1 + 1/2 cup besan flour in a bowl and gradually whisk in enough water to make a smooth paste mix in about 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons of umeboshi vinegar after that's incorporated, whisk in more water gradually until you get a crepe batter consistency. set aside

heat oil (i use a tablespoon each of avocado and extra virgin olive oil), add mustard seeds until they crackle, add dry rosemary, cumin, black pepper,turmeric, add a medium-big onion (halve the onion, cut each in half and slice vertically to make 1-1/2 "x 3/8" pieces) stir until slightly translucent add a big handful of asparagus cut into 1" pieces stir and turn off heat.

slowly pour over batter, all round while shaking the pan to evenly distribute the veggies. put heat on low/medium and cover the pan, slightly ajar with the lower part of the lid toward the rivets (because the batter gets stuck to the rivets and it hardens like concrete and the condensed steam will help with cleanup)

when the top is fairly dry and it doesn't jiggle much when you shake the pan you can slide it onto a large plate and put the pan over the plate, flip it over. cook the other side with no cover for a few minutes. cut the farinatta while it's still cooking so steam escapes, when the steam slows down a bit turn it off (it should be done). it's great plain but it's great with hot sauce or sriracha. a side of tomatoes or salad...

what will my friends' page look like when i change it to the 'new' version? will it still be black with gray sections and white font so it doesn't hurt my eyes or will it look like my dreamwidth friends' page where it's a bright white field and black font that hurts my eyes so bad that i don't read the friends' page on dreamwidth?

...i'm afraid to allow the 'new' version.

grrr. why do they assume that no one told her, told her the nature and means of his revenge? the fact that the whole town would have known, the people she did business with, the places she worked at would have heard, would likely have participated in 'her' funeral procession and the burial of what was assumed to be her body. when she was rescued i'm sure she would have noticed that more than a few of the townsfolk in the marketplace looking at her with terror (like they'd seen a ghost) and making whatever gestures with their hands to ward off evil. why do they assume that all this would go unnoticed by the girl? i would assume that her interrogation would be demanding, loud and painful for all of those who didn't tell her to begin with.

there are so so many fan fictions that i have read in this fandom that use the same premise, that no one tells her what really happened and she merely believes she'd been kidnapped. surely her kidnapper would have bragged, someone would have told her on the way home so she would understand why people were acting so strangely when they saw her.... but NO!!  no one tells her and they all insist that it is the responsibility of the one who was hurt most by her 'death' so that he could relive the anguish and suffering all over again. GRRR.
