The Cooking Zone: Ahi Tuna Sashimi at Home
« Reply #60 on: February 22, 2019, 03:22:24 PM »
The Big Cook is OVAH at last for the Diner 7th Anniversary FEAST, and I had a hankering for eating something BESIDES the fucking leftovers from 2 weeks worth of cooking up all these courses!

So for today, it is preparing your own Sashimi at home.  :icon_sunny:  A HUGE Money Saver!  Not hard to do either.

Next Up:  Eddie will drop in to diss me and predict I will die from a brain parasite because I don't know how to handle fish, I'm not a Biochemist and I'm not a Professional Sushi Chef.  ::)

I can't help sharing the finished product here with the Diners before the article comes out.  Absolutely the best Quiche I have ever made,or ever tasted in fact.  I was able to eat a FULL SLICE at one sitting.  That is amazing for me.  KH was over today to help get the new computer situated in the office space, she ate a full slice and wanted a couple more to bring home to her housemates.  So the first one is already almost gone!  I'm putting the 2nd one in the new deep freezer for later consumption.

Don't miss the article for Sunday Bunch with the Full Recipe and cooking techniques!

🥘 The Cooking Zone: A Japazilian Lunch
« Reply #65 on: March 13, 2019, 01:38:41 PM »
This is not as weird as it sounds.  In the aftermath of WWII, many Japanese with money left Japan and set up shop in Brazil, much as the Nazis set up shop in Argentina.  Japanese-Brazilian Fusion Food is very common, many restaurrants specialize in it.  In fact, after he retired from the Bankstering Biz, Dad the Pigman ran such a restaurant in Rio.

Today's Lunch features homemade Ahi Tuna and Salmon Sashimi, Feijon (Rice & Beans) and Fresh Fruit.  Feijon should not be confused with Feijoada, which has a lot more in it than just Rice & Beans.  I'm planning to do a Feijoada sometime in the near future for Dinner.

Meanwhile, enjoy the Lunch.

If you come from the Big Apple or Bean Town, you know there is no greater holiday with a greater tradition than St. Paddy's Day.  Folloiwng closely on the heels of the Ides of March, you can consider it a celebration of the fact you got through that one without getting stabbed in the back.  Of course, to really enjoy St. Paddy's Day, you have to be a bit fond of the Sauce.  lol.  The Drinking starts at Breakfast and doesn't stop for the whole day.  Somewhere in there you need to get some solid food down into your gut, or you will pass out too soon.  So for this St. Pat's Day, what else could I possibly cook up other than Corned Beef & Cabbage, the traditional food nourishment to accompany the Pints of Guiness Stout and the shots of Jameson's Irish Whisky?



Image result for pint of Guinness Stout Above you'll find the complete cooking instructions and recipe for the most scrumptious and delicious Corned Beef & Cabbage you will ever eat.  Done this year for the first time with my NEW Gourmia Insta-Pot!  I went into this with some trepidation due to the fact I had never tried Pressure Cooking a Brisket before.  Smoked, yes, Slow Cooked, yes.  Pressure Cooked, no.  As it turns out, this has to be the BEST way to prepare this dish, for both ease and simplicity.  About the only people who could not handle this cooking job are the supporters of Donalditry Trumpovetsky.  If you can't figure out how to Boil or Scramble an Egg, you're going to be out of your depth with doing this meal preparation.  For everyone else though, it's well within reach, and your guest will thank you, right before they heave it all up on your new Persian Rug. lol.



You might wonder why I am publishing this today rather than tomorrow, which is the actual St. Paddy'Day and also my regular Sunday Brunch article?  That's because I have planned for tomorrow an even BIGGER production including a Special Edition of the Collapse Morning Wake-Up Call and another new Cooking Zone recipe for an entirely NEW Soup never before cooked up on Planet Earth, Alaskan Collapse Wedding Soup!  Assuming of course I can get all the editing done by tomorrow morning.  Real crush for me on that deadline, and I have already been umbilically tied to the computer for the last 2 days, when not actually cooking, or of course sleeping or excreting.  lol.



