Detouring OT (temporarily), there's a Canadian show on The Food Network called Glutton for Punishment. In a recent episode, the host went to Ireland to either prove or disprove the urban legend of "The Guinness Diet". Legend has it that Guinness has all the nutrients you need to survive - nothing else is necessary. Under a doctor's supervision (who thought it was a mistake), the host tried to live on nothing but Guinness for five days. Friends tried to tempt him with all sorts of food, but he was determined to try and go a full five days without touching anything else but Guinness - and also win a friendly wager in the process.

How did he do?

Warning, Spoiler:
He made it - barely.


Veering back on-topic, yesterday I made a sauteed chicken breast fillet coated with salt, fresh black pepper and basil. Served this up with a heapin' helpin' of thin spaghetti in garlic and oil (which also includes parsley, black pepper, a little chicken broth and a pinch or two of Italian seasoning).

True comfort food. ;\)

My belly's been really cooperating with me lately, so I tempted fate a bit tonight. We had nice fresh cavatelli with broccoli rabe, hot sausage and sun dried tomatoes and a nice garden salad with crumbled feta cheese and Greek olives. For dessert, I just cut up some honeydew melon, but to be honest, it wasn't so sweet. But the pasta was perfetto.

My mother was very proud of tonight's dinner. She bought two steaks that were on sale for $2.99/lb. However, when she looked at them, she realized that they had set the machine for $.0299, so she got two steaks for a nickel. I'm not even sure what cut they were, but they were pretty tasty after a nice marinade of wine and soy sauce. We had some rice and fresh broccoli along with her 5 cent steaks.

I went to the butcher this afternoon and had him cut up a Perdue oven stuffer roaster. I made a marinade of teriyaki sauce, honey, garlic powder and sesame seeds. I marinated the oven stuffer in the sauce for about 3 hours.

Then I fired up the BBQ until it was piping hot. I lowered down the flame and slow cooked the oven stuffer pieces, turning the pieces every 10 minutes or so, for about an hour. Golden brown delicious.

A side of chopped spinach sauteed in olive oil and fresh garlic, some boiled rice, and a nice iceberg lettuce and tomato salad rounded off the meal nicely.



Don Cardi cool

You sure did it the right way, DC. Chicken needs to be slow-cooked on the grill, or it just dries out. Mr. Babe likes to put the rotisserie on the grill and cook the chicken whole. YUM.

I never tried sesame seeds in my marinade. I'll have to give it a shot. Sounds delicious!

My gourmet dinner tonight consisted of Chicken Fettuccini w/ Broccoli and later a bowl of Sesame Teriyaki Noodles



I studied Italian for 2 semesters. Not once was a "C" pronounced as a "G", and never was a trailing "I" ignored! And I'm from Jersey! tongue lol

Those steaks are bound to be good and tender tonight, klyd.


The steaks were tender...though I wouldn't know. My sons had them Monday for dinner before I got home. \:\(

Everything was on hold for Sunday. Much to my dismay, the Steeler game was not broadcast locally because FOX had the game and the Eagles were on. I took the family to a nearby bar/restaurant with a million tvs to see the game. The place was a sea of black and gold, but we got a table late in the second quarter, so we had wings and burgers.

I am obviously, quite curious.

A few years back, I spent the better part of a month working on a chicken curry recipe. The magnificent aroma lingered on the walls for weeks.

I know, I'm quite strange that way. ;\)

This'll be an interesting food diary down the line... almost makes me wanna eat better to lessen the embarrassment! lol

Tonight I went out, on the way home from my class... had some pretty decent lamb shanks (a bit fatty, but otherwise pretty good) over garlic mashed potatoes (TOO much garlic - and coming from ME, the guy who likes to chomp on a raw garlic clove now and then, that means WAY too much garlic somehow!! \:o ) and gravy... w/ a seafood "bisque" starter... not bad for $12.95 tho... ;\)

I made country style ribs on the grill. Damn they were good, although a bit crisp. Or as my dad would have said, Seared on the outside and juicy on the inside - his standard excuse for burning food on the grill.

