i'm making a turkey pot pie out of some frozen leftover filling. trying to work on my cheap food and pie crust skills, both. what are some other meat pies?

made a pinto soup puree (from https://patijinich.com/tarascan-soup/). seems pretty nice. cooked pintos fresh for it bc i thought that would make a difference flavorwise but maybe wasn't necessary. put a little too much ancho in, but it'll be completely fine once avo, cilantro, and a little sour cream gets stirred in.

have all the fixins for tempeh reubens so looking forward to some killer sandwiches during the week

I was just reading a buzzfeed on chipotle's guac recipe. Someone in the comments mentions that you should let the lime juice, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno etc (basically everything but the avocado) macerate before mashing it all up. Like the French Laundry gazpacho, I wonder if this is the nudge to make it super good but still fresh tasting. Am going to try that this weekend.

Also, I have an interest in trying to make mochi but need to find some glutinous rice flour first- may be impossible.

that's a cool idea abt the guac, plz report back!

Emperor Tonetta Ketchup (sleeve), Thursday, 18 April 2019 01:01 (five years ago) link

that does seem like a good idea.

i made risotto tonight. i've done it a few times before but this was the first time i think i really nailed it.

call all destroyer, Thursday, 18 April 2019 01:08 (five years ago) link

probably tempers the raw onion a bit too, i am cautious about onions in guac and sometimes omit them. a couple weeks ago i made guac by mixing fresh green salsa my mexican store sells, it's very hot, with an avocado. it was good.

forensic plumber (harbl), Thursday, 18 April 2019 01:55 (five years ago) link

i make a few things with raw onion in and prefer to let them sit in the lemon/lime juice for a bit while I get the other stuff ready

made quiche lorraine in a deep pie dish for easter, and it was tasty. now i own a nice deep pie dish. i fear for my health.

blanching onion is good if you're worried about it being too much.

findom haddie (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 25 April 2019 16:48 (five years ago) link

Because "food, it puts me in a good mood" and also bc "o.my.lanta!".https://www.instagram.com/p/BwuwyULhrC1/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=1he0i1otcw7pt

Oh, alternatively soaking for ten minutes in a ice bath keeps onion raw while taking away most of the bite

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Friday, 26 April 2019 20:30 (five years ago) link

I still need to try to make the guac, I ended up making gazpacho instead. Maybe this weekend if the avocados look good.

Ugh, I would make that raviolo with egg yolk in a heartbeat. Except my spouse doesn't eat dairy or eggs (or meat). So it would be a lot of work for me to eat them all, which I am also not opposed to.

Yerac, Friday, 26 April 2019 20:44 (five years ago) link

Maybe I should just be decadent and make two for myself and use the rest of the dough for regular pasta.

Yerac, Friday, 26 April 2019 20:48 (five years ago) link

Do it! I've never seen a egg yolk the size of a tennis ball before. But Tha guy's nettle dough, too - so freakin lovely looking. Probably not that difficult but I've also never worked with them. spot on about using this idea though imho.

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Friday, 26 April 2019 21:00 (five years ago) link

Oh I didn't even realize it was a goose egg. I am going to be in France all of July so maybe I should try to find one there then.

Yerac, Friday, 26 April 2019 21:10 (five years ago) link

bien sûr

received my alkali salts in the mail today to make chewier noodles. now will i actually make them.

camp pendleton subway yelp review (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 26 April 2019 22:09 (five years ago) link

that insta ravioli is gigantic. I wonder if it needs to be that size to get the pasta and yolk to cook nicely together.

camp pendleton subway yelp review (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 26 April 2019 22:12 (five years ago) link

that's a pretty clever thought. i think it's that size on account of the yolk. i noticed in the comments someone asked how long to boil for a just cooked yolk and pastaio say 4 minutes. which seems around the length of time i think rav usu cooks?
what kinda noods ya makin', S G? i baked baking soda once for homemade ramen and it worked really well. but was a bit of a pita to watch/bake

