cooking ahead

anonymous asked:

When you post 'his' and 'hers' photos, are those from the same meal? Isn't it a lot of work to prepare different choices?

Hi friend 😊 The photos are not always from the same evening’s meal, although often they are. The way I cook is to prepare ahead a variety of main dishes (and often portions of rice, pasta, grains etc as well) at the weekend and put some portions of those in the fridge and some in the freezer. I do the same every weekend, so the freezer is always stocked with quite a variety of meals in individual portions. Some of those dishes are suited to my tastes and some of them to The Lovely Husband’s. I label them all carefully so I don’t get ‘freezer amnesia’, obviously!

During the week we both work full time so by cooking the main components of our meals at the weekend, I can get homemade meals on the table each night with very little time and effort required. Basically, homemade ‘ready meals’! It means that although he and I always eat together, we often have different things on our plates. I have a dairy allergy and avoid various things due to my IBS, and he has his own preferences, so we’d eat different versions of the same meal anyway if we did eat basically the same thing-which we do sometimes do as well. This way, we get to eat the things we like best and it’s no more effort for me to put two different meals on our plates each evening; both are pre-prepared anyway 👍I don’t personally find it any more effort.

Thanks for your question lovely person- have a great evening! 💕

“What?” You raised one of your eyebrows at him. He had been giving you that weird look for the whole evening now. “If you want to criticize my cooking skills, just go ahead,” you laughed, knowing too well that you sucked at cooking.
But you wanted to surprise him with a nice dinner, since he probably hasn’t had a proper meal, ever since he started to work on his new album. He was usually the one planning surprises for you, so this time you wanted to be the one to spoil him. You even asked his mom for the receipt of his favorite dish that wasn’t too hard to make. But he arrived at your apartment way too early, you barely even began cooking.

“No, you’re doing great,” he shook his head as a grin appeared on his lips. “If it was up to me, I’d put in the meat first, but whatever works for you,” he added making you roll your eyes. You knew he was only teasing you. The cheeky smile on his face didn’t match the seriousness in his voice. But Dean was actually a great cook. He could just throw all the leftovers in your fridge into the pan and it would taste great.

“You’re making me nervous, stop staring at me,” you mumbled under your breath as you added the other ingredients into the pot. But he didn’t stop. His eyes followed every of your movements and he just sat there, staring at you silently.

“It’s getting creepy Hyuk!” You whined and tired to chase him out of the kitchen, but he only laughed at you.

“God, I love you,” he blurted out gaining a confused look from you.

What recipes can I make in only a pot or pan with inexpensive ingredients? (Btw I love your blog)

Hey Anon! 
Thank you for the kind words :D

For inexpensive staples you should look into stocking:

Rice - one big bag can last usually 2 or more months but its worth the investment
Sugar - one bag can last a while
Beans - I’m looking at dried as they’re less expensive than canned, but you can buy a small bag a week if you want.
Vinegar - For most recipes I’d recommend Red wine or Apple Cider vinegar, but white can work as well. A large bottle isn’t too pricey and will last a while.


Inexpensive ingredients can range, but my usual go-to when I’m budgeting my meals more are these:
Lentils (dried is less expensive then cans)
Another type of beans (chickpea, Kidney, Black-eyed)
Cooking Onion (you can usually buy a bag for $2 and they last a month)
Garlic
Tomato
Mushrooms
Cabbage
Carrots
Soy sauce and or hot sauce

———————————————————————————————————–

Using these ingredients you can make a few different recipes.

These are my own, and based on what I’ve made in the past. I don’t now your access to spices, and spices can be quite expensive so I’ll leave them as optional, however flavour will be better with spices.

Vegetable Stock
Veggie stock is super easy to make, and requires your veggie scraps, a pot and a freezer. For me, it saved me about $3 a week. Although seeming like a small amount, that’s ~$156 a year.

As you cook more, you can cut off the ends of the veggies (such as the tops of carrots, the ends of broccoli or mushrooms, the skins of garlic or onion). Rather than throwing them out, you can store these ends in a bag or container and collect them in the freezer. when your container is full, put them in a pot and cover with water. Add any herbs (oregano, Thyme, Bay) and salt and pepper to taste. Bring your pot to the boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 25-35 minutes. 
Once done, drain the broth into a bowl, you can just try to pour it carefully or if you have a strainer to use, drain it through the strainer. Discard the boiled veggie scraps.
You can store the broth in the fridge for up to 4 days or the freezer for up to 5 months. 

Lentil Cabbage Soup
If you have been collecting veggie scraps or have some homemade veggie stock available to you you can easily make this dish. Its a quick, light meal that you can also add cooked rice to if you desire.

½ cup sliced Cabbage
1/3 cup lentils (or another bean) - pre-cooked
1 clove minced Garlic
Pepper and salt to taste
2 cups Vegetable stock
1 tsp soy sauce or hot sauce
½ cup cooked rice (optional)*

Bring your veggie stock to a boil with the pepper and garlic. Mix in the hot sauce or soy sauce. Taste and add salt to your preference. Add the lentils and if using rice, spoon the rice out into a bowl. Add your cabbage to the soup and cook for 1-2 minutes. 
Once the cabbage is cooked, pour into the bowl over rice(if using) and enjoy!

*You can use rice, pasta or quinoa for this recipe


Red beans and rice
Assuming you have invested in a large bag of rice to use for the month, this is a great protein packed starch to have along side veggies.

1 Cup rice 
1 ¾ cups water 
½ cup red beans or lentils
½ cup chopped tomato
Salt to taste

If using white rice and pre-cooked lentils/beans, add the rice and tomato to a pan with your salt. Add 1 ¾ cups of water and bring to the boil. once at the boil, reduce to medium heat and cook for 15-18 minutes. At the 13 - 15 minute mark, add your beans/lentils and continue cooking. Once the water has boiled away, fluff your rice.

If using brown rice pre-cooked lentils/beans, add the rice and tomato to a pan with your salt. Add 2 ½ cups of water and bring to the boil. reduce to medium heat and cook for 25 - 30 minutes. At the 23 - 25 minute mark, add your beans/lentils and continue cooking. Once the water has boiled away, fluff your rice.

You can also add Mexican chili spice or paprika to the rice to add flavour.


Cabbage Rolls
This recipe will use most of the ingredients listed above, and can be used to make lunches or dinners for a while. The lentil filling will last in the fridge for half a week to 5 days.

Cabbage - take off the leaves and use the largest outside leaves for this recipe
1 ½ Cup Lentils (cooked)
1 medium Tomato diced (or ½ large tomato)
2-3 Sliced Mushroom
½ diced Onion
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 tsp soy sauce or hot sauce (different flavour depending on what you add)
1 cup water
Pepper and Salt to Taste
Recommended but not required - 1 tsp Mexican chili spice,  1/2 tsp ginger or ginger powder

Bring a pot of water to a boil, in this pot you will be blanching the cabbage leaves. This will help wrap the filling in the cabbage leaves without the rolls coming undone or being too bitter. Submerge a few leaves at a time and cook for 1 to 3 minutes. 
Set the cabbage leaves aside and begin working on the filling.

