It’s going to be august soon. I feel like the fun part of summer has already got away from me, and now I’m just left with an interminable period of heat until it has the common decency to freeze over again. I feel like I’m enduring. my life rather than actually living it. The heat does that to me. It all saps the spirit, when you get down to it. I’m like Lana Del Ray or Eddie Cochran. I got the summertime sadness, I got the summertime blues.
Apathy and exhaustion on deck. Truth.
ID10-T, being the sunny optimist he is, decided to turn this idea into a theme. We are meditating on sloth this month. The theme for August is LAZINESS.
You may see this as a rickety conceptual framework for some herb-ish call for simplicity “But guys, simple recipes are important too!” Rebutting your assumptions would require mustering some passion though, and that seems contrary to the spirit of this entire endeavor.
As always, the themes are optional. You wanna gas yourself up and play wunderkind you go right ahead.
Submissions are due to our state-of-the-art Texas distribution center by the 15th of the fetid swamp that is August. You probably want to get them in the mail by the 10th.

Keep It Simple Stupid
FA Forest Fruit @3%
INW Yes We Cheesecake @2%
FLV Vanilla Pudding @1%
Flavor Menu: Berry Cheesecake
Notes & Other BS:
This is one the few 321 recipes that i threw together in past few months that didn’t turn out like shit. I think it turned out pretty tasty and showcases INW Cheesecake.
The FA Forest Fruit it a great berry mixture in my opinion and stands up well in a mix. Yes We Cheesecake quite a ridiculous name, but nonetheless it’s pretty damn tasty. Has crust notes and the “funky” cheesecake note that makes a cheesecake flavoring so good. I just wanted it a little richer and for it to have more body. Which is why I added the FLV Vanilla Pudding. It adds a nice thick body as well as a rich vanilla note in my opinion.

Aged Burley Flake
* INW Peanut Tobacco- .25%
* HS No. 5- 2.5%
* FLV Kentucky Blend- 1%
* TFA DX Peanut Butter- 4.5%
Menu: A nutty aged Burley. Pretty simple.
This is modeled after my favorite NET Solani Aged Burley Flake. It’s got a very complex flavor that is dark, sweet, and nutty. I have been playing with this for a while before I got the DX Peanut Butter, and planned to make this more of a peanut butter and tobacco thing, but it came out tasting closer to the NET than my previous go at it, so I decided to keep it the same, and just drop “peanut butter” from the name. Sneaky me.
HS No 5- a toasty, nutty tobacco. Makes perfect sense.
FLV Kentucky- I wanted something a bit dirtier and crisper than Red Burley, so I went with some Kentucky. Kentucky Tobacco irl is a Fire Cured Burley, so it just made sense.
INW Peanut Tobacco- super strong stuff. Tastes like roasted peanuts to me. Not really any tobacco. But it’s great for an additive for something like this.

FLV Vanilla Pudding 3%
TFA Dulce De Leche 2%
FA Vanilla Bourbon 1%
Menu Description: Vanilla and dulce de leche pudding
Lazy time! Here’s a dessert that will go straight to the hips. Snorlax the pokemon came to mind for this theme. Who else played Pokemon back in the day? Never got that holographic Charizard..
A 1-2-3 recipe was a simple choice for taking it easy. I wanted to use FLV Vanilla Pudding and try to actually make a simple pudding. My numerous attempts in the past were never that special. This is our gourmet pudding base.
TFA Dulce De Leche is a special flavor. One time I made a tester of it and forgot about it. When I tried it after a lengthy steep, I was blown away at the flavor. It’s a little one-dimensional, but the dark sugar creaminess was really surprising to me. Dulce de leche is, per wikipedia: “Dulce de leche is a confection prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that derives its flavor from the Maillard reaction, also changing color, with an appearance and flavor similar to caramel.” I thought this would give a simple vanilla pudding a deeper flavor profile and make it taste rich and desserty.
I don’t have any straight up vanillas, except FA Vanilla Bourbon. I don’t think it’s anything crazy, just a pure vanilla with a clean taste. I think it classes up the mix and adds complexity. There is no bourbon in vanilla bourbon.
I hope you guys can kick back and enjoy some tasty pudding.
