From reading the wiki, consuming large amounts can cause massive diarrhea.  It gives an anecdote of woman losing 24lbs through such a discharge.

3/4 cup milk
1 stick. butter; melted
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 lb. shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 lb. Monterey jack cheese
1tsp smoked paprika
1tsp chipotle sauce
salt and pepper to taste
24  eggs
1lb. cooked sausage
1lb. Cooked diced bacon
1lb. Cooked drained hamburg
2 shredded green peppers.
1/4 cup mozzarella

Welp, there are four of us, 3 of us expecting there to be a week's worth of leftovers.  The fourth said that he could he half of it by himself.  I therefore challenged him to drink 2 pints of heavy cream along with the Omelet, he accepted and living wills have been formalized. 

I'll have my usual breakfast of gruel (skim milk with part oatmeal, wheatgerm, and flaxseed).  Probably spinach salad for lunch.

He claims to have successfully done the gallon challenge.  As it is at someone else' home and I won't be liable I thought I'd see just how true that was.  If he can do a few big glasses of heavy cream I could almost believe it.

It was actually 4 pounds of cheese, the green peppers were forgotten, so we substituted with a dollop of sour cream on each portion.  The calorie count came back as follows, and this doesn't take into account the meat and everything was well drained:

Serving (without sour cream): Probably around 1500-2000 calories
250x RDA cholesterol and sodium requirements

Just ate a South Jersey delicacy, the original Tarantini panzarotti:

(http://astroluxe.com/blogpics/Eating/panzarotti/panzarotti2.jpg)

Deep-fried egg dough filled with cheese and tomato sauce, similar to but distinct from other "pizza pocket" variations.

Between this, the stromboli, and the ISOP, the Phila metro area really has more than its fair share of inverted pizza-related specialty foods, not to mention indulgences like the cheesesteak egg roll, available at any Plexiglass-screened Chinese food restaurant:
(http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3057/3027759349_382a60e2ce.jpg)

And if you're ever stuck at the Philadelphia Airport, try to get to Romano's in Essington (a tiny industrial town on the city limits near the airport) to try to original stromboli, invented there in 1950.

It turned out well. It wasn't exactly the same as restaurant quality, but it was really good. It was more complicated than I am used to, and it took a while to cook.

The first half of a slice was "good," the second half was edible, and by the second and third slices I had to resort to spreading the remainder around my plate so the waitress wouldn't think I was a pussy.   :Embarrass:

Title: Re: What are you eating?
Post by: Caliga on September 07, 2009, 09:47:53 pm
Not at all. First, I take four frozen biscuits (brand doesn't matter so long as they are either buttermilk or 'southern-style') outta the freezer, preheat the oven to 350 (I think... whatever the biscuit package says), and throw the biscuits in there.

Next, I take half a tube of Purnell's Medium Whole Hog Sausage and bust it up with a wooden spoon in a skillet over high heat.

Once it's all brown and in smallish pieces, I add one cup of hot water and one cup of milk.  Then, I turn the heat up to high and, when the liquid starts to boil, I stir in half a packet of Southeastern Mills Pepper Gravy mix.  Once I've got the mix powder thoroughly stirred in, I turn the heat down to low and simmer the sausage gravy till the biscuits are done.

Once everything is done cooking, I split the biscuits, putting four halves on a plate, cover the biscuits with the gravy, and then liberally sprinkle the gravy with ground black pepper.

Looks more like Cordon Bleus than schnitzels if you ask me...

This week I'm making sauerbraten (yesterday's dinner was from a restaurant) with spaetzle and sauerkraut, and grilled bratwurst with roasted red taters and sauerkraut for dinners.  :cool:

You're gonna get fat, dude.

I had Vietnamese food yesterday for the first time.  It was the shiznit.  :cool:

I had some shit called "Bun Thap Cam".  Basically it was a bowl of ramen with lettuce, carrots, some other vegetable (daikon?).  It was topped with char-grilled marinated pork, chicken, and shrimp, sliced-up egg rolls, cilantro, and ground peanuts, and came with a little bowl of some kind of sauce to pour on top of it.  The sauce was clearly a rice vinegar base and tasted sweet and garlicky.
Title: Re: What are you eating?

Yep, Vietnamese food is pretty good.

Try their Spring roll. (Different from the Chinese spring roll)

Was the sauce kinda grey/brown or light yellow almost transparent, Caliga?

I find bison is so lean it doesn't make for a very good steak.

However I have fully switched to ground bison instead of ground beef - leaner and more flavourful.

Post by: Tonitrus on November 18, 2009, 01:32:11 pm
To be fair, I am not a big fan of the steak either...but I rarely eat a straight up steak, or better to say, rarely cook my own at home (and note, my caveat was food that I prepare...I'll eat a beef steak if eating out).

I mostly use ground meat, or steak tips in a homemade stir-fry(my current culinary experiments).

I drank a lot of coke too.

Now I'm making some pizza dough for tomorrow (mostly whole wheat) and some bread for the week.

It will be a beer based bread.  I have about fifty fucking bottles of beer through a variety of reasons.  Baking with it is as good a means of getting rid of it as any.  I used some left over wine in the pizza dough.

The beer bread will be a mixture of whole wheat flour, vital wheat gluten to try to make it less brick like, with wheat germ, wheat bran, and oat meal mixed in for extra fiber.

Title: Re: What are you eating?

It's been a recent trend for foreign fast food joints to try to establish a foothold in the US.  For example I remember seeing someplace that there are now Nando and Jollibee outlets in the states.
Title: Re: What are you eating?

Apparently they used to have MOSBurger in Hawaii but it failed.  I'd think a Japanese chain would have the best chance there.  Maybe they'll give it another go.

I'd really like to try Nando's someday.  I've been to a peri peri chicken place before and it was pretty good.
Title: Re: What are you eating?
Post by: Caliga on November 19, 2009, 10:14:02 am
IIRC they have opened a Nando's in NYC and a couple in California someplace, and similar pattern with Jollibee.  I think Jollibee is a Filipino chain, so I imagine they're initially trying to open them in places with lots of Filipinos.

Korea likes the one nearest our house, but everything I've ever tried from there has been substandard.  The lo mein is okay, but it's really hard to fuck up lo mein and the fact that is only "okay" is pretty damning.

Chinese food is always risky in the US.


We recently tried a new place within walking distance of my house. None of the waiters could speak English, and my wife's chicken dish had a chicken foot in it.

















:cool:


Yeah, this is the real thing, bitches. We'll be walking there every weekend until they inevitably go out of business.

We had a small department dinner at an Italian Cantinetta off St. Stephan's square last week. Gazpacho as starter, then Veal with lemon sauce and pasta, plus only a few drinks came at 60 EUR. But the company paid, so what. :lol:

The previous government's finance minister sat at a neighboring table, though.


For lunch today I had Schnitzel baked in beer dough, with potato wedges and garlic dip.