For the filling
Have the lentils cooked ahead of time or use a 400ml can of lentils for this. 
In your pan, add a few TBS of water or vegetable stock instead of oil to cook your Onion and mushroom. Add the onion and mushroom to the pan and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the garlic and any spices you’re using excluding Salt. This includes soy sauce or hot sauce(I’d recommend Sriracha). 
Add your tomato and ½ the extra water. After 7-10 minutes add the Lentils. If your pot is drying out, add more water to the pot as you cook. Since you’re not using oil, the risk of your dish sticking is higher so you want to keep a layer of water/sauce in the pot while cooking.
Cook for 10 -13 minutes, and keep adding water up to the 8 minute mark. Once the filling starts looking like a saucy ‘meat like’ filling you can take it off the heat. 

Spoon your filling into you cabbage leaves and roll them up. You can store the filling on its own and make up blanched leaves or store the full rolls for almost a week.

Cole Slaw
This is a simple oil and vinegar dressed coleslaw, 

1 cup Cabbage - Cut into thin strips
½ cup Carrot - cut into thin strips 

¼ cup vinegar
1tsp sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 clove diced Garlic
Optional (but reccomended) 2TBS Olive or peanut oil


Prepare the dressing first, using the Vinegar, Salt, pepper, sugar, garlic and Oil. (note: The oil makes this recipe more palatable, but its not required. This dressing is to wilt down the cabbage and carrot and add some acid to the recipe).
Cut up your carrot, and cabbage. Add to a bowl with your vinegar dressing and let rest for 15-20 minutes or until the cabbage wilts. This can be stored for 1 - 1 ½ week.

Lentil Slaw
This is a little off the beaten path, but a nice no-cook meal like the cole slaw above.

1 cup Cabbage - Cut into thin strips 
½ cup Carrot - cut into thin strips
½ cup lentils (cooked)
Optional -  1/2 cup Diced Tomato

¼ cup vinegar 
1tsp sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
1 clove diced Garlic
Optional (but reccomended) 2TBS Olive or peanut oil

Prepare the dressing first, using the Vinegar, Salt, pepper, sugar, garlic and Oil. (note: The oil makes this recipe more palatable, but its not required. This dressing is to wilt down the cabbage and carrot and add some acid to the recipe).
I highly recommend Apple Cider vinegar or Red Wine vinegar for this recipe but you can use white vinegar. 

Cut up your carrot, and cabbage. Add to a bowl with your vinegar dressing and let rest for 15-20 minutes. Prepare your lentils and diced tomato (if using). You can add an extra bulb of garlic to your lentil mix if wanted.

Once the Cabbage is wilted, mix in your lentils (and tomato if using). Once mixed you can serve.


———————————————————————————————————–
One little note - Most of these recipes I do by sight, so I’ve never written them out until now. The ratios may need a little tweaking when you make them so taste as you go. I tend to eat low salt, low sugar so my taste is very different from the average westerner.

I hope these helped, and isn’t just a wall of text - Good luck!

Accidentally Delicious MACARONI

Buckle up, kids, because I’m about to lay out the good cheesy content. It’s got everything your lactose-intolerant heart desires (that’s right, boys, take it to the bank: this one’s for all you can’t-eat-dairy folks out there. And the rest of you, too.)

*The recipe below contains approximations of measure, seeing as I didn’t measure zip.shit while actually cooking up this bad boy. If it’s got a * next to it, it means I’m guesstimating– and for this bad boy, guesstimating is probably good enough.

End of Semester Tips

1) Now isn’t the time to cut back on caffeine, but make sure you are able to get good sleep. Magnesium is your friend.

2) Eat healthy fats to sustain your energy. Cook meals ahead of time so that you’re fueled properly. A salmon fillet takes ten minutes to prepare. Salads take like zero time.

3) Don’t form a study group, you’ll just end up complaining to each other for three hours before going home to stress out about it. Study alone, study hard.

4) Don’t glamorize stress, find ways to manage it. Meditate, practice mindfulness, end your night with a cup of tea instead of a bag of chips, and plan your days down to the hour if you need to.

5) Ask family and friends to give you grace. Tell them you won’t be available. Carve out time for yourself and not for others. This time is for you.

           Sam paced his room trying to figure out why you weren’t answering him. “Dammit Y/N, answer your fucking phone! We need to talk!” Sam yelled as he left you another message. Gabe came into his room after hearing him yell, “Hey, what’s going on Sam?” he asked stopping him. “I can’t get ahold of Y/N, she won’t answer her phone,” Sam sighed sitting down in his desk chair. “Well she called in sick this morning,” Gabe told him as he stood in front of his desk. “What?” Sam looked up at him confused.

           Gabe nodded “She didn’t sound real good on the phone. Everything going okay?” he asked staring at him. Sam sighed running his hands through his hair before he stood up. “Gabe, I have to take the rest of the day off. I’ll see you tomorrow.” He said gathering the rest of his stuff. Gabe sighed watching him leave as kids began to walk in. “Class has been cancelled for today, go home.” Gabe told the kids as he left. He had a bad feeling in the bottom of his stomach. Something was wrong, he just didn’t know how to ask.

“I don’t want to go out for dinner, can’t we just order takeout?” I whined as I felt the warm air surround me. This was way better than the parking lot here.

“Stop nagging, Sasuke, it is good to be outside the house now and again” Shisui said as he sat down.

“In Sasuke’s defence, he did warn us that he was going to complain the entire way” Izuna said as he took his jacket off. I glared at Izuna from the corner of my eyes before rolling them. It was unfair how Izuna managed to look good every day of the week.

“I heard this place has great pasta” Shisui said as he looked over the menu.

“Like pasta is so hard to make yourself” I muttered.

“Why don’t you go ahead and cook?” Shisui put the menu down.

“Last time I made something edible, Madara threw it in the trash” I reminded him as I finally took my coat off.  

“Hey, is that Naruto?” Izuna bumped my arm with his elbow. I looked up at the bar, seeing Naruto sat there, talking to some guy.

“Yes, that is him” I said.

“Why don’t we go say hello?!” Izuna leaned towards me, “See if he gets us something to drink”

“He is not even allowed to drink” I noted.

“Well, that gin and tonic in his hand says something else” Izuna pointed out before getting up. I guess if he felt obligated to go to the bar, so should I.

“Would you like anything, Shi?” Izuna asked, but Shisui shook his head.

“Hey, cutie!” Izuna shouted across the restaurant and if my eyes had the ability to set people on fire…Izuna would have been in flames by now.

“Hey Zuna! Sasuke!” Naruto waved at us, putting his glass down.

