    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
  3. 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.

    They were on sale, so I got the strawberry/cream one, too! The cream layer is sweetened sour cream: Revered across the South. 😁
  9. 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

    Lunch yesterday: Bologna rolls, chips, and a mandarin orange congealed salad from a local store.

    Breakfast 2021

    We bought a pannetone before Christmas. This week, I made some French toast with it: I sliced it and set it out overnight: Instead of my usual cinnamon sugar, I used some of the sweet spice mix that my BIL made with his own citrus zest: Sunday: The last of the egg “muffins” I made and a freezer gift: sausage rolls from Christmas breakfast. This morning:

    @weinoo – that is honestly the first sheet pan meal that has appealed to me. @Shelby – I forgot to say – Happy Birthday to Ronnie! @Paul Bacino – braciole is a favorite of ours, but I’ve never prepped the meat like you have. We used to get it brought to us from a Philly butcher shop once in a while. Not lately, though. You make it look fairly simple. I should give it a try. Friday dinner was IP brisket and gravy. Browned brisket: Finished: Served with IP green beans & potatoes, noodles, and toasted sourdough:

    @robirdstx – Your nachos remind me of @Shelby’s French fries – not enough. 😄 Sunday lunch after making and delivering lunches to some city homeless shelters was at a fairly new soul food place that we’ve eaten at one other time called Ms. Girliees Kitchen. I forgot I’d gotten the Crab Delights before and got them again: They are delicious, but I wish I’d remembered because I really want to try their shrimp stuffed hushpuppies! They were out of meatloaf last time, so I got it this time: It was delicious, and like Frank (the owner) pro

    @Ann_T – I showed Mr. Kim the picture of your bacon baguette that you posted on FB. I believe he should be in North Dakota by now. 😁 Breakfast yesterday: The last of the egg “muffins” I made and a freezer gift: sausage rolls from Christmas breakfast.
  18. I confess to not being the best housekeeper. My surfaces are cleaned, but floors? Not so much. I used to joke that I knew it was time to mop the floor when the animals started to get stuck to it. 😄 Not that bad, but all my hard floors tend to be a little gritty a LOT of the time. Consequently, I wear shoes ALL the time. I have been accused of being like the princess and the pea and if I step on something gritty barefoot, I have to sit down and make sure every speck is brushed off. That would truly interfere with my life, so shoes it is. Also, I'm diabetic and have some numbness - I d
  19. Refreezing puff pastry works very well. I've done it for years with my sausage rolls. I thaw it to make the rolls and refreeze before baking. I take them out of the freezer and thaw and bake. I think it would work perfectly for this.

    @Shelby – lasagna!!! I have seriously been craving it for over a year. Am I lazy, or what? @liamsaunt – thank you for the batter recipe. I’ll be making that soon. Your chicken parm looks fantastic. Between your pasta and @Shelby’s I’m really in the mood for Italian. Last night we picked up dinner at Mezeh, a Mid-Atlantic (mostly VA and MD) chain of Mediterranean restaurants. Mr. Kim had a free bowl from Yelp: Arugula, brown basmati rice, chicken shawarma, cilantro hummus, Lebanese tabbouli, crumbled feta and tzatziki. The flavor of this was very go

    @blue_dolphin - I just love the look of your drop scones! Thanks for that link – I’m hoping to try both the sweet and the savoury. Yesterday: Eggs on hashbrown patties and Edwards country ham. Today: Same as Wednesday.

    That is utterly insane. In the US Amazon has TWELVE 9-oz. bags for $29.82!
  23. I wasn't really clear on the concept. I've seen a couple and found them a little low energy. I don't need Emeril-size or Guy Fieri-size energy, but the ladies I saw were a little sleepy. I do like a strong personality.
  24. Is anyone familiar with One Note or Copy Me That? Any opinions? Thanks!
