    Sounds good!

    And, I also love spinach.  However....there is a home for good lettuce.

    I've actually never tried Feta with eggs so I probably should.
    I don't think my mind is open enough to change it on this debate, me and cheddar are just too tight.

    Sometimes I'll go feta and then top it with a light sprinkling of cheddar...

    That sounds badass.  And that can be breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

    Haha yeah, the keg is empty.
    It's from my first keg party when I was a sophomore in high school, I kept it as a memento because I thought it would make a nice little table well worth the 10$ deposit.

    That's awesome, man.  All looks amazing.  Are you freezing some of it or will it all keep? 

    Talk to me about the hot mustard.  How'd you do that?
  • rgambsrgambs Posts: 10,919
    The bbq sauce, which is a recipe that my brother's old lady pulled together from a few others, will freeze.  He named it Reaper's Blood, which I think is corny, but oh well, it was his to name.
    The pH is just on the edge for water bath canning and we all have room in the freezers so I didn't bother getting the pressure canner out.
    The rest will keep.

    The mustard was a lark and it came out great!
    I found a recipe online that was simple and followed it very loosely with some tweaks.  All the typical ingredients you'd expect.
    About 15 whole scotch bonnets, an onion, and a few cloves of garlic in the magic bullet.
    Cup of vinegar, white and apple cider mixed
    2 tablespoons or so of brown sugar, some lime juice, couple hunks of pineapple.
    1/4 cup yellow mustard and 1/2 cup mustard powder
    Dash of curry and a double dash of cumin
    Salt

    It came out sweet almost to a relish level, which I like, but next time I'll make a sweet and a not sweet batch.
    It's hot as you'd expect from a sauce with a handful of whole habaneros per jar, I wonder how hot it's gonna be in a month.  Yee haw.

    The Reaper's Blood has 9 peppers, without seeds, in 13 pints of sauce, and is seriously hot.
    It's as hot as the mustard with whole habaneros.

    Love all this. Awesome stuff.  I am going to have to take a swing at the mustard.  Have done plenty of hot and BBQ sauces, but never tried mustard.
  • rgambsrgambs Posts: 10,919
    It's just like any other hot sauce, you can't hardly screw it up!  
    I love that you can add peppers or sugar to adjust it later if it's not properly balanced.

    I finally tried quinoa. I cooked red quinoa and put white beans and tofu on top. I was hungry within a half hour, but I felt wired like I had a shot of espresso. The flavor came from spices and onions.

    I look forward to figuring out the different flavors of the different colors of quinoa.

    I can't stand quinoa. Love me some cous cous though.

    I haven't been back since they killed have the country via poop.  I want to, just can't bring myself to do it with all the good options out there.

    Haha yeah, those were a nice few months with barely any lines at chipotle!  It's a nice and quick option for lunch during the week.
