A Moment of Clarity

Wow... Make the comment that a cupcake label is what made me start paying attention to what I am really eating and what I get (with the exception of a few) is people saying its no bib deal?..

I guess all chefs (excluding the molecular gastronomy folks) always use this stuff when cooking. It sounds real good and tasty... I can see them now stiring it all in... add the flour, now a couple eggs, some high fructose corn syrup, whatever leftover veg and animal fat/oil you have, and uhhh... oh, Calcium Sulfate, Potassium Sorbate and Sorbic Acid which you can pick up at your local science lab.

A Moment of Clarity

The cupcake was just an eye opener for me. I dont even eats sweets - What seeing it did make me start doing is reading all lables. Pick any processed food. Peanut butter, ketchup, cereal, pasta, spaghetti sauce, how oil is made... all of it is kind of scary. Fresh is the only way for me. I never thought I'd say it... but organic.

I have been converted

Butternut squash?

I have zucchini out the rear... I am going to start freezing it very soon. Cucumbers are here also.

Butternut squash?

Thanks for the ideas... freakishly... yes - heat index up to 109 today.

Poll: Can you cook without salt?

:)

Not pointless... just not as happy.

Do good spatulas still exist?

Pampered Chef.... best one I have ever owned, period.

Help! I oversalted my chili!

Its a chemical thing.

When something is too salty you add sugar and lemon

When something is too sweet you add salt and lemon

Its that simple.

What's your food therapy?

BEER... I like shopping for strange beers and then coming home and cooking somethin complicated while I drink.

:)

The Almighty Chicken Wing - nothing without the sauce

Love Thai... Good idea. Time to swing by the Asian market.

Hate is a strong word by the way... I mean, it is fried and it does have my fav seasoning... salt. :)

100 (okay, 50) Things Restaurant Staffers Should Never Do

Does everyone really think about all of these things while you are eating out? Does all this stuff really cross your mind as you are being served?

100 (okay, 50) Things Restaurant Staffers Should Never Do

I agree. I always ask them what they like and what to avoid. Most of them will tell you in a second.

100 (okay, 50) Things Restaurant Staffers Should Never Do

Well... I don't disagree with a few of these. The person who wrote this sounds annoying, uptight and boring as hell. Again, I am not saying that I don’t agree on a few of these but I definitely think they are getting carried away.

In a food slump...

I like the ideas... I mean... how long can a foodie really not cook? I havent been out in a while. I will try the service thing. There is a nice place here in town called 5 Sences... I think I will go and get served... I am going to go... ask for the best waiter,,, ask to speak to the chef, and simply say I am not in a hurry, I dont want a menu, I just want to be awakened.

RE: Blood Sausage?

It was German. I was expecting a heavy metalic dry mess... It was neither. I have been converted. Love it.

@Kerosena you are right. The name is what does it. It just doesn't sound good... but... it's awsome!


What other ways should I try it? Sandwich sounds good... how do you suggest?

Beer: A medical miracle tonic?

@GirlFromJetCity.... Are you serious? That is the coolest thing I have heard today.

The smell of warm beer all steamy in the shower... yummy. Do you smell like a bar after?

Spam: Better than we give it credit for?

This makes my hungry...

Poached stuffed chicken breast with baby asparagus with soy cilantro sauce:

Dice/chop and mix spam, onion, garlic, ginger, green onion, black pepper, fresh chili, cilantro, and an egg yolk (or egg) to bind. Butterfly and flatten breast, spread out stuffing mix, roll tightly in plastic wrap or tinfoil or tie with string; poach until just done in water with bit of soy sauce, lemon/lime juice, clove of garlic, bit of ginger. Slice each breast into about six rounds each at a slight diagonal.

Present on your fancy service with steamed rice, and blanched and chilled young asparagus. Top with a light drizzle of a sauce of soy sauce, bit of toasted sesame oil, lime juice, chopped cilantro and (red) chili.

Don't mention the spam and no one will ever know. Hawai'i - Asian - French fusion

Poached stuffed chicken breast with baby asparagus with soy cilantro sauce...
Done.

Blood Sausage?

Sweet reduction? Like what?

Perfect cocktail for a BLT?

OK... the verdict is in. Bloody Marys DO go good with a BLT. I think I will have it for breakfast tomorrow again.

:P

Awkward Eating

Quit worrying… It’s none of anyone’s business what or when you need to eat. If they have a problem with it… its exactly that… their problem.

I have been in a situation several times where I am eating something somewhere and it crosses my mind… are people looking at me like I am some kind of animal, are they disgusted, are they…

Then I stop and realize… I don’t give a crap. This is good. I am hungry. They can all think what they want to. Yum yum grumble, grumble, gnaw, growl, yum yum.
