  • Re: Why are veggies so hard to enjoy?

    thanks, and sure, there are sweet potatoes, asparagus, yellow and red bell peppers, squash, portobello mushrooms, zuchinni (& in the middle some abt's, gotta have some bacon right).  There is no pan on the grill, they are just done direct on the grill.

    As a side note, I do them in shifts, one veggie at a time so they cook evenly, then remove them to a cooling rack while the next one is on; I've found that if you put them directly on a plate they tend to leach out a lot of water then you end up with a less than appetizing plate swimming in a puddle, kills the flavor too somewhat.  When cooled I transfer them to the serving plate & serve at room temp - a plate like the one shown in the picture makes a nice addition at a party, particularly when next to a plate of meat

     

  • Re: Why are veggies so hard to enjoy?

    To answer your question, maybe because you're not cooking them properly?  Take any combination of veggies, slice, brush with olive oil, salt & pepper & cook direct over high heat.  On a plate they look pretty good & taste even better:

  • Re: a new pancake topping (bacon wrapped bananas)

    Wonder if freezing the bananas before wrapping them in bacon would have kept them from getting too soft? Not sure though how you would get wooden toothpicks through them.
    Dewalt.  But seriously, it's not a problem unless you have an aversion to cooked bananas & if so there's no way around it, you'd probably not enjoy this.  They're so close to mush uncooked that I don't think there's a way to avoid them getting even mushier during cooking.  That said even after cooking & slicing they held their shape no problem.  Overall they probably have a texture that wouldn't be appealing to many people.  I love cooked bananas, routinely slice one up into oatmeal & then into the microwave for 4 minutes, after that treatment they're barely discernable as bananas anymore, they become more or less an unidentifiable flavoring...  or flavouring if you're an angry dwarf
