Unplanned Silence

Sorry I've been so distant lately. It's not you, it's me. It's not that I've found something new, it's just.... Well, it's the fact that the computer that has all my pictures on it is in another town and I can't find my frigging camera. Plus I haven't been doing much cooking lately, too busy trying to find an apartment and sort out all that big life change crap.

So, here is the only food picture I have on my brothers computer. It's a turkey, ham, coleslaw and potato chip sandwich on wheat. It was wicked good, really, although I should have toasted the bread. Actually, the coleslaw is the best, I'll have to do a post on it when I find my camera.

My Favorite Tuna Melt

So my brothers house is a mixed bag, lighting wise. Sometimes the lighting is awesome, sometimes it sucks. The problem is the lighting is best in the morning, when I'm not really doing much cooking. So that's why these pictures of this kick ass tuna melt are kind of crappy. But it was still wicked good, doesn't it look it? Instead of doing it grilled cheese style I took a roll and put the tuna on one half and the cheese on the other. Then I popped it into the toaster oven until browned and delightful.
When you do it this way the tuna gets some browning too and it's just lovely. Hm, I just realized I don't think I've shared my tuna salad recipe here. Well, that's a post for another day. I'm tired and need more coffee.

Sunday Cats #81

Guess who's back? Yep, I have access to the real Bob again. He's staying with me at my brothers, although hopefully we'll have our own place before too long. Then I'll be cooking for just myself, that's when we see if you guys are actually interested in what I like. Heh.

Mega Nachos

Ok, I know what you're thinking, is he really back this time? Well, I'm not telling. I'm a man of mystery and I like to keep things mysterious. But since I'm back, I figure I'll share these nachos with you.

Yeah. It started with a big chunk of chorizo, some hamburger, onions and garlic getting browned up. Then we added some salsa, black beans... uhm, other stuff too. I don't really remember. Cumin, that went in there. Cheese. And we heated the whole thing up in the oven. It seemed the perfect time to try out the hot sauces I got from Cholula. They were all good (and free in exchange for a review. That's adequate disclaimer, right?), but the best one was definitely the chipotle. I'll definitely be keeping my eye out for that in stores. At some point I'm going to remake the nachos and write down a recipe, they were wicked good. We topped them with sour cream and more salsa, but other toppings would be good too. Anything you'd put on nachos, really...