It's actually not that bad, it's only 640 calories in the Reese's cups, 900 in the Pringles; for my next meal I had some gross microwave enchilada verde thing that I wouldn't have even bought if I'd noticed the stupidly proud "no GMO" label on the box, which was 400.  So 1940 in total for the day.

Diabeetus is weird in how unpredictable it is.

A buddy of mine at work used to work with a guy who was like 600 lbs. and who claimed he didn't have the diabeetus.  Anyway, one time he went to the mall with this guy for lunch.

He started his lunch at Jersey Mike's, where he got a large steak and a GALLON of *sweet tea*.  He also bought a full size (i.e. not a little lunch bag) bag of Doritos to go with it.

He ended his lunch at Cinnabon with a box of 6 Cinnabons.

Seriously, he must have consumed at least three pounds of sucrose in that one meal.  Yet... no diabeetus. :blink:

WIN.  My rolls were alot more breadlike than store-bought, and not nearly as sweet--which is a good thing IMO.  The sad part is I still used 1/4 cup sugar in the dough and 1/4 cup sugar in the filling, so I can't imagine how much sugar (or corn syrup, I guess), is in storebought rolls.  :yuk:

Bell, anaheim and jalapeno peppers, red onion, carrots, can of stewed tomatoes, yellow squash, raisins, dried apricots, chicken broth and chicken thigh meat that I browned.

Spices:

salt
pepper
cayenne pepper
cardamom
tumeric
paprika
garlic powder
cinnamon


Served over barley

I got into making bread, got myself a bread machine. So far the bread has been great; been using it instead of store bought.  I have two recipes for white bread that I really like. Still learning, trying new recipes. Finding which I like, and trying breads like corn bread and others.

Over the summer I got a ton of veggies from my garden. Corn, tomatoes, beans. Lots of beans, the pole beans, which keep producing more than bush beans. I planted a lot of those three veggies. Corn was delicious, tasty, sweet and meaty in texture. So many tomatoes; gave a lot away but I've been eating a lot of them too. I had one cherry tomato plant - darn thing spreads out, needs its own zip code! Got tons of tomatoes from it. Planted lots of beans, too many, lol. I have about twenty packages frozen in the freezer, and those will last me a good while.

Took a lot of work though, for the garden. Between bugs and critters eating the young leaves, killing plants. I had to replant at times, and put down some critter repellent. Also sprayed a lot of hot pepper spray, which kept critters and probably bugs from eating the leaves. I also used some spray pesticide early on, not a lot though.

I wish I could tell if it's just caramelized sugar, or if it's something nasty.

What a rotten day.

I'll grow them back, like a shark.

In any event I can't eat those Dum-Dums.  I'm pretty certain the brown spots are just caramelized sugar (it could get really hot in here over the summer, up to 90F), but don't wish to chance it.  I already owe the hospital enough money.

I gorged myself on Krystal when I was in Knoxville.   :Embarrass:  I never intended to do it, but every time I left my apartment to do any errand, I ended up getting a four-pack of Krystals, bringing them to the beer bar across the street to enjoy, getting drunk, and then going back for some Spicy Chiks to liven up the 3 block walk back home.

Migas, a couple of tortillas, Cholula, beans, coffee.  Glorious.  I think my coffee maker might be fucked up somehow though.  It's taking a REALLY long time to brew.

Edit: Goddammit.  And now I just completely brainfarted and only heated up...well exactly half the amount of water that goes in the press.  Naturally I only noticed after dumping it in there.

We actually have a number of Chik-Fil-A locations around here, and we now have Zaxby's as well... and of course there's the Popeye's that I mentioned.  There actually aren't as many KFCs as you might expect...  there are only about 25 in Louisville.  I actually think we have more Taco Bell locations (both being Yum! businesses) than KFC locations.

I'm a fan too.  They have good fried mushrooms, and their boneless buffalo wings are about the same as Bdubs (though you can get them much hotter at Bdubs, of course).
Title: Re: What are you eating?
Post by: Ideologue on December 27, 2011, 08:57:03 pm
The local Zaxby's is kind of shitty.  I love buffalo wings and I used to eat them all the time, but Zaxby's were often not very spicy--their definition of "insane" and mine are clearly not the same*--and/or undersauced, along with long wait times at the drive thru.

*Now Wild Wings?  They merit the name "insane," although their hottest sauce is called "braveheart."  That shit is good, but capable of causing chemical burns to skin that doesn't have access to a salivary flush system.

Like one's dick. <_<

Edit: oh, "Bdubs" is BWW.  Gotcha.
Title: Re: What are you eating?
Post by: MadBurgerMaker on December 28, 2011, 04:48:59 am
My wife still calls it BW3.  I dunno.  The wings are okay and all that, but goddammit even in the "family" area (they don't have a fucking smoking section anymore, so that just means the part where the taps aren't instantly visible, I guess), they have the music/TVs up so loud you have trouble hearing the person across from you.  Sure, I'm down for that sometimes, which is when I'll head into the bar area, but turn it down a little out front, mooks.  The Cowboys game doesn't need to be on 12.  Aikman and Buck will be just as boring on 8.  I promise.

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1/2 tbsp Sambaar curry powder
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup dry lentils
3 cups water

Pour oil into cooker.  Sautee onions in cooker over medium heat.  Add everything else except the salt.  Close the cooker, turn heat up to high, and cook under pressure for 3 minutes.  Take cooker off heat and let pressure drop on its own till fully depressurized.  Stir in salt.

Took Princesca to Limestone for her dinner, which is a local place that does fine dining with a Southern flair.  For an appetizer, we had macaroni and cheese with crabmeat, which probably sounds like shit to most of you but tasted really good.  For my main course, I had sole stuffed with crab on a bed of creamed spinach with fire-roasted Brussels sprouts, and she had a pork chop with a cranberry garnish over grits with mixed vegetables.  She had creme brulee for dessert and I had a peach and almond tart with pistachio ice cream.  Drinks were the house chardonnay (which was actually kind of flat) and cappuccino for me and regular coffee for her for dessert.

This restaurant has kind of a mixed reputation around here... it's right by my office and someone commented that it was "horrible" there.  While I don't agree with that, it's definitely not my favorite fine dining establishment in town; we have a place called Z's Oyster Bar and Steakhouse which I like better, as well as the famous Vincenzo's downtown.

You go to Grandma's Kountry Kitchen and you get pork chops with smashed taters for 9 bucks.  You go to Chez Hipster and they put the pork chop ON TOP of the smashed taters, drizzle some colored goo on the side of the plate and charge you 19.  If I really want the pork chops on top of the potatoes I can do that myself at Grandma's.

My "signature dish" is Alaskan King Crab Macaroni and Cheese.

Seriously - I made it once, made it a second time when my mother in law was here, and she absolutely loves the stuff.  And she is a professional short order cook who owns her own restaurant.

