You writing a book or something?

I wouldn't mind a NYYFans cookbook of sorts. I've already asked someone that is interested in cooking that is a Yankee fan if he'd open a NYYFans cookbook thread.

He wasn't interested. :(

We got WRECKED at my friend's penthouse apartment, and then staggered out to the bar, where amongst everything else hilarious that happened, I ended up grabbing the soda gun and getting into a water fight with the bartenders.

I'm not in school anymore. I graduated in December, and I didn't live in traditional dorms. We had apartments, so I cooked for myself since we had a full kitchen.

I'm at home and my mom had the day off, so that's what she cooked for dinner. Normally, we all just cook for ourselves during the week.

I totally forgot (again) that you graduated. Boy, I'm getting senile at an earlier age. :o :(

I was a semi-vegetarian for today, less the deli meat I'd inserted between two slices of bread. Some nice green leaf lettuce, shiitake (spl?) mushrooms, plum tomatoes. Sometimes I should just go veggie for a whole day.

MMMMMM, sounds yummy Ally! I made beef stew yesterday. Not sure what I'm making tonight, since I will be out of the house pretty much all afternoon until about 6pm. I don't have a crock pot.:( I'll have to make something thats either ready in the oven on time bake, or quick to prepare when I get home. Of course if my hubby gets home before me he'll start cooking whatever I leave out for him, but I never know when he'll be getting home.

I'm thinking about having Pastrami from the Carnegie Deli & Restaurant for the Super Bowl.

hey, what IS pastrami exactly? I mean, i know what it IS b/c i've been eating it my whole life and I had it last night. But what's it made OUT of? And is it really bad for you? Because last night I had a pastrami sandwhich at work and someone said to me it was really unhealthy.

Also, isn't it annoying when people tell you how unhealthy your food is? I don't stop outside of every bar in NYC and lecture all the smokers on how unhealthy smoking is.

Pastrami is corned beef that has been pickled then smoked then peppered. And corned beef is beef that has been pickled. So basically, pastrami is pickled, pickled beef.

Chuck E. Cheese must make all their money on the food. What a gyp.
We had 3 personal pizzas, 1 salad bar, 1 ham and cheese sandwich and 5 sodas. It came to 42 friggin dollars. Then we had to buy tokens. Well, we got 12 free with the food. But the tokens weren't as big a rip-off...everything only cost 1 token, so they lasted awhile.

At least the salad bar was all you can eat. It was pretty tasty too.

This is a Bobby Flay recipie from Food Network. I have made this a few times, and it is fantastic! Even my kids ate it...very moist, and excellent for sandwiches the next day (if it lasts that long). I usually tweek recipies, but this one needs no tweeking.

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large zucchini, finely diced
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
1 yellow pepper, finely diced
5 cloves garlic, smashed to a paste with coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, divided
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves, plus more for garnish
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 pound ground veal
1 pound ground beef chuck
1 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated Romano or Parmesan
1 cup ketchup, divided
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Heat the oil in a large saute pan over high heat. Add the zucchini, peppers, garlic paste, 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper, to taste, and cook until almost soft, 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Whisk together the eggs and herbs in a large bowl. Add the meat, bread crumbs, cheese, 1/2 cup of the ketchup, 2 tablespoons of the balsamic vinegar, and the cooled vegetables and mix until just combined. Mold the meatloaf on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Whisk together the remaining ketchup, balsamic vinegar, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Brush the mixture over the entire loaf. Bake the meatloaf for 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing.

1/2 cup Ketchup.
1 onion, chopped.
A little salt, oregano and garlic powder, maybe a touch of Rosemary.

I'm home now....Here it is!

