Food Thread: It's Just Food...Make It Fun
— Open Blogger

I will be violating that maxim below the fold, but in the meantime, it really is just food. No need to take it so seriously all the time.

fun food.jpg

Cooking can be fun, and eating can be even more fun. Hell, food shopping can be amusing and a diversion from the grind of the day. We control a hefty portion of our cooking and eating experience, but all too often we (that means, "I") allow it to overwhelm us with crap.

If you don't feel like cooking...then don't. Scour the refrigerator and freezer for leftovers, or just pour yourself a bowl of cereal or eat a handful of radishes or whatever floats your boat.

Over the course of weeks or months most of us get what our bodies need. There is no reason to obsess every single day. In the end, it's just fuel. Sometimes $10 of regular from a generic gas station is all we need, and sometimes a full tank of ethanol-free 100 octane fuel is just what the doctor ordered.

Have I tortured this metaphor enough?

Anyway, what's the goofiest meal you have eaten? Reddi-Whip and frozen orange juice concentrate? Pickles and peanut butter? A butter-stuffed burger on a buttered brioche bun?

******

Yum. Profiteroles. I made them once, and while they aren't difficult I managed to get chocolate everywhere, because there is no neat way to coat them.


******

Yes, this is a typical hysterical Daily Mail article, with lots of awful photos and a few choice quotations. Too fat to stand and their flesh rots while they're alive: The REAL reason America's 'Frankenchickens' have to be washed with chlorine as US industrial farming practices are exposed ahead of possible post-Brexit trade deal But it is an issue, and one that is difficult to deal with absent wholesale changes in food production in America and the rest of the world.

What? The rest of the world? Of course...America is just the fattest target. The Daily Mail doesn't care about farm animal abuse in China or India or Indonesia or, God forbid, Pakistan!

I don't have an answer, other than knowing that the answer most certainly isn't government regulation, of which we have plenty in the food production industries that seem not to be working very well.

And I have said this many times, but I think it bears repeating. While the lives of food (and other) animals should be valued and respected, I'll kill 1,000,000 animals to save the life of one human being. Our lives are more important, and if the price of less starvation and malnutrition is substandard treatment of animals in our food chain, then that is unfortunate but necessary.

******

Here's a good example of why I sometimes despair for America. 6 Reasons Why Vegetable + Canola Oil is Bad For You is a mishmash of poorly researched claims, voodoo food myths, a profound misunderstanding of chemistry, and flat-out falsehoods. But because it hides under the mantle of natural and holistic and non-GMO and a dozen other mantras that we hear chanted by the food crazies, it avoids rational analysis. And because the author "cured" herself with food, and without medicine, we must take her seriously. Except....I don't want to base my treatment on a study with exactly one subject, and that's what she is doing.
******

I could have sworn that I posted this recipe, but I can't find it in any of my searches, so I apologize. It's really good and really messy, especially if you don't like peeling things.

It's originally from Cooking Light magazine, although I have seen versions of it in other places. The next time I make it I think I will skip the chile roasting part and just poke around for canned chiles. And of course use more than one pound of chicken. That's just silly. It makes six servings, and I am a red-blooded American man...I want more than 2 2/3 ounces of chicken!

Chicken Verde Stew with Hominy

  • 2 Anaheim chiles
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 pounds tomatillos
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1 (29-ounce) can golden hominy, rinsed and drained
  • Sour cream
  • Cilantro leaves (optional)

    1. Preheat broiler to high.

    2. Halve, stem, and seed chiles. Place chiles, skin side up, on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray; broil for 5 minutes or until charred. Place chiles in a paper bag; seal. Let stand for 15 minutes. Peel and discard skins. Arrange tomatillos on prepared baking sheet, and broil 14 minutes or until blackened, turning once. Combine the chiles, tomatillos, 1/4 cup cilantro, cumin, and oregano in a blender. Add 1 cup broth; process until smooth.

    3. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 2 teaspoons olive oil; swirl to coat. Add onion, carrot, celery, and bell pepper; sauté for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour; sauté for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic; sauté for 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Place onion mixture in a large bowl.

