I love cooking though ... tonight I made pork chops, homemade mashed potato's and corn on the cob. Yesterday I made a teryaki veggie stirfry over white rice ...Yum!

It's too bad I only cook for one.


I hate cooking Diva, so if you want to cook for me I will not complain . That teriyaki veggie stirfry sounds yummy.

Of course, getting the food across the Pond might cause a few problems.

Mmmmm... I have friends who can't stand mushrooms, but fungus is one of my favorite types of organism to eat. Portobello are definitely tasty, and I can get them just about any time of year from my supermarket, even if they are a bit pricey. I love brushing them with soy sauce or teriyaki and grilling them. Served over rice... ::droooool::

Hmmm. I have tried e-mailing food before, but it always gets smooshed when I put it in the CD-Rom!

How about snail mail?!?!

Not sure about snail mail, if it is as good as it sounds, it will get eaten before it gets here.
If ever, I will supply the ingredients, all you will have to do is supply the cook .

Don't smoosh it into the CD-Rom! The CD-Rom is still useful.

Instead smoosh it into the 5 1/4" floppy disc slot! (True, it's slow and doesn't hold much, but, unless you have an 8" floppy drive hidden somewhere, the only programs you'll find on those floppies are already posted on the net for free. )

Too late. I wish you had given me this advice a month ago! (LOL)

I don't have a 5 1/5 floppy! (See my post on "What kind of computer do you drive for more info)

...But I do think I have one around here somewhere. Hmmm... maybe if I installed that, I could smoosh more food into my computer! ...Nah it already smells an omlette left in the sun for 2 weeks.

What do Geeks eat? Hmmm -> this particular geek actually enjoys cooking. Consequently, my eating habits tend to cross a lot of cultures - predominantly mediterranean and middle eastern, with a bit of Asian thrown in for variety.

Ever since my ex discovered a near fatal allergy to nuts {and I seem to have a similar sensitivity), the list of restaurants I trust has gotten very, very small. {There's lots of good restaurants around, but very few that are careful enough in their kitchens to guarantee that no nut contact occurs}

Anyhow - cooking's a bit of a hobby for me, and my tastes range all over the world. {Sadly, my travel budget doesn't...}

Grog...

Um...food....let's see.

Lots of pasta/macaroni. Usually Mac-Cheese, canned soup (whatever brand is on sale), oh, Meijer's canned Chilli (actually a store brand of Hormel, but $2 cheaper) (oh, so many great big hunks of ground beef!). I like spaghetti, sometimes I make my own sauce so I can let it boil down for a few hours and get real thick (or if I really am craving my oregano), but usually sauce from a can. I also make Macaroni and Hot Dogs and Cheese (kinda' a personal fave), sometimes I forgo the cheese for some pasta sauce or stewed tomatoes (it's better for me that way ).

Let's see, out of the pasta rhelm, tuna, toast, cereal (Cheerios, my fave!!!), a good ol' juicy big honkin' slab of cow on a bun (MAJOR YUM!) espically grilled, Dominos Pizza or Little Cezers is cheaper, eggs, lots of eggs, cookies!, chips, pretzles, PB&J, PB&Butter(&J), Ice cream!, grilled cheese, pancakes, french toast, oatmeal (quick-oats (who has 3 minutes to wait for oatmeal?)), did I mention cookies?...

Oh yeah, and, once in a while I feel like making something special, so I head over to www.cookingbynumbers.com (that's assuming they still exist). Pretty cool site, you tell them what's in your kitchen, they tell you what you can cook with it, now THAT'S the real power of the internet (and a real geeky way to do some real cooking).

Oh yeah, almost forgot, coffeé, strong, lots of it, with sugar and milk (preferably Starbucks, usually Maxwell House or, even cheaper, Meijer).

Oh man, that's great. Memories of my one and only trip to the Crescent City.

CrawGator's Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

1/2 cup cooking oil & 1/2 cup of flour
1 cup of chopped onion
3/4 cup of chopped bell pepper
3/4 cup of chopped celery
2-1/2 tablespoons of garlic
1 can of chicken stock
3 pounds of chicken deboned
1 pound of smoked sausage

salt, pepper (red and/or black), celery powder, file (sasafrass)

Put chicken in pot of water and let it boil.
In a frying pan cook your sausage a bit to help bring out the flavor.
Mix the oil and flour in a large stock pot to make a roux and turn on hi.
Stir to keep it from sticking and burning.
Cook it until it's a dark brown (between caramel and chocolate).
Add onion, bell pepper celery and garlic. turn heat down just a bit (about 6 or 7). Cook until the onions are looking clear.
When chicken is done, take out of pot and cut up into chunks.
Add water used for chicken into large pot with roux and vegtable season mix.
Add can of chicken stock, chicken and sausage, to the stock pot.
Add water so that the liquid has a light milky brown/green look.
Add salt, pepper, celery powder and file to taste.
Let it simmer for about 1-1/2 hours.

Serve over rice.

If you live alone you might want to cut the recipe in half. When I cook, I make enough to last a few meals and freeze some for later.

CrawGator: The Gumbo sounds great. I'll have to try. Or course, you should be using Anduille rather than plain old smoked sausage, but I won't hold it against you.

I do use it sometimes, depends on if I feel like splurging. It is a little more expensive than regular sausage.

Life is too short to drink cheap wine. If I'm going to wear it around my middle for the rest of my life, I might as well fully enjoy the taste.

Supreme Pizza with extra sauce!!!!!! =D

OR... sushi. Spicy sushi. >=)

OR... barbequed ribs. The way dad makes 'em.

OR... my mom's pot roast.

OR... my grandma's sinigang... gotta love that Filipino food!!!!

Unfortunately, though, I had a sandwich for lunch and leftovers for dinner... but, alas, when you work more than 12 hours straight, without a lunch break, you tend to not really want to cook any gourmet dinners when you get home at the end of the day... Is it me, or are geeks underappreciated? I think I'm an overworked, almost burned-out engineer... =P

Crawgator, is that minced, chopped or powdered garlic in your recipe there?  I'm suddenly interested in trying out a little cajun cooking.

I'm heavily omnivorous.  I used to grill a lot of chicken and some steak, and do stir-fry, but I've gotten out of the habit of stir-frying and I quit grilling when my grill broke.  Fortunately most of the stuff I liked to grill still tastes fine when oven-roasted, so I do that on occasion.  I make a pretty good pork roast and I've gotten into a habit of making casserole dishes which work fine with leftover whatever but could be made meatless if so desired; they depend heavily on pasta, tomato sauces, onions, mushrooms and whatever veggies are handy so they don't necessarily depend on any one thing in particular.

I used to make a pretty good pie crust but I haven't had the inclination to make pie in a while.  I can whip up enough chicken-noodle or mushroom-barley soup to feed a small army, though.  Got any small armies you want fed?
