Slightly Late Challenge 20: Treats

[personal profile] miss_s_b posting in [community profile] weekly_food_challenge
This week has been a bit rough in a lot of ways* - which is part of the reason for the challenge being late - so I think we all need a treat. You can interpret that word "treat" how you like: tell me your indulgences, your comfort foods, your foods you turn to when everything is awful.

And then we can all feel a bit better reading about them :)



* this is British for "a city near me had lots of its children blown up, politics remains screamingly frustrating, and I have had a horrific migraine", if you're wondering.

"NEEGATIVE FIVE STARS. What a terrible recipe! I was out of flour but
didn't want to go to the store so I substituted a cup of plaster and a cup of gravel, spray margarine for the cultured butter, and stevia drops for the sugar, and then fried the batter in bacon grease instead of baking it. And I didn't give it the 24 hour rest recommended in the recipe because I'm impatient. The results are INEDIBLE and clearly you CANNOT COOK and should DELETE YOUR BLOG."

[personal profile] pauamma posting in [site community profile] dw_community_promo
From [community profile] punning's profile:

Puns and wordplay welcome, the worse the better. Long, short, contorted, obscure, whatever. Filthy OK, but must use cuts and some kind of content warning. Likewise triggery. Visual puns OK, but must have description in an alt= tag. Likewise, recorded audio or video puns need a transcript of some kind. (I'm not deaf or blind, so leaving the specifics open, but if you don't know what's needed, be prepared to take those who do at their word, and accept contributions if offered.)

Clean or filthy, puns will likely break your brain over time and cause copious amounts of pain. If you can't live with that, you probably shouldn't be reading this comm.

Title: Both Ends of a Candle
Author:[personal profile] nuraicha
Rating: G
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Twelve/Missy, Twelve/Simm!Master. Twelfth Doctor, Missy, Simm!Master, Bill Pots.
Warnings: implied and forced mind control
Spoilers: it's set after The Pilot (s10e01) but it isn't compliant with how the series is going. Spoilers for a character who appears in the "coming soon" trailer but hasn't shown up yet in the series.
Summary: Something was out of time. Something was wrong, and the Doctor couldn’t pinpoint what it was. It made him feel nervous, wary, and protective of the human woman beside him. The Doctor is always clueless when he has to face who he knows best.

Beta: [personal profile] merelymuser
Disclaimer: Doctor Who and its characters aren't mine, I don't gain money or any kind of economic profit from this.
Author's note: Title taken from the song "Fury" by Muse, because its lyrics are kind of fitting for Twelve and the Master, in my opinion. Also, I'm new to this comm, hello!

Almost ten years ago, I was an au pair for my aunt and her family in a village near Frankfurt am Main in Germany. On one occasion we went to a fair and picked up a bottle or two of Federweisser - very, very young wine. And my aunt made Zwiebelkuchen to go with it. Because that's what you do.

'Every family,' says my aunt, 'has its own recipe.' Hers is a lovely tangly oniony mess on a bread base.

The following recipe is not really Zwiebelkuchen. In fact, the book I got it out of calls it Farmhouse Potato Pie, but to me it's much more about the onions. It's in no way authentic, but I find that it's very evocative. It's a hassle, so I don't make it often, but it's gorgeous, so I do make it sometimes. It's the right sort of hassle (for me, at least): you can do a bit at a time, and go and have a bath while the base is chilling, etc, and the washing up isn't too bad if you do it as you go along.

I usually have it in the autumn, with cider, but it's worked very nicely in May, with a Spanish red wine. So there you go.

Recipe under the cut )
norfolkian: Holtzmann from Ghostbusters licking a gun (Default)
[personal profile] norfolkian posting in [community profile] weekly_food_challenge
I cooked this last night and it ended up not being what I'd planned. We just got back from holiday yesterday and I didn't fancy venturing too far from home, so I popped out to the small local Asda for some ingredients in the afternoon. I'd been planning to do something with spring onions, but the spring onions in Asda did not look very appetising, so I bought some red onions instead. And this was the result.

I've suggested using more spice than I actually put in, because mine ended up being a little on the bland side, but you can adjust according to your taste. You could also make this with thighs on the bone which may help to make it more flavourful - you'll just need to increase the cooking time a little.

