Food & Drink thread

I need to gripe a little. Shocker I know. But what the Fuck already with the food?

A dish on it's own isn't good enough. Add more meat or combine it with something else. Why. Fucking why?

My wife goes shopping on Friday. It's right after work. It's fucking hot. So she gets meat and veggies and all. But wants something quick for when she gets home.

Freezer case and I already know it's probably decent at best.


They keep getting this thing called chicken carbonara. With peas which may or may not be legit.

I'm not Italian and never been to Italy. Hopefully some day. But I've seen many videos. Bacon or guancale. Pasta and a raw egg. Parmesan cheese sometimes mixed with egg yolks. A little pasta water .

Beautiful. Simple. But we have to fuck it all up. Why? Why?

So Bartoli can sell more "food" ? Too many choices already. Sheesh.

Sorry. It's not just Italian food. Mexican food. I mean I'm surprised that somewhere there isn't chicken menudo.

Our food here is already messed up. Why we got to mess up other cuisines too?

JMHO
I get what you are saying, some of the best food is Simon simple and relies on great ingredients and that's all you need.
A rib eye steak, hot coals, salt pepper. Primal, probably in our DNA and can't be improved on.
 
Another good example.

See a lot if steak and prime rib videos. Really red. Really rare. I like rare and I'm not a huge prime rib guy (wife is) but ok.

But all these fucking experts griping in the comments. Still going moo. Call the Vet.

Everyone's an expert. But whenever I drive past a drive through it's lined up into the street.
 
Cooking a pork steak in the oven tonight with Buffalo Wild Wings BBQ sauce.

It is a good night.
 
LOL! It's a southern classic Bones. Probably goes back a few hundred years, served with corn bread.

Some southern boys should be showing anytime now to defend me.
Wait for it...
 
Next night smoked a tri tip came out perfect
 
Made burnt ends with pork belly. Took longer to smoke than I planned but my son and I we’re watching tv around 10 stuffing our faces saying “these came out great”
Good stuff, melt in your mouth.
 
Sopa de fideo tonight.
What my family nicknamed Snake Soup about 50 years back. Wife grew up with it and her mom called it that all the time. It wasn't until my wife was in her 20s that she learned the real name for it.

My daughter was taught by Nana on how to do it properly and carries on the tradition now.
 
One of my neighbors has some ground and loin venison in his freezer. He needed to replace his freezer so I offered to smoke the venison. I made shotgun shells with the ground venison and smoked the loin after brining it and marinating it with teriyaki.

Had him and his family over to enjoy it. Holy crap it came it great

It's weird how things get passed down and twisted around. My family on my moms side make a breakfast dish with eggs, tomatoes and zucchini they called Chuge. It wasn't until a few years ago that I discovered that it was an Italian version of a dish known as Shakshuka.
 
I'm starting to get a few cherry tomatoes but the others are not ready. I'm not much of a farmer truth be told.

Making fried cabbage for supper.

My son has been making a version of Shakshuka lately, but he got his recipe from one of the videogame cookbooks we bought for him. No zucchini and I think it has ground beef or pork in it.
 
Chic-fil-a (the Bones Review)... I was wondering what the big deal was so finally I gave it a try. Thought I'd go in and get waited on. No. Order, sit down and they bring the thing to you. I looked at pictures of their sandwich on line and thought "meh"... looks terrible. Looks dry. A bun and a piece of chicken inside...no lettuce, mayo, sauce or anything else. You have to put every thing on your self if you even know what to ask for. They have like 30 different sauces.

Anyway... no mas. No bueno...look at this shit ---
