Crap..y'all are making me hungry.Now where's my sandwich...
Everyone has abandoned me? Where the heck are all the foodies?
Here's what I had for lunch yesterday: Mussamun Curry from my Thai take-out place, Tao's Hut. So so good!
Chicken, potatoes, cabbage, green peppers, basil leaves, amazing curry sauce. Yum Yum!
looks pretty good for takeout box.. :) rice and potatoes.. is that usual mix? never had that. but how was the rice? it looks "long" shaped.. and very see thru pale, that normally has meant a bit "soggy" taste. (not that i have really had any real good rice EVER. so my knowledge of rices is very limited.)
--and yes, i have been lost, away in dark lonely void.. only my old flashlights keeping me company. hahah--
actually.. cpf was down for a while, so i stopped coming to see whats up. :/
thats the way websites get rid of me.. hah. not beeing open to browse (cpf all the time "undermaintenance"), or update the look too much in one go.. so it wont feel familiar anymore.. (edcforums im lookin at you right now).
if cant find the place i look for.. i find other venues to hang out and read thru. (hokey ass message board is now cool.. hahah) i have few things im interested of and as time of year changes or other causes make me focus on one subject.. others loose, there is still limited time i spend online because i like to sleep too. :)
Sorry boys. I guess nonsence hit it on the head. I haven't been here 'cause I haven't gotten any posting notifications
which of course makes sense if the site ain't working.
I wonder why there have been so many problems lately.
By the way, getting ready to post something in the Jeers section in the market place about this crooked guy
that has my big Maha charger and won't give it back. Keep an eye out for it.
Also, check this post out :)
Damn, that curry looks great. I love curry, NOT too spicy but I love curry. We used to have this thai place
around here, great stuff and great service but both quality of food and service went down so I stopped going
there and haven't found a new one yet. Have eaten curry at a few other places but they didn't get close
to that thai place in food quality (when they were good). Damn! I guess I should have been in England (other
than India of course) to get some good curry.
My mom used to make chicken in curry and I used to eat the hell out of that.
Also, that burger with chili and cheese looked gooey and good :)
Nonsence, the best rice I have had is the regular, WHITE, uncle ben's rice.
Cook according to the instructions and when you're done, it should be perfect
(if you did it correctly) and the pot have holes from where the steam has come out or rather,
the rice in the pot.
Put some butter in there and stir it up with some salt (or even better, put salt in, in the beginning)
and you don't need anything else with it. It's amazing.
Knew a dude that was a chef and he used it all the time. Thing was amazing.
Missed you dudes :)
Well I just had me some musubi @ 02:15! No pitchers though, I was too hungry!
Certain unappetizing posts have been moved to their own thread. :sick2:
oo.. eyeballs got removed. (empath, once again, over here, everything edible might be good on a sandwich.. hahahah dont knock it before you try it. ;))
yeah. uncle ben is stable diet here. :) i think they still are the best i can find in normal supermarket here. i normally have 2 kinds in my kitchen.. those 5 minute quick rice and the "normal" uncle ben. dont like the bag stuff.
the wholegrain one was a disappointment ..tried it twice and it didnt feel right. it feelt too grainy. might try the whitened wholegrain next time (maybe it is in the manufacturing process the difference?) -going tru unclebens website.. i found they have flavored rice too.. hmm.. never seen one in store.. gonna check next time i go looking for rice. althou.. i somehow prefer rice to have very little flavor on itself, the sauce and other foods flavor it.. or it mellows them down. :)
been intrigued trying out some oriental foodshops to see what kind of rice they offer.. but i have understood that the lone shop in town closed it doors years ago.
i kinda figured they would go under as they tried to sell too specialized stuff, only bit too early to normal folks here to appreciate it (now it might do ok) and they were renting storespace in too expensive area in center of town.. rents were way too high for such an small special shop.. profit margins not good enough.
but i try to remember this next time i go to bigger town... they have their shops still. (they do offer to ship it home too but postages here will make cheap rice a novelty price by the time it arrives thru post. hah)
and i think i still want to buy a sack of rice.. just some general brand. one that is not too sticky when cooked (not too "porrige" and "oriental finger food" rice). and store it into summer cottage for long time storage food item. it stays edible a long time, and easy to store and cook if needed.

