SAMR | Pearltrees | SAMR Model | Pinterest | Latest ... Spinach Egg Breakfast Sandwich. Raise your hand if you indulged in the good life this weekend. (I have two hands raised high…after I type this parenthesis). My weekend was filled with toast, waffles, bacon, tortilla chips, oysters & bourbon. I think I ate a salad. I dunno. I’m not sure. I am back on an egg for breakfast kick. My breakfast kicks last for about a month or 2 and then I introduce a new kick.

Spinach in a pan with olive oil + red pepper flakes. Spinach is cooked. TOAST is grilled on my panini press. Pesto goes on. Spinach on one side. I’m obsessed with this salt right now. Here I sprinkled some on top of the smashed avocado. Eggs in a skillet. Fold sides into the center. Fold over. Top on sandwich. Assemble and slice in half. Look at all that green! Things To Do.

Raspberry Vanilla Smash Lemonade – A Cozy Kitchen. Why Is There A Media Blackout Around The Las Vegas Massacre? One month on from the Las Vegas shooting – the worst mass-shooting in U.S. history – the TV, press and even social media has censored all discussion of the attack. The survivors of the shooting as well as the American public are still without any answers, as all information and discussion over the shooting has all but vanished. reports: The official timeline of the Vegas shooting has changed three times. A week before the attack, Paddock wired $100,000 to an account in the Philippines. Paddock also took cruises to ports in the Middle East. Paddock’s laptop was also missing its hard drive when recovered in his hotel room. Despite a month of being told otherwise, it’s now been revealed that police did discharge fire in Paddock’s hotel room upon entry… but why, if Paddock had already killed himself before police breached the room? Jesus Campos is the security guard who first reportedly found Paddock as he started his killing spree, and was shot in the leg in the process.

Unleashing Creativity: Greg Kulowiec App Smashing - from Beth Holland. Greg Kulowiec begins his session by asking, “Why limit our students to one tool at one time?” With App Smashing, students can create content with a variety of apps and then publish it to the web – don’t let content “die on your iPad.” The general concept between App Smashing is merging content from a variety of apps. Greg likes the word App Smash, but Lisa Johnson (@techchef4u) calls it App Synergy.

Toolkit for App Smashing – keep it simple! The key to App Smashing is the camera roll – use apps that can save to camera roll or take screen captures and bring them in. While the concept is to create content, get it into a central location, and make something with it, now, what can you do???? App Smash Creations Create a multimedia book about whatever concept, topic or idea is happening in class. Create a published web-book that can be exported to the web as a PDF. “Making books if fun, but advanced video can be more fun,” says Greg. The ThingLink Smash is one of Greg’s favorites.

Anyone who’s ever purchased an avocado will testify that, after taking several days to reach the point of perfect ripeness, they remain at that point for an incredibly short amount of time before morphing into a brown, sludgy mess.

As if to confound this problem, if you do catch them at the optimum ripeness, they turn brown incredibly quickly after being cut open if not eaten straight away. As always, there are chemical processes at work that are to blame for this occurrence. The flesh of avocados is made up of mainly fatty acids, such as oleic acid and linoleic acid. They contain very little sugar or starch. The rapid browning of avocado flesh is a consequence of its exposure to oxygen in the air, as well as the presence of phenolic compounds in the avocado itself. This browning isn’t unique to avocados – the browning of many other fruits, such as apples, is also a consequence of this reaction. Browning of avocados can be prevented in several ways.

La classe de madame Marjorie | Pearltrees | Partage de ... Creamy Carrot Soup. It’s a shame the Soup Nazi went out of business because he would have had a real hit with this Creamy Carrot Soup. I have no doubt, he would have charged $5 for a slice of my garlic bread and only exceptional customers who made absolutely no sounds got two slices. If Kramer was around, he’d probably add a dollop of parsley oil on top of his soup; they were tight like that. I love the creamy/sweet/savory combination of this carrot soup. It’s both hearty & llight and the addition of parsley oil helps round out the flavor.

Tahu Tempeh Bacem - Daily Cooking Quest. For my more keen readers, you are probably getting to the conclusion that a lot of Indonesian dishes are cooked in two steps, the first involves boiling/braising/poaching to let the spices fully absorbed in the meat/tofu/tempeh/etc, then followed by the second step of deep frying the said meat/tofu/tempeh/etc, and you will be absolutely right. It may seem excessive, but this method of cooking has its advantage. The first step is pretty simple, you usually just let it sit cooking in the pot until its done.

