The BARF, or “bones and raw food” diet, has picked up a lot of traction in recent years. It sounds pretty disgusting (both due to the acronym and the meaning of the letters), but the participants don’t seem to care. Instead, they live happy, healthy lives while eating ground-up animal parts that you would normally discard.
I’ve got many great memories of idyllic summers spent basking in the sun with a cup of shaved ice in my hand. While future me would tell past me to wear more sunscreen, I’m eager to pass along these wonderful times to the next generation. These are my favorite shaved ice machines to use when those opportunities arise. Of course, they’re also great for enjoying shaved ice yourself, or even for making mixed drinks.
Whether you’ve got a full-sized home bar or you just have a setup in your kitchen that doubles as a bar, you might have noticed that things aren’t quite the same as they are in a professional bar. For starters, you’ve (probably) got a more limited supply of alcohol. You also don’t have beer on tap, you have to wash the dishes yourself, and you might not have timed pour nozzles on every single bottle of booze in your arsenal.
Italian food is an American invention. I’m not trying to say that the Italians don’t have their own unique cuisine, of course. They love to make delicious dishes that you can’t really find outside of Italy. What I am saying is that the pizza, pasta, and tomato sauce you probably think of when you think about Italian food are all very Americanized dishes.
The California roll is very popular especially among the sushi lovers who prefer eating raw seafood. In most cases, it may contain crab meat bar (kani), avocado and cucumber. Some people, like in my case, prefer to use carrots, pickled daikon, or fruits like banana or mango to spice it up and achieve a flavor of their liking. The California inside-out roll (also fondly referred to as Uramaki), is widely used as a base for the preparation of different sushi rolls.
