Writer's Block: Have a drink on me [Mar. 17th, 2011|07:57 pm]

If you were going to make a signature drink that was named after you, what would you put in it?

bodies, quicklime, and coconut extract.

But in the din of the age of algorithm
walking computations
airwaves, soundwaves, lightwaves
decisions based on enconomy
and calories from fat

we are more than we have even been:

It is friday, noon-thiry, and I'm ready for a beer. Or eight.

Yes, the week was crazy insane. This morning, for a whiel, I was firmly convinced it was Thursday. My head is dizzy from the antibiotics.
I'm not bring the stuff I planned on to ConBust. But I think that's okay. There was a severe time issue, as well as a knowing your audience issue. It is what it is, yeah? There will be a next time.

Tonight I'm hoping for a slower night than the ones I've had in for.ever, making dinner, beering, and maybe recruiting alex to help me finish a couple of things.

One of the sadder things about the week is that I've been left with no will/inclination to dress up for this. Enh. We'll see.

Wish the luck, see you there.

Food [Mar. 16th, 2010|12:16 pm]

(Writing down for future reference before I forget)


Rice & Soy Chorizo

Cooked 2c. brown rice in veg broth
Sauteed once diced onion and one diced green pepper in oil
Added one package Trader Joe's soy chorizo
One can of diced tomatoes
Mixed in rice and fried for a couple minutes

A little wet- could drain out some of the tomato juice next time
makes a lot. use a giant pan.
good plain or with a little cheese or sour cream. or probably guacamole.
though about adding beans. decided against.


Meat Pies

Filling (made yesterday)

2 small diced onions
2 diced carrots
3ish finely grated red potatoes
1lb dark turkey
1lb ground beef
sage, salt, pepper, dill (thyme? rosemary? i forgot)
garlic powder because i forgot garlic

Had to use a lot of salt. Will mix in a small container of sour cream and some grated cheddar before using the filling tonight. fresh herbs would be really nice.

Dough (not done yet)

1/2c. shortening
1 1/2c. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2c. cold water

Not sure how much this makes, or how many batches I will have to make to use all the filling.
Not sure how long to bake. Guessing 425 for 20ish minutes?

Hoping to bake a few tonight, but mostly hoping that this is something that freezes well. Slightly worried about the sour cream in the filling, but it does need it. Maybe I could use a cream of something soup instead? Looking for something I can make and freeze in single servings for quick meals.

Does one need to thaw frozen dough before baking?

(EDIT: relative success. Nest time, cream of something soup insted of sour cream. Maybe some shredded cabbage in addition to/instead of potatoes. 425 20 min is good. Would be really good w/ gravy over. slightly bland. potatoes arent really adding anything.)

crust x4 + filling made maybe 2doz? with filling to spare.

Writer's Block: Wake up and smell the coffee [Feb. 9th, 2010|03:20 pm]

Given the choice, would you rather sleep in or eat a delicious breakfast? Is there any food you love so much that you'd wake up at dawn or travel a great distance just to eat it?

Much much much rather sleep in. Breakfast is my least favorite meal, and I will almost never get up specifically to cook breakfast. Toss something in the toaster on my way out the door? Sure. Nuke some leftovers if I have a sec? Probably.
Whip up some eggs and bacon? Go fuck yourself.

If there are multiple people I'm much more likely to do actual cooking. But in general, it happens almost never. Pancakes for dinner, on the other hand...

I do actually love breakfast food, though. I love diners where I can get breakfast at any time of day. I have never met another human being that loves corned beef hash as much as I do.

I would totally travel a great distance for food, but in truth I think it'd be more about the adventure than the meal. There are a darn lots of foods that I love immensely, but most are readily accesible and I can make anything that isn't.

If for some reason there was a food I couldn't make, yeah, I'd travel for it. But again, half of the appeal is the adventure.
