What do you make after Christmas when you're sick of everything?

Can you tell me about your red chili with pork, raisins, and coffee?

Well isn't 98% of what's posted here a first world problem? I don't think too many people who don't get enough to eat are worried over sous vide and what went wrong with my lamb shanks and all the other minutae we post about here.

Salvaging gross breaded fish

IT WORKED! Breading came right off!

I put in fridge and scraped when it was still sort of frozen and now I have a plate of fish filets (albeit very thin ones) that I think will work just fine for my purposes.

Thanks HappyBaker and CuriousCat!

I don't need it to really. Besides, tilapia is not known for imparting a lot of flavor even when it's brand spanking new and fresh.

The breakdng is just...awful. Greasy and gummy and icky. I've already tried "working with" it without success. So I thought my best best was to get rid of it and just use the fish.

Salvaging gross breaded fish

I bought several boxes of Gortons Skillet Crisp tilapia.

I do not like the breading and I want to remove it and use the fish in a soup or curry type dish.

What would be the best way to remove the breading and repurpose this? Thaw in fridge and scrape off? Cook then scrape off? Something else?

This is supposed to cook 25 minutes so I'm not sure if it's partially cooked or raw.

Thanks in advance!

Small things I can't stand at chains or other......

We were at an Olive Garden once where they were RELENTLESSLY pushing the wine from the moment we walked in. Surprising since this is the Deep South where there are a good number of religious types even in this day and age who frown on such things. I'm not one of those but I am a grumpy person and finally I said "Look, I am a recovering ALCOHOLIC and I'd appreciate it if you would stop trying to get me to drink alcohol!" The look on that girl's face was priceless and we didn't hear another word about buying their damn wine!

What do make for dinner on a Friday night?

These are the things I can fix that are about as fast/easy as take out:

Quesadillas

Tuna salad sandwiches

Amy's black bean soup (freshened with lime and chipotles) topped with a fried egg

Grilled cheese sandwich and soup (usually my own frozen)

Pan seared fish filet (broiler) over bagged spinach, onions, and whatever veg and dressing I've got

Like someone else said, this is when I usually pull out those frozen soups, casseroles, chili, etc from the freezer.

What recipe are you lusting after but have never found the "exact" one?

I cannot make meatloaf to save my life despite hours reading chow tips about not overworking it, etc.

Starting to think over cooking is part of the problem.

What's your *personal* eggnog recipe?

Lazy boiled custard is: milk, eagle brand and vanilla pudding mix. Yeah not as good as homemade but better than the carton.

Some people are such sticklers for tradition.

But I bet none of the menfolk actually MADE that "real Christmas dinner."

In my (southern) family we don't do eggnog...we do "boiled custard." No nutmeg! No peppermint! It's eggs, milk, sugar, and vanilla. I have a bunch of recipes but it's probably way too plain for ya. We love it though.

Yeah it sounds great to me too but I'm dealing with a couple of traditionalists...kind of like the "picky friends" post unfortunately.

Just showed mom a blog with a beautiful pork roast which she said doesn't look "Christmas-y" <eye roll>

Yeah, pork tenderloin would definitely be small enough. TY!

Thinking beef or pork but so many of them seem to be ginormous cuts (crown roast etc.)