“Owh, right! It has been a while! How have you been?” I would have expected Izuna to just give a handshake like normal people, maybe a small nod, but instead of that he hugged Naruto tightly.

“Aaah, let’s talk about…anything else but my crappy days” Naruto looked at me with a small smile.

“Naru, aren’t you going to introduce us to them?” The guy next to him asked, looking at Izuna while I legit got ignored.

“You are not important enough to introduce” Naruto joked.

“I am sure this beauty is worthy of knowing his name” The guy said.

“Aw, you are flattering me, the name is Izuna” Zuzu said, “And this is my little, cute, moody, brother, Sasuke”  

“Eh, isn’t that like…uhm…the Samurai from the cigarette ad back in the 80’s?” The guy said as he snapped his fingers like he won a game of charades.

“Yes, that the Samurai from the famous stories, he really existed…” It seemed the guy was an uncultured swine, “The famous novels…movies…it must’ve been mentioned in your primary history book…no?…nothing?…really?” I rolled my eyes. He was stupid as fuck.

“Remember that famous book about the guy with the sword on the horse, wandering around the world?” Naruto asked and the guy nodded.

“Oooaah that one!” He exclaimed, nodding too eagerly, “Hey, if you two have nothing to do tonight, maybe you would like to hang out with us?” It seemed ‘two’ turned into ‘one’ since the guy was looking at Izuna as if he was the only person in the entire restaurant.

“Nah, I am already meeting with some friends”

“Maybe I could tag along with you?” The guy offered, but Naruto punched his arm. “What about you?” He asked and suddenly it seemed I existed again.

“No, Sasuke isn’t into that kind of stuff you do”

“Me? Thought we were a team here, Uzumaki” The guy said, punching Naruto’s shoulder.

“Right! He isn’t into the stuff we are in, better?”

“Pfff, acting like you grew up, but you are the same piece of trash as you have always been, Naru” The guy joked, “Are you just gonna let that blond idiot call you a buzzkill?”

“Don’t challenge him, Sasuke, really, this fucker only causes trouble”

“That blondie takes you straight to jail, I swear” The guy suddenly remained quiet as it appeared if he was thinking deeply “Or to bed, it is either jail or bed, there is no inbetween”

“I am not!” Naruto seems slightly embarrassed as he tried punching the guy with some weak ass punch, the guy easily dodged.

“Oh right, there is also the backseat of the car and the toilet stalls” He laughed. I saw Naruto’s cheek turn slightly red, but for all I knew it was the alcohol.

“Well, seems like you two know each other pretty well” Izuna grabbed the drink he ordered from the bartender, handing me the bottle of coke.

“Speak to ya soon” Izuna said as he walked back towards our table.

“Owh, he doesn’t even drink, you are right, Naruto, he ain’t no fun” The guy said, patting Naruto’s shoulder. I opened my mouth to say something, but I decided it wasn’t worth it after all.

“I guess I will see you at school” I stated as I turned around to head back towards our table.

“So what is the deal with that guy? You wanna bang him or what?”

“No! Shut up!” I heard Naruto say with an anxious tone in his voice.

“Why are you even being nice to such a weirdo?”

“Do you have any idea how scary he can be? I saw him take down four adults…not to mention he has one brother that…is worst than my mother”

“Hey, Sasuke” Itachi opened the door to my room, naturally he never knocks when it comes to my room. I stood there in my boxer shorts, holding a tube of lotion.

“What is it?” I asked, putting the lotion down. Don’t get the wrong ideas, I just got out of the shower.

“I am going to bed, don’t stay up too late, alright?” Itachi said as he walked towards me and placed a kiss on my forehead. I gave him a rather pathetic smile.

“Right” I said seeing Itachi leave the door open behind him. Why does he always do this to me? I put my shirt on before grabbing some sweat pants. I headed downstairs to watch a movie before heading to bed. I grabbed a bag of crisps from the kitchen and opened it, almost getting a heart attacking seeing Naruto standing in front of the window, waving while having his usual innocent smile on his face. He pointed at the direction of the door and I rolled my eyes putting the crisps on the table before opening the door.

“It is midnight, why are you even here?” I asked, examining him from top to bottom. He didn’t seem drunk.

“Say do you always leave the curtains of your room open?” He asked. I narrowed my eyes and looked at him confused. His face was red, probably from the cold, I guess I should invite him in. It seemed like the right thing to do.

I opened the door wider.

“Ah, actually I am here to apologise, I realised that what I said didn’t sound so nice”

“It sounded like you find me a buzzkill, but….it is not like it bothers me”  Well, that was a lie. I have been thinking of it every 10 seconds to the minute.

“It’s actually really cool how you aren’t bothered by little things, I admire that, oh, quick side note, the light to your room is on”

“It is?” I took a step outside. It was almost amazing how I could even see the books and lotion on my desk from here.

“You want to…come in?” I asked.

“No, it is fine, I am going…well…yeah…I am going”

“You can’t possibly have come all this way to just talk” I frowned.

“Actually…I got a lot more than talk” He has this stupid grin on his face before rubbing his neck, looking awkwardly away. “Actually, I stopped by on my way to the casino”

“Ah, right” I muttered.

“See, I would’ve invited you to come with me, but…I just don’t think you would like it very much, y’know being an ex-cop and all, dattebayo”

“What has me tagging along with my dad to do with this?”

“Aah…how do I say this? Sometimes we do stupid things and…well, you are not stupid”

“It really depends on the definition of stupid” I said.

“Well…it is not like you would-” Naruto looked around him, “Steal a car, I don’t know” He said pointing at Itachi’s car.

“True…I wouldn’t…” I said and reached for the drawer, “Because I would be borrowing the car” I said, spinning the keys around my fingers. I saw Naruto’s expression turn to an amused one .

“The little princess of the Uchiha family is actually a bad boy” Naruto joked as he looked at the keys. “Who’s car is it anyway?” Naruto asked. He looked very tempted, as if he was holding back.

“Itachi-nii’s”

“Let’s get going then” He said as his eyes suddenly started to sparkle. I quickly put my sneakers on and grabbed my coat.

“Let’s get going then” I threw the keys towards him and he caught it with both hands, almost dropping them, but he managed to hold it. I closed the door behind me. He gave me one last look to be absolutely sure if this wasn’t some trick or test.

“What are you waiting for? You aren’t a buzzkill, are you?” I cocked my head a little, seeing a smirk appear on his face.

“Like hell I am”


Oxoxox

“Dude, dude, you have all the space to parallel park here, what the hell are you driving up and down for?” I looked at the mirror to the back.

“It is really more of an art-”

“Art?!” My tone couldn’t be more ironic. Naruto suddenly hit the break and I turned my head towards him.

“Alright, I don’t have my licence, so, if you can do a better job at it then I would be happy to let you take the wheel” He sounded annoyed, but in his defence, I was giving him shit about his parking skills so far.

