What you having for dinner tonight?


Recommended Posts

Went out to a place called Sushi Den and as you can probably already guess I got chicken fried steak

 

No, I lied. I got sushi but all I really want is a chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes smothered in too much gravy

 

For dessert I candied some kumquats and sliced kiwi and mango (and I think half a honeydew*) and it was edible but I still crave the delicious flavor of chicken fried steak

 

 

*it the night grew fuzzy towards the end as I was suffering from chicken fried steak withdrawals 

 

I don't think I've ever eaten chicken fried steak. You'll have to direct me to a good one if we ever meet.

I love sushi and sashimi, I don't love how expensive it is.  If it was more reasonably priced, I would eat it regularly.

 

As it is, more often than not, on the few occasions I do dine out (I cook the vast majority of the time), I'll generally rather drop a tenner (yes, I am using British slang to mean $10) for a big ol' helping of Jamaican comfort food that will last me the whole day, rather than almost twice that for barely a meal's worth of sushi or sashimi.

Last night I consumed brownies, tacos, vodka, whiskey, rum, stout, orange juice, and possibly some chips. Going to make Chicken and Waffles for breakfast when I have the energy.

I could send you a recipe. If you can get your hands on venison, it isn't hard to do.

It's the little things that keep me putting one foot in front of the other--like new Honey-Comb cereal with Twisted Marshmallows. Oh yeah, it's in the cupboard right now, fresh, unopened, waiting ...

Yesterday I was in the mood for sushi. But had better idea. 

 

Found good fishmongers, bought fresh salmon steak. Took slamon steak home, armed self with sharp knife, and fork. Ate salmon raw with plain brown rice. Soy sauce, black pepper, lemon.

 

Cost: £5.50 for about 4 times more raw fish goodness than I'd have got in a sushi box.

Took out Le Grille and had some fun. My totally manly teflon spatula came to good use. Pork, hot dogs, kebab and whatnot. Some Coca Cola, beers and potato salad to top things off.

Speaking of barbecue equipment, why are stores only stocking those stupid silicon tipped barbecue tongs?

Huh. Barbecued some summer chinook earlier. Funny.

Because you don't live in AMERICA.

I am making myself homemade burgers for lunch, I like making my own hamburgers because I can experiment with toppings and the meat, like adding Veal, content of the actual burger :dancing:

Tonight I'm having a Dutch sausage with green salad and avocado pear. Healthy and tasty

Couldn't get my preferred takeaway last night so we went to a kebab place. I must be growing up, because I just couldn't finish the damn thing.

 

What I need to do is lay in canned goods to make up good food if same arises again.

Put some chicken breast in the slow cooker about 5 hours ago, covered with water, and added taco seasonings.  I just shredded the chicken with a pair of forks (after cooking for 5 hours it was super easy to shred).  I'm going to let it cook for another 3 hours.  In about an hour I'm gonna chop up some green peppers and onions and toss them in with the chicken, with a half hour to go I'm going to cook up some rice, then it's chicken burrito time.

Oxtail soup. This time cut the fat off first and rendered it down some, then removed from the saucepan. Added trimmed chunks of tail, red pepper, vegetable marrow, chicken stock cubes, coriander seed, black pepper. Much nicer overall, I'm ashamed to say.

Breakfasted on whole pan-fried gurnard. Lemon pepper, olive oil. Toasted bagels.

 

First time I've cooked this fish. Shallow oil, warmed the pepper through before starting the fish. Toasted both sides, then covered the pan with a lid to steam-fry. Total cook about 20 minutes, although eaten out of the pan still on the heat, sizzling oil mopped up with the bagels.

 

Taste and texture of the flesh superb. Delicate, but with plenty more flavour than, say cod. Not much meat on the wee fellah. Feel full, but if I were serving at dinner I'd leave it as a discrete fish course, not a main.

 

Black coffee.

I call it the caveman-soup because its so simple, healthy and effective. Its lots of leek, potatoes, carrots, parsley and parsley root crudely cut to roughly equally sized pieces and cooked for 21 minutes in water. - No stock cubes!-

There is only two things to consider: don't cook it to death or all the vitamins will be gone and the leek must not be cooked for longer than 10 minutes or it will completely disintegrate. 

 

Not a masterpiece but it definitely gets the job done. Plus its very tasty.

Its also a perfect auxiliary meal for those who do lots of sports, it replaces tons of the minerals you lose through sweating.

Why no stock cubes? Can you not get good ones in Austria?
