New 2020-06-24 Atlantica Space Opera Characters

The following are characters that I created yesterday for my Atlantica Worlds space opera.

Asylian Merc

This is a character I haven't named yet. He is a merc (a mercenary tracker) living on Planet Asylia in the Atlantica Asteroid Belt. He is the rebellious son of the evil Dr. Jaymus. He was discharged from the Atlantica Federation Spacefleet because of Dr. Jaymus. His face was scarred by a chimerasaur raptor created by Dr. J.

Dr. Jaymus is a leading HARP (Heuristics Atlantica Research Program) scientist, where he conducts questionable experiments.

Jade

One of my newest characters for our space opera is Jade. She was exiled by her Charite Church from the Atlantica Federation and onto Planet Asylia in the Atlantica Asteroid Belt. She is the only person in the planetary system that her friend, Dr. Jaymus' son, trusts. She is a spiritual person with great superpowers.

Atlantica Prime Hacker

I haven't come up with a name for this character yet. He is Jade's cyborg brother. He's a super-hacker with cybernetic eyes, arms, and part of his spine. He was injured in an Atlantica Federation Spacefleet training exercise when he was onboard a spaceship that crash-landed.

Breakfast Burrito With Eggs, Sausages, Bell Peppers, Onions, Cheese, and Salsa

This is my take on a breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs, breakfast sausages, chopped and stir-fried bell peppers and onions, melted Mexican 4-cheese blend, and medium-hot salsa.

I cracked 5 eggs and poured them into a bowl.

I beat the eggs with a whisk until the egg white was evenly mixed with the yolk. If the eggs are not evenly mixed, the scrambled eggs will be spotted with egg whites.

I added milk to the egg mix and cooked the scrambled eggs by stirring the cooked parts towards the center repeatedly on medium-low heat.

I added parsley flakes as I was cooking the scrambled eggs. You can add any variety of your choice seasoning at this point.

I cooked 4 breakfast sausage patties on medium-low heat. You can use any choice meats, such as small pieces or strips of chicken for example.

I cut the sausage patties into small pieces using a spatula and a wooden spoon.

I stir-fried onions and green, yellow, and red bell peppers in a small pan on medium-low heat.

I put a small amount of olive oil in a small pan, on low heat, and covered a Mexican soft flower tortilla with the olive oil on both sides. I put the Mexican 4-cheese blend on one side and scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage pieces, and stir-fried bell peppers and onions on the other half.

I let the shredded cheese melt just a little bit.

I prefer to have the salsa on the side so that I can add to the breakfast burrito as I eat it. This way I won't add too much salsa to overwhelm the flavors of the breakfast burrito.

I kept the extra portions in case I want to cook another tortilla or save them for the next day.

This is a very delicious breakfast. In hindsight, I would have put less ingredient portions into each burrito to make it easier to fold the burrito.

Mashed Potatoes with Gravy

This is my second time cooking a meal with mashed potatoes and gravy. It's a delicious and quick meal to prepare. I had mashed potatoes with brown gravy, spinach, and baked chicken thighs.

First, I cleaned the potatoes with something abrasive.

I prefer to peel the potatoes, so I peeled the potatoes and placed them in a bowl of cold water to remove some of the starch.

I chopped the potatoes into small pieces and placed them into another bowl of cold water to continue removing the starch.

I put the potato pieces into 2 pots filled with cold water and added a pinch of salt into each pot.

I brought the water, with the potato pieces, to boil until the potatoes were soft enough to easily cut in half.

I drained the water from the potatoes.

I mashed the potatoes until the mix was smooth.

I melted some butter and mixed it with the mashed potatoes.

I added warm milk and mixed it into the mashed potatoes.

I mixed the mashed potatoes until there are no lumps, while adding salt in the process. I didn't add any extra seasoning, since I was going to add brown gravy, but feel free to add any seasoning you want at this point.

I brought a cup of water, along with gravy mix, to boil and stirred it occasionally to keep lumps from forming. Then, let the gravy simmer and continue to stir it.

I boiled some spinach with a little bit of water, olive oil, some garlic powder, and a pinch of salt.

I baked some chicken thighs with Italian dressing and hot sauce.

I put everything together onto a plate and poured some gravy over the mashed potatoes.

Cooking mashed potatoes is a simple but delicious recipe.
