The hamburgers were pretty good, mixed with salt and pepper and medium rare. i topped them with bacon and some shallots and homemade burger sauce (mayo, soy sauce, worchestire sauce, and a little brown sugar). The salt and vinegar chips however weren’t as crispy as I’d like them to be…i need to invest in a mandolin for slicing and figure out a better way to get the vinegar into the chips beside cooking them.
Tip Sirloin / Mashed Cauliflower / Steamed Brocolli
Today I decided to devote the afternoon to cooking a steak. Unfortunately my bank account only allowed me to select tip sirloin, but no problem, I thought…I’ll give it a good salt rub to tenderize the meat and we’ll be back in business. I brought it home and threw some kosher salt on both sides to bring out the juices. Along with the kosher salt I added a bit of parsley and some rosemary and just let it sit for a little while. After a pat dry I grilled it up and it was delish. More tender than you’d expect and way juicy.
I am on a quest to make a homemade dish every day for the month of November. Today it was Coco’s birthday lunch so i made
Salmon with Cucumber Salad Linguini with Mushrooms
I felt I could have cooked the Salmon a minute or two longer, but it had the nice browned crust that is so tasty. The cucumber salad in lemon vinaigrette was delish but I hate when I force myself to julienne things because I don’t have the right kitchen utensils or the knife skills really. Maybe by the end of the month?
The goal of motion pictures is not to recreate reality, it’s not even to show reality. I want to create a little psychic link between you and my pictures. I want to suck you into the world of the story, suspend your disbelief and make you forget about yourself and your life and just be in the moment of the film.
By not showing enough visual information, we force the brain into filling in the gaps… it draws you in even more. It’s part of how you let go to the point where you can laugh or cry or feel tense or afraid or elated.