“Hey, my daddy wasn’t around to teach me”

“Boo fucking ho, my mom taught me-”

“Well…I don’t have a mother either” I interrupted him.

“You are making it sound like an argument, dattebayo” He had another shot, and even though the car stood partly on the pavement. I guess it was the best that could do.

“Don’t I get, like, a kiss for this great achievement?!” Naruto slammed the door behind him. I got out of the car.

“Is it really an achievement?” I asked him.

“It can count as one” Naruto walked towards me, “In my defence, my mother’s car is smaller” He wrapped his arm around me.

“Hey, so what will you do if they ask for identification?” I asked as we approached the door, I could see two guys standing there in black.

“You are gonna use those beautiful, blue eyes” I frowned.

“I don’t have blue-” I stopped talking when I saw Naruto smile.

“They won’t ask you”

“What makes you so sure?” I wasn’t so engaged in the conversation that we were already walking inside.

“Hey, Naruto” Both said and gave him a nod.

“Because I am here” Naruto said and I had to admit…that was pretty cool and yet there were so many questions appearing in my head.

“If it ain’t our fox!” I could see the guy from the restaurant and I wasn’t surprised seeing him with beer.

“You remember Sasuke” Naruto indicated to me and I didn’t say anything. I don’t give two shits about that dude.

“Nice meeting you” The girl said and winked at me.

“Hey, hey~” The guy almost screamed, he was probably tipsy. He grabbed twenty bucks from his wallet and put it on the table before grabbing the empty beer bottle and putting it upside down the twenty bucks, “Whoever managed to get the money from under the bottle, without touching the bottle, gets the keep the money”

“That doesn’t seem that hard” The girl said.

“I tried it, it is impossible”  Naruto added.

“That is what you said when you tried to put together an Ikea desk chair” I said. The girl leaned in pulled the money away, but the bottle fell. “Damn it, it harder than it looks” She commented.

“Let me try” Naruto asked when the girl put the bottle upside down on the money.

“It can’t be done” The guy said, leaning back in the chair.

“Can I try?” I leaned in the table.

“It can’t be done” The guy repeated, “But if you can do it, go ahead, if it works I’ll buy you beer”

“I am more of a scotch guy”

“I ain’t going to buy you any overpriced scotch, you prick” The guy said.

I looked at the bottle and suddenly I had this moment…this…epiphany. I leaned in the tabled and started rolling up the money, making me able to get the twenty from under the bottle without dropping it.

“Somebody is getting me a beer” I said, holding the twenty. There was a moment of silence at the bat table.

“Here, get yourself a snack” I leaned over the table and put the twenty in the guy’s shirt as if he was a stripper.

“I feel…pretty dumb…” The guy groaned and tried to catch the attention of the bar tender.

“New challenge!” The girl said, grabbing the guy’s empty beer bottle and a card from the table, she put the card on one bottle before putting the other upside down on the first one. “Remove the card without making the bottle fall”

I extended my hand, my first instinct was to pull, but I couldn’t reach so I just flicked my fingers and the card flew on the table.

“You owe me a beer” I said, seeing the girl and Naruto both look at the card with their mouths open.

“New challenge!” Naruto grabbing a nickel from his pocket. “Put the card on the glass and balance the coin on it”

“If I do it…I want scotch this time” I said grabbing the beer from the guy taking a sip.

“Two?” The guy asked, as he looked at girl, putting the second beer on the table.

“There is no way you can balance a coin on card…on a glass…” The guy frowned slightly. I wasn’t good in physics, but…I knew that was impossible. I leaned back and looked at the card and coin, taking another sip before looking at the beer. I poured the beer in the glass, filling it up all the way to the top. I put the card on it so half of it was on the liquid. I then put the coin on the other side of the card and I swear I never knew I would ever in my life use school knowledge outside of school…but here I was.

“I am so done, doonneee~” Naruto didn’t believe his eyes, it is like he saw a brand new colour he had never seen before. “Done!” He shouted walking away. I chuckled.

“Fuck me, that is smart!” I heard somebody suddenly shout behind me.

“New challenge!” Some random person walked up to me; and so the evening which was supposed to be spent with my bae was filled with challenges involving mostly beer bottles and every challenge was rewarded with another alcoholic beverage and at a certain point…I wasn’t sure what I was doing anymore, but everything I heard “OOOOOOHHHH” I knew I would get another drink.

“Last challenge!” Some person shouted.

“I think I drank enough” I couldn’t count the bottles in front of me anymore. I was seeing double so I poked my own eyes to see if my lenses were still in my eyes or not.

“I bet you fifty bucks!”

“Fuck yeah!” I was pretty eager trying to get up that I almost fell backwards if it weren’t for Naruto grabbing my arms.

“Dude, I was gone for thirty minutes, dattebayo!” His voice was so loud, it almost appeared to me he was scolding me.

“Who that?” I wasn’t indicating to Naruto, but to the chick standing next to him. So, that is where he went? Was…he banging the chick in the bathroom? Who needs thirty entire minutes for that?! Wait, has it been thirty minutes? No, it has been one and a half hour! Was this some new youth slang I haven’t come across on the internet?

“What the hell?! Did you drink all of that?! You were the same guy that got drunk from two light beers!” Naruto suddenly tightened his grip around my arms, “Stop trying to climb over me” Oh right…I was trying to win another bet.

“I am providing for our kids!” I shouted, pulling myself away from him.

“I am sure they aren’t very happy with you being drunk off your ass, dattebayo!”

“Are we having this fight again!?” I grabbed Naruto’s collar, “Fight me, mate!” His eyes widened in surprise and I smiled leaning my head on his shoulder. “Fucking asshole…” I muttered before kissing his cheek. “Whatever you did in the bathroom, I can do it twice as good”

“What?!” Naruto pulled me away, “Did you guys gave him any drugs?”

“Stop being a buzzkill” I pushed him, so he was forced to take a step back. I needed a few seconds to get my head to stop spinning. I almost tripped forwards, but I regained my balance. I cupped Naruto’s cheek.

“Why don’t you go and wait in the backseat of the car? Be pretty and I will be there to do you in like five minutes, alright? Daddy is slaying these bets right now” I heard some whistling in the back. I was grabbing some cash that I won and put it in his shirt, “Buy yourself something pre-” I yelped and it took longer than I am proud of to realise Naruto threw me over his shoulder.  

“Baby, no! I wanna make more money, we can fuck later! Why are you so eager?! This is making me nauseous, Narutoooo!” I gave up and just hung there while he walked towards the car.

“I am so disappointed in you, dattebayo!” Naruto finally let me go. He opened the car door and I looked at the car door before looking at him.

“So…your place, my place, motel?” I asked.

“Step in!” He hissed. I didn’t realise how hot he could be when he is being all protective. I smirked and looked ahead of me while he sat down. “Seatbelt” he said, but I folded my arms.

