    VIDEO Somehow this Magic Mojo makes the BEST barbecue chicken I have ever eaten. In fact it really makes the ONLY barbecue chicken that I have ever really liked since until I ate this Pollo Rojo, I have never been really satisfied with any barbecue chicken previously. This marinade affects not only the taste but, just as importantly, the texture of the chicken. If anybody out there knows what is in this Magic Mojo they marinate the chicken in, please let me know in the comments.

    It's been a while since I had babies to deal with. However, I was in the super-market today checking out when I saw a locked case of baby formula in the front of the store. Baby formula. Locked up. Why? I was thinking maybe somebody out there knows why that is so.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn) defended Venezuelan President Maduro’s order for troops to fire on humanitarian aid workers trying to delivery food to the nation’s starving inhabitants. “This food aid has not been approved by the legitimate government authorities,” Omar pointed out. “It is a totally ad hoc effort that is undermining the Maduro regime’s attempts to rally his people against the Yankee imperialism that is the root cause of the crisis in Venezuela.” “Venezuela used to be able to count on oil revenue to finance the country’s transition to socialism,” Omar maintained. “But under Trump’s radical deregulation policy the United...

    VIDEO This is a great deal I found this week at Aldi. Only $1.99 per pound for this corned beef. In fact, I was surprised it happened so early since St. Patrick's Day is still 2 weeks away. I'm sure there will be other deals but why wait? Grab this one while there are still supplies available. In addition to enjoying this corned beef for dinner, I also heated up several slices of leftover corned beef along with eggs and had them for breakfast this morning.

    VIDEO You won't miss the breading when you cook fried chicken in lard and baste it afterwards in garlic butter. These chicken thighs were fried in my new cast iron skillet so only a low heat setting on the dial was enough to fry them. I plan to fry a lot of chicken this way in the future because not only is it healthy low carb but also because chicken is an inexpensive source of meat. p.s. In case you're wondering, yes that is a burn on the back of my hand from the grease. However, since this recording was...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (S-Vt) boldly countered assertions that socialism would lead to food shortages, rationing, and long lines for those trying to get food by contending that "contrary to capitalist propaganda, making people stand in line to buy food is a good thing. Let's examine the facts." "Can anyone rationally dispute the reality that in the United States a distressingly large proportion of the population is morbidly obese?" Sanders asked. "The ease with which food can be obtained is the main reason for this health crisis. If food were scarcer and more expensive people wouldn't be able to get fat....

    King crab, Wagyu beef medallions, and foie gras were on the menu for President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un when they dined together on Wednesday night. The five-course menu was inspired by traditional Vietnamese cuisine, and was served at Hanoi's Metropole Hotel at 7:00 p.m. local time (7:00 a.m. ET.) Before the leaders sat down to eat, Trump Kim met one-on-one for 20 minutes. Scroll down to see the full menu.

    VIDEO The secret is to buy the Einstein Bros gift cards for a STEEP discount which you can find at GiftCardGranny.Com. I found a $25 gift card for just $12.50 or 50% off. Then join the Schmear Society to take advantage of their Monday Baker's Dozen sale when you can get 13 bagels for just $7. Using the gift card, it only cost me $3.50 out of pocket. Call ahead to your local Einstein Bros store because a few do not accept gift cards. Most of those that don't are located on college campuses, in hospitals, etc..

    VIDEO WOW! Since this video was made I cooked up a few more meals on the cast iron skillet and I am really impressed. Not only is it working great as a non-stick (and easy to clean) but I can cook at a much lower heat since this type of skillet is much better at retaining heat than teflon. Anybody out there still relying on teflon should definitely check out cast iron and be sure to season it as I demonstrated in the video. Rather than toss the skillet out when it starts losing it's non-stickiness as you would do...

