Butt

Includes

e r s c o tc h B r e w !

an all-new recipe for

Butterbeer makes its appearance many times in the Harry Potter series; it’s one of the most popular beverages in the wizarding world. Harry enjoys his first butterbeer on a forbidden trip to Hogsmeade; he doesn’t have the required permission, but he slips in wearing his Invisibility Cloak (see harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 10). If there’s one thing in the harry Potter series that all harry Potter fans want to know about, it’s butterbeer. Aren’t we all dying to taste it, to see how really delicious and warming it is? Now you don’t have to travel to the wizarding w of harry orld Potter at universal studios to taste this wonderful brew; you can make it yourself.

¼ cup granulated sugar ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon water ¼ cup golden syrup 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 teaspoon butter flavor ¼ teaspoon rum extract ⅛ teaspoon salt 1 1-liter bottle carbonated water, such as seltzer or club soda, chilled

1. Put the sugar and 1 tablespoon water in a small saucepan and cook over medium-

high heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved. Wash down the sides of the pot with a pastry brush dipped in hot water. 2. Continue to cook without stirring, watching the sugar carefully. When amber spots appear, swirl the pan to even out the color and prevent scorching. Continue to watch, tilting and swirling the pan frequently, until the sugar turns a deep amber color. Remove from the heat and add the remaining ½ cup of water. Add the water carefully, as the mixture will bubble up violently. Return the pan to the heat and stir constantly until the mixture is liquefied again. (The cold water will cause the sugar to seize into hard lumps.) 3. Allow the mixture to cool slightly and add the golden syrup, vanilla extract, butter flavor, and rum extract, mixing well. Transfer to an airtight container and chill. 4. Pour out 1 cup of the carbonated water and carefully pour in the chilled sugar syrup. The carbonated water may foam up, so add the syrup slowly. Cap the bottle and turn gently upside down a couple of times to mix. Serve over ice.

420 Things You Didn’t Know (or Remember) about Cannabis

Whether readers own a bong collection that would make Cheech and Chong proud or claim never to have inhaled, they may think they’ve been there and done that. But in this irreverent look at cannabis, readers will learn a thing of two about the almighty leaf. So lie down, eat some brownies, and find out: • • • • How pot can help cure a hangover How to recognize and deal with buzz killers How weed has been used as camouflage and a truth serum during war Why to never, ever buy weed from a carnie

This smokin’ book is guaranteed to keep readers giggling—even if they don’t inhale.
I.M. Stoned (Boston, Ma) is a pseudonym for the editor, who pleads the Fifth to having smoked pot, but perpetually has the munchies and has seen The Big Lebowski and Half Baked way too many times to be completely innocent.

The Quotable Stoner
Holden Blunts

More than 1,100 Baked, Lit-Up, and Zonked-Out Quotes in Tribute to (and as a Result of) Smoking Weed

What stoner hasn’t wanted to . . . be the funniest in a bong circle? Articulate his argument for legalizing cannabis? Enlighten her peers with grasstastic quotes from stoner culture? Readers will find these answers and more with this smokin’ resource at their disposal. Readers will recite bionic gems from Homer Simpson (“Okay, let’s see, toke as needed. Caution: objects may seem more edible than they actually are.”) to Bob Marley (“When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself.”). The Quotable Stoner: Because getting high doesn’t mean readers can’t sound even more awesome.
Holden Blunts (New york, Ny) is the pseudonym for the author, who can recite snoop dogg lyrics and movie lines from Pineapple Express and the Harold and Kumar movies, but can’t remember where he stashed his bong . . . oh wait, there it is, nevermind.

The Danktionary

Will B. High

The Danktionary gives readers and their pot-loving friends all they need to know in order to understand what they’re talking about—at least while they’re passing around a joint.
Will B. High (Boston, Ma) is the pseudonym for the author who had his first experience with marijuana during a trip to Northeast New Jersey in 1999 when he took a single hit of Malawi Gold and, after passing out for eighteen hours, awoke with a new passion for cannabis.

