    Food Gifts

    I usually give an assortment of my Christmas goodies. This year, I'll do that, but I'm also going to repeat the Holiday Bread that I did last year: It was so good and well received and EASY (bread machine).

    Food Waste @ Home

    Not ME! I wasn't the one with the old lime! Though, sometimes they get to the bottom of the fruit bowls and turn into dried limes. Those get chiseled open and put into the air freshener pot with some cinnamon and cloves.

    Food Waste @ Home

    I throw away mushrooms as soon as I notice them. 😁 Seriously, I have always been a bad one to waste food. I don't care for leftovers and am really bad at re-purposing them. Luckily, Mr. Kim was raised right and determinedly plows through all the leftovers that are in the fridge. He packs his own lunch and has been known to munch on a snack consisting of slaw, green beans and raw cauliflower (his poor co-workers). I have gotten better at cooking less food, though. I was famous for cooking for a crowd when it was only the 3 of us. It finally occurs to me to cut a recipe in half.

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Now those are some onion rings. I detest the puffy heavily coated battered ones - the onion just seems to steam inside. Those look perfect!

    Do I need to cook this?

    I'm thinking that the steam bake option on the CSO is probably my best option. These hams are small enough to fit.

    Do I need to cook this?

    NO! I wouldn't microwave it at all. What I meant was that some of our guests might slip into the kitchen and microwave a slice for themselves.

    Do I need to cook this?

    That was kind of my thought, too. However, some folks might sneak into the kitchen and heat it a bit in the microwave. I think in that case, a glaze might be tasty.

    Do I need to cook this?

    Thanks so much, ladies! I'll do this then.

    Do I need to cook this?

    I am planning on serving this ham for our Christmas Eve open house. My plan is sliced thin, room temperature with rolls. I should know this already, but do I really need to cook this, if it is going to be served room temperature? I know that it is safe to not heat it, but is there some flavor component that I'd be missing if I didn't?

    I see it. It's the presentation, isn't it?

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Sous vide pork chops seared after reaching 140F: Really moist and tender. Served with green beans, Stove Top cornbread dressing, Bob Evans mashed potatoes and jarred gravy: With gravy: Which I was surprised at. I’ve had jarred chicken and beef gravy and not cared for them at all, but the pork was pretty tasty. Rolls:
