Morrissey Rocks

Morrissey Rocks
We found this strange tombstone in Calvary Cemetery in Queens. No date of birth, no date of death. Just “Morrissey Rocks.” Is this the grave of some devoted, anonymous Morrissey fan? An man with an unusual name? Or did some hipster buy a plot and put up a stone, just for kicks? Would the cemetery allow that? I suppose I could call the management company and ask, but I’d prefer to let the Internet spontaneously reveal all.

Mm, Pot Pie

Filed under: Food — Chris @ 2:46 am

The NY Times recipe for Turkey pot pie with chipotle and cheese is awesome, although I did make a few modifications. Instead of the “cheesy stick” lattice top, I made a biscuit topping from this Gourmet magazine recipe (I forgot to add the cheese and they didn’t really rise, but whatever). I used homemade Thanksgiving-turkey-carcass stock. I used 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of whole milk (because I didn’t have enough cream). I added about a 1.5 cups of sliced shitake mushrooms and 1.5 cups of mixed grated Cheddar/Monterey Jack/Colby along with the turkey and veggies. I sprinkled about 1/2 cup of the cheese on top of the biscuits.

I don’t think any of these modifications made a huge amount of difference, although I can testify that it turned out plenty creamy without 2 cups of cream. I would not recommend attempting the cheesy stick lattice.

[UPDATE 12/2/1008] This recipe has frustrated me of late.