So, you think Empath's got a weak stomach? :)
-- yeah. uncle ben is stable diet here. :)
So, why are you asking about a better rice? That stuff is (or at least WAS) amazing...

Well, everything instant usually gets worse...I would eat more rice if it wasn't for the fact that I always mess it up and NEVER got it the way this other dude made it... :(
-- the wholegrain one was a disappointment ..tried it twice and it didnt feel right. it feelt too grainy. might try the whitened wholegrain next time (maybe it is in the manufacturing process the difference?) -going tru unclebens website.. i found they have flavored rice too.. hmm.. never seen one in store.. gonna check next time i go looking for rice. althou.. i somehow prefer rice to have very little flavor on itself, the sauce and other foods flavor it.. or it mellows them down. :)
Never been much on the dark stuff. My x wife used to like it but I never did.

Well, that shouldn't be too hard should it?
No kiddin' :)
..speaking of pedestrian fare..
I freeze the chicken after I cube then boil the tray of chicken breasts! Presently they eat two trays a week (depending on the size of the tray). I posted their photos in a few threads in CPF, but here's my two ...
Harlee "The Vicious Attack Dog" is on the left and Calvin's on the right! I bailed Harlee out of the animal shelter in Phoenix, AZ after my partner of 9 years Baby ....
.... passed on (she joined me a week or so after she suffered third degree burns during a raid at her previous owners Meth Lab). You can see the scars on her back in this photo taken when we were camping (it was actually till we could find a RV Park that would allow a Pit Bull in) out in the desert just north of Nellis AFB in Vegas.
And I adopted Calvin while I was on contract in California. Sorry for drifting off topic, just thought I'd share a photo of the two.
Awesome....I love puppy dogs.
Here are some of mine and as for posting the dog pics here and drifting off topic, I have no problem with it but the powers to be do so you DO have
to talk about food in your posts. HOWEVER, since dogs are edible (as much as I hate the idea), I think we're good :)
Georgi the Rottie and NO, I didn't name him :)
Here's a pup I picked up at a local car wash and found a home for him....I just love the pic :)
XXXXXXXXX wife with my first Rottie...he was a good size dog (and way overweight there)
My first Rottie (Pookie) and a rescue cat. Coolest damn cat I've known...
Noodle the Pug
Pookie the Rottie
Here's Mickey, we drove from Charlotte, NC to Manassas, VA to get him from the
foster people when adopting him. 8 hours one way.
As many Danes, he was a goof ball and with an EXTREMELY unusual color scheme.
Normally, they have much smaller patterns...http://www.1stchoicemonroe.com/images/pets/mickey.htm
Tiny dog :)
Here are a few more pics of him...(the other dog on there is Maggie that I fostered. She had been used as fighting bait and her hind quarters looked like someone
had stabbed her repeatedly with a knife :(
Maggie again http://www.georgepics.com/p439987349
Zeus that I fostered http://www.georgepics.com/p27458542/h2e447009#h2e447009
Here are a few other pics I took. None are my dogs but some have some captions so check'em out :)
A friend's dogs that I took pics of http://www.georgepics.com/p344587208
..and finally some of my x wife's cats http://www.georgepics.com/p261457910
By the way, mods, remember, everything I'm showing here is edible and if that's not good enough,
let me say that I just placed an order for $200 worth of Bulgarian food including feta (REAL FETA) cheese
and some sausage thingies that are awesome :)
Anyone want any teaser pics? :)
Cute doggies. :)
I love feta cheese, especially on salads. Bleu cheese too, on burgers it's the bomb. Crumbly cheeses are handy that way.
You're right about all the above bro.
Do you want a link to where to get GOOD feta cheese and other goodies Nick?
Absolutely love your photos! THis is what I cube/quarter, boil then freeze! ...
Hey guys, I've got a rack of pork ribs in the freezer but I've never cooked ribs.
Wanna do the oven thing and then the grill. Anyone got any good recipes that are not TOO complicated?
