fish and food

not, fish as food !

first things first, i got a new fish. i haven't had fish for awhile. i took the simple route this time around. i have a 1 gallon tank ($10 from wally world) and a $5 betta. i haven't read up on bettas yet. but, if they can live in a tiny cup on a dark shelf at the store, then they should be okay in this set up. and, they're classified as "beginner" fish. i think that's more my speed these days.

doesn't that look good?! i roasted some garlic the other day, and of course gobbled an entire bulb fresh from the oven (garlic toast!).

my pyrex was perfect for this. i fit four bulbs into the dish (with lid) and put it in the oven for about 1hr 20min at 350*. easy peasy. just slice off the top, sprinkle some salt, drizzle some olive oil, and bake. and once it's roasted, you can keep it in the fridge for up to a month (or longer?). it doesn't matter. it won't last a week here.
