TZ DZ has some kind of flimsy flamsy flip flop method of cooking his noodles. He refers to them as two bricks...


edit-flimsy flamsy flip flop....WTF?!?!?

Oh well...

No shite, you gotta get the correct ones though.


Here is the real deal TZDZ Fan noodle special. :twisted:


2 bricks of "Maruchan" hot & spicy picante chicken noodle. (remember the Maruchan ones are best)
Boil the noodles, and once they are done, drain ALL the water out.

Then get about a 1-2 cups of "Tyson" fajita chicken pieces. (these are about $8 a bag, but worth their weight in gold, you gotta believe) :D
Cook these pieces in a microwave, or fry them, whichever.
Cut them up into little pieces.
Then place the noodles and the pieces together in a bowl, then add all the noodle flavoring.
Note- this is particularly spicy, if you like it hot, then you are in heaven here.
Here is where it gets interesting...................

Get a load of freshly ground pepper, and add it in. (I have one of those little pepper mills/grinders) If you don't have one of these, you are not worthy anyway.
Then add several healthy shakes of ground cayenne pepper on top of all this.

You mix all this up (noodles, both types of pepper, the noodle flavoring, and the chicken pieces)

Needless to say its really damn hot, but its got great flavor, and the right amount of heat.

Here you have the TZDZ Fan special hot noodle recipe, complete with chicken pieces.
Sure to bring your blood pressure up a few notches.
Make sure you get a couple of bottles of Deer Park water to wash it down as well.

As much as I like pepper, it's a shock that I don't have one of these yet. I'm gonna have to fix that and give your little recipe a try. Thanks!

Ahhh, so this is the stuff you speak of. Hell we have that around here too, but alot of people here just call it "Rooster Sauce", I assume from the image on the bottle.

BTW- Had 2 bricks this morning, though I had to use the regular "beef noodles". Nowhere near the awesomeness...Image

They were great... I might be overdoing it on the cayenne pepper, but I likes it hot. :) I've been doing only one brick (trying to lose a few pounds), but I've done it a couple of times now. Pretty quick and good and spicy! Still need to get some rooster sauce, tho.

All this talk, has caused me to fix my final 2 bricks, they are cooking as we speak.

I am trying to eliminate as much sodium from my diet as I possibly can, within reason. (I have high blood pressure)
These things are simply sodium-laden.

I'm still not giving up lunch meat though.

OK you lazy bastards. This is a good dish for solo or a date.

Enchilada Cassaroul:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Preheat means start it up as you are making this. ;)

(1) Take a cassaroul dish and 3 to 5 flour tortillas. Shred the tortillas into strips and line the bottom of the dish.

(2) Get your favorite meat: Chicken, Roast, or lean Hamburger Meat (my Choice) and layer on top of the tortillas. About 1 lbs should do, but it's up to you.

(3) Add some green onions, olives, (amount by choice.) The brave and daring can add some japelanos and garlic powder to the dish as well.

(4) Top this off with 1/2 a can of Las Palmas Enchilada Sauce (Hot or Mild). {If you can't get Las Palmas, at least find a real Mexican Enchilada sauce. No Taco Bell or Springfield, guys.}

(5) Now get some colby or cheddar cheese and grate it on top. Quantity is by choice. I like cheese.

(6) Add the remaining tortilla strips on top of this. If you don't have any left, make some more strips.

(7) Empty the last half of the enchilada sauce on top of tortillas and some more cheese. You can also add more onions or olives at this point.

(8 Place this in the oven for about 15 minutes or until you see sauce beginning to boil.

(9) Remove from oven, cut a square out of it. Top it with sour cream, guacamole, hot sauce, etc. I recommend La Victoria Brava sauce but that rooster sauce will work too.

Eat and enjoy.

I don't know how you guys can eat that stuff! But then again, I used to eat all of it and then some myself. No meat for 90+ days now and I'm feeling better than ever.

Pork is just about the worst meat you can possibly eat. If I absolutely HAD to eat meat again, it would probably be strictly chicken and/or turkey and ONLY the white meat.

I'm ripping yet another page out of NYR94's handbook.
Thats just more meat for me to eat, I think I'll go eat a cow.



BTW Ryan......... I don't necessarily think you are going to die from your diet, anyhow.
My money is on one of your ex-girfriends.


Its probably a 3-1 favorite it will be the one that tried to run you over last year. :twisted:

Well, it's a pretty safe bet that I have the healthiest diet out of everyone on the board so yeah, it's not going to kill me. :P

And what do you mean by tried? That bitch DID run me over!

In honor of SVB, I am polishing off 2 bricks tonight.

But there are some changes.
Due to my better diet in the last 8-10 months or so, and my current training, I never have any of the old regular style bricks.
In fact, I never eat this garbage much at all, and haven't for some time.
I cut out all added sodium and sugar a long time back, and about 90% of high sodium items. (I never use salt, nor add sugar to anything, and I only buy the low sodium stuff when possible)
I don't eat any candy, ice cream, cake and the like, and I haven't in ages, perhaps 4-5 years or more.

