Low-fat, high-in-bioflavinoids chocolate truffles (from a Prevention Magazine Recipe)

2/3 cup of non-fat 1/2 and 1/2
4 oz bar of 60% cocoa dark chocolate
4 green tea bags
Sugar-free cocoa

Chop up the chocolate and put it in a bowl.

Simmer the 1/2 and 1/2, steep the tea bags in in for 5 minutes, then remove tea bags. Simmer again.

Pour the 1/2 and 1/2 into the bowl with the chocolate, then mix until smooth.

Put the bowl in the freezer for 10 minutes, stir every two minutes until it is at a good consistency.

Put the sugar-free cocoa in a shallow bowl. Take a tea-spoon of the chocolate mix, roll it into a ball, dust in the cocoa, repeat.

Makes about 20.

Frozen Egg noodles?

What sort of extras do you have on hand?

You could cook the noodles while chopping up the chicken into bite size pieces and then frying them in olive oil with lemon pepper seasoning. Add to the noodles (drained) and have a veggie on the side.

I made veggie Hot Corn Soup for the Punk and Liliharas last Wednesday:

2 cans of sweetcorn
2 medium onions (or 1 big)
1 garlic clove
30g butter or oil (original recipe says chili or garlic oil)
25g flour (I didn't measure the last two ingredients, just wing it)
1 litre vegetable stock
125 ml single cream
1 red chilli pepper
chives
salt
lemon juice

Drain the sweetcorn. Finely chop the onion(s) and garlic and lightly fry in the butter or oil. Dust with flour, add the stock and cream and bring to boil. Add 1 can of corn, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, then puree the whole thing. Chop the chilli finely, add with the other can of corn and simmer for a further 5 minutes. Season with salt and lemon juice, sprinkle with chopped chives for added colour and serve hot in autumn/winter or chilled in summer.

N.B.: our onion was chopped a little less finely, which gives a little extra crunchiness we rather liked. And due to lack of a proper Magimix, we simply pureed one can of corn by itself before adding it to the stock and cream. Works just as well.
I ended up adding a little extra chilli powder to my own bowl, because I like it hot! Big Grin

I said to my mum that I would help her cook a turkey for Thanksgiving - a culinary adventure for both of us, as neither have ever cooked such a thing before!

Do any of you guys have good recipes that you might share? Even the most basic principles of meat-cooking would be most enlightening. Big Grin

Would this recipe for beer can chicken (fun! And sacriligeous!) be suitable for a turkey instead?

Might be worth a try...
You'd need one hell of a beer can, though - the, erm, opening is much larger on a turkey than on a chicken.

This is one of the best roast turkey recipes I've ever had. The brining means you have to start working on it the night before, but it really makes a difference in the juicyness and flavor of the cooked bird.

The beer can chicken probably wouldn't work because you have to stand the chicken on end and I have never seen a non-industrial oven that would be big enough to do that with a turkey. It's really yummy for chicken though.

My uncle does a fried turkey at his New Year's Eve party. It is SOOOOO yummy. I wish we've been able to go for the past few years, but it's too late for the kids. Maybe in a couple years...

We do have a friend who doesn't do anything on New Year's Eve. I'm thinking maybe this year they can babysit for us.

Well, we eat fried chicken wings, and that's dark meat, sort of gamier than regular poultry.

Of course, we also eat deep-fried cheese, so . . .

Ah yes, the legendary deep-fried anythings... sadly, a lot of them really do exist:
Turkey, Oreos and Snickers are just the start!
Or how about that Scottish clichée, the deep-fried Mars bar?

Go to the Minnesota state fair! There was a board meat there a few years back, one of whose purposes was the sampling of such things (also fried cheese curds- nom)

Does anybody have any suggestions for chana masala?

This recipe has had the best results for me so far - it's the right color, and it smells right - but it still doesn't taste quite right and I'm not sure how to tweak it to fix that problem.




inagreyplace + colour theory.
