it’s all croupdaville up in this hizzy. and i’m 99 percent positive i’m about to be reinfected with it again because that back of throat pain that i tried to convince myself was from swallowing a spider (yes, this is how badly i do not want to get sick) hasn’t gone away and i feel like a blob. and my eyes are heavy, knees weak arms are sweaty there’s vomit on my sweater already, moms spaghetti.
or something like that. you better lose yourself……
i’m also starting to (mis)quote eminem so it could also be the end of the world.
anyways. i turned a large-ish age over the weekend, made homemade pasta with people i’m obsessed with, ate my weight in pork ragu and apple pie, drank a vineyard in wine, carved the crap out of some pumpkins, and made these short ribs. for you. because i love you. and if you’re creepy i completely retract that statement. i don’t love you. but i probably maybe could try.
because there is nothing that makes a house smell better than braised meat and vegetables in the fall/winter months. i’m serious. it could put me to sleep it’s that comforting.
and then you throw in almost three heads of garlic and a delicious amount of miso, wooo wee. what my sensory dreams are made of.
anyways, barely any notes. this is so simple. my favorite way to eat these is over Japanese sticky rice (white sushi rice) with quick pickled vegetables (see my quick pickled radishes on how to quick pickle…. so easy)!