I keep trying to tell her that it is easy to make a dish that tastes delicious when you take ~$50-$80 worth of ingredients into a mac and cheese, but she doesn't believe me.

Of course, Alaskan King Crab is a hell of a lot more expensive when you live in Alberta, not Yukon. :(

Anyways, I bring this up to say I can believe that mac and cheese with crab is pretty damn good stuff.

There's a family tradition of cooking people a special dinner for their birthday in her family consisting of whatever you want.  Princesca and I decided that it would be fun to start requesting that she make us ethnic stuff.  So for my birthday, I had her make me sauerbraten and German tater salad, and Princesca decided to have her make Cuban food.  She did a good job both times and some of these dishes have started to appear at family potlucks, thereby breaking up the endless monotony of various casseroles and the like.  The German tater salad made a reappearance at Christmas (my sister in law made it that time, though). :cool:

Actually, they're pretty much the same letter, with Ё (pronounced "yo" vs. "ye") often just indicating where the stress is.  They're similar enough that in typed Russian, you'll almost never see the umlaut, even if the pronunciation is "yo".  Often makes it a pain for schmucks like me to figure out where the stress is.  :P

Tonight for dinner I had pralines and cream ice cream and a cherry limeade soda. Ide would be proud.

Most excellent.

I wanted something light, so I got two large fries and a caramel frappe McDonald's.  No whipped cream. :yuk:

Okay, probably not the whole box.  Until satiety.

They're the brown sugar cinnamon kind.  The generic Pop-Tarts all have frosting, and believe it or not, it's the only kind I like.  You see, when I bought name-brand Pop-Tarts, I'd get strawberry and blueberry ones... without frosting! :o

Don't they generally have an image and some text on the box to let you know if you're getting the frosted kind or not?  :hmm:

I'm saying that Sam Walton doesn't make non-frosted ones.  Kelloggs does.  I don't like that white shit frosting that ruins the fruit filling flavor.  These are basically just sugar inside a pastry, so it goes with it better.

HUDDLE HOUSE IN BARDSTOWN, KENTUCKY AAR

On Sunday Princesca and I had to go to Bardstown, KY to attend a visitation for her uncle's mother.  We got there very early and noticed there was a Huddle House nearby.  I've never been to Huddle House but always wanted to try it so we stopped in for some chow.

The place is bascially a carbon-copy of Waffle House, but has a much larger non-breakfast menu.  I got a pulled pork sammich with fries and Princesca got breakfast.  She said the breakfast at Waffle House is better, but my lunch was better than your typical Waffle House lunch (they don't have stuff like pulled pork at Waffle House).

Overall I liked it, but I still think the best Southern-based fast food place is Chik-Fil-A.  BY FAR.  I can't wait for the old man to croak, since I imagine his greedy little kids will start opening the restaurants on Sundays. :)

WENDY'S IN SHELBYVILLE, KENTUCKY AAR

Today I had to swing by Lowe's to pick up a bunch of shit for the yard and we ate lunch at a Wendy's next to it.  If you haven't been to a Wendy's in a while, the chain has made some drastic improvements.  I usually get chicken sandwiches there but today I tried the Baconator, which is extremely delicious.  Two beef patties, a layer of bacon, a slice of cheese, and topped off with mayo, ketchup, and mustard.  Their fries are now like boardwalk fries with the big grains of salt.  However, the highlight of the experience was this: I was still kinda hungry at the end of my meal and thought about getting up and getting a frosty, but there were too many people in line, so I said screw it and was getting ready to leave.  Just then, a pleasantly plump negroid employee came by my table with a small vanilla frosty AND OFFERED IT TO ME FOR FREE.  What.  The.  Fuck.  So not only is their food now kickass, but they've perfected the art of mind reading. :blink:  :punk:

Not this time. We waited until we got home, but I think my decision to hit the GL on the way home got her juiced. She was pretty happy. Girls dig that sort of thing, I think. None of the "where should be go?" nonsense. I picked a place and went. She didn't know what I was doing until we got there. In the meantime, she was talking about her business trip and not really paying attention to the fact that--hey wait a minute, this isn't the way home...

Get one of those radio thermometers. Stick the sensor component in the BBQ (in the air, not in the meat). Take the display with you and put it wherever you're hanging out. They usually have temp alarms you can set. It helps to catch flareups and stuff that might overheat the box.

Basque Beans
(Ezkualdun Itarrak)    
What You Need:
1 ½ pounds dried pink beans or dried light kidney beans, rinsed and drained
3 cups water
2 cups Beef Stock or use canned
¾ pound boneless pork cut in small pieces
¾ pound ham steak, with bone
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
1 bay leaf
½ pound Spanish Chorizo Sausage or Mexican chorizo cut in ¾-inch pieces
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
      
How To Cook:
1. In an 8-quart heavy pot, put the beans and at least twice as much water. Cover and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let sit for 1 hour.

2. Drain the beans and return them to the pot. Add remaining ingredients except the chorizo, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and simmer for 1 hour.

3. Add the chorizo and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Beans should be very tender and the liquid will tend to thicken up a bit.

4. Taste to see if it needs salt and pepper.

Eat it all within an hour or it doesn't count.

Though by that reckoning it's been years since I've eaten a whole pizza that was bigger than those homemade Totino's pizzas that cost a buck.

But anyways, you have to love this time of year if you're a foodie.  Last night was one of the simplest, yet tastiest, suppers.  Fresh sausages from the store, grilled.  Corn on the cob, grilled inside the husks, then served with butter and salt.  Fresh baby potatoes, boiled, and again served with butter, salt and parsley. :mmm:

You can get some wonderful ribs doing that.  Put them on low, indirect heat.  Get an grilltop thermometer - you're aiming for 250F.  After about 4 hours put them on direct heat, add some barbecue sauce, cook for another 5-10 minutes (you're just heating up the sauce / adding grill marks at this point) and you're golden.

Throw in a package of woodchips for added fun.

Actually I went there because I've hunted high and low looking for ground bison.  The same ground bison I used to get at my neighborhood grocery store in Whitehorse. :P

So wild meat is probably not the best example to give.  But yeah, there are absolutely some advantages to a semi-foodie like myself to living in the city.  I make regular trips to the local Italian grocery store for all sorts of things I wouldn't be able to find up north.

You would love my butcher.  He has bison steaks, ground meat and even bison pepperoni - a real favourite of the CC clan.

But I go to him mainly for his free range chicken and eggs, pork (where I got the ribs) and grass fed beef.  The CC clan may love him a bit too much come to think about it.  We spend between 250-350 there weekly.

Close to it actually.

That might be a lot for the average family but you need to consider that my boys are now 13 and 15 and they eat a lot.

