The Pantry

The Pantry

It's hard to learn on an empty stomach. Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT has a foodshare program called The Pantry, where food donations are collected and distributed to students who should be more hungry for knowledge than for food.

Donated food and household supplies go from bins around the campus to an actual pantry where "insecure" students can get them to help them through the semester.

Barbecue station

At Tony Ringtail's 2011 Memorial Day barbecue in West Windsor, NJ.

This setup has everything. Grills, prep tables, coolers, hot pots, ingredients, salsa made on the spot, burgers, grilled veggies, grilled pineapple, shiny utensils and pans, a good arrangement... THIS is a barbecue.

Summer berry shortcake. Apparently they're good judges of how much their guests can eat. The shortcake was tiny and I would have wished it were bigger if I had any room left.

Pepperoni and blueberry pizza

If it works for pineapple...

...it doesn't necessarily work for blueberries. There's nothing bad about it, but blueberries just don't hold up as well as pineapple as a topping. Their flavor's not as strong and they might as well not be there. Maybe they don't have the sharp acidity that makes pineapple stand out.

I don't know how they are all facing the same direction. I just tossed them randomly. My strange luck again.

The recipe was simple: Preheat oven to 500° F., oil the pan with avocado oil, spread out the dough, lay the sauce, sprinkle with ground black pepper and green chili flakes, cover with shredded mozzarella, lay the pepperoni, cover with more mozzarella, lay the blueberries, and bake for 10 minutes.

Blueberry and Wheat Germ

What can be healthier than that?

No, it's not an extracted eyeball or a deathstar. Those aren't healthy.

Chicharron de Colas de Camaron with fries

Chicharron de Colas de Camaron with fries. "Juicy shrimp tails seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper, egged, floured then fried. Served with house sauce, fried cassava or fresh fries and red onion salad." I finally get a salad with enough onions in it! It had a cilantro dressing on it, which was perfect.

Lucuma ice cream

Lucuma ice cream. "Peruvian ice cream made with lucuma fruit." Lucuma is an Andean fruit that looks like a cross of a peach and an avocado. The ice cream tasted like a cross of cherry, peach, and cantaloupe. It came with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, caramel, cherry, cookie stick, and mint garnish.
