Oh I can be first!!

I'm making Palek Paneer but I have made a rather critical mistake. I accidentally put a teaspoon full of jalapeño chillies into my mouth rather than into the pot.

I do not recommend this

I made some tasty chili.
No beans.
Today I made it rather hot, using fresh hot peppers.

I wonder if chili will freeze well.  I will try freezing with some of it.

Chilli freezes very well. Mine contains beans (I know it's not real chill) and I cook 6 servings, freezing 5 of them. Great for a night you don't feel like cooking or when you want a quick easy meal. Never be without some stored away for latter.

Thanks Dena.  Well some people like chili with elbow macaroni in it, and some may not consider that to be chili either.  But, if you like beans or macaroni, why not make it that way?

I do suppose that chili could be served over cooked elbow macaroni or even wide spaghetti noodles, and not mixed in as you cook the chili, but chili could be simply made with the elbows for sure.

I put some servings of chili in the freezer and maybe it will be great when I reheat it.

I got my smoker going today and I cooked some meats for tonight and tomorrow. Tonight I had smoked chuck roast with this really good bbq sauce I just came up with, it uses fresh garlic and onion in it and I love it, I'm going to make it more often! for sides I did fresh cut fries and they were great, but I also made cheesy corn and it didn't come out too good, the flavor was fine but I got the pan too hot (I have a gas range, it's easy for things to get away from me when I'm multi tasking) and the sauce started to separate.

A good roast with good BBQ sauce, with fries, does sound like a nice meal!

So when I had my smoker going yesterday I also did a pork belly, I sliced up some of that tonight and put it in a frying pan and then towards the end I glazed on some homemade peach chipotle mustard bbq sauce. for sides I made brussel sprouts and fresh cut cajun fries and pineapple hot dish. everything was great!

Baked chicken wings and drumsticks! Half off this week and this supermarket leaves a lot of meat on the bones.
I salted the wings two days ago.  Today I coated the chicken with seasoned flour.  Baked for 30 minutes at 350.  Then basted both sides with BBQ sauce (soy/cane sugar based) and baked for another ten minutes.

This was last night but was a huge success so wanted to mention!

Creamy Cajun lobster-cheese sauce over pasta with shrimp.

Was looking for something to eat and was missing a lot of ingredients so I figured out what I could do with what I had: bag of shredded whole milk mozzarella, half pound shrimp, lobster base, and some nest noodles. Cooked the pasta real quick to about 90% doneness. Then took last bit of some earth balance and some flour, made a roux and added in some of the startchy water from pasta plus some of the lobster base. Made a rich, orange paste. Added the shrimp and some garlic and coasted them really well and cooked them for a minute. Added a bit more of the pasta water and returned to boil, then slowly melted the mozzarella into it, creating a creamy orange cheese sauce despite it being pure white cheese. Added in the pasta and got everything coated really well, added some dried custom herb mixture (thyme, mint, thai basil, genovese basil, parsely) i have been building up trimming back garden, and some generic Cajun seasoning plus some extra ceyenne. Pepper, no salt (the lobster base is super salty), and let it all thicken up a bit, served topped with parm. Was delicious and spur of the moment with no planning.

Went to a place that opened a few months ago here that specializes in insanely spicy chicken. It is so, so, so, sooooooooooooooooo good. First went a few weeks ago and I've been back 5 times already. The owner/chef sat down with me and my step brother and talked to us for a while, showed us what he uses for the seasoning and everything(50/50 Ghost Pepper and Cayenne). Offered us free icecream cookie sandwiches for finishing the chicken. ;D I didn't take him up on it for calorie reasons, but my step brother said it was amazing (homemade apparently there). Their sides are also amazing. I had flash fried Brussels sprouts with honey and the best tater tots in the history of tater tots. I have no idea what they do to them, but they are incredible. My lips were giant and pink from the spice, I'm thinking about getting ghost pepper just to put on my lips each morning for some awesome plumpness. ;D

I just looked them up on yelp and the pictures look amazing! the breading looks really good! I've always wanted to try Nashville hot chicken, but in upstate NY the closest thing I can get is the KFC version, which actually isn't that bad lol

I've been thinking about making a version of it myself, I'm planning on doing it this sunday actually. to make Nashville hot sauce they take a spicy seasoning and then mix it with fryer oil and toss the chicken in it, but I'm doing a breakfast version so I'm just going to take the seasoning and put it directly on the chicken and then bread it and fry it and put it on a homemade biscuit with some pepper jelly, bacon, cheddar, and I'm thinking a jalapeno honey butter too  >:-)

Last night I made my favorite enchilada style breakfast burrito. 3 egg omelette with chopped onions, 4 slices of bacon, hash browns, Pace Picante sauce, about a cup of homemade pico de gallo, all rolled up in a large flour tortilla.
 
Throw it on a dinner plate, add a handful of tortilla chips next to it, all smothered with Las Palma medium enchilada sauce (including the chips), mass handfuls Monterey Jack cheese, nuke it in the microwave to melt the cheese and cover with a healthy dose of sour cream. Garnished with cilantro. It looked beautiful! I should have taken a picture. Oh well, next time.

I often do this for breakfast but I was in a breakfast burrito kind of mood last night. I can only eat half of this, so I will be having leftovers tonight too. Yummmm!

DOOOOO IT!!!!!!



Anywho, two meals of note! Last night I made possibly the best fajitas I've ever had. Made a custom cajun blackening with cilantro and cumin added, tons of extra spice. Marinated chicken in it and lime. Used fresh local red onion and red bell peppers. I roasted the peppers and grilled the onions, while preparing the chicken on an outdoor griddle. Diced the veggies and chicken and tossed back on. Melted Oaxaca cheese over it right on the griddle. Grilled corn on the cob on the side.

Today I made grilled salmon in a ginger garlic pepper marinade, came out perfect. Served over seasoned jasmine rice. (Sushi su style vinegar with garlic and ginger.)

Tomorrow is Palak Paneer!

Honestly, at this point whenever I get spicy food 99% of places I'm always confused and think they sent me the wrong meal until someone else takes a bite and immediately go "WOW, That's spicy". Even at an Indian place I went to in Savannah and asked for Vindaloo extra spicy, they kept coming to the table asking if I was okay because it was the spiciest thing they've ever made, and I'm just eating it without a second thought, like... "Yeah, I mean, it's good, it's pretty spicy I guess". I have ruined my concept of spicy I've built my tolerance up so high, and brought my step brother and sister along with me. ;D

But then there's Ghost Pepper. Now that I feel. Oh dear lord do I feel it.

I ought to make that.  I'll order that at Arby's.  And Perkins when traveling through Pennsylvania!

I haven't been to an Arby's (and stolen a bottle of Arby's sauce) since forever!

Tonight I'm having open face meatball sandwiches on nice, fresh Italian bread. Mama Mia!

I decided to make a tomato basil base vegetable stew of sorts with four types of sliced fresh peppers, some hot; plus fresh picked squash varieties and a lot of tomatoes.  Added some cooked ground sirloin, as well as some onion.   

We will see how it turns out.  A hodgpodge of sorts that should be relatively healthy and low cost.
 
I am not much of a chef.  I do experiment though, for the fun of it.  Picking organically grown veggies and cooking or eating it within minutes of picking can make for great eats.

Honestly, at this point whenever I get spicy food 99% of places I'm always confused and think they sent me the wrong meal until someone else takes a bite and immediately go "WOW, That's spicy". Even at an Indian place I went to in Savannah and asked for Vindaloo extra spicy, they kept coming to the table asking if I was okay because it was the spiciest thing they've ever made, and I'm just eating it without a second thought, like... "Yeah, I mean, it's good, it's pretty spicy I guess". I have ruined my concept of spicy I've built my tolerance up so high, and brought my step brother and sister along with me. ;D

But then there's Ghost Pepper. Now that I feel. Oh dear lord do I feel it.
Spicy food destroys your taste buds so you can no longer detect the heat. This is fairly common with Mexican food and it's one of the reasons food that served to occasional eaters is much milder than that served to regular eaters. The good news is that it takes around 6-8 weeks for your taste buds to recover IF you avoid spicy food until your sense of taste recovers.

Tonight I'm grilling steaks and the side is grilled zucchini and yellow squash from the garden with some marinara sauce on them.

I'm also grilling some hot hatch peppers from the garden because who needs taste buds when you can have an endorphin rush?  ;D

I went to a friends house for her nearly world famous lasagna. Her partner says she won't tell anyone the secret ingredient. The lasagna hits the table, and  it WAS good. I took a bite and said "This is delicious, do I taste sour cream in the background?" Her eyes opened wide like the cartoons, and her partner exclaimed  "Sour cream? Is that the secret ingredient?"

I might as well have a kid. My brother is just as bad. I swear I think he has some kind of food OCD. Sour cream, cottage cheese and cream cheese are all on his forbidden food list. But he's weird about it. The idea of putting cream cheese on a bagel skeezes him out. But he likes cream cheese frosting and cheese cake. Ricotta cheese skeezes him out but he's fine with it in lasagna.  He likes mayonnaise but can't stand the sight of it. He likes it on his sandwiches but you have to mix some mustard into it to turn it yellow. He drove my dad up the wall with that when he was little because when my dad made him a sandwich he always checked to make sure he had mixed mustard into the mayo. And he won't touch any kind of pasta with white or cream sauce.

First time I made my 5 cheese 4 pepper version (mozzarella, ricotta, provolone, asiago, parmesan - green,red,yellow,and orange) no one noticed that there was no meat in the sauce. Also once had to make spaghetti extra for my nephews (they were under 10 then) because they wouldn't even try it that way.

Is that Tellicherry pepper? Thanks Ellie! I'll look into that and also the Sherpa Pink Himalayan salt. Does the salt require a grinder too? I'm sure the manual pepper grinders aren't very expensive. I don't have room for another electric grinder lol.
Title: Re: What are you having for dinner? 3.0
Post by: Roll on August 12, 2018, 11:46:47 am
Coarse salt does require a grinder to use in place of table salt, but I recommend it. You can get them in refillable grinders pretty easily nowadays. I know TJ Maxx always seems to carry a ton of Himalayan Salt in these tall glass grinders. (Sherpa Pink was just an arbitrary brand, most will be identical.) The telicherry peppers I have never seen in a grinder already, I just refill the one I have with the bulk bag I got from amazon I have yet to need to replace for 10 bucks. (Note that telicherry is just regular black pepper that was the larger, more matured part of the crop. It changes the taste slightly.)

