Not enough pork in your dinner, Terez. You should have fried a pork chop wrapped in proscutto in the bacon/ham drippings.

Well, I was cooking for me and my mom and there were only 4 pieces of bacon, and since we've been living off grilled cheese sandwiches (the real kind!) for a couple of days now, I figured we needed some more meat, and all we had was ham - the thin-sliced deli kind that's not really appropriate for anything but sandwiches...unless you cook it in bacon grease. :D

Oh wait. There were only 4 pieces. So, you fried the eggs and tater tots in butter, right?

Tater tots in olive oil, eggs in butter. And the reason why is because some things would have gotten cold if I'd cooked everything in the bacon grease...

Chimay is pretty good...though it is an acquired taste. Were you drinking the Grand Reserve? or one of the ones that's only $10 a bottle instead? All 3 that I've had are pretty good.

Grand reserve...I didn't know they made a $10 bottle.

IIRC, they have the blue label one, the red label one, and the cream/white label one. I can't recall which is which but the Grand is the highest and the other two are slightly cheaper. I used to get it occasionally at the speciality distributer that was down the street from my old place. They had an awesome selection of foreign beers, craft brews and other micro brews there.

I'm still on a Stout kick right now so if I'm drinking beer its usually Murphy's Stout (my personal favorite)

Must be like the McRibb sandwich...that thing was great until they cancelled it...though apparently its still available almost anywhere in the Deep South/Texas. Unfair.

My most annoying moment was when I went through a BK drivethrough about a year back and ordered an Enormous breakfast sandwich only to be told "we don't carry that anymore". The Enormous and Meatnormous were both fantastic breakfast sandwiches and the only reason I ever went to BK. Now, if I want fastfood breakfast, I get a Mcdonalds Steak Egg and Cheese Bagel...a decent sandwich but one that is inferior to the greatness that was the Enormous.

They took it off the menu here, too, dammit. That was one of my only reasons for going to Taco Hell. Though, I would never have thought of going to Taco Bell because I was sick. It's vice versa, I'd say.

We had Indian take out last night:

Chicken makhani (chicken cooked in a delicious butter-cream sauce)
Navaratan Koorma (something like nine different vegetables cooked in a yogurt sauce)
...plus pakoras and naan.

Great food, but you always feel a little sick and guilty afterwards.

If I go to taco bell, I get soft tacos supreme, or nachos bell grande, or a chicken quesadilla. It's not bad, really. Every now and then, though, I get nasty tomatoes or something. But it's fast, cheap food - those people don't make enough money for me to expect perfection.

One of the cool things about the PNW (besides the fact I live here ;) ) is super cheap seafood. We got half a dozen huge miyagi oysters and slapped them on the grill as an appetizer before indulging in some grilled burgers and fresh cucumbers.

Oysters with rooster sauce are awesome, may I say?

Tonight depends on what the produce delivery inspires me to do.

I much prefer a good filet over either. I'd rather have a 6-8 oz filet over a 12-16 oz strip steak/ribeye.

Though the Strip steaks I cooked were pretty good 1"+ thick ones and were quite tender since I cooked them a hair under Medium...Mmmm.

One of the cool things about the PNW (besides the fact I live here ;) ) is super cheap seafood.

Two more things I remember fondly from my days there.....Ballard Docks, during salmon season, 5am on Thursdays - you could go down there & buy salmon from the guy or gal who caught it, right off the boat.

Second, one word - geoduck. Would you believe it makes great sashimi? But the usual methods work well too. Only problem, a counter full of geoduck is a sight from which you want to avert children's eyes. Or if you have large stores of patience, you could go to a good beach - Vashon Island used to be pretty good - and dig those suckers up. And dig. and dig.

Terez
07-16-2009, 11:25 AM

Well duh. But strips and ribeyes generally cost about the same per oz. so it's a better comparison. You're getting into apples/oranges territory.

But I guess the 'leaner' bit is a reason. I try not to give a shit about such things.

Ahh, but if you're only getting a 6 oz filet instead of a 16 oz Strip/Ribeye, the cost equals out essentially.

Terez, once again, you can be, and are, wrong.

The New York Strip is the ultimate cut of beef. It's leaner than a ribeye, with less marbling, but still maintains a hearty, robust flavor.

