Mine is usually canned vegetables and instant ramen.

Or canned sardines and Ramen.

Occasionally followed up by a delightful dessert of canned fruit.

Ramen rocks if you get creative.

A little hot pepper and thinned out peanut butter, and some veggies will give you the taste of Thai. Even better if you keep some condensed coconut milk around. (Cheap! 69 cents for enough to make 20 ramen meals!)

I've cooked up something that involves finely-shredded fat-free chicken breast mixed with crushed feta cheese mixed with mustard and other spices on hardy rye bread.  The best of Mexican, Greek, and Russian, all in one.  Served with diet coke.  Thai coffee candy for dessert.

You should get a rice cooker.  At least that way you could alternate your carbs.  If you live near a city with a Chinatown, go to it and find a market where they sell 20 Lb bags.  It's extremely cheap and super easy to make.

There's lots of rice here as it is, I just like eating wheat noodles better than rice.

No brown rice though. Brown rice with a little butter and vegetables is amazing.

Not always. 2-3 times a week, maybe. Some of my staples are a bit out of the ordinary, I suppose.

The burgers were absolutely wonderful! Individual parts good. The full stacked burger with egg bread, chutney, burger, curried mayo, sliced heirloom tomatoes, and more egg bread was heavenly. Will be making these again. But not this week. Next burgers will be salsa verde turkey burgers, with the salsa verde being homemade. Mmmmm.... avocados and spicy stuff.... Yum.

Sure, I'd cook for you. But you'll have to grill steaks. That's the one thing I can't quite get right.
Blackened, pan seared,  broiled - no problem. But cannot grill a steak to save my life.

Wouldn't be difficult this week. Mr. Joy is likely to think you were right.

(Radius & Ulna fractured in bicycle incident Monday. Loads of drugs, and surgery this morning to realign both bones with plates and screws. He's now on both extended release oxycodone and regular old percocet. Like I said, he'd be apt to say "Hi. I've always wanted to meet Joy's husband; you're a lucky guy. That was a damn fine dinner." Then, he'd move on to discussing theoretical math things I can't follow, or economics.)

What Joy is having sounds yummy.  I'm trying to figure out what to have.  I'm stuck here at work until 9.  I'm also apparently watching my carb intake.  I'm up for suggestions from you foodies.  :)

Fruit & veggie carbs, good. Starchy carbs, not as much, unless you're just coming off a big expenditure of calories.

Adding healthy fats, like avocado, olive oil and nuts might help cut down on the craving for the sugary & starchy carbs you're trying to cut out.

A gigantic salad with grilled protein (beef, chicken, seafood, tofu, legumes or eggs) always a great choice. Just skip the breadsticks and/or crackers.

I'm having black beans, rice, and salsa.  Those are the staples of my diet.  I'll probably have some milk and steamed asparagus with it.  And a Coke, my friend bought me a 12-pack of Coke from Mexico, the type that's made with real sugar.

I went out to an Argentinian/Indian fusion place with two friends.  It was pretty good, but I prefer straight one way or the other.  They did have some really amazing meat though (like these honey and chipotle crusted ribs and a steak done tandoori style).  I had a straight-up Indian dish (butter chicken).  They also had some pretty interesting drinks.  I got a coconut saffron cream martini (yeah, foo foo...sue me).

Snazzed up with a few blams of Louisiana Hot Sauce. 
Lol! We have one thing in common at least. I usually use 3/4 Louisiana hot sauce, 1/4  ranch to dip EVERYTHING in, tacos, sandwiches, ANY meat, baked potatoes....
The stuff is just AWESOME...

Anyways, I am cooking a whole chicken right now.
I stabbed under the skin and rubbed lots of butter, cream cheese, salt, garlic powder and paprika.
I've rubbed the stuff under the skin before, but I've never actually stabbed the chicken multiple times under the skin though.. I'm hoping it will result in a nice buttery cooked chicken like those chicken wings you get at the chinese buffet. I can't for the life of me figure out how they get the actual chicken tasting so buttery...
Hope this works. If it doesn't, ah well, it was just $3

Glass pan, lots of butter and herbs of choice, maybe a little chicken broth or bullion whisked in 1/4 cup of water, makes it chickeney.  Chicken never tastes like chicken unless you make it taste like chicken.  Bake it like a cake @325 for about an hour or until its about to begin falling apart, turning often half submerged in the butter-herb-broth slop. 

Then remove from the slop, and bake a little while longer on a baking rack to dry it out, uncovered.  Hit the broil for 5 min if you want little black speckles sizzled on it.  Butter = fire, so be ready to pull it out if it starts flaming.

Mix some butter herb slop into mashed potatoes.   Save some for a-jus over the chicken.  Biscuits and a green vegetable so you don't die of butter poisoning.  Baby carrots in the pan with the chicken turn out good, baked mushy in the butter. 

I always use a few carrots in there, even if nobody eats 'em.  Because they're orange, and I am visually stimulated by warm colors. 


Wow... that sounds awesome. Too late now for this chicken, but I'm DEFINATELY trying that next time.
Thanks!

Sounds like a good combo.  Buffalo wraps are usually very spicy to me, but they taste sooooooo good.  So I suffer while I'm eating it, and probably after, because most of me is actually enjoying it.   :lol:

I make a jumbotronic lasagna roughly the size of a bag of concrete about once a year.  People admire it.

My bro-in-law had a kid a few years ago, around the holidays, and I killed two birds with one stone 'cause he gets wicked happy when I make it, so it was a xmas gift and new baby gift.  I'm weird like that, but he digs it more than anything else I could give him. 

So, I made him this big honkin lasagna in an 18x24x5 pan, fuckin thing weighed about 30 lbs.  Throwaway pan for catering, with the heavy gauge wire supporting the bottom and ending in handles, like a laundry basket. 

I deliver the thing hot out of the oven, with garlic bread (of course) and he's HolyFuckin! all over the house, all kinds of happy.  Eats a big slice, we all had some.  Damn good stuff, loaded with ricotta-cheddar-mozz custom blend ala Brasky, and my patented meat sauce which is also noted for excellence, and won the Italian Datsagood Award nine years in a row. 

Theres still a cubic yard left, 2/3 pan at least.  He's gonna freeze a few pieces, have some tomorrow, he's got long term plans for this lasagna.  Joy and abundance is prevalent on this fine day. 

Next day he goes to work, and his idiot-bitch has her family over the house, and feeds 'em the whole fucking thing.  Gone.

He comes home from work, with visions of heaping portions of my delicious gift clouding his mind, he'd dreamed of this moment since dawn and all through the day of labor and toil.  Gone?  GONE!!?  YOU.  FUCKING.  BITCH!!!  HE DIDN'T MAKE THAT FUCKING THING TO FEED YOUR SCUMBAG WELFARE PILLHEAD ASSHOLE FAMILY!!!!!

The battle was epic, the romance and cheer of the holiday fractured, things were destroyed shattered and stomped.  Children ran in fear of the raging behemoth bellowing in blind starving fitful delirium.

I still hear about it every christmas, like the day the earth stood still, or Pearl Harbor.  Remember that Lasagna you made...?  Yeah, whistfully.  I've never made him another, and when he hears of me making a lasagna, a dark cloud crosses over his features and you can see the scene replaying behind his eyes, that bitch...

We da same, you and me... We da same.

When will these people ever realize, since its not the whole movie in quality, its not the same fucking thing.  Its an homage.  It means more sales, not less.  People will go buy movies if they see clips they like, its free advertising they would normally pay buku bucks for. 

They're fascist idiots.  Their cluelessness was typified by the claim that the VHS tape would kill the movie business.  Of course, the movie business never saw such a boost in revenue as home media (VHS being first) provided.

...and that's just the argument from practicality...there's a legal argument of "fair use" when it comes to clips, as you point out, not to mention the argument that IP is contrived.

Carne Asada Fries.

I miss those.  It used to be my favorite at the taco wagon back home, but we have no taco wagon here.

I have never heard of this phenomenon before. 

