This is my absolute favorite time of year. I think I’ve touched on this a few times before, but up until about April of this year, I spent the previous three or four years of my life homeless and scrounging for food on the streets of Silvermoon (and eventually Brill, Org and before Jaina and had her flunkies wake me up at 3am with a wand in my face and lots of screaming, Dalaran).
But one thing I could always count on was Pilgrim’s Bounty. There was always so much food. Just everywhere, beautiful, delicious, limitless food and no one looked at me funny for eating as much as I could literally stomach or more than ‘my fair share’. I was just another person appreciating the fruits of the harvest and the hard work of all the chefs. Continue reading “Pilgrim’s Bounty Week: Wetlands Cranberry Chutney”
As you may have noticed, there is no recipe this week. Why is that? Did I forget to cook?
FEL no I love eating you think I’d forget to cook?! That’s crazy talk.
No, the real reason is I’m cooking SO MUCH. Pilgrim’s Bounty is next week, and as someone who has spent way too much time without enough to eat, it is seriously my favorite holiday.
So in preparation for next week, I’m taking a break today.
Check back VERY soon for the Week Long Pilgrim’s Bounty Extravaganza!
Love you all!
“– Is back! Pryn is back! Pryn –”
Frantic panting, noises of excitement that don’t form any coherent words. “Pryn’s back — it was — oh man — oh man!
I gotta — I gotta calm down. Gotta breathe.”

The crystal crackles to life, the sound of movement around a room, simple chores and light cleaning.
“Dear You… It’s been a week. Normally I wouldn’t worry but. I dunno. It’s… This week has been weird. And I have a really weird feeling that something bad is about to happen. Or something good is going to dissolve or… I think the Human phrase is I’m waiting for the shoe to drop. It doesn’t really make much sense, it’s more like waiting for a manabomb to explode, I guess.

EDIT – Updated with Gnomish measurements as well as Goblin. Sorry, I learned with Goblin.
So this one is a little later than I wanted it to be? Why? Because yesterday was Hallow’s End. Oh my Light, I’ve never experienced a Hallow’s End before — well. I mean. I kinda had? But it was mostly running in fear from the people acting weird and suddenly there’s a fucking Horseman??
I could go on and on about Hallow’s End — and maybe I will! But for now, my apologies for the lateness. Apparently they weren’t joking when they said if you ate too much candy you’d get sick.
But what I actually wanted to talk about was this. I call it Lordaeron Surprise.

The Crystal starts with frustrated growling, uncharacteristically heavy footfalls treading a line in the floor.
“I can’t breathe. I can’t sleep. I can’t eat. I don’t… know what’s wrong with me. I’ve been fine. I’ve been fine! I haven’t done anything wrong I –“
The sound of pacing, back and forth, back and forth, rapid, shallow breathing.
