Any food you can make heart shaped.  biatches love hearts for some reason.

We're making corndogs tonight because they're my favorite. Might not seem romantic to anyone else, but that's what I love. Plus, it's sort of like foreplay when he watches me deep throat that dog and homemade batter.

I am going to cook stuffed acorn squash, and an apple, parsnip and celery soup.

I'm cooking steak. I was going to ask for everyone's favorite way to do steak. I'm thinking of something I saw on Alton Brown: sear it in a pan & finish it off in the oven.
It's unofficial "steak & BJ" day at the Algethi household.

Yes. And ketchup. But not blended. I make a pile of each, dip once into one, eat, then once into the other and eat.

My wife wanted fresh ground hamburgers with bleu cheese on homemade soughdough buns.  So, that's what she's gonna get.

Plus, it's sort of like foreplay when he watches me deep throat that dog and homemade batter.

And that's where the similarity ends.

This afternoon I am having tortellini and spinach in a garlic cream sauce with sausage and a glass of white wine.  For dinner, it will be sushi and champagne.

Cooking naked isn't sexy.  But one of these days I'm going to make a delicious pie and, once it's ready, serve it wearing only an apron and heels with sexy hair and makeup.

Hopefully that will rank above "changing the air filter on an '84 Buick naked."

It's unofficial "steak & BJ" day at the Algethi household.


Do it like Alton Brown does HOWEVER, use melted Coconut Oil on the outside, you'll have to melt it and use a brush but it makes a lovely colored sear on the outside.

It does not taste like coconuts at all. I stumbled on this when I went to make steaks this way and it was the only oil I had in the house.

The 4-hour Chef guy claims that putting the steak in the freezer for 40 mins I think (it's at the end of the google talk on Youtube) make it taste even better by drying it out. I haven't tried this yet because my freezer isn't great.

In my case, doing a lamb leg in the smoker, pulled pork in the pressure smoker, a couple of decent steaks in the souis vide that will be seared and cut up with some country ham into a wild rice mix. Home made chocolate covered strawberries with a special dark chocolate on a lindy's style cheese cake (thick, heavy, can break the table). The only side for the main meal is air fried thin cut French fries coated in duck fat for flavor. I wanted to do an onion soup as well, but my better two-thirds said that would be over the top.

Friday breakfast will be duck fritters.

Single this year, so I'll probably just order a pizza and have a beer.  Last year, I went with steak, asparagus, and macaroni+cheese.  Just processed American cheese, but mixed with pulled rotisserie chicken, broccoli florets, and a bit of soy sauce for kick.  Turns cheap college crap into something pretty quality.

Steak au poivre - recipe

It's filet with a brandy cream sauce.  It is pretty easy to make (plus you get to deglaze the pan by lighting the brandy on FIRE).  She gets her fancy French dinner, you get a delicious steak.  Everybody wins.

I use Ranch Style beans in this recipe of mine, which is usually a crowd favorite on a cold day.  I usually prefer to put fresh vegetables/peppers instead of the canned stuff if I'm going all fancy pants, but on a budget, this is fairly reasonable.

Taco Soup Madness

1 lb. ground bison  (or you can substitute ground beef, cooked turkey or cooked chicken if you prefer.  Bison tastes awesome in this recipe and gives you that rugged frontiersman/woman feeling.)
1 large can of Original Rotel
4 cooked strips of bacon, diced into small pieces.
1 small can of corn
2 small cans of Ranch Style beans
1 chopped onion
1 chopped bell pepper
1 pkg. McCormick cheesy taco seasoning
1 pkg. dry Ranch Seasoning (the dip mix)
2 cans of water (use the large can of Rotel after it's empty)
1 tbsp. Worchester sauce

Season bison as you prefer.  Brown bison in skillet with Worchester sauce.  Drain fat from meat.  Saute onion and bell pepper.

Transfer meat, cooked bacon, bell pepper and onion to a large soup pot.  Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.  Once mixture is boiling, turn heat down to simmer for 20 minutes.  For additional flavor enhancing goodness, simmer up to an hour, stirring occasionally.  Serve with tortilla chips or crackers.

