I've been so very busy between working both jobs that I haven't found the time to film the next Animal News Recap! I'm off on Saturday and will be filming and uploading then! Make sure to visit my channel and subscribe in advance of my newest video!
A perfectly cooked potato is a wonderous thing. I can enjoy them pretty much any way you cook them but I absolutely love oven "frying" them. To oven fry a potato, you simply add enough oil to the sheet pan that the potatoes will "fry" at the high temperature needed to cook the potatoes. The result is crispy, perfectly golden brown potatoes that are begging for a fresh and delicious topping!
The perfect contrast comes from the fresh tomato salad. Tomatoes, cucumbers, feta cheese, and herbs tossed in a light dressing and placed on top of the crispy potatoes for a fresh kick to the crispy, savoury potato slices. The fresh salad pops against the crispy, salted potatoes making every bite a combination of hot & cold as well as fresh and savoury. Everything works so well together, I think y'all are going to be hooked on these taters!

My next video will be coming out very soon so I wanted to share the week's topics with you in advance. Get fired up about things before the video so we can really have a great discussion!
ERADICATING THE GREY SQUIRREL IN THE UK - The grey squirrel was brought over to England in the late 1800's and since its arrival, locals have taken note of the problems they supposedly bring with them. Most importantly, the native red squirrel is dying off and people are blaming the grey squirrel. Several initiatives are in place to convince the people to start slaughtering grey squirrels. Is this the right approach? Can killing thousands of grey squirrels really be the only solution?
SADISTIC ABUSE OF CHICKENS IN BC - Mercy for Animals went undercover and exposed some seriously grotesque abuse of chickens. This particular company has already been busted for abuse on their cattle farms and now it's happening within their chicken industry. Punishment is not enough, let's talk about how this is happening and why it takes undercovers to expose it!
LIVE DONKEY FED TO TIGERS AT CHINA ZOO - China has one of the poorest reputations when it comes to animals. They are consistently proving that they have no regard for animal life and this is no different. Onlookers at this zoo watched as an innocent donkey was thrown into a tiger enclosure and attacked for over 30 minutes before being subdued. These sorts of activities are common here and nothing is being done. The Chinese government needs to step up their animal rights and soon before more animals are abused for entertainment.
This creamy, blended soup is definitely one to add to your soup collection. The two cruciferous vegetables taste delicious together and with just a bit of seasonings, you've got a wonderfully creamy, rich, and delicious soup. It's especially lovely considering cauliflower is coming at a pretty high cost nowadays so using some broccoli is cost efficient to boot!
TOMATO SALAD TOPPED CRISPY RED POTATOES
For being a simple dish, it's quite wonderful. Crispy, oven baked red potatoes topped with a fresh salad of tomatoes, feta, cucumbers and peppers. The contrast of crispy, warm, and salty against the fresh and light tomato salad is wonderful. The salad is also absolutely delicious to eat as a standalone salad. It's a double whammy!
Head to the videos page for my open letter to the Canadian Government. We the people demand better animal rights and it's time to speak out!
Creamy Cheeseburger Tortellini
Have you ever had a craving for creamy pasta while also craving a wonderfully cheesy burger as well? Me neither, but believe it or not, it makes quite a fabulous pasta dish! Wonderfully luscious, cheesy cream sauce, tender tortellini, and a collection of veggies you'd find on any cheeseburger. The resulting dish is hearty, rich, and fabulous. Trust me, it's a great combo!
