I see Posty's now evolved to motion picture technology. Excellent.

So the Posty Finnish demographic has expanded once again.

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of entertaining a lovely guest at my house. We went hiking, made love, watched anime, made love, played card games, made love, and cooked meals before I drove her back to her place and we made love a final time in her dishwasher. I leave it to the reader to determine whether that was a typo thanks to my irritating smartphone's autocorrect.

Posty is probably experts at all the other activities, so I'll just elaborate on the cooking bit.

Beef and broccoli stir fry

Ingredients: flank steak, broccoli, garlic, ginger, spring onions, corn starch, soy sauce, red wine optional.

Freeze the beef steak just enough that you can slice it thinly without trouble. Ideal dimensions are maybe the length of a thumb, the width of a stick of chewing gum, and the thickness of a fine coin. Mix them first with corn starch, then with cooking oil, then with soy sauce.

Chop the broccoli into pieces about the size of a golf ball. Any bigger and stirring them will be tricky.

Chop the spring onions into inch segments (2.54cm for the civilized metric folks) and thinly slice the garlic and ginger.

Put oil in the pan and heat, adding half of the ginger and garlic to season the oil. Add the broccoli and stir fry, aiming to fry all sides and surfaces where possible. When crowns turn deeper green, turn heat to low, pour in a bit of water, and cover to steam.

In another pan, heat oil and add in garlic and ginger as before. Using chopsticks, lay the beef slices gently into the pan, turning individually as they cook. When both sides are crispy brown, lower the heat and add the broccoli, juice and all.

In a separate bowl, mix corn starch and soy sauce until it acquires the physical properties of a non-Newtonic fluid. Enjoy the semi-solid, semi-liquid gestalt. Then stop playing with your goddam food and add water until it forms a hearty gravy. Add this to the mixture, and stir on low heat for awhile longer.

Serve with rice, quinoa, or on its own.

For dessert, I'd made a fruit compote and served it with vanilla yogurt. This is entirely optional.

Noms Take.

This brings in mind question, I've read some time ago in wilderness & survival forums that eating rabbit might actually make you consume more energy than gain. Can't remember why this was so, but it was the meat. I wonder if this applies to noodles, because every time I eat then I become hungry as fuck. :P

Fish

I'm getting back into pan frying fish. I used to cook fish a lot a few years ago, but stopped for some reason. Easing back into it now.

For this recipe I use white fish fillets (tilapia, swai, or basa are good choices). There are several ways you can go, but generally speaking it's good to have a sauce because these fish species don't have much in the way of internal flavor (unlike, say, salmon) and also they can cook for quite some time without jeopardizing their texture.

Savory sauce: Add olive oil and sundried tomatoes to the pan, heat with chopped garlic. Finely chop an onion and add to the pan, stirring on high heat until brown. Then lower the heat and spread the onion evenly. Leave to cook and caramelize. The process takes about 40 minutes and should not be rushed - you'll know you've succeeded when the onions are transparent and the smell is sweet rather than acrid. Add baby portabella mushrooms and marsala wine (or other sweet wines could do, like sweet reds or rice wine) and stir fry a bit longer, then add the fish fillets and fry on high heat on each side. If the cuts are thick, lower the heat and cover to ensure thorough cooking all the way through. Sauce is a sweet onion-based sauce, filled out by mushrooms and with tangy tomato topnotes.

Later on I intend to try a lemon herb sauce, and a miso ginger sauce.

The fish fillets are probably the cheapest meat I can buy, actually. Hadn't thought of that.


I'm also taking my own lunches to work much more often these days, and it's not unheard of for me to cook a dinner, and package half of it up immediately for tomorrow's consumption.
