I just made stovetop popcorn. It's really ugly, blackened, and small, but it's pretty good.

I'm drinking a nice cup of earl grey with a chocolate chip muffin on the side. I try different teas from time to time, but they never really stay stick around.

Stovetop popcorn is my fave. I use a wok on medium heat. When the popping slows down take it off the heat. Cheapest best snack time snack ever.

Since it's getting warmer now I should prepare some iced tea. I usually have assam and such but maybe some green tea would be nice as well!

I just had a drink in a new restaurant in the area. I know the owners and they were very proud.

I made some really delicious chocolate cinnamon tarts today. Unfortunately I gave in to temptation and ate much more than I should have.

I've started making large batches of hibiscus tea lately, usually with cinnamon and vanilla. I want to try experimenting with nutmeg or other spices too. It's a great drink to have on a hot day.
10 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-06 22:34
How do you mean large batches? Do you set a large pot or do you make your own blends?
11 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-06 23:22
I just set a big pot on the stove and make a lot at once. About four or five liters for half a pound of dried hibiscus flowers is what I use but some people say that's too strong for their taste. After that I bring it to a boil and keep boiling for around 10 minutes, then let it cool for an hour and add sugar. I just keep adding sugar until I think it tastes right but I think it's usually about 1½ cups. Then set it in the fridge for 24 hours, strain into other containers, and enjoy. It's surprisingly easy to make but finding the dried flowers was kind of troublesome.

I took my dad to a neat Korean/Vietnamese restaurant last night. It was his first time having Korean food and he really like it!
17 Name: grey !C.MxxuCiTo : 2013-06-14 01:19
My friend took me out to eat at a Asian restraunt. I had some Chinese fried rice with vegetables and a Thai iced coffee. I don't really know what goes into an iced coffee to make it Thai, but it was really great! And I don't even like coffee.

I cooked my own scrambled eggs today! And I ate an entire thing of grapes.

Oh man I love eggs so much.Scrambled, fried, poached, boiled, deviled, even in hot chocolate. I'd eat eggs with every meal if I could.
Is there any food as simple and delicious as an egg?

Where the hell can I get some good Japanese curry in Southern California? I'm willing to drive to the western half of South Valley for it. It takes way too long to make on weekdays.

even in hot chocolate
22 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-16 23:15
I should explain a bit. It's not like you just drop it into a much of hot chocolate or anything. You warm up some milk and move it to a blender, then add some chocolate and an egg and blend them up. Just make sure the milk isn't so hot that it cooks the egg before it can really emulsify. My dad used to make it when I was younger so now I've taken to making it myself. The egg really adds some creaminess to the drink. Sometimes I use coffee and sugar instead of chocolate too.

I often give eggs as presents to my friends with the motivation "you can do almost anything with it!", and seriously, you can make:
boiled eggs, fried eggs, raw eggs, mayonnaise, omelette, meringue, pretty much any cake, ice-cream, casserole, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, eggnog, chocolate, frosting, pies, soufflé, frittata, pancakes, pizza, etc..
boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew

Having some nice coffee. I know lots of people drink it in the morning but I've always had it closer to 5pm.

The pizza I ordered was actually cooked the way I wanted it, something that rarely happens. I was so happy I ended up eating 5 pieces of it and now I feel sick

I have a friend who knows I am poor and do not always eat well because of it.
Whenever we hang out, he always buys a large pizza and watches anime with with me while we each eat half of it.
He acts like a big badass jerk all the time. But I think it's just a front.
30 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-25 20:48
It's really clichéd, but that image is almost always a front. That doesn't mean there's anything wrong with such a front, but it's nice to keep in mind.
31 Name: A taste of summer. : 2013-06-25 21:35
Yeah, he buys me things all the time and I really don't know why. If I ask why punches me.

Normal peanut butter tastes like candy now. I've been missing out.

I recently went to a Texas Steakhouse since I live in Texas, heh.
It was really nice. The service was great, they showed me how they worked.
I think I chose a Dallas T-Bone steak, I tried it medium rare and it wasn't bad at all. I'm still undecided on the rare part, while it was delicious no doubt it's my primordial instinct that keeps telling me I'm going to get sick eating raw mean.
36 Name: Anonymous : 2013-07-05 13:14
Sounds like a nice restaurant. I'm also not a big fan of rare meat; it has to be really expensive to taste good rare.

Today I found out a really light snack.
You need ritz crackers or similar, baby spinach, and smoked oysters. Put them together like a sandwich and just pop it in your mouth. It's really good.

Go to the store, buy some lemonaide and strawberries. Squeeze the juice from the strawberries and add it to the lemonaide. Add ice cubes and serve.

For a fresh summer pick-me-up I recommend the Paprika. I just had one and it was really delightful. I thought it was just a tad too strong so I had one with an ice-cube.
I just held the icecube in the paprika while eating it and it slowly melted while eating. It was surprising how fantastic it was.
If you try this out, please do this outside, because it's quite a messy affair.
40 Name: Anonymous : 2013-07-15 16:26
I can't for the life of me figure out how this is supposed to work. Where I'm from, paprika is a spice made from ground peppers so just eating it alone seems really strange. Adding an ice cube doesn't help clear things up either.