Don't you hate it when you have say, leftover BBQ chicken, but....thrre is only one piece left. Not enough to fill me up. \:\/ I had that and a salad but didn't feel satisfied and didn't feel like cooking. So, I had a slice of bread with PB&J. I like PBJ but it didn't quite finish off my dinner. Such dilemmas. \:D

There are just a few things I dislike in the food department, and I must say curry is one of them. And the fact that my apartment becomes consumed by that smell from my neighbors isn't helping.... \:\/

Went to the Bonefish Grill in Pinebrook, NJ, with Justin as I had to meet him for workstuff. Never been to one, but it was very good!

Started with an Espresso Martini with apps of Calamari (w/ marinara and Thai sweet hot sauces) and Fried Oysters. Then a glass of Ecco Domani Chianti with my Grilled Salmon (w/ the Pan Asian sauce) w/ steamed veggies. Very good for a chain! Anyone else been to one of these?

I really like calamari. I love deep fried. However, for those who cook it, how do you prepare it? I've cooked it myself flouring and frying it with potatoes. It's fantastic. It's a big pain in the neck to clean though. \:\/

Icelandic Arctic Charr -- as Geoff said, fried oysters and calamari... if you love salmon you will like this fish I never had before and was virtually uknown in the US 10 years ago. Now its still not very well known but not always from iceland, but farm raised in canada, USA... it was good, no doubt, but not up to the marketing hype of this new chain which is small, but sure to grow.

As for the Bonefish Martini -- Love champagne, love Stoli, love Cranberry, not sure I like all 3 in a "martini"... tasted more like just champagne with the reddish look to imply there was cranberry in it... no complaints, just nothing exciting... I was driving so I only had time to sample one martini and one glass of wine...

More interesting was a wedding I was at on Sunday... at least $150k -- cocktail hour food included rabbit (sicilian specialty), mini rice balls, "macaroni pie", and my favorite, fried whole sardines... gotta be real italian (european at the least) to love this stuff... too bad geoff cut out before the party began lol, be he does get "Hero of the Month Award" but thats another topic for another forum lol.

JR! Where have you been? Nice to see you around again.

I am not a big fish fan. I love shellfish, but not fish fish, if that makes sense.

TIS, the only way I've ever prepared calamari is to put it in tomato sauce when I make a fish sauce for Christmas Eve. I have an excellent fish store that sells their calamari pre-cleaned. Of course, that's still not good enough for my mom, who will insist on cleaning it even further.

Hi! Sorry to not be on here more often, killer busy season but its winding down and I hope to have more time for leisure... In any case, you are right, liking one type of fish is as varied as liking steak but not pork -- in fact, there are probably more varieties of fish/seafood than of land animals... I too love shellfish more than fish fish... squid is an isiplopod, so its not a fish or a shellfish, its something closer to octopus if anything... for thos who do like exotic and game meats, check out exoticmeats.com, never bought from them before, but anxious to, as soon as they get the bugs out of their site and i can finally order! \:\)

Or maybe Andrew Zimmern! This sounds like just the kind of thing he scarfs down on Bizarre Foods \:D

As for my dinner tonight: Linguine Carbonara. Homemade, of course. One of my signature dishes.

Absolutely not at all healthy, but what the hell - I'm worth it.

We went out to dinner tonight. Why is it so difficult to get beef cooked correctly? We ordered two prime rib dinners, one rare and one medium rare. They came out cooked properly, but they were ice cold. We sent them back. In heating them, the rare became medium rare and the medium rare became medium-to-well. I refused to eat mine. They then told me those were the last two prime rib dinners that they had, so they asked if I would have a strip steak in lieu of a prime rib. Fine. Mr. Babe took the formerly rare prime rib, since it was cooked to his liking, and they took the other one away. Now, Mr. Babe has his dinner and I have a glass of water. Finally, mine came, and it was cooked properly, but it had an immense nerve running through the middle of it, although I guess that wasn't their fault. At least they took it off the bill.

Needless to say, it was not quite the pleasant dining experience that we were hoping for.
