Week 3

I think I’m actually doing something right this time because i’ve already lost another 8 pounds!!

That’s a total of 15 pounds. 

I was so nervous for this week’s weigh in because i had slipped up so many times. since i don’t have access to my money, i’ve eaten a lot of pasta, broke down a couple times and binged on baked potatoes smothered in butter & cheese. It’s been a rough week. But I’m already seeing a difference in the mirror, i swear i look thinner every day. i noticed today, i looked like i did when i would suck in, but i wasn’t sucking in and that made me so happy. and weighing myself today, i was completely blown away. 

I’m super happy with my progress 

Current Weight: 233

I lost another inch around my waist, .25 around my hips, & 1 inch around my arms. 

Recipe: Hashbrowns

Description: Crispy and golden-brown!

Game Ingredients: Potato, Oil

This recipe restores 90 energy, 36 health, and gives a +1 farming bonus. It can obtained from the Cooking Channel and sells for 120g. 

Difficulty: Easy, 15 minutes. Serves 2.

I’m a little perplexed at the number of hashbrown variations there are but I like this one. 

-2 russet potatoes, peeled and grated
-½ cup grated cheese
-1 egg
-2 tablespoons flour
-Olive oil
-salt and pepper, to taste
-dehydrated chive rings or freshly chopped chives (optional)

Grate up the potatoes overtop a tea towel, as they tend to release a lot of juice. I was unaware of this so my hashbrowns mixture wound up being pretty gooey and needed more flour than expected. 

Combine the grated potatoes, cheese, egg, salt + pepper, and the chives into a bowl. Add the flour last, one tablespoon at a time. You might need more flour depending on the amount of moisture in the mixture. Add enough flour until it holds its shape well.

Yeah…that’s…appealing. And raw potato doesn’t smell wonderful either. 

Pour enough olive oil into a frying pan until it almost covers the bottom of the pan. Put it on medium heat. Once the oil is hot enough, carefully form small patties out of the mixture and place them in the pan, flattening them with a spatula. Cook on the one side for about 5 minutes before flipping them over, then cook for a couple more minutes or til done.

Place in a paper towel for a few minutes to soak up excess oil and then serve with eggs or eat plain. 

Crispy goodness. 


anonymous asked:

What's your most popular dish at your pub Mr. Brewer?

Seamus: “Ever since we opened, it’s always been the Steak And Ale Pie - hand-shaped, and served with chips, or steak fries as most call them. But some of our vegetarian options, taste-tested by Taffy and Nialas, are threatening to dethrone it!”

Taffy: “Yeah, I’ve, uh, seen monsters eating Cheese And Potato pie, and the Five-Bean Chili is popular! There’s also a really good mushroom burger, and a tofu-spinach curry that we even adapted into a homemade freeze-dried meal!”

Seamus: “I find the trick is not to try and imitate meat, but to try and bring out the best of meatless ingredients. Any bloke can throw a beef roast in the pot and call it a day, but making a meal from vegetables takes a bit more thought.”

Taffy: “Like that Vegetables Wellington you made for Gyftmas dinner… it was a lot of work, but as a centerpiece, it was stunning…  here, I’ll, uh, attach a photo to the post for you guys.”


1 & 2: Lunch from Whole Foods: Best place for a cheap and healthy lunch. Their salad and hot bars have a lot of vegan options!

3: Gourmet vegan experience at Blossom Restaurant: Quinoa sushi, lasagna and chocolate ganache with peanut butter drizzle. It was phenomenal. I highly recommend this place.

4: Burgers and sweet potato fries from by CHLOE.: The patty was a little bit dry but apart from that the burger was AMAZING. The fries are air-fried so they’re not as greasy as usual which I really liked as well! They have a few different burgers, salads, mac n cheese, meatball parm and a variety of desserts!

5: Pizza from Two Boots Pizza in Grand Central Terminal: Those are the two vegan pizzas they have. I’m actually not a fan of vegan cheese but the one with cheese on top was SOOOO GOOD. The other one had a lot of veggies on it and it was really good, too.

6: Chipotle burrito at V-Spot in Brooklyn: A latin restaurant serving tacos, quesadillas, empanadas, burritos and other things. My burrito was filled with seitan, avocado, vegan cheese and sour cream and chipotle refried beans. 100% on point.

