Breakfast This Morning: Divorced Eggs Fruit And Surprise Pics!

Divorced eggs?! Whaaaat? Funny, huh? And it is because they are served on the same plate with different sauces on top of them, usually green and red on a bed of french fries or two tortillas with two slices of ham. They are delicious!

PROCEDURE:

Heat the oven to 160°C/140°C fan/gas 3. Mix together the harissa pesto or paste, lemon zest and juice, ground spices, fresh coriander and plenty of black pepper in a bowl.

Put the lamb in a roasting tin and rub with the marinade (see Make Ahead). Roast for 30 minutes, uncovered, then pour 300ml water around the lamb and cover the tin tightly with 2 sheets of foil. Roast for 4 hours, basting with the cooking juices once or twice, until tender.

Transfer the meat to a chopping board and rest for 20-30 minutes, loosely covered with foil. Skim any surface fat off the pan juices, then taste and keep warm (or simmer briskly for 5-10 minutes to intensify the flavour if it’s not punchy enough).Meanwhile, prepare the salad. Put the cucumber, radishes and almonds in a serving bowl and toss with most of the herbs. Drizzle with the argan oil, honey and lemon juice along with plenty of salt, and toss well. Scatter over the remaining herbs and pomegranate seeds. Serve dish, carved into slices, with the salad and crispy roast potatoes.

Best French Fries for a Great Tremendous Messy Eating

There are so many varieties of french fries around the world, that it would be practically impossible to show them all in one blog post. That is why I have decided to do it in several parts, being this one the first. I hope you enjoy it and your mouth gets watery.

What’s a truffle? A truffle is a strong-smelling underground fungus that resembles an irregular, rough-skinned potato, growing chiefly in broad-leaved woodland on calcareous soils. It is considered a culinary delicacy and found, especially in France, with the aid of trained dogs or pigs.

SO YUMMY!

Lettuce is a great vegetable: it looks beautiful in your veggie yard, it is healthy on your plate and refreshing on your face.

My friend says lettuce and cucumber on her face work wonders. She looks 10-15 younger than her real age, that’s for sure!

Many of us have the goal of being strong and healthy now and in our 80’s and 90’s ( I personally want to celebrate my 100 year birthday on a bicycle or motorcycle, yes, Sir! ) If you want to be live a long life you need to start eating some anti-aging food and, for starters, leafy greens have to be on your plate every day, lots of them!

15 Things I Hate About Eating

food cooking eating dra martha castro noriega mexico

Things I hate about eating and eating habits

food cooking eating dra martha castro noriega mexico
  1. I hate that I have to count my calories mostly all the time so I don´t gain weight
  2. I would love to eat  beef medallions or a big chunk of steak everyday without knowing that if I did I would clog my arteries with triglycerides and…..oh no!
  3. Cooking everyday? Yup, gets awfully tiring doesn’t it, especially when I have hundreds of other things to do during the day.
  4. I over eat one day then I feel guilty
  5. Spilling food on my new blouse or dress.
  6. When I cannot control myself and have double servings, my belly feels pretty bad. Yes, I hate this feeling and then the guilt…sucks!
  7. I hate when people eat with an open mouth and make noises…it is gross!
  8. I can’t stand to eat with people who  don’t have manners at the table.
  9. I don’t like it when people want to impose their eating preferences on me: are you a vegan? I am not. Vegans  have this annoying way of preaching their beliefs upon others, it’s my choice and you can’t expect everyone to go vegan.
  10. Gluten in my food.
  11. GMO food…ugh!
  12. Having to unbutton my button after eating.
  13. Heartburn anyone?
  14. The food delivery people take too long…I lost my appetite by then.
  15. Oh, I hate eating alone.