Boston Market Meatloaf

1 cup tomato sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons Kraft original barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin (10% fat)
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
dash garlic powder
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Combine the tomato sauce, barbecue sauce and sugar in a small saucepan
over medium heat. Heat the mixture until it begins to bubble, stirring
often, then remove it from the heat.
3. In a large bowl, add all but 2 tablespoons of the tomato sauce to the
meat. Use a large wooden spoon or your hands to work the sauce into the
meat until it is very well combined.
4. Combine the remaining ingredients with the ground sirloin-- flour, salt,
onion powder and ground pepper. Use the wooden spoon or your hands to
work the spices and flour into the meat.
5. Load the meat into a loaf pan (preferably a meatloaf pan with two
sections which allows the fat to drain, but if you don't have one of
those a regular loaf pan will work). Wrap foil over the pan and
place it into the oven for 30 minutes.
6. After 30 minutes, take the meatloaf from the oven, remove the foil and,
if you aren't using a meatloaf pan, drain the fat.
7. Using a knife, slice the meatloaf all the way through into 8 slices
while it is still in the pan. This will help to cook the center of the
meatloaf. Pour the remaining 2 tablespoons of sauce over the top of
the meatloaf, in a stream down the center. Don't spread the sauce.
8. Place the meatloaf back into the oven, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes or
until it is done. Remove and allow it to cool for a few minutes before
serving.
Serves 4.

My meatloaf: (actually, it's a variation on the devil, Martha Stewart's, recipe:lol: )

4 slices white bread, torn into pieces
2 1/2 pounds ground round
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and cut into eighths
2 cloves garlic
parsley ( I just sprinkle some in )
1 large egg
1 cup ketchup (divided--1/2 cup and 1/2 cup)
3 teaspoons dried mustard (divided 2 tsp and 1 tsp)
About a tsp of salt
About a half tsp of pepper
2 tablespoons brown sugar

1. Heat oven to 375. Place bread in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade; pulse until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a medium bowl and add the ground beef.

2. Place onion and garlic in the food processor bowl and pulse until fine. Add to meat mixture. Add egg, 1/2 cup ketchup, 2 tsps dry mustard, salt pepper and parsley. Combine thoroughly. Place in a loaf pan. **I don't use a loaf pan myself...I don't like the meatloaf sitting in all that fat. I form a loaf and bake it in a baking pan.

3. Combine remaining 1/2 cup ketchup, remaining tsp of dry mustard, and the brown sugar in a small bowl. Stir until smooth.

4. Spread mixture over meatloaf. Place in oven and cook until a meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 160, about 90 minutes. If top gets too dark, cover with foil and continue baking.

It's really delicious. It's even better the next day on sandwiches.

It went good too! I didn't have time to make the cheesecake, but the parmesan chicken and potatoes went very well. I already have my mom's cookbook now- it's actually kind of cool!

Excellent! Did your mom write down recipes for you or is it a cookbook she always used?

I have a few cookbooks, but my favorite one is the Better Homes and Gardens one when I feel like making something different.

Using what recipe? I need more crockpot ideas.

It's from FlyLady (www.flylady.net (http://www.flylady.net)) and here it is:

Crock Pot Gingered Beef


Serves 6 2 pounds round roast, trimmed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 each onions -- sliced
1 cup dry red wine
1/2 cup ketchup
6 tablespoons light brown sugar
3 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
4 cloves garlic -- pressed
1/2 cup beef broth
salt and pepper -- to taste

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and brown roast on all sides.

In the bottom of your crockpot, place the sliced onions first, then the browned roast.

Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over roast; cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or until meat is fork tender and can be shredded with a fork.

Pour cooking juices into a sauce pan and simmer on the stove until reduced, about 10 minutes. Serve sauce over the top of the beef.

Ally, that recipe sounds yummy!
I have been using fresh ginger lately. I think that would be a good substitute for the powdered ginger.

I was going to make some New York steaks yesterday, but because of Jenn, I thought it would be better to hold-off until today.

One and a quarter inch cut NY steaks - lightly seasoned just right. Figure I'll make some steak fries to go along with them today, and also have some green beans. :)

WE're having meatloaf (the recipe I had posted a few pages back). Potatoes are boiling for mashed potatoes (I throw in a whole onion and mash it with the potoatoes, it gives it a delicious extra oomph). I also made a pot of chicken soup because my older daughter has a cold.

I also baked an apple pie.

I can't wait.:D

I'm kinda rushing the sauce though. I thought I had some frozen homemade sauce and I don't. I can't even cheat with a jar, so I'm cooking it as best I can in a short time.
