Default Whatcha Got Cookin'?
Anybody making anything good? Please share!

I've got frozen shrimp and okra in the freezer and am thinking of making up some kind of a sautee or curry with tomatoes and spices, but I haven't figured it all out yet.

I also made some home fries out of potatoes, olive oil, onions, and paprika. I supposed they could go in with the shrimp and okra. I accidentally discovered that the home fries are amazing with just a little bit of Irish Mist mixed in.

Do you make them with potato? I've seen recipes without them.

Taco night, mufuckers.

I've got some tilapia marinating in lime/chilli stuff and I'm going to put fresh red cabbage & sour cream/garlic/cilantro sauce in 'em. Homemade tortillas too- aw yeah.

I'm making Ramen tonight. : /

Tomorrow I'm making pumpkin ravioli with my family's special red Italian sauce. Don't ask what's in the sauce (or what it even is) because I have no friggin' idea. We get it shipped to us from my aunt who refuses to share the recipe. Double : /

Stuffed salmon fillets w/ a lobster/crab-meat stuffing; edemame, blackbeans and peas w/a vinagrette sauce over brown rice; and a chocolate/mandarin orange bowl cake.

Like HarVee, I just ate a sammich (only roast beef instead of turkey), but there is some stuff I'm planning on making tomorrow or over the next couple of days, or have recently made.

Mashed Butternut squash--bake in the oven face-down and covered with cinnamon until tender, add a dash of milk and a bit more cinnamon, beat until smooth. Has a texture similar to mashed potatoes but tastes like some kind of pie filling--very yummy.

Veggie Scramble--broccoli, carrots, corn, peas, and a bit of cheese all cooked in with scrambled eggs.

Also, does it help that the sammich in question was roast beef and Colby cheese with horseradish sauce served on a roll and with a glass of cranberry-pomegranate juice?

anothereyjana - Thanks for including the recipe for the mashed butternut squash - I've never tried it sweet that way. I'll have to give that a go sometime. I love butternut. I usually just cook it up and mash it plain or with a bit of garlic, then put the mashed butternut on a whole wheat tortilla, put some cooked black beans on top, salsa, and Monterrey jack cheese and microwave it until the cheese melts. The sweetness of the squash offsets the beans and salsa nicely.

kattenijin - Could you share how you make chocolate/Mandarin orange cake?

Thanks for sharing! I'll share a similar type thing back that my son recommended: http://www.supercoolfoodblog.com/20...e-mug-cake.html


I haven't tried it yet, but find it interesting that it uses wine vinegar. He feels that it needs something to make it richer. I suggested butter and cream, but it wouldn't be vegan anymore.

I don't have much groceries/ food ingredients stored at home, so I usually cook some grilled cheese or instant noodles if I don't eat out

You sound like a typical college student

A variation on grilled cheese is cheese melted into a tortilla wrap with a little salsa inside - delicious!

I had oatmeal this morning. Probably for lunch I will have a nutella and banana smoothie.

mmmm - some of this sounds lovely. I do like butternut squashes. Last night was chasseur (I do a veggie adaptation), roast potatoes, peas and a quorn thingy - Him Indoors had chicken instead. We're trying to clear the freezer so we can defrost it. Then poached pears with creme fraiche (yum). Tonight, it's even easier: pasta with a tomato sauce (anchovies, garlic, chilli - fish for him, roasted goats cheese for me). We always have easy meals during the week. Sundays are my cooking days though this Sunday was an easy meal.

Frankokomando - oatmeal is one of my favorites. I've never heard of adding nutella to a smoothie. I know a couple of teenagers that just might go for that. I'm waiting for some strawberries to thaw now for a smoothie.

Maxon - that sounds wonderful! I would love to dine with you.

I just came back from the grocery and stocked up on the veggies that were about to go over (and cost less). Oddly out of season, but still appreciated, I have the makings of ratatouille. Using Julia Child's classic recipe as the guide, I've sliced and salted the eggplant and zucchini and will start frying them soon.

Oatmeal is great on a cold morning. I add cinnamon to it and it's really good. The recipe I have for the smoothie, it's suppose to be peanut butter instead of nutella, but since I can't stand peanut butter nutella is a good substitute. It makes the smoothie taste more chocolatey, but it's still kind of healthy for you. :D

Out and about with Haggis, and making sushi. And stuffing them into the haggis with lettuce. And putting sour cream onto the lettuce. That's making my teeth itch.

I'm a graduate of the Harvard business school. I travel quite extensively. I lived through the Black Plague and had a pretty good time during that. I've seen the EXORCIST ABOUT A HUNDRED AND SIXTY-SEVEN TIMES, AND IT KEEPS GETTING FUNNIER EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE IT.

'Ju got it man! I know how to make that, but I never do, I like salad better, and pasta. Scottish people play ball with Haggis, they eat with haggis, and they talk about them, and they also write funny stories about them, and make chicken haggis and hamburger haggis! Yeah they do all that....

I just made myself some bruschetta for lunch, with fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden and the tastiest artisan sourdough you'll ever find, bought at a local bakery. There's nothing like top quality ingredients to improve upon a simple dish.