Carne asada fries (at least where I've eaten them)=bed of french fries + carne asada steak+lots of cheese+gucamole+sour cream. I add green chile and salsa.  Damn, now I really, REALLY want some.

I need to eat something before work.
Yes, they are extremely bomb.  And they can last you a good two meals or three light ones if you get hooked up.

I make a jumbotronic lasagna roughly the size of a bag of concrete about once a year.  People admire it.

My bro-in-law had a kid a few years ago, around the holidays, and I killed two birds with one stone 'cause he gets wicked happy when I make it, so it was a xmas gift and new baby gift.  I'm weird like that, but he digs it more than anything else I could give him. 

So, I made him this big honkin lasagna in an 18x24x5 pan, fuckin thing weighed about 30 lbs.  Throwaway pan for catering, with the heavy gauge wire supporting the bottom and ending in handles, like a laundry basket. 

I deliver the thing hot out of the oven, with garlic bread (of course) and he's HolyFuckin! all over the house, all kinds of happy.  Eats a big slice, we all had some.  Damn good stuff, loaded with ricotta-cheddar-mozz custom blend ala Brasky, and my patented meat sauce which is also noted for excellence, and won the Italian Datsagood Award nine years in a row. 

Theres still a cubic yard left, 2/3 pan at least.  He's gonna freeze a few pieces, have some tomorrow, he's got long term plans for this lasagna.  Joy and abundance is prevalent on this fine day. 

Next day he goes to work, and his idiot-bitch has her family over the house, and feeds 'em the whole fucking thing.  Gone.

He comes home from work, with visions of heaping portions of my delicious gift clouding his mind, he'd dreamed of this moment since dawn and all through the day of labor and toil.  Gone?  GONE!!?  YOU.  FUCKING.  BITCH!!!  HE DIDN'T MAKE THAT FUCKING THING TO FEED YOUR SCUMBAG WELFARE PILLHEAD ASSHOLE FAMILY!!!!!

The battle was epic, the romance and cheer of the holiday fractured, things were destroyed shattered and stomped.  Children ran in fear of the raging behemoth bellowing in blind starving fitful delirium.

I still hear about it every christmas, like the day the earth stood still, or Pearl Harbor.  Remember that Lasagna you made...?  Yeah, whistfully.  I've never made him another, and when he hears of me making a lasagna, a dark cloud crosses over his features and you can see the scene replaying behind his eyes, that bitch...

God.. I love lasagna, and I make a killer one too, but I've figured out a way to split the one recipe into several pans, so... instead of eating yummy hot fresh lasagna once, we have one in the freezer to pop in and voila, just as good as new. And no, it's not rocket science, I just split the recipe.
It's SOOO fattening though? I haven't made it in months for that reason, but. Thanks for the inspiration, I will make some tomorrow.

I don't recall getting my feelings hurt.  I think I walked over to the stove, twisted my boxers so my dong wasn't peeking out of the fly, and clicked the burner off after a quick stir. 


The spice turned out great.  From straight Zats, added Luziana Hawt Sauce, and crushed red pepper from a stolen red pepper shaker, courtesy of the local pizza shack.

Tonight:
Chicken Pad Thai and Garlic Broccoli.
Glass (or 3) of chardonnay, too.

That sounds interesting.  How do you make that? 

Rice noodles, soaked in hot water during the prep time.
Chicken breast, short marinade time in lime juice, garlic and sesame or peanut oil.
(You can also use tofu, pork, shrimp, or even plain old edamame & veggies for stir frying)
Chopped green onions, cilantro and bean sprouts.
Scrambled egg, cooked in thin sheet, rolled and sliced into thin strips
Peanuts
Sauce: *Tamarind paste, Fish sauce, Sugar, Ginger, Red chili paste, Peanut oil, Crushed garlic, Rice wine vinegar

Stir fry chicken, shrimp, tofu and/or veggies in oil. When almost done, add the drained rice noodles and stir.
Pour on sauce, and cook, uncovered, until the noodles have absorbed liquid.
Add bean sprouts and green onions for last minute of cooking.
Serve topped with chopped cilantro and peanuts.

*Having an asian market in town helps, for getting a couple of the ingredients. The making is pretty easy, if you have the stuff. You can buy kits at the grocery store, and just add the fresh veg & protein. The sauce is pretty decent, though you might want to add a touch of extra chili oil or even red pepper flakes to it, just to add a touch more flavor.

First I took a large metallic bowl, cracked six medium-sized eggs into it, yolks and all, and whipped them with a plastic fork.  No salt / other additives (the Japs would use soy sauce).

Then I poured half a "family sized" bag of spicy corn chips over the eggs, and ate them with my hands.  This involved tipping the bowl on the side so I could hand-dip each chip in the raw egg mixture real good.

Then I drank the remaining mixture of raw egg and artificial flavoring from the corn chips.

I woke up a little while ago craving french toast...so that is what I'm eating.  For breakfast. 

Yum! I wish I'd thought of that before having scrambled eggs and an english muffin with butter and garlic cream cheese.

Tomorrow, french toast and fruit. I'll bake a couple peaches tonight. Will be great.

I really never eat much for breakfast.  Maybe an english muffin, or some yogurt usually.  Cereal if I remember to buy it.  So we'll see how well this agrees with me for the rest of the day.

A couple of boiled egg peeling tricks from my chef dad: When boiling the eggs, throw a tablespoon of salt into the water. As soon as the eggs are finished boiling, stick them into a bowl of cold water and then add a tray or two of ice cubes.

I never eat sweets, but I came across this chocolate bar that is flavored with chili peppers, which is how the Incas and the neighboring peoples, who had the monopoly on chocolate for like 3000 years before Columbus, used to flavor it.

Eat a large chocolate bar + inhale a cigarette = instant diabetic bliss!  Who needs pot?!

I had popcorn - no salt, no butter.  I like it best that way.  Since I ate a big breakfast, and have started taking an appetite suppressant, I didn't feel the need for much.  Also, I didn't get home until around 10, so I didn't feel like cooking.

I've heard that older eggs actually peel better because the albumen is more separated from the shell or something. 

Anyway, I had steak, mashed potatoes, and broccoli for dinner.  It was mediocre.  Whorehay made it.  His steaks are too tough, he doesn't put milk or cream or anything but butter in his mashed potatoes (Country Crock, actually), and they microwave frozen broccoli.  I should've just had chicken.   :lol:  It wasn't totally horrible.  Still edible.

I'm sitting in some motel room somewhere.  It's not as good as the hotels / motels I usually stay in, but, hey, less tax money goes to the state.  So there's no fridge or microwave here, and I don't feel like going out or ordering anything - that would require putting on pants.  I'm just gonna make do with what I have with me: a Foreman Grill (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Foreman_Grill), an electric kettle, canned meat, cup noodles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cup_noodles), sunflower seeds, fruit, etc.  What doesn't kill you makes you... a better anarchist.

Not much worse shopping to be found than in a store packed with a bunch of stressed out, sleep deprived moms with their 2-4 kids clamoring for more of the cookies, candy and juice sugar load they ingested in car on the way between field and supermarket.

Eeek.  I hate the grocery store.  I'm a fast shopper.  I can shop for two weeks worth of food in less than 20 minutes.  It's the waiting in line to pay for them and almost getting run down by everyone in the store that I hate.  Why can't people walk like they drive?  Stay to the right, pass on the left, and don't fucking ram in to things.   :shock:

It says Delmonico, but I think the guy screwed up and put the thick end of a tenderloin in the package.  It doesn't look quite like a typical Delmonico, and the grain of the meat is separated, kinda like when you comb wet hair.  Its about the size of a CD, but stretched out oblong, and well over an inch thick.  Looking at the store, it was like steak, steak, steak, DAMN! 

Its gonna rock on the grill.

Medium well?  Hint of pink? 

It used to be that I wouldn't eat it unless it was completely done.  No pink at all.  But these days, I'd prefer a hint of pink in there.  Because the ones my mother's loving husband makes are like shoe leather.  And he puts too much salt on EVERYTHING that he cooks, so pleh.  Every time I eat something one of them cooks I swell up a little bit due to the sodium intake.   :lol:

Chili.  I made it.  Buttered crusty bread.  Didn't make that. 

