    Official VHLinks "Food and more" thread...

    We used to have a thread called "Hey Good Looking, Whatch Got Cooking" at the old site.
    My dearest friend TopTimi and I, when we get together...always wind up talking about food.

    And we agreed about the concept of this thread.

    We know there are many of us that cook, yet we don't believe this should be a standard "recipe-thread". Feel free to give reviews of joints you ate at, ask advice you need when doing a project (what kind of vegetable or wine goes with...), and yes...include memories and what I call "food-directions".

    I speak frankly about how I do shit...there (IMO) should not be any "mystery" about cooking, as the more that try it will probably enjoy it, so why put 'em off in the first place with complicated terms?

    To get things started, here is an easy dish...and cheap, too.

    Awesome Mushroom Soup

    1 can Mushroom soup (the type you add water to, around 75 cents)
    1 small can of mushroom pieces
    3/4 soup can of milk
    (If you wanna add some chopped up onions, that's cool, yet make 'em small )
    1/2 stick of butter or marg.
    1/2 cup French's "French Fried Onions"
    Grated Parmesian cheese (even the stuff in the green can)


    Pour first 3 into a saucepan over medium heat. (If you wanna chop up the canned 'shrooms, do it)

    Cut up the butter, add in and keep stirring.

    Reduce heat (as low as it goes), stir every 10 minutes, so it don't stick.

    Ten minutes before serving, kick up the heat to a steady, rolling boil.

    Remove from heat, let it sit.

    Get some cups, ladle in the soup. Add a small handful of the dried onions, then layer the cheese over it.

    Folk can add their own pepper/salt.

    Serve it with sliced bread and butter, or w/patty-melts (amazing for dipping) like I do.

    Best of luck to all who enter here...eat well.

    Okay, I need some advice, and this may seem painfully sad, but I want to know how to make refried beans. I do love me some frijoles.

    The crap they sell in cans doesn't qualify. Refried beans, considered a side item at most Americanized Mexican joints, are gooood. Comfort food, I'd say.

    So, help me out here. I'm not even sure of the right bean...pintos?

    My gut thanks you in advance.

    Macaroni A La Zeo:

    Boil water in a sauce pan
    Open box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese
    Put noodles in water
    When noodles are done cooking, drain out water
    Add Butter, cheese mix and milk to noodles.
    Stir until noodles are coated with cheese.
    Serve.

    That is the extent of my cooking! When my new kitchen gets installed (Only 3 more weeks until they start! ) Then I will start cooking more stuff. Right now it is hard to cook when your 50 year old oven doesn't work.

    Yup, canned beans ain't it.

    You are correct, one starts with pinto beans (the dried ones). Here's an easy start, later on you can flavor 'em the wat you like...


    1 package of dry pinto beans
    olive oil
    3-4 strips of bacon
    2-3 cloves finely minced garlic
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    dash italian seasoning


    Soak the beans overnight in a pot, about an inch or so covering 'em in water.

    Next day, drain them, add enough hot water to cover 'em again, then bring to a steady boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about an hour until soft.

    Remove from heat, and mush them with a potato masher or a big spoon.

    In another pan, heat some olive oil, and fry up the bacon. Remove the bacon, at a low heat add the garlic and chili powder.

    To this, add the beans, stirring and adding a little bit of water do they don't dry completely out, you are looking to create a paste here.

    After about 1-2 minutes, add the italian seasoning, let cool.

    As I said, how you season 'em is up to you, yet this is a pretty decent tasting way to get you started.

    The metric system never caught on in America (maybe we are simply too daft), so I'll try to keep measurements easy, such as a dash or spoonful.


    Patty-Melts are what you make when you run out of hamburger buns, yet you do have bread and cheese...

    Take a cooked cheeseburger, toast 2 slices of bread.
    Place cheese on both slices of bread, put the burger between 'em, then simply fry the whole thing in an oiled frying pan, browning the bread and melting the cheese (while flattening the hell out of it with a spoon or spatula).

    To serve, slice it in half, great for dipping in soups like tomato or mushroom!

    If you want to see heaven a little quicker, add some sliced swiss, cheddar, jaelepeno jack or american cheese, maple syrup and a side order of some buttered grits to this.

    Your death will be slow, but what a way to go!

    You know this is a very useful thread! I am a father of three and we are always on the run. It would be really helpful to have different, yet simple recipes to use. I do a lot of things like hashbrown casserole, taco bakes, hamburger helpers, etc...

    If there were a standard size for these recipes, so we could print them that would be cool, or we could copy and paste. anyhow, I will try to wrangle some of mine up and post 'em here soon.

    GO DOLPHINS!!!

    You as excited about this year as I am chef? I figure this year will be major rebuilding and foundation laying and look out next year!

    Honestly Ex, I'm all about the budget...the food dollar can and will go far, if one thinks ahead.

    For instance, NEVER go to the supermarket to purchase stuff for ONE meal, as it's a waste of gas for one thing.
    Plus you end up spending too much.
    Coupons are great, yet they seldom arrive when you need 'em, so clip ahead of time (weeks in advance) as they usually last for a couple of months (check the exp. dates).

    "Day old" bread stores can save you a shitload.

    Fast food will feed the family, yet you will spend your cash "fast", also...money that could be used on beer!



    And yes, I feel a faint optimism about the Dolphins...

    Okay all! Howdy and glad there is some good grub in our links!!

    Here is a great one for Smoked Salmon. I have many different ways to do this, but here is a basic one that will make you a champ.

    Filiet boneless cut of fresh salmon. If fresh is not available, hit Costco for a nice farmed salmon for around $4.00 lb.

    Marinate in PURE Maple syrup, dill and a spice of your choosing for at least 12 hours...24 is all the better, but not too much more.

    Place fish on rack and sprinke with ginger powder and sesame seeds.

    Smoke for 1-2 hours depending in thickness. Don't worry, testing is the fun part as well.

    When done, eat whole or on good cracker with nice ht sauece. I suggest "Melinda's" for great flavor but not too overpowering.


    I'll have more salmon ideas with a perfect smoked cheese for accompanyment.

    Let me know,

    Cheers,

    Timi

    That sounds good! Gotta try that one.
    I take a full salmon fillet (skin on) Spice it with a little dill and lemon pepper. Mix up honey, dry mustard and soy then baste.
    Lay on NON OILED alum. foil and smoke until AT LEAST half done.
    Lay new piece of foil beside salmon, coated with oil or other.
    Lift under salmon between salmon and skin purposely leaving the skin stuck to foil.
    flip on to new foil
    scrape off all excess "brown" meat with fork (should be all pink)
    Squeeze on some fresh lemon and baste with honey mixture

    This procedure really eliminates the real "fishy taste" . I've gotten people who really don't like salmon to eat this.
