So this is what Scorp used, Ken ? Do you still have that odd kentraption?
Send it to me if it is convenient for you. I would like to try it. Have you patented it?
Cheers,
Npap

I sold it to a 200 year old young lady in 2410 who installed MInt 86 on it and went to visit her ancestors in 2130. It was in great shape, only had 45,000 years on the ageometer.

As I am reading the wonderful & helpful posts I found this

Ingredients
Scale ingredients to servings

4 fresh mint sprigs
2 1/2 oz bourbon whiskey
1 tsp powdered sugar
2 tsp water

Muddle mint leaves, powdered sugar, and water in a collins glass. Fill the glass with shaved or crushed ice and add bourbon. Top with more ice and garnish with a mint sprig. Serve with a straw.


I am not fond of whiskey I substituted Rhum for a taste test
Skipped the water, added a half cup of crushed ice, in a frozen glass, I keep the Rhum cold

I got this off of BuzzFeed. I've made it many times, and I'm quite fond of it.

Ingredients:
1 lb. (~ 0,5 kg) boneless chicken tenders or boneless chicken breasts
1 jar (6 - 7 oz; ~180 - 200 g) of pesto sauce (my preference is Barilla)
2 average-sized Roma tomatoes, or 1 can (14.5 oz, ~411 g) of diced tomatoes
1 pouch (8 oz; 227 g) shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:
  1. Thoroughly coat chicken tenders or breasts in pesto sauce and place into appropriately-sized casserole dish. There should be no remaining pesto sauce.
  2. I prefer (though this is not required) to let the chicken set up (kind of semi-marinade) in the pesto sauce for 20 minutes.
  3. Set your oven to 400°F (204°C).
  4. Cover top of chicken in sliced roma tomatoes, or in diced tomatoes (depending on which you decided to buy).
  5. Cover this over with mozzarella to taste
  6. Bake for 40 minutes.
Everything is in hand. With this tapestry... and with patience, there is nothing one cannot achieve.

Too bad, too sad. You guys are urging me to eat and drink against my doctor's orders.
What a temptation!
Anyway, I wish you a good time. And stay young!
Cheers.

It will be 10 years next week when I joined the Mint forum. Npap was here to give me a warm welcome. :)

I started out using Mint 2.0 Barbara and have used more than half of the Mint editions since then.

I've tried many different Linux distributions but I'm still using Mint as my main desktop, due to its many features and reliability. :D

Hello Ken and Scorp,
Glad to see you here again. Yes, ten years it is since we joined the Mint forums and it seems like yesterday.
Both of you Ken and Scorp have been very dear cyber-friends. I really enjoyed every moment that we exchanged
ideas and humorous chatting.
It is strange to feel as if I know you in person. I hope you are both doing well and I wish you the best of health and prosperity for you and your families.
Wishing you Happy Holidays,
npap

Hi Scorp and Npap!

Npap, you're looking good! Have you found a youth elixir? If so, I can use some. :D

Scorp, if your avatar is your picture, all I can say is you must have had a hard life! :wink:

Happy Holidays to you and everyone on the Mint forum.
