Ok here's one.


Ham, Sausage, or Bacon?




 Oh shit did I really just ask that question on DTF????
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Different pig for different roles. In fact I have all three on the stove right now. Ham and andouille in a pot of beans, and bacon/ham in a pot of greens. If I had to pick just one, I'm not sure but I think I might go with sausage. As tasty and versatile as bacon is, sausage is just too useful, due in large part to the numerous varieties. Think of how many things you can do with plain ole breakfast sausage, both in bulk and link form. Then throw Italian sausage into the mix. Wurst makes for a variety of good eats. And then there's the mighty chorizo. While some bacon is certainly better than others, it's still bacon at the end of the day.

Ham is probably my least favorite of the three so it's always between sausage and bacon.  Lately bacon is king though.

For seasoning things (beans, greens, whatever), I actually prefer dropping in some side meat or a ham hock.  But that's just me.

Hard to argue with the versatility of sausage.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I honestly don't know if I'd consider that more disgusting or shameful. I enjoy doughnuts as much as the next guy they don't improve every single thing they could be added to.

It's not that elaborate, but few things beat pasta with homemade meatsauce. I made some today - just ground beef, onion, garlic, tomatoes, red wine and spices - and it was heavenly. Put on some fresh parmesan and you've got yourself an instant win.

Indeed. I use hot Italian sausage, myself, but the premise remains the same. It's a damned useful thing to have on hand, also. After you get tired of spaghetti you make a nice baked ziti out of it. With the Italian sausage it also makes a fine pizza. It's also damned easy to vac-pack a serving or two to leave in the freezer. I dig the shit out of having home cooked food on hand.

A mix of hamburger and veal is so damn flavorful.   The wife is hanging with her best friend and making homemade sauce soon.  Got 6 jars last time.

Anybody fortunate enough to live in a city with a Penzey's Spices in town should definitely take advantage of it. I've been a big fan of the spices for a while now, and they cost damn near the same as their greatly inferior Spice Island and McCormick counterparts. Great quality in the herbs and spices, and some wonderful blends (the vindaloo rules).

But the kicker is that they send coupons out in the catalog and in their emails for free stuff. I walked out of there the other day with two pretty good freebies. One of them was a Turkish blend that I've been hammering the shit out of. Mixed with yogurt and a bit of lemon juice it makes a fantastic marinade. Tonight I cranked out a couple of pounds of Kofta that was (and will continue to be) fantastic. It's awesome when somebody dumps a bag of spices on you that encourages you to venture into making new stuff.

Ha, I just went to one yesterday and was encouraging a friend to go since he's getting more and more into cooking. I definitely agree that Penzey's is worth the trip.

I don't think I've ever seen one by me but I'll look for a close one.  Maybe it's not too far.  I'm big on spices in cooking and I warn people that eat my food that they should make sure they like a heavy palate.  Although I've toned it down for some people.

I had some leftover bacon so I made a mac n' cheese with bacon, cauliflower and I added gouda.   Topped it with panko crumbs.

My girlfriend and I attempted our first curry dish tonight. I love indian food, so was quite skeptical that it would live up to my expectations, but I can honestly say that I would prefer to do this than going to a restuarant. All we have to find is a nice doughy naan recipe and I'd be set.

Also, we cooked quinoa instead of rice, which I quite liked since quinoa doesn't have much flavour compared to rice, which allowed me to enjoy the curry even more.

You're the second person to make that recommendation to me in the last month.  Thankfully, there is one in West Hartford, which is about 20 minutes from me.   There was a great spice store in Philly (Italian Market) which is great for me because I know the flavors, but I don't always know the names.  Might head over there this weekend. 

I like making things that sound gross or plain but adding something special to it.  I'd like to think my Shepherd's Pie is something special (my kid LOVES it), and I just tried a tuna noodle casserole that was good, but I already know what I have to do to make it a bit better.  I also like making penne ala vodka, and I have a killer sausage/pasta recipe I make.

Are you one of those crazy fucks that roasts and grinds all the spices by hand? For my part that's what Penzy's is for. Not really because I'm lazy, but since I can't really go out and drop a ton of money on 15 oddball spices that I'll rarely use. Fenugreek? Now how often does the need for that arise?

Personally, I'm a big fan of aloo matar. Easy to make and goes well with a lot of things. Eventually I figured out that fresh serrano peppers are the secret to the whole thing. No other pepper gives it the right flavor.

Yeah, you can spend a ton of time in there sniffing all of the sample jars. Tons of stuff to discover, though I lack the ability to sniff some new spice and think "hey, that'd work swell in X."  I do know that I've been blowing right through the 4oz bag of the Turkish seasoning blend they gave me a couple of weeks ago. Pretty easy to do crazy shit with that stuff.

this one's with cherries

this one's with blueberries, I like it more

here's the recipe. the fruit can be any fruit