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Friday, 26 April 2019 23:06 (five years ago) link

i'm going to follow the "alkaline noodles" dough recipe in momofuku (I am a one note poster). but I think I will cut them more like fettuccine size to use in a tofu khao soi. I discovered that I still have some curry paste left over for that recipe hidden deep in my fridge cheese drawer.

camp pendleton subway yelp review (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 26 April 2019 23:22 (five years ago) link

oh! thx for reminding me abt khao soi. imma try that soon. do you have a recipe you like? pretty sure i got the baked baking soda idea from lucky peach, speaking of the 'fuku people

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Friday, 26 April 2019 23:31 (five years ago) link

I make the curry paste from nite+market for it. I just like the soupier noodle format more than the other curries. Lots of toppings also makes it fun. Also enjoy not having bland chicken breast in there.

camp pendleton subway yelp review (Sufjan Grafton), Saturday, 27 April 2019 01:24 (five years ago) link

adding some salts to noodles is 10 times easier and cheaper than adding eggs. I hope i like these bc i want to do it this way every time.

camp pendleton subway yelp review (Sufjan Grafton), Saturday, 27 April 2019 05:43 (five years ago) link

ty! looks super!

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Saturday, 27 April 2019 13:31 (five years ago) link

Interested in how the noodles turned out. I was just reading the seriouseats on alkaline noodles because of this thread but it got too complicated. I miss living in oahu where you could get every type of fresh noodle from Sun Noodles for $1-2 in the grocery stores.

Yerac, Saturday, 27 April 2019 16:39 (five years ago) link

I keep debating about whether i should make tempura crunchies to use in poke and sushi rolls but I kind of don't want to deal with that much oil to fry them in.

Yerac, Saturday, 27 April 2019 16:40 (five years ago) link

now yer making me miss living right by Japantown in sf - the tempura and ramen joints i def miss and don't know places near to me now that i trust. but i really miss the noodle selection at the market both fresh and dried. sigh

y'know when i made fresh ramen noodles it was rly quite simple. baking the baking soda took a hour and i had to watch it not toast. but after that the dough mixed up just like ordinary pasta dough and i used my hand crank to roll 'em out (i think on spaghetti setting)

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Saturday, 27 April 2019 17:10 (five years ago) link

trying to not grocery shop and use up stuff from the fridge/shelves. made:
coleslaw, brined as recommended in seriouseats recipe
whole wheat sandwich loaves from smitten kitchen. not sure these will turn out great. it's basically a no knead recipe. also my whole wheat flour is old but my mom gave it to me and i want to use it before buying more. i think they'll be just edible.
chicken karahi

in other news i have not bought lunch at work in all of april. my pantry-clearing has been a big part of this. $$$$$$$

I think these noodles were good? they had a bit of chew and felt like egg noodles. definitely not soggy. I haven't made flour noodles without the salts, so I can't compare directly. khao soi feels a bit like thai stroganoff, so thankfully it's been a bit colder here lately. I'd take paneer kofta over kaho soi in a battle of soupy curry. might try spaghetti with alkaline noodles and see if anybody notices. separating eggs for noodles is a drag.

I freshened up my homepage recently and was inspired to upload my snickerdoodle recipe. Bake snickerdoodles, they're good. http://jklol.net/snicks.html

Your review of Jane Eyre made me chortle.

xpost I always just do flour, water, salt (not a fan of egg in it) for asian noodles but I would want to try those salts.

Yerac, Tuesday, 30 April 2019 00:01 (five years ago) link

thx Yerac

and just to chime in I had success with using baked baking soda to make chewy ramen noodles, but only tried it once. easier than ordering chemicals.

Y'all I'm making strawberry rhubarb jam this weekend, has anyone done this? I have found a million diff recipes with a million diff proportions of straberry to rhubarb (ranging from like 1:4 to 4:1). I THINK I'm going to do 1:1?? I def don't want it to taste like strawberry jam w/ no rhubarby flavor but I still want a nice strawberry flavor too, I just don't know!!!

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Friday, 3 May 2019 21:10 (five years ago) link

Can you go in small batches until you zero in on the right ratio? Like, enough for 2 half-pints at a time.

