Today I played a game of What Can I Cook Without Going To The Store. I was really happy with the result, so I figured I'd pass it along.

Quick Navy Bean Soup

In other news, Tumblr's new posting interface is the worst, it's less buggy today than it was last night, but I still hate it. Evidently IE doesn't support it, but I can't decide if I hate it enough to use IE.

Snowflake Challenge, Day 7

In your own space, share something non-fannish about yourself. A passion or a hobby or a talent, something that people might not know about you. We are more than just our fandoms.

Some of you already know this, because I post recipes from time to time, but I love to cook. Which is kind of weird when I think about it, because I'm a terribly lazy person in general, and cooking from scratch requires a lot of time and patience and prep work. I find that sort of thing irritating in other areas of my life, but I don't mind peeling potatoes for ten minutes if I'm going to get some soup out of it in the end.

I think I really just enjoy it on a creative level. A good 50% of my meals start out as 'what can I make with a bag of X, a can of Y, and some leftover Z,' or 'I should probably finish A and B before it goes bad.' I also have a tendency to treat recipes as basic guidelines. I'm more or less vegan, but I find vegan websites and magazines super frustrating for a whole myriad of reasons, the biggest being that their recipes are usually written by people with unlimited means. I can't afford pink Himalayan rock salt or virgin Peruvian saffron threads, or whatever. I'm also not a big fan of fake meat, so. I usually look at one of their recipes and say 'that looks good, let's see if I can do it with ramen noodles and canned peas.'

Since I have you here, below follows my recipe for Black Beans and Brown Rice. It's super easy, and if you use boil-in-bag rice, it's also super quick.

One of my numerous New Year's Resolutions is to eat out less and rely less on pre-packaged foods. Thusly, I've been cooking quite a bit over the last week. I know it's not exactly salad season, but I've been making a lot of salads, anyway. Mainly because they're so easy to throw together, but also, it's terribly hot here.

Here, have some salad recipes. All of them are vegan.
