Cooking with HelloFresh

Gave the HelloFresh service a whirl yesterday. Here’s the results

All the ingredients gave premeasured – with one exception (the lemon), that had to be cut in half for use on the salad (I chose not to do this)

 

Half way through cooking, the sausage meat was turned into meatballs and frying happily; and the orzo, onions, courgettes, and broad beans are simmering away happily in the other pan.

There were enough ingredients for two servings, so here’s the result. Not perfect — I need to learn how to slice and dice onions a bit more effectively, and perhaps I should have left the beans to cook a bit longer. Also, there’s half a meatball here because I used it to check whether the balls were finished cooking

Record of the Day: 120-pound Woman Eats 216 Ounces of Steak in Under 20 Minutes – Cheezburger

Competitive eater Molly Schuyler broke a new record this weekend, eating 3 72-oz steaks in less than 20 minutes.

At this year’s 72oz Showdown at the Big Texan Steak Ranch in Amarillo, Texas, Schuyler was matched up against four teams of two, and she singlehandedly destroyed her competition while besting herself in the process.

The other teams included professional wrestlers and football players and they each had one hour to throw down as much as they could.

In total, Schuyler, who weighs just 124 pounds, ate 3 steaks, 3 backed potatoes, 3 shrimp cocktails, 3 side salads and 3 rolls.

Basically, as The Big Texan describes it, she consumed more than 13.5 pounds of food which is “the equivalent of a bowling ball or averaged sized three-month-old baby.”

Adam Richman…. a new challenge for you.