If anyone is interested in how incredible the salt variety is out there, I highly recommend buying one of the sets like the Trade Joe's "Salts of the Earth" set of 7. Himalayan is the most generic of them. Hawaiian Black Salt is fascinating but I have no idea how to use it (almost sulfuric taste, but not a bad one). I think Inca Sun Salt is the best all around flavor.

Strawberries and cream (not leftovers but they are nice).

Drink is juice of a lemon with Ice and water.

Fridge looks empty now apart from half used sauces. Freezer is full of portions of stuff cooked over the last month so I will need to empty those over the coming weeks I think. De-frost needed..

What kind of meat do you use for the bangers?
Also, I never had chocolate peanut butter pie.  Sounds interesting.


Chrissy

I used pork sausage.

I usually make it with onion gravy too. I make apple gravy for pork roast and pork chops but since I used fresh pork sausages I decided to try making apple gravy with it. It was really good and everyone liked it. This is my grandma's recipie for apple gravy.

2 tbsp of butter.
2 tbsp of flour.
1 small onion sliced thin.
2 cloves of garlic.
1 cup of apple cider.
2 cups of chicken stock.

Melt the butter and cook the onion and garlic until the onions start to brown. Whisk in the flour and cook it 2-3 minutes. Whisk in the cider and bring it to a boil. Add the chicken stock and bring it to a simmer and lower the heat to medium low. Simmer 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally until it thickens.

Chocolate peanut butter pie.

25 Oreo cookies.
4 reesses peanut butter cups.
6 tbsp of melted butter.
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk, divided.
4 ounces of semi sweet baking chocolate.
3 tsp vanilla extract divided.
1/2 cup peanut butter,
3 cups heavy whipping cream.
4 tbsp powdered sugar.

Crush Oreo cookies in the food processor.  Mix with the butter and press it into a 9 inch pie plate. Chill it while you make the other stuff. Melt the chocolate and stir in 1/2 of the can of sweetened condensed milk and 1 tsp of vanilla. Stir this occasionally so it doesn't turn to fudge. In another bowl stir the rest of the condensed milk into the peanut butter with 1 tsp of vanilla until smooth. Whip the cream with the powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Gently fold 1 cup of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Spread in the bottom of the Oreo crust. Gently fold 1 cup of whipped cream into the chocolate mixture and spread it onto the peanut butter layer. Spread the rest of the whipped cream over the top.  Chop up the peanut butter cups and sprinkle on top. Chill at least 4 hours.

Gosh that sounds nice! I've done something similar but with salted caramel layered with chocolate ganache all on top of a layer of crushed gingernuts.

Can of hot chicken curry (from Aldi) and half a boiled cauliflower instead of rice, its quick and easy and as long as I don't eat canned junk like this too often all will be well. It does taste reasonable though.

Yuk tasted horrible until a teaspoon of chilli, a teaspoon of garlic powder and a tablespoon of butter were added, then it was very palatable. Chicken was compressed chicken bits though, so not restaurant standard. 28 carbs though so Im  happy with that.

(Toffee ice-cream and cream for afters... just emptying freezer honestly.... Feel fat now..)

Well,,, Sometimes our experiments don't always go as planned  ::). It started out as just a Top Ramen Chicken flavor dinner night. But,,, I had some leftover spaghetti sauce with Italian sausage in the fridge that I wanted to use up. First off, I should have left out the seasoning packet, but as it was supposed to just be a Top Ramen night, the packet ended up in the mix. Second, there was a little too mush leftover spaghetti sauce. It wasn't all that bad though, once I added mass quantities of Tapatio hot sauce and Parmesan cheese. I could only eat half of it so, I'm having the same leftovers tonight.

Bon Appetit!

Fried Ramen noodles can be tasty, esp. with the right sauce (experiment until you find a sauce you like, such as a Worchestershire sauce.)  Soy sauce does NOT seem to be the right sauce to use, but you might like it that way. 

I do not use the flavor packet when first boiling, then frying, but that is up to you.
Add onions, eggs, or whatever you like as you fry, using a light oil in the bottom of the frying pan. Sometimes you can add sauce while frying, but you can wait to add it after frying.

Serve with or without rice.

Thanks Chrissy! That's a good idea. I still have a few packages of Ramen noodle left. I'll try that. I also got a nice idea from my Electrolysis for grilling vegetables. I usually steam them when I make rice.

Last night I made this cabbage and meat casserole that my dad totally loves. The name of it is Lihakaalilaatikko. No I didn't fall asleep on my keyboard. It's a Finnish dish. Somehow my grandma started making it when my dad was little and it's one of his favorites. Finnish is not one of the languages my dad speaks but he can pronounce this and spell it. And I thought German was a weird language. Here's an idea, just drop these weird foreign names for these dishes and rename them something normal. Cabbage casserole works just fine for me. Lihakaalilaatikko. Give me a break!

Yeah, Finnish is a language all its own - So, did you use a green or red cabbage and what kind of meat? Care to share the recipe?

I used green cabbage and ground veal.

1 pound ground veal, beef or lamb.
1 small head of cabbage.
Half a white onion.
2 eggs.
2 tbsp dark molasses.
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg.
1/4 teaspoon allspice.
2 tsp salt.
1/2 tsp white pepper.
1 cup bread crumbs.
3-4 tbsp butter.
1/2 cup heavy cream.
Grated parmesan.

Chop and then boil the cabbage until it's tender but still has a little bite to it. Cook the onions in the butter until soft. Add the drained cabbage, spices and molasses. Stir together well. In a bowl mix the veal, eggs, bread crumbs and cream together. In a casserole dish make a layer of cabbage and top with the meat mixture. Keep layering and finish with a cabbage layer. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake at 350 for one hour. Let it sit 5 minutes before serving it. My dad likes it with lingonberry preserves on the side.

Ah there are so many different mustards, but the mustard that's best is the one you enjoy

I like different types of mustard depending on what I am eating, For fries and such I like plain old American French's mustard, for main dishes I may go for a horseradish or honey mustard depending on my mood and taste at the time

I don't care where it's made, I'll leave that to the poms - I'll get what tastes good to me and up theirs if anyone turns their nose up to it

It's not like anyone is enhancing my life with any of their braggerting or bigotry

I agree, and I was just differentiating variations on the theme of yellow mustard as subsequent posts have highlighted as well. But its not like soccer, as I suppose after you grow up you play football..... (waiting for comments)..

Bought more courgettes for dinner tonight or tomorrow. Any ideas on what to cook using 2 aubergines as I bought them as well today - its cooking for one though mind..?

I like plain old yellow mustard too as does everyone else at my house. I did try buying some gourmet stone ground mustard once. I didn't really care much for it. And Tyler who is Mr. Food OCD asked why the mustard was all grainy and crunchy and said it was nasty. Lol

They had a 10oz Ribeye on sale, so I cut in half and had grilled Ribeye two nights in a row.  I marinated it in a teriyaki sauce with microplaned fresh garlic.  There is also a market that sells a lot of Porterhouse, so I'll cherry pick steaks with lot of tenderloin to divide up into two steaks.

I fried them in butter with a little bacon grease. You can use any type of corn but I think it tastes best if you use fresh corn you cut off the cob. I also fry like a half cup of diced onions in with it.

I blew it for last nights pizza dinner! I forgot to get more cheese so I will have to do the DiGiorno some other night. So, I did the brown rice and steamed veggies again last night. Isn't it ironic, we use a grocery list to remember to buy everything we need but the list isn't worth much if we forget to write things down  ???.

I am trying to lower my bad cholesterol and yet again I ate a Ribeye steak and potatoes. The steak was huge and I had to take a nap. Just salt, pepper and medium rare.

I added some extra heat with Tapatio hot sauce. A hand full of Jack cheese. And we can't forget, a hand full of Fritos corn chips. Warm it up on the stove and,

I am going to have some Jack Daniel’s BBQ pork ribs.
These come fully cooked in their whiskey BBQ sauce and are delicious.
An ample amount of sauce comes with each packet of about six ribs.
Has Jack Daniel’s Old Number 7 BBQ sauce.

Had some yesterday too, these are so good.
Sometimes you can buy them in a collector pail (4 pounds of ribs) that you can reuse for something, other times in a standard package.

 My sister asked me to cook sweet & sour pork and pork fried rice. To prep and cook both dishes takes me several hours. I start this morning by cooking the rice so it cold be ready to use this evening. Then it was cutting up the meat for both and letting the prok for the sweet and sour marinate while cutting up all the veggies for both dishes. Followed by getting the eggs precooked and ready to use. When our guests arrived ( one of Karen's son, wife and her grandson ) i began to cook and assemble the various components so they were both done at the same time. Everyone said it was delicious!

Was going to be Genovese sponge but I used the wrong flour, the whipped cream returned to liquid and it was a disaster.. Trying to do this for a charity bake at work on Thursday, so I can have a couple of more attempts before then.

It was my first 'from basics' cake attempt though and I absolutely loved doing it.

Its in the bin now but here is a pic of the sponges I made after they returned from a balloon like state (i.e did a good impression of a collapsing star and left a black hole or N-Star in my cake making expectations tonight.. lol).
Tasted ok though and I did swallow it then binned the rest to save humanity from a deadful fate; Katies cake catastrophies...

I had a nice steak and veggies today.

In Hawaii, there is a “good tasting fish” named Ono.  It is also called Wahoo. Try it sometime, as well as Walleye.  Pan fried Walleye can be very tasty.  You can get it from fresh water lakes.

@Laurie
Dear Laurie:

Wow, that sounds delicious. I love making lots of different bean dishes... 
I usually prefer the smaller white beans and/or navy beans....   I usually also make large batches of those kinds of things, the left-overs are just as good or even better the next day.

The rule of heating up leftover bean dishes is "beans boiled is beans spoiled"  .... the beans will just turn to mush if boiled and over-heated.

Where is the picture???

Have a safe trip when going to see @Michelle_P .....   perhaps you could make a big pot of beans while your are visiting?

Hugs,
Danielle

Rib eye steak and veggies.

@ChrissyRyan
Nothing better than a good and tender Rib-eye steak...medium-rare.  I always love lots of veggies with my dinners.... a big green salad filled with all kinds of various things like tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, olives, green onions, etc. ... or perhaps steam some broccoli or cauliflower. .... and of course a baked potato is perfect for the occasion.  Also with most steak dinners that I prepare I usually cook up some onions and mushrooms to top it all off.

