Care to elaborate on future uses of our photos? Plan on making a gallery of our pictures? Or something else? I've just curious to know.

I'm probably going to copy all the images, resize, and repost them on this thread so the images will stay up as long as Cooking For Engineers does. That way we can all look back on this fondly Smile

Depending on if they work out, it's possible that I could do T-Shirts or something in the future. Any other ideas?

(Edit note: this doesn't look very good on the site because of the forum formatting. Go look at it there if you want all of the pretty stuff).

I'll do one better. Not only do I have a picture (two, actually) of something I've cooked, but I'll include a recipe! It's not a very "engineering" approach, nor is it formatted appropriately for the site, but what the heck?

Pictures:


More at My flickr, cookingforengineers set

Recipe:
Ingredients:

  • 1 Onion. I prefer red, but white or yellow work as well
  • Half a head of garlic
  • 10 white mushrooms
  • 1 lb ground beef (90/10 or 95/5 beef/fat)
  • 28 oz. canned diced tomatoes
  • 28 oz. canned tomato sauce
  • 12 oz. canned tomato paste
  • Spices (pepper, salt, Italian seasoning, basil)
  • Balsamic vinegar (optional, but tasty)
  • 1 lb. pasta, your choice (Farfalle is my choice tonight)
  • Parmesan cheese. Do us all a favor and don't use the stuff in the green can tonight. I buy grated three-cheese blend from the store

Steps:
Prep
Dice the onion into small pieces. Mince the garlic into the smallest bits you can within reason. Rinse and slice the mushrooms.

Brown the meat
Heat a large pot (5-6 qt.) over medium-high heat. Once it's hot, toss in the ground beef. Add:

  • Half of the garlic
  • Some salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Italian seasoning to taste. I would guess I put in ~2 tablespoons.

Once it's started to brown, pour in ~2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (if you're using it), the rest of the garlic and the onion. Continue cooking until the beef is cooked through.

Add the sauce
Reduce heat to medium. Add canned tomato stuff (diced, sauce, paste). Once it comes to a simmer, add in the mushrooms and some more spices. I'd suggest some more pepper, salt, and Italian seasoning. Go easy for now, you can always add more.

Once the sauce starts to bubble, reduce the heat to low. You want it to lightly simmer. On my stove, this is just a touch above the lowest flame it will give me.

At this point, the sauce is "ready". The more it simmers, the better it is. I would suggest half an hour as a good starting point. When you're getting hungry, make the pasta. I estimate 15-20 minutes for the pasta to happen (from starting the water to pouring into a colander).

Assemble
Toss a serving of pasta into a bowl, spoon some sauce on top, and sprinkle generously with cheese. Nom. Adding a slice of bread or two is nice, though it's adding more carbs to an already heavy meal.

Store
Unless you've got a big group to feed, this will leave you with a lot of sauce leftover. Spoon it into containers and freeze it in 1-2 serving portions. It thaws easily and reheats well in the microwave, or on the stovetop. There, quick dinner for several nights!

Lots of fun Smile
Always liked slice and bake cookies and it's much more fun when you make your own designs. A bit harder to do that many letters out of one recipe, but at least letters are fairly simple.



While I was at it took other pictures too, here's the in-progress when I started slicing: http://img.movoda.net/ghktbpd5.jpg and all the extra letters I ended up with at the end: http://img.movoda.net/x6itfxy3.jpg

Feeding the mind and your tummy:




I really shouldn't put a bowl of oats and cranberries on a bed and expect it to stay there:




I have a few more ideas that I'll try to add later. Smile
