Food Thread: Do Not Mess With My Steak! And...Fried Popcorn...Is That A Thing?

friedstuff.jpg

Here's the thing. Fried food is good. Really good. And notice I didn't say, "fried oysters," or "fried potatoes," or "fried rutabaga chips."

I mean fried food as a category tastes damned fine. Hot, salty, greasy and crunchy is a foursome that is hard to resist.

When was the last time you had something fried and thought, "Damn, I wish they had boiled this."

Yeah, and that's why diets that deny us satisfying foods are doomed to fail.

I was eating at a restaurant (at the bar!) last night and was told about the special appetizer: fried artichokes. Now, my bet was that they were out of a can, but I also knew from previous delightful experience that their fry cooks are professionals, so...what the hell!

And there was much rejoicing in DildoLand!

So...what fried foods are bad?

And don't throw fried Oreos at me, because I think they are pretty awesome.

******

Two weeks ago commenter Moki asked a good question that morphed into a bit of a challenge: create a celebratory menu for eight people that is reasonably priced.

And what are the rules? Well, it could get very complicated, but for our purposes how about assuming a typical pantry; no fancy and weird herbs and spices and try to take into account all of the costs: that bag of semisweet chocolate chips wasn't free, so the cookies should take that cost into account.

Oh...and try to avoid slow-cookers and air fryers and such; many people have them, but many people don't.

Appetizer.
Main course.
Two sides (vegetable and starch or two vegetables: your choice).
Dessert (yeah...that's tough).

Try to keep the cost at $50-$80.

Winner (judged by Moki and me) will receive a copy of the world famous cookbook, b>The Deplorable Gourmet.

And there is no second place.

Send the entries to cbd dot aoshq at gee mail dot com.
Make the subject: "Menu Contest."

Last day to submit is November 4th.

I am not enamored of extremely sweet and sticky and gooey desserts. I like a little bite of bitterness from dark chocolate, and I prefer the toasted flavors of dark caramel to the sweeter flavors of marshmallow and such. But this does look good, especially since the chef has a fine sense of humor and understands that not all of us are trained, and cook in great kitchens. Mom's Mississippi Mud Cake seems to be a keeper, at least for one mighty try!
******

Before you say, "WHAT? That shit is disgusting...get it off my computer! Just read the recipe. It does look intriguing. Steak with anchovy and caper butter. But not enough to try. Sorry, but steak needs to be treated with respect. I'll adulterate it, but carefully. A squirt of lemon and a dash of excellent olive oil? Yes! The Italians know what they are doing. But this is a Brit magazine, and my recent experience with their cuisine (and I have been there a lot in the last few years) is that they do not know how to cook a steak.

Wow. This guy takes his herbs and spices seriously!
Hi, CBD - this is "crisis du jour."

From the Food Thread yesterday:
how about assuming a typical pantry; no fancy and weird herbs and spices

In context, I know this was a line from the four-course-meal-on-a-budget challenge. But still: I come not to bury spices, but to praise them.

I cook mainly comfort food - soups, stews, chilis - but spices are my culinary passion. Tinkering with making different blends or sampling blends that I never would have thought of on my own is, for me, one of life's simple pleasures.

Here's three of my all-time favorite blends, how I usually cook with them, and where to get them if interested:

Bajan Seasoning (Savory Spice Shop) - a Caribbean (Barbadian, actually - shortened to 'Bajan') blend that's usually blindingly hot because of the inclusion of Scotch Bonnet peppers. Savory Spice's blend tones the heat way down so that the pungent and herbaceous notes can take center stage. Main flavors: onion, thyme, marjoram, allspice, anise, and (in Savory's blend) lime. I use this with seafood and with veggie-forward dishes.

Isphahan (La Boîte) - I would never have thought to mix together lemon peel, green cardamom, and cumin ... but the result is wonderful. I used this on a seafood dish recently, and it was revelatory. Great tartness from the lemon combined with earthy tones from the other spices was simply spot on. Isphahan is the creation of Lior Lev Sercarz, an Israeli-born and French-trained chef who owns La Bôite in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of NYC, arguably the premier spice shop in the world.

Ras El Hanout (Zamouri Spices) - a go-to spice blend in North African cuisine, Ras El Hanout harkens back to a much earlier time when each village would have someone who blended spices and sold them out of his (usually) house. 'Ras El Hanout' literally means 'the best of the house' or 'the head of the house', what we would now call the 'signature blend' of a spice merchant. One of the results of that history is that there is no standard recipe for what Ras El Hanout should contain. That said, it's usually a complex mix of both 'sweet' spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and/or allspice) with peppery notes from chilis and earthy tones from cumin and cardamom. In the main, Ras El Hanout is comparable to Indian cuisine's Garam Masala. Closely related to Ras El Hanout are the spice blends Baharat and Rogan Josh, in order of increasing heat. The Ras blend from Zamouri spices is the best one I've tried. I use Ras primarily in lamb dishes, but it's wonderful in any kind of stew as well.

