Awesome looking etouffee DS, just beautiful.



Since when is an OT FG an asskicking?  Cowboys/Bills, now that was an asskicking. ;)

Nice looking etouffee for a first try DS.

Yeah...almost as sad as another Eagles fourth quarter loss after being up most of the game.

Well, that's what you get for watching football in the What's For Dinner Thread.   ;)

BTW  The chicken etoufee turned out great.  Even the chickens were from scratch (a friend brought two of her freshly butchered hens).

Indian food tonight...completely vegetarian, although not on purpose.  Aloo samosas, with a flour/besan/shortening crust, stuffed with a spicy coconut/potato/onion/red pepper/jalapeno stuffing, deep fried, with a thick dal soup with lots of pureed vegetables (actually a large amount of roasted hatch chilies pureed into it, as well as roasted eggplant and squash), and basmati rice cooked in spice-laced ghee.  The dal was HOT.  Perhaps too liberal a hand with the hatch chilies!  But good.

Burnt the meat, dropped it on the patio, grill went up in flames, someone ate the leftovers you were gonna use...
How is it vegetarian, not on purpose?
The moral majority, is neither.

Yet another reason...laziness combined with a head cold.  Samosas are terrifically labor intensive, so I really didnt feel like thawing out some chicken, making up the besan batter...I thoroughly intended to have chicken pakoras AND naan in addition to the above.  Ah well, at least I know on which subcontinent I could theoretically survive should I be forbidden meat in the future.  Nothing is more soul-crushing than bland vegetarian food.  No wait, I can think of something worse...soy-derived industrial "meat substitute" types of vegetarian food.

Mine was vegetarian on purpose and what got grabbed out of the fridge on the way out the door to work.

Spicy black beans seasoned with chipotle, jalepeno, onion, garlic, tomato paste and comino. 

Steamed medium grain white rice and saute'd cabbage with onion and caraway.

I intend to do some BBQ this weekend for the family, but for now it's lowfat vegetarian all the way baby.

 :o :D Well you know in some cultures flatulence after a meal is good manners. Maybe. But as long as I keep the meal low or non-fat then the air is windy but safe...
