Recipe for power hungry eaters: Bolognese Machiavelli

I love this. From a site featuring 101-word stories called ommatidia.

BOLOGNESE MACHIAVELLI

  1. Arrange to have garlic and onions cast into hot oil.
  2. The carrot and celery you must divide against themselves. Ground beef, too, shall turn upon the burner; crush any coherent resistance with a spoon of wood. Sautee until no hint of blood remains to stain your hands.
  3. Perhaps, in a dark place without witnesses, the tomato shall meet with the knife.
  4. The basil and parsley you may use without consequence. For long minutes, all shall be muddled and roil on the surface of the flame.
  5. If it is most advantageous, store cold for the proper day.
Once, when I was going to write my great Mafia epic, I read Machiavelli’s The Prince. That’s what makes this recipe awesome. But, I think it’s also pretty cool that Assassins Creed features him as a character.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
