Re: What have you cooked recently

Yesterday, we had a chicken breast that needed eating, so I cubed it and chucked it in the crockpot on top of onion, celery, carrot,,bay leaves, S&P, and let it slow cook all day.  Come the evening, I sauteed some finely chopped mushrooms in butter, then added the stock from the crock, milk, thickened it, shredded the chicken and chucked it in with a little mozzarella and served it over pasta.  It turned out ok -disappeared too fast for pictures https://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons3/wink.png

Re: What have you cooked recently

Wool isn't worth anything in the US, so you don't get the meat byproduct like Australia / NZed. You'd think with how popular and expensive Smartwool is there would be production here.

Re: What have you cooked recently

The cost of production down under must be way less to make up for transport.
But I think I have read that with super ships transportation costs hardly count.
I  was going to post a vid of live sheep transport, but it didn't work; probably a good thing.

He probably used the Monkey, instead of the paper clip in the posting page.

Re: What have you cooked recently

I roasted some vegetables this weekend.  They're easy to make, inexpensive, good for you, but the prep.... ugh.

Re: What have you cooked recently

I've been super into pesto lately. 

Boil up a bit of pasta, throw in some frozen veg a few mins before it's done and then once drained stir through some pesto - simple but tasty

Re: What have you cooked recently

For some reason I have you labeled in my mind as someone who hates cilantro, but in case I'm wrong--chimichurri is another great "bunch of green stuff" paste that tastes amazing on everything.

Re: What have you cooked recently

Had to quickly look that up on Google - was fairly sure it meant coriander - hadn't realised you guys have separate terms for different parts of the plant

I like coriander leaves - haven't had it in a paste though - that sounds great.

Re: What have you cooked recently

I don't know what Google told you, but around here there aren't separate names for separate parts of the plant (stems vs. leaves, I guess?) It's all just cilantro. Actually, in my brain the way I think of it is that it's coriander when it's in Indian dishes, and cilantro when it's in Mexican dishes.

Re: What have you cooked recently

This was what I found: https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/cilantro-vs-coriander

In North America, cilantro refers to the leaves and stalks of the plant. The word “cilantro” is the Spanish name for coriander leaves. Meanwhile, the dried seeds of the plant are called coriander.Internationally, it’s a different story. Coriander is the name for the leaves and stalks of the plant, while the dried seeds are called coriander seeds.

Re: What have you cooked recently

It's probably similar to the way all the lists of Brit -v- US language differences always advise Americans that if they refer to trousers as pants it will be an embarrassing mistake because in Britain 'pants' means underwear .... except in large swathes of the country the word is used in exactly the same way as in the US
Same with jumper / sweater 

The Cilantro/coriander split is probably a feature of  standard american English  that actually differs region to region

Re: What have you cooked recently

I'm the cilantro hater -tastes like soap.  I only learned that that was a genetic thing in the last decade or so.  Prior to that, I thought all my soapy experiences at the balti houses of Birmingham in my student days were related to over-enthusiasm with the fairly liquid and under-enthusiasm on the post-wash rinse.

Re: What have you cooked recently

The chemistry and genetics of taste are pretty fascinating to me--I think beets taste like dirt, as a lot of people do, but I also think cherries taste like that same kind of dirt to a somewhat lesser degree, and I've never met anyone else who thinks the same.
