Yall are so fancy and I'm over here with my deep fried frog legs
I have no idea what that is... (I haven't ever heard of Puertorrican Habichuelas as far as I am aware) but it looks tasty.
Good to see that you moved into a nicer home Shrek.
(But seriously did you just walk outside and grabbed some mushrooms and frogs?)
The joys of being a redneck. I do a lot of foraging
hah good stuff. Those are some serious mushrooms that you found.
Those are Oyster Mushrooms. They are way past prime but still plenty good and useful. So much more flavor when they are young. About $12-$15 a pound in stores if you can find them
Haha, it's Puerto Rican Rice and Beans basically (though there are potatoes of some type as well). Different hispanic/latin countries have their own names and takes on the dish the same way there are regional versions of the different foods in the US. Habichuelas are the bomb! And pretty cheap to make it you use dried beans.
Don't mind me, just making some bread!
I made more curry tonight and I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I think that it is my best batch so far.
Ground beef curry btw
I posted this in the daily thread, but I'll put it here too...
Homemade sourdough. My little yeasties have been alive for a few years now, but they sat dormant in the back of the fridge for the past 3 months...I was worried that they wouldn't wake up, but they were ready to bake some bread after two feedings.
Dang. That's a healthy starter you've got!
Yeah, they surprised me...took it out of the fridge, dumped off the liquid and removed the discolored top layer, then fed it. The next morning, there were a few bubbles. I fed it again, not discarding any, and by the afternoon it was doubled. I reduced it to its normal weight, and used 1/4 cup of the extra in the dough. The dough rose at room temp for about 14 hours, then shaped and proofed for another 3 hours.
Sharp Cheddar omelette with some sauteed onion, green pepper, ham, bacon, and grape tomatoes...
(don't judge my chipped plate or dirty countertop!)
Noting fancy just today's breakfast, an egg sandwich.
A couple more loaves. These were 50% whole wheat, 50% ap.
Spoiler: ...Georgia approves...
I was going to om nom nom your post but I can't
Made some delicious pork fried rice with braised spare ribs:
Guess this can go here, resized the insanely big pics.
Oh man, Pretz is stupidly good. I've never seen the olive one before, they look so yummy. Shout out for Men's Pocky too, even though the name is strange. It's just dark chocolate. And the boxes with animals on it look like Koala's March, which I can find in stores here. Daughter loves 'em!
The pretz tasted pretty good more cheese than olive flavor. Right on about the Pocky, it's dark chocolate, but it's not a really strong flavor of it. The cookies are almost identical to Koala's March, can find them around here from time to time. Nearby grocery store has strawberry and original Pocky and occasionally the Matcha green tea ones as well.
My nieces and nephew raided the boxes when they got out of school and took what they wanted. The rest I'll just give away to family and friends and keep a few items for me"now if it these were BBQ pringles that would be a totally different story" .
Nice nice... I went through a huge Asian snack phase some 10 years ago and I've been trying to keep it under control by only buying stuff I can find in stores lately. Might have to end that streak soon. As far as stuff I can find in traditional grocery stores goes, it's choc/straw Koala's March, straw/chocolate/green tea/cookie n cream Pocky and rarely I'll see plain Pretz. Oh, and almond crush Pocky if I'm really lucky.
