Soup

Moving in 20 days. Trying to eat some of my food in my freezer. I had some deep fried chicken breasts that I didn't eat all of, so I froze the leftovers. They have been in the freezer for months.

I took my small rice cooker and covered the bottom of the pot with pasta. I added one frozen chicken breast and package of frozen vegetables. Then I added a lot more water than I needed for the pasta and let it cook. The chicken broke up into small pieces, and even though I had to remove some bones, the whole thing turned into a delicious soup. But to make it even better, I added half a container of pasta sauce and the result was wonderful.

Burger King

I get coupons in the mail from Burger King.  This included 3 coupons for a killer deal, which is for two croissant sandwiches, small hash browns, and a small coffee for just $4.  Although I don't normally eat breakfast, I have gone a couple of Sundays in a row to get this deal, and it makes for a most satisfying breakfast at not much cost.

The Oiling of America


I have no idea if what is said here is true.  I am making no claims. I think that it deserves further research.  Wikipedia says "Price's core assumptions as contrary to contemporary medical understanding." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weston_A._Price_Foundation)

That Sugar Film

Just watched "That Sugar Film" on Amazon Prime. It is more like I skimmed through the film because I didn't want to be bothered with all the details and some of the flashy gimmicks the film uses to present information.

The bottom line is that an Australian man changed his diet to include 40 teaspoons of sugar per day, which according to the film is the typical consumption of the average Australian male. His total daily calorie intake was about the same as it was before he went on this diet. After 60 days he had gained a significant amount of weight and showed signs of fatty liver disease, insulin resistance, and other health problems. Then he went off of the sugar diet and within a couple of months his health and weight had returned to normal.

re: popcorn popper

Been using these microwave popcorn bowls for around 15 years ...


I used to use a kitchen scale to measure my ingredients exactly.  Now I just throw stuff into the bowl without measuring.

My recipe for perfect popcorn is ...

Place the following in the microwave popcorn bowl ...

4 oz of premium popcorn
1/4 to 1/2 ounce of Lite Salt,  This salt has a flavor that I like.    (Or salt after you pop it.  If you add the salt before you pop it, then you need more salt because at least half of it will end up in the bottom of the bowl.) 
2 oz of canola oil.  (Oil will cover popcorn and salt.   After dozens of uses, the oil will give the bowl a yellow color.)

It takes about 3 to 4 minutes to microwave.

Sugar vs. Fat

I watched this great BBC documentary called "Sugar vs. Fat.".  

I found a version on youtube, but it the youtube version looks too dark:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nT-vACI-jg
