Cooking the Badges way: Just Fucking Wing It
« on: September 18, 2008, 06:04:35 am »
This will hopefully be a regular thing because I like to cook and it forces me to do my dishes.  The format will be: ingredients for all dishes, then instructions on how to cook everything at once cause that's how I roll.




HERE IS A DINNER FOR TWO THAT I COOKED TONIGHT AND ATE ALONE  :cry:

Sauteed apples & onions
1/2 large white onion
1 apple--I used Gala because that's what I had, but any tart variety should work
horseradish
fresh ground nutmeg--I have one of those whole nutmegs/grater deals, the end product is much sharper and more aromatic than pre-ground.  Also great in leek & potato soup, by the way.

I also considered putting in ginger, mustard, turmeric, cinnamon, or curry powder.  Anything warm and spicy would have worked.

Rosemary Pork Chops
2 pork chops
handful of rosemary
handful of garlic cloves

Mashed potatoes
2 potatoes
milk
(not as boring as it looks)

First things first, chop those potatoes up in little chunks and throw em in some boiling water.  Then slice your onion and put it in a skillet with some butter.  Cook to desired degree.  Slice apple, add to skillet.  Throw on desired spices.  Set aside.  Don't overcook or the apple will get mushy!  I learned this because I took too long deciding what to put on them :(
Chop each garlic clove in half or so, heat in a skillet with rosemary and olive oil. 
Remember those potatoes?  They should be boiled half to death now.  Mash the crap out of them!  (note to self: buy a potato masher)
Oh crap that garlic is looking a little brown.  No matter!  Scoop them out and put them in the potatoes.  Yum.
Throw your pork chops into the hot skillet, salt and pepper til they look good.  Cook til pink inside, especially if you're like me and leave the finding of a clean plate til the last minute, the residual heat will finish the job.


Yay food. 
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

YES!

Put some dried chives in with your mashed potatoes, makes them look super classy.

Also, I will eat with you.

FWIW: Mashed potatoes with no butter in them will be a capital crime when I am king.

Also, Maine potatoes > Idaho potatoes.

We don't have much to brag about so I try to work it in wherever I can.   :D

I thought it sounded delicious!

I have done the apple-onion type dish with granny smith apples and red onions (awesome colors) but I 've never added horseradish. 

I like horseradish, just don't do a lot with it....

Uhh.  A teaspoon or so?  Measuring is not part of the Just Fucking Wing It method.

I did not have enough garlic :(

I don't know it just seems weird to me.  Butter-lovers can add later but it's not how I roll.



I wish I'd had some rolls :(

-a zucchini
-two small yellow squash like thing
-several banana peppers
-"tabasco" peppers

Thinking...chicken noodle soup perhaps?


Also carrots fresh from the ground is mouth paradise.

If it wasn't for butter, I wouldn't exist.

But heck, if she doesn't like butter, she doesn't like it, ECH.

I like butter I do really.  Just not in mashed potatoes...
