What do you all enjoy cooking?  What are you good at making?  Do you have a favourite dish?

I am no culinary genious, though I often enjoy the process of cooking.  Preparing things, marinating, sasoning, and then cooking.  I guess I enjoy working the outdoor grill the most - doing steaks, chops, fish, vegetables, roasts, whole turkeys, and more.

How about all of you?

Everything!


I got a Big Green Egg for Christmas 2 years ago; I love to BBQ on it, even when there is 6 feet of snow on the ground.


I make my own pasta with a pasta machine.


I like French cuisine, so I dabble a bit in that area.


Currently, I'm testing gluten free communion wafers.  Our priest wants everyone to eat from the same loaf, so a dear ol' soul is making wafers.  They are horrible.  They taste like gingerbread men.  One week they were so thick, I could have sliced it and made a sandwich with it. This week's wafers were about the consistency of poker chips.  I bought a Red Mill gluten free flour yesterday and the wafers I made today were not bad. Buying gluten free wafers would raise the cost in the budget from $200 to $2000.


What is your specialty?


Jim

Well then, let's  bring this back onto topic.


I do TEC / CoE cuisine.  (How's that for a swing back onto the A/E Board ?).


No, I don't enjoy cooking; I just loath starving.


I bake chicken, breaded sea fish, not much red meat at all, lots of salads with X-tra virgin olive oil w/ red wine vinegar & lots of crushed garlic; toasted cheese sandwiches, stir-fried veggies, brown rice, whole wheat bread, pasta and sauce and grated cheese, lots of different stuff.  To make things more interesting, I drown everything reasonably possible with gravy, made from powdered gravy mix and doused with Worstershire sauce.  I also bake  Paul Newman's pizza; about the best store bought pizza available, and a percent of the company's profits go to charity. Cheese, eggs  and live-culture Greek yoghurt, fruit, berries, nuts and miscellaneous enter into my diet too.   I'm nutrition conscious; that's part of my training.  I keep the egregious junk food largely out of my diet, except on special occasions --- stuff like hot dogs, "prepared" meats, and sugary things.


Every day I make one quart of tea --- 2 parts black tea; 1 part green tea --- no sugar but with lemon juice.  This gives me a mixture of epigallitan catanate and thearubigen anti-oxidents. (Those I've spelled wrong also; but who cares?)  I Never make, consume, or advise cucumber sandwiches or beige soup.


I know Jim is blanching and wretching at this description of my culinary skills; he's a gourmet chef.  He'll have some  really yummy delights when he logs on. Smile

You could cook for me any old time. Everything up to the gravy because...I have biscuits and gravy once a year (I am a southern boy, after all)...I could be a gravy addict. However, I get around that by calling all my gravies, sauces. 


Same thing with hot-dogs. And pizza. I love them to much and would become as wide as I am tall.


I do love cucumber sandwiches and English brown soups.


And mince meat pies.  D bastardized the one we baked on Saturday with a layer of Granny Smith apples. He hates mince meat.


However, just about anything on the stove or oven is acceptable if washed down with a fine Washington wine.

Oh my, I am salvating just reading all this!



Olive Oil is good for every part of your body inside and out.  I try and use it as often as I can.  And there is alot of evidence that garlic is good for the heart.



Gravy -- it's good for the soul.

1/4 cup in your bath water, occasionally. Good for dry skin.  Romans used it as a scraping/cleaning element for the skin.

I'm a sporatic chef, mostly on the grill. The most exciting adventure recently was grilling Alligator for the first time. Not bad. Tastes like pork chops.Wink
