Bwuahaha I for realz lol'd on this one.

 

And I think I might dabble with that couscous shrimp sausage thing.   I am ... dare I say, starting to ... bend rules with recipes these days!   I am still excited for my 3rd round of left overs on Thursday, of the chicken verde chili with beans and ... RICE! Not quinoa.   Because, seriously.  F dat grain!  It must not lift, because it didn't even bulk yo.

 

Also, I did the same thing today.   Body felt weak and fatigued, so I opted out of the run this afternoon.  If I feel better after dinner, I'll get my groove on.  But if not, then it was a rest day!    Yay for us growing in this aspect!  /highfrive

Couscous is really easy to make and to adapt. Good job on listening to your body.

Was the shrimp pre-cooked?

Yes it was pre-cooked and frozen. I dumped it in frozen to the skillet. It took as long to thaw and heat up as raw shrimp would have taken to cook.

I've wanted to try that product, but I'm concerned that I'll overcook it.  I guess that's always a danger with shrimp.

Remember if it's precooked you're just warming it up. It's safe to eat as is. Whether it's already thawed or you thaw it with the skillet, you can grab one at any time to taste it and see if it's ready.

That makes total sense.  Thanks for the tip!

Three ingredient lazy person shortcut that's in the same vein:

 

1. Cook rice

2. Skillet up some shrimp (raw or otherwise) with some Old Bay. Add sliced smoked andouille as you see fit.

3. Deposit skilleted shrimp on rice.

 

For extra yummyi-ness add cocunut milk to the rice while it's 3/4 cooked.

I want you to know you have successfully encouraged the encourager. Also, here are some things you may have missed:

Here is a more complex version of what I described above: https://imgur.com/gallery/7ib1EAt

My single episode cooking show: Guest stars include Sra. Tanque, @Wolfpool, and  @PrincessMononoke who is Mrs. Wolfpool and whose youtube channel this is on. I was clean shaven in this video. Don't worry, the beard is back. The astute observer who also remembers that far back will notice the crosspoint (cross stitch?) dragon on the side of the refrigerator made for me as a gift by @darkfoxx as can be seen in the thumbnail.

Coconut milk is awesome. The only thing wrong with it is I did not discover it till my 30s.

I'm using that from here on.

 

Do you remember Justin Wilson's Cooking show?

He does more Cajun than Creole, but it comes to mind.

 

Today is a good day. No cooking today, but I did get a haircut and do the KB workout today. With the haircut and the workout at the substation I didn't get home in time to cook, so I didn't worry about it. I ate intuitively for lunch, it was a little earlier than normal but I ate just enough to get the right kind of full.

I loved his shows on PBS on Saturday Afternoons.

Yes he is. Apparently that accent was something he affected for the camera.

For sure, he'd crack jokes (usually bad ones) the whole time.

Welcome!

 

Today is a good day. Our Police Department had a Cadet Graduation today, and then a Promotion Ceremony (two different locations) so I did the invocation and benediction at both (Short opening and closing prayers, because I'm the chaplain on call this week). I got a burger and did one of the roll calls at my substation. I am going to get groceries this afternoon and may or may not get a walk in later.

Today is a good day. We finished up our intuitive eating small group. Some of us went to an Indian buffet for lunch afterward. Sra. Tanque and I went out after and got Christmas ornaments for this year, while we were at the store I found a Hufflepuff pin, which we also got. Dinner was power slaw, with a homemade dressing of apple cider vinegar, olive oil, honey and mustard. We also had roasted Parsnips and butternut squash. 30 minutes at 400 degrees with avocado oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, and white wine vinegar. For protein we had chopped chicken thighs, cooked in a skillet with apple cider vinegar, avocado oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. It all went together really well.

Huh, you're a Hufflepuff? So far we've matched on every personality-related test we've taken, but I'm a Ravenclaw.  :P  And no, I still haven't read the books or seen the films (#homeschooled) so I know very little of what that means besides Snooty Knowledge Wizards.

Noticing a lot of vinegar in all this food. Does it all taste vinegar-y? It sounds like it all goes together beautifully, as I would expect.  ;)

Actually, I'm an INFP, and you're an INFJ (You actually match closer with Sra. Tanque than me on a lot of things, and she's a Gryffindor). It does not taste vinegar-y. I suspect you're thinking of the smell of white vinegar. The flavored vinegars I use enhance flavor, but I don't use enough for them to overwhelm. The only one you have to watch out for is balsamic vinegar, that one is awesome, and can be powerful.

I'm commonly typed as a J because I've had to pick up a lot of J qualities over my years of college, but when left to my own devices I'm a P.  :)  

 

Is there a Hogwarts house for Divergents who don't fit in just one??  #mixingmetaphors

Balsamic is powerful and can blow out sinuses? I must be thinking of the wrong one because I've never been blown away. I was thinking of the balsamic vinegarette that my restaurant uses (I don't know the difference between vinegar and vinegarette). Its a brown liquid sprinkled with what i believe is black peppercorn.

No, when there are more than one possibility for a house then the sorting hat takes a student's preferences into account. Some people really stump the hat and make it take a while, they are known as hatstalls.

I know horseradish can clear out sinuses, I can see where strong balsamic could potentially affect them. A vinaigrette is a mixture of oil and flavored vinegar, often used as a salad dressing. Your restaurant probably mixes balsamic vinegar with olive oil, peppers, and a few other things.

It's not as strong as horseradish - I was kind of exaggerating.  :D  It's super flavorful and very vinegar-y and always makes me pucker up a bit. But it doesn't really blow me out. I was being dramatic.  :P
