I think we all can get behind the proposition that food is pretty allright. Having it is a bonus, not having it is a death sentence. Quality of food, however, is an entirely different subject. Especially if it has to be done on a clock – that’s why I despise Master Chef and the ilk, time crunch makes the food taste worse.
I thought this community, if you can call a “community” a bunch of non-progressive degenerates, that I firmly belong to, might appreciate a topic away from whatever shit is happening in the world today, and talk about what they eat. Call it, “I support the current feed” movement.
Last weekend, I did a batch of Boston clam chowder, albeit with certain substitutions. No clams, so NZ mussels. So, maybe, Wellington clam chowder. Hearty and filling, and just right for the crap winter weather here in WA. Shared it with my co-workers whom have never been in US, nor heard of clams, and it was a hit.

This week, to support our struggling brothers and sisters in Ukraine, I am making borscht, specifically, a Russian version of it – no potatoes. After reading lots of recipes and internet shit-fights over who owned what tradition, I thought potatoes were not going to go well with the rest, so call me a Putin-lover. Again, stock image, not my version.
For next week, I have scheduled an absolute delicacy of all things BBQ – Brunswick stew! I pity ye if ye haven’t had this delicious remains of every BBQ in Georgia, USA! Flavours, texture, smell, and a hint of the hot sauce! I highly recommend.
All three of the above are fairly easy to make, just give yourself time and don’t rush. Good food is like making love, and you’ll get the leftovers that are still tasty.
