Pfftttt. Most of those don't even sound that tempting to me even at a reasonable price.
My new roommate (officially set this morning) is le Cordon bleu trained chef. She is working full-time and starting her own catering business as well. Besides the tasty meals I see in my future, I am hoping that she brings some wicked sweet cookware that I can use!
My cooking has been non-existent lately. The past 2-3 weeks I haven't done more than bake chicken to put in my salads. Super wild, that Bonzai.
Tried a stovetop smoker on mushrooms for the first time today. Haven't found any morels, so I settled for store-bought crimini. Mushrooms were stirred in a little olive oil, kosher salt, minced garlic and fresh basil. Green hickory wood from the yard was used for smoke. After smoking, mushrooms were paired with lightly toasted roll drizzled with olive oil. Total vegetarian and very rich tasting. Hickory smoke gives a kinda bacon smell and taste to the 'shrooms. Can't wait to try mushrooms foraged from the wild.
Y'all I had a burger with pimento cheese, green chili salsa, and BBQ Bacon slaw..... it was basically good.
(for you "get fit" threaders, I also had green beans, and no bun on that burger. )[/quothours yesterday in the gorgeous weather, so by the time 8:00 rolled around I was ravenous. I was almost home, but I was in the middle of a small business district. I could have chosen one of two pizza places, Vietnamese, Thai, 2 Chinese, a new Indian place, a dineresque place, a burger joint, Wings Over, two Mexican... all within a 2-3 block radius. I ended up stuffing my face with cheese pizza and a Greek salad. Not the healthiest option, but MAN was it taaasttyyyyyyy.
Just put a 9.5 pound brisket in the oven. Going to have shredded brisket tacos with mango and avocado salsa tonight. Sides will be cheesy scalloped potatoes, grilled asparagus, pasta salad and broccoli. Oh, and gin.
