Starters | Serial Killer

“Now, is there really a need for all that screaming?” 

“You’re a smart one, aren’t you? Tell me, how much blood can a human lose before dying?” 

“This is one of my favorites, do you know what it does? Why, I’ll demonstrate.” 

“You can’t get away from me, you’ll never get away from me!” 

“Go on, I love a good chase! It gets the heart racing!” 

“I must say, you put up a good fight. Some of this blood is mine!” 

“Oh, don’t cry. You’ll be so beautiful, soon. I’ll immortalize you in my collection.” 

“Which limb would you like to lose first?” 

“You’re so fucking smug, you deserve a death that’s fitting.” 

“I finally caught you, isn’t it exciting? You’ve evaded me for longer than anyone else!” 

“I love you, how else was I going to keep you? No one else can have you!” 

“I like stringing my prizes up. You do look so helpless, like that.” 

“Ssh, just breathe. The rope isn’t even tight, yet!” 

“You really are as twisted as I am. Aren’t we a perfect match?” 

“You look best in red.” 

“Did you think you could outsmart me? My dear, I’ve been doing this for a long time.” 

“You young ones always squirm so much!” 

“I don’t tolerate escape attempts. I will break your legs.” 

“I’ve been watching you for a long time…you’ve made me wait. But, it was worth it.” 

“Go on, then! What’s your plan? Bargaining, begging, threatening? Maybe try to psychoanalyze me?”

Cherry Tomato Bisque 

Wow! It’s been so long since I’ve posted a recipe. I won’t have any trips for awhile so meal prepping is back in session!

Today’s recipe is for the soup pictured. The tofu salad is ultra old news. Trust me on it, but this will not taste like a fruit salad. The cherries provide a sweetness that helps balance the astringency of the tomatoes while giving it just the slightest sweet aftertaste. That sweetness is then tempered by the most subtle smokiness from a bit of paprika. This is a soup that’s really nice to roll around in the mouth because there’s actually a surprising amount of depth to this. Also? There are a million micro nutrients in it, so that’s always fun! I may as well call it “Multivitamin Bisque.”

  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ large yellow onion, diced
  • 2 small carrots, peeled and diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • small (tiny) potato, cut into chunks
  • 1 TBSP paprika 
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 oz Merlot, or another red cooking wine
  • 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes (preferably no salt added)
  • 2 TBSP tomato paste (preferably no salt added)
  • 32 oz container of vegetable stock (preferably no salt added or low sodium if that’s all you can find)
  • 100 g sweet red cherries (fresh or frozen, we’re almost out of season)
  • 1 TBSP pomegranate molasses (I had it on hand, a dash of sugar is more than fine)
  • Optional: This week’s contestant on “hide the spinach,” add a handful of spinach! 
  • Optional: Sliced grape tomatoes or a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk (or half & half if you’re all about that)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk)

Directions: In a large pot, heat the oil over high heat and saute the onion and garlic until soft and translucent. Add the carrots and the potato and allow them to do the same. The starch from the potato will act as a thickener once blended so that we don’t need to make a roux. Good trick, by the way! Add a dash of salt, stir. Add some black pepper and the paprika and allow the heat to warm it and make it fragrant. Blast it with the wine and then stir. Let that simmer for a few minutes so the alcohol can start cooking off. Next, add the crushed tomatoes, the stock, the tomato paste, the cherries, whatever sweetener you had on hand, and the majority of the salt you planned on using. Stir. Then, chuck the bay leaf in. Let it come to a small boil and then back the heat to low and allow it to simmer. Leave it uncovered so it will reduce a bit. 

About 15-20 minutes later, if you’re doing the optional “hide the spinach” remove the bay leaf, set it aside, and add a handful of spinach but not so much that you get a really funny color (green and red are complimentary colors so too much and the soup gets a bit grey). Let that continue simmering until that wilts. Once wilted, use an immersion blender to blend everything smooth. Add in the coconut milk and almond milk, stir, and put the bay leaf back in. If you like some texture in a soup like this, add a can of drained diced tomatoes (preferably no salt added) or some slivered fresh tomatoes. Let it simmer for another 15 minutes, covered. Remove the bay leaf and adjust any seasoning if desired.

Serves 10-12.

Hey So

What happened recently in the rpc is really fucking tragic you guys. There’s no real words for the violation and offense people of color in this community are feeling thanks to that blog. Let’s be completely honest here, the rpc on tumblr is very white washed and white run. Racism is very present in the community and people of color rarely have the means to find and interact with each other easily. The chance to have a poc place where we could support and be positive towards each other is invaluable and very much needed! It’s disgusting that this want was exploited by a white person to prove a backwards (and racist) point of view. 

This white foolishness doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still have a place, a real and genuine place for positivity ran by the poc community for the poc community. So I created this blog in hopes of creating such a place! I’d love to get this started, and I’d love for others to join me. 

This blog is officially active! If you feel suspicious message me, check the about page. I promise I’m 100% authentic
