Subject: BS: Urgently Needed! Recipe for Toast!
From: Bee-dubya-ell
Date: 21 Jan 04 - 06:28 PM

There always seem to be recipe threads going - bread, chili, cornbread etc. - but some of us never get to post to them because our cooking skills are on a par with Mike Tyson's social skills.   

Wanna see my recipe for chili? "Open can, pour into bowl, microwave for 3 minutes." I can't put that on a recipe thread. But I can put it on this thread!

Anyway, the title of the thread is somewhat misleading. You may post a recipe for toast if you really wanna, but it's not limited to toast by any means. Other stuff any dope can make will work just as well.   We need recipes for boiled eggs, bologna sandwiches, Cheez-Whiz on a Ritz, Vienna sausage... The list is endless. No recipe is too mundane.

Non-cookers, this is your thread. Make the most of it!

When I was a teenager: open a can of Campbell's chicken & rice soup. Skim off fat. Eat soup with a spoon. No cooking, no washing up (except the spoon) and no time wasted heating it.

Boil pasta in salted water until it doesn't crunch. Drain, and stir in Cheeze Whiz. (For anyone who's unfamiliar with this, it's a cheese-like food-like product in a jar.)

My favourite simple breakfast item is what our family used to call Toad in the Hole. Butter a slice of bread on both sides. Carefully cut a square about 1 + 1/2 inches in centre of bread slice, i.e. making a square hole in the centre of the slice. Keep the cut-out square. You'll need that to mop up the plate when you have finished the egg.

Heat a frying pan on medium heat - not too high - and add about a tablespoon of cooking oil - I use olive oil - or butter. Wait a couple of minutes for the pan to heat up a bit. Get an egg and put it handy because the next bit is about timing, to some extent.

Place the slice and the small square of bread into the pan, and quickly break the egg into the hole in the bread. Let it cook for a few minutes and check if it is done enough on that side by gently lifting a corner of the bread up to see if it is browning slightly. If so, use an egg flip to turn it over, as well as the small square. Wait another minute or so, check the underside, and lift it out when the egg is soft or hard enough to your liking.

If the egg sticks a bit just make sure that next time you put the bread slice in a part of the pan with a good amount of oil or butter, or if you have to, put a little bit more oil/butter in the centre of the hole before breaking the egg in.

I put cranberry sauce on it but any sauce is good.

This goes really well with bacon, or fried tomatoes. I don't like fried eggs as much when they are fried on their own without the bread.

Egg noodles might be okay in five minutes, but spaghetti takes a little longer. Those of us without teeth always have trouble with that "al dente" bit, so the "refrigerator test" is essential knowledge. Throw a string of spaghetti up against the refrigerator. If it sticks, the stuff is done. If you can't hit the refrigerator, turn the heat off and go finish your beer.

Helen, your "toad in the hole" was always called "Canadian egg" by my somewhat eccentric Mother. She had a way of cooking that made maximum use of the frying pan, and gave her creations titles like "Mexican hab-dab" which consisted of anything that was handy and could reasonably (or sometimes not) be fried.
Real "toad in the hole" (sausage in Yorkshire pudding) did not fall into the fry-able category and so it was many years later before I discovered it.
Another favourite was "Eggy bread", crack eggs into bowl, bash them about, dip slice of bread into mix and FRY. This was considered a wholesome meal in our house. When there was no bread or eggs left she was known to fry a mixture of flour and water, which she described as a "flap-jack". I can still taste the flour.
I do still occassionally make "Canadian egg" (my daughter loves it but I only make it when her Mother's out) in honour of my dear departed Mother, whose contribution to haute-cuisine is only rivalled by her services to the lard industry.

me, I'm gooormay of them frozen burritos what can be microwaved in 2 minutes. It's best to get a GOOD brand..(Trader Joe's, if you have one of those stores around...and Patio if you're desparate.)

Lay burrito on paper plate, zap for 44 seconds...turn over, repeat...turn over again..till it's hot enuf for ya. (why 44 secs.? because it's EASIER...55 secs for some things..111 for others...see?)

lay on a dollop of some decent brand of ersatz Mexican condiment(I like green chili sauce a lot, or La Victoria 'Salsa Superior') and eat...

(Oh..most of the brands of sauces brag about how 'chunky' they are!..Blech! I like 'em uniform, and I give each new bottle 10 seconds in the blender!)