“Are we really going to do this?” Naruto asked.

“Make me, hottie” I dared him. He rolled his eyes before reaching for my seatbelt. I protested. I suddenly get why Naruto could be so annoying from time to time…it was fun.

“Sasuke!” He said with a warning voice after a good 3 minutes of trying. I remained still and he leaned over me and reached for my seatbelt. I suddenly grabbed his face between my hand and leaned into whisper in his ear,“I kinda like how you say my name so pissed off”

“Then you are going to love the drive home” Naruto pulled away.

“Buzzkill” I whispered. I allowed him the fasten the seatbelt. I turned my head to him trying to find the keys.

“Naruto” I repeated his name several times, but he only reacted annoyed after 5 good minutes. “Wanna fuck?”

“Not when there is chance of you puking on me” He answered.

“I won’t!” I immediately said, “I am like…a very…very good boy” I pouted and I saw him look at me from the corner of his eye.

“No, you are not” Naruto said, “I took my eyes off you once and you got wasted”

“In that case, I am a very bad boy” I whispered and he laughed. I frowned before taking the seatbelt off.

“Oi!” Naruto sounded frustrated. I crawled to the back seat.

“What? Did I piss you off?” I smirked, “Maybe I need to get punished”

“I knew you were a horny drunk, but…where is the are the kinks coming from?”

“You know I have parent issues” I was struggling taking my pants off.

“Sasuke, what are you doing?” Naruto shook his head, looking at me through the mirror.

“I am getting naked” I stated.

“Why?”

“Because…fuck?” He closed his eyes and shook his head.

“At least during Halloween you were making an effort, trying to make it sexy-” He stopped talking the moment he opened his eyes and turned his head towards me, “So those clothes were off fast, dattebayo!”

“Wanna take my boxer briefs off with your teeth?” I winked.

“Is that even a ques-” He suddenly shook his head and turned his head away from me, “Sasuke, wear your clothes you are going to catch a cold!”

“Heat me up then!” I opened my arms like he was about to come here and hug me anytime.

“…You are really…” Naruto sighed.

“Want me to sit on your lap? Naruto~” I sat up and pouted not getting a response from him.

“You know what, Sasuke? If you can sit still for twenty minutes while I drive, I am sure I will reward you”

“Rewards me?” I scratched my cheek, but gave in.

“Want me to get busy in the back-”

“NO, SIT STILL AND DO NOTHING!” Naruto shouted. There was definitely something wrong with me because I felt more excited now. He grabbed the keys and a silence emerged in the car “That is, like…uhm…an order” He added.

“I am so horny, Naruto” I sat up and crawled back in the front seat.

“If I give you my jacket, will you wear that?” He asked.

“Baby, if you give me that sweater that will be the only thing I am wearing” I whispered, leaning towards him.

“Take it” He took his jacket off and gave it to me. I put it on and while he was driving off I took the liberty of taking my underwear off.

“Catch”

“Dattebayo!” Apparently the sudden flying pair of boxers on the wheel scared him. I laughed. “No, bad Sasuke! Put it on, or put your pants on, put something on-”

“I said I would wear your jacket” I whispered in his ear, biting his earlobe softly.

“Sasuke, I am driving” He swallowed.

“Stop” I said, kissing his jawline, “Let’s do it in the car” I whispered, my hand on his lap, moving towards his crotch. I could hear a loud siren and I frowned.

“Shit!” Naruto hissed and I sat down, sticking my head out of the window to see a police car while Naruto stopped the car.

“Hey, daddy is home!”

“NO!” Naruto pulled me back in my chair. “Just…behave!” He was way too serious, but I guess if he could see the connections I had he will have to fuck me. The officer tapped on his window and Naruto rolled it down, smiling kindly. That bitch was stealing my man!

“Licence and registration please” The cop said.

“Uhm…Of course” Naruto turned his head to me, giving me some sort of look. Maybe he was trying to tell me something…but I didn’t know what he was trying to say?

“Oooh!” I nodded before looking at Naruto, winked at him before looking at the cop.

“Officer…Officer” I said leaned over Naruto’s lap so I got closer to the officer. I slapped his face, causing him to back off and give me a shocked look. I rolled the window back up. “They see me roolliinnggg~ they’re haatttinnnggg~” I sang hearing Naruto sigh loudly.

“Fucking put me in prison already, dattebayo” He whispered.

“Sir, get out of the car, now!” The office shouted, ramming his fist on the door.

“Sasuke…just work with him” Naruto said.

“Oh no, sweetie” I cupped his cheeks, “You stay here and let me handle this” I pushed the door open and it almost hit the officer.

“Owh damn” The officer looked away, “You are not fully dressed”

“Sir, identification” the cop I slapped walked towards his partner.

“Listen…I know like…your bo-” I felt like I had to burp, but it wasn’t air…I had to vomit. I leaned forward and let it out, not able to hold it in. I heard one officer laugh while the other was cursing. I leaned against the car.

“Okay…I might be drunk” I looked up at the cop. “Fuck me…”

Ooxoxoxo

“A stolen car, driving without licence and underage drinking!” The officer hissed, closing the door behind us.

“And public urination” The other said.

“What?” Naruto looked at me.

“I really needed to go…” I pulled the jacket slightly down, where was my underwear…Oh right…in the car.

“Can we at least get some water or coffee so he can sober up, dattebayo?” Naruto looked at the officer.

“Sleep is the best way to sober up”

“My brother is a lawyer and he said that you can’t strip us from basic human needs, that included toilets and water-”

“Well, the lawyer ain’t here!”

“I know your boss!” I shouted, wrapping my hand around the bars, “And I will file for 204 civilian complain and you will have like a serious long talk in 2 months!”

“How do you know about civilian complain 204?”

“Yo mama told me-”

“Sasuke, enough!” Naruto pulled me away, “We just sit here until we can use the phone, I will call my cousin, he owes me big time, he will bail us out” He pushed me on the couch.

“My butt is cold” I whispered.

“Nobody told you to take your boxer briefs off, dattebayo!” Naruto slightly pulled his hair.

“Kid, I don’t wanna crush your dreams…but we have to notify the car owner”

“That is my brother!” I looked up at the cop, “Fuck…we are gonna die, Naruto” I added. “One time, Madara and I were hungry and we took his car and we accidently dropped the food like…dude…it was everywhere, anyway…no…that was my dad! That was my dad’s car!” I laughed. “And that wasn’t Madara…that was my mom” I gasped dramatically.

“Sasuke, why don’t you go sleep a bit while I try figuring out…what I’m going to tell Itachi”

“He won’t press charges, no worries”I leaned my head on his shoulder, “I make sure he doesn’t because that means he will press charges against me…it was my idea, you did nothing wrong”

“I shouldn’t have called you a buzzkill, dattebayo” I felt Naruto’s hand pat my cheek, “Try to sober up, alright?”