OK now, I am getting hungry just talking about this.....

Danielle

No time for pics but Lamb and figs , 2lb lamb cubed 1lb figs trimmed  2 cups beef stock 5 garlic cloves chopped and 3 tbl spoons lemon juice in the slow cooker for 4hrs on low, add 1/4 cup olive and 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar with 1/4 cup chopped herbs. Don't think it needs as much balsamic as it was a bit "sour" . serve over rice . Nice warming dish though.Had some yogurt that needed using up so put the rest of figs in as they started to go overripe.

Chuckeye steak is almost as good as Ribeye steak.
Chuckeye comes from the rib section, not the chuck section.
It comes from the rib adjacent to where the Ribeyes start.
Chuckeye steaks are not always at the meat counter as there are fewer available from each animal.  They are sold for a few dollars less a pound than Ribeyes.  Try one sometime!

I made some gyros without the pita bread.  Bought meat from a Greek restaurant’s spinning grill, and used Tzatziki sauce and sliced onions and cut tomatoes.  I made this without the pita bread to avoid the calories, so I guess this is a gyro platter of sorts.

Also made more tomato soup, adding about ten fresh cut tomatoes, and basil.  The tomatoes “melted” in your mouth.  So yummy!

Chuckeye steak is almost as good as Ribeye steak.
Chuckeye comes from the rib section, not the chuck section.
It comes from the rib adjacent to where the Ribeyes start.
Chuckeye steaks are not always at the meat counter as there are fewer available from each animal.  They are sold for a few dollars less a pound than Ribeyes.  Try one sometime!

Chrissy

good tip.

Last week at the store they had Angus New York strips on sale. Super yum. They took longer to cook. I think the meat was denser. This is why my cholesterol is slightly high. My steak addiction.

I introduced Megan to an American classic, Shake & Bake pork chops. Since they don't have S&B here in the UK, I had to spin the coating up from scratch. Served it with my nearly world famous mashed potatoes and some sliced carrots.

Hmm, I think they did but they made the food glow with an eerie aura..... after all I think Tesco's sell it sometimes

70s/80s food is so fun to look at …

Absolutely... It involved a huge number of different and rare herbs and spices,  ground and prepared with skill and experience... Which I threw in the bin and replaced with a jar of paste from Sainsburys and a can of coconut milk.

I did marinade the beef cubes (left over from a Sunday roast) in the paste for 24hrs before cooking and adding the coconut milk.

Stuffed green peppers sounded good, so they are in the slow cooker.
I am not a great cook.  These were store bought and actually they could have been simply microwaved or stuck in the oven.  But, I think that they will turn out better this way.

A spinach salad is the first course.

Was for 8 chops so adjusted a bit, fry onion in pan add marinated chops that have been sat in yogurt with a bit of chilli powder , ground ginger, garlic granules and black pepper and salt cover and cook slow till dry. Made mash spuds and carrots with cauliflower. Chops were tender and sauce tasty.

@Donica
Dear Donica:
What you described sounds like what I do.... doctor up my foods with extra calories, fats and carbs ..... it brings comfort for a short time... that is why it is called comfort food.

Sometimes I get in the mood to have Oreos....  So I will open up a package and just eat 2 cookies, while thinking that I have to be careful about eating too much....   then about an hour later, heck with it, I just might finish of the entire package of cookies, ....   and then for the next week I end up starving for days and working out at the gym to compensate for my bad behavior!!!!!

Thanks for sharing, you brought a smile to my face.
Hugs,
Danielle

Devlyn and I had pepperoni pizzas made with 'lo-dough' - an almost zero-carb alternative to a bread base. They came out pretty good, and got the Devlyn seal of approval. (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20181029/5cc4e997e5a4403b410b228e59345106.jpg)

Did you use almond flour or cauliflower as one of the main ingredients for the low carb dough, or something else?

Just little chunks of swiss cheese, plus grapes and pineapple chunks.
Might eat some cantaloupe too.

Not very exciting, but, this does taste good.

I know this is not a lunch thread but I will post this exception!  I often eat tofu for lunch, or as a soup side, as I like it.  It absorbs sauces and soup well, which is good, as it is bland plain just out of the container.  Try it someday if you have not!

Tofu or miso soup is worth a try as well as noodle soups with tofu...

Your chicken sounds good!

I really enjoy eating tofu, which is made with soybeans.  I buy it at regular grocery stores, sometimes it is in the organic section, in tubs that are about three to four inches cubed.  I eat about five of those big pieces a week.  They are sold in various firmness levels. 

Tofu absorbs the flavors of what it is cooked in.  I do not eat it plain.

It is a low calorie food.  Tofu, or soy bean curd, is a good protein.  I eat organic tofu, unless I am at a restaurant and I have no idea if it is organic or not.

Chili con carne.  I just got my annual order of 6 pounds (~3kg) of fresh red and green chili powder from New Mexico.  It's so much tastier than the stuff from the store.

And yes, my chili contains about a cup of chili powder because I have a serious problem.  ;D

I do, but since I'm the only one who likes it that hot in the house I use mild chili powder.  It ends up being very mild in the heat department with a great red and green pepper flavor combination.

I enjoy chili but it seems to help put on weight for me.
You see, I have to make a large pot of it at a time it seems, then because it usually tastes pretty good, I eat too much of it too soon.  I do freeze some but then I find myself just pulling it out of the freezer and sooner, not later, it ends up in my tummy. 

Sound like I need more self control!  Ice cream has a similar effect on me.

So are you thinking that mtf HRT has given you or intensified cravings for some foods?

Well steak is on sale so I will be eating another medium rare one tonight, a New York Strip.
Add to that sweet peas, corn, and a salad with Russian dressing.  Yum.

Still craving cinnamon rolls, snickerdoodles, oatmeal raisin cookies, and ice cream but I will skip that (easy to do as I have none of it!), as the blouse I bought yesterday is slightly tight at the bustline.  Busting out, even at the bustline, for a button-up top is not a good thing.  I probably will return it, oh fooey, as it was bought at a good price.

Enjoy your suppers.  Or are they dinners?   Whatever!   :)

@ChrissyRyan
Dear Chrissy:
Soup or a nice stew... and toast are always a favorite go to and easy to fix meal for lunch or dinner.    Nothing better than coming home after a day out in the cold and at work to step into the house and smell good things....

Before I left for work today I have my slow cooker at home working on a "campfire"  soup with lots of veggies.

My "campfire" soup has a generous amount of browned lean ground beef chunks, chopped onions, barley, green beans, mushrooms, corn, peas carrots and whatever else I can find in my refridgerator..... I make it in a slightly thickened beef broth base.
 
This is always a favorite when out camping so hence the name.
I always make more than I can eat so the leftovers will come with me to work for a few days....

Your campfire soup sounds good, I have made similar but not with added barley. 
I think I may just have a light breakfast or just lunchtime tofu, then skip an evening meal.
Holiday season has a lot of good eats and I want no weight gain creeping up on me.

In my quest to make some room in freezer I found some burgers that (barbeque never happened) have been in there for 3 months. So fried some onions, chestnut mushrooms, added chopped up burgers , some Worcester sauce and a beef stock cube and frozen peas. Put it in a dish and covered with ready to roll short pastry. Forgot to say burgers had cheese in them so made the gravy thick and tasty. Made an apple pie for afters with left over pastry and a Bakewell tart.

Turkey!

Post by: ChrissyRyan on November 24, 2018, 07:01:44 am
Well I will probably eat more turkey.  Tofu for lunch, perhaps in a wide noodle soup.

Many times some foods seem to taste really good as leftovers.
Turkey and fixings, meatloaf, chili, stews, and occasionally, some, but not all, pizzas.
That list could be easily extended of course.

I think that french fries are not in the list of best foods that taste good as leftovers.  Make a new batch!

Dear Jess:
Well, you and I must be on the very same wavelength.  I was fortunate enough to bring back home with me some leftover turkey....  and also some of my fresh baked dinner rolls that I had brought....
   
... so I  made a turkey soup also... and as you did, I put in carrots, celery, onions and whatever else I found in the refrigerator.  I prefer my soups to be thickened a little.... just the way I like it... and it is so very good, especially on a cold night... and I have more left in the crock pot for later.

I enjoyed your soup picture.
Thanks for posting and sharing.
Hugs,
Danielle

Dear Chrissy:
I hear you but there are lots of tasty things to do with leftover turkey....  I made some Turkey Soup on Friday, so very good on a cold day or cold night.  Another thing I make with left over turkey is a "Turkey Melt"  ...on bread lay out some thin turkey slices, then tomato slices and finally topped with cheddar cheese and put in the oven on broil until the cheese is melted.........  so very good too!!!

Ahh, yes, I have some of my leftover fresh baked dinner rolls... so good any way you can eat them... mini turkey sandwiches, or just warmed up and spread some butter and my homemade raspberry jam on them.
mmm, mmm, good !

Danielle, I shred potatoes into mine as it cooks to thicken it up and give it a creamy texture.
And barley always finds it’s way in my soups...love it!

I do like those various ways to eat turkey.  Yummy.

I think though that I have gobbled-up enough of that good tasting turkey for the time being and will take a short pause from it.

Ah yes.  The rolls.  They can be soooooo good also!

Dear Chrissy:
Aweee... a mini-repeat of Thanksgiving dinner.   
I just knew that you could not resist revisiting Turkey again.   

I do that as well for the big full-meal-deals at my Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter dinners.   
The leftovers taste just as good as when they were first served.... 
....and if not, just add more copious amounts of GRAVY !!!

@davina61
Dear Davina:
Thank you for tip about Jalfrezi ...  your spelling was very close to being correct.   
For others that may not know about Jalfrezi, here is some information about it.

                  Jalfrezi is a curry dish originating in the Indian subcontinent.   
                  It consists of a main ingredient such as meat, fish, paneer (a kind of cheese)
                  or vegetables, stir-fried and served in a thick spicy sauce
                  that usually includes green chilli peppers

Again, thank you for posting your valuable thoughts...  I can always count on you for food preparation tips, you demonstrate your expertise in that subject in many of your postings on your thread and around the forums.

Hugs,
Danielle

The one I use is a dryish sauce with red bell pepper, beans and meat added at end to heat through. With a bit of prep only takes 15mins to cook. Not much use posting recipe as doubt any one will have ingredients like coriander seeds and cumin seeds that need to be ground in mortis . Will be making one tomorrow as have a ready cooked chicken that needs using by tomorrow , the rest is going in slow cooker.