My bad, I was actually talking about bell peppers.
42 Name: Anonymous : 2013-07-16 16:07
Ah I see. So you just eat a chilled bell pepper on its own? I've never eaten one alone like that but it might be good.

How good is Baccano? I've watched and liked Durarara, should I watch Baccano too?
45 Name: Anonymous : 2013-07-26 19:18
I think you're in the wrong thread but I'll answer anyway. I've never seen Durarara so I cannot make any comparisons between them. Baccano is a good watch, but don't expect anything spectacular in terms of plot or character development. There are a ton of characters squeezed into 13 episodes, and many plot devices that are pretty much left unexplained or untouched. It's one of those shows that you watch "for what it is". It's best to not ask too many questions and just take the ride. It's a fun watch that will most likely confuse you in its beginning episodes, but as you watch more of it, things fall into place. You might as well watch Baccano for the sake of watching it, it's quite popular. Also the English dub is quite, quite good.

My friend introduced me to doing something really stupidly simple, but so good.
You know how when you go to the hot drink area of a cafe and you see the dispensers for hot coco, french cream, milk, and different kinds of coffee?
Well mix that shit all together nigga. What you get is a chocolatly-creamy-coffee that calms you and wakes you up all at the same time.

I tried sushi for the first time from my friends college cafe. I thought it was weird, but I did not like the avocado. We also made onigiri one night. I had never eaten that before either and it was great.

I've got a hefty number of peaches but no idea what to do with them aside from eating them raw. Any suggestions? I'm willing to try just about anything but the simpler the better, as I'm not a very skilled chef.

Peach pie would be pretty easy and very satisfying. You could also try making peach wine if you're up for it!

It looks like peach wine would require more tools than I have. I've never made a pie before though, I think I'll try that.

Today i cut a big fluffy croissant in half and put slices of garden fresh tomatoes on it, sprinkled with garlic salt, pepper, normal salt, red pepper, dried basil, and mozzarella cheese, and then put it in the toaster oven for a few minutes. It was good. It didn't taste like pizza because pizza is gross. This is the first time i've posted here.

Ok this time I made a kind of impromptu tomato sauce from my garden tomatos and for some reason I was possessed to add cayenne pepper to it. It was pleasant.

I got myself a nice chili plant (bird's eye chili, the small but extremely painful hot when eaten, variant)...
which I grew by accident; I basically just throw away seeds from leftover dumpling garnishing to a pot.
never need to buy the chili garnishings anymore!

So there's this stuff called rice milk, and I like it better than real milk.

Rice milk is great if a bit sweet for my liking. Make sure to also try coconut milk and especially almond milk (my personal favourite).

Coffee is awful and I need to cut it out of my life. And I would too, if I were not so damn sleepy. What can I eat or drink that will keep me alert and awake without caffeine?
70 Name: Anonymous : 2013-09-29 21:02
Just make sure you have a balanced diet and sleep enough. I get the same energy boosts from bananas and apples as I do from coffee.
71 Name: Anonymous : 2013-09-29 21:49
You could always use tea instead of coffee, but suggesting a different source of caffine to sustain whatever problems cause you to be so sleepy probably isnt good advice.
Tea is nicer than coffee though, in my opinion. Coffee churns my stomach.

Oh hell yes, I fucking love tea. But it does not keep me awake when I have to pull an allnighter on a big paper.

Chocolate milk. Light on the milk or else it will only make you sleepy.
or... Well, how about some rest then?
Doing powernaps might help: drink caffeine on whatever form, get a nap for 15 minute. After 15 minute, the caffeine kick in and you will wake up freshed. (to avoid accident, please use alarm clock too)

I, and the entire family came together in the garden of an olf baroque castle to have an Afternoon tea together, and even tough I was still a bit ill, the food tasted really good.
there where scones, all kinds of hearty Tapa's and sandwiches, some quiche and many kinds of chocolate and cakes, but the tea really made my day, for they served a black tea with dried persimmon, that actually held the flavour of both well.
it really was a most enjoyable day
75 Name: Anonymous : 2013-09-30 16:23
That sounds absolutely wonderful, especially having it in a castle like that! I envy you, sir.
Where I live theres a very nice little tea shop that sells tea and lunch, and cake. I like to go there with my girlfriend.

I've been at my new university in the big city for a couple months now. As I type this I am sitting facing a window in a big arm chair. I am in the fifth floor of a library and outside the window I can see the streets, a bunch of big buildings, a bier cellar, a radio tower, and a saltwater cove called Back Cove. One day, when I know I am not to be swamped by homework, I am going to just go for a walk in this new city and find new things.

I love to have some english breakfast tea with shortbread as a morning snack, after breakfast. With cooler weather coming in, the tea makes me feel warm and cozy. I think I am going to make this snack a daily ritual. It relaxes me, and the stress just melts away.
