I like asian food, especially noodles and whenever I stumble upon a recipe that catches my eye, I try to reproduce it. So here is today’s shot at “Basic Udon Soup” that I discovered on this guy’s very well made Youtube channel that I’ve been following for years now. This is not an overly savoury or particularly filling soup, rather some light meal. Watch the video or read on here how to make it:
Wow. Finally I did what I was postponing (procrastinating?) for several weeks now: I ultimately cleaned the munich workshop. Swept and vacuumed the whole place, then tidied up everything thoroughly by stowing away all tools and materials to their intended places. Finally wiped down the workbench and oiled it with linseed oil. That indeed was some work – it took me almost two afternoons.
Some (badly necessary) rules for the future:
- Always – yes, ALWAYS! – close the workbench shelve’s curtains. Just. Do. That.
- Sweep and vacuum the shop right away.
- Put back your tools immediately.
- Follow your material storage scheme accurately.
One of my personal classics, and I’m surprised that I didn’t even post this here yet. It’s a hearty, savoury and filling soup, best eaten on a cold day to warm up both body and soul. Yum! Aaand here’s how:
Neatly ordered and organized for your viewing pleasure!
What do I need to keep in my cabinets and drawers to be “safe” for most situations when I have to feed some people or scratch up something for two “out of nothing”? This is what I always have in stock and refill reliably, just to have it available without having to think about it.
This is my personal roundup, it may lack a lot of stuff that other people deem indispensable, but it’s a list of staples that I think mostly anyone can get along with fairly well. If you like, you can also have a look on what I deem essential kitchen equipment. Read on…
Not much herb-growing this year due to various… uhmm… turbulences, but at least some tomatoes and Chilies. Aaand of course trying to propagate the Monstera and the Hops from my garden 🙂 Chilies and tomatoes were sowed from trivial supermarket-bought vegetables (like so), the other two are small shoots cut off the mature plants.
This is my sort of breakfast burrito – thrown together from what you’ve got in the fridge and melted together to cheesy, delicious goodness 🙂 Of course you can throw in whatever like but this one is mine. It’s fast and easy in the morning.
Some impressions from the northern germany countryside. So beautiful, quiet and calm. I already miss it.
My neighbours gave away four old wooden military storage boxes, really cool stuff! They used them when they were on LARPs over the past years (which I find extra cool…). Given the labelling, they seem to be of russian or even soviet origin, sturdy as hell and really heavy. I love them!
One is now used for my bug-in equipment, another one for car parts and tools and I will most surely find a useful application for the remaining two! I also took their measurements, see above.
