Fall is on it’s way!

After several days of scorching hot weather, I woke up this morning and realized I was cold! Praise Thor, it’s sweater weather today!
In celebration of this magical season, I pulled out the potatoes and the dutch oven.

This post was brought to you by bacon grease.

Cabbage Rice
Damn this was good! I still had some cabbage leftover from cabbage rolls earlier in the week, but couldn’t really think of what to make with it since we are at the end of the paycheck and the end of the groceries from three weeks ago. Browsed pinterest and saw some interesting Indian dishes involving rice and cabbage, so I thought I’d give it a whirl with what ingredients I had. Best idea ever! 
Recipe:
1 small head of cabbage, sliced up thin and long
1 small onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
Rice
garam masala
ground ginger
1 tbsp Soy sauce
Peanut oil or olive oil or bacon fat
Diced pork (I had leftover pork shoulder, but you can use whatever meat cut you have, or no meat at all)
(peas would be great or sliced carrots too)
Directions:
Cook rice according to package in water with ample amounts of ginger and garam masala (I didn’t measure, but at least 2 tsp each). You want to end up with around 2 cups cooked rice at the end.
Cook onion in oil of your choice until soft, then add in peppers. Cook two mins, then add in cabbage. 
Cover and stir occasionally until cabbage gets soft but still a little crunchy.
Add cooked pork and garam masala to taste (again, I didn’t measure, but I’m thinking 2 tsp?). 
Mix in cooked rice, then stir in 1 tbsp soy sauce. Serve and gobble up!

Cake Batter Pancakes {end of the paycheck meals}
1/2 cup flour
1.5 cups cake mix 
2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
2 eggs
2 tbsp oil (vegetable, coconut or melted butter)
1-2 cups water

Combine dry ingredients. Add oil, eggs and one cup of water and mix well. Add more water if batter is too thick, it really just depends on the type of cake mix how much you’ll end up putting in. 
Cook in skillet or griddle. 
Voila! A dairy free breakfast, perfect for the end of the paycheck when you run out of milk (and in my case, flour).

ALRIGHT, LISTEN UP LADIES!!


You know how we all love getting our periods? All the cramps and pain that comes with it? Cravings, mood swings, etc.??

WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING

See this? These are Libra Hotties.

When you’re at school or uni or work or just having a good ol’ murder spree in your pretty floral dress, you whack one of these suckers on and BAM! heat patch and some goddamn needed relief!

You stick this patch where your lady muscle of bad-assery is and it slowly heats and lasts for 5 - 8 HOURS!!

Ladies, I ask that you hunt down these little pockets of gold and try them. Because they work. And because the only pain you really need during your period is from your OTP <3

I need this… I’m assuming you can put it on your back as well?

I read this whole post like a (very successful) infomercial for the Tumblr female audience

THERE WEBSITE HAS A PAGE WHERE YOU CAN FILL OUT A FORM AND TRY THEM FOR FREE!!! [x

This look fantastic! Too bad the free form is only to New Zealand…

Tortillas

Seriously guys. Seriously, these are aaaaaahmazing! eurgh merh gerd! 


2 cups flour
 1/2tsp salt 
1/2 tsp baking soda 
3/4 cup water, as hot as possible without boiling 
3 tbsp oil (I&#8217;ve been using olive oil just fine, but canola or vegetable oil work too)

Mix dry ingredients well. 
Measure out hot water and add oil to it. Pour wet ingredients in with dry. 
Stir till incorporated. It should have just barely enough water to moisten the flour. If it mixes up easily then add some another tablespoon of flour.
Knead 10-12 times. Let rest 5 to 10 mins.
 Separate into 8 or 9 balls. 
Flatten and roll out as much as possible on a floured surface. 
Cook for about 1 min on each side on an ungreased hot griddle or pan. It should bubble up a tad and start to get a few light brown spots. 
The first one always always cooks wrong so don&#8217;t worry. The next ones will be perfect.
