You can basically say anything about time as a concept and have it sound profound. Try it - “time is a ___ ___.” It’ll sound like you’re saying something. In these what seem to be young days of isolation time has become a lot more illusory, though. The sun rises and it sets, the heavens keep spinning, but lord knows if it’s Monday, Thursday, or some new day just invented. One of the only things demarcating time’s arrow are what bad news we receive upon waking up, it doesn’t matter when you went to sleep, there will be bad news. So since all our hours are minutes and all our seconds days I figured a snack that works for breakfast unto late night dessert is in order. Presenting the Anytime Sweet Cheese Snack.
Goat cheese, or chevre if you’re nasty
For the most part I’m not a fan of sweetened cheese. Sweet dairy? No prob, load up that yogurt with sugar. But I like cheese that’s hearty and savory and sweetness can kind of muddle that. A major exception to that is goat cheese.
There’s something about the earthiness in goat cheese that complements sugar very well and I found this through my own senses. I’m no gastronomologist, I’m sure this flavor pairing is well documented and reasoned. It’s just that if we were to look at some sort of evolutionary chart of “chef” I’d be one of those C-shaped man-monkeys, so for me this is like discovering the wheel.
Anyway, the recipe. Start by turning bread into toast. Are you like the 1000% of the population that has taken to starting and perhaps finishing sourdough? If you are take that bread that you cooked and cook it again. Trust me, it’s wild, but it works.
Sprinkle on the goat cheese and get a good coat of it on the toast. The warmth should hopefully make the spreading easier. Then toss on your berries. I like raspberries for this since they’re nice and juicy, but feel free to use your preferred colorful contribution. Except for boysenberries. I don’t trust those ass holes.
Lastly, coming out of left field, add some basil. This works infinitely better if you have fresh leaves than the dried stuff, but who the hell cares at this point, right? Basil acts as a nice springiness to offset the density of the other ingredients. Leaves- they’re useful. And with that, we’re done. It’s a snack.
Not much to say about this I haven’t already. It’s a good breakfast or makes for a fine after dinner treat. Which is a weird thing we have all agreed upon, that some sweet baked goods are for breakfast and others aren’t. I’ll have a croissant for dessert, like a real American.
Anyway, this whole isolation era has been getting to me. My folks are in New York and my mom seems to have come down with the virus. She went to the ER to get some of her fluids and blood pressure back up. Now she seems to be on the mend, but my dad is severely immunocompromised so if he gets it, well, let’s just say we’ve had some conversations about the ifs, not the whens, pertaining to his next birthday. Coupled with the general downturn of collective hope it’s freaky and there’s nothing I can do about it. Can’t even see someone to talk about it, which is indicative of the larger mental state I’m in while alone. But fuck it, man, I’ll see y’all on the other side of this. Just hard to tell who I’ll be when I get there. Whoever that person is, though, will bring snacks.
I switched bedrooms with my brother and the bedroom I’m going to sleep in now has pretty crappy sound isolation. You can pretty much hear every noise from the living room, and vice versa.
The living room sits directly next to this room, in fact right next to my bed.
Changing the position of my bed unfortunately isn’t an option. I had in mind to cover about 2m x 2m with acoustic foam from aliexpress, since I’m on a budget.
I know this foam doesn’t help with keeping sounds from outside of the room out, that’s not really what bothers me even.
It’s more so that I want to keep certain sounds I might produce with my girlfriend for myself haha.
What would you suggest doing?submitted by /u/ArachnidWasTaken
