Mexican Meatloaf

I got the idea for this on Chaya's blog.  She said that it was "based on mexican cooking without the beans".  Well, I threw in a can of beans.

I was a little afraid that it wouldn't hold together but it came our alright.  It crumbled a bit as eating it but not bad. 

I LOVED the cornmeal added to this.  I was surprised on how tasty and how much the corn flavor came through.  We loved this and I'll totally make it again. 

This makes a great freezer meal too. I actually made 3 meatloafs at once and froze them all for future meals.  Another tip is when you make this, just make two, one for now and one for later.

We ate this with an awesome Southwestern Cheesy Pasta. Recipe coming soon!

Mexican Meat Loaf Recipe
Adapted from Chaya's Comfy Cook Blog

The Hardest Working Pets in Town

Would you define earthworms as pets?  It is probably a stretch to do so, yet I am very fond of the earthworms in my two worm farms.

The worm farms take all our 'green' food waste, including vegetable and fruit scraps, tea bags and leaves and coffee grounds, and turn them into beautiful, dark worm castings and worm 'juice' that, when diluted, makes a fantastic liquid fertiliser.

I have two commercial worm farms, a rectangular one and a round one.  I have had them for at least the past decade and they continue to work beautifully.  About once a week I add a handful of lime to neutralise the acidity of food scraps, but that's about the only maintenance the farms require.

I once killed off my entire worm population during one of Adelaide's severe heatwaves, so I now bring the worm farms into the laundry if I think we are going to have a run of extremely hot days.  The composting worms are quite expensive to buy, so killing them off is not a good idea.

I love my worms so much that when we moved to Adelaide I brought tub of my Melbourne worms in the car.

My goal for next summer is to produce all the garden fertiliser I need on site.  I hope to use a combination of compost, chook poo and of course, the wonderful castings produced by my composting worms.

Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats

We have a marshmallow cupboard.  Well, it's not exclusively devoted to marshmallows but we call it the marshmallow cupboard.

I seem to have a knack for collecting marshmallows and there always seems to be like 5 bags of marshmallows in there at any given time. 

Truth be told, I don't even LIKE marshmallows.

So clearly it was time to use the marshmallows.

Did you know the bible has the word marshmallow in it?  Job 6:6.

So with marshmallows and a box of Rice Crispies in hand, I went searching the internet for a rice crispy treats. I wanted to find one with a twist to it. 

These were perfect.  Not too radical but it certainly elevated them up a notch or two. Browned butter seriously rocks!

The chocolate clump was my kids trying to decorate an already super sweet delicious bar with more sugar. 

Salted Brown Butter Crispy Treats Recipe
Recipe from Smitten Kitchen

4 ounces (1/4 pound or 1 stick) unsalted butter
1 10-ounce bag marshmallows
Heaping 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal (about half a 12-ounce box)

Butter (or coat with non-stick spray) an 8-inch square cake pan with 2-inch sides.

In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. It will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty. Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from the bottom as you do. Don’t take your eyes off the pot as while you may be impatient for it to start browning, the period between the time the butter begins to take on color and the point where it burns is often less than a minute.

As soon as the butter takes on a nutty color, turn the heat off and stir in the marshmallows. The residual heat from the melted butter should be enough to melt them, but if it is not, turn it back on low until the marshmallows are smooth.

Remove the pot from the stove and stir in the salt and cereal together. Quickly spread into prepared pan.

Salted Brown Butter Peanut Butter Crispy Treats

Same as above, just add 1/2 - 3/4 cup of peanut butter with the marshmallows until melted.  Drizzle with chocolate if desired.  I let the kids drizzle with chocolate and use sprinkles.

Let's start with the meat we eat. The top 4 companies control 80% of beef and pork we eat. Tyson is the largest meat company in the world! They have control over most of the meat we eat. What this means is our decision to purchase products from them encourages them to produce as much meat as possible economically as possible to increase your income.

Chicken farm facts:

• Due to its contracts with Tyson and other companies that just a farmer allowed the filmmakers to get his chicken coop.

• The chicken house discussed in the film has windows and fresh air moving through it every day - Tyson does not allow farmers to raise chickens in houses with windows. Most chickens never see daylight

• The chicken house that was discussed was full of chickens. Each day the farmer walked by the house to dispose of dead chickens.

• 1 farmer has about 300,000 chickens

· We grow chickens in 48 days - in nature it takes 2 or 3 times as long!

• Due to rapid growth and steroids to increase muscle tissue - bones of chicken can not bear the weight of the chicken and many of them are stationary.

Adjust accordingly

The old food pyramid on the information provided with the assumption that everyone could eat the same types and amounts of food. This made no sense for the average person. For example, according to the old food pyramid that were allowed to eat 6 servings of bread. Surprisingly, compensation and the serving is the same for a two years as it was for a growing adolescent. A well-informed person knew that the adjustment had to do, but do not know exactly how. As a result, this is why the age pyramid was difficult to understand and follow.

Many people think that the McDonald brothers of California started the fast food craze in America, but in reality, was the White Castle hamburger chain that actually started fast food history in America. J. Walter Anderson opened the first White Castle in 1916 in Wichita, Kansas, and people liked the cheap hamburgers, fries and cola offered. However, fast food really did not become common in America until after World War II, when Americans began to fall in love with their cars, and had free time and more money to spend on eating out.

The McDonald brothers

The real heroes of the story of fast food in America are Richard and Maurice McDonald, the two brothers who created the first McDonald's restaurant in 1948 in San Bernardino, California. They wanted their restaurant more efficient and profitable, so he devised a simple menu in a small building without any tables, so people took their food and ate in their cars. In 1953, the brothers had decided to franchise his idea, and two franchises opened in Downey, California and Phoenix, Arizona.

Getting Out of the Car Habit

Ever since I started travelling to work by bicycle I have been driving my car a lot less.  It's not just the work trips: I'm less inclined to drive my car anywhere.

For example, on Thursday I rode my bike to work and back home again.  I work a short day each Thursday so I was home by about 2 o'clock.  I then realised that I needed to put a cheque in the bank, and even though rain was threatening, instead of taking the car I walked to the bank.  

I didn't really think about it at the time, but after I came back home I realised that in the past I wouldn't even have considered walking to the bank.  I can't believe how many short trips I have driven in my life, when I could easily have walked.

The advantages of riding a bicycle or walking short trips instead of driving are enormous.  You become much more aware of the world around you.  You can smile and say g'day to others who are out and about.  Your level of fitness will improve.  And of course, you'll save petrol, which is good for your bank balance.

Of course, I still drive sometimes.  For instance, I haven't worked out how to manage a weekly grocery shop for six people on my bicycle yet, although I know if I had to I could do multiple trips on the bike.  I am wary of cycling at night as it doesn't feel safe, even with flashing lights on the bike.  And kids' sporting events are often too far away, and travelled via really busy roads, to make them safe for this nervous bike-riding mother and her children.

However, I often arrive at the weekend to discover that I haven't use the car since the previous weekend.  I am saving money and getting fitter in the process.  And it feels so easy.
