Default What's Cooking?

Yeah I know, "the kitchen is womens' work". But I was curious as to how many of y'all -enjoy- cooking, and what's some of the things you can/have/do make for dinner.

Being a stay at home dad, my outlook might be different than most.. but for example, tonight's meal is going to be thai-marinade chicken with stir-fry veggies and rice. All home made, only the ingredients are store bought.

So.. what's for dinner for you?

Steak, salad and 'taters. I can cook me up some food, yo. I cook better than the majority of "modern" women, i imagine.

I only cook occasionally, but when I do, my wife loves it. My "go to"s: Barbequed Ham, Chili, Grilled Chicken, Steak, or Burgers, Meaty Cheese Dip, Oven Fried Seasoned Potatoes... None of it mildly healthy of course...

I really enjoy cooking its kind of a stress reliever for me. I can cook/bake almost anything and 99% of the time it comes out really good. Marinades/dry rubs are something Im really good at putting together. Like Shepard Book said, everythings possible with the right spices.

No. Taco salad isn't really like Mexi food. Much like American pizza isn't really pizza.

I can't really cook if it's up to me to come up with anything complicated, but I do grill really well with the right marinades. To be honest, lately I cook more often than my girl, which has become sort of annoying. She and I both work late a lot, but somehow I end up being the one having to cook more often than not, and the rule used to be: one cooks, the other one cleans. But somehow when I cook, I clean, and when she cooks, I clean too. Kinda getting old.

I usually fix stuff like grilled chicken, salmon, pork chops, steak or kabobs (either steak or chicken) and occasionally burgers. I will help her out in the kitchen, but if it's more complicated than "throw shit in a frying pan" or "throw some marinated meat or veggies on the grill" then I'm out. I almost always have to be the one to grill, which I don't mind. My girl usually overcooks chicken or steak because she doesn't like it rarer, but that usually means it's too well-done for me.

This thread will be a good source for Eddieisms.

Chicken has got to be white all the way through with clear juices. I don't fuck with undercooked pork or chicken. Hell, i like my hamburgers panzer grey in the center.

Steak is the only meat i'll take pink.

The only meats that I will eat not-done is steak and maybe some fish. That's what I meant. I've gotten sick as shit before, so I cook all processed meat like beef and chicken thoroughly. Burgers will usually not be gray, but they won't be showing any pink or be bloody.

I think there are some animals you can take not cooked to death, i just don't generally encounter them.


Moving on, i can cook the fuck out of some Pho (damn, don't have the correct character for that o), and have even manage baklava a time or two.

Pho is Vietnamese beef soup with a fish sauce component. Apparently it comes in chicken and pork varieties, but fuck those inferior animals.


Baklava isn't hard, just labor intensive.
