Food Thread: "What's in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet"

spotted dick sponge.jpg

[Hat Tip: OregonMuse]

The idea of Spotted Dick is a good one (fat, fruit, sugar, flour), and I am sure that with another name I would have ordered it somewhere. But it's tough to get past that name!

What other foods are named poorly, or amusingly, or oddly?

******

Now that summer is in full swing, basil is no longer expensive and crappy. Pesto is one of the glories of cooking, but what to drink while you are making it?

basil gimlet.jpg

  • 3 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 4 basil leaves

Put everything in a shaker with ice, shake the hell out of it, pour it into a cocktail glass and garnish with a basil leaf.

I guess you can call it a basil gimlet. One of these days I think I'll try it with tonic...sort of a souped-up G&T.

******

Dad Cooks Dinner is one of my favorite cooking sites. Not because he is innovative or a great chef...he freely admits that he isn't. But everything is so relaxed and simple and fun. It's just cooking! Unfortunately the site got wonky for me, so it's tough to enjoy, but this recipe, Jalapeno Cheeseburgers With Grilled Onions looks like fun.
******

And speaking of summer, corn is finally ripe enough! Three minutes in boiling water, and it didn't even need butter or salt. Yum!

Tomatoes are another story. If anyone extolls the joys of "Jersey tomatoes" to you, point and laugh. Maybe in a bygone time, but not nowadays.

Those are the two summer foods that I most look forward to. Most of the rest of the summer stuff is good, but for me it's nothing ethereal.

Am I missing something special? What are your favorite summer foods?

******

There is a local fried chicken joint called Chicken Supreme that I just discovered, and damn, it is fantastic. It was started 40 years ago by a Greek immigrant who bought an existing restaurant and then began sacrificing regularly to Hestia, or whoever is the God of cooking (if there is one). Whatever he did, it worked.

The crust is unlike anything I have tried...almost as if there is cornmeal in it. Sort of a fine crunch without it being dry and grainy. Great stuff!

******

This is one of my standard dishes when I have absolutely no idea what to make and I need something to feed the brats or something quick for lunch or just to have more than a stick of celery and a ramekin of bacon fat in the refrigerator. It's good and hearty, and can be jazzed up with whatever else you have floating around.
Penne With Ham And Peas

1 pound penne rigate, cooked as directed
1/2 pound Ham, Deli or smoky Virginia ham 1/4 inch chunks
1/2 pound Frozen Peas
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2/3 cup half and half
4 ounces shallots, sliced 1/8" thick
2 cloves Garlic, sliced paper-thin
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 ounce olive oil
2 ounces Italian parsley, chopped
Salt
Black Pepper


Add olive oil to sauté pan on medium-high heat. Add ham cubes and sauté until they begin to brown, about three-five minutes.

Turn down flame to medium and add shallots, sauteing for a few minutes until shallots are translucent and beginning to brown.

Turn heat to low and add garlic and red pepper flakes, sautéeing for a few minutes until garlic softens.

Add penne to boiling water and cook as instructed for firm pasta (al dente).

Add peas to sauté pan and stir occasionally until warmed.

Add half & half to sauté pan and turn heat to medium until liquid bubbles and thickens, stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta, reserving one cup of the cooking water.

Add pasta and Parmesan cheese to sauté pan, tossing gently until coated.

Taste and correct seasoning.

Serve with a few grinds of fresh black pepper and a sprinkle of chopped parsley.

26 Pigs in a Blanket wouldn't sound very appetizing if you never heard of it before. As it is, if someone says Pigs in a Blanket, virtually nobody pictures some hogs wrapped up in a blanket lying in their sty. We know what the phrase means, so that's what comes to mind.

Sweet mercy, that Stargazy Pie is a torture device. Leave it in the interrogation room, and the perp will be singing just to make it leave.


Summer specialities to me are: tomatoes, preferably beefsteak varieties, sweet corn, peaches, cantaloupe, fresh green beans and black eyed peas. Yes, they are eaten on New Year's, but they are supposed to be eaten soon after picking in July and August, seasoned with bacon, onion and lots of black pepper, and sopped with cornbread dripping with butter. (Or margarine, in my case, which is a sad, sad substitute) All of the above could make me a dedicated vegetarian, if I could eat it fresh.

Stargazy Pie (English Sardine Pie)
In this whimsical Cornish dish, whole sardines poke their heads through the crust of a savory pie filled with bacon, hard-boiled eggs, and a mustard-laced custard

don't know if it's any worse that this, though:

The meat, which chefs say tastes like wild rabbit or game, is dark and usually slow-cooked before being made in casseroles, hot-pots or pies. As there is not much flesh on the squirrel, a whole one provides enough meat for a single pie.

