Cooking ||| 30 Day Writing (RP!) Meme: Day Fourteen

Why, oh why, do people use cornflakes as breadcrumbs? I used my last chicken breast from the pack I bought last week (frozen until today), and made it in a different way. Cut into strips, stuck in buttermilk for an hour, then breaded in cornflake crumbs and various spices.

The chicken itself, outside of the coating, was good. (HOLY COW, I love buttermilk! It smelled SO GOOD! I should have tasted some plain, but I didn't think of that until it was in the bowl with raw chicken in it.) However, the chicken with coating tasted like cornflakes. Nothing else, just cornflakes. Why would anyone want food that tastes like cornflakes? (Other than breakfast cereals...)

Turning the chicken tenders into chicken parm improved them enough that I ate this one serving, but I'm not sure if I'm going to eat the rest.

When I try again, I'm going to do this same thing but with plain breadcrumbs.


14. How do you map out locations, if needed? Do you have any to show us?

Generally, if I need to keep track of places in a RP scene, I'll make a little sketch with boxes and circles and lines to give me a rough idea of how things are. This is pretty rare though, because none of the RP I've been in have been so exact about things. You could pose "Joe leaves his quarters and strolls off to the mess" or something like that.

PokeMUSH was an exception to that, as it was a world that we needed everyone to see in the same way. Funny thing is, this is the only map I remembered making. However, when I went looking for that, I found all sorts of maps I've made for PokeMUSH! Tiny little ones like:

To... the big complex one I can't find now. I'm pretty sure I made one like this one, but when you clicked on each location you'd get a popup of what pokemon could be caught there...

So, all in all, few to no maps in my personal RP. I don't feel the need to know exactly where things are and where X is in relation to Y.