Davian93

I'd rather have a great tasting filet than a merely above-average tasting Strip. When I went to the store last night, they were out of filets so I sacrificed with good strip steaks...

Besides, you have sides with the meal anyway, and in my case usually a salad before the main course.

And good strip steak (wet aged) is fantastic...better than good ribeye IMHO.

I try to make somewhat healthy salads but I am under no misimpression that a salad is really a "healthy" snack.

My typical pre-dinner salad course will consist of

spinach or arugula (sometimes both)
alfalfa sprouts
cucumbers (sliced)
tomatoes (either cherry or one whole diced tomato)
sliced mushrooms
sharp cheddar (the bag kind you get at the grocery store)
parmesan cheese
hard-boiled eggs (if I have time/motivation to boil them)

I usually use either a Balsamic type dressing or sometimes one of those Oriental type specialty flavors...can't think of it as my brain is fried right now.

I like a strip, porterhouse, blade, and ribeye, in that order pretty much. I like a good filet now and then but I'll go for the others first normally. On special occasions I get prime rib, but I like my steaks rare and usually prime rib is hard to get rare and tender without most of it being fat...not that I don't like the fat (I eat it...my wife thinks I'm nasty) but I ordered meat and thats what I want the most.

I loved geoduck both times I ate it. Once it was grilled with an avacado sauce and once it was fried like calamari.

Best bisquits are at Popeyes...When I was at an overseas location the local PX shed had a Burgerking/Popeyes and they used the Popeyes bisquits for the breakfast sandwiches instead of the standard BK ones...spectacular bisquits. The key to bisquits is to never short on the butter and shortening and to have them fresh.

Frankly I think the most intimidating chef there might be Matsaharu Morimoto but when I win the lottery, he'll be flown in to make sushi for the party ;)

Besides, we all know that the older women are the essential competitors in Battle: Biscuit because who makes better biscuits than your granny? (and most women I know that are closer to my age find them too much work. Apparently a pastry blender's a bit scary. As for me, I'm forbidden to use a rolling pin because it makes me cuss too much. Biscuits are normally okay, but when it comes to sugar cookies it gets colorful - and don't even get me started on lefse)

Here's how you do it... First you open the can. Then you whack it on the counter...

Yeah, but that's just pillsbury crap. I'm talking genuine Southern biscuits.

The South will rise again, SP?
Well, are we talking biscuits, or yeast rolls?

Here:

Make a normal cinnamon roll recipe, and once you get it in the oven...

Instead of a regular powdered sugar glaze, use cream cheese to make a frosting. I don't have the exact measurements at work, but it's pretty easy.

Dump two 8 oz cream cheese boxes (softened to room temperature) into your mixer and beat them on medium till they're creamy.

Mix in a teaspoon of vanilla.

Turn down the mixer, and add confectioner's sugar by the half cup until it reaches the desired consistency and sweetness.

Let the rolls sit for a few minutes out of the oven, then spread the frosting mix on while still warm.

FAQ, I'm getting hungry now.

Dude. Sounds delicious! Maybe I will use Pillsbury cinnamon rolls? ;)

I honestly wonder if buttermilk isn't the key to great biscuits. I shall have to try.

Pillsbury, Ishara? Really? Did your local Timmy's close? Why bake them yourself (my thing with baking my own treats is that then there are more than one for me to eat. This is bad.)

Ewww. No.

Tim Horton's is good for coffee and donuts. I do not go to Timmy's for my other bakery needs. In fact, I think I will make my own a la Pioneer Woman (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/06/cinammon_rolls_/). Nom.

You are evil. Now I want to make those too. Bring me a pan full and a cup of Timmy's. In exchange I will give you two GGK books, a steak dinner and my undying gratitude.

I like it fine enough. I had romaine, but Marie doesn't like it. ;)

Well, I'll eat it if there's no other option...I just hate those big ribs in the romaine. :) Like, right now I'm having a roast beef sandwich with blue cheese spread on ciabatta (mmm), with tomatoes, red onions, and romaine. So I opened up the sandwich and broke the ribs off the romaine and put the leafy parts back on...

Anyway, we had some yummy crab dip in Charleston, too. Nom. :)
