What's for dinner?
« on: March 04, 2014, 12:00:21 PM »
Figured I should revive the ol' cooking thread so we can talk about all the delicious food we're making.  Delicious, glorious food.

Right now, I'm having some great diced/sauteed onions and mushrooms with tilapia on a bed of white rice.  Simply divine.  Also cheap and easy to make.

I'm going to have some pinto beans that have been slow cooked all day in a crock pot, along with an onion and a few strips of bacon.

Also going to have some green beans, some pork chops, and maybe some hashbrowns.

Pork shoulder cooked with red onions, avocado, tomatoes, garlic and coriander with some rice tonight.
The avocado goes paste-like and turns into a sauce/dressing full of the onions, tomatoes etc.

Mediterranean Platter, double lamb kebab from a Greek restaurant I frequent.  

(BTW, a lot, maybe most "Greek" restaurants in the US are owned and operated by Muslims.  Some of the Mediterranean cuisine overlaps, and they know profits will be better as a Greek restaurant than as a Moroccan, Turkish, Lebanese, etc. restaurant.)

If you've never tried it, I highly recommend going to an Indonesian restaurant and ordering a rice table.  They're fuckin' awesome, and I only get to a good one when I get to the Netherlands.  There are a handful in the US, but the rice table is different (since they don't cater to Indonesians as much here) and I've found only a few here in Vegas and NYC.

I've tried those before, they are very good :) Unfortunately they also cost about 5-10 times as much as me doing some of my own cooking, so they are a rare treat.

Changed my mind and substituted the avocado and tomatoes for mango.

Food. You should all try it sometime.  I know it's expensive,  but the occasional treat is good.   :-$  :P

Filet a chik breast lightly brown in olive oil add a cup of marsala wine, two tablespoons of lime juice, half a cup of chopped onions and tomatoes each, teaspoon of tarragon, parsley, oregano and minced garlic with a healthy pinch of crushed red pepper and let simmer for 20 minutes or so. Spoon over some noodles or fet....zing! Pop! that some good shit there and you get a wonderful zip at the throat from the pepper. You try you like.

Homemade chicken noodle soup. I cook the noodles and the chicken separately (the chicken in water and spices, boiled for thirty minutes, then drained, cooled, and diced), and then saute the vegetables and thyme before adding chicken stock, the chicken, and noodles. Chicken thighs make the best soup in my opinion.
