I don't usually like chicken, but your chicken looks amazing.

#healthyboy snack time

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:25:51  

Easy and relatively healthy. Stove top cooked popcorn

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:26:31  

Veggie oil on the bottom of a saucepan. Just enough to coat the base + a little

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:26:49  

Add 3 kernals of popping corn

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:30:16  

Once they pop it signifies the oil is hot enough

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:32:02  

Put lid on of course lol

Deleted User 2017-07-30 04:37:56  

If you keep shaking the saucepan as you cook as well as dump out the popped kernals into a large serving bowl when they push the lid up you will end up with 0 wasted kernals and 0 burned popcorn

Season with salt in moderation

Erika 2017-07-30 04:47:03  

I just use a hot air popper to avoid using oil. But fresh popped popcorn is one of my favorite snacks.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 05:34:36  

@Erika im not a fan personally of single use appliances.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 05:34:48  

but even so ive always wanted one

Grenadier 2017-07-30 10:29:27  

Is that butter I see in the unpopped kernel picture? Also the only single-use appliance I will advocate for is an Egg Cooker. Huge timesaver and conveniance and it's tiny.

Deleted User 2017-07-30 12:21:15  

Veggie oil. No butter.

Grenadier 2017-07-30 12:21:50  

Oh I see it now. It was the three test kernels that had already popped.

Erika 2017-07-30 15:32:35  

@Deleted User same. I hate single use appliances, but I make so much popcorn that it's worth it. And most thrift stores have a hot air popper in their appliance section, so you can usually get one for like, $5.

Are Brussel sprouts trad

Logan 2017-08-02 02:59:00  

You jest. They are the tradest.

ophiuchus 2017-08-02 02:59:23  

They're really good I've discovered

ophiuchus 2017-08-02 02:59:43  

Never had them growing up, but just sautéed in olive oil with salt and pepper they're great

Erika 2017-08-02 03:15:27  

I love brussel sprouts

Erika 2017-08-02 03:15:47  

That looks delicious. What's the protein? Chicken?

ophiuchus 2017-08-02 03:19:19  

Pork chops!

Erika 2017-08-02 03:55:25  

ugh. I could go for a nice thick cut fried pork chop right now

Erika 2017-08-02 03:55:34  

with mashed potatos

ophiuchus 2017-08-02 04:00:50  

Cooked that individual with some thyme and butter, scraped the bits with some red wine vinegar and olive oil

Erika 2017-08-02 04:29:36  

this is a public channel. don't talk like that ☺

Freestyle sourdough experiment, measuring nothing and just doing it by eye/feel.... turned out great!

snakob95 2017-08-02 16:00:14  

That looks great @Marlow sourdough is the best bread!

Marlow 2017-08-02 16:00:56  

I let it proof overnight at room temperature... I think long proofing time is the secret to great bread

Marlow 2017-08-02 16:02:32  

it's a delicate balance tho, depending on the yeast you use, it could proof too quickly and then "fall" and you get bread that has a tight, dense crumb, which is not good. You want air pockets, and depending on your preference, you want them big, but now so big it becomes difficult to spread stuff on it

Marlow 2017-08-02 16:03:28  

but yeast cultured in your own sourdough starter is usually more robust than store-bought "active dry yeast" or even instant or rapid rise yeast, which is more suitable for bread machines.

Marlow 2017-08-02 16:03:53  

the key ingredient in any good bread is time.... you gotta have patience every step of the way