“How did the gays got in jail? I thought it was legal now or something” A woman suddenly spoke up. That was the moment I realised we were not alone.

“We stole his brother’s car, drove around, he got drunk, I tried to bring him home, police came…he slapped the cop…”

“I slapped him and his mother!” I shouted.

“Sssh…” Naruto pressed his finger against my lips.

“And then I peed…I peed against my brother’s car…it is mine now”

“Sasuke, this is not national geographic, dattebayo” Naruto sighed.

“He is moody because we haven’t fucked in the car yet” I whispered. The woman nodded understanding.

“Car sex is the best” She winked.

“What are you in for?” I asked.

“Possession of heroin” She said.

“What?! No, you are the story of your own life, you are a heroine”

“Wrong heroin…Sasuke, dattebayo” Naruto sighed.

“An anti-heroine?” I looked confused at Naruto who shook his head and set back. He opened his arm and I took it and rested my head on his chest. I could feel his hand pull the jacket slightly down.

“What are you in for?” I asked the man next to the woman.

“I sell crack to teens”

“We are teens” I grabbed Naruto’s shirt.

“I guess I am a total asshole now?” The man said and I shook my head.

“No, no!” I let go of Naruto and pointed my finger at the man like I was scolding him.

“Good people do bad things, that doesn’t make them bad people! Am I a bad person?” I asked the four other people in the jail. They remained quiet.

“Exactly! And I…” I looked at Naruto before leaning in and whispering, “I killed a man” I pushed my finger against my lips so they knew it was a secret. “But it doesn’t make me a bad son of a bitch…because my mom wasn’t a bitch, she was a psychopath, totally different things, she was a good mother! But…she did try to kill me” I sighed and sat back, “But fuck that! You are a good man! You go sell that crack to those teens!”

“Sasuke, no!”

“Sasuke, yes! I will buy some from you even!” I shouted and stood up. “We might be lost in society’s eyes, but fuck them! We are awesome! And not fucking buzzkills!”

“I will never ever insult you in my life again knowing this is the result…” Naruto remained quiet before frowning, “You are very bad at sex” He suddenly spoke up.

“Oh, hold up!” I looked at Naruto, “Hoe, you don’t know the half of the shit I am actually willing to do!” I sat back down and lean in to whisper in his ear, “I have like…A very…very wet mouth”

“I know…I kissed you…remember?” Naruto wrapped his arm around me, trying to keep me seated.

“You know what we should do…we should escape-”

“No!” Naruto immediately protested.

“Then we should party in here and show them jail has nothing on us! It is time for an-” I jumped up, “EPIC RAP BATTLE!”

“Sasuke, stop jumping!” Naruto grabbed my arm, pulling me towards him before lowering the jacket.

“Don’t worry, don’t worry” I grabbed his face and kissed him on the lips, “I won’t lose, I am really good! I can take any of you!” I said and started beatboxing.

“Kid is not bad” The man stood up,”What the hell? I have nothing to do anyway” The man said and started rapping.

“Owh Sasuke, you wanna back out?” Naruto asked.

“Bitch, I have watched 8 Miles twice! Gimme a beat!” I pointed at Naruto who chuckled before starting beatboxing.

“You call that a rap?
Bitch, you sounding like a sap;
It ain’t shocking that you’re so slow,
Cause yours lines got no flow;
Your nasty breath and balding head,
No wonder no one goes in your bed;
Who’d fuck a sad little slob?
No hooker is gonna do that job;
You wanna hear the truth right now?
Ya mama is a big fat cow;
Oh? And how do I know?
Cuz I bend her over and give her a show;
Now imma give you some advice,
Consider this me being nice;
Next time you in Konoha?
Don’t mess with the motherfucking Uchiha” I pretended to hold a mic and drop it.

“Oooohh he got you!” The others shouted.

“UCHIHA WAITFORIT SASUKE!”

“There is only one person in the world that called me by my full name” I turned my head to the bars seeing Itachi stand there with Shisui.

“Nailed it, princess!” Shisui said, but Itachi punched his arm causing Shisui to clear his throat, “I am deeply disappointed”

“I knew it, whenever there is trouble, you are involved” Itachi pointed at Naruto.

“I am deeply disappointed” Shisui added. Itachi looked at Shisui.

“You got nothing else?” Itachi asked.

“It is four in the morning…I got nothing…” Shisui sighed.

“Lucky for you two, they paid your bail…and no charges pressed” The officer said. “He slapped me in the face, puked on me shoes and peed on a car” The officer looked at Itachi.

“Uzumaki Naruto, wait till your father hears about this” Shisui said.

“Ohw, that is fine” Naruto said.

“And your mother!” Itachi hissed

“I am going to die” Naruto let his head hang.

“Actually…guys…I am the one who did this” I said, biting my lower lip.

“You reek of alcohol, did he make you drink!?” Itachi quickly wrapped his arms around me, hugging me tightly.

“Actually…I drank and he is…he is sober” I said.

“Where are your clothes?” Shisui took his coat off, wrapping it around me. I hissed.

“Well…they are in Itachi’s car, I..I got warm” I lied. “But Naruto was the one who like…insisted on going home after finding out I had some drinks, so…it was all me” I admitted.

“This isn’t like you at all” Itachi grip tightened around my arm.

“I didn’t want to be a buzzkill” I sighed, “I just wanted some fun” I looked up, putting up a pouting and innocent face.

“You stole my car, got drunk, got naked, slapped an officer, puked on an officer, peed on my car and went to jail…in one night! You…you wish you had died when I am done with you” Itachi pulled me by the arm. Well, fun was over.

“Come with us, we are going to drive you home” Shisui said, giving Naruto a small push in the right direction.

“Are you really going to tell my mom, dattebayo?” Naruto asked. Shisui didn’t answer and just sighed.

“Hey, I appreciate you took care of him, it must have been really-”

“Hard? Oh, it was terribly hard and it was so hard I swear it would rip out of my pants” Shisui frowned and looked confused. Naruto swallowed, “We…we were talking different kinds of hard…dattebayo…”


Oxoxoxoxox

*next morning*

“Fucking kill me already!I I can’t…I can’t!” I laid on the rug, hugging my knees and trying to hide my face.

“No…you did this…you have to suffer and learn from the pain” Itachi said, rewinding the video his dashcam recorded last night. I could see myself on the screen again, drunk as I could possible be, trying to seduce Naruto. I looked like a fucking idiot, I am a fucking idiot.

“Don’t you have to go to work or something!” I shouted.

“Nope…we are going to do this all day” he said, crossing his legs.

“Hey, what are you guys doing?” Madara entered the living room.

“Shaming Sasuke” Itachi said it with a smirk spread across his face.


