Jeremy and I had been dicussing nachos and I took to craving them so when I was out I bought stuff to make some. I had wanted a big bag of tortilla chips to get more than one 'feed' of them, but when I got to the aisel there was also multi-grains and Omega flax ones. I wanted to get a bag of those since I am trying to eat more fiber [taking Iron is awful for things], but the bags were smaller than what I wanted. I finally settled on a some-what larger bag of low-sodium tortilla chips.
I also did not know that we had a few tomatos left over so I made a somewhat guacamole. Avocado, red onion, tomato, garlic, tinned jalapeno peppers, and since I had not planned on making it I used a bit of dill for a herb.
These were so good O:
And there are a lot more peppers on there, but sadly the orange & yellow ones look more like the colour of the cheese.
But I added about 50ml of cognac to it [2/3 to the batter and 1/3 to the cherry conserve]. I also only used 28oz of canned cherries, and made the remainder with cherries I pitted and boiled for a bit. I also used 2 grated Aero Dark bars for the sides, thus having a 4 layer cake.]
AND when I Wikipedia-ed 'turducken' to make sure I spelled it right, I got to read this:
The largest recorded nested bird roast is 17 birds, attributed to a royal feast in France in the early 19th century (originally called a Rôti Sans Pareil, or "Roast without equal") - a bustard stuffed with a turkey, a goose, a pheasant, a chicken, a duck, a guinea fowl, a teal, a woodcock, a partridge, a plover, a lapwing, a quail, a thrush, a lark, an Ortolan Bunting and a Garden Warbler.  The final bird is small enough that it can be stuffed with a single olive; it also suggests that, unlike modern multi-bird roasts, there was no stuffing or other packing placed in between the birds. This dish probably could not be legally recreated in the modern era as many of the listed birds are now protected species..
WHO COMES UP WITH THIS?! Do they really need to have that much meat at a sitting?! WTF!? D:
I used a bowl instead because I was scared of making a mess. I also didn't have chocolate chips so I broke-up a bit of a chocolate bar [hence the peanuts].
RECIPE: 4 tablespoons flour 4 tablespoons sugar 2 tablespoons cocoa 1 egg 3 tablespoons milk 3 tablespoons oil 3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional) a small splash of vanilla extract 1 large coffee mug
Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well. Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed! Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
It would defiantly need to be served with syrup or icecream/frozen yogert, as it is rather dense/dry.
I just found this community through LJ-Spotlight, and went digging for pictures of some of the 'bento' I made to take to school in the past year. [please excuse the quality of some of the pictures, my old camera wasn't very good] High School:
Lettuce & pepper salad with dressing & popped apple seeds, onigirl with sundried pepper eyes, mini spagetti [molded in a muffin tin then frozen], Arrowroot biscuits, and apple slices.
