Re: At-home cooking

Well, I didn't get to go up on the mesa. My wife was kind enough to make a list of the chores I've been neglecting. That took precedence, unfortunately. Phytophotdermititis can be caused by other things, too. I remember one of my childhood friends got it after swimming in the ocean and assumed it wa...

Re: At-home cooking

I went to bed early, woke up a while ago and now I can't sleep. I find myself craving Vietnamese food. There was a decent vietnamese/italian restaurant nearby, but the owners got divorced (she's vietnamese, he's italian) and the restaurant closed. I guess I'm on my own... It's been hot, the bugs are...

Re: At-home cooking

My watercress soup taste great. I altered the recipe :o I used margarine, spinach, onion and watercress, 1 can condensed milk, and regular milk added to fill blender. During the blender portion of the task, the stringy stems got all wound up around the cutter blades :roll: Soup turned out too strin...

Re: Solar cooker

Almost everyone of my age bracket says, "E.T. phone home." When they first see this thing. You might get the same with your modified umbrella, Zelph. Soon you'll have all your neighbors and friends coming over to see how you are cooking with solar :D http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v228/...

Re: Solar cooker

We had some company yesterday, so we made ribs in the solar cooker. Came out great! Dry rubbed them, then 3 hours of cooking in the solar cooker with half a beer, then sauced and grilled briefly. They could have been slightly more tender, so maybe 4 hours would be better, but they were still better ...

Re: At-home cooking

Thanks, Pnw.hiker! I knew lentils were easy, but have always kind of treated them as a secondary ingredient. Beans in an hour? Great! That seems like a tasty, creative "recipe" (the quotes are to indicate that it's more of a guide than a dictate. I appreciate the freedom of that). Great id...

Re: At-home cooking

It's funny you mention McDonald's. I miss a lot of things about living in NM, among them green chile cheeseburgers from McDonalds. They don't put it on the menu, but will add green chile free of charge if you ask. In Maine they will serve you a lobster roll, per request, too. Can't get either one at...

Re: At-home cooking

I made some red onion marmalade the other day, per my mother's request.

S...

Re: At-home cooking

You've been living righteously and reaping the benefits :D Apricot salsa....hmmm now that's one to think about. I wonder if the salsa will take on a bit of apricot taste :?: I picked through the watercress and came up with about 1/3 of what I harvested. Stems, seed pods and what looks like fresh wa...

Re: At-home cooking

Tonight we'll have super duper nachos, with leftover flank steak and pork ribs meat diced up on it and some kind of delicious espresso-cured cheese and apricot salsa on the side. For desert (and breakfast tomorrow), apricots baked with rhubarb served with yogurt and granola. More blessings to count ...
