Crab Mashed Potatoes

In 2003, Alberta (which is a province in Canada, which is part of North America) had a mad cow disease scare. If you don’t know what mad cow disease is, it’s a neurological disease that you get from eating tainted beef. Symptoms include insomnia, depression, personality and death. And, being eight, I was scared. Really scared.

My mother banned all beef from the house during that time. People were scared and she didn’t want any of us to get sick.

Orange Chicken

Wouldn’t it be cool if we didn’t use dollars, Euros, yen, or pesos any more? Instead, we could use oranges. You would go buy a car with, say, 800 oranges. You would bring them in a wheelbarrow, or you could bring some oranges in juice form. If you were out camping you wouldn’t have to catch your dinner, you could eat some cash! It makes perfect sense if you don’t think about it.

Wallets would have to be altered though. Most wallets can’t hold multiple oranges so they would have to be changed into knapsacks. This means an entirely new market. This idea also means that people will get more exercise because they’d be carrying around more weight. It also promotes healthy eating.

Chicken Parmesan with Grilled Polenta

Chicken parmesan is my favourite chicken dish and I think that everyone should have it at least three times a day. Crispy chicken smothered in tomato sauce and cheese is a definite win. In fact, one of my friends decided not to become a vegetarian because of this recipe. When you add grilled polenta it becomes even better! This time I also added a mixed green salad to offset the richness of the chicken.

The recipe is relatively simple and involves pounding chicken breasts, dredging them in flour, dipping them in an egg wash, and then in breadcrumbs.
