What dishes/foods can you eat on a weekly basis, if not daily basis ?

LotusRapper Dec 14, 2013 04:44 PM

- Vietnamese pho
- Chickpea dal
- Palak paneer
- Chinese boiled dumplings
- Taiwanese beef noodles
- Fried chicken
- Cabbage rolls
- Chicken mole
- Moussaka
- Chicken pot pie
- Singaporean chicken rice/Hainan chicken rice
- BBQ brisket

I have more, but the list would be too long. If/when I win the lottery, I'd hire a home chef to make these on a daily rotation :-)

What's yours ?

    Eggs - any which way - frittata, omelet, fried, scrambled, boiled
    Chicken or turkey breast - I actually really enjoy both and eat them every day often by choice

    Also here's a thread from the spring on a similar/the same topic http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/903376

        Anything beef based. A nice piece of beef is OK every so often, but even weekly is over doing it for me.

          I would happily live on bread, butter, and cheese.

              Alternate that cheese with peanut butter and jam every other meal, and I'm good to go.

              penne al vodka
              roast beef/mashed potatoes
              macaroni and cheese
              pulled pork

              They are all so heart-healthy. I should probably be on cholesterol medicine by now.

                Popeye's red beans and rice and a biscuit

                Okay, looking at this I feel like a glutton. I'm not, I just wish i could have these on my regular hit parade.

                        I could eat French onion soup daily as well. I often make a huge pot and eat it over a few days because no one else here likes it.

                          Most foods in this category, I consider not healthy to eat much....but if health was not an issue:

                          Crusty french bread with copious amounts of grassy french butter and maldon salt.....maybe Brie wedges....until the loaf is gone.
                          Hot dogs with ketchup, mustard, mayo, and raw onions
                          Potato salad (good potato salad)
                          Potato chips
                          Mac and cheese

                          It appears I deprive myself of many (rather trashy foods). I think that is why I believe I wouldn't tire of them. In reality, the novelty would wear off and I would probably get sick of them.

                            Beans, cooked greens, lightly boiled vegetables including green beans, brussels sprouts, okra, cauliflower, broccoli, and others.

                              Can or do?

                              I *can* eat lots of things on a daily, weekly or regular bases.

                              I likewise also *do* eat lots of things on a semi-daily, or regular, basis (assuming I'm not traveling).

                              The most immediate things that come to mind that I *do* eat on a (semi) daily basis is broccoli with mustard, cereal and diet coke, sea bass, Werther's hard candies, and eggs.

                                Ipse - is that 'broccoli with mustard, cereal & diet coke" a single dish? Or even 'cereal with diet coke (vs. milk)?..... ;)

                                  I bet the broccoli and mustard (bioavailability issue) mitigates the cereal diet coke damage ;)

                                    No, not a single dish.

                                    I always drink Diet Coke with my cereal, which I eat dry. I don't drink milk or consume dairy products (unless it's ice cream/gelato or yogurt).

                                    Pasta with some kind of tomato-based sauce. Recent favorite includes diced and browned proscuitto; chopped oil-cured black olives, fresh parsley and garlic; lots of pepper. Add tomato sauce made from canned tomatoes that have been cooked with good olive and garlic and then put through a food mill. Toss with spaghetti and serve with romano and pamigiano to be grated at the table.

                                      I've recently taken to the Italian way of finishing the pasta in a small amount of sauce and eating it that way rather than drenching it in sauces and it is head and shoulders above the way I grew up with. It's sublime, and I could eat it every day.

                                      Sichuan food. I do just that once a week at a chile head jour fixe in town, alternating between 2 very good Sichuan restaurants.

                                      Cucumber salad.

                                      Beef noodle soup.

                                      I could go on for a while but I'll stop here.

                                            - hazelnut gelato
                                            - garlic knots with marinara to dip in

                                              Eggs I do eat every day, usually scrambled.
                                              Chicken or turkey, NOT breast
                                              Fish and other sea critters
                                              Pork shoulder butt
                                              Lamb shoulder
                                              Lamb rack
                                              Mashed potatoes
                                              Fried potatoes, cottage, French or hash brown
                                              Cabbage in any form
                                              Pasta in any form
                                              Anything that comes with whipped cream on it …
                                              Braised greens, any kind

                                              I'd also add pho and all sorts of offal, except that being subject to gout means I can have that sort of stuff maybe once a month or so, and in moderation. Damn.

                                                Greek omelette with feta and tomatoes
                                                Stuffed grapeleaves
                                                Goulash soup
                                                Avgolemono soup
                                                Enchiladas suizas
                                                Russian sweet and sour cabbage soup
                                                Roasted chicken with roasted rosemary potatoes
                                                Fried egg sandwich with Frank's Red Hot
                                                Clementines/tangelos (pretty much daily from Nov-Feb)
                                                Caldo verde/other kale and sausage dishes
                                                Toasted bagels

                                                I think I'll keep better track next year, to see which dishes I end up eating every week.

                                                  What I can (and do) eat (almost) every day:
                                                  Fruits: usually berry smoothies or pomegranates
                                                  Nuts: walnuts, almonds or sunflower seeds
                                                  Vegetables: lettuce, peas, green beans, mushrooms or carrots
                                                  Meat: schnitzel (chicken breast) or whole fish (usually bass)
                                                  Pasta: usually penne all'arrabbiata
                                                  Bread: ciabbata, pugliese, focaccia, baguette, NYC style bagels or pita
                                                  Spices: cumin, paprika, cayenne, cinammon, turmeric
                                                  Extras: onions, garlic, ginger (I start out most dishes with these three), garbanzo beans, rice
                                                  Drinks: coffee with almond milk, water, green tea and wine

                                                      Anything with runny egg, which I just recently developed a love for. I also love salad. Good cheese is a big one for me. Grilled cheese and tomato soup I could do daily for the rest of my life.
