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.

    • if you can't reach the par 4's in 2 shots, then, i dunno what to tell you, other than youre playing the wrong tees lol.  golf is hard man, eagles are tough, and hole in ones are near impossible believe it or not there are pga tour players who get a hole in one in a tour event and it's literally their first hole in one EVER, meanwhile some low handicappers have multiple hole in ones in their lifetime.  I have 0, but I'll take near par rounds over a hole in one while shooting 80 any day.   I only just this year got my first eagle after driving a 260 yard par 4 and draining a 15 foot putt.  I've started to come close on some par 5's this year too as I'm now starting to hit the green on 2nd shots, but again, my focus is not on getting the eagle but rather setting up easy birdies and making pars as my 2019 goal was to break 80, which I now do regularly, so my next goal is to shoot par on a full 70/72 course.    as far as advice goes, you probably just have to be better.  eagles start with a good drive and a solid 2nd shot.  Know your distances, and be a solid ball striker so your shots actually go those distances 80% of the time, not just once in a blue moon.  I mean, unless youre getting 3-4 birds a round, what makes you think you deserve to get eagles? 
    • Welcome to the site from a fellow, albeit more seasoned, Daytonian. 
    • Interesting. Sometimes at the range I'll play a "simulated" round. I pick a local course I know well and imagine I'm there. First hole, 399yd par 4, hit Driver from the tee. I pick a particular target that represents the fairway. How far I hit it determines the club I pull for my approach, and I pick a different target to aim at so I'm not hitting on the same line every shot. And so on.  On the green do some specific drills, like Michelson's circle drill. Also, use a couple of tees to make yourself a "gate" that is about an inch wider than your putter. Put a ball between the tees and stroke some putts. This will train you to strike the ball in the center of the putter face. Heel and toe strikes will mess with you.  In addition to sharpening your short game, if lag putting is a problem then yes, you'll have to work on it. There's a thread on the "Swing Thoughts" page, I believe, titled "Do NOT accelerate when putting", or something to that effect. I've worked on this since I read it and it has improved my putting, especially my lag putting, a lot!  Sometimes, just work on putts from 3' to 5'. If you make a bad lag, and you will, we all do, those are the ones you have to make to avoid 3 putting. And, if you stick your approach close, those are the ones you want to 1 putt. I've heard more than one pro say that it's important to see the ball go in the hole! Over and over again. Practice success!
    • I am playing a set of Mizuno MP-18 MMCs, and really like them. They have a thin cavity, thin top line, and minimal offset. The SC version would also work. New MP-20s would be similar. Also if you don't mind a bit thicker top, something like the Callaway Rogue Pros are smaller headed with very little offset.  Again every company makes a small headed cavity back at this point.  Might also want to check out some of the component options. Maltby has some heads that would fit the bill if you don't care about what name is stamped on your irons.
    • True that! There was a time when I played a lot of tennis. I, and a friend, would play almost every day after work, and we got pretty good. He was 6'3", I'm 5'9", and he liked to take me deep and charge the net, Once I figured how to hit a deep topspin lob, he stopped doing that!
