Dinner Ideas

Guys, I haven't been on here in a while. And by that, I mean maybe 3 weeks. As I go through the new format of the site and read some recent forum posts, nothing has changed. Too old for _? What should I wear? College ___ or college?

Starting a completely random thread - after your workday ends, what would you recommend for dinner, assuming you'd go home and cook it yourself?

I'll start. Make your standard BLT (bacon, lettuce, tomato for you foreigners), but make that a BALT (avocado) and use some sort of spicy or chipotle mayo. I like to use whole wheat bread, spinach for the lettuce (or a mix), and I like to cook the bacon but not until it's crispy. Not a fan of crispy bacon. That shit is the bee's knees, and it's a pretty cheap meal if you think of $ per serving.

TBH after my workday ends i usually have already eaten dinner and go to bed.... but on the few days my workday ends before dinner I try to hit the gym first and eat a later dinner full of calories and protein (this doesn't have to mean fat) - like a nice big chicken kabob plate, or chipotle, or a protein shake on the way to a place where i get salmon and veggies, or a steak plate. sumpin like that.

Chicken breasts marinated in BBQ, and sweet potatos and broccoli on the side. As simple as it is tasty.

A fresh hamburger with a bunch of veggies.

Pan seared salmon and some sort of salad (not a boring salad).

Good call! I like to play around with salads just to add some variety, but any veges are good.

Bison Fillet. Season with salt and pepper. Put olive oil in an already hot pan. Put garlic cloves (don't bother crushing or anything) and thyme sprigs in the oil and a bit of worcestershire sauce on the fillet. Sear the fillet on all sides, leaning the pan away from you so that the oil is all on the fillet and you're using the bottom and the sides of the pan. Throw a bit of butter in there and when it melts into the oil, continuously spoon it on top of the fillet.

After it is seared on all sides, put the garlic and the thyme in the middle of the pan like a nest and put the fillet on top. Then, put the whole pan into the oven until your desired done-ness. Take it out, put it on a cutting board, and cover with foil for 10 minutes. Then slice and eat.

He's actually who I got it from. His youtube is awesome if you know how to cook already and are looking for ideas.

Agree 100%. His youtube channel has really amazing recipes from all cuisines. Of course, he won't walk you through it, but once you know the basics, you only need an iPad while you cook some amazing dishes.

Definitely try to make your own pasta if you ever get around to it.

Medium steak topped with a pair of bulls-eyes, sunny side up, with a really small side of guacamole. Just a personal recipe of mine that I tried when I first dipped my toes into cooking, and loved the result.
