What is your idea of amazing food?






Last nights dinner: Garden fresh grilled sweet corn, pablano's, and eggplant, Greek salad, blackberries, fresh bread, bacon and potato frittata and a cold home brew. :grin:

Oh yeah that is nice. Minus the beer for me. Water will do.

I remember eating caribou tenderloin fried up on a pan with some sliced taters over a propane heater once. It was windy and cold out on the tundra, but when I think of my favorite meals, it is in the top ten list.

It wasnt my first caribou but it was my first with a bow. I had low crawled for a quarter of mile to get into position and spent several hours stalking. The herd of caribou came right to me and I was laying flat on my back in the middle of them waiting for the right moment. The cows were all within 30-60 yards of me but the bulls were just on the outskirts of my range. They started to move out of the area and I took advantage of the only opportunity I had. 86 yards on the range finder, the bull stopped to eat and I came to full draw laying flat on my back. I did about half a sit up and released it, and it just felt right. I could see it as if it were in slow motion as the arrow tore through its rib cage.

It might not have been fine cuisine by anyone's standards...but after over a week of hard hunting...it was certainly very tasty and a moment frozen in time that I will never forget.

On a sandbar after a good morning of fishing the river. A shore lunch that's as fresh as it gets. Another is a full night of jug fishing with a good fire between runs with good friends and cold beer.

Dinner at my German neighbor's tonight:

- beer he brewed
- cheese his wife made
- bread his wife made
- home-made venison sausages on the grill
- spanikopita my daughter made
- salad the new neighbor down the lane brought
- berry crisp new neighbor down the lane brought
- more beer
- then cheese, and some port wine I made last year

An excellent time, I met the new neighbors, and we were all speaking German and drinking at the end of the evening, looking at a lovely sunset over the Pacific as the bats came out to eat all the bugs and leave us in peace.

The juices in your chin wiskers from the tenderloin of a beast you anchored just hours prior (you still wear traces of its blood and hair on your pants) with a well placed missile launched at arms length from ambush. Washed down with an intoxicating beverage at dusk, in a camp thick with the smoke of lodgepole, serenaded by a mountain stream, recounting the tale of the stalk, and good conversation with brothers.....

You got quite a way with words bro, specially since it's all for real! Hope to join you at a feast like this one day!

Wraith.....I'm with ya bro...nothing drives man like the pursuit of beast and the desire to reproduce!!! Cavemanish indeed.....and in its purest flavor!

Indeed! Fresh moose, caribou, and bear for meat. Fresh shrimp, halibut, and salmon for sea food. All of which I killed or caught myself and no other human hands have touched is my idea of good food!!

My favorite meal: A nice thick ribeye medium rare, a baked potato, maybe some green beans and a glass of unsweetened iced tea.

What may have been one of the best meals ever was a breakfast I once had while camping up on the Mogollon Rim. Simple ham and eggs with dutch oven biscuits. There was something about that meal that made it stand out. Maybe it was just the fresh air with the scent of the pines, or the company that I was with or maybe we just got lucky, but it's never been duplicated.

Since it's 7AM as I type this, nothing like waking up to a nice meal of FRESH steamed pigs blood (with plenty of scallions and a bit of white pepper) and seafood or pig liver congee!

Venison tenderloin cooked rare in a reduction of Carmenere, garlic, butter and cracked black pepper. Fresh baked bread, green beans almondine, and a fresh salad. Serve it with a glass of Carmenere and a glass of Kelt cognac to settle the meal!

I'm with fldback on the medium rare Ribeye, only I like mine with sauteed mushrooms and onions. Green beans OK, but for now I'll pass on the baked potato... Sticking to a lower carb diet.

That sounds great to me, but I think I'd go for a baked sweet potato. :yumyum:

A mess of pan fried walleye, fried potatoes, some corn on the cob, and whatever else from the refrigerator that needs cleaned up from Grandma's kitchen. And Grandpa griping about how rotten the democrats are...

They're both gone now, he was my first and last fishing buddy. From the gulf of mexico to darn near the arctic circle. He made it to 81 and she made it to 92. No complaints.

You know, the ladies here keep telling all the youngins they need to spend a couple weeks with Eric so they can learn to become men. I'm beginning to see why. I think I need a couple weeks too, my tastiest dish is spicey chicken fajitas with guacamole made from Safeway's finest, and a simple tall glass of tea.
Of course, a good pot roast with mash potatoes and gravy is also high on the list! But then, I am a picky eater.

My wife and kid are canning most of the day today, so the kitchen looked to be a bit of a disaster, and dinner uncertain.

So this afternoon, I cut up some beef from a local rancher down the road into cubes, seared it in a pot on my BBQ grill, then slowly cooked some onions in the pot, threw the beef back in and a tablespoon of flour, along with some carrots, a bit of fresh herbs, then a few minutes later poured in a bottle of my own wine. Then I lobbed it into the oven set to about 250 degrees, and am letting it simmer covered for 4-5 hours.

Total expended effort was a couple of minutes, result will be a nice beef stew, and I didn't get in anyone's way and get accidentally canned or something. The house will smell nice all day, the ladies think I'm a hero, and I can slack :-)

+1 for venison tenderloin, cut straight from a freshly killed whitetail, floured and pan fried in butter after the morning hunt!

Nothing beats that bro. Even if it is bear tenderloin it is still awesome eating it fresh right after the kill.

Ah, psoas muscle. I mean, tenderloin.

I guess it is an occupational hazard that I tend to look at pieces of meat and think of their anatomical names, rather than their butcher names, huh? :mischievous:

Slightly unnerving...and Hannibal Lecter'ish... :paranoid:

It's not like I mentioned fava beans & a nice Chianti.

Oh, I guess I just did.

Haha!!

:yikes: Note to self, keep an eye on the good Doctor around dinner time...or if stranded with him in the bush. :scared:

Would this be a good time to mention that April 21-22 2012 is in the middle of crawfish season?

Iím sure that Jon knows a local Orange Texas establishment where the beer is cold and the crawfish are spicy?
