Of course, those people are "expecially" annoying to me anyway. Let me "axe" you guys, am I the only one bothered by this verbal diarrhea? "Irregardless", this paragraph I have just written makes me sick to my stomach.

If I'm roasting potatoes, I take some vegetable oil and dry onion soup mix and toss it all together. Toss in the oven at 350 for about 30 mins and consume! Usually make with chicken as marinated chicken breasts take about half an hour as well.

I'm wanting to make thai green curry soon.

I was going to go with this recipe:
http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/thai-gree ... etail.aspx
But I worry about if I'll be able to find the green curry paste and the fish sauce.

Does anyone have a good recipe for this style curry?

This is a sammich my friend made while I was in Seattle. It is almost 6 inches high and filled with nearly 1.5 pounds of Pastrami.

She also made a variety of pizzas from scratch and Beef Wellington. :shock:

I dunno that pastrami sandwich sort of offends my inner jew

1. Pastrami not on rye? absurd
2. Grey Poupon? that's not real mustard, get some Hebrew National on that
3. Corned beef is tastier than pastrami anyway

Funny sammich story:
Made a whole turkey on sunday.
Monday is left over turkey day, so I pull out all the sandwich stuff. My sister looks at the bowl of carved turkey.
"How to I make a sandwich with this? Its not like, sliced like the stuff we normally use"
/facepalm. I tell her to shred it with her hands, and apperently I spourted another head.

Since it seems the realms will never come up today I've been trolling the site. This page caught my eye, I love cooking I find it relaxing and there's always the bonus of having something good to eat after. I make a rosemary pork roast with some kind of chili peppers depending on whats growing at the house. Usually Habaneros because they are the hottest we have growing, anyways on to the recipe.

1/4 cup of rosemary
5-x garlic cloves, depending on how much you love garlic.
2 Tbsp. Kosher salt
2 Tbsp. ground black pepper
I usually use 5 Habaneros, but 3 would cover it, or none if you're not a fan of spicy food.
2 Tbsp. Olive oil

Mix all of the above ingredients in a food processor and add olive oil until it becomes a thick paste.

I usually do this with a 3lb pork roast so if bigger add and small detract ingredients.

Butterfly the roast(cutting down the center somewhere preferably leaving the fatty end on the bottom as its hard to cut through and you can get the full butterfly, leave a small area so the two halves are connected), now you will have two halves. Cut a deep pocket in each half and spread the paste in each pocket and every other area inside and outside of the roast. Cook on a rotisserie for 20 min/lb or until the roast reaches 160 in the center.

-add the flour and brown it (rue) don't burn it
-take it off the heat and add the chilli power (don't burn it)
-add the chicken broth (1-2 cups at a time) and wisk it
-wisk untill the sauce is thick enough stick to the back of a spoon but not too runny
-add the spices to taste. not too much salt due to the chicken broth
-let simmer for 20-30 minutes to sexify the flavors then taste it again
-add more spices if the sauce needs them


Tortillas:
-put oil in a pan. deep enough to go to the first knuckle on your finger.

Just made turkey meatballs for the first time tonight, pretty successful concoction!

1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
1 small onion, diced
2 t oregano
2 t basil
3 cloves garlic, minced
salt and black pepper
1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 1/2 C bread crumbs
1/2 C heavy cream
1/2 C olive oil
1 T Butter

Mix turkey, onion, oregano, basil, garlic and salt and pepper. Add egg, bread crumbs and heavy cream. Roll meatballs to desired size. Heat a large pan and add oil and butter. Dust meatballs with some flour and brown them over medium-high heat.

You can finish them off by roasting them in the oven, I put them in an oven safe pot, covered them in canned tomato sauce and cooked them for about 45 mins at 375 degrees.

I ended up using two pounds of 97/3 ground turkey, as I didn't feel like splitting up and saving half a roll of meat. The original recipe called for 3 eggs and a full cup of heavy cream but 1 egg and 1/2 a cup of cream seemed to get the job done just fine. More then that and they'll probably be a sloppy mess. If you want to cut a little fat out (or you don't have access to heavy cream for some reason), I've heard you can substitute the cream for whatever milk you have in the refrigerator.

Thanks, Been dying for a new ground turkey recipe!

This sounds delicious! Gonna try making it with a putanesca sauce though which is like tomato sauce but with capers and olives too!

I just watched an old episode of Good Eats with Alton Brown and he had a pretty basic "pantry friendly" tomato sauce recipe I think I'll try out the next time I make these.

I hate eating out for lunch during then work week. It gets expensive and most of the food isn't very healthy. However, I know if I bring in something that isn't tasty (frozen meals, PB&J)I'll end up running down to the cafeteria. Sometimes I try to make big meals that make good leftovers like lasagna or mac and cheese.

The last two days I have made myself some awesome wraps. I cook up chicken breast ahead of time and slice it up so they're quick and easy to make in the morning.

The "recipe" is:
Some sort of wrap or torilla
Greens (Lettuce, Spring mix, spinach)
Cooked, chopped chicken breast
Sliced tomato
Fresh Mozzarella slices
Fresh basil leaves

I throw all that in a wrap and then wrap foil around it. Right before I am going to eat it I throw some Balsamic on it.

Next week the mozz, tomato and basil are getting traded in for feta, cucumber and homemade tzatziki sauce.


Does anyone else have any great lunch tips for people stuck in offices?

Your lunch routine sounds a lot like mine. I usually bring leftovers and when it is chicken or steak that usually means a wrap. With no leftovers it's usually a sandwich with some fruit (particularly this time of year) on the side. I make fresh sandwich bread a few times a week, so the sandwiches are pretty enjoyable and healthy. Plus I can vary up the bread style a bit to stave off boredom. I've been really trying to avoid processed foods and preservatives as much as possible, and making my own bread has been a huge help, so when I "fall back" to a sandwich it's something I really enjoy.

Also, my bread maker makes jelly very easily. I'm not really much of a PB&J fan, but my kids are, and the homemade jelly along with the homemade bread makes me feel a lot better about them eating it.

I made this last night and it was pretty good. Listing the recipe how I would do it next time.

Simplistic Eggplant Parmigiana
1 large eggplant cut into @ 3/4 inch slices (rounds)*
1 Can of diced tomatoes (mine had garlic other Italian herbs in it already)
4 cloves of garlic (depends on how garlicy you like stuff)
Fresh Mozzarella
Basil

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Coat both sides of eggplant slices with olive oil and top with a bit of salt and pepper
Place on baking sheet and cook for about 30 minutes or until tender, flipping halfway through

Sauté garlic in olive oil
Add canned tomatoes
Cook while eggplant is baking, reduce it so it isn't too watery
I threw in a dash of red wine from a bottle my roommate had open but I don't think it was essential
Toss in some shredding basil just as it is finished

Remove tray with eggplant from oven
Top each eggplant with a few tablespoons of tomato sauce
Place thin slice of mozzarella on top
Return to oven until cheese is melted

This was really easy to make and quite yummy. Baking the eggplant rather than frying it also makes this dish a bit better for you than the usual version.


I am using the leftover sauce tonight with sausage, spinach and mushrooms. It kicked the pants off anything in a can and was really easy to make.

* I made this again Friday and it came out disappointingly bitter. Neither time did I pre-salt and wipe down the eggplant slices but I certainly will next time. I have no idea why it didn't effect it the first time.
