10-11 is police code for "transmitting too rapidly". In other words, slow down, no entiendo!
 


Interesting.....

"Amorphophallus titanum" is a flowering plant with the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world. The species is endemic to Sumatra. Its rotting flesh smell gives the plant other alternative names such as the corpse flower or carrion plant. Its smell is designed to attract insects such as flies and carrion beetles, which normally feed on decaying flesh, which will help pollinate it.
The spathe is green on the outside but the flower head is red, so it looks like meat. This plant is really cunning – as it blooms it gives out quite a lot of heat, up to 36°C, which encourages the molecules to spread out by helping them vaporize, and also confirms the impression of “warm meat”. The insects crawl over the spathe to leave their eggs in what they believe to be rotten meat, in the process transferring pollen – and this pollinates the plant.




Bacon and Cheese Lover's Pie from Mr. Food....


Do you love bacon? How about cheese? If you nodded enthusiastically to either of those, then you're about to experience something wonderful...a Bacon and Cheese Lover's Pie. It's a quiche-style dish that's absolutely loaded with cheese, bacon, and some chopped spinach. You'll be smiling from your first forkful to your last.

 

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust (from a 17-ounce package)
  • 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup real bacon bits
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained, and squeezed dry
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Place pie crust in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate and flute edges.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cheddar and Swiss cheeses; sprinkle half the mixture into bottom of pie crust. Sprinkle bacon bits over cheese, top with spinach, then remaining cheese.
     
  3. In the same bowl, combine eggs, half-and-half, onion powder, and pepper; beat until thoroughly mixed. Pour into pie crust; sprinkle with nutmeg. 
     
  4. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
     
  5. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

Food lovers across the country enjoy National Sausage Pizza Day on October 11th each year. Whether served on a thin or thick crust, sausage pizza goes well with other toppings, too. Don’t hesitate to add mushrooms and a variety of cheeses. What’s even better about sausage pizza are the different kinds of sausage to choose from.
While Italian sausage may be preferred, try experimenting. Add more garlic or try additional spice. Try smoky sausages such as chorizo or even a kielbasa visit with your local butcher for sausage suggestions. They’ve probably been smoking up the latest experiment just for you to try.
Sausage comes in many combinations, too. Lighter forms and different ages offer flavors that complement our toppings. A little sweet with the savory creates a modern taste experience.
Sautéd onions add amazing flavor to sausage pizza. While cooking up the onions add a few portabella mushrooms to the pan. Once you’ve added them to your pizza, sprinkle the top with feta cheese and fresh basil. You won’t regret it.
