Weekend Chill, With Home Prepared Meals ๐Ÿฝ #DashOutSunday

in #foodie โ€ข 7 months ago

Wanted to post about my "chill" weekend way earlier than today, that looking back was filled with me trying to meet a deadline. Which means that my weekend and Monday weren't as chill as I would like to believe, but if you compare it to our December calendar it was pretty relaxed.

Sunday (and Saturday also actually) should've been my off day as far as school's concerned, but I wanted to turn in some documents as soon as possible, so I also used those days to work on the papers. I worked almost the whole Saturday on them, which is why I was able to wake up well rested and energized.

So we spend our Sunday morning making a whole breakfast (brunch really ๐Ÿ˜…) platter, consisting of scrambled eggs, spicy (leftover) sausages from Saturday, rissoles and fish sticks. I tried the eggs with ginger, pepper, a hint of soy sauce and scallions, which was delicious to my surprise.

The fish sticks and rissoles came out of the freezer and were put in a small electric oven. For some time now, we've been baking snacks that are usually being fried in the oven, to "save" on propane and I think it started because we didn't have a stove back then. Remarkably enough, the texture didn't differ much from frying.

After that, I was back behind my desk. Because we didn't have any leftovers left from December, we had to whip something up. I had some unprepared cassava in the freezer - I was taught to store it that way, if it's not immediately cooked - a smoked fish and some string beans.

I did all the prep work and @rarej prepared the fish and string beans. Knowing that the cassava would be taking much longer, I was only in charge of those. The cassava had to be boiled first, cut into smaller pieces and then fried twice in oil. It's not a technique I was taught by my elders, but it works for us if we want that golden brown crispy texture. To my family's defense they have a cast iron wok, that we have yet to invest in.

So that's how we spend our weekend: no social event, but getting back on track with school and recharging from December. How was your weekend? Let me know in the comments below ๐Ÿค“.

Had no idea what a rissoles was.

The over fried saves you health too ๐Ÿ˜

What are you studying BTW?

That was also one of the added benefits, which made us decide to keep on baking in the oven, once we had our stove.

What are you studying BTW?

A social studies major (agogic science), with a minor in psychology. It has to do with guiding people/companies/groups in changing processes, whether it's a change coming from outside of their control or a change they want to make themselves.

This sound like the perfect major and minor for the times, as A LOT OF changes are taking place and are gonna take place that displace tunz of companies and peeps. And another good thing is you seeing and using the blockchain.

Exactly what I was thinking, but didn't ant to toot my own horn ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ™ˆ.

That's right! I really would like to tell everyone I know about Hive, but majority of Suriname's not ready for blockchain or cryptocurrency. Because most don't understand it yet, they'll assume it's a scam, so we need to be careful who to tell about Hive here.

There has already been too much ENGAGE today.

๐Ÿ˜ƒYummy yum yum. I havenโ€™t had cassava in a while. I mostly spent the weekend at home. I did a little cooking but nothing special. I canโ€™t even remember what I cooked. Lol!!๐Ÿ˜‚

I did a little cooking but nothing special.

It's usually those home cooked meals we tend to miss when we move out, especially those cooked by our (grand)parents.

I can imagine. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
