Partner usually likes Thai food, but didn't care for this. We had the Massaman curry from the same brand last week and he didn't care for that one, either. He thought this one tasted just like the Massaman, but "more like pickles"... huh?! I don't understand his taste buds, haha. We have very different tastes, which makes it tricky to find things that we both like. On the bright side, more curry for me!

The first outing with curb Kitchenaid mixer turned out pretty handsome. Waiting for it to cool before eating it instead of cutting into it now like some bread eating goblin
Today's edible #florespondence: The lilacs are a little past their prime but still smell amazing. I picked a bagful from the feral bushes along the bike trail and soon they're gonna be syrup for cocktails.
I made sunflower seed butter a week ago or so. A bit of work, but sooo tasty, and in the end, the recipe is simple:
1. Roast sunflower seeds in a pan. Oven roasting would probably work as well. I took 100 g, but that's a very small batch.
2. Dump them into a blender with a tiny pinch of salt. Blend away until a smooth paste forms.
3. Fill into a clean jar, store outside of the fridge.

It feels so good to be able to put some effort into dinner again - finally got some spoons back.
Sharing this info and a couple of recipes about using acorns as a food source! This content came from the quarterly newsletter my tribe's administration puts out; acorns were, and still are, albeit to a lesser extent, an important staple food of Northern California indigenous peoples, my tribes included!
And a little native language lession! Words for acorns according to my tribes!

Tried making this #vegan tofu in spinach sauce. Ate with brown rice and it was pretty good. I expected a stronger spinach flavor for how green the sauce was.
TIL: You can eat grape hyacinth!
