The Thursday Night Dinner Song: Burrito

至于我的承诺是食品arcania的无休止有趣源的一部分,这里是我向您承诺:每个星期四晚上我会写,执行和记录你的一首歌什么我吃晚餐。

今晚的选择被称为“卷饼”,并要求两件事情从你:

1. iTunes. I think you need iTunes to play it because my computer (a beautiful Apple) only records things in m4a format, not mp3.

2. The willingness to download it by following this link:

http://homepage.mac.com/adrober/.cv/adrober/Public/Burrito%20Song.m4a-binhex.hqx

Believe me, it will be very much worth your while. The Burrito song is an instant classic, inspiring Burrito eaters everywhere to join together in song. Hope you will too.

PS If anyone can tell me how to (a) convert an m4a into an mp3 and (b) how to post the song directly on to this page, I will be eternally grateful.

鲑鱼三明治丑闻

我爱阿龙的面包店在弗吉尼亚州的高地。我去那里的方式过于频繁,以至于工作人员的眼睛我怀疑我每次来通过门。manbetx万博老虎机

“He’s back?”

“What’s his problem?”

One employee, though–Cheryl–holds me in special regard.

“克莱·艾肯!”她大喊,每次我来通过门。manbetx万博老虎机

我的鸭子我的头,但它是没有用的。

“嘿,粘土艾肯,”她说,“你兴奋the new season of American Idol?”

我点点头,迅速下令我的三明治。

The two best sandwiches at Alon’s are the Chicken Pesto and the Roast Beef. The first comes on really good bread, with pesto (duh) and a slice of swiss cheese. The second also comes on good bread with a really incredible, lip-smackingly good rosemary mayonnaise.

And then there’s the salmon sandwich. The salmon sandwich is good, don’t get me wrong. A piece of broiled or baked salmon (not sure which) coated in black sesame seeds is served on foccacia bread with a Thai peanut sauce. It is the most expensive sandwich on the menu (almost $9, I think) and I order it when I am sick of chicken and roast beef.

Today I was sick of chicken and roast beef. I ordered my salmon sandwich and, after a rousing rendition of “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” escaped my adoring fans and went to eat outside.

Here are my problems with the Alon’s Bakery salmon sandwich:

– the bread is so thick and the piece of salmon so small, it’s like you’re basically eating a bread sandwich with a salmon garnish.

- 他们削减的方式,使鲑鱼滑和幻灯片周围,这样,最终,每咬你楔鲑鱼出越走越。今天到我的膝盖纸下跌splalt。还好我有我的膝盖上的纸张。

– It’s a terrible value. With the chicken and roast beef you get bang for your buck. Here you get a tiny piece of salmon, some sprouts, and a lot of bread.

In conclusion, when going to Alon’s, stick to chicken and roast beef. The salmon just doesn’t float.

Behind The Scenes: A Flour-Flecked Foto Shoot

As many of you may have noticed, that flour-coated god in the upper-right hand corner of your screen is none other than yours truly, The Amateur Gourmet.

然而,我相信你们很多人都在猜测:是否有任何这样的更多的图片?性感Jewstud的涂在亚瑟王面粉为主题的任何更多的变化?我们应当知道这种照片?

Alas, you shall. Welcome to a behind the scenes look at the making of The Amateur Gourmet. Please welcome our very special guest host, Tony Danza.

Hi: I’m Tony Danza. You may remember me from such popular sitcoms as “Who’s The Boss?” and “Taxi.”

The photograph you are enjoying in the upper right hand corner of your screen was constructed on the night of January 13th, 2004 by the very drunk, very assertive roommate of The Amateur Gourmet: Lauren S.

“Hair! Let me fix your hair!” she shouted, as The Amateur Gourmet ambled over.

“Is that Tony Danza?” he asked, and I nodded yes.

“Now take this bag of flour,” Lauren instructed The Amateur Gourmet, “and throw some on your face.”

业余美食家回头警惕。我抓拍了一张照片。

“Do it!” Lauren yelled, throwing back a shot of Jack Daniels and cracking a whip.

He did and I took another picture:

What followed were some of the most disturbing, emotionally scarring moments of my life. Hell, I once walked in on Mona naked during the “Angela Has An Abortion” episode of “Who’s The Boss?” and even that wasn’t half as scarring as witnessing this travesty of photographic injustice.

业余美食家请求你发表评论,解决他是否应该离开他的“神样”(在非扎林意义上的)图片在右上角,或与这些遗憾样本中的一个替换它。无论哪种方式,这是托尼Danzy说:“呦安吉拉”

And now for the pictures:

Lisa and Olives: Round One

我的朋友辛辛那提的Lisa G.,俄亥俄州目前居住在纽约曼哈顿,并享有素食热狗,方便面和小企鹅巧克力,我买了她为她的生日的饮食。从她的饮食,引用托马斯·爱迪生令人不安的是不存在的,“天堂的最富有的礼物吧”。地中海美食和马提尼神圣的主食眼镜无处不在:橄榄。

Lisa, despite her better qualities, seems to think of this distaste not as a flaw but as a highly unique aspect of her quirky, esoteric appetite. In other words: Lisa is wrong.

