I have like a billion tomatoes and not a whole lot of plans for them. I like them best raw, so what can I do aside from tacos, BLTs, caprese salad and just slicing them up with a little salt?

I never, ever fry stuff, but was hit with an urge to make homemade tortilla chips and now I have like $10 worth of corn and peanut oil in a big pot. What's the best way to store the used oil? Strain it, and put it back in the plastic containers?

This tomato pie is amazing and, unlike most tomato pies/tarts/cobblers, has fresh tomatoes included as well which should suit your tastes.


Falafel-spiced tomatoes are a nice twist on tomato on toast


I liked this fresh corn grits with oil-poached tomatoes but my wife didn't. Probably because I'm obsessed with corn.

Strain using a paper towel or unfolded napkin (so as to be single layer) in a funnel into the plastic container. I find that coffee filters take way too long for me, and I can get 8+ uses out of oil this way so long as I'm not frying intensely flavored things like fish, onions, or eggplant (bitters the oil)

Regarding cooks country, I actually like that most of any of the other dreck they shovel out because at least thatís like regional specialties and honest home-cooking as opposed to half-baked white people takes on assorted other poo poo.

Leipzig is pretty old school German: think heavy food and lots of it. Lot of counter culture/trendy vegan places too, though. If you're ever going to have schweinshaxe, this will be the place to do it. Still might be hot, though, so if I were you I'd just find a cool beer garden to hang out in all afternoon and get mildly dazed.

In Berlin get a Döner in Kreuzberg. They invented the Döner sandwich. I'm serious Kreuzberg has the best döner outside of Turkey.

Biergarten zum Schießhaus in Dresden has one of the best schnitzels I've had in all of Germany. Get it with bratkartoffeln instead of chips/fries. There's also a cool brewery called Watzke but the staff were less friendly iirc.

Leipzig and Dresden are very comparable in their cuisine, being both in Saxony. So they both have the classic German dishes with lots of pork, mashed potato, sauerkraut and red cabbage. Leipzig has a cool brewery at Bayerischer Bahnhof (way cooler than Watzke) that makes a great Gose.

My fermenting jar and airlock arrived today.

I transferred the peppers and brine from the rubbermaid container into the jar, and I'm noticing the brine is cloudier than it looked before.

I'm not sure if thats because everything got stirred up while transferring, or if the batch is bad. I only started it on... Friday?

This is what it looks like:

In the beans and rice dinner boxes, do they partially cook the beans beforehand or is it possible to cook raw beans with rice and have both of them be done at the same time?

Looks normal to me. The brine will get tinted by the peppers.

edit; here's mine after 30 days, maybe, I forgot to date the jar.

2 scoops short grain rice, cooked
1 hamburger patty cooked
1 fried egg, sunny side up
1 smother of industrial brown gravy (the kind that comes as a powder and you mix with water and warm up)

Put on the plate in that order. Voilà, a loco moco.

Yeah. For the first time ever, Guy Fieri's recipe is actually fancier than the original (he adds mushrooms).

It says "salad" right in the name, and is thus the healthy part of a plate lunch.

Hawaii is the only place outside of a roughly 300 mile radius from St Louis where you can get a pork steak though, so maybe theyre on to something.
