Butternut squash soup w/ baguettes (my mum made the baguettes, I just made the soup)

Steak & sweet potato fries 

I always cut my steaks in half so I can enjoy them twice, here's the other half of yesterday's strip steak with baked sweet potato fries

I used the oil from Lao Gan Ma Spicy Chili Crisp to coat the potato wedges and then I put the spice mix part of it into some mayo and sour cream to make a dip

I wish my phone could take a picture of dark and light roasted things without making them look burned!

raw meat

Made it all! homemade hummus, homemade pita and homemade zhug!

Hummus recipe v1

# 2-3 cups of chickpeas, soaked overnight. Check the date
# one squeezed lemon
# few tablespoons of tahini to taste
# 2 bay leaves
# onion, halved
# 2 garlic cloves, halved
# 1-2 teaspoon of cumin
# salt and peper to taste

Serve with:
# extra chickpeas
# paprika
# olive oil


1. Put chickpeas, bay leaves, onion with plenty of water to cover in an instant pot (or pressure cooker) and cook on high for 20 minutes with 15 minutes minimum natural pressure release.
2. Strain out the chickpeas and remove the spices. Save some of the water!
3. In a food processor combine all ingredients, you can use the water from the pressure cooker to get the hummus thinner as needed. Remember tahini could make everything thicker when combined with water.
4. Blend till as smooth as you like it.

Serve with pita and your preferred toppings

If elected, I will work to pass bipartisan legislation requiring general mills to make the monster cereals available year-round

Steak & sweet potato 

I should eat way more sweet potatoes than I do, I love them

There are so many good topping ideas, this time it's crumbled bleu cheese with enough soft butter to make a spread, then lots of sliced scallions on top


i’m still out here making sides - this time it’s a barley based dish with bacon and peas. it’s very tasty.

i used pearl barley instead of “whole hulled barley” thinking it was the same thing but the cooking time according to the packet was 15 min less than the recipe, so maybe double check that one.

also cooked more bacon and stirred it through instead of cooking to a crisp and sprinkling it on top


re: auto cw: could contain food 

@eletious hm water chestnut is an interesting one!! also shallot was recommended to me multiple times so i definitely think i'll be trying it

thank you!

re: auto cw: could contain food 

@pandora_parrot i already do use a bit of celery in it when i make it!

shallots is an interesting thought,,

re: auto cw: could contain food 

@pandora_parrot yeah it's basically both from what they've told me

hey so i really want to make japanese curry for me and my roommate but my roommate really does not like onions at all

and when i make it, i use a lot of onions

does anyone have any ideas of something i could use to substitute for onions? or if that even makes sense and i should just leave them out entirely


Steak, entrecôte, not sure which part, we found this place that has amazing meat. And we are getting better making them.

Hey all! A few other instances that I'm familiar with have been noticing slight issues with federation and how home timelines update.

If you notice anything weird, please feel free to let me know and I'll look into it as soon as possible to try to get things fixed.

As far as I can tell, everything here is running normally, but just a heads up that if you're noticing that your home timeline is oddly slow, it might not just be you.

Pasta in mushroom - sundried tomato sauce 😊 eating the last of the wild mushrooms I had in the freezer

Today's dinner... I guess the closest thing would be a coconut curry or sorts? Ground tvp, carrots, mango atchar and lots of spices -- read: moving next weekend and have to empty the fridge and kitchen cabinets.

@orbitcooks @ponfarr I think it did!! at least I understood it in the context of "this is a cooking instance" haha
