Graham's Bachelor Week: Day 5

Well I ate the Mayo Jaga today, and boy is it filling. Honestly you could probably feed 3 people off one of those things, and that's with a little frozen cheese pizza.

The taste was awesome, but it might could have used real bacon instead of the bacon bits I had laying around. Not that it was off-putting or anything, plus it made the whole thing vegetarian, but I think a crumbled slice or two of the real stuff would have given it a richer flavor.

Basically I just boiled a huge red potato (chopped) while I cooked the pizza, then when the pizza was about done I mashed the potato with three tablespoons of mayo and a tablespoon of bacon bits. I spread that on top of the pizza and put it under the broiler for a couple of minutes.

Actually it might work out best as a party food; let it cool a little bit and cut it into bite-size squares. Or just be a big ol' pig and tear one down for breakfast. The choice is yours!

Mother May-O
You know, I've never used mayonnaise in my mashed potatoes before. I don't even know if that's something people commonly do. Could be a regional thing. Apparently it's a Japanese thing, but why hadn't I heard of it before?

I was worried it was going to taste really odd in the taters, but when I tasted it (pre bacon bits) it was actually quite good. It's creamy but it doesn't get all melty or oily. Maybe because I was using low-fat mayo, but I think it'd probably work with the full-fat stuff.

Also, I really enjoy the flavor of mayonnaise. Not by the spoonful right outta the jar, but you know, on sammiches and such. I don't understand how people don't like it. It's such a basic condiment, right there along with ketchup and mustard. It's like saying, "Salt? No, never really got into it."

Dust in the wind
Strange that this week will be over in a couple of days. Well, not so strange really. I guess strange would be if it were ending in eight or nine days.

"It's been almost a fortnight since last Saturday. I can't bear it."

"Yes, it's quite harsh, but on the other hand it's a good time to take out a loan."
