dinner [Jan. 10th, 2001|10:52 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
went over to blythe's and ate. they made sushi. i hate sushi. it smells like ass.
i ate salad (part of my grocery run), and chicken.

after dinner we watched Temptation Island ... pretty amusing, in that it was so cheesy.

lately i haven't been really eating regularly... i wait until I'm starving, then start thinking about food, realize I don't have any food, don't know how to cook, and am sick of eating out, so I still don't eat. then, when the opportunity arrives to get food, I eat too quick and my stomach hurts. then, i wait until I'm starving again. i'm going to learn to cook, oh yes.

i told blythe, kenji, and amy that next week i'm cooking for them. i have the menu all planned out, now I just have to learn how to make it.

Can't go wrong with Spag Bol.

  • Chop onions, mushrooms and peppers. Heat until sizzling in a pan, transfer to dish, and keep warm under grill.
  • Brown some mince.
  • Boil rice/spag.
  • Add spag bol sauce, stir in.
  • Add chopped stuff.
  • Stir until piping hot.

    Dead easy, and nice!

    I don't find fish all that delicious when it's cooked.. Don't think I'd be too keen on eating it while it's still flapping on my plate.

    And on top of that we always here about needles and shit washing up on the shore. How many fish are now radioactive and are pumped up on drugs? And then on top of it, all the people in the ocean releaving themself trying to stay warm.

    I think i prefer beef rolling around in its own dung thank you very much...

    Cooking isn't too bad

    Unless you are trying to dream your own shit up, cooking isn't difficult at all, as long as you can read directions. Usually the hardest part is making sure you have all the ingredients (which I never did), and then going to the store and getting the missing stuff.

    Go to one of the online recipe sites, like AllRecipies.com or SOAR, and fine a few recipes for what you want to cook. Take a look at all of them, and decide which one you want to follow. There is a little 'voodoo' in this, because if you haven't made it, you don't know if the recipe is good. The obvious alternative to this is to get a recipe from someone else.... Since very few of my friends cook, I usually just experiment (and I have had good luck picking recipes at random).

    Once you have the recipe, unless it calls for extreme measures, it is a matter of cutting and preparing your ingredients, placing them all in/on the heating device, and waiting the proper amount of time. About 3/4ths of the way through the expected time, double check on it to make sure it isn't burning/slow.

    If you want to get all fancy, you can try and work on your presentation and dish, otherwise you can slap it onto a plate. I practiced cooking tons this past summer (yes, even CS majors can cook)... If you need any advice, give a yell...

    I've seen SOAR.. I'll have to check out that other one... thanks.

    I think my biggest problem is patience. :-(

    Re: Cooking isn't too bad

    SOAR kicks ass, some REAL good recipes on SOAR. If you like soup at all, try looking up Tuscan soup. It is REAL easy, just chicken broth and some condensed milk, browned italian sausage, chopped potatoes, Spinach (the spinach ends up tasting like the rest of the soup, which ends up tasting like a spicy cream soup). This is the best soup IN THE WORLD. They serve it at the Olive Garden, they call it Zuppa Toscana. Amazing soup.