Typically each week I get:

4 ribeye steaks  - nice and thick (about 2 inches) about 18 ounces each.
4 racks of baby back ribs
2 pounds of chicken wings (make a nice snack)
20 sticks of bison pepperoni
8 chicken legs and 14 or so thighs (basically whatever they have left in the display case)
4 large chicken breasts
2 pounds of stewing beef
2 pork tenderloin.
24 free range eggs
16 no crap sausages.
2 packages of perogies (got to love a butcher that sells those!)

And then whatever they have that week that looks good.  For example, they have a guy who supplies them with pulled pork made with a smoker every once in a while - when that is in I buy it all.  I just cant replicate that sort of thing on my grill.

When things start cooling off I will move toward more roasts in the oven and less grilling outside but we keep doing at least some of that all year round.

So there, all essential food groups covered - beef, bison, pork chicken and eggs.

Pretty sure that during times of bacon shortage (and even when not), most people would say that spam can only be a detriment when merged with bacon.

Five pounds of so-called country-style pork ribs in the crock pot, with mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions, with a tall boy of Schlitz and a jerk marinade.

Did not get enough jerk flavor.  But the pork is super tender.

I got McD at best for their seasonal specials, their breakfast seelction (McGriddles with nutella! Ham&Eggs Wrap! The McMuffins and breakfast burgers!). During winter we get e.g. "Hüttngaudi" which gives ski resort themes, i.e. inspired by apres ski food. Earlier this year (or last year?) they had burgers cerated by gourmet chefs. Etc.

Still prefer BK by a mile. KFC is ok-ish over here, but severely lacking in choice. I miss Popeye's. :(

They've recently added McNoodles (curry or sweat&sour) . . . because there's apparently a lack of places to buy those. :rolleyes: Next thing will probably be either McBratwurst or McDönerKebab, because there's so few of them, too.

veal sweetbreads with orange and belgian salad
steak-and-kidney pie
chopped beef kidney with mushroom and bordeaux sauce, with polenta
tagliolini in chicken liver broth
tripe, Veneto style.

Everything coupled with the right wine, ranging from chardonnay for the brain to a really excellent lagrein for the tripe.

Quote
(Newser) – If you don't want to eat horse, you might want to drop the chalupa. The great European horse meat scandal has spread to Taco Bell, with British regulators revealing today that they found horse meat at the chain's UK locations. That, it turns out, puts the Bell in pretty elite company; of the 1,797 meat samples regulators tested from across the country, only four came up positive, including Birds Eye ready meals and Brakes skewers, which had already been implicated, Reuters reports.

Taco Bell has just three outlets in the UK. The company released a statement stressing that the contaminated meat came from a single supplier in Europe, and noting, "We immediately withdrew ground beef from sale in our restaurants, discontinued purchase of that meat, and contacted the Food Standards Agency." But the news comes at an inconvenient time for parent company Yum Brands, which just this week announced it was tightening safety standards after its Chinese KFC restaurants had a contaminated chicken scare.

Though I'm guessing the scotch egg as nothing to do with either Scotland, Ireland or for that matter wholesome eggs.   :bowler:

Apparently not:

The London department store Fortnum & Mason claims to have invented Scotch eggs in 1738,[1][2] but they may have been inspired by the Moghul dish nargisi kofta ("Narcissus meatballs").[3]

The earliest printed recipe is the 1809 edition of Mrs. Rundell's A New System of Domestic Cookery. Mrs. Rundell—and later 19th-century authors—served them hot, with gravy

No offence, but that looks like something from the 1973 British Bad Food Guide.

Spam? Solid scrambled eggs? Taters look nice tho'

Had a burger at the much hyped Meat Liquour at lunchtime as I found myslef in Marylebone at the right time and theer were no queues. Decent enough but not worth the hype. At the end of the day there's only so much you can do with a burger.

Have to admit I haven't had spam for more than 20 years and can't remember what it tasted like. It's so unfashionable here, I'm surprised it hasn't come back into fashion.

Scrambled eggs should be cooked until they are just set - i.e. over a very low heat, stirring constantly. If you want them solid you should just have an omlette.

I'm soaking some chicken parts in a mixture of buttermilk and hot sauce so I can fry them tomorrow.

Any of you southerners have an opinion on the proper way? I figure I'm going to use my wok. The cast iron skillet would work but I think I can control the wok easier. I have a Le Creuset too if that would be better. What mixture should I use for the flour coating? I'm thinking I'll put salt, pepper, maybe some paprika and cayenne. They say the crust is better if you use some baking powder with it. Maybe I'll do a test. Egg or no egg? I think no since I have the buttermilk but hey.

I have a beef brisket covered in a salt mixture to cure in the fridge. It will take three or four days. Once it's cured, I'll take it out, rinse it clean, dry it, rub it with garlic and cover it with a combination of coriander and peppercorns. Then I'll slow smoke it for eight or ten hours, probably Sunday. Homemade pastrami.

I had many a pao de queijo recently.  They're okay.  My family all commented on how much Brazillians seem to like their cheese.

I was generally disappointed with the food in Brazil.  Meat was universally over-cooked.  They have absolutely amazing fresh fruits - but they seemed to rarely serve them.  And though I like beans just fine, they don't seem to do anything very interesting with them when they get served at every meal.

I did find one amazing dish I'd never heard of before though - moqueca. :mmm:

The pastrami is done curing. I rinsed it off completely, rubbed it with garlic and covered it with pepper and coriander. It's in the Akorn now to smoke for a long time. The curing process is interesting. It produced a couple cups of water that was pulled from the meat. It also made the brisket hard. I didn't cut any to see if the nitrite did it's job and gave it that nice red color inside, but I'll find that out soon enough.
Title: Re: What are you eating?
Post by: MadImmortalMan on April 15, 2013, 12:17:06 pm
It took 5.5-6 hours on the smoker to get my pastrami up to the right temp. I'm finding that this thing cooks everything just a bit faster than most smokers.

So anyway, it turned out with a nice red inside the way it's supposed to with a spicy pepper crust. I sliced a little bit off to see. It's pretty salty and spicy. Tonight, I'll experiment with a couple ways to treat it for the last step. Katz steams theirs for three hours I think. I might try putting a chunk in a crock pot on a rack with some water under it. Last night I took a tiny bit of the piece I cut off and nuked it in a small bowl with some water. It essentially turned the water into a rich salty beef jus. I sopped that up with some bread and ate it. Really flavorful but very salty.

I think I'll also try soaking some slices in cold water for a little while to cut the saltiness down. Maybe four days was too long to cure it. If the thickest part of the brisket is cured all the way through, I'll test curing half the time next time.



Title: Re: What are you eating?
Post by: MadImmortalMan on April 15, 2013, 11:25:01 pm
Well I've put the entire brisket through the slicer and I've got a mountain of pastrami now. I was overly worried about the saltiness. (The piece I tested was from the very tip of the brisket flat and saltier than the rest.) I should add up what I spent on this to see if it's worth it to do it this way or just buy it. The quality is definitely better than the average supermarket kind, I think.

