✅ My dad was a really lazy cook
✅ I didn't eat much really GOOD food until maybe my second live-in relationship
✅ Thank fuck for real chefs on the 'net making fine recipes as accessible as they do
Still amazing. Finished that plate, had to get a second.
It's everything my dad ever wanted a slow cooker stew to be, that such a thing never could be bc
✅ lack of pre-cook browning
✅ stew instead of braising
✅ friggin' slow cooker
✅ trying to keep the veggies from the mirepoix around like they're worth anything
✅ potatoes 🙄 (I made mashed as a side rather than try to shove 'em in this)
And now I think it's time to enter a food coma
Learning about the Scottish English word "outwith" has led me down some weird wonderment paths. #Linguistics friends, especially Scottish ones: It "outwith" just a synonym for "outside"? What part of speech is "outside" in phrases like "outside of it"? Do (other?) prepositions take prepositions like that sometimes?
before I ate, I was in the kitchen saying random strings of letters & numbers as I hurried to prepare some hot dogs :P
After being reminded of a task I forgot,
dealing with getting an old scanner working with my Linux install,
scanning a bunch of photos,
waiting too long to eat lunch,
and mildly stressing the whole time about what I'll cook tonight,
I am very rickety, and almost a shambles
I'll be so glad to finally have a drink in my hand & ingredients on my cutting board, music filling the kitchen
I love it 😺
@zigg They're super cute and you're creative with them 🤗
I look forward to seeing more
food talk, support
I do love cooking. It feels like not just having a necessary skill to survive, but one to enjoy that survival.
Also I do it better than my parents, aunts, uncles, etc. which is a nice nose-thumbing 🙄
I'm really tryin' to get back on the horse after some rough weeks.
Tomorrow is a new thing: braised boneless beef short ribs with a mirepoix that I'll turn into a nice jus, and garlic mashed potatoes
but it's gonna require that I basically don't do shit else the rest of the day
This is my favorite thing this second. 👍🏼
