    Dinner 2020

    @liamsaunt – your sliders sound wonderful. What a great combination. I’ve made myself a note on my “Menus” Word doc to do that sometime. We opted for an easy dinner Thursday night – Mexican. The pictures are kind of sad looking because they package all the topping separately for takeout. Jessica’s beef chimichangas with rice: My taquitos: Mr. Kim’s enchiladas looked a little better: Everything tasted good, though. On Thursday, I continued with the char siu prep. This is out of the oven after the first 15 minutes an
  2. Jessica received a surprise box of vegetables from Hungary Harvest (the “imperfect fruit and veg delivery company that we got the last batch from) – she had thought that the other box was the whole order. I didn’t take a picture, but she got broccoli, zucchini, cantaloupes, yellow tomatoes, avocados, and celery. I used the broccoli to make MORE broccoli salad to have on hand: Cooked some collards from the LAST box: And cut up the cantaloupes:
  3. Thank you, ma'am. I should say that I couldn't find boneless ribs, so mine are bone-in. I checked a couple of recipes for bone-in and, interestingly, the time given is pretty much the same as yours for boneless, @ElsieD.
  4. Hoping to get an answer today (I'm sorry to be so late, it didn't occur to me that I should try this until this morning). Would y'all please look at this recipe and see if you think that I could successfully do it in the IP? If so, do you think that I need to make any changes? And how long would you do it? Low or High pressure? I generally make this a day ahead, refrigerate and skim off the fat the next day before heating (which I'll do in the CSO). I'm serving it tomorrow. Our whole dinner is a special request from Jessica. @JAZ - Lady of the IP, I'd love your advice here
  5. Welcome to eG, @Tactical_Pickle! How did you get into freeze drying meal prep? I'd love to know what kinds of things that you like to cook.
  6. Welcome to eG! I agree with @Smithy - this is a great place for the science-minded. I think you'll find a lot of folks to talk things over with here. I love the German food that I've had, so I look forward especially to your "everyday" food!
  7. Welcome to eGullet, Dakender! I share your bread machine frustration. Mine is due not to measurements, but to a really badly translated manual. So, I feel your pain. There are some truly excellent bakers here - scientist/artist hybrids and I know that you will get lots of help!

    Dinner 2020

    @Shelby – I definitely have you fooled😁! I am SO not organized. I impose it on myself. I grew up with a mom that was so naturally organized that she DIDN’T MAKE LISTS. Maybe a shopping list for a major party or holiday, but pretty much no shopping or To-Do lists. My life is chaotic enough – if I didn’t have a billion lists, it would be just wandering around in hip-deep crap chewing on raw/frozen food. We would basically be cave men. @Franci– sorry you are having such bad luck with food in Sarasota. My dad and stepmom live there and they say basically the same thing. Ther

    Pasta shapes

    I'm not a fan of really al dente pasta, so I don't care for any of the shapes that are a lot thicker in the center. Bowties, tortellini, rotini, fusilli. I just never seem to be able to get them cooked right - soft and slippy, but not gooey.

    Breakfast 2020!

    @Ann_T – tell Moe I will trade him all of my breakfasts for a week’s worth of your bread! That is some lovely ham. Had some of the panettone French toast with bacon this morning:
  11. Welcome to eGullet, Jodi! I'd love to know what foods you enjoy cooking and eating. And a vague idea of where you are located. Looking forward to your contributions - and culinary school stories!!

    Breakfast 2020!

    I cooked the eggs like an unfolded omelet, slid it out on a plate and cut them with a biscuit cutter.

    Dinner 2020

    I've got your recipe for Char Siu on my refrigerator, all the ingredients handy, and country ribs thawing right now. Am starting tomorrow! @pastameshugana – congratulations on your impending status as Grandpa! What a lovely blessing to come out of such an awful year! Working ahead a bit - with some help from @Ann_T, I am making pork stock to freeze. We have decided on a SV pork roast for Christmas eve and I’ll use the stock to make a gravy/sauce – before going in the oven: Pork neck, onions, carrots, celery, pepper, rosemary, thyme, sage. After a good

    Lunch 2020

    On Saturday, Mr. Kim took me to lunch to a place called &Pizza. He had gotten a free pizza from there at a Yelp event and liked it well enough to take me back. I was pleasantly surprised. This is an East coast chain, but the pizza was very good especially the tomato sauce. It is set up like a sub shop where they “build” your pizza while you’re in line. The way the line is set up is you choose your dough, then sauces and toppings; it goes into the oven and finally on to the finishing toppings. Sauces: Building my pizza: Finishing toppings
