While this was a below-average lunch because of the dal and rice, this was interesting because I had fish to go with it. Apparently my parents would eat something similar in Guyana, except the fish would simply be pan-friend local offerings (and often without the bhaji). Ultimately this meal wasn’t bad, and it was even interesting to eat in the bowl.
Grand finale, everyone! That was quite a journey; thanks for putting up with me during this. Celebrations are in order as this is the first playthrough of a game I’ve completed from beginning to end. So thank you so much for following along.
This segment’s a bit short, and I missed an achievement that would’ve given me a 100% completion rate in the game. Oops. Otherwise, we’re close to the end!
I carry on with Part 2 of my Whispering Willows playthrough! That garden was annoying. >.>;;
So about a week ago deviantART had a community challenge for a new badge based on a popular deviation that was on their site since 2006. The objective was to draw said subject, in then you’d receive the badge. The original piece is a pear with a very human mouth, known as the Biting Pear of Salmanca.
I got mine, all right. While the caption doesn’t make sense, it does hearken back to when I first saw this; on a meme on 9gag in which the pear had been saying something similar.
It’s been a bit since I’ve posted something that wasn’t me coloring, but this had a different grade of advancement and did want to share. April Fools.
I checked out an interesting sidescrolling game by the name of Whispering Willows. It was indie and it was partial horror, all mixed with puzzle elements. I approve!
Had this small happening while playing Overwatch in Quick Play one evening. A supercharged Roadhog kept killing the team, who was powered by three Mercys. While it took awhile for the team to figure out what to do, I already saw parallels from an old side-shooter game I used to play; Gradius. Suffice to say my approach worked.
When I got my goody bag from Christina this holidays, I was introduced to the goodness known as Trader Joes. So the first free chance I got, I trekked it to Knoxville and visited the one out there, across from Toys-R-Us on Kingston Pike. This was my haul!
Goodies include fruit jellies, coffee, cheese puffs, cheese sticks, pub cheese and licorice sticks. Sue me, I love salty, savory cheese products.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! Remember to keep large grazing animals away from your holiday decorations. 🙂

So when my aunt came to visit this holiday season, she whipped up some pepper pot for my mom. Sadly they didn’t have lamb for it (that was used on curry instead), so she used a chunk of goat meat in its creation.
Apparently you let this stew in a crock pot overnight to cook. I have to get the specifics again on how to create. But you add pepper and spice stuff to it, hence the name.
This was my first exposure to the dish, and the first time I ate goat. It actually wasn’t too bad; this one wasn’t tender and very chewy. Otherwise, it typically goes with bread and you use it to suck up the gravy.
It was a welcome change to get to eat a more genuine Guyanese dish.
