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.

    • Hi,  I'm a woman, 6' tall. It's all about swing speed, what feels good, and how well you can control it. Rogues are on sale right now and they're a good driver. I assume that's your reason for choosing them. The men's Callaway Rogue driver is 45.5". The women's is 44.5". But there really is no standard. It's all about what works best for you.  I play a Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic and cut the shaft to 44.5" for control. I use a "men's" R shaft because of my swing speed which is in the low mid-90s.  If yours is in the range of 80 - 95 you can use a Regular flex shaft. If it's in the 75 - 85 mph range you can use a men's light flex shaft (they don't call it senior anymore... lol because people don't want to feel old). Women's flex is for speeds below 75.  You'll find this out when you go on a launch monitor at the golf shop. You'll do this before you buy the club, right? Make sure you're fit for the club. Here's the deal, if the 45.5" is too long, you can always have the shaft "butt cut" 1". It will make the club feel lighter to swing but won't reduce the mass of the club head at all. You do not have to add lead tape to the club head and bring up the swing weight. But before you do that I'd wrap some electrical tape around the butt end of the grip about 1/8" thick with the bottom of that 1" down from the end of the grip. Then take it to the range, maybe play a practice round or two with it and see if you like that. If you liked it better longer, it's easy to remove the tape. 
    • This isn't poor etiquette. It's common sense. The only time this is an issue is if you strike when someone else finally decides to strike at that same moment after 30 practice swings. Then it's your fault for sure
    • Most golfers select a SW for the bunker conditions they face most often. Then, you can make adjustments for the odd course you play. If you normally have firm sand and play a course with soft sand, you can still get it out if you have good technique - you may not get it as close. It's about trade-offs. Not that many amateur players have a second SW with different bounce.
    • In high school I learned with the interlocking grip which was never comfortable for me.  Years later after reading Hogan I switched to the overlapping grip.  This took a year or two before I was comfortable, but still felt better for me. My hands are about the same size as "The Golden Bear's" which is average to small.   As I got older, I wasn't comfortable again so about 10-15 years ago I switched to the ten finger grip. Now in my mid-60's, this is very comfortable for me. Each change took a year or two before it felt natural.  Enjoy the progress of your adjustments.  There are other changes too as we get older, strengths, injuries, flexibility, aggressiveness, etc that require us to make modifications in how we play this great game. 
    • ??? A local high school coach who was once a 5 index golfer would say that. I hope that was some sort of typo or something.
