I'm a big old dummy. I made some black bean and sausage soup in my slow cooker today. The problem is that it called for about half of a package of sausage. So I cooked up the part that was supposed to go in the soup, but I didn't know what to do with the rest. I already had the pan there, with sausage grease in it, so I cooked it and ate it. Now my soup is finished, but I already filled up on sausage.

Well, the soup should be able to keep for at least a few days, right?

That was already the plan, but this was the first time I've made this soup and I was looking forward to trying it out. Now that has to wait until tomorrow. The couple of spoonfuls I had while putting out in containers was fine.

I should have saved that sausage for breakfast.

Taiyaki is such a delightfully silly confectionery

I’m furious the Instant Pot makes better rice than my expensive Asian rice cooker
Quote:
Like anything with a modicum of mainstream popularity, my reaction to the Instant Pot was initially dismissive. “I know how to cook,” I convinced myself, “I don’t need no novelty gimmicks to make good food.” Nevertheless, I bought one for work. Skepticism still coursed through my veins. But after just one batch of fork-tender pot roast in 45 minutes, the rest, as they say, was happily ever after.

Still, there was one threshold I refused to allow the Instant Pot to cross. It involved my trusted rice cooker—an extremely Asian rice cooker—a futuristic appliance you’d mock me for owning if you knew how much I paid for it. (It plays a song when it’s done cooking!) Rice was the last frontier, and I wasn’t about to allow this $70 Instant Pot to usurp my [grumble grumble]-dollar Zojirushi from Outer Space.

Well, what do you know.

This stupid $70 appliance invented in Canada makes the superior rice.

Better. And quicker.

Yay, taiyaki! We got one of those makers a few years ago after falling in love with them in Japan, although it's pretty rare that we bust it out. I find it's really hard to keep the filling from exploding out through the pastry shell. Still, they're fun and tasty.

I am amused with the recent fascination with "instant pots" as if they just appeared? Maybe they've become cheaper and more accessible lately, but we've been nominally using self-contained pressure cookers for decades.

Is this yet another "tag yourself" situation?

I bought gochujang sauce a few days ago. It was cheap, I thought, so what the hell. Problem is, I tasted a little bit of the stuff, and I have absolutely no idea what to do with it. What would work well with this? It's got so many different flavors going on you'd swear Willy Wonka made it.

I bought some chili lime fried chickpeas while I was out shopping and they are both aggressively bland and highly caloric. :-/

This can of soup says "Prepared soup, if not consumed immediately, must be kept refrigerated and consumed within 24 hours".

I am going to defy that order and wait 48 hours.

Garlic Week at The Takeout

This Is 40... clove garlic chicken

Quote:
I’ve been waiting my whole life for Garlic Week. There is absolutely no chance that I’m a vampire, nor is there any possibility of a future romance with a vampire, because they would surely be adversely affected by my whole person. I don’t think I could even be pals with a vampire, because forced to choose between a new drinking buddy and garlic... I would choose garlic. Not even a choice, really. Garlic, all the way. And that’s what makes 40 Clove Garlic Chicken such a favorite of mine. The chicken is delicious, but the garlic? All forty cloves of it are perfection.

So when The Takeout asked me if I wanted to make 40 Clove Garlic Chicken for Garlic Week, my only question was if I was limited to 40. The chance to pick and choose my favorite bits of some recipes I love and combine them into my own personal garlic fest was one I found, yes, delicious.

I read Make the Bread, Buy the Butter recently and it was pretty interesting! One thing I do want to try from there is making my own vanilla extract. I just got a coupon to the local spice store and we have a lot of rum and vodka to use up, but any other tips? People seem to have very strong opinions about the amount of beans in the liquid and the amount of time it should sit.