WmC, Friday, 3 May 2019 21:21 (five years ago) link

a nancy silverton style brute force optimization

i got bag sauce in my bag (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 3 May 2019 22:07 (five years ago) link

just pick one. do 1:1. it will work. if it's not just right do it different next time! i have the same analysis paralysis about EVERYTHING.

forensic plumber (harbl), Friday, 3 May 2019 23:35 (five years ago) link

I think macerating the non-avocado ingredients for guac ( we did one hour) did make a noticeable difference. I am still saying "think" because I only project managed the making from another room so didn't ensure the usual proportions were kept. The onion seemed less sharp and everything was nicely acidic right away instead of needing some time to chill out. The day ofter leftover was noticeably better as well.

Yerac, Tuesday, 7 May 2019 14:25 (five years ago) link

lately been lightly roasting brussels, cutting them into shreds, and dressing in the fish sauce vin to add as slaw in whole grain bowls with shaking tofu and other toppings. also added to the trader joe's thai veg burgers (which aren't so great). good topping for stuff, especially where you can't add fish sauce vin alone without making a mess.

I had a spectacular raw Brussels sprout salad at a restaurant the other week which I need to try and recreate. Soft goat cheese pine nuts and a tart light lemony dressing.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Friday, 10 May 2019 23:19 (five years ago) link

oh, those both sound great.
Sufjan, what you're doing puts me in the mind of my fave brussels dish (from momofuku)https://food52.com/recipes/19682-momofuku-s-roasted-brussels-sprouts-with-fish-sauce-vinaigrette xpost

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Saturday, 11 May 2019 12:51 (five years ago) link

The one time I was at Momofuku ages ago my wife and a friend and I were ordering a bunch of dishes to share and they wanted the Brussels sprouts which seemed like a waste to me because I thought I didn’t like Brussels sprouts. This was like a life altering dish for me because they were so good and it made me drastically rethink a bunch of my food opinions for the better.

I remember Ilan who had just won Top Chef was at a table with a bunch of important looking white guys in suits who seemed to be sniffing him out and he looked absolutely terrified and out of his element.

joygoat, Saturday, 11 May 2019 13:39 (five years ago) link

i bought strawberries and rhubarb this morning. i will be making a pie. i got a new tart/quiche dish on amazon yesterday but if it's not here by the afternoon i'm just going to use my regular pie dish. might go strawberry picking sometime next week. i want to make a jam, too.

forensic plumber (harbl), Saturday, 11 May 2019 14:02 (five years ago) link

Oh, I want to try that momofuku brussells sprouts recipe. I buy about a kilo every week to roast, and I am questioning whether I can make myself not wash them (as the recipe brings up).

I am not in love with the fish sauce I have here though. The one with the squid on it. It's a little too pungent for me even though I know a lot of that smell blows off.

Yerac, Saturday, 11 May 2019 15:54 (five years ago) link

that looks good but i need to buy a bottle of cheaper fish sauce! a half cup!
i am always not washing brussels sprouts, out of pure laziness. fuck washing brussels sprouts.

forensic plumber (harbl), Saturday, 11 May 2019 16:14 (five years ago) link

i never wash them! just peel off the outer layer of leaves.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 11 May 2019 16:49 (five years ago) link

i think i've recently started giving 'em a little wash on account of all the public health classes i've been taking. but it's probably pointless as far as pesticides go if outer leaves are removed, as per cad. as far as the recipe goes, i've never roasted 2# before, but i'm thinking for that amount of sprouts one could halve the dressing recipe and be fine. they'll absorb some of the dressing after roasting and if you douse the heck out of 'em they may get too salty

The immortal Hydra Viridisimma (outdoor_miner), Saturday, 11 May 2019 17:49 (five years ago) link

a foodie place in my town used to serve them roasted in escarole wraps, with cashews, thick bacon bits, and a vinegar/mustard sauce, so good.

Emperor Tonetta Ketchup (sleeve), Saturday, 11 May 2019 19:03 (five years ago) link

All these sprouts ideas sound so good. I’m currently trying to figure out my new (first attempt) dog food cooking routine. The people food is gonna have to wait a minute.
