Ok, maybe I'm just bored at work. Since this group is from all parts of the World/Universe this might be fun.

What are your favorite snacks/local recipes that you enjoy while drinking.

I'll start it off http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Here's a good Salsa recipe -

Darth_Mahl[MU]'s Salsa

Three fresh ripe Roma tomatoes, a quarter to half a white onion, two to four fresh Jalepenos or(half a Habanero), a pinch of salt, a bit of lemon or lime juice and a handful of fresh Cilantro.

I just cut everything into small chunks (remove seeds from peppers), squeeze a little bit of the lime or lemon juice over everything, throw in the Cilantro(love that cilantro) and salt and chop with a hand powered Salsa Maker or food processor.
This makes a nice bowlfull that will keep 2-4 people busy drinking for awhile http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

p.s. Thanks Helevitia, I'm now hooked on Sierra Nevada Pale Ale http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Ahh yes, Beans must be an International staple of poor students...LOL

I remember those days well... My room mates and I waiting for a big pot of pinto beans to finish cooking. Afterwards the windows were opened and no one was allowed to light anything (no open flames)...LOL

Drinking snacks, er, hmmm.. Every now and again it's the salsa thing, if not just eating Jalepenos directly to see who makes a face, otherwise it's raid the fridge, end up doing things like cooking pork chops at 4 in the morning. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

So you have never spoken to God on the big white phone?

Not even after a few too many pints?

Mmmmm...all this talk of food made me make pizza last night. I made the dough from scratch, and it came out nice and soft...ooh its so good.

I used a thick layer of slightly diluted tomato paste (it makes a much better sauce than tomato sauce or spaghetti sauce). Then added a some spices to it. Pepperoni and motzerella(?) cheese to top it off.

Man that's some good stuff. And I haven't made pizza in YEARS! I need to do it more often. And since it takes an hour to order from Pappa Johns or Pizza Slut, I can have my pizza ready in a little longer time. Too bad I'm writing this at work or I'd go get some now.

Jammrock - who loves making his own damn food, cause it tastes better.
