I love a super proper salad: herb mix greens, baby spinach, carrots, mushrooms, tomato, cucumber, candied pecans/walnuts/almonds, dried cranberries, feta - crumbled, and balsamic dressing (olive oil, peper, good quality balsamic vinegar). Add any other vegetables (snow peas are tasty). Top with meat as desired.

Oh, and don't add the cucumbers until after you pour the balsamic dressing. They soak a lot of it up and end up tasting like vigegar.

Stir Fry: like Kilgore said but I like to use bean sprouts, snow peas, and firm tofu. Peanuts are tasty to stick in too.

Check out www.epicurious.com too. Anything with a rating over 85% is probably good enough to make for guests.

My favorite is shabu shabu.

Boil water.

Dump vegetables and meat in water a few at a time. Take out when done.

Eat with sauce. I use bought shabu shabu sauce because I'm lazy.

Here's fast and easy.

Buy frozen raw shelled and deveined shrimp. Cook for a few minutes in a deep frying pan with just a bit of oil in the pan to grease it until the shrimp are white. It shouldn't take long at all if you put the shrimp in the fridge to thaw. Use birdseye's big bag o' stir fry veggies and dump them into the pan with the shrimp. Cover, stir every so often. Cook until the veggies are as crisp or soft as you'd like them to be. Stir in some La Choy duck sauce. Stir until warm. Mmm!

Or... buy the cooked peeled and deveined shrimp, thaw and eat with cocktail sauce, crackers and cheese and other munchies.

Also, what's wrong with cucumbers tasting like vinegar!? I love slicing up a cucumber, pouring apple cider vinegar over it, letting it sit for a little bit and then eating the slices with a bit of salt. Mmm!

Balsamic is really strong though. It really overpowers everything. I like to taste my green and the dressing. I coat the salad and then toss the cucumbers in that way the cucumbers have dressing but aren't soaked.

Let's see... recipes...


...uh...


Superior Chocolate Milkshake:
1 1/2 cups milk
2 cups Chocolate Icecream
Big ol' mess of Chocolate Syrup
3 tablespoons NesQuik
1 cup Chocolate Pudding.

Blend milk and Quik in a blender first, then add icecream, syrup, and pudding, blend until smooth and creamy.
Note: all measures are approximate, I have never actually measured them out and instead just eyeball them.

Other than that, I have started adding some Quaker Oats to my Frosted Flakes.

I tried to cook spaghetti once and it made me sick. Confused

But I ate the whole thing anyway.

...wait, maybe this should go in the "I'm So Manly" thread. Question *shrug*

I tried to make curry one time with beer.

it didn't came out that great.

I tried to make chili one time with beer.

it also didn't come out that great.

funny thing is that the common denominator isn't beer, it's me, I burnt both dishes.

I'm sure they'd taste better if I didn't burn them.

Here's a recipe for a chip dip that has served as dinner before. And the cool thing is that you can make it in the microwave.

Rotel
Can of chili with NO beans
Cheddar cheese (can substitute velveeta IF YOU MUST)
1/2 package of cream cheese

Melt in microwave, ladle into bowls and provide a really big bag of tortilla chips.

oh! And a summer cocktail, so you won't care so much that you didn't cook.

1 part vodka
3 parts orange juice
2 tablespoons peach sherbet

The ol' Pimm's Cup is supposed to be a fine summer drink, but I can't give it a personal endorsment on account of I've yet to try it.

I recommend a wheat beer (note: hold the citrus) or a nice pale ale.

I just made this today. It was really quick and pretty tasty. Reverse the amount of mustard and cream (1/2 cup cream, 2 tbl mustard - it has to be a mistake the way it is written). I would add some black pepper and maybe some paprika. We also dusted the pork with flour, black pepper, corriander, and paprika so it was kinda breaded. We also just poured the sauce over the pork instead of cooking it in the oven with the pork. It was really good. We served it on pasta but it would be fine alone.

This takes a while but may be the best thing I have cooked yet. I'll find some more stuff later.

You're welcome! It is damn delicious and super easy. You can even get a little fancy with it by adding different flavors of salsa. A mango salsa in it is surprisingly good.
