  1. Siracha seems to have disappeared. The others are available locally. Haven't tried that one however a Jamaican brand readily available here is Grace's of which I like the Scotch Bonnet Sauce.
  2. Agree about Frank's. I'll be on the lookout for El Yucateco. Just curious. Is the opposum a Jed Clampett quote?
  3. I ran out of my favorite day to day sauce last week, Valentina's, and found it out of stock in the area. This is my current pantry stock of unopened sauces (all Canadian) and all too hot for day to day use: And these are currently in use (again all Canadian): The Damien's sauces are very good (especially the LZ with fish. I also have these jellies. The PC hasn't been tried yet. The Mango Reaper jam is really good when used in moderation (especially with Brie or Liverwurst). I've used many others such as Frank's, Tabasco (and many clones), Siracha type sauces......etc, etc. My question to dedicated and casual users is what do you use and why. I'm certain I can pick up some tips here.
  4. Dinner yesterday evening with friends. Mussels in a white wine, garlic and herb sauce with store bought baguette. Followed by bolete pilaf and salmon (butter, seasoning and dill). There was a salad (no photo) and all followed with a blueberry grunt (also sans photo). Enjoyed with a pinot grigio. The standout of the evening was the rice. Done in the standard pilaf method but using rehydrated boletes and the soaking liquid it was flavourful and very aromatic. A keeper.
  5. Breakfast wrap with pepper jack, arugula, eggs with chorizo and cilantro. This needed some added habanero sauce as the chorizo was not spicy or exhibit any real heat (I live in the land of the bland). Wild blueberries and coffee on the side.
  6. Very much annoyed over this. If a shot is taken, bow or otherwise, it's a hunter's responsibility to follow, find and finish.
  7. Yesterday's dinner: pork chop, colcannon, tomatoes, braised chard, homemade saurkraut and full sour green tomato pickles. Glass of Cotes du Rhone.
  8. I've really enjoyed following your Scottish trip. Lots of fodder for planning a future trip. Cheers.
  9. For sure. I was just listing my preferred bitter greens. I will also be growing chard, beet greens and radish greens.
  10. I'm with you on that. Kale, collards, escarole, arugula, radicchio and dandelion greens when they're properly prepared. Grocery stores in my area don't carry half of the greens mentioned however I will be making up the difference in the garden (or foraged in the case of dandelion).
  11. A little Thanksgiving humour for our southern neighbors.
  12. @chromedome Good one. When I moved to Cape Breton last summer I drove. 22 hours driving time over 3 days. Doesn't look like much on the Canadian map.
  13. Cold, damp and snowy breakfast. Herbed eggs (dill, parsley, chives and thai chilis) over potatoes and sausage (cut large for dipping) with tomato and clementine.
  14. Nice to see you back. Were all of the spots you camped so crowded? I'm curious since campsites in campgrounds in Canada are much more spacious and in most cases have treed areas separating them allowing for some privacy. I am referring to national, provincial and territorial parks and not privately owned campsites.
