same cooke

FBI au where Person A is an agent and Person B works in the labs. They don’t positively interact a whole lot because of their jobs and they don’t really get along. That is until they both unknowingly sign up for the same cooking class and they now have to cook together three times a week. And they’re both a mess because work them is different than class them.

It’s ridiculous that food cards [food stamps] won’t buy you precooked food from places like walmart, because it’s literally cheaper on the government, a fully cooked rotisserie chicken with seasoning is cheaper than buying all of the ingredients to make yourself a chicken dinner. 

You have to buy seasoning, oil, the chicken, you have to cook it, instead of just buying a $5 precooked chicken at walmart, you must pay more than double to cook the same thing. 

This is costing the government more money and it is directly penalizing poor people. Many people on snap benefits [food stamps] are on them because of either disability or their job doesn’t pay enough, and usually are overworked. They are being punished for being poor.

Kitchen Witch Recipe: Protection and Prosperity Potatoes

Josh, I thought Foodie Friday wasn’t for a few days…

You’d be correct! However, just as I share other spells, I’d like to share some kitchen spells here and there! And what better way to start off than with protection and prosperity! Enjoy!

Fondant Potatoes for Protection and Prosperity

Ingredients:
-3 large Russet potatoes (prosperity, wealth, health)
-3 tbsp butter (prosperity, wealth, health)
-2 to 3 tbsp Vegetable oil (protection - many vegetable oils are soy, which is linked to protection)
-Rosemary sprigs (protection, wealth, cleansing)
-Salt (cleansing, protection)
-Pepper (protection)
-½ to 1 cup Chicken broth (prosperity, health)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees (Fahrenheit). Cut ends off of the potatoes, then slice down the sides to peel and form cylindrical shapes. Cut the cylinders in half and soak in cold water for about 5 minutes to clean off excess starch. Pat dry with a paper towel.

2. Put oil in a non-stick, oven-safe skillet and put over high heat. When the oil is shimmering, add the potatoes with presentation ends down, and lower the heat to  medium-high. Pan-fry until well browned. Season top-facing ends with salt and pepper.

3. Flip potatoes and season the tops. Use tongs to hold a paper towel and blot the oil out of the skillet. Add butter and rosemary to the skillet.

4. Use tongs to hold a sprig of rosemary and gently brush butter over the potatoes using the sprig. Cook until the butter foams and turns from white to tan.

5. Pour chicken broth into the skillet. and transfer to the oven. Let it cook until potatoes are crisp on the outside, but very tender on the inside, about 30 minutes. If potatoes aren’t tender by 30 minutes, add a quarter cup more broth and cook for 10 more minutes.

6. Transfer to plate or serving platter and spoon rosemary butter from the skillet over the potatoes. Garnish with fresh rosemary sprigs, let cool for 5 minutes, and serve.

Culinary Notes

The main appeal to this dish is savory flavors, rustic presentation, and great texture. The aim is a very crispy exterior to the potatoes, with a tender, almost creamy interior. The flavor and aroma of the rosemary-infused butter will add a lovely touch to the chicken broth used to roast the potatoes. Serve either as a main or as an appetizer paired with meat dishes. (I made this as a main, with a side of sauteed asparagus with a thin balsamic glaze.)

Witchy Tips!

Cook with intent! The ingredients certainly have a lot of influence, but cooking a magical meal means adding each ingredient with the appropriate visualization and intent for what you’re aiming for with the spell.

Don’t be afraid to personalize! Add sigils to the non-presentation ends of the potatoes before cooking, draw the sigil with the oil when adding it to the pan, or trace symbols in the air over the dish before or during cooking. Whatever you feel may add to the spell, add!

Pairings always help! If you feel an ingredient needs to be substituted or paired with another, do so! Thyme is traditional with fondant potatoes, but I felt more inclined to use rosemary when casting this spell. Alternatively, one could use both thyme and rosemary for a double whammy! Likewise one could pair the dish with another dish - in the case of protection and health, perhaps it could be paired as a side dish with chicken cacciatore, or served with red wine to promote prosperity and health!

