  1. There is apparently a recipe for something called "Smashed Eggs" in her cookbook Modern Comfort Food. Once you cut through all of the blathering by the goober who wrote the article, you realize that it's a recipe for soft-boiled eggs on toast. Really, Ina?
  2. I made Shrimp & Banana for Mr. Kim 8 years ago. I have not repeated that recipe and if he wants it again, he'll have to cook it himself. 🤢

    @heidih – I’ve always wanted to try that bread, too! I’d also like a brioche version. @CantCookStillTry – lovely food (including the doughnut) and view! Is that where you live? Buttered wholegrain toast with stuff to pile on top:
  4. I made one of @Norm Matthews' pineapple upside down Bundt cakes for Mr. Kim to take out to his dad and stepmom’s: This one was a little odd. It was as if the brown sugar-melted butter mixture was too loose – it all seemed to melt away and leave the fruit high and dry😉. This is what the one I made back in 2017 looked like: Much nicer looking, I think. The directions say to place the brown sugar mixture in between the pineapple slices, but this batch was actually pourable. Any ideas, @Norm Matthews? Mr. Kim said that everyone loved it. I’m going to make ano

    KFC 2012–

    You are GOOD! I was searching for something and came across that reference in my blog - in 2008 I stopped on the way to another office I was working at that day and bought one for a small lunch. It is even the one that is near us! Quite a memory you have!

    Dinner 2021

    @heidih – You would have been welcome. He ate half of the baked spaghetti and I ate about a third of my gyro! The tuna is to remind me to make some tuna salad as soon as my eggs have gotten “mature” enough to hard-cook. We are trying to use more of our emergency stock (my guest room looks like we are extremely generous Preppers – half cans and boxes of foods and the other half rolls of Christmas wrap and ribbons and tags😁). @btbyrd – what a perfect burger. I love a smashburger cooked on a griddle or an iron skillet! When the food authorities started saying, “DON’T mash your
  7. Just so. That's what makes pears such a great fruit to keep. In the fridge, they "hold" really well - basically static. When you take them out, they start to ripen. Some sweet friend of Jessica's sent her a box with nine of the Royal Riviera pears from Harry and David. They are huge pears - sliced up, one served all three of us. Using the method I described above, we were able to keep them perfectly until the last one.

    @robirdstx and @liamsaunt and @Norm Matthews – thanks to you three, I’ll be putting Katsu on the menu list for next week! 😁 @Ann_T – your spaghetti and meatballs look so good! I think that you’ve inspired me! I hope that Moe is feeling better soon! Stopped at a favorite Greek/Italian restaurant to pick up dinner. We shared the tiropita and spanakopita: I had the gyro: Mr. Kim had the special baked spaghetti with pepperoni, meatballs, peppers, mushrooms, and Italian sausage: We both got salads w/ the house dressing:

    Breakfast 2021

    One of Jessica’s friends tested out some chocolate/chocolate chip/dried cherry bread on us: It looks burnt and it was slightly overdone, but that’s mostly the cocoa. Sliced open: Done for a few minutes at 300F Bake/Steam in the CSO with butter: She wanted feedback. My comments: “Well, I had a piece last night at midnight and am having another for breakfast, so I obviously like this a LOT! I had it right out of the bag last night and this morning warmed up slices in my convection/steam oven. It is incredibly rich, and the dried cherries are perfect. Just a

    @Ann_T - poor Moe. But that sandwich is a glorious send-off! This morning I had some of the panettone French toast and sage sausage: A lot of brown, but so good. I'm glad I got some this morning - it's almost gone! Mr. Kim seems to be a big fan. Just ordered a couple from Amazon.

    The real reason that I bought that rotisserie chicken at Sam’s: Everything but the bread and the chicken was homemade. Exactly what I wanted.

    Lunch 2021

    They were on sale, so I got the strawberry/cream one, too! The cream layer is sweetened sour cream: Revered across the South. 😁
  13. I'm with everyone else - I'm finding this really interesting, @CantCookStillTry! It is like a food blog once removed. And bless his heart for indulging you and, therefore, us! I confess to being such a picky eater (no spicy, no Indian) that I'd probably be going for those tragic looking sandwiches and picking out the peppers and such from the salads. The lamb and sweet potato thing sounds good, though. I hope he continues to indulge us!

    I don't even think about it. Growing up spending all my summers in small town NC, "congealed" is what I've always heard. 😄

    Dinner 2021

    Monday night we started with some Crab Delights (mini crab cakes) leftover from a takeout lunch on Saturday: Rotisserie chicken, green beans & potatoes, yellow squash, dressing, and gravy: It was a Sam’s chicken, bought expressly for the purpose of having hot open-faced chicken sandwiches with gravy like Ann_T did. We had the legs Monday and will have the sandwiches tonight. I did the squash a little differently this time. I was watching some cooking show, and someone mentioned that they scoop out the seeds in summer squash to stop them from being watery whe
