auriga: (Lina & Gourry - probably food)
My mom got this from a magazine or cookbook and made it a few times, so I made a copy of the recipe from home.

I don't think we actually include the rice when we make it, though, but I can't really remember. We would've used cheaper rice if we did, haha.

Mediterranean Barley Rice Salad

Ingredients – Salad

-1 cup pearl barley, rinsed
-1 cup basmati rice, rinsed
-3 cups cherry tomatoes
-half large red onion
-1 sweet red pepper
-1 English cucumber
-4 cups baby spinach, coarsely chopped
-1 pkg (200g) feta cheese, crumbled

Ingredients – Dressing
-1/2 cup olive oil
-1/2 cup lemon juice
-1 tsp dried oregano
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper

Directions – Salad
Cook barley in a saucepan of boiling salted water until tender, about 20 min. Drain and rinse under cold water. Drain well and let stand 10 min to dry, then transfer to large bowl.

In a separate saucepan, bring 1 ½ cups salted water to boil. Add rice, cover, reduce heat, and simmer until tender and no liquid remains, about 15 min. Let stand 5 min. Add to barley mixture and allow to cool.

Cut tomatoes in half, and cut the onion, red pepper, and cucumber into 1-inch chunks; add veggies to barley mixture, tossing to combine.

Directions – Dressing
In large bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper; pour over salad and toss to coat. Refrigerate 30 min or up to 24 hours.

To serve, stir in spinach and feta.

Not sure where my sister got this recipe but she made it once and I thought it was good, so I asked her for it! If I recall, I think she used chickpeas and sausage instead of chicken.

So this happened, and why would I ever consider not writing this?

Title: The Final Curtain
Fandom: Tales of Graces
Note: It doesn't really take place at any particular time, besides having everyone in the party in the main arc.
Summary: Hubert's fashion sense is questioned in the most scandalous (to him) of ways.

It's curtains for you! )
auriga: (Mojo - nibble)
Or Augolemono, which I've also seen. Since I sort of took ideas from a couple of other recipes and then just made my own. (Seriously, why wouldn't I put garlic in it? Garlic makes everything better!) It was really easy! And delicious. I didn't measure a thing that went in here, so these amounts are just my best guess.

Lemony deliciousness )
auriga: (Anise - big trouble!)
Here's another of those forgotten fics. There might still be some more...

Title: Taming Beasts
Fandom: Tales of Vesperia
Note: It doesn't really take place at any particular time. Maybe around the third chapter of the game!
Summary: Estelle causes an unexpected problem for a couple other members of the party...

Estelle, perhaps you should consider changing back into your traveling outfit. )
auriga: (Mojo - nibble)
Apparently I wrote some Vesperia fics like one or two years ago that I actually did finish! But then I completely forgot about them. The others might require a bit of touching up, so here's one.

Title: Telephone
Fandom: Tales of Vesperia
Characters: Yuri, Rita, Karol, and Estelle.
Note: Takes place after escaping the knights in Halure but before arriving at Ehmead Hill.
Summary: When you hear things by word of mouth, sometimes the message gets a little garbled.

Was she meditating? )
auriga: (Rita - going down)
I like writing short fics. If I don't get the idea out right away, I'll forget it and it'll never happen...

Anyway, this doesn't really have a title yet but it's just a short gen fic about Rita and the others when they first get to Capua Nor.

Blah blah blah tidal wave etc )
auriga: (Neviril - breeze)
This show gives me so many feelings; I've been rewatching it...

Here is a short little picspam I put together for this episode. It doesn't contain any characters, but rather a certain piece of scenery that is shown at several points in latter half.

Mornings are very beautiful in Urvel...Especially from the tower in the city centre. )
auriga: (Rita - going down)
Title: I have no idea what to title this yet, actually.
Fandom: Tales of Vesperia
Characters: Rita and Raven
Wordcount: 495
Note: No explicit spoilers, but it takes place after Judith bails out following the events in Nordopolica.
Summary: Rita's usually too busy occupying her mind with other things to be concerned about justice and punishment, but Raven prods her into talking. In her impatience, she doesn't understand the impact of her words.

Things that actually matter. )