So - live a little and try out some "fancy and weird" herbs and spices. You'll be glad you did. An Asian food store is a good place to sample unusual spice blends if you have one nearby, and there will usually be a small-sized bag of most blends (and even individual herbs or spices) that won't set you back much cash if you end up not liking it.

A couple good websites to get started with spice blends are:
https://www.allrecipes.com/recipes/16328/ingredients/herbs-and-spices/homemade-spice-blends/
and
https://www.epicurious.com/recipes-menus/spice-blends-dry-rubs-and-other-seasoning-mixes-gallery

Here's my own Red Adobo blend, tuned to be what I'd like for a Red Adobo to taste like when I eat out. But - your taste buds may disagree with mine, and that's fine. Good, in fact - because you can tune it to your tastes and end up liking it even better ... and, along the way, discover the joy of spice blending.

Red Adobo


  • 4 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 4 tablespoons Mexican oregano*
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper

Mill the oregano in a spice grinder**
Combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Makes about a cup.
Seal and store in a cool, dry place.

*Do NOT use Italian oregano! (the kind we usually think of as 'oregano')
** A 'spice grinder' is a coffee grinder that's dedicated wholly to spices.


******

I like his cooking style and I like the recipes he makes and I really like his humor. Too many of these sorts of videos are completely devoid of humor and mistakes.

If the text looks a bit oily it's because I made a big batch of popcorn for those in the house who are not slaving over a hot keyboard providing content for you maniacs. And strangely, a bowl of it appeared on my desk. And I proceeded to shovel it into my mouth as fast as I could.

Am I the only one around here who has exactly zero self control around a bowl of popcorn?

19 "So...what fried foods are bad?"

Anything fried and then reheated. Soggy and disappointing
You can sometimes fix it up with dry heat like reheating it under the toaster oven broiler (with the drip tray under it), but it's never quite the same.

Also, falafel I could take or leave. It's like ballast. The best thing I can say about it is that you can put sauces on it that aren't falafel. But even then, it's too crumbly to dip without disintegrating.

92 Technically, all good popcorn is fried. Any other food that you put oil in the pan and then continuously stir over a short period until done, is stir-fried.

Air-popped just isn't as good. I used an air popper for many, many years. When it died, I didn't bother to replace it. Got a whirly-popper stove-top popper as a present, which is a godsend.

Though what I'd really like, mostly for nostalgia (Friday nights were television nights with the family growing up) is an old Aladdin no-shake stovetop popper.

118 "And there was much rejoicing in DildoLand!"
It was then the thread went in an unexpected direction.
Being a single person I find that following instructions for most cooking means cutting ingredients in half or more. And buying fresh produce and meats means going to the market more times than normal as one can only consume so much each meal and you do not want the food to go to waste.
Not sure how many single folks are on the blog, but now that I am starting to get more and more interested in preparing and cooking my own meals I am see that I need to plan out menus ahead of time. Does anyone else do this?

Creeper, I'm making some leftover ribeye into an enchilada. If you haven't done Mexican yet with your leftovers, it is an easy choice. Onions, peppers, jalapeños, Jack or cheddar and chopped up meat. If you don't have shells or tortillas,make Spanish rice or use beans.

Depends on what you mean by fryer. My wife's mom and sister handed off a Ninja Foodi to us. Does a bang-up job frying/grilling pork chops, etc., etc.

Or if you mean deep-fat frying, I agree with Navybrat in principle. The Fry Daddy does a nice job for most small to medium sized batches of things. We use ours mostly for fish like smelt, etc.

Not only is it a good, cheap mix for everyday use, but those other, perhaps a bit tastier but also more expensive, seasoning mixes tend to have big chunks in them that fall off the meat and end up burning in my skillet.

180 Hubby and I went to a bed and breakfast a couple of weeks ago, and had the most delicious carrot ginger soup. I've been thinking about it ever since we left. I called them today, and asked if they could share the recipe, and they graciously said they would, so the chef sent me the recipe, it was mostly just the ingredients with a few instructions. So I set out to make it this afternoon, and it turned out so wonderful. It's enough to feed a whole dining room full of people, but I didn't want to alter the recipe at all since it was the first time making it, we will have to share some of it with our neighbors. The only thing I won't be doing is the foam that they added to to the top of the soup. We are having that with filets and parmesan crusted potatoes tonight

190 I received a request to share my hot buttered rum recipe. I found it at SeriousEats, I'm sorry to say.

https://preview.tinyurl.com/tutoxka

The adjustments I make are as follows:

I skimp a tiny bit on the sugar. It's the butter that intrigues me more than the sugar. As the recipe says, mixing them together reduces the tendency for the butter to form an oil slick on top of the drink.

