    Dinner 2022

    Cool. One of those was among the tools I inherited from my father, and I hadn't (yet) thought of using it on foods.
  2. You'd think the WSJ could afford a copy editor who knows the difference between "cache" and "cachet."
  3. I freeze a whole piece of ginger in a Ziploc, and then microplane it as needed. I tend to use it sporadically - a lot for a short time, then none for a long time - so this makes sense for me. As for garlic, I typically puree most of my garden's harvest with a bit of oil and pack it flat (and thin) in Ziploc bags for the freezer. Once the held-back fresh portion of my harvest is past its prime I switch to the frozen, taking it out and breaking off a corner (or more often, a big ol' chunk) as needed.
  4. I'm sorry, I don't know why it's so small. In the first frame the tea drinker snarls "Coffee is disgusting! I only drink the finest leaves!" In the second frame the coffee drinker scowls and opines that "Tea is just pompous water! Real adults drink coffee." In the third frame, the cocoa drinker - wrapped in a comfy, fuzzy hoodie with blissed-out cartoon eyes - says "Sometimes I add rainbow sprinkles."
  5. In an entirely predictable outcome, the editor-in-chief of SciAm has been targeted online for publishing this piece: https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/eating-too-much-protein-makes-pee-a-problem-pollutant-in-the-u-s/ For those who have access to such things through work or a library, here's the study itself: https://esajournals.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/fee.2531

  7. LOL My friends and family think it's odd for someone who spent so much time in retail electronics, and who writes/researches technology topics on a regular basis, to be such a Luddite when it comes to "smart" products. I always tell them that's exactly *why* I'm such a Luddite!
  8. This is not a food recall as such, but it's at least food-adjacent so I'm going to post it. If anyone here takes magnesium citrate for (ahem) digestive difficulties, be aware that the Equate brand (Walmart), Life brand (Shoppers) and Personelle brand (Jean Coutu) have been recalled for bacterial contamination. https://recalls-rappels.canada.ca/en/alert-recall/magnesium-citrate-oral-solution-microbial-contamination?utm_source=gc-notify&utm_medium=email&utm_content=en&utm_campaign=hc-sc-rsa-22-23&
  9. My mom had the Tupperware equivalent, X2.
  10. It is axiomatic that it's best for one's landlord to know as little as possible.

    Breakfast 2022

    For me it was one of the definitive childhood summer memories. When blueberries were in season, we'd pick them from the sunny bank across from my grandmother's house (a subdivision now, for lo these many decades) and then have them for breakfast with milk and a sprinkle of sugar. That's the taste of summer for me, to this day. I'll still have a bowl of them at least once each summer, and last year served it to my grandkids (to their delight).
