Making meatballs now so I don't gotta do it later :D

You can also cook the pasta now and then put it in the fridge, then reheat it along with the sauce (when I do pasta bakes I prepare the sauce and pasta together then let it chill and pop it in the over when we actually get hungry). Cooling and then reheating starchy foods turns some of the starch into semi-indigestible resistant starch, which acts essentially as if it's fibre in the digestive system.

This I did not know.

Ya learn something new everyday. Thanks :D

I got a gift of Omaha sirloin steaks. I will be reverse searing these using expeller pressed peanut oil and basting it with butter. And I'll let it rest for a few minutes like Derek recommended.

Om nom nom. Can't wait.

Why use peanut oil at all? (As opposed to just butter.) The flavour or aroma doesn't tend to remain through cooking in my experience.

Edit: Also, more-saturated fats are better for high-heat cooking. I would baste it in butter and then sear it in beef drippings.

I also wouldn't use peanut oil, but for different reasons.

No, I don't like the flavor. It's for Thai food and nothing else.

I'll do one with and one without to see the difference since I have a ton of steaks. I just saw Chef Ramsay recommend it so I figured I'd give it a shot. :shrug:

Sauteed some mussels in butter, garlic, and some herbs. Also got drunk before hand, forgot how fun it is to make cook dinner while intoxicated :)

This evening I wanted to make asparagus risotto, but when I went to grab the arborio rice I realised — too late, since I had already started sautéing the shallots and garlic and cooking the asparagus — that the rice had been used up late last year when René's sister made Thai sticky coconut rice. So I improvised and used spelt!

It turned out perfectly! Plus, it's so much healthier, with significantly more protein and fibre than rice.

^I did not expect to like this dish, but I did. I'd never liked spelt or rocket or asparagus before!

YES! I love drinking and cooking. I actually came here looking for a food thread with recipes and then I saw this one. I made a big ol' pot of seafood gumbo the other night.

SPAGHETTI! I love making spaghetti :) there's so many different ways to make it but my favorite is with ground Turkey and smoked Turkey sausage.

I start off by boiling the noodles and while that's cooking throw the sausages in the pan and saute some onions, green peppers and mushrooms. After that cook the ground Turkey with minced garlic, oregano and Worcestershire sauce and throw it all together with your choice of sauce ( I usually get Hunts four cheese)

Haha, the pronunciation of the original area in England that it's named after is more like WOOS-tuh-shure.
