Went over to my mum's for some of her most excellent cabbage rolls today, a bottle of my favourite beer -Hacker-Pschorr Hefe Weissbier to wash them down with, and a delicious apple torte for desert, enjoyed with a glass of good madiera. I also scored a tonne of left overs. Huzzah!

Tritip is incredible in crockpot chili, especially if you have the will to not eat it until the next day.

@Norton and Butcher - Roast pork loin is awesome because you can still fry it. It makes super fast and tasty pork chops in the morning, a lot healthier than bacon, ham or most sausages if you’re gonna eat pork.

Tried my hand at pizza dough for the first time. (This recipe.) Topped with mozzarella and coppa over tomato sauce, and finished after baking with arugula on top.

Pizza was good (toppings were amazing) but dough came out a bit undercooked. Turns out oven was too low (375 F or 180 C when recipe called for 500 F, or 260 C, a temperature I’m not even sure my oven can pull off).

I liked it well enough that I’m set on making a new batch of dough, but wondering whether to just crank up the temperature as recommended, or to keep a low temp for longer (might be gentler on the toppings?).

Had the last little bit of turkey meat marinating in a mix of lemon citrus juice and coriander, then used that as the base for some soft tacos.

@Tulpa Girl I'm confused. Why do you say soft tacos? Is there a thing called hard tacos?

@EmperorNorton A taco is a small tortilla with something on it. You can use corn or wheat tortilla's, but you can't have tacos on top of wheat tortillas.

I made tacos today, but they weren't as fancy as Tulpa Girl's. Tacos are one of my favorite foods. So simple and so delicious!

That is remarkably pedantic. When someone says they want a ham & cheese sandwich on wheat they don't mean a whole sandwich put inside another set of wheat bread.
That wasn't my intention. I really thought you meant that a taco didn't include the tortilla. :sweat:

It was more that I prefer tacos with corn tortillas to an extreme degree. Wheat seems more a burrito or quesadilla thing.

Count down to Indonesia continues. Now T - 2 days.

Jakarta has pretty much anything culinary you want to conceive of, from steak to peking duck to ramen to fish restaurants to traditional street food. It's quite the melting pot.

Jakarta is quite a cool city in its own way.

Would be nice if it had infrastructure that did the job. Durians don't do a lot for me either.

Central Java, on the other hand, is much nicer. Solo is the most family-friendly city in Indonesia. I'd actually be quite happy to live there if I could find a location-independent source of income [consideration of preparing a RPG product line intensifies].

Hard Tacos are a Americanized mexican food thing. The tortillas are crisp fried kind of like a chip. Kind of like a corn chip in texture (though doesn't taste the same.

I've generally heard them referred to as "gringo tacos" by Mexican Americans :tongue:.

I'm not a fan personally, I prefer soft tacos, which are what you would be used to.

There's a roasted variant called a tostada, which can be quite delicious. It's round and flat, not folded. Best I had was in Oaxaca.



The triangular "corn chips" or "tortilla chips" are called totopos in Mexico. Quality varies, but they can be really good, especially with guacamole.



Those "gringo tacos" are sometimes called "taco shells" here. I'm not really a fan.

For Thanksgiving I normally brine a frozen turkey, but this year I went with a fresh organic turkey in a 24 hour brine instead of the usual 48 hour frozen brine. The fam thought it was awesomeness. Did a cranberry curd tart instead of the usual pumpkin pie.

Pizza was good (toppings were amazing) but dough came out a bit undercooked. Turns out oven was too low (375 F or 180 C when recipe called for 500 F, or 260 C, a temperature I’m not even sure my oven can pull off).

If your oven can't reach the temps, you may want to pre bake the dough a bit.

It’s back to food prepping for the week.

Swiss steak in the crock pot. A batch of red chile sauce for breakfast burritos.

and “Ramen.”


I took chicken and vegetable stock, stir fry veggie mix, yakisoba noodles and the flavor packets that came with them, and Chinese style bbq pork.

Gonzo Ramen from leftover roast chicken

I have a homemade ramen process to re-use remains of rotisserie chickens. Basically you make a chicken stock from the chicken, with some onion, leek, garlic to make it into a nice broth (simmer for at least two hours and then strain through a colander into a bowl). Keep aside some of the chicken from the rotisserie if you have any left, or fry up some beef or prawns.

Now, get some spring onion, bok choi, bean sprouts, coriander and chillies - whichever ones you have or can get easily.

Boil some eggs and peel and cut in half.

Cook some egg noodles.

Place the noodles in a bowl, add the soup. Place the vegetables, half an egg and whatever meat you've cooked up on top.

Enjoy.

Tried a wagyu steak for the first time, although I'm not sure I could really tell the difference between wagyu and any other type of steak.

Also, Pecel Lele - crispy fried catfish from a street food vendor.
