Adventures in Cooking

Got the trager out and made some burgers today. Went pretty well. Not really an adventure but still fun :blush:

It was a national news story several years ago. Surprised me but I still ate some. Lightly fried fish fillets!

The standards have been lowered and the verbiage changed from what I found today looking for it. Now they call it ‘impaired’ waterways I guess. Fish/Seafood itself is a major contributor to plastic ingestion evidently.

Humans consume the equivalent of a credit card worth of plastic every week. Plastic is in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat:

Been doing smash burgers lately! I didn’t think I would end up liking them this much. Turns out, smash em quick and you can’t mess them up.

Would love to find a really good recipe for bread machine pizza doe that makes good bread sticks. It is hard to find good bread sticks in my area. I have to travel 80 miles for a decent bread stick.

This standard dough makes a nice sheet of breadsticks. It’s the crust type not the fluffy airy single stick ones.

These are okay but more crust like imho too. I just end up using the dough recipe above since you can make it in big batches and keep for a couple of weeks or longer.

Saw the Great Pacific Garbage patch is now twice the size of Texas or 3 times the size of France. Mostly plastic! It bashing around constantly is what’s created all the micro-plastic it said. Shrimp is full of micro-plastic as are all the bottom dwelling fish/creatures.

A bad picture of a double patty smash burger! The ‘fry sauce’ is good but a bit redundant if you like pickles and ketchup already.

Also smoked some jerk marinated chicken legs. This brand is authentic and spicy!

I don’t have the pictures, but try oatmeal with water (no milk) plus cheese and chilli on top. Might sound disgusting but taste amazing IMO.

Mediterranean food is delicious, if it works it works!

I should’ve taken a picture (so the ones below aren’t mine) but we made this tonight (and didn’t garnish with fresh sage like pictured and made coconut “bacon” instead of shiitake “bacon” since that’s what we had):

Roasted Butternut Squash Pasta w/ a Cashew Cream Sauce

Then we also had an easy massaged kale salad w/ a simple lemon-tahini dressing and crispy chickpeas (again not my picture):
