it sounded like they were confused about where it came from because a few days or so later, something like this happened...
"did you buy this? when we asked for lettuce? 😂"
"yes?"
"hold this!"
"??? yes? lettuce"
"feel how heavy it is!"
"huh i guess that is some heavy lettuce"
"it's way too heavy to be lettuce!! 😂"

today i remembered the time asked my mom me to get lettuce and i bought her a cabbage. at least i can say i learned to tell the difference and didn't repeat that mistake. 👍 i have other go-to veggies but maybe i should start getting cabbage for myself sometime...

today i relearned the value of cooking with a lid... if it starts looking like it's going to boil over, i remove lid and 🤯. i feel like even i knew that at one point but i kind of... forgot about it.
also it keeps the heat in. amazing. 🤡

Not 100% sure what this is called, but we call it garlic grass. It grows out of control in our garden so I'm cooking a bunch of it with dinner tonight omnom

tonight i tried making black pepper stir fry bc it's my partner's fav takeout meal. it wasn't restaurant level and it was spicier than i prefer but it was made with love ❤

i loosely followed this recipe for the sauce, baked the tofu, and used just onion, garlic, red and green bell peppers, and a jalepeño for the stir fry.

Here's a little #florespondence from my walk with the dog today.

The larger is an American Field Pansy (Viola bicolor) and the smaller ones are Tiny Bluets (Houstonia caerulea). Both show up all over this area as soon as Spring arrives and provide a welcome pop of spring colors after the dreariness of Winter.

the ingredients of the Taco Bell 7-layer burrito, misinfo 

hmm... this last (instant pot) batch that i made yesterday also smells and tastes more eggy(?) 😕 it's a bit much

i was hoping making soy milk in the instant pot would make less of a mess....... it did not. think i might stick to making it on the stove and just be more careful not to let it boil over 😶

Lentil Soup

Rinse 1lb dried lentils; toss in slow cooker w/ 8 cups of water or any broth , 1 med chopped onion, 2 ribs chopped celery, 1 chopped carrot, 3 tbsp parsley, 1 minced garlic clove, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 2.5 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp ground black pepper.

i made the last batch of soy milk a bit stronger (1/2 c beans to 3 c water instead of 4) and i like it. i've been putting it in this peach black tea and it balances the peachiness out well imo. 👍

also drank some of the milk plain and cold and it tasted very fresh. reminds me of when i used to sometimes put tofu in smoothies. looking forward to smoothie weather!

When the waffles popped up from the toaster, kiddo said “they’re hatching!” I don’t think I will ever be able to refer to it any other way now.

I don’t know if they’re going to turn out because it’s been a long time since I’ve made them, and never on my own, but I made candied violets today. They’re a mess right now but this photo is the first step, when you rinse and dry them, before you dip them in sugar
