Childhood Food for “Grown-Up” Students

Who says fish fingers can’t be fancy?

If you’re anything like me, you’ll fondly remember childhood dinners made up of fish fingers, chicken nuggets, or even on special occasions the legendary turkey dinosaurs. Sadly though, there comes a time where apparently you’re too old to have potato smiles as a perfectly reasonable accompaniment to any and all meals, and heaven forbid you even think of wanting the birthday party staple of jelly and ice cream without facing a wave of judgement from a mother who expects you to be able to fend for yourself and cook like a sensible adult who has their life together. Well you know what? I want fish fingers, and I have to find a way to eat them without being judged then I will and to me that means one thing: making them yourself with a twist.

So I’ll start with the solution to fish fingers: Thai style fish fingers. While this may sound very similar to Thai fishcakes there is a subtle yet crucial difference in that these are finger shaped and I can pretend I’m seven again. These aren’t even too difficult to make. While they may require a lot of different ingredients, the actual process is simple. Throw your white fish, aromatic spices, a hint of chilli and an egg to hold it all together in a blender or food processor and there you have it, the mix is prepared. From there just coat them in some seasoned breadcrumbs and fry them until they’re golden brown and there you have it – a grown up version of a childhood favourite. Now I hear you asking, and rightly so, what should I make to go with them? The answer is obviously sweet potato smiles.

Boil sweet potatoes, mash them up, then add some butter, flour and some of the leftover spice from the fish fingers. Shape them into small disks, use a spoon to make the smile and the back of the spoon to make some eyes then bake them in the oven until they look just right (you’ll know when they’re done as you’ll be making a face similar to that in the potato). Get them on a plate with those fish fingers and some sweet chilli sauce and send a photo home to let them know that you’re a real live adult who still wants fish fingers.

Another all-star childhood dinner was chicken nuggets and baked beans. The best thing about this is making your own could not be any simpler, just cut up some chicken into rough nugget sized pieces, dip them in egg or buttermilk then into some flour seasoned with whatever spices and flavours you want to try (personally I find paprika, mustard powder, oregano and salt and pepper is the way forward) then either fry them or bake them and, voila, your very own chicken nuggets. At this point you could just open a tin of baked beans and make it nice and easy for yourself but no no, you’re on a mission to prove you can survive in this scary adult world. Instead, buy yourself some tins of kidney beans, pinto beans, black beans or any other beans you want to try and mix them together with some tomato puree, a tiny bit of vegetable stock and some smoked paprika to match your nuggets and simmer away until you have a nice thick sauce to dip into. Even better, you can use those leftover beans to make other meals and not let them go to waste, how adult is that?! At this rate you might as well start your midlife crisis with how adult you’re being, go you!

What about those turkey dinosaurs then? You could always combine turkey mince, cranberry sauce and rosemary, shape them as close to a T-Rex as you can make, coat in some fresh homemade breadcrumbs and bake them into delicious prehistoric themed goodness. Add some homemade potato wedges in there and you’ve got the ultimate treat of turkey dinosaurs made fresh and with twice the flavour you could ever get out of the freezer.

To round off your childhood feast there can only be one way to go, and that way is jelly and ice cream. So far you’ve been a functional adult, making things from scratch and doing your best to try new flavours and incorporate them into the repertoire of dishes you can prepare. That sounds like a big achievement to me, so let’s celebrate with some alcohol. Prepare your jelly with whatever flavour you want to use and instead of mixing in some cold water, throw some vodka in there – the solution to all student dilemmas. To make the ice cream to go with it, you can do it simply with a tin of condensed milk, some cream, whatever flavours you want to add (sea salt and caramel pieces for life) and finish off with a whole lot of Baileys liqueur. Mix it all together, pop it in the freezer and hope for the best… and if it does all go wrong, there’s always plenty leftover booze to make the pain of pretending to be a grown up stop, what more could you want?

    국외선물이란?
    다양한 정보를 알아보세요.

    외국선물은 해외에서 거래되는 파생금융상품 중 하나로, 지정된 기초자산(예시: 주식, 화폐, 상품 등)을 기초로 한 옵션계약 계약을 말합니다. 기본적으로 옵션은 지정된 기초자산을 미래의 어떤 시기에 정해진 가격에 사거나 매도할 수 있는 권리를 허락합니다. 외국선물옵션은 이러한 옵션 계약이 해외 시장에서 거래되는 것을 지칭합니다.

    외국선물은 크게 콜 옵션과 풋 옵션으로 구분됩니다. 콜 옵션은 명시된 기초자산을 미래에 정해진 금액에 사는 권리를 부여하는 반면, 풋 옵션은 명시된 기초자산을 미래에 일정 금액에 팔 수 있는 권리를 허락합니다.

    옵션 계약에서는 미래의 특정 날짜에 (종료일이라 불리는) 일정 가격에 기초자산을 매수하거나 팔 수 있는 권리를 보유하고 있습니다. 이러한 가격을 행사 금액이라고 하며, 만료일에는 해당 권리를 실행할지 여부를 판단할 수 있습니다. 따라서 옵션 계약은 거래자에게 미래의 가격 변동에 대한 안전장치나 수익 창출의 기회를 허락합니다.

    외국선물은 시장 참가자들에게 다양한 투자 및 차익거래 기회를 마련, 환율, 상품, 주식 등 다양한 자산유형에 대한 옵션 계약을 포함할 수 있습니다. 투자자는 풋 옵션을 통해 기초자산의 하향에 대한 보호를 받을 수 있고, 매수 옵션을 통해 활황에서의 수익을 노릴 수 있습니다.

    해외선물 거래의 원리

    행사 가격(Exercise Price): 해외선물에서 실행 금액은 옵션 계약에 따라 지정된 가격으로 계약됩니다. 종료일에 이 금액을 기준으로 옵션을 행사할 수 있습니다.
    종료일(Expiration Date): 옵션 계약의 만기일은 옵션의 실행이 허용되지않는 마지막 날짜를 뜻합니다. 이 일자 다음에는 옵션 계약이 소멸되며, 더 이상 거래할 수 없습니다.
    매도 옵션(Put Option)과 매수 옵션(Call Option): 매도 옵션은 기초자산을 지정된 금액에 팔 수 있는 권리를 제공하며, 콜 옵션은 기초자산을 명시된 금액에 사는 권리를 허락합니다.
    계약료(Premium): 외국선물 거래에서는 옵션 계약에 대한 프리미엄을 지불해야 합니다. 이는 옵션 계약에 대한 비용으로, 마켓에서의 수요량와 공급에 따라 변경됩니다.
    실행 전략(Exercise Strategy): 투자자는 만료일에 옵션을 실행할지 여부를 결정할 수 있습니다. 이는 시장 환경 및 투자 전략에 따라 상이하며, 옵션 계약의 이익을 극대화하거나 손해를 감소하기 위해 선택됩니다.
    마켓 위험요인(Market Risk): 해외선물 거래는 마켓의 변화추이에 작용을 받습니다. 시세 변화이 예상치 못한 방향으로 발생할 경우 손실이 발생할 수 있으며, 이러한 마켓 위험요인를 최소화하기 위해 거래자는 전략을 수립하고 투자를 계획해야 합니다.
    골드리치와 동반하는 외국선물은 안전하고 믿을만한 수 있는 운용을 위한 최상의 선택입니다. 고객님들의 투자를 지지하고 가이드하기 위해 우리는 최선을 다하고 있습니다. 함께 더 나은 내일를 지향하여 나아가요.
