What did you cook today?

Post by Runner_up » Sun Dec 02, 2018 1:51 pm

It's a shame that there is so little action in the "what's cookin'?" section in a kitchen knife forum. We should keep a thread running of what we actually cook with all of our fancy knives :D

Today's lunch was Ribeye, roasted taters with crispy garlic, pan sauce with gorgonzola, mushrooms, red wine.

My problem is I never think about pictures while I'm cooking. It's always after we've ate that I think "damn, I should have taken pictures of that!"
If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn't have made animals taste so good.

Not cooking per se, but some knife work for breakfast. House made currant jam, coconut yogurt, apple, dark chocolate.

The food tastes better after you've taken a picture. Ask any of the young kids at fine dining restaurants with their phones out. :D

Hehe, I made a quiche yesterday too, with Kerrygold swiss and slab bacon with some sauteed shallots. Cheated with Marie Callendar pie crust though

Nice - nothing wrong with store bought crust. I make mine without as I don't need the extra carbs at my age.

I hope to cook something good this weekend. Haven't cooked much lately. Just spent about 100 hours renovating/repairing my two kids' rooms. I am finally done!

Had I known what I know now, I would have bought a brad nailer and powered miter saw ... )-:

^ 👍👍 Yep made that mistake only once. So much faster and so much nicer work with both the brad nailer and powered miter saw.

Popovers on the menu for my weekend - I am going to make some honey butter to toss on them - light honey that just a adds a note of sweetness to unsalted butter with a little lavender (finely minced) as a color and flavor enhancer - have not had popovers since last winter. Thanks for the reminder.
