The Internet Kitchen: Steamboat!

by Nick

One of the hidden benefits of living in Colorado is that you meet people and then those people move to really awesome places.

Then you can go visit them!

Betsy and I have two really good friends that recently moved to Steamboat Springs, also known as the most stereotypical ski town in the entire world.  This weekend they are having this strange thing called Winter Carnival.  As far as I can tell it involves people skiing through rings of fire and lots of horses and cowboys.

You’d be crazy to miss it!  Of course, it helps to have a couch to surf on for such events.  I don’t even want to know what a hotel room in Steamboat runs in the dead of winter.

The Poll

Instead of posting a real poll this week, I’ll just open it up.  If there’s a dish that you want me to try or some sort of cuisine, just leave a comment!  I’ll pick something from the comments and cook that.

If you don’t have a specific dish in mind, you can also request a kind of dish… something Mexican… something vegetarian… etc.

The Links

America’s Best New Sandwiches - A quick list of some of the awesome sandwiches hitting the streets this year.  I think I will be swinging by the Ink Sack for sure the next time I’m in LA… (@ Endless Simmer)

Braised Short Rib Sandwiches - Some might say that this is a lot of work for a simple sandwich, but I’ll take any chance I can get to braise some short ribs! (@ Pinch My Salt)

Nettle Pasta - Only had nettles once or twice and haven’t found them in Colorado at all, but in general I love green pastas so this caught my eye.  (@ Hunter Angler)

Crab and Brie Omelet - I’m always looking for a good omelet recipe and I very rarely consider seafood for an omelet.  This looks just delicious though. (@ Sugar Laws)

Vegetarian Chili - This recipe is good, but what I’m more impressed by is the photographs.  Chili is almost impossible to photograph and make it look as good as it actually is.  Not a problem for Todd and Diane. (@ White on Rice Couple)
