Now you're all taking the idea of what I mentioned far more seriously than I even intended. I guess the words I typed must have taken it there.... Wink

...weird.

ANYWAY. I am starting to get into making slow, unsatisfying meals for eight or ten. Like, marinating some chicken for two weeks, then cooking it, then feeding it to more people than it was originally intended to be fed to! It's not a great way to eat, but the agony of my guests helps to fuel the great fire of anger in my SOUL.

So I have just last night come up with the best improvisatory meal for one based on food I happened to have in the fridge EVER. Motivated by a lack of bread.

Find some sausage in the fridge. It has to be proper sausage of some sort. We happened to have some tasty Cajun sausage that was tasty. And also delicious.

Cut it up so that the skin no longer contains the sausagey goodness. Throw it into a pan. Cook at medium heat for a li'l while.

Meanwhile, take out as many eggs as you feel like eating. For a manly man who hasn't eaten enough today like me, try four! Scramble them.

Throw in some cheese if you're into that sort of thing.

If you're not, never talk to me again.

When you feel like the sausage is kinda probably not raw any more, throw in the eggs. Continue to cook them scrambled-eggs style with the sausage. Then EAT them. While watching The Sopranos.

Who knew you could come so close to making a frittata and still be so manly?

Ridiculous names aside, frittatas are actually incredibly easy to make if you have an oven proof pan and are pretty hard to mess up. The first time I ever made one, it turned out exactly the way I thought it should and only got better since then. I'm uh, still waking up so I won't go digging for recipes now....later perhaps.

i could go for some eggs right now. Hey you know what else is good while we're on the subject? Next time you're frying eggs, throw some sambal into the yolk as it's setting. if you don't have that, get The Rooster.

Don't pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about.


You know you've seen it at the store. How you walked by it without purchasing it remains a mystery. It's good with Ramen too. A little goes a long way.

So I thought I might have that sauce, but I was wrong. I actually have a different kind, a sweet chili sauce. My half-sisters are both Thai, and the oldest one sends my dad different sauces from Hawai’i because they just don’t sell these things in WV. I went downstairs to see if that was the same brand as above and noticed something that made me giggle. This will surely make me seem juvenile, but...





The name of the company is "THEP PADUNG PORN COCONUT CO., LTD". Smile

This sauce is great, but I haven’t eaten it in years because I’m off of sugar and refuse to break my diet for anything other than sushi and brownies. Anyway, I remember about 3 or 4 years ago, Nonglak sent my dad a box of this sauce and it was broken when the package arrived. He cried a single tear and later tried to strain the broken glass from the sauce so he could still use it. LOL. It killed him to have to throw it in the garbage.

BTW, did anyone notice the crazy photo ad about "dry chicken" at the bottom of this thread?

I got "tired of bachelor salad?" and "healthy lunch ideas" and "my girlfriend's kitchen."

Hmmm...

no problem. While we're on the subject of spicy stuff:

The first time I ever went to Mexican Radio, I scoffed at their claims of having some of the hottest sauces around. Given my parents' preference for complete loss of lingual sensation when it came to seasoning food, I was raised not only to tolerate but to enjoy really spicy foods.

That being said, avoid this at all costs:


I couldn't stop the tears from rolling down my face for the two or three minutes it took for the two packets of sugar I put on my tongue to take full effect.

It took twice as long for my voice to return to normal.

EDIT: The back of the bottle said:
Quote:
"My incendiary hot sauce will set your stomach off like a nuclear meltdown. Use it liberally for an excruciatingly painful taste experience. It is particularly handy for torture and interrogative matters. You will find that the flavor is more infectious than my entire biological weapons program. Enjoy!"

Sugar free ingredients include: Habañero peppers, African oleoresin, Scotch Bonnet peppers, salt, onion, vegetable oil & garlic.

Asif - Uh. Wow.

The back label is excruciatingly unfunny...but, hey, where can I get some of that stuff? It may come in handy for torture and interrogation purposes after all.

I actually found myself accidentally doing almost exactly this the other night. Except with a ragu. I thought I was feeding four, and then they kept inviting people until it was seven. So after four and a half hours of work, everyone left hungry.

Tell those greedy bitches to do a potluck! Honestly, that is so rude to burden one person [or home] with the responsibility of feeding the whole group... That's basically like going out to a restaurant and making you pay for the whole bill, only worse since you have to do all the cooking, too.

Yeah, I was pretty grumpy. And I refused to do any of the cleaning up, so my girlfriend, who had helped me a lot with the cooking, wound up doing most of it, and one of my housemates who had put salad and other accoutrement together wound up dealing with the rest. The other ungrateful, lazy sods have earned my irritation.

I know a good satisfying dinner for one... Go to your local Chinese Cultural center and pick up some lettuce wraps with a side of edamami (however you spell it), a soda, go home, eat it, then go pick up dessert at your local gay bar, whatever his name was... Wink I'm just sayin.

Wouldn't that just be a satisfying, slightly off-topic dinner for one gay guy? Who finds Japanese food at a Chinese cultural center? Being straight I'd have trouble getting a satisfying dessert from a gay bar.

Then go to a straight bar. You know, the ones that are permanently in black-and-white, a la Pleasantville.