I had a boss who used to eat hot dogs rolled up in tortillas. This was before 'wrap' sandwiches became popular.

C-Flat's 'eggy bread' is what we USians refer to as 'French toast'. Add butter and maple syrup.

If you like eggs 'over easy' but you think 'easy' isn't, turn the heat down and put a pan lid, just barely big enough to fit over them, over them.

Omelets are pretty much no-brainers. I like cheese omelets with good salsa slathered over them. You can make 'leftover' omelets too. If the folding part's too much of a pain, just mix everything in and make scrambled whatever. Don't try using portabella mushrooms, they turn everything brown. Tastes good, but it looks an unfortunate accident in your pans.

1) Open tin of Chef Boyardee Ravioli. Eat.

2) Open tin of Heinz beans. Eat.

3) A good thing for people what don't Cordon Bleu cook is this.

Boil noodles. Boil some ground beef. Drain both noodles and beef. Add can Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup--for the challenged, add the contents of the can. Bit of milk. Mix well. Will do for two meals. Eat. If your food laws prevent you from mixing milk and meat, omit the milk. However, I think there may be some in the mushroom soup. So, leave that out too. If this seems too difficult for one reason or the other, see 1, 2), and 4).

4) Peanut butter, banana, jam and lettuce. Put between two slices of bread. Eat.

The key is the last word: eat.

A little thread creep: In the military, before there were Meals, Ready to Eat (MREs), there were C-Rations in cans. There are official ways to heat up both types of meal, but I don't believe people ever used them. We just ate 'em cold or found creative ways of heating them up.

I used to work on generators. Big, jet-fuel fueled, jet engine driven suckers with the exhausts facing skyward. Folks used to open cans a bit, set them on the edge of the exhaust and pull 'em off with tongs when they got hot. (Usually in a matter of seconds.) I was out in the Mohave desert once, and the guys explained how to do this to a young officer. Unfortunately, they forgot the part about opening the can a bit. I had to help clean up the aftermath of the spaghetti-and-meatballs bomb.

Speaking of frying eggs- there's a combination of frying and poaching I like that I grew up with.   Break the egg(s) into the pan and add just a bit of water then cover. It steams into an tasty over-easy egg that doesn't stick to the pan.

Ebbie...an elegant offshot to the fry/poach approach to eggs. Oil pan, crack eggs into hot oil, let cook over med. heat for a min. or so, then add 1-3 tablesppons white wine, cover tightly and either cook for a minute or more over low heat, or turn off and leave 5 min. Take off lid, sprinkle well set eggs with copious amounts of parmesan cheese. The heat from eggs will melt cheese slightly, or for a fancy touch, brown cheese under broiler for a few seconds.

The broiler is also an excellent tool for those that aren't adept at flipping omelets (Yo!). Cook omelet mixture on top of stove over low/med. heat until throroughly set, then finish off under broiler...takes about another minute. And the omelet comes out puffy and browned (and round...it's much too pretty to fold over).

For no muss, boiled eggs are the best...boil for 5 minutes, then let set for 20. Peel and eat out of hand, squirting honey mustard on each bite--sort of deviled eggs a go go.

For really no muss snacking you cant beat microwave popcorn. I like the cheaper store brands better than expensive Orville and you can eat it right out of the bag.

White wine? Did Mudlark say, "White wine?" I beg your pardon, but we'll have none of that on this thread! Get on over to one of the real cooking threads if you're gonna use white wine! On this thread we use things like mayonnaise. And I don't mean that in the French sense. I mean it in the Kraft or Hellman's sense.

Buy a one-pound package of bologna from the "reduced for quick sale" bin at the grocery store. Prepare three hard-boiled eggs using Mary in Kentucky's recipe above. Dice bologna and eggs. (Dicing means cut it up into little pieces.) Throw 'em in a bowl and add enough mayonnaise to make everything stick together. Add any or all of the following depending on yer taste buds: prepared mustard, sweet pickle relish or salad cubes, dill pickle relish, chopped fresh onions, chopped olives, minced garlic. (Do NOT add white wine.) Spoon a glob of it onto bread or toast (see Sorcha's recipe above) and eat.

I was shown 'Aussie AJ" cooking method once - the cans are slammed unopened into a rock or log twice, so that there are large dents, then thrown into the fire. When the first dent pops out, you have until just after the second one pops to get the can out of the fire, else RUN AWAY! Leave can sit for a few minutes, then open carefully to avoid steam burns...

