I'm hoping for pizza to be honest with you guys. I love pizza.

Lebanese food at its fines. My favorite food. (I need a new camera very badly.)

I'm getting whatever it is that passes for Chinese food in my country. If there's one thing I learned, Chinese food is different everywhere.

Dear Labadal: don't know the condition of said camera, but have you tried running a moist rag over the lens? ;)

 

Chinese food - yeah...one popular thing here is (western) broccoli used in many "Chinese" dishes (broccoli beef, in 'mixed vegtables', etc). Not a vegie native to Chinese cooking. And a lot more meat. But these days there are more places that are more authentic, or at least with more authentic ingredient emphasis, because of all the natural/less-meat trends of the past years.

 

And....since I'm running a fever and have a stuffy nose, I suspect I shall be eating nothing today but some ... chicken noodle soup. With enough hot peppers, I might even be able to taste it.

That's my phone camera, LC. I've dropped my phone so many times (maybe 50?), I'm surprised it even works. For example, the other day it fell down the stairs. It's also five years old but I have no need to change it as long as I can browse the net without any issues.

I went fishing today. Yadda yadda yadda, were not having fish for dinner. Looks like a pizza night.

Still, taking a q-tip to the little camera hole might help with the blur. That's kinda what it looks like, to me. It's happened to my little phone-size vid camera.

I interpret that as "they all got away." :lol:

What were you fishing for, if I may ask? Trout? Something else?

Small mouth bass, bream, & speck are the most common fish in Cold Creek & Lauderdale River. You can catch carp & gar occasionally but I don't care for them. They get put back.

When I lived in Ft. Lauderdale there was this little hole in the wall pizza joint that had a "Shipwreck Pizza". White sauce and seafood. It was so f'ing good!

Having come from a Chinese household, you begin to tire of the cuisine and even local takes on it wear on you, to the point that for me what seems completely banal to my friends (meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and peas) seems totally exotic to my palette. Thankfully sushi, teppanyaki, and Korean barbecue are still foreign enough for me that it's a joy to go out and eat.

based on the theory that almost anything is improved via deep-frying?  Gromnir is an advocate. heck, you can improve twinkies and ice cream with deep frying.

 

HA! Good Fun!

Gromnir I hope you realize how unhealthy deep-frying anything in oil is for you, especially vegetable oil? If you are going to fry try to use Olive oil

 

You should only occasionally deep-fry food, its much better to steam or bake food. 

 

So now I'm back on my diet because my training session is over in the UK where I couldn't eat healthily. So what that really means is salad for dinner with fish or a meat and no junk food during the day but I normally take breakfast and lunch to work so thats easy to stick to  :geek:

I love Korean BBQ and have even tried to replicate it at home sometimes.

But yeah...I think most of us eventually at least have periods (if not forever) where we become very blase about anything we grew up with/ate a lot of. People would rave about my mother's "whatever" and I'd be all "meh." To this day I rarely eat most chicken dishes or any egg-based dish.

I get that. I will never eat another boiled potato in my life. Roasted, baked, mashed, anything else but boiled. My dad was obsessed with eating meat and potatoes five days a week. I get nauseous at the sight of them now.

deep frying, if done correct, actual gets a bad rep.  is based on simple science, but to do right is requiring artistry. insofar as calories is concerned, fat is fat.  is also more than a few misconceptions regarding poly/mono/un saturated fats. but ultimately, cooking in oil is not markedly less healthy than cooking in air or water IF a person understands the process at work.  simple rule: if steam is escaping food, oil can't simultaneous get into the food.  you deep-fry at the correct temp for the correct duration and you is adding very little fat to your food.  

 

that being said,we ain't gonna even try and boast the health value o' a deep-fried ice cream. a chimichanga ain't gonna be advocated by any health honk anywhere.  heck, you got any idea how much watermelon rind we has mindlessly thrown away over the years?  that stuff is delicious when deep-fried... honest. nevertheless, we ain't advocating deep fried watermelon for patients with heart conditions related to plaque buildup in their arteries.  

 

am actual a bit o' a food snob, and such folks tend to act as if deep-frying is some kinda quaint, plebeian folly. we don't get caught up in culinary or dietary dogma. we eat food for taste at least as much as health.  we get all necessary nutrition we need from food, and we exercise frequent.  am not gonna suffer through our daily diet 'cause o' perceived notions o' the lethality o' pork or beef or frying.  if we die at 78 instead o' 80, then so be it.

 

HA! Good Fun!

I just really wanted a chimichanga

 

It used to be a special treat for me back when I lived in AZ. I would go to a restaurant called El Molinito and order a carne seca chimichanga and get it smothered in cheese and white sauce. That's one of the most delicious heart attacks on the face the earth.

 

I can't get carne seca around here and and I had the steak in the fridge already

 

 

EDIT- The Mexican food in Denver isn't (always) that bad but it's not in the Sonoran style that I prefer so when I get a hankering I usually end up making it myself
