You should be able to find MSG on Amazon as Ajinomoto or Accent. Asian supermarkets will definitely have MSG. You can find the culantro in Asian supermarkets if they sell Vietnamese things too. Vietnamese people sometimes add culantro (ngò gai) to pho.

They're not super important (although the culantro does affect the taste fairly noticeably) if you can't find them though! I used to not use either because I couldn't find them before.

I'm gonna make fried rice soon. The kind that is full of all sorts of things because I can.


I didn't use a recipe, but here's more or less how I made it:

In a 4.4 quart caldero:
Fry about 1 or 1.5 pounds of boneless chicken thighs diced up, they were seasoned and marinated the night before with salt, garlic, black pepper, paprika, and vinegar.
Add one onion, diced up, and fry it with the chicken.

When the chicken is done, add the following into the pot:
8-10oz of tomato paste
5~ tablespoons of adobo (salt, garlic, black pepper mix)
2~ tablespoons of MSG
2~ tablespoons of paprika
2~ tablespoons of cut up culantro
Some vinegar
16oz of red kidney beans
40oz~ of water

Stir well on medium-high heat, keep uncovered, wait until it starts to boil and then add 6~ cups (gou / rice cooker cups) of rice right into the pot.

Stir often. Once there's visibly more rice than liquid on the pot (ie most of the liquid drained, but it's still quite soupy), cover the pot and lower the heat to low. Stir every 10 minutes, keep the pot covered after stirring. Should be done after 30-40 minutes.

Not now, but later, some stuffed pizza. There's a 25% off deal at a local-ish pizza place.

I'm making okonomiyaki! But the boy doesn't like it and I'm kind of sad about that. The rest of the family is enjoying it.

I'm not really eating anything, but I'm on my third cup of coffee tonight. Normally I prefer to sweeten it but a lot of sweetened coffee makes me act weird and I needed something to help keep me awake a little longer

I'm making (not quite yet eating) chicken and celery sandwiches. I found the recipe in a cookbook for babies and toddlers. They say that thicker, stickier fillings can make sandwiches easier for babies to handle (we will see).

It's basically finely chopped cooked chicken, finely chopped celery, mayo (mm kewpie), chives, and a squeeze of lemon. I'm going to put it on light rye. It sounds alright for a grown up sandwich as well, and babies who see their parents eating the same thing they are do tend to eat better…

Update: baby's sandwich is everywhere. Adult sandwich wants some salt and pepper.

Apparently dinner wasn't enough to fill me up (somehow..) so I opted to have a couple doughnuts and another cup of coffee.

I decided on "breakfast for dinner" tonight, mainly because most days I don't really have anything for breakfast and I wanted something different. Eggs & bacon, sausage, toast, cinnamon rolls and a nice cup of coffee.

The intermittent fasting has helped with my sugar cravings and I've lost a little bit of weight.

Next up is fixing my microbiota. It is messed up since I got mastitis and was put on some very heavy antibiotics. I have been eating a lot of Greek yoghurt and looking into other fermented foods. I also had a bunch of raspberries with it, I think they may be a prebiotic or something, I forget, there was a reason I bought them though. I bought kefir and I am a little nervous about trying it later on.

The Greek yoghurt makes me have a very mild tummy ache, which is probably a sign of how messed up my gut is. Given that kefir is much more potent I may give it a few days before I try it.

I'm still having nothing. Well, coffee (black, no sugar), but no food.

The sugar cravings have stopped. I'm not hungry all the time. I'm not devouring huge amounts of carbs. The intermittent fasting is doing exactly what I hoped, really.

αI'm really liking this El Yucateco habanero sauce now that we're using it more again. We should make sure to get more. I'm not sure I like the black kind as much, it's got too strong a smoke flavor for most things. The red and green are pretty good working hot sauces, and the kutbil-ik is nice sometimes.

I packed some dark chocolate-covered peanuts in with my lunch today, but they were gone before I left my neighborhood because I have good impulse control.

αNothing right now, but it was enchiladas earlier. Comfort food was necessary for Reasons.

Lamb rogan josh that I made in the pressure cooker! I'm so happy with how the pressure cooker works.
