I have a very good cherry brown mechanical keyboard that I can type with super well

but trying to do ANYTHING else like, you know, ctrl keys, breaks my brain because I've used the keyboard on my macbook pro for so long.

Y'all shitpost then go off to work, only to come back to hummus recipes!?

Best. Social. Platform. Ever.

That realisation that I like, have a can of chickpeas in the back of my cupboard

So I could just, like, make hummus?

Yesterday I made bagels.
Since the oven was hot, I baked the last of my batch of pre-made frozen cookie dough.

So now I have two cookies left, just out of eye sight, taunting me.

They will be delicious treats after a long day of work.