When I take the batter to make drinks for others, I measure out the batter amount and make individual lumps so I can just put a pre-measured lump in each cup.

I dip a corner of each lump in a touch of kosher salt. I find the tiny bit of salt really improves the taste and provides depth. This may be unnecessary if you use salted butter instead of unsalted.

At the party, I pour 4 oz hot water into the cup, add a lump of spiced batter and stir until melted, top with 2 oz rum, and give it another stir.

The recipe calls for wrapping the garlic in foil; I put it in the little ceramic jar. Turned out great. Next day, I tried it wrapped in aluminum foil. Turned out even better.

1.5 oz Balcones True Blue Cask Strength
1 oz Campari
1 oz Martini and Rossi Reserva Special Rubino

Shake till ice cold. Strain into glass. Drop in Filthy Dark Cherry.

Curing is one way to preserve it, with sodium nitrite. Uncured is reserved by other means, like smoking or refrigeration. So uncured bacon will probably not have sodium nitrite, but it might have just as much ordinary table salt. Or it might have less salt and rely on smoking and refrigeration.

I think a city vs. country ham is roughly equivalent.

214 Husband is q'ing up a movie/show to watch so dumping pre-typed notes up. Wall of text, sorry, but here goes. Headed back to couch.

-----

Over the past couple weeks, my soup choices were:

Borscht, the hot version. I wanted homemade beef stock so purchased a bunch of beef shanks and started early in the morning. I always use the America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Illustrated Rich Beef Stock recipe for Borscht. Browning the shanks, then reducing a bit of dry red wine in the same pot, then adding the shanks back in and sweating,covered for about 20 mins. I use the shanks as they recommend because the meat is added to the borscht and it's delicious.

Fennel and Potato Chowder. Lots of leeks too.

Yesterday I made a pot of Cream of Broccoli.

----------

For meals, after eating so much chicken the weeks before:

Braised haddock in a simple buttery wine sauce with leeks and the last of my small garden tomatoes (small orange/sun gold cherry and grape). A special meal even though so simple. I folded the fillets over when braising (covered) as they were thin. It also made them easier to pack into the pan amongst the vegetables. I used Vermouth because I was too lazy to go downstairs and grab a bottle of white wine.

Tourtiere (Pork Pie) - I just love this meat pie. I used a pound of pork and a quarter pound of ground veal this time.

Seven Layer Dip (Friday night treat, with chips), Saturday night (and tonight), we used a tortilla wrap instead of chips to stay away from the chips. We liked it much better. It was a like a bean burrito. We warmed the tortillas then stuffed them, then heated quickly to warm the beans and melt the cheese. A treat!

Spinach and Goat Cheese Pizza tomorrow which was going to be my Friday night treat, but making it tomorrow instead since we are still eating the bean dip. I want to use my fresh spinach for this, and have goat cheese in the fridge. This is by far my favorite non-meat pizza and one of the easist to make. I use my pizza dough setting on my bread machine for the dough.

I guess it is the cold days now, but a lot of comfort food thoughts. I might make a mushroom/gruyere quiche this week too.

----------

Sides:

Cauliflower Cakes (using goat cheese). Topped with a dollop of greek yogurt, versus one of the two yogurt sauces offered in the recipe. The sauces sounded delicious, but I just did not want to spend the extra time making one. Next round I will. These cakes were delicious and easy to make. The spices were turmeric, coriander, ginger, lemon zest, with scallions, fresh garlic and goat cheese and so forth. You fry them up in olive oil. I served alongside the haddock dish. These were addictive to me.

More and more I'm making hearty salads for sides instead of worrying about sides throughout the week. It's so easy to add next to whatever meat, seafood, protein on the dish.

Last week I made:

Cucumber, Tomato, and Feta Salad. A classic, but very healthy and pretty low cal. Just an oil and vinegar salad.

And a Broccoli Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing. Another fairly light salad. A little bit of olive oil in the dressing. Dried cranberries and toasted sliced almonds to add a bit of crunch.

Tried a new recipe this week to go alongside my Tourtiere. A Honey-Mustard Coleslaw.
I like creamy slaw, but this sounded pretty good. Only 2 tablespoons of mayo; taking its place is spicy brown mustard and honey.

I understand ... but honestly, there's much better out there.

Salt is even cheaper than $2/jar, so buying what's basically mostly salt doesn't make sense to me. I always end up salting my food lightly anyway, so I much prefer to buy salt-free spice blends and then salt the food to my taste.