Serves 3-4

Ingredients
A small amount of olive oil (I usually use around 1 tsp)
4 large skinless, boneless chicken thighs
2 red onions, sliced
4 garlic cloves, crushed
250g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
1 red pepper and 1 green pepper, cut into strips
2 heaped tsp smoked paprika
1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
handful of fresh coriander, chopped

Method
Pre-heat the oven to 180C (fan-assisted). Heat the oil in a cast iron casserole dish or a saucepan which can be used in the oven. Add the chicken thighs and cook until brown all over. Add the onions, garlic, mushrooms and peppers and cook for a few minutes until it's all just starting to soften. Add the paprika, give it a good stir and cook gently for about a minute. Add the chopped tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Give it a good stir, then place the lid on the casserole and then put it in the oven. Cook for 30-40 minutes until the chicken is all cooked through and everything is soft and melty and yummy. Garnish with the fresh coriander. Serve with rice.

Wah, this challenge couldn't come at a worst time -- my dietitian's forbidden me onions for this month! But I wanted to share this recipe with y'all because onions are so important and I love them a lot. Like the holy trinity in Creole food, onions are also essential to Bengali cooking (along with ginger and garlic.) Growing up, I would watch my grandmother make chingri dopiaza on special occasions -- though onions are the definition of everyday food, shrimp can get expensive.

I think in Bangladesh, they used prawns in this recipe, but in the US, I use shrimp because that's what's easily available. (Please don't put me on the spot about the differences between shrimp and prawns -- I know there are physical differences, but there's also the divided by a common language thing.)

[personal profile] psychopathicus_rex and [personal profile] icon_uk debate the definition of "folklore":

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Not to be pedantic, but (werewolves being vulnerable only to silver bullets) is strictly Hollywood - any old bullet will do. Don't muck up your folkloric credentials now!

ICON_UK: As folklore is more or less completely made up, I fail to see how Hollywood isn't as valid a source as anywhere else, considering how humans everywhere always LOVE turning things into stories.

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Well, the way I look at it, Hollywood folklore is stuff you KNOW is made up - traditional folklore has generally been around for a long time, and at least stands a chance of being true. Personally, I'm a bit of a mystical type by inclination, so I prefer to give it the benefit of the doubt.

ICON_UK: I think I'm more of a Granny Weatherwax type in such things. Folklore is lore told by "folk", and how reliable have people you think of as "folk" ever been? :)

Challinj #19: Onions

Onions are the base for so many sauces, stews and curries it's ridiculous. Like, almost everything savoury can be made with onions in. There are also recipes that allow onions to shine out as a main flavour - French onion soup, onion tart, onion chutney. So there's a decent breadth of possibility this week, I think.

I'm sure you guys can show me some awesome recipes. I'm sure you... know your onions.

tl;dr: use the oven and lots of butter.

Your options for this breakfast are:
  • sausages (meaty or veggie)
  • mushrooms
  • soft sliced onions
  • hash browns
  • black pudding
  • fresh tomatoes (not tinned, though)
  • baked beans
  • bacon (or facon for vegetarians)
  • fried bread
  • toast
  • fried eggs
this is how I do it )
I am aware that some people prefer scrambled eggs rather than fried for breakfast; that's not really practical with this breakfast, what with everything else that's going on, but you can check out a scrambled egg recipe here (good set of comments on that post too).

Fancy schmancy breakfast

I used this challenge to make a decadent breakfast as a treat. Y'know, the kitties had to wish me a Happy Mother's Day somehow.

I did a spin on the traditional eggs benedict, using salmon instead of canadian bacon/ham and adding some other bits and bobs (some out of necessity). I hadn't tried it before but this pastrami-style smoked salmon looked yummy at TJ's - and BOY was it yummy.


 
 
I had intended to also use Trader Joe's crumpets but I really must stop buying them anymore. They have a tendency to quickly grow mold no matter how you store them. I'd only purchased them on Thursday and yep, little green spots already. I had a tube of buttermilk biscuit dough in the fridge that I'd intended to use on something else but it had to do - and it did very well. I did have a loaf of nice bread I purchased yesterday but with benedict, you need something more sturdy than soft bread.

Since I didn't purchase any asparagus for a side dish, I quick sauteed some thin sliced scallion and some baby spinach to put in between the poached eggs and the salmon. I used this recipe for blender hollandaise sauce, though either I used a smidge too much lemon juice or it could have used another yolk since it turned out thin. But the flavor was there so that's all that truly counts, right? 

Enough babbling, though, here was the result - isn't it pretty?

I'm definitely not going to be hungry for several hours *urp*

Editor's Note: I haven't watched Oxygen yet because I had to be on a train when the show was on, but I gather it was quite good...?