It's an experiment. I enjoy the process. I might do it again and improve it, or never touch it again. In Europe, charcuterie is commonplace, but over here, it's just not part of the scene. I will be trying salume of various types in a wine fridge with a couple adjustments. I can't buy Jamon Iberico or saucisson sec in the US of pasteurized A. I'm not blowing the cash it will take to make the good stuff until I can at least make some decent pastrami and pancetta. It's education.

So yeah, I wound up with ~5lb pastrami from my experiment. Enough to live on long enough to sail to the New World.  :P

Wife had a early Mothers Day day off, and wasn't real hungry when supper came around.

So in fending for myself (mind you, I do a lot of the cooking around here) I looked through the fridge and found a can of Klik (Canadian version of spam).  So I had a fried Klik sandwich.  Damn god. :thumbsup:

Tempered the spiciness of the Chipotle products by dipping them in Tomato soup.

NY strip, medium, done on the cast-iron. Baked potato and green beans cooked in the steak juices after they came off with some diced bacon and chives.

When cooking the steak I've discovered I don't need any butter or anything. I just sear it on the fatty edge by standing it on end first. That gets me enough cooking medium to do the whole thing. Steak + pan. Nothing else.

I find that rubbing a little olive oil on the steak itself after dry-rubbing it to be more than enough, and it seems to make the pan frying more consistent.

I had Jagerschnitzel with spatzle and carrots, a glass of Franziskaner Weissbier, and coffee and weichselstrudel for dessert.

Not only was the food awesome, but pretty much every waitress in the joint was hot, they wore dirndls, and most of them were actual Germans. :cool:

Nah - all the ash and whatnot in the bottom was seriously building up.  Plus the heat shields were corroding away to nothing, so I had bits of rusted-out metal everywhere too.  Like I said - bad.

I usually crank the grill for 10 minutes before cooking anything on it anyways.

Buttermilk Koldskål (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buttermilk_koldsk%C3%A5l)

The local bakery won the Danish Championship in Koldskål and now sells it from the store at an insane price.

But it is goddamn delicious.

For dinner we had bread (homemade by me), cheese, fruit (apples and pears), salami, prosciutto, and wine. :cool:

We do this dinner on occasion and always try to pick a couple of different cheeses, including ones we've never had before if possible.  Today's cheeses:

Saint-Andre - triple cream Brie-like cheese from Coutances, Normandy.  It was a little too rich for my liking, but went well smeared on pear and apple slices.

Époisses de Bourgogne - one of the worst-smelling cheeses I've ever had, but had a pretty good taste.  Overwhelmed most everything I put it on, but was too pungent to be eaten alone, so I ended up eating it with bread.

Mahón - from the city of the same name on Minorca.  I LOVED this cheese, easily my favorite of the three.  The only one I really liked eating all on its own.

Princesca and I tried a Nigerian restaurant today.  It was AWESOME. :mmm:

We got moin-moin for an appetizer, which are these little bean curd cake things topped with a spicy tomato sauce.

For entrees Princesca got chicken peanut stew, the stew being a very peanutty curry, basically.  It came with fufu, which is this stuff kind of like grits.

I got Peri-Peri chicken, which was a blackened breast of chicken marinated in some sort of extremely hot spice, with a side of jollof rice (basically rice in a spicy tomato paste) and a side of kuchambari, which was like a sort of cole slaw in some purple lemony sauce.

I've had two tomato plants growing on my deck.  They made a whole whack of really ugly, split tomatoes.  I did the only thing I could - made tomato sauce.

I've never made home-made tomato sauce before.  It's definitely a PITA to do - having to skin and seed the tomatoes.  However the end result was pretty good - and nothing like a jar tomato sauce.

I nearly set fire to the neighborhood this evening.

I was doing some tri tip and corn on the cob in the grill. I finished the corn and took it off, brought it in the house. In the amount of time it took to get the corn inside and get back out there my tri tip had basically exploded in flames. I mean my charcoal disintegrated, my grill brush caught fire and I couldn't put it out without turning on the hose. I sprayed down the trees behind the grill just to be safe. The air here is already full of smoke from the fires over the hill, tbh. My contribution might have been noticed otherwise.

Beef tallow can apparently create a massive amount of heat in very little time. The flames were about five feet high. I was able to salvage it but I'm very good at this and even I can get caught out by random acts of immolation.


Edit: This was the first time in a while I used the normal grill instead of the Akorn, which is much easier to control. I may be getting spoiled. At least all the spiders are certainly dead.

We went to a nice place tonight for our anniversary.

I had five courses prix fixe : first was a jumbo scallop in a grapefruit beurre blanc, second was a rocket, pickled onion, and goat cheese salad, third was a filet of coho salmon over asparagus and a pancetta risotto, fourth was a 4 oz filet mignon, fingerling potatoes, and roast broccoli with a caramelized foie gras sauce, and fifth was some kind of chocolate tart with mixed berries and a scoop of banana ice cream.  Had a glass of malbec to drink with dinner and coffee for dessert.  Really good meal.

Princesca ordered a la carte and her main course was roasted quail with morels, which she did NOT like. :(  Neither one of us had ever had morels before and she gave me one to taste.  It was... odd.  I don't really know how to describe the flavor other than it was oddly sweet, which I'm not sure if that was natural to the morel or had something to do with how it was prepared. :hmm:

I've had two tomato plants growing on my deck.  They made a whole whack of really ugly, split tomatoes.  I did the only thing I could - made tomato sauce.

What about salsa?

You're right.  I could have made home-made salsa as well.

Happy? <_<

Well just for garbon* I made fresh salsa last night.  Served it on top of carne asada for slightly more authentic tacos (compared to the stuff from a kit we usually make).  Darn good actually. :thumbsup:





*Not really, but I realized that in addition to the fresh tomatoes I needed to use, I also needed to use up the chili peppers I'd grown...

A very brief history lesson... Alberta politics are weird.  Always have been.  One of the many strange things about this province is that despite having a well-earned reputation for being right-wing, we actually have a government-owned bank.  It used to be Alberta Treasury Branch, now called ATB Financial.  It was set up by the Social Credit government back in the 1930s, and is still going strong.  It operates exclusively in Alberta, and as such escapes any federal regulation.

So anyways, the food truck I go up to has a bunch of ATB Financial flags around it.  I get in line, and a lady approaches me and says that it's ATB's 75th anniversary.  To celebrate, they were sponsoring a special Avocado, Bacon and Tomato burger at this food truck (ATB burger, get it :rolleyes).  It was for $5 instead of the regular $10 they'd charge (and indeed everything else on the menu was ~$10).

So, because Bible Bill Aberhart wanted to stick it to the big banks back in the depression, I got a half-price burger, plus a lunchkit and some jelly beans today.  Strangest promotion ever.

The burger itself was very good.  The avocado (well, guacamole) was surprisingly tasty on a burger.