I really enjoy eating various seeds and I use a lot on sandwiches and other foods.
In season I also enjoy fresh fennel, when out of season, the fennel seeds for sure.
These make many foods simply taste better, at least to me.   :)

I left early yesterday afternoon from my office today to go home to make dinner for 3 of my Book Club gal friends.   
It is a simple dinner to prepare, one of my favorite "One-Pot" meals that is great on a cold night.

All in on big pot...  Kielbasa and lots of veggies... carrots, onions, peppers, red potoatoes, cabbage, celery... and sometimes whatever else I can find in my refrigerator.   In the pot is a steamer tray... steam and cook fairly slowly for 40 minutes or so and presto... a wonderfully satisfying meal.

So very tasty, healthy veggies, and easy to fix.
After dinner we had some brief discussions about what books that we want to read around Christmas time.

Besides tasting good, this meal’s ingredients have a lot of eye appeal as they are colorful, as can be seen on the board, and as seen in the cooking pot, as well as their presentation on the meal plate.  Nicely done Danielle.

@Colleen_definitely
Dear Colleen:
I know, I know...
Spaghetti Squash is supposed to be better and healthier for us with less carbs and all of that, however for me nothing beats "real pasta" ... my favorite type of spaghetti is Angel Hair  ... the really thin, thin, thin version of Spaghetti.   ... and of course lots and lots of fairly thick sauce made with garlic, sliced mushrooms, diced onions, diced bell peppers, chunks of diced tomatoes... and must have chunks of ground beef, or better yet, MeatBalls... and a good alternative to the ground beef or Meat Balls are Italian Link Sausages and when the Spaghetti and Sauce is served, topped with lots fresh grated Parmesan Cheese.
I am getting hungry just talking about this.

In the past and when I have time I have made my own pasta... perhaps I will do that again soon and provide photos.

Oh I am absolutely with you on the pasta thing.  I LOVE pasta, LOOOOOOOVE it.  Thick sauces, thin sauces, cream or tomato based, mixes of both, or even just butter, garlic, and parmesan.  I make a pretty good lasagna as well.  In any case these creations usually include an amount of garlic that borders on completely insane.  Last night's sauce and bread had five heads of roasted garlic and plenty of powder and crushed garlic thrown in.  (I really ought to visit the Stinking Rose restaurant.)

While I enjoy the squash it is definitely not a complete replacement for the real deal.  But alas, it is a lower calorie substitute for me now due to previous excesses.

Making pasta is a bit laborious but fun.  I usually end up making thicker spaetzle style noodles due to the simplicity.  My girlfriend's mom gave us one of those little pasta roller machines and I've been meaning to try it out but life has been a bit hectic as of late.  Since I'm taking December off for FFS and BA I'll make a point to play with it once I've healed up enough from surgery.

Yep, I have one of the crank ones.  It's much easier to prepare than a spaghetti squash.  If you overcook a spaghetti squash it just turns to mush.

You aren't limited to zucchini either, I've used yellow squash and even butternut squash with mine with great results.

Lots of tomato goodness, included diced tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, diced onions, diced green peppers, small homemade meatballs, garlic and other spices.
Then when I got home from work I cooked the Angel Hair pasta (my absolute favorite spaghetti pasta) and then I made a small green salad... and presto a wonderful dinner and plenty enough that I took some to work today for my lunch.

Made a bolognas last night with mince beef and took some out before adding mushrooms ,toms and yellow pepper . Put the other into a dish with peas to make a shepherds pie ,just need to return to pan with grated carrot and then mash spuds on top and brown under grill or in oven. That will be 4 good meals from 1 pack of mince (400 grams) as cutting back on food in a loosing fight with my waist. Also made aubergine rice and that will be lunch for next few days.

I like bowtie pasta.  Sometimes it is called Farfalle pasta.
Great with Alfredo sauce, chicken, mushrooms, and broccoli.

It is also very good using Carribbean jerk flavored chicken, for a slightly different taste!

I probably will not be making this tonight though.

Tonight I had deep fried scallops. 

Last night I had spaghetti and meatballs.  I realized that while the meatballs are OK, I should really be able to do a lot better, so I'm going to try some different recipes. So, along with the scallops I bought some Italian sausage to add to the ground beef for meatballs.

@Maid Marion
Italian sausage, either ground to make meatballs or the "big" link sausages are always a great choice to go in the pasta sauce.   
I make meatballs with a 50/50 mix of ground beef and ground Italian Sausage along with various spices like garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.   Sometimes I will skip the meatballs and just use the large Italian Sausage Links cooked "whole" in with the sauce. 
The Italian Sausage is the key element...

Thanks for sharing and posting.

Danielle

After raking leaves in freezing weather for four hours I had deep fried scallops and chocolate while cooking the spaghetti and meatballs.  A really decadent way to eat chocolate is to warm it up using the exhaust vent of the oven.

Just in case, I dug out a never used Rival meat grinder out of the basement and prepped it for use.  Turns out I just needed to cut the casing of a large sausage link and mix the meat with the ground beef. Tossed in Italian breadcrumbs and an egg to hold it all together.  Don't remember if I added any salt. Mixed it up an left it in the refrigerator for a few hours, then added chopped onions. Scooped it into a pan with an ice cream scoop and baked it for 15 minutes.  Then I simmered it in jar pasta sauce while cooking the pasta.

Turned out great!  Tasted like I expect spaghetti meatballs to taste.  And I have leftovers for tomorrow.  ;D

@ChrissyRyan
Dear Chrissy:
Yes, IKEA is a Swedish owned company with stores around the world, the restaurants inside their stores serve classic Swedish foods such as Swedish Meatballs....   VERY VERY GOOD.   

Italian meatballs that most of us are more familiar with sometimes include grated parmesan, as well as garlic, dried oregano and are usually served in a , often chunky tomato or marinara sauce.

Swedish meatballs traditionally smaller than Italian Meatballs and use spices like allspice, nutmeg, white pepper, and sometimes ground ginger as flavoring.... and are cooked in and served in a lighter color rich, roux gravy made with beef broth and sour cream.

You can look up recipes for Swedish Meatballs versus Italian Meatballs and you will see the difference.   I like both types of Meatballs but generally the Italian Meatballs go with the meals that I make most often.

Hugs,
Danielle

After a night in fridge , adding water and heating in pan the railway curry was nice. The dried red chillies got stronger as they do, made Gram flour pancakes to go with it . Nice and spongy and with an eggy taste  but it was only flour, water with onion, green chilli , grated ginger and a 1/4 spoon of ground cumin.

Tacos can be very tasty. 

Is it true that authentic Mexican restaurant corn tortilla tacos, say those that are made with asada (beef steak), have no cheese added on top of the meat?  Instead, limes, seasoned onions, and radishes are provided on the side.  Onions and cilantro may be in the taco also.

When I lived in San Diego I would visit friends in Mexico fairly regularly

Some of the taco stands would have a few condiments but mostly the tacos were pretty simple but tasty

There were also nice restaurants where you could get fancier dinners, that's when they'd start adding cheese to some things and pretty much everything comes with a side of frijoles

My favorite was to drive to the coast and get fish tacos and ceviche

As you hinted, the "Americanized" Mexican food that we get here is not quite like the genuine foods that one would get in Mexico.   Same thing regarding Italian Food in the USA...  much different than the original article.

Usually simpler and less ingredients... but the original genuine article is very, very good.

Megan and I are going to have sauerbraten for Christmas, we started pickling it today. We picked up a silverside roast (bottom round or rump roast for my US friends), and it's in a Ziploc bag with half a bottle of cider vinegar, about 3/4 of a bottle of red wine, about 15 crushed juniper berries, three bay leaves, sugar, salt, dry mustard, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, sage, thyme, garlic, onion, carrots, and celery. We'll be turning it repeatedly until Christmas morning, when we'll sear it, braise it in the marinade for several hours, then strain and thicken the liquid with ginger snaps to make a sauce for the sliced beef. We'll be serving it with boiled potatoes and Brussel sprouts.

It is hard to avoid putting on some weight during late November through New Year’s Day.

Not sure yet, but I do plan to not eat much this weekend.

A big, thick, pan fried piece of good fish sounds good though.

Hmmm, some big broiled scallops also sounds tempting.  I do not care for those little scallops.
The big ones I do like.  Perhaps I will go look up the calorie count on scallops.   :)

Yesterday I did not eat much except for tofu at lunch and some pretty big chilled shrimp with a strong horseradish cocktail sauce.  No scallops!

Today I had my tofu for lunch and some fruit and a few more of those large shrimp and sauce for dinner.

I figure if I do not gain weight this month, that is great, and I have actually dropped a few pounds.

We will see what the coming week brings.  Friends may have cookies, fudge, brownies, cinnamon buns, holiday cupcakes, peanut brittle, egg nog, zucchini bread, pumpkin bread, spice cake, and so on.  It is a time to skimp on kale and cucumbers, that’s for sure.

Not sure if I will be in intake control mode or will simply enjoy those goodies, plus ham and whatever else is there to feast upon.  I can say that I have been in “damage control” mode the last few days knowing what’s coming, eating less than usual.  I am hoping that there will be some cheescake with cherries on top!

Prime Rib, macaroni salad, apple salad, mashed potatoes. Remember it is not what you eat, but portion size that matters.
4. oz. 410 calories, Mac Salad 8 oz 373 calories,   Apple salad w/Cool whip  230,  mashed potatoes & gravy 260 calories
So eat that sliver of pie, eat a cookie. No need to quit eating what you enjoy. I have lost 100 lbs over three years by not over eating.   Dinner alone 1273 calories. You still have 800 calories for cookies and pie. Granted you won't lose weight but you won't gain any either.

Yes!  It’s an interesting ingredient.  Very little flavor on it’s own, but it soaks up and holds flavors.  I do things like soak in in a ‘marinade’ of a flavor I might want, such as ginger or a hot spice, for a few minutes, stir-fry it, and toss the result into a dish I’m making as a way to introduce the ‘marinade’ flavor.

Ribeye is a good steak.  Dietary fat a actually may not be bad at all, except in excess.
Ribeye is quite fatty, helping to make it tasty, but you can slice a lot of it off as you eat it.

