    • Well, I grew up with 2 spices - black pepper and cayenne, and two herbs: dill and parsley. oh, and bay leaf. So, now, I compensate! I really love oriental spices and flavors in their unspoiled, pure way!

        Curry rules. There are so many types too! I'm a huge fan of Thai Green curry - slow roating stew beef in the crock pot with that, a couple small potatoes, coconut milk, onion and chiles..... then about an hour from serving I throw in green peppers and mushrooms. YUM!

        But I digress..... last night I cooked a large diced up chicken breast in bacon grease with zucchini, onion and mushrooms..... with crushed pepper and tons of BBQ rub. It was killer. Is that more your speed? haha

          • After trying the mozzarella-strawberry-mint-balsamic salad I started thinking: What other savory things can I throw fruit into and make delicious?" The other day I made a hot scallop and blueberry 'salad' of sorts. It's a very small portion, but just what I wanted at the time.

            Fry one piece of bacon in a pan
            add 2 tbsp butter (this is really vague, I just hacked off a great big hunk from the stick, maybe about 1/3)
            When butter stops foaming add thawed bay scallops
            Cook until scallops are opaque.
            At the end drizzle in some balsamic vinegar and cook for another couple minutes until thick.
            Pour over a handfull of blueberries and crumble bacon on the whole thing. Mix up so the sauce gets on everything.

              ok this sounds soooo good and I typically do not like scallops. I think I have never had them made correctly. This sounds correct!

              • Scallops need very little cooking - they become rubber otherwise. Foaming up some butter and chucking in the scallops is just right - flip them after 30 seconds and baste them with the butter. Another 30 seconds and done. Okay, they'll be a little rare, but that is seriously good for scallops.

                Done right, they're wonderful. Done anything other than right, which takes in the whole spectrum of not quite right all the way through to wrong, they're awful! Same with squid, same with mussels and clams IMO.

                • Actually, had time to make that meatloaf as a meatloaf. I made it with 2 lbs beef - it filled up the pan nicely & I sprinkled some thinly sliced almonds on top for crunchies. I also grated apple, and zooped spices, onions and egg in the MB blender so there are no onion pieces (I have a 5 yo). If it was just hubby and me, I would have used the liquid from the meatloaf to make a quick sauce from that, chilli paste and cocnut milk. But I was afraid that too much exotoc smells - and the kiddo won't even approach the table. Kiddo ate a half-slice, without much complaining.

                    The only way I like my squid is lightly deep-fried in chili-infused oil (with NO batter!). Any other ideas? I really do not like coatings of any kind, that's why I usually despise deep-fried food.

                    • I just posted a new recipe for Barbacoa Beef that I absolutely love. The good thing about this recipe is you can buy one of those enormous beef rounds from Costco (or similar) at a fairly low cost, cook it up and have a ton of leftovers. It's pretty spicy because of the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce so beware. But my family loved it and my husband was even eating it cold. I'm making a second batch - the full 12 pounds - in preparation for hurricane Irene. Wouldn't want to run out of beef now would I?

                          • I'm making a Cottage Pie tonight - it will have a cauliflower topping. You guys know I'm happy with dairy, so there's be a good handful of grated cheese on top, too.

                            I made Ackee and Saltfish last night - turned out really good! I've only made this once before, maybe three years ago, so ... we'll call it "something new".

                            I'm not sure that much salt is paleo, the salt residual in the fish, but it was bloomin' good. We both thought it very salty, but we've not been adding much, if any, salt to ... well ... anything nowadays.

                              One that "the boss" truly enjoyed and requested that I do again ... with cauliflower rather than potato! Result
