    Husband is shaming me on facebook because i have 36 meters of Christmas lights for an 80sqare meters apartment

    (Worse, I bought them when I moved to the 50 square meters where we used to live)

    In my defense I bought them to use as actual light fixtures instead of decorative xmas lights and just never put them up.

    I found out that Satterlly did a bunch of DA outfit conversions, including the Fereldan noblewoman's from DAO and DAI, which means that my Liesim matches my Alisim, because he has the king armor from DAI, and you guys have no idea how happy that made me.

    I usually import a few of my favorite sims from the library into whatever neighborhood I’m playing. Sometimes I make sims for the express purpose of putting them in the background of neighborhoods I’m playing. I just like it when my policewoman sim is called out to the scene of a crime and one of the witnesses she interviews happens to be Luna Lovegood. It doesn’t change anything about the scenario, but it does make it feel more meaningful or sometimes just plain funny if some of the NPCs are personally meaningful to me.

    I think i'm going to do that!! i'd already started editing all the townies to make them

    ... and as i said that, i got that bug that made selecting a family to play go back to the world select screen ): at least I got a couple of cute screenshots out of it, like these: 12-06-19_11-21-00 PM.jpg

    Like, forgive the obviously modern bottle decor on the back of that first one because i used it as a placeholder and havent downloaded similar medieval decor yet. And the modern equipment and bethany outfit in the last screenshot. Focus on Lissies cute face instead

    Also, for someone who is very meh about kid headcanon and generally dislikes kidfic, I am very quick to make my favs procreate on the sims. This lil cutie is Duncan and he is a bastard who cannot inherit the throne because he's a mage too.

    I also love seeing my fave's kids in the sims even though I'm not wild about kidfic. I dunno, it's just cool. Duncan is adorable!

    EGGNOG CHEESECAKE
    For the cheesecake:
    Put some water to boil before doing anything.

    Crust: Graham crackers, melted unsalted butter, sugar to taste, a lil nutmeg, a lil cinnamon if you like your nog cinnamony, pinch of salt. pulverize the crackers, mix spices and sugar, add melted butter until it gets a wet sand texture and becomes pressable. press on the bottom of a removable bottom ring pan, wrap the outside and bottom of it with foil. put it in the oven, turn it on at around 180ºC and leave it there.

    Filling: 600g room temperature full fat cream cheese; 100g sugar; 3 tablespoons flour; about 150ml heavy, whipping cream; three large eggs or four regular eggs, nutmeg to taste, cinnamon to taste if you like your nog cinnamony, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon rum essence, pinch of salt. Sadly you cant use booze in the cheesecake filling because it supposedly doesn't settle right if you do.
    Using the paddle attachment and a stand mixer, start beating the cream cheese on low speed and just forget about it. start working on the crust. leave the cream cheese there until it becomes a smooth paste and kind of runny - it always helped me get a good end product. Add the sugar and let it beat a little while; add the heavy cream and let it go for 2-3 minutes. add spices, extracts, scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a spatula to remove any stray lumps from the sides, then add the flour and the eggs, one by one. you can't beat too long after adding the flour and eggs or it'll get too much air in it, so make sure everything else is smooth before you do and mix these two just until combined.

    Remove crust from preheated oven. using a sieve, pour the cheesecake batter into the pan, making sure there are no lumps left. Tap the pan on the counter a couple times to remove bigger air bubbles and run a knife/fork/toothpick through it, to pop the smaller air bubbles. air bubbles are the enemy when it comes to cheesecake! do not let them live. Place the pan in a bigger pan, put them both in the oven, and then carefully pour boiling water on the bigger pan to cook the cheesecake in a water bath. Leave for 50 minutes before checking; it'll be done when there is a firmer border around 2cm from the pan and the middle is still jiggly when you move the pan. Let it cool completely in the oven and then put it in the fridge for 24h or at least overnight.

    Topping: 6 egg yolks; 100ml heavy cream or eggnog; 2 tablespoons sugar; nutmeg; pinch of salt; 1/2 teaspoon rum essence; 30g unsalted butter, cut into cubes.
    Mix the egg yolks with the sugar and let cook in a pan on low heat or double boiler until it has warmed up and thickened a bit, mixing constantly to avoid making sweet scrambled eggs. Add the cream/nog, spices, and esscence if you're using that. let cook until it has thickened. Turn off the heat and add the butter, mixing until it is glossy and pourable. Pour over the cooled cheesecake and put it back into the fridge, or pour hot over slices of chilled cheesecake for contrasting temperatures.

    also: how big a cake tin did you use? 600g creamcheese sounds a lot but if you used a big tin

    witchknights 27 Bold Enchanter Defends The Fearful

    I used a 25cm tin! It made for a not very tall cheesecake, like, maybe 4cm tall at most.

    Oh, another thing! The heavy cream i use is a pre-sweetened mix for whipped cream, so if you use regular you'll probably need to add more sugar. I recommend tasting before adding the eggs to see if everything is good! The spice and rum can be a little bit too strong at this point because it mellows a bit while cooking
