I love to eat. One way to get to eat good food is to be able to cook it yourself. I do a lot of cooking in the house. One of my favorite things to say about the best things I cook is ?That?s good enough for a restaurant? The sad part is that we are spoiled and find that we can eat better at home, and for a lot less money. Each time we think we want to splurge and let someone else do the cooking, we end up saying that we could have had a better meal at home. The only exceptions have been when we eat at our local Carrabba?s ( our Carrabba?s is one of the very best in the chain of Carrabba?s). When we get to Orlando we eat at a Macaroni?s Grill. One of my goals is to make some of my favorite Carrabba?s recipes. I did that today with the Chicken Marsala. (Good enough for a restaurant) We made enough for a family of 4 for less than $20. That included the garlic mashed potatoes, and a vegetable.
Ok, so there is one other reason to eat out, even if the food is only so-so. Nobody likes to clean the kitchen after having a great dinner. So we do go out when time is limited, or we just don?t want to mess-up, or heat-up the kitchen.
Most of my cooking is done off the cuff. I don?t write anything down, and I don?t measure anything. The problem with that is when I try to share my recipes.
I find that some things are better to gauge by circumstance. If I make salsa, I judge the salt and onion by the amount of tomatoes, and how ripe they are. The only rule for cilantro is to use a lot, and for HOT, I use a Habanera pepper sauce. It lets me control how hot the salsa will be with great accuracy. I stopped using fresh peppers a long time ago.
So much food, so little time.
