Joe really was in a creative and mood to cook yesterday! It could also be because Joe is a have not this week. Hunger, in the Big Brother house when your a have not, can get pretty intense, and uncomfortable. Slop was created by the producers as a food substitute and is not supposed to be a breeze for the house-guests. America’s choice for the have-nots’ this week is Cod and Candy Canes. As we talked about, the house guests got all sorts of flavors of candy canes but only one choice in fish, and that is Cod.
The BB kitchen is overrun with ants, and with Cooking!!!
Cod isn’t one of my personal favorite fishes, but if I was that hungry or needed nutrition I’d use every creative bone in my body to get the job done! A few things I’ve thought of making would be Cod Nuggets/fish-sticks, fish soup which could be milk based almost like a chowder, pan seared fish encrusted with slop and maybe even cod roll ups!!!
Homemade Cod Fillets w/ Salsa Sauce
Ingredients – 1 Step Salsa
Note: Joe said the reason he could use the following ingredients is because they were “IN” the canned salsa that is on the approved Have not condiment list. This was questioned, and BB told them they could in future only use the actual ingredient provided by BB and not re-create it with fresh ingredients. (drats foiled again!)
- Cherry Tomato
- Red Onion
- Whole Lime
- Hot Sauce
- Salt & Pepper
- Garlic Cloves
- Avocado (Big Brother made him remove this before they ate it!)
Add all ingredients to blender, pulse slowly until blended to your desired consistency (about 8-10 pulses), set aside.
