Take 1 big tomato (or 2 mid-size tomatoes), blanch them and put them on the side. Add a spoonful of oil in a pot or cooker (depending on what you have). Chop 1/2 an onion fine and add it to the oil till they turn a little pink. When they do, add 1/2 teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste and mix this well. Now add the blanches tomatoes to your cooker/ pot. Add salt to taste, 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of chilli powder, and 1 cup of water. Cook this for 5-8 minutes if you're using a cooker or for 15 minutes if you're using a pot. It's essentially cooked at that point but it needs to be blended to get that consistency as you see in the picture. You can use a blender or a wire mesh to do this. Ideally the gravy is supposed to be sweet, so depending on how sweet your tomatoes are, you can add 1 spoonful of sugar while you blend it.

For the potatoes - boil water in a vessel and peel 3-4 big potatoes while this boils. Cut the potatoes into cubes of you preferred size. Boil these potatoes and add salt. Remove and drain after they are boiled. Take a vessel and add 1 tablespoon of oil, 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds(black balls as I call em), 1 small green chilli (chopped in 2 pieces or more depending on your preference). Be careful when you add this to the oil as it may all sputter, but it's supposed to sputter, so it's all good. Lower the flame and add the potatoes at this point. Sprinkle 1/2 a teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of chilly powder and mix this up well. Cut the gas when you feel the potatoes are cooked. You don't want to over-cook this as it will get dryer as you cook it more, so it depends on the consistency you like.

For the potatoes there are a lot of variations ... like ... variation 1 - once the potatoes are boiled, add just the turmeric powder in the vessel with oil before adding the potatoes; variation 2 - once the potatoes are boiled, add the turmeric, chilli, cumin seeds and coriander powder to the oil before adding the potatoes; variation 3 - once the potatoes are boiled, add 1 table spoon of garam masala mix before adding the potatoes; etc.

Turmeric is pretty 'hot' in terms of spice which's why I must've mentioned to put like half a teaspoon of it versus the others. It's a different kind of heat! Well, the tomato gravy is actually sweet ^_^, the potatoes can be made a little spicy to off-set the sweetness of the tomatoes hehe, thus making a good counter-balance.

      This skyscale collection for GW2 is crazy huge. This is easily a larger collection than what was required for the Nevermore precursor. If it required a massive gold investment, this mount would basically be legendary status imo. wtf.

      I finally got the time to do some stuff again. I hope it lasts. I finished Stranger Things season 3 which was great and I got multiple hours in GW2. I almost have my 2 large festival achievements done for the big chests.  After that I'm going for my skyscale and warclaw mounts.

      Holy cow, I guess I'll be watching a crap ton of series this upcoming season. Funi is loaded on dubs. I'm a little irked that the new Fate series will be sub only out of everything tho. Fire Force and Dr. Stone are my most anticipated. Cop Craft and Astra Lost in Space look interesting... I see 2 new isekai series that could go either way. Master of Ragnarok set the bar super low, and Sheild Hero set it ultra high for the genre.

      Almost messed up my well by over using it trying to put some water in this pool.. now instead of slow filling it over the next couple weeks while it slowly becomes an algae disaster I'm buying a delivery of water instead. $160 for water.

      I have to say I've played many MMORPG's over the years from good to bad but I don't think I've ever played one that has consistently proceeded to exceed my expectations like FFXIV has and Shadowbringers has more than done so. I think this expansion ranks up there as probably one of my all time favorites RPG's in general and all time favorite FF game ever (yes beating out FFIX) that's how wonderful it is.
      Yea I know, FFXIV fanboy praising his addiction but SE and the XIV team have really outdone themselves with this expansion. The story is phenomenal from start to finish with a very emotional plot, some of the best dungeon's I've ever had the pleasure of grinding through (with the exception of one), phenomenal boss fights (that final fight is amazing, I can't wait to see the Extreme mode of it), great character writing (even better than before, I'm more attached to these NPC's then I ever was before), and an amazing soundtrack (I refuse to listen to music while playing in 90% of the zones because I love it so much). Granted this is just the base Shadowbringers, there's still two years of patches to go through and my opinions might change later on (I mean we still don't have raid access and the Nier 24-man doesn't launch until Oct) but I don't think I've ever felt this complete and satisfied with a game expansion/dlc. Yoshida and his team really outdid themselves this time and I look forward to the next two years of content and the next expansion to come.
      On another note I've learned that I can't do hardcore gaming hours anymore. After 3 days of 12-16 hour gaming sessions (Friday - Sunday) I'm really feeling my age (sad to say when I'm only 33). I've never been this physically and mentally exhausted in my life (and my job is both on a daily basis). Thank fucking god I'm on vacation this week to recover. Don't think I'll be doing this for the next expansion but is was totally worth it for the payoff we got in the end. Also thinking I should post updated pictures of my character since she's gone through some pretty drastic changes since the last time.
