Cooking With Dogslug


sparklingblackgel:

OKAY SO.  dogslug and I have been leveling a pair of Draenei paladins and RPing them over the last couple of days, Gaarius (mine) and Dahaan (Slug’s).  After a hard day of training, they retreated to Gaarius’s apartment and while Dahaan took a bath, Gaarius scoured the cupboards for something to eat.

The apartment’s stewardship was passed on to him by a friend, and he hasn’t had the time to furnish it or buy any food, so in the cupboards, he found only a handful of cans.  I wasn’t even thinking about it, just typed three random things that he found and made a stew out of: a can of savory beans, a can of mixed vegetables, and a can of fish in tomato sauce.  He just threw it all in a pot and heated it up.

The more I thought about it, the more I wondered what it might taste like, so out of curiosity, tonight fishadee and I stopped by the store on my way home from work and picked up the exact cans I was imagining, the only difference being that store here doesn’t have mackerel in tomato sauce like they did in Florida, so I remedied this by getting a plain can of mackerel in a brine and a small can of tomato sauce.

I didn’t drain any of the cans; just dumped them all together.  I did gently skim the fat out of the can of mackerel, however.  As you can see, it didn’t look very good at first.  But I mixed it together, heated it up, and…

Well, maybe Gaarius was onto something.  It was quite salty but very tasty and extremely filling.  I had only a packet of crackers for breakfast, no lunch, and when I ate this tonight I was overstuffed after two bowls, and there was still at least two more servings left.

GAARIUS’S EMPTY CUPBOARD STEW

  • 1 14.5 oz can of mixed vegetable medley (with potatoes was good)
  • 1 8 oz can of Contadina tomato sauce
  • 1 15 oz can of Chicken of the Sea chub mackerel in brine
  • 1 15.5 oz can of Bush’s Chili Magic beans (I wanted to just buy Ranch beans but they didn’t have any)

Dump together.  Gently break up the mackerel into bite sizes as it heats.  There will be the occasional small, soft fish bone, so be warned about that.  Not that you’d choke on them but I know some folks don’t like the texture.  Bring to a simmer.  Serve with bread or rice, if desired, to make it stretch among more people.

Sharing this because it was a silly, fun recipe spawned out of an RP scene, but also because it was extremely cheap and very filling, for those of you who are on really limited budgets.  Because of how salty it was, you could even add water to make it stretch further.

A NYC grad student working on food stamps for her thesis has released a free cookbook for those living on $4/day.

SIG NAL BOO OO OO OOOST

hello

oooooh this is so nice!

I believe it’s important to eat well, even when you’re strapped for cash. It’s good for your health and energy! This cookbook is full of delicious and healthy recipes, the ingredients of which are fairly inexpensive.

I ACKNOWLEDGE THIS WOMAN AS A FELLOW WARRIOR AND A FANTASTIC HUMAN BEING. 

Boost so hard. Feeding yourself well is a challenge when you”ve got little income

We bought a copy of this for ourselves and donated one to someone who might need it.  They offer a great bulk pricing too for non-profits so our fellowship is going to take up a donation for an order and give them out when we do one of our mobile food pantry drives.  It’s a great idea the wife came up with.

CEVICHE AND NOT GIVING A FUCK ABOUT FLAMES.

fuckingrecipes:

THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO COOK A FOOD - WITH HEAT AND WITH ACID. 

HEAT IS OBVIOUS, WE ALL REMEMBER CROUCHING AROUND A CAMPFIRE, SPIT-ROASTING SMALL WOODLAND CREATURES WHILE KEEPING WATCH FOR FLESH-HUNGRY WOLVES IN THE DISTANCE DURING OUR WARRIOR TRAINING.

ACID, THOUGH. PUT ON YOUR THINKING CAP!

WHAT DO WE DO WHEN WE COOK MEAT WITH HEAT? WELL, THE FLAMES FUCK UP THE MUSCLE PROTEINS, AND WE END UP WITH DENATURED FLESH!

YOU KNOW WHAT ACID DOES TO PROTEINS? IT FUCKING DENATURES THEM,  LOOK AT THAT CHEMISTRY BULLSHIT!

HOT DAMN!

EVER HEARD OF CEVICHE? IT’S GODDAMN DELICIOUS.

TAKE A BUNCH OF SCALLOPS, RINSE THOSE FUCKERS OFF, CHOP THEM INTO TEENY TINY NIBLETS, THEN DROWN THEM IN LIME JUICE UNTIL THEY’RE TOTALLY IMMERSED.

LET THEM SIT FOR 3 HOURS IN A FRIDGE IN A COVERED CONTAINER, WALLOWING IN THEIR CITRUS DREAMS.

THEY’LL BE COOKED WITH THE FURY AND PAIN  OF ACID.

NOT WITH HEAT, BUT WITH FUCKING ACID. 

AFTER THAT, YOU CAN CHOP GREEN ONIONS, BELL PEPPERS, CARROTS, CELERY AND TOMATOES... MAKE SURE THE RATIO IS ABOUT 1/4 SCALLOPS, AND 3/4 EVERYTHING ELSE. 

IM GIVING YOU A RATIO BECAUSE I’M USED TO MAKING A RIDICULOUSLY MASSIVE BATCH OF THIS SHIT, AND I DON’T THINK YOU INTEND TO HAVE 7+ PEOPLE AT YOUR DISPOSAL.

MIX IT UP WITH A DRIZZLE OF OLIVE OIL, SOME CRUSHED BLACK PEPPER, SALT, HALF OF THE LIME JUICE AND A SPRIG OR THREE OF FINELY-DICED CILANTRO.

THAT SHIT’S DELICIOUS AS FUCK.  

IF YOU WANT TO BE EXTRA-FANCY, SERVE IT IN A GODDAMN ELEGANT-ASS GLASS BOWL TO SHOW OFF HOW COLORFUL YOUR CREATION REALLY IS!
