After the other thread got locked I decided it was time to re-create it agian after some down time. Also I have news: I have begun to take up cocktail making and bartending. I am attempting to create a list of things I can make:

Bloody Mary
Scotch and Water
Gin and Tonic
Martini
Mint Julep
Daiquiri
White/Back Russian/Irish

This list will hopefully continue to grow.

Alright, now I will also lay out my next meal plan:

First Corse: Carpaccio

Main Course: Lamb Stew

Dessert: Ice Cream Soda

Everything else I have made before except for the Carpaccio. Ill give you the recipe for a very basic lamb stew that I made:


Lamb Stew

3 Lbs of Lamb
4 carrots
4 Stalks of Celery
6 Potatoes
Rosemary
1 Large Vidalia Onion
Thyme
2 cloves of Garlic
2 quarts of Chicken Broth
1/2 cup Red Wine
Flour


Coat the Lamb in Flour and brown in a large Dutch Oven. Take the lamb out. De-Glaze with 1/2 cup of red wine and begin to simmer the Garlic, Carrots and Onion. Add the lamb back. Wait until reddish sauce forms on the clear onions. Add the Chicken Broth. Reduce an inch. Add the Rosemary and Thyme. Simmer for 15 minutes. Take Rosemary and Thyme out and add Potatoes and celery. Simmer for 1 hour and serve with bread for dipping.


Ice Cream Soda

3 parts Ice Cream (any flavor)
1 part milk
Whipped Cream


Blend in a blender, our into a glass and use Whipped Cream to make a dome. Grate chocolate over it.

I guess you could spike this with a couple ounces of Gin or Vodka but I have never tried it.

Hmm.... Thats a good point, something crunchy something hard....
Hmmmm I have a couple ideas, lemme think for a minute.

crunchy could work but i'm not the biggest fan of massive texture changes. which is why i went to pasta as it is substantial and a filling food yet has a similar texture to gaspacho, milkshakes and some lamb stews.

hmmm hm. It will be good because you have the smooth Gazpacho followed by a slightly heavier pasta salad before the chunky heavy stew. Perfect.

Oh, carry on then.

Just a little cooking tidbit to be safe: Stew is always a fantastic idea, it is hearty, can be used for Lunch or Dinner, cheap, easy to prepare and it easy to time: Just cook it hours before you want to use it and then heat it up agian!

Hm..... thats a good point, but it would be nice to build up with Smooth Gazpacho to pasta salad to heavy stew and finish with a smooth and creamy Milkshake. The whole point of my being able to make a 5-course meal is because of how easy it is and baking a pie isnt easy.

Very true...I'm just thinking if I'm eating Gazpacho then pasta salad and then stew and then a milkshake! Just seems like a lot of liquids...More than I prefer...

But it still all sounds really good...

i'm intrigued by the fact that you use Gin, but that sounds kinda bland...here's a the recipe i've been using:

Mr & Mrs T's Bloody Mary Mix (bold and spicy sounds good, but i always get the original, so i can add my own spices...btw, this is just the name for the base, not the entire recipe...its in most liquor stores)
Vodka
ice
worstechire sauce
lemon juice
tobasco sauce
celery salt

and then whatever you want for garnish...pickles are always good, but if you can find pickled okra, those are GREAT in a bloody mary.

After the other thread got locked I decided it was time to re-create it agian after some down time. Also I have news: I have begun to take up cocktail making and bartending. I am attempting to create a list of things I can make:

Bloody Mary





hey, what do you put in your bloodys?


6oz V8 Juice
6 Ice Cubes
3oz of Gin
Lime Juice
Slice of Lime
Celery Stick

i'm intrigued by the fact that you use Gin, but that sounds kinda bland...here's a the recipe i've been using:

Mr & Mrs T's Bloody Mary Mix (bold and spicy sounds good, but i always get the original, so i can add my own spices...btw, this is just the name for the base, not the entire recipe...its in most liquor stores)
Vodka
ice
worstechire sauce
lemon juice
tobasco sauce
celery salt

and then whatever you want for garnish...pickles are always good, but if you can find pickled okra, those are GREAT in a bloody mary.

I think Gin is better than Vodka but yours sounds amazing, I've just taken it up so its not too exotic as of now. Thanks for the recipe.

They actually taste pretty good, the V8 is usually too salty but the gin and ice and lime juice help to dull it just right.

dude, i actually hate tomato juice more than anything. I NEVER thought I'd be a Bloody Mary drinker. but, a good Bloody Mary will not taste too much like tomato juice. can't describe what it tastes like, but it rocks. there are only 2 bars in green bay that i ever order 'em in (nothing worse than a bad bloody). And i'll drink the ones i make myself with the recipe listed above.

no prob, lemme know if you try it.
I've actually never had a bloody with gin, but i'll have to try it now because Gin & Tonics are my favorite mixed drink and I've been looking for something else to use Gin in. I'd probably have to alter the recipe because, while vodka is good with a salty drink, gin is a lot more citrusy (did i just invent a word?) and might not be that good with my recipe.

well, i don't make martinis for a couple reasons:
-you have to get top shelf liquor for them to be tolerable, which gets expensive.
-i don't own a martini shaker.
-martini glasses don't fit in my car's cup holder (just kidding)
-i'm not that fancy.

but, when i'm at a bar that serves martinis (which rarely happens) i get 'em with gin. like i said before, i like the taste of a good gin, but gin & tonics and martinis are the only thing i've used gin in.

I never had a Martini myslef I was just going to suggest you use Gin if you had been using Vodka in them. As I said my knowledge of mixing drinks is limited and I really dont know that many drinks to mix Gin in.

As for Martinis i make mine the way Churchill made his. Poor some gin in a glass and show it the vermouth from the otherside of the room. Even though the original martinis are with vodka i use gin.

Swiss Cheese
Turkey
Mayo

What's the best sandwich I can make using these ingredients? (and no, not using ALL of them)

I want to take a shot at this.
NO PBJ

Umm toasted bread w/ turkey, lettuce , mayo and cheese put on afterwards (toasting)
Same thing but w/ toasting the cheese w/ the bread

nope original martinis were you take a glass, dunk it into some vermouth for the smell, then poor the vermouth out and pour in vodka.

as for the meal i gues you should change the desert then. depending on her diet you might wanna reconsider the pasta as well.

Dr. Atkins actually did die of a heart attack, or heart complications, while being obese. The Atkins diet is total bull and works on the premice of shocking your body into loosing weight.

Unfortunately my mom threw away the recipe so i'll have to ask my friend for it again. I mean it even made store bought pasta amazing.

I dont like curry a lot but if you find the recipe I might try it.


Tomorrow I will make the stew and gazpacho and let them sit overnight. I will see if I can get some pictures of the stew and soup for you guys. In the meantime:
