I worked on base coloring some figures for a privately commissioned paint job! Exciting! He is buying a set I started painting and had asked me to finish the rest of the set.

I started it 2yrs ago and tonight I started getting the base colors down on the unfinished models. I was very happy to be able to get so close to the original colors used given that they were a custom mix back then and I was using different Paints now.
[Details in video]

These are pieces of a board game I am painting like their card art

๐Ÿ†• NEW RECIPE ๐Ÿ†• #experimentsineating
I have been wanting to try my hand at making this for awhile and finally got all my ducks in a row to do it. There are tons of different recipes depending on how you want to cook it and what region the recipe is from. I used a combination of these. I am not making the tacos – I just wanted it as a stew.

YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Techniques vary widely as well. Some recipes say to toast the chilis and aromatics, some boil or presoak the chilis, some sear the meat first, some use stock, some use water and powdered bouillon, some put everything in the pot together, some make the sauce first… There are a lot of variations!

As I have never done this recipe before – look at the traditional recipes above and decide for yourself what you want to do.

RECOMMENDED TIPS I SAW & USED
* Take your meat out at least an hour before cooking, season it and allow it to come to room temperature.
* If you are sensitive to chilis or their seeds, be sure and wear gloves when deseeding.
* Depending on your blender, you may need to strain the chili sauce to remove the small pieces of skin left over from the chilies.
* if you are blending the liquid hot, be sure to either use a blender that has an opening at the top to allow pressure and steam to escape or if like me you don’t have one of those you will need to let the liquid cool before blending. [ Full explanations in the recipes ]

Because I don’t have a super powerful blender – I decided to cook everything together and blend afterwards.

There is a lot of information here so I have compiled everything in a walk through on tonight’s video.

๐Ÿ’ฎ QUICK PICKLED RED ONIONS
In the first recipe, I was reminded of pickled onions which I normally keep on hand but didn’t have so I started by doing a quick pickled red onion which I knew would be ready by lunch time. Here are a few recipes to try if you aren’t familiar with making them.

After all the research, all the prep, all the work – I didn’t like it. It was edible and I have no idea what in the flavor profile I didn’t like, but I just didn’t.

Meat was tender…
It was not spicy…
It was just not at all like what I had before and I have to say I’m very disappointed and somewhat grumpy actually! ๐Ÿ˜ก

I don’t want anything else so I’m calling it a night…

So the “bread” is lower in carbs for sure (4 carbs vs 22 carbs) however it is almost three times as many calories for the same weight serving of the bread I normally eat. (108cal vs 275cal) Texturally I was not a fan and I wouldn’t make it again but it was a fun experiment. [Full review in video]

I made the Lasagna for them but silly girl that I am I dropped the box of noodles and they broke… It doesn’t really matter for the dish but as I was cleaning up, I realized I had some broken noodle pieces, some leftover sauce and cottage cheese and figured I would make a super stripped down version of Lasagna Soup for my lunch…

You can adjust as you like to suit your tastes. If you want a sodium free version, leave out the salt. I buy the ingredients from my international market or bulk bins and can make 2 huge containers for far less than one bottle of Trader Joe’s or similar.

โ–ช๏ธ Minced Dried Onion

Original quantities can be found here:

I often will add things like Caraway or Cumin Seeds or if I am down to a little seasoning in the bottom of a bottle – I’ll add that in.

๐Ÿฅƒ RAMEN BROTHS |๐Ÿฅš RAMEN TEA EGGS | ๐Ÿฅฃ 2 EPIC FOOD FAILS

DAILY RECAP – 10/02
I started the day with the intention of doing lots of #experimentsineating – you know I love my Noodle Bowls but often the seasoning packs are either too spicy ๐Ÿ”ฅ or not a flavor I was looking for. So I decided to try making my own broths to use in Noodle bowls.

I also found a Tea Egg spice pack I had ordered at some point and decided to try making Ramen Tea Eggs…

๐Ÿ’ฅ EPIC FAILS ๐Ÿ’ฅ
HERICIUM BEAUTY ISINGLASS SOUP
I bought this “soup” – which was a mix of dried ingredients, that for many of them, I had no clue what they were.

Yeah… Hard NO! Oh, so much no… Full details in the video but suffice to say it may have been the single most revolting experiment I’ve ever tried. ๐Ÿคฎ

I messaged my cousin to see if she wanted me to keep it for her ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฟ

PURPLE RICE PUDDING BOWL
Blow by blow in the video but the short version is this. I was cooking, cooking, cooking – having a fun #experimentsineating day. Got one of the Ramen Broths started and decided to have breakfast.

Used a new food colorant (Ube / Purple Sweet Potato) – 3 drops in the rice pudding… Pretty pretty!

Ate 2 tbsps…

๐Ÿ’ฃ Had an immediate and very big reaction – my eyes swelled, my tongue went numb, I lost feeling in my fingers, burning in my feet… It was very fast and lasted about 6 hours.

I laid down for several hours and then finished up the second broth but definitely did not feel like eating.

Several days a week, I cook meals for a neighbor who has limited mobility.

We often share a meal kit or something similar and spend some time together since neither of us go out too much ๐Ÿ˜

Today is one of her days. I’m enjoying having someone to cook for again.

This week I am also cooking additional servings for my favorite cousins โค๏ธ