Posted by: boo!bell at November 01, 2020 04:39 PM (/669Q)

Of course, here's what they sent me. The one thing I didn't do was strain the zest. I think maybe they just peeled the skin of the orange and then removed it in this recipe, but I zested a whole orange, and didn't strain anything. It came perfect, IMO.

3 oz butter
8 oz onions
1 Tbl garlic
3# carrots
2 Tbl ginger
2 qt chicken stock
1 can coconut milk
1 orange peel
TT S&P
sweat the onions and garlic in the butter add the carrots, ginger and orange zest and stock and cook until tender add the coconut milk and remove the zest and puree in vita prep season and serve or chill and serve

244 ---------------------

1/2 C oats to 1lb gr. beef. Here's the recipe.



1 lb ground beef

1 1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped bell pepper

1 lightly beaten egg

8 oz canned without juice diced tomatoes

1/2 cup quick cooking oats



Topping

1/3 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon mustard



Bake for an hour. I usually double/triple the topping. Slather some on top while baking. Extra for the table.




Got it. Copied and saved. I almost threw in a can of tomatoes with this one but chickened out for fear it would be too moist. Thank you for the tip. You can bet I will try this one.

Back when woks were new and exotic on the US market, there was some Brit advertising in the middle of the night. As part of his spiel, there was a picture pf the factory. Large number of young, fit, shirtless men hammering woks out of plate stock. I always wondered if the factory was owned by the Peoples Liberation Army and staffed with conscripts, or it was part of a logai.

I find it hard to believe that some of you morons don't like calamari.

And if it's tough and stringy, uh..l.well...the cook isn't very good and/or the squid isn't fresh(ish).

The lively and adventurous Mrs naturalfake is a genius of fried food.

Tempura she has down to an art.

But, she also likes to fry catfish and chicken using different flavored coatings she's developed over the years. She's got 6-8 versions she can whip up and usually will make 3-6 versions each time she cooks chicken or catfish.

Getting back to the calamari she's roughly 4 versions she'll make as (I guess) calamari is a little more finicky.

She got her imagination fired up when we ate a a nice little cafe in Taos, NM of all places. They served two versions of calamari, which were excellent. so, she stole their recipe (she's good at figuring out how restaurants make a dish she likes) and came up with two more of her own.

I guess there's no point to this except that frying gives you a lot more options than just battered and cooked in oil.

2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp Ancho chili powder
2 tsp milled Mexican oregano
3 tsp finely ground coffee
3 tsp cocoa powder
(makes about 1/2 cup)

When used as spices, both the coffee and the cocoa have a wonderful smokiness to them that really goes well with the bison. (It helps that neither really tastes like either brewed coffee or chocolate bars when they're used this way.)

Posted by: runner


Artichokes are the king of veggies. It's got an f'ng crown, for f's sakes.

Weft's Method

Trim the 'leaves' of thorns, top and tail it, slice it in half with a bread knife. Spray/rub the halves with lemon juice or vinegar to prevent browning. Using a thick, doubled up kitchen towel as a backing grip, carve out the furry inside part.

Don't stab your damn self, it takes practice, but once you learn how to do it, you'll be a master of the King Of Veggies.

Steam those halves for +40min, make a dipping sauce, and serve hot. Or steam them half-way done and grill the shit out of them with garlic, olive oil, and salt.

Posted by: weft cut-loop at November 01, 2020 05:02 PM (eqpBs)

334 I promised alamogordo that I would post recipes for both of the vegetable sides I brought to the Texas MoMe.

First up is Brussels Sprouts. Yeah, I know, a lot of people hate them, and I've seen plenty of comments about that. That's why I brought them, because they're controversial. I had kind of hoped to convert one of the confirmed haters, but if anything like that happened, it happened out of my sight.

There are two important things you want when cooking Brussels sprouts. One is a recipe that adds lots of flavor to the sprouts. A lot recipes use bacon and heavy caramelization; this one uses country ham and a couple of other intense flavors. The second is: do NOT overcook them. Or, ideally, undercook them, either. If overcooked, they are gross and mushy and have a bitter cabbage taste. If you undercook them, they are a bit green and hard to chew. In the middle, when fork tines just sink into the core, they are almost sweet. When in doubt, avoid overcooking at all costs.

This recipe, like the other one, is a Chinese recipe (or, at least, a recipe from a Chinese cookbook) that doesn't seem like a Chinese recipe. It's from Barbara Tropp's The Modern Art of Chinese Cooking, which is the book that first taught me how to cook Chinese foods. She includes a lot of great information in her recipes on how to get them to come out right, time-saving tips and so on. The recipe doubles fine.

