Ride a Bike. Drink a Beer. Make your own Food. Take Pics.
This story starts out going for a bicycle ride to the most Vegan friendly grocery store, which happens to be the furthest, to grab ingredients and good Beer being craved.
Dissecting road and trail angles, bends and hills with wind in the face and blood rushed variables, through town and through the brain, the mind opens and ponders craved ingredients into a recipe concept.
After purchases are made, the mind Rides developing certain techniques of how these ingredients can come together.
A stop is made in a beautiful park. A Beer is enjoyed. A few pictures are captured. The miniature journey continues and evolves into a day of Bike Riding, Creating and (somewhat responsible:) Consumption.
Workdays interrupt these days from happening consecutively, but not by much.
Whatever Mexican-style cooking that I have, is unbeatable. However I feel, the ingredients change – adapting cravings, influencing realism. The sense of a certain level of hunger can immensely inspire a spontaneous spark of flavor, economically smartness, picture-perfect food.
There is no time for the numbers and prices. Aldi Black Bean patties, Corn and Hash brown patties were baked to immediately become panfried to create amazing texture and color. Seasonings (Cilantro, Sea Salt, Pepper, Lime Juice, Garlic Powder, Turmeric, Cayenne), Scallions and Kidney Beans were tossed together.
Corn tortillas were flame torched and stuffed with the mixture and fresh Avocado, Tomato, Iceberg Lettuce, Olive and Cilantro.
RIP, Anthony Bourdain.
Once, many years ago, in a culinary career attempt, Anthony Bourdain was most inspiring to me-influencing realism and motivation to be oneself.
Coconut milk, Chipotle Powder, Jalapeño, Carrot, Onion, Peppers, Black & Red Beans, Ⓥ Chorizo and Corn were simmered. No additional seasonings were added other than the Chipotle Powder. Refried Beans were stirred in. Daiya was generously dumped in with fresh Cilantro.
With Tortilla Chips tucked underneath the Beanan Daiya, Avocado, Pico de Gallo, Jalapeño and Scallions accented and garnished this delicious plate.
Chips were scooped heavy and good Beer was had.