Then, in a lot of households, food that has gone through this first step of cooking is stored in fridge and later deep fry in small batches as needed throughout the week or the following days. Extremely useful for preparing a party, don’t you think? Tahu tempeh bacem is another dish that follows the same pattern.

Making active and creative use of all the languages in your classroom. I was recently at the third annual BELTA Day conference in Brussels, organised by the excellent Belgian English Language Teachers’ Association. Whilst there, I saw a really fascinating presentation by a local teacher called Joris Van Den Bosch. Joris has spent the last four years working as a secondary school EAL teacher at the British School of Brussels. He teaches English as an additional language to a wide range of international 11-to-14-year-olds and supports them in accessing the mainstream English curriculum.

He started his teaching career in 2005 after completing a TEFL course in Thailand, and taught ESL in language academies in Thailand, Vietnam and Spain before returning to Belgium, his home country. He has great passion for internationalism and the creative use of different home languages in the classroom. The use of home languages in the ESL / EAL classroom is still the subject of vigorous debate. Academic Word of the Week Reverse Translation What is she/he talking about? The Best Coconut Soup, Ever. I have friends in high places, meaning I got buddies who can cook. One of those friends is Kiki, and ironically, we met in design school. We loved what we did at the time, never imagining that both of us would end up in a completely different place – the food world. Just one year after graduation, Kiki enrolled in culinary school and trained classically to become a chef.

I went another route, choosing to focus more on organic, permaculture, and biodynamic farming, and became obsessed with food through growing it. It was a while before I could admit to myself that cooking was my true passion and a path I should follow. Years later, we are living in Copenhagen. Kiki is from Bangkok, Thailand, and her food always tastes so special and exotic to me as she often cooks the authentic dishes of her culture. A few months back Kiki came over to make some dinner together and brought the ingredients for a Thai coconut soup, called Tom Kah. The Best Coconut Soup, Ever Directions: 1. 2. 3. Why It’s Ethical to Eat Meat. Bradley Cramer taught Burmese refugees how to process the chickens he raised in Medina, Ohio, last Saturday at Schmidt Family Farms. /Photo by Donna Turner Ruhlman Several weeks ago, New York Times columnist Ariel Kaminer created a contest asking people to argue that eating meat is an ethical decision.

Kaminer was pleased by the response. Judges included carnivores, vegetarians, and perhaps the most thoughtful and compelling vegan living, Peter Singer (and it’s worth clicking the Kaminer link for the judges’ overall responses to the many essays they read). They chose as winner an article by teacher Jay Bost. It’s no secret that I am a vigorous and unapologetic carnivore. This I believe: to eat humanely raised and slaughtered animals is not only ethical, it’s important to our humanity. To put it as simply as possible, then, to give up eating what made us who we are possibly endangers us genetically and socially.

Michael, he said to me, I spend a lot of time with these animals. Blueberry Yogurt Cookies | Healthy Cookie Recipe. Hi Guys! Did everyone have a good weekend?

Gut Healing Vegetable Stock | Om Nom Ally | @OmNomAlly. I’m totally committed to my monthly ritual of making home-made stock on the stovetop or slowcooker. Sometimes it’s a flavourful chicken stock or a beef bone broth that I’m cackling over in my kitchen cauldron; other times it’s this flavourful vegetable stock that I’m simmering away.

It’s become a ‘must have’ and if I run out I get very upset having to fork out the cash for a product that never tastes the same, or as good. Making your own bone broths and stocks are two of the best ways to get gut healing gelatin and amino acids (especially glycine and proline) and should be a staple of every omnivore’s cooking arsenal. Not everyone out there enjoys animal-foods in their diet though, which is why you need this recipe for gut healing vegetable stock in your life. It’s rich on flavour and also possesses incredible nutritional benefits. Another fantastic bonus of using mushrooms in your stock?

Gut Healing Vegetable Stock Author: Alison Murray @ Om Nom Ally Recipe type: Stock. Homemade Chicken Nuggets. These homemade chicken nuggets had the right texture, flavor and consistency of a standard McDonald’€s Chicken McNugget. However, it still tasted leaner (healthier) probably because I trimmed all the fat off the chicken pieces. Scroll to the end of this post for the printable recipe. I used a mixture of chicken breast meat and thigh meat, hoping the thigh meat would add some extra richness, flavor and moistness after frying. I remember back in the old days, McDonald’s used to only use dark meat, that’€s when I liked them the most. You can use all dark meat if you wish, if you do, let me know how they turn out.

It was easier than I thought it would be. Homemade Chicken Nuggets (approx. 30 nuggets) adapted from For The Love Of Food Ingredients: 2 lbs.
