tater-Tacosfinal
Yup, I guess I have been cooking up a bit of a storm. This was great.
You need any combination of the following:
Tater Tots
Lettuce
Tomato
Guacamole
Taco Sause
Sour Cream
Salsa
Chopped Black Olives
Grated Mexican Cheese (Not seasoned taco cheese)
Taco Meat (Ground beef, cooked with some chili powder and cumin, salt and pepper and a little garlic)
Black Beans (Add them to the taco meat about halfway through cooking)
Corn

Just take the tots, cooking as directed, put them on the plate and then sprinkle with finely shredded lettuce. Not too much, we are not making a taco salad. Then you need to sprinkle on the taco meat and black beans. Next a little sweet corn. You want a nice bit of salsa because the tots can be a bit bland if you don’t have enough. Follow it up with a good layer of cheese. Pop it under the broiler for bonus points. Actually you just lose points if you don’t do this. After the cheese is melted, it is time for a nice bit of guac and a blob of sour cream. Finally, pour on some taco sauce in a spiral. Start at the center and drizzle your way around to the edge.
The final step. Eat it and get ready to make another one.
This is great for using up left-over Taco Tuesday. I love Taco Tuesday. I also love food.


Not that you subscribed to my blog to get a constant update of my youtube feed. Maybe you did? I dont know, but anyway, this might be amusing/entertaining for the readers out there that dont care about the grind combinations or the newest hubs or how many lines per millimeter a lens can resolve.

Maybe next post will be about the amazing pulled pork and cornbread we had. Or this one can be. Needless to say, there isnt much left, so I cant show you a picture, but it was by far the best cornbread I have ever made. Anyway…

The cool part is that I learned you can photoshop videos in photoshop. Lens correction filters, de-noise, all that. Thats why this looks better.


I made some gluten free corn bread that came out amazingly good. tasted like good cornbread. We worked on bears bike as usual, and then went to ride. Got the first pic of nick on the rail second trie, and then bears bike broke again, so we went home, fixed it and headed out again. Made it to the school, got some educating in, snapped some pics and such.

So go ahead and click on that gallery, let me know what you think of them.

 


Sausage rolls, a South African favorite. It is a sausage, rolled up in buttery, flakey pastry and baked. One problem with this fast food favorite is that you cant buy the in America. So mom found a way to make her own. Its really simple, so follow my vague instructions and you are well on your way to a heart attack. You will need breakfast sausage, good old bob evens, flakey, puffy pastry stuff and some eggs.  Now, you will want to thaw out the pastry, and remember, one sausage will feed about two people, so if you have 8 people you will need about 4 sausages. Remember, 1/2 = 36/72. you might want to get low fat sausage because if you dot it will have a layer of fat around it that seems like a cheese sauce. GROSS! lay out your pastry, roll out the sausage so it is a little longer than the pastry, and roll that hot shot up like a pig in a blanket. Beat up some egg and brush it on the top. Pop those in the oven on about 350 for about 40 minutes until golden brown. Check to make sure there is no pink in the middle. Take it out and enjoy the heart attack! P.S. the finished picture is stolen off the internet! Looking at it is a crime, so just ignore it, but we ate them too fast to take pictures once they came out the oven. And, this is what got me through 7 hours of riding.


Yeah, I know all you moms out there here this one quit a a lot, (because I ask it). So, why not add some cooking inspirations, recipes, and what knot. I even added a new category, so you can just click up at the top and skip all the boring bmx stuff.

Starting off, here is a good one, Tangy Slow Roaster Pork with Yeah Yeah Yeah sauce. Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless pork loin roast
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce, or to taste

Instructions:

  1. Arrange onion slices evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker, and then place the roast on top of the onion. In a bowl, mix together water, sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, black pepper, salt, garlic powder, and hot sauce; pour over roast.
  2. Cover, and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours, or on High for 3 to 4 hours.
Seeing as this takes 7 hours, you might not be able to make it for dinner, so try this one, (I currently have no recipe in mind, but the googles cans solve that by that by the time I am back!) Well, I am now back. I got this one, as well as the other one, off of AllRecipes.
Mikes Real Man Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Sparkling Cheese and Good Bread.
Ingredients:
  • 2 slices bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 slices processed American cheese
Directions:
  1. Heat a small skillet to medium high heat. Spread a thin layer of butter on one side of both bread slices; place one slice bread, buttered-side-down, in hot skillet. Immediately place both cheese slices on bread and cover with second bread slice, butter-side-up. When first side is browned, turn over and brown other side. Remove from heat and let cool 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
Well, a little BMXBOT insight on Mike’s recipe, it makes one serving, and if Mike eats one serving, he might need to eat some more of these until he becomes a “real” man. So, try making it with a loaf of bread, a wheel of cheese and a tub of margarine, (if you like to eat plastic, I personally am content with chewing on my bike grips, but you can do what ever you want, or what ever it is that you put your mind to, you know? Anyway,) So try butter, like Mike suggests.
Thanks to you, Allrecipes, for letting me steal yo recipes and making them more fun to read. No flashing ads here. Yet. Yeah, now get out there and slow cook a pork, and then eat it too.