Why, I'd love to! We got a car in Bristol where son and family live, and drove down to Plymouth where we visited the Mayflower Gate. There is a small museum across the street from the site, which was worth the time. I like small museums because I don't do well standing up for long periods of time.

We also went to Lizard, and to Lizard Point, which is the furthest south you can go in England. We tried to stay out of London, not wanting to be driven into the Thames by a practitioner of the Religion of Pieces.

Drove through Glastonbury, and went to Glastonbury Abbey, which is where King Arthur is said to have been buried.

Sort of "road less traveled" trip this time.

Iceland on the way home, five days of wondering how people make a life knowing a volcano will erupt every 4 years whether they need one or not. Fabulous trip.

Posted by: L, Elle at July 16, 2017 04:11 PM (Rsi2C)


Blood sausage is also called black pudding, and in South America there is a version called morcilla which uses rice as a thickener and various spices to make it wonderful.

It's, you know, part of the ethos to use everything but the squeal.

Oh, and Stonehenge, duh. They now have a museum there. The first time I was there it was just drive up, walk over and look at it, then drive away. Now they are protecting it better, and you can actually get closer to the stones now than back then, on a path that comes quite close to the stones. We didn't allow any time for the museum, not knowing it was there, but if you want to learn all you can about it, allow half a day, I'd say.

If you go to London, consider seeing a Shakespeare play at the Globe Theater in Original Pronunciation.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPlpphT7n9s

There is also the Harry Potter tours in London, not sure where.

We went to Wales, to Cardiff, to see the rift where the TARDIS refuels. There is a Doctor Who exhibit that is supposed to be there for the summer. Didn't take it in, just walked around. Doing a Hop-on-hop-off bus tour in Cardiff made me think that it would be a good idea in London. I have seen those tours there.

We were parked in a garage across from where Justin Bieber was to perform that evening. I was rather glad to get away from that in case they Manchestered the performance, but it evidently went off without a hitch.

Pretty sure "Toad in the Hole" is nothing more than a fried egg, cooked inside a hole cut in a piece of bread. It keeps the egg from spreading out too much, and toasts the bread in the butter at the same time. It's not hard to like.

Not Shakespeare, but I thought about catching Lion King, as it is also something on my bucket list, and doubt I'll ever get to New York to see it. London is a pretty acceptable substitute.

I am a huge Potter nerd, so it is something I am interested in, but I have read it is pretty much 1/2- a full day thing you have to plan on. I am also a huge history nerd too, so things like the Roman Baths or Stonehenge or Cambridge are all toss ups.

But, sad as it may be, I feel like Potter is a pretty limited thing, whereas the other things will be there pretty much forever, so if I ever get back, I would have a chance to see them.

Grocery store berries were developed to take a lot of handling and time before they're eaten.
They're okay if you want strawberries in Michigan in the winter, but they're not nearly as good as local berries that ripen on the vine.

The trick is to freeze the cubes of watermelon so you don't need to ice down the drink and have it be less "impactful" if you know what I mean. Tequila, triple sec, fresh lime juice, a bit of simple syrup and frozen watermelon cubes. Whir it up in a blender. Summer in a glass my friends.

141 Summer foods:
Raspberries right from our patch on a bowl of cereal or in a pie.
Blueberries (fairly local from someone else's patch via the supermarket) on cereal or in blueberry pancakes with pure maple syrup from northern Michigan.
My mother-in-law's tomatoes, on a BLT or tacos.
Best of all, apples from my three apple trees. All are a soft, tart cooking type of apple. One is a Dutchess, not sure what the other two are. They are great for apple pie, apple fritters, or fresh applesauce. We don't get a crop every year due to late frosts so they're special. This year we have a bumper crop.

Westminster Abbey is lovely. Isaac Newton, he of the apple, is buried there, as is William Wilberforce, the man who spent most of his lifetime working to end the slave trade in England. Of course, it would be a prime target for a disgruntled Muzzie.

I preferred Stonehenge to the Roman baths, but we went to both on our honeymoon. Did a lot of sightseeing by getting a coach tour two or three days in a row. Arrived at the coach location by 9 am each day, saw Stratford upon Avon and the Shakespeare buildings, Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, and I'm not sure what all else, but got back to London about 6 pm, ate, then went to the theater every evening. Saw Starlight Express, Evita, Cats, Noises Off, and some Elvis thing. Go to the half-price ticket booth in Leicester Square, see what is on offer for the evening. I saw Jersey Boys there a few years ago, in which the music was very well-performed. The stage productions seem to be getting very "use your imagination" for staging, but the music is usually top notch.

154 Okay, so today I made lunch for the fam, no big. I made a sort of open face turkey hot sandwich/deconstructed turkey manhattan deal.

Turkey and bread and mashed potatoes and homemade gravy. Made peas for those who so chose to partake.

