All about food.

For only the second time all summer, I prepared my supper on the grill--charcoaled. Since there's only me to cook for, I loaded the grill up. Chicken, salmon, corn on the cob, potatoes, even green beans. All but the chicken was in foil. I will get four meals out of one grilling. The corn was especially good!
Good ideas, everyone. There are so many different ways to prepare greens, and it's fun to experiment with combinations.
About 3 months ago, I decided to try being an alternate day vegetarian. Turns out, I haven't had meat in two weeks in a row. My streak will end tonight, however, with a BLT. At least the bacon is from free-range pigs, thanks to my organic farm kids.
Daniel, I don't know, but I am going by a hunch. Just as I blanch cabbage leaves before filling them with savory vegetables and rice, I assume one would blanch collard leaves as well to make them more pliable. Then proceed as usual. Let me see if I can find a recipe ... Ah!
"In a large pot of boiling salted water, over medium heat, add the collard leaves and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water."
The recipe called for sausage stuffing, however, I think a nice savory rice and vegetable stuffing and maybe even a bread stuffing would make an excellent combination.

I just never learned how to cook in the microwave. The flavors that come from a cast iron skillet or waterless cooking ware tastes good to me. I can't compare it with the microwave because I have not used it to cook, only to reheat. Is there any difference besides heat that the convection oven gives food?
Daniel, that looks so good, especially the colors and contrasts. The sriracha just makes it sparkle!
"Explosions" do happen in a microwave, but the speed, convenience, minimum electricity, etc., make it worth using. Still, I use my little convection oven a lot. My latest dish was smashingly good: macaroni, collards, tomatoes (layered) with cheese sauce and Panka poured over.
The microwave oven is where things explode. Just about everything, so I cover everything when using it. On the things that explode the worst, I put a heavy object on top of the cover.
I don't fork or knife my potatoes when baking, and never had any explode enough to make a mess. Once in a while they will split, but I've never had one explode.
It appears I'm unusual in liking the old fashioned corn much better than the new sweet kinds. I've not been able to find the kind I like at stores or the farmer's market here.
I seem to remember looking for the old fashioned seeds also without finding any. Next spring, I'm going to look again until I find some to plant.
