That's seriously gutsy to cook pasta in a pressure cooker. I can't see ever doing that, the perfect al dente point is so narrow. I'll stick with pressure cooking stocks and beans and stuff like that where it turns a 4 hour recipe into a 30 minute recipe.
I'm going to be nonstandard and recommend Always Coming Home, which is the most explicitly anthropological of her works and also happens to be the most solarpunk book she wrote. (More like far-future post-punk-solarpunk.)
Taking a shower the other day, I thought, hmm, I've been showering a lot this summer, not much rain, at some point the water tank's going to run dry.
Next shower, just as the soap went on...
Oh well, this gives me a chance to clean out that cistern, and it's got a slow leak so I need to waterproof it and also repair the outside.
Just hope that the drinking spring will start flowing strongly again soon, it's still producing but not enough to shower from. In the meantime, cleaned the gutters and am eyeing the weather radar as t-storms start to form.
It's interesting that this is gaining some traction. Also floated somewhat at the US state level, though there tends to be a wiff of not-serious about those.
It would be really weird at this point to be back in the same winter-time zone as everyone around me.
