So before I forget here is the recipie for the Pork Pot Roast that I did the other day in the crock pot.
Everything, pork, potatoes, onions, veggies, green tea grown in Ontario, even the cherries I put on top where from within the 100 mile radius, all from Ontario.
Pan seared the Pot Roast in my Cast Iron Frying Pan,
Put some Green Tea in the bottom of the Crock Pot
put in the Pork Loin Roast,
added in 5 large Potatoes (Ontario Whites)
– poked them with a fork a few times before putting them in
put Veggies on top
added some cherries on top for a bit of sweetness
Covered the crock pot, cooked on High for 4 hrs,
then on simmer until Dinner time of 7pm
Took it out, cut the string around the pork roast as it just fell off the fork.
Hearty Omelette vegg or meat
Hearty Omelette Variations
3 eggs beaten
Garlic 5 cloves
Red Onion 1/3
Spinach handful, chopped up / ground up / shredded
Flax Protein Powder/ Hemp Protein Powder
note: need to find some good No Milk Cheese sub)
Use Cast Iron Frying Pan, Large
maybe even the spinach if you want, it changes the taste a lot
remove from pan / or use a smaller pan for this, you are just stirring and pre-cooking
Main large cast iron Frying pan
little oil, up to you (tip from Jamie Oliver; use 1/2 and 1/2 veg oil and extra virgin olive oil, cheaper and great taste )
cast iron fry pan should be on med (6-7)
put in the beaten up eggs
wait a moment for it to solidify on bottom
put in your ingredients
wait a moment, I cover it to keep heat and moisture in
flip up the one side to cover
reduce heat to min or 0, remember cast iron holds the heat very well, so it is eco friendly that way, it will also keep cooking it at a temp
now flip it over, quickly! cover, to keep in the moisture (I like it moist not dry)
do not worry if some of it falls out, it is all good, this is not Iron Chef or Chef Ramsie’s show 🙂
wait a moment, use flipper to peek in a moment, it should look and feel done, the bottom side you want golden and not burnt
use flipper put onto plate right away! (or it will still cook)
if you are doing more than one, cover with a lid/tin foil or put into the oven, with it on low temp to keep it hot/warm
wipe out cast iron frying pans completely, dribble some oil in pans, wipe, let sit on hot element to re-season (important)
Notes; using cast iron, takes some getting used to, but you will love it
use gloves with the handles, yes it is heavier, but aww so good to cook with, use weight training to get stronger arms (or wave pan at husband a lot, to increase muscle mass, Just kidding!)
Cast iron, when seasoned right, non-stick, easy cleanup, useses less electricity/gas, Energy to do the same job and has less chemicals than Teflon to hurt your health in the long run!

Crock Pot Pork Loin Roast
1 pork loin cut in half
crock pot low height, as it will simmer all day
2 very large carrots put on bottom, broken into two pieces each

Modern Food, Anti-Biotics Dangerous Super Bugs
FOOD modern Food Danger Will Robinson!
a couple of days ago, I watched a Marketplace CBC Report on the dangers of the Antibiotics and steroids etc, that they put into chickens, from Eggs to Chicken in cages and afterwards! The report used independent Labs, found that there were up to 8 SuperBugs that could not be treated with Anti-Biotics, including the ones given to pregnant Women! It affects us all, this causes our bodies, and foods to create viruses etc, that Can Never Be Treated! People need to go to Hospital for intensive Intervenes treatments for simple colds and flue’s.
I am now looking for local food growers, who are Organic, do not use Anti-Biotics, and are reasonably priced!
