Turkey Larb-Inspired Bowls with Coconut Rice 🦃🥥🍚

@Katy Lamothe thought this one smelled a little off, so I had both and she ordered a Big Mac. If I die, it was probably food poisoning.


Mediterranean-Inspired Basa Bowls with Couscous and Roasted Veggies 🐟🥒🧅🍅

@Katy Lamothe was starting to get sick of rice dishes, so we decided to go with a couscous dish today instead.


Sticky Hoisin Pork Tacos with Cabbage Slaw 🐖🌮

Don't think I've ever put rice in a taco before, but it worked.

Shallow Fried Chicken Katsu with Sesame BBQ Sauce and Garlic Bok Choy 🐔🧄

We actually own a deep fryer which would have probably made this easier to make, but hauling it out is kind of a pain. We managed to slightly burn one of the pieces, but it was still edible.

This one was quite different taste-wise from the other things we've gotten from this meal kit. While i generally like the past meals we've had, it was a welcome change.


Triple Cheese Pasta Bake with Peppers and Baby Spinach 🧀🧀🧀

Another vegetarian dish today. We were a little worried because the caserole dish we had was a little under-sized, but it worked anyways. The end result was delicious, but the onion could've been cooked a touch longer. We'll know for next time.


Mediterranean-Inspired Chicken with Orzo Salad and Feta Vinaigrette 🐔🥗

Being a salad, this one was supposed to be served cold. We served it hot, because we do what we want! The chicken was cooked to perfection, and the orzo was just a slight bit al dente, which is what we were going for.


I just realized why the face on this thing was triggering something in my brain. It's got kind of a Bubs-esque vibe.

Found a new hot dog cart on the way home from the hospital. They were easy to miss, but they found a solution to that problem.

Easy Beef Unstuffed Peppers with Chili Cumin Tomato Sauce 🐄🫑🌶️🍅

I love stuffed peppers, so I jumped at this one. It was every bit as delicious as I thought it would be. @Katy Lamothe was was worried she wouldn't like them. This turned out not to be a problem.


Also, today's meal kit came with a mysterious tube of chicken.

Tex-Mex Turkey Poblano Pasta with Rigatoni 🦃🌶️

This is the dish that @Katy Lamothe's been excited all week about. The pasta, which Katy lovingly calls throats, was a little al dente, but I wasn't mad about it. It kind of worked.

Chorizo Patty Melts with Sweet Potato Wedges and Slaw 🍔🍟

Okay, so here's the thing: the burger was amazing, but I'm coming to the conclusion that while the fries were okay, the best you can hope for with fries from an oven is just... okay. That's really my only criticism of this dish though. The burger and slaw were top-notch.


Chili Lentil Burrito Bowls with Pico de Gallo 🌶️🌯

So, this was supposed to be with pico de gallo and avocado, but the avocado that came in the meal kit was crazy under-ripe. The funny part is that we made this one fairly quickly because we were worried about the opposite happening.

Avocado difficulties aside, this was a vegetarian dish, but if you'd blindfolded me and fed it to me (and I hadn't helped to make it) you could totally have convinced me that this had ground beef. Magic can be done with the right spices.


Sweet and Spicy Japanese-Style Pork Rice Bowls 🇯🇵🐖🍚

This recipe yeilded far more of the pickled carrot than was pictured. I don't know what I'm going to do with all the extra. It's delicious but...

Apart from that, it was another outstanding dish. When I do have to cook meat, I prefer when it's ground, because it's easier to tell if it's been cooked long enough to not kill me.

That's always a bonus.


Just came across his video on the strengths of the Fediverse in dealing with hate speech. If you haven't seen it already, it's an interesting watch.

Decentralized Social Networks vs the Trolls

The ActivityPub protocol powers a vast, decentralized social netwwork called the Fediverse. How does content moderation play out in a social network so different from centralized platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Users of Mastodon, Peertube, Pixelfed, Pleroma, Misskey and Write Freely - and others besides - have a unique experience dealing with bad actors.

This video explores how admins and activists across the Fediverse worked over a year to isolate and reject the far-right social network Gab when it joined in June 2019. Through a mix of codes of conduct, human moderation, strong moderation tools, and good old fashioned activism to block bad actors at the instance level, bad actors like Gab are systematically containtained in their own private sphere.

This video essay relies on conversations with 80 people, including network admins, moderators, hate speech monitors, and every day users, as well as a survey of 674 network members.

Creamy Pesto Chicken with Buttery Orzo 🐔

This was another fairly simple dish, yet once again, despite it's simplicity it was amazingly delicious. I worried that the garlic spice blend was going to overtake the dish, but as usual all the flavours complmented eachother so nicely.


Coconut Lentil Curry with Crispy Shallots and Cilantro 🥥🍛

Long before I even tasted this one, I expected by the way it smelled that it was going to be amazing. I was not mistaken.


@smellsofbikes I've got a MicroSD card that has adaptors to turn it into either a full-sized SD card, or a USB drive.

Also, this is what it looked like about 20 seconds after that picture was taken.

Chipotle Pulled Chicken Bowls with Guac and Marinated Tomatoes 🌶️🐔🥑🍅

Let me paint you a picture with my words. This dish was such a perfect balance of sour and salty with just a hint of spiciness. I was worried that we might've overcooked the chicken, but it just melted in my mouth.

I definitely want to make this one again.

Buttery Pan-Seared Golden Basa with Ginger Infused Rice and Veggies 🧈🐟🍚🥒🧅

Okay. I've had people tell me that meal kits are a waste of money, but I never in a million years would've thought to mix lime juice and honey to make the sauce that was drizzled on this.

Banh Mi-Inspired Pork Burgers with Oven Fries and Gochujang Mayo 🐖🍔🍟

The gochujang mayo gave this a nice kick, but also served as an amazing dipping sauce for the fries.


It'll likely vary, but here's how it showed up for me:

Sweet Firecracker Turkey Meatballs with Zesty Rice 🎆🦃🍚

These were not as spicy as I was expecting "firecracker" turkey meatballs to be, but they were still quite flavourful. To be honest though, sometimes when food is too spicy, it tends to overwhelm the actual flavour.

Cheese Omlette with Bacon and English Muffin 🧀🍳🥓

@Katy Lamothe really wanted a cheese omlette today. We only had those processed cheese slices, but I work with what I've got. Would've been better with real cheese, but it was decent.

I took a picture of Katy's plate, because hers came out looking nicer than mine.


BBQ Black Been Taquitos with Guacamole 🥑

Another vegetarian recipe today. It's actually rather nice to not have to handle raw meat when preparing the food.

Anyhow, my first bite was rather tortilla-forward, and I was worried that they were only going to be so-so tasting. Those fears were completely unfounded.


Chili-Cumin Seared Chicken Tacos with Cabbage and Corn Slaw 🌶️🐔🌮🌽

We were going to do another vegetarian recipe today, but @Katy Lamothe decided she wanted meat tonight. This was a pretty simple recipe, but the flavours really played well together.

It's such a gorgeous day, I think I'll set my # up outside today. 🌞

Smoky Poblano Chili with Cheesy Croutons and Sour Cream 🌶️

This one was another vegeterian dish, and it didn't disappoint. The ciabatta buns that came in the kit had actually gone mouldy, but they were sealed in plastic and the rest was fine. Nothing a quick trip to the grocery store couldn't fix.

The end result was delightful.