Anyhow, let's enjoy the holiday tomorrow in typical Diner style, while we consume Corned Beef and Cabbage and your choice of Alcoholic beverages.  Here's a Music selection for the day as well, in the Irish style.  Below follows a few choice still photos from the Cook.









 



…and now a few choice Pics from the Cook!



Is this too much Garlic do you think?






Great Fresh Veggies from the Food Superstore!



   



LOVE that JUICY FAT!






HUNGRY yet?

We've been doing quite a few "Premium Meals" lately in the Cooking Zone, our Diner 7th Anniversary FEAST which featured Alaskan King Crab & Ribeye Steak for instance, or the SalmonTeriyaki Bake or the Corned Beef & Cabbage for St. Paddy's Day.  Actually the last two are within SNAP Card prices when you factor in how many days you can eat the leftovers.  However, for today's episode of the Cooking Zone, we are going "Back to Basics" with meals well within the SNAP Card Budget of $5/day or $1.67/meal for a 3-meal Day.  Criteria a meal must meet to fit the SNAP Card Menu are:



1- It must come in under the Budget for the meal.



2- You must be able to cook it on prtable cooking apparatus you could use in a Bugout situation where you have to GTFO of Daodge in a hurry.  Think Wildfires, Floods or Earthquakes.  Don't worry too much about the rising Oceans swallowing you up, that won't happen so fast.



3-  The meal should be Nutritious with no JUNK FOOD!



4-  The meal should be DELICIOUS and help you forget your troubles while you enjoy eating it.



I did the first video in the middle of the week, then I decided to do another one which I just did a still pic of, then last night I got a bug up my butt to do another vid.  That's why this article is going up so late this morning.



Breakfast #2



All right from the cooler!  Makes you want to SMILE!  🙂  Cherrios, Boiled Egg, Fruit, Rice & Yogurt






 



Breakfast #3



 



The "All-American Breakfast:.  Bacon, Eggs Over EZ, Hashbrowns & Toast.

Citrus-Maple Salmon with a Side of Collapse

An extra special TREAT for the Diners for Saturday Brunch today as the Spring weather comes here to the Last Great Frontier, a NEW and DELICIOUS recipe for that great Alaska Collapse Food, SALMON!  In this invention, I combined the flavors of the Carribean and the flavors of the North East during Maple Sap Tapping season.  The combination turned out to be exceptionally SCRUMPTIOUS!



Salmon is for Alaska the perfect Collapse food, one you can acquire without the need for money and without JIT delivery to your local Food Superstore.  The recipe though has some deficiencies in this regard, as Citrus fruits likely will not be shipped in here after SHTF Day arrives on the Last Great Frontier.  For the Maple Syrup though, you could easily substitute Birch Syrup which we tap right here nearby where I live.



The cook also is done with our Collapse Bugout Cooking Apparatus, this time the Electric Toaster Oven.  Price was also kept down to near the SNAP Card Budget, although it does slightly exceed it so this one qualifies as a low-end Premium Meal, not a typical day's meal when you are working on a tight food budget.



In other newz, since this cook I have been Upgrading the Cooking Zone Kitchen to be more of a Professional Utoob Chef's arrangement, with all my tools at easy arms reach and easily found when needed when you discover you forgot to find a tool before you started the camera running.  lol.  Here's the curent state of the refit:









This recent upgrade follows the initial upgrade I did to have a better Video set for production, cmera angles and lighting.  Here's the Tour of the Cooking Zone right after the initial upgrade was finished a few months ago:






As you can see, many cooking tools have now magically appeared on hooks surrounding my Food Prep area, which also doubles as my Consumption Location for EATING 😋 the food after I cook it up!   Besides installing all those hooks and auxiliary shelves, I also dug out of my preps in long term storage my nice Nipponese-style porcelain dishware to consume from, to give it all that classy, restaurant look to it. 🙂  Unfortunately, the largest plates in the set all broke I guess in the last move here, but they were too big anyhow.



