This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Tailgate”. I used to go to tailgates all of the time until they got banned in my city for a few reasons. That being said, it has not stopped me from enjoying some delicious tailgating food.
It is really hard to screw up a meatball sub. Make meat balls add stuff. These were no different but I do have to say that they were much better after sitting in the sauce all night and the pictures were a bit better. Wish I took pictures before devouring it again.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Batter”. Typically, I usually stay away from deep fried foods. Not for any health reason, even though that is a good one, but more because I have never been a huge fan of deep fried food. These fish tacos might have changed my mind. Not only was the whole taco delicious, the cod had an amazing flavour.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “California Cuisine”. I grew up in California so when I saw this theme, I got a little nostalgic. Just the other week I was talking about how much I miss California burritos. I mean beans and rice are good and all but some times I want fries in my burrito. This definitely cured my craving for one and I am glad that I have enough to make a few more.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Thai”. I am just going to start to say that Thai food is one of my favourite cuisines, so much so that I constantly try to recreate it. Thus, why I had issue with this theme was trying to come up with something I have never attempted before. Then I remembered this small Thai place near my old work that made killer Pad Kee Mao. This dish also gave me a chance to try out my new wok that I have been meaning to break in.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Presentation”. I definitely dreaded this theme since my plating is kind of crap so I decided to make something simple and tried to make it prettier. Enter these Jalapenos stage right. These can go well as a side dish or if you are like me, just scarf them down for no damn reason.

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Vacation Food”. There is this Italian restaurant near my parent’s house that I visit at least once or twice a year and someone at the table almost always orders this. Does it taste better? Probably but the flavours are very different. Given that, this is really damn good and I plan on making this many many times.

This dish was part of a meal that was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Southern”. I am just going to start that this makes a lot but I am 100% ok with that. I plan to eat this for days because of how good it is. It might look like a pain due to the waiting and simmering time but I barely noticed it.
