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.

where have i been?

Posted by ernie on March 3, 2008

so it’s been a couple of days since i’ve posted any foodstuffs.  this marks the second time i’ve gone without posting for more than a day.  mostly it’s because i’m lazy and just didn’t get around to it.  but also, i’ve been eating a lot of nothing lately.  certainly not anything interesting.  a lot of canned soups, store bought sammiches, and of course copious amounts of leftovers.

this leads me to amend the workings of this blog.  i will no longer attempt to post every little thing that i eat.  that is tedious, tiring, a time waster, and probably the least interesting thing you’ll find on the interweb.  instead, i’ll restrict it to major meals that aren’t comprised of leftovers (unless they are some kind of reworking of the original dish), delicious restaurant or store bought eats, or just plain interesting recipes.

i’m sorry if that disappoints any one – which i’m sure it doesn’t – but it has to be this way.

potater fries

Posted by ernie on March 1, 2008

well it’s been a couple of days so i guess it’s time to update. a lot has happened between myself and food, though most of it was not interesting. tuesday i was working all day, so it was tomato soup to hold me over. then it was a wawa sandwich on the way home. wednesday was kind of interesting. i used one of the remaining tuna steaks to make a sammwich…almost like a tuna steak burger.

here, look:

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.

from smoothies to fried chicken

Posted by ernie on February 23, 2008

it’s all in a days work.

22208d.jpg

this is how the night ended. fried chicken and mashed potatoes. but we won’t be starting there. you’ll have to make it through the rest of the day before you get to fried chicken and mashed potatoes.

dinner and a movie

Posted by ernie on February 21, 2008

22108c.jpg

instead of working my usual 12 hour shift, i ended up with a simple 6. that means i didn’t have to leave until about 4pm, giving me time for a late lunch. more of that chili, if you’re wondering. that was the last of it, so you won’t be hearing of it again.

eggs for breakfast

Posted by ernie on February 21, 2008

22108a.jpg

i started the day by sleeping till noon. that’s a good start. when you’re in bed that long the only things that really get you up are hunger, the progressively increasing necessity to scratch various parts of your body, and the overwhelming stink of your own mouth. the problem then becomes how to remedy all of these things and in what order.
