Everyone that knows me, knows I am a workaholic. I’m always working. I rarely sit down and watch TV or sports without my laptop. Even when I don’t have my laptop, and am out for a walk or something, I’m always thinking about work. I think that’s one reason I love cooking so much – because I really “get away” from it all, and lose myself in cooking.
I’m not a chef, nor do I pretend to be. I don’t go through recipe books, and make Swordfish or anything like that. I’m never a fan of change – I stick with what I like, and I perfect it, then I make it over and over again.
Today was a great day, because I decided to make my vegetarian chili. This takes about 3-4 hours overall, and it also means I watch TV or movies while doing it. Today was an even better day because I started to watch the Sopranos, and I fucking LOVE it and am hooked, and it’s rare that I really get into a TV show like this. So yes, just a wonderful day all round.
Here are some pics of the vegetarian chili – I’ll type up the recipe another time – this is it cooking on the stove:
And inside that big mothafucking pot:
It may not look the greatest, but trust me it is absolutely fucking delicious, plus so good for you too. And if you enjoy farting – oh boy, with all the beans in it, THIS is the meal for you.
While waiting for it to cook I decided to make my patented peanut butter chocolate chip cookies:
The big empty space in the middle is because I couldn’t resist eating them before taking the picture lulz. So good.
Anyway, a nice relaxing, mentally refreshing day. I need more days like this.