But this is probably my last day for eating lunch outside from a food truck. :(

My mother in law likes to cook me dinner for my birthday.  I always ask her to make something from a different ethnic cuisine each year because I like to broaden peoples' horizons. :cool:

This year, I picked Dutch in honor of my Dutch ancestors.  She will be making this thing where you boil a bunch of taters and then sort of mash them up with butter.  In a separate pot you cook down greens (kale or endive) and steam sausage over top of them, and in a skillet you cook up small pieces of bacon and onion.  At the end you mix it all together and serve the sausage on top.  I forget what it's called off the top of my head but it means "mash pot" in Dutch I think.

I also had her make me an apple pie for dessert but it's a little different than an 'American' apple pie in that you mix in cream of wheat/semolina and shredded bread and use a bunch more spices than usual (including cardamom and black pepper), and raisins soaked in rum or brandy.

Sounds similar to the Northwest German "Grünkohl" dish.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kale

Quote
A whole culture around kale has developed in north-western Germany around the towns of Bremen, Oldenburg and Hannover. There, most social clubs of any kind will have a Grünkohlessen or Kohlfahrt ("kale tour") sometime between October and February, visiting a country inn to consume large quantities of kale stew, Pinkel sausage, Kassler, Mettwurst and Schnapps. These tours are often combined with a game of Boßeln. Most communities in the area have a yearly kale festival which includes naming a "kale king" (or queen).

What's the difference between cafe con leche and coffee with milk?
Here's how I make cafe con leche, which tastes just like what you can get in Miami:

1.  Fill coffee cup 1/4 full with cold milk.

2.  Add a punch of salt to the milk.

3.  Pour milk into steel frothing pitcher.

4.  Add white sugar to frothing pitcher.  I usually use about two tsp. of sugar.

5.  Steam milk with steaming wand on espresso machine.

6.  Pour steamed milk back into coffee cup.

7.  Fill single shot filter on espresso handle with Cafe Bustelo ground coffee.

8.  Pull shot of espresso into coffee cup, stirring constantly with a teaspoon.

It looks like a lot of steps but it only takes a few minutes to make.

Oh God, I ate so much I'm going into shock.

Fried chicken, two helpings of stuffing, mashed potatoes, sausage, cheese, pumpkin soup and pumpkin pie...washed down by rum and coke.

I made it out without going back for seconds. Turkey, brussels sprouts, stuffing, mashed taters, corn, green bean casserole, a roll, a piece of pecan pie (because pumpkin equals hurl), one cup of coffee (with the pie), and about 592 glasses of a nice, strong, peppery Zinfandel. After all the eating, my essentially-brother-in-law and I watched football and played cribbage. I have to work today though :(

I'm back in the D for the Holidays.  CB and I went to a Fresh-Off-the-Boat Yemeni restaurant.  I had never been to a Yemeni restaurant before; there food is similar to Arab, but uses spices more common to India.  They even serve a sort of chutney with their meals.  I had the lamb stew (Mandeh) and CB had a chicken sandwich (Gaballah) both were delicious.

I had a clementine for breakfast; it sort of tasted like the bitter orange Cubans use in their cooking.  I really should know better than to buy citrus here in Michigan.  In Florida I've found that Michigan staples like apples and cherries have little flavor, but cheap-o supermarket oranges are better than what you can find at gourmet shops in Michigan.

In terms of spice it was similar; but they use more saffron.  They don't have as many bean dishes, rice is more the staple, and their bread is the Middle Eastern pita style bread. 

The Ethiopian food I've had has come from westernized restaurants; while everyone at the cafe we were at yesterday was a recent immigrant so it's hard for me to make an informed comparison.

CB and I went to the Detroit staple Buddy's Pizza for lunch.  While both Little Caesar's and Domino's originated in Metro Detroit; Detroiters tend to consider Buddy's as Detroit style pizza:

(http://www.buddyspizza.com/images/index_image_3.jpg)

It's square, deep dish and cooked in cast iron pans.  The pizza isn't as thick as a Chicago-style pizza and the crust isn't at all like what you'd get at Gino's East or Pizza Uno.  It's crisp and much less dense.

I got dinner with my wife and some friends last night at one of metro Detroit's older restaurants, Peking House.  I had a dish that is common to the Detroit-Windsor area, but almost unheard of anywhere else; Almond Boneless Chicken (ABC on many menus; Wai Shu Gai on ones that try to pass it off as authentic Chinese.)  It's an Americanized Chinese Dish, that's deep fried chicken served on a bed of iceberg lettuce and served with a spicy gravy and almonds:

(http://misckitchen.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/DSC_9030.jpg)

Some restaurants take liberties with it, the version I had last night had broccoli in it.

The other unusual thing that you'll see at many Chinese restaurants in Detroit is that take out, (and sometimes sit-down meals) comes with sweet rolls.  That's likely because a number of restaurant owners had lived in Hawaii before they came to Detroit.

When my grandfather was a young man he lived in a multi-ethnic neighborhood on Detroit's west side.  Every Greek immigrant his family knew had a restaurant; so he assumed that every Greek owned a restaurant.  He wasn't too far off in Detroit; the typical family restaurant and the ubiquitous Coney Island serves Greek food.  CB and I went to one yesterday; National Coney Island.  I had their Coney Dogs, a hot dog topped with a meat chili; the chili is flavored with typical Greek spices like oregano and garlic.  CB got the Gyros with chicken lemon rice soup (soup avgolemono, but no one calls it that in Detroit.)

The other common dish most local restaurants carry is a Greek salad.  The salads I had in Athens were simply tomato, onion and feta with an oil and vinegar dressing.  In Detroit a Greek salad is iceberg lettuce, salad peppers, feta, onions, beets, garbanzo beans, and black olives.  The dressing usually an oil and vinegar dressing with feta, oregano and garlic.  This is so common in Detroit that many bar and grills will carry it.

Nah, just trying various burger places. The problem is to find a decent one in Vienna. One of your best bets would be Burger King, actually, especially when it comes to price vs. quality.

The one I order the above from was actually pretty good (you had to put the burger into the microwave for a minute to re-heat it, though) - I've had some horrible burgers here; either everything soggy and mushed, or so dry you could use it as blotting paper. A chili burger where the "cili" was a small dollop of tabasco hidden in the middle. Etc.

One of the best "burgers" was the "Crispy Queenslander" at an Australian place which put a chicken filet (deep fried in beer batter) on the bun with a slice of pineapple. Unfortunately, that tasty morsel has been discontinued. :(

My recent bachelor dish:

- 1 bag of Trader Joe's turkey meatballs.
- 1 bag of Trader Joe's frozen vegetable blend.

- Microwave meatballs long enough to be able to cut, thaw veggies under hot water, dice meatballs, mix all together in cook in a wok for a bit.  Makes a couple 350-400 calorie meals (one usually saved for lunch the next day).