I had chili.  Except mine was from a can.  And I has no bread.   :shock:

Yours sounds much better.  What do you put in your chili?

Ginger Sesame Baked Tofu and Edamae Succotash, with a side of Fried Rice.
I can smell the shallots around the tofu in the ginger marinade beginning to carmelize.
It's almost time to pour some wine and eat!

Yep. I leave the onions in big pieces though, because they won't eat those. They like the flavor the onion adds, but find the texture creepy.

It's only been recently I've been able to handle the smooth uniform texture of as-is tofu. My oldest son likes it, but the younger two find it creepy, which I completely understand.
The trick to the tofu is getting as much water out as possible. I leave a couple heavy plates on top of it until it's about 1/2 height, then slice/chop it.
It can be fried for a crispy outside, or baked slow in a marinade, which lets the flavors cook in while more of the water bakes out.

The edamame succotash was modified from a recipe from Splendid Table. http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/recipes/main_succotash.shtml (http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/recipes/main_succotash.shtml)
I wake up to the show on NPR every Saturday morning. Have tried several recipes from there. (The roasted brussels sprouts with autumn fruits was amazing!)
It's great just as it is in the recipe, but I tailored it a bit, to get it past the smallish people in the house.
I cooked the tofu the way I knew everyone liked, and cut up a slice of bacon while I was cooking the onions and garlic, to add the smoky taste.

Sea kittens. 

I want sushi now.  Dammit. 

Not a big fan, but I don't bag on peoples food prefs.  I have my own weirds.

Theres a place about 500 yards down the road that does habachi table grilling, all Jap owned, so they're probably open.  Their food is fan-fuckin-tastic.  I could live in there.  They gots the sushis in every variation imaginable.  Probly except for the death-fish, but it wouldn't surprise me if they had that, too.  This little corner of the world has some very upscale developments hidden in the woods, McMansions the size of cruise ships.  So its not unusual to see some really pricey, exotic shit featured in the menus. 

Sushi is really, really variable.  The best is heaven, and two steps below heaven is trash.  The only kind I've found that I'll never eat again is sea urchin, which has the texture (and possibly the taste) of wet sock.  And I won't eat octopus because they're smart, but everything else is fair game.  There's a place near me that does two-for-one orders on weekdays for lunch, so Boyfriend and I can go there and stuff ourselves for less than $40 (one draft Kirin Ichiban included), and it's about the best sushi I've ever had.

There's a restaurant in Dallas that is entirely fondue.  You can get a cheese fondue appetizer with vegetables, then a main course of various meats which you cook yourself with batter and oil, and then dessert is strawberries and bananas etc. in chocolate fondue.  Not very good for you, and you smell like fondue for the remainder of the evening, but very tasty.  ;-)

Middle eastern dish. Spicy, tomatoes, onions and peppers - gets eggs dropped on top to poach, just before serving.
With flatbread straight out of the oven, is serious comfort food. Is rainy today, so is actually much better day for it.

Weed cures nausea like nothing else can. You feel it before you even exhale.

Hangovers, flu, I even know someone who got pregnant (and knew she was going to get an abortion) who used it to cure morning sickness.

The Melting Pot is ok, at best.  It's overpriced and I think it's also mediocre quality.  I had some really good fondue (and raclette (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raclette)) in Europe, but I actually prefer fondue made at home over pretty much any of the stuff you'll find in restaurants.

She didn't eat the bacon or the cheese.  

I didn't ask if she's a oco-larvo (wat-thefuckever) vegan, I asked if she's veggie.  

She could be veggie and eat eggs and butter.  Some are loose like that, and just observe the basics and avoid meat.  Maybe its soy-eggs or some freaky shit she didn't mention.  

She cooks meat often, and I've seen her remark about enjoying it, but she also does a lot of veggies and I've seen her mention tofu more than once.  My guess, after reading her comments for many chapters, is she is a quasi-veggie.  I think she makes an effort to eat healthy in a vegetarian manner, with a casual allowance of meat just because she likes it, and isn't morally opposed to meat products.  I think you could consider yourself "mostly veggie" if you want.  I'm curious how she would classify herself.

I'm an omnivore? I would probably be comfortable being vegetarian, as long as it wasn't vegan. I like my butter, cheese and eggs.  I'm prone to anemia though, and don't do well on the iron supplements. Meat is the easy way - keeping the iron levels high enough through black beans, greens, etc., requires more planning than I have time and brainpower for, seeing as how I'm also keeping up with my [part-time] career, three children, spouse, all the activities they have going, plus the running/cycling thing.

We do have several meatless meals each week, which I think is important. There are also suppers where I don't eat the meat dish, and have extra salad and side dishes. I eat less meat/poultry/fish than the rest of the family, but it's just my preference, not a big deal. I don't want my kids to have the idea stuck in their heads that a meal is not a meal without meat, potatoes and bread. I'm not saying meat & potatoes is a bad thing, just that there's a whole world out there.

No, you're thinking of ovo-lacto.  Vegetarians of the octo-larvo variety will only eat calamari, bugs and veggies.

what???
octopus don't have feelings ?....or faces?

Don't know yet.  Had takeout from Outback last night and I have some leftovers, since I can't eat much (appetite suppressant).  I'll be heating up the cheese fries in the oven in just a bit, but I'm sure there will be some yardbird involved later.   :D

Ginger scallion meatballs and a stir fried veggie & noodle thing.

I'm going to skip the meatballs and toss some spinach into my noodles before serving. Not recovered from the general "ick" feeling from my lunch from burger king. Everyone else is fine, so I'm going to have to assume my general distaste for fast food is becoming more pronounced. Next time people want junkfood, I'm lobbying for Jason's Deli.

I actually like Chick-Fil-A, but I think a lot of that has to do with it being the safest option in the mall food court when I'm absolutely starving.  I eat their chicken soup prolly a few times a month.  McDonald's and Burger King I'm not a huge fan of at all.  I do like Steak & Shake, but I've never been through the drive-thru so I don't know if it gets icky at the drive-thru or not. 

I feel for you though, my tummy rumbled when you mentioned it - and not in the good way.

Black pepper and honey steak?  Mmmm.  Recipe plz.   :D

Equal parts dry red wine and honey, mixed with cracked peppercorn, a sprinkle of sea salt, and lots of minced garlic.
Steak is going to rest in that at room temp while I prep potatoes, garlic & parsnips for mashing, bake cornbread and snap & steam green beans.
Then, will pat steak dry and brush with olive oil for searing.

I'm going semi-frugal, and using a top sirloin, rather than porterhouse. I love my kids, just not $18.99/lb worth

Q: Should I go corny all-american and throw together an apple pie? I have all the ingredients, and enough time.
(Plus, it'd give me an excuse to skip my run this afternoon.)

Oh, btw - are you going to grill, pan fry/sear/whatev/ or broil this?  I figure you're not doing outdoor grilling since it's apparently kind of chilly in your area.  But most people have some form of indoor grill now a days. 

I think imma have to try this one soon.  It sounds quite tasty, and pretty simple.  I do love cooking big, fancy meals but I just find myself short on time, and since there's only one of me it makes me depressed.   :lol:

Well honestly, it wouldn't bother me - but she doesn't seem to be a fan of slightly chilly temperatures.  Nothing wrong with it.  She lives in the South because she doesn't like the tundra.   :lol:

Pan searing. No indoor grill. I have a "thing" about small kitchen appliances. Coffee grinder/maker, blender, hand mixer, toaster - all great.
Microwaves and millions of other gadgets available - no thanks.

Most time for meals is taken up by the cooking time, not my work time. If I have 30 minutes of work in the process, plus cooking time of 30-90 minutes, it's still worth avoiding the expense of going out for five people, especially since we don't do the happy meal thing. If it was just me, the cost in time and effort to cook at home vs. going out would be very different.