I don't know whether he was joking about the koala but I'm sure that he's kidding about the Vegemite.  Nobody could eat that.  Koalas do seem to appear on the menu in China, though:

Braised Koala (https://www.smh.com.au/environment/conservation/koala-for-braising-gets-traveller-stewing-20111031-1mroe.html)

I suspect that if someone orderered the koala, it would be taken away for "butchering"  and some other kind of meat would be served to the customer.  Why kill a valuable live koala when it could be displayed over and over again?  I HOPE that that is what would happen.  I did see something similar on a street stall in Yorkshire, England.  Customers had the choice of burgers made of beef, kangaroo or springbok (a Southern African antelope).  I asked for a springbok burger.  The one I was given  just happened to be one of the two identical burgers that were being grilled at the time.  I have no doubt that if I had asked for kangaroo, he would have given me the same burger.

Some menus are more believable than that of the Yorkshire street stall and I must admit that if I saw a real koala burger on offer, I would eat it.  I prefer watching live wildlife but when I can't, eating it is as close to nature as I can get.  From reliable sources, I have eaten elephant, giraffe, crocodile, Cape buffalo, ostrich, guinea fowl, kudu, blesbok, springbok, impala, kangaroo, wild boar, red deer, pheasant and swordfish.

If your boyfriend is missing koala, you might get this stuff for him if it becomes available again:

Canned Koala Meat (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Canned-Koala-Meat-Australian-grams/dp/B015JHUKQM) .

If he doesn't eat it, you could at least add another koala to your plush toy collection.  If you  look at the picture with the can's contents list, you will see that the ingredients include "cuteness 100%".

There is a recipie for turtle soup in one of the vintage cookbooks my dad gave me from one of his treasure hunts in a used bookstore. I have never eaten turtle and I wouldn't. Poor turtles! I could also never cook a live lobster! That is just awful! I know some people kill the lobster before putting in the water but that's just as bad! I couldn't kill an animal. The most "exotic" food I have eaten is horse. I had no idea it was horse though until after I ate it. When we were in France we went to a restaurant and the menus were all in French. My grandparents taught my dad French so he can read it and speak it. I told him to find something for me and he got me a horse steak! He thought it was quite funny. God, dad humor is so NOT funny! Especially my dad's. He almost ordered pigeon for Tyler but thought that might be going too far since Tyler is Mr. OCD weirdo over food. OMG, pigeon!  They actually eat pigeon!  A pigeon is like a flying rat! Nasty!

Has anyone here eaten turtle?  I have had frog legs, but not turtle.
I have heard of turtle soup. 

Then there are chocolates called turtles, those were good.

In the cooking topic, there are topics for most liked and most hated foods.
Some of you may wish to take a visit if you have not.

Never had turtle, but my understanding is that there are seven kinds of meat on a turtle.

"A large snapping turtle is said to contain seven distinct types of meat, each reminiscent of pork, chicken, beef, shrimp, veal, fish or goat."

We had chili cheese dogs with mustard and sour cream, and made nachos with the rest of the chili. We're eating American style tonight!

Oh, and if you want to wig out your guests, you can make a "faux turtle", the recipe uses stuffing and a flank steak.... yes, I did this to my friends, their daughter fell for it hook, line, and sinker, and refused to eat it until we showed her the recipe, the box of stuffing, and the package that the flank steak came in!  >:-)

Last night I made Sourbraten. I actually started it Tuesday. It has to marinate for at least 4 days. I was actually planning to have it tonight but my dad and brother were getting antsy for me to cook it. Lol.   I served it with Spätzle which is one of my dad's favorites.

Oh I love Spätzle and it's so easy to make and mine always disappears if I bring some to a potluck get together  ;D

Friday I made a fun taco bowl thingy by putting a large flour tortilla in an oiled med. pan so it makes a seashell shaped bowl and baking it in the oven while I get all the other ingredients together  ;D

Ate the leftover taco mix last night

Stuffed bell peppers is one of my most favorite meals along with similar food like meatloaf, meatballs, etc.

Indeed they are a complete set. I'll take some pictures when I get home of my cabinets... I have serving bowls, plates, platters, etc. I love the design.

And I also love stuffed bell peppers. I had some friends over and one of them doesn't like classic stuffed peppers. He says it tastes too much like meat loaf which he doesn't like. So, I came up with a Mexican version on the fly. They all enjoyed them.

I don't like the classic stuffed peppers because the peppers are too soft. My friend makes them by cooking the filling, then scooping the filling into a cored pepper, and giving them four minutes in the microwave. The pepper stays firm and crunchy.  :)

Well, Devlynn, if I ever make you stuffed peppers be sure to keep yours crunchy. Just a few minutes in the grill should do the trick. I usually char them on each side but for you I'll make an exception!

They're pretty much whatever you like on a cheeseburger but you add grilled or sauteed pineapple  ;D

For this round I placed some hamburger in an olive oil coated 5"x5" square tupperware container to form a 1/4" patty using a masher and set aside, then took four King's Hawaiian sweet bread rolls, sliced in half and toasted in a non stick fry pan with olive oil and butter (https://tse2.mm.bing.net/th?id=OIP.RWPIUIPYTuCuQ8tKIr_pJwHaHa&pid=15.1&P=0&w=300&h=300)

Then while grilling the burger and a slice of pineapple on my cast iron grill pan I added my condiments to the rolls, for these I used mayo, mustard, onion, tomato, pickles and shredded cabbage then began to stack it with a slice of gouda, the burger, havarti, pineapple another havarti and topped it with sauteed mushrooms and the top half of the bun

Smashed it down a bit and cut into 4 mini burgers

  I would like to say I made Cubed Pork with Potatoes, Yogurt, and Tamarind (Coorgh-Style Pork Curry) tonight. Did you notice the "would like to say" part? I suppose I can truthfully say I cooked a meal that was "inspired" by a recipe for Cubed Pork with Potatoes, Yogurt, and Tamarind (Coorgh-Style Pork Curry). I would also have to say it wasn't anything like said dish. What I cooked was another one of a kind, never to be duplicated Laurie meals loosely based on that dish though it looked (and I am sure tasted) nothing like it was supposed to. It could be because I didn't have all the ingredients and that I added a few of my own ingredients and wound up with curdled yogurt in the finished product.
  The surprising part was that it actually tasted good! Even my sister said it had good flavor though it was a bit spicy for her. As for myself I like the way it turned out. I finished the leftovers off. (Got rid of the evidence)

 Anyway here is what it looked like... (the yellow hue is my lousy phone camera)

I kept it simple. Sauteed chopped white onion in a mix of sesame and vegetable oil, tossed pieces of extra firm tofu in after the onions started to soften a little, then the mushrooms. Added sushi rice, seasoned with some soy sauce, chili garlic paste (huy Fong brand in my case) and then cracked an egg in and mixed thoroughly in the work.  It was good but a bit more in the way of veggies would have made it better.

I sauteed some chicken thigh meat with onions, garlic, basil, mushrooms, and bell peppers.  I then tossed in a can of diced tomatoes and cooked it down a tad, then tossed some rotini pasta into the whole mess.  It came out pretty nice.

  Tonight I made roasted split Cornish hen that I coated with salt, pepper, basil, and thyme in oil. It was cooked covered with foil for 35 minutes. Then the foil was removed and glazed with equal parts or fresh squeezed orange juice and honey. Finished cooking for another 30 minutes  uncovered. I accompanied it with fried larger diced taters, onions. bacon pieces and small diced rainbow peppers. The designated veggie was butter steamed broccoli.

Laurie if you cant get Tamarind use lemon juice to give the dish that sour taste. Made a chicken and leak pie , had some cooked chicken thighs to use so chopped them up and fried them a bit. took them out the pan and fried sliced leek then added some water and carrot, when soft add chicken stock and reduce . put in chicken and stir in soft cheese. pastry top and cook 1/2 hr . Had some pastry left and did a pasty with chicken , potato ,sweet potato and pea filling to take to work tomorrow.

I made pizzas last night.  The dough got to rise for too long, and the crusts turned out thinner and drier than they should have. (Nobody here wanted cracker crusts!)

I’ll go for a nice deep dish pizza next time.  Dough, mozzarella slices, a thick and chunky sauce, more goodies, more dough, toppings...   Far too many calories, a proper pie!

@ChrissyRyan
Dear Chrissy:
Thank you for your message.
Yes indeed, trying to access my CPA specialty Tax Sites is rather "taxing"  especially with computer issues and connection problems.  I spend half of my day so far re-entering information because it got lost in the shuffle between computers and connections issues.... arghhhhhhh.

It is now 5:30pm here.... about time for me to go get some dinner next door.   
The next door coffee shop is one of several coffee shops in town but it is very very handy, just a 15 second walk next door... and I think it has the best coffee shop food anywhere I have been here and elsewhere.... plus as I have mentioned in my personal thread, this coffee shop tends to be the town meet and greet... and gossip center!!   
So, 2+ years ago when I was the new girl in town with a new woman owned business next door, I was the topic of discussion for many months.   I might still be as far as I know. 

What is nice about it is that it is good for my business being next door to a popular coffee shop that a majority of people eat at frequently along with the regulars that are there everyday... it gives me a great venue to meet a lot of people in town in a short time.... including most of my suitors... 

There are 2 nice restaurants in town that my suitors #3 and #4 have been there with me....  #1 was my first suitor dinner date but I have crossed him off of the list.

My stomach is telling me it is time to go pick up my dinner now.
Again Chrissy, thank you for your thoughts.
Hugs,
Danielle

I had a late and long lunch today so dinner is not in the cards... but I think I will change into my sweats and put in a DVD movie and do some snacking tonight...

Note: my forums friends  @LizK and @Sonja just might agree with my snack choice!!! ???

.... Oh, and @Michelle_P, your deep dish Pizza looks great, perhaps we could combine and share our "meals" together with @ChrissyRyan .... then we would have all the food groups.

It's broiled eel served over sushi rice with green onions and unagi sauce. If you've ever had unagi sushi it's the same sort of sauce that gets drizzled over the sushi.

Its a very tender fish and when you mix this whole mess up it's really tasty.

Haven't had that in years, but it can be addictive if you like seafood - The unagi sauce gives it that perfect combination of salty and sweet as it is soy sauce mixed with sugar and sweet wine, Very tasty  ;D

chicken Ramen noodles and Oreo   cookies

@stephaniec
Dear Stephanie:
Even though I love baking delicious and tasty homemade cookies, I DO LOVE OREOS !!!
I know this may sound a little strange but I like keeping them in the freezer, as a result they have a "cold" firm texture and I think that the taste is very enhanced....   but OREOS any way I can get them are good.

