Chili and Chocolate Kangaroo with Roasted Pumpkin and Tomato Salad

Sorry Skippy, if you weren’t so delicious I probably wouldn’t have eaten you for dinner.  I forgot how much I liked kangaroo… I tried something a bit different with it, it needed a bit of brown sugar to put it over the top, so I’ll pop it in the recipe.  Sounds weird, but think of it like that rich sauce in a chili!

Ingredients (salad):

  • Half a butternut pumpkin, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped thyme
  • 3 tomatoes, cut in half
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Shredded cos lettuce
  • Juice of half a lemon

Toss the pumpkin, tomato, oil, thyme, salt and pepper together and roast on high heat for 30 minutes until golden.  Set aside and cool off before putting it on top of the lettuce and finishing with the lemon juice and some of the reserved oil from the roasting tray.

Ingredients (kangaroo):

  • 2 kangaroo steaks
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp chocolate powder
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt

Coat the kangaroo in the spices and let sit for at least 30 minutes.  Grill (inside or out) for about 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on how thick it is.

Hello? Is it Tea You’re Looking For?

If your stomach had thumbs, what would it tweet?

One of the more ennervating Twitter phenomena seems to be the constant need to update what one is eating. I’ve done it plenty of times, but now I check myself when I get the urge. But wait, I went to Shake Shack with @Soniamoghe and had a delicious, gloppy shack stack. Shouldn’t you care?  If you weren’t there, chances are you don’t,  and you don’t want to read about it either. Why then do so many people put this bit of biological info on the Web when certain other private details stay private?  Needless to say, I’m very curious why people are so apt to tweat (Twitter + Eat).

While scanning through Twitter updates I saw that Twitter CEO, Biz Stone, is “waiting for thai take-out on newbury st — who says there’s no tofu in beantown?” @MclellandJohn ordered Chinese food from Empire Corner and he also got into his first choice seminar on Orientalism with Rashid Khalidi. I wonder if the schedule announcement influenced his choice of cuisine.  Elsewhere in New York,  @khoi is at 5 napkin Burge[r], and @SheilaS is “Yummy steak @ Airport Steakhouse in Hutchinson KS.”

It would seem then that Twitter is all about food. One need look no farther than my tweeps’  handles. There’s  @tunabanans, @parislemon, @Sosauce and @asaucyintruder.

It’s about 10PM in New York, but it’s dinner time elsewhere in the great U-S of A.  If I were to do a search of food related words, I’m sure the volume would swell at 9, 12 and 6. (New updates with the word “yummy” pour in in 5-10 per minute)