Oxoxox special thanks to @failureoftheyear for editing and for the awesome rap they wrote for this one shot oxoxoxo

Cooking in advance is a very satisfying thing 👍

Each weekend I cook one or two (sometimes more) main dishes in fairly large quantities and freeze most of them in single portion sizes which I can take out for us to enjoy during the week. I also make a ‘store’ of sides by cooking ahead whole grains, potatoes 🥔 , sweet potatoes 🍠 and so forth so they are ready in the fridge for me to select from during the week. Veggies take just minutes to steam or stir-fry so I can easily do them at the last minute.

As I do this every weekend, I store up quite a supply of a variety of portions of different dishes, so we can choose from a nice selection of 'homemade ready meals’ at any one time. Delicious and practical!

Not One, But Two (Part IV)

Summary: It all started on that night when you and Jay were both too drunk to remember anything. You resigned from your job and left Seoul with a secret. Now you’re back and ready to tell Jay about them, but doing so means sharing their lives and putting his career and love life on the line.

The moon was a faint image in the sky when you got out Jay’s car in the parking lot. You fixed the strap of your bag on your shoulder and flattened any creases on your green dress, making sure that you looked presentable and decent enough to be the mother of Suri and Jaeyoung.

Beside you, Jay snickered as he watched you fidget. You had been unstoppable since he picked you the twins up in your house. “Everything’s going to be fine. They won’t mind how you look. As long as you come,” he said. He had already told his family about you and the twins, and they insisted on meeting you.

“You don’t know that,” you replied, narrowing your eyes at him. You looked up at the tall building in front of you and gulped. One or more of those windows belonged to the house where Jay’s parents lived.

Bacon Bread

It’s been a week or two since I updated, since classes started up again. But I have gotten so many requests for this one that I have to get this one out there. It’s time for bakin’ bread. Or should I say, it’s time for BACON BREAD!

Embarrassing fact about me: despite being a young woman with rather long hair, I have never learned how to braid. Trying to watch Youtube tutorials about how to braid with your hands covered in dough is… an experience. I think I finally got it down, though. It almost looks like challah! 

This bread is not the healthiest thing. But it’s worth the calories (and the Poetics) for good bacon. I really like the smoky saltiness of the bacon against the soft, fluffy bread and the savory thyme, and this is going to make some amazing sandwiches. I’m thinking a Gruyere and avocado grilled cheese…. 

Bacon Bread! 

¾ cup milk

1 tbsp sugar (I used maple for authenticity, but table sugar is fine)

1 packet active dry yeast 

pinch of salt

2 eggs

6 tbsp butter

About 3 ½ cups of flour, might be a little more or less depending on many factors (humidity, altitude, temperature, etc) 

5 or 6 slices of thick-sliced bacon

pinch of dried thyme


Heat your milk (microwave is fine) until it’s warm, about 110 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the milk into a large mixing bowl and add 1 tbsp maple sugar (or table sugar) and 1 packet of active dry yeast. Let the yeast have some time to wake up (I let mine proof for ten minutes or so.) It should look kind of lumpy and bubbly and smell distinctly bready. Once the yeast is done proofing, add a pinch of salt and 2 eggs (beaten), then begin adding the flour 1 cup or so at a time and incorporating it into the dough. When the dough is beginning to look less like a pile of flour and more like, well, bread dough, add 6 tbsp of melted butter and begin kneading. Knead it until you can form an elastic ball of dough that stays together. It should look shiny and smooth. 

Put the dough in a greased or nonstick bowl and lightly cover, either with loose foil or a damp kitchen towel. Let it hang out at room temperature until it’s doubled in volume (took about 45 minutes for me.) While you’re waiting for your dough to rise, go ahead and cook your bacon. You want to render out most of the fatty parts so there’s not too many chewy fat bites in the bread. Cook the bacon to your liking and then blot, crumble into small pieces, and set aside. When the dough has doubled in size, punch it down to get the air bubbles out. Add in your cooked bacon pieces and a big healthy pinch of dried thyme and knead them into the dough. 

Separate your dough into 3 parts and roll each part out long, then braid the pieces together. If you would rather just bake it as a round loaf, that’s fine too - just shape it with your hands and place it on a lightly greased baking sheet. Let the dough rest for a few minutes on the baking sheet after you’ve shaped it - it’ll yield a fluffier and moister loaf. Bake your loaf at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 35 minutes or until the center reaches about 190 degrees Fahrenheit. Wait to let it cool - if you can - and enjoy a slice of Bacon Bread!! 

just us two - luke hemmings (part 6)

Luke knew that parenthood was never going to be easy when his girlfriend left him standing in the delivery ward with their baby clasped in his hands. his 5 year old daughter striking up a feud with the son of a coldly beautiful single mum was not a complication he had anticipated though. nor was falling in love with her.

part 1 / part 2 / part 3 / part 4 / part 5 


‘Daddy! Sampson and Y/N are here!’ Luna yelled, small feet drumming across the floor as she ran to the door.

'Just coming lu-lu.’ Luke replied, hurrying down the stairs almost as quickly as his daughter and opening the door.

'Hi Luke.’ Y/N smiled, setting Sampson down and watching fondly as the two children darted giggling through Luke’s legs and up to Luna’s room. 'Thanks again for having him on such short notice.’

'It’s fine, the least I could do considering the situation.’ Luke smiled back, hesitating slightly before he spoke again. 'I do have a sitter on standby just in case you know, I could come with you if you wanted someone else there.’

'I don’t think that’s really necessary.’ Y/N smiled softly. 'I know he came off a little badly yesterday but I think it was a shock for him too to see me with someone else. And considering his mother had just passed away as well…’ Y/N trailed off and Luke felt a pang of guilt as he thought of how alone the other man must be feeling without any family left.

'You’re right, I’m sorry.’ he shook his head.

'You have nothing to apologise for, you’ve helped me so much.’ Y/N reminded him, reaching out to take his hand and squeeze it briefly.

'I understand how hard it can be sometimes.’ Luke shrugged, unable to keep the fondness from his voice as he looked down at Y/N. 

'Well, I’ll see you in a couple of hours. Hopefully around 8 so Sampson should have fallen asleep properly by then.’ Y/N said, peering around Luke so she could yell up the stairs. 'Bye Sammy!’

‘Bye Mommy! Love you!’ they heard the little boy’s voice call.

‘Love you too sunshine!’ Y/N replied. ‘Goodbye then.’ She smiled to Luke.

‘Bye.’ He said, watching as she walked back out to her car.

‘Luke wait.’ Y/N said, turning back around and walking back to the house. ‘Do I look okay?’ she asked nervously, looking down at her outfit and tugging nervously at the hem of her dress.

‘You look beautiful.’ Luke said quietly, reaching out to tuck a stray strand of hair behind her ear. Y/N looked up at Luke with lips slightly parted, a glimmer he couldn’t decipher in her eyes as she started to lean in towards him.

anonymous asked:

so this year is gonna be busy for me cuz i have some important exams, and my teachers assign SO MUCH HOMEWORK?? and i can't really find time to improve on art. so im curious, how YOU manage time with school and art??

