Groundhog Day
A hybrid of Begonia aconitifolia and Begonia coccinea, with juicy edible flowers that taste sweet and tart. Should make an interesting salad.

Trashy brown rice with turkey gravy and spicy salami spread

Sometimes I eat out of a trash can. (Others may call it a multicooker.) If I have things sitting around in the refrigerator that I want to get rid of, but don't want to just throw it away, I throw it in the trash can with some rice and cook it on the rice's setting. (Unless it's something I can have for breakfast, then I use oatmeal instead.) In this case, it turned out really good.

I had 1.5 cups of leftover Trader Joe's turkey gravy and 3 oz. (half a package) of Trader Joe's Nduja (a spicy salami spread), threw it in with a cup of Trader Joe's brown rice, and pressure cooked it for 25 minutes. The result tasted very much like good Cajun dirty rice and beans, but without the beans.

A Trader Joe"s Thanksgiving dinner
Baked Trader Joe's turkey breast tenderloin with Trader Joe's Brussels sprouts, Trader Joe's mashed potatoes, Trader Joe's gravy, and Trader Joe's Everyday Seasoning. The only thing not Trader Joe's is the Saint Lucifer Spice I added to the turkey.

If I had known it would take a couple of overnights to defrost a couple of tenderloins, I'd have had Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving instead of Saturday.

Yes, The Plate is back. Gush away.
