Hobo Stove Pakoras with Backyard Foraged Dandelions

Our backyard has exploded with dandelions, and I’ve been keen to try out a camping recipe.

Hobo stove.

Upcycled from its previous life as a giant can of chickpeas, this simple device was also begging for a test drive.

Tinder. Twigs. Light.

===

Dandeliiiiiiiions.

I plucked these golden nuggets straight from the yard and gave them a quick rinse. The moisture trapped in the petals hold the perfect amount to adhere the flour and spices - no need to add more. My take on the pakora mix consists of chickpea flour, coconut flour, fine cornmeal flour - a 3:1:1 ratio. For seasoning, add a pinch of garam masala, turmeric, salt, and chili powder.

Toss in bag. Coat.

===

Fry.

Let the pakoras slide around the pan. Careful to turn and not burn. The hobo stove can pack a lot of heat. 

===

Serve with a chutney or your favorite condiment. Can’t get more seasonal, local, homecooked, and energy-efficient than this!

BACKYARD FORAGED DANDELION PAKORA POPPERS….DONE~

Everyone just read that in the voice of Gordon Ramsay from FWord right? Right…? Because otherwise I just wasted 30min of my life concocting this.

Serious (Request)

Can you make one where Harry had a crush on y/n, and when she gives him a chance and they start dating, she think he just wants something casual, nothing long term, but after a while he starts to show her he actually wants them to be in a serious relationship.

————————————————————————————————–

It was at a garden party where you first started to suspect that Harry had a crush on you. There was no way for you to know for sure without asking, of course, but the way he was acting made you suspicious. The problem was, Harry was a flirty person by nature. Give him a couple drinks and he practically fell into someone’s arms whether he knew them well or not. So it was no shock to you when he started getting friendly with you at this particular garden party. It was only after you realized that he hadn’t had anything to drink that something went off in your head.

The two of you had known each other for a couple of months, had seen each other off and on, had several mutual friends in common and got along pretty well. You thought he was cute, but you were also highly aware of his track record with women. Obviously, a lot of that was fabricated by the newspapers but sometimes, pictures can’t lie. You were fairly certain that, as wonderful as his intentions would be and as genuine as his feelings would likely come across, Harry Styles wasn’t one to settle down. He was too restless, too busy, maybe even too scared. You wanted something more solid and predictable. You had been burned by relationships in the past and you didn’t want to get involved with someone again unless you were sure it was going to go somewhere. So when Harry started very obviously flirting with you while the two of you were sat by the pool, your guard instantly went up.

It started off slowly; gently poking and prodding at your arm to try and get you in the water. When you finally gave in and slipped into the pool, Harry barely left your side. He disguised it well; suggesting a game of chicken with a couple other people who were in the water with you. What a lovely excuse to get you on his shoulders. Later on in the evening when you were all sitting around the tiny outdoor wood stove in the dark, you could feel just how close to you he was. Despite the heat from the stove it was still a bit chilly, especially since you had been in the water only a short time before. Harry saw that you were trying to wrap your arms around yourself to keep warm and shuffled out of his zip-up sweater before handing it over to you.

You must have looked at him a bit incredulously because he chuckled and draped it around your shoulders for you.

“You’re cold.” He said, matter-of-factly. “Just tryin’ to warm you up.”

And don’t think you missed the subtle bump of his knee against yours every so often. You started out sitting a good six inches away from each other but by the end of the evening there was barely any space left between you. You had to admit – as cautious as you wanted to be – you really did think he was cute. He succeeded in giving you butterflies simply by smiling at you the right way and it had been a long time since anyone had been able to do that.

BioLite CampStove

You can cook on wood while, at the same time, generate electricity to charge your gadgets!  Typically used outdoors, the stove works in the following way: the heat from the fire generates electricity via a thermoelectric generator to power a fan creating airflow for improved combustion.

Aphorism I (a ‘19 Days’ fanfiction)

CHAPTER 1

The door opened. 

And they stared at each other. 

And then, slowly, they moved inside, a too-small apartment that had every possible room pushed into one. Jian Yi sat in an armchair that had socks over it and an old packet of crisps shoved down the side. Zhengxi sat on the edge of his bed, and rubbed his palms across his thighs, and he hadn’t blinked for a while.

He swallowed, loud enough for Jian Yi to hear his throat click, bone dry. ‘Where’ve you been?’ he said.

‘Oh, around,’ Jian Yi told him, shrugging, pulling at the hairband on his wrist. He’d bought it recently and it was still too tight, the elastic too strong, and it left red imprints in his skin. ‘Here, there. I went to Maui for a bit. Beautiful place. Awesome storms. And then Wales, which was kind of beautiful in its own way. Have you been? Russia was cold. No one smiled much. And Prague – I mean, the language was kind of odd but wow that architecture. Did you know—’

‘Where the fuck. Have you been.’

Jian Yi coughed, and scratched the back of his neck. ‘Er. I was kind of telling you.’

‘I looked for you. For months. A year. I thought I was losing my mind. Thought I’d made you up. The teachers wouldn’t say anything – didn’t know anything. Your mother just left. I thought – I thought you were dead.’