As far as the cold weather thing goes, I like the hot weather, but I'm also quite alright in real winter weather. I'll grumble a bit, but that's just me being generally cranky. The weather I loathe is the damp and dreary 40-ish degree day which is the winter norm here in GA. I'd rather have 20's & 30's with snow than this crap. I'd be quite happy back up in the far north - it's where I lived as a kid.

Now, off to mix up cornbread muffins, and see if my pie dough is set for rolling. (Granny smith, honeycrisp and a fuji - that's what I have rattling around the bin. Not going to cook the pink lady apples - they're too awesome as-is.)

Tonight shall be teriyaki angus sirloin steaks, fire grilled.  Debating if I should do "tinfoil potatoes" or just regular baked.  For those not in-the-know, 'tinfoil potatoes' are sliced with onion, butter, salt n pepper, wrapped in tinfoil, and baked over a fire (on the grill).  Also doing white corn on the cob.

Its summer cookin' above the arctic circle.  I have to dig my way out to the grill.

The steaks came from a butcher in a farmers market.  Aged, marinaded, and vac-sealed in heavy plastic. I also got two pounds of the best smoked kielbasi you'll ever taste, three stuffed cornish game hens, hand made chocolate dipped pretzels, and a bottle of Da Bomb one-million scoveille hotstuff.

I couldn't believe this, but the corn on the cob was way up there among the best I ever had.  I was flabbergasted, its friggin February. 

The trick with fresh corn is to cook it as little as possible.

Corn is an excellent food.  Mmmmmm...that sounds so good.   :shock:

BBQ Chicken, Green Beans, Chunks of red & sweet potato roasted in foil w/butter, salt, pepper & chopped garlic, and slices of honey oat & whole wheat bread, straight out of the oven.

It was really good. I ate too much.

I made two chicago style hotdogs (or as close as I could get) and they were delish. Didnt have relish, had to substitute ketchup for tomato and jalapenos for the other kind of peppers but I had onions and mustard. Also 2% milk, my favorite.

That's how my grandmother taught me to cook it.
Specifics: Bring water to a boil with a tablespoon each of salt & sugar. Drop in fresh corn. As soon as it comes back to a boil, cover & remove from heat. Don't touch the pan again until everything comes off the grill and it's time to serve.

The ancient argument of corn technique.  Very controversial stuff.  I always offer this method, minus the salt, never heard of that part.  Although I usually put a dash of salt in water anyways.

But L's are probly a C III or C IV 'cause they're abusable, make you zoomy.  Half the reason most Schedule meds are in control categories is to keep the doctor from fuckin' up.

Sandwiches. Sliced pears and apples. Chips, carrots & celery with roasted garlic hummus.

Ham & Swiss for most - Grilled cheese for me -  sandwiches on honey/oat/wheat/flax bread. If it ever finishes baking.

Smell of almost baked bread, with butter soaking into the crust for that last 10 minutes of cooking is torture for me.

Whole boneless chicken breasts.

Bisquick.

Eggs.

Corn starch.

Peanut oil.

Sesame oil.

Garlic powder.

Accent.

Salt.


Mix some Bisquick, 1 to 1 with water. Say, two cups each. Throw an egg in. Add some salt, MSG (Accent, whatever) and a good amount of garlic powder. Stir that shit up. It should be kinda thick.

Get your chicken, make sure to flatten it all out, and press it down a bit on something. Cover it with corn starch.

Heat up a wok or frying pan with peanut oil. Make sure it's pretty hot. Add some sesame oil for flavor. (Not absolutely necessary but it tastes good.)

Dip your corn starched chicken into the batter, get it really thick and gooey. Then drop it into your oil. Four minutes per side.

Take out and sit on paper towel for a minute or two. Then get a knife and press straight down, slicing it into one inch wide slices. The breading will stay on with no problem because the corn starch makes it stick. The corn starch also creates that semi gooey layer between the breading and meat, that almond chicken is known for.

Grind up some almonds into powder and sprinkle, if you like it.

I'm not in the mood for red meat today, so have tossed some Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potato chunks into the oven with Thyme, Sage, Pear and a Black Arkansas Apple.

Turkey Tacos and Black Bean/Mango Salad.

The turkey was amazing. Made it the grown up way, no kid-friendly kits. I skipped the standard chili powder & ground spices method, and made a "paste" of cilantro, jalapeno, chipolte, onion, garlic, etc. cooked it down in olive oil, then simmered with a little bit of broth before adding to browned meat.

balsamic brussel sprouts

mash taters
corn
spag & meatballs/sausage

Beef jerky? Huh. The version I found called for roasted beef, chopped.

There's different variations.

I've got three or four versions of it that require jerky, and a couple that use brined meat as well.

The beef jerky type is what I'm making, and a personal fave.

Bunch of poached eggs on top.

My favorite version:

    * 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    * 4 Large Onion -- Chopped
    * 2 Tablespoons Paprika
    * 1 Small Winter Squash -- Chopped
    * 1/2 Pound Beef Jerky -- Chopped
    * 1 Teaspoon Cumin
    * 1 Teaspoon Oregano
    * 6 Cups Beef Broth
    * Salt And Pepper -- To Taste
    * 8 Medium Eggs
    * 2 Tablespoons Parsley -- Chopped
    * 1 Lemon Lemon Juice
    * 1 Orange Orange Juice

Saute onion, squash and paprika in oil for 10 minutes. Add jerky, cumin, oregano and broth. Simmer for 25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Poach eggs in water for 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and orange juice to the soup. Simmer for 1 minutes. Place an egg in a soup bowl, top with soup and sprinkle with parsley. Serve.

I do this often, with different sauces. Here's the one I made tonight:

Slice Tofu. Press between cloth or paper towels to remove as much water as possible.

In saucepan, mix 2-3 tablespoons of miso paste with:
1/2 Rice or White Wine
1/3-1/2 Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon Ginger, freshly grated
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
Red Pepper Flakes, to taste.

Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Add 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Pour half of sauce into square baking dish.
Place tofu slices in baking dish, pour remaining sauce over slices.
Bake in 375 deg oven, turning every 20-30 minutes, until all of the sauce has either been absorbed, or evaporated.

It didn't end up doing a thing.  I'm probably going to die because yesterday I took like 7 Excedrin, 4 Advil, and the Vicodin.  That's all I can remember.  All I know is that at 3:30 after taking the Vicodin sometime between 11-12, I woke up again with screaming head and neck pain.  I just can't get it to go away.  And of course I work in a mall, so all I hear day in and day out is people yelling, whistling, and screaming children.  I've started to develop ways to cut off my own head.  I managed to get a few hours sleep in the past few days, thanks to ice packs and other things that seem to help the pain for a little while.  I'm sitting here with one of those ThermaCare things on my neck and shoulders, and it seems to be doing more than the Vicodin I literally had for dinner last night. 

For dinner tonight I am attempting to eat pierogi.  We'll see.  My stomach isn't feeling so great since I've eaten nothing but pills for days.

I'm cooking up a pot of Rice Soup with Egg (Thai).
Chicken broth with lime juice and a splash of fish sauce added.
Chopped up leftover chicken breast with diced pepper & grated ginger.
Leftover white rice. Bring it all to a boil, then drop a few eggs in, whole.
When they're done, serve it up, with one egg per bowl.

Will have a fresh loaf of crusty bread baked by the time the soup's done.

I'm trying something new tonight: Stir-fried Pork & Corn

It's supposed to be "typical of Thai street food". Long beans, fresh corn, and thin strips of pork, cooked quickly in a sweet garlic and hot chili, then tossed onto a bed of egg noodles with cilantro.

Here's hoping the complaints are few around 6 pm
tipping back a sip of first glass of wine... for cooking, of course

I'd like them to stay home from school for a few days, but my older one gets these perfect attendance awards and the younger one is a social butterfly, hates to miss her pals.  I told them they didn't have to go, and they turned it down.  I'm always perplexed at that.

Almost everyone I know has some sort of funk right now.  I'm lucky I haven't gotten it (yet).  My grandmother apparently has bronchitis, so that's fun too.  I've noticed myself sneezing and coughing a bit...but I've also been on a rampant cleaning spree so I'm hoping it's dust.

