@ℹ️❀️πŸ–₯ aka Compy-chan This kinda reminds me of the rickroll animated gif where each frame was a valid QR code that pointed to the video in question. For the life of me I can't find the original gif, but I could find this one frame. The animated version was much more impressive.

@Low Quality Facts Well, at least we know they'll make it to the 22nd century.

Well, I'm definitely no longer having issues getting my #sourdough starter to rise. I have invested in a larger jar into which I will transfer it on the next feeding.

Started a fresh batch with some of the feedback I got. This is roughly 10 hours after the first feeding. This is similar to the result I got on previous attempts, except that it nearly wouldn't rise at all on subsequent feedings.

The recipe called for the second feeding to be 24 hours after the first, and then every 12 hours thereafter.

I'm going to try at the 12 hour mark though, since I think the problem was that it had starved by the 24h mark. I'm also using bread flour this time instead of all purpose. I started with whole wheat, because it's what I had on hand, and my wife might murder me if I tell her I need to get yet another variety of flour. πŸ™ƒ

Is this common for a first feeding? My apartment tends to be quite warm, FWIW.

Are you familiar with this variety of oolong?

Why does every job description I look at lately look like this?

@Jonathan (he/him) I have to admit, this confused me for a minute.

When we adopted @Benny, the Humane Society game us a voucher for a free month's worth of his food. This order was cancelled and re-ordered twice (for a total of three orders) due to an "ordering error". This arrived today. Guess we're good for three months now.

@Benny has decided that @Katy Lamothe's hair elastics are toys, and that they belong in his water dish.

This is what happens when you make coasters out of leather and then they get wet. You literally had one job.

Just got to meet the potential newest addition to our family today. Fediverse, I want to introduce you to Benny. If all goes well, we'll be taking him home tomorrow.

I had to take the photo from behind a glass pane. It doesn't do him justice.

Asian Beef Lettuce Wraps

Having learned from out last crock pot meals, we tweaked this recipe a little bit as we went. These were delicious, but a little messy. Entirely worth it, though.

Stuffed Peppers

These ones were a little more involved, but not that much, and mostly on the prep side. As with a lot of these crock pot meals, it could've done with a bit more seasoning, but only very slightly. One of the better ones so far.
