Beef stew. Tasty, done in a large enough stockpot to last for days, and has the advantage of getting all the work out of the way in the morning so it can simmer for six or seven hours. Also a good lesson in the judicious use of stronger seasonings - a quarter-teaspoon of ground cloves for the whole batch is just about right.

Salad made from baby spinach, sweet Nantes carrots, dried blueberries, and candied walnuts with raspberry vinaigrette dressing, followed by...


...baked salmon marinated in Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce, topped with mayonnaise and minced onion flakes on a bed of white rice. Yum!

I never actually watch the Super Bowl, but I like to use it as an excuse to eat junk anyway!

yesterday we took some little pre-made pizza crusts and topped them with mozzarella, gorgonzola, tomato basil feta, olive oil, and minced shallots. it was quite pungent and also wonderful.

then I ate a lot of chips and dip and made myself sick! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

Couscous with mushrooms and spinach with a bit of lime for acidity, topped with miso-glazed chicken breasts. Nice.

(Don't know if that would be my Hell's Kitchen signature dish; it's too sweet for Ramsay. More likely spice-rubbed pork tenderloin, my frozen stash of which is running low far too early this year.)

I mixed one of those bottled Indian sauces with some peas, potatos, and onions, threw it in the oven, and had something really tasty 45 minutes later.

Hokey damn - that salad in particular looked amazing Chu.

I'm sick right now, so my desire to cook has really been shot to hell, but for the Superbowl a buddy of mine smoked 60+pounds of pork for about 14-16 hours. Obviously, not my cooking but holy shit was that a feed.

There were 40 people at the party - I'd hate you to think it was just me and him eating that much meat.

Actually, I used some leftovers to make a black bean, corn, potato and pulled pork frittata - my first time making one. It turned out pretty well, but it was kind of last minute, so I didn't have time to get together any accoutrements. I didn't even have any salsa, which I think it would have benefited greatly from. Alas.

Today was "combine all the stuff in the fridge that has been open too long" day.

Came out really well. I had about half a box of Trader Joe's tomato soup and put that in a casserole dish, added four chicken breasts that I haven't had time to grill over the last few days, dumped in what was left of a container of feta cheese and threw in some kinda dried up turkey pepperoni which added nice spice to it.

Cooked it at 350 for about an hour, turning the chicken over and mixing things in the process twice.

Definitely heavier than what I usually I eat, but I've been so freaking cold lately it was kind of nice to eat something like this.

Amerikan Psuedo-Stir Fry Meal
  • White rice mixed w/ coconut milk
  • Mixed veggies w/ Teriyaki sauce
  • Scrambled eggs w/ mixed veggies
  • Tea w/ honey

Worst mistake was putting soy sauce on the rice. Tasted good but it went down my intestines like razor blades.

Pseudo-Yaki Udon:

Cook some hot Italian sausage in a pan (half a cup of water, a little bit of oil, medium heat, slap a lid on it and come back when the water's evaporated and then brown it to your liking), take it out of the pan to rest, then slice it into pieces. Saute some sliced ginger and garlic with a bunch of napa cabbage in the pan, add the sliced sausage and rinsed cooked linguine into the pan, with a few splashes of soy sauce. (I added some sweet chili sauce, mainly for the sugar content, but it came out too spicy -- in the future a tiny bit of sugar or mirin would suffice, or just using regular sausage) Toss it together until everything's heated through. Garnish with chopped green onions. Voila!

I know, you're thinking "Italian sausage in Asian food? Whaaa?" but I say that star anise is a component of Chinese five spice powder, and anise seed is the primary flavoring in Italian sausage, so it works.

Despite being a culinary student, I never have the time to cook at home, and my performance, skills, and knowledge in the classroom suffers for it. Typically, my most elegant meal is Spam, rice, and sauteed veggies. I mean, don't mistake me, it's a darn fine meal and I love it, but it doesn't exactly flex any culinary muscles.

I can make a mean burre blanc, though.

Also, shivam officially gets vegetarian eating. If I have gotten nothing else out of food school, it's finding out that I could so do the vegetarian thing if I had any inclination to.

I made Alton Brown's Steel Cut Oats, with a minor variation.

The recipie calls for;
1 cup steel cut irish oatmeal
4 cups water
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup dried figs
1/4 cup half and half.

Combine and and stick in a slow cooker for 8 hours or so on low.

Where I diverged was on the figs. A family member* wasn't too keen on them asked that we use dried apricots instead. As a result the final product was a bit softer, thanks to the apricots increased moisture. Also,they all but disintergrated into the mixture. Overall it was tangy success. I'd still like to try with the figs though...

*same person had one serving and then politely refused to partake of any more...

Tonight's menu: tortilla soup!


Ingredients: celery, green bell pepper, onion, grilled chicken strips, diced tomatoes (canned), hominy (canned), mild diced green peppers (canned), and chicken broth.


Topped with shredded "Mexican" cheese (cheddar works too) and cilantro...


...and crushed tortilla chips. Delicious!

Doh, I forgot to take a picture of my soup tonight.

I don't really go for instant ramen anymore, I make my "instant homemade ramen", with the "better than bouillon" stuff in a jar, and angel hair pasta. Seasoned with ginger, soy sauce, a sprinkle of sugar and some sake or mirin if I have it. Still tons of salt, but no MSG, and it's better quality, and still cheap!

As a quick light dinner tonight, I made a big pot of that. I sauteed grated garlic and ginger in a little bit of oil before adding the water, and simmered sliced carrots, onion and napa cabbage in the broth (adding the white of the cabbage a few minutes before serving, and the leafy parts at the last minute so they didn't overcook). I cooked the angel hair separately and rinsed it so it wouldn't get mushy sitting in the pot as it's being served. A few spoons of soy sauce, and I was good to go!

we had some leftover chicken in the fridge, so I made chicken salad for the first time in years! then I realized we also had some leftover crumbled gorgonzola, so I dumped that in too with a little bit of minced garlic and it graduated to Gourmet Chicken Salad.

I ate it on toast, as Talking Time would have wanted.

I made the usual pasta: low fat ground turkey browned over a skillet, vodka tomato sauce, and mixed vegetables over rotini with garlic bread on the side. Nothing spectacular, but absolutely delicious and quite filling. Yay!

Oh, and last night I made nachos...my secret special thing being my dip, with consists of salsa and cottage cheese mixed together (delicious and healthier and more proteinous than the traditional salsa + sour cream).

Also, all these posts with pictures...I miss my camera so much, my brother has had it for the last 4 months over in England, and I can't wait to have it back in another 6 weeks.

I really should've taken a picture of the Bacon, Spinach and Tomato sandwich sister made. The giant ciabatta loaf she used was gorgeous enough on its own. Wait, I have the other half of the loaf to take a picture of! Just imagine this as as BST:



I was originally planning on making Singapore Noodles, but hey, gotta eat the bread while it's fresh. I told my sister this, and she said "We had noodles last night, I don't come from people who have noodles everyday." "Yeah, you're bread people." "We come from the same people!" At that point I felt it was silly to say I must be a reincarnated Japanese person because I could eat rice and noodles every day.
