    Alright, post pictures of what you made last night and stuffed into those bloated, fatty monstrosities you call stomachs. You’ll get some street cred if it actually looks good and if you also link/post the recipe.

    Salmon from this recipe along with some homemade mashed potatoes and asparagus. The asparagus got a little over cooked because my girlfriend doesn’t know what bright green looks like.

    I made me a goddamn pie. Puff pastry stuffed with roast butternut squash, onions, leeks and garlic, swimming in cashew cream and a handful of fresh herbs from the plants I'm growing on my kitchen window.

    Thanks man! I've been able to bake well enough to get stuff that has flavor and texture right for a while, but lately I've been trying to up my decorating game a bit. Execution's always been sort of sloppy, and the more cooking shows I watch the more I feel like I should correct that. Managed to grab a copy of this at a local used book sale for $1 recently, and I'm slowly working through the 'finishing techniques' section in the back, trying anything I haven't done before.

    That's not a bad guide. Mirror Glaze is a more modern technique tbh. But still, well executed. I'm not an expert at it myself. I bake as a hobby.

    Grilled Pork Tenderloin with a Spicy Brown Sugar Rub

    Cup and a half ish of brown sugar
    Cayenne Pepper
    Garlic Salt
    Black Pepper
    Coriander

    Mix cayenne into brown sugar with a fork or whisk until it has a decent, but very noticeable kick. Not enough to knock you on your ass. Add a dash of garlic salt to taste. Add a dash of black pepper. Add coriander so it can just be smelled and tasted. Mix and then rub on the meat 10 mins before cooking. Cook on a high heat, hot grill for five minutes on two sides and then another minute to sear the other two. Cook for another 10 to 15 on low/med-low, turning every five minutes until pork is done. Don’t make test cuts until meat is nearly done, or it will dry it out.

    One of these, uuh, loins, is enough for two people.

    If you ever feel like changing it up one day consider:


    Tastes super good and not too different to what you're making already.

    Meal prepping just isn't appealing to me because I don't think I could eat the same thing every day. It also helps that I'm not so busy that I can't cook every day.

    Yeah this was in anticipation of a hectic week at work and an attempt to avoid fast food to compensate.

    On recommendation from my sister, I made Shaksuka (eggs baked/poached in an extra spicy tomato sauce with tomato/onion/peppers/stuff) last night. Eggs as the main protein dinner course has never really appealed to me before outside the occasional trip to a diner or an all day breakfasty place, but yeah, it blew my mind.

    Anyone have any other interesting "eggs for dinner" recipes?

    I personally can’t stand shakshuka, but I can’t really think of anything that is specifically eggs for dinner, except maybe quiche? That’s the only thing that is mostly egg.

    I mean, you can put eggs in ramen, on a burger, or on a steak, but that’s not really “eggs as the main course”

    My parents used to do omelettes when we were young and pressed for time in-between all those extracurricular activities. What I like about omelette is that you can easily add and change what goes into it. Some fresh tomato, basil and pepper is one of my favorite on a hot day, whereas my morning omelette would include cheese, onion and sausages. :)
