cheese and ketchup for me. i should do this for breakfast some mornings
i either do an egg sandwhich with cheese and ketchup on an english muffin with orange juice to drink or a toasted english muffin with peanutbutter with hot tea to drink. i'm pretty consistent with breakfast.
not really a recipe but it's delicious
extra virgin olive oil
put all ingredients in a pan with a lid turn on stove to medium when it begins to pop slowly and steadily turn the heat off (leave on the burner) this might work only on an electric stove. wait til it slows to about 2-3 seconds between pops and move it to a not hot burner let it finish popping (it will still pop a couple more time). it's good i like it better than flavoring it with butter. but you have to use the olive oil. I should get some infused olive oil. and use that.
Ohhhhh, awesome thread, a few weeks ago, I wanted to try my hand at making a Mirepoix mix, it ended up being the best Chicken Noodle Soup I've had.... and I alone gulped the thing in a day @.@.
What is needed:
Pan to saute vegetables.
Mirepoix mix (diced celery, carrot, onion, 1:1:1 or 1:1:2 ratio, can also buy a pre-made one like from Trader Joe's will do if you can't dice.): about 2 whole cups, 4 if you want more vegetables
A piece of chicken (boneless or bone-in is fine, the bones usually contribute to the soup taste)
1 can of chicken stock
A package of your favorite pasta or spaghetti noodle.
Crushed Black Pepper
Crushed White Pepper
1: Saute the Mirepoix mix until the onions become brown (or not-so-brown.)
2: Place sauteed Mirepoix mix into the crockpot
3: Pan-Fry the chicken so that the outside changes color slightly
4: Place chicken (with bones if there are any) into the Crockpot
5: Add the can of Chicken Stock into the Crockpot
6: Fill the Crockpot near full with water, adding a little bit of Salt and black/white pepper.)
7: Put Crockpot on high for a few hours
8: Stir every 30minutes-hour
9: Once water starts bubbling, add the pasta/spaghetti, bring the Crockpot to low.
10: Wait ~30minutes to an hour (depending on how you like your pasta/spaghetti)
11: Take the piece(s) of Chicken out to take the bone away from the meat, it should be very easy (very much like pulled pork)
12: Place Chicken back into Crockpot and stir
13: Ready to eat (add more Salt and Pepper for taste.)
Takes between 8-12 hours to make, but most of that time is spent waiting.
Ah, why couldn't I have come across this thread earlier? This is awesome!
I suppose this one might be too simple, but makes for a nice cold drink:
MANGO STRAWBERRY LASSI
1/2 mango (peeled and diced)
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Sugar (to taste)
Water (optional, to reach desired consistency)
In a blender, place the mango, strawberries and some sugar to taste. Add plain yogurt [and water, if you would like to make the consistency of the lassi thinner], and blend all ingredients together.
If you want, you can even substitute the mango and strawberries with any other combination of fruits of your choice.
Only she who attempts the absurd can achieve the impossible... and then some.
1 cup white rice, rinsed
4 cups water
juice and zest of 2 limes
one 3-inch stick of cinnamon
2 tablespoons blanched almonds
2 tablespoons roasted sesame seeds
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
1. Soak rice in water with lime juice and zest, cinnamon stick, almonds and sesame seeds for 1 hour.
2. Blend together and let sit for 3 hours at room temperature.
3. Strain into a pot, place over low heat, whisk in the ground cinnamon, milk, and sugar. Bring to a low simmer. Strain again and chill.
