06:24 pm - A busy & fun weekend
Saturday was made significantly more fun and interested because athenian_abroad invited Aaron, Daire, teaotter, amberite and I over for an unusual and interesting alternative to watching movies - what he referred to as "text-night": we all came over with things to read aloud. My own choice was the rather quirky Kage Baker short story: So This Guy Walks Into a Lighthouse. A very good time was had by all, and the pecan coconut tarts I made were a hit, as was the impressive spread of food put out by athenian_abroad's charming partner Jasper.

Sunday was even busier, first I went to the second otherkin gathering lupagreenwolf & feedle hosted. Becca was recovering from a cold and Alice was at work, so I took the bus down to the coffeehouse where it was happening with Lupa. In addition to Lupa, Feedle, and I, 8 other people showed up. Among the most interesting people there were a trio of young people who seemed to be definitely worth knowing and impressively thoughtful and well-grounded. There unfortunately were also two other people with the sort of classic (and fairly extreme) paranoia-persecution mindset that indicates serious instability of some sort, but with luck they won't show up again. In general, this looks to be an enjoyable gathering that I definitely look forward to attending again.

Then, teaotter showed up and we went out to dinner and then out to a free preview of the play Cabaret at Portland Center Stage, because our friend Matt, who is a fairly prominent Portland actor managed to get tickets and invited us along. The show was excellent and is definitely well worth seeing if you are in Portland.

Here's the basic recipe I used, I omitted the sweet tea caramel sauce. I also rolled the dough extra thin and used a 3.5" cutter (a tea cup) so the dough better fit in the muffin tin. I also ended up using 1/25 cups of pecans and 1.5 x the amount of filling. As for the coconut, I added 1/4 cup of coconut to the filling before pouring it into the muffin tin. The result was excellent.