Ingredients:

3/4 lb Brussels sprouts, preferably small ones, but larger ones will work.
1 1/2 Tablespoons raw country ham, finely minced
1 tsp of black sesame seeds, or a bit more, preferably toasted
1/8 - 1/4 tsp Sichuan pepper-salt
1 tsp rice wine
1 tsp sesame oil

When I say country ham, I mean the real-deal intensely flavored stuff. It's also known as Smithfield ham, but IMO the Smithfield brand is not a good one. I get mine from Gatton Farms/Father's Country Hams in Kentucky.

Toasting the black sesame seeds really brings out the flavor. Put them in a dry pan over medium-low heat, and stir constantly until they taste really good. It takes maybe 3-5 minutes.

Sichuan pepper-salt is whole Sichuan peppercorns toasted in a pan with salt (about twice as much salt as peppercorns, by volume), then ground, then put through a sieve to catch the husks. Pretty much the same dry-pan technique as with the sesame seeds. The salt will turn yellow. The ground mixture keeps for some months at room temperature.

Rice wine is Chinese rice wine (not that sweet Japanese Mirin), ideally Shao Xing Rice wine, which is about 4-5 bucks a bottle at my Chinese grocery. Fino sherry (dry) is a good substitute.

For sesame oil, you can use Japanese (Kadoya is a good brand), which is more strongly flavored, or Chinese (Lee Kum Kee is a good brand), which is more mild. I slightly prefer the latter, especially the black sesame oil that Lee Kum Kee makes.

Cut off the stems of the sprouts, and steam until tender over medium-high heat. I use Pyrex pie plates in a bamboo steamer. Time will depend on size; for small sprouts, start checking after 8 minutes (using the fork test), and every 2 min thereafter; for large ones, start checking at 10-12 minutes. You must not overcook them or the dish will not be good.

Heat a wok, add a tablespoon of oil (I prefer peanut oil or lard), and when it's hot, add the sprouts, stirring them around (gently, or they will fall apart) so they are all coated with the oil. Stir in the ham and sesame seeds, sprinkle on the pepper-salt, stir-fry briefly, then add the wine, which should make a nice fragrant hiss. Once that's stirred in, turn off the heat, add the sesame oil, and stir to coat. All of this should take place in not much more than one minute.

Serve and enjoy. They're good hot or at room temperature.

386 335 First up is Brussels Sprouts. Yeah, I know, a lot of people hate them

I used to hate them, but now they're on the menu at Chez Crisis at least once a week.

I usually roast them after coating them in oil and a spice blend, usually a curry

In the process of tossing the sprouts with oil and seasoning, invariably some individual leaves fall off the rest of the sprout. I gather those and put them on the roasting sheet along with the rest of the sprouts ... but the individual leaves char and end up tasting like those cooked-til-brown potato chips.

419 The second Texas MoMe recipe is cauliflower. I guess some people hate that, too, but I've never really understood why. Oh, it's bland, and sort of thin on the palate, but that's what this recipe is designed to combat. It's from Fuchsia Dunlop's Sichuan Cookery. That's the British version (hence the grams below), but there is also an American one, that came out later. I think it's called Land of Plenty. Any Chinese cookbook from Fuchsia Dunlop is recommended in the strongest possible terms.

It doubles fine, but don't double the liquid volume -- 1 1/2 times the liquid for a double recipe is about right.

Cauliflower with smoky Bacon

1/2 head cauliflower, about 350g
75g streaky bacon
2 cloves of garlic
2 Tablespoons peanut oil, lard, or bacon fat
250 ml chicken stock
1 1/2 teaspoons potato starch or cornstarch, mixed with 2 teaspoons cold water

You want a reasonably intense bacon. I've had the Chinese version of this dish in Hong Kong, and they use what's called "wind-dried meat," a very intensely smoky bacon indeed. But normal bacon, preferably thick-cut, is actually very good here.

Lard or bacon fat is a noticeable improvement on peanut oil here.

The stock is crucial. You want home made stock, and you want it reasonably concentrated. It gives the dish its savor. I used a chicken, pork and (a little bit of) country ham stock.

Cut the cauliflower into small florets (she says "small enough to be picked up with chopsticks); cut the stems into thin (1/8") slices.

Cut the bacon across into 1/8 - 1/4" strips.

Peel the garlic and cut into slices, as thin as you can.

Mix the potato starch/corn starch with water, and keep a little whisk handy; it will separate and you'll need to re-mix it just before adding.

Put the oil/lard/bacon fat into a hot wok, swirl it around, and, when hot, add the bacon, stir-frying it until it starts to smell really good (shouldn't take long). Add the garlic and keep stir-frying until you can smell that too (maybe 10-20 seconds).

Add the cauliflower, and stir-fry it around to coat it with the tasty oil.