Also, what do you think of me cutting it up and running it in the pressure cooker before putting on the grill
instead of doing it in the oven?
Should be the same thing, right?
Just cover em in barbecue sauce put em on a cookie sheet covered in foil and bake em low and slow till they fall apart. At least I think that's the easiest way to do it.
What about all the people that do them in the oven first or steam'em?
That's what all the restaurants do (I think) and they're awesome if you do them right..
Nick and others in the US. I just got this sausage yesterday and I have to say it's AWESOME!
oh, btw, had a sandwich today. (as this thread is about to drop into oblivion.. to second page, so its about time to eat a sandwich again)
it was couple slices of buttermilk/sourmilk bread, butter of course on all three slices, bottom layer had 2 cherry tomatos crushed between my fingers into more flat shape, a slice of swiss cheese, 2 slices of smoked ham, then the middle bread (which i always wonder if i actually should butter on both sides or just keep doing basic one sided method with butter facing downwards) on top of that there was one small grilled pork steak left over from yesterday (microwaved it a bit to warm it up and therefore melt the top breads butter that faced down again).. i was actually thinking to put the cheese into the microwave with the steak too but i forgot it.. as i normally dont eat cheese on my sandwiches i didnt remember it existed.
after eating it i was a bit hungry still, so i made a second sandwich of two slices of bread and one cherry tomato and 2 slices of ham..
downed it with 2 pints of milk. (with 1.5% fat.. thats my brand.. "the blue milk" as the cartons normally have medium blue color as indication of what percetange it is.. light blue 1% red 3.5% pale blue 0%.. fullmilk as in red i only use in baking or foods ..dont drink it. it leaves a bit too much greasy sensation to the mouth. 1% ie light milk i could start using as drinking milk with ease but havent for some odd reason.. but the 0% milk.. it tastes funny its like milk diluted with water.)
That's quite a sandwich! Sounds good. I agree, the 0% milk is called 'skim' milk here and it sucks. I prefer 2% or at least 1%. I don't drink skim. :sick2:
Here's something I made last night: beef franks, bacon, American cheese, diced onions, barbecue sauce. Not bad actually.
You are right, this thread is headed into oblivion. I had some so called take and bake bread earlier which is frozen bread that you just bake for around 20 mins. Awesome stuff. Put butter on it and some feta cheese. Gonna have me another one in a while.
A few years ago when I first planted my cherry tomatoes, I used to do the same bread with butter, cream cheese and cherry tomatoes but my tomatoes were so small, I could fit around 30 of them on one baguette. I used to slice them in half so they wouldn't roll off the sandwich.
It was awesome stuff. I figured that I got around 1500 tomatoes that year. Very small, smaller than grapes but extremely tasty.
Pain in the a$$ to make being that small and having to cut each one of them but definitely worth the trouble. When they start growing
this year, I plan to do the same.
I'll see if I can upload some pics of them. They grow almost like grapes, a whole bunch of them together and they are the sweetest tomatoes
I've ever eaten.
By the way nonsence, sandwich sounds great and Nick, dogs look great. I had some snausages the other day with sauer kraut that I brought
in myself. Awesome $hit :)
yeah.. i waited patiently for few days until this thread would be the last post on this page before resquing it.
i am a bit late on my own tomatoes in greenhouse.. i should of planted them earlier.. now its touch and go if they will grow big enough to give a good harvest before summer is over. they might. but i was atleast month too late. i kept talking about it and just didnt get the greenhouse built so i didnt bother planting them to pots in time. the seeds for the tomatoes are from the ones i bought from store and got mushy before i got around to eat them. there are six or seven growing now.. hope they all stay alive and give me some cool small red tomatoes. (yeah they wont be big as the summer is short and cold and even tho sun is up long time a day it just dont have many strong rays)
only regular tomatoes, no cherry ones this time.. maybe next year :) (i just cant imagine how small THEY would be if the regular tomatoes i grow normally end up looking like supersized cherry tomatoes. hahah)
Dude, mine produce till September and at the end of the year, they are almost too damn sweet to eat, no joke.
My lunch a couple weeks ago...
