Thought it might be fun to start a food thread. Pretty simple, post pics of food :-)

Posted this in another thread. Lunch, 3 eggs and 5 slices of Turkey bacon.

and my first attempt at protein fluff. It was pretty good, texture is like a mousse

The first picture, below, is a gigantic bacon sandwich that my wife and I ordered with my mother and step-father when we went to Upper Peninsula (Michigan) for our summer vacation last year. We stopped in at Tony's I-75 and let's just say I did not eat bacon for 2 weeks after... This is a normal BLT !! I did get a free "Got Bacon?" T-Shirt for attempting to put the damn thing down alone. I would have included the side of fries that came with it, but I would have needed a panoramic shot of the table.

This is my grilled salmon that I make on a regular basis. Unfortunately, this was at night back in March during a snow storm, so the quality of the picture sucked.


Homemade salsa that I made last summer, which I intend on making again this year. I grilled all of my vegetables (tomatoes, Cubanelle peppers, Romanian Sweet Peppers, Garlic, Vidalia Onions and Jalapenos). Then, I cut up some fresh cilantro and seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic.

This is our turkey from this past Thanksgiving. It came out phenomenal. I always smother it in butter, salt and pepper both on top of and under the skin (all over the turkey). Then, I take 2 fresh lemons and halve them and put them in the cavity. Then, throw some rosemary and fresh thyme sprigs in there for aromatics. Also, cut up some onions, celery and carrots and put in the bottom of your roasting pan. Then, add some water and a little bit of chicken stock. Aromatics and flavor when basting! Baste every 20 minutes and cook the last 30 minutes uncovered to get brown, crispy skin. That was a 21 pound bird with no leftovers...

I'll upload my porterhouse pictures this coming Friday! That's my Sacred Steak Night.

I didn't get a chance to watch the video when you first posted it, and almost forgot about this. I'm glad it wasn't what I thought it was going to be.

So I took this idea and decided to go to the ice cream route with it. I made a chocolate peanut butter protein ice cream. Though next time I will skip using chocolate milk, who knew it had high fructose corn syrup. Damn it is good though!!!! I prefer whey protein powder, that does fluff up well. So I went the Ice Cream route. Allows me to add in some eggs. If you are going to go ice cream, make the damn custard.

This picture is a few months old, but I just made the same thing recently. Sort of an improvised (in that I wasn't really using a recipe) chicken noodle soup. It's a whole rotisserie chicken, a few carrots, a few stalks of celery, two onions, few cloves of garlic, 6-8 cups chicken stock, half a package of egg noodles. Topped with parmesan.

    • My golf was an evolution the past 3 years but today I feel like I made a revolution. I finally managed to change my transition from shallow to steep to steep to shallow.  What lead the change was the backswing that I was working on last winter with my friend (the future pro 🙂 ) and the takeaway that we changed last month - I used to go to a cupped immediately and now I keep a bowed wrist throughout the backswing (or I at least try to).    And for the past week I was thinking about how to lead the downswing more with my hips to get them being open on impact, making room and thereby preventing the early extension. While I still didn’t change that part of the swing the thought helped me get to a change where I go to the top of the swing with my hands and then they start “backward” while I start the downswing with my lower body.    The result is that my ball flight immediately changed from a fade/slice pattern to a constant draw/hook. I feel like this will really help with my scoring as well as I will be able to better game plan      @iacas
    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
