I just remembered what I forgot to do today-

Go food shopping. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I am currently attempting a culinary trick that I had thought part of my past-
trying to make Spaghetti-O's taste good. I recalled that a good tomato sauce helped. I used Classico's Mushroom and Olive. Also, plenty of black pepper, and a little garlic salt. I used too much Tobasco, I think. But it's a work-in-progress.

Uh oh, I actually LIKE Spaghetti-Os just the way they are.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I like to eat all of the Os first and I save the meatballs or sliced franks for last.

Now, if they only made Chef Boyardee "Meatballs and Sliced Franks in tomato cheese sauce", I'd dump them in my Beefaroni and have a regular smorgasbord.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I pity you all. My beloved mother taught me how to make a number of fine dishes, not least of which are the best oatmeal cookies in San Diego County.

Whatcha need there, Chuck, is sweet Italian sausage and diced garlic to add to your Chef-Boy-ar-Dee canned delicacies. As an American Male, it is your Birthright to be able to fry or grill almost any meat product (or byproduct) into submission, some of which may be edible.

I eat Spaghetti-Os because I LIKE them, not because it's the only thing in the house, lol.

Poor Chuck was out of food and was too busy playing FB to go to the grocery store. Like that's never happened to one of us?http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif It doesn't mean he doesn't usually eat better.

My mom owned a restaurant and taught me how to cook very well, but sometimes the simple things in life are the most tasty. My wife has also put about 30lbs on me over the last 22 years of cooking for me.

She's Italian/Hungarian, so pasta dishes are the specialty. Now, if I could just curb her feisty temper.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Got a broiler in your kitchen ? The cross-rib roast is restaurant quality, very flavorful and very lean - it's pretty much the same cut they use for roast beef sandwiches. In San Francisco I get that cut for just under $3/lb. I carve the roast into steaks and broil them - each slice is the best $3 steak humanly possible. It's a juicy cut, so it sizzles perfectly under (or over) flame. There's just enough fat crisping at the edges to make your mouth water, but the bulk of the cut is uniformly pink - it's almost 100% lean.

For best results, marinate the cuts for a couple of days. I use Soy Veh Teriyaki (ginger, garlic & sesame seeds) - after 3 days the meat has candied - it's uncanny. And it's even better on chicken dark meat. Both Safeway and Albertsons stock it on the US West Coast.

Serve with your favorite whiskey. I don't care what your favorite is, a glass of good whiskey is in the recipe ! Any grain alcohol should substitute, vodka should only be served with a *very* rare portion - think wolf, then sear it a little. Red wine is also good.

Preparation is easy: carve, marinate, broil. You cna chop up a salad and prepare sides while it's in the broiler. An equal weight of lean meat and salad (vinegar and olive oil dressing, spend $4 on a cruet and make your own) is a very healthy, inexpensive meal. It costs maybe $6-7 with your sides, a suitable beverage must be allowed for. Fresh fruit is recommended for desert; for reasons I shouldn't have to mention.

Caribou is also great: not fatty at all, which surprised me.

Slickstick - I know what you mean about wives and food: I had a friend who put on about 20 lbs in his first 2 months of marriage: she was desparate to cook enough for him, and he was desparate to prove how much he liked her cooking by eating it all (remember those early days???). So every day she'd put more on the table, worried that he wasn't getting enough food for his liking, and he'd cram the lot down, not wanting to offend his new bride...Lol. I think he broke first, when he couldn't keep up on runs any more...

02-27-2004, 03:48 AM
LOL! Yeah, I used to eat everything she put on the table. Then, I finally had to start taking smaller portions. I was getting heavy though. I've always been about 210lbs at 6'2", but she got me as high as 239lbs within the first two years.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I forgot all about this thread!

Yes, I usually do eat better. I am a good cook, but when you have canned noodles in ketchup called Spaghetti-O's (sorry slickstick, they are gross http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ), confectionary sugar, Tobasco, Cilantro, Olive Oil, pepper, and flour in your pantry, your options are extremely limited. Thank God I found that jar of sauce...it was borderline too old to eat, but I risked the stomachache http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I just don't take time to cook anymore and sometimes I forget that even if I WANT to cook I need FOOD first, lol. Used to be different, I'd take an hour just to make a cream sauce, but since my old room-mate went off and got herself married, I don't bother with that much. Plus, I like to listen to Frank Sinatra and drink when I cook and I actually have set the microwave on fire, blasted out of my mind while preparing a meal. Well, the thing IN the microwave was on fire...and it wasn't even food. Maybe I shouldn't admit that http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Now this thread has made me realise I'm hungry again...guess what I still haven't done? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Paladin, I'm just a mile or so east of the 5 off the Coronado Ave exit, but this was my weekend with my kids, and they've demolished my most recent batch. I was kicking around the idea of whipping up some double chocolate (white & toll house) chip cookies, tho. PM me. Maybe we can come to an arrangement...

Now, Tooz, deep fat fryers are dangerous(you could drop your beer in the damned thing), and grilling is a Male Bonding Ritual out here, often included in the American Football tradition of Tailgating, which cannot be properly pursued down here in San Diego because it never gets cold enough. Our friends from the traditional Tailgating Communities, like Green Bay, Chicago, Cleveland and Buffalo, where Real Men Play and Grill Outdoors In the Elements(Next to a Great Lake), Where God Intended, will, no doubt, regale you with tales of delicacies like Buffalo Wings, Kilbasa, and various other varieties of sausage that their Central European forebears brought to this new world at great risk and daring.

But as a frying guy, I can offer you two ideas: Chimichangas with guacamole, and fish tacos. Both involve frying, and unlike the foods I experienced in your neighbor to the south, both have rich, distinctive, and pleasurable flavors. Oh, and both go very well with beer, which I gather is an important consideration. If you should ever make it to my sunny vicinity, I will happily introduce you to these delicacies, and throw in some sun screen.

Cheers

Well, Spagetti-O's seem to benefit from being slow simmered for about an hour or two. I believe, it very slightly scorches it, which gives it a rather interesting flavor. You just have to remember to stir it fairly often, less you burn it. Burned Spagetti-O's are bad.

Living in the Great Lakes region of the USA, where grilling in subzero temperatures while intoxicated has been transformed into an art form, may I just say that I too enjoy the fine art of deep fat frying. Unfortunately a little too much. During a portion of my military career, I spent a little time in Scotland, where I spent many a happy moment retrieving delicacies from your infamous Fish Bars. A place where everything under the sun is fried.
