Truth be told he is not a picky man but he likes contrast. Crispy with juicy. Sweet with Peppery. Salty with Fragrant. He does not eat for volume but for variety. Everyone says he's spoiled, I just think he's used to eating well because of his Momma and his Aunties and also his Pops cooks and cooks super well.
I made everything right down to the chips and rice.
We ate so dang much we passed out on the sofa mid sentence after dinner. That is THE funniest!
So of course I had to make Mr. Man 3 crunchy tacos with a side of mini super nachos.
well they look kind of mini. hee hee
I haven't been making much bread lately - these cooler temps test my patience so when I do buy bread - I get it from Fresh and Easy (their brand or iL fornaio) or Orowheat - these are the last 2 I have found without cottonseed nor high fructose.
I wish people really know the carcinogenic implications of consuming a lot of cottonseed and HiFruc...tsk tsk. That's like cooking on aluminum foil - that's the wrong kind of old school. Heavy metals in your system have many implications but a lot of Italian studies have been made that it actually contributes to Alzheimers and drops in IQ. I've never cooked on foil much - because I grew up in my restaurant and most of my stuff is restaurant grade so when it gets dirty I scrub it - if it's a bit caked on I soak it then scrub it - if it's really burnt on - I soak it and then bake it wet then scrub it. Basically I don't use aluminum foil to "preserve" my kitchenware. I don't use aluminum foil to save me some "work." Mr. Man has always had an adverse reaction to his food being wrapped in foil - he literally gets a crippling headache as if he has food poisoning. I heavily use parchment, stainless steel, wax paper for separating and vinyl wrap (huge saran wrap).
It is what it is. I just think it's funny when people think what's great is actually harmful.
The other week Mr. Man said he wanted oatmeal cookies. He said he wanted the JUICY raisins in there not the scrawny dried up ones - HAHA. A friend had sent us a vat of 7 grain oatmeal with flax and stuff and I wanted to try it in some cookies. I went to the store and why were the raisins like 4.50 for 12 oz??? I trolled the 99 cent only and found Mariani O R G A N I C raisins --- 8oz for 99 cents which is still better than 4.50 for 12 oz.
I took them to work...
These suckers were so good. HA!
And finally today:
I went in there this morning and bought 2 cases. 1 case is 40 lbs. $8 for 80lbs
It takes 40 lbs of oranges to make 10 - 12oz bottles plus 1 liter of 100% juice.
