I am in POWER COOKING MODE today.

Currently in progress:

- MONSTER pot of Posole with terror-inspiring amounts of onion, garlic and pork

Will be starting shortly:

- Mediterranean Ragu sauce with meatballs; some sauce sans meat to be reserved for use with Spinach & Ricotta Tortellinni, and sauce-with-balls [*snerk!*] for straight-up spaghetti.

- Batch of yogurt; will make blueberry and strawberry-banana batches.

- Honey & Oatmeal Bread for sammiches and toast

Am also defrosting what looks to be about a 20 lb. turkey. Won't be doing anything with that for at least 4 or 5 days, but it will eventually be a bunch o' meat for sammiches, casseroles, soup, etc.

What the FUCK am I doing all this for, you ask?

Because school is about to start, and I have no intention of surviving off over-priced, over-processed, nasty-ass fast food even though I'm going to have very little time to cook. Going to be stocking my freezer with meal-sized portions that can be supplemented with fresh fruits and veggies along the way.

Plus, I just love going all psycho in the kitchen. Yeah, baby.

...does not have to mean living without pleasure.

Sliced avocado
Vine-ripened tomato
Fresh basil leaves
Stone-ground dill-champagne mustard (a simple honey dijon is really good, too)
A light spread of mayonaise (Nayonaise is better, if you have it)
Dash of sea-salt
Quick grind of pepper

Combine between slices of whole-grain bread, and you have heaven.

For next to nothing, it's totally possible to eat great, and even without cooking.

Yum....

Am making Posole for the first time today.

::glances into kitchen::

Correction: I am making a metric fuckton of Posole. For the first time.

If it turns out to be edible, and I know where you live - you were warned.

In fact, if I even have your mailing address you may be in for a surprise.

Because it looks like there will be roughly 2-1/2 gallons of this stuff by the time I'm finished.

Wow...

Eeep!
