How to cook beans – green pods

Do you want to cook the most delicious beans? Let’s share my recipe for cooking beans, which I have been using for many years. I learned how to cook according to the recipes of traditional Russian cuisine. You can use fresh beans or frozen in bags, which are sold in stores. The description of the recipe will be based on frozen beans, as this is a very popular option.

Green beans can be sold in two main types: frozen and fresh. Frozen beans in pods are usually already cooked, so it’s quite simple to cook them – put them in a heated pan and fry for 20-30 minutes. If the bean pods are fresh, then they must first be thrown into boiling water and boiled in salted water for 10-15 minutes (~ a tablespoon of salt per 2 liters of water).

My favorite glass

I have been looking for my lilac glass cup on the market for a long time, because I really liked it – right now I drink white tea from it. In general, a metamorphosis has recently occurred to me in terms of views on dishes. If in childhood I drank tea exclusively from large cups with three-dimensional drawings. Now I prefer translucent dishes – glass, ceramics.

And then I found it – my love began to be sold on the Internet https://ya.cc/fLzpK !

Paint the walls in chroma key and bluescreen

When we were renovating an apartment that was supposed to be a video studio, we decided to paint the walls green and blue to make chromakey and bluescreen to cut out the background on the video. We came to the repair paint shop, where you could choose ready-made paint or mix any shade you wanted. We looked through the catalog and found two colors that we thought would be great for video production – a bright pure green and a rich blue:

Green chroma key paint – Dulux Bindo 7, Color 30GY 34/600, base BC WY2 212 WG1 18 WW1 54.1

I saw a cockroach at home! How to deal with cockroaches?

A terrible thing happened – I put on a jacket, under which a cockroach was hiding. When I took off the jacket from the hanger, I immediately noticed him, the cockroach ran and tried to hide, then the bear cub slapped him in time. From that moment on, I started a massive house cleaning and learning all the ways to deal with cockroaches, since I already lived in apartments with cockroaches a couple of times in my life, and it was the worst thing you can imagine in your home. In this apartment, since we moved into it more than 5 years ago, we have not met a single cockroach. So this was the first cockroach that caught my eye inside the apartment. What to do now?

Repair in the apartment – notes and mistakes

Initial data – a two-room apartment in a half-killed state, old tiles and plumbing on the walls in the bathroom. Linoleum on the ceiling. The toilet has bare walls. Throughout the apartment, old wallpaper is glued on the ceiling and walls, linoleum on the floor. We had a task to make a complete cosmetic renovation of all premises. In the bathroom, we decided to do white tiles with white grout, which turned out to be a very cool idea. Install a new bath. Washing machine. And choose all the bathroom furniture from wood. After 5 years of use, the bathroom looks like new, the wood has not deteriorated. We always keep the door to the bathroom open so that moisture does not accumulate there. Of the errors in the bath, it is worth noting the low-quality border between the bath and the wall – we chose a plastic one that is attached to silicone. Doesn’t look very neat. And we did not like how they did the bottom under the bathroom – an uncomfortable base was built, access to the pipes was complicated.
