A baked potato, green beans, and corn. Mmm. Good.

For now, though, my decorative Bassoon conversion for TS4. =)

It's Lent so beef and pork are ruled out and I'm diabetic and carbs are out. So, can of tuna.
All in all, a bad day. Losing weight tho!

Sims are better than us.

Something fishy.
(Actual fish, that is. And not fishy fish. This one was quite tasty).

Had to use up the rest of the bag of salad and the tuna paste I made yesterday and also really didn't feel like making any food, so toast with salade and tuna paste it was

I've been playing with the crockpot and am learning that there are less good recipes for it than I had hoped. I tried a curry and it's rather meh, which is especially disappointing given how much it made. Oh well, meh curry it is!

*Update* Meh curry ended up being tastier after it had sat overnight. No adjustments to the seasonings were needed, but as it was all kind of just "slop", I added some cooked green beans. Served with yogurt (homemade) and a quick touch of Sirache sauce (I know, I know - different cuisine! But it's so garlicky and delicious!), it came out pretty good. Didn't even serve it over rice since it was a starchy curry with sweet potatoes and chick peas. Still, I have no plans to try this one again in the crock pot. I'll keep looking, so far I've found four recipes that I would try again, which is about half of the recipes I've tried so far.

Pasta as my stomach is being a complete bitch over the stress of reading the financial section of the news on my smartphone.

As much as SSI beneficiaries like me are waiting with bated breath, I can't believe they screwed up the order to print it out in the first place.

(No...think calmly, next month, you can buy pre-orders of Miitopia for the Switch and the Complete Series of Rugrats on disc. Nostalgia tripping should be worth it.)

Lately, my eating habits are at best a nightmare. As much as I like cooking, washing dishes in junior year of high school broke me. I sang Tom Lehrer tunes from his album "An Evening (Wasted) with Tom Lehrer" to avoid ceiling high pile-ups in what I called "Dirty Dish Jenga". Tom Lehrer also invented a mnemonic song for the periodic table with a tune from HMS Pinafore and the Jell-O shot.

"Christmas" dinner (well - kind of. We did the same kind of roast we usually have during Christmas, which was pretty tasty. I think I'm getting the hang of that one now)

And made chocolate covered mini mint eggs (well... more like roundish blobs than egg-shaped, but they're yummy - I've given up putting these into chocolate molds because it requires about double the amount to fill them and that's too much mint. They're much better when it's just the right amount and not a mouthful). Might make some more chocolates tomorrow, but not mints (got enough of those).

Steak with béarnaise sauce, because I wanted to learn to make béarnaise sauce. It only occurred to me while I was eating it that I'm not actually sure I've had "correctly prepared" béarnaise sauce before, so while mine was certainly GOOD, I don't really know if I did it RIGHT.

I don't know if this has to be something you cooked yourself, but I had gammon and chips for tea, with a fried egg on top. Oh and salt and pepper chicken bites for a starter.

I was out with my friends, at a pub (well, sitting freezing outside in our coats).

Coronavirus is so weird, we were only allowed a 2.5 hour time slot, and had to put a mask on to pop in and use the ladies, the staff were eyeing me up each time like "well I suppose you can come in if you need the toilet....but we're watching you!"

Had a chicken gyros at a terrace today. Should have added tomato to my diy gyros instead of the onions, but other than that it was pretty good

Potato gnocchi with freshly grated "Parmesan"*

*P.S. Real Parmesan cost $1,000 per wheel and is used as collateral in certain transactions. It can only be designated as Parmesan if it comes from Parma or Reggia in Italy. Whatever we use in the States is fine, but can't be technically called Parmesan.

Grilled pork chops with a blue cheese sauce, roasted potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, and onions with rosemary and thyme, and fresh fruit. Delicious and able to be cooked almost entirely on the grill outside so I didn't have to heat my house up any more than it already got on this oppressively hot day!

I've been baking bread. It's amazingly delicious and what magic is this? Flour, water (or whey, because I've also been making yogurt), and salt and - voila! Something delicious and chewy is formed.

I hate cooking this time of year, but I hate the food allergy issues even more so I guess I need to make it work.

Dudes in the house are having Slow-Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

I'm having 1-Pot Vegetarian Chili Mac. It is a fall recipe, but whatever. I ordered some gluten free pasta and I can toss everything in the Instant Pot once the beans are done.

I'm either going to be having a veggie burger with sweet potato fries or pizza just to get it out of the freezer. As of today, we're doing a round of pantry only cooking as both freezers are full. The only thing we'll need to buy is veggies, fruit, milk...that kind of stuff.

Dudes are having hot wings, rice and veggies.

Sheet pan meals have been my go to lately, tonight is no different. I've been tired all day; looks like somebody gave me two black eyes during the night.

Sheet pan meals can be made however a person wants, but they're good for using up veggies that are starting to look a bit meh. Tonight's dinner consists of roasted baby potatoes that are either cut in half or quartered depending on how big they are, diced zucchini, sliced peppers, cherry tomatoes cut in half and sliced apple chicken sausage.

Nothing exciting...steak, brown rice and broccoli.

I signed up for a weekly veggie delivery program / box-type thing. I'm so over getting veggies that are on the verge of not being so great. I don't know if this will solve my problem, but I won't know unless I try it. If it turns out to be a epic fail, I can cancel. I won't know either way until the middle of the month.
