmas' Pulled Turkey, or home made fried chicken) and I stumbled across a recipe from Spiegel Online (yeah, a bit weird, but hey you're on a Wargaming Blog reading about food, so don't judge me) on Veggie Christmas Dinner. I liked the idea of the puff pastry dish and talked with my mom about a potential christmas dinner (and she suggested Pork Wellington). So with Wellington although being the capital of New Zealand, and reminding me of my trip in the late summer, I was ready to go.

Moving and cooking

A short update for the summer time. You've seen the coverage on reviews and some recent travels like Salute or the Burg Stahleck.

I've been busy preparing my move in a few weeks. I am trading in this view from my desk in the Chaosbunker.
