I think mine is more that I don't really care to cook with meat, but like when it's prepared for me.

Is there an honorable title for cooking exclusively with no meat?

people should eat what their bodies have evolved to expect. that's enough of a reason to feel contempt over the concept of going vegetarian

I'm okay with people who go vegetarian over moral and ecological concerns. But the people who think they are doing it because it's objectively 'healthier' can suck it.

Put in context - a creature that occasionally eats meat, so long as it's delivered to them ready to go - that suggestion is terrifying.

Absolutely :fist:

I've had to go into Mom's Organic Market a few times and most of the people I see there have terrible skin and hair and they look like they are dying.

I don't recall if BigMcK ever posted about this thing, but I just saw Farmbox L.A. profiled on local news. Basically, it's an online farmers market that offers home delivery. Fee is only $12.95 on a $50 order, which I consider reasonable when you take into account that shopping for $50 worth of groceries represents probably 90 minutes of my time, and their prices are pretty darn reasonable.

I ordinarily like to poke and prod my produce before I buy, but I can definitely see the utility of something like this.

There are similar services out my way. There are A LOT of farms near me and most participate. I'm not sure of the prices but you get a box delivered every week. Whatever is in season is what you get which is pretty awesome considering we tend to cook with the seasons even in an age where we can get any fruit or veggie any time of the year (pretty much). We haven't bothered with doing it yet for the same reason that tif mentioned. I like to inspect all of my produce first.

I just had my first run in with the very sour/bitter barberry.

Delicious!

One of the student workers is from Iran and her husband brought a barberry fruit rollup type of thing back from Atlanta. I might have to mail order some dried barberries and figure out a good Persian dish to put them in.

Decided to go with a different marinade for carne asada tonight. Did the Tyler Florence mojo marinade with some modifications. Was really very good. Also achieved a nice medium/medium-rare on the flank steak. Nice meal.

Had some neighbors over last night for a pool party. Rocked some dry rubbed ribs that I cooked overnight in a slow oven (160°F), then cold smoked (hickory) for about 4-5 hours day of. Righteous. Also cooked a Filipino-style adobo chicken that was really tasty.

In this premise, meat I guess.

I enjoy how often you fly off the handle but not enough for it to really resonate.

Grilled pizza last night. The sauce was shallots and garlic sauteed in olive oil, some rosemary and balsamic. Layered that with fresh sliced peaches, prosciutto and goat cheese. It was delicious.

yeah, we had some peaches from the farmers market that were to the point of either eating or slicing and freezing. And we had some goat cheese, so I found a pizza recipe for those two plus proscuitto, the sauce was something I came up with.

Hey, I like pineapple and anchovy pizza, so I can't throw and stones at peaches and prosciutto. And prosciutto is often paired with fruit, I believe melon in particular.

Tonight was something else that may be odd for some... pumpkin and black bean tacos. Had the obvious of pumpkin and black beans as well as jalapenos, onions, garlic, cheddar cheese. Topped with a yogurt, pumpkin, hot sauce mix, and some lettuce and green tobasco. It was a good vegetarian meal for sure.

I think I've found my utility knife bbq sauce:
http://www.johnnyharrisbbq.com/product/original-3-pk/

A bit sweet, some nice heat and a piquant element to it, without going fully into the zone of vinegar sauces (which I love).
The viscosity is about half way between an off the shelf vinegar hot sauce and a off the shelf bbq sauce: perfect for pouring over pulled pork and for grilling chicken/ribs. And it's just thin enough that you want to pour it on the latter, after dinner has reached your plate.

4/5 stars.