Chicken Paella sounds interesting.  Recipe plz?   :D

I usually make it with shellfish, but was trying for kid friendly version. Pulled stuff from three different recipes, but can type up what I ended up including. (I happen to know, since I added it all to my handy dandy "Lose It!" iPhone app. Is great for providing nutritional info on custom recipes.)

------
2 Chorizo or Italian Sausages
Remove from casing. Sweet or spicy - your choice.

1 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
1 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thigh
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
Paprika
Sea Salt
Cut into bite size chunks. Sprinkle with paprika to coat, and salt. Stir in olive oil, and set aside while prepping other ingredients.

1 Medium Onion
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1/2 Green Bell Pepper
4-6 Garlic Cloves
1 Medium Tomato, or handful of Cherry Tomatoes, halved.
Rough chop veggies. Mince Garlic.

2 Cups Basmati Rice (or other white rice)
4 Cups Chicken Stock (or 3-1/2 cups stock, 1/2 cup white wine)
Generous Pinch of Saffron Threads

Brown sausage in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Remove from pan, and brown chicken pieces. When chicken is half cooked, spoon into dish with sausage. Add onions to pan, cook until they start to turn translucent. Add garlic, cook for another 3-5 minutes. Add red & green peppers and continue cooking for another 3 minutes.

Stir rice into pan, letting it cook for 3-5 minutes. Add chicken, sausage and tomatoes to pan. Break saffron threads into broth, then pour over rice, stirring. Bring to a simmer, then turn to low and cover for 15-20 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.

Add salt & cracked pepper to taste. If you're not using a paella pan or cast iron casserole, scoop onto a large platter or flat bowl, top with fresh parsley, and serve.

Not that you want to know, but...
If you figure this dish at 6 servings, you'll have somewhere around 450 calories per serving.

What did you make for dinner Saturday?

Glad you asked...

Steak and french fries in a basalmic / garlic sauce.

Marinated steak in granulated garlic, olive oil, basalmic vinegar, salt pepper onion powder and basil.

Cooked the steak in a pan on the stovetop, whilst deep frying the fries in a wok...

Took the steak off, and used the remaining marinade to de-glaze the pan, and added some beer.  Didnt have any corn starch, so I thickened the (delicious) sauce with bread.

Serve with steak and fries drenced in sauce.


EDIT:  I love to cook.

It was.

Trussed the bird and browned the skin in butter over high heat, then tossed chunks of butternut squash, sliced onion and garlic cloves in the pan & set the chicken on top of it.
Sea salt, fresh cracked pepper and a cup of white wine, then popped in the oven for an hour while fixing the potatoes/parsnips and peas.
Boiled down the pan drippings with tarragon and a pat of butter while the bird rested, before slicing.

I only had a bite of the chicken, but it was damn near perfect. The squash, onions and garlic were to die for.

OMG. I think I'm salivating, just talking about it. I'm not even hungry.

Unfortunately, it's time for the icky part - breaking down the carcass, so I can simmer up a new batch of chicken stock in the morning.

Excellent choice.

I have left over chicken, and a bag of wide egg noodles. You may have just solved my "what's for supper" for tomorrow.
I haven't made that in a while. Just need mushrooms, but it should be a gorgeous day to ride to the store.

I'm not sure why the commenter was bothered by the breaking of the greek yogurt in the sauce. In curries, I raise the temps on purpose, to make sure oils separate.
Do it with cream too, unless I'm going for a perfectly smooth sauce.

I found that the sour cream chunked up a bit too, but it smoothed out over the course of the simmering time.  I think they probably just added the sour cream first and it got traumatized, and then added the chicken broth.   :lol:

I think tonight shall be Tacos. 

Hmmm.  I have quesadilla filling in the fridge.  I could slap that together in five minutes.  I'm not quite sure what I'll be having for dinner, but I haven't eaten since about 7am, so it's getting high time.

Salmon with a peppercorn & garlic crust, pan seared.
Served on couscous salad (parsley, mint, cucumber, red onion and yellow bell pepper)

I wished I'd stopped there. The slice of birthday cake was my one thin mint.

It was a social piece of store bought cake, and not exactly a treaty-treat. Trust me, I indulge in the treats.
And more than once in a while. I like my ice cream & coffee. And key lime pie. And cheesecake. And berries, covered in fresh whipped heavy cream.

How were the tacos?
I have a craving for the spicy goodness. If the wings for tomorrow were not already in the fridge, I'd be shredding chicken breast and dicing tomatillos.

I wasn't implying you're a bean-sprout freak, I know you like the tasty things.  I'm just saying.  I get my hackles up a little when a little-something in moderation causes consternation. 

Myself, I just sorta-quit raw sugar in coffee.  It was bugging me how much I use, multiplied over a year.  I had a 4 lb tub, and used it in about six weeks, in coffee.  Thats about 40 lbs a year.  not including what I use at work, so its probably double that.  Thats an obscene amount of sugar.  Plus, donuts, cake, all that stuff.  Christ.

So, a little piece of cake, you should eat it.

The tacos are on slow, the meat was frozen.  I'll probably eat at midnight.  I'm nocturnal.

Sea kittens tonight.  My girlfriend's grandpa gave me like 6 different fish steaks that he caught while deep sea fishing.  I'm not sure what they all are but I know some of it is yellowtail, some appears to be salmon and some appear to be albacore.  It's all fresh though and the last one I had was bomb.

I baked it up in a glass brownie pan filled with two fingers of milk, a squeeze of fresh lemon from the tree in my backyard, ginger, salt, and black pepper covered in tin foil.  ~15 minutes @ 425 degrees.  I also put a dash of tapatio sauce on one side of it to experiment and the extra kick it gave was epic win.

Its a thinning of the herd, Clarice.  I'm doing them a favor, you know.  Those who lack the survival instinct fall to the process of natural selection.  Those who display cunning and guile may pass those traits along to their offspring.

I ended up making sandwiches for just the kids. American in two, mozzarella and provolone in the other.
I had a plate of enchiladas and a big ass margarita, before the movie I ran away to see.

You know, I don't think I've ever made tomato soup from scratch. Soups containing tomatoes, but never just plain tomato soup. (It's one of my favorite things to have with cheese sandwiches too, unless there's a bowl of french onion soup available.)

You know, I'll be hearing a few Pho jokes tonight - starting right after the kids go to bed. Not sure how he's gone through the last 10 years without figuring out doing the dishes is more seductive than plying me with old puns while I clean the kitchen.

On the dinner front though, the broth is simmering, the steak is thin sliced and waiting to be dropped in just before serving, and the platter of greens (basil, cilantro, bean sprouts, scallions, sliced jalapeno, lime wedges) are ready to go. Just need to start soaking the rice vermicelli in hot water before I pick the kidlets up from afterschool activities.

Wings.  But not just any wings, no.  Some of the best damn wings ever.  Made by Amish people. 

Fresh, farm raised local chicken.  They roast them in these flat baskets kinda like you'd see for trout over a campfire.  They have these big ovens that stand upright, and the baskets hang in racks next to the flame, not above it (indirect heat, keeps 'em from burning).  They do whole birds, ribs, and a few other things like that.  Amazing goodness.

They were mild, so I brought 'em home and zapped 'em up with some Stubbs mixed with a drop of Da Bomb.  I'm finally starting to learn to use that stuff, after ruining more than a few meals. 

Now I'm in the afterglow, with warm heroin-like waves of tranquility radiating downward through my body, emanating from the remnants of Da Bomb on the palate.

Theres an indoor farmers market here, it used to be a grocery store or a roller rink, something like that back in the day.  Big, empty.  Now its The Market.  Fuckin place is great.  Its all mom-n-pop booths.  Produce, bakery, meats, candy. 

Anyways, a large portion of the players are Amish.  Some sell the butchered meats, some have baked stuff.  Amish make excellent stuff, they don't give a shit about salt and fat, they cook it to taste good - and they live to be a hundred.  Their chicken is the best, hands down. 

