    Let's Discuss Food,,,

    I can't plead sainthood when it comes to this. I like potato chips as much as most males, even though I know they're not good for one's physical well-being.

    When it comes to cooking, I use olive oil quite a bit. A favorite meal of mine is to roast some veggies in the oven, after giving them a good mix in olive oil and Lipton's Savory Herb and Garlic soup mix. (see recipe on back of box) These veggies can easily be mixed up with pasta or rice, into a fairly decent meal. But yes, I also like steak tips.

    So, what's on your plate? Any favorite receipes?

    Lots of good recipes from www.epicurious.com

    Here's one, a great Sicilian style potato salad. In addition, I add lemon juice from half a lemon, fresh basil, some black pepper and other herbs that may be at hand. It may also help that I grow my own potatoes, parsley and onions, but this should work just fine from the grocery store:

    For harmony in the home, I find that anything that my wife slaves over in the kitchen had best make it to my favorites list.

    When I cook for myself, I tend to favor various forms of Chicken (at least I know what it will taste like)

    I haven't been eating meat lately... here's a seafood recipe for those who aren't afraid of a few calories.

    75 grams (dry weight) cooked pasta, fettuccine, linguini or whatever is in the cupboard.
    2 cloves of fresh garlic.
    1/2 tsp rosemary.
    1/8 cup, fresh, chopped parsley
    2 tbsp Philadelphia Cream Cheese with chives and onions.
    3/4 cup milk or unsweetened soy milk.
    olive oil.
    4 large (2 1/2 to 3 inch diameter) scallops.

    Mince the garlic and sauté briefly with the rosemary in a litle olive oil in a small saucepan.
    Reduce heat, add the milk and cream cheese and heat to just before boiling, stirring constantly.
    Reduce heat to just warm, cover.

    In a small skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil, over med-high heat, until it just starts to smoke.
    Add the scallops and cook for no more than 1 minute, turn and cook for 1 more minute.

    Put one tablespoon of the sauce on a plate and cover with the pasta.
    Arrange the scallops on the pasta and cover with the rest of the sauce.
    Garnish with the parsley.

    Serves one... just barely.

    I've been on Nutrisystems. It's like dog food for humans. It comes in 3 varieties... pale yellow mush, red spicy mush, and green split pea soup. Oh, and there's this dehydrated hamburger patty that you pour boiling water on. That patty is the best thing in the menu. Everything is dehydrated, canned, or in a "bar".

    At first it's disorienting, because you're eating the mexicana chili delite, and you think you're eating the pot roast goulash. It all tastes the same.

    But pretty soon you're starving to death, so it really doesn't matter how gross the food is, it tastes GREAT. You start to forget about food until you're hungry enough to eat the Nutrisystems. The system works well that way.

    But* if you cheat, go out to dinner and eat real food... you're screwed for days. All you can think about for days are BLTs and steak.

    Several years ago, acid reflux became my new best friend. It forced me to give up heavy/creamy/fat-ladened/sugary stuff and eat smaller amounts of whatever I eat. Now I prefer the natural fresh flavors of foods, seasoned with herbs, olive oil & lemon for dressing, broiled chicken or fish, and very seldom a good burger or steak. I occasionally eat fries, chips, and sweet stuff but not on a regular basis anymore (it will send me into a very bad sugar slump that makes my legs feel like rubber). My weakness is cookies, so we just don't buy them now.

    Our new favorite recipe comes from Taste of Home's Cooking For 2 magazine, submitted by Denise Elder. The salsa is also good over a green salad or mixed into cottage cheese (for a good post-ride meal!).

    Chicken with Mango Salsa

    1/2 cup chopped peeled mango
    1/2 cup chopped tomato
    2 Tbsp. minced fresh cilantro*
    1 Tbsp chopped jalapeno pepper**
    1 Tbsp. chopped red onion
    1-1/2 tsp. chopped celery
    1-1/2 tsp. lime juice
    1/4 tsp. grated lime peel
    2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 oz. each)***
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. pepper
    1 Tbsp. canola oil

    For salsa: In small bowl, combine the mango, tomato, cilantro, jalapeno, onion, celery, lime juice and peel. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.

    Season the chicken with S&P and cook [using your favorite method****]. Serve with salsa. 2 servings.

    * The second time I made it I substituted cilantro with a lesser amount of fresh basil. Nice! Hubby thought the taste of cilantro was a little too strong so if you use it you might try a lesser amount at first... unless you really like cilantro.
    ** I didn't use it, and didn't miss it, but if you like jalapeno it's probably good!
    *** I used frozen chicken tenderloins (unthawed).
    **** I rubbed each frozen tenderloin with olive oil on both sides, sprinkled with dried herbs, and broiled in the oven for 5 minutes each side, WATCHING CAREFULLY. If not overcooked, they turn out very juicy. The rack was a little lower than the highest position.

    Ice cream and cookies. Peanut M&Ms. Chips and dip. Cheese and crackers.

    Ah, those were the days when I could eat them all and sleep well all night and feel good the next day.

    As long as you eat the four basic food groups every day, it's all good.

    1, Coffee
    2, Donuts
    3, Burgers
    4, Fries

    Lots of Coffee

    Donuts get boring so you have to vary it with a few buns and cakes occasionally

    Burgers have to be made of top quality beef- have onion or garlic in them and cooked on the BBQ. Just as good are a Sausage called Merguez- They are fantastic.

    Now as to the fries- Only one country makes them well enough to have them every day but "Freedom" fries doesn't sound right.

    I grew up in my grandmother's kitchen, and she was a world class chef. So, I've got receipes galore along with almost 250 cookbooks. However, last night I did make one of my favorites. A 14 inch pizza from scratch with crab meat, scallions, Cabots extra sharp chedder cheese, capers, a small amount of poblano peppers, and a whole wheat crust with herbs mixed in. I was in gastronomical heaven!

    Oh, and for the folks who posted some version of "dark chocolate with..." You all forgot one: dark chocolate with, well more dark chocolate.

    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    There is a sign in my Kitchen. It says "Chris's Kitchen".

    Tonight I am preparing 12-15 ct Gulf Shrimp, marinated in Korean BBQ Sauce, quick grilled over a hot grill. Along with that we have Grilled vegetables such as red bell, zucchini, red onion, crimini mushrooms and jalapenos, drizzled with an olive oil/balsamic vinegar, ginger baste. Two ears of fresh white Brentwood corn will go on the grill, still in the husk. We have a blended Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier chilled just right for the drink. I made peach turnovers from our little, sweet, white peaches from our backyard tree for dessert.

    I have a 43 year old North of Scotland single malt scotch and a good cigar for the patio later.

    We had a good ride today. 45 miles 19.6 mph overall average. We are getting stronger. Tomorrow is another hill day.

    I do most of the cooking for my family. Mostly fairly simple stuff. Tonight it is chicken in red pepper marinade with rice and black beans.
