Recipe/News Roundup 01

Another Block Roundup

Yeehar. This is going to be exciting. Did you notice my enthusiasm? No? Good. This is meant to be my recipe blog and I've been so busy that I've dug up new recipes and ideas to try but haven't had time to truly get into the Cooking Zone and experiment.

However, you'll still get a giggle and some inspiration from the bunch of food links I've collected and curated over the last year or so.

Today the "Enjoy!" comes first. 

A few recipes to start off with, and now a story that I've heard with a dozen variations but always the same message - we're becoming "food dumb."

Can't Possibly Be True

In a study published in the December issue of the Journal of Environmental Psychology, researchers from Furman University asked children ages 4 to 7 to identify whether certain foods come from plants or animals, and which things were OK to eat. The results were shocking, as reported: About a third of the kids thought eggs came from plants. Forty percent thought hot dogs and bacon were vegetables. Almost half thought french fries were animal-based. More than a third thought chicken nuggets were plant-based, even though the word "chicken" is right there in the name. Another third said fish were not OK to eat. Seventy-six percent said cows were not OK to eat. We have some work to do, folks. [, 11/10/2021],OK%20to%20eat

I'm not sure how many links is too much. I think this already is, but I'll welcome discussion.

As you probably know by now, I'm not a chef and the closest I got to commercial cooking was helping a then-local food co-op with preserving excess foods. My real passion is writing up good recipes (and please note the fact that I've included the above links based only on me wanting to check them and develop "my style" recipes based on them) and the rest of my passion is writing about unjust and fraudulent food practices and politics, unjust politics, the state of the planet and the mountains of waste we've wastefully created, technology both good (I praise and extol that kind) and bad (where I just tell you why I think it's bad and then hope everyone boycotts it) and how to use technology to recover from the waste and weather problems we're having.

If you want to see what I mean, dive into the Footnote just below. 


In addition to writing these articles I'm also experimenting with ways of recycling waste that can be done at the cottage industry or community hub levels, not so much because it'll magically convert 100% of local waste into recycled useful articles, but because people who are doing these sorts of activities are likely to talk about them to people in their community, and so raise even more awareness of the issues and dangers.

So please - if you can at all spare some time, take a look at my News Stand where you'll see live updated links to everything I publish; And take some time and share the links to the News Stand and this article with your friends and readers.
