what are you eating today?

Recommended Posts

England's got like FUCK ALL for food man....food culture's really baaaaaad! only place around which can match would be london... else, all pretty much sucks

mmmm, I think thats only partly true, there are great places where you can buy exotic and rich meats, and alot of bastardised meals have came out of birtain - birtish curry, balti etc..... speaking of exotic meats I hear you can cop some tasty gorrilla meat on brick lane! But seriously outside of london in the country there is a lot of good food to be had, I do think britain is seriously lacking in anysort of food culture. I huge amount of lower to middle class houses do not contain a table big enough for the whole family to sit around, like over 50% or something. This probably has something to do with it. Another thing that really bugs me is that for an island there certainly isnt much quality seafood, whereas when I go to quiberon or south spain there is amazing seafood everywhere, hmph! Although scotland is even worse in places...however the coast up way north has some great restraunts and lots of good seafood.

I went for a terribly muddy bike ride today so I have a terribly british and slobby meal when I got back in,... a good ol fry up! Venison sausages and eggs, yum!

No marinade really. Lots of pepper and some sea salt, blasted on high each side for 3-5 minutes... medium rare.

I'm going to try and make a croque-monsieur now... ham/cheese sandiwch with french toast and a fried egg sunnyside up on top...

Salmon tonight!

I gotta prep for the sufu kiddies visiting! :D

Yeah... if someone's going to have steak well-done... they might as well have chicken.

Crap... I miss Hawaiian Drive-inn.... :(

Croque-madame action. Never made french toast before... should have used another egg for the batter. Threw some cinnamon and sugar in it as well. I think it turned out alright for the first attempt.

Hmmmm at least for the guests who are staying at my place. I would like to be able to feed them and not seem like a totally waste of life who just sits on his ass and lurks forums all day... :o

Seriously you'd have your way with me in the kitchen... I think the food I chose just looked sexy. And to think I'm eating this all alone with no food buddy. :-/

no man, if it looks this sexy it's good enough. it's the same for me.

yeah it sucks to be eating alone. where're your room mates?

anyway is that rosemary on the salmon? you're quite generous with the herbs. might overpower the natural flavour of the salmon.

i'm sure he cooks for himself quite often so he should know what he likes.

I went a bit schitzo on the spices to see what too far is... I was getting there. I hate doing things in little increments with cooking because it takes forever and you never get to the point where you know you've done too much--so I said fuck it. If we're going to do rosemary, let's do rosemary. Interestingly enough, rosemary is really strong but once it's been in the oven for 20 minutes, it mellows out a lot (at least the smell does.)

And yes, if y'all decide to come over and help me cook a dish or buy some ingredients... I'll (try) to cook. :)

Shall we do a food blog? I guess not for any of the super dull stuff... but I like how this is motivating me to make something instead of resorting to junk.

I think this place will be my food blog.

Who wants to be my dinner buddy? :(

i'll gladly be your dinner buddy - except we are half a world away man.

nairb you must remember to bring your camera out the next time you eat! seriously even now, i'm still forgetting to take pics before i devour my food.

but i second the idea of making this thread our food blog - and i empathise when you say this motivates you to eat better. i was just talking to valhalla about how accountability makes you more conscious of doing things better. be it how you dress or how you eat.