Add the stock, bring to a boil, then cover and cook for about 5 minutes, until just tender. Check at 4 minutes to see if you should uncover early to reduce the liquid volume. It's a somewhat soupy dish, but you don't want tons of liquid.

Add salt and white pepper to taste, re-stir the potato flour/cornstarch mixture, and pour it evenly over the dish, and stir fry until the liquid thickens.

Serve hot.

As an adult, I fall asleep quickly around 2200, but wake up around 0200 or 0300, and do nothing more than a light doze the rest of the night.

It was my first Thanksgiving as an AF officer; for the squadron Thanksgiving meal the officers and NCOs were to produce the meat. I went with a ham because it was easy to prepare. Most, as you might expect, went with turkey. The day of the event, I encountered something I didn't even know was possible: a fried turkey. I tried some of this amazing invention and found it to be quite tasty. But I was so far gone from fried food I didn't even know this was doable OR a thing. I have since learned different.

Hell, there's such a thing as chicken fried bacon, from Snook, TX.

Should plan a Trump Re-election Menu next.

What the food is like at Trump's White House events
https://tinyurl.com/yxqxfry3

First lady Melania Trump and her staff organized the menu, which included:

First Course

Goat Cheese Gateau
Tomato Jam
Buttermilk Biscuit Crumbles
Young Variegated Lettuces

Main Course

Rack of Spring Lamb
Burnt Cipollini Soubise
Carolina Gold Rice Jambalaya

Dessert

Nectarine Tart
Creme Fraiche Ice Cream


and check out the picture of the grills at the link:

White House chefs were spotted grilling steaks on June 18, 2019 for the Congressional picnic.

The White House described the menu for the 2019 Congressional picnic as such:

"charred lemon chicken, grilled plank salmon, charcoal grilled rib eye steak, and Baja shrimp tacos. Other sides include house made kettle chips, fresh salad greens harvested by the National Park Service from the White House garden, and locally grown vegetables and fresh fruits from California, Georgia, and Washington State. Dessert includes White House Honey and a variety of homemade cookies, brownies, and pies topped with vanilla ice cream."


There is an Irish feast, Saudi, etc. Go check it out. It's really fun to read and the pictures are great.

515 The 2020 U.S. presidential election has become the single biggest betting event of all time at the U.K.-based Betfair Exchange. Gamblers have wagered over $300 million so far and there are five days left before Election Day.

... the best predictor is to watch the number of people betting on one side. In 2016, more people placed bets on Trump to win than Hillary Clinton. During Brexit, more people bet on the referendum passing. For this election, 57% of gamblers are placing bets on Trump on Betfair.

Anchovy Buitter is good on a steak. Though in all honesty it sorta rings the same bells that adding a shot of Worcestershire sauce and a dab of butter would.

I like the addition of the capers though, so I'll probably make this or just wing it as a finishing sauce.

539 Anchovy Buitter is good on a steak. Though in all honesty it sorta rings the same bells that adding a shot of Worcestershire sauce and a dab of butter would.

I like the addition of the capers though, so I'll probably make this or just wing it as a finishing sauce.

Right now, I'm making a batch of Tomato Jam. Never made it before but it sounded good and more importantly, it used up about three and a half pounds of the ripest of the tomatoes.

The kitchen smells good enough to eat right now.

578 On CBS Sunday Morning today, it seemed like every other segment was political, and done to paint Trump in a bad light. In one of the segments, they talked about the peaceful transfer of power, and how in the past, no matter how acrimonious the election season, the loser would throw their support to the victor. Trump is apparently going to upend all that.

Of course, when talking about past elections, they didn't bring up 2016.

Thank you thank you for the recipes! I have them printed and will try them this week.
Every year we get a 1/2 pig from Minnesota (a good friend goes up for harvest and brings back the meat) and we get lovely ham and bacon, so I will try these recipes with the MN bacon and ham.
Really appreciate all the great recipes from the blog.

657 Rasmussen says it 51-47 Biden in FL

He can't get there numerically - these polling firms have to know this - even with a fifth grade education you can add it up.

- 9.4M total votes total in FL in 2016
- Maybe 10.2M in 2020, so 2M votes left on Election Day (ED)
- Dems up right now by 90K early votes, probably only 60K by Monday - this counts both mail in and early votes in person
- Early votes (EV) for Dems were up 110k on ED in 2016 so behind 50K EV from 2016 going into ED 2020
- Reps vote 66% vs Dems 33% on election day, this is known
- 66% Rep votes of 2M votes is 1.2M votes on ED
- 33% of Dem votes of 2M votes is 650K votes on ED

What about Independents? - let's say it's a split 50/50 so it doesn't matter (Trump is winning ID as we sit thought) and they take nothing away from either man's total...

Trump wins by ~ 470K to 550K votes or 4% to 5% in Florida and there is no way for the Dems to get that math to work for them....