Iced Tea

Fill quart-sized fruit jar half way with tap water. Put in microwave and nuke for several minutes. Add 2 Lipton tea bags. When you're tired of waiting, take the bags out and fill the jar up to the top with tap water.

If you want Southern Sweet Tea, add ~1 cup of sugar while still hot.

We used to open the c-rats cans a bit, prop 'em up on rocks or something, put a ball of C-4 explosive about as big as the end of your thumb under 'em, light the C-4 (it burns hotly, but doesn't explode without a blasting cap), and when it went out a few seconds later the c-rats were nicely hot.

Cook spaghetti for a while or until you think it's done. Drain off the water. Serve with Out Sauce or with tomato catsup (or ketchup). Or with a dollop of butter or margarine. If you want to be fancy sprinkle some dried parsley on it.

Desserts. Desserts haven't been mentioned. Bakeries were created so you wouldn't have to make desserts. But if you want to impress people, buy some of those round cream puffs. Put one of them on a paper doily on a small saucer. Dribble chocolate sauce on it. This is called a "profiterole" in France and costs a bundle. Tell everyone it took just HOURS to make. And, of course, there's always ice cream. To impress 'em with ice cream, drizzle creme de menthe and creme de cacao over French vanilla ice cream.

Or just buy a pie and heat it up some.

PROPER WAY TO EAT TORTILLA CHIP CRUMBS

You know. You've been there too. You open a bag of tortilla chips. First you eat all the whole chips. Then you eat the broken chips in order of diminishing size until you're left with a bunch of little broken pieces that aren't worth the trouble. What to do?

Throw the chip crumbs into an bowl. Pour some salsa over them. Add an amount of sour cream roughly equal to the amount of salsa. Stir. Eat with a spoon before it gets too soggy.

If you happen to have had tacos the night before and have leftover refied beans or browned ground beef in the fridge, you can heat some up and throw it in the mix as well.

Also, if you have a container of sour cream with just a couple of ounces left in it, you can even eliminate the bowl by just mixing everything up in the sour cream container.

DISCLAIMER: The following discussion assumes that the reader makes tuna salad with real mayonnaise, not some artificial whipped crap. If you are a pseudo-naise user, you need read no further.

Tuna (not the "good" stuff like BillD uses, but the ordinary everyday stuff most of use) comes packed in water or packed in vegetable oil, right? So ya buy the tuna packed in water 'cause it's supposed to be healthier, right? Then ya, drain the water off and add mayonnaise to it when you make tuna salad, right? Well, what's mayonnaise? Mostly vegetable oil! Why drain water and add vegetable oil when ya coulda bought it with vegetable oil in the first place?

So, when this non-chef prepares tuna salad he uses one can of tuna in water, one can of tuna in oil, and about a third as much mayonnaise as he would if using tuna in water all the way. That's still enough mayonnaise to make it look creamy and white instead of transparent and anemic.

The only problem with this system is that there's only about an ounce of tuna water to give the cats and there are four of them to fight over it.

I saw an egg explosion happen one time. It was amazing. A woman had put two eggs into the microwave in the break room at work. The resulting BOOM! blew the microwave door open. Fortunately, nobody was hurt. Helluva mess though.

If you want to microwave eggs, be sure to pierce the yolk with a skewer first. This should prevent the explosion.

I microwave eggs all the time.

You can even buy a special "m/wave egg poacher" gadget. You put a little water and vinegar, the egg, pierce yolk, close lid and it takes a minute or so.

Scrambled eggs is easy - eggs should not be cooked on full power - same for cheese.

The yolk will explode if the membrane is not broken.

There is a m/wave variation on the "egg in hole in bread" thing.

You need 2 pieces of bread, one with the hole. Butter both slices, place whole slice butter up on plate, top with holey slice with butter down - this makes a seal - place egg in - break yolk, sprinkle sheese (no, will leave that typo!) over egg, any spices or salt, then top with small cutout piece butter side down, top with slice of cheese if desired, or use the sliced "cream cheese" stuff. Then zap for a minute or so until egg is sufficiently cooked. (Slightly runny is nice).

This can also be done on one of those sandwich maker things with a top and bottom plate, this sorta toasts the bread. Method is sufficiently similar that even you lot should be able to figure it out. Do not put any cheese externally on this one - you might try a cheese slice between the two bread slices before the egg goes in the hole.

