    Home made pizza

    I used some very soft mozzarella for 60% of the cheese slices... and then sprinkled four other Italian cheeses, Parmesan, Romano, Asiago ...etc... on top of that... Some high end pepperoni tasted good .. but I actually had to remove some salami that I bought since it didn't mix flavors well. The onions brought out the taste of everything.. The Italian sausage was perfect... not too hot. Mangia Mangia everyone....

    Home made pizza

    I made a home made pizza that turned out wonderful.... however it was quite expensive .. ($45) for all the ingredients.
  6. or maybe your child just isn't "smart" enough?
  7. I also feel they should not permit the animals there.
  8. I did not know they permit enter with pets. The last article I read say the contrary about dogs tongue, specially because my dogs love to lick me when I am lying down on the floor working out ? A Wisconsin man had to have his hands and legs amputated because of a bacterial infection he got after being licked by a dog — here's what to know about the risks Greg Manteufel, a 48-year-old Wisconsin man, recently had to have both of his hands and his legs amputated after contracting a bacterial infection, most likely from a dog's licks. Up to 74% of dogs and 57% of cats carry the bacteria that can cause these infections, Capnocytophaga canimorsus, but in most cases, people only get infected after being bitten. Approximately 30% of people who do get infected die, which is why it's essential to see a doctor if you are bitten by an animal. The vast majority of the time, a lick from a dog is totally harmless. But in exceedingly rare circumstances, that lick can lead to a dangerous and potentially lethal infection from a common bacteria. Greg Manteufel, a 48-year-old Wisconsin man, recently had to have both of his hands and his legs amputated after contracting the bacteria Capnocytophaga canimorsus. That most likely came from the tongue of a dog, potentially his own, according to local news reports. https://www.businessinsider.com/wisconsin-man-amputated-after-dog-lick-capnocytophaga-canimorsus-2018-8
  9. The food display looks enticing to you doesn't it? Well... it also is lickable and a temptation that some dogs also find irresistible Think twice before wrapping your fingers around that sandwich or wrap.. And no... this wasn't a "service dog" Public Health in restaurant establishments in the United States has plummeted over the past few years unfortunately. People years ago would have been horrified by this. But isn't a dogs tongue supposedly cleaner than a humans? (why do I doubt this wives tale?)

    Sopa Borracha

    It seems it is, but the version I know is different flour I found this: Ingredients Cake 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking powder 1/8 teaspoon salt 5 eggs, separated 3/4 cup sugar Rum Syrup 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 cinnamon sticks, each broken in half 2 strips (2 inches long) lemon zest 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice 3/4 cup raisins 3/4 cup pitted prunes, coarsely chopped 1/3 cup light or dark rum 1/3 cup dry or sweet sherry Preparation 1. Make the cake: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8- or 9-inch squaare baking pan. 2. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. 3. In a bowl, with an electric mixer, beat egg yolks and sugar until creamy. In a separate bowl, using a wire whisk or electric mixer, beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold the beaten egg whites into the yolk mixture. Then fold the combined egg mixture into the flour mixture, stirring only enough to wet the dry ingredients. 4. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife tip inserted in the center comes out clean. 5. Meanwhile, make the rum syrup: In a saucepan, combine the sugar, cinnamon sticks, lemon zest, lemon juice, and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring briefly, until the sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to low and cook for 7 to 8 minutes. Add the raisins and prunes during the final minute of cooking. 6. Remove the syrup from the heat and stir in the rum and sherry. Allow syrup to cool for at least 30 minutes. Remove cinnamon sticks and lemon zest before assembling serving portions. 7. To assemble: Cut the cake into 16 squares and arrange on a platter. Spoon syrup over each square until well saturated, topping each with some of the raisins and prunes. http://www.latina.com/food/recipes/sopa-borracha-rum-cake

    Sopa Borracha

    How do you make this? Is it sweet with rum? (I'm guessing it's like rum cake?)

    Sopa Borracha

    My favourite dessert on the eve of the Day of the Dead ?
  15. ‘Fritada con Maduros’ is a favorite dish here in Ecuador. Traditionally cooked in large bronze or copper pots and stirred with big wooden spoons. Cubes of pork meat including the fat are fried for several hours in bubbling pork lard until it’s crispy on the outside. Not approved by any Healthy Heart Group but nonetheless an amazingly tasty dish. ‘Maduros’ are ripe plantain/green bananas. They are often fried in butter and are wonderfully sweet and tasty. Along the side of the road or in front of homes in residential neighborhoods you can often find women cooking and serving plates of Fritada y Maduros. Something to sample on a visit here?

  16. The world's largest pork and hog producer was forced to destroy more than 50,000 pounds of its products after a worker allegedly urinated on the production line. Over the weekend, production at a Smithfield Foods packing plant in Smithfield, Virginia, came to a sudden halt after an employee allegedly urinated while on the production line. Footage of the incident obtained by local news outlet WAVY shows a worker removing his gloves and leaning up against a counter, apparently urinating. The worker is just feet away from other coworkers and directly next to the meat-filled production line, according to the video. The worker appears to finish urinating, put his gloves back on, and move to continue his work. Smithfield said in a statement that more than 50,000 pounds of product were disposed of following an internal investigation of the incident. "The facility immediately halted production, fully cleaned the processing line, and sanitized all equipment multiple times before resuming operations," Smithfield said in a statement to Business Insider. "The employee has been suspended pending a complete investigation." The statement continued: "The facility and its employees' immediate response and corrective actions to this isolated incident reflect the company's commitment to ensuring the safety and quality of its products." Smithfield Foods is a $15 billion company with brands including Smithfield, Eckrich, and Nathan's Famous.

    The King of Tacos

    I don't really like the corn in the flour. I prefer it ground up. Other than that... it does look delicious.
