    Irene's is damn good Italian. Killer Po Boys (back of some bar) is good food for after a night of drinking.

    came across some nice looking Chilean Sea Bass today so made a ceviche with three types of heirloom tomatoes (brandywine, persimmon, and striped marvel),red onion, garlic, olives, avocado, and diced habaneros.

    How did you like Shaya? It is hard for a restaurant that is awarded best new chef and restaurant to meet expectations, but I've been a handful of times and it is always absolutely incredible. The hummus with lamb and fried chickpeas may be the best appetizer in the whole world.

    Couldn't get in. Had a great meal at Brennan's instead. Did their beef tartare as a starter and then had seared tuna with black eyed peas and did the bananas foster for dessert. Wasn't super expensive either, only like $200 or so for 3 of us.

    Hash consisted of:

    -Sweet potato
    -Shallot
    -Brussels
    -Mushrooms
    -Spinach

    Set my oven to 375 degrees and took out my cast iron. Seasoned the sweet potato, shallot, and brussels with S&P, garlic powder, paprika, rosemary, a touch of lemon juice, and olive oil. All of that is tossed together in the cast iron and started roasting it off. After about 15 minutes of roasting, I threw in some sliced mushrooms and roughly chopped spinach and gave the mixture a good stir to coat the mushrooms and spinach. Pop back in the oven for another 10 minutes or so and then it's ready to go.

    Typically I will start most of my hashes with sweet potatoes and shallot and then just see what other veggies I have lying around (brussels, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, black beans, chiles in adobo sauce, spinach, kale, etc.). Serves as a good way to clear out the pantry or fridge prior to restocking.

    Made a Mac n cheese with butternut squash and thyme. Used boars head smoked Gruyere and sharp cheddar. Was pretty good but probably needed a little more salt to balance the sweetness of the squash.

    NY strip and grilled artichoke. Steak was prepared sous vide and finished on the grill, and the artichoke was parboiled before finishing on the grill, as well.

    Pics are always huge when I post from mobile, but nailed this flank steak with the Anova tonight.

    Marinated and cooked it in a brown sugar, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic mixture before searing in cast iron. 131 degrees for 2 hours.

    No pictures (bc who wants to see how sausage is made?), but had my first attempt at making sausage at home. Bought myself a stand mixer and all the fun attachments for my birthday and finally had time to give it a go yesterday. Did hot Italian and jalapeño chicken. then cooked them sous vide 150 for an hour and finished them on the grill.

    They turned out really good, I'm just not sure how often I'll do this going forward. It would be fun to play around with some flavors I can't normally get at the market, but we'll see. I'm not yet convinced the extra effort is worth it at this point. Love the meat grinder addition for homemade burgers and stuff.

    All in all, a fun little Sunday

    Tried to do something a bit out of the box. Braised, then grilled octopus, green chile sauce, Mediterranean couscous salad. It was pretty good. Not the best thing I've made, not the best presentation, but happy with trying something a little different.

    i think seared ahi tuna is my favorite thing to cook right now. came home and made ahi tuna, seared brussells, and lime rice for dinner in about ~15 minutes yesterday. can't beat that for a good meal. tried a different route with the tuna + brussells using balsamic instead of soy. sweeter taste was a good change up. probably gonna do this meal 2x a week for a while since it's quick and a place on my way home has 2 ~8oz filets for $8. /diary

    usually rub in soy, pepper and garlic. mix another soy/garlic deal in a little measuring cup. pan on reverse-sear steak temperature w/ grapeseed oil. about 60-75 seconds a side basting one time on each side with the soy/garlic.

    tried doing peppercorns in the skillet prior to cooking once and burnt the shit out of them and it was not... great. haven't tried that again. I know you can roll them in sesame seeds before cooking too but I fear change / "if it ain't broke."

    :justsayin:

    I do plan on doing a little avocado/lime/ginger glaze next time I cook it for a date and not quickdraw dinner. This looks delicious http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/...-with-avocado-soy-ginger-and-lime-recipe.html

    Ok food cunts, got a question: when you cook with coffee grounds do they a) need to be decaf and b) need to be grounds that were used first to make coffee. My gf is on this paleo kick and got a bunch of new cookbooks. Well she's making the shit yesterday and I just let her be, so today I ask her about the fajita stuff she made. It's coffee ground fajitas. Ok, whatever. Then I think, wait a second. This shit is covered in coffee grounds. Isn't that going to basically be like straight up eating a shit ton of coffee beans? So I ask her and she can't remember if it was decaf or not so I potentially have the equivalent of meth fajitas in my fridge. Is this an actual thing or am I over thinking it?

    nope. read "coffee ground fajitas" and that exact same thing went through my head. don't have an answer to any of your questions but you're not over thinking anything those thoughts are normal AF

    Been on the Google and it looks like they should have been used grounds that you dry out and then use. I think she dumped a whole can of caffinated coffee grounds in there because I found the empty can in the trash. Of course, her being a woman and never wrong, she informs me she ate them for lunch and feels fine. Gonna check her pupils when I get home and see if she's crawling around the place like Jesse later.

    I imagine the steak is seasoned with a rub that contains ground coffee. if that's the case then it's like 1 or 2 tsp ground coffee in the entire rub, so it's not as if she slices the meat and then rolls each piece in ground coffee or something. Unless she just didn't make it right?
