What are you eating? (food porn)

Recommended Posts

the enduring allure of meatloaf...
 
was reading a detective novel last night and right before I went to sleep the protagonist Harry Bosch was near a deli counter in LA that offered meatloaf sandwiches and he got one to take back to his car to eat (he was on surveillance) as I was falling asleep...needless to say that I woke up hungry a few hours later...
 
and then there was the condemned man on death row in a recent movie who when asked what he wanted for his last meal 'meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn bread, mighty fine...'...and now things were at a fever pitch and I looked in the 'favorites' in my food section
 
https://www.geniuskitchen.com/recipe/yes-virginia-there-is-a-great-meatloaf-54257
 
so then meatloaf and mashed potatoes comin' up (with plenty of milk, butter and fresh ground black pepper)...ain't got no corn meal so can't make no corn bread...but that meatloaf and mash was mighty fine...
 
make yer meatloaf dreams become a reality TODAY...
 
 
 


Without corn meal you CAN make no cornbread.

I’m my opinion, cornbread does not go that well with meatloaf anyway.

I love a good pork meatloaf, and meatloaf gravy is the bomb.

I’m having a hankering for some stuffed bell-peppers...

man...it's been so long that I've had cornbread or the cornmeal available to make it from that I can hardly remember what it tastes like...

 

I feel that cornbread goes good with most things...the dude on death row coulda had wonder bread but he didn't...and cornbread wouldn't do very well with a meatloaf sandwich...I used some of the local packaged bread for my meatloaf sandwich today, hadta toast it first but it still tasted funny even with lotsa mustard...a nice fresh vietnamese baguette woulda done the trick...

 

took the left over mash and fried it up in the skillet with the last sausage from the TGM that I bought last time at makro...the mash warmed up in the sausage grease came out with a nice aroma of potato hashbrowns...

 

down the hatch...

hmmm...harina means flour in english and corn flour is not what ye want for corn bread...hasta be corn meal...

 

but no matter, where I live it's hard to find wheat flour for regular bread much less corn meal for corn bread...I looked around at foodland when in BKK  but not in Villa...a lot of times you'll find packaged 'corn bread mix' inna box...just add water, etc...I think that's why my tennessee grandma quit making cornbread because she always wanted to be in control of the ingredients of whatever she made...she always made things from scratch...jesus, her peach cobbler was to die for...

But that is usually corn meal not flour. I found another picture to make it more clear. They also mention (though the text appears very small on the picture) that it is suitable for corn bread.
Maybe some store catering for the African community in Bangkok has it?harina-PAN-back.jpeg

Some Big C used to have Polenta from their French Casino Brand.
I bought it twice and since it was only in a cardboard box it had bugs inside.

I found this interesting one:

saag aloo with eggplant/aubergines...

 

https://www.theguardian.com/food/2019/feb/16/vegan-saag-aloo-spinach-and-potato-curry-aubergine-recipe-meera-sodha

 

very tasty this one, didn't have no spinach and used baby bok choy and good enough...I still had some of the small cans of tomato paste left, last time I looked at makro they had no small cans and just the huge 400g cans which is a disgrace as ye only need a coupla tbbls for any given recipe...whaddaya supposed to do wid a goddam 400g can? one can always use fresh toms, I suppose...

 

didn't have no kashmiri chile powder so used the local flaked red chile instead...gotta be careful with that stuff because if used illiberally it'll burn you a new one...you can get both hot and mild at the market, best to experiment using both and mix and store to get the best effect...black mustard seeds and cumin seeds available at makro...

MD, I tried PMR today and I agree, it was pretty good- so I checked. Wasn't really looking for more caffeine, but ginseng can't be bad. It's definitely not as sweet & delicious as regular Pepsi, guess that's normal for diet sodas. Been a while, but Diet Sprite isn't bad... but it's unavailable.

 

"Pepsi Max is a zero calorie cola beverage... designed to taste more like regular Pepsi than Diet Pepsi by using the sweeteners Aspartame and Ace-k. It contains more caffeine than regular Pepsi and has added ginseng."

My position on food and drink is that if it tastes good, it is good.

I agree!, but just eat it, don't ask what it is.