I don't know a whole lot about the Amish groups, but I think some are more hardcore than others.  These still wear the garb, but they obviously use cars and electricity.  They Do raise barns, you can hire them to build a house or garage.  They're extremely hard workers, I knew a guy that hired them to build his house and they hammered from sunrise to sundown, and underbid by a LOT. 

--

This is Da Bomb.  Its not the hottest stuff you can get, but for some reason its hotter than stuff I've had thats twice the Scoville.  Peoples taste change over time, so maybe I'm turning pussy in my old age.  I fucked up a number of times and used too much, in chili and jambalaya.  One pea-sized drop per serving, if that.  Its habanero.  I've had this bottle for a year and barely used a tablespoon out of it.

This is Da Bomb.  Its not the hottest stuff you can get, but for some reason its hotter than stuff I've had thats twice the Scoville.  Peoples taste change over time, so maybe I'm turning pussy in my old age.  I fucked up a number of times and used too much, in chili and jambalaya.  One pea-sized drop per serving, if that.  Its habanero.  I've had this bottle for a year and barely used a tablespoon out of it.

7.1m is ridiculous and completely unnecessary.  You'd need to measure that by the atom.  The only way it'd be worthwhile is if you're making 20 gal of chili for a festival. 

I usually buy stuff like this from a stand where I can handle the bottles.

100% true...it's obnoxious & can't have ANY flavor at that point
i had a mishap w/ dave's insanity sauce once.
never had it b4 & put @ teaspoon on the side of the plate....ate most of it w/ my 1st forkful of stuffed peppers....
i was on the floor, in the fetal position,stripped down to my long underwear w/in 5 minutes. the wife had to bring me a glass of milk & a slice of white bread....
i hate annoyingly/unnecessarily hot sauces...
(btw, a buddy took the barely used bottle on an ice-fishing, guy weekend....he said they were eating it on crackers, trying to one-up the next guy....they finished the bottle....how's the rectum doing???)

That'll learn ya.

Yeah, flavor.  There is really none.  Its too diluted by the time you bring it down to a tolerable level, even if you like extreme heat.  Heat is not flavor. 

If you want flavor, you've gotta make the food flavorful in whatever way you want without the stuff, then add the stuff to bring the heat.  You can't rely on the stuff to bring the flavor at all.  I usually use some kind of green bell pepper to bring a recognizable taste to it.  You can usually taste that around the heat.  It kinda ties the theme together. 

Sometimes I'll go old school and use real habaneros and forgo the bottled heat.  But that fucks up the deal for the women-folk and kids.  Its usually better for everyone to make the pot nice, and then corrupt your own bowl from daddy's bottle of pain.

I like noodles, they're arite.

But a few years ago, I gave up noodle/sauce conformity.  No longer will I subscribe to the appropriate noodle/sauce ratio.  Because I love sauce.  There, I said it!  Fuck the traditional pasta dinner, with a generous layer of sauce o'er top, and a polite sprinkle of grated cheese.  I will not be bound by those chains, and your ill-conceived notions of what constitutes a proper portion. 

How can it be, I ask you, that chili - in all its splendor and glory - is meat and sauce, with beans mixed in?  And yet the same dish a mere continent away is reversed to pasta with sauce as flavor?  BULLSHIT!!

Treat the pasta as chili treats the beans, and you will see life in a whole new light.

Best steaks of the summer, on the grill. 

I got three excellent Delmonico cuts, one inch thick.  Hammered 'em a little.  No marinade, but a little steak seasoning shit, sprinkle sprinkle. 

Then, some potatoes sliced into the tinfoil packet, onion pepper salt butter butter oregano parsley butter oil salt onion butter pepper and butter.  Burned 'em, exactly perfect. 

Corn on the cob, obvious.  Its fuckin summer. 

Man, those steaks were amazing.  I hooked up the old white-haired nigga rare, perfect.  Medium-well for everyone else.

we've been eating the shit out of cucumbers (small, pickling size) & plum/roma tomatoes
x-virg. olive oil, white balsamic vineg., salt, pepper, fresh basil, sometimes thin-sliced,fresh mozzarella...
that & fresh corn...i'll eat that stuff(&did), every nite...

excell. slather for corn-on-cob: (kinda southwestern) i tend to go lite on the butter (altho, nothing beats real butter on corn) & mix in x-virg.ol.oil as a supplement.
way better for you.

(measure depends on how many ears, obvious)
this works for 3-4 ears:
1/2 tsp. of each:
garlic powder
salt
pepper
chili powder
cumin
add 2 tbsp butter w/ 3-4 tbsp oliv. oil in micro (5-10 sec. max)

mix well & spoon over your cob....
i always use a couple paper plates for corn...you kin wrap em round your cob & spin to maximize coverage...
crunchy goodness.

Not sure yet what else I'll be doing over the next few days, but one dessert is in order, definitely. Maybe I'll stuff the figs with cheese & herbs to accompany a big salad?

Try using red or white grapes in a recipe in place of wine, with balsamic vinegar and herbs.
You should get a really good sweet-savory flavor.

They'd also be good cooked into some sort of dressing, to offset spicy sausage - just like you'd use apples or cranberries.

Hmmm, this will need to be discussed.

I'm thinking that any grape ingredient is OK store bought as long as it only would take one "step" to make it. For example, grapes just need to be dehydrated to make raisins, but wine requires many more steps.  Hence, yes to raisins and no to wine.

But we will need to work this out. I really don't care either way, but this will add a little drama to the competition.   :)

Yes, figs. And the Turkish steak with garlic-fig sauce rocked.
Cooked vidalia onions in butter & olive oil, then added roasted garlic cloves, sea salt, black pepper and diced figs. Poured wine over it, and used the spoon to mash up figs & garlic cloves while wine simmered off. (I'm getting hungry now, just talking about it.)

And tonight, the figs will be stuffed with soft goat cheese and rosemary, and served alongside a couscous salad with feta, cucumbers, bell peppers & black olives.

I was waiting to hear that.

They also have the luxury of leaving with no entanglements.  The tax may be folded in to the rent, but they hold no responsibility to pay it directly.  Renters can also be subsidized on section 8 to receive free or reduced rent, so that knocks about a quarter of them right off the top.  They pay no school tax, either. 

They should have 3/5ths of a vote on public works issues, voiced by the landlord on their behalf.

Bah.  The winter really isn't that bad, in my opinion, but it probably depends a lot on what kind of commute you have and your tolerance for cold ;)

Eight miles each way.  And I love the cold.  Everybody thinks I'm nuts, but I just HATE to be hot.

They should have 3/5ths of a vote on public works issues, voiced by the landlord on their behalf.

the corrective action is to more fully empower others and to re-engage them in self-responsibility...

and definitely NOT to further the failed condition of the 3/5ths human beings and some misled notion of lords and peasants...

those who rent(not referring to section eight bullshit) actually are exchanging value for value(if they rent a bed they get a bed through voluntary exchange...and if they are sold some dirt upon fraudulent claim that that is a "bed" then they have cause to refuse to complete the exchange)

the owner of the property takes the position of greater responsibility than the renter/casual-user and acts as a liason between other owners of property and perhaps other renters/casual-users as well...

that liason is indeed an added value that the renter/casual-user must/should take into account during the negotiations for the voluntary exchange(s)

If the goal of a straight man is to surround himself with as many women as possible to increase his chances of heterosexual intercourse, having a fondue dinner party is definitely an activity which a straight man should be engaging in.  Just sayin'.

The only reason I don't know how is because I'm satisfied with box.  I could look it up and start with rice and spices, and it would probably be noticeably better.

Maybe next time, if I assemble the goods the day before.  

The other factor is -  when I spice from scratch, I'm heavy handed, and I end up blinding the locals with scorching heat, thinking its okay.  Because for me, its okay.  So if other people are eating it, its often better to work from a box, then just give it a little extra pizazz.

Oh. I've never cooked duck before. I should correct that.

  :?  Depends - when cooking something like that for the first time, I'd probably pull out Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Julia & her pals did a fantastic job of describing how to work with the ingredients, and why it should be done the way it is.

