Other years I’ve put a lot of thought into my smoothie combinations. This year since I don’t have as big of a fruit supply at my ready it’s been a bit more slapdash. But I’ve still been able to put together some good smoothies! This week we have a lot of watermelon to work through and some cherries I want to eat before they go bad and thus the cherry watermelon smoothie was born. Watermelon smoothies are always a lot thinner than the other smoothies I usually make due to their high water content so keep that in mind when putting it together.
Cherries and mango are two very common (and yummy!) fruits which you wouldn’t normally think would go well together. Recently, I found myself with some leftover cherries after baking a pie, and decided I wanted to make a smoothie with them. At first I wasn’t sure what to combine them with, but I decided to give mango another shot at Smoothie Sunday. Thus the mango cherry smoothie was born.
It’s been a while since we last took on one of Taco Bell’s stoner-esque mashups, mostly because it’s been hard to keep up with them. Unfortunately for them, seems like their recipe devs may have hit a wall of some sort, given their latest limited edition menu item, the taco-burrito.
A few of their other recent special products were a bit more inspired, however, such as the Cheetos burrito from mid-late 2016. For whatever reason, a bunch of random Cheetos mashup foods appeared on fast food menus, like the Cheetohs mac ‘n’ cheese sticks at Burger King, and Taco Bell also put out a Cheetos crunchwrap too. The burrito version meanwhile is the easiest to put together at home, provided you have some of the cheesy corn snacks on hand.
So we’ve covered Japanese curry before on PCFG. But if you’ve looked at that recipe already, you may have found it a bit intimidating. It calls for some random foodstuffs and has about 72,000 total ingredients. But what if you’re craving some sweet, sweet curry but don’t want to go all-out? Well, you can buy a packet of curry starter-sauce, okay… But hey hang on, you may just have all the ingredients lying around for this simpler version of it!
Erik and I went to a peach festival last Sunday so I wanted to make a peach smoothie in honor of that. Since I also still had cherries to use up I tossed those in too. The result was yummy and refreshing. Now I just need to come up with some more peach recipes to use all the peaches we got at the festival!