I shouldn't have gone through this list so far ahead of lunchtime.  They have some really good picks.  I swear I've been to at least 10 of the restaurants mentioned.  I'm a sucker for trying the local sandwich speciality for lunch when I travel on business. 

They even have Seedy's favorite Lake Trout in there.

From that list, I have had:

Alabama: Alabama-Style Chicken Sandwich With White Sauce
Arkansas: Fried Bologna Sandwich (not in Arkansas though... we have those exact sandwiches here)
California: The French Dip
Connecticut: Connecticut-Style Hot Lobster Roll
Florida: The Cuban
Illinois: The Italian Beef
Indiana: The Pork Tenderloin
Iowa: Loose-Meat Sandwich (in Missouri, though)
Kentucky: The Hot Brown
Louisiana: The Muffaletta
Maine: Lobster Roll
Massachusetts: The Fluffernutter
New Hampshire: Beer-Battered Fish Sandwich
New Jersey: Italian Sub - White House Subs is literally the best sub shop on the planet  :licklips:
North Carolina: Chopped Pork
Ohio: The Polish Boy  :cool:
Texas: Brisket on Toast
Vermont: Vermonter
Wisconsin: The Red Brat

I never even heard of the place listed for Pennsylvania, and it's ludicrous that the state sammich wasn't the cheesesteak.  Jersey probably should have been the Pork Roll, too, though like I said White House Subs in AC is amazing.

It seems like it has become very hard to get in Cleveland.  I had to hunt around till I found a place that sold it, and that place has closed since I was up there.  IIRC that Seti's Polish Boy vendor is actually a lunch truck.

A pasty isn't a sandwich.   :mad:

Those are only popular in the western half of Michigan's upper peninsula.  I went to college up there, and I don't much care for them; they're bland and heavy.  The locals love them, though they douse them in catsup.

Given the prolific number of Greek and Middle Eastern cafes in the Detroit area the Gyro would probably have been a better choice for Michigan; or maybe the loose hamburgers from the Coney Islands.

I was in Pittsburgh for business once.  My coworkers insisted that we go to Primanti Brothers for their signature sandwich of meat, cole slaw and fries; but none of the Pistburghers ordered that.  After having one I didn't blame them.  So at least Pennsylvania's wasn't that.

@Sav Yet, to a lot of people, that sandwich would be odd what with the roast pork and all.  Same for the fried baloney sandwich from 'Arkansas' (in reality it's all over the Midwest and Upper South).

Overall I would have to say the Cuban sandwich is the best one on the list if it's done well.

I had duck fat popcorn, beer cheese, and a 'nachburger' medium rare with German tater salad, washed down with a hefeweizen and chocolate pot de creme for dessert.  The burger was made with all local ingredients (local grass beef, bacon, etc.) served on a brioche bun.

I've had it that way, but I don't remember my favorite brand (Seltzer's?) having it.  Anyway, this stuff was pretty well-made.  Boar's Head is usually pretty solid.

Title: Re: What are you eating?
Post by: Capetan Mihali on March 07, 2014, 11:18:20 am
Ah, Lebanon ham. :)

I miss all that Pennsyltucky food and drink. :(  I really lived the dream there for a while, residing in Philadelphia but driving to see my girlfriend in Pittsburgh every other weekend.  Taking day trips to Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, and Allentown.  Side trips to Delco all the time, Doylestown, Norristown.  Stopping off in Altoona, Harrisburg, Ephrata, Carlisle, Lancaster, Lebanon, Reading, etc.  Only place of note I never really got to was Erie.  And most of the emptiness that comprises the famous "T."

So I ate cheesesteaks (American w/ fried onions) all over Phila. and Delco (since some of the best spots were actually in inner suburbs like Upper Darby), noting the regional subtleties; for instance, steaks in Northeast Phila. use sliced beef rather than chopped.  I ate warm links of soft pretzels every morning in the freezing pre-work darkness as I walked past a pretzel bakery on my way to the bus stop, three for a dollar.  I cooled off with cones of water ice outside the library on hot summer days.  I ate stromboli where it was invented in the early 50s (and named after the movie), at a place by the airport in Essington.  I got take-out panzarotti, those fried little calzone things peculiar to South Jersey and South Philly.  I gorged on the roast pork sandwiches, dripping with juice, sharp provolone and greens.  I ate scrapple and fried eggs in countless greasy spoons, accompanied by bad coffee and a cigarette burning in the ashtray, before the smoking ban.  Sometimes I swapped pork roll, but scrapple was my preference.  I ate Primanti sandwiches in downtown Pittsburgh, pierogies and halupki in Bloomfield, chipped ham on a day trip to Wheeling W.V., and great hot dogs in Oakland.  For dessert, there was always Clark bars out west, Tastykakes and Goldenberg's Peanut Chews out east, whoopie pies in Dutch country.  And I washed it all down with cases (and it was always cases because of the wacky liquor laws) of cheap beer: Iron City, Rolling Rock, Straub, Lionshead, Stegmaier, Yuengling Lager, Lord Chesterfield Ale, Schmidt's, Reading Premium, etc.  Not to mention the occasional pint of a delightful microbrew, of which there were too many to name.  A cold Pennsylvania Dutch birch beer now and then for non-alcoholic refreshment.

Between my mind-numbing sedentary job, newfound discovery of happy hour, and culinary explorations, I put on 40 pounds, it's true.  But I did it in the true Pennsylvania way. :sleep:

Smithfield ham for Easter. Classic.

The ham has been split three ways between the family visitors (freeloaders), but I kept the core and the bones. I always do this, Thanksgiving turkey, etc. They've been on the simmer for about 20 hours and now I have 2 gallons of stock. I filled all the mason jars I had available (6) and most of a huge pot which I will use for potato soup in a couple days.

30 bucks, 20 pound ham, who knows how many meals it will end up contributing to. Who knows how much money I've saved since I learned to do this.

I just love it. Take bones, cover with water, put on lowest heat available, go play video games for seventeen hours. And the house smells great too.

It's a beautiful day today, and I had off, so I decided to take a stroll to Mariahilfer Straße, the main shopping street, for some purchases. At the far end is one of our few KFCs. I hadn't been in a long time, so with a swing in my step and a tune on my lips I thought, "Why not?"

Their soda fountain seems to be broken. At any rate, they were pouring coke from bottles instead. Ok, can happen.

I had a chicken cheese sandwich menu and some hot wings. The fries were practically unsalted. Worse, though: the sandwich was dripping with mayonnaise - almost like they had dunked all the ingredients in it. The worst: the chicken was lukewarm at best, and the rest of the ingredients had a temperature as if they had come straight from the refrigerator.

I rarely complain in a fast food joint, but I returned that frozen thing and had it replaced by a warm one. I did get some extra chicken strips for free, though. And the hot wings were ok.

They seemed to have been going for the weirdest sandwich they could find in each state as opposed to the one that actually typifies the state.

