Hello! I have an idea for the ficlet (feel better btw!). Okay: HS AU with popular!Dean and popular!Cas, they're those two annoying guys who make funny (but also obnoxious) comments in every single class, and make stupid, flirtatious remarks to each other like "Cas looks pretty hot today guys" or "I'm totally dating Dean, everyone" etc. Only thing is, they're secretly in love, but neither will admit it. I've had this idea for a while and I'd LOVE for a talented author to execute it.

Aaaahhh it’s been too long since I’ve done a High School AU and I’ve missed it. Thanks for this one and thanks so much for asking me to fufill the prompt! I hope I do it justice :)

“Please take your seats quickly. I want to discuss your quiz scores so we can go over any questions you may have before the final test.” Ms. Mills said with a stack of papers clutched against her chest.

Dean stretched his arms above his head as he flopped into his usual seat on the third row, next to the wall so he could lean up against it in times of extreme laziness. He sprawled out accordingly, dropping his backpack to the floor and draping his letterman jacket over his seat until the air conditioning kicked in during the middle of class like it usually did.

“Hey, hot stuff.” Dean said with a nod as Castiel sat down in the seat next to him.

“Good morning, Dean.” Castiel said, barely looking up as he aligned his binder and world history book neatly on the small desk in front of him.

“How was that student council thingy yesterday?” Dean asked, popping a piece of gum into his mouth.

“Absolutely dreary without your shining personality to brighten all of our days,” Castiel murmured, completely straight-faced.

Dean winked as Ms. Mills began talking again.

“Some of you need to look at your notes from the beginning of the year again,” she said as she began passing back the quizzes. “And some of you need to remember that - if you want full credit on the final test - the answer to ‘What are the seven wonders of the ancient world’ is not ‘Castiel Novak’s Ass’ written seven times.”

She frowned when she got to Dean’s desk, dropping the paper on his desk as the rest of the class laughed.

Dean clicked his tongue and made a finger gun at Castiel with another wink.

“Really, Dean? Don’t be childish.” Castiel said, just loud enough for everyone to hear. “We all know that’s not true. I haven’t done any squats in at least a month.”

So… I made a thing! Because Robin and Regina are AWESOME and because @revolutionsoftheheart wrote a thing years ago that gave me insanely many feels!

Let me know what you think! And do not ask who’s the beauty and who the beast… When it comes to Robin and Regina… they were always both. And they loved each other as a whole, the good and the bad. And that’s why we all fell in love with them too. ♥

Outlaw Queen guys… Always.

Arabic-Inspired Lentil Loaf and Jerusalem Salad

Don’t mind my cat’s tail! That really is the best picture from my bunch and I couldn’t stop laughing, so I had to!

I had this ambitious idea to make lentil burgers this week and sometime around, hmm, right before lunch I said, “Or, I could skip getting it stuck all over my hands and sorting through the dud burgers and just smash the whole thing into a baking dish and call it a loaf.” I did make some significant changes to the flavor profile, so this is not my lentil burger recipe. I’ll have to share that with you sometime I’m not so lazy! I made the flavor profile much more Arabic seven-spice inspired and infused it with a tart glaze on top that adds a contrast to the deep earthiness of that spice mixture.

On the side, I served a Jerusalem salad. I had this salad for the first time at a shawarma place on my college campus and it’s taken me this long to properly replicate the dressing. It gives the plate a really nice fresh note and a little bit of coolness. I think these pair beautifully.

Loaf

  • 1 lb dried lentils, rinsed and picked over
  • 2 eggs (or egg substitute)
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 cup rolled oats, milled into flour
  • ½ large onion, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 serrano, minced 
  • large handful of spinach, chopped
  • 2 TBSP fresh parsley, minced
  • salt, to taste
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 + ½ TBSP cumin
  • ½ TBSP paprika
  • ⅛ tsp clove
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼  tsp cinnamon
  • ½  tsp cardamon 

Glaze

  • 2 TBSP pomegranate molasses
  • juice of a lemon
  • 1 tsp sugar

Directions: Cook the lentils to package instruction ahead of time and have your vegetables prepared as well. Preheat the oven to 350F. In a food processor mill your oats and set them aside in a small bowl. Next, pulse your lentils in the food processor. Do not turn it into a puree, just pulse it around a few times to break them up a bit. If you think the lentils don’t have enough “give” to them add a tablespoon or two of water. In a large mixing bowl, toss in the lentil mixture, the 2 eggs, and the oil. Stir it around a bit. Now, add in the onion, carrots, garlic, serrano, spinach, parsley, and all salt + spices. Stir it around to combine thoroughly. Lastly, add in the oat flour and stir to recombine. In a small saucepan, pour in the pomegranate molasses, the lemon juice, and the bit of sugar. Heat it up over high heat and once it bubbles, take it down to low, and stir constantly until it thickens slightly.

Spray a baking dish (around 11”x13”) with no stick, spoon in the mixture, and even it out. Pour the pomegranate glaze on top and stick it in the oven. Cooking time will vary depending on ovens and dish dimensions so start checking for doneness at the 25-30 minute mark. 10-12 servings.

Salad

  • 1 lb cucumber, diced
  • 1 lb vine ripe tomatoes, diced (don’t keep too much of the “guts”)
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 2 TBSP fresh parsley, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice (2-3 lemons depending on ripeness)
  • ¼ cup tahini paste
  • 3 TBSP plain, unsweetened Greek yogurt or alternative (I used So Delicious)
  • 1 large clove of garlic
  • salt, to taste

Directions: Prepare vegetables (except the garlic) and place them in a mixing bowl. In the food processor combine the lemon juice, tahini, yogurt, garlic, and salt. Blitz it until completely smooth. Pour it on top of the vegetables and stir to combine. Ideally, let it sit the fridge for a bit before serving.

BBQ Bean Burgers

Hmm. I’m going to do a drive by this time. I usually write some assortment of words here, but ahem–beans, spices, cheap, high yield, vegan, go.

  • 1 lb dried pinto beans, soaked and prepared to package instruction
  • 2 TBSP low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP Worcheshire sauce 
  • salt, to taste (beans are greedy for salt but remember soy sauce has quite a bit already)
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1 TBSP chili powder
  • 1 TBSP paprika
  • ½ TBSP ground cumin
  • 1 TBSP garlic powder
  • 1 TBSP onion powder
  • 1 TBSP brown sugar
  • 2 TBSP flax meal soaked in 6 TBSP water (to make flax egg)
  • 1 cup rolled oats, milled into a flour

Directions: Drive by. Do your beans ahead of time. Mix the flax meal and water ahead of time, set it in the fridge. Mill oats, set aside. Mix all the salt, brown sugar, and spices together–mmhmm, set aside. In a food processor, puree the beans. You might need a bit of water to help break it apart but you might not! Spoon the bean puree into a large mixing bowl. Toss in the spices and pour in the soy sauce, Worcheshire, and flax egg. Stir the crap out of that. Toss in the oat flour and stir the crap out of that again. Form into approximately 4 oz patties. The mixture should make about 10-12 of those depending on accuracy. Heat up an oiled skillet, fry on one side, flip, and cover skillet with lid until cooked through. Do it batches because life sucks sometimes. They’re a little fragile at first but set up pretty well after cooling for a bit. Serve with sides and toppings.
