    No sorry. I'm not a calorie counter. It was one of those "what do I have left in my fridge/cupboards" experiments. Here's the ingredients sans measurements, because I'm not much of a measuring person either:

    Risotto: Garlic/basil infused olive oil, arborio rice, garlic, shallots, homemade chicken stock, tumeric, medium curry powder, chili powder, small amount of butter, salt and pepper. The yogurt is 9% greek president's choice from superstore that comes with this side container of fig sauce which I used for the meat. I would have preferred a normal/less fat yogurt, but it was the only plain yogurt I had and it made me commit to a fig sauce which worked out awesome.

    Pork/Carrots/Apples: Seasoned pork chops from Costco. Seared the outside in a pan. Added the carrots, apples, salt, pepper and a touch of the chicken stock to deglaze and put it in the oven to finish. I had the carrots simmering i the chicken stock I used in for the risotto so that they would be partially cooked enough to finish in the oven with the pork. Once the pork was done I pulled the pan out of the oven and let the meat rest on the side. Then to the deglazed pan with the apples and carrots I added a pinch of brown sugar, cayenne, the fig sauce that came with the yogurt and a touch of butter.

    Anyone have a good suggestion for a meal? I'm on my own for the next week, which means I can experiment with my cooking without worrying about other peoples' tastes.

    Does the climate make a difference next week: ie: I guess it will just be hot and dry there right, so no stews or soups? I keep looking up stuff I am considering making and it says don't make on a cloudy or humid day. What the hell do peeps in Seattle make.

    There's a storm coming in apparently so it's been getting up to the mid 50s. Might have snow in the next few days, but I am planning on making my gumbo for some friends so I've already got one soup on tap.

    OK so not so much cooking but you might buy these (any food store) for your gumbo. You can have everything made b4 you need it, then deep fry the dough, have everyone put on their own powder sugar (if you have one of those old school salt shakers, it's perfect), a frothy cup of coffee and relax ......

    No I haven't made a homemade chicken salad before but one thing I have learned from shredding chicken for other recipes is that boiled chicken is so much easier to shred then baked chicken. You probably already knew that though.

    Our friend what lives in New Orleans brought us those exact Cafe du Monde items. And Tiffany brought me a coffee mug from there when she last visited.

    We should make some beignets.

    I really thought I bought those things somewhere besides NOLA, but maybe not.
    So I got hungry for red beans and rice. Got lazy and didn't make fresh but it was super cheap.
    Red Beans and Rice with Andouille Sausage
    Sourdough Bread with butter
    Coconut Whipped Cream with Semi-Sweet Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas, (they are hard to see), sprinkle of unsweetened chocolate...
    Cup of espresso
    All this cost less than $1.25 per person. Cheaper than a McDonald's cheapest burger and I guess a cup of water .... cr****

    We only get it at the International market here. If you have a foreign focused grocery store you should try there. I love it as well.

    I am cooking rabbit stew today for the first time ever. Not sure why I haven't tried it at home before since I like the taste. I was in my local grocery market the other day and saw them in the freezer. It wasn't particulary cheap for a whole one but I got it and it's in the slow cooker as we speak! Following this recipe here

    http://australian.food.com/recipe/cr...it-stew-192100

    If I can be arsed, I'll post some pics later. First time though, so there's a possibility the rabbit will still win

    We got 7 inches of snow last night, it's still spitting flurries. Sounds like a good night to make homemade lasagna.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Go to foodandwine.com. Go to the recipe search page. There are all sorts of search filters you can set -- cuisine, ingredients, style, fast, make ahead, etc etc. play with that and see what grabs your attention.

    The statement stands. An item's existence within a given sphere of reality extends to the edge of that sphere and exists in the same form across the entire breadth whether or not a given reference point observes it at close range. We don't have your wife in Oregon, but she still exists here.

    You underestimate the smallness of my town. We have one large grocery store and two small, locally owned ones. There's not much in the way of variety.

    Also the apartment smells so good right now. I roasted the bones from the short ribs, drained the fat to save for later and then lightly roasted some aromatics in the pan. The rib bones have been simmering for well over an hour now and the vegetables have been added in.

    Roasted short rib bones in cold water:


    And I just remembered that I wanted to use some short rib meat in chili which means I am going to get to do this again sometime soon!


    Also Bryan make some French onion soup.

    First night of Passover means matzo ball soup and matzo pizza for a week (really means until we run out of matzo which at the rate we eat it isn't long). I'm not even going to lie, I love this time of year food wise.
