This New Year has been a little nuts for me. New internship, new projects, my goal to run 730 miles this year…I will be posting sporadically. For the first post of 2015, I wanted to do another bit on hosting friends for an anime marathon. The show is Tokyo Ghoul and the food is the sandwich.
When you have the time, taking the moment to make ramen from scratch is truly something beautiful. Much better than the store-bought variety that’s 1 dollar a pop. This recipe is a modified version from Half Baked Harvest, using beef instead of pork and acorn squash, but it is just as good and heart-warming (or artery-clogging, take your pick). I also want to take the time to apologize for being MIA due to NaNoWriMo and having extra work for both my internships.
Two gluten-free heads working together is better than one. Especially when it comes to reinventing comfort food. Did I reinventing? I meant trying our hardest not to cry when trying to enjoy traditional comfort food. Is there any food more comforting than pizza? (Hint: there isn’t).
This weekend was special for me and Matthew, for it was our 2nd Anniversary. We decided to celebrate in the best way we knew how. Which involved two baking projects. I’ll provide the recipe to this one, since it actually worked (with some adjustments).
Farmer’s markets are great. It’s fun to interact with the people bringing the food that goes to your table. Usually, my parents buy produce, such as tomatoes and cantaloupes when in season. Last week, though, I stumbled upon a stand that sells ostrich eggs and bison meat. I’m used to seeing bison in the form of ground meat, but these guys sold steak. And here’s how it went.
As you, dear readers, know, I went to Brazil over the summer and while it was winter there, it was a much more pleasant wintery experience than the single-digit temperatures Fahrenheit (well into negative teens and 20’s Celsius) we have in upstate New York. Therefore, to bring back some of the warmth of South America, I decided to attempt a feijoada, a hearty Brazilian meat stew. Due to my fridge being overrun with vegetables, I had to ad-hoc some of the meat portions, which gave me a good excuse to go outside and take some beautiful pictures of ice. As you have probably noticed, I have been out of the blogging loop for quite some time. More on that later.
As usual, before coming back to campus, I go on a massive shopping spree with my parents. By “shopping,” I mean grocery. I picked up a Cornish hen from Westside Market because why not? I had apples, so I decided to stuff it and this is what happened. My friend, Zac, also came over to watch American Horror Story: Coven.
