    You are brave. I saw it on an episode of Chopped once and all the chefs complained about having to cook with it.

    I was born in Thailand (although not genetically Thai). I still understand why hotels in Thailand often have a "no durian" sign.

    Update: @Hard I think it smells a little like rotting meat, but different enough that that's not really an accurate description. Definitely not like poo.

    Every time I hear of it I hear someone saying it smells like rot or poo. I... don't get the appeal.

    Never seen or smelled it in person though so it's difficult to say as if people like it, there *has* to be some kind of goodness about it?

    Those sound like they would be AMAZING if you did something to make the potato spicy... But, that's just me. We all know that I like just about everything to be spicy.

    I have been faithfully rock climbing twice a week for the last few months and have actually gotten moderately good at it! Next order of business on that agenda is learning to lead climb which I want to do SO BAD! I'm skilled enough for class at the rock where I climb, but climbing partner/boyfriend is not quite there yet. You need to be very solidly a 10c/d climber, he sometimes still struggles on 10a/b. Oh, and if you are interested in what that means: Guide to rock climbing grades.

    Unfortunately, my back is not thrilled about the climbing. I really need to do more physical therapy, but I won't have insurance that covers it until January. So, I have to keep waiting. I stopped going in July because it was too expensive.

    For food, I've been trying to do less meat. I was pretty successful last week, this week has been a different story. However, I did make Copycat Olive Garden Minestrone Soup. I loosely followed this recipe, which is vegan. I doubled the all the vegetables, including canned tomatoes, and left out one of the cans of white beans. Next time I will add some extra broth to make it soupier, all the extra veggies made it pretty chunky.

    Tonight I am making a vegan stir fry, but not really using a recipe. It will include:

    - Frozen green beans
    - Carrots
    - Zucchini
    - Mushrooms
    - Ginger
    - Rice noodles
    - Scallions
    - Soy sauce
    - Sesame oil
    - Chili powder
    - Rice vinegar
    - Almonds (forgot to buy cashews)
    Friends, waffles, work

    I tried durian popsicles!

    It's important to note that because they are popsicles, they don't smell like anything. Because the smell is a non-issue, when I tried it, I didn't see what the fuss was about. Yes it tastes a bit rotten, but not significantly more than mango IMO. It was like if you crossed mango with pineapple, and made it more... musty? It didn't gross me out at all. I liked it fine. Probably won't actively seek it out again, unless it's to try the actual fruit.

    The kimchi ramen was good! I accidentally doubled the amount of kimchi, so it was VERY potent, but I'm excited to remedy that when I eat the leftovers tomorrow. (Side note: I loved making the homemade broth. It made me want to start saving veggie scraps to make my own broth more often.)

    The tortellini soup was pretty underwhelming, for the amount of work involved. But then again, I've found that most pasta+cheese+red sauce recipes tend to underwhelm me unless I add something bitter to counteract the sweet and savory. So I added some frozen spinach, and it was a LOT better. (Would not make again, though. Too much work.)

    @Showbread you were right that the sweet potatoes were amazing with extra spice. I added a lot of sriracha tabasco, and they were SO GOOD.

    Belated New Year's Resolution: Eat more in keeping with the "plate" (i.e. the replacement for the food pyramid): more veggies and fruit and protein relative to pasta/wheat/grain. And hopefully wean myself off desserts, for the most part. I know that when you eat them less, you crave them less. And I only really eat them when they're around anyway. So best not to keep them around.