Oh, and the Ramen Noodles were a favorite of mine when I was in college....  cheap and good...   I used to put cut-up hot dogs in with it sometimes so I could get some fatty protein!!!  LOL

Thank you for sharing,
Hugs,
Danielle

That might be a regional thing because I just saw the mega stuffed ones yesterday. Now the really ridiculously fattening thing is the new "most stuf" version with triple creme in them.

Hi Colleen,                        02 February 2019

Does a late, and I mean late, lunch qualify for supper? OK, dinner if I must. Whatever floats one's boat.

How about a BLT modified to SLT. Yeah, good old reliable SPAM. Tonight I had four of them for lunch at 2010 MST or as we refer to it: DST (Dena Standard Time).

Just so no one thinks I'm a glutton, the four SLT's were Hors d'oeuvres size made with Ritz crackers. Got the idea from one of the pictures on a Ritz Cracker box.

So here is the recipe: Ritz crackers buttered on the unsalted side (they are only salted on the outside), mayo spread lightly on the bottom cracker, baked or fried slice of Spam that fits the cracker, slice of tomato from a Compari(r) tomato, small piece of Lettuce, salt to taste, put top cracker on, put a toothpick in the center hole of top cracker. If you are lucky, the top and bottom crackers will line up and the toothpick will slide right through both center holes. If you miss, the bottom cracker may end up in multiple segments. Try to use toothpicks with one end blunt just in case you forget to take the t-pick out before you chomp down on this tasty morsel. If you forget you will painfully be rewarded.

In a short while I'll be fixing real Supper, OK, Dinner. It's going to be, you may have guessed it: "Spam and Eggs" with Ritz crackers in lieu of toast. Dena said it is Delicious. When that meal is finished around 2330 DST I will have consumed one can of Spam today.

I trust Dena's judgment implicitly and have never found fault with it  On the other hand, my judgment should be suspect from the get-go, unless it's something mundane, like what color panties I choose to wear to my doctor's appointment for my annual prostate exam.

Speaking of which, I have one of those coming up either this or next month. I'm going to wear something so outrageous he'll be left sputtering. He hasn't a clue about my transition, HRT or orchie. I'll be sure to let you all know how that goes. It might require a thread of its own.

Bon appétit mis amigas y amigos.

Best Always, Love
Christine

PS:

I do love Oreo and Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies frozen. I keep cases of them in my freezers in case I get the hungries late at night. When I get to Phoenix Dena's going to put a stop to that craziness, thankfully.

Dear Chrissy:
After reading your post that you had something healthy like your veggie plate... I hate to admit to you about my choice for dinner tonight.   
I had a late and long lunch today so dinner is not in the cards... but I think I will change into my sweats and put in a DVD movie and do some snacking tonight...

Note: my forums friends  @LizK and @Sonja just might agree with my snack choice!!! ???

.... Oh, and @Michelle_P, your deep dish Pizza looks great, perhaps we could combine and share our "meals" together with @ChrissyRyan .... then we would have all the food groups.

Hugs,

... LICOURICE  ALLSORTS ... they are my favorite brand from Australia hence the Aussie spelling on the package ...  American spelling  "Licorice"  ... I discovered them when I was on vacation in Australia last year in January... now I happily order them online.

My son loves to play this game of "what would do you love more" and just the other day he asked "what do you love more chocolate or liquorice allsorts?"  and I stood there completely stumped - he was so proud to have finally come up with a question I couldn't choose between....

I love all the different liquorice sweets you can get, even the controversial 'Dutch liquorice'....very salty stuff.

Dear Colleen:
Your picture of your bread looks good, and  yes with more maturing of the starter it will get better. 

However, the bread, still warm out of the oven, with lots of butter and perhaps some jelly will make it taste mighty fine.

Whenever I bake fresh bread, if I don't have enough willpower, I just might eat a half a loaf with an entire cube of butter!!!  mmm, mmm, good  ....  then I have to hit the gym!!!!

I can't be left without adult supervision when baking bread for the same reason.  It always seems to disappear, along with butter and jelly.

Usually my pan loaves are kind of lopsided and/or flat.  I did this one in a Dutch oven after a friend mentioned the technique.  It worked really well.  I've never made a loaf of bread that looked anywhere near this good.  It's super easy as well, you should try it if you like baking.

As for the flavor?  It was tasty but lacked some of the tangy character of the sourdough I'm used to.  It had some zing but not quite what I'd like.  I'm not complaining considering it's my first attempt.

Sour dough tastes different depending on the source of the culture. San Francisco is one of the more sour starters and most others are less sour. Sour dough is very regional though if you have a healthy culture and are careful handling it, it won't be contaminated by the local culture. I have no idea what type of culture Arizona can produce but my culture is still very sour.

Post by: Colleen_definitely on February 04, 2019, 12:06:28 pm
I tried making starter a long time ago when I lived in Tucson and it ended badly.  Green mold kind of badly so I really have no idea what the culture around there yields.

I also did a relatively short fermentation where I only punched the dough down once and cheated with a dash of yeast.  (I couldn't spend all day working on bread)  Next time I'll let it go longer without the additional yeast to see if I can get more lactic acid production.  Still, considering how "wrong" I went about it, it came out pretty nice.

Normally sourdough is pretty sluggish and I was wondering how you got the bread to rises so nicely. Regular yeast would take the bite out of the bread and would explain your results. In addition it takes almost 2 weeks to really get a starter established which also added to my confusion. As for starters, I purchased mine form Bob's Red Mill (https://www.bobsredmill.com). I haven't ordered from them but Sourdoughs International (http://www.sourdo.com) would be a good place to get different starters. They also have a book called Classic Sourdoughs that will teach you a good deal about the care and feeding of sourdough.

Reheating Pizza in a pan on the stove-top keeps the bottom crust from getting soggy like it would be when you heat a Pizza in a Microwave.

I found letting it rise in a big bowl or basket lined with parchment paper really helps.  Using the paper to lift the loaf and transfer it into a preheated dutch oven makes all the difference in the world.  I always had trouble with deflating my dough before trying that method.  Using a dutch oven really makes baking a presentable loaf easier.

Looks good to me.  Roasts are easy and there's a lot you can do to experiment.  One odd ingredient that is great on a roast?  Powdered ranch dressing mix.  It's seriously fantastic, and super easy.  Powdered onion soup mix is another great option.  Roasts in a slow cooker are also really good, but they tend to shred more so they might not be quite what you want for a sandwich unless pulled beef/pork is what you're going for.

I do love my old Globe brand slicer.  It takes up a ton of room but it's so handy on the occasions when I need it.  Check out craigslist for used commercial slicers, sometimes you can get them really cheap.

I have several knives that I used for various things however my main go to knifes are two Serrated knives, a cheep one I used for tomatoes and a good one that I use  for bread. I also have two chef knifes, one for meat and the other for everything else. Meat requires a really sharp knife so the one I reserve for meat is to ensure it will always be sharp when I need it. This started back when my roommate was still alive and every time I needed to cut meat, the knife was dull. Rather than have an argument, we simply bought another knife. I also told her that I would be happy to sharpen her knife any time she wanted. I even did it a few times when I discovered it was dull while I was washing it.

After that, it comes down to practice. If the knife is big like a chef's knife, it's easer to hold the same way for each cut. If the knife is small and has a rounded handle, it's difficult to be consistent. If you can, hold the knife before you buy it and verify it has a good feel to it. The one I have looks something like the longer one on this page (https://www.samsclub.com/sams/bakers-chefs-cook-s-knives-2-pk/prod5250044.ip?xid=plp_product_1_2).

Life is uncertain, eat dessert first.  :D

Last night I made chili but I decided to be a little weird with it and added leeks in addition to the usual onions.  The difference is subtle but pretty tasty.  However I think this batch of "medium" red chili powder was mislabeled because it was hotter than the "hot" stuff I bought at the same time.  'twas a mite lively  :o

I never ever thought about making curry myself!  I always bought it made, it is an important part of the German national semi fast food, the curry wurst!

I have to try to make my own (if I can find the ingredients, anything not very yankee or latino is hard to find here, even the ready made curry can be hard to find!)

Sometimes you can get lucky and find an Asian market that sells Indian goods as well.

Otherwise you can always look for an Indian grocery store or even order the spices off of the internet.

Two of my cis women friends are from Jamaica.   I eating almost weekly with either of them.  Curried goat is pretty good.  actually, there is hardly any dish that does not get curry as a spice.  Come and visit me, and we can get you eating Jamaican cuisine until you can't eat anymore.  It has become almost a standard kind of food for me.  The sister of one of my Jamaican friends is married to a man from Trinidad, and I get to eat that cuisine once in a while.  In my street I am the only on who is not from Cuba, and one of the neighbors invites me once in a while to eat Cuban food with them, in return I have to cook German for them.  Food wise, I am fully immersed into the Caribbean cuisine.  They don't call it from the Caribbean, for the it is from the Islands!

You may want to ask them about spices.  It is likely they buy them cheaply in large quantities and would be more than happy to share a little bit with you.

Spices is no problem for me.  And I have to share the German national food spice with them, Curry Ketchup, it is only known in those countries in which people eat Currywurst.  These countries are all he German speaking ones, and the Netherlands.

And for over a year now a very small former Jamaican community in Florida!

Your dinner sounds a lot like mine tonight.  I was busy baking so I made a tuna-melt sandwich for dinner.

Tomorrow night on Valentine's Day I am having my Tooth Fairy #4 over to my home for my famous
Beef Stroganoff Dinner and my very delicious Pineapple Upside Down Cake... after dinner we will probably toast our toes in front of my propane fireplace to help ward off the winter cold evening...

I can much appreciate that you are being quite precise with how you described your dinner... and I love how you elegantly described it, something that I would see on a menu at a nice restaurant.  I am thinking you could start a business designing and writing menus for restaurants? ???

I tend to be a basic and simple cook... if I had fixed the same meal for myself I probably would have described it as the following.  "Baked Salmon with Pancakes and a glass of Wine."   
Up in the cold North here in the middle of nowhere I tend to describe my meals with much less elaborate and elegant words... same goes for my next door coffee shop, nothing fancy, just great comfort meal food!!!