Confidence! One of the greatest lessons I’ve ever learned or needed to teach is that intent is the most important aspect to a spell. If your intention and heart is in the right place, you can’t mess up the spell! The same goes for cooking. Cook with confidence, and avoid second guessing, and you’ll end up with something flavorful and wonderful! This is why cooking and witchcraft go so well with each other! Intent is key for both skills!

May all your meals be blessed!
Blessed Be! )O(

~Mod Karissa

It just struck me that we see Chuck cooking a lot, and he seems to enjoy it and do it with ease. Thinking through Breaking Bad, Gus is probably the other character we see doing that–taking an interest in making really well crafted meals. Does it stand for something? Maybe their precise, exacting personalities? Their comfort with orchestrating things and keeping them in control?

Yoongi’s Affection

And now it is time for the first half of the Daegu line, my highkey spirit animal who is so so so so so wonderful okay he’s sweet, he’s kind, he’s caring, he’s got a pretty face, a nice voice and an amazing heart, he’s talented he’s hard working he’s just he’s so incredible and inspiring and I respect him so much, Min Yoongi aka Suga aka Agust D

  • Just a quick explanation of this since it’s pretty self explanatory, this is just gonna be a post about I think the boys would cuddle/hug, their PDA levels, etc.
  • Yoongi is more affectionate than some people may think
  • While he’s not the most affectionate in the group, he’s definitely still got a lot of affection going on there
  • Like in the recent video where they were all cooking, he wouldn’t let go of Jimin for anything, Jimin was leaning forward and moving around and Yoongi was just v v content with holding onto his shoulders and his arms
  • I’ve noticed he has this habit of putting his hands on people’s shoulders, like there are a few clips of him doing it with Tae, he did it with chim in that same cooking video, he does it a lot
  • He’s 50/50 about initiating affection, depending on the location, situation and his mood that day
  • Like he’ll totally holding onto your shoulder or letting you lean against him but he’s also okay with you making the first move and holding onto him somehow
  • He has no problem with you having your hand on his back or your arm over his shoulders, he doesn’t give much reaction but you can feel him leaning into it so you know he doesn’t hate it or feel uncomfortable with it
  • He’s someone who would notice the lil things like the things that make you sit back and go d a m n I do that?? so he can easily tell when you’re uncomfortable in a situation and that’s a moment where he’ll put his arm around you as a silent comfort, just a lil “I’m right here if you need me” 
  • Similar to Jin, he’s got a pretty playful personality, he’s really sarcastic and he likes teasing the other boys a lot and, especially with hobi, he gets really !!!! and extra
  • Like that one time someone gave him a microphone and he just sat there screaming “Army” at the top of his lungs while waving the mic around or the one time he sat there screaming “J-Hope” repeatedly
  • A lot of his affection is lighter, more on the playful side but he can be serious of course
  • Has a habit of resting his hand on your thigh or your knee when he sits next to you, doesn’t even realize he’s doing it sometimes bc he’s so used to doing it
  • The one boyfriend who will be teasing you about something but will also have his arm around you so you know he’s just joking around
  • He is a hand holder
  • He goes back and forth with interlocking fingers and just holding onto your hand
  • There’s no real rhyme or reason for it, it’s just whichever way he happens to grab your hand or you grab his 
  • Hand holding is mainly for when you guys are walking around somewhere
  • He’s a busy man and he needs both of his hands when he’s working on his music or he’s got his phone in his hands and although he does have moments at home where he’ll hold your hand, it’s just not as likely
  • Like when you’re at home and it’s just you two, he’s much more likely to have his arm around your shoulders or your waist to hold you close
  • Okay but Yoongi is a really good hugger fight me on this it’s such a strong head canon
  • He’s a back rubber just picture this for a minute, think about it bc it’s so precious
  • Lil yoongi holding you really close, probably having some pillow talk bc that’s one of his favorites and his hand is just slowly rubbing your back, it’s all really gentle, really soft, it’s really comforting to both of you and it’s a v v loving action bc he knows it helps you fall asleep
