Apocalypse Cooking w/ Sad Man’s Tongue: #1 Frittata

Feel like your in an Apocalypse? Waiting for Rick to come save the day? Stuck at home waiting for normalcy while the streets seem empty. Well for all of you who have a mixed bag of ingredients in the fridge and cupboards, here are some recipes to get you by until your delivery finaly arrives, or you realize you bought too much toilet paper and not enough food.

The first time I heard the word Frittata I was working in a luxury hotel and the chef was making them for our breakfast buffet as part of an action station. He was serving egg white frittatas, which is a fancy way of saying, “would you like some boring flavorless eggs with your boring flavorless life, but you can still fill special and important because of the fancy name.”

The chef wasn’t even making frittatas, he was actually making egg white omelets. Kind of like that fine Corinthian leather Ricardo Montalban spoke about, but does not actually exist.

So what exactly is a Frittata then, other than a way to clean out the fridge, use food in your fridge that will spoil soon, or pair up the 1 sausage link, with the one slice of bacon and the small chunk of ham into one edible dish. It is exactly that! Just like soups, it is the perfect way to use leftovers, ingredients that are in small supply, or quite simply, the food that will rot in a couple of days if you don’t use it. Why do you think everyone’s chicken soup is different?

The fundamental difference between an omelet and a frittata is air. Eggs for a frittata are beaten with the addition of milk to incorporate more air into the egg so they rise when placed in the oven, while an omelet is slowly stirred,  that is the basic difference in a nutshell.

So after a week of cooking I certainly have a few things in the fridge that I cannot use as the main ingredient anymore cause there’s just not enough, and I have some items that if I don’t use by tomorrow I am going to have to throw away.

Ingredients:

  • This is only what I had, and had less to do about measurements than what I had available. Use whatever you want, any amount you have, and all you need to worry about is your base of egg and milk. The rest will take care of itself. But here’s what I used anyway;
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 Cup of Milk
  • 1 Breakfast Sausage Link (I Don’t know how I ended up with only one)
  • 1 Small end cut of ham, looks like a 2×3 pyramid, not enough for a sandwich so in it goes.
  • 1 SLice of english Bacon. I don’t even remember what I used the rest of the bacon for or why I could not use this lonely piece when I used the other bacon, but in it goes now.
  • 4 inch piece of Leek that I only used the top part of for  a recipe the other day, and now its starting to look a bit dull.
  • 6 Leftover Button mushrooms that I could have just put in last nights sauce but did not. In you go.
  • 1 Slice of Edam cheese that has been wrapped for days
  • 3 slices of Emmenthal cheese because I ate the other three slices earlier in the week.
  • 1/4 cup of Ricotta cheese that I had in its original container.
  • 1 cup of baby spinach
  • 2 Tbl of Butter
  • 1 Tbl Minced garlic, need to buy more tomorrow.
  • 1 -2 Tbl Minced basil, getting a bit dark, but still aromatic.

I got rid of 6 containers in the fridge with items that were clearly not using the capacity of their container anymore. Perfect!

Now lets put these leftovers and lonely orphans into something special. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Farenheit or 177 degrees celsius.  Place your butter into the pan and melt on medium high heat. Then add your diced red onion and leeks sliced into mini rings.

Next take your diced ham, sliced sausage link, and that lonely slice of diced bacon  and add it to the pan along with your  mushrooms, basil and garlic. Stir to incorporate. Just cook for 2-3 minutes and then add the ingredients to a baking pan 2-3 inches deep. Then pour your beaten eggs and milk to the pan. I used an electric mixer to really beat the eggs and incorporate air into them.

Then add your chopped spinach and push down lightly so that the egg mix slightly covers them but not all the way. Then add your sliced cheese and ricotta on top of that. I also slightly pushed down on the sliced cheese. Place in oven and let cook for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for a few minutes and then serve. Not quite Quiche and not quite an omelete, this light and tasty dish with leftovers from the fridge can only be one thing….a Frittata.

Tomorrow we will discuss how to eat sunny side up eggs without bread. I hope at least we could entertain you 🙂 🙂 Be safe

This Little Bee Is The Only One We’re Interested In

Pin Up Girl Little Bee Prague, Rockabilly, Sad mans Tongue PraguePhotography by Elys the Dog – Photography

In the bee hive of hotties and amazing photography of Elys the Dog – Photography there is only one bee we are interested in. Pin Up Girl Little Bee stung are heart and it’s one stinger we are not taking out.

