I’m curious. What are the, say, top 5 things you associate with me?
Can be a tumblr user, a book, movie, character, actor etc.
I see no difference
Neither Courage Wolf nor Calming Manatee were doing much to help my anxiety, but I knew they were both on to something.
So, I created Calmage Wolfatee.
This is glorious beyond my capacity to comprehend.
Nothing could have made this day better but this
I’m not saying that I’m an amazing actor but i HAVE won as many Oscars as Leonardo DiCaprio
let’s be honest we’re all just reblogging that as long as we still can
Oh yeah well I’ve won as many as Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt combined.
Healthier Alternatives to your eating habits.
I haven’t tried all of these, so I can’t vouch. I know for my tuna salad that I make I do a mix of olive oil and mustard instead of mayo, but I don’t know in what universe Mustart is a straight up alternative to Mayonnaise.
For Salads, Avocado and Almonds are a great way to beef up the salad without adding bread!
This is pretty awesome
I can vouch for quinoa. I will have to try the others. Quinoa is expensive though. Makes me wonder how hard to find/ expensive some of these are.
Red Beans and Quinoa
This is another recipe I got from Vegan Comfort Food byAlicia Simpson. I left out some of the vegan substitutions though so it’s only vegetarian. For those of you that aren’t familiar with it, here’s the wiki page for quinoa.
- 1 cup diced yellow onion
- 1 cup diced green bell pepper
- Oil for sautéing
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4 cans of kidney beans
- 1 cup BBQ sauce (I thought this was actually a bit much, I might recommend reducing the amount)
- 3 tsp hot sauce (up this if you want an actual kick)
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- Spices of your choosing (I went with garlic pepper, cumin, cayenne red pepper powder and a few others)
- 4 cups cooked quinoa
First off you cook quinoa just like you cook rice. Unfortunately I made a rookie mistake. Rice about doubles in volume when you cook it. Quinoa is closer to triple in volume cooked. What you see in the picture is more like 6 cups. 4 would probably be a better amount.
To cook it simply sauté the onions and bell peppers until their almost done and then add in the garlic cloves and cook for another minute. Next mix in everything else except the quinoa and cook over medium to medium high heat until it is an even temperature throughout.
The original recipe says serve everything over top of the quinoa instead of mixing it in. I personally like mixing it in, but it’s your call.
This dish keeps very well, tastes good, and is filling. I recommend it if you’re looking for healthy and satisfying food. Though I’d cut down on the BBQ sauce if you want it really healthy.
I went to watch some roller derby this saturday. It was the 4th bout I’ve been too. It was a lot of fun. The first bout was the Hell Marys vs. The Hustlers.
Here’s the Hell Marys blocking a the Hustlers’ Jammer.
Here a picture where if you look close you can see the Hustlers’ jammer is a blur on the inside of the track.
The second bout was the Hotrod Honeys vs. the Honkey Tonk Heartbreakers. I was rooting for the Heartbreakers, but they got crushed.
Here’s the Heartbreakers’ jammer trying to cut around the inside of the Hotrod blockers.
Here’s the Hotrod Honeys doing warmup laps.
Finally here are a few shots of the crowd gathered for the bout. I only got the half I wasn’t sitting on. Just to give you an idea that derby is pretty popular here in Austin.
If you’re in Austin, Texas or nearby I recommend you come out for the next bout. It’s going to be March 22nd at the Austin Convention Center.
