Da Beast Shuttering For Holidays

santaclaussugarplums.jpg

We'd like to apologize for the lack of posts lately, but we're gearing up for a VERY BUSY beginning to 2009, what with the Cline Boys dropping their "twin" solo releases -- Alex's Continuation and Nels' Coward -- on February 10 and a traveling medicine show-style mini-tour -- March 25-26 at Yoshi's in Oakland and March 27-28 at REDCAT Theater in Los Angeles -- featuring The Nels Cline Singers, Alex Cline's Continuation Quintet, Myra Melford's Be Bread and, of course, the Jeff Gauthier Goatette. Also, we're getting ready to hand over the keys to our buds over at Greenleaf Music for some guest blogging for a few weeks.

In the meantime, here's our little holiday gift por vous (courtesy of The New Homemaker):

CHRISTMAS TEQUILA COOKIES

1 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup (two sticks) butter
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
2 cups dried fruit (dried cranberries or raisins)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans
2 cups all purpose flour
1 liter bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila (silver or gold, as desired)

First, sample the Cuervo to check quality.

Take a large bowl. Check the Cuervo to be sure It is of the highest quality.

Pour another 4 ounces in a measuring cup and drink.

Turn on the electric mixer.

Beat one cup of the butter in a large fluffy bowl.

Add one teaspoon sugar. Beat again.

At this point, it is best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK.

Try another 4 ounces, just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy.

Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit, picking the frigging fruit off the floor.

Mix on the turner.

If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a screwdriver.

Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift 2 cups of salt or shomething.

Check the Jose Cuervo.

Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts.

Add one table.

Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.

Greash the oven.

Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over.

Don't forget to beat off the turner.

Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.
