[Table Talk] Return of Table Talk

We'd better post something then... Hmmm, something about... loganberries. Yes, a challenge. Fifty poundz to the man (or woman) who weaves "loganberries" into a post!

Although... given loganberries were created fairly recently and in California, I think my poundz are safe. Maybe Dewberries?

Okay I'm up for the challenge.

Loganberry pie

2 1/2 cups flour (have extra available)
1 cup unsalted butter cubed and very cold
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
2 shots rum ice cold
1 cup sugar
3 to 5 lbs loganberries
1 tbsp heavy cream
1 egg

Combine flour salt and tsp sugar. add butter. Try not to touch it so it doesnt heat up. add in rum a drop at a time until dough barely holds together.
Drink the other shot of rum. :smiley:
Split dough into 2 lumps, one slightly larger than the other. put both in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Roll out pie crusts
poke holes in the bottom of the crust with a fork. combine washed and drained berries and cup of sugar in layers until heaped to the top. Leave a little sugar for the top. put top crust on. Brush on egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Poke a hole in the top. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Belladonna has an unfair advantage ... she lives and works in California, and probably know more about Loganberries than the lot of us. :slight_smile:

Someone want to try to work in the organ of Zuckercandl into a post? :smiling_imp:


Mark probably didn't know that when he threw out the challenge. :wink:
Personally I prefer the Boysenberry which also was cultivated here.

Mark, You are HILARIOUS!

Ha ha! Thanks. That's you on the Christmas card list.

Brutus ex, you've a PM.


Where is everybody?

Erm... double post thing

I'm still here...

My guess is, those who are academics are getting ready to move into campus, One player is still minus one PC, and I'm waiting on a PM from a player.

Summer, as experience shows, is typically a Bad Time for PbP games. Holidays (both the American and British definitions) and such. Right now, I'm busy cleaning up after 5 days of Severe Thunderstorms (Sunday through Thursday), and since my parents, whom I live with, are out on the east coast on vacation, I'm having to take care of everything myself, plus work 40+ hours.

I'll remove the double post, don't worry.

IF Mathius' player doesn't respond by Monday Afternoon, I'll take matters into my own hands and post for him.

Ja ne,

Here I am! Ready to play or make a pie at a moment's notice! :slight_smile:

H ha. It may have to be the pie.

How well do you think it will travel?

Put it in a box, with some Dry Ice to keep it cold, and Fed Ex will ship it anywhere. However, I think there may be a small problem with the Royal Customs House, and the importing of foreign baked goods...

It seems governments don't like the importation of things like processed sweets (foreign made candy is expensive in the US - about double the US price), and there are problems with importing fruit and vegetables. Still, your pie may get there, you just may have to pay more in duties than if you went down to the local bakery and bought one there.

However, this Pi, I can ship electronically to you...

Pi = 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937 51058209749445923078164062862089986280348253421170679 82148086513282306647093844609550582231725359408128481 11745028410270193852110555964462294895493038196442881 09756659334461284756482337867831652712019091456485669 23460348610454326648213393607260249141273724587006606 31558817488152092096282925409171536436789259036001133 0530548820466521384146951941511609

There might be an encryption routine that goes by the name of boysenberry, or loganberry, or what not... but all I could find is plain ol' Pi...


I think I'll just pick one up when I next visit California. It might avoid the security alert.

Tell me about it. When I lived in Campbell I used to buy my British fix from the local British food shop. I paid waaay over the odds for the stuff I bought, but to be fair to the shop they had to charge that to cover their expenses.

Fabrica is basically waiting for a response to his question. As I read it he's still where Corvus left everyone.

Hand of God incoming, 4pm CDT 13 August 2007.

Or, when all else fails, cut scene, fade to black, new scene.


Hiya all, I thought that Mathius etc. were on their way back to the covenant. I was waiting for them to arrive.

In game time we're still a good 10mins away or so.. (As far as I know).

(Must learn Leap of Homecoming......)

:laughing: You are a crack up, Steve!
The hand of God. eh? Okay, I'll be on the look out for it.

Yeah, we gotta have all that high security or all sorts of foreign pies would be smuggled all over the place. Think of the chaos!

Assault with a deadly bakewell?
Aiding and abetting a flan?
Receiving stolen banoffi?
Disturbing the cheesecake?

Running a pastry ring...
Consorting with a known kringle...
Carrying a concealed coffee cake...
