I spent a lot of time on programming side projects in 2016. I'm finishing this post up in 2017 after writing the bulk of the text, so please forgive any confusing year references.
There are always things I'm tinkering with. Until recently, it's been silly scripts and my …
My last Zelda blog post covered Zelda 1, The Adventure of Link, and Link to the Past. This post will cover the delightful Game Boy Zelda game Link's Awakening.
4. Link's Awakening (1993)
I've wanted to play Link's Awakening for years, but I've never gotten around to it. I knew …
I've been a fan of Zelda games for a long time. I played other games before I picked up anything from this series, but Zelda games are still some of my earliest video game memories. I can remember a bit of Ocarina of Time I played on a cousin's N64 …
More fun with grilled cheese sandwiches!
I hate all salads, so I skipped making the cucumber and endive salad.
I loved it.
I'd love to have this again.
I really liked this meal.
I knew the goat cheese …
I made some delicious noodles.
I've held on to a bunch of Blue Apron ingredients for a while, and even thrown some out because they were starting to go. Yesterday, I finally found some motivation to actually cook something for the first time in a while.
I started ordering Blue Apron again.
I also forgot to set the meals for my order before it shipped, so I was real worried I'd get stuff I didn't want to eat. The meals they picked out for me seem okay, though.
Today's meal was "Muffuletta-Style Grilled Cheese Sandwiches". I've …
I adopted a cat! I've become comfortable enough in my Adult Life that I was sure I could properly take care of a pet. I also have been wanting a pet for a while.
I adopted from the Nine Lives Foundation in Redwood City. I specifically adopted from them because …
Nonsense Part 2
More making food before ingredients went bad. Pizza dough with avocados, onions, tomato paste, mozzarella, and some other kind(s) of cheese I forget.
Also, I'm going to be on Blue Apron hiatus for a while. I've had my fill of making food more complicated than sandwiches …
Nonsense Part 1
I've been too lazy to make Blue Apron meals for too long and the food was starting to go bad, so I rushed to put it together and make something approaching food. Result: two eggs, jack cheese, and olive oil on baguette pieces, and corn tortillas fried …
Adobo-Style Chicken Without Bok Choy (and rice)
Not bad. My bok choy seemed like it had gone bad (I have a Blue Apron backlog at this point), so I tossed it, which made preparation a bit easier. There was a bunch of chopping to do for this meal …
Triple Pork Mazemen with Roasted Garlic & Pea Tips
Fairly easy. Only a few veggies to chop. Most of the difficulty was the timing of cooking the various ingredients. I finished cooking the noodles before the ground beef/sauce was ready so I let them set, and they turned …
Hoison & Shittake Burgers With Sweet Potato Spears
Not that difficult. Lots of veggies to prepare, the mushrooms had to be soaked (and later thinly sliced), and my ground beef was in the freezer, so it had to be defrosted. That was all pretty easy, though.
Amount Meal Resembles …
I'm going to try to turn this into a Blue Apron cooking blog, for lack of better ideas.
Kimchi & Barley Miso Ramen
Lots of stuff to do at the same time. Lots of veggies to prepare, lots of water to boil. My stove doesn't boil water well unless …
