movie theatre chili dog

Posted by ernie on March 17, 2008

no, movie theatres don’t serve chili dogs (but maybe i can use my powerful influence to bring about this kind of change). but that certainly wasn’t going to stop me from gettin’ me a chili dog.

i mean really, when you get hit with some serious hunger, sometimes a chili dog is like a torpedo of satisfaction that is shot directly into your gluttonous belly.

you do realize you have a beard, don’t you?

well that’s how it is for me, anyway.

pascetti squash

Posted by ernie on March 17, 2008

we happened upon a big ol’ squash and needed to do something with it.  so this is what we did:

this was the perfect dish…and recipe.  it’s super easy, quick, and absolutely friggin’ delicious.  the squash comes out nicely pasta-esque with just enough of a crunch to keep you interested.  the flavors of all the vegetables mix together perfectly and although the dish would have been great without it, the crumbled feta is just the punch it needs to send it over the top.

egg-tasm #2

Posted by ernie on March 6, 2008

on tonight’s menu: more eggs.

3508d.jpg

eggs! form of, quiche!

inspired by food television, i decided to tackle my first quiche. i’ve had delicious quiche before, but never made it myself. in general, my “first time” endeavors into fooding are riddled with regret, remorse, and night terrors. in short: hunger wins.

tonight would be different. tonight i would tackle my foe with unfettered valor. i would not hold back and i would not back down. tonight i would hack and slash and bake until the agents of my pantry were sufficiently subdued.

tonight would be a long hard battle against the forces of egg and hunger.

fresh basil pizza and tomato bisque

Posted by ernie on March 3, 2008

today i had off, which means i had plenty of time to consider what to eat. and then plenty of time to prepare whatever i would decide to eat. to top it off, sarah was home sick so we could consider these things together.

in the end, we decided upon pizza and tomato soup. the pizza would be somewhat homemade – a store bought pizza dough – and the tomato soup would be entirely homemade.

and here’s a picture to keep you interested.

this is pizza.

dinner of champions: tuna steak with pasta

Posted by ernie on February 25, 2008

i don’t really know how to kick this one off, so i’ll get right to it.

22508d.jpg

i don’t think it’s possible for you to tell me that doesn’t look friggin’ delicious. that’s some tuna steaks with tasty tasty pasta.

i can’t quite believe how simple this dinner turned out to be. tuna steaks are somewhat heavy, so this meal was delightfully filling. and the pasta…well pasta is always good. i like the frying pan pasta. i’ve done it once or twice before, but never with the amount of success i achieved this day.

monday morning leftovers

Posted by ernie on February 25, 2008

22508a.jpg

today i slept till noon. so breakfast was worthless, especially since i’ve had eggs for the best few days and am in no mood for more. so what’s a hungry guy to do?

break out the leftovers, that’s what. mostly because there were no good breakfast foods around and i wasn’t really up for a breakfast brainstorming session. waking up this late actually makes it easier because it’s easy to validate skipping breakfast and starting with lunch.

and my personal favorite vehicle for leftovers? fajita of course.

lazy sunday…actual dinner and a movie

Posted by ernie on February 25, 2008

unnecessary caption to describe obvious food product.

sunday was not the greatest day for food blogging. but i guess i’ll do a quick run-through of what went down.

the morning started with hash browns and a banana strawberry smoothie again. mmm…tasty.

we had lunch at sarah’s parent’s place. meatloaf all around. i put mine on some rye bread. mmm…tasty.

then we watched Charlie Bartlett. enjoyable, though not quite as good as i had anticipated. i didn’t think i liked robert downey jr, but i think this may have changed my mind.

after the film, we stopped at panera bread for some soup. good news and bad news there. their broccoli cheddar and tomato soups are always delicious, but they were approaching closing time. so there was no good bread left. the soup was not piping hot like it usually is, though i can’t complain about that. and finally, the asiago bread bits they gave us for the tomato soup were noticeably stale. but the deliciousness of the soup was enough for me. i don’t know if that’s enough to be considered “dinner and a movie” but either way: mmm…tasty.

saturday morning: hash browns

Posted by ernie on February 24, 2008

22308d.jpg

so there we were. a lazy saturday morning, putting off getting up for as long as we possible could. and that’s when she said it. those 4 fateful words.

“wanna make hash browns?”

“oh hellz yeah,” i thought. “i’m all up ons.”

of course what i actually said was “great idea honey, and some scrambled eggs to boot.” but when i write the movie of my life, it’ll come out that first way.
