The Action Cookbook Newsletter revisits our greatest successes, and looks to the future.
I read Station Eleven from this website's recommendation in the early days of the End Times. I found it oddly cathartic in how it bounced back between worlds from before and after the outbreak. It was all very calming to me - except for The Prophet. Fuck that guy, I don't care who his parents are.
Very excited for all the confusing looks I’m going to get while wearing the Kentuckiana Hot Loin shirt
"Sooner or later, someone is going to pioneer a vegetarian or vegan Hot Loin" I have been putting thought into this.
I want to let you know that we finally made the Jules Verne tonight. It is, indeed, a banger, and I’m almost certainly going to have another after the kids go to sleep.
My loins, they are hot for this.
The Hot Loin is definitely the ultimate distillation of this website's essence.
Everything is Alive is SO GOOD. the one with the balloon legitimately surprised me at the end in a way not a lot of media has.
I finally got off the wait list on Overdrive for Station Eleven in May. I read it and loved it, but second the opinion that now is not exactly the time. Another maybe-dont-read-this-during-an-actual-pandemic book that I read this year (I make good choices) was Moon of the Crusted Snow, which is set in a First Nation community in northern Canada, when suddenly the power goes out and their grocery supplies stop. It's another fantastic book that I would recommend putting in a time capsule until These Uncertain Times are over.
I'm really becoming a believer in brine. Rarely cook chicken or pork without it these days.
