Tales of the One Arm Chef
Bacon, egg, and cheese bagel thinwich

With caramelized onion. This kicked off day two of gaming, which was sadly cut short by weather. The shrimp etouffee would have to wait.

Tales of the One Arm Chef
Low carb cochinita pibil

More low carb goodness for one of my gaming buddies. I replaced the agave syrup with a caramelized onion, water, and xanthum gum puree with just a dollup of agave. Orange extract and True Lemon replaced orange and lemon juice. Riced cauliflower stood in for rice. And much whimpering accompanied the cutting of the bone-in pork butt.

We did a test to see if store bought riced cauliflower (Green Giant) could be steamed without retaining the evil cauliflower taste. I asserted that unless it was precooked and strenuously strained, it would still taste awful. We steamed a batch, set half aside as the control, then brought the other half to boil, followed by tourniquet treatment. My friend didn't notice the cauliflower taste in the control. I spit mine out. So he can use it as is at home, while I'll have to continue doing it the hard way. I was hoping I was wrong, but oh well. I do appreciate the cut size of the store bought riced cauliflower, and it does save a little bit of time and cleanup.

Spicy tomato soup revisited

The day turned cold and cloudy, so I decided to replenish the tomato stores while shopping for the coming two day gaming fest. I made cheese quesadillas for the accompaniment this time. Also, Costco now has naan dippers! It's tough to beat this dish when you're chilled. If you roll to the end, you can see one of the side effects of the one armness. **spoiler alert** - things get messier.

Kitchen Quickie
Cheap cut of lamb

Every now and then, I'll see a pack or two at the market, demanding that I toss them in the cart. They're great for a quick rosemary, salt and pepper pan sear. This one, though, was a more complicated cut than usual, and arguably more work eating than it was worth. Still tasty.

Find out if your name was used to post a fake comment in support of ending net neutrality. And report it to the New York Attorney Genera if it was.

Happily, only one of a bunch of Andrew Dillons comments were bogus or simply misinformed copy and paste.
