survival & gastronomiรฉ: the usual…


yah, the same thing again (salmon & quinoa w/scallions).  But you know, something like 87% of all Venezuelans are in the throes of a major food and political crisis, so I’m counting my blessings a million times over.

    1. it’s not hard at all! enough coconut and olive oil so the fish doesn’t stick to the pan, and I just take out samples as I go, adding ingredients according to what flavors I’m more in the mood for. salt and honey are self explanatory; the only addition some would consider unusual is that I often add cinnamon (which, with the honey [or sugar if you prefer] reminds me of the cinnamon sugar pita chips I get from Trader Joe’s.) My advice is to use more coconut oil than olive, it makes a wonderful sauce. and a few dashes of sesame oil for that extra… something. ๐Ÿ™‚

      low heat and ideally in a covered pot, should take no more than half an hour ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. I take my time with it, so it takes about an hour from raw ingredients to dish. fish is really dead simple to make in general; you could get away with lemon (to clean/marinate), salt and pepper if you’re in a rush! It’s just that first time that seems scary, hehe. ๐Ÿ˜ See the recent response I made to “survivednarc’s” comment in this post thread for more specifics, and let me know if you gave it a try as well. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      2. hope u hydrated for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

        me? i’m okay, headed outside to walk in the park for a bit. my lungs could use a workout, I guess…

        …well, maybe I’ve been feeling a little anxious. blood relatives on the mind, unnecessary drama that I need to distract myself from. should be better by the end of the day. ๐Ÿ˜Š

        Haven’t played ‘Dance Dance Revolution’/’Stepmania’ for some weeks now, so will work on downloading some mixes by the conclusion of the weekend. (That seemed to consistently help my mood in times past, used to frequent the arcade a lot during high school and my earlier adult years. ) ๐Ÿ˜

      3. I can boil it down to a Nietzschean aphorism: ‘He who sympathizes with the likes of Terrence McKenna is possessed by Lucifer himself ~ the teachings of a people still unaware of the existence of 4chan and reddit, unaware that they are a grain in the sand of popular culture.’

        It’s tragic, really. I’m just living my life while they make a big deal about my philosophy of living, a way of life that makes me a far happier than the one they’re trying to push on me of Caribbean Christianityโ„ข. I just leave them alone, go home and roll another one up, lmao

        another one

        and another one…

      4. ehh, idk. zen anime? ยฏยฐ_o)/ยฏ

        carib. christianity – church is a family thing, really conservative values about sex, drugs & rock n’ roll. (Fun fact: The vast majority are probably unaware that Guilty Gear Xrd is a ‘thing.’ Or PS4s.

        … or the internet? lol. I couldn’t walk in without someone crying ‘demon possession’. Meanwhile, the drummer’s favorite TV show is ‘Lucifer.’ lol.


      5. nope. I’m not the marrying type, seems pointless. She has issues with my philosophy of living as well ( and more specifically, what kind of influence I would be on my daughter), and so our methods of communication are somewhat… limited. Went through the whole family court thing in which I had to give up legal custody. Things have been relatively peaceful since, but..
        well, you can never please some people, I guess. The universe made us really different, and all I really care about is my daughter’s happiness. that’s it. After that, I’m not compromising my happiness for religious dogma.
