LUTEFISK. Hai O.. Hai O.. Off to cook i go..


AT LONG LAST..

DONE ALL MY PAPER WORKS !


AM VERY HAPPY OF COURSE...




smile.. an everlasting smile..
NOW back to cook VARIETIES 
NO bbq 4me just yet,
fire flames very hot… oops!!


kitchen heat turns my eyes amber green-
how i wish i have permanent
amber green eyes..
rare amber green eyes
no... not like cats.. never
STILL THINKING WHAT TO COOK….. hmmmm ….. hmmm down memory lane.. for someone who just came out from amnesia. I kept remembering food quotes instead of recipes
I hEARD THE QUOTE SAID:
??? “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade -quote

ha ha lemon is  a great detox, but no thanks, am not in a sour mood now.
THINK, THINK AGAIN… ok desperado,, 
think , think…

The hardness of the butter is proportional to the softness of the bread-“ quote.
How can I handle this messy quote…. Proportional? Big joke buddy, no thanks,  butter and bread don’t mix well in texture.. marmalade ok. ha ha
Hai O.. Hai O…
Off to cook I go…
Hai O… Hai O..
Cook What? I don’t know-
Sudden pangs of hunger hit me now, no breakfast yet and it’s almost lunch hour. No wonder,  brains falling out… see you later, I eat first.. 

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree”- quote
The cream rises to the top…..quote   
But I am not in the mood for cream, so forget the apple cream recipe. 
Messy cooking… don’t even know where to start... 
Good excuse for me is that, apples don’t grow locally here, hence the reason why I know nuts about apples.
 I don’t buy those imported apples, they are all covered with wax!!!

 Dont believe me? Take an apple and put it near your laptop. Leave it there, after 2 weeks, notice it’s shiny and taut skin- green or red- Cut it open, you will find it’s rotten oreidiiiii.
"An apple a day keeps the doctor away"- quote
Remember the song? Ahhh SHUT UP ON YOUR FACE !!!!- quote
After eating, now I find my brain turbo-charged with energy and the protein, was a good meal, that quickie egg salad with a splash of chili sauce burger was delicious… that’s how much a human need to eat food, to sustain life.
I eat whatever is given to me , can’t afford to be choosy, I am just thankful for whatever food God gives me- simple or gourmet, I just accept .. x mono, but varieties. 

It scares the hell out of me, if God doesn’t give me any food to eat. It reminds me of that "african child" pic. God has ordained it such that we must eat, what to do… I can’t be arrogant and think that cooking is not important.. cos food is important. 
If i eat too much that is greedy, I may just deserve to grow fat. In this world, moderation is the best way of life...Quality life. 
                           SHE'S CHUBBY, NOT FAT=
Brain functioning- a humor on food.
Hey, I found out this food.. from my good friend wiki, wanna share with you:

LUTEFISK:
Yes, a salted whitefish and lye. Dish from the Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Mid West US
Lye is a corrosive alkaline substance (caustic soda/ sodium hydroxide).
Briefly- Traditionally, the fish is soaked in water for 5 days and another 2 days in lye. Plus 5days. An extremely strong and pungent odor is produced. Normally cod or lingfish are used. Pollock or haddock has less odor.

At this stage, half of the protein gone, they now looked like jelly and pale. Rinse the salt, wrap lutefisk in cheesecloth and steam-cooked/ baked. Watch over and remove it before it falls apart.
Do not use sterling silver cooking utensils or platter, it will be permanently ruined. Use stainless steel or ceramics instead.

Serve with side dish..examples: butter, cheese, meatballs, potatoes, meat, peas.. white sauce spiced with pepper is used to enhance flavor. They then Enjoy.

HUMOR
QUOTES ON LUTEFISK:
Quote from Garrison Keillor's book, Lake Wobegon days:
“Every Advent we entered the purgatory of lutefisk, a repulsive gelatinous fishlike dish that tasted of soap and gave off an odor that would gag a goat”.
Quote from Garrison Keillor’s book, Pontoon:
Lutefisk looks like the desiccated cadavers of squirrels run over by trucks.
Interview with Jeffrey Steigarten, author of The Man Who Ate Everything:
Some people say that they like lutefisk. Do you think they tell the truth?
I do not know. Of all food, lutefisk is the only one that I don't take any stand on. I simply cannot decide whether it is nice or disgusting,   Lutefisk is an example of food that almost doesn't taste like anything, but is so full of emotions that the taste buds get knocked out. Lutefisk is not food, it is a weapon of mass destruction.
TO MY OPINION, WHEN YOU SAY A FOOD HAS NO TASTE, IT MEANS, THE FOOD TASTES LIKE PAPER !!! that's all there is to it.
MODERN CONSUMPTION- Lutefisk, now a meal that is becoming increasingly trendy..
I kind of like my earlier post on ice cream.. many useful facts in there. You may check this out at “LINKS TO MY RECIPES” at my sidebar.. while I relax … Too many blueberry ice cream turns me purple. Trying out my NEW  thinking cap now.. new season of foodies for me.
YES!! YES!!, amnesia gone… I know what to fix, but not today, time constraint oreidi ….
SEE YOU NEXT POST.   HAVE A NICE DAY
WHAT YOU SEE, WHAT YOU HEAR ....    WHEN YOU LEAVE, LEAVE IT HERE......
