There’s an Apple Watch for Everyone | Apple

Amendment: There’s an Apple Watch for Everyone with $400 or more to waste on a watch that tells time and pretends to be a PC accessory. (Oh I’m sorry it’s also a phone. I don’t really follow the Apple Watch Mystery too much.) The deal I chose changes the cream band to a black band and gets me GPS (which could actually be really great for taking long walks or just getting around the city on foot) and Cellular Service with any of T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T or Verizon. For an extra $80.00/year (or $4.00/month) I can sign up for watch insurance.

Could I spend anymore money on this watch? For instance, could I learn German without learning German by spending another $50.00 a month on it? You know, if it won’t learn languages and tighten up my high school math and language skills and keep a check on all my humanities interests from college, I don’t see the point of it. It just tells time, well lots of watches do that? What? Are they saying other watches are just jewelry and don’t even tell time? Because, everyone knows, the quartz age was pretty effective in that respect! Sure, you can’t get a quartz watch to make phone calls, but it can wake you up like it does by alarm.

I couldn’t resist and copied and pasted all the features on this watch.

I do like it though.

Well it has WIFI. That. Is pretty interesting to me. I wonder if you can download a location app that will locate you to free wifi zones if you turn it on when you are lost; simply send an “I am lost signal” to a waiting free wifi zone that looks for lost people with wifi watches of any kind. Not that I get lost often. I’m just saying in general terms.

 

Vegan Ossobuco With Risotto Milanese

Cinnamon & Bluebells

Happy Autumn! My favourite season..and the perfect time for comforting wholesome food.

I have always had mixed feelings about this dish before I went vegan. I used to absolutely love the creamy risotto and the fragrant sauce of the ossobuco, but the sight of the meat on the bone used to put me off. As a vegan, I can now make it exactly as I like, adding deliciousness and omitting animal products and cruelty.

A very satisfying and rich recipe, with all the complexity of the original, yet lighter and, in my humble opinion, so much more delicious! Perfect for a special occasion.

Vegan Ossobuco With Risotto Milanese

Ingredients:

For the Ossobuco:

400g vegan meat, baked or fried (tempeh, seitan, soy meat chunks etc)*

1 white onion, chopped

2 celery stalks, diced

2 carrots, diced

2 bay leaves

2 tbsp fresh lemon thyme (or a tsp dried thyme)

1 tsp…

Oven Baked Giant Beans

Cinnamon & Bluebells

A very traditional Greek dish called “Gigandes Plaki”, based on an old family recipe. Hearty, wholesome, wonderful hot or cold and utterly healthful. I use only a couple of sprays of olive oil, as opposed to a whole cup added by most Greeks! This large amount of oil is never healthy and honestly, not at all necessary for flavour or texture, as you will see, if you follow my recipe. Another subtle but substantial difference, is the use of fresh tomatoes, which, I think, are always a far superior choice.

Oven Baked Giant Beans

Ingredients:

500g giant white beans, soaked over night

2 lt of water (1 cup reserved after cooking)

1 large white onion, finely chopped

1 large celery stalk, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, minced

2 tbsp vegetable stock powder

100 ml dry white wine

2 tbsp tomato paste

2-3 large tomatoes, diced

1/3 cup fresh parsley…

Zest Of Lime

Crunchy veggies, mangoes, peanuts, almonds and quinoa tossed with a lip smacking delicious peanut dressing. This scrumptious salad with incredibly flavorful peanut dressing is going to knock your socks off. It’s truly everything you could want in a salad. Not only it is pretty to look at but is also fresh, crunchy and salty and has the most crave able peanut dressing that is equally nutty and tart and just so so good. It’s pretty quick to make and won’t make you slave away in the kitchen. It has chock full of veggies that up that satisfying crunch that we expect in a salad and at the same time it is quite light in calories. It has literally been my summer salad anthem.

