Hey everybody...since there is so much discussion about food lets all share recipes. Please no Betty Crocker, we should attempt to share and discuss our most original, creative or different dishes. Anything from Loco-moco's to Shrimp curry and beyond can be placed.

Loco Moco-
Mmmmm... secret Kauai breakfast tradition. Perfect Kill you or cure you hangover remedy.


1cup steamed rice
1 hamburger patty
1/2cup Brown gravy
2 over easy eggs

- rice on Bottom, then hamburger patty, with the eggs layed on top, Smothered with gravey.


Shrimp Curry (Pakistani style)

1/2lb shrimp (small or medium)
2 lb Roma Tomatoes
1 small yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1 inch ginger
1 shallow tbs ground cumin
1 shallow tbs ground Corriander
1+1/2 tbs ground red chile
1/4 tsp Tumeric
Salt to tast (as with any curry lots of salt is good)
garnish with Cillantro (optional)

Serve over steamed rice - Throw choped cillantro stalks, some chopped veggies, salt, tsp oil, and 1/4 tsp tumeric in with your rice (right berfor you start steaming it) for a super tasty version.

in medium-high wok or other high sided pan toss in oil, let heat. Throw in chopped garlic, ginger and onion. Stir fry untill fragrant and onions start glazing. Toss in shrimp and fry arround for about 1 minute max, add choped tomatoes, cumin, corriander, red chile, tumeric and salt. Reduce heat to medium until tomatoes start to break down. Then reduce to a simmer, cover (stiring occasionally) for 15 minutes.

I'll leave it to an administrater to move this to off-topic. In the mean time, I'll interpret this to be a place to share recipes. Here's a good one with one (1) ingrediant and one (1) instruction but boy is it yummy!!!


Balsalmic syrup:

1 16 oz. bottle of balsalmic vinegar

Boil and stir until it is condensed to 4 oz.

Okay, it deserves a little more discourse than then that. Basically cook over a medium or low flame until it is one quarter of the original volume. When it bubbles stir carefully as you don't want it to burn. As it condenses the texture will become thick and syrupy and the bubbles will become perl like. Once done your kitchen will smell like a tannery but it'll be worth it. It's sweet tangy and rich and goes deliciously as a sauce or marinade for red meat especially lamb. I like to saute lamb cubes with garlic, red onions, and habanero or other piquant pepper and add the syrup at the last minute. I want to try sauteing the the onions, garlic, and pepper than adding vinegar and making the syrup but I haven't tried that yet.

I also like to pour this syrup very lightly on french vanilla ice cream, but then again I'm a weirdo.

The syrup can be refridgerated and lasts for weeks. If you condense it completely though, it is very thick and can be solid when chilled. (Same texture as Caramel sauce.)

Mmmmm... I love food.
Since it's what I'm eating right now, let me give a few tips on making Kraft's box of creamy Mac&Cheese (the original version. The four cheese chafes my style).
It's one of my faves, and I've gotten pretty good at making it.
Rule 1: No measuring! Get a big saucepan and fill it halfway or so, maybe a little more (don't want it spilling over, do you?). Don't use a timer, either (timers are for bakers and wussie babies, not macaroniholics). The macaroni is done only when you pull it out of the water and can squish it a little bit with your finger.
Rule 2: No salt! Whoever decided that salt is a good idea in this dish is really freakin' stupid!! My mother and sisters always put salt in the water before boiling it when I was growing up, and (surprise!) the final product always tasted of salt.
New directions: Boil the water at high heat. Turn to 3/4 heat and add macaroni (keep it at a slow boil). Stir as often as you can, thinking happy thoughts (a positive attitude is an essential ingredient in all food!). The macaroni will start to turn a little pale as it gets close to being done; with experience, you can tell its doneness just by the feel of it when you stir it; the macaroni won't bump into the spoon with as much force, for example, and it feels fairly smooth (but be careful not to let it sit too long or it'll be macaroni soup). Once you start to see little blotches of white in the macaroni, which should have grown a bit by this point, check it every few minutes until it reaches a good texture for you. Just a minute or so before you remove it from heat, put the cheese packet in the pan with everything to warm it up so that it stirs in more smoothly.
That's it! That's all there is to it: my secrets for perfect macaroni. My family says I make it better than anyone else (probably because they use SALT half the time!), even though there's no special ingredients.

Finally: No matter what the box tells you, one box makes approximately one adult-sized serving, unless you serve it with other food (I suggest chicken nuggets or hot dogs). I usually don't go to the trouble, so one box makes a fair meal, depending on how much you usually eat and how much you like it. I believe that the appropriate wine to serve with this meal is any.

Some have questioned what this thread is doing on an Anime board. My answer is that food can enhance the Viewing of Anime. Who doesnt like to sit down on a saturday morning and watch anime while eating a big hot bowl or Ramen. Maybe some of you have seen people eating little balls of fried stuff on tooth-pics in your favorite series. Did you know that those little balls were most likely Takoyaki tako = ocopus and yaki roughly equals fry(I think). You can make tako yaki pretty easily yourself. Find your nearest well stocked grocery store or Fish Monger and pick up:

50 grams boiled Octopus, 50 grams cabbage, 30 grams green onion, pickled ginger, tenkasu, salad oil, 250 grams wheet flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 2 1/2 eggs, 800cc niban (#2) dashi.

