My sloppy concoction is in the link above, Zelda.

Simply put, construction of these sandwiches was meant to not be completely sloppy. Waffle Fries were utilized to stabilize the sandwich.

The Whole Wheat Buns were toasted prior to being lathered with a mixture of Vegenaise, BBQ Sauce and Horseradish. They were then slightly broiled.
The bottom portion of the Bun was layered with a few Waffle Fries. The concept was to hold the SouWe Jo slop intact. The top bun covered the Awesomeness and BOOM.

Beyond Meat is making incredibly meat-like meat substitutes. Personally, I enjoy trying them, but as I’ve mentioned before, staying away from these meat-like products is my goal. In a bigger picture, these products could sway the carnivores away from their norm and partake in healthier eating.

Ⓥ Picklewurst

My attempts over the last few years has been to ride ‘bulletproof’ bikes. I want to ride not repair on a RIDE. Pickle Juice and Pepper simmering. Pickles, Onion, Radish are sliced and mixed with Pickle Juice and pepper in a mixing bowl. Vegan Sausages are thrown into the simmering Juice with a Splash! They are heated and then grilled. As are the Whole Wheat Buns. Need I say more.

SW Rice Ⓥ Queso

When life gives ya a flat on the bicycle, I’d hope you were in preparations like I was today. This would be my fifth ride on the new Trek.

BFB0A3DD-88F5-48F3-B64B-925CA7DC8343_1_105_c

A multitool was brought. Two beers and one water were stowed. A pump, patch kit nor tube was not. Uber wasn’t the best at responding if they could fit a bicycle with. A beer was had. The water was salvaged (in survival mode-periodically sipped) and a trek home while pushing a Trek was experienced.

And Good Food was prepared. Southwestern Rice Ⓥ Queso was influenced by The Sonoran desert and its beautiful cacti warriors, the Saguaro cactus. A Chile Ⓥ Queso was made previously by heating Daiya ‘cheese’ Sauce with Pico de Gallo, Kidney Beans, Crumbles, Jalapeño and Corn. Seasoned, of course, with Sea Salt and Pepper. And CILANTRO:)

As Spanish Rice is often prepared, Garlic, Onion and Jalapeño were panfried before adding Brown Rice. Veggie Broth, Sea Salt & Pepper and Queso were mixed in.

BBⓋ Cauliflower TACO

Occasionally, a half work day fixes everything. Not to say anything is wrong, but a little me-time is extremely therapeutic. I had a beer, took some pictures, helped a fallen man into his apt with his wife, went for a little bike ride in the 100 degree desert sunniness and am now writing about my Tacos. CHEERS.

Avocado Oil, Garlic and Cauliflower was pan-fried and broiled//baked prior to adding Hot Sauce, BBQ Sauce and Pico de Gallo. Quality Taco Shells were utilized today with Iceberg Lettuce.