Business today is war. As companies fight their way back from recession, they need to know how to recapture customers, boost their profit margins, rally their workforce, and seize on the competition’s weakness for an advantage. More than twenty-five centuries ago, the brilliant Chinese military theorist Sun Tzu explained how to accomplish these things. True, he was talking about warfare. But as thousands of executives have discovered, his strategies apply equally well to today’s business scene. Containing an extensive commentary on the authoritative translation of The Art of War, and filled with dozens of examples from successful companies, this volume shows businesspeople how to capture the high ground and defend it against rivals. They will learn to coordinate resources and choose the right timing for the best execution of their plans. And they’ll learn how to use Sun Tzu’s theories to implement tactics and strategies for victory in the marketplace.

Bad Austen

The Worst Stories Jane Never Wrote
edited by Peter archer and Jennifer lawler

Imagine Mansfield Park set on the Jersey Shore. Or Mr. Darcy heading up the Starship Enterprise. Or Emma Woodhouse traveling through time to indulge her matchmaking. If you think that sounds like bad Austen, you couldn’t be more right. It is a truth universally acknowledged that an author as popular as Jane Austen should be imitated, expanded upon, and parodied. Now, in the tradition of the Bad Hemingway and Bad Faulkner contests, comes a new collection of hilarious efforts to write the worst excerpt from the novel Jane Austen never wrote. Bad Austen: Because the only thing better than good Austen is bad Austen!

Each spread includes five little nuggets in different academic subjects that lead to larger lessons learned over seven sittings so something new is learned every week. (Since the average person visits the bathroom once a day—for more than just a pee-break.) Now readers will leave the bathroom a little lighter and a little more enlightened.

Advice from Dead Celebrities
A.J. Barnes, Illustrated by Aaron Waite

If celebrities that have gone to a better place could come back and give us one piece of priceless advice, what would it be? Karen Carpenter: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. John F. Kennedy: Don’t mess with Texas. Mama Cass: Chew your food thoroughly and carefully. James Dean: Click it or ticket!

Aaron Waite (East Bridgewater, MA) is a longtime artist who, as the illustrator for this book and 501 Things to Do with a Zombie, apparently has a penchant for drawing dead people. He lives with his wife and cats, who are still very much alive.

Katniss’ Favorite Lamb Stew With Dried Plums
In Book One of The Hunger Games, when Caesar Flickerman asks Katniss what’s impressed her the most about the Capitol, she instantly answers, “the lamb stew . . . with dried plums.” While her fans laugh, Katniss is smart to appreciate the stew—it’s both healthy and filling. Dried plums, or prunes, contain plenty of antioxidants and aid in digestion . . . not that Katniss needs any help in eating, once she has food to actually eat! (The Hunger Games, Chapter 9) • 5 pounds lamb, cut into 2-inch pieces • 2 teaspoons salt • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper • ½ cup all-purpose flour • 3 cloves garlic, minced • 1 large onion, chopped • ½ cup water • 4 cups beef stock • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 2 teaspoons white sugar • 3 teaspoons brown sugar • 3 cups diced carrots • • • • • • • • • • 1 cup diced zucchini 1½ cups diced celery 5 cups dried plums 2 large onions, cut into bite-size pieces 3 potatoes, cubed 2 teaspoons dried thyme 3 teaspoons chopped fresh Rosemary 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley 2 bay leaves

Tips from Your Sponsor
One of the many great things about this recipe is that it’s super easy, as long as you aren’t daunted by the long list of ingredients and possess some of Peeta’s patience. To simplify this recipe even more, you can make it in a slow cooker. All you have to do is throw all of the ingredients listed above into a slow cooker on the low setting for at least ten hours before you want to eat the stew. About half an hour before you plan to eat, stir in the flour and put the slow cooker on high. Let the stew sit for five minutes to allow the stew to thicken. Ladle into bowls and serve with a hunk of crusty bread.

1. Put lamb, salt, pepper, and flour in a large mixing bowl. Toss to coat meat evenly. Heat olive oil in a large pan and brown the meat, working in batches if you have to. 2. Remove lamb to a side plate. Pour off fat, leaving ¼ cup in the pan. Add the garlic and yellow onion and sauté until the onion becomes golden. Deglaze frying pan with ½ cup water, taking care to scrape the bottom of the pan to stir up all of the tasty bits of meat and onion. Reduce slightly, then remove from heat. 3. Place the lamb and garlic-onion mixture in a large stock pot. Add beef stock and sugar, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Bring mixture to a boil, cover, and simmer for one and a half hours. 4. Add the vegetables, dried plums, and spices to the pot. Simmer for thirty to forty five minutes, or until meat and vegetables pierce easily with a fork.
