Salt cod is a joke on me
I heard about the Catalan salt cod being a local specialty, and even though I saw this salt cod is from Galicia, I said whatever. Maybe all salt cod comes from Galicia, like most other seafood, I don't know, I haven't looked into it.
But you know what though, I could try to be less dumb. I will certainly try to be less insane in the future. Because I haven't looked up anything. Not a recipe, nothing. It didn't even occur to me to do something about SALT COD even though I felt the fucking salt particles as I picked it up. I fucking cooked it like that as it is and it's a fucking salt mine and it made every strip of pasta taste like a salt strip. I swear to God I have never... I had to toss it away.
Then I read online that I should soak it for at least 24 hours.
Why the fuck do I bother. Well I guess I wanted to explore "region specialties".
"Why can't you go to a fucking restaurant" - I have explained it to you before.
Anyway, Diary, this Salt Cod is a joke on me. It's OK. I have more. I'll try again tomorrow.
My favorite fresh mushroom is prolly shiitake. Haven't had it in a while and it's not something that portobello or the gray flappy one... "Oyster Mushroom" can compare. Got a bunch of uncommon ones that are dried, we'll try them later.
I'm tired, Diary. It actually rained almost all day today. I ought to be grateful. Of course. I am still tired.
