Disco Stew

Okay, so I had a leftover bottle of mediocre shiraz (we had a few sips, decided it was meh, and I saved it for cooking wine) with big plans to throw it in a beef stew. Today is that beef stew. I’ve done beef stew before as well, but I’m going to make my own beef stock for the stew.

Anybody who mentions how retarded it is to make beef stock on the same day you’re making stew can drop dead. Seriously. Now.

Okay, so it’s been a long day at work, it’s eleven o’clock, and we’re both hungry and don’t want another frozen pizza. I decide I want to cook. We both work night shifts, so this is only so unusual. Tracy’s favorite dish of mine (usually) is when I just cook up some veggies in olive oil, toss them with penne, and sprinkle with feta. So I decide we’ll do that tonight – with a twist. I’m going to try to make my own pesto. A note on this post, we only have a few pictures and as the kitchen was messy when I showed up, cleaning it is a work in progress. It’s well past midnight, so whatever.

Farmstead’s Amber Ale Cheese

I love cheese. Most cheese. With the exception of mild cheddar. Finding new and interesting cheese is a cause for serious celebration in my little world. Finding Leerdammer practically calls for my own little Mardi Gras.

Imagine my delight when we come across new cheeses in the local produce store. The company, Village Cheese, is located in the small town of Armstrong, British Columbia. It takes every ounce of restraint that I have in order to keep from throwing at least four different kinds of their cheese into the basket and making a break for the register before what I’m doing actually registers in my mind.

To quote my friend Joe, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of this.

My first meal here is going to be taken directly from celebrity chef Tyler Florence, who’s delicious recipes I have been gleefully ripping off for some time now. Not sure how he stacks up as a cook, but whatever. I like his stuff. What I’m attempting here is some southern style cooking; barbecued chicken, cornbread, and coleslaw with pecans and a spicy sauce. The recipes are all being taken directly from the food network website. This is my first attempt to blog my cooking, and so here goes!

Greetings, mortals.

So, I’m starting a blog.

I’ve actually been attempting to do something like this for months now. My girlfriend Tracy is an avid blogger, and has a continual stream of blogs which she will start, begin to get an audience with, and then promptly euthanize before anything significant becomes of it. I think over the last year and a half she’s murdered a good seven or so blogs. During all of this, she’s constantly peppered me with requests to start up a blog. I have a lot to say, I enjoy writing, and I’m opinionated… just very, very lazy. I could never think of a theme, as I think I’m hardly interesting enough to warrant the egocentrism I associate with blogs.

But then… there’s cooking.
