This is a perfect dish to have after a heavy Thanksgiving meal (and you can use your leftovers)…
I made a stock with a turkey leg and herrrbbs
Diced and chopped all the veggies
Added the onion and leeks to a pan with butter and oil for about 10 minutes.
Then add diced potatoes and just enough stock to cover everything. Let everything cook down til the potatoes are nice and soft and throw the mixture in a blender (sorry no pictures, I was watching the Lakers kill the Nets). After that put the soup back into the pot and add heavy cream, spices, truffle oil, chives or whatever your little heart desires to make it taste good. I added a little heavy cream for texture, salt, pepper and truffle oil…
After I grilled the corn I cut the kernels off the cob threw it in a bowl in the oven with parmesan cheese, hot sauce and butter. The dressing was made with olive oil, cilantro, lime salt/ pepper and egg yolks.
I really don’t know how to make curry but this is what happens when you mix diced boiled potatoes, cauliflower, chopped up bell pepper, onions, coriander, cumin, curry seasoning, salt, pepper, olive oil, yogurt and chiles in a pot. If computers had smell-o-vision this post wouldn’t be as boring. I’m ready for the weekend…
I first made these tacos when I came home one night from a bar and had nothing to eat. I think that’s when my culinary creativity comes out the best but usually I’ll make the same dish again sober and it definitely wouldn’t be as good as it was 4 shots and 5 cocktails under. Not the case with these tacos, after I made them that night they’ve become a staple in my diet. The best thing about these are they’re pretty healthy and for not having meat they fill you up.
- Dice up potatoes, skin on, brush with olive oil and season with salt/ pepper and whatever else you like.
- Throw em in a preheated oven 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
- While those are in the oven heat up some re-fried beans (add cheese and hot sauce if you want), chop up some cilantro and onions for garnishing and attempt to make some salsa (tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, jalapenos, lime, salt/ pepper and olive oil).
BAM! (R.I.P Billy Mays)
