  2. Food funnies

    Pearls Before Swine, on Thanksgiving.
  3. My sentiments exactly! When it gets that hot here (between 80 and 100F, I stay inside as much as possible.
  4. Cheese graters

    I finally got the opportunity to use my new Salad Shooter when I needed a good amount of grated cheddar for my tuna casserole recipe. I'm so please with the results! So easy to do without straining my hands at all. And, a bonus is that it's super easy to clean....the cone comes out along with the housing and both go into the d/w. Unlike my big food processor parts, these take up only a small corner of the top rack. Next I want to try some chopped and sliced vegs. Maybe today or later this week. I'm glad to have a small appliance that I know I'll use. I also want to grate up some parm with it, that will be a good test.
  5. What Are You Cooking Sous Vide Today? (Part 3)

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!
  6. What Are You Cooking Sous Vide Today? (Part 3)

    Yeah, I ordered it from Harbor Freight and used the 20% off code.
  7. For the last couple days of this trip we had to move to a different apartment (they told us ahead of time). It comes with open plan kitchen and a lovely patio perfect for sipping Campari with lemon twist. Mid day drinking is awful. Bad. Not so bad. OK. Good. Great for you! I love Poetry bulding.
  8. Camping, Princess Style

    I could handle a day or two in a Sunbelt state, 'round about mid-February, but that would be about my limit. Where I live there are few midsummer days that break into the 30s C (say, low-mid 80s F), and I dread them. The idea of voluntarily spending my time getting roasted 24/7 has little appeal.
  9. What's Songxiang souchong?

    I'm sorry, but any website claiming that any green tea leads to weight loss is utterly ignorant. I'll give them extra marks though for the great joke of including Liptons in a list of greatest teas.
  10. better go back and ask for a couple to take home. i would,
  11. Cooking a Heritage Turkey -2017

    Not sure when practice of pulling turkey tendons stopped, but old timer butchers have told me that prior to Big Ag, when animals were still being slaughtered in Hell's Kitchen in NYC, every turkey had their tendon's pulled. The idea of a turkey leg with the plastic-like tendons in the drumstick was unimaginable as they are as unpleasant to navigate as they are inedible. Consequently, unless I can get the bird with the feet still attached (from which I can yank the tendons with pliers) I refuse to cook a whole bird. Invariably, I debone and stuff the legs.
  12. Oh rotuts, I did not keep the happy cow. It was too jugoso by the time I finished eating ;
  13. "" Americans caught on to the Instant Pot well before most Canadians "" "" the company has a "large cache of new products" "" A larger , well made Combi-oven ?
  14. Today

  17. What's Songxiang souchong?

    I would like to read about this brief overview, with an emphasis on interesting facts, as it is done on the websites reviews, for example, like here https://indepthguide.com/best-green-tea/
  18. I do love it. It seems very against my inner core to leave snow and go to someplace hotter than the sun lol.
  19. Maybe "Shelbys". She's the only person that seems to LOVE the stuff
  20. What Are You Cooking Sous Vide Today? (Part 3)

    Have you tried a 'flamethrower?' I still have some birthday money left so I ordered one.
  21. Thanksgiving Side Dishes

    Now that the day is upon us (for those of us in the USA), how many and what sides are you actually serving today? I got to wondering after Sam Sifton from the NYT mentioned that he is making 4 sides for a dinner for 30 - including lobster mac and cheese. We added one extra, but a couple of them are quick/easy to make and we roasted the sweet potatoes and apples last night - along with some other prep work: Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Apples Crispy Brussels Sprouts Hash Roasted Cauliflower w/ Romesco Sauce Mashed Potatoes Copes Corn Of course also turkey, stuffing/dressing, gravy, rolls, cranberry sauce, and desserts. I am feeling good about the plan for today, but I may feel differently in about 8 hours. Nothing is all that difficult to make, but the last half hour or so always seems to be a mad dash. I am sure no one will go hungry, so hopefully I will be able to keep calm and enjoy myself today. I admire those of you who have truly mastered that particular skill. Happy Thanksgiving!
  22. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Kimchi omelette.

  24. The Migrant Kitchen

    An interesting documentary about " collective of culturally connected, distinguished chefs (including Ray Garcia of Broken Spanish, Wes Avila of Guerilla Tacos, Carlos Salgado of Taco Maria, as well as Jorge Gaviria of corn purveyor, Masienda) work to preserve heritage and push forward the “Alta California” Mexican food movement.

  25. I think that on a regular basis. But I've already spent the money on the compressor, airbrush and an assortment of colored cocoa butter so I waited too long to have my epiphany... might as well keep at it now.
  26. Camping, Princess Style

    Crazy? Masochistic?
