OX Tails! My mom cooks them in a 'pressure cooker' she has had, easily for 4 decades.
With potatoes, carrots tomatoes cause - I.m not sure what else. I would like to say unless you try it don't knock it - but I made the mistake of saying that to Norm and he loves it- so I had to share with him.. then I ask my moms friend 'have you ever tried them?' Well.. I noticed he is now a fan as well. I was lucky to get any leftovers. I won't eat them anyplace else, same with my moms chilli.. it was a nice relaxing day, lots of catch up Birthday cake and more.
Would you eat OX tail? How about Chicha:
Throughout the Amazon Basin (including the interiors of Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil), chicha is usually made from cassava, but also cooking plantain is known to be used. Traditionally, the women chew the washed and peeled cassava and spit the juice into a bowl. Cassava root is very starchy, and therefore the enzymes in the preparer's saliva rapidly convert the starch to simple sugar, which is further converted by wild yeast or bacteria into alcohol. After the juice has fermented in the bowl for few hours, the result will be mildly sweet and sour chicha, similar in appearance to defatted milk. In Peruvian Amazonia, the drink is called masato.
It is traditional for families to offer chicha to arriving guests. Children are offered new chicha that has not fermented, whereas adults are offered fermented chicha; the most highly fermented chicha, with its significant alcohol content, is reserved for men.
I eat small amounts of meat, I'm sure you could fit the amount in a week on one plate, so I try not to feel too bad about it. I do not think I would consume Chicha. Who knows.
I am painting! Tomorrow all day- for my birthday I did get a better camera- and have taken better shots of .. BIRD! lol Blue Jays tomorrow - depending on the weather.
Thanks to anyone what has sent a birthday message.. I saw Jerry Kelly posted a HOT laughing buddha on instagram! Made me smile.. so many smile the past two days - no time for anything else.
A miracle today came true. Truly.
I am having a hard time wrapping my head around it and will just try to absorb it for a few days. YOU have to believe! You have to have faith in God and you have too try to be the best person you can be. Not every one likes this person. You will never, no matter who or what you are, please everyone. I speak up, speak my mind and don't take much crap.
Who has time for games of bullshit? Don't f*ck with my family. We are all the same...
it just depends on the extent of your family.
Norm and I had quite the day today... it started at 5 am with a very serious conversation.
Where after a nights thought he admitted to me 'I was right!'
Call the papers!!! lol - Actually it was because our son also sided with me on the topic.
Then, I also predicted another 'tiny' event, what would happen - and guess what...
I was right again! Almost to the T. Today has ben a very sweet day.
Really it was. Thanks for all the Birthday wishes.
Tomorrow I draw.
Amen! GIVE thanks! You will see... Try it! What have you go to lose?
Listen - if anyone has an EXCUSE right now to be grumpy - it might be me.. kinda- f*ck that! Time to get excited and paint something fun!
I'm on my way down stairs rightness to do just that.
Postive Cannabis cartoons coming soon.. Poppy doing Yoga. Kitties in the grass going out again soon.. Stuff for Todd - I am excited!
I need to medicate more. That is a good thing. I thank God it is not with something that is destroying my insides and turning me into an addicted zombie.
I can do this.
I have accomplished things the past few years when I sit here and think about it and yes. sometimes people remind me - I think holy cow - I did that?
I can do this. With help.... I am never alone - we can do this.
