What are they doing to our food?

Posted: April 22, 2013 in Health

This video will show you some of the common hazardous chemicals in our food, what is being done to our food, and the dangers it poses to all of us. I wanted to write a blog on this topic, but this video is so complete I thought,”Why bother?”  People either care about their health, or they do not. This video is a MUST see for all that do care. It will open your eyes wide! Watch it!

This was taken in downtown Houston at Market Square Park.

The Courting Man

Today is the time.

To make your heart mine.

For life with me will be grand.

I will take you by the hand.

Walking in springtime.

The flowers we smell.

Your’re a beautiful belle.

My heart longs to kiss your lips.

Sail close to me like a ship.

Together we dwell.

In the house for life.

Little to no strife

Children bouncing to and fro

Like monkeys in the congo.

Will you be my wife?

One of the cheaper cuts of beef, that is quite lean and tender, is a blade steak. I really like them for there small thin size, and rich flavor. For this 40 minute home meal, I rubbed the blade steaks with olive oil and seasoned with Montreal Steak Season by McCormick. The blade steaks are cooked three minutes on each side to render them medium. Personally, I think it is a sin to cook a steak well-done. You might as well eat shoe leather.

The mushrooms were sauteed in butter. Yes, pure butter like grandma and grandpa use to use, and a little lemon pepper. Margarine may be lower in fat, but it is man-made and has additives.

The eggplant is sliced, peeled, coated liberally in olive oil,  seasoned with sea salt,  cracked black pepper, and roasted at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.

The broccoli trees are trimmed from the stem, the stems are sliced, and placed in a steamer basket for about six minutes. You want your broccoli slightly crunchy. If it is soft, it is over-cooked.

As always, have your ingredients out and ready.

Oil your meat and season. It should be shiny.

Repeating cycle.
