i made a truce with the blackness dyer
i sauteed freshly dug vegetables today and poured them over fried toast and melted shitty russian cheese on it, it is officially the first meal i invented here. it was so delicious. also an italian informed me today that you should NEVER put mushrooms and cheese together in the same dish and i’m like, what the hell, i thought italians knew what tasted good. whatever anyway i have a kitchen to myself for the next 4 days or so i’m going to experiment.
it took me two weeks of confusedly eating candies labeled карамель and not tasting caramel to realise that this is the russian word for hard candy in general, not just caramels. this is the kind of knowledge that years of reading pushkin just won’t give you
