This is a blog for people to discuss what they are eating. There is a theory that by journaling eating habits, people will eat healthier. I am trying to cook more at home and feed my family a wider variety of foods. People can just read or join as co-authors. Topics don't have to be recipes with nice photos. You can write about eating habits, special diets, culinary cultural differences, etc.

Kobe (sort of) roast beef

Think I am enjoying cooking and blogging this holidays?? Really, I am having so much fun doing both. They are my hobbies!! This is a tiny little beef roast, frozen and precooked. The brand is called KOBE, but it ain't no real Kobe beef. Real Kobe beef has fat and lean perfectly marbled and is the most tender meat ever imagined. This cow was probably Australian.
We got it from our credit card company... hard to explain but if you spend over a certain amount annually, you become a preferred customer and you get a catalogue to choose a gift. I threw away the box and instructions so I had no how to cook this precooked but obvious still very rare roast. I ended up just slicing up the whole thing and microwaving it. Turned out perfect!

I sauteed cabbage, potato and Polish sausage, seasoned simply only with salt and pepper. The salad is lettuce, cherry tomatoes, fresh parmesan and proscuitto ham. Dressing is balsamico vinegar, olive oil, grainy mustard, a little salt, sugar and pepper. Shake it all up. Also made garlic butter buns.

Reina skipped out on the roast. Rio on the salad but there was enough stuff they did like to make this other enjoyable meal. Too bad when school and work starts, I won't have the time and energy for these types of meals. Sniffle, sniffle.

Beef and it runs red. I am drooling. Was it as good as it looks. The whole meal looks and sounds wonderful. Beef, cabbage, polish sausage yum yum.

Haven't thought about Polish sausage with cabbage but....a cafe here sautes their cabbage in bacon grease (not too much) and it's wonderful. Guess the sausage would give it the same type of flavor. Love sausages, except chorizo (made the mistake of reading the ingredients and it lists EVERYTHING) and anything else that goes into detail.

Looks yummy. Tricia, I can't believe you never did cabbage with polish sausage. Me and Pete love that stuff. I like it with potato added in, but Pete likes it just cabbage and sausage.
I don't care what's in the chorizo, it's tasty. Besides... most all sausage is made with stuff we wouldn't normally eat if we knew it was there. :) Just don't read the package.
I'm so sorry you won't be able to follow up on your hobbies when work starts back. I hope you will still participate in this wonderful forum you created for us all.
