  1. Cooking for 100+...ideas anyone?

    I haven't signed into Eg in such a long time. I saw my name mentioned here so I thought I'd comment again. The seniors I cooked for ( seems like ages ago, it was actually from 2006-2009) were from a very small town in Southwestern Ontario. I was told " if they can't pronounce it, they won't eat it". They were very meat and potatoes people. Not even "baked" potatoes. They wanted them mashed every single time. My budget was pretty small too, IIRC, I think it was 3.00 a person and that consisted of juice( always tomato), salad, main dish, starch, veggie, roll and dessert).
  2. Yep, still here : ). Still madly in love : ) Thanks. That was a great salad. I remember Steve Shaw was amazed that I used swordfish.
  3. I've been off Eg for a little while, wish I would have known. I would have attended. Would have loved to see my old Heartland Friends!!
  4. Hi there you! I hope that things are well. Just for the record, I have massively enjoyed following you and your girl's adventures. You're both pretty cute and clearly happy. Good on you both. 

     

    I need some help. Thanks to all of the stuff that we did, a long time ago, and Chris's rather heavy hand at deleting stuff when we made the change, I can't pull things up that I would really like to see. Specifically, in this case, I need both versions of my Chicken Drop Story. It got posted on Thanksgiving, 2003, but every way I try doesn't work. Could you ask Hennes or someone to pull it up and email it to me. I really need it. (bhamaker@gmail.com). I would truly appreciate it. 

     

    I am going to be out there in your world in July. Would love to take the both of you out to dinner if you have any interest. I have wanted to meet you for the longest, and this looks like it would be a good opportunity. 

     

    Please let me know if you can help (via email, please). I would really be happy if you can. 

     

    Best to you both,

  5. I just made some tortilla soup from Cook's illustrated. It was awesome and very easy for a Cook's recipe. You do have to make your own tortilla strips in the oven, although I suppose you could get away with using ready made chips.
  6. Wow, that is pretty harsh. Care to elaborate? There is an awful lot of "bad" pizza out there, but I seriously doubt anything Kenji produced could be damaging.
  7. I got my signed copy on Wednesday when Kenji was at our local community college's culinary department for a "how to build a better thanksgiving demo". I can't wait to start cooking from it. I was not able to stay for the demo, but I saw some pics and heard from people who attended that it was amazing.
  8. We are going on celebrity to Alaska in a month. We cruise Aqua class. I like the food in Blu. It's lighter. Less heavy sauces..
  9. I remember the first time I saw when I lived in Canada. I had the same reaction everyone does, but it really makes so much more sense than the huge gallon jugs. We had a little milk pitcher and a little doo dad for cutting off a small piece of the corner of the bag. The milk just flowed out in a steady stream.

    Today would have been Steve's birthday. Happy Heavenly Birthday Steve. We miss you and your fish pants.
  11. Trader Joe's Products (2012–2015)

    Was it the "health mix". I buy that and throw it in salads and tuna fish.
  12. CanadianBakin' is leaving us

    I was told today that Tina has passed away.
  13. Puerto Vallarta Rec.s

    We're going on Saturday, I wonder how many of the above restaurants are still around.
  14. Falling Back on Island Time

    Happy Thanksgiving!! Did you two just not feel like making turkey?
  15. For 3.00, yes, for 6.00. No.
