Food!

I think we all can get behind the proposition that food is pretty allright. Having it is a bonus, not having it is a death sentence. Quality of food, however, is an entirely different subject. Especially if it has to be done on a clock – that’s why I despise Master Chef and the ilk, time crunch makes the food taste worse.

I thought this community, if you can call a “community” a bunch of non-progressive degenerates, that I firmly belong to, might appreciate a topic away from whatever shit is happening in the world today, and talk about what they eat. Call it, “I support the current feed” movement.

Last weekend, I did a batch of Boston clam chowder, albeit with certain substitutions. No clams, so NZ mussels. So, maybe, Wellington clam chowder. Hearty and filling, and just right for the crap winter weather here in WA. Shared it with my co-workers whom have never been in US, nor heard of clams, and it was a hit.

Disclaimer: not my version.

This week, to support our struggling brothers and sisters in Ukraine, I am making borscht, specifically, a Russian version of it – no potatoes. After reading lots of recipes and internet shit-fights over who owned what tradition, I thought potatoes were not going to go well with the rest, so call me a Putin-lover. Again, stock image, not my version.

For next week, I have scheduled an absolute delicacy of all things BBQ – Brunswick stew! I pity ye if ye haven’t had this delicious remains of every BBQ in Georgia, USA! Flavours, texture, smell, and a hint of the hot sauce! I highly recommend.

All three of the above are fairly easy to make, just give yourself time and don’t rush. Good food is like making love, and you’ll get the leftovers that are still tasty.

I’ll tell a well hidden online secret of mine… I cook daily, no less than 1 meal that is eaten with a spoon. It is mostly my wog Mediterranean type but I cook international quite iften. Therein lies the secret: I only cook traditional, traditional as in “prepared in the same way for longer than the US’ western history” so no Jamie crying Oliver and Gordon bitchin Ramsay swills ending with “and add two spoons of sugar” et cie.
For health diet I always suggest everyone to have no less than one meal a day that requires a spoon to be eaten. Does not matter what it is, spoon should be the way to eat it.

perhaps 2moro I’ll drop a favourite recipe. Since I begun self employment I work weekends therefore ‘time permitting’ applies

I have a recipe for people on a tight budget like myself.
You will need –
A slow cooker.
Two minute noodles.
Method –
Put two minute noodles into slow cooker.
Slow cook for four minutes.
Take out of slow cooker.
Enjoy!

I’ve been doing a Thai pork larb. Super simple, and beautiful and fresh. Exactly the same as shop-bought larb.

Adaptations after having made it many times…..

I added 2 limes, and 2 Tbsp fish sauce, and some shredded lettuce.

Toasted rice is really easy. Put half a cup uncooked rice in a dry pan, mix around until it turns brown. Roughly Mortar and pestle, i.e. not a fine powder, but a conglomerate (freeze excess to use next time, so it’s even simpler).

The only thing you cook is the pork mince. The rest just gets mixed in.

SUPER SIMPLE.

Eat it with rice.

Enjoy the food while you can, there are going to be shortages

I’ve always loved cooking. My preference is slow cooked casseroles like coq au vin, boeuf en daube, Asian rendang and massaman curries etc.

I’ll look up recipes for Herr Gruppenfuhrer’s suggestions and have a go at them.

Cheers mate! I just made Brunswick Stew, and received rapturous applause from the assembled family, with advice that I can make it anytime, so thanks for that good advice. 👍😊

I’ll have a crack at the veal on the weekend.

Living in Sydney one thing that surprises me, although it probably shouldn’t, is how little most people cook. I know numerous families that think it is completely normal to get takeaways for dinner most nights. I prefer a nice home cooked meal anytime as it is generally healthier, contains higher quality ingredients and is still a lot cheaper.

Yeah but if you’re sitting on a golden egg which on average returns 50-100k’s of AUD per year tax free or about $6-$12 per hour of ‘hard earned’ money….what’s a head of 12 bucks lettuce at the top of your shopping bags or a order-in chef cooked dinner. A mere blip on that cash making radar.
Remember, astute investing and home cooked meals are two mutually exclusive propositions

What is even more confounding is that a lot of those takeaway addicts have built, or bought, homes with huge, modern, fully European appliance equipped, entertainer kitchens.

The drug culture is one of the worst aspects of this country.

Big mentally ill babies that need their drugs because they feel all sad awwww.

I believe the context is he tracked down the doctor that gave the jab to a family member whom it killed. Coud be on drugs too, dunno.

Aussie Soy Boy

Of course he’s on drugs

Sucked in if his family member died from the jab

What that feed is makes quite a difference to how much you care about that ratio though. Animals that can turn the thorny spindly stuff central australia calls plants into meat is getting infinite feed conversion ratio in terms of what is edible by humans.
