    The BK Veggie?

    Thank you, Wilfrid. I thought it was intelligent too, and hope it adds something to the growing body of thought on the subject. Growing here on eGullet, I mean. It's made fascinating reading. So many facets (and according to the article, so many ingredients!) to examine, and dovetailing with Fast Food Nation, a connection already cited here by others. I learned a while ago from vegetarian teeny neighbors that the In-n-Out Burger Secret Menu has an item for them: Grilled cheese, so-called, cheese and all the toppings except meat. I've been thinking since that this goes on at other fast food joints, too, but maybe not. In-n-Out is a particularly nice company. Priscilla

    The BK Veggie?

    Sunday's Opinion section of my local Newspaper of Record included an article about the hapless BK Veggie. In this attempt to 1., be a good eGullet citizen, and, 2., participate in this what I think computerheads call "imbedding a hot link," I also ask forgiveness in advance for posting failure and/or incorrect terminology. So OK. Here's hoping. Priscilla

    Dinner! 2002

    Last evening I served pasta with Bolognese sauce, sauce made hewing pretty closely to Marcella Hazan’s instructions in her first book, and also a very nice salad of BEAUTIFUL greenleaf from an organic grower at the farmer’s market. A few fresh favas with sea salt and olive oil so that my Consort (OK, as Tommy said hilariously elsewhere, now I've offended mySELF) would have something to look at and eat beforehand--a partial appeasement. He doesn't consider pasta a proper meal, all by itself. (Per consort, I think for me it’s going to have to be My Old Man, or something, you know, like the Hippies used to say. Hey, isn’t there an applicable Cockney rhyming slang? I know Trouble and Strife….) Tonight, (at this point in the a.m., anyways) my plan is to sorta riff on Wilfrid’s leftover-lamb thing from the other night and mustard and panko and sauté nice slices of already-roasted still-pink lamb. On more of the greenleaf. If including prep music would not go amiss: Zombies Greatest Hits last evening…you know, it’s good to remind oneself every now and then that Rod Argent WROTE those fantastic songs. Most times it is pleasant and so very easy to just lose oneself in the cloud of Colin Blunstone’s ethereal vocals and the aforementioned R. Argent’s keyboard, oh, let’s call ‘em stylings. Priscilla
  4. I used to rely on Maille for all my Dijon needs. But for a long time now the only Maille available to me (here in California) is dosed with citric acid. A big detriment to flavor, in my opinion. There may well be different formulas shipped to different places, one imagines, if one also is imagining that one is being short-changed whilst the rest of the world fairly drowns in citric-acid-free Maille Dijon mustard. So I peruse mustard labels everywhere, and manage somehow. German markets, I can offer from experience, perhaps to no one's surprise, are good places to shop for mustards. Pizen short on the Dijons, though. Priscilla

    Dinner! 2002

    I am (perhaps inordinately) interested in what folks cook in their own kitchens. I can pretty much WEAR OUT those who cross my purview quizzing them on the subject; not everyone is renewedly galvanized by the Search for Ingredients as I am, it seems, or, has even a superficial interest in those beatifying moments when raw materials and inspiration converge serendipitously. Would it be of interest to anyone else to have an eGullet topic here in Cooking about what we cooked for dinner? I am edified by the restaurant discourse, and of course home cooking finds its way into many posts already, I know I know I know, but what I am imagining would be a quotidian communal journal-type chronicle documenting what eGulletaires COOKED, for DINNER. Fancy, homely, good, not-so-good, hardcore full-on from scratch, or delicately supported by convenience foods. And then of course whether the sponge gets run through the dishwasher after cleanup, or not. What do you all think? And, what did you cook for dinner? Priscilla Management Note: The Dinner! topic proved over time to be one of our most popular topics, eventually reaching nearly a thousand pages and almost three million views before it had to be split up because the database could no longer handle it. It is now broken up by year: Dinner! 2002 (This topic) Dinner! 2003 Dinner! 2004 Dinner! 2005 Dinner! 2006 Dinner! 2007 Dinner! 2008 Dinner! 2009 Dinner! 2010 Dinner! 2011 Dinner! 2012
