    Today @RockyRoadHux and her Supreme Leader had a breakfast "all-you-can-eat" at the Sports Bar.

    The scrambled eggs were fantastic, plus watermelon, pineapple, bacon, a brownie and a belgian waffle with chocolate syrup. The tiramisu was delicious too.

    Breakfast of champions!

    This looks exactly like a Big Mac : D what is the Patty made of? I love the sauce Mc Donalds put in the Big Mac, unfortunately the Mc Donalds Veggie (haven't tried their Vegan Burger yet) Burger comes with Ketchup and Majonnaise and they don't let you switch sauces : P

    I like how they cut the spring onions... looks very stylish!

    I have no pictures, but I am currently translating a cooking show dedicated to Chinese cuisine. I am not a fan of predominantly sweet dishes offered in Chinese restaurants here, though I suspect that has more to do with the origin place of our small Chinese immigrant group.

    But the show introduced me to some other Chinese cooking traditions (Hunan, Cantonese...) and I started experimenting especially with marinating and ginger.

    Today, I marinated turkey (pure coincidence, Americans XD) strips in orange juice, apple cider vinegar and olive oil, garlic, ginger, crushed red pepper, salt and ground black pepper for about an hour. I dumped all in the wok and stir-fried for couple of minutes, added a teaspoon of flour to thicken the sauce.

    Impossible Burger and Beyond Burger are the two big names in plant-based meat that is supposed to taste like the real thing. I've had both several times but they are kinda pricey and not very healthy. To get them to taste like meat, they add a lot of saturated fat . Those burger patties are a brand called Gardein that come frozen. I think they taste great, and in my opinion most fast food burgers don't taste like meat either. lol

    I've got a los of pics of really good looking vegan food. Thought about starting a vegan thread, but not sure how much interest there would be.

    Yesterday the Supreme Leader's better half and myself had some dinner after watching the latest Spider-Man movie.

    First we went to a cocktail bar and shared a nice burger and some fries:
    IMG_20190707_171222.jpg

    But after finishing this meal we were still hungry, so we looked for more food. We stumbled upon this Italien restaurant called "Pizza Pepe". There we had a delcious pizza and this selfmade tiramisu:
    IMG_20190707_183841.jpg

    This place could become our regular hangout after going to the movies. We shall see.

    Two or three really ripe bananas. When they start to get spots, they are much sweeter. A cup or so of your choice of milk. I've found oat milk works best for me. A handful of ice and blend.

    You can get a tool for the pineapple:

    [​IMG]

    Take a knife and dice up some of the pineapple or put a few pieces in the blender and pulse. No need to add refined sugar.

    You can play around with it a little. If the bananas are sweet enough, you can add a spoonful of cocoa powder and still not need any added sugar. I like to add turmeric and flax seed, but not everyone likes turmeric. The flax seed adds a little extra fiver, plus some other nutrients, and I've noticed the smoothie has better texture with the ground flax seeds, but they are not essential.



    One of my favorites:

    That looks absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately Banana is the one fruit I really don’t like & as they are in most smoothiesI tend not to drink them. I much prefer just plain fruit juice or Non Alcoholic cocktails.

    Looks so good.

    Was at Cheesecake Factory had Chicken Riesling, Ultimate Margehrita, or course I felt a little buzz cause there was wine in the chicken, lol. And had Banana Cheescake.
