fiddleheads and southwestern saladTonight's dinner. The salad was technically part of lunch as well.

I almost never make anything super-fancy just for myself these days—seriously, half my meals come out of a can—but fiddlehead season comes but once a year, and my mom brought me some, so I got to make some of these tasty-but-dangerous delights.

Here is a recipe for how to make fiddleheads.

It came out excellently, holy shit.

The Southwestern salad is my own recipe, more or less. Sauteéd jalapenos, avocados, grape tomatoes, cilantro, and walnuts. The dressing is olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, black pepper, and lime juice. 

Other delicious things I have made or participated in making this weekend: Homemade falafel balls, pear-walnut pie, and more of that avocado pasta that I am obsessed with at the moment.


In other, related news, my apple tree is blossoming!

You have no idea how curious I am about fiddleheads. They look delicious.

Your garden and your cats are perfect. Cocoa looks exactly like a chocolate sculpture of a cat in that second picture <3

seriously, half my meals come out of a can

I'm not convinced that you're not a raccoon, typing away at a keyboard and wearing wigs to make people think you're totally a regular human adult and certainly not a raccoon, nope, not at all. It's ok, you can tell me, I'll still be your friend.

I 110% believe that she's cute all the time :3

Ah, sorry, my bad. I'll make sure to use the proper nomenclature for your species, then.

I knew people ate ferns (though I didn't know this was true of Canada) because of an anime I watched once where people ate these. They just sound delicious and I desperately want to eat ferns like a majestic dinosaur.

"people in Australia butter their cats and you think we're weird for eating ferns?"

People in Australia do WHAT

Australian people shouldn't own cats, period—or if they do, they shouldn't let them out. I hadn't been aware, however, that they plan to kill 2 million feral cats. That's wrongheaded and cruel.

It's because cats aren't native to Australia, and have an unfair advantage over native species like the bearded dragon and kangaroo rat.

I'm not making this up; of course, I've never let my cats out in New York City for obvious reasons—but people like my mother (when she was lucid, anyway) think it's "cruel" not to let cats out to chase and kill wildlife. Granted, people used to only get cats as mousers and never feed them just because they supposedly lived off the mice they caught, but those days are over. I'd never want my cat to kill and eat a mouse because of the poison my landlord might be putting out.
