I hear ya, I am not too fond of fish either. Though I do enjoy fried clams on rare occasion.
I saw a film of a master fisherman landing a marlin with line made for bluegills and lake trout. I guess that's where they go for challenges once they've cleared all the others.
Spoiler: My favorite lure
lol that's awesome. Hubby and myself have kind of switched roles. He hates to fish. I like it. I hate to eat it, he likes it. So I fish for him and he cleans cooks at eats it.
I do that all the time. And they still want me to pay them my own catch. But I defend my prey with a rod!
I must say that it's hard to row my little boat inside supermarkets.
Beef cheeks with mashed spuds and cheap mixed veg. Never cooked beef cheeks before; they take some cooking but well worth the wait.
Real winter comfort food as the temperatures here nudge up towards thirty Celsius... (#FreezerClearOut)
fried potatoes with onion. Honey and butter roasted salmon, salad and garlic bread.
Tonight I'm gonna pick up Chinese from a great place near home. I get orange peel chicken but substitute the General Tsao sauce in place of the regular. It's divine.
Something with bacon, cause bacon is love, bacon is life.
I thought that was Shrek.
Rib-shaped mystery meat patty, mashed 'potatoes' and corn, packaged as a TV dinner.
Rice, beans and Yucca. Hardest part was cutting the damn Yucca with the dull knives I've got here. Should come out tasty with a little olive oil on the Yucca.
This confused me at first because, in the UK, Yucca is generally a houseplant... however Dr Google tells me that you pond-cousins call cassava "yucca" (which probably comes from "yuk" when you read on https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/cassava that cassava contains "cyanogenic glycosides, which can release cyanide in the body when consumed"... so, good luck with that...)
Also pretty much any time you drink apple juice. It's the reason apple seeds taste like almonds.
Also the seeds in the middle of peach/apricot stones which are delicious, said to be a cure for cancer, and also contain cyanide...
Grilled haddock with poached eggs, beetroot, and a frankfurter. No, I don't know why either but very tasty...
Ha, no luck needed here! Been eating Yucca all my life. Need to boil it until its nice and soft and not deadly... I think it'd take Forrest Gump to the second power to eat this shit raw.
I would probably still have a potato... I don't understand the "it's ok if it's done right" thing. In Japan puffer fish is considered a delicacy, despite what national geographic says :-
"Almost all pufferfish contain tetrodotoxin, a substance that makes them foul tasting and often lethal to fish. To humans, tetrodotoxin is deadly, up to 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide. There is enough toxin in one pufferfish to kill 30 adult humans, and there is no known antidote...Called fugu in Japan, it is extremely expensive and only prepared by trained, licensed chefs who know that one bad cut means almost certain death for a customer. In fact, many such deaths occur annually" (my bold)
OR... you could eat salmon? Just saying...
Life has a 100% mortality rate, so why not make things interesting.
Jerky this morning, BBQ ribs for tonight.
Thought apple seeds were Arsenic.
Also possible. Arsenic is a metallic element that can be found in mineral form in soil and groundwater. Plants grown in contaminated soil can pick up and retain small amounts. Arsenic doesn't have an inherent taste or odour, though, so you're not likely to know you're eating it.
Pumpkin cake with walnuts in it. Not exactly a wholesome dinner an all, but it's homemade and smells damn good.
Plus, I'm too lazy to cook tonight.
ETA: I didn't bake the cake.
Keeping it simple, hamburger with cheese no bread, macaroni salad (store-bought), pickles, tomato, and lettuce. Very simple but good meal.
Salmon, store bought fresh and pan fried, with steamed chard and baby potatoes fresh from the garden, topped with sour cream and chives.
