Good morning. It is a rare day that I will eat breakfast at all, and even more rare that I will cook a breakfast, but today I made a breakfast casserole. The batter is almond milk, tofu, and chickpea flour, with some various spices. Added to that are tempeh bacon crumbles, onions, red bell pepper, and shredded potatoes. I'm still not going to be a breakfast person, but this was pretty good. #vegan #willcooks

wow, a little bit of oil worked wonders to get the sticky residue from the label off of glass jam jars! i've been trying to remove it for a while! very pleased! :D

i drew a little comic to share my experience with my family. seems like this kind of thing happens to me a lot but i keep trying lol.

i tried making carrot oats and they're very.... very...... carrotty.
i blended up the carrots first and thought it would be like when i do pumpkin puree + oats because i like that. the carrot flavor is much stronger, though. applesauce and cinnamon make it more tolerable. 😬

It seems to be... hamburger buns. Not as perfect as what comes out of the bag (made by efficient robots) but... wow, I made buns!

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...

making cold brew green tea with frozen strawberries in the fridge overnight. i hope it's good! 🍵🍓

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. 🤡

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.

physical, data link, network, transport, session, presentation, application

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 😶