7 & 8: Beyond amazing sushi at Beyond Sushi: All vegan sushi restaurant with amazingly colourful and flavourful offerings. I tried the mighty mushroom roll and sweet potato roll and the carrot and mango pieces. I love love loved it.

9: Donuts from Erin McKenna’s Bakery: Super cute all vegan and gluten free (refined sugar free, wheat free, non GMO,..) bakery offering donuts, brownies, cupcakes, loaves, cookie sandwiches and more. I had the chocolate dipped, salted caramel and samao donuts and they were all moist and flavourful. I wish I could have tried more of their stuff.

10: Chloe’s Soft Serve Fruit Co.: The soft serve is made from fruit, water and organic cane sugar. You can choose from 6 different flavours and add your favourite toppings. I ordered the banana flavour which was a mistake since it tasted just like homemade banana ice cream. It was still super good though!

Crockpot Potato Soup

Here’s a recipe I got from my mom for my favorite potato soup! I love it because it is so easy to make, really tasty, and makes lots of meals (one batch makes enough for about 5 or 6 big servings).

You will need:

  • One package frozen, diced, hash brown potatoes. This usually comes in a 32oz bag, but doesn’t have to be exactly that size!
  • One can condensed cream of potato soup
  • One box vegetable broth, also about 30oz
  • One 8oz bar cream cheese
  • Anything you like to use to top! I like pepper, shredded cheese, and oyster crackers, but get creative! Green onions, bacon, shredded carrots, spices, anything you like!


My favorite thing about this recipe is that there is no measuring. Just throw the whole packages in your crock pot!

  • Empty the whole packages of potatoes (still frozen), condensed soup, and vegetable broth into your crock pot
  • Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  • Meanwhile pull your cream cheese out of the refrigerator to soften. If you are worried about leaving it out too long you can microwave it for 10 seconds at a time until it’s soft, but not melted (remember to take the foil off before microwaving!)
  • Approximately a half an hour before eating add the cream cheese in chunks, stirring just to combine.
  • Cook another 30 mins to an hour. Stir again before serving, top, and enjoy!

This soup will also keep well in the refrigerator, I like to store it in individual serving sized containers.

the signs as good ways to eat potatoes
  • Aries: with cheese
  • Taurus: fried in oil until crisp
  • Gemini: bake them and then scoop out the insides and mix the insides with cheese and them bake them some more
  • Cancer: how many potatoes do you think you can eat before you die from eating so many potatoes? probably a lot, right?
  • Leo: mashed with butter
  • Virgo: remember to wash them first. they grow in the ground did you know that?
  • Libra: are potatoes gluten free? i don't know how gluten works i guess.
  • Scorpio: eat a raw potato like an apple
  • Sagittarius: spend the entire weekend going from fast food place to fast food place ordering fries. make a chart about it. eat nothing else this weekend.
  • Capricorn: the best potatoes are potatoes prepared by someone else
  • Aquarius: sweet maui onion kettle style potato chips
  • Pisces: stick em inna stew

Goooooood morning Pocket!!! So I was working on mocha cupcakes and I thought - why stop? Why are we limited by our ridiculous conventions of the normal? Why not go wild?

So if you lot would like to drop by, we have bacon flavoured … well, everything. Donuts, cupcakes, and cake. Maple bacon too, for you sweet-tooths! 

Savoury cheese cake. Cheese stuffed donuts. Pizza cheesecake.

Salted caramel. Chilli chocolate.

Chocolate coated potato chips (my favourite, personally). 

And did I mention the mocha cupcakes - they’re chocolate cupcakes with a molten coffee centre that melts in your mouth


tonight’s dinner is going to be a little tribute to my great grandma (who would be about 102 if she were still with us). she would always make us grilled cheese sandwiches, green beans, fried potatoes, and then give us a big cup of black tea with a little milk and lots of sugar :p that was my favorite.. so i’m going to kind of recreate that tonight. she was teaching me how to play the piano before she passed, and i owe a lot of my cooking skills to her. she was probably the kindest person i’ve met in my whole life.
