cooking up indoobness


Go ahead and ask me…

Where the stank have I been?

What’s the deal with the missing friPod post?

Am I actually cooking anything?

What am I doing?

What did I get my mom for Mom’s Day?

Simmer down, Indoobians, I’d be happy to tell you all that and more. I could have asked myself more assumed questions, but I told myself to hold off on all the questions for now. I shall answer them as they arise.

Truth be told, I didn’t really go anywhere. I’ve mostly been in my room watching a really cool chef by the name of Todd Mohr. His series is called “Cooking Coarse” with the pun intended. He doesn’t teach recipes, but instead, the methods behind them so you can create your own magic in the kitchen. It was so inspiring that I created a saute BBQ pork meal, that took two days to make. (Two days prior to the cooking, I was preparing and marinating the meat. Food was already prepared for the following day, so that meant extra marinade time, and extra time for deliciousness to occur, woot!) I’ve never cooked anything using the saute method before, so it was somewhat a big deal for me. (I know my way around the kitchen pretty well, I’ve been able to throw down for almost 10 years now. Plus it’s a much cheaper hobby than rebuilding computers. Why else do you think I have a breakfast face mascot? It’s my favorite meal! And this might be my next favorite thing to make!) I also had a goal to get my BBQ pork to taste somewhat like this popular buffet that I frequent. Did I hit my mark? I aimed for the moon and hit the stars. At the time this is published, I’m the only one who has eaten any of it, but I’m sure it’s a success. It was to me, and that’s something I can add to my menu. What’s the recipe? That’s for another post, sorry. And I didn’t really follow a recipe, just a cooking method. 😉

Meanwhile, I’ve been cooking up some poetry. I’m a month late for national poetry month, but inspiration kicks in when it wants to. And lately, I’ve been receptive to it as well as random events in my life. As the week goes on, I will post the few poems I have either completed or worked on. Completed works will be posted on my Behance page. It’s what I use it for. The first poem you can probably look forward to (in it’s unedited form) has a working title called Cubicle Assumptions From Mr. Mondayn. This poem was inspired by poetry (and a specific poem called Monday) by the great Billy Collins. One of the next poems is about Mother’s Day. I started writing it on Mother’s Day about Mother’s Day being more than just some specific Sunday in May. And that’s almost an exact line. I have one or two verses left, I haven’t decided yet, but I will post what I have. I wanted to experiment a bit more telling stories with poetry. My next poem I titled Anesthesia. Once I came up with that title, it was pretty difficult to think of something more attention grabbing than it’s contenders I had considered. I rather not say what the poem is about, and let you read it for yourself. The working title was Sense of Touch or just Touch.

I’ll also be working on this week’s friPod post which would’ve been last week’s friPod post. What happened with that? Simple answer: I was lazy. Well, I was also busy most of that day and Thursday (when I usually write them… crap, the secret is out). But what I had in mind I will be writing for this friDay’s post, and I shall not say, but it is related to poetry.

So what am I doing? That’s what Twitter is for.

What did I get my mom for Mom’s Day? A set of fresh cotton scented candles. And I made some cornbread while helping my dad cook more deliciousness. It’s how we roll. Yes, yes, y’all!
