Harper, strike, and soldier, go.
Free the flame and sear the grasses
Till the dawning Red Star passes."

I once put off a 5 minute task for so long, it was already at the 6 month replacement mark for when I should have originally done it! Efficient!

I second oatmeal but I go with savory. 50g of oats, 250ml of broth/liquid.

Variation 1 is a spice mix that mimics a favorite rice pilaf recipe (maybe 1/2 tsp of Old Bay seasoning, some salt and pepper, a sprinkle of turmeric and coriander). Then add in protein, veg, cheese, whatever. That's my go-to most of the time.

Variation 2 is "pizza" style: a scoop of premade marinara, some broth to fill out the rest of the liquid, and a sprinkle of shredded mozz. Throw in some protein/veg that works (think pizza).

Variation 3 is "Mexican style," which I mostly do if I have some leftover carnitas or taco meat: change the spices to chili powder and cumin, cheese, of course.

Quick oats cook up in 2-2.5 minutes in the microwave. Total prep time is maybe 10-15 minutes.

It took me a moment to get used to it, because I had the traditional upbringing with oatmeal = cinnamon, sugar, etc. But it's not that different from mashed potatoes, polenta, or rice. I already had the pilaf recipe that was a favorite "go with anything" side dish, so I tried that first and stuck with it.

I make a pretty simple potato and kale soup that's a favorite in my house. It's not a recipe per se with set quantities, I just wing it.

I start in a large pot with diced carrot, onion, and celery sautéed for a few minutes, then add spice at the end to bloom: rosemary, thyme, black pepper at a minimum. Sometimes I add some garlic powder and/or paprika for a touch of daring. Next add beans, usually 1 or 2 cans of cannellini beans. Then add chicken broth, homemade if possible. About 2 quarts of broth (or 2 liters if you use a sensible measurement system). Sometimes add another 2 of water to expand the amount. Salt to taste, cover, and bring to a simmer.

After at least 30 minutes add 3-4 potatoes diced into bite-sized pieces. Simmer for another 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. At this point, I usually scoop out a few ladles-full and blend it smooth, then add back in to thicken the soup. Add some chopped fresh kale to wilt in the broth for a few minutes, then serve.

It's warm and hearty, can be vegan if desired by using vegetable broth, and can be ready in about an hour.

end note: If you want to use the whole kale leaf including the rib, dice the rib and add it to the carrot/onion/celery sautee. Keep in mind if you do this and also do the blending step, your broth will be greenish. Still tastes good though and you get more fiber.

I'm pretty sure the admin response to lack of search was "just use Google."

Nobody ever considers the feelings of the poor corporations! It's all the fault of those mealy-mouthed... sneers ... humans! With their "I'm tired" and "I need to eat food" and "I need to go to the bathroom." How is that productive or efficient? How does that contribute to shareholder value?

How did living in caves not backfire on cavemen?

I have a lot of indirect experience/knowledge with caves. I don’t have to be one of the people who directly explored one to know one of the first things one learns about caves is how ill-suited for wandering around they are. Slopes can change on a dime, it’s incredibly rocky inside, and they fill with whatever falls from the...

Look at Inuit and other cultures that live in the Arctic. Humans can live (relatively) comfortably in extreme conditions without keeping their environment at a constant 22C.

So does this solely affect tax status? Or does it mean that they must also divest corporate assets (real estate, vehicles, investments, etc.)? What are the practical effects of this action?

You sort them? I just keep the thousand-money bills and put the rest in the trash.
