Favorite Basic Foods
« on: Fri, 18 June 2021, 13:22:52 »
One of my all time favorites is simply buttered toast. It's better if the toast is a multigrain bread like Dave's Killer Bread. Another great alternative is cream cheese on toast. Drink some black coffee with this, and it's better than many things that take much longer to prepare.

A peanut butter and jam sandwich is easy and tasty also as long as the components are of good quality, i.e. actual jam or fruit preserves, NOT jelly. Neither Smuckers nor Welches can be the brand since they are both totally mediocre at best.

I'm not sure these count since they take a bit of time to prepare, but I also really like sautéed asparagus, sautéed mushrooms, and onions either sautéed or raw (although onions upset my stomach by themselves; they're like eating peppers by themselves in that they just sit there and burn).

What quick and easy, low ingredient foods are your favorites?
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.

Just bread rolls, pretzel rolls and soft pretzel sticks by themselves. Sometimes with butter.

Also garlic bread.

And, of cause, frozen pizza.

Tortilla wraps dipped in sweet chilli hummus (or just normal hummus). An easy and filling snack :)

Scrambled eggs with some bread, maybe a little bit of mayo. Sort of a nostalgic comfort food, personally. Straight up tuna is good too.

Ever plucked a fresh cherry tomato off a plant and popped it into your mouth though? Heavenly.

Bread + thinly sliced Doctorskaya sausage + melt cheese. Optionally with spring onions.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

Doctorskaya sausage


Never heard of this before but it looks good. I will have to make some.
"We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles." – The bold and brilliant dream which excited the founders of this Nation still awaits its consummation. Ours was the first society openly to define itself in terms of both spirituality and of human liberty. It is that unique self–definition which has given us an exceptional appeal, but it also imposes on us a special obligation: to take on those moral duties which, when assumed, seem invariably to be in our own best interests.
The American dream endures. We must once again have full faith in our country – and in one another. I believe America can be better. We can be even stronger than before. Let our recent mistakes bring a resurgent commitment to the basic principles of our Nation, for we know that if we despise our own government we have no future. We recall in special times when we have stood briefly, but magnificently, united. In those times no prize was beyond our grasp.
But we cannot dwell upon remembered glory. We cannot afford to drift. Our Government must at the same time be both competent and compassionate. Our Nation can be strong abroad only if it is strong at home. And we know that the best way to enhance freedom in other lands is to demonstrate here that our democratic system is worthy of emulation. To be true to ourselves, we must be true to others. We must not behave in foreign places so as to violate our rules and standards here at home, for we know that the trust which our Nation earns is essential to our strength. 
– excerpts from Jimmy Carter inauguration speech 1977
