Fusion Cookin'

I amuse myself greatly at times. I was whiny tonight, didn't want to cook my dinner. But I pretended I was on teevee, and I've always loved it when I catch one of those chef shows. You know the ones with sparkling marble counters and spotless glass bowls. And all the ingredients laid out just so.

So I got out the glass bowls and chopped up the veggies all separately and put them into the bowls. Onions, sliced like a fingernail carrots and celery, perogies out of the freezer, sun-dried tomatoes, gluten free tiny pasta and a good stock (I always save my veggie and fish water).

And I played some music and talked to the imaginary camera as I cooked. A nifty soup and crisp on the outside cheesy on the inside perogies bathed in a sour-cream and Irish chili sauce mix. Nothing like anyone else would make. Ever.

I forgot to take a picture as I fell on it when it was ready as it was so late. Oh my. To die.

I'm ready for my close-up Mr. DeMille. I think the name of our show should be:

"Things you never thought you'd eat together."

I'm an expert.

  4. The good news is that my husband helps me prepare meals, especially since my knife and other such skills are declining rapidly due to rheumatoid arthritis. If you accidentally throw around a glass container of sticky marmalade, and it shatters all over everything, with each glass sliver and shard coated with marmalade, you start getting a lot of voluntary help with such tasks. The bad news is also that my husband helps me prepare meals, and that puts the kibosh on such fun as you had! Although he's all in favor of experimenting with spices--and the more the merrier in his world--he's a more get-it-done kind of guy!

    1. Ah I know whereof you speak I've been with several meat and potatoes guys. so to hear about your RA it does spoil the fun but adds an element of high risk to your endeavours. I made turkey tetrazzini tonight, it had been years. So when I cook I get 3 meals.

    2. Oh, I inadvertently maligned him by not explaining correctly. We're vegan, and he's quite inventive with the addition of spices and different ingredients. It's just that he wants to get it done. Presentation and fun along the way isn't part of his repertoire.

    3. It's all in the personality Linda, no I didn't take it as malignment at all. With some it is eating to live and a job. For others it's artistry. To each his own.

  5. My wife Cary often remarked I had a trait of Julia Child's in my cooking technique.....quaff wine while cooking, and assume someone else would clean up. I find now that I'm alone, only one of those serves me well.
    Wait....sour cream and Irish chili??? Hell's Irish chili? A Harp beer with a thai chili in the bottle?

    1. No Mike. It's a genuine sauce. My mother (among many) would put up bottle after bottle of the stuff. Don't know where the name from. But I see Heinz makes their own version now. Tomatoes onions cloves. It's great stuff.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
