Re: Today I Made:

Huh. I never posted the peach crumble I was so excited to have made this weekend. Our band did a house concert, and I really thought I wasn't going to have the time and energy to do anything homemade, and had thus consigned myself to bringing a store bought fruit bowl, crudités bowl, hummus and pita...

Re: Today I Made:

This weekend was grilling weekend, so I got to have all the grilled vegetables and fruits I could ever want. NOM. We finished up by making oven smores. It's this general concept, except in our house we use fluff because vegetarians - http://www.fivehearthome.com/2014/08/10/smores-dip-baked-in-skille...

Re: Today I Made:

Yesterday I made pizza with zucchini. Minimal effort on my part and unexciting, except I have come across a thing I can make that my whole household is happy about. This is sort of rare for us, as I am addicted to vegetables, and one of my other housemates basically doesn't eat many at all. And one ...

Had a houseguest this weekend, and got to actually do some cooking. Made a scallion, spinach and jack omelette for breakfast, and made egg curry, dahl and rice for dinner. Then we went out for pizza the next day, and we will never have to eat again. O_O

Re: Today I Made:

Yeah, I don't do chorizo, but I did do spinach. It was fine, except I do my eggs over hard because I hate runny yolk and don't really like scrambled that well. It meant I sort of had a bunch of egg that was fairly discrete, which doesn't actually work that well in a nacho context. *shrug*

Re: What is "Natural" - Is "Organic" the same thing?

Organic exists because you have a considerable consumer base with income more than sufficient for their lifestyle who can spend disposable income on food.