The Food Prep and Consumption area also serves as the set for cooking on the Bugout apparatus of the Electic Hotplate, which you can see sitting on the shelf ready for action, which is often.  In fact most of my recipes are cooked here rather than on the gas stove to show they can be done with just this kind of apparatus and nothing else.



Not shown in the recent pics is the main standard cooking location of the Gas Stove, currently undergoing renovations.  I should have this neighborhood up to snuff in about 2 weeks, after Bozos delivers some stuff with FREE Shipping from Amazon Prime! 🙂  Also, remember when you buy stuff off Amazon to use the smile.amazon.com subweb and designate the Sustaining Universal Needs Foundation of Boiling Springs, SC as your Charity.  It doesn't cost you any extra, Bozos makes the donation.  Help us to Build a Better Tomorrow!






OK, that's the latest from the Cooking Zone, be sure to tune in tomorrow for the Collapse Morning Wake-Up Call for a Special European Edition covering Brexit, Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests), German Recession and further Greek buttfucking by Brussels.  Here's a short trailer for tomorrow's broadcast:

Sometimes the ongoing Political Kabuki Theater & Clown Show we are immersed in transitions from just being mildly amusing to downright HILARIOUS.  Such was the case a few days ago when fresh off my chat with Jason Heppenstall of 22 Billion Energy Slaves, I was cooking Breakfast and simultaneously listeing LIVE to "debate" ongoing in Parliament following Theresa the Terrible's (TtT) latest defeat on her latest call for a Vote on her Brexit non-Plan.  Theresa has been living in Cricket-Land too long and obviously does not know the rule that 3 Strikes and YOU'RE OUT!  No more innings for Theresa!



Related image



TtT is not the only Clown operating on the political scene in Brit-ville though, they have enough Clowns to fill the entire Bench, and fortunately for those of us cooking breakfast at 4AM Alaska Time, this makes for a VERY entertaining backdrop for making an Omelet!  All brought to me through the magic of microprocessors, fiber optic cable and absolute GOBS of energy being consumed by Cisco Routers all over the world to get these juicy packets of information to my BIG SCREEN OLED monitor and amplified Sound Bar with Sub-Woofer. 🙂



Image result for alexandria ocasio-cortez dancing For those of us living on this side of the pond, even those at the far western end on the Bering Sea like me, this is a welcome respite from our own Political Soap Operas, including but not limited to Trumpovetsky threatening to close the border with Mejico, handing out Security Clearances to anyone who had regular Chats with Ruskie Intelligence or could Fog a Mirror, Uncle Joe Biden Groping his way around every set of Ta-Tas that ever appeared on a Podium with him in the last 50 years of stumping and cutting deals with his Corporate Masters, all while AoC shakes her Bodacious set of Ta-Tas around to get everyone to pay attention to the problem of Gender inequality.  This being more important of course than the fact everybody is going fucking broke these days!



Anyhow, I don't talk too much in this Breakfast Recipe Video (for a change!), other than to give a few pointers along the way for making a good Mushroom Omelet and cooking cheap and EZ sausage patties and hashbrowns and set up the cook at the beginning.  The rest of the time you get to listen right along with me to a bunch of Prep School Jokers bloviating and trying to "solve" a problem in the next 2 weeks they have been completely unable to make progress on in the last 3 years since the Limeys voted to exit the Hotel California Europa, where you can Check Out but you can Never Leave.  It should get very interesting as we get closer to this latest of constantly moving backward deadlines.



For a little more in depth analysis in case you missed it, here's Jason & me discussing the Brexit Fiasco, along with numerous of the other ongoing Collapse Calamities befalling the E.U. these days, as the leader of the pack of Western countries to spin down the toilet in the Collapse of Industrial Civilization.






…and don't miss next Saturday's Cooking Zone vid "The Holy Meal", complete with a Burning BBQ!






…Welcome to the Doomstead Diner, where you can Check Out, but you can Never Leave.