    4. Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Add 2 teaspoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of chicken; sauté 3 minutes. Add browned chicken to onion mixture. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken and 2 teaspoons oil. Combine remaining 1 cup broth, tomatillo mixture, onion mixture, and hominy in pan over medium-high heat, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Ladle 1 2/3 cups stew into each of 6 bowls, and top each with 1 tablespoon sour cream. Garnish with cilantro, if desired.

20 Made myself some bacon cheeseburgers last night. Dang they were good! Hadn't had any in a while. But one thing I like to do is if cooking more than one then use a different cheese on each one. Say maybe sharp cheddar on one and maybe baby swiss on the other. The other thing I like on the burgers is BBQ sauce. What I really like is the Jack Daniels #7. Really like that one.

I don't know how much truth is in that chicken story, but if it is accurate, it sounds like animal cruelty to me. Living animals with their flesh rotting off them because of the way they are being raised? If it is the government's business to criminalized dog fighting, I don't know why this would not be the government's business.

28 I made dessert nachos when I had a serious carb craving a while ago. There are recipes for it that call for starting with corn tortillas. Had none, but had salted chips. Lightly salted. Melted chocolate chips with some cream for a good consistency. Poured that over the corn chips. Whipped up some cream for the top. I think that was it.

29 bluebell, LOL. Wackiest thing I've eaten? Hmm. Well, I don't have ramen very much anymore, but I've found I like putting chimichurri on it. I also love giardiniera on Chicago chili-cheese dogs. Most of my wacky stuff relates to my choices of condiments.

30 That chicken article sounds like a load of crap to me" It's to keep US chickens out of the Brit market - like we care. And no, canned whole birds isn't common, either. It's a load, and #2,583 why I don't give a rat's butt about the nation formerly known as Great Britain.

38 When I was a kid, my dad would make a snack by putting a spoonful of peanut butter on a slice of american cheese.  I ate it as a kid and don't remember it being awful, but I'm too scared to try it as an adult.

42 America also does not have any rules governing lighting levels in the sheds and, crucially, its farms have no maximum allowed level of ammonia, which indicates how much urine and faecal matter is present. This means there is no limit on how much can fester inside the sheds. I'm pretty sure if one can stand the level of ammonia in a chicken coop and remain standing, then they haven't reached the maximum amount. Holy shiat, anyone who has ever been in a chicken coop knows it's damn near lethal dose. Every single time. Nasty little fvckers. With tasty little eggs.

50 "America is just the fattest target." America is constantly attacked by the Eurotrash chattering classes because: 1) It's big. 2) It's open. 3) It's diverse. 4) There's no downside to it. 5) Bankrupt aristocrats have always sneered at rich tradesmen. Some months ago I saw the San Francisco Symphony was cancelling a scheduled concert in North Carolina. They had just returned from an Asian tour with concerts in Shanghai and Peking.

Unless it's just a chili-cheese dog that you get in Chicago... However, your addition of giardiniera to a chili-cheese dog sounds like a good idea and I will have to try that on my next batch, although my favorite way to use it is on Italian beef sandwiches. Fortunately I always keep a few jars on hand, so I can experiment.

Yup, it's delicious with the giardiniera... please let me know later on how you liked it! Interestingly, I *finally* after decades also recently tried an Italian Beef sandwich at Mustards. I thought it was okay but not that much better than a roast beef sandwich at Arby's. (Sacrilege, I know. Maybe Mustards just doesn't do them as well as their Chicago dogs.) kallisto, yup.

88 I didn't touch cantaloupe for about a decade after that. Even now, I still don't eat it much. .... That reminds me....a few weeks ago there was some Communist talk here (looking at you, qdpsteve, mmhmm) about disliking watermelon, and cantaloupes too. You know it has to be really ripe to be any good, and if you don't like ripe melon well then there is no hope for you anyway. Seriously though,yesterday we finally cut open a personal size watermelon my husband had picked up. It was the yellow flesh variety and I wasn't optimistic it'd be any good. To me it's just a crapshoot sometimes, but this one was really good. Score! I ate so much I'm surprised I haven't been stuck in the bathroom all day.