After that, I'd be willing to branch out.

Oh! The NPR cooking show - Splendid Table... check their website. I have tried so many recipes from there, and received her "How to eat supper" cookbook - it's fantstic.  http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/ (http://splendidtable.publicradio.org/)

Search recipes for "Duck" - everything from crispy and ginger duck, to vindaloo
Maybe I'll see what's available at Whole Foods this weekend, so I can try the Duck Breast with Thyme Infused Honey and Balsamic Pan Sauce. (Or the vindaloo)

Thanks for the inspiration - sorry I couldn't be more help on this.

Ginger Duck
Adapted from Cooking for Mr. Latte: A Food Lover's Courtship, with Recipes. Copyright 2003 by Amanda Hesser, (W. W. Norton & Company, 2003).

Serves 4 with no leftovers; recipe can be doubled



1 duck (thawed overnight in the refrigerator), giblets removed

1 onion, peeled and cut in half, or 3 shallots, peeled

2 stalks celery, cut into 3-inch long pieces

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 cup sherry

1 small bunch watercress, trimmed and washed
1. The day before, stuff the duck with the onion and celery. Place the duck, breast side up, in a large soup pot with enough water to half cover it. Add the ginger and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce the heat so that it simmers very gently (the bubbles should be lazy not fizzy) for 1 hour.

2. After 1 hour, turn the duck over. Add the sugar, soy sauce and salt. Continue simmering for another hour. Turn duck once again and simmer until tender and almost falling apart, about another hour. Turn off the heat and when cool enough to handle, remove the duck carefully from the pot (it tends to fall apart after so much cooking) and place in a roasting pan. Cover and refrigerate until the next day.

3. Pour the broth from the soup pot into a container and chill overnight. A layer of fat will form on top. Scrape it off and discard it. What remains is delicious in rice and soups and can be frozen for months.

4. Before serving, bring the duck to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Add the sherry and 1 cup of the defatted duck broth to the roasting pan and place in the oven. Roast uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes, basting occasionally with the juices in the bottom of the pan. The duck is done when it is heated through and the skin is crisp and a dark chestnut brown.
5. Transfer the duck to a serving platter and garnish with lots of watercress (disguising where legs and wings have fallen off, if they have).

Pollo Alla Vesuvio (Chicken with potatoes & peas). Picked up the recipe at The Fresh Market.

The itty bitty (now 8-1/2 years old) is doing 85% of the cooking tonight. She's been asking, and I ran out of excuses the other night when my favorite thing to cook was when I was eight.

So instead of just peeling potatoes, she sliced onions, flipped chicken breasts in butter & olive oil, babysat the timer while it finished baking, and is now simmering down the extra liquid with peas in it.

I did handle the cutting and prep of the raw chicken, but have hovered at "just in case" distance for the rest. Smells great, should be ready in about five minutes, and she has only one burned thumb. Tiny spot, from getting too close to side of pan when cloud of steam issued forth from just-lifted lid.

Change of plans, the girlfriend wants to cook me a feast so I'll see what she decides to cook up tonight.

Lucky me! :D

I'll likely be cooking the meat, and I know she has three types of meat in her freezer: pork ribs, chicken breast, rib eye.  I'm game for any of them.  We marinaded the pork ribs in smoked honey bbq sauce, the chicken breast in a homemade paprika, salt, brown sugar, black pepper rub, and the rib eye in a hardcore yet light super secret rub that I cannot disclose on these internets. 

I can tell you dinner tonight will be Da Bomb regardless of her meat choice.

And there's no such thing as too much onion (the last thing you add, along with the remaining spices).  Yes, I listen to FTL while I cook, and yes, chopping so many onions makes me cry like a schoolgirl.  No pain, no gain!


I like to stage the onions. One onion goes into olive oil at the beginning, with the garlic, another is added with spices, for the last hour of cooking, and a little bit of fresh minced onion to sprinkle over top of the soup at the end. Layers up the sweetness of a slow cooked onion with the sharper tastes when it hasn't been cooked as long... or at all.

I was a weight-lifting protein buff in high school (though I was never good-looking), but the protein benefit of meat is lies.  Sure a 100g serving of chicken contains about 27 grams of protein (108 protein calories), but it also contains as much as 11 grams of fat (100 fat calories, more if it's fried), a third of your daily maximum of cholesterol (and you should get much less if you want to live longer), tons of toxins, and very little nutrition otherwise.  It needs to be combined with good high-fiber side-dishes to aid digestion and provide additional nutrition, and if those side dishes contain any amount of protein that means some of that chicken protein was a waste because your body can only metabolize so much protein every few hours.  Eat more than one serving of chicken, as I was often tempted to do, and the nutrition value of your meal decreases further, because the fat, cholesterol, and acid (http://www.balance-ph-diet.com/acid_alkaline_food_chart.html) / toxin damage doubles, while the extra protein simply goes to waste.  A good vegan meal contains all the protein your body can digest at a time, but without all the bad stuff, and far, far more vitamins, minerals, fiber, lasting fullness and energy, etc.  Oh, and eating chicken also makes you a tax-munching commie (http://bbs.freetalklive.com/index.php?topic=31494).  Seriously.


Of course, you have to balance all of that out with the fact that chicken tastes damn good.

Just made me some bean soup myself on Saturday. It was great yesterday and should be outta this world tonight! Plus, it is overcast and a little chilly out, perfect weather for bean soup.

I use a different recipe and substitute the corn bread with sourdough.

I made a new recipe for Chili. Mostly the norm but I soak the beans with some jalapenos and habaneros overnight. Drain them in the morning and throw half the beans with the peppers in a blender and blend. Add mixture into chili. Spices it up a bit. I usually do not care for beans in chili but the added heat makes up for it.

When I was on Atkins I used to make this casserole that involved (at later stages low carb pasta), cheese sauce (At that time I think Ragu had a LC version readily available, ground beef, and I would put broccoli and mushrooms in it because they are delicious.  And a shitton of cheese on top.  And I'll be damned, the diet works.  But yours sounds pretty good.  Also, get some canned chili (I like Hormel w/out beans) and dump it in to a box of shells and cheese for the most disgusting, artery clogging pile of delicious ever.  I like to do it all homemade every so often, but sometimes canned/boxed actually tastes better.  Don't know why.

Anyway, delicious, garlicky potato pancakes will be happening in my house tomorrow.  And this weekend I intend to conquer the red meat demon.

Yeah, the diet works. But then, they ALL work, at least to the extent that anyone can stay on them. Aye, that's the rub--very few people (around 5%) can actually stay on a diet long enough for it to do them much good.

The best of the lot is the "don't eat so freakin' much" diet. How can you do that? Well, you just look at the suggested serving size and then don't eat more than it says.

That one was especially hard to stay on.  The common sense (portion control) diet does not work for everyone, by the way.  Some people eat sensibly, exercise, and still don't manage to get thin.  A lot of reasons, mostly hormonal.  Which I'm sure you're aware of since I believe your wife is a nurse.  Anyhow, it's probably the best option for most people out there!  :D

Atkins doesn't work for anyone. 

Yes it does. My childhood best friend's father has been doing it since the early 70's before he even heard of Atkins. Reducing the amount of starchy food is the key to any healthy diet. Having grown up in Wisconsin he was the only healthy weight father I knew. As usual, the gov got it completely wrong with the food pyramid.

I agree no "diet" works. What works is changing ones eating habits.

Oh and my friends father is still healthy, alive and kicking while many of the other men his age are dead from heart attacks.

Vegan soups based on green split peas is what I'm all about the past few days, trying the infinite ingredient variations.  Adding other legumes or potatoes is mediocre, carrots are OK, but the ingredient that works best is chopped asparagus added to the thin green goodness along with chopped onions and other spices like 5 minutes before it's done cooking.  Whole-grain pasta added ~8 minutes before it's done cooling works too.

This would be delicious served with grain-fed veal cheeks.

