  • Cori, thanks for the Skordalia link. Sounds awesome.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    • Skordalia sounds like it could be good with a cubic shit ton more garlic. 1 lb potato and a head of garlic and we'd be talking.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      • There's a Tapas place I frequent that has beet skordalia - I'm assuming it's a similar recipe, but with beets instead of potatoes... YUM!

        The ease of making infused oils at home totally led me to wonder why tf anyone would buy that product... but hey, that's just me...

        Oh, and FWIW, those infusions will be fine for quite awhile in the fridge... but I'm one of those nutty "look (/smell/taste) at what's in front of you instead of going by an arbitrary number" types... I know, I know, you can't see/smell/taste botulism... shhh!

        • I saw one of those "food" trailers today; this one sells cupcakes. On the side, it said "A portion of our profits goes to educate children about the dangers of drug and alcohol addiction". On the front, at the top of the open-hours sign, it said, "Get your sugar fix!"

          *facepalm*

          I'll try to get a picture the next time I see it.

            That's how I do it... I like it garlic-HOT!

            But not how I intro it to raw garlic noobs/lightweights.

            • If y'all ever have the chance to go to the Gilroy Garlic Festival, it's a hoot. Very consumerist, but everything is garlic. They even have garlic ice cream (much better than it sounds) and garlic wine (didn't try that). Your body and arm pits (which I realize are part of your body) will ooze garlic for days.

                Well you could see that as part of the "education"...

                I once went to a garlic festival on the Isle of Wight. The garlic and honey ice-cream was delicious; the garlic beer was a bit odd.

                • Swung by the grocery store to grab an avocado and a 90% chocolate bar while out and about today. Waiting on the cashier, I mentally inventoried everything the guy behind me put on the checkout belt as it came out of his basket:

                  One of those little boxes of cereal variety packs
                  Box of Pop Tarts
                  Bag of hoagie buns
                  Bag of dinner rolls
                  2 boxes mac and cheese
                  1 package of crappy roast beef

                  Ew.

                  • I have a coworker who constantly eats candy, but "it's ok, because it's fat-free", and she "only eats fat-free candy".

                      Hah we had our company holiday party there this past Christmas, and a coworker and I saw those prominently labeled corn-fed steaks. We turned to each other and went "They're advertising it like that's a good thing?"

                        • Was at a lunch meeting (at a hospital, with a bunch of oncologists) and lunch is provided by one of the drug reps. All food was provided in the industrial size aluminum containers.

                          Salad with caesar dressing, literally carpeted in croutons.
                          sliced white italian bread
                          baked ziti type pasta (for the vegetarians!!)
                          chicken tenders breaded, and then coated in some disgusting sauce
                          ravioli
                          choc chip cookies
                          Choice of soda: coke, diet coke, or fresca.


                          Cringe worthy. AFter flicking off the upteen croutons, I ate the salad (the lettuce was good) and tried a bit of the chicken after scraping off the coating. Bleck! Poor fat free things had been drowned in a 'duck sauce' type tasting thing.

                          Have some bread with your bread, pasta, bread, and HFCS.

                              Nothing good ever came from an industrial size aluminum container.

                              I also don't understand the appeal of fried chicken doused in sauce. Fried chicken is actually pretty damn good, gluten be damned. Why you need to douse it in sauce is beyond me, unless of course it is processed to hell chicken product that has been fried.

                                You get what you pay for. That's what they paid for and that's what they got. If money was no object, I'm sure I could source out whatever quality of food I wanted to provide to my guests.