I sent the guy a picture, which I don't always do, but sometimes. He nearly always compliments my food pictures, but this time he said "Interesting." which is fine, because I understand not everything is his cup of tea. Most of the stuff he eats isn't my cup of tea.

Anyway he was surprised I was eating peas, because he knows how notoriously picky I am, and I told him the picture was of my Mom's plate, I don't eat peas. His response: "It's a shame since it's the only healthy thing on that plate."

So, I'm a bit taken aback at that point, and explain turkey is healthy, but he acts like he wants to say something else, so I say, "What?" He replies. "Nothing, I don't want to ruin your meal."

Well.....that ship has sailed at that point, and I tell him it's too late, just tell me what you were going to say. He keeps repeating nothing, it's not important blah blah. So, I pull out the big guns: "Fine."

Well, ladies, I am sure many of you know that "fine" is like the magic word or something, because his next statement was..."I just thought it was interesting you rejected the healthiest thing on the plate."

I said I didn't "reject" it...I don't like peas. Our conversation ended shortly thereafter with terse, "okay bye" from each of us.

So guys....do you think it's okay to comment on the health choices of your lady when cooking/eating, even if it's not for you?

I don't know what he was going to say, but if it had anything to do with my weight, I would be fit to be tied. I know he is mad at me, because I didn't "let it go" when he kept saying, "nothing" because I just know him and I know how he is.

I just can't imagine my Dad ever commenting on something my Mom eats....but I could see my brother in law doing it.

Did I overreact? Or was he being a d-nozzle?

Assign fault please....and go.

163 He was being a d-nozzle. If the question was, "what is the healthiest thing in this assortment and what should I eat?", that would be the correct answer. However, it appears he was trying to make you think that turkey is raised in inhumane conditions, then make you beg.

Don't marry him. Marry someone who thinks you are just great the way you are, and so that when he makes a comment about food, you don't immediately think, "Is he making comments about my weight?"

And, my mother would say that peas are the least healthy of all the things on that plate, since they are pure starch, not really a veg.

172 Tickled Pink,
I go with the idea that other adults don't need my comments about how "healthy" their food choices are.

Also, when I was growing up people ate all of the kinds of things that the food police bitch about now. Eggs, beef, pork, bacon, potatoes, bread, desserts two meals a day, and so on. Of course we also ate fruit and vegetables.

Few people were overweight, almost no children were overweight. As far as health, my mom lived to 93 and my dad lived to 97. I still have 3 aunts alive who are in or near their nineties.

Enjoy your hot turkey sandwich.

Never mind that the classic show had characters like Romana and the Rani that were female Time Lords, and interesting ones at that, because why create new characters when you can just pull the lameass move of obliterating existing canon and replacing it with your own set of rules?

185 Hey everybody.

Not a 'weird name' per se, but years ago at my all-time fave pizza place (now closed), they also sold sub sandwiches.

The proprietor, Penny, was also a co-owner of the chain, and had named the sandwiches, but she apparently wasn't that creative.

Anyway, her tuna sub was called... Tuna Tuna Tuna. I used to josh her about that. "Bet you were up all night thinking of that name, weren'tcha?" Good thing she had a sense of humor. :-)

To be perfectly fair, he's never mentioned my size/weight. Not once. Never even implied it. He's only ever called me lovely and beautiful. So, maybe it was a little unfair of me to assume that was the path the conversation would have went down, considering there was not even one iota of it ever being an issue before.

I know how he feels about healthy food. But, he also likes pizza and french fries and burgers and chocolate and all sweets really. So, how was I to know that gravy on bread/potatoes was going to be the thing to set him off?

BBQ sauce instead of ketchup is a hit with my family.

Many meat loaf recipes don't call for milk, but find one that does. Milk is a great ingredient in meat loaf.

Another tip is to caramelize the onions first instead of putting them in raw. Caramelize the onions with peppers if your palate so enjoys.

332 Blackberries. Yeah, it's that time. Well, almost over now for NorCal valley. It gets so hot here that the moment valley berries reach peak sugar? They immediately begin to 'raisin' on the vine. 113f pretty much torches ripe berries. Which means they really aren't the finest fresh picked to put on yoghurt ect.

I made about two gallons syrup and distributed it to friends and family. I gained weight because pancakes, waffles and french toast floated on a sea of berry syrup are GAINZZ.

So, one last picking session for berry-mead. Gonna try pitching two gallons berry/ honey wort with a pint of very robust top fermenting ale yeast. Wait thrre days. Taste. Filter thru muslin. Pitch wine yeast and store in basement four-five weeks. Taste. I think it will be really nasty, but who knows.

No, I don't really want to waste time bottling. If it tastes somewhat ok, then It gets consumed.

The short answer, which is really the only answer, is....yeah I could. Even if it meant making two different meals sometimes. Even if it meant nearly puking from the smell of some of the types of foods he likes. Yes, I can handle it. I would.