In some cases, yes; but the Cuban is certainly Florida's sandwich.
Same for Rhode Island and the Italian Grinder

About half of it.  It was just going to get trashed if I didn't.  I bought too much, it was too greasy, and while the shrimp and chicken were fine, the beef was leathery and kind of gross.

Ah, I see you're unfamiliar with Red Robin.  They offer veggie patty alternatives.  They're actually quite delicious.

I have accidentally gotten one with bacon before.  Oopsy.  For a no-education service position that actually pays almost a living wage, you'd think waiters and waitresses would do their jobs slightly better--I was trained to be sensitive to customers' needs, and I'd have definitely suspected that someone getting a veggie patty burger might be a vegetarian and ask if the bacon was, if you'll pardon the pun, kosher.

Of course, the actual goal of waitstaff is turnover, because money.  Service is secondary.  We live in terrible days with a time horizon on our decisionmaking processes that doesn't extend past about sixty seconds.

They smoked the hell out of it.  Even my baked beans were smoked somehow. 

If you ever venture up here again, the place may be worth checking out: http://elisbarbeque.com/

They're kind of a minimalist setup-- they have limited seating indoors and it's BYOB (which I actually prefer being able to bring my own).  But it's getting quite popular.  There are a few other mom & pop BBQ places around here I need to check out-- dunno why it took me so long to branch out from Montgomery Inn.

The grocery at the corner had steak at half price because its best before date is this Sunday. I picked up a pound each of rib-eye and a pound of rump steak for under €10 (which is a huge bargain here).

Just had the rib-eye with baked potato and a small salad. Very good cut, though I would say that the slices were two thin (half an inch instead of a full inch), making it a bit tricky to fry it rare, but I managed.

Tomorrow the rump steak, then.

For the first time in quite a while I went to a French restaurant today.  This one specializes in Provencal cuisine.  It was: delicious.

I had a merguez sandwich.  It was a baguette with merguez (mutton sausage spiced with harissa), dijon, carrot, and lettuce served with pommes frites and a mesclun salad.  Had a glass of wine from Carcasonne with that (I forget what it was called exactly but it tasted like a merlot).

My German friend grew up close to Warstein, so he's happy to have it so plentiful and cheap here in the US. He appreciated the Weihenstephaner, Geisterzug Gose, and Moenchshof Schwarzbier I brought yesterday, but he mostly drank his Warsteiner Dunkel.

There was a place near where I lived when I went to law school that did pizzas in brick oven with wood fire coals.  They were amazing.  I imagine a BBQ would be about the same.

Princesca and I do this thing sometimes where we watch a movie and make a dinner 'appropriate' to the movie.  Last night we watched Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, so we found a Bolivian recipe to go along with it.... some thing called 'majao'.

It was the SHIZNIT! :cool:  Basically, you take either beef jerky or beef stew meat and boil it in brine for ten minutes.  You then set the beef aside and save the water.  Meanwhile, you saute red onion in corn oil till translucent, and then add chopped tomato, cayenne pepper, a cup of the brine, and two beef bouillon cubes to the pan.  After you cook all that shit together you throw it into tthe pot with the rest of the brine, add two cups of rice, and then some more water, and you cook the rice up like a risotto, basically.

Meanwhile, you take two plantains, cut them in half, and fry them in a little corn oil (I used an electric griddle for this).  Once those are done and the rice has absorbed all of the water, you fry two eggs and serve the majao with the plantains on the side and topped with a fried egg.

You can't fail with a smoked chicken in my experience (so long as you don't overcook it.)  Even if you hadn't used a rub it would still turn out well.  A dark beer with your rub added would make for an excellent mop.

Dinner went well amd the chicken was great, though it didn't have a whole hell of a lot of smoke flavor.  I was afraid to overdo it on the wood chips so I a) didn't soak them, and b) only added like 3-4 new chips once an hour or so (I did fill the chip hopper up before I started the smoker, too).

Caribou in the local cuisine is often overrated.  For example, you can find "caribou hot dogs" for sale, and when you read the ingredients, they say "contains beef, pork, and some caribou meat".

Pure caribou foods are pretty rare.

Just had one of the nicest burgers in my time in Vienna - and from a delivery service, no less (a few blocks away).

On the bottom part of the bun was a jam from glazed bacon, and some rucola/rocket. Then the nicely grilled 1/4 pounder. On it, a few slices of cherry tomatoes, and a few more rucola leaves. On top, just enough blue cheese to be absorbed into the bun without getting soggy.

It looked small, but was really filling, and the ingredients very nicely complimented each other without any one becoming overbearing.

Trying a self-inspired, bachelor-capable, makeshift meatloaf recipe:

- Bison hamburger
- frozen chopped onions
- frozen chopped kale
- frozen chopped peppers
- a few dashes of garlic/herb seasoning
- some sea salt
- egg
- a bit of almond flour
- substituted diced tomatoes from the original recipe with tomato/garlic pasta sauce.
- I lacked ketchup for the topping, so I substituted BBQ sauce. 

We'll see how it turns out in about an hour.  :P

Had my first attempt at a cheddar cheese sauce with bacon bits yesterday.

Result: mediocre. I had to use twice the milk suggested in the recipe to get the right consistency, and I think I used too much flour, because it's pretty dominant in taste. Also, I need to find a balance for the spices I add.

However, served over potato wedges and deep fried chicken it's surprisingly edible.

Yesterday my mother in law cooked me a (very late) birthday lunch.  She made fleischpflanzerl, kartoffelsalat, peas, and pflaumenkuchen.  She did a really good job.  She even went and got the White Castle dusseldorf mustard for the fleischpflanzerl. :)

Texture was iffy, but not bad (not enough kale to be a factor).

Tastes good though, so all is good.  :)

Interestingly, after refrigerating and reheating, the texture is perfect.

A few little tweaks, and this will be a perfect dinner-plus-lunch-tomorrow meal.  :)

When I a kid, for some odd reason my parents considered soda to be a "weekend treat" and we were only allowed to drink milk or water all week, and even on weekends we could usually only have soda at one meal.

So guess what I fucking drank at every goddamn meal as soon as I went to college?  FUCK YOU MOM AND DAD. :punk:

:bleeding:  Yi just explained that it wasn't imported "into" Korea -- it was imported to be sent to the American PX for GIs.  Therefore it could only be purchased by non-(US)military off the black market.  The only possibly surprising thing is that someone would buy that shit.  But I figure it looked pretty attractive during the late 60s/early 70s in the ROK.

I made some pear salad for lunch yesterday.  I almost got pineapple instead, but decided I wanted something less tart.

(In case it has different definitions elsewhere, pear salad and pineapple salad are the primary ingredient plus mayonnaise or Miracle Whip and cheddar cheese.  Pretty delicious, though it's a lot better when all the ingredients are properly chilled.  Oops. -_- )