I literally schedule EVERYTHING. Sticking to a schedule is very important for time management. Of course sometimes I do procrastinate but generally I stick to my schedule. Setting up reminders helps too!

Additionally, there is a lot more information/advice here: 

Hello! My name is Anna. I am a friend of Vic and she was kind enough to have me add on something to her post. This is a little bit of a long post but it walks through a lot of ways to begin & maintain time management so hopefully it teaches you something. 

First, I want to say that time management is intimately linked to self-control and both of these are mental “muscles”. What I mean by this is…

Imagine Bofur playing matchmaker between you and Bilbo

For middleearth2asgard :)

~~~~~~~~~

You were watching Bofur and Bilbo suspiciously from your place by the fire, although you tried not to look too obvious. For the last fifteen minutes they’d been whispering together and casting glances at you every time they thought you weren’t looking which was making you extremely paranoid. ‘They’re my friends, they wouldn’t start talking about me behind my back.’ You chastised yourself. You figured it was just best to ignore them and get back to mending the hole in your shirt. After a while you heard heavy boots approaching you.

“Can I sit here?” Bofur asked.

He’d stopped talking to Bilbo now and was already sitting down next to you before you could reply. You looked over at Bilbo, his small hobbit face a worrying crimson colour.

“Why does Bilbo look like a ripe tomato?” You asked Bofur quietly.

Bofur looked over at Bilbo and chuckled under his breath. “It must be the heat from the fire.” He said casually.

“So nothing to do with the little conversation you were just having with him?” You asked, raising an eyebrow.

“Oh that? No that was nothing.” He smiled innocently, “But I would like to ask you something.”

You put your needle and thread down and turned to the dwarf, “Go on.” You said warily.

He looked around then leant forward and cupped your ear with his hands before whispering, like a child telling a secret.

“Do you like Bilbo?” He asked.

You laughed, “Of course I do, it wouldn’t be much of a friendship if I didn’t like him.”

He sighed, “No, do you like Bilbo?”

You realised what he was hinting at and your face almost turned as red as Bilbo’s. Bofur smiled at your reaction.

“I’ll take that as a yes.” He started laughing loudly, drawing some faces to stare at you both questioningly.

“Shhh keep it down. You won’t tell anyone will you?” You asked seriously.

“Of course not y/n. It’s not my business too,” He smiled reassuringly back at you, “but I think you should tell him how you feel.”

“No no no. Not going to happen.” You said stubbornly, going back to mending your shirt.

“But if-” he started.

“I said no Bofur!” You said, a little more forcefully as Bofur sighed in exasperation.

Over the next few days you noticed Bofur had been forcing you and Bilbo to spend more and more time together. You were told to go and find dry wood for the fire with him, stay on watch with him, cook dinner, scout ahead, you felt like you were joined at the hip. You knew Bofur was trying to get you to confess how you feel to Bilbo but no matter how many times you tried to work up the courage to say something the fear of being rejected was too much to bear so you just kept your mouth shut.

Then one day you were walking beside the little hobbit, Bofur walking in front of you winking and making signals to try and get you to talk to him when he could take it no longer.

“Fine! You’re both as stubborn as each other so if you won’t say it I will!” He announced loudly, stopping and turning round to face you.

The rest of the company stopped too, to see what all the commotion was about.

“Bilbo, y/n is head over heels in love with you!” He said.

You stared at him in shock and felt utterly betrayed.

“I-I never said that exactly-” you tried to explain quickly.

“Y/n Bilbo has a crush bigger than Erebor on you!” He said, pointing to Bilbo.

You looked at Bilbo as his face began to turn red again and he looked hesitantly up at you.

“Is that true?” You asked him breathlessly.

“Yes! Now will you stop acting like a pair of children and just KISS!” Bofur said, beginning to flail his arms wildly.

Everyone stood in silence for a moment but to you and Bilbo it felt like a decade. You decided you needed to do something to break the silence so you took Bofur’s advice and grabbed Bilbo by the shoulders and before he could take in what was happening your lips were against his, kissing him softly and passionately, this moment had happened so many times in both of your minds you couldn’t quite believe it was happening until you pulled away and smiled down at him.

“Wow…that was…nice…” Bilbo said simply, struggling to find the right words, making you laugh.

He took your hand in his and stroked it softly as you continued to beam at each other.

“Alright, I think that’s enough, keep moving.” Shouted Thorin from the front, shaking his head at you both.

You continued to walk, Bilbo’s small hand in your own. You felt as if a weight had been lifted off your chest and were happier than you’d been throughout the entire journey, knowing that Bilbo felt the same about you as you did for him. Bofur looked back and winked at you both, you were still a little miffed at his betrayal but you were sure you and Bilbo could come up with some kind of revenge plan.

2p Allie's reactions to S/O burning dinner
  • 2p America: "No, no, it's fine babe, really. You don't need to be upset, we can just go out, okay??" [He just doesn't want them to get upset about it]
  • 2p China: "What? Why are you so upset, accidents happen. We can just order something, it'll all be fine!" [Much like Allen, he just doesn't want them to get upset because he knew that they definitely didn't mean it.]
  • 2p England: "Oh sweetheart, I'm so sorry! Here, why don't we try again, let's both cook this time!" [Is more than willing to allow them to try again, though he'll definitely be with them and will make sure nothing goes wrong again.]
  • 2p France: "Hm? It's fine, shit happens. Oh. Here, let me try-" [Would go ahead and cook dinner for the both of you himself when he saw how upset his s/o was]
  • 2p Russia: "I'm sure you didn't mean it, but you do need to be more careful. Let's just try again." [Would let them try again, but would definitely let them know that they need to be more attentive while they're cooking]
  • 2p Canada: "Hm? You burned it? Fine, hold on..." [Would just cook it himself, no questions asked, and would rather you not help. It's not that he doesn't trust you, he would just rather cook alone when he can]
Fluffy Omelets      HP 300

In celebration of its 9th anniversary (yesterday) I thought I’d post some MOTHER 3 recipes for you all :).


What’s your favorite food? Is it omelets? You certainly wouldn’t be alone in the quaint hamlet of Tazmilly if it is. But just how do they get this breakfast staple to taste so fluffy and delicious? Could it be the farm fresh eggs from the summit of Mt. Oriander, or that distinctive bite of peculiar cheese melted on top? There’s even a rumor going around that claims the town’s famous omelets are actually grown in the castle courtyard garden!! All speculation aside however, I’d have to say that what really makes them special is the love of Mothers throughout the village cooking their children’s favorite meal.

Truthfully, a written recipe can only go so far at attempting to capture that kind of familial affection, so just consider this a starting point and feel free to add in whatever else you’d like.
