Re: Food thread

Starting to cook, it's always just following the recipe i.e. the instructions. As one cooks more, improvising is much easier.

Not saying I'm anywhere close to being good at it, most of my cooking is basic student dishes such as spaghetti bolognese, meatballs, chicken breast with veggies etc. But at least I prepare it myself, many other people just buy it. It's much easier to control your calorie intake (and protein/carb/fat) when you cook yourself.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Food thread

Much appreciated General Shanks . I feel the same way, and I hope one day I can share the same experience in the future....that is, if I rack up enough green to hit the airplanes and start traveling around the world...and eat .

Indian Food is delicious but I think it's really rich for me, so I have it rarely...maybe once every 3 months. I had Malaysian/Indian (sort of) yesterday for dinner (as in my previous post), but I don't think it's as heavily concentrated as straight Indian tucker. Still....can't go past a curry of any sort. But I would like to explore further on Indian sometime in the future for sure.

@Lopez : Pretty much the same as me. I'm not as good as those freaks that are on international TV, but I also do love to follow recipes and also do some experimentation and improvisation of my own - that's if I have time (which I currently do not right now). With experimentation, for one example, I can be intrigued for hours on end trying to create really good tasting sauces for dressings or for marinades.
And you're spot on. Making stuff yourself means you have more control on your own levels of intake...which is one of the things I love most about it. You are in control.

Re: Food thread

I got these great necks from my butcher and I can't wait to cook them!

(I'm pretty demanding with my meat, quality or GTFO )

My grandma taught me well, same with fish, I remember us going really early to Bilbao's Port to choose the best one

Re: Food thread

Necks (of pretty much any animal) are where the flavour is. Chuck them in a soup or stock. Makes a huge difference.

Re: Food thread

looks good. so you cook and you can bake.

is there anything you can't do?

about all i can do in the cooking department is fix fresh fish.

wait. i can boil eggs. however that was a disaster too last time. i held 2 eggs in my hand and boiled my watch for 2 minutes.