You can also do this in those "snack maker" thingies that clamp the bread around the edges - this makes a good filling for them. You do NOT cut the hole - and you must put the butter, marg, or even spray oil/whatever on the OUTSIDE of the bread slices.

Drain the oil from tuna that comes in cans.

Someone very, very close to me -- someone with an IDENTICAL genetic pattern, in fact -- once made (instant) mashed potatoes and wanted to put creamed tuna on them. So some milk and margarine into a pan, add the tuna (and oil), heat, add some flour and stir like made until it thickens.

If it's not thick enough, add more flour. If you add enough flour it doesn't pour, so you add milk to thin it.

When the proportions of milk and flour are correct, pour it on the mashed and eat.

Something in this recipe makes the oil cause scours.

You also end up with a LOT of creamed tuna...a lot!

A very simple treat for the kids.

Spread a liberal amount of butter or margerine on one side of a piece of bread.

Place bread on counter (butter side up) and sprinkle liberally with sugar. 1/8 inch thick is probably excessive, but anything less is okay.

Sprinkle with ground cinnamon.

Place under broiler (butter side up) until edges of the bread start to brown.

Remove carefully. (Hot butter and sugar can stick and burn)

If you do it while warm, you can cut into squares - about 4 to 6 per bread slice, or eat a whole slice.

Eat while warm.

It may be nostalgia, but we only got this as kids when we'd been very good, hence it was a very rare treat.

The Secrets of Gravy Revealed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gravy is a sort of sauce that adds flavour, and can be filling and cheap. Good gravy can be a "pig out" "comfort food", especially if soaked up with bread.

Gravy is basically made with flour, that is mixed with a little water and then cooked slowly. The mixture then thickens. Keep stirring to prevent burning or "clagging".

There are lots of "packet mix gravies" out there, but the basic thing is so easy to make that you can tailor the type of flour (for allergies), the salt level, the thickness and the taste.

I learned to make gravy the classic way as a kid. We used to have a regular roast - usually beef, but also lamb, pork, or chicken. When cooked, the meat was placed on a plate. Before slicing, just cooked meat must be allowed to stand for 15 mins or so - this allows the moisture to redistribute itself, and makes the meat more tender, and easier to slice - the heat also keeps travelling inwards, and keeps cooking the inside. The gravy can be prepared while the standing takes place.

The oven tray/pan was then checked for juices - excess fat removed, a little water added if necessary, and placed on the stove top - GENTLE HEAT. A little flour was mixed with water, then added to the pan, and the mix stirred constantly over a low heat. The stirring is necessary as otherwise, it can burn or go lumpy.

The greater the amount of thickener added, the thicker the gravy. Too much and you end up with a dough - actually a "Roux" - the sort of thing you make some types of bread, buns and sauces from. But that's getting off the topic, although that is the "intertwingularity" of life.

You can add wheat flour, or really any other kind of plain flour, such as corn flour, probably even rice flour, but I personally have never used this, also arrowroot can also be used as a thickener, but some purists may not call that "gravy". You can also use those powdered or flaked style mashed potato. Gravy and mashed potato go well together. If absolutely desperate, "self raising" flour might be used, but it will froth and foam like a mad thing, possibly spilling over the pan, and you may find that the raising agent adds a taste, and affects saltiness.


Colour of Gravy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Paler colour gravy goes well with "whiter" meats like pork and veal, and possibly chicken. Darker colour gravy goes well with "red" meats like beef.

Normally the cooking residue at the bottom of the roast pan contains caramelised stuff that gives the brown colour, and some flavour. If making gravy without a roast, you can cook the flour a little longer, which will darken the gravy a little, or you can traditionally add "Gravy Browning" called "Parisian Essence". Other things can be added, even Marmite (OH NO! - it's another Marmite thread!).

For the "Pig Out With Bread" (you can use toast, but a thinner gravy soaks into toast easier) - I like a nice dark thick gravy. Very filling.


Flavour of Gravy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When prepared as above, the roasted meat juices add flavour. Without them, you can use "stock" - basically a thin soup - which you can get in various flavours as a prepared liquid or powder form - even the old "soup cubes". You can even find a multipack of the single serve type that you can get sauces in that you squeeze. You can add Bonox, (mixes easier than Marmite), or anything else that you prefer, soy sauce, Worschester, etc.

