    What are you making?

    Personally I'm a big fan of cooking although I'm not that big of doing the dishes, what kind of stuff are the rest of you making? There are a number of things that I'd like to make but since its generally only for one I avoid 'larger' types of dishes. Today I made a cornish game hen in my Showtime Rotisserie with some homemade bbq sauce. It consisted of ketchup, minced mango, a touch of lemon juice and orange juice. A bit of honey a splash of vinegar along with oregano, salt and lemon pepper. It was my first attempt at such a sauce and I have to say it came out pretty darn good, although the next time I think I'll leave out the ketchup and make more of a 'fruity sauce.'

    Has anybody else done some experimenting in the kitchen? I'd love to hear about it.

    I like tasty food, but lack the imagination to come up with anything. The extent of my creativity is seeing what tastes good with Frank's Red Hot on it. Other than that, it's usually frozen foods (until Mrs. CaptainSolo begins to complain about my horrible eating habits and crams some veggies down my throat).

    By thread title alone, I thought you were wondering what I was making at work in terms of wages. Was this important to say? No. I'm just bored.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    I should be making something. I like toast, but I lost the recipe.

    For a second there I thought this was going to be about how much $$ are you making.

    I "cooked" a frozen pizza last night.

    If it can't be cooked in a microwave, or by some chef at a fast food chain, then I don't have time to prepare or eat it.

    Re: What are you making?

    I'm making a dish of my own creation. It's boiled rice tinged with turmeric powder to give it a more appealing yellowy golden colour possibly with aded raisins and peas or diced peppers. Then on top of that a can of baked beans heated to a fairly high temp and the tomato sauce allowed to coagulate slightly so it's fairly thick. On top of that i grate some red cheese. Usually double Gloucester or Red Leicester. But red cheddar will suffice.

    To serve simply place the rice on the plate and hollow out the middle where you pur the beans. or ooze them if you cooked em too long. finally grate the cheese directly onto the beans so the cheese melts and forms a polar cap. hiding the beans.
    If you want to be fancy a sprig of fresh parsley for garnish.

    best place to eat it is sat in front of the living room window watching the world go by while trying to avoid geting bits of rice everwhere.

    best not to try eating using fingers. a large fork should do the trick.

    well I'm not sure how the colour is achieved but 'red' cheese has a sort of orange colouration. So you have your white cheeses, your red cheeses, your veined cheeses, your runny soft cheeses, your speciality cheesses with stuff added in like fruit or nuts or smoked ham or whatever, oh and then there's waxed cheeses. which have an outer layer of protective wax and generally come in ball shapes.

    then you have your fake cheese like cheese slices and cheese strings and cheese in a can.

    It tickles me that you guys over there have cheddar cheese. cheese that's never even seen a picture of the cheddar gorge here in England.

    You know about this stuff? The last Brit I try to explain fake cheeses to was totally clueless and then horrified and sickened when I when into the details.

    I what you're saying (we in the States don't have real Cheddar, which I mostly agree with), but I don't have a clue as to what you said.

    Are you talking about this? http://www.cheddarcaves.co.uk/ I'm a big big fan of cheddar cheese, acutally aged cheddar is my favorite. The only the better, 8 yrs old is my record (and favorite so far).

    There is a cheese store that I've been to one or two times and it has some really great stuff, I'll have to check out red cheese's the next time I'm there.
