you can stuff it


B
efore you get all bent sideways 'stuff it' is not only a conjecture but also a process. Not all the tomatoes I picked up from the market were perfect for slicing and eating in fact I had a few romas that were a little dry and a little hollow and all that did was give me a good idea - stuff those bitches. Ugly never tasted so good!



These are stuffed with ground beef that ate grass and was euthanized and then was browned and sauted with onions and garlic and some purple basil that were always treated special that was mixed into the 5 cheeses, asiago, fontina, parmesan, provolone and ricotta produced by cows that relaxed and then baked at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes until you could scare the skin right off em' and eat em before they felt naked.




Some yukon gold potatoes were stuffed and baked with the same meat thing and served with some oniony sourcream; and while they were spanked they did turn out to be over achievers.



Couldnt leave out the plantain. The plantains were stuffed with a little bit of a different concoction of ground beef, sauteed onions and garlic, green olives and cilantro and covered in queso de oaxaca before being baked, there were no bananas hurt in the making of this dish. The moral of the story: whenever you dont know what to do - stuff it! Why have a whole meal when you can eat a meals worth of side dishes?

I obviously don't eat enough stuffed food! Is that a banana I see? love the look of the potato!

Jenn said...

Stuffed is good. All the delicious goodness inside waiting to be eaten. Yum. I haven't made anything stuffed for quite a while. I'll have to think of something for this week's dinners.

oh man, that plantain looks awesome!

Melody said...

Looks like someone got their mojo back!

Marjie said...

I actually prefer to pick at side dishes. However, with well in excess of half a ton of men to feed when they're all home, I'm a definite minority here.

doggybloggy said...

anette: get stuffing!

jenn: its like a surprise in every bite

lk: it was..

melody: not all the way...

marjie: that would be a nice number to know - the exact weight of all of you combined....over here we are probably a combination of thor and the two youngest...and that might be too high

Marjie said...

Dog: Thor and the two youngest are around 500 pounds. I don't know about you, but your lovely wife doesn't contribute too much to that total. All of us together hover somewhere between 1775 and 1800 pounds, but we're around 2025 when you add in Thor. That's a lot of bodies to feed!

Velva said...

That look fabulous! Anything stuffed is delicious. You did a great job showing us how good "stuffed" can be-
I would never thought to stuff a plantain-very creative.

Dude, you rocked my world with this post on so many levels ... the food = want and the prose = stellar. Love it all!

By the way, I owe you a BIG thanks for pointing me in the direction of Laura from "Hey What's for Dinner Mom" ... we met almost by accident at the BlogHer breakfast and spent the better part of the after-hours parties hanging out. She rocks! We got such a kick out of your having "introduced" us in a way. Thank you! :)

I don't think I like...wrinkled looking food.

I know it will taste great (that I have no doubt), just something about wrinkled looking.

I love how you describe the way the cows were treated gently before being brought to your home and plate. Makes me feel better about being a carnivore.

Joan Nova said...

You're right...you can't go wrong by stuffing something! But I must say the one that really caught my eye was the plantain. Bravo!

James P. Walsh said...
