  1. I really like this idea, but what bags do you use? I don't think a ham would fit even my largest width ones.

    Dinner 2020

    @liamsaunt – I love the char that you got on your miso salmon. Ours didn’t turn out that color (you can see how pale ours was in the picture back on Wednesday, the 25th). I’m completely sure (having coveted your food and respected your cooking for so long) that yours was NOT overcooked. Was your salmon broiled or grilled? @CantCookStillTry – does your husband’s new job mean a move for your family? Or will he be gone for long stretches? @Ann_T – having been raised in a blended family (US and UK😉), that prime rib and Yorkshire pudding meal is heaven to me.

    Breakfast 2020!

    @CantCookStillTry - either HP or marmalade. Not both at the same time. Though...🤔 Jessica's leftover Watergate salad from Thanksgiving dinner, ET bagel, hashbrown patty, and an egg that needed a Barry White song accompaniment when the yolk was cut open. Wow!
  4. So much fun reading along with everyone’s prep and serving of dinner and your menus. Thank you to everyone who posted them. Sorry for the seemingly never ending post. Scroll on by if you begin to get sleepy😊! @gulfporter – that cranberry cake looks great. I’ve bookmarked the recipe that smithy found. And thank you so much for showing your notes. I love seeing stuff like that. @kayb – bless you for your kindness in taking a dinner to those folks. Jessica took one to a friend whose family had been exposed by a drop-in family member who thought they were safe a we
  5. This is fine, as long as the huge, tough leaves are also available. My idea of heaven is porky, long cooked collards with a hint of sweetness, a touch of vinegar and showers of black pepper. If I were confronted with only "baby" collards, I would be tempted to toss them in the face of the produce manager. 😁

    Turkey Leftovers

    I love a plain old cold turkey, mayo, S&P, lettuce on white bread sandwich, but this was my dinner last night and is my favorite sandwich in the world: Hot turkey, dressing, and gravy on white bread. My gravy was a little thin this year, but tasted great.
  7. Thanks so much for asking. Unfortunately pretty much the same. Maybe a little worse since my other knee is starting to react to being depended on so much more. I go to the doctor on Wednesday, though, so I’ve got my fingers crossed that he will have a plan !
  8. I don't have any really good pictures, but our turkey was the best we've ever cooked. I got two bone-in breast halves and 4 drumsticks at Wegmans. I sealed each of the breast halves and 2 each of the drumsticks in bags with butter, black pepper, and Bell's seasoning (poultry seasoning). Dinner was at 6:30. I put the drumsticks in at 3am at 148F. The breasts were put in at noon. It all came out at 5:30pm. It was all supposed to be seared in ghee in an iron skillet at high heat. This was one of the few slip ups of the meal. Mr. Kim is just not a natural cook - he will follow directions
  9. The recipe that I use calls for slices of white bread with crusts, and it tastes wonderful, so I'm sure it would be fine.
  10. To bring bacon wrapped dates up-to-date (😊), drizzle with saba after taking out of the oven. Sublime.

    Dinner 2020

    @Margaret Pilgrim - mmmm, onion soup. My very favorite soup! Looks so good. @patti– I’m so glad to hear that your knees were nothing serious! @Shelby – I’d give a LOT to have one of your big sandwiches sitting in front of me right now. Last night, I mixed the miso sauce (white miso, sake, sugar, Dijon) to brush on the salmon and advised on timing and Mr. Kim did the actual cooking: Broccoli with lemon pepper, buttered noodles, and the salmon. It was very, very good. And very satisfying.
  12. Much cuter. And they actually resemble bunnies! 😁
  13. OMG - those "bunnies"! Hilarious. I think that food styling has advanced so much in the last 50 years!

    Thank you so much, @curls. I've added that to my shopping list.

    Dinner 2020

    Yep. I still tell the story about trying to convince my four year old honorary niece this fact when we were eating in a Mexican restaurant once and she was refusing to eat their tacos. She had only had her mom's before and was extremely suspicious of that white stuff. She is now a HS teacher and completely understands the frustration of dealing with intransigent children. This is the same child that accused me of eating COWS while I was eating a burger. When I said that the hot dogs she was currently eating were also COW, she looked at me pityingly and informed me that they were the udder

    Dinner 2020

    @patti – you are surely in my thoughts right now. I hope you are feeling better soon. Such gorgeous food, y’all! I want it all. I want @Shelby's big sandwiches, @robirdstx's smothered pork, all those damn pizza’s and crusty breads, @Dejah's and @Shelby's pot pies, lovely rare steaks, LASAGNA, shit I can’t even identify!, scallops, @CantCookStillTry's charcuterie tray and pork, @patti's short ribs, etc., etc. In my head I’m singing, “Don’t care how, I want it NOW!” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory! Bless his heart. Mr. Kim is doing his very best. He’s
  17. That sounds lovely, @David Ross! Another salad that is perfect for Thanksgiving is your Apple, Pear, & Parsnip Salad.

    Breakfast 2020!

    @CantCookStillTry – those bacon sammies look outstanding. When I was a little girl my English grandmother would smuggle pounds of it over on her trips to see us. I loved them with HP, but also with orange marmalade. @chromedome– that waffle breakfast has me wishing that Mr. Kim was a better cook😊! Yeasted waffles are the very best and the pineapple looks perfect. I find myself craving a hot breakfast lately. I’ve looked for some frozen prepared things that might be a good breakfast for when I’m alone here – stuff that I can microwave quickly (if I sit down, I’m do
  19. Well, I put it on top of a baking sheet. But, to be honest, I cannot remember the last time I roasted a whole turkey in the oven. I've used my Nesco for at least the last 20 years. Turkeys are good and all, but the real culinary point of the day to me are the side dishes and whole turkeys take up to much oven real estate! 😁
  20. I've been spending a LOT of time reading/watching about Thanksgiving this year and I find myself craving mac and cheese and deviled eggs. If I were healthy, they'd be on my menu.
  21. BBQ names can be amazingly micro-regional. In the central northern section of NC that I grew up spending time in, you must further specify how you want your BBQ (assumed) pork (assumed) sandwich cut - i.e. - "sliced sandwich", "chopped sandwich", or "minced sandwich".
  22. That would be a cookout. In the US south, we even have a hamburger/hotdog stand named that. 😁
  23. Well, at least one then has a contribution for the "I will never again..." thread.
  24. Lucky you have that extra large CSO. 😁