This photographer has a wide range of conceptual photography that encompasses Pin Up, Travel, Outdoor, Couples, Inked, and of course Dogs just to name a few. The photographers out-door shots have great use of natural lighting and colors while his depth of field keeps you focused on the target. The travel shots have you seeing familiar places in a different light, and the Pin Up Shots and Ink shots are just obviously special to the individual and for those lucky enough to see them.

One of  this photographers models is Pin Up Girl Little Bee, OUCH!!!! I get stung just thinking about her. Little Bee is quite versatile and could easily do inked shots for Suicide Girls, could capture the retro feel as a model for any of the vintage clothing stores in town, such as Red Lips Pin Up Design, could be the cover girl for Retro Lovely Magazine as a Pin Up, and can create a timeless emotion with her out-door shots. Of course those legs are killer as well.

So if you are going to get stung by a bee, I can think of no better stinger than Pin Up Girl Little Bee, who we have had the pleasure of meeting at the Vintage Ladies Night at Sad Man’s Tongue Bar & Bistro. We always say that a women’s true beauty is equal to her personality and this girl has a wonderful down to earth personality that keeps you engaged. Which means she’s a real hottie!!!

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sound of the Milwaukee Wildmen out of London, England

Gil Elvgren’s Redheads – Via Retrorambling

11390_ge6I suppose I love red heads like the next person. Found this post over at Retrorambling and what a great blog they have. Check them out and check out the Red Heads of Gil Elvgren.

Elvgren was a commercial success. he lived in various locations, and was active from the 1930s to 1970s. His clients ranged from Brown and Bigelow and Coca-Cola to General Electric and Sealy Mattress Company. In addition, during the 1940s and 1950s he illustrated stories for a host of magazines, such as The Saturday Evening Post and Good Housekeeping.

What ever else can be said of the man, he loved redheads in all shades and forms. And from my point of view there’s no shame in that – Ted

Tacco Photography Is Kustom Kulture

Kustom Kulture Photography, by Sad Man's Tongue Rockabilly Bar & Bistro Prague

by Sad Man’s Tongue, Photos by Alex Tacco of TACCO Photography

I was recently at a classic American Car Museum outside of Prague, it had many types of classic cars as well as unu elektroroller scooters. Being a somewhat accomplished photographer, although mainly street, I thought I could get some great shots. After all I have done countless posts here and articles on great Kustom Kulture photographers such as BiERLOS, Dirk Behlau, and Mark Stacks. So with Nikon in hand and a 1.8 fixed focal point I shot away like the professionals I have admired for so long.

In the end it does not change. When I shoot a photo of a car  in an attempt to capture the details, all I get is a car. The above photographers make magic happen. The car disappears and the details emerge.

Well to add to the list of Kustom Kulture photographers who are far superior to me is a young man from Lille, France, Alex Tacco of TACCO Photography.

This 28 year old lover of Automotive, Lifestyle, Pin-Ups, and Kustom Kulture photography really produces some magic, and I think you will agree that his photos really bring out the details.

Enjoy today’s gallery to the sounds of Sarah Shook & the Disarmers out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina with their song Keep The Home Fires Burnin’.

Thomas’s Barber Shop: Old School Never Felt So Good

Thomas's Barbershop Sad Man's Tongue Rockabilly Bar and Bistro Prague (16)

We have all seen the pictures, and we have all seen the movies……straight razors, hot towels, and what seemed to be an exceptional experience with getting a guy’s haircut.

Of course to a lot of us this was a legend, a myth, or a tall tale told by our grandfathers and great grandfathers. But then again there were those pictures that seemed to back the tales up.

For years I suffered haircuts at a salon who just did not know what a true men’s cut was. Sorry to all your beauty salons but a men’s cut requires hair to be trimmed not just from the top of ones head, so you actually need to grow it, luckily there are several ways for men to regrow hair naturally so they can have the hair for a real haircut. I am sure all you guys know what I mean.

Thomas's Barbershop Sad Man's Tongue Rockabilly Bar and Bistro Prague (14)

Enter Thomas’s Barber Shop, the first original barber shop to open in Prague. When I heard about them from a friend I was quite excited as we had done some articles on an Old School barber shop in Holland, Schorem Haarsnijder En Barbier. I dreamed of the day that something similar would open here, especially since Thomas’s has the exact same kind of barber chairs, the ones I found at Salonca.com/salon.html.

They have many options ranging in price for your pleasure from a simple proper cut to the Ultimate experience which I did partake in and includes the following;

Men’s haircut with shampoo, defining beard lines, contouring, drying and styling, HOT TOWEL WET SHAVE, taning the hair on  ears, SOTHYS facial peeling, facial massage, ANTI-AGE mask and serum, paraffin, scalp massage, shoulders massage, massage of hands and arms, final styling, glass of whisky.