But, could I handle him critiquing the health quality of my food? That's a different question altogether.

I wish I wasn't the way I am I do. I really wish I had a more diverse palate. I am picky. I know I'm picky. But...I like what I like. And, more accurately...I don't like what I don't like...which is a lot. I know it can be annoying.

It's one of the things I am worried most about when traveling overseas. I just don't know if the restaurants over there are as accommodating to pickiness as the ones in the States. Here, I can ask for a sandwich without X Y and Z or AB only, and they will make it exactly how I want it.

Well, yeah - but I wouldn't hesitate to use it in meatloaf. It's a very versatile seasoning. I use it on all sorts of meat and poultry dishes.

Just jab him with an Epi-pen if his throat starts to close up.

Been there, done that. Doc says, after you jab him with the epi....get to the ER.
One time, years ago, he pissed me off at a party. He also ate something that had beef in it.

I drove very slowly to the hospital. Stopped at all yellow lights. First and last time in my life that I've stopped at a yellow light.

349 Tami, if you have to use nothing but ground turkey, I would suggest adding as much fat as you can cram in there, like butter or olive oil. Maybe saute your onions in a heap o' fat, and soak your (torn!) bread in a little heavy cream. And put lots of herbs and spices in it. Maybe stuff like sage, Bell's seasoning, whatever you would use for your Thanksgiving turkey.

Here's the other problem...he's paleo. Can't do bread...although I do sneak a little bit of break crumbs in it.
And I can't eat shellfish.
Cooking around here is a effing nightmare.

351 344 Yup, Insomniac, that's what she is. My main hope is that I never have to shoot it at anything but a paper target. It's pretty lethal but quite user-friendly!

I have one too, which is probably why I remembered. The DA pull sucks, like most revolvers, but it is a nice solid revolver. One of these days if I'm ever employed again I'll get a trigger job on it.

361 The most interesting ingredient I add to meatloaf comes from my Mom.

She got the idea from a recipe she found long ago and far away.

Instead, of bread crumbs or bread or crackers, she used-

40% Bran Flakes in her meatloaf.

Give the meatloaf a better flavor and a nice density and texture.

Try it out next time you make a meatloaf.

Posted by: naturalfake at July 16, 2017 06:54 PM (9q7Dl)

362 I have a meatloaf recipe that calls for bottled chili sauce. It's really tasty. I tend to use oatmeal in meatloaf but this recipe uses crackers crushed up.

366 Oy, Tami. Okay, if he eats dairy, that's at least something.

Will he eat oats? You could soak oats in heavy cream and use that in place of the torn bread. I would still throw butter in too. Ground turkey is just too lean to make good meatloaf unless you add a lot of stuff to it, I think.

I know a lot of paleo peeps won't eat oats because of the GMO thing, but there are paleo-approved oats out there if you look for them.

Posted by: bluebell at July 16, 2017 06:57 PM (sBOL1)

367 Weasel, how close is your fridge to an outside wall? We had something like that happen during a really hot summer one time. I think something was working too hard in the freezer, or something like that (that's the scientific explanation, if you're wondering).

I think we have to dump everything into our other fridge and freezer, then unplug it, let everything right itself, then it worked fine when we plugged it back in.

Thanks bluebell. It's about 10 or 12 feet from an outside wall. I think what Is happening is the refrigerator is set at 38, but the door gets opened a lot so the compressor is running to keep the main compartment at that temp, nut the little meat and cheese compartment doesn't get opened much and so the cold air isn't exchanged with warm air as much, so it ends up staying a lot colder.

Not sure if he'd eat oats. They're not paleo but like I said, he's not a maniac about it.

I usually get the 85%/15% ground turkey to keep more of the fat. Not a fan of the 93%/7% mix.

I did throw some Boursin cheese in the meatloaf so there's that.

371 Steel-cut oats has a somewhat meat-like texture. I've seen and tasted it when used as faux meat texture in commercially made refrigerated vegetarian chorizo sausage products.

It's a healthful cerial filler - and inexpensive when bought from bulk bins at the grocery store.

I figured those were gross, until I had some (with mint, I think) at Gordon Ramsey's brewpub in Caesar's Palace in LV. Wow, those were good. And less mushy than I expected.

379 Cooking fresh sweet corn for three minutes is two minutes too long. I grow a number of tomato varieties and Rutgers, which is a Jersey tomato, is one of the better ones so I don't understand the put down. I have just picked my first Jersey boy, a Rutgers/Brandywine cross and am looking forward to first bite when it reaches peak ripeness.

Posted by: javapoppa at July 16, 2017 10:38 PM (xQEJJ)

380 Jersey tomatoes from actual farms are still the best. As is Jersey corn. It's the soil. From mass production operations of course those tomatoes will suck.
