|Orange polenta cake|
I made this orange polenta cake sometime ago and never got the chance to upload the recipe. Pictures were taken in a hurry. I can promise you that it tastes better than it looks. Polenta adds a pleasant grainy texture and the cake is super moist. The recipe is available here.
Moving onto the next subject, the weather. The first snow for this winter just arrived. It was moderately heavy for a few moments, followed by light snow and then it stopped. Perhaps you have no ideas how much is moderately heavy and how long is a few moments. I didn’t time it and have no way of objectively measuring snowfall. Lets just say it snowed and stopped. I am glad it arrived and the wet rainy moderately cold weather has gone.

Good news for meat lovers wanting to know what is the best meat. Scientists at the Chinese space program in Beijing recently published a formal nutritional analysis of what may be one of the healthiest animals to eat. The meat has more arginine than soybeans, more zinc than pumpkin seeds, and more protein than snail meat. And it has low saturated fat content. Here’s where the good news ends. Its not easy to run to your nearest supermarket and grab some silkworm caterpillars. And even if you could, many of you probably wouldn't. But now you know that at least in theory, according to the Chinese space scientists, this is the best meat.
Farming insects is less wasteful than farming other animals. Whereas 90% of nutrients are wasted when grains are fed to cows, less than half the nutrition is wasted when edible plants are fed to bugs. So not only are bugs good for you they are better for the environment. Convinced?
