Nestle

Nestle's couldn't give two shits about the ecosystem and or people in the area. They are slowly working their way towards a monopoly on water (the next black gold imho).

The Council of Canadians, a non-profit social action organization, said the Grand River watershed, where Nestlé’s well and bottling plant are located, is a fragile ecosystem feeding into Lake Erie that must be protected.

“The Nestlé well near Elora sits on the traditional territory of the Six Nations of the Grand River, 11,000 of whom do not have access to clean running water,” said council chair Maude Barlow.

According to Health Canada, about 2,000 people in Six Nations are hooked up to the community water system, but “many residents use cisterns for drinking water and receive deliveries from provincially regulated, off-reserve water providers.”

Roasted Fennel/Orange Chicken

Chicken Thighs, Fennel, Onions, Garlic, Orange Zest/Juice, White Wine, Rice

All in one pan kind of meal, definitely a fav as there is less cleanup.

The fennel from the farmers market is huge and very fresh. Combined with sliced onion, garlic, orange zest/juice, some white wine, olive oil. Tossed together, poured over the chicken thighs, roasted in a 425F oven for around 45ish minutes. The pan sauce was especially lovely.

Rice, for some reason, didn't want to cook properly last night, only a few crunchy bits. No idea why the rice didn't seem to want to behave. Oh well, still delicious.

I'd so make this dish for company, a little fennel pollen, some fronds on top.

Spiced Lamb Belly Tacos

Slow Roasted Spiced Lamb Belly, Red Cabbage, Sheep Feta, Pickled Red Onion, Red/Green Pickled Chili's, Cilantro

I adore boneless lamb belly, absolutely perfect for tacos. Spice rub (with mystery spicy lamb rub discovered while packing), in a 300F oven, covered, low and slow for 2 1/2 hours. Wickedly delish!!!

All other additions as just gravy.

And then you do something silly like overheating the tortilla's, doesn't matter, eat them anyways.

And the son gets his digs in over actually having tacos on Tuesday, dammit!!!

Ham & Potato Bratwurst

Curried Colcannon

Leftovers, I adore you! The leftover mash from the other night, with the addition of garlic/onions/cabbage/madras curry powder. Fry it all up, nirvana comfort food, I love spicy.

The sausage maker is German, hence he calls all of his pork sausage bratwurst, which is correct. I had thought bratwurst was a certain spicing, from what I can gather, it necessarily isn't.

A dollop of chili-garlic paste, wonderful meal.

Listeria - Recall

Truthfully, I used to buy things like frozen waffles. The more I learned about the processed food industry, the more I learned to make it myself. Does it take some time, yes, effort, yes, learning, yes. Completely worth it, I even find it fun and rewarding (crazy hey!!).

I've seen sooooooo many recalls the past few years. I don't know whether things are getting worse or I'm just hearing about them more.

#foodforthought #eggo #listeria #learntocook #recall #food  
Kellogg recalls about 10,000 cases of Eggo waffles in 25 states due to possible contamination by listeria, a dangerous bacteria.

Ginger Tea

Honey

I feel like crap, my face hurts, dam colds....

This, this helps immeasurably, ginger tea. A large (or couple of) knobs of fresh ginger, peeled (I use a vegetable peeler), diced. Add a couple to few cups of water, bring to a simmer, simmer for 20ish minutes, pour through a sieve to remove the ginger. If you're hardcore, leave the ginger in. Add honey to taste.

A couple of cups of this per day have been helping with the face pain, dam sinuses. The sore throat is gone, gargling with salt water always helps this.

I think today will be a lost day, relaxing, resting, making a killer soup for dinner. Screw packing today (I've put much effort in this week already).

I might bake today, depending on how I feel.

Broken House

Is broken. It's official, Health Board says that we can't stay here for any length of time (we have about a week at most). On the positive side, damage deposits have been dropped off for the new rental apartments (time for son to move into his own place).

I seriously can't wait to show off the new places, one extreme to the other. Luckily friends should be willing to give us a place to crash for 2 weeks to the month required. Leave our things here, packed and ready to go. I'll work on it with the landlord, could be much worse for him if we chose to make it so. In a perfect world, we would get an October 15th move in date, the world is often not perfect.

I am spoiled as I am getting top floor (yes elevators, I'll see about using the stairs for exercising), south facing. I'll be able to welcome indoor rosemary and lavender back into my life.

It's a tad inconvenient, nothing that isn't doable. Sometimes you just have to roll with it.

I am sorry to hear that you have to move, but glad that you're finding the silver lining in the clouds.

Out For Lunch

Took my mom out to a local Korean Restaurant that has some fabulous soups on their menu. Someone in their kitchen knows how to make fantastic stock.

The tempura was absolutely delicious.

Mom was a trooper, eating well above her regular heat level.

Boycott Nestle

I know I will be, I'm sick of their shit, greedy, entitled, privileged  attitude....

I really wish bottled water was illegal, it's a dam waste of resources, buy a refillable water bottle already.

About 1.39 liters of water is needed to make one liter of bottled water, according to the industry trade group, the International Bottled Water Association.

While the state has introduced some harsh restrictions, including fines of up to $500 for overwatering lawns, Nestle has largely sidestepped them by purchasing its water from a spring in Millard Canyon, California, some 80 miles east of Los Angeles, located on the Morongo Indian Reservation. Because the reservation is considered a sovereign nation, it's not under any obligation to comply with state laws concerning the drought. Critics have also pointed to concerns over Nestle shipping the bottled water out of the parched state.

Source: http://www.cnbc.com/2015/03/24/nestle-chairman-time-to-turn-off-the-water-taps.html

I haven't had the opportunity to watch this documentary yet.

Do you know how to turn ordinary water into a billion-dollar business? In Switzerland there's a company which has developed the art to perfection - Nestlé. This company dominates the global business in bottled water.

Swiss journalist Res Gehringer has investigated this money-making phenomena. Nestlé refused to cooperate, on the pretext that it was "the wrong film at the wrong time". So Gehringer went on a journey of exploration, researching the story in the USA, Nigeria and Pakistan. His journey into the world of bottled water reveals the schemes and strategies of the most powerful food and beverage company on our planet.

Introduction

Food is my first passion.

If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with them...the people who give you their food give you their heart - Cesar Chavez

Food is a basic hedonistic pleasure, a sensual instinct we all share and revel in. - Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi, Jerusalem

He who controls the spice controls the universe.- Frank Herbert, Dune

It's not fair!! - Sarah, Labyrinth.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.  - Dr. Seuss 

Numerical Palindromes - it's a thing!!!
