Shabbat Dinner with The Food Guy

Last night was Shabbat and I decided to cook some chow. Since I don’t eat all that well in the army and we only get one meat a day, usually at lunch, on the weekends I like to eat as much as I can.

For Shabbat Dinner, I cooked meatballs (lamb). Mixed in with the meatballs was diced onions, some pepper, salt, garlic powder, nutmeg, oregano, and a little Italian dressing. I cooked them for about 35 minutes on the stove in tomato sauce. Along with the meatballs we had pasta and grilled peppers and onions.

I was very pleased with how everything came out, it was very delicious. I’ve started to somewhat enjoy cooking. I used to hate it and would still prefer to be cooked for, but it gives me something to do and its grown on me.

Tonight for Dinner:

Grilled Teriyaki chicken, brown rice, a salad and edamame. I’m looking forward to it and will let everyone know how it turns out. Enjoy your Saturday where ever you may be. Go outside, sit by the beach, run through the sprinkler, have a catch. Have a good one everyone.

What’s Cookin’ With The Food Guy

Tonight on the Food Guy’s menu will be chicken breast, which has been marinated in honey mustard since last night. I plan to cook it in the oven and then finish it off in this grill pan that my Mom gave me. On the side, there will be grilled onions and peppers and I haven’t decided on what will accompany the chicken and grilled veggies. Any Suggestions?

Tonight, Michelle cooked dinner, and it was quite delicious. She made chicken schnitzel, Israeli Cous-cous, and green beans. It was very good. I’m extremely stuffed, but currently thinking about eating some glida (ice cream).

Nothing exciting for dinner tonight. Michelle had hebrew class, so I made pasta with tomato sauce (from the jar, I know, I know, how can I call myself the Food Guy?). I also grilled some yellow, red and green peppers and some onions and made garlic bread. Nothing special, but it will do.

Burrito Night

What’s on the menu for The Food Guy tonight: Burritos baby. I will be making ground beef that will be seasoned with some salt, pepper and cumin cooked with onions. Sliced up veggies including peppers, lettuce, tomato. There will also be salsa, sour cream and cheese. Of course some beans as well. All wrapped in a tortilla. “Put some hot sauce on my burrito, baby!” Burrito night is one of my favorite nights. That’s it for the day everyone. Adios muchachos

Cookout, Food Guy Style

Shabbat Shalom,

Sorry about the lack of a post yesterday. I went to the beach most of the day and then had a cookout on the beach with a few friends at night. It was Doc, Joe, Ariel, Michelle and myself. It was a good time with a ton of food. We had steaks, which were marinated in Peter Luger Steak Sauce. Extremely delicious. Pargiot, which is baby chicken breast. Also, a favorite of mine. Some people have a problem with eating those baby chicks, but I just think they are amazingly delectable. I don’t see what’s wrong about eating a baby chick. In my opinion you just put it out of its misery without teasing it and making it think its going to have this great long life only to end up on someone’s dinner table. You gotta love those baby chicks. We also had kebabs, beef sausages, and grilled vegetables. We grilled on two little, portable grills. They worked fine. All in all, it was extremely delicious. We stayed out for a while, had some brews and decided to call it a night around 3 a.m. or so. However, we had a little hick up on our way back to my place as Doc’s car was towed because I guess he parked where he wasn’t supposed to. That took about 45 minutes to get handled and then we headed back home, finally. Even with that it was a good night. Nothing beats grilling out by the beach.

What’s for Chow at Casa del הרבי (Herbie)

Just thought I’d show my “trilingual” skills off for all of you. Ha Ha what a joke. Anyway, on the dinner menu for tonight, Michelle is cooking chicken with pineapple and salsa. I’ve never had that combination before, but hell, I like chicken, I like pineapple, and I like salsa, so it’s gotta be tasty, right? On the side we are having rice and some vegetables. I’m looking forward to it, especially since I don’t need to cook. Oh yeah, Michelle is quite the baker and she made this awesomely delicious apple cake the other day, so with her permission, I will post the recipe and a picture of the cake. Sorry that’s it for now….

The Food Guy and friends Josh Zeid and Ben "Bore" Orell munching on some succulent Louis burgers

Actually, I just found these pictures. It’s of myself and a few of my friends dining late night at Louis Lunch in New Haven after a night of boozing. If you don’t know what Louis is, then I suggest you get there because it’s the best burger in the world. Served on white toast with cheese whiz, tomato, and onion, no ketchup because it’s not needed.

Joshua Scolnic also recommends the potato salad to go along with the scrumptious burger. Michael "Slam" Battema giggles in the background with excitement at the thought of his burger and potato salad

As you can see in the picture on the right, Bore likes to look his food straight in the eye and show it who’s boss before he devours it, while The Food Guy just goes right for it. Doesn’t that make you hungry? On the Left, Josh Scolnic enjoys his potato salad with a big smile and a full belly.  These are also all members of the 2004 Green Team. Missing are Jonathan Swirsky, Jake Stern, and Zach “Dad” Reiner. So clearly if a championship team eats at Louis Lunch, it is the place to go.

On another note, that hat that I’m wearing in the picture, the red throwback Cincinnati Reds Cap is still missing so if anyone finds it or has an clues as to its whereabouts, please contact me.
