good food ideas

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by FLOYDtheBARBER, Apr 6, 2003.


  1. i tried something new tonight:
    -take a banana
    -slice a strip down it, peel away skin to sides, leaving skin on
    -cut slices on banana inside
    -put in marshmallow fluff
    -put on chocolate chips
    -microwave
    it's good!!!

    anyone else have cool things like this to share?
    i love trying new food things. or old food things. or any kind of food at all. (what can i say? i'm a fat kid.)

    Melf's Protein Pie

    Take a cube of tofu.
    Take a pudding mix.
    Take a pie shell.

    Grind the tofu up and sprinkle in the pudding mix.
    When tofu is more liquid than solid, put it into the pie shell and let it sit overnight. It's ready the next day.

    Some flavors like coconut taste horrible. Others, like pistachio, taste ok. Whipped cream makes it taste a lot better. It's not any gourmet dessert but if you're trying to build muscle fast and don't want to eat huge slabs of meat like me, it's a good substitute:)

    Melf's Homemade Mixed Nuts

    Ingredients:
    Almonds
    Brazils
    Cashews
    Pecans
    Walnuts
    etc...

    Buy some bags of them, raw and shelled and in the store. Mix them all together on a tray and sprinke some vegetable oil over them, then sprinkle salt over them, as much as you'd like. Bake them for 10 minutes or so. If you can get it just right then they taste fantastic; so much better than the ones you can buy from the store. Otherwise you'll wind up with burnt or really dry nuts. This one takes a bit of practice to get right, but if you can get it right I guarantee they'll be the best nuts you've ever tasted.

    I've also got a recipe for a pineapple cherry crumbly cake, if I can find it I'll post it...
     
  5. speaking of bananas, cut up a few (either bananas or plantanes) and sautee them (in a stainless steel pan, preferrably) in some butter, white and brown sugar and a few drops of vanilla extract til tender.

    once almost ready add a shot of dark rum to the pan and set ablaze with burner flame, match or lighter. make sure all the alcohol evaporates.

    serve over vanilla ice cream and sprinkle with chopped candied pecans.
     
  6. How bout some peanut butter on Eggo waffles? That's some good eats right there, and a good amount of protein.

    Try putting milk, honey and coconut milk on your oatmeal.

    The next step is cinnamon.


    Also try getting vanilla ice cream and a good strawberry soda. Put the ice cream in a glass ano pour the soda over it. Good stuff.

    Place said weiner on tortilla, lay cheese on sides of weiner(if you put them on the weiner, said chese will not melt). nuke for 22 seconds, cool for 2, wrap, and enjoy.

    One of my favorite snackables is a Peanut Butter, banana, nutella sandwich....toast if desired.

    I also really dig putting avocado on pizza, or Jalapenos.

    Something we make in my dorm a lot is quesadillas and nachos.

    corn tortillas, jalapeno jack cheese, hot sauce, sometimes jalepenos.

    and simple nachos, grated Jalepeno jack cheese with chips.

    then there are old favorites

    pineapples and Cottage cheese.

    and the best Guacamole ever....and also the simplest ever.

    Avocado
    Spike Multiseasoning
    lime
    combine these ingredients into a mushy paste and eat with chips, and/or salsa if desired.

    melted chocolate is great for dipping fruits and berries into

    cheese melted into Ramen noodles is pretty happenings too

    that's about all I can think of....for me snacks are simple, rarely more than 3 ingredients. it's all about ease and taste.

    I call this beast the 1PM breakfast:

    -> Cook some bacon, 3-4 rashers works well.
    -> Slighty toast both halfs of a fairly large bread bun
    -> Grate some cheese and apply to the warm bun/place a chees eslice in it
    -> Place the bacon in, and allow a minute to melt the cheese
    -> Pour in plenty of barbeque sauce
    -> Wait for 1-3 minutes t let teh sauce warm up

    Good stuff! :D

    I presume you are talking about Indian Sweets as not all Indian food is sweet!

    I really love these - although you can't eat too many as they are very rich - the main ingredients are sugar and condensed milk!!

    I think he meant "sweet" as in "good", not sweet to the taste, Bruce.

    Try the cream cheese and celery with olives on top , that is some serious eaten.:)
     
  20. yeah...that is good. i don't like green olives though. i just never got used to them, i guess.

    as i mentioned in another thread a while ago, dip Nutter Butter cookies in salsa. it's amazing. also, if you ever get dominos cinna-sticks, dip your pizza crusts in the icing that comes with them.