    Politico ^ | 2/17/19 | NOLAN D. MCCASKILL
    When an interview surfaced this week that brought Sen. Cory Booker’s vegan lifestyle to the forefront, it seemed like the New Jersey senator would be forced to do the first damage control of his nascent presidential campaign. Iowa ranks as the No. 1 pork-producing state in the nation, after all, and the state Farm Bureau reports that 95 percent of Iowans eat meat at least weekly. **SNIP** Booker is already looking ahead: He told “The View” this month that while he won’t be eating pork chops on a stick at the Iowa State Fair, “There will be lots of deep-fried...

    VIDEO People ask me a lot about where I get all my coupons. Well, when I only need a couple of coupons, I usually just print them out. However, since the print limit is normally just two, when I need more I order them online such as from the Coupon Flea Market as I did in this case when I ordered 20 Celentano coupons for $1.50 per product. I applied these Celentano coupons to their frozen meatballs and in this video I demonstrate how I ended up getting 20 12-oz bags of them for just $1 each. Finally, you can...

    Efforts by the United States to send food to starving Venezuelans were blocked by order of President Nicolas Maduro. “Our policies have enabled our citizens to lose an average of more than 40 lbs. each over the past two years,” he boasted. “We have achieved objectives that the morbidly obese Americans envy and resent.” “The key is to remove the opportunity to eat,” Maduro explained. “The ’empty stores’ initiative we implemented largely accomplished this goal. It has also had the salutary added benefit of getting our people to eat garbage and keep almost all of the country’s edible waste from...

    VIDEO It is the question that has confronted humanity since ancient times... Does brining a turkey really make a difference? For years your humble correspondent has declined to brine his turkeys due to some people saying it is okay not to do it. I used that as lazy excuse. However, I finally decided to find out for myself if brining a turkey makes a noticeable difference. In this video, I smoke my turkey the same away I have always done so previously. The only difference is that I let the turkey soak in brine for 20 hours. After the turkey...

    Conservative Rightwing News ^ | January 17, 2019 | Jeffrey A. Friedberg
    [PHOTO} Here, quoted below, we are presented with liberal “experts.” A liberal bunch of so-called, foodie “professors” and “scientists,” who are dependent upon liberal-minded grants and donations, telling their version of a liberal Save The Planet myth—to a liberal French newspaper, being quoted by a liberal web portal. We are told they will care for us. We are told what food they will permit to us to eat. We are told how much food will be allowed to us. This will all somehow be worked out, “scientifically.” What’s not to believe? What could possibly go wrong with that? I say...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer rejected an invitation from President Trump to participate in a lunch meeting that would discuss a possible compromise to partially fund a border barrier and reopen the federal government. "We saw the fast food spread he bought for the college football champions," Schumer pointed out. "If he treats star athletes like that I shudder to think what he'd have on the menu for us. He likes football. He hates us. There's no way I'd go without seeing a menu first." Pelosi was even harsher in her assessment of the...

A great low carb meal for weight loss.
  • “Indoor farming is about producing an economic product by using technology”

    "The mistake many in our industry make is to attribute the success of indoor farming solely to LED. LED makes indoor farming viable. But if you want to make indoor farming scalable, you have to think in trends that are happening in robotics, automation, computer vision and machine learning." So says Irving Fain, CEO with Bowery Farming. Yesterday the company announced a $90 million funding round, led by GV (formerly Google Ventures). Additional investors in this round include Temasek (the global investment company headquartered in Singapore), Dara Khosrowshahi (CEO of Uber), David Barber’s fund Almanac, First Round Capital, GGV Capital...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | December 24, 2018 | Benjamin Haas in Seoul
    Lee Oui-ryuk was on the verge of dying of starvation when he stole a block of tofu in a market in North Korea at the height of a nationwide famine. Too weak to run away after he swiped the food, Lee continued eating as the seller cried and beat him with a metal rod, staining the white tofu red with his blood. At nine years old he knew the theft would end in violence, but in his head he repeated over and over: “Even if you are beaten, keep eating.” He eventually passed out and when he awoke, took a...