Danielle, I was always kind of a connoisseur, and I still try to live a little bit of it.  I always lived in or near big cities, and the availability of different foods was always there.
My friends here are a mixture from different corners of the world (Jamaica, Tahiti, France, Haithi, Hawaii, UK) and we invite each other to dinners of the different nationality.  I am the person who has to cover Germany and the Netherlands.
Besides handling the French cuisine, my French friend is the one who decides on the different wines we drink with our meals.

Just to make it clear, cold smoked Salmon is far from being backed, it is semi raw fish just cured in cold smoke.  Russian pancakes are also called Blini (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blini), and are quite different from pancakes the way we know them.

When you happen to come buy for warming up your feet, I bet we can find something for you to eat beside just pancakes!
Stay warm!

all those type of ho dogs, Franks, winrs, etc. , were brought to this country by the German settlers.  My wife did once a research paper on the influence of German foods in America.  It  was very interesting to see, that candy canes and
Tootsie rolls  were of German origin, while German chocolate cake has nothing to do with Germany!

Anyway, yes I know any kind of meat products stuffed into a round vessel.  I rad that there are currently way over 600 different kinds of sausages for sale in Germany. 
But Curry Wurst is a speciality that gets prepared.  One needs the white type of bratwurst for it (for the version developed in the city of Gelsenkirchen, the Berlin version is different, I do' like it that much), onion powder, curry powder and a special curry ketchup (I get that through Amazon, or make it myself, but that is a messy job).  Put it all together in the right way, and you have your Gelsenkirchen type Currywurst.  I like it best with French fries (but I like almost any food best with French Fries)

It's a favorite with the guys. I will eat cabbage rolls but I'm not wild about them. They are also kind of a pain to make so I don't make them that often. Of course cabbage rolls also cause the farts so I can look forward to Tristan pooting up the bed that night. 😂

Dear Davina:
I think I will come to your house for dinner tonight.   
Before I left for work, I was a little late and didn't make an preperations for dinner tonight so I will have something that is quick and easy, perhaps tomato or mushroom soup (yep, out of a can) and a toasted cheese sandwich...   It is cold outside so instead of a big salad like I usually make when I have not planned ahead, I will have a warm meal instead.

When are you serving dinner?  ...
..   oh, with the time zones, I am afraid I may be too late,
here where I live it is just a few minutes after 3:00pm...
...where you live it must be evening time... perhaps just after midnight!!!

Hugs, and get a good sleep tonight.

@Michelle_P
Dear Michelle:
I apparently and most unfortunately misplaced my invitation to your home for dinner tonight... your deep dish pizza looks terrific.  I like making things like that where one can utilize and use miscellaneous stuff in the refrigerator.  It appears that you have some leftovers for another meal or two.
Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Danielle

I worked late at my office... no dinner at my home but after I locked up I went over to the next door coffee shop and had a wonderful evening meal... Teriyaki Chicken and a dinner salad.   
Chatted with several of my acquaintances there. then after dinner went home, turned on my propane fireplace, changed into my night clothes and my sweats and I am now trying to unwind while being cozy and warm in front of my fireplace.

I would not do a Jägerschnitzel with mashed potatoes, but rather with simply boiled ones (preferably yukon gold or red potatoes), and just sprinkle a little parsley flakes over them, and cover the Schnitzel with the mushroom sauce.
But all that is a matter of ones individual taste (I am not a big mashed potato lover to start with)

The love for mashed potatoes seems to be an American thing.  Yiou eat them, in Germany, too.  But only with specific dishes.
The family of my wife was of English and Danish descent, and did not have a drop of German blood in their vein, but they, too, ate mashed potatoes as if they were going out of style!

Chicken curry, more like a stew with chunky carrots and potatoes in coconut milk. Some vinegar cuts the sweetness , no chillies in this one!!

Yesterday it was vegetarian 3 cheese pasta bake with Chicken.
Let me explain.
I love to cook but have little time to shop so I get meals in a box for 4 days of the week Wednesday to Saturday where all the ingredients are provided for each meal, usually I choose one veggie meal and this time it was the bake. But we had family visitors that meant pushing the meal from 2 to 4, could increase the pasta but needed something to account for less sauce hence added chicken.

I baked some beef ribs.  Tonight's experiment involved making a seasoning rub containing Tajin, a Mexican seasoning containing chili powder and dehydrated lime juice which is usually used on vegetables and fruit.  I added it to a bit of salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder and applied it to the ribs.  4 hours in the oven at 240°F (115°C) and they were really great.

I almost never add salt to any food after it is prepared.

Danielle likely for sure has the answer to that, as she bakes a lot.

Title: Re: What are you having for dinner? 3.0
Post by: ChrissyRyan on March 31, 2019, 08:58:48 pm
I think that some meats may taste better if they have been in a brine.  I just do not usually add salt on the food on a serving plate.  There has got to be some foods that taste lousy if salt was not used in their preparation.

But too salty foods I just do not like.

Chrissy
Title: Re: What are you having for dinner? 3.0
Post by: Colleen_definitely on March 31, 2019, 09:07:31 pm
Poultry is often brined before you buy it, just look on the label for something mentioning a 5-10% solution or some such.  You typically have to pay more for chicken that isn't brined.

For baking bread salt helps the gluten bind together which helps trap CO2 in the bread which helps it rise. 

Soaking for a day or so in a brine solution can definitely help make many cuts of meat taste better, especially thick ones like leg of lamb, turkeys, roasts, etc...

For steaks I like doing a quick dry aging where I sprinkle salt and pepper on them and then let them sit on a rack in the refrigerator for a day or two before cooking them.  It really brings out the flavor.

Baked Trout

Hi Chrissy,                                02 April 2019

My favorite seafood. OK, it's not seafood, it's fresh water fish. I especially like Rainbow Trout when it is fresh. How do you prepare it?

I don't know how many will agree with me, but, the skin is my favorite part of the trout. I also like for the head to be left on; makes it easier to debone the fish.

Best Always, Love
Chris

I'm with you on trout skin.  There's just something good about it.

Personally I like to keep trout simple and pan fry it in butter after dredging it (skin on) in lightly seasoned flour.


But for tonight since I no longer live where trout fishing happens I had stir fried broccoli.

I haven't gone fishing in quite awhile but a friend of mine would broil the trout and other freshwater fish, it would come out pretty good and the meat would practactly fall off the bones  ;D  Makes me tempted to start going fishing again

Chris,

I simply take a steelhead trout filet, with skin, and put it on a baking tray.  Sometimes I will put on a very light coat of butter, but that is not required.  Then I bake it and serve it.  The fish looks great and is firm, though not quite as dark pink as salmon.  The skin is tasty, I sometimes just eat part of the crispy, silvery looking skin.  Steelhead trout that is wild caught from rivers is often called rainbow trout.  The fish I cooked was fresh frozen.  Still, it was very good.

I try to eat only when hungry but sometimes I overindulge when I do eat. So I cut back or fast occasionally to try to makeup for that extravagance.  I also try to keep away from snacking.

Being diagnosed with Type II Diabetes some 20 years ago (a side line of the pleasures of intersex, it comes along with pretty bad eyes), I learned long ago to give u on cookies and ice cream.  They, and other sweets, are not a temptation for me anymore.  I still fall victim to a nice, crusty bread and French Fries in the pounds!

There is a lot of confusion with that name.  Curry (powder) is a mixture of several spices, and it get's it's yellow color by the rather high content of turmeric.   The Indian (east India) people call certain dishes that are spiced with this spice Curry.  Their curry is not what I mean, it is the powder stuff which I use for spicing my foods.  Many families in India mix their own curry, and the ingredients are very often family secrets (working with people from India can be educating).
I buy the curry ready mixed.  I found it interesting that the mixture here is slightly different in taste than the stuff I always bought in Germany or the Netherlands!  Different families might have given up their secrets to the big spice companies!

No, it is a typical German thing, and requires white asparagus.  You take a nice sized slice of ham, cover it slightly with some mayonnaise, and roll whit e asparagus spears into it.  You can do the same with cornichons rolled into the ham.

I am on a carb free diet, and can't eat any starch along with it.  Normally, you would used young potatoes with butter and parsley flakes along with it!

A small slice of soft Italian bread - buttered, sprinkled with brown sugar and cinnamon, and warmed in the oven.  Yummy.

One small sweet Hawaiian roll loaded with warm ham and melted Swiss cheese, with fennel seeds.  I stacked the ham high and it was sticking out from all sides of the roll.

This is not really good for a very low carb and sugar diet.  Well, I did not care about that today!

I will probably have a pear or orange later, if hungry.

Shrimp and beef fried rice, but with very little rice, instead - lots of shrimp, thin sliced beef, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, and water chestnuts.

The way I made this was rather simple.  Although you could bake or fry in a skillet or even make it like a stew or with broth, what I did was to boil the kielbasa in one pot, and in another pot cooked some cabbage, a can of potatoes, and some fresh tiny carrots until the veggies were soft.  Then I served up the sausage and veggies and ate them.  Very good.  You could vary the veggies to what you prefer.  Potatoes have carbs, so you may not want to eat them.  But I am not eating that many regardless, despite being on a low carb diet.

I tend to cook simply, not like the great chefs on this board!

I might do the Kielbasa tomorrow, because cooking is not possible currently.  We have our first Monsun type storm going through, and in southern Florida that means frequent power outages!

I had comfort food 'taters, yesterday. 
1.  Clarify two onions in half stick of real butter, add salt and pepper to taste while cooking then off, add a layer of whatever potatoes you like (tots, fries, cottage cuts, hash browns, etc.) in a layer over the onions.
Add a layer of bacon crumbles (lots). 
2.  Cook at about 300F for five minutes (cover and leave them be); you are looking for the caramelisation and crunchy goodness.
3.  Flip, turn over and mix it all up.  Add the other half of the stick of butter if you have a hankerin' to. In little patties spread over the top, so it melts down through the potatoes.
4.  Cook for at least another five minutes (cover and leave them be).
5.  Then cover with a layer of shredded cheese; Colby and Jack mix is my favorite (cheddar gets too stringy) and cover and cook until cheese melts.
6. Cut down the middle and flip one side over the other.   Serve.  Smell the goodness?  Yum.


Tonihgt I'm paying penance with baked salmon and salad.  Although that is yummy goodness too! Especially when I sear the fish to a light golden crust.  To the bag of store bought salad, I add cranberries and mixed pumpkin, sunflower, etc. seeds and balsamic vingar.