The very rarely eaten bricks now include the lower sodium noodles.

Image



All the other ingredients (the chicken) are the same.

You take such good care of yourself, TZ DZ! Are you still binge drinking on the weekends??

That is great you use low sodium stuff, we do the same here....

and something else you might pick up is
Image
after one gets use to it, it is not bad as a sugar substitute.....
matter of fact we came upon this in this book...
Image
which has tons of great recipes...protein shakes, everything...delicious stuff!!
Hell, let's turn this thread into:

He gets wasted every weekend, which makes me skeptical about how good of shape he really is in. If you notice, he has never posted a picture in the 3-4 years between here and "That Other Joint" so I wonder if he is hiding something. But then again, what do I know? ;)

That is great you use low sodium stuff, we do the same here....


Ironically, its not something I did overnight.

I just started buying the lower sodium versions of most everything (not everything, just MOST things)several years ago, but only in the last 12-18 months, have I totally went that route.

Shining example - I still have a weakness for Campbells chicken noodle soup. I don't eat it often, but its especially good on a cold day, when you are sick.
But almost ALL of Campbells soups are totally laden with sodium, so I started eating the "HR" version, meaning "healthy request".
Its far less sodium than the regular variety.
They also have an "in between" version which I believe has 25% less than their regular product. You don't see this everywhere, but at alot of stores you sometimes see the chicken noodle kind.
Anyway, the "HR" stuff is being bought up more and more, and my local store is often out.
About 2 months ago, the "best" option they had in stock, was the reduced or 25% less kind, and I gave that a whirl.
I seriously wanted to vomit, I could literally tell that much difference between the "HR" and the 25% less product.

Now when I get something that has tons of sodium, such as a high sodium soup, it tends to make me feel a bit uneasy.

The list is endless with me.
You might remember the thread I started about "whats your latest food obsession", months ago.
I listed something called "compleats" and I posted this picture.

Note that these are also the healthier variety of those type meals.

I also eat the "Healthy Ones" type/brand of lunchmeat. It has far less sodium than the other stuff. I also pick these up at a local store. A web search will bring them up.
I have in the last 6 months started eating more apples, tomatos, romaine lettuce, and alot of ham and chicken breast, tuna salad.
I have also just about cut out ALL cheese, though for the last few years I have been using fat free singles. This too has tons of sodium, and I have pretty much cut that out all together too.
I switched to whole wheat bread many years ago, but now I am using whole grain type bread, which is better still.

Any and all drinks are sugar free, and little to no calories.
I drink bottled Deer Park water,Rip-It sugar free energy drinks, and Diet Ocean Spray Cranberry-grape. (5 calories a serving)
Some of these things have articial sweeteners and such, yes, but I eliminate the majority of that.
I don't drink "Kool-Aid" :cry: , nor do I drink iced-tea, sweetened or unsweetened, so I have no need whatsoever for Splenda, or any sweeteners for that matter.
The protein drinks you mention, are an absolute godsend for people that lift. I used to drink them every day. Now I stay away from them though because most are so sugar heavy.

Yes, I do still go out on the weekends, but not every Friday and Saturday. I have stopped some of that, and when I do go out, I drink the "lesser of evils" if possible.

Am I in good shape?
Certainly........... my cardio lacks a little though, but that I can never conquer completely.
I am an asthmatic, and have been since birth.

I have actually lifted weights since I was about 20, on and off. Various injuries have sidelined me over the years, and its tough for me to go more than 6-8 months without something happening.
I was in a car accident years ago, and I sustained permanent loss in my left shoulder. Its only a few percent, but it does bother me a slight bit sometimes.
When I came back to lifting about a year later, I injured my other shoulder by trying too much too quickly, and that put me out for some time on that too.
I also have had elbow injuries, and various leg problems over the years, and most all of that was due to lifting, and not warming up "properly".


I am now starting to add in a bit more boxing work, but thats mainly because I am tired of any "routine" cardio work, which is fairly boring.

I could probably stand to lose about 10-15 pounds, but I am much bigger than average people my height, from lifting weights over the years anyhow.
I am around 5'8, and about 190 pounds. (maybe 2-3 pounds less now)
In high school, I guess I was about 150, but after beginning to lift a few years after that, I quickly packed on the mass, shooting me up to around 200 pounds.


So I do figure I am in pretty good shape.

In fact, I have been talking to Rorschach alot over the last few months, and he has just started training himself, way over there in the UK. :clap:
Mr.Z has also asked me quite a bit about my training/routines, and lifting, in the chat lately.

I will soon start a thread on weight training for those of us interested.

Hey that is a cool thing to share TZ DZ!
But I still was ROTFL :ROTF: at SVB's posted photo.....funny stuff.....
The Protein shakes that are in that Eating for Life have no sugar in them....I will have to check what the product is, it is some whey protein we get at GNC....mainly a vanilla base and we add bananas and frozen strawberries and it is more like a smoothie, only better for us.

A very nice write up there my man! :clap:
