Finally! Almond milk made without carrageenan! For those of your who don’t know, carrageenan is commonly added to milks, ice creams, and yogurts for its thickening qualities, but has been known to cause inflammation and gastrointestinal issues. Until today, I was fairly certain all dairy free milks contained carrageenan. For those of you following whole 30, the unsweetened version from Califia Farms would be compliant.
it was when i stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself i found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be a whole
“But Dad! Me and
Carly want chocolate milk,” Timothy whined, tugging on Dale’s hand.
With an exasperated sigh, Dale brought the shopping cart to
a halt in the middle of the freezer aisle. He hated chocolate milk, and didn’t
want Timothy drinking it. He considered giving the boy another lecture on the
nutritional benefits of the whole milk over chocolate, but decided against it.
It wasn’t worth the trouble of negotiating with a five year old. There are some
things children just don’t understand. He decided to compromise and get the two
Reaching for the door handle, Dale froze. Staring back at
him on the other side of the glass was Timothy, smiling back at him. A younger
photo of him, of course. Back when he had his natural hair color, before Dale
dyed it black. The bold red lettering printed on the carton twisted his stomach

A cold sweat ran down Dale’s forehead to the top of his
brow. She was sitting happily in the cart, enjoying her sippy cup. She was too

Timothy tugged at the bottom of his father’s jacket. “Dad! I

Dale yanked the door open and grabbed the chocolate milk,
quickly inspecting it. Mercifully absent of any more PSAs, he put it in the

You write SO MUCH, and if it takes me this amount of time to read through all of your stories, I can't even fathom how many hours you spent in front of the computer. Thank you so much for sharing your talent, I have just fallen in this fandom but I'm already hopelessly in love with you and Laura!
Ahaha hooray~ my goal here is to have fun creating an extensive body of work for people to be able to enjoy, so this makes me really glad. So happy you’ve found me and Laura already, thanks for comin’ along for the ride ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
YOU’RE SO WELCOME <3333 Thank you for reading our little monsters.
And again, shout out to anyone that hasn’t read The Show Must Go On - the V-Day fics are double sided! Nine and Sunny’s POV of this entire fiasco plays out in Laura’s story, the same way volleydick9′s makes up the plot of mine.
Check ‘em both out for maximum secondhand embarrassment. Also, Laura’s is way sexier than mine, since KageHina in that one are both, to borrow Hinata’s word for it, sexperts.
TBH Nine was definitely the most patient participant in this entire fiasco (which makes sense, considering in an alternate alternate universe, he’s the one who has to deal with Whole Milk on a daily basis, and he loves him anyway)
The whole idea to combine the two stories instead of just writing character swaps in each other’s verses started with the idea of volleydick9′s messages. Writing the banter back and forth was one of the most fun parts for me and Laura so it’s so awesome to hear it was enjoyed! Thank you <333
YESSS your ask popped into my inbox and i was like OH BOY BUCKAROONI do we have a surprise for you anon
BakingWithBooks Does Whole30 - “Tandoori” Roast Chicken with Coconut Curry Sauce and Cucumber Tomato Salad
This is a Whole30 compliant version of Tandoori chicken. It is by no means authentic because there is no yogurt, and I don’t have a tandoori oven, but trust me when I say that the flavor is incredible.
Ingredients for the Chicken
1 whole chicken - about 5-6 lbs
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp turmeric
Equal parts: ground ginger, garam masala, granulated onion and garlic
1-2 tbsp tomato paste
Juice from a lime
1 lime, quartered, 2 whole cloves garlic, and ½ onion for stuffing inside
Extra virgin olive oil and more kosher salt and pepper
Kitchen twine for tying the legs
Ingredients for the Coconut Curry Sauce
½ of a 13.5 fl oz. can of coconut milk
1 ½ tbsp red curry paste
2 sprigs of mint, finely chopped
Juice from ¼ lime and ¼ lemon
½ tsp kosher salt
2 pitted dates
Directions for Chicken
Clean the chicken, removing any giblets and kidneys from the inside and thoroughly pat dry with paper towels.
In one bowl, mix the chili powder, paprika, turmeric together. Add just enough lime juice so that mixture becomes a paste.
Make gashes (not deep) in the chicken skin and slather the paste all over the bird. Each part of the bird should be covered. If you need more paste, feel free to make more.
Marinate in the fridge for about 2 hours.
Make another paste (without lime juice) with the garam masala, ginger, granulated garlic and onion with the tomato paste. This is going to give the chicken incredible flavor along with the intense red color that Tandoori chicken is known for.
Slather this paste all over the front of the chicken and return to marinate for another hour.
Remove the chicken from the fridge and let it come to room temperature for about 30-40 minutes, and preheat your oven to 420 degrees Fahrenheit.
Season the inside of the chicken very generously with kosher salt and pepper. Stuff it with the lime, onion, and garlic, and tie the legs with kitchen twine.
About 5-10 minutes before your bird is ready to go into the oven, heat extra virgin olive oil in a cast iron skillet over high heat. You want it to sizzle when a dash of water is added.
Once the oil is heated, add the bird, breast-side up into the skillet and let sear for about 4-5 minutes.
Place into the oven to roast. Take it out when the breast meat reads 155 degrees Fahrenheit and the thigh meat reads about 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Let the chicken rest before carving for about 20-25 minutes. Make the sauce while you’re doing this.
Directions for Coconut Curry Sauce
Combine all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.
Strain through a fine sieve to remove any lumps. Taste for seasoning and adjust to your likeness. The sauce is meant to be rich, slightly spicy, and very faintly sweet.
Garnish with cilantro.
The cucumber and tomato salad is lightly dressed with sea salt, pepper, red vinegar, and light olive oil.