Good German dinner!  How do you do the Sauerbraten, the Rhineland way, or the southern German way with just a plain gravy?

When I make the stuff, I start to marinade the meat about 4 days before roasting, and turn it twice a day.  It is a lot of work if you want to have Sauerbraten to perfection.

We can PM about it for the case you want to learn more about it.

I had cheesy broccoli with Atlantic Cod Filets

I'm not sure which type it Is actually.  I marinate it for 3-4 days and turn it twice a day. It is a lot of work but it's one of my dad's favorite dinners. I make the gravy from the marinade after the meat has cooked in it. I thicken it with crushed ginger snap cookies. I am always eager to learn about German cooking. My dad was born here but he's German and grew up eating German food. My grandparents moved here from Germany so my grandma cooks authentic German food. She's taught me a lot about German cooking but I'm always eager to learn more. I want my cooking to be as good as my grandma's.

I will pm you my way to make it.  You are pretty much on shot.  The Rhineland version is supposed to be the best.  My way is the way my great grandmother made about 150 years ago, and I am from the Rhineland.

I will get to it in one of the next days, because I have to translate it.

One of my favorites:   Beef Stroganoff with lots of mushrooms.
I put the beef in the slow cooker this morning so all I have to do when I get home from work in about a half hour,  is to add the sour cream and boil the pasta ... and I will make a green salad.
   
Then, after dinner I am planning to read and relax in front of my fireplace... can't do much needed yard work because it is cold and it snowed all morning.   After this weekend it is supposed to finally get warmer, then the outside work begins.

A little known secret is the war between the north and the south continues today and it's because of corn bread. There are two types of corn bread with the difference being northern corn bread is cake like and has enough sugar in it to be sweet. The best example of this Marie Callender's corn bread. Those from the north hate southern corn bread and those from the south hate northern corn bread. You really need to taste both before deciding you don't like corn bread.

Anything is disgusting when one puts this vegemite stuff on!  The similar stuff in the UK is marmite, and when I first tried it, I thought I had to die!

I was running around for almost the entire day, because of this supper was very simple.  Boneless Buffalo Wings fried in my air fryer, and along I had some Brussels Sprouts (I love those a lot).

I don't know for sure but I suspect they are called pork rinds over here. If so, in parts of the country they are as popular as bacon. They are a traditional southern food but they are available most anywhere.

I’ve stuffed these with some minced steak with salt and pepper. Normally we use sausage meat, walnuts, breadcrumbs and some blue cheese. Well we did the other time I made them a few years ago!

What do you use for yours?

I made something like a health food stuff.  I had two Krakauer sausages and needed to use them.  Chopped up into large chunks they went into a crock pot.  They were followed by all kinds of different veggies (a lot of kale was among them), some spices and a lot of simmering, and the outcome was a really tasty stew type of dish.

I will have enough of it for tomorrow, and am looking forward to reheat it (hopefully i will taste even better)!

Rib eye steak, pan fried, medium rare.  Yum!   :)

I have had too many restaurant meals lately because of activities...  I know that some of you may say, "How is that possible to have too many restaurant meals?"

But home-cooked meals are simply nice to enjoy, especially if they usually turn out okay.
I am not a great cook but I can make some meals that turn out well.  (Usually because they are not hard to prepare!) :)

I was out to a restaurant and had fish and chips.  It was tow gigantic pieces of slightly battered, deep fried cod and frech fries.  Out the door went my diet.  I probably gained all the weight back I lost over the last two months or so, but it tasted very good doing so!

I'll often go to restaurants for lunch rather than dinner because the portions are more reasonable.  And less expensive.  Though the dinner menu often has a wider selection.

I am glad you enjoyed the ribs.  I am guessing they were baby back ribs?

I never watched Game of Thrones.  I thought it was a game and maybe it also is a game, as its name sounds like a game!  It even has the word "Game" in its name!

No, it is not a game, it is some kind of epic saga on a fantasy planet with seven kingdoms, and they are fighting against each other about who is the king of the all.  That is the game in the title.
That thing is running for 8 years now, and this was the final episode.  For me it was kind like one of the stories about knights and kings I loved as a kid, the only difference here was that they show a lot of uncovered boobs and some steamy get together of individuals.
Just what the average American viewer seems to like, a mixture of heroes and soft porn!

And yes, the ribs were baby backs, nicely hand rubbed and not much barbecue sauce on (which very often kills all the taste)

@ChrissyRyan
Dear Chrissy:
I read about your cheesy peas idea and I think that would be a tasty item... 
...many times I make cream-peas in a white sauce to serve with baby new-potatoes...so that is similar for sure....  For steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower I many times will make a cheese sauce...   lots of cheese please !!!!!

I have a potluck get-together and card game night at my home tonight for 3 of my gal friends..
....(including my tooth-fairy)

In my slow cooker I am making homemade baked beans with bacon and other things from my refrigerator.... and I will fire up the grill on my deck and make Deluxe Cheeseburgers.... my friends are bringing Potato Salad, vegetable tray, and cake for dessert.

It is overcast and will be in the high 50's, maybe 60 deg (F) later this evening, so if it gets warm enough in the late evening sunlight we might eat and stay on my deck to play cards, but warm and dry indoors is a backup option.

I am having some "artificial crab meat" - flake style.  Actually, it is chunky so it is not flaky like shaved cheese.  It is bought cold in a plastic shrink-wrapped package.

Maybe a peanut butter jelly sandwich should I remain hungry after that, or if this fake crab is bad tasting, which includes being too salty.  Or some of my cheesy peas, which is simply a can of still hot, cooked sweet peas, with a handful or so of shredded mozzarella cheese that melts into it, then I stir it all up.  Quite delicious.

Unless I get invited by one of my friends, I will eat leftovers from last night!

I think the hardest thing for a sigle person is to come up with decent meals every day.  I like to cook, but it is not fun to cook for one person and never get a positive feedback for your cooking!

How do you ladies see this, and how do you deal with it?

Have a card party or any reason for a get together and make and serve something wonderful.
You can make the entrée and have other girls bring side dishes and desserts, beverages, and so on if you so desire.

I see it as a chance to perfect my cooking skills.  My first batch of clams was a little tough.  I dialed in in perfectly the second time.

That's what I do from time to time, when the girlfriends feel like they need eat something German.  We go a little around,  on of my friends is from Jamaica, and another in our group of girls is from Trinidad.  I really love it when they cook original Caribbean food!  I learned from them that Curry, which comes from Est India, is a very common spice for them, because the British introduced it to the islands!
And, what most people also do not know, it is pretty well used in some German cooking.  One very common dish in Germany is even called Curry Wurst!

Christine, if I would have participated in the Linde 500, I would have whopped them all, depending on which of my vehicles I would have taken.  If it would have been none modified garden tractors, I would have been a real front runner, because mine has the largest engine B&S ever made for such tractors.  I have a whopping 29 1/2 hp under the hood!  Try to beat that girl!  (my first VW Beetle had 32 hp, and I felt as if I had a race car).
I don't eat cookies, it does not jive very well with being diabetic!

Hope you are doing well

Hi Linde,                             28 May 2019

I probably shouldn't eat them either; they have a habit of accumulating around my belly.

I have a Deere John 445 Lawn and Garden Tractor with a 22 Horse Kawasaki fuel injected, water cooled V Twin. I had to repair the engine several years ago and decided I wanted to increase its performance. Long story short it did wheelies, ran at top RPM (didn't care what the throttle wanted) and tore up the plastic governor gears (later models had steel gears). It's sitting in the barn and will not be going to Phoenix with me.

I haven't read or heard a word on the Indy 500. I don't even know if they ran it. Maybe interest has waned for that "sport."

Take care mis amiga.

Best Always, Love
Christine

I have anything from 49 cc (for my little scooter) through 950 cc (for my garden tractor), 2100 cc for my Triumph Tr4 through 3300 cc for my SUV, and 7100 cc for my motorhome!

And I think my boobs may have the volume of one cup   = 1,180 cc (2.5 US pt) , which means both would have 2360 cc,
and the weight of both breasts is 2.1 kg (4.6 lb).  They are definitely lighter weight than any of my engines, but they are attached way more solidly to me!

I never really cared for it, neither for NASCAR, i don't like the round and round driving.  I lived only about 100 miles away from the Nurburg Ring race trac (the one that all performance car makers test their cars on).  All races there were pure adrenaline!

You do good lady, and remember, don't do anything I would not do! (I can't answer in Spanish, cause I don't speak that language  :angel:)

I think there is a precise way to measure the volume of our breasts, it is called hemispherical breast measurement.  Search the Internet for the procedure.  Perhaps I will use half a sphere of an orange peel, and see how big an orange I need!  Silly me.  Maybe a grapefruit one day?  Half a softball?

There is always the water displacement test, one can do, but that would means, your boobs get wet (do they shrink when they get wet?).  I went by an guestimation based on the cup dimensions.

I am unsure why and how we got to talking about engines then engine displacement to breast cup size volume, but it seemed like a conversation flow.  Sorry about that divergence from food. 

Getting back to food, the Orange Chicken was pretty good, it was with fried, white, long grain rice and veggies such as carrots in the rice.

OK, you got me; what is a Strawberry Uncrustable? Whatever it is, it sounds delicious and I want one. Can I buy them or do I have to make them?

Tonight I am going to have a Thin Crust Pizza from "Jet Pizza" with extra sauce, extra pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, large Mug of water and a Klondike bar, or two. for dessert.

They are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches sold by Smucker's.  They are made with soft bread that has no crust.  They are sold frozen.  Some have just peanut butter.  I have seen three sizes of them.  Look online for lots of details about them.

For the first time in my life, i made stuffed peppers last night, together with fried tomatoes.  It was amazingly good!
I will eat the rest for the upcoming supper!

Linde,

Congratulations on your success.

Maybe you would like cabbage rolls, in a tomato based soup.
Put the stuffing of the green peppers in a cabbage wrap, in a tomato soup base, cook, enjoy.

Cabbage rolls were normal staple at home, but not in a soup, but pan roasted and a sauce of you choice

I have not had either cabbage rolls or stuffed peppers in any way except cooked in a tomato base.

Try pan frying (enough oil/fat is required), and brown one side nicely.  Used the stock from frying, to make a gravy over it.  It is very tasty!

Warm roast beef with melted Swiss cheese on a giant, fresh, delicious croissant.

With fine aroma, presentation, and taste, this was very yummy.

All gone!
