Mark is back with a tutorial! Mark requested a leftover tempeh burger for dinner tonight, but I had already had one for lunch, so we’re having separate dinners tonight. This means I get to have Indian food, of which Mark is not that fond, and you get a new tutorial featuring Mark’s cooking! Not depicted is Mark figuring out how to turn on and apply a tempeh burger to the George Foreman grill, but here is his side dish (really more dessert as he’d already wolfed down the burger), “Bad-Ass Tomato Surprise”.
First, assemble the ingredients. Mise en place and all that stuff:
That’s a French press, a can of spotted dick, a lighter, some ginger, one tomato, and an orange tabby.
Remove the sticker from the tomato:
Choose a knife. Mark’s been trained to use the bread knife on tomatoes.
Slice the top off the tomato:
Slice the tomato in half:
Salt the tomato. Mark says the quantity of salt to use is “an ungodly amount”, because “salt is freakin’ sweet”.
Add a bit of freshly ground pepper:
Enjoy your tomato surprise!
If you are nice, share with your cat:
Put away the French press, spotted dick, lighter, and ginger. They’re taking up the cat’s lounging area.
