Meat, cheese, alcohol 

Chopped liver, served with toast, raspberry jam, brie cheese and a glass of cider.

The recipe for the chopped liver:
# Chopped liver
* 750 gr chopped chicken liver - fry in butter with the onion till lightly golden
* 3 onions sliced thin and fried till golden
* 5 hard-boiled eggs
* Seasoning
* 1 tsp of salt
* 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

1. Put the eggs in the food processor and chop them
2. Put all the rest in the food processor, until it gets the texture of chopped liver, but not too much. You want it to be lumpy and not pate
3. serve with bread/jams etc

Pork chop & egg noodles 

I frequently make meals that just happen to be very low in fat (apart from the tiny bit added by the lean loin chop, the only fat in this recipe is one teaspoon of bacon fat) without really being healthy, I'm almost on to something

# Shaved Brussels Sprouts and Fennel Salad

* Brussels Sprouts, ends cut off and thinly sliced
* Fennel bulb, thinly sliced
* Apple, julienned
* Parmesan or "Italian 3-Cheese blend"
* Balsamic vinaigrette of your choice

1. Eyeball amounts of everything to taste (This initially happened because I had a little of everything on hand, no precise measurements were used)
2. Combine everything except the vinaigrette and toss
3. Add the vinaigrette and toss



i might make some stew

bought some frozen stew vegetables, have stew meat,

cold brew coffee

literally the laziest coffee ever it's great


  • coffee
  • water
  • french press or, alternatively, literally any vessel that can hold water and coffee in it


  1. put the coffee in the french press
  2. put the water in the french press
  3. leave it overnight in the fridge
  4. serve, add whatever you want, milk, sugar, whatever
  5. alternatively if using a non-french-press brewing vessel, just like, filter it through a coffee filter to serve

ezpz its good

@recipebot just for craps and laughs

Lunch today is an open sandwich with mashed chickpeas, pan fried courgette and berloumi cheese and a sunny side up egg! Afterwards I added a little bit of sriracha, it was super good 😁

decided to make something different
tonight and whipped together a doro wat from this recipe:

i deviated slightly and added coconut milk. i think this might be the first time i have had ethopian food, its very good

technical-side instance meta - I goofed 


Big oops.

Sorry y'all, I didn't realize that sidekiq had died.

So uh, federation was entirely busted for a while there.

I'm very sorry for the inconvenience, everything should be back to normal now, let me know if anything seems weird!

Tamagoyaki & rice 

I've been thinking about Japanese food again, since watching Midnight Diner

I adapted this recipe for the tamagoyaki: I added more soy sauce, less mirin, and some minced green onion

I really wanted to make it in a rectangular skillet, but I don't have one, so I used a non-stick loaf pan right on top of the stove. The omelet tastes good but as you can see it has some dark edges from where the thin pan didn't disperse heat well. Next time I'll use lower heat

The rice is plain white rice with Trader Joe's umami mushroom seasoning mixed in

Sunday mornings are for Caesars.

  • lime juice (one lime, anywhere from 1-2oz)
  • 3-4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • a good ol' squirt of hot sauce
  • horseradish (teaspoon? Tablespoon?)
  • black pepper
  • you can put in vodka, gin, bourbon, or whatever; I didn't feel like it this morning

Rim a highball glass with celery salt, garnish ambitiously (in this case I had cherry tomatoes and sweet gherkins; more traditional would be olives, cocktail onions, maybe pickled baby beets, possibly even salami slices. The trimmed celery stalk however is not optional), top with Clamato juice.

Hi! I joined this instance to post pictures of food shamelessly 😁 I was a picky eater who now enjoys trying new dishes! Have been leaning towards vegetarian but still enjoy (with different amounts of guilt involved) eating meat and fish. Have recently started fermentation projects, like sourdough and kombucha, with varying degrees of success πŸ˜…

Looking forward to meet everybody πŸ˜„


Tried a recipe from David Chang, miso-butter corn, but replaced the bacon with crisped up mushrooms with a tiny bit of liquid smoke. Worked really well, and went great with yesterday's extra fluffy bread 😁

re: instance meta - quick announcement

instance meta - quick announcement 

The instance may experience some downtime soon as I update to fix a critical bug that has just been recently fixed.

Basically: Followers-only posts could, in some circumstances, be seen by non-followers, which happened when the follower used to be following you, and then if you used the account settings followers list to remove them, the "forced unfollow" wouldn't federate properly and that person could still see your followers-only posts.

This update fixes that issue.