As a variation, add some freshly shredded cheese and crispy tortilla strips on top of your serving bowls of soup.

Celebrating this weekend, going to dig a path to the grill and slap on a ribeye, lobster Mac and cheese with roasted Brussel sprouts and bacon for sides.  If I can keep the kid busy enough to make a tiramisu for dessert my wife may give me a little extra cuddle time.  And by cuddle time I mean . . . ah this is Fark, you all know.

IronJelly: Any food you can make heart shaped.  biatches love hearts for some reason.


I'm planning on cutting up some rib eye steaks into hearts using cookie cutters as a pattern.  On top of that will go a similar sized heart shaped slab of onion and a heart shaped slab of portabella.  This is getting broiled.

This all will go with a couple bottles of wine and a prolonged period of dessert of hair pie.

How about Jambalaya?  Just grab a mix from the store, get a pound of kielbasa or something, takes about half an hour and only one small pot/saucepan/whatever you call it.  Nowhere near as good as from scratch, of course, but perfectly servicable, and a fine date meal.

Oh, and here's the chicken pot pie recipe that also works well.  Keep in mind, it's meant to be a occasional treat, it contains a lot of butter.  Not as much as your typical chicken wing recipe, but still...

Chicken Pot Pie:

You will need:

2 Unbaked pie crusts  (Protip:  Mrs. Smith's ready made crusts work fine in a hurry but if you have the time and technology at hand, it's even better to make your own crusts from scratch!)
6 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 Cup chopped onion
1/2 Cup flour
1 Tsp. salt
3 Cups chicken broth
1/2 Cup green peas, shelled
2 Medium sized carrots, chopped into small chunks or sliced thinly
3 Cups of pre-cooked chicken, sliced into small pieces, cubes or chunks.  Best to cook it yourself flavor-wise, but if you're lazy you can use the canned stuff.

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.

Saute onion in butter. Blend in flour and salt. Add broth to mixture all at once.

Cook and stir mixture until thick and bubbly. Add chicken, peas, carrots and chicken. Stir mixture to a soft bubbling boil.

Pour mixture into one of your ready-made pie crusts. Carefully remove the pie crust dough from the other pie crust pan and cover over the now filled pie crust. Gently pinch the edges of the pie crusts together to seal the pie shut.

Next, carefully cut two to three small slits in the top pie crust. Bake the pie at 450 for 10-12 minutes or until the pie crust is a light golden brown and is flaky to the touch.

Serves 4 - 6

If you're feeling more adventurous, you could try making smaller, individual pies.  I also have tried variations of this using broccoli, mushrooms, etc.  Experiment and go nuts.

The trick is to let the steak come to room temp before you cook it.  Less thermal distance = better crust, better steak.

Chicken Piccata over Angel Hair. Very easy to make and hey you can drink the wine you don't use with the meal.

Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (2)
2-4 oz Whole Wheat Angel Hair Pasta
1/2 stick Butter
Handful of Capers (drained)
Roasted Artichoke
2 Lemons
All Purpose Flour
Pepper
3/4 Cup Chicken Stock (Low Sodium)
4-6 Tbsp. Peanut Oil
1 cup White Wine (dry recommended - or Naked Grape with Honey/Pear/Lemon undertones)

Cut chicken into thin strips and dredge in flour. Put Peanut Oil in Pan and Heat on High until it starts to smoke. Throw Chicken in with Salt/Pepper for taste for 4-5 minutes until brown then flip. Set aside on a Paper Towel to drain excess grease.

Bring a pot to boil  along with 1/4 cup of Chicken Stock and put the Angel Hair in with some salt. Cook Angel Hair until preferred consistency (Recommended al dente)

Thinly Slice lemons and chop artichoke. Use White Wine to deglaze the pan the chicken was in, be sure to scrap all the good stuff from the pan and leave in. Now take your butter, (1) sliced lemon, remaining 1/2 cup of chicken stock and a handful of capers and place into the pan. Let the sauce reduce a little then add the chicken back into the pan. Cook for about 3-5 minutes careful to stir chicken in with sauce.

