Blow your MIND” Tomato Basil Pasta! - No Straining, just Stirring
Throw it all in the pot, INCLUDING the uncooked Pasta, and cook! - Bring it to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. The starch leaches out of the pasta and makes a rich, warm sauce for the noodles. The other ingredients cook right along with the pasta
12 ounces pasta (Shown Linguine)
1 can (15 ounces) diced tomatoes with liquid ( I used zesty red pepper flavor)
1 large sweet onion, cut in julienne strips
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
2 large sprigs basil, chopped
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth (regular broth and NOT low sodium)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Optional Parmesan cheese for garnish
Place pasta, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, in a large stock pot. Pour in vegetable broth. Sprinkle on top the pepper flakes and oregano. Drizzle top with oil.
Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low simmer and keep covered and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes or so. Cook until almost all liquid has evaporated – I left about an inch of liquid in the bottom of the pot – but you can reduce as desired .
Season to taste with salt and pepper , stirring pasta several times to distribute the liquid in the bottom of the pot. Serve garnished with Parmesan cheese if desired.
great Zeus’s beard this stuff is good. it’s also really easy and cheap and smells wonderful when it’s cooking. MAKE THE THING.
I’ve made this multiple times before and you should too
A mean where I don’t have do to shit and it practically makes itself? Yes please.
Pretty sure I reblogged it before but food porn + recipe must be blogged forever.
Yeah that’s Macho Man Randy Savage in the form of a pixely dragon from Skyrim!

THIS IS MY FAVORITE HEAD CANON OF ALL TIME
I MISSED THIS WHEN IT FIRST CAME AROUND
Looks like Carlos just found out why the Friz’s life is so…Vale-d.
Are there no fucking butterflies in japan
To be fair, in the third one they are bird-like. It’s appropriate since they’re called Rukh, another name for the Roc, which is a giant bird in Arabian mythology.
They find out what they are sometime between now and 2071, at least.
i can’t not share this! my mind is blown by this amazing animated graphic novel. this is honestly the only time i’ve regretted not having an iPad! website for this project can be found here, check it out!
I thought the sketch-dude next to the animator’s name looked familiar. This is the same guy who did the Thought of You animation. Cool to see more of his stuff.
Okay look there are like 50 restaurants in Luminose City and I should have the option treat Professor Sycamore to dinner while he observes my
While you’ve got him there, maybe ask about the evidence that Litwick uses people’s life energy for fuel and, if that is the case, why this restaurant is using them as table candles. That little guy is actively burning away your lives.
why always the love triangle why never the threesome
can’t we all just get along and remember to share guys
I refer you to Cat Planet Cuties/Bombshells from the Sky. It’s got dumb bits, but it also has a love quadrangle that two participants don’t actively realize exists/participate in and when the female of those two is confronted with it, she obliterates it by being all about sharing. Then they get into space mech suits to go fight robots and prevent a spaceship from disintegrating itself. Oh, anime.

I apologize since this is quite the long post, but I am in love with this artist’s art. All the work and little details put into all of it is amazing and makes me really happy.
I like to see art of this side of the Pokemon universe. Because otherwise it’s basically a universe revolving around pitting animals against each other for sport and that’s an… uncomfortable thought.
Nintendo, look at this. Look at all these stories, all these games. Taken as a whole, these could easily be art for a Harvest Moon/Rune Factory type game. Separately, they can be more.
We’ve got popular truck and train driving simulators, realistic farmer simulations, and a host of city and world building games. You’ve got an existing fanbase spanning ages from single digits to at least 50 years, probably more. You can make life simulation games for the poke-verse. There’s an audience, I assure you. You’ve expanded a fair bit since Red and Blue, but those that don’t have fighting as a main mechanic are mostly just minigames.
Show us life before pokeballs, show us the lives of the researchers that make our pokedex entries. the breeders, even the gang members (It’s not like you’ve never made them sympathetic, and even then, sometimes it’s fun to play a bad guy.) Big stories spanning the world, small personal ones, games are great for both. Look at that mewtwo picture and tell me it’s impossible to build a character relationship like The Last of Us or Telltale’s The Walking Dead had.
Ever seen Endless Ocean? It’s just scuba diving in different locations, seeing wildlife, and touching fish. I would absolutely play a game like that with pokemon. Pokemon Snap was a bestseller and plenty of people would like to see more entries.
There’s money in niche audiences. I think you know that you don’t need to appeal to everyone to make a profit. Just keep the budgets reasonable and the marketing smart. You’ve got more than a few series of games, you’ve got a whole world full of potential settings and characters. Use it.
The Blue Dragon (Glaucus atlanticus), one of the world’s rarest and most beautiful mollusks
that’s an alien, that’s an alien dragon baby. that’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen
YES FINALLY BACK ON MY DASH I LOVE THIS LIL FUCKER. LOOK AT IT
ohy my fucking god i finally know how my patronus looks like
So of course I read up on it. It’s even more beautiful when it’s in the water, not collapsed like it is on the original pic. It also freakin’ eats Portuguese Man o’Wars. They are also hermaphroditic because, damn, they so pretty, no way are they gonna hit anything but theyselves.
My spirit animal.
nothing will stop me from believing this is a baby lugia
omg I want one :o
GUYS THAT’S A POKEMON
Correct, sorta. The sea swallow/dragon probably isn’t the one the pokemon are based on, not entirely at least. The side wings might have been put on the blue one. For colors and head/butt bits? The chromodorids are a decent bet.
Either way, nudibranchs are awesome.
