My new cooking tutorial: Moomin Mushroom Stew. (CC) It’s a simple, easy, quick and super yummy recipe to make! The recipe says you only need 300g of mushrooms, but I actually used around 1500g! It has a really nice, creamy taste to it and if you add rosette potatoes, it gives it a very nice, round taste :)

I’m gonna try going full on vegetarian for a while, or at least 90% vegetarian, since I refuse to stop using chicken stock when cooking rice and potatoes and such. My stomach has just been way too sensitive to meat lately :((( I picked up The Accidental Vegetarian today since it was in the bargain section of B&N’s, but if anyone else has any good vegetarian books/websites/recipes to recommend, I’d love to hear them!

Edit: I should also add that one of the fun things about my particular case of Crohns Disease is I can’t eat raw fruits and vegetables without OMG PAIN so most salads are right out. Breads and pastas are basically my go to right now for food, but I should probably eat things other than carbs all day every day.