Just watch the salt content of your additives, you can get carried away.


Cooking with gravy.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Even KFC supply a "form" of gravy....

You can serve side dishes of veges such as peas, etc with mashed potato to spin out or cost cut. You can even cook for more than one this way.

Sausages and gravy.
Cook the sausages, place on plate, make gravy, replace sausages, warm them again, serve with side dishes of veges, etc.

Sliced meat and gravy.
We used to do this with the left over roast meat. The new batch of gravy (could use the batch made when the roast was served warmed up, if any left - but usually there wasn't!) would be made from scratch in a frypan, then the cold slices cut from the roast in the fridge warmed in the gravy. We used to add bread, green vegs, even mashed potato on the side. Very cheap, especially with a bowl of canned tomato or other soup, and very filling and satisfying on a cold evening.

Ribs and gravy.
Pork, beef, veal, etc "ribs" - some types of which in Oz may actually be closer to US "Pork belly" or stomach or skirt strips - which may actually have NO bones in at all. Brown meat slightly, make basic gravy, re-add meat and simmer gently until meat cooked. This sort of thing you can add vegetables to as well - you are getting close to a stew here. The trick is SLOW cooking for these cuts - close to braising. You can start with the meat straight from the freezer - just allow sufficient time to cook properly.

Chops and gravy - you get the idea.


A tip on the veges added to the mix while cooking ribs as per above: you can get "Dryslaw" which is the basic sliced/chopped ingredients for coleslaw without the white creamy sauce - for singles this is an effective cheapish way of buying small amounts of mixed vegetables that you can use before they go off. This stuff is in larger chunks than the size in the KFC "Coleslaw - well that's what they call it" stuff.

Most of these dishes can be prepared in a frypan, especially if you have some sort of lid/cover to keep the steam in while cooking slowly. Take the lid off until the gravy is well blended and cooked, then simmer gently with lid on if needed to cook other ingredients.

AND NOW...

My favourite....

Bread and Gravy.
Make the gravy, flavoured how you will, and either immerse the bread in the pan briefly - it will start to fall apart if left to long - or pour the gravy over the bread in the plate/dish, or place in bowl/cup and dip bread/toast. Filling and cheap.

Never had a problem with eggs exploding - but then I read the instructions... :_0 they call me "RTFM Robin" :-)

I never zap eggs on full power. I always leave them sit for a bit after finishing a couple of minutes - if you jiggle them that will provoke the explosion. RTFM.

It is the same with "superheating" water in the microwave. never had a problem. RTFM.

NEVER zap plain water for ANY longer than it really needs to get drinkably hot - you can SUPERHEAT water - and get hurt real bad! RTFM.

NEVER boil water, let it cool then reboil it in the m/wave - you have removed all the tiny dissolved particles of air, and the water will go ABOVE 100 deg Celcius and NOT BOIL!!!! - until you agitate it - or add sugar or coffee. Then it will explode out of the cup, right in your face. RTFM.

If making coffee, add the sugar, and even the instant coffee while cold and stir it. This will give the water some impurities to start to form bubbles around. I also add the milk before hand.

If making tea with a teabag in a cup/mug, don't overheat the water, take care when dropping in the teabag in case the water boils.

In response to Bee-dubya's sneer at white wine, I think Amos has a point. I know plonk in the UK is not dirt cheap, but here in the good ole U S of A...hello? Anybody tried Peter Vella in a box, 5 gal. or liters or whatever it is for $5. That's way cheaper than a lot of bottled water. And the point is not to EAT like trailer trash, but to COOK like trailer trash.

The grimest of wine will add a very good, not to say sophisticated, flavor to the most plebeian of canned goods, especially if allowed to simmer for a bit, cook down. Chef-Boyardee, Spaghetti-O's, the list is endless and includes all manner of canned beans as well. Added to F'troupe's gravies it gives them a touch of the sous chef, chablis for poultry, burgundy for red meats. And the red adds color to gravy as well, as does paprika. As the French say, presentation is all. White gravy tends to look like what it is...flour and water, which, in it's uncooked state, is known as library paste.

That is not to cast aspersions on F'stroupe's excellent paean to gravy. I agree with it entirely. Nothing like a mound of mashed potatoes (and I use the word mashed loosely...I smush mine up with an electric egg beater, using either a little of the potato water, or buttermilk if I have it), drenched in ANY kind of gravy.

