Fresh pineapple chunks with grated chocolate
...put the ingredients out so the kids can build their own pizzas
At my son's last birthday party, he and his friends all made their own pizzas. We even had them roll out their own bases.
Then they built their own sundaes.
Pizza hack 3: cut down on the yeast and leave to rise overnight.
No! You’re messing with my entire life of cooked chips now. What does cause chips to soak up oil then?
I think oil is absorbed as it replaces lost moisture in the potato. When cooked from cold, less moisture is lost because the potato doesn't reach a high enough temperature for the moisture to evaporate rapidly.
In contrast, I suspect less oil is soaked up at very high temperature compared to merely high temperature because the potato cooks much faster, giving the moisture less time to evaporate.
The moisture that is retained in the potato also poaches the interior, making it nice and fluffy.
Wheat berries. Boil 1/2 cup in lots of water for about an hour, then add to your favourite bread recipe.
Miso with everything!
Miso with avocado makes for a great fish taco dressing.
On the topic of deep-fried chips, I personally find the twice-frying method too much to handle at home, but I have great success with the cold oil method.
In this method, you put room-temperature oil in your pan. Cut potato into chips and add it to the cold oil. Then heat the oil and cook the chips until they are done.
Against all intuitive expectations, the chips cook perfectly and don't soak up much oil.

Believe it or not, I took the family down to Archives to see te Tiriti in all its rat chewed glory.
It was really very good.
They had a low-tech infographic outside where you could stick a sticker with the word that best describes your feelings on seeing the treaty. I chose "proud", as that best fit the uplifting feeling I got in seeing it. The kids chose "unified", "grateful" and "bored", but some of those choices were based on the colour of the sticker rather than the word.
The idea of covering Wuthering Heights with anything other than ironical intent is a bit of a mystery to me. Especially since I'm not convinced Kate herself wasn't taking the piss.
But when, after days of practice, I showed off my ukulele homage to an audience, based on this version
I ended up offending everyone by being so disrespectful to the original.
