Cooking question: live alone, work 70+hrs a week, what would you put together quickly after a long day working and studying and you just need some comfort?
Hey! I love “comfort” food, it’s the reason I’m as soft as I am. Just can’t give it up. At times, taking the time on a Sunday to prep for these things helps with a busy schedule.
Comfort at it’s finest. Fried chicken, homemade breadcrumbs, sliced chicken breasts breaded and cooked in oil. Home made tartar sauce and ketchup for dipping.
Burgers and dutch fries: Slice the potatoes, fry them up in veg oil, meanwhile broil or grill hamburger. Slice tomatoes, avocado, lettuce and onions up. Slap it into a bun of your choice ( mine was a loaf I made).
Yes yes yes yes. I love bacon.
Brussels, & Bacon: 1 pound of diced bacon, use the remaining bacon grease to caramelized diced onions, in another pot steam a bunch of brussels sprouts (just barely, undercook a tad) mix onions and sprouts in bacon grease. Bake a russet potato in the oven, pile the bacon/onion/brussels sprout mixture into the freshly baked potato. enjoy.
Crisp & clean. I love salad, sometimes I just crave ‘em. Call me crazy.
Big old salad of mixed butter lettuce and romaine with toppings: red cabbage, avocado, cauliflower cucumber, and red pepper. Salad dressing home made: olive oil, balsamic vinegar, white wine vinegar, flax seed oil and salt & pepper. Throw some roasted chicken on there and enjoy.
My famous among friends Chili. Proof below some photo of a batch I made at my parent’s place a couple years back. 1 pound of ground beef, 1 can dark red kidney beans, i can diced tomatoes, 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1 can chick peas, 1 orange pepper, 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper, 1 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, 1 yellow onion, 1 package of white mushrooms. Spice with red chili flakes to taste and preference.
BREAD. Go’on with your bad self and bake up a batch, takes about an hour and a half.
