Ok guys, here’s a photo set of me, bae and our first dinner made in our new apartment.

We got some:
-breaded chicken with mozzarella cheese melted on top, drizzled with our home made cannabis lemon butter sauce.
-seasoned brussel sprouts topped with cannabis olive oil.
-and lastly, some mini microwaveable sweet potatoes bc I got lazy in the end so fuck it right?
All in all, it was very delicious and I am very stoned.

Devil Spy Book One
Devil Spy is a webcomic about a teenage human animal hybrid in a world where humans were wiped out by war.

Good evening everyone! As announced in the last Devil Spy Book Kickstarter campaign updates, if the campaign reaches goal, I’m offering a bonus large print to be sent out to everyone who’s pledged at the $35+ reward level. This includes international backers. Here is the design, hope you like it!

The campaign is currently just shy of the $2000 mark, it’s going to be tough to try to get to goal with only a little more than three days to campaign, but I am prepared to continue trying! If we can get some more backers we could definitely get the book funded! If you happen to know anyone who you think would like to contribute, please do pass the link onto them. And share it where you can, thanks! ^_^

I really do love these characters (especially Wyatt because he’s my chubby bunny) and I want to make these books for everyone SO MUCH! Please check out the Kickstarter, pledge whatever you can if you’re able. Tell as many friends about it as you can. Thank you!

Here’s a Shokugeki no Souma recipe in celebration of the second season starting!! I was so excited to find these on sale that I took a picture of the cans even before I got home. Souma would approve, right? (~ USD $1 each!) It was literally as if the cans were saying:

Canned Mackerel Burger Set Dinner from Shokugeki no Souma (feeds 2-3)

Ingredients

For burger(s)

  • 2 cans mackerel (120g cans)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • Ponzu, 2-3 tbsp
  • Cornflour or potato starch, 2 tbsp

For Soup

  • Egg
  • Dried squid
  • A slice of ginger (optional)
  • Salt, to taste.

Method

For Soup

  1. Boil water in a pot
  2. Reduce heat and add dried squid (enough to cover bottom of pot) and ginger (optional)
  3. SImmer until squid becomes soft, and starts losing a bit of colour.
  4. Remove squid bits and ginger (you can eat it too but I found that most of the flavour went into the soup)
  5. Beat egg
  6. In a circular motion, pour egg into boiling soup.
  7. Immediately take ladle and move it as if you were drawing a cross in the soup. This is to protect the soup against vampires  a Chinese 蛋花湯 (Egg flower soup) technique from my grandma.
  8. Serve in a dark bowl to bring out the egg!

For Burger

  1. Debone Mackerel and crumble into small pieces. Keep the canned mackerel juices somewhere else.
  2. Mix in the onions, garlic, and breadcrumbs till mixture looks even.
  3. Beat eggs and slowly incorporate into mixture.
  4. By now, the mixture should start sticking together. If not, add more breadcrumbs and keep mixing until it does.
  5. Form mixture into a giant patty (this amount makes 2) while heating up some oil in a pan.
  6. Pan fry until brown on one side and flip over. To ensure thorough heat penetration, you might want to cover the pan while pan frying.
  7. Remove patty(ies) from pan.
  8. Pour canned mackerel juices into the pan and heat till simmering.
  9. Pour in ponzu and stir. (You can add more than 2 tbsp if you like, because its sour taste makes the burger refreshing and removes the ‘fishy’ taste.)
  10. Mix starch with a little bit of water till dissolved.
  11. Turn off heat.
  12. A little at a time, drizzle the starch water in while stirring the juices with your spatula. If it starts to clump up, don’t add anymore and wait for the juices to cool down even more. Add the starch water until the texture becomes viscous, but make sure it’s even and still runny.
  13. Pour sauce over burger and serve with soup and white rice.

Time saving tip: I made the soup before starting on the patty, so that I could crumble the fish while the water was boiling.

(Note: This is the same plate that I served Nikumi’s Roti Beef Don on, so you can imagine how big that patty is.)

Last step: Kiss the person who made it for you!
