Spaghetti with corn bread Probably the first and one of the only real meals I know how to cook.
Cooking's easy if you have a recipe
Gonna try to make Oreo-stuffed chocolate-chip cookies tonight. It may or may not end in disaster.
Not cooking. Going out for Mexican (I think!) tonight. Shredded beef burrito, refried beans, Spanish rice, guacamole ...
I made a sizeable batch of Beef Goulash last night, so that will also be tonight's dinner with some buttered, parsleyed noodles. Meanwhile, I am dry-marinating some beef short ribs to braise later in the week.
Not cooking, wish I was. Preferably something out of Jamie Oliver's cookbook, Kedgeree sounds awesome right now.
MSU Dorm food is cool and all with Shrimp, Sushi, and Fresh subs, but I guess I just have to settle with it.
Taco! And dad and I always make way too much, so we'll be having it for a few days. Not a problem really
With @Laurin Kelly entering the wild world of sous vide, @big soft moose and I sharing a passion for smoking stuff, and @Homer Potvin being the repository of all things in the kitchen and dining room, I think it might be fun to resurrect this thread.
Of course, it's New Year's Eve, so I'm sending out for pizza, but I just wanted to get the ball rolling
yeah its pissing with rain here - I'm not going to be smoking anything tonight.
Ham. A big ol' bone-in ham, whose leftovers will go into split pea soup later in the week. I guess I have to find my immersion blender if I'm going to pull this off properly. If I can't find it, I'll buy a new one, because split pea soup is totally worth it.
I live in an apartment, so rain is good, keeps from bothering the neighbors/smoking their laundry.
I feel very traditional. We just (5 minutes ago) nailed this evening's menu.
Avocado & shrimps, white wine
Fillet of beef, some potato puck stuff, with red-wine sauce, red wine
Creme brulee, coffee
And at midnight champagne.
The brulee we did yesterday, the champagne has been in the cellar fridge since last new year. (My wife often falls asleep before 12 and then it feels foolish to open the bottle).
I feel even more traditional when I see this written.
Happy New year to all of you.
Tonight is New Year's Eve so we traditionally have hot and cold appetizers for dinner. we're having smoked salmon, cheese platter, bourbon meatballs, egg rolls, and lots of champagne. Tomorrow for New Year's Day I'm making red wine braised beef short ribs over creamy cheesy polenta and making confit garlic brussel sprouts in the sous vide machine.
Is it new years eve? Guess I'll work for 12 hours, move 1500 plates, and maybe have enough time to cram a taco or two into my mouth. Assuming I don't drive into the river or hang myself in the walk-in first. Or fake a heart attack and pay the ambulance driver to just drop me off at home. That's an old trick... seen it happen before.
Seriously, I think we prepped over two hundred pounds of chicken wings last night and who knows how many cases of French fries. You can't even walk into the cooler right now, let alone find room to hang yourself. We're hoping that with the kiddies back in school on tuesday the hoople-heads will be driving back to Hoopledonia so we only get mildly cornholed tonight, but that's probably delusional.
I'll be eating a tesco fish pie and intermittently writing while comforting a collie dog who's frightened of fireworks (I'm hoping the rain will get worse and all the fireworks fizzle) - ahh the rock and roll lifestyle
That all sounds good but due to a gastrointestinal issue, I am forced to eat bland baked chicken with rice, limited seasonings.
I'm not feeling well, either. But it's just short term, so I haven't figured out a whole upset-tummy menu. I'm just gonna eat a banana and some yogurt and call it a night. Damn, I'm a wild one!
Well, some of those dank, dark yogurt dens are in the bad parts of town. Banana fiends prowl the alleys. Be careful - even the cops are scared of those places. In fact, you should stick to the cheese pizza neighborhoods - they're safer. The nuts and berries crowd tends to avoid them.
I know I'm not feeling well when the temptation of pizza doesn't even stir my interest.
I appreciate your cautions about the other items, though. I'll be as careful as I can, under the circumstances.
Yeah it's no fun. I used to have an iron-stomach, now I have the digestive system of 90 year old.
"A whole flock of sandwiches" (--Nora Charles) while watching The Thin Man marathon on TCM.
Menu edit (changed as the marathon went on):
"Flock of sandwiches": Hot Brisket of Beef on onion roll, or Turkey-Avocado
Warm Crab Dip with Scallions and Almonds (Rose Marie's recipe)
Chocolate Chip-M&M Cookies
Can't find champagne here (was scared of the $4/ bottle stuff they were calling that), so if anyone's having a glass of Veuve Cliquot, please savor a sip for me!
Well this was a damn success story! I'm officially hooked on sous vide.
Toasting bread counts as cooking, right?
It did on the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! And, I love buttered toast so much I'd consider requesting it as my last meal.
