chicken and rice – revisited

Posted by ernie on April 19, 2008

revisted?  well it’s the second time i’ve made it.  the first time was tradition chicken and rice.  “arroz con pollo” if you will.  i will.  in fact i did.  but it did not.  the end result was considerably less than spectacular.  across the board it was bland.  the rice was bland.  but it looked delicious.  here, take a look.

look but don\'t taste.

so that’s all there is to say about “my first time.”

moving on.

burgers and fries

for dinner tonight is burgers and fries.

it should have been beer can chicken, but i forgot to take the broiler chickens out of the freezer. let’s not talk about that. for dinner tonight is burgers and fries, and you’ll just have to deal with that.

fettuccine and potato leek soup

Posted by ernie on March 31, 2008

32808c.jpg

so i’ve been wanting to make a nice tasty soup for a while. maybe a soup i haven’t made or eaten a lot of instead of the broccoli cheddar and tomato i usually do (i won’t even link those). not that those soups aren’t delicious and favorites of mine, but i want to expand my menu rather than be doomed to repeat it. so i looked around the kitchen and the internet and settled on a potato soup. maybe a potato and leek soup. i’ve never worked with leeks before, so what the hell? there’s a first time for everything.

except some things. but i don’t want to talk about those things. because they never happen.

as for the fettuccine, it’s a delicious pasta. what else is there to discuss?

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.

sarah’s side: avocado salad

Posted by ernie on March 17, 2008

is it guacamole? is it some kind of salad? well it’s kind of both. it was inspired by an avocado salad we had at a relative’s house. we (well, sarah) put our (well, her) own twist on it.

the downfall is that it browns quickly so it’s best to eat super duper fresh. inevitably, some ends up in the fridge. it keeps for a day or so; just be sure to give it a good stir before you eat. and don’t be turned off by the little bit of browning. the stir will bring back that bright green color.

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.

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.
