Pizza!! One of our favs. Used a dough recipe that is simply flour water yeast salt. We had leftover pizza sauce from a few weeks ago, it's made of tomato paste, tomato sauce, oregano, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.
Cooked a stir-fry today!

Ingredients for stir-fry: carrots, broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, mushrooms, snow peas, leftover tofu, green onion, avocado oil.

For sauce: salt, pepper, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, water,  garlic.

I blanched the vegetables (carrots, broccoli and mushrooms for 3 min, zucchini and snow peas for 1 minute, bell pepper for 15 seconds). Didn't grab a pic of the veggies in the pot but got one of them drained in the sink post blanch.

Then fried the garlic in oil on high heat in a pan for 10 seconds, added sauce ingredients, then added everything else for 30 seconds. (Green onions as garnish).

Turned out pretty good, would use corn starch next time for the sauce to make it thicker.
Today I made Adas bil Hamod which is a lemon lentil soup. It's a new favourite of mine, my Lebanese fiance first introduced it to me. We are in her sister's condo now (condo-sitting for a little while) with a limited kitchen but luckily we brought a pressure cooker with us.

The ingredients are shown in the first pic, roughly 4 carrots, 4 potatoes, 1 onion, 2 bunches chard, 1 cup lentils, 6 cups water, 1 clove garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil, juice from 1-2 lemons.

Basically you can throw everything into the pressure cooker for 10 minutes but we like to cook the lentils first so the vegetables don't get super soft. So lentils pressure cook for about 7 minutes, meanwhile fry the onions and garlic for a couple minutes, then everything goes in for another 3 minutes of pressure cooking. Should offer 4-6 servings.
Cleaned the kitchen today after doing the dishes. Used pink solution cleaner where needed.

Typically I do the dishes in smaller batches but I let em stack up today for this badge bit.

I used pink solution cleaner
(https://pinksolution.ca/pages/products)
which is all natural and biodegradable.

Roughly 1.5 gallons in the sink afterwards.

One cup jasmine rice dry, 1.5 cups water, 3 cups finished!
First time oiling my wooden utensils, like many others I didn’t know this was a thing! Enjoyed the process and happy to keep my things taken care of. Olive oil is the oil I used. Snuck in an extra knife in between the before and after.

Greased my front door hinges as they were squeaky for awhile now. Just sprayed a bit of white lithium grease on the hinge and opened and closed the door a few times and wiped up the excess. Worked like a charm.
