A thread for dishes that went far better than expected.

The other day, after realizing how great rice and beef mix in stuffed bell-peppers, I cooked rice, then stirred in beaten eggs, and began stirring rapidly until the egg was cooked. Pic related.

I've been making beer bread pretty regularly for the past few months. It's almost insultingly simple. Either three cups of self-rising flour or three cups of all-purpose flour, four teaspoons of baking powder, and half a teaspoon of salt. A twelve-ounce bottle of beer. A little more liquid if you think it's too thick- the first few times I used an entire pub can of Guinness, which is closer to 16 ounces, and it worked fine. Plus whatever else you feel like adding. Pour it into a greased loaf pan. Pop it in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes, and you're good.The first recipe I followed called for Guinness, molasses, and sugar. My most recent one was made with a local microbrewed vanilla java porter and some fresh vanilla coffee. It's fucking great, especially when toasted with some butter and honey on it.

Farmer's markets make eating super affordable for me in the summer, so I'm getting my fill of squash, zucchini, etc. I realized I hadn't had any sort of spaghetti-type meal for awhile, so I made some, since it's cooled down here a bit and turning on my stove doesn't feel like I'm baking myself in the process. It's not completely from scratch, but it is completely delicious. Recipe below:

1 jar Ragu Sauteed Onion & Garlic
1 jar Ragu Mushroom & Green Pepper
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large zucchini, sliced (slices approx 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide)
2 medium yellow squash, sliced
2 medium yellow pattypan squash, cut into 1/8ths (or smaller, depending on your taste)
1 small to medium red onion, diced
approx 1/4 C of wine (I used Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon)
Italian Seasoning (Oregano, Marjoram, Thyme, Rosemary & Sage)
salt & pepper to taste
splash of extra virgin olive oil

Tomato-Basil pasta (so delicious on its own)

Let's start low then go high.

I like Guinness. I just wasn't in the mood for a something so dark and I wanted some fucking chocolate.

Also Guinness should never be served from a can unless you're making a mix anyway.

I have black raspberry mead in my fridge right now (pic related). It is a magnificence that cannot be denied.

CSS Time: Never been a wine drinker, because I either like the hard stuff or beer (I live in a city with a lot of microbreweries). Got a job (well, unpaid internship, but fuck, it's something to do) helping to promote arts and culture. Suddenly at a lot of functions where there's wine, and a crap selection of beer. Decide to educate myself and start drinking a bit of wine here and there to figure out what I like so I don't look like a total n00b when I go to the bar and order something. So far, I've tried Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Rose & Merlot (and had to buy a corkscrew, which made several of my friends look at me in disbelief when I told them that I never owned one previously). So far, it's all been good. I've stuck to Australian wines as well, and staying on the cheap side ($7/bottle), and I've gotta say, there are some tasty things out there.

So, I drank some spiritus rektifikwany or however it's spelled at a party.

Like. At least half a bottle of it.

It's 192 proof. So, essentially poison.

But it is SURPRISINGLY good when mixed with Code Red.

I took a straight double shot of it on a dare and threw up for at least 3 hours, though. So uh. Don't drink it straight.

I was making a delicious jambalaya a few months back and the recipe called for oysters. I had never used oysters in any sort of recipe before and the recipe I had didn't call for any specific type so I just grabbed a jar of frozen ones that I'd de-thaw

Holy shit they were so horrible and HUGE and slimy and tough and fhjsd
The made the entire dish just taste of fish and ocean

I dunno if this is a totally necessary thread but I find that I keep going to the SYM thread in /baw/ to talk about petty food things that don't deserve a thread.

So I'm making this instead.

I have way too much fun seeing just how delicious of a pizza I can make using those pre-packaged pre-cooked crusts.
The answer is an incredibly delicious pizza.

Pic unrelated, but it was the first thing I saw when I opened my pictures folder.

So I started calorie counting (I need to lose weight and don't have enough time to exercise and it's cold out) and it's going well so far. I found an app that keeps track of the foods you've eaten and lets you set a daily calorie quota based on your desired rate of weight loss.

But one issue is that it relies on a database of foods for calorie counts (you can scan barcodes even), but not everything is prepackaged or has set composition. What would be a good rule of thumb for estimating calorie content? I was thinking of finding a similar listed food and rounding up to the nearest 50 or 100 calories. Do you think that would be effective or misleading?

Also holy shit. I THOUGHT I knew how much I was eating, but I was severely underestimating the amount of calories I was eating. The biggest wakeup call was when I set the app to 2 pounds per week and breakfast was almost half my daily quota (and I only had cereal and OJ). I knocked that up to 1 pound per week and it turned out to be about 1600 calories, which is manageable. It actually turns out to be a comfortable amount of food - I didn't really realize how much I was overeating and making myself uncomfortably full.

The worst was looking at a smallish chicken burrito and looking it up and realizing it was almost half my day's calories in one little thing that would take me about five minutes to eat.

Goddamnit, food.

Quite a bit actually. You're getting significantly more dietary fiber per serving over rice, and the higher quantity of indigestible material (ie, the husk portion) means it has a lower glycemic index and will cause a lower spike of your blood sugar than white rice.

Also I do believe there are a bit more trace minerals due to the presence of the husk there, but I'd have to double check to be sure.

Mostly it's a case of higher fiber and a lower blood sugar spike, those are the two big biggies.

Thanks anon, everyone tells me brown rice is healthier without saying why. Now I just need to find some bags of brown rice cheaper than white rice.

This one's not a candy, nor is it a toy. It's actually a little powdered kit for microwavable burgers, buns, and fries, as well as instant cola and cheese. No artificial colors, no preservatives, actual chicken and pork ingredients.

So a few of us were wondering.

What does human flesh taste like?

Feel free to specify what "flesh" you're talking about.

If given the opportunity, would you take it? Would you cook it? How?

Personally, given the rarity of it, I think I'd have to eat it raw. It seems in poor tastes to taint something so uncommonly ingested by cooking or flavoring it.

Dog food is made up of meat that was deemed "not fit for human consumption" so I'm guessing it's not.
>> No. 5665
Well, most of the "meal" in meat meals found in kibble is actually the ground up carcass of the animal after all the good cuts have been removed and sent off to other places.

So you'd essentially be eating rendered bones and fat. Kinda gross.
