Baked potatoes...loaded.

I bought a huge bag of the largest Burbank Russets I first came across for the first time in 7 years.

They were pretty big, like someone hijacked a restaurant supplier shipment and sold them to the general public.

It has been a while since I've had potatoes this large.

With the uncovering of the Hunger Stones due to drought saying in German "If you can read this, starting weeping", the Belgians are going to lose their shit if they find we still have large potatoes. (Potato crops are lousy in Belgium, among other things related to the Hunger Stones)

Black bean and green onion nachos with blue corn chips.

Blue corn chips? Chips made from Masa derived from blue corn.

Made some cupcakes with chocolate bits and mocca-flavored chocolate cream, and a few with strawberries inside. Tasted great! (It's really a store-bought cupcake mix, but I spiced them up a little, and they turned out really yummy). Also made some scones (that too from a store-bought mix), which turned out alright.

One-crust pie; got a recipe from neighbor. Forgot what a mess I make of crust; flour and grease everywhere. The phone is greased - I didn't even touch the phone! And down the hall is now the cutest kitty foot prints. I did this to use up the frozen white peaches from my tree. Bad idea; I tried to get the liquid out with a colander, then boil the liquid down. Added tapioca. Added flour. Added more tapioca. Finished product was peach soup with a top crust. And the peach pieces were now a shade of gray. I ate the crust with jam.
In other news, I make a lovely mango salsa when I cook fish. And like a side of cabbage slaw; I use a package with 2 kinds of cabbage, and make a dressing of mayonnaise and miracle whip with a bit of milk, lemon juice, maybe bits of apple. Is miracle whip a US thing?

Grammapat, according to Wiki, miracle whip is basically a less expensive mayonnaise alternative. Not sure about the brand, but the company behind it is international, so it's possible the product is sold under different names elsewhere. I haven't seen it where I live.

They don't taste the same. And per their labels, mayo has more eggs, miracle whip has more sugar and vinegar PLUS paprika, garlic, etc that mayo does not have.

Schnitzel and guacamole... started off as a leftover combo and it was one of those combinations that actually tastes better than first impression sounds.

Fujikko yakisoba, Gunma-chan udon and ebi-tempura soba.

Wasn't in the mood to cook and wanted to try the long-awaited package of noodles.

Hiyamugi noodles (structurally similar to udon and somen) with soy sauce.

I received them in my September noodle box.

I made fried shrimp tacos! My roomie and wife enjoyed them so much I got them to double their typical dinner size! I made sure I made my personal sim maxed out his cooking skills to match mine. Everyone loves my cooking a lot, been doing it around 18 years now.

Yuzu Somen in a cup. Came in my Umai Crate for October 2018. Like your standard instant noodles, they reconstitute in the span of 3~5 minutes. It was somewhat sour due to the yuzu flavor in the noodles.

I received the crate in the past couple of days due to Storm season in both Central Japan and Eastern Seaboard United States

Yesterday, fried chicken for lunch, and a big old glazed ham for dinner. Didn't make stuffing or pies because I didn't expect anyone would eat it.
They didn't eat the chicken or ham either. Kid had spaghetti, wife had microwave stuff.
I'm glad they don't feel obligated to eat what I made for them.
Well, I'll eat it... eventually. Schrodinger will help me, I'm sure.

Sims are better than us.

Tailgaters Turkey Chili

I'm not making this with turkey. I'm using organic beef instead so I can have some.

I use this recipe as a base, then change it up to whatever I have in the house. Sometimes I use black beans instead of kidney beans, ect... I was feeling lazy last week when we went shopping, so I bought frozen pre-sliced onions and peppers. Peppers are also stupidly expensive this time of year in my neck of the woods.

I make this in a Instant Pot, allow it to slow cook for 6 hours which is my favorite part, and this recipe freezes well, when I have enough to freeze that is.

Tonkotsu Ramen with Black Garlic Oil. November Umai Crate.

I have taken a liking to Japanese-produced ramen. It's actually tastier than what is produced stateside.

Matcha soba. It's green tea noodles that are either served hot or cold and I'm getting used to eating cold Japanese noodles.

My standbys of udon noodle soup and pork gyoza.

Not much lately. Just been less hungry due to my bipolar mania, which for me does affect how much I eat (this latest bout with bipolar mania started at the beginning of the week). Not to mention, I had my gallbladder removed about 9 years ago, making eating a challenge without upsetting my stomach...

...so last night, my father made me the last of spaghetti I had in one box and I had felt better.

I really want to get back to cooking for myself. I don't mind people cooking for me, it's a nice gesture, but the carthartic thrill of cooking for yourself is something that satisfies my inner artist.