It was the best money I ever spent on a hair cut in my entire life, as well as one of the best experiences at a barbers or any previous hair salon I had visited.

They gone to say on their website;

Our shop is not a ‘modern day’ hair salon, at our establishment you step back to the golden age of barber shops. Hot-towel prepping, straight-razor closeness and all with bringing back tradition of when a visit to the barber shop was more than just a haircut. We strive to make you feel and look great in an environment where you can relax, socialize and enjoy a real man’s grooming.

 In this electronic age we want to offer you the experience of traditional grooming techniques, making a haircut and shave not just a necessity, but a pleasure. Only in our shop you can indulge in classic shaving with straight-razor and hot towel steaming, keeping an old-fashioned tradition alive.

Salon in Prague 1 Navrátilova 16 was the first to open and nowadays is a cult address associated with perfect men care.

If you want to be properly pampered and treated then there is no other choice. The ultimate experience can take 70 to 90 minutes, but you walk out feeling like a million bucks.With three locations they make it pretty easy for you to find your way there.

I myself have not had a haircut in over a year and my facial hair is fully grown in. Lets just say I have now set the stage for their barbers to sculpt away and create something special, if they are up for the challenge. I’ll be making an appointment soon.

Enjoy today’s musical selection of St. Johnny And the Sinners based out of Prague, Czech Republic with their rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”

The Legendary Pernštejn Pardubicky Porter: Unique to the Czech Republic At Sad man’s Tongue Bar & Bistro Prague

pernstejn pardubicky porter at Sad Man's Tongue Rockabilly Bar and Bistro Prague by Leopard Print Photography (9)

We love Old School things over here at Sad Man’s Tongue just as much as we love legs and a great tattoo. While a person’s tattoos are as unique to the individual, so is Pernstejn’s Pardubicky Porter unique unto the Czech republic.

We proudly serve this beautiful Porter here at Sad Man’s Tongue, one of only a select few locations that do so in Prague. The legendary Porter beer has been produced in the Pardubice Brewery since 1891 according to its original recipe.

Pardubice Brewery has been brewing beers since 1871 in the town of Pardubice. The town itself has a brewing tradition which dates back to the middle ages, now that is Old School.

So come in and taste this Porter that has…..

characteristic dark, almost black, thick foam and distinguished by a very delicate, sweet malt taste. Beer connoisseurs will appreciate chocolate and caramel tones with a subtle touch of cherry.

During our happy hour from 3pm until 6pm you can get a .4 l draft for only 35kc. And at 19 degrees, that sounds like a pretty happy “Happy Hour.”

The Pin Up Photography of Bostjan Tacol Is Coming To Sad Man’s Tongue Bar & Grill – Prague

pin-up-girls-bybostjan-tacol-2

by Sad Man’s Tongue Photos by Bostjan Tacol of Photobilly

When it comes to Bostjan Tacol, from Ljubljana, Slovenia we are always taking a peak at his web page hoping to get a glimpse of something new. Like a child at Christmas we can’t wait to peak under the tree.

While we know we will always find great photography with bright colors that catch our eye, and some of the hottest pin up girls that lure us in hook, line, and sinker, every new shot is a gift from this talented man.

We have featured Bostjan here many times in the past, so it was only natural to ask him if he could give us a few selected prints. He came through like a champ and sent us five beautiful prints that we will be hanging on our walls.

If you want to see the selection he sent then you have to come and visit us, but here is a selection of his incredible work. Enjoy the gallery to the sounds of The Hells Fire Sinners out of Columbus, Ohio with their song “The Last Song Of 59.”

The Art of Mike Bell at Sad man's Tongue Bar & Bistro Prague, Rockabilly (8)

When I first saw Artist Mike Bell’s painting of Frankenstein and His Bride, I always imagined that if we ever moved from a virtual bar and bistro to the real deal, we would make a place for his incredible work.

The Art of Mike Bell at Sad man's Tongue Bar & Bistro Prague, Rockabilly (1)

Well Sad Man’s Tongue Bar & Bistro is opening it’s doors soon and Mike Bell is sending us both prints three and half feet tall to grace our place, as we look towards a late August opening.

Artist Mike Bell has an incredible variety of art that takes nostalgic figures and throws in a bit of humanity and humor, which makes you fell like these old school monsters would be cool to party with.

We expect the canvas prints to arrive in a couple of weeks and you should be able to view them on opening day in several weeks time. Until them enjoy the work of Mike Bell below to D.A. Sebasstian And The Inner Demons from Seattle, Washington with thier song Monster, Monster.
