I have played some farming simulations in the past, and many of them have been slow moving, or have time requirements that are just far too unrealistic. Farm to Fork is none of those things, and is one of the most refreshing farming sims I have come across in a very long time. You start off as four fresh young dudes with a failing farm that just needs a new opportunity to get your goods into a new market. One is considering the situation as he checks out the bags of wheat and the loaf of bread he has been nomming on while is buddies are having a spell of financial depression. The light bulb goes on, and soon the farmhouse is a production area where the freshest ingredients right from the farm become bread, salads, and so much more to bring variety to this little farm.

Angel’s Buffet and Catering – Chipley, FL

This entry was posted in Foods, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

lsI had been in this establishment before, when it was the New Star Chinese Buffet. The new management took this place into a completely opposite direction, and Angel’s Buffet is now a purely Southern and Soul Food restaurant. Advertised as having the “Best Chicken Around”, the chicken did not disappoint! The skin was light, crispy, and not at all greasy. Sadly, on the day I came there, the other offerings were not quite as good.

There was a baked chicken with barbeque sauce that was a bit overcooked and hard to manage. There were only about five or six vegetable choices for a weekday lunch. Butter beans, yellow rice, collards, corn and snap beans. There were egg rolls that were very good plain, even though I do prefer them with duck sauce and Chinese mustard. There were baked sweet potatoes, rolls, and fried cornbread, which was pretty light and crispy, like the fried chicken. These guys and gals got making deep fried food down to an art. There was also an assortment of thin slices over various cakes for sweet options, but I did not partake of those. The sweet tea was light tasting, and not too sweet. On some things, they hit the mark, and on others, some improvement was needed. Another thing that was a let down was the fact that there was a wonderful chicken gravy, but no mashed or new potatoes to put them on. I tried it on the yellow rice, but it was just not quite the same.

TDF Honey Ketchup

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150This ketchup is the very best that I can ever remember tasting. It is clean, light and yet bold as well. It has a smooth flavor that will make you never want to have another type of ketchup ever. This is what the condiment tomato sauce should taste like and is better than any store bought I can remember. Once you try this flavorful to die for ketchup you won’t want another kind ever.

Ingredients for TDF Honey Ketchup

6 oz. tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup rice vinegar*
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. finely minced sweet onion
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. powdered clove
1/8 tsp. powdered ginger
1/2 tsp. basil (can be minced up with the onion)

*I use rice vinegar because white vinegar is made from corn.

Home Made Baking Powder

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150Here is an easy recipe to be able to make baking powder. It is just three simple ingredients and taste so much better than the store bought. Personally I think that it works better as well.

The reason that I have started making my own baking powder is due to allergies. This recipe makes sure that the food products that I am sensitive to are not used in my diet. I will probably keep using this recipe even if they were to remove what I am sensitive to out of the store brand baking powders. This will also be a great recipe for those that are highly sensitive to corn products. Even if the recipe and ingredients below are unusable by them, they will be able to to use the recipe, just make sure that the ingredients are safe for them to use.

Home Made Baking PowderIngredients
1 tsp. Baking Soda (any brand that you are comfortable using)
2 tsp. Cream of Tartar (usually a byproduct of winemaking)
1 tsp. Starch (potato – rice – tapioca or other starch)

Singles In America

This entry was posted in Economy, Politics, Stupidity by Cleave on

Couples-In-AmericaWell, its that time again. The time that I rant about something that I have seen in the news that would only make sense to the right wingers and their women hating attitudes. Today on HLN I saw Robin Meade giving a news run down on how there are now more single people in the USA than there are married couples. Why this is news is beyond me but she further went to say that there were fears that this would hurt the economy. The reasoning is that married couples spend more than singles do on products and services. I can think of many that would benefit from marriage in America. Lets take a look at them, shall we?
