Cooking with Paper : Cod en Papillote

Photobucket

Hello my good people! How are you today? Are you having the chillest, laziest, best weekend ever? No? I am! Today I even took a three hour nap. Three hours! I fell asleep with E!’s Oscar special on and I dreamt that I was working some gigantic jewelry diamond expo and I was assigned to handle Madonna, and she was such a bitch and made me run around looking for 1920’s jewelry. Yeah, it was weird.

Anyways, a few days ago I was inspired to cook something healthy and easy. At that point, I had been gorging on seriouslyawfulbutofcoursedelicious food for days and my body was begging for mercy. I went to the supermarket and went straight to fish counter and asked my oh-so-sweet counter dude, what’s the freshest today? He said COD! COD! COD! Okay fine, he didn’t say it like that.

So I got the cod, which by the way did look super sexy and fresh. As I was walking around the aisles, I saw a box of parchment paper. A-ha! I figured I was going to roast the fish (healthiest, most delicious thing ever) and upon seeing the parchment paper I immediately knew I was going to do it en-papillote style. I know, check me out with my fancy culinary lingo. I’m Joooooooooooolia Childs!

Cooking en-papillote is super easy. It’s mess free, fast, healthy, and babes, so dramatic. When you open that pouch on the table and you take a whiff of the aroma released right under your nose… aaaah. It’s sinful really. Anyways, when I got the cod and decided to cook it in this way, it was a bit of an experiment. I had never done it before, and I don’t even have a recipe for one. I figured it’d be easy enough, and that I would take pictures just in case it came out decent and blogable. So the fact that I am writing this, obviously means that it came out good and that I am a kitchen genius. Bow before me, you peasants!

Just kidding! It did came out good, but it could’ve been a lot better. I learned a few things along the way and I figured that you guys would enjoy this recipe. So let’s do this!

Easy Peasy Puttanesca: Spaghetti of the Whores

Photobucket

I have spent the last month eating and forgetting to blog about it. I am a bad, bad food blogger, flogger if you will, you can punish me if you want.

Because I’ve spent the last month eating well and getting real obese, this month I am not. The money well is completely drained, and all there’s left is canned food. Oy vey! But no worries, there’s always puttanesca: The naughtiest of all pasta. Based on my very extensive five minute research (which was really just reading this Wikipedia page), the name of this dish translates to “Whore’s Spaghetti”. How bold! How refreshing!

Good Dogs Bad (Photo) Jobs

Photobucket

Update: Some photos have been anonymized by request of disgruntled party. All “Mr. Manfriend” references have now been replaced with “SOMEDUDE”. Thank you.

This entry is about the best hot dogs I’ve ever had..so far anyways! After this experience I am now officially a hot dog connoisseur. Yup! No more street dogs from them NYC carts (always next to the raunchy smelling peanut carts by the way), only “gourmet” dogs for me from now on!
