I had this
for lunch today. I'm in Salt Lake City for a business trip and I went to a Chilean deli for lunch today. The picture is of the milanesa sandwich and empanada I got. The sandwich had steak, melted cheese, a fried egg, lettuce, tomato and avocado on it. The empanada was ground beef, onion, raisins and an olive. It was so good, and I'm waiting for the heart attack now.

I love this stuff, even though I don't have a name for it besides "that mac and cheese junk I make". It's quick and easy and is good for when you haven't been to the grocery store in awhile.
Make a box of mac and cheese and stir in a can of peas and a can of tuna (both drained). For another variation, make a box of mac and cheese and add a can of drained kidney or pinto beans and a can of chili. One more way to make it is with a can of peas and a can of cream of mushroom soup. You can eat it as-is, or scoop it into a casserole dish and sprinkle the top with shredded cheese and breadcrumbs and put it under the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is melty and has some nice burny parts on it. Comfort food with a little extra somethin-somethin. I made the first version this evening, and it's all gone.
Oct 19 2006, 08:33 PM
Mmm, I've made something like that (tuna, beans, cheese, paprika on top) with regular pasta, but not mac & cheese- I'll have to try yours next time!!

Sorry, Mouse, WHAT?!! Ban Vegemite?! Like the population of the US is dangerously at risk from excess consumption of folate?! Fuckin' A, man... So, what about Marmite, then? Or is that just letting the terrorists win? /rant
Oct 24 2006, 11:31 AM
apparently the fda has only approved folates for cereals. W. T. F.
i don't think they've extended it to marmite yet but who knows? i think the big issue was that vegemite's label doesn't tell you exactly how many folates you might ingest, or something.

Oct 27 2006, 03:12 PM
accidentally ate those so-called mini meals today... mostly because I was busy and kept snacking instead of eating a proper meal. hmm. I guess it's good to not get ravenous, but I feel weird not eating a real meal.
a.m.: whole-grain toasted almond granola bar. coffee x 2.
later a.m.: small handful black raisins, couple spoonfuls raw cashews
early afternoon: stonyfield berry bash yogurt, apple
later afternoon: kashi golean chocolate turtle roll bar cause I was ravenous walking home from the gym and stopped at the health food store (yikes! nearly broke my teeth! it was like a rock... no good).
early evening: few bites of a leftover baked apple w/dried fruit and walnuts. rye crisp while waiting for tea water to boil. couple honey-roasted peanuts from the halloween stash. tea.
supper will be a real meal: baked chicken with garlic, steamed broccoli with garlic, spelt with bell peppers and garlic. mmm! no vampires.
Oct 30 2006, 07:28 PM
Hey folks. Hoping this is the right thread (it's the only food-oriented one I saw) to ask:
Anybody know how long it takes MISO to go bad? I've had a (previously opened) package of it stored in a zip lock bag in my fridge for a couple months and there's no marking on the package to tell me how long it'll stay good for like that.
Oct 31 2006, 06:13 AM
Barefoot, precocious and in the kitchen would probably be better place to ask, they are qute food savvy in there.

Nov 3 2006, 03:23 PM
Haha, blak, I've done exactly the same thing! I often wake up craving sweets (maybe something about quickly bringing up the blood sugar, I don't know), so the combination of few groceries + an entire cake in the fridge = our fave breakfast!

i took over my lease on the first (first, last and security) and i don't have a credit card, so this week i've literally been reduced to scraping the
quarters nickels from between the couch cushions for gas money. i have been methodically cleaning out my fridge and cabinets:
-leftover black beans cooked with a sad, probably too old onion i found in the back of the fridge
-peanut butter and jelly sandwich
-black beans and rice (see above)
-lentils with cheese
-turkey sandwich with what was left of the turkey, mustard
-generic kraft dinner
i got my paycheck just now and i am SO treating myself to a huge slap-up lunch tomorrow.
Nov 3 2006, 09:19 PM
Last night I made a delicious oniony turkey loaf glazed with red pepper jam. it was so good that I could not stop eating it. I must have eaten half a lb. of meat alone last night, plus sweet potatoes and broccoli.
Anyway, I felt like shit today so I broke my fast with one of those Salad Bags---it was called Asian Crunch & it had peapods, radishes, noodles (which I stayed away from) & ginger dressing. it was pretty good.
For lunch I had more salad and half of a cheese blinz becasue I am getting my period any second and cannot seem to control myself.
THEN I had the most fabulous dinner ever. It was crispy rock shrimp with a sweet honey mustard and white wine sauce, asparagus, bok choy and pan fried udon noodles. YUM.http://lighthousenews.us/restaurants/ironc...ouse/index.html

Nov 6 2006, 12:09 PM
Dayum, mouse, you makeme miss Los Angeles!
though boston's Mexican food gets getter and better, it does not Match Los Angeles - or even Chicago!
It's better than it used to be, though. I don't know if you were in Boston to experience Anna's Taqueria, but it is great.
Yesterday I had the best chicken burrito with hot sauce, beans, guacamole and jalapenos!
And me and the boy had yellowtail Shiraz Grenache with salmon, rice, and tomatoes.
Nov 6 2006, 01:18 PM
i luuuuurve anna's taqueria, wombat, even after living in LA! that means they are GOOD. el pelon is not too shabby either. but nothing will ever beat my favorite taco stand, "tacos arizas" on the corner of logan and sunset. carne asada TO DIE FOR.

half a sweet potato and a parsnip, baked in foil and drizzled with oil

Does that sound like a ton of food for one day? I feel so fat lately, but I have NO control over my eating. How many calroies are you supposed to eat to lose weight?
eta: I know I'm in the wrong thread so feel free to ignore.
Nov 8 2006, 12:36 PM
tampon, that doesn't sound like a ton of food......in fact, it doesn't sound like much at all, especially since it's all vegan. i think that caloric amounts to lose weight vary per person; just less than you normally would eat.
but please don't worry, that REALLY doesn't sound like a lot of food.
Nov 9 2006, 08:02 AM
Ok thanks mouse, I just wanted some perspective.
Nov 9 2006, 03:39 PM

Nov 9 2006, 07:40 PM
Starved myself the entire day (save for half a bottle of Pepsi and a cupcake) so that I could eat:
Entire dinner-serving of vegetable lasagna
About a loaf of bread
Half a bottle of pinot grigio
Warm espresso cake with strawberries and a scoop of vanilla ice cream
Water to wash down the last of the wine
*rolls self on floor and awaits Grey's Anatomy*
Two of my friends were celebrating their birthdays today at this great little Iitalian place, and I know how much I love the food, sooooo...yeah. This is what happened. And now I'm ready to burst. But goddess, was it good!...
If you ever catch me whining about needing to lose weight, please e-slap me, then kindly refer me to this post. Thanks.
