I don't know whether I'm in a real position to judge you, Max, but I totally agree with Russ and mordecai about your progress. You really worked on it. Ignore the hate, keep it up! You're doing a great job!
Sadly, I don't have much to post these days. Mostly it's just comfort food, which is good, but not picture-worthy. Like what I've already posted about, sauté some onions, add cubed chicken breast, add green curry, sear a little, add water, broccoli and yellow/red paprika, steam a little, add crème fraîche, finish, done. Simple yet tasty comfort food.
