recipes for disaster (or dinner maybe)

I want to broaden my horizons a bit with my parents away for a few weeks as of Thursday. I am not too bad at cooking so sort of medium difficult stuff is ok, aswell as any good easy ideas for dinner.

The main thing I guess is that the recipes don't make way too much food for one person, or require extremely hard to find ingredients.

I like most kinds of food, any Thai or Chinese recipes would be cool if you think they're within my league.

Also interesting lunch type things.


And feel free to use this as general recipe thread aswell, or to talk about stuff you've cooked.

Do they do the ceremonial beheading/gutting?

Ronan (Ronan), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:29 (nineteen years ago) link

If you're lucky. I hear that they're a bugger to skin

chris (chris), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:29 (nineteen years ago) link

also will i be eating rabbit sandwiches and rabbit soup for days afterwards, bearing in mind I'll be the only one at home.

Ronan (Ronan), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:31 (nineteen years ago) link

(unless i invite some mates around to show off)

Ronan (Ronan), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:31 (nineteen years ago) link

doubt it, a whole rabbit just about fed me and Jonnie, although there was much red wine type gravy the next day to have with mash potatoes

chris (chris), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:33 (nineteen years ago) link

Smear a chopped pork fillet with garlic (a touch of salt) pounded within an inch of its life and mixed with a teaspoon of olive oil. Brown. Add a tin of tomatoes and a tin of chickpeas and some West indian Hot Sauce. Cook for about twenty minutes, add a splash of lemon juice, season and then dump in the same weight of spinach as the pork fillet. When it wilts, coriander leaves and serve with crusty bread.

Numm numm numm. And very easy.

Pete (Pete), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:34 (nineteen years ago) link

I only have so much money geeta dear

Ronan (Ronan), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:35 (nineteen years ago) link

chris (chris), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:35 (nineteen years ago) link

geeta get my bow and arrow

Ronan Hood (Ronan), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:38 (nineteen years ago) link

(tho' pete west indian hot sauce seems ambiguous, is it available in "most good supermarkets", I am looking forward to making that already)

Ronan (Ronan), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:39 (nineteen years ago) link

A West indian Pepper Sauce can be substituted with a few flaked dried chillis, but yes - this is availible in all supermarkets I know of (by you are in Ireland so...) Tabasco would also work.

Pete (Pete), Tuesday, 4 November 2003 14:46 (nineteen years ago) link

I am about to make this now. I will report back.

Ronan (Ronan), Sunday, 9 November 2003 18:29 (nineteen years ago) link

get a can of thai curry paste, a can of coconut milk, and whatever vegetables/meats you like. saute the paste with the coconut milk and cook with the other ingredients. voila.

lauren (laurenp), Sunday, 9 November 2003 18:39 (nineteen years ago) link

For lunch this is how I've made a tunafish sandwich once:
tunafish
mayo
pickles
peppers
brie
onions
crakers (crumbled)
garlic
basil pesto
parsley
rosemary
hot sauce

whoa Pete you are on my christmas card list! That was great. I am now revelling in the glory of post spicy food beer/cigarette

Ronan (Ronan), Sunday, 9 November 2003 19:29 (nineteen years ago) link

christ how big are rabbits over there?

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 20:52 (nineteen years ago) link

obviously the reasons the flintstones weren't like 900 lbs (considering the size of their portions) is that they were on some proto-atkins shit

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 20:52 (nineteen years ago) link

ronan i suggest buying a $6 tub of peanut butter and several bags of celery.

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 20:53 (nineteen years ago) link

after about the fourth day you barely notice the creeping insanity

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 20:54 (nineteen years ago) link

apart from the emptiness of the whisky bottle and the unstoppable urge to listen to Renegade Snares (Foul Play VIP mix) that is

Ricardo (RickyT), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:38 (nineteen years ago) link

seriously, quitting cigarettes and hard drugs has been easier than cutting carbohydrates out of my life

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:39 (nineteen years ago) link

Jess, you fucker, you've not joined the Atkins cult have you?

Ricardo (RickyT), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:47 (nineteen years ago) link

i am desperate!

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:48 (nineteen years ago) link

i have to fit into my prom dress

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:48 (nineteen years ago) link

*looks sadly at shreds of black satin on floor*

Ricardo (RickyT), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:51 (nineteen years ago) link

any "diet" where you can eat fried chicken and still lose weight is alright by me!

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:52 (nineteen years ago) link

though i'm fiendin for a piece of bread so bad i could chew my arm off

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:52 (nineteen years ago) link

Mmm, bread.

I think I'm gonna make myself a houmous and watercress sandwich.

Ricardo (RickyT), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:56 (nineteen years ago) link

haha you bastard

goato mountington (dubplatestyle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 21:56 (nineteen years ago) link

I think fried chicken is already violating the diet jess. breading? In the beginning you've got to watch out for *all* carbs.

A Girl Named Sam (thatgirl), Sunday, 9 November 2003 23:17 (nineteen years ago) link

Atkins is wack, by that diet's logic everybody in Japan would weigh 5,000 lbs. Also Thailand, China, etc.

Ronan there's a way that people make potatos in upstate NY that's quite delicious v. plain comfort food. You skin the potatos, then boil the hell out of them in a solution that's half water, half milk, and like a full quarter-cup of salt (or more, even!). These way salty potatos will make you feel very warm and loved.

Jess however cannot eat them.

J0hn Darn1elle (J0hn Darn1elle), Sunday, 9 November 2003 23:22 (nineteen years ago) link

how do you figure that john? Japanese diets are very lean with lots of seafood and soy.

A Girl Named Sam (thatgirl), Sunday, 9 November 2003 23:26 (nineteen years ago) link

recipe for taste-sensational act of madness:

I have a package of chicken, tortellini, and sundrieds from TJ's (it's been sitting in the fridge for a week and I forgot I'd even bought it -- hope it's still good), and some leftover fresh basil. Tomorrow night I'm gonna get a couple cans of pureed tomato, throw the whole mess together, heat it up, and call it soup.

Annouschka (Jody Beth Rosen), Sunday, 9 November 2003 23:29 (nineteen years ago) link

this all sounds good for being creative with my charms