Looks great. Bread looks yummy
I went to a place and had all you can eat ribs today. Had about 4 racks of baby back ribs. Good stuff and the waitress was cute as a button and awesome
That looks super! Plus avocados, I love avocados. They're great even just with a bit of salt and lemon juice, and as guacamole they can't be beat. :drool:Quote:

Dude, I love avocados too. When I was in Spain, I used to make a sandwich that had avocados as spread. Some kind of whole bread, avocados instead of butter and leek (fine cut) and also some red bell peppers (fine cut).
Washed it down with some herb tea, it was awesome.
The thing is, over there, they have these green avocados that are awesome. They've got'em here too but they have no flavor and the black ones are very dry., Great on taste but very dry.
The green ones there were very juicy and great tasting and awesome for what I did with them.
Damn, I love good food.
You people keep talking about baby back ribs makes me want to stop my diet. GF is going to kill me.
Last time I had a full rack of ribs was at the 11th street diner on Miami beach, Oh boy... so tender, so juicy, so much meat...
I love avocados, I've used them as spread too but I prefer a good salad or the whole avocado on a rice plate with some meat or chicken.
Diet? Oh hell! You're definitely in the wrong thread bro :)
Hey, where in Central America are you?
Avocados are frikkin' awesome :)
I wish I could get the good, green ones here.
On another note, my cucumbers seem to be growing well and if the amount of blooms are an indication, I should get a shitload :)
never really liked avocados.. maybe i always got the bad kind but it has never impressed me much.
wikipedia: diet is the sum of food consumed by a person or other organism.
so diet can be what ever. :) im on diet that contains unhealthy amounts of chokolate, cocacola, good food and stuff. :)
-about sandwiches.. my sister was visiting here and made a neat italian style ciabatta bread, with fine chopped olive chunks in the batter, done with olive oil and with bacon bits.. filled with creme fraiche so it was gooey fluff inside.. not sure how she did it and not sure if those were the only ingredients, but they were the ones i recognized. anyways it was nice.
so i countered it next day with french baguette sliced in half, buttered, filled with fried chiken, pineapple ring, fried egg and then adding cheese and then put in the oven so it melted. i liked it too.
today: i had a general cheap supermarket sandwich bun with butter and baloney.
-oh damn how far i fall on "normal" days from the good stuff.. hahhaha.
Damn nonsence, I just ate and now you made me hungry again...
no cool sandwiches lately.. only home smoked salmon and new potatoes and butter. (tomorrow maybe if there is fish left i will have it on top of the bread too like always..)
now some banana strawberry icecream topped with chokolate chips shaved from marabou bar with my spyderco delica.. hahah
Dude, I just had an amazing sandwich the other day.
Fresh baked baguette, butter, cream cheese (with chives and something else) and my homegrown cherry tomatoes on top. Farkin amazing brother. The tomatoes do the trick.
Texas Toast.. the best thing to come out of Texas since Stevie Ray Vaughan.
thickness of the slices look adequate.. the fillings look slightly too thin in comparison.. but whats in it?
Yummmmmmmy.... I love mango chutney.... It tasted so good, I really like their stuff.
I've been gone for a few months, looks like you folks are behaving yourselves? :wave: Who put the flouride in your water, lol. ;)
yes, we are well behaving bunch when steadily fed. :) or we have learned to selfmoderate or was it to hide the evidence better.. i have no recollection of any behaviour good/goof or bad, any further questions you should refer them to my attorney.
ps. very irresposible for you to leave us on our own.. who knows what we might of eaten without any supervision.
couldnt resist buying oven fresh bread from a supermarket which has their own oven.. and i saw them pulling them loafs out of it.. the smell draw me closer (from the meat section) and the cute girl offering a tasting pieces that had butter on them, well she had me hooked before "hello". :) gonna go there tomorrow too to get a paper wrapped new bread fresh out of the oven..
at home i cut half of the loaf for snack.. sliced that in half and filled it with what ever i had available: tomatoes, cucumber, baloney, bratwurst sausage left over form day before bbq, boiled egg. then i realised i ate the top part of the loaf with butter alone.. it was that good (i got hungry while chopping the "fillings") hahah. anyways.. very nice half a foot long sandwich.