Then you will need a pan for the molding into balls. you can get them at many asian grocery stores and Indian stores have a very similar pan. Basically it needs to be a pan with little round impressions on it.

Cut octopus into bite size pieces. Cut cabbage, green onion and pickeled ginger into migingiri (mince). Beat egg, added with dashi. Add flour, baking powder and salt, mix lightly for making batter. Heat and oil takoyaki plate well. Pour batter into molds on hot plate and put octopus, cabbage, green onion, pickled ginger and tenkasu on each top. Heat a while. When batter on the edge of the molds become cooked, gather batter outside of the molds into the center together with fillngs. Use senmaidoushi (skewer) to gather. When batter browns turn over to form balls. Continue to heat while turning it over and over until balls become evenly browned and well cooked inside.

Now you can serve takoyaki to your friends while you watch Ranma & 1/2. I dont know why but it really seems to go well with that series!

The dirty little secret is that it's quite easy to make delicious mac and cheese from scratch! This recipe is for a baked macaroni & cheese, but I always just eat/serve it without the baking part. It's yummy!

1 pound macaroni (elbows, penne, etc.)
4 cups milk
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (or olive oil)
6 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste (usually there's enough saltiness in the cheese)
12 ounces Gruyere cheese, grated (or half Gruyere and half cheddar)

That's for a whole recipe but it's really easy to make a half or quarter recipe!

First cook the pasta and grate the cheese.

Then you warm up a big saucepan or pot. You put the butter or oil in. Add the flour, paprika and pepper/salt to that and stir it around until you have a roux or paste.

Add the milk to the roux mixture (I usually don't need the whole 4 cups of milk... often 3 cups is enough) and heat, stirring constantly to dissolve the roux and keep the milk from burning.

When the milk mixture thickens a bit, add the macaroni and keep stirring. When the sauce and pasta are thoroughly heated, and the whole mixture has thickened a bit, add the cheese and stir the whole thing again until the grated cheese melts and mixes evenly in.

Here's the step that I skip. You can transfer the mac&cheese to a flame-proof casserole and bake it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, finishing it up under broil to brown the top a bit. You can reserve some of the grated cheese for this step, too. Just sprinkle it evenly over the top of the casserole (add some Parmesan cheese here, too, if you want) so the baking melts the cheese into a crust over the top. But who can wait 20 minutes for the whole thing to bake? Just ladle the unbaked mac&cheese on a plate and enjoy!

If you get good at making the roux, you won't even have to measure ingredients for this thing anymore! It's really easy and tough to screw up!

Well, I suppose *something* has to be able to enhance it.

Woozy immediatly ducks the flaming projectiles thrown his way. "Hey, it was a joke" he cries cowering behind a rock.

Woozy, don't you make me use the secret techniques of the Ross Ryooriryu. I don't know any dishes for woozy meat, but I'm sure I can think of something!

Woozy jerky is quite tasty if you have the jaws for it. It's very well liked among woozies but considered taboo despite the fact that everyone eats it.

There's also inflamed woozy. This dish is a traditional holiday dish in our ancient culture. On our annual holiday Ayingpaiyette Day a community will choose the woozy who has performed the worst transgressions over the year, force feed him balsalmic vinegar and lock him in an enclosed stable. Then the village children take turns tossing in honey-bee hives at the imprisonned woozy while shouting "Krizzle Kroo!". The bees get riled and start stinging the woozy which causes muscles spasms which act as a cure and flavoring to the muscles. The woozy eventually gets angry and his eyes flash fire and he sets the stable on fire and the honey-coated woozy and the bees are roasted alive. Then the village engages in the feast. Yummy. Children love it because they get to embrace their inner psycopaths. Unfortunately, this led to the downfall of woozy societies as victims started to be chosen by how young and muscular they were rather than the intended just how annoyingly disliked they were. They young and muscular were, of course, the best and the brightest, and pretty soon only the corrupt and depraved woozy were left. Modern Ayingpaiyette Day festivities involve a synthetic woozy made of tofu blocks and smoked with garbonzos and maple syrup (honey bees and honey are sacred to modern society and hard to come by) and needless to say it is not the same. However in the back country illegal underground inflamed woozy roasts still occur and would be well worth visiting if it weren't for the catch-22 that the woozies they choose are always outsiders.

Lately, I've been eating ramen with anemone with my anime. Also, spicy tuna with Jalapeno hot sauce with my hentai. And sugary shoju for shoujo.

Try saying all that ten times fast.

For Thanksgiving, my turkey day blessing is going to be "Thunderbirds are go!" and then I'll dive in. I mean, what are the odds of anybody at the table getting the reference, the pun, and having the joy of once again taking my place as the weird one in the family?

Hey, I have an idea! Why don't we GreenCine members get together for holiday meals! I could invite you to my Ayingpaiyette Day feast where I'll be doing a variation of inflamed woozy.

I hope jross can make it. Mmmmm. Inflamed woozy stand-in. Mmmm.

Either my next place of residence will be the same place. Or smaller, I believe.

I may have a little trouble securing a mortgage. Oddly enough they like you to have a job, a life, a history more than one month of existence, a name with at least one capital letter (and two words preferable), before they decide to give you $400,000.

Well, that's dumb, who made up that rule?

Um, I can at least say that I don't particularly resemble my icon... but then do I take that as a compliment? Maybe you're just making fun of my icon in a sneaky way!

Still, any place with free food is where I'm at! Count me in!
