Less rice?! Speak for yourself.

[–] [email protected] 47 points 3 weeks ago

Absolute blasphemy.

How else will i have left over rice for fried rice if I make just enough?

[–] [email protected] 14 points 3 weeks ago

Yeah what the fuck is this? I've only had too much rice with a meal once or twice in my entire life

[–] [email protected] 40 points 3 weeks ago (2 children)

The spinach part at least is true if you cook fresh spinach. Those leaves will just evaporate.

[–] [email protected] 13 points 3 weeks ago

The correct size is many many handfuls or one bag for most dishes

So is the violence part. Hitler wasn't defeated with a sit in. The elite chose violence back in the 1950's to destroy unions. Corrupt governments were never overthrown by asking nicely. The term "speak softly, but carry a big stick" wasn't made up for no reason.

Sorry summer person, I need to get inside a tight bed while it's freezing outside to make my problems go away

[–] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

Oh I like that too I agree. A weighted blanket when it's -20 in January and you don't have to go outside is wonderful.

[–] [email protected] 21 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

I like to think these are a sequence.

[–] [email protected] 20 points 3 weeks ago

Can confirm.

For lunch I had spinach and rice soup (extra spinach), while sitting outside in the sun with a nice cup of tea. Then I punched a Nazi.

It was a good day.

Also if something calls for garlic cloves you triple whatever number it says.

[–] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

Triple? In our galley, "1 clove" —> 1 bulb.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

I tend to put garlic in even when there's none at all in the recipe. Making pancakes? Stuff those fuckers with a metric fuckton of the good stuff. I may be exaggerating slightly.

You've awaken the inner Asian within me and I will rip you apart if you dare trash talk about rice.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

That's legit.

Really depends on the tea for me. I could go for a nice raspberry green tea.

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago (4 children)

...you can make tea out of raspberries?

[–] [email protected] 8 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

You can make tea out of nearly any plant. They are infusions rather than true tea but raspberry leaf or sprig tea is damn tasty

[–] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

Raspberry leaf, hibiscus, and rosehips. Citrus peel instead of rosehips if you prefer a more fruity blend. Cold press with a teaspoon or two of wildflower honey, add a mint leaf for freshness and you have wonderfully refreshing summertime tea. Add boba for the kids and they don't mind the low sugar content!

I'm not fancy enough to have all of this, but I have raspberries, mint, and honey. Time to experiment

edit: I am getting so many good tips here, I'll see if I can make something to post on Lemmy at a later date

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Cheese cloth works works amazingly well to wrap your leaves in, no cold press necessary!

[–] [email protected] 6 points 3 weeks ago

Is it really worth to massacre these innocent Raspberry Pi's just to make tea out of them?

[–] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

Raspberry leaves specifically. It's wonderful!

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

Sure. With raspberries you can use dried berries, leafs, roots. It's a pretty versatile plant.

You can also make tea out of gummi bears too https://www.thesweetsbarn.net/product/gummy-bear-tea/86

Again: put stuff in hot water and let it soak. Strain said stuff and you have what is loosely defined as tea.

I probably wouldn't do used radial tire tea, but if that's what floats your boat, knock yourself out.

[–] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago (2 children)

Its hot flavor water. What's not to love?

[–] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago (2 children)

Honestly, I think I have a bit of sensitivity to the tannins. Gives me an unsettled stomach.

[–] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

Oh yeah, I guess that would do it.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

It only gives me nausea on an empty stomach, have you tried after a meal?

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Do you like iced tea?

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

Violence is never an answer...

Violence is the question and the answer is YES.
