Pizza

The dish I made for this week’s assignment was pizza. The crust was just the right amount of crunchy, and the cheese melted pleasantly i n your mouth. This tradition of home-made pizza only started a couple of years ago. It reminds me of the fact that my family’s origins are fully Italian. The best part of this tradition would be the great tasting pizza. One challenge was kneading the dough properly, but that was an easy fix after I was taught the correct technique. My greatest success and thing that I was most proud of would be how delicious it turned out.

Accidentally ate some before remembering to take a photo, oops!

Roast Beef

One of the dishes that I cooked this week was roast beef. This dish had a lovable texture that just melted in your mouth. There was also the familiar and enticing smell of cooked meat. I did not use a recipe; instead, I was given verbal instructions. Honestly, I don’t think I would change anything for this dish. I really enjoyed it. There wasn’t any particular challenges either. My greatest success, and thing I’m most proud of, would have to be that aforementioned texture, as that is exactly how I like my meat.

Garlic Potatoes

One of the dishes I made this week were garlic potatoes. They had a faint scent of garlic, which was what I used for flavoring. The texture was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I did not need a recipe for this dish as it was quite easy to make. If I were to make these potatoes again, I would add more garlic. I love garlic, and as such, it was my opinion that there was not enough to impact the taste all that much. Due to this recipe being pretty straight forward, there were no challenges that I can think of. My greatest success, and also the thing that I am most proud of, would have to be making something that I liked using potatoes, which is a type of food that I’m not the most found of.

Most Memorable Food Experience

“An Image of a Bunch of Churros.” Spend With Pennies, 20 Dec. 2018, https://www.spendwithpennies.com/churros/.

My most memorable experience with food was after my friend and I attempted to make these wonderful treats. What resulted from this decision was a disaster. Perhaps our first mistake was using a recipe from Tik Tok. The intelligence of this move is debatable, but you got to try everything once. The issue we ran into while baking was inadequate preparation. Halfway into the recipe, we discovered that we didn’t have the right pot to fry the churros. If that wasn’t bad enough, we also ran out of suitable oil. What we ended up using was a mixture of various oils; ranging from vegetable oil to olive oil, and still we were lacking. In the end, the churros did not fry properly so we were left with half-baked and doughy bread-sticks. This tragic story has left it’s mark on me. How I didn’t get food poisoning, I still don’t know.

Favorite Website

Reddit is my favorite website because it is an excellent time waster, you can create an account and customize it to your liking by following certain subreddits. There is something for anyone, whether that be football or anime. Neither of which I’m interested in, but somebody sure is, and there’s definitely things for me too. Link:

Important Events On My Birthday

There are numerous things that occurred on the same date of my birthday years and years ago, some of these include Michael Servetus being burned for heresy in Switzerland in 1553, Emperor Napoleon entering Berlin in 1809, and Benjamin O. Davis Jr. becoming the first African-American general in the US Air Force in 1954. Side note, Scotiabank is really interested in my account if the ads on the site say anything.

Favorite Photo

Honestly, my reasons for liking this photo is simply because of how chaotically beautiful it looks. It’s what happens when lightening and a volcano mix. I appreciate the aesthetic, and sometimes that’s all the reason you need to give. It’s an interesting image, I believe.

Favorite Video

The reason why I love this video is because it has a good number of jokes packed into under three minutes. I find most of them to be hilarious, and it has a nice bonus of being able to be re-watched without losing its humor. In addition, the video is also short and quick.
