Dillon’s G.O.A.T.meal – (Greatest of all-time)
Yo on the real when it’s cold out, there ain’t nothing like a bowl of hot oatmeal. Shit can be kinda boring without hooking it up extra fly – like the way I do it:
Boil the oatmeal with almond milk (no water, chumps!), and cinammon sticks – then garnish with the Trader Joe’s “Anti-Oxidant” trail mix – almonds, cashews, cranberries, dried cherries, etc. – of course add a touch of vegan butter, some fresh strawberries, and a dash of cinammon / sugar right on top! This ain’t no “Little Houseon the Prairie” oatmeal! Bitch!
Dillon’s Funky Flied Lice
This is a dish that I’ve prepared more than any other in my entire life! I worked as a hibachi chef (yes with the jokes and all that) full-time for 4 years during my time at the University of Florida (Go Gators!) – and made this by the freaking ton! Now that I get to make it at home I enjoy it just a tad more.
Ingredients: Jasmine Rice, onion, scallion, carrot, bok choy, green bean, garlic, ginger. Crispy tofu or egg recommended for protein. Steam rice with EVOO and salt. Stir-fry veggies and protein with EVOO/Sesame Oil Blend, add steamed rice and vegan butter to taste. Add soy sauce towards the end of cooking – coat rice evenly ’till it’s golden brown. Prepare to get mega full!
Of course you know I had to dress the rice down with the classic Pan-Asian hot sauce, “Sriracha” – trust the Rooster. Bang Bang city!
Bruncheon with Dillon – The Florida Mimosa
What’s better than waking up in the morning and popping a bottle of cheap bubbly! The soundtrack of my life! I love to use “Cristalino” as it is a syllable longer than “Cristal” and about $100 bucks cheaper. If you cover up the end of the bottle, (the “ino”) – you’re damn near already platinum! Here I’m using fresh Floirda oranges that I picked with my pops and little sis down in Punta Gorda, Floirda. Throw em in the Jack LaLane Power Juicer and its a wrap! Bomb! After I pounded the first few, I got a little ambitious and chopped up Pineapple and Watermelon – I’m drinking that one as we speak. Cheers, Salud, Prost!!
El Rey del Chivo: Chef Joe’s Goat
( Chef Joe not pictured, goat is)
Yep. I did it. It was a while back, and only for 2 mildly ravenous bites, but it was the only red meat I’ve had in a few years now, (minus one other mishap)
‘Twas at Murphy’s (mine Atlanta, Ga. place of employment) where this flick was taken, Ramon is prepping the goat for Chef Joe Schafer’s Super Bowl Party of 2008 – Pretty Gangster right? Joe has an in-ground Bar-B-Q pit in his backyard and cooked it for 8 or so hours – it was spiced Middle-Eastern style, and servedwith an absolutely banging Tabouleh, Cous Cous Salad with mint, lemon and cucumber, Pita/Hummous. Bomb. And my stomach didn’t hurt!
Southern Dillon’s Dinner: Fish Fry w/Green Beans, Potaoes, & Cornbread
Classic southern-style fare: Orange roughy – skillet-fried with EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) in a spicy cornbread crust, haricots verts (french-cut green beans) sauteed in garlic/EVOO, Herb-baked new potatoes, cornbread w/ vegan butter, lemon wedge from Mom & Pop’s tree in Jacksonville, Fl. Mad hot sauce after this photo was taken. (Lousiana or Texas Pete . . .or any other crazy other type – comment your suggestions!)
The Camarone King – Dillon’s Shrimp Tacos
Que rico! Wild-caught sweet shrimp, sauteed with garlic, lime, onion, and cilantro, topped with Dillon’s fresh guacamole (one of the best!), served in grilled corn tortillas, and finished with a fresh salsa verde (tomatillos, garlic, cilantro, cumin, onion).
Chimichurri rice and black beans are served on the side. Delicioso!
Breakfast on the Bayou: Dillon’s Shrimp n Grits
Wild-caught Argentinian sweet red shrimp, organic stone-ground grits infused with cheddar, topped with a sautee of red and green bell peppers, and portabello mushrooms. Shouts to the homie Impulss in the French Quarter!
