  1. This. I'm ready to start researching electric/battery can openers and pepper grinders. What's really bothering me is how hard it is to use my knives and to grate cheese. I bought one of those chopper things, but hate digging it out. I can foresee lots of changes to get used to. I can remember being really snotty and arrogant about gadgets (not quite as bad as that twit Alton Brown), but now that I am older and have hand issues, I am much more understanding about many of them.
  2. I cook bacon in the oven on baking sheets covered with the large heavy duty foil. No mess, no trouble. I never cook less that the entire package. It will get eaten in a week.
  3. What about those things that you ordered, @Shelby?

    Dinner 2020

    Pretty sure it would. I think the point is that it shouldn't be the really low-fat stuff - just doesn't melt right.

    Dinner 2020

    @Franci – in all the crab and pasta talk, your fried cod got lost! It looks so good. @Anna N – so how did you make your nice looking gravy😄? @robirdstx – I love smashed burgers best of all! Not sure where this belongs. I remember a discussion of this somewhere. Almost 2 qts. of corn cob stock: Now I’ve got to figure out what I’m going to do with them. Appetizer tonight: @robirdstx's Pan-Fried String Cheese. So good and surprisingly filling. I only ate one and had to wait awhile to have the rest of my dinner! Salad: And penne rigate with meat sauce:
  6. Biscuits (US kind)? What temp and what setting, please. Thank you!
  7. I've been many times. The original store was directly behind my college dorm and every time we could afford it, my boyfriend and I would skip the dining hall and go get a box lunch. I've never had anything that wasn't delicious. As a matter of fact, Mr. Kim and I celebrated our quarantine wedding anniversary back in March with Sally Bell box lunches - as chronicled here. It's a wonderful tradition that I hope carries on as long as I do! Thanks so much for posting that wonderful video.
  8. I hesitate to post this here. All I did was bake biscuits from frozen, macerate some berries, and activate some aerosol coconut whipped cream: It was really good, though.

    Breakfast 2020!

    I did not. I found them at Wegman's. I need to get some rings and make my own and English muffins, too.
  10. The VA Diner peanut pie is just exactly that. And it is incredibly good. Just make sure to use REAL VA peanuts. They are the absolute best.

    @Ann_T - Every time I see one of your posts, I get a new craving. @CantCookStillTry – The vegetable mix is sold here as “Veg-All” in the US. Here you can also get it in cans. I have to say that yours looks like better quality vegetables than the bags I’ve purchased in the past. It’s not a bad start to a quick soup. Hot dogs for dinner with fixed up canned baked beans and fruit: And corn (it’s August):

    Lunch 2020

    @Duvel – lovely pictures. That church reminds me a little of one that we saw in New Orleans: And the crackling is just incredible. @chefmd – as you can see, you influenced my lunch yesterday: Bologna on white with Duke’s and lettuce.😁

    Breakfast 2020!

    @blue_dolphin – loved reading about Fettuccine Alfredo vs Pasta all'Alfredo. I realized after seeing the video that while I may not have eaten much Fettuccini Alfredo in the past (see dinner thread), I have been eating Pasta all’Alfredo all my life. In my family, Pasta all’Alfredo is what you give to babies who aren’t ready for tomato sauce yet and to sick people and to yourself when you need a little comforting. It’s funny to sometimes find very Italian things still happening in my extremely assimilated Washington DC via Mississippi Delta via Genoa Italy family. Like the fact that they ALL put cabbage, white beans, and pasta in their "vegetable" soup. @Ann_T - gorgeous blueberries. We love picking them in the summer and stocking the freezer with local ones. On the Great British Baking Show whenever someone tries to bake with blueberries, one of the judges always says, “Blueberries don’t really have any flavor, do they?”. Lead me to wonder where in the world they are sourcing tasteless blueberries! 😄 My breakfasts are all looking same-same, I know. But the truth is that I am just not adventurous by nature and especially not in the morning. If I eat at all, I want crunchy, buttery bread, eggs, and pork. Potatoes if they are very easy or if someone else is making them. Yesterday: English muffins, NC sausage, IP eggs. Today: IP eggs, crumpets, and some of a ham slice that was languishing in the deli drawer.
