Mangosteen ice cream is good, but pretty impractical to make. And expensive.

My supermarket must've had an overload of them the other day though, they were selling for $1 per half kilo. Never seen them that cheap.

After mentioning it the other day, I’ve had mad cravings.

So for dinner I had a PB n J sandwich, crusts cut off, whole meal bread and a tall glass of cold milk.

It was delicious. If you look closely, you might spot one of the spuds in the bottom, wrapped in foil, getting a slight crisp on. The skewers are for tomorrow if we go fishing.. snacks....we're not going ....

That looks fucking fantastic Led.

Wish I could grill out. Unfortunately, impossible here.

Beef! It's what's for dinner.

Reverse seared, as discussed in another thread here. An 1 1/2" thick fillet. Too much cow. Almost.

Image

Sliced for serving.

Image

Sorry, not into artistic plating or anything, but it was fucking delicious and pretty much fork tender medium rare.

Paired with a garden salad with home grown tomatoes from a buddy's garden. Not particularly worthy of a picture, but decent.

Thanks!

It's almost impossible to fuck it up if you do the reverse sear way of cooking the meat - way more forgiving than any other method I've used. You mostly cook it in the oven first and finish in a cast iron pan to sear. Takes longer - maybe 45 minutes all in, but it's incredibly reliable and takes very little actual effort - probably five minutes of actual work if that. Not much smoke either. If you're cooking in a small indoor kitchen in an apartment, it's tough to beat. I'm having a hard time remembering who posted that thread, but I owe them a million thanks. My cooking skills are not terribly strong, so it's nice to have a dish that I can make pretty well consistently.

ETA, it was Higgs (Thanks!): The thread that inspired this

The article that explains everything about it

Apparently £4.95 for broccoli is a rip off.

Fucks sake, I have my own money, why didn’t I just order it ??

That looks tasty, gnd.

Last night at work the menu said eggplant parmigiana. It looked like dry slices if eggplant with some tomato paste smeared on top, but it actually tasted pretty good. I also had a bunch of turnips (just cut into cubes a boiled) and 4 pierogies.

It was awesome, but there was enough for about three people there. She ended up taking half of it home. This place is a bit on the pricey side by our standards, but the view over the water is great and the food is outstanding.

Actually, Bristol, Rhode Island (d'oh!). We cross over state lines so often when we're around there, I get confused sometimes (not hard for me to do). It's a place called the Lobster Pot.

I think they were beets. I didn't like them and didn't eat them. The smoked duck was very good though and it had some wasabi aoli (or something) with it that was great. The salad and the garlic bread and the entire steak dinner (minus the gravy, which I scraped off) were all really good too.

I had always heard of scrod as young cod, but it seems by definition it can also be young haddock.

Yum, cuch. Maybe a bit of curry paste would have made it perfect?

I grilled a salmon filet with some garlic and soy. Made mashed potatoes (with my garden spuds) and sauteed heaps of swiss chard and kale (with garlic and soy). A salad caprese on the side (garden tomatoes and basil).
