Just about to prepare a nice serving of sprouts.

Instead of dripping a little maple syrup over them when they're done, I'll make something like the Martha Stewart dipping sauce with Dijon, maple syrup, and apple cider vinegar and a little salt. It sounds good, and I'm liking the whole Martha/jail/SnoopDogg/dope connection.

Getting little Johnny to eat his vegetables is simple, and the same solution works for giving pills to a dog. 5 of these left for a snack later!

Im doing a keto diet at the moment and one of the recipes i love has ended up being Cheese tacos. and by that i mean tacos themselves made form nothing but cheese. You place a third of a cup of grated cheese in a littel mound on a baking tray and bake in the over for m8-10 mins at 375. It melts and then kind of solidifoes into a round. Take them out and drape them over a wooded spoon proppod up in the air and they become cheesey taco shapes. Then you can add whatever filling you want. I didnt expect to like them much but they are actually really good , just maybe a little greasy in your hands.

Something similar results if you make cheese on toast when some of the cheese melts and falls off onto the tray. Those parts are a bonus

Does everyone else rinse out the bottom of the ketchup bottle and use it in soup or stew?

That's just made me chuckle, the reason given for deleting a post on a food thread : spam 😂

I couldn't resist pinching this from Pprune...


On Nevsky Bridge a sentry stood
Chewing his beard for lack of food.
He said "It's tough this stuff to eat
But a damn sight better than shredded wheat!"

Never thought of doing that BUT I do stuff salad bits into mayo jars to scoop up the last bits.

I would never have thought of that but I should have done. My early (very early) spagbols were flavoured with ketchup.

When I use a cook-in sauce from a jar, after pouring most of it I usually add a drop of water, put the top on and give it a rigorous shake, getting as much sauce as I can before rinsing the jar out for recycling.

It was wing night at el casa de Caretaker. I like to marinate them in olive oil, chili powder, cumin, s&p, and this time some of the black onion seed.





Some of them get lovingly wrapped in vitamin B...


And after 15 min each side in the 400F tanning booth, they get tossed in a little Buffalo wing sauce and join the chips (sea salt and malt vinegar) with ranch dressing on the side.


I paired this with a lager.

Guacamole is one of those great foods that sounds like you're just clearing your throat.

With some fresh cilantro, touch of cayenne and a little sea salt it's soooo easy!


With nearly the same ingredients minus the avocado I might make some salsa fresca too.

There are several longer videos of this guy, but I don't think they have the jazz. If I was ever in London I'd be tempted to find the

Every time check my friend's house while he's up north, I rip out a couple of handfuls from the back yard to take home. If I put some in a curry I'd call them Chive of India.
