Behold!  The worst fried chicken recipe!

Salt: 1 pinch.  Nice

The curry is not a bad idea, but they're insane if they think it will not be a soggy mess in the microwave.

Did Pearl Forrester invent this recipe?! Is that her Chicken Surprise?

I don't really like curry, but everything up until the point where the microwave came into play seemed OK.
There was a time when I probably would have given it a try as a kind of experiment, but I'm past the point of any desire to actually cook in a microwave (fine for reheating some things, but not for cooking).

Only food I cook in the microwave are things that are cooked in boiling water, and even then only pre-mixed stuff like these:



Or if I'm in the mood for plain rice and don't feel like getting out the steamer.

Other than that the microwave is for warming up stuff that has already been cooked.

That chicken recipe would probably be OK if oven baked.  It would have to be cooked really well, that soaking in milk step is just asking for loads of bacteria to grow like crazy.

Yeah, I guess there are things that cook perfectly fine in a microwave- in addition to things that require boiling, some vegetables and potatoes turn out OK cooked in a microwave (although most all of even those things are better cooked other ways), but trying to cook raw meat or anything that needs precise temperature control turns out terrible.

80s Rock Themed Cheese:

Bought and tried the "Sweet Cheddar of Mine" tonight and it's a pretty good Irish Red Cheddar. Only other one they had in stock was the "Girls Just Wanna Have Fontina", but I didn't buy it.

That doesn't look too bad if you ignore that one protruding sausage that looks REALLY bad.

So Mayonnaise loaded with sugar maybe? But why does it look like Italian salad dressing?

With Beyond Meat in the news, I decided to give their Beyond Burgers a try.

Have tried those soy burgers that have been common for years and they always reminded me of the microwavable burger type things that they sell in work vending machines- sure they're food, but just barely (and soy causes me severe gastric distress).

Beyond Burgers come packaged like premade beef burger patties and look and feel kind of like real beef patties before they are cooked. The main ingriedient is pea protien and they don't contain soy. Instructions say to pre heat a skillet or grill (I used a skillet) and cook for 3 minutes on each side. If I had never had one before and someone gave me one without telling me what it was, I might have been fooled into thinking it was beef with an added filler like breadcrumbs or something (doesn't contain any breadcrumbs or wheat, but kind of had that texture). Outside was a bit too crunchy for beef and it tasted rather plain when tasted without condiments. With condiments it was good enough that I'll probably buy them again.

i'm super curious about the taste of vat-grown meat (or whatever beef producers are making them call it these days).
