I LOVE onions!
@AntiM, soap...agreed!
I know they put it in everything and it annoys me. It's easy to skim it off the top of Vietnamese noodles (never knew cilantro was Vietnamese, why the hell is it in their soup??) and Murrietta's will make whatever you want without it. :D

@Prospero, like Boijoy said, it's in everything here. I've tried it again and again and again....I'm still not a fan.

Ewwww, count me in that 10%! People who love it (seemingly, the other 90%), seem to pile it on! It really pisses me off when people ruin guacamole with that nastiness. Blech!

Back to the topic, I made a huge batch of Tabouli (minus cilantro :wink: ), it lasted all week in the fridge and everybody seemed to like it.


how the hell do you live in Reno & not like cilantro?? It's on everything here!! and onions.

It has nothing to do with where you live. It's genetic. And they put that crap on everything in the San Francisco Bay Area, too.

See that's the attitude that makes people say things like "Cilantro Intolerents Intolerence is the last socially permissible predudice."

Could it be connected to the fact that it's also called "Chinese Parsley"?

Premake your food, vacuum seal it, then freeze those mofos. Depending on what you make and if you need extra prep, garnish, etc. most of your time will only be spent boiling those bags in hot water. No mess, use the same water for multiple meals and have great food.

In years past I've made:
Chicken Tikka Masala
Chili
Avocado Cucumber soup
Hummus
Guac
Mixed Veggies
Mac n Cheese with Bacon
Watermelon Soup
Chicken Cacciatore
BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches (Don't vacuum your buns)
Chinese Mushroom, Asparagus, Broccoli in soy sauce
Bruschetta w/ Tomatos, Basil & Fresh Mozz

Fresh fruit & veggies are going to be tough to keep if you arrive early in the week for a dinner on Friday.

It's kind of limitless but you have to keep it all frozen until you're ready. I typically cook up a bunch of rice and freeze them in small packets. Sometimes it's just easy to heat up rice, pour some soy sauce on it and eat it with bacon.

ohhhhhhh bacon.

Note to self:
After M&G follow Zenoboy home.
Keep an eye on his kitchen, randomly show up every time something smells good.

We do a pretty decent dinner every night, but Fri and Sat night dinners are the biggest cause we invite all our neighbors over and cook most EVERYTHING that's left.
This usually consists of Fish, ribs, steak, mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, salad, bread and last year we threw crawfish bread into the mix ( a dish that anyone whos been to Jazzfest in New Orleans is probably familiar with).
Though we've always managed to eat like this on the Playa over the last decade thanks to a Foodsaver vacuum sealer (cant say enough about those) and keeping the coolers iced, the last few years we,ve had the added benefit of a fully loaded toy hauler.

Point being, with a foodsaver and a litle planning, you can pull off whatever you want on the Playa, whenever you want to do it.

It took a long time before I could eat cilantro.

We do an informal pot luck a couple of times. Korean riblets, tritip, not very vegan, but those with vegan tastes can bring that. I like potlucks. Good variety.
