Getting High and Making Albondigas!

Hola Amigas,

This week I am making some traditional albondigas soup while getting high because this is the only way I know how to cook! Plus my finger is still really gross and weird so I wanted comfort food and albondigas is my favorite of all the sopas.

For the Albondiags (Meatballs)

2 packages of impossible meat

2 chia seed egg ( 2tbs of chia seeds + 6 tbs of hot water, let sit for 5-10 minutes)

1 clove of garlic

1/4 of small onion

Salt & Pepper to taste

Mix your chia egg, then set aside. Place garlic and onion in a mortar or blender, with salt and pepper crush together. Place in a mixing bowl with impossible meat and chia binder. Mix, and then roll into balls. Set aside

For the Soup:

3 tomatoes

1/4 of small onion

2 cloves of garlic

3 chilies in adobo with some of the sauce

1/2-1 bunch of cilantro (depending on preferences)

Vegetables ( I usually do 2 zucchinis, 2 carrots, potatoes. Will add other veggies if they need to be used up)

2-3 tbs of butter/oil

Water

Heat a soup pot on medium heat, and let the butter/oil melt. Place your veggies in, add a little salt and pepper, and let cook up for flavor.

Optional is to let the veggies mainly cook, and remove the veggies so they don’t over cook. Or you can leave in the pot and cook with the albondigas. I chose to remove the veggies to keep some of the crunch in them.

In a blender, or blender cup; add 3 roughly chopped tomatoes, 2 cloves of garlic, 1/4 of onion, 3 chilies with adobo, fill with water start with approx 32 oz of water. Let blend until liquified.

Pour the tomato mix into the soup pot, and then add another approx 32 oz of water. Bring up to a simmer, and then add your meatballs carefully. I like to place the albondigas in a laddle then slowly drop them in. Add as much or as little cilantro as you want, then let cook in a simmer for 15-20 minutes. If you removed the vegetables let cook for 15 minutes, then add the vegetables back in the soup. I like to let the soup come to a quick boil to warm the veggies and then remove from heat and serve.

If you want to make this with cannabis add a pad of cannabutter or some cannaoil to your own boil.

Usually you eat this with a bowl of rice on the side, or you can put rice in your bowl and pour the soup over the rice. I hope you love this soup, and it makes your week feel a little bit better!

Te quiro mis amigas!

Crazy Easy Infused Butter

Welcome back to another Munchie Monday’s in my Kush Kitchen!

Guys, I used to hate making infused butter aka cannabutter. It was a long and smelly process but it’s necessary for any Kush Kitchen.

After some research and experimentation, I have found the best way to make you own cannabutter!

I am obsessed with my Instant Pot, like my immersion blender, it’s well loved and has become a staple in my kitchen. I’m sure any other pressure cooker would work just as well, but you may need to tweak the time or settings.

I knew I needed to make 2 sticks of cannabutter, with one stick containing 100mg of extract

200mg (mg I want in butter) / .7125 (Potency) = 280.701mg

280.701mg * 1000 = .281 g of wax needed. Further rounded to .28g of wax.

*** I used more cannabis CO2 oil in mine because future recipes require it. The butter amount remains the same.

Place your concentrate into a glass dish or canning jar. The instant pot comes with a wire rack for steaming, or use a different way elevate the dish. Place dish and fill the pot with water. The water level should rise midway up the container.

Close your pressure cooker and seal. Set to high pressure for 7 minutes, turn off warming feature.

When the instant pot finishes decarbing our concentrate, do an instant realize. You can cover the steam spout with a towel.

Place softened butter into your container. It will begin to melt and mix into our oil. Place the lid on with the valve set to seal. Place on high pressure for 15 minutes.

Once again do an instant release of pressure. Mix the butter to ensure even dispersion. Remove from instant pot, and blend for about 5 minutes while bowl cools down.

Place in fridge and let cool for 1-2 hours.

That’s it! Literally!

You can use this butter in cookies, brownies, to flavor your veggies! Use in a ‘baked’ potato, or mix with cinnamon for a cinnamon butter to pair with toast or biscuits.

Don’t use this to sear or fry food as that will cause the THC to degrade. This butter is meant to add flavor and should not be used if the temperature will go over 350F

How are you gonna use this recipe? What infused recipes would you like to see?

Authentically Yours,

In yet another “Getting To Know Me” post (hopefully you sang this like in the King & I) I will be explaining my sign off of choice!

Authentic is defined as ” of undisputed origin; genuine. ” If something is authentic, you know it is real and you don’t have to second guess anything.

I crave authenticity. I doubt that makes sense, but its the easiest way I can explain why being authentic means so much to me. I grew up hiding my self hatred and horrible home life. I always felts like I was playing a role because no one cared about my true self.

Thankfully, I met my wonderful husband Kyle and he has helped me to regain my self, my voice, and my authenticity.

What you see is what you get with me. It has taken me years to become comfortable with myself, and honestly I still have ways to go.

Be prepared; this blog is not for the lighthearted. I will be open and honest about my life, I will probably cuss because I like to cuss. Also I am an out Liberal Feminist Latina so if you don’t like any of those words, then this may not be the blog for you!

Authentically Yours,

Kelcie Kush
