The first time i got the food was by chance. I saw the 1 worker putting the stuff outside for people to take so i said yo i can take all of it? I told them where i was taking it. They said ya of course. I went back the next day and they said they didnt have much that day so i suggested if they have anything to give me a call and ill come by and take it over to those folks. They were cool with it
Ok, so you take it to a shelter or something?

Tried making Jollof Rice yesterday. It didn't come out as desired. Moms liked it so that batch is hers and I tried it again today.

Tomato stew mix. Mix of tomatoes, red bellpeppers, red onion, and a habanero

All the seasonings used. Salt, bay leaves, 3 maggi cubes, ground crawfish, thyme, black pepper, ground ginger, curry powder, white pepper, garlic and onion powder, and cayenne pepper

After I blended the mixed, I fried the red onions in palm oil for 5 minutes. Then fried the tomato paste in that mixture for 5 minutes to get rid of that sour tomato paste flavor. After that, I incorporated the tomato mix and fried that for an additional 15 minutes

This is what the stew looks like after it's been fried and reduced, with all of the seasonings added. I then added the rice and cooked for about an hour on low heat.

I marinated some chicken thighs in sofrito, adobo sauce, garlic and onion powder, black pepper, creole seasoning and blackened seasoning. I basically just winged it with this as I didn't plan this out. Came out fire.

This is how the Jollof came out yesterday. Added too many habaneros. I reduced the stew too much, and since you don't add a lot of liquid to cook this rice dish, the rice was undercooked so I had to add liquid and it came out mushy and too moist.

This is how it came out today after some adjustments. I didn't reduce the tomato mix as much and I added a little less chicken stock. Came out a lot better. Still need to make adjustments to get it perfect. It came out a little too moist. Jollof is supposed to be a little dry. Next time, I'm gonna add less chicken stock, and maybe use 1 red bellpepper instead of two.

Ya,same shelter i always bring clothes and food to. Cuz of covid they got folks living in tents in the park across the street behind the community center. Its like a camp ground.

This neighborhood is like the forgotten neighborhood downtown. All the other areas get attention and funding and **** but this area gets nada.

It’s necessary as flavored ice in this case. I don’t hate them but I also don’t reach for them often
I feel like it is needed as well. I honestly feel like most smoothies need a banana base for texture and sweetness.

But this is from someone that probably goes through close to 400 bananas per year.

No., not for this.

Even in it's driest form, lettuce is a leafy green that is up to 90% water.

So it IS considered wet.
Never had that feeling while eating lettuce in a burger or sandwich unless you're leaving or to soak in juices and wilt.

Its suppose to be crisp and fresh.

Definitely got a different idea of whats wet.

Cool, you can agree to disagree with the Botanicals.

You having that feeling doesn't change what it is.

Please take the last word.
I don't agree with your made up definition for what qualifies as wet.

You making something up doesn't mean it's correct.

Human beings are up to 70% water. Where are the dumbasses calling human beings wet? :nerd:

Its a good thing I clarified with the last word in this exchange.

i don't eat lettuce on burgers/chicken sandwiches for the most part
but if the lettuce is good, crisp, and added right before eating it's not bad
a cold/hot contrast and an added crispiness for a burger