I forgot to specifically mention the wine... but did mention "anything to taste" in additions... :-)

Wine snobs say "never cook with a wine that is not good enough to drink" - OK, but if you have a "Trailer Trash" palate... who cares?
;-)

You can actually add certain spirits and liquers while cooking.

And I forgot to mention "mince" as one of the categories of meat to add to the simmering gravy.

"White" gravy - with flavour from a stock matches better with pork cops, IMO. :-)

That Peter Vella wine is more like $13 for the five litres. I think that it actually keeps better in the bag in the box because air doesn't get into it. I usually buy a typical (750 litre) bottle of red wine, because I was told that to use it at it's best it should be finished in a week or less. I spoke with a liquor store guy tonight--even if it is a wine that is kept in the fridge, like a chardonay, it still has a practical life of about a week once the bottle is opened, he said. (I've had some around for a LOT longer than that--I guess I was cooking with vinegar!)

Robin, I didn't grow up around much gravy, only on rare meals like Thanksgiving for the smashed potatoes. We weren't much into it. (We do make turkey gravy these days for hot open-face turkey sandwiches.) But we loved French dip sandwiches so always kept the drippings from tender lean beef roasts and mixed in water and a little seasoning for the au jus.

Okay, you had to cook the roast--but it's easy. Stab it a few times with a knife tip, stuff in slices of garlic into those holes. Turn on the oven as hot as it will go without being on broil and let it heat completely. Put the roast in. Leave it on for 6 minutes per pound, then SHUT THE OVEN OFF and don't open the door and leave it like that for an hour. It's wonderful when it's done. If you want it less rare, do 7 min/pound.

Rapaire,

Yuck. All of that from oil, eh? I used to make a marvelous salad that consisted of cooked spinach, cooked garbanzo beans (chick peas) and tuna in oil from which the oil is not drained. The three are mixed and it was wonderful. I've experienced no such reaction as described, but this is the only occasion I can think of that I've used the oil.

There are instances when things submerged in oil without properly heating it all (like those decorative bottles with a few whisps of herb and some plump cloves of garlic in the bottom) have produced lethal amounts of salmonella.

Back to the regularly scheduled thread:

An easy drink for a cold winter's evening: Faux-mulled cider.

Put some apple juice or cider into a mug. Drop in a half-dozen or more cinnimon candies ("Red Hots") and heat in the microwave. Don't boil the juice, but get close. Stir it for a little while after it's hot and the candies will disolve into the juice.

Some cooking involved in this one, but not much:

Get a pack of dry Lipton chicken noodle soup. Open the pack and set the noodles in a measuring cup and the chunk of boullion in a bowl.

Add rice to your measuring cup until it is 2 cups of rice and noodles.

Heat a deep skillet or a dutch oven (it needs a tight lid), add a little olive oil, and brown a few pieces of skinless boneless chicken. Mix in the dry stuff and heat the pan a few minutes longer so it kind of toasts the dry stuff and it soaks up the grease and oil from the chicken.

Boil some water. Add four cups of it to the bowl with the boullion chunk and break up the boullion. Add this to the pan with rice and chicken, cover and simmer, and come back in about 30 minutes with your plate and a fork.

To make it into a fancy recipe, drain a 6 ounce can of mushrooms and add them when you add the water.

Boil the noodles and drain.   Sprinkle with Sesame Oil (better if you buy the "Hot" Sesame Oil). Add a bit of Soy Sauce and "some" or all of the spice packet. Stir this together and then add a blop of peanut butter. It takes a bit to work in the peanut butter but that's the end. If you like it hot and spicy, throw in crushed cayenne peppers. This stuff is amazingly good!!! I generally whip up 4 packs at a time and give a bowl each to the kids before I add the peppers. We all 3 have lunch for about a buck.

'Spaw, I've made full-fledged stir fry with ramen noodles. The trick is to cook them in water for only two of their three minutes. Drain them, and meanwhile have a skillet with whatever you wanted to slice or dice (I usually use green onions, mushrooms, garlic, carrots, and a little broccoli, all cut in about half-inch pieces, and add some canned shrimp or a little diced chicken). Stir fry until that stuff is ready, then at the last minute add the ramen and some soy sauce and stir it a few times.