In Soviet Russia we ate wieners (what in America would be called a hot dog) not as fast food but as an entrée, usually with a side-dish of green peas:

(http://images.mhealth.ru/upload/menshealth/August_07/gorosek.jpg) (http://www.mhealth.ru/halogramm/spicery/215943/)

Man, I could eat two dozen wieners and still want more!  That's how I got fat, and that's one of the reasons why now I'm a vegan.  So now I'm eating green peas mixed with spicy mustard, but no wieners.  Oh, man, how I crave me some wieners!  I'm going wiener crazy here!  I'm thinking about hot juicy wieners like every 1.5 seconds tonight!  Mmmmm  mmmmm....

Dries out too easily. I get around that by using fresh herbs & finely grated veggies - usually onion & carrot - to add extra moisture, along with a little bit of olive oil or melted butter. The milk & breadcrumbs can help too, but I often have only Very Vanilla Silk in the house, so go with the veggies.

Boyfriend's mom makes these meatball-type deals with ground chicken.  There's usually some veggie-looking stuff in there, and I think she fries them in a large skillet...but she likes to add a few drops of water at the end to kind of steam them and keeps the lid on.  It works and they're pretty tasty.

If you were having problems getting the chicken in the spaghetti without it drying out my solution would be:

Cut chicken into pieces (I'd do strips).
Place into hot skillet with melted butter underneath.
Put lid on. Crack lid and spray enough water on to steam.
Cook chicken this way, then mix with spaghetti immediately before eating.

If its ground already, you could pan fry it in olive oil and butter, with some minced garlic, onion, black pepper and parsley.  But I'd do it super quick and get it off the heat almost immediately.  If it simmers in the red sauce it'll achieve the internal temp and be cooked, so you're basically prettying it up by browning in a skillet.

When you have leftover rice and beans, or just leftover rice & grab a can of beans out of the pantry.
Minced onion, garlic, cilantro, peppers, or go super easy & use a couple spoons of salsa.
Mash beans. Mix everything together & form patties.
Place in freezer until you're ready to cook them.
Works great in the pan, but if you're grilling, you have to put on foil, so it doesn't fall apart.

Am hoping getting to set the menu puts them in a better mindset to try fish.
If not, the back up is dark chocolate lacey cookies for dessert as bribe.

Wow.  If they won't eat it, I will!  Love tilapia. 

Actually tonight will most likely be leftovers of the quiche-like thing BF made yesterday.  He insists it's not a quiche because he made it with tortillas, but it has eggs and cheese and meat (chicken, in this case), so it qualifies for me.  Also jalapenos.  A Mexican quiche. We're calling it a Mieche.  Next he intends to do a bona fide Quiche Lorraine with a hand-made crust.

Tilapia is great. One of the healthiest fish around, and free of mercury. Very tasty, and I love it.

The tilapia w/balsamic butter sauce was excellent. The whole meal was delicious, as a matter of fact.
I'm going to see if I can pull the link(s) from epicurious' website - I got the recipe from the phone app, and I'm not sure how close the two are. Will modify the post to add as soon as I can.

I like the idea of Mexican quiche.  Quiche is something I should try around here. Everybody but my daughter likes frittata, so I think I may end up with at least 2 out of 3 kids eating dinner. (DD can try it, then eat a sandwich.)

chinee food chop chop.

Exra spicee. 


Chinese people don't understand the word "hot".  I suppose Chinese strippers do, but we'll save this foray into the perverse for another thread.

To properly translate "hot" into Chinese tongue, you have to say "spicy". 

Allow me to explain to my gaigan round-eye readers.  I told them the other day, I want it extra hot.  They argued, we serve food hot - and basically told me to fuck off.  Immediately understanding this flaw in translation, I said SUPA-SPICEE!  and she said Ah!  You want Spicy, and fanned her mouth. 

Arriving home, it was fucking Spicee. 

Still not Spicee enough, but I think we're onto something here.  I'll have to pretend to put an extra dollar into tipjar, make a big show of it.  They like their theatrics, and I'll oblige their weird fucking customs.

Thanks. My middle child wants a prank dinner for his birthday in august... I needed to practice as I put the plan together. Sugar cookies in paper wrappers as french fries will be on the side, but that I didn't need to practice.

Not necessarily true. Depends on how much praise is lavished upon the cook, who happens to be mincing vidalia & garlic, to be sauteed in butter with chunks of lobster. Gruyere & extra sharp cheddar are already grated, penne is simmering, and I'm currently deciding between using heavy cream or evaporated milk.

I'm trying a martha stewart recipe I found online. I also have mild fontina, which should melt a bit smoother than the others, but that had to be put in the freezer for 10-15 minutes before grating. Nutmeg & cayenne pepper are going in, so I'm thinking everything is to offset the sweetness of the lobster. I may play with it next time, but I'm following the recipe for today.

He was appropriately sheepish when I put the plate in front of him.
And appreciative enough of both the food and the effort, so no need to torture him... unless he asks me to.

It was very good. I think I'll make mac & cheese with the same combo of cheeses - gruyere, cheddar, fontina, parmesan - from now on, even when I'm not adding lobster. The fontina was the new one. I usually use cheddar & parmesan, and the gruyere, if I'm planning far enough ahead to pick it up.

Tonight, we have a get together with others from the n'hood pool. A no kids event, so there will be drinking. I'm fixing a big batch of wings. Mango-tamarind if I can find more tamarind paste - I'm almost out; Spicy ginger-mango if I can't.

(Minus the mushrooms...) I'd hit it.  I love thai food.

Oh, the shrooms are probably my favorite part.  I see this photo has rather plain mushrooms, whereas traditional usually has straw mushrooms (a pain in the ass to clean the sand out of.)  I prefer to use shiitake mushrooms in mine.  

I use Lee brand Tom Yum Paste as a starter, which I'm sure you can find in most major cities (at asian markets, of course), at about $3 for a 16oz jar, from which I use three heaping teaspoons added to three cups water.  I add immitation crab meat, tomatoes cut into eights (cherry tomatoes tonight, which is what I have), red peppers, fish sauce and a little sugar.  When that's at a rolling boil for a minute or two, I add sliced squid balls (hard to explain--you don't have to use them, anyway), shrimp and mushrooms (the shiitake mushrooms, I pre-soften in boiling water, then slice), then bring to a boil again.  Finally, I add lime and cilentro, and my wife likes sliced yellow onion (you may not want to add any sugar if you do this--I prefer green onions for myself.)  I add salt or sugar, if necessary, to balance the flavor, and serve with steamed thai rice, which can be added as desired.

By using the paste, I avoid having to keep the more exotic ingredients on hand (e.g. lemon grass, galanga root, kafir lime leaf), and I add the fresh stuff.  I've tried other brands, but Lee works best for me.  Exactly the same stuff (probably from the same plant) seems to be sold under the Por Kwan brand.  My wife, from Taipei, prefers it to the stuff at the local Thai restaurant, at which we otherwise both enjoy many great dishes.

There hasn't been a sushi place near my place until about a month ago when one opened up in a gas station up the street. I avoided it because well it's in a gas station. Well my overwhelming need for sushi overtook me yesterday so I decided to try it. I got a Ninja Roll- it was salmon, tuna, cream cheese, hot sauce green onion, and wasabi mayo...then deep fried. I don't know if that still classifies  as sushi with frying it but omg it was wonderfully yummy.   The other roll I got was more typically sushi, and also very tasty.  I still can't get over yummy freshly made sushi where you pay for it at the same spot you buy gas and smokes.

Tonight was grilled Hot Italian Sausages, with complimentary grilled vegetables on skewers.  Pretty good.  I love summer grillin'. 

Tomorrow is Lasagna.  I already made the sauce, its spicy with crushed red pepper, bell pepper for a green gardeney taste, and heavy on Parmesan.  Tomorrow I blend the cheese.  Ricotta, Parmesan, and shredded mozz, with an egg and black pepper, and some parsley.  I'm not a big fan of the traditional frothy ricotta inside, so I throw some bam on it. 

I got a ball of sweaty mozzarella to slice on top, best piece of mozz I've seen in a while.  Its practically thick milk.  And a crusty loaf of Italian bread.