  • Really really really loves hugs when he’s stressed out
  • There are a few types of hugs when it comes to Yoongi okay I’m gonna go through them bc these are very important
  • The first hug isn’t so much of a hug, it’s pretty quick, usually just one arm going around the other, it’s normally when he’s distracted with something or he’s tired and is really focused on getting to bed, it’s the hello hug when one of you get home
  • There’s the long hug where he’s holding you really tightly and you’re both whispering even though no one else is there to hear you but it’s mainly when he’s just gotten back from tour or he’s leaving for tour and you just need to hold each for a while
  • There are the back hugs when he’s busy and focused on something else and you’re just giving him a hug to let him know you’re there if he needs you or when you’re surprising him somewhere and sneak up on him to hug him and he just gets this really soft smile when he sees it’s you
  • He does it a lot, where he’ll just have his chin on your shoulder while you’re doing something else and you wonder if he’s falling asleep bc you feel his head getting heavier and heavier, sometimes he has fallen asleep, sometimes he’s just getting comfortable
  • And then there are the serious hugs where he’s had a really bad day or you’ve had a really bad day and it’s all quiet and has a lot of his hand clinging onto your shirt or yours onto his, an occasional “shhh it’s okay” a lot of hair stroking, back rubbing, just a lot of comforting
  • It’s one of the moments where he’s not being sarcastic, he doesn’t have some witty comeback, he’s just opening up completely and letting you in bc he just needs to be held for a while
  • An A+ cuddler tbh
  • He’s not very picky about how you two cuddle, it’ll mainly depend on how you two lay down
  • It can be your head on his chest, his on yours, a spooning situation
  • HE IS A LIL SPOON
  • He loves being lil spoon, it’s one of his favorites, tied with your having your head on his chest 
  • Can you just imagine that for a minute, being able to come home and have yoon be your lil spoon bc we’ve all seen him doing the curling up thing and I just have to picture him as a lil spoon when he’s like that
  • Whines about being cuddled but then whines even more when you let him go
  • Kisses are saved for when it’s just you two, he may give you a quick kiss, more of a peck, in front of the boys but it’s most likely to happen when it’s just you two
  • His kisses are normally more of the meaningful kisses that go on until you gotta stop for air, they’re the kisses that make you feel really loved and have the silent “I love you” written all over them
  • He may give the occasional quick kiss, mainly when there are other people around as I mentioned up there, but all of his kisses are normally the longer kisses that make any hint of a doubt that he loves you go away instantly 
  • Studio makeouts
  • Big big fan of forehead kisses, they’re the most frequent
  • Or hand kisses, he’ll kiss your hand a lot when he’s busy and he knows you’re waiting for him to finish up so you two can go eat some dinner so he kisses the back of your hand as a silent “I’m sorry this is taking so long”
  • Onto PDA levels
  • Kisses are always saved for private, if you do sneak a kiss in public, he’s gonna get really !!!! and flustered but try to pretend like it didn’t affect him
  • If it’s just the boys though, he’ll probably have the opposite reaction and get cocky and do that shrug thing he does with the smirk when they tease him even though deep deep down he’s gonna be !!! bc Yoongi’s a softie and you just kissed him in front of people
  • Hand holding is always an occurrence bc he doesn’t want to get separated from you
  • Hugging is okay in public, depending on the hug, if it’s just one of the “we’re both standing here and you’re close enough for me to hug so I’m gonna hug you” hugs, he’s got no problem with that
  • He likes to ruffle your hair to mess it up as he walks by you just to hear the “Yoongi!!” he gets from you and you can bet anything he’s laughing his ass off as he’s walking away
  • “It’s a cold day, you forgot your jacket at home and I was in the area so here”
  • “Yoongi, your work is twenty minutes in the opposite direction”
  • “I stopped by here to get a coffee”
  • “You have a cafe right next to your office?? Did you just drive twenty minutes out of your way to give me a jacket??”
  • “…no”
  • Yoongi has a very loved filled type of affection, it’s how he expresses his love most of the time bc actions speak louder than words

  • - Random ‘’animals on the street’ snaps