97 Vendette, back when I was at Long Beach City College in the middle to late 1980s, there was one class-- but I have *no idea* which one it was-- that would take overnight trips to Angeles National Forest. It might have been a fire science or a naturology class. Who knows. Anyway, every semester the profs would have duplicated (I worked in the duplication room) a semi-thick booklet of instructions on how to get through the trip, because some of these kids had literally never camped before. One of their tips was, for breakfast get Quaker instant oatmeal and M&Ms, and be sure to add them to your oatmeal in the morning. Was a way to bribe them into eating their breakfast, I guess.

Posted by: qdpsteve at July 30, 2017 04:16 PM (eMKNe) Vienna Beef is the standard supplier of hot dogs in the Chicagoland area (at least it was when I lived there), and they are very hard to find in other cities except at Chicago-style hot dog joints, so if you can really get a Vienna Beef dog then I would consider that to be an "official" Chicago chili-cheese dog. Regarding Italian beef sandwiches, arguments over which one is better are fierce. Personally I always found the top three (Big Al's, Mr. Beef and Portillo's) to be comparable, although that is heresy to most Chicagoans. However, if you don't live in Chicago, your best bet to get the flavor of a real Italian beef is Portillo's, which has started to franchise outside of the Chicago area so there may be one in your area. If you choose "sweet and hot" as your option you will get sauteed green bell peppers (the most important condiment) and also spicy giardiniera. A great combination.

160 According to an inflation calculator I found, a dollar in 1917 had the same buying power as $20.81 in 2017. So $0.50 in 1917 would be roughly $10.40 today.

175 GOOFIEST MEAL: Out of college but cash-poor, with a roommate who was going to grad school, we were going to have turkey wings and corn for dinner one night. The reason for the turkey wings was that they were on sale. As it turned out the reason they were on sale was because they were bad. Very bad. Stinky, nasty bad. So we threw the turkey wings out and checked the cupboard where we found nothing but coffee and 2 more cans of corn. So, dinner that night was three cans of corn, split two ways.

200 Two more things on vegetable oil:

1:  Author recommends olive oil.

a) Almost all olive oil is controlled by huge European cartels and what gets shipped to the US (whatever the label says) is the low end stuff.

b) Olive oil isn't processed?  It's hand pressed with wooden paddles by Greek maidens?

2:  Had some WallyWorld vegetable oil.  Wondered what kind so I checked the label.

Ingredients:  Soybean oil.

All good, but followed with:

Allergy warning:  May contain soy.

Pure soybean oil *may* contain soy.

230 And yup, Vienna Beef is for me the gold standard of hot dogs. They. Just. Taste. So. Much. Better. Posted by: qdpsteve at July 30, 2017 04:37 PM (eMKNe) Since you are clearly an individual of taste and refinement, let me give you a variation on the venerable chili dog that you might find interesting. Have to make this one at home. First, start with the spice blend for Taco Bell beef that you can find online. Don't buy the pre-mixed packets (if they even sell them anymore). Just look up the recipe, adjust it as necessary (I like mine a bit spicier so I add a bit of habanero powder), add it to your favorite ground beef, simmer and set aside. Then cook your hot dogs. If I am in a hurry I will microwave, but when I have time I like to boil first and then grill. Warm (or toast) a hot dog bun. Place dog in bun, add mexi-beef on top. Sometimes I then put mustard or jalapeno slices on this, although I think I am going to try the giardiniera idea as well. Today, in fact, because I have some leftover beef that I need to use up. It's really not that different from a standard chili dog, except that the beef topping is thicker (and spicier) than that which you get in places like Tommy's.

Anchovies are delicious in everything.  Unless they're too salty, then they must be rinsed in balsamic vinegar.  Mmm.

