Minestrone soup and gluten free Newburn Bakehouse sourdough bread (a.k.a. my new favourite gf bread!!)
My local supermarket (Morrisons) has seriously expanded their gluten free range in the last few days and I’m so excited with all the new things to try. And the arrival of this sourdough bread has just suddenly made my coeliac life better! I don’t know how long it’s been available, but I hadn’t seen it anywhere until now. You know how a lot of gluten free breads need to be toasted to be edible? Well this one has a great texture and taste even when fresh! It doesn’t fall apart and it’s not full of holes either which is always a bonus with gf bread. 😂
I can see this bread becoming my number one choice from now on. Admittedly it’s not the cheapest (£3.00) nor the biggest one out there, but I don’t personally eat a lot of bread so I’m happy to pay for quality over quantity when I do.
For the minestrone soup, I just threw a bunch of things I had left in my fridge together:
Carrot, celery, potato, swede, garlic, onion, courgette, chopped tomato tins, Viva Mais alphabet shaped corn soup pasta, a small pack of pancetta, bay leaves, dried herbs, gluten free worcester sauce, harissa paste, a few Kallo stock cubes, salt and black pepper.
@arcane-trickster tagged me to do this a LONG ass time ago, luckily, I have a SNOW DAY off of my classes today so I finally have a second to get this business done. I’ll tag @themediamenbegtodiffer and anyone else that wants to do it! Let’s go.
5) Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII)
A very new addition, and calling him my new #5 might be pretty preemptive, but I’m recently taking a foray into the Final Fantasy series (a million years after everyone else), and I LOVE Sephiroth so far. He has an amazing design and looks unendingly intimadting and awesome, an has all kinds of gravitas and danger to him. You pity him in a way, but never in a manner that justifies his actions or makes you think he could ever turn good. George Newburn does an amazing job as his voice. Maybe I’m biased but his monotone makes him sound so damn condescending and badass like nothing could touch him. Everything about him just bleeds badass.
4) D’Vorah (Mortal Kombat X)
I’ve always loved bug-characters, and I’ve been freaking out over D’Vorah since the day I watched the cutscenes to MKX and met her. I just FINALLY got my own PS4 for my birthday and now I can actually PLAY as her and my love for her has only risen from there. She was the sneaky chessmaster that fucked with everyone, and yet you were really engaged by her. She’s the only purely villainous character that the game has you PLAY as in the story mode just to drive home how important and convincing she is in her role. MK has been my favorite video game for very long, so it’s a bit surprising the newest game gave me my favorite character in the whole franchise.
3) Captain Cold (DC)
I love a villain with honor and standards, with Captain Cold perfectly exemplifies. He’s a rough dude, but with a heart of gold. And over that is a layer of frost. He’ll avoid murder if he can, but tempt him? And you’ll wish you hadn’t. Just ask Chillsbane, the supervillain that murdered his sister and learned the hard way what happens when you mess with the Cap. The Flash ‘Rogues’ were always huge jokes, but it’s Captain Cold that assembled them and got their shit together. He’ll always be the Flash’s archenemy in my eyes.
2) Captain Hook (Peter Pan)
My favorite Disney villain–Hook is everything I look for in a villain. He’s funny, but he can be threatening. He’s got tons of flare, but isn’t afriad to get his hand(s) dirty. And of course he has that obsession with his nemesis. Not much else to say, he’s timeless and iconic for a reason.
1) Lex Luthor (DC)
N-NO! NO! NOT YOU! GET OUT! GET OUT!
Theeere we go. Lex Luthor is the perfect villain in my mind. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, he has a fascinating complex with his nemesis, and while he’s brutal and ruthless beyond belief, he has standards. He doesn’t always win, but if he’s down he never stays down. He also just has a lot of value sentimentally for me. My mom got me the Justice League cartoon boxset a couple Christmas’s ago and very little matches staying up late that night watching Luthor match wits with the League in the best era of DC animation.
Doctors put me on a fodmap diet to help with my bloating and other symptoms!! Here goes….. day one breakfast!!
2 runny eggs and Newburn bakehouse (gluten free, wheat free, dairy free) bread with margarine!
The bread is definitely an acquired taste.
