A crusade against the Ellipses of Evil! ( I SHIT you not! )

https://jamestoddlewis.com/ellipses-of-evil/

Excerpt!

Now, for perspective, the Fallen (v3) has 272,407 words and is 688 pages long, as formatted for a 6×9 novel print format.  There were 6,754 ellipses in the book!  That means, on average, every 40th word was an ellipses.  Oi.  Doctor Cass was right!



OMG That had to be several pages worth.

LOL -- walnuts and black beans  


Step 1

Process walnuts in a food processor until finely ground. Place ground walnuts in a bowl. Process portobellos in a food processor until chopped. Add butter; process just until combined. Add mushroom mixture, freekeh, oats, beet, black beans, mayonnaise, soy sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic to ground walnuts; mix thoroughly to combine. Chill 1 hour.