260 Had the opportunity to try some interesting/expensive booze the last couple of weeks. Here some opinions: 1) Roku Gin - Japanese gin made in Japan with six Japanese botanicals- Cherry blossoms, cherry leaves, 2kinds of green tea, sancho pepper, yuzu- along with the usual gin botanicals. Good stuff. In a G&T, you get juniper along with a touch of yuzu at first, the rest of the ingredients show up as a sort of deep earthy taste in the background and the cherry blossoms come though at the end. Very nice. 2) El Jolgorio Arroqueno Mezcal- You know how food critics talk about this or that mezcal tasting "fruity" when it all it really tastes like is some kind of rubbery plastic? This mescal really is a fruit bomb. Just slaps you around with one fruit after another. A tiny bit of smoke to keep things balanced. Excellent stuff. The best evah. Expensive as hell. So, test drive it in your favorite mescal/tequila bar before committing to a bottle. 3) El Jolgorio Tepeztate Mezcal- Tasty sand(?)- that sort of taste/smell you get into the desert after it rains, grassy flavor, light smoke, sweetness, a bit of tasty plastic. Somehow it all works. Elegant as all get out. A bit rare because it take this agave a long time to mature. Also, expensive as hell. So, test drive it in your favorite mescal/tequila bar before committing to a bottle. 3) Rey Campero Jabali Mezcal- Yummy clay. Sweetness. A cantaloupe/honeydew sort of smell/flavor, a bit smokey, a bit flowery, a weird "deepness" to the flavor where it seems like there's more going on than you think, if that makes sense. 4) La Nina del Mezcal Bacanora- Bacanora is a highly refined/ very pure mezcal. Tastes halfway between a sweet mezcal and the best tequila you've ever tasted. This stuff makes the best margaritas evah. Check them out.

278 Of course the last time I drank tequila I shaved an eyebrow off with a naked Gillette razor blade and thought it was hilarious.

Then the next day I had to decide if I was going to shave the other one and deal with the puzzled looks, or tough it out.  It takes a surprising amount of time for and eyebrow to grow back properly, and I don't drink that stuff any more.

344 I'm sorry but, what, no anchovies? No puking? What's happening to this place?? Posted by: Peaches at July 30, 2017 05:05 PM (EgOr3) Oh...you want puking? Okay. The worst hangover, pukefest I ever endured was sophomore year in college. Some friends and I thought instead of our usual beer, we'd make screwdrivers while waiting for one of the college dances to start. (We were not hard liquor drinkers, as you will see.) We started drinking and playing poker to kill time. The last thing I remember clearly is vomited shooting out of one of my dorm buddy's nose all over the the cards and chips. Then it's all a blur, until I fell off a table at the dance. I got lost inside the dorm and couldn't find the elevator so I walked up 10 flights of stairs. Puking on each floor and passing out on at least three of them. Then a blur then I woke up puking inside the shower in my clothes. I think I had been trying to sober up. Then I went to my room and passed out on my bed and woke up the next morning with my head in a big dried up pool of vomit. Then I got out of bed and vomited in the toilet. Worst headache evah. Took almost two days before I felt normal. And then I ate an anchovy pizza.

I have a friend who drinks absinthe because he heard the wormwood has anti-inflammatory properties, and he is kind of broken up.  Unfortunately the absinth sold in the US does not allow the Thujone in useful amounts, so he started scoring dried wormwood from a connection he has in Europe and macerating it in the absinthe.
(The thujone was supposed to be what made French Bohemians to go insane, and not, for example, the wood alcohol and syphilis - so it was outlawed in the US)

I never tried his absinthe, but he claimed it was really bitter, and there is a reason you drink it through a lump of sugar.

I remember the first appointment with the oncologist after hubby was diagnosed with cancer. The wonderful nurse explained all about chemo, etc. and then finished with nutrition. She told us to NOT believe any well-meaning food advice from friends, such as herbal cures, pot cures, loading up on anti-oxidents (to do what, counteract the chemo?), etc. You could tell they had to deal with patients inquiring about all sorts of wacky ideas on food cures. Amazing what people will believe will work instead of medicine.

But, if you find yourself getting drunk, stop drinking, get a glass of water or a Coke. Then sit down and shut up for a while. You don't want to be the guy stumbling around or making a nuisance of yourself or vomiting. Girls don't like it and your friends don't like it. So, you need to learn what your limit is."