671 Microwave popcorn is almost tasty, but the industrial oils .. and that smell ... convenient for sure.

The Reddenbacher Mafia is way over rated. Jiffy Time white popcorn is superior in all respects. Yellow popcorn is designed to pop into large tough kernals that don't fall apart when pre-popped and put into bags. It also has lots more hulls that tend to to stick in teeth.

As an Iowanian, I make lots of popcorn. An electric skillet works about as well as anything.

I was digging through the attic and found one of those dedicated popcorn poppers. Fill with oil, orange plastic lid, and holes to let butter melt through? I tried it a few times, and it just doesn't work as well as stovetop or skillet popcorn.

I had bought a new cookbook, CBD linked a recipe from the author's website in the last food thread, Half Baked Harvest.

This is a very different recipe I want to try. What do you all think of this? Her recipes are very different, many very creative using simple ingredients.

I combined the instructions with the ingredient list.

PB and J Grilled Cheese
Serves 2

Using 3 T of salted butter, coat one side of each crusty whole-wheat or sourdough bread slice.
Spread the non-buttered side of the two pieces with blueberry jam (store bought or homemade*).
Spread the non-buttered side of the other two pieces with natural creamy or crunchy peanut butter (not the sugared peanut butter we normally eat).
Place a slice of good quality sharp cheddar cheese on the peanut butter sides and close up the sides to make the sandwich.

Melt the remaining T of butter over medium heat.
Cook 2-3 mins per side, or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.

She is adamant about buying the natural peanut butter, good quality sharp cheddar (not slices), and a glass of ice cold milk to wash it down.

*she offers her quick blueberry jam recipe

684 I actually bought this before the Goya kerfuffle, but afterwards went back and bought every box on the shelf just in case it stopped being available: Sazon Goya (con cilantro y achiote). I've used it in wine-glazed beef stew, chicken casserole, fajitas (which is what I originally ally bought it for), cream of mushroom soup, as a dry rub for ribs, and mixed with a little balsamic vinegar and avocado oil as a marinade. I've sprinkled it directly on grilled pork chops and it is fantastic. I love it. It gives everything a savory kick that is hard to describe. Cons: it has msg and dyes - not sure why they put the dyes in. It is paprika- colored but does not contain paprika. I could probably make it myself because the ingredients seem simple enough: garlic, cumin, coriander and annatto. But since I'm lazy I'll just keep buying this.

702 Breaking news comrades: The KGB...I mean.. FBI is investigating alleged harassment of Biden campaign bus by Trump supporters in Texas.


Posted by: TheQuietMan at November 01, 2020 06:10 PM (n4qfV)
----------------------


Oh it's a problem that the Biden campaign gets to feel intimidated, the way I feel every day of my life, living as I do in a blue part of a blue state?

Even though the Biden bus had plenty of security and cops, and I'm out here on my own? If I try and defend myself I'll end up dead (like those patriots in Portland and Denver) or thrown in jail (like Kyle in Kenosha).

We have taken the American flag down from the front of our house. It was the only American flag for blocks in any direction. We were starting to feel like we would be the first house attacked, since we are surrounded by BLM signs, and Biden/whatshername, and all the other SJW signs and flags.

709 604 Of course, when talking about past elections, they didn't bring up 2016.

Nor would they bring up 2000. The Clintonistas trashed the west wing, and even pulled the 'W' keys out of the keyboards.

Of course, they probably ignored or rewrote history regarding the Florida vote fraud the Demonic Party was trying to pull off.
Posted by: at November 01, 2020 06:00 PM (C+evo)

----------------------------------

Actually, they did mention 2000. They focused, though, on Gore's second concession call, saying while he didn't agree with the SC decision, he abided by their ruling.

And the way they tried to portray Trump's foreign policy as a disaster was something to behold. Apparently, China wants Trump to win, because that will somehow let China surpass the US as a world power (they got this straight from a Chinese comedian. Seriously.)

727 684 I actually bought this before the Goya kerfuffle, but afterwards went back and bought every box on the shelf just in case it stopped being available: Sazon Goya (con cilantro y achiote). I've used it in wine-glazed beef stew, chicken casserole, fajitas (which is what I originally ally bought it for), cream of mushroom soup, as a dry rub for ribs, and mixed with a little balsamic vinegar and avocado oil as a marinade. I've sprinkled it directly on grilled pork chops and it is fantastic. I love it. It gives everything a savory kick that is hard to describe. Cons: it has msg and dyes - not sure why they put the dyes in. It is paprika- colored but does not contain paprika. I could probably make it myself because the ingredients seem simple enough: garlic, cumin, coriander and annatto. But since I'm lazy I'll just keep buying this.
Posted by: Gem at November 01, 2020 06:14 PM (kIHih)

I have some of that, but I haven't tried it yet. Thanks for the detailed review! I'll have to look into using it now.

