    I'm lucky, there's both a Jamaican and an Arabic market within 5 minutes of my place and I think they both sell goat. I got this from the Jamaican place. It's a little hard to tell what meats the Arabic place has, since they aren't really labeled and I feel slightly uncomfortable asking, so I might just grab something that looks like goat and hope for the best lol.

    I made potstickers! They were very "first attempt at an unfamiliar recipe"-y, but still tasted pretty good with soy sauce.

    I wrote down my family garlic bread recipe!

    Me and my friend had our first movie night since covid last weekend, so to celebrate the occasion I made a big pot of veggie/mushroom pasta (they're a non meat eater) and this garlic bread. They liked it so much they inhaled all that I didn't eat myself and then begged for the recipe, lol XD

    Non UK people will have to Google to translate oven temps but other than that it's pretty simple and Very Tasty :)

    I'm making an effortfood to celebrate being able to turn on my oven again, and it involves thyme, and only after I dumped it in did I notice that my failure to read all the words on the box because many of them were in Arabic resulted in me buying something that says "THYME" in big letters on the front and then on the side there is an ingredient list that starts out, "Thyme, spices-"

    Whatever this does to the recipe is either going to send me directly to heaven or to hell.

    I've said this before, but this stuff has absolutely no right whatsoever to be a fairly easy recipe. It always comes out looking like it was made by someone who actually cares what the food they cook looks like with no particular effort on my part. It feels like I'm cheating at something.

    Greek chicken with roasted potatoes.
    4 bone-in skin-on chicken breasts or thighs
    1 1/2 pounds potatoes chopped into bite-sized hunks
    2 lemons, sliced
    1 tomato, diced
    1/2 c kalamata olives, chopped as much as you feel like
    1/4 feta cheese
    fresh parsley

    Spice gloop:
    2 tsp onion powder
    2 tsp salt
    2 tsp dried thyme
    2 tsp oregano
    1 tsp pepper
    1/4 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    2 tablespoons fresh parsley
    1/4 c olive oil
    1. Preheat oven to 400F.
    2. Throw all the spice gloop ingredients in a food processor, or just chop up the parsley and stir it all up.
    3. Rub the chicken with about half the spice gloop and put it on a baking sheet with the lemons. The rest of the spice gloop gets tossed with the potatoes, which also go on the baking sheet around the chicken.
    4. Chicken and lemon and potatoes go in the oven for about 30 minutes (or until the chicken's cooked through).
    5. Turn the oven on broil for like 5-10 minutes until the chicken skin looks toasty.
    6. Take it out, put tomato and olives and feta and more parsley on top, admire your handiwork.

    theambernerd dead to all sense of shame

    the fact that 'put a bunch of stuff in the oven with spices and broil it' is both healthy and low spoons continues to baffle me. my sister would do a sheet bake of like, potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower and chicken with some garlic and stuff and it was like.. just eating a pile of vegetables shouldn't be this satisfying what is this witchcraft
