  1. I've been crying on and off since finding out on FB last night. He was the sweetest and most generous of people. I was trying to tell Mr. Kim what made David so special. I loved that he was so knowledgeable about fine and elegant foods and still appreciated simple home cooking. He was thrilled when I sent him 30+ year old copies of Taste of Home magazine from my grandmother's home and was proud of the fact that he had had some of his recipes published in the magazine. His service to eG was complete and I don't know that his shoes can be filled here. I will miss his kindness and sense of humor so much.
  2. I'd forgotten about Dale's. Good stuff. I just added it to my shopping list. Neither Mr. Kim or I like eggplant, but we both agree we'd love to try your Eggplant Parm! It looks fantastic. I'm just gobsmacked at your energy, girl and loving this!

    Christmas Day menu from the Kingsport Inn (Tennessee) in 1946: Just ran across this on FB. Wish it were mine!

    Dinner last night was fixed-up sloppy joes and baked beans, marinated cucumbers, and a Napa salad with Jessica’s good dressing:

    Dinner 2021

    @rotuts – your “Shepherd’s Pie” sounds good and I love how much gravy there is. I usually end up making extra beef stock enhanced Bisto because mine sometimes is a little dry. @JoNorvelleWalker – I use Bell’s poultry seasoning all the time, but I’ve never heard of the gravy. It is now on my Amazon list! Thank you! @Shelby – I always love the look of your tomatoes (we are nearly at the end of our season☹️) and the fig crostata is gorgeous! Someone on a FB food group I belong to posted doves. Folks were freaking out. I told them to chill and call them squab if it made them feel better! Thought of you and Ronnie! @Duvel – oh, dear. Your schnitzel is lovely. I’m full of Mexican food, but would make room for one of those. Dinner last Tuesday was a huge cheater feast (except for dessert): Frozen rolls, Rice a Roni long grain and wild rice mix, frozen chicken Kiev and even a salad mix: Served with fresh corn, though: Dessert was completely homemade. @gfweb posted a beautiful peach cobbler and posted the recipe for it. Before vanilla bean ice cream: Jessica made us a delicious dinner on Thursday: Napa cabbage salad with a tangy/sweet dressing, cilantro, and toasted ramen noodles, fish (stick) tacos with a Napa slaw, her street corn, and flautas made with Mr. Kim’s BBQ pork, her pickled shallots & pimento cheese. Just excellent!

    So many lovely looking lunches! Saturday was brisket sandwiches from a halal BBQ eaten in the car:

    Breakfast 2021

    Well, @Ann_T and @blue_dolphin, I can see I need to get some French toast out of the freezer! Y’all have me craving it! @blue_dolphin – I’m not a Spam fan, but I’d try that in a minute. I’d have to unwrap it, though. I can’t bear the flavor of the seaweed wrapper. Wednesday: Cheese toast and peaches. Thursday: Bland country ham (☹️) on toast, blackberries, and IP eggs. Friday: On Sunday I made brunch after church at home: Fruit kabobs that I made for coffee hour at church and packaged Belgian waffles.
  11. I am not a coffee lover, so this tiramisu looks delightful to me! A couple of recent things - one legitimately delicious and the other a little silly but popular and admittedly good! The delicious was a peach cobbler that @gfweb posted awhile back and shared the recipe. We got some amazingly good peaches at Costco and I put it together. Before baking: Out of the oven: Plated (but before vanilla bean ice cream): It was excellent! Thank you so much for posting the recipe, @gfweb. We've got some frozen peaches and look forward to having this dessert in the winter. Edited because I forgot the silly thing. I made those greater-than-the-sum-of-their-parts chocolate/caramel/saltines candy:
  12. I was coffee lady at church this Sunday. Among the things I made were those retro ranch oyster cracker things. Low attendance, so we've got lots of these to snack upon:
  13. Welcome, @PadreANT! I'm glad to "meet" you and hope to hear more from you in the future. I'm sure you'll find all the help you need here!
  14. Thank you so much for letting us know this. She was loved here and was so important to the eGullet community. I'm so sorry you lost your mother and you best friend all in one. May her memory be a comfort and a blessing!
