Tomato-corn chowder

It's not technically a chowder since there's no dairy or seafood involved, but it's a thick, hearty soup. Goes great with a sandwich or just a pile of crackers. I like making hearty soups when corn is in season -- I cook the corn ears in the stock, cut the kernels off and boil the cobs to get all the corn flavour out. But here's a simpler version of the recipe that doesn't involve as much screwing around!

I'm eating this soup while I type, it's delicious. )

I made some reeeeally tasty stewed pork for dinner tonight, out of stuff I bought at local market and/or scavenged from the hostel kitchen. Here, I'll approximate a recipe.

Pork and barley stew ...thing )

And I guess I'll do this thing!

the that's my favorite! meme

I'm going out to see some stand-up comedy tonight. I miss stand-up sometimes, you guys.

Working on cosplay stuff for Anime North. This year we'll have a whole Mother 3 party! Me and Dashie are reprising Kumatora and Duster, buddy Noah will be dressed up as humandisguise!Boney, and the adorable [ profile] sakugarne will be our Lucas. I'm so excited! And if we run into any of the other Mother 3 cosplayers from last year, I'll die of hysterical joy (again)! That Flint ... was the most amazing Flint. Oh, and there's apparently a Korean grocery store close to the con and I can't wait to see what magical goodies I can drag home.

Started another novel. This one's called Reason. We'll see if the name sticks. In the meantime, BRB mashin' Refresh on my srs E-mail account to see if some literary agents want to read Remedy! It's gotten about twenty form rejections so far. Cue anecdotes about how many times [insert popular book/author here] was rejected.

Know what time it is? Recipe time! I've given people simplified versions of my chicken stew recipe, but here it is the way I do it.

Freakin' heck, my brain hurts, why am I not asleep.

I can't stop watching Alizée. She just. Her shimmying. It's hypnotizing. If you're wondering why that fish design on her shorts seems significant, it's because the French lyrics mention hanging out with her pet goldfish in the bubble bath, hell yes it's a hotness/crack OTP.

And in other news, uhh, hmm. Have a recipe!

Puttanesca sauce )

Now I need to think of something to put on the authorblog, ghhh, I'm so lazy with that thing.

GUYS GUYS I finally caught a wild shiny Pokemon! \o/ It only took me 300+ hours of Silver and 92 hours of Sapphire to find a freakin' shiny Pokemon (other than the red Gyarados in Silver, obviously), eehee, this is exciting! She's a Shuppet. I was actually kind of thinking to raise one, so this is cool. In other Sapphire news, I finally beat the Elite Four and am on to this ridiculous WTFery that passes for legendary Pokemon quests in Generation 3. In my day, we just walked up to the damn things, I'll tell ya whut.

Also, I found a great recipe for a chicken pot pie. One of the other waitresses had some friends coming over, so she basically paid me to make this delicious-looking recipe for her. I fiddled with it a bit and it was all kinds of delicious, so I might as well share the love!

As always, feel free to ask if you'd like me to explain any cooking processes or suggest substitutions or anything!

And now ... hmm, what was I doing. Tags. Yes, tags! From the Paradisa plot that blew my mind like one of those goofy slide whistles. Better go do tags.

I was inspired by Valentinite to make pancakes, because it's been a while since my last batch of experimental pancakes. Oatmeal and dried fruit? Cool, I figured, let's go with it!

I'm at about 23K on my NaNo. See, I can pound out 3K in a day whenever I put my mind to it, I'm just lazy and really hating how melodramatic and pointless the draft is right now. I plan on bribing myself with a stupid nonsensical ninja invasion scene at the end of the month.

In other news, I'm makin' ribs! Here, have my recipe, make 'em for someone you like but for the love of all things holy, wait until ribs are on sale!

Citrus teriyaki ribs )

And oh, what's this? A meme from [ profile] neutraltwin? Don't mind if I do!

▪ Leave me a comment saying "GUREITO!"
▪ I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
▪ Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
▪ Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions

I could talk about me all day! )

Oh holy crap, why is it this late. Dinnertime! Then, uhh, bedtime!

OMG. I just finished improvising some of the best pancakes I've ever made, they're like the bastard lovechild of a banana muffin and a pancake. Lemme share the recipe while I still remember what I did.

Banana nut pancakes )

I really need to make pancakes more often, especially pancakes crossbred with other sweet recipes. I'm thinking an apple-rhubarb cobbler pancake would be pretty glorious.
