    Cooking plain old chips

    Actually, when you hold the map properly you are all lower down than Australia. We just let everyone else think they know how the maps work, we know absolutely where the center of the universe is. I think the actual dead center a big X on the ground just down the road from me, but because we are right we just don't rub it in to everyone else.😂 Its an aussie thing to just let it slide, for us its just not worth upsetting people by shattering their illusions.

    Yet another batch of Blasphemy Ribs. Served with steamed spinach in butter.

    Cooking plain old chips

    OK, look at your map. The USA is both east of Canada and west of Canada. No small potatoes.

    Cooking plain old chips

    I think you are holding your map the wrong way. Canada is north of the USA unless you are Alaskan. And I will quibble! Of course, it could be argued that ALL potatoes are American.

    Cooking plain old chips

    Ahem. Yukon Gold are from that country a bit east of America on the map, specifically the area commonly known as Ontario. And no quibbling North America is America.
  7. This isn't really disposal related... but I just wanted to encourage people to get frying.

    Cooking plain old chips

    @gfweb I want to apologise. It wasn't my intention to suggest that you had claimed to have the best or only way to make chips. As you say, you just said how you do them and I'm sure they are great. I only meant to suggest, not specifically to you, that while all the information given is interesting, it doesn't necessarily answer the OP's question and that describing the attributes of the potatoes might be more directly useful to the OP. I realise I expressed that clumsily and I see how it could be seen as negatively commenting on your methods. That was never intentional. I'm sorry.

    Ingredients via Internet

    I started this thread about sourcing Vacche Rosse from parmashop.it. Oddly tonight amazon was recommending Vacche Rosse for me. Turns out Parmashop now has an amazon storefront for the convenience of those interested in such delicacies.
  11. Though I will put in a plug for Eat Your Books. Not all recipes have made it to the internet.

    Crazy Good e-Book Bargains

    I clicked on the Phillips book. Though I have never had Dim Sum. The one time when my family and I went for Dim Sum we all ordered other stuff.
  13. An acquaintance, yes, She contacted me when she was researching her book on regional Chinese cuisine, "All Under Heaven" with a few questions about food specific to my part of China. Later, she was kind enough to include me (under my real name) in her list of acknowledgements, alongside the good and great! Company I seldom keep! She is an eGullet member @C J Phillips , but hasn't posted for a long time.

    Thanks for the info - I think I'm going to get one of those - FYI the link in your signature does not go to your website - I had to manually input it - what a drag - to find your real website and your selection looks delicious.
  15. I believe the author is a friend or an acquaintance of @liuzhou. I seem to recall him recommending this book when it was first released. I am certain he will correct me if I am wrong.
  16. I am happy to wait. Thank you.

    Meeting-friendly snacks to bake

    I have my grandmother's recipe. If I can find it without unpacking the boxes I've already packed for the move, I'll post it. Otherwise, it may be a week or so before I can get to it. May not be any different or any better than what you're using but you'll be able to tell how it compares to the recipe you used. I don't remember having trouble with them staying together but it's been a while since I made them.

    Excellent choice.😍

    Food Safety Question

    OK. I'm cowardly. Since I didn't cook it tonight....I'm tossing it.
  20. Those look gorgeous to me. Have you ever tried Argan oil as a dresseing/finishing oil? It has a distinctive flavor that complements so many foods. I add it to pilaf, plain rice, couscous, mushrooms, roasted eggplant/tomatoes/fingerling potatoes.

    Dinner tonight was pork chops with a sauce made with red wine vinegar and cream. Charlie contributed the mac N cheese.

    Dinner 2019

    @Owtahear lovely cook on the leg. It was quite thick so to get it mostly pink was great. You must have cooked it indirectly for part of the time. Well done...you, not the meat 😁 I butterflied mine and cut the really thick part off to cook on another day seeing we had plenty of meat. My meat was about 1.5 inches thick so I cooked it over full gas and kept flipping it until the temp was 120ish then rested it for ten minutes tented under foil.
  24. Don’t get me wrong: I am with you that the industry adds certain stabilisers to processed frying oils. I am interested in the underlying mechanisms (which for some at least are clear to me). The same for the improved frying properties of (reasonably) aged frying oil.

    Please let us know how this turned out.
  26. Happy to bring back some good memories. These were coated with a mixture of walnuts and almonds. I am not happy with the dough for these and will be looking around for a better recipe. This one is a beast in terms of keeping it together and shaping the cookies to have an indentation.

    Ice Cream!

    That's my favorite, too! Give me peaches, or nectarines, and the fixings for ice cream and I'm a happy woman.

    Dinner 2019

    Dinner last night was south Asian. Paneer cooked with tomato and onion, cabbage mallung, dal, rice and raita. Mallung is a Sri Lankan dish, served at nearly every meal. You can use basically any leafy green vegetable, the one below is cabbage and carrot tops. It’s so easy and very good for you with no oil. Chop an onion finely, throw in pan with washed and finely shredded leaves, a chopped green chilli or two, a spoon of ground Maldive fish flakes, salt, pepper and lemon juice then simmer with a lid on until the leaves are tender. Add desiccated coconut to absorb any remaining moisture.
