    A hint on Step 9, because this does sound really good... Don't use canned olives because they taste metallic, so does the brine. When you reduce it, or use it to deglaze a pan, that flavour concentrates in the sauce. Try using a cerignola brine from the olive bar at your local grocery, or if you want a bit more tartness, try a kalamata brine.

    Try this for an appetizer or side:

    Angle cut a french baguette
    Brush slices lightly with olive oil
    Sprinkle with garlic pepper mix and red pepper flakes
    Top with green olive tapenade, a slice of sun dried tomato, and shaved parmesan cheese

    Pop 'em under the broiler until the cheese starts getting golden brown.

    It would be even better if you crisped some white or fatty meat in the oil first (like diced chicken or pork, prosciutto, bacon, etc). Then separate the oil from the meat -keeping the oil in the pan- and make a simple rue by adding some flour to the oil and frying it a bit longer while stirring.

    Even if you only use a tiny amount of meat and flour it will greatly increase the richness and flavor of your cream based dish.

    Girlfriend will come in time. In the meantime you don't have to share that awesome meal with anyone ... yah I know that probably didn't help. OK, here goes another try: Any girl would be lucky to get a guy who can cook like that ... and that's a fact, Jack! OK, still not very good. How about simply: Enjoy your meal

    I respect your cooking skills. My steps for a successful dinner are either:

    1: Drive to Kerbey Lane or Magnolia Cafe.
    2: Order.
    3: Eat.
    4: Pay bill with credit card.

    or:

    1: Peel open frozen dinner.
    2: Add olive oil or Smart Balance.
    3: Stick in microwave.
    4: Eat.

    I'm glad our final step is the same.

    I
    cooked seabass in a pan with a dash of olive oil
    chopped veggies (carrots, onion, green beans)
    sauteed veggies (covered) with a dash of teryaki, some white rice wine, red pepper flakes, and sea salt.
    set water with finely chopped ginger to boil for rice
    turned veggies down to simmer, laid the bass on top, recovered
    cooked rice
    served as a bed of rice with veggies under/over the fillet


    If skills in the kitchen were dates... I'd have had at least 5 solid ones in my lifetime.

    Oh, I shouldn't forget to mention how well this meal was complemented by PBR.

    steps 2 -12 are pretty damn self explanatory

    Oh yum. I think a glass of wine would work better though.

    It has yet to occur to me to buy wine for myself. This was the result of me going out to buy a piece of fish because I realized I needed some protein in my dinner.

    Be careful when it does finally occur to you. That stuff goes down way too easily

    Since were cooking, here is a super easy pesto recipe:

    1 cup fresh basil (thats 2 of those plastic boxes if you get the organic stuff)
    1/3 cup olive oil
    2 Tbsp grated Parmesan Cheese
    1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
    2 tsp dijon mustard
    1 clove of garlic, chopped.

    Put all this in a blender or food processor until the basil is in tiny little bits.

    Its really good on toast, as a sandwich spread, salad dressing, on pasta, in sauce. All kinds of options.

    The first rule of flats is You don't talk about flats!

    I've had this Indian cook book for ages and finally got around to buying all the spices I need to make some of the dishes. Once you get past finding the obscure spices you've never heard of, the dishes are all really simple and really good. Usually you just heat some oil in a frying pan, throw some spices in, throw in the veggies and you're done.
