Burn Flavor Lunch

15 Apr

Today I bought lunch, second time this week, not the norm.  I got egg salad on a toasted onion bagel.  I like both but this combo together does not work.  The deli guy should have warned me.  I usually get egg salad on a raisin bagel but I wanted to try something new.  I thought the onion would enhance the flavors of the salad.  To my disappointment the onion bits on the bagel were all burnt, giving the salad that nice charred flavor. LOL!  Tomorrow I’ll try to brown bag something from home.  By the way, including a small water lunch was $6.42.  Now, can someone give me a piece a gum to kill this horrible taste.

Latin Dinner

26 Feb

It’s been snowing on and off since Wednesday night so driving and going out to eat is not an option. Tonight I will be making a new dish, a Peruvian dish, Lomo Saltado. Basically it’s stripes of beef with tomatoes, potatoes and a bunch of other stuff and of course a side of white rice.  A few sites have the recipes but I got mine from the show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives ( love the show).  Okay so this is what I wrote down while watching the show

Peruvian Lomo

  • Ribeye cut to strips and season with pepper, salt, grated garlic and some soy sauce
  • Oil pan with EVOO
  • Place meat in pan, brown then flip
  • Add onions, tomatoes a little bit of vinegar and about 1/2 cup of beer
  • Salt a little again and add the French Fries (home made or frozen)
  • Stir, Plate, and Garnish with Parsley

I have everything but the soy sauce but I think it’ll be okay.