You could use tahini if you don't have peanut butter for that ramen mix of yours (yeah, I know, like everyone has tahini and no one has peanut butter).

I'm an IT technician, and this is our department's signature recipe :


Technical Toast

Note – This procedure should only be attempted by a qualified Toast Technician.

You need :         Flat bread product (or flat bit sawed from chunk of bread), butter, topping

Also :        Some form of incineration device


Procedure :
Remove flat bread product from wrapper. Examine bread for foreign objects, green/while/blue areas & remove these where necessary. Random furry bits are not recommended for eating, and should also be removed. Ensure that butter is approaching room temperature. If it is rock-like, spreading it on your toast will be difficult - warm it first. You can nuke it (for a second or two - more will result in liquefication) if necessary.


Examine your chosen incineration device, and proceed accordingly -

If a toaster :
Plug in toaster, switch on at socket. If sparks & a nasty buzzing sound ensue, suspect inappropriate dampness and seek alternative incineration method. If rewarded by a lack of noise, or indeed anything else, insert flat bread into obvious bread-receiving slots on top (it will only go in a limited number of ways round - any of these are likely to be fairly successful) of toaster. Set brown-ness dial to a random number, and depress lever to lower bread. Ignore until bread goes "Spung!" and emerges ad high speed.

If a grill :
Turn on grill at "High". If it's a gas grill, do remember to light it, or the following steps will result in at best a lack of toast and a funny smell, and at worst the arrival of the fire brigade. Wait until the flames are nicely blue & flickery, or the elements are glowing beautifully red (if you manage the reverse, call me - you may have discovered something saleable). In the meantime, locate the grill-pan, or insert a suitably shaped bit of chicken-wire or other flat & holey object under the grill. Place the bread in the flat object & slide under the grill.

If a blowtorch :
Knock two 4" (or longer) nails about 1" into the wall. Impale bread on nails. Light blowtorch (avoiding ignition of curtains, sleeves, or other inflammable materials) and play flame evenly over bread until brown. Black is bad.

If a lighter :
Proceed as for Blowtorch. But note that this doesn't work…


Watch the bread in a hawk-like fashion for signs of incipient browning - a light summer suntan is ideal. Flabby February-fishbelly-white is not ideal - keep watching. Charcoal is also not ideal - this state arrives earlier than expected. (Either eat it for the sake of good digestive health, or us it as missiles to annoy the pigeons.) If only one side appears to be crispy and coloured, this is probably due to your choice of incineration device - turn the bread over and repeat the process.

8.) Two calcium carbonate-encapsulated avian albumen-coated protein ovoids
9.) 473.2 cm3 theobroma cacao
10.) 236 cm3 de-encapsulated legume meats (sieve size #10)

To a 2-L jacketed round reactor vessel (reactor #1) with an overall heat transfer coefficient of about 100 BTU/F-ft2-hr, add ingredients one, two, and three with constant agitation.

In a second 2-L reactor vessel with a radial flow impeller operating at 100 rpm, add ingredients four, five, six, and seven until the mixture is homogenous.

To reactor #2, add ingredient eight, followed by three equal volumes of the homogenous mixture in reactor #1.

Additionally, add ingredient nine and ten slowly, with constant agitation. Care must be taken at this point in the reaction to control any temperature rise that may be the result of an exothermic reaction.

Using a screw extrude attached to a #4 nodulizer, place the mixture piece-meal on a 316SS sheet (300x600 mm).

Heat in a 460K oven for a period of time that is in agreement with Frank & Johnston's first order rate expression (see JACOS, 21, 55), or until golden brown.

Once the reaction is complete, place the sheet on a 25C heat-transfer table, allowing the product to come to equilibrium.

Lay a peice of bread on top of a lampshade. Light the light bulb. Any bulb will at least warm the bread, and larger ones will toast it quite nicely. Butter it or jam it if you got it.

Oh. Yeah. Keep an eye on it, and it's best to use a lampshade with a hole in the top SMALLER than the peice of bread.

Here's another toasting method:

Under a rack, place a small amount of a mixture of finely powdered aluminum and ferric oxide in the proportions of 25.3% to 74.7% by weight, respectively.

Put a slice of bread on the rack.

Put a peice of magnesium ribbon in the mixture and light it. Stand back.   WAY back.

When the mixture burns it will burn at about 2300 degrees C., so watch so that your toast doesn't burn.

Turn over and repeat for the other side.
