(just kidding don't really eat tortilla chips)
Azteca Fire, wow, looks interesting. I'll have to try some if I am ever near a Teavana.
Cucurbita... honey and tea! Maybe just some chamomile tea.
@sorethroat Mug of hot water + lemon juice + honey + chilli flesh + grated ginger. Works surprisingly well.
I find popsicles are nice when I have a sore throat, they are a must have for me during allergy season.
Vanilla extract + earl grey tea = cure for any sore throat.
I usually go for the hot tea with honey approach to sore throats. Comforting and tasty. Unless you don't have any good hot tea stuff in the house and have to resort to using the stuff meant for iced tea. Then it's just bitter and terrible no matter how much honey you put in it. =/
Also, I tried my hand at making a meal with kielbasa the other night. My dad cooks with the stuff all the time, and I found some turkey kielbasa on sale at the grocery store near where I'm interning, so I thought I'd try it with some rice or something. Had no butter for the rice like the directions called for, so I just fried up the meat first so the juices would take the butter's place. Had no lid for my pan like the directions called for either, so I used a baking pan to cover the rice while it cooked. Got distracted by the internet and burned some of the rice to the bottom of the pan, but just left it on the bottom so it wouldn't get mixed in with the good rice.
Even with the mishaps and constant fear of setting off the apartment's fire alarm, it all turned out surprisingly good. Chicken Fajita flavored Rice-a-Roni+Turkey Polska Kielbasa=three days of tasty lunches. It's very salty though so if you weren't raised putting an unhealthy amount of salt on everything you might not like it. I have to forget health concerns every now and then and make something that reminds me of home. :3
Two pieces of toast + Omelet in skillet after frying bacon making more of a fried egg than an omelet but throwing in the bacon that I just fried into it = sandwich for lunch.
actually very good.
My country instant noodles. If not for my own healt, I would've eat it three times a day.
ok so I just went to the gas station to get some subway, and I ended up buying my favorite chips in the entire world. They're Vitner's brand (the SIZZLIN HOT Crunchy kurls). They usually take a few months to get some more after running out so I've been buying the shit out of these. I got the last 2 bags on the shelf. ♥ Like, I swear, I can't explain how great these are.
and I'm washing them down with peach faygo. nom.
The guy who invented instant noodles claims that he ate it every day for the rest of his life, so I wouldn't put it too far out of the realm of possibility.
My apparent favorite "chip" is jalapeno flavored cheetos.
Not every brand adds MSG and/or other sources of sodium I think.
Which reminds me: have you heard of NEWater? (It's just ordinary water.) It has 0.005 g sodium in it I think.
As for instant noodles, I eat it when I don't feel too hungry for rice (I'm a rice burner -- 5 ~ 6 bowls a day!)
I don't know why, but I don't like rice.
I like rice cakes and rice crispys, though!
Adding banana peppers and hot sauce to pasta sauce is pretty A-Ok in my book.
Don't know why I'm on this hot sauce/spicy food kick but it certainly is making me try odd combinations of food.
i've eaten about thirty million sunflower seeds in the last week
Mmmm Clams are amazing.
I wish I had some mei fun from this little Chinese shack I know about.
But it's too cold to go get it.
What about you guys, mei fun y/n?
Dunno what mei fun is. =/
Made some awesome biscuits today, though. Was trying to get rid of this half gallon of milk I bought and promptly forgot about before it expired, so I mixed it with Bisquick mix and maple syrup to make drop biscuits. Dug a little hole in the middle of each glop of dough and drizzled some more syrup inside, then pinched over it with the biscuit edges. Took under 15 mins total to make and made five huge biscuits. They're a pretty golden color, which I can never seem to get when I bake, sort of onion-shaped, which is neat, and have a lovely mapley flavor soaked in from all the syrup. I imagine they'd have been even better if I'd had some blueberries or something on hand. Will definitely have to try making these again some time.
Mei fun = 米粉 = Rice vermicelli!
Rice is my life
I mean sure I could go without it
but you cannot take my tasty heritage away
Guys Sbarro. It's delicious. They have the best marinara ever.
does anybody have a good recipe for asiago (or any similar cheese) and jalepeno bread/rolls? Or just with jalepenos? I don't have a bread maker so I'll have to do it old school, but I have had SUCH A CRAVING for this bread and I don't want to buy it because store bought, if you can find it, is just not as good. Once I finish my required hospitality course and kitchen safety course I will be enrolling in some culinary classes (and then maybe applying to a culinary school? hmmmm), but til then my personal repertoire of recipes has been limited.
I can also say, on the subject of pasta/instant noodles/etc, we got my mother a pasta maker from Williams Sonoma (If you want to get good cooking utensils that last forever, go there. They have the best utensils ever, and they are more than worth the few dollars extra you'll be shelling out). It's a traditional hand-cranked and comes with the regular roller (to flatten the dough and get the air bubbles out as well as make lasagna noodles, flatten dough for ravioli, etc), fettuccine, spaghetti, and I think one more. Despite the fact that I always get to be the one to lay the noodles out on their towels to dry (a lot more difficult than one would think, if you have limited space), the noodles have been VERY delicious. I've only had a bite of them (though she's made them twice so far) because both times I was ill, but it was SO GOOD. If you have never experienced fresh pasta before you have never lived. I was strongly reminded of the 2 weeks I got to spend in italy when I was younger.
