It is almost always in your best interest to alert your Villain to what you are doing. As fun as they are to plan, Villains rarely appreciate surprises. Be sure to keep your Villain informed about your activities, and, as often as possible without infuriating your Master or Mistress, ask permission before engaging in anything outside of your determined minionly duties.
Sherlock Holmes, my goodness. Fierce protectiveness of his legion of minions like woah. Like woah.
That’s tomorrows date, my birthday, and also the day that the Hunger Games officially premieres. I am, at this moment, preparing for some ice cream and the midnight showing of this long-anticipated big screen portrayal of one of my favorite books. I’m allowing myself a small vacation from my minionly duties, in honor of my getting older, by putting forth 110% effort in my detail attending this weekend instead of my usual 120%.
No shirts, no shoes.
Easy-peasy, warm, delicious, nutritious supper: roasted vegetables.
Turn your oven on to 420°. Rinse about six medium-small red potatoes, one red onion, and peel however many carrots you desire. Chop potatoes and onion into decently sized chunks (small enough that they will cook through, thick enough not to burn to a crisp), and slice carrots about three-quarters of an inch thick. Toss in a nice big bowl with lots of seasoned garlic pepper (I like McCormick Garlic Pepper Seasoning, with a grinder) and enough olive oil to coat. Dump into a casserole dish, and pour on vegetable stock. There should be enough stock to cover the bottom of the pan, and a little extra to coat and flavor the vegetables. This will keep them from sticking to the pan, and keep them moist while they roast. Put the pan on the middle rack, and cook until the vegetables are as done as you prefer. I put mine in for fifty-five minutes, and they came out just right. After they’re finished cooking, let them cool for a few minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and fill up a heaping bowl full of roasted goodness. Pretty dang delicious.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN (REVIEW):
- Six red potatoes (or close to six)
- One red onion (medium)
- Carrots (between three and five should do nicely)
- Vegetable stock
- Garlic pepper, olive oil, salt, black pepper
- Oven to 420°
Now hop to it.
Project complete. I suppose now is the time for an introduction?
and occupation is minion. I work diligently to attend details, spend a lot of my free time on creative endeavors, and hold the firm belief that the public is grievously undereducated when it comes to the topic of minionhood.
Last day of the year? Indeed.
That’s cool, guys. I’ll just keep working on this present I didn’t finish in time for the holiday.