I have attempted to engage Lisa in a discussion concerning her and her shameless aversion to mother nature’s nipples. (Sorry, that was grotesque, but it made me laugh). This morning I wrote Lisa an e-mail asking her to answer the simple question: “Why don’t you like olives?”

在她的生硬和极富攻击性的回复,丽莎说:“我很想搞一个关于橄榄讨论。在这个时候,我有manbetx万博老虎机一些工作我应该做的,因此我将不能够立即启动过程,但是当我在我的睡衣家居和舒适在我的被褥,我会更乐意在签署和启动娱乐。谢谢你,包括我在你oliverific的努力。”

Clearly Lisa’s priorities are out of whack and clearly #2: Lisa is a liar liar pants on fire! As per the first claim: what kind of self-respecting radio executive with her own computer and her own access to the internet chooses to do real work when they can write about olives? And second of all, it is 11:53 PM and chances are that Lisa has already gone to sleep and has clearly not (a) sat on any futon, (b) signed on to any internet, or (c) started any fun.

我相信,如果我没记错的话,那我赢默认轮一个。橄榄都不错。

Martha Stewart’s Pecan Chocolate Chunk White Chocolate Chip Cookies

So despite my self-proclaimed ineptitude in the kitchen, I do have a knack for all things sweet and desserty. I’m a baker, not a fighter.

One of my favorite cookie recipes comes from America’s most beloved white collar criminals / domestic goddesses, Marthalicious Stewart. Available on her website for no charge (or the occassional insider trading tip) you will find the recipe for some wonderfully delicious cookies. I served these cookies to friends this weekend and their reactions were as follows:

“嗯!”

“Ohhhh!”

“Wheeee!”

Clearly, these are some really good cookies. Since posting the actual recipe may cause legal trouble for The Amateur Gourmet (who, despite three years in law school, has no idea how the law actually works), here’s the link:

业余图标的诞生

你能力的病了?

食品博客主管人提供完美的跟踪记录和无沙门氏菌的历史运行?

你是否厌倦了没有沙门氏菌的?

你来对地方了。

I’m The Amateur Gourmet: a completely untrained, unaccomplished culinary lout with absolutely no expertise in anything having to do with food. I have an immature palate, an understocked pantry and a penchant for purchasing food that’s already been prepared. In my defense, I watch Martha Stewart religiously.

Why, then–you may be wondering–have I sired a website dedicated to food? Mightn’t I have sired a website seeking the removal of the word “sire” from everyday parlance? Removing “parlance” from the parlance as well?

答案很简单。尽管我的知识的缺乏,我有好奇心很大,当涉及到相关的一切事物的食物。一小罐激情,可以这么说。我的朋友们,很遗憾,认为这是愚蠢的。

“这是愚蠢的,”我的朋友说。“你能不能专注于一些有趣的事情?像没用的爱情小说?”

[在他们的防守,我的朋友有一个没用的爱情小说阅读俱乐部。关于第二个想法,并没有真正在他们的防守工作。]

但是我的激情是持久的。我已经several meaningful contributions on established food sites like Chowhound and eGullet. The time has come for a forum of my own. A place where I can hang my hat and say: “Thanks for holding my hat.” And I think this is it.

业余美食家(就是我)与他的网站的三大目标:

目标1:鼓励年轻人(年龄在2至7)在非常好的餐馆用餐。很多时候,年轻的美国人(大卫·鲍伊含税)认为美食的东西他们的父母做的。他们不知道如何令人兴奋的,充满活力的一个真正伟大的饭都可以。因此,业余美食家将采用名为“青年文化走出吃饭”,其中他带着他不知情的同行出不错的餐馆,讲述很大,几乎恼人的细节体验的部分。

Goal #2: To encourage young people to cook more. Using my digital camera and my stove, I will serve as your very own private Lewis and/or Clark; stalking my way across the knotty kitchen terrain, attempting recipes your own mother wouldn’t dare and then reporting back. Hopefully, you will be so inspired by my derring-do that you will drop the computer you’re reading this on and go cook something yourself. (NOTE: I am not responsible for any dropped computers).

Goal #3: To become an internet phenomenon. Look, I’m not going to lie. I’m a third year law student without any desire to practice law. When people ask me what I’m doing next year, I stare at them dumbly and mumble hoping they think I’ve swallowed a chromosome. The truth is that the one thing I’m good at, the one thing that I care most about is writing. And this website allows me the opportunity to wrap my words around something that we all care enough about to do several times a day: masturbation. I mean: food consumption. Thus, my third goal is selfish. Love me, love me, love me!

我们现在已经达到了我的长,眼睛麻木的介绍结束。饿了吗?我希望你能和我一起做的业余美食家最大的网站在互联网迄今所知。请张贴在评论部分的评论和转发在网站上给你的朋友。快乐阅读!
