How hot is it?

>> Sunday, June 28, 2009

Is your cookie dough baking on the counter top? Did you tires melt all over the driveway? Has your soul evaporated? Need a remedy?

Frozen lemonade. With blackberries. And vodka.


Won't Get Fooled Again!

>> Thursday, June 25, 2009

First it was this abomination of an appetizer pimped out by the one and only Pioneer Woman with a hearty second from millions of her minions. Could millions of minions be wrong? Seriously P-Dub? Seriously?

Then it was this one from Kate @ Warm Olives ... and Cool Cocktails. Ice Water Crackers. Essentially wet crackers fried in butter. What could go wrong, right? Oh. Right. That.

And now? Now there's this hot mess of a wreck from Sweetnicks in which I take Toffee Crack and turn it into Ass Crack. Using the last of the brown sugar, the last of the good butter, and the last of the chocolate leaving me with saltines topped with butter, brown, sugar and chocolate.

Okay internetz, I'm onto you now. No more Sandra Leeish cracker recipes. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me thrice?

Well, hell. Now I don't give a rat's rear right testicle how super simple and delicious you might claim your cracker thing to be, I. AIN'T. A-FALLIN'. FER. THAT. NO. MORE.

Know what goes on a cracker? Smoked gouda. That's what goes on a cracker. Not canned cheese, not water and least of all not the last of my chocolate!

(PS - you should go see Kate because I pink puffy heart her blog AND she alerted me to TasteStopping : Feasting on seconds! which is seven colors of awesome AND because I didn't really waste anything precious like bacon or chocolate trying to make her recipe.)


Notta Bowl of Hope

Not quite a Sadness Bowl, but not exactly a Bowl of Hope either.

Failure Pile in a Sadness Bowl *

Did you see Jon&Kate last night? I did. But I'm not proud of it. I felt dirty.

1. PeiWei leftovers. In a sadness bowl.



Sounds Nasty, Looks Nasty, Tastes? Not Nasty!

Honey Walnut Shrimp? With sweet mayonnaise sauce? Uhm, no thank you. Yes, I'm sure. Yes, I know it's very popular. No, I'm not allergic to nuts. Or mayonnaise. Or shrimp. Just, well, just no.

But the curiosity. It consumes me sometimes. Could it really be as bad as it sounds? Surely not.

Ohmysweetmotherofpearl. Yes! Sweet mayonnaise on big beautiful lightly battered and fried shrimp with honey candied walnuts. With broccoli. On rice. How could something so, so, so wrong be so right?

This is leftover from Yao take-out, but it's surely super easy and fast to do at home, I'd imagine it could be done before the rice is cooked if you start with shelled and de-veined shrimp.

1. honey walnut shrimp with broccoli and rice
2. remains of an un-wanted eggroll
3. the last of the free tomatoes


Neighbor's CSA Loss - My Gain

>> Wednesday, June 17, 2009

1. mixed summer squash sauteed with caramelized leeks, garlic and a little tomato
2. beef. it's what was for dinner.
3. part of a red bean bun

Edit for Yvo: Our neighbors were on vacation so we got to pick up their CSA goodies while they were gone. And eat them. The vegetables I mean, not the neighbors.


Chicken Enchiladas

>> Monday, June 15, 2009

1. Mexizona shrimp cocktail
2. saltines
3. roasted green chili and chicken enchilada with sour cream on the side


Ribs and Raspberries

>> Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Anyone else get meal ideas from This is why you're fat.?

No, me either.


When I saw this I suddenly couldn't get the Shack Tater outta my mind. And honestly? I didn't want to.

In fact I may or may not have forwarded it to Him, who may or may not have replied with "what kind of chips?" blah blah blah "want Joe's tonight?". I might have asked for an add-on of ribs. Or maybe not.

1. ribs & sauce with gratuitous green onion garnish
2. the most delicious raspberries I've ever eaten in my whole life
3. approximately ZERO cents worth of fabulous little yellow tomatoes (gift from co-worker's garden)


Cho Dang Leftovers

Did I mention my Mom came to eat visit this weekend? Well, she did and I'm happy to say we ate every meal like it was our last.


Pretty Pink Ume Soba - NOT Meat Strings

>> Thursday, June 4, 2009

1. cold ume soba noodles with a little parsley (dipping sauce not pictured)
2. grapefruit with lime zest
3. Armenian cucumber chunks

The last time I packed cold noodles they were a pasty mess by the time I was ready to eat them. Thanks to Just Hungry I've learned that you need to wash the noodles, rinsing alone isn't enough. Of course the last time I packed cold noodles they weren't pink either. And didn't prompt Boo to ask "is that MEAT?".


Better Than Raw Chicken

>> Wednesday, June 3, 2009

1. egg salad sandwich on squishy bread with basil
2. pea salad
3. 53 cents worth of tomato


When Chicken Tartar Fails

>> Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Okay, okay, the Chicken Tartar didn't fail. I did. Alright? I'm D. U. M. M. Dumm.

How's some nice grilled chicken sound? Maybe with a caprese salad? Sounded good to me too. Too bad I didn't take the chicken out of the freezer.

Rosati's to the rescue!

1. leftover deep dish
2. caprese salad with some three dollar tomato and the last of the balsamic reduction