421 They're here, but it's probably because so many Canadians shop in our grocery stores. Or did. The exchange rate might not make much of a deal now.

423 Our favorite breakfast place in Columbus - called 'Skillet'- is one of those farm-to-table deals. It's pricey, we don't eat there a lot, more of a treat place. They made Goetta, somehow got the oats crispy and mixed it with quality house-made sausage. It was fantastic

424 I'm not checking out Widespread Pepe's link, but that's gross. So gross, I'm wondering if Kindltot could knock the rivets out by beating the shovel against Pepe's backside a few times. Jk, of course!

426 So, what is the best way to get those rivets out of the shovel when you are replacing the handle? I could burn the old handle out, but I am worried about destroying the temper. Posted by: Kindltot ----------- Small grinder. Even a Dremel tool will do it. Carefully grind heads away without touching the blade shank.

427 A sub-tender would be fitting.

430 I wouldn't have such antipathy toward professional sports if there weren't such a continuous stream of incestuous deals between the teams and local government to get gazillions of government backed dollars to improve or build new venues. Build your own goddamn stadium on your own dime.

Posted by: Old Blue at July 30, 2017 06:22 PM (FAo3p) You know what? Don't give a fvck. If the NFL wants to die, let them. They could cut these 'athletes' off at the knees and stop this stuff tomorrow. They don't care that their own house is on fire. Nor do I. Let it burn. The millennial left wing 'spergs crouched in their safe spaces, waiting for trigger warnings in every breath aren't going to fill those empty seats.

441 Goofiest meal I ever ate? The Friendly's (tm) grilled-cheese-sandwich burger. (A burger between two whole grilled-cheese sandwiches. Tasted good but gave me indigestion. I can still brag about eating it, though.) Goofiest meal I ever made? Blue Ramen. You make regular ramen and add blue food coloring. Livens up lunch, especially if you have young children.

442 I could really use some suggestions. It's in the mid-90s here and I don't want to bake. I have chicken thighs marinating in the reefer. I could start a fire outside, but the last time I made chicken over a fire in a Dutch oven, the result was unsatisfying. Any ideas?

443 Goofiest thinges I ever ate? Don't recall, but my friends were repulsed when I ate a mound of jellyfish at a Dim Sum meal. Was bland but OK, IIRC. I've eaten just about everything ever put in front of me, given it was bona fide food in someones culture.

445 Sounds very good, except, I never use spray, I use bacon grease.  I never use skinless chicken, all the favor is in the skin. BUT it is YOUR recipe and  I thank for the base.

449 I remember reading about catsup soup in a memoir of the Great Depression. The writer and his buds would go to a restaurant, order an (endless) cup of coffee, sugar and cream the hell out of it to get all the calories they could that way, order a teapot with hot water (for "tea", supposedly) then make ketchup soup with the hot water, ketchup, and free saltines. The waiters knew what exactly they were doing, but had the humanity to pretend they didn't. It was a tough time... no food stamps in those days.

450 Modern industrial vegetable oil is plausibly one reason for the global surge in obesity and type 2 diabetes, for one of the reasons briefly mentioned in the linked article: The huge quantity of omega-6 PUFAs these supply. See, there's a chemical pathway in us that uses EITHER omega 3 or omega 6 PUFAs to produce, in the former case, inflammation resolving compounds or in the latter case inflammation causing compounds(which are part of our immune response). Which ones are made depends on the RATIO of omega 6 to omega 3 PUFAs supplied. That ratio is crazy high in people consuming industrial vegetable oils. This is stuff that belongs in GAINZZZ threads. Go monounsaturated (avocado or olive oil) or saturated (coconut.....milk fat, animal fat) or at least supplement with EPA from a high quality fish oil.

451 horseradish on scrapple pepper on strawberries Mostly, though, I eat dinner for breakfast and breakfast for dinner. Tacos first thing in the morning is my favorite. But then, I get up at 5:30... My rocket fuel: instant coffee dissolved in a little hot water. And a pkg of (any flavor) Carnation instant breakfast. Fill up glass with whole milk (or half and half). Add ice. Holds me for a few hours.
