    Lunch 2020

    First food and my first real Mexican tacos (!) after 3 flights and 16 hours in the air, without sleep over 24 hours. Roadside taco truck in Guerrero Negro (Baja Sur), sells only 2 things, prawn and fish tacos. I got 8. Why did I even consider NZ or Australia? Did my research on both and was underwhelmed (I know just about everyone "loves" them). Turns out Mexico has more than food to offer me. It has my most favourite and epic animal and that's why I have come here and not NZ (original plan) or Australia (plan B). White bits are cabbage, not cheese.
  3. STOP - here it is Instant Pot Cabbage Soup Ingredients: 1 can of tomato sauce (14.5 oz can) 1 can of diced tomatoes 1 can of water (use the sauce can to get the sauce that sticks to sides) 1 small to medium cabbage, de-cored and cut into 8 wedges then cut the wedges in half and separate 1 medium yellow onion cut into 1” wedges and separated 1 pound of carrots, peeled and cut into ½” slices (or more if you like carrots) 2 tsp salt ½ tsp pepper 1 tsp garlic powder 6 tbs sugar – to taste 2 lbs of stew meat 1” chunks (chuck is the best, but almost any cut will work) Method: Combine all of the ingredients except the carrots in the IP, cabbage goes in last. Stir it up a bit. Cook on High Pressure for 10 minutes, then quick release. Stir in the carrots and cook for another 6 minutes on high pressure with a 15 minute (to full) natural release. Serve! Notes: I use an 8 qt IP, for a 6 qt you may want to pre-wilt the cabbage by microwaving it for a few minutes so that you can fit it all in. As I am thinking about it, you could also try adding as much cabbage as you can, then add the rest with the carrots. There is no need to pre-brown the meat.
  4. that is so weird. Both links take me to the soup recipe. The answer to this puzzle is way beyond my pay grade. (Maybe it doesn’t translate to Canadianese?). 😁
  5. Lamb shanks. Don’t know what is going wrong but the post is on the previous page to this one.
  6. So Hazel's reply: I'm a bit nonplussed. What does he mean by a food archive? If it were some special collection of documents in their library system, I would suggest he search https://library.harvard.edu. Otherwise, I would see where the leads he already has take him.
  7. Amazing trip, thanks so much @Kerry Beal
  8. Yesterday
  9. If it will ever quit raining, I am ready to get my yard guy to come down and put in my raised beds for my garden. I'm planning on three, maybe four, beds, about 6 x 12 feet. One will be a tomato bed, possibly with a couple of pepper plants at one end. One will be an asparagus bed, something I have always wanted. One will hold a couple of hills of yellow crookneck squash, a couple of hills of zucchini, a couple of hills of cucumbers, which will be a gracious plenty to provide for summer eating and some preserving. If there is a fourth, it will be for me to plant some spring peas and some Kentucky Wonder green beans, since I can find the dang things no where else. I will be planting herbs in the flower bed just off the back porch, for ease of quick harvest when I'm cooking. As that is on the north side of the house, I'm hoping the cilantro and parsley will last a bit longer; it used to suffer badly in the sun on the west side of my former house. I have nearly missed the window to plant trees, but I want a pear tree and a fig tree. May have to call a nursery tomorrow and see if we can get those in before spring gets here.
  10. So it sounds like they're getting out of Manhattan... https://1010wins.radio.com/articles/fairway-market-files-for-chapter-11-bankruptcy-70m-deal?fbclid=IwAR0oSq6unA3Ee49Xb5UTPc0a1LYL8R1L6vgkcbhr2KLxtUzYBR-IgAW78wk
  11. Last night I was in one of Nobu’s outposts. It was energetic/loud but I could still converse. 78 decibels. Today I flew in an Airbus 321...78 decibels too. Nobu seemed a lot louder.
  12. Well, this is truly weird. I tap on your quote and I get an error message saying that the page does not exist. Anyway, thanks for quoting it in full. I appreciate it.

    DARTO pans

    I do not have a large enough Darto in which to fry okra. But I just can't comprehend it'd beat the 12-inch Lodge.
  14. I really enjoyed that story. I can related to being taken for granted because you're a "hillbilly" or "country bumpkin." But I would dearly love to visit this chef's restaurants. He just went on my bucket list.
  15. For me it goes to a post made by @mgaretz in the IPot thread with his recipe for Cabbage Soup. How is that possible? i think the recipe is actually on the same page as the the one you show...before or after if I remember.

Pork rillettes, cornichons, baguette slices, homecured olives; sparkling wine Cauliflower (and bacon) soup served with crispy panko crumbed fried oyster on top, drizzle of curry oil Thick cut red snapper, seared, finished in oven, caper salsa, camargue rice, grilled radicchio with balsamic dribble Papillon blue and La Tur cheeses, prune and walnut pate Chocolate sherbet with crushed dried oranges and soft whipped cream DH’s famous fresh mint tea Navarro Gewertztraminer, planned to pair only with the soup, was requested throughout A good time with good friends.

    DARTO pans

    I've used Dartos to make cornbread. It works fine, but the shape is different than you get from classic cast iron skillets... flared edges along the bottom and side rather than a hard corner. The only thing I use my cast iron for anymore is nachos (in a 12" Lodge) but now that I think of it, my No 34 paella would probably work even better.