SPINACH & GOAT CHEESE PIE

Zest Of Lime

ezy watermark_24-09-2019_13-10-23

How delectable this pie looks! Sometimes I just crave Mediterranean dishes and there is something about the fresh ingredients that go in their dishes which I find very inspiring. I love the herbs and the distinct flavors Mediterranean food encapsulates. This spinach and goat cheese pie I made follows the recipe of spanakopita with a few variations. Spanakopita is a delicious savory pie made of perfectly crispy layers of phyllo dough and a flavorful filling of spinach, herbs and feta nestled in. It’s a very famous dish around the globe. I have tried spanakopita in a couple of restaurants and have also tried making it myself twice. I have noticed a few things along the way, the major one being that I am not very fond of the strong and salty taste of feta and also that the pie should have enough amount of herbs to get that bright and…

Spicy Shrimp over Pappardelle

Whenever im using pappardelle pasta i know i’m in for a treat! To me pappardelle is the epitome of pasta elegance. Anytime pappardelle is in play i know im in store for a slow roasted ragu or hearty braised beef dish but sometimes when i’m thinking light but comforting i jump over immediately to scallops or shrimp in a hearty spicy tomato sauce. That mild burn from the red pepper flakes mixed with the sweetness of the shrimp is perfect for cool weather. And its alot quicker to fix than a braised anything, so that’s always a plus.Try it for your next Sunday dinner. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Ingredients

  • 12 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 4oz orange petite tomatoes

  • 28oz crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2tsp marjoram
  • 3 basil leaves,

Instant Pot Rice Pudding

Season Generously

Every couple of months, I go through a period of wanting to use up pantry and/or freezer ingredients. It’s both a good way to make sure you eat what you buy so you don’t waste money and also challenges me to think up new recipes with what I already have.

Today, I was having a sweet tooth, but I couldn’t leave the house since the girls were napping. So, I took out my trusty Instant Pot, grabbed the rice and some spices and whipped up one heck of a good rice pudding.

Rice pudding is super easy to make and doesn’t require much hands on time. It’s absolutely delicious with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg and best eaten right when it’s made. Happy eating!

Cheeseburger Stuffed Mushrooms

Do you find yourself struggling to get out of bed? Do you have inner conversations with yourself in the morning that talk you out of going to the gym or working out? Would you rather lay in bed for an hour scrolling through your phone than getting up and taking on the day?

I would mark ‘yes’ to all of those things if this was a legitimate questionnaire. I am my own worst enemy when it comes to starting the day on a positive note, working out, blogging, and eating healthy. That inner monologue that runs through my brain screams ‘KEEP SLEEPING!’ when my alarm goes off. It’s a constant battle to just get the day started.

However, I’ve found something that’s helpful: watching YouTube tutorials while working out. It gives me something to look forward to, makes my workouts go by much quicker, and is highly entertaining. I’ve also…

Quick Caesar Salad for a Crowd Recipe – BettyCrocker.com

You know? This whole vegan craze at fast food burger places begins because many people feel that the salads at these places are weak and unpleasant generally. As much as I appreciate the rest of the menu, I agree with the general opinion on the salads, though it’s not a universal opinion.

If they would just even be as realistic sometimes about vegetarian filler as they are about burgers, things like Extravagently Oddly Named Weird Tasting Plant Meal for Food Burgers wouldn’t occur anywhere and would find their proper place in food base sealed aluminum foil bins with the proper instructions on them for both meat and meatless construction of pulp patties.

Wouldn’t a basic Ceasar or a basic green be so much better than the cherry tomato special that sold everyone recently down the river who ever believed in the venue? Yes it would have been! And all day yogurt! No strange dessert yogurts. But it’s radically true that what some people complain about burger restaurants being trademark fetish-ed, is a thing that takes hold in the establishment of the place thereof. And so, you could only have a cherry tomato salad there.

I don’t care to be mature about this I guess. I told myself I would be. But I can’t. I feel like a child in juvie. And I don’t even know what that is like frankly, but based on stories of it, I do. It has been weeks that I have not trafficked restaurants I have known all my life and life is weird and I feel like I’ve been targeted. It don’t like this and I think it’s weird!
