Tonight I made inside-out burgers (stuffed basically, with bacon, cheese and sauteed mushrooms) and homemade scalloped potatoes with corn & Ortega chilis thrown in. It was quite good. Not pretty enough for a picture though.
Chuck Norris has the best poker face of all time. It helped him win the 1983 World Series of Poker, despite having in his hand a Joker, a 6 of Clubs, a Get Out of Jail Free Monopoly Card, his drivers license, and a Green Uno Card.
Something about you have to make sure to cut against the 'grain' of the fish, and in one fluid motion. If you use more than 1 motion your edges won't be totally clean edges like you get in a sushi restaurant. I had a chunk of fatty tuna that I cut incorrectly and it just fell apart on me (plus it wasn't cold enough when I cut it which didn't help matters) so I ended up cubing it all up, spicing it and making spicy tuna rolls. Tastes just as good/if not better, but there's something about putting a slab of beautiful purple tuna on a little bed of rice.
yea i must have seen it on one of the food channels, they also say you need to do it in one motion so the "toxins" of the knife won't get on the tuna .... calmer your food looks great ........ i am going to cook a london broil tomorrow and not sure what i want to do .... cr****
Reviving this thread. Last weekend I made a pot of pasta sauce (about 6 quarts) and froze it. I found a new trick - when I've made sauce in the past it's always tasted good, but the acidity of it was a bit much. To knock the acidity down, I added a teaspoon of backing soda. Voila! No more acidity, but the flavor remains so long as you don't add too much.
I made Chimmichuri Salmon, Chimmichuri rice, and some steamed broccoli for the GF and I last night. It turned out great...I'm at work and too busy to post the how to, but i'll come back and edit it later with some details.

Yesterday I made a pot of beef & barley soup. We're going to have some soon for lunch today. I got 4 3-serving bags for freezing (you don't put barley in those....it turns mushy) and what we'll have for lunch. Total cost = $15.
3 Cheers for this thread!!! I love to cook as well, my favorite celebrity cehf is Bobby flay even though from what some people on here say he is an asshole im ok with it cuz the dude can f*ckin cooK! & Top Chef has officially passed Iron Chef in my book as the best cooking show, i love me some Iron Chef but the challenges and the judges they have on Top Chef are downright Amazing!
I need to go grocery shopping, I have a craving for Chili Rellenos but don't want to go through the whole process of grilling the chilis, pealing them, de-seeding them, stuffing them and then frying them and making the sauce and so on. So I am thinking I might try to find a good Chili Relleno Casserole idea. Gotta love the internet, I am sure I can find something.
When I was in Venice Beach we ended up at this local little bar/restaraunt and had bacon wrapped prawns, they stuffed the prawns with a goat cheese/chive mixture and then wrapped them in bacon and grilled them, then had this sauce drizzled over the top. I can't remember what they were called on the menu but my girlfriend and I renamed them "orgasmic shrimp". Everything tastes better with bacon wrapped around it.
A really good appetizer that I have made before is bacon wrapped jalepeno poppers. You take a jalepeno, slice it in half long ways, seed it and put cream cheese in it, then wrap thick sliced maple bacon around it and grill it. OK damnit, the cup of soup i had for lunch is not working for me right now, I want some bacon wrapped food.
I went grocery shopping, spent $240, bought everything I need for the chili relleno caserole, including the evaporated milk the recipe called for which took me forever to find, and then got home and decided I am too tired to cook. So I am drinking a bottle of wine instead. They had a great price on beef roasts too, I got 4 good sized roasts for $20, SWEET. Tomorrow I am going to put a roast in the crockpot for some shreaded beef burros and put another in the oven for roast beef sandwiches.