I get a lot of use out of Goya Adobo Seasoning With Cumin, myself. It's got several of my favorite spices, it doesn't fall off my steak and burn in the pan, and it's like $2 for an 8-oz shaker. Just a great, cheap, everyday seasoning.

If they are right, and they may well be since independents are fluid, I think we can safely say Trump wins Florida just north of 4 % - this is why a lot of Dems are panicking tonight...

783 657 Rasmussen says it 51-47 Biden in FL
He can't get there numerically - these polling firms have to know this - even with a fifth grade education you can add it up.

- 9.4M total votes total in FL in 2016
- Maybe 10.2M in 2020, so 2M votes left on Election Day (ED)
- Dems up right now by 90K early votes [now 100k], probably only 60K by Monday - this counts both mail in and early votes in person
- Early votes (EV) for Dems were up 110k on ED in 2016 so behind 50K EV from 2016 going into ED 2020
- Reps vote 66% vs Dems 33% on election day, this is known

What about Independents? - let's say it's a split 50/50 so it doesn't matter (Trump is winning ID as we sit thought) and they take nothing away from either man's total...

Trump wins by ~ 470K to 550K votes or 4% to 5% in Florida and there is no way for the Dems to get that math to work for them....
Posted by: Boswell at November 01, 2020 06:08 PM (w2LAm)

Let me be contrarian. First, Rasmussen is actually 48-47 today.

Why shouldn't I's tend more strongly to Biden (think NH, compared to 2016), or likewise elderly R's who fear coronavirus? All those early R-votes might be from them, avoiding the polling places. Also, 66-33 on-day split is known... via polls. And who trusts those?

Also, data show 8.9M early votes, so only 1.3M left by your 10.2M estimate.

I would put Trump's chances in FL at about 80%: someone will be right and someone will be wrong come Tuesday, and I don't think it's a sure thing that it's the "early vote" model that's correct.

Well, he is an asshole, but he does pay attention.

You are making assumptions about the number of potential (but uncast) votes. You are extrapolating from previous years, but the situation is radically different. You simply do not know how many of those potential votes will be cast. For all we know, more Republicans are not going to vote on ED, and more Democrats will, and the Democrats will eke out a slim victory.


As I said to Boswell, I think he (and you) are probably correct, but I am not confident of any vote until it is actually cast for President Trump.

852 You are making assumptions about the number of potential (but uncast) votes. You are extrapolating from previous years, but the situation is radically different. You simply do not know how many of those potential votes will be cast. For all we know, more Republicans are not going to vote on ED, and more Democrats will, and the Democrats will eke out a slim victory.


As I said to Boswell, I think he (and you) are probably correct, but I am not confident of any vote until it is actually cast for President Trump.

14% growth in registrations. 9.1M votes in 2016.

It isn't a stretch that there will be 10.3M votes this year.

8.3M votes already cast.

So 1.7M votes will be cast on Election day at a minimum.

It is a kick to listen to some conversations I've had w the missus while driving.

Honestly they're all about the same these days. Get one that does 1080p. I've got one that has a front and rear camera that record simultaneously to the same SD card. Thinkware F800P.

I think Biden voters would be much less likely to vote in person on Election Day. I think they're way more worried about Winnie the Flu than Trump voters are.

916 Yeah, this thing is far from over and my one worry is how many people showed up early that usually show up on Election Day for Republicans. Since Republicans have normally shown up in greater numbers that comforting, but the ratio is probably lower.

917 @898 "I'm not him" isn't a winning campaign message?

---------------------

"I'm not her" did work to a certain extent in 2016. There's an awful lot of people (including me) who essentially held their nose and voted for Trump because Hillary Clinton could not be allowed back into the White House.

But Trump did actually have some plans and ideas up that didn't scare the electorate when people started to examine them closely.

or, when I am camping in a spot with no creeks or rivers murmuring nearby.

Some of the early vote totals people are using don't have mail ins included or estimated.

In my opinion, these patriots did nothing wrong. Instead, the FBI & Justice should be investigating the terrorists, anarchists, and agitators of ANTIFA, who run around burning down our Democrat run cities and hurting our people!

Not much help. I was told my BP was too high to get the prednisone burst I had before, that worked. So I got a muscle relaxant to take at bedtime.

I'm not sure I want to take that after my drinking to help aleive the pain. Maybe not a good idea.

1006 So, how do we crowd-fund a restaurant called "Hot Salty Greasy Crunchy"? Just a big room full of serpentine bars, snaking back and forth, serving plates fitting this description, with a great by-the-glass list, great craft cocktails, and 2 dozen great drafts.
