*****Official Food Experimentation Thread*****

My New Year's Resolution is to make something I've never made before at least twice a week. This is three-fold benefit for me: (1) by forcing myself to cook more, I'll eat out less, which will in turn (2) help to eat more healthily; and (3) I'll open myself up to more kinds of foods and different recipes and, hopefully, find some new "go-to" meals when I'm lazy and need something quick and easy.

But part of this is learning to play with my food, and today I'm starting that by making carbonated fruit. I've got some dry ice that I'll put with some cut-up fruit into a plastic bottle. As the dry ice melts, the CO2 will pressurize the chamber and force itself into the fruit.

And since I have dry ice, experiment No. 2 will be homemade sorbet or ice cream made with dry ice.

So my challenge to my fellow ChiefsPlanet foodies is to play around this year and make something different. And post about it here.

At some point, I'm going to do some molecular gastronomy type food - playing around with agar agar, spherification, and the like. And I'm gonna do squid ink pasta, because what's more beautiful than that gorgeous deep black glistening pasta on a white plate?

Sounds great. How many different versions of Adobo have you gotten to try? I've got my favorite (it's a non-coconut milk version), but I'm always looking to try others.

Experimenting here tomorrow night. My kids and I made a decision after we knew that my wife was pretty much going to be recovering most of the holiday break that we were going to have a Harry Potter marathon. I tok it upon myself to do some research and hook the kids up with hot and cold butter beers.

Haven't tackled it yet, but picked up ingredients today. Shooting for one or two of these recipes here: Link

I love that show so it definitely caught my eye. I've made spaghetti with homemade sauce before so I was surprised how a recipe this simple could be so game changing. Butter was a real nice touch.

Turned out really good. Peeling and seeding the tomatoes was a pain in the ass. Next time I won't rush it.

Were trying pork carnitas tomorrow. We browned the pork tonight and heavily seasoned it. Put it in the crock pot with garlic and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and chicken broth.

If it turns out looking like this I'll be happy with it.

Neither one of us care for light turkey meat, so for xmas and thanksgiving I cut the breasts out and just cooked the legs/thighs/wings. So we were stuck with these breasts in the freezer. I had an epiphany, sausage. I had a pound or so of pork shoulder left over from carnitas a while back. I added some paprika, anise, salt, pepper, and ground dried chiles to a cup of merlot, then ground 4:1 turkey to pork (roughly 5 lbs), about 5 chiles,and half a head of garlic. mixed it all up and it was great. Had some over angelhair with a pesto, made breakfast sandwiches with it, but I've also just been snacking on it. I wouldn't mind finding some casings and smoking a bit too. Any ideas for the other turkey breast?

Awesome. Did you cut an x on the tomatoes then blanch them? Skin will peel right off and once you cut the tomatoes, should be easy to scoop out seeds. If you're using canned, I usually use San Marzano tomatoes.