Place chicken onto Pasta and pour remaining sauce over the chicken and pasta. Drizzle with capers for taste and add remaining lemon slices for garnish. Pour remaining Wine into glasses and serve with dish.

Overall cook time, about 15-20 minutes.

Southwest salad:

  1 can Ranch Style beans, mostly drained
 1/2 medium onion, diced
  1 large ripe tomato, diced
  1/2 to 3/4 cup Catalina dressing
  shredded lettuce

Layer all that in a casserole dish, starting with the beans and in the order above.

Cover it in lettuce, drizzle mexican crema (or sour cream) and a few shots of El Tapatio sauce.....heaven w/ heartburn

Why cant you make roasted potatoes? Is the roast taking up the whole oven? If you have the room, par-boil some quartered yukon gold potatoes - about 3 minutes. Drain and put into a bowl. Drizzle EVOO, minced fresh rosemary, and kosher salt to taste. Toss to coat and spread out on a sheet pan. Put in the oven until lightly browned, stirring once or twice.

Came in to say that the first meal I ever prepared for the not-yet-mrs praxcelis was chicken piccata and shredded carrots sauteed in browned butter and dill.  Our recipes are very similar, although I go with the "pound the chicken into flatness" instead of slicing, and I skip the artichoke (my favorite veg, she can't stand it)

I'm going to make Creole shrimp and grits. I already have some leftover mashed potatoes and parsnips, so I might use those instead of the grits. I've done that before and the shrimp and sauce goes quite well with the mash.

Anyone have any ideas for a good side dish for this Creole meal? I'm considering fried green tomatoes with a remoulade, but I'll have to see if the store has any green tomatoes. I guess I'm trying to think of a backup plan.

Sous vide is a great way to cook a steak. I don't have a sous vide appliance though. I just use an Igloo cooler. You put the steak in a ziplock with whatever seasoning you like, get all of the air out of the bag, and put it in the cooler. Heat some water to slightly above your target temperature and pour it in the cooler. Let it sit for an hour or two and you are ready to sear. I usually do it on a screaming hot grill, about 45 seconds to 1 min per side. What is also cool about this method is it makes it real easy to get the timing of your steak with the side dishes.

I'm making zucchini and sausage casserole.  We're going out for dinner tomorrow night at Zombieburger, but I felt like cooking tonight and I found some good zucchini.

Zucchini & Sausage Casserole - Serves 3 with leftovers

3 cups of rice (cook this beforehand and make sure it's warm when you add it in)
4-6 medium sized zucchini, well-scrubbed
1.5 lb ground sausage of whatever type you like

1. Use a box grater to grate the zucchini on a medium size hole.  it should get nice and stringy and shredded, and it should be rather wet.  That's good.  Set aside in a bowl on the counter.
2. Cook the sausage in a large skillet until done, making sure it gets chopped up nice and fine.
3. Add shredded zucchini and rice into skillet with sausage, mixing thoroughly so the zucchini can bind everything together and the sausage grease gets soaked up by the zucchini and rice.
4. Add salt/pepper/hot sauce to taste.

Cheap, filling, and tastes really good.  Grating the zucchini is the hard part..If you have a food processor, that'd probably work, but I never have so the box grater is fine for me,

\Tonight is zucchini casserole and homework
\\Tomorrow is gooood burgers and then going to our favorite gay bar
\\\ If you're ever in Des Moines, Zombieburger is the best restaurant, hands down.

Pan seared scallops: Over medium-high heat, melt approx 1 tbsp of butter in a small frying pan until bubbling stops (should coat the pan thickly). Place 6 large sea scallops flat side down in the pan, leave them undisturbed until there is a brown coating on the underside (approx. 2 min). Flip so the fresh side lies in a fresh patch of butter, cook until brown on the underside. Once the scallops are done, set aside and add a minced shallot to the pan and cook until it begins to brown. Deglaze with 1/4 cup of dry white wine. Add shallots back to sauce and pour over scallops. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and garnish with thinly sliced scallions.

/Pan seared scallops are stupidly easy to make, and reward you with a delicious meal WAY out of proportion to the amount of effort put in. Now go cook it for your sweetie.
