You know, I don't Blog about anything, just our Life but...
It's about the OIL isn't it? No matter we're fracking everything that's frackable in the US, Canada and anywhere else that can sell the oil/gas shit to us so we can have MORE, MORE, MORE! War is a GIVEN when you have a foreign policy built on the possession of one commodity that THEY have LOTS of and we don't. We frack and keep our fingers crossed that they keep pumping and pumping into those tankers and keep delivering to us. So we kill, main, wound and make ourselves the pariah of the world...and it just fine. Wow, we are bereft of ideas, bereft of logic and bereft, most of all, of morals. Shame on us. No we are back into Iraq/Iran/Syria and every other place we have no business (Oh yes we do!!!!) there, fracking be damned, it's not enough, we want control of the source, the price and the delivery. Fuck the people, the innocent children the faithful believers of whatever religion they practice, they all die before our NEED. Awful! Awful! Awful! No new ideas, no hope for the future, just weaponry and the worship of death by oil.
Easy, Delicious, Exceptional
What? Food, not your boyfriend or girlfriend either. Something you can make them that will keep them around a bit longer.
World's simplest pizza substitute. Pizza is a flat bread, every culture on earth (or most) have a flat bread, a pita, crepe, pancake, tart, tortilla. Usually plain ol' flour but can be whatever the tradition expects. In California, Southwest US, I'd make this with the common Flour Tortilla, you're selection may vary. It's ok, get a couple, depending on size maybe two per person, maybe not if they are big.
So here's a sample ingredient list:
4 - 8" Flour Tortillas
1 Tbs Olive Oil
Common Button Mushrooms sliced very thin (1/16th inch thin!) and pretty like a mushroom should look.
1 Medium Lump Buffalo Mozzerella Cheese, Jack Cheese, or any other melting cheese you like.
A pinch of Salt.
Sprinkle of Pepper or Red Pepper Flakes
Lay out the tortilla(s)
Brush one side with Olive Oil.
Lay a careful layer of the mushroom slices leave a bit of room between them.
Slice the cheese into 1/2" lumps and randomly distribute them over the top.
Apply salt and pepper.
Place dressed tortillas on a cookie sheet 4" under broiler or oven top burner. Turn on highest heat. Watch carefully...when the cheese begins to melt and bubble you are done, done, done. Remove, cut with a pizza cutter or a pair of scissors, eat!
Oh my how simple and delicious this is, thanks to Jamie Oliver for the timely hint. He's a genius!
Obviously the variations are expected. Substitute eggplant, anchovies, the thinnest of tomato slices and different cheeses, it's good, very good, easy and quick. Have fun with this one.
