Made the mistake last week of buying 20 lbs of potatoes at Costco while I had a broken oven. So here I am trying to still get rid of them a week later. in any way possible that does not require an oven. Besides what a better way to procrastinate from your assignments other than to cook (and more importantly eat)?
Potato Lentil Soup
Cost: $0.75 / servingServings: 4Time: 35 minutes
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 largish carrots, sliced
3 cups vegetable stock (I used bouillon cubes that are salt free, and while I may not be a chemist I do believe that includes MSG given the sodium component of that or at least mine did not have it)
1 cups green lentils
1 large Russet potato, peeled and chopped
2 bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground coriander
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Kosher sea salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
Dried parsley to garnish
Procedure:
Sauté the carrots, garlic, and onion until the onions are yellowed over a medium heat.
Throw in the vegetable broth, potatoes, coriander, oregano, and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low and cover for 30 minutes.
Check that the potatoes and lentils are tender. If so put in the vinegar (really important makes the flavour, but you do not taste the vinegar itself), salt (if needed), and pepper.
Serve and garnish.

Although this really should not be an issue for much longer for those who have taken the plunge into Ubuntu 14.04 while it is in beta here is a quick way to get steam to install after it gives you an error in Ubuntu Software Center. With an error saying something like “package operation failed”.

Open up the terminal and enter

sudo dpkg -i /location/of/file.deb

After this it will start the installation and you will be on your merry way. It should also install all the extras that you need to have installed in order to get Steam working properly. I did this on a fresh install of Ubuntu so I had not had them installed previously.

Just a little side note this isntallation method works for all .deb files. If you are ever having issues installing something give this a try.

Bear with me everyone. Site is in transition. Lots of stuff to work on converting from a wordpress blog to a tumblr. Also need to repair the database from a recovery of the site due to the old host deleting my account without notice (and then trying to pretend they did not). Theme will be a long running project. Midterms are currently going on this week so not much will be happening.
