No keen squid cravings today, who knew. But I could murder a salmon filet. If I had one and a pan and a knife om om om.

But I don't.


Recipe Friday
Something I cooked recently:
Pistachio and Raspberry Brownies

This recipe, guys, seriously - I have to stop falling for untested, ingredient-substituting recipes, because I am a sucker. There's cocoa powder in the list of ingredients and not in the procedure. The bake time is wrong, wrong, wrong - I don't think they tested it with eggs instead of chia seeds. It needs to cook longer and slower than they say. And with some foil over the top to stop the nuts from burning. I read the comments before I baked, saw that people had them come out runny, and dumped in a bunch more almond meal and the mysterious cocoa (which from the photo looks like they made some kind of glaze out of? IDK) until I got a suitable looking texture, then baked.

Having said that, they taste great and seem to be keeping great. And I'll make them again. Because sucker.


Something I'm idly planning to cook in the future:
The River Cottage’s Vegetable Bouillon (a.k.a. Souper Mix)

In my eternal search for stock I don't really want to make and skim and ugh, this seems like a flavour base type thing that I could try. With no garlic or onion. (Leeks are so great! I eat all the leeks!)


Something I have concrete plans to cook soon:
Random balls of varying degree of FODMAP suitability and dubious health eating advice:
Pumpkin No Bake Energy Bites
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites
Choc Crackle Peanut Protein Balls

BALLS.

Who am I kidding? I'm gonna buy a big bag of potatoes, make a ton of gnocchi and this:
Focaccia Bari-style.

That is why I bought one of your fancy American ricers after all. Heh heh heh heh. Not sure why the sinister laugh but it feels right. Probably because I read this: These 25 tweets from someone who is “definitely not a wolf pretending to be a man” are comedy genius

I am impressed with your ability to make the untested recipe into a thing that worked.

I feel this on a very deep level.

Choc Crackle Peanut Protein Balls

She asked "can we do this?" She did not ask "should we do this?" And... *looks at url* if she is capable of eating chocolate crackles mindfully she is a better Australian and a better person than I am. How do you do that? How do you avoid having second thoughts if you're not scarfing them down in a mad sugar high while running around a playground?

*looks at recipe* Oh, okay, now I can see how. And I might actually make them, because that sounds yum. And what with no blender to withstand the noise of and then clean, and no stove or oven to heat up the house, that might be an excellent way of feeding oneself in summer.

Best. Twitter.

(And all the peanut butter recipies. All of them. This could be dangerous. Yum.)

Bookmarked those pumpkin no-bake energy bites. Pip has celiac and that looks like a great GF recipe.
