Ali over at GIMME SOME OVEN seems to be pretty sincere and direct. Her web site isn’t that bad, but I honestly don’t need 20 pictures of chicken to sell me on her recipe every time I make it. Nor do I need recommendations on cooking thermometers now that I own one. I need her damn recipe, and I need it towards the top…
Hi it’s time for another exciting “wow this is a good recipe but the ads suck and I want an easier to view experience” here on Are We Green. This post is Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal!
I make black beans a lot. I use the instant pot. Every web site about it is bloated with ads and talks about seasoning. Let’s strip that down to an actual general recipe with just the basics for one pound. If you want to try making more or less beans, go and visit the links. AFAIK you can put in other…
This year I ate donuts. Just a whole mess of them. They sort of became my thing, a coping mechanism for an increasingly uncertain world. I actually thought about why I like donuts more than other dessert pastries and perhaps I’ll write a more thorough post about that some day. For the purposes of this article though,…
I’m losing my mother this year. In a way, she’s already lost to me. I don’t really want to talk about her situation in detail. What I choose to reveal on the Internet is actually guided by her opinions and my respect for them since I think they’ve served me well. Instead, I’m just going to talk a bit about how I’ve…
Last week I’m pretty certain I totally forgot about the morning post because I was traveling and sick. So from that unexpected hiatus, the Thursday morning post rises anew and totally fulfills my obligation of the post contributing to the theme of the week. Hooray!
I have a special song for all of you.
I’ve lived my whole life in the North East. I guess technically now I’m in that forgotten region of the country called the Mid-Atlantic, but my heart resides further north.
Jake: Our chicken’s name is Lorraine?
They’re still around, but I mean... does anyone use these?
Thankfully no one has pointed out my favorite song about Pioneers by Bloc Party. And I get to share with you two versions, the original and the remix by M83.
It’s actually “He Can’t Hit He Can’t Hit He Can’t Hit” but whatever. I always enjoyed this scene. Sa-wing battah.
I've been out of the loop I guess, but apparently it's a Kinja "feature" that if you save a draft in a space that isn't your personal Kinja, then the draft is visible by other Kinja authors in that space.
White Flint Mall in Kensington/North Bethesda MD is essentially closed. I hear the Lord and Taylor is still open inside, but otherwise it's an empty husk.
Here's a music video from a song from an album called The Unrelenting Songs of the 1979 Post Disco Crash. It imagines your typical fantasy characters as members of a 1970s rock band.
I have mentioned this before on the kinjaverse, but a time ago I went traipsing around Brasil with friends. One stop was Brasilia, where we stayed with a friend. I have many fond memories of that trip but one aspect I'll never be able to forget was the architecture.
I'm not actually a big Bowie fan directly. I have not listened to any album of his straight through and I'd bet that I wouldn't recognize many of his songs. But a lot of other people are fans and covered his tracks (sometimes to my surprise, like the Grum song below).
For when the metal ones come.
