    Breakfast 2021

    Actually, they reminded me of your pikelets that I made!

    Breakfast 2021

    @rotuts – your breakfast reminds me of some lasagna soup I make and reminds me that I want to have it again soon! You’ve also reminded me that I need to transfer a bit of my new bottle of EVOO into a squeeze bottle and refrigerate the rest. @AlaMoi – I’m madly in love with Nicco. I would share all my breakfasts with him. I made a batch of the fruit drop scones that @blue_dolphin introduced: Thank you, ma'am! I used blueberries. I’d love to try them with black currants, but they are impossible to find here even though they are technically not banned anymor

    Dinner 2021

    @Eatmywords – lovely looking almond cookies! @Shelby – my left shoulder is damp from Mr. Kim leaning over me and drooling at your muffuletta! When we went to NOLA, that was the one place that he requested we go. He’d been there for a business trip and fallen in love with them. Dinner last night – salads to start: Aldi Red Bag Chicken fillets on brioche buns with long grain and wild rice and applesauce: These are frozen fully cooked boneless breast cutlets. They are decent for when we want a chicken sandwich without going out or making
  4. I seriously thought these were oatmeal cookies. I am appalled at the quiche. No toes, though. So there's that. 😁

    Breakfast 2021

    I've had the same issue a lot (this is why there is a blue bag full of things in my freezer that do NOT belong in the home of a GRITS). The best ones I've made are the ones where I patted out the dough (by hand) and folded it over itself. This morning: Toasted bread machine bread and IP egg.

    Dinner 2021

    @CantCookStillTry – Happy Birthday to your son! Cheesy bread looks like something I need in my life. What does it involve? Your husband’s smoked meat looks fantastic. And I’m with you on hating the prep for DIY tacos. In fact, I detest prepping for any dish that needs a pile of “fixings” – tacos, hamburgers, hot dogs, etc. I love the foods themselves, but find the prep tedious. Also, your pies are full-stop gorgeous and I’d love to have one in front of me right now! TicTak – Happy birthday to your son, too! And welcome to the wonderful addition to your family. L
  7. I'm not sure. I've never peeked at that point. I know that a lot of my kitchen is not level and I need to check that, but that seems a little extreme! 🙂
  8. This time I made the most basic white loaf in the instruction book (and doubled the salt - thanks, @ElsieD): I really hate that slope and wish I could figure out what to do to stop it. But I was happy with the crust and crumb:
  9. @Chris Hennes – your croissants are absolutely gorgeous and make me wish I’d devoted some of my recent unlimited free time to trying to learn how to do laminated dough instead of whatever the hell I’ve been doing instead😁! I made a couple of loaves of banana bread and sent one out to my in laws with Mr. Kim on Saturday. And now my husband and I are isolating from each other because no one out there can be bothered to be safe. Sorry – I walk around seething when he has to go out there for that very reason. Sometimes it overflows🙄. Our loaf: I used my ea

    Lunch 2021

    @blue_dolphin – aren’t you the clever girl? Saturday: Ham and Swiss on grocery store rye. We we were out grocery shopping on Sunday and stopped at a nearby pizza/sandwich place for take out. I think we may have found our new Slice-for-each-of-us-and-share-a-sandwich place. We’ll have to try out their meatball subs and cheese steaks to make sure, though. I had a chicken hoagie: Mr. Kim had a slice: Today: Redneck nachos – chips, canned chili, and Velveeta. Heated in the microwave. 🤣
  11. I never saw it, but have been haunted by it nevertheless.
  12. The idea of eating any primate fills me with horror.
  13. We have loved both episodes. Love Stanley Tucci and appreciate his joy in what he's eating and who he's meeting. It's funny how much I'm noticing all the touching that people do - I wonder if I'd have noticed it so much prior to the pandemic? And while I appreciate what Tony brought to the world and miss his contributions, I have to say that Tucci suits my disposition better than Bourdain's too-cool-for-school attitude and occasional dick-fencing did.

    @patti – great looking BBQ shrimp. That is one of our favorite meals. I just checked and I haven’t made it in over two years. I have two different recipes that I’ve used over the years. I have some shrimp in the freezer and I’m going to try your recipe soon. Thanks for posting it. @CantCookStillTry – I love the look of your roasted potatoes. Share your method? And no need for explanation. I’ve done the same thing with Bisto and frozen fries! More red meat. I need some! @LenoraCR – my sister! So nice to meet another person who cannot tolerate spic
