Hi,

Yes, I made the crispy asparagus. I preheated oven to 425…..chopped off the ends….tossed with olive oil, S &P and placed on parchment paper for maybe half hour or more spaced apart. Keep checking on them…I cook them a little longer than usual until they look like they are about to char. Drain on paper towel a bit….you can sprinkle with Parmesan if you like but they are so good without it. Planned on leftovers…didn’t happen lol. Reheat any in toaster oven or regular oven briefly…not the microwave. I also do this to canned chickpeas.
Drain, rinse and let the chickpeas dry on a towel….do the same thing as I did with the asparagus…just short of charring. Better than peanuts and you can store them for a couple of days….crispy right out of the oven and soften up a bit afterward but still good. Same thing with Kale….makes kale chips. Just be sure not to burn….425 or 450….love to cook with high heat.

I’ll toss anything in the oven with olive oil s & p….. best way to have tasty veggies. I only use good cold pressed olive oil or avacado oil..great for high heat and I am partial to using parchment paper.

True funny story
My dad was driving on the NY state throughway and my mom was asleep in the back seat under a blanket. He stopped at a rest stop with security to use the bathroom. Mom, in the interim, woke up and went to use the bathroom, came out and the car was gone. Apparently he never looked in the back seat.
Several miles away he sees a police car and hears sirens. He’s pulled over, officer gets out and says “Did you forget anything Arthur?” At first he wonders why the trooper knew his name, looked in the back seat and mom gets out of the police car. One of many true life stories in my slightly hilarious growing up adventures in my somewhat batty family.

Still laughing fondly

Are you nuts? Trying to go to the great beyond on a sugar coma?🤭
Snickers is #1 and Reese’s pieces is #2…I hate almond joy although I like coconut.

Candy and lentil stew…shame on you Leonard, you know better.🤢

Save the sun dried tomatoes for another time…not suitable for this recipe….to me they don’t go together.

Hi,
I use lentils frequently…first rinse them. For me I usually do the 3 to 1 amount. Cook 1 cup of lentils in 3 cups of boiling water maybe 15 to 20 minutes. Color of lentil doesn’t matter. I wouldn’t use the whole amount you have…you’ll get tired of them.
You have the perfect combo with ground meat and canned tomatoes. Brown your beef, add any seasoning you like..add onions or garlic along with the browning if you like..add the tomatoes…when that tastes good to you you can add the cooked lentils.
A nice healthy mush…kind of like a stew. You can brown any vegetable to go along with the “stew”

If you want to cook the entire amount…just save some for other dishes. You can store cooked lentils for about a week or freeze them (I have never frozen any). You can add them to soup that you have cooked from scratch…..hmmmm. Or tossed in a salad.

Very versatile

Octopus is not a fish… it is considered a mollusk or cephalopod and has lower levels of mercury than all the tuna you eat. Their Octopus is from Spain which is the best in the world….wild and not over harvested like fish is in other countries .

Regarding the disgusting list I have eaten both frog legs and escargot numerous times. I was surprised to see spam on the list. It was a staple during the depression and World War II and shipped to the troops because it did not have to be refrigerated. It only has 6 ingredients…pork shoulder, water ,potato starch , nitrate, sugar and salt. Those are less ingredients than the majority of items in the supermarket today. It is very versatile and was a life saver during the depression. I don’t know anyone who eats it today or buys it but I bet many people on this forum have eaten it and it is still sold.

The other items are cultural…they would probably say the same things about our foods.

You have to be more adventurous in your eating but taste buds are a funny thing. Meanwhile I severely limit my tuna intake as much as I love it and try to find the brands with the least mercury. The comments on that website are just ignorant….let them eat McDonalds and clog up their arteries.
