Shock Totem Recipe Room

Because apparently dark fiction and cooking go hand in tentacle.

Got to have something to keep those tentacles busy. Food always does the trick.

Since we were discussing cool summer time treats in the contest thread (LOL! What a derail) here's one y'all might like.

Freezies

Your favorite flavor fruit juice
vanilla yogurt
crushed/chipped ice
Ginger ale or sparkling cider
Fresh berries to compliment the juice

Freeze fruit juice until slushy. Combine 1 cup slushy juice, 1 cup ginger ale/cider and ice in blender. Blend for a few seconds. Add hefty amount of yogurt (say, 2-3 cups) and berries. Blend again and yummy. Dig in it.

ETA: As an added note, this makes quite a lot, so if you're the only one trying it out, you ay want to decrease the amounts. It's supposed to look a bit like a slushy from 7/11

Here's one of my favorite summertime coolers:

In a blender, put:

12-15 ice cubes
1 cup water
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
6 oz frozen conc. orange juice

Blend until smooth....

I don't use recipes...I sort of just eyeball measurements and wing it.

I do this too, especially with things I make a lot. But I do try to measure at least the first time in case anyone wants to know how I did it. Just in case, yanno. That way I'm not standing there going... "Uhh... well, see I threw in some sugar and butter..."

Aaah. I see. There was one of those stands at the mall a few towns over from me for years. I made my parents take me to the mall just to buy an orange julius. After I got one, I was ready to leave. I never hung out at the mall. Not my bag.






Any thought on how good an idea it would be to drop the vanilla and just use a shot of vanilla vodka? Very Happy Curiosity, yanno.

Ohhhh I have spiked it before, but that is inspired...

Yay! I'm the same as the rest of you: measurements are for the weak.

Since we're discussing summer food, here are two cold 'salads' that are delicious.

Southwestern Corn (Good in wraps, with chicken, etc.)

Cooked corn
Black beans
Green chilies, whatever kind you like.
Chopped avocado
Cumin powder
Chili powder
chopped cilantro
Queso fresco cheese
lime juice
salt and pepper

Rice Salad (Great next to really spicy food!)

Cooked rice
Chopped cucumber
Chopped tomatoes
Lime Juice
Salt
Sour cream
Powdered sage

Mmm smoothies. I was just reading that if you add 2-4 tbs coconut oil (found in health food stores) a day, is great brain food.

I have worked in bakeries for like the last 16 years so almost all my measuring is eyeball and estimation.

I'm all over that corn recipe....MMMMMMMM.

Ghetto Pizza:

Bread
Tomato sauce
Slice o' cheese

Toast the bread.
Place them on a cookie sheet.
Spread tomato sauce on each piece.
Add slice o' cheese.
Stick under the broiler until cheese melts.

Ghetto pizza!

I used to do this all the time as a poor kid. And I still do, as a poor adult. It's surprisingly good. Haha.

A favorite simple thing I dig:

"SPACE DOGS"

-take a package of turkey or chicken frankfurters (Hot dogs)
-cut a slice or slices into each one

-Place in bun

-add toppings desired (mine usually have ketchup, mustard, horseradish and salsa on them)

-Wrap in foil and bake in oven for about 10 minutes until bun is toasted.

-viola!! Space Dogs.

All the condiment flavors bake into the hot dog...bangin!!!

TT awesome. Glad you guys liked it.

Shiney, my youngest will love you for those "Space Dogs". He's a hot dog fanatic... thinks they're food for the gods.

As for Ghetto pizza, my kids do that too! They pile all kinds of stuff on them... bacon bits and such. I used to make "Ghetto Fudge" out of butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter and cocoa LOL. It was very crumbly but it tasted great.

I can't ever get it to do right now that I know how to make real fudge, though. Much to my husband's disliking. He loved my ghetto fudge.

My kids constantly ask me to make these burgers.

1. Spice up the hamburger how you like it. I usually use salt, pepper, diced garlic and horseradish.

2. Separate the hamburger into lumps that are about 1/4 pound each and form them into patties (I use a press, which is an invaluable tool, IMO).

3. Cook up two slices of bacon per burger, crumble half of the bacon and set aside.

4. Place one patty in the press and push the sides up slightly to form a lip, sprinkle one piece of crumbled bacon and some shredded cheese (plus some bacon grease if you really want it to be heart healthy) on top of the patty and put another patty on top. Press together to form one patty.

5. Grill on a lower than normal heat to make sure you cook it thoroughly. Top with the other slice of bacon (I also add green chile to mine) and melt more cheese on top, plus whatever veggies and condiments you like.

6. Unhinge your jaw... this is a big burger. Smile

Here's one for the fresh green beans from the garden that I make a meal out of. A little spaghetti sauce on the bottom of a pot, add an inch of beans, the ends removed, dot with chunks of raw sweet Italian sausage, sauce, and repeat until you run out of ingredients. No measurements needed. You can't do this one wrong. Just cook till the beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Fabulous. Make some garlic bread and maybe a salad and you've got a meal.

Thanks Shiney. How about Italian Beans, LOL. It's good with some Parmesan on top too.

That sounds yummy, Kerr!

You can also make your own Italian Sausage with fennel, garlic and paprika (lots of paprika).

It's hard to find except online, but it is so worth finding smoked paprika. Phenomenal!

Tonight's dinner:

Sliced, raw red potatoes
Tomato sauce and diced tomatoes
Chicken stock
Powdered coriander
Smoked Paprika
Cinnamon
Salt and pepper
Garlic

Put all ingredients in a big saucepan on the stove. Allow a lot of time for this one! It needs to simmer for several hours, until all of the liquid is cooked into the potatoes and they are tender.

Top with sauteed onions and crumbled, salty cheese (Cotija, feta, etc). Serve with salad, or steak. VERY hearty dish.
