I’ve been having fun with time-lapse videos lately. Here’s one of me making Chicken Taco Salad from this evening. All ingredients can be substituted as per what you have and how much you like it. This recipe was basically me just eyeballing it.
two large chicken breasts
1/2 cup corn (I used corn on the cob)
a head of romaine lettuce
a couple handfuls of nacho chips
some grated cheese
a couple dollops of plain yogurt
an equal amount of your favourite salsa
Cook chicken until brown and reaching an internal temperature of at least 74°C. Mix the rest of the ingredients and serve.

2. Add rice crispies cereal. Stir until well coated.
3. Using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray. Cool. Cut into 2-inch squares. Best if served the same day.

What do you call the mix of leftovers combined to make one last plate before as you’re cleaning out the fridge? AskMefi has the answers.
I sure wish I had come up with this idea myself, because it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Bacon cups (with step-by-step instructions).
Also bacon related and VERY funny, Jim Gaffigan on the tastiest food in the world.

It’s usually a good thing when someone says they just can’t eat another bite. That is, when you assume it’s because they’re full—not when you accidentally added 6 times too much salt.
So for the record:
Half a teaspoon ? 1 tablespoon
I’m going out for brunch lunch.
