  1. My best friend, who I've known since high school has just bought a vacation/retirement home on the Cape. They live in Sudbury MA and the house is on the Outer Cape - within striking distance of both Wellfleet and P'town. She has friends who have already bought houses there and they have vacationed there a lot in the past few years, so she knows a bit about the area. I told her about this topic and she was very interested. I'm going to go back and do some copying and pasting and send her some info. So, I'll be paying attention to this topic, but not posting.

    @Ann_T – I adore snails, but haven’t ever made them at home. How do you get them? Canned is the only way I see them. Many years ago when we lived right outside of Washington DC, I used to find them at the fish counter all prepped – stuffed into shells with garlic butter. You just bought as many as you wanted and baked them. But I haven’t seen them like that in years. @alwaysdrawing – steak, baked potato, and broccoli. Such a classic, satisfying and delicious meal. @Shelby – I’m so glad that you treated yourself. You deserved it! On Father’s Day I

    Breakfast 2021

    Happy Birthday to Mr. @chefmd! @blue_dolphin – Like @heidih, I’m finding myself enamored of that coconut! @Ann_T – that is one perfect looking poached egg. And what is better than eggs on toast and SUCH toast🥰! Monday: English muffin with egg and cheese and bacon. Yesterday: ET bagel with smoked salmon cream cheese, scrambled eggs, apple slices. This morning: English muffin swimming in butter, Havarti, and hard salami.
  4. These were so fresh. Super crisp, but not hard like the gas station ones can be!
  5. @RWood - just gorgeous, as always! @trisme11 - those are lovely and the flavor combination sounds perfect. Made some cookies to put in the freezer for when our first house guests in over a year are here for 4th of July weekend – Jacques Torres chocolate chips:
  6. Mr. Kim surprised me with this delivery about 45 minutes ago. We've already gotten into all three and I've eating about 1/2 cup of corn nuts! Jordan almonds, corn nuts, and Tropical fruit "salad".
  7. I really loved that. It takes a special relationship to imbue something that could be mundane, or indeed dismal, with such warmth and love. Thanks so much for posting it, @liuzhou!
  8. Hi, @farcego! Welcome to eGullet. I think you'll find a lot of folks here that share your interests. And I think we're all interested in all the places you've lived in and how they have influenced you.
  9. Welcome to eGullet, @GaroldCrash22! Looking forward to learning more about you.

    It freezes beautifully. So glad you took the plunge and that you liked it.

    I love Harris-Teeter, but we don't have them here. They skipped right over us - they are in NC, Charlottesville, Williamsburg, and, of course, NOVA. But not in Richmond. I've found that for some unfathomable reason - even in the deep south - good quality, small batch grits can be really hard to find in grocery stores. But I'm not aware that Anson Mills sells through stores at all. Please correct me if I'm wrong - I'd love to get some.

    In our area, at least, Publix is very much superior to Kroger. Wegman's is the best we have as far as non-specialty grocery stores go.

    Dinner 2021

    @Dante – I’ve had sauté pan pizza and was surprised at how good it was. Great bottom crust! @TdeV – both of those marinades/basting sauces sound delicious! @Duvel – gorgeous lasagna! @Shelby – all looked good, but the meatloaf, potato, green bean and GRAVY plate got me drooly. Last night: Havarti and ham on dinner rolls.

    Lunch 2021

    @Paul Bacino – love the mortadella. I’ll take @rotuts pistachios if he’ll eat the peppercorns😁. After church brunch at our favorite local deli. Mr. Kim had the British burger: I had shrimp salad sandwich and a knish:

    @Ann_T – I never thought of doing individual Shepherd’s pies, but I have some of those lion’s head-type onion soup bowls stashed up in the attic and they would be so perfect! Thanks for the idea. Yesterday: I just love stuff piled up on buttered toast! This morning: Peaches, toasted dinner rolls, IP eggs.
  16. I say this (much less eloquently) all the time about many things.
  17. Well, I can only say that these look and sound fantastic. I loved the idea of the broccoli one and would probably do the cheese add in with that. I'm also thinking about how good roasted cauliflower would be. I understood the "dessert" reference (perhaps with a little smile?), this looks like nothing I've ever seen before and a big thank you for posting it.
  18. @Toliver - I've never seen that brand, though we do get Utz, but I'd love to try them. I'd be interested in seeing what malt vinegar does to a chip. In case anyone is interested, I finished those vinegar treated strawberries yesterday morning which means that they lasted just over a week. I'm good with those results. They were a little surface dry, which showed the age, I think. But inside they were sweet and juicy: I made a batch of brownies from an Aldi mix and topped the batter with some PB chips and white chocolate chips: I wouldn

    LOL! Us, too. I've been cussing those slippery pits while I flip them all over the kitchen.

    @Tropicalsenior - Jessica was thrilled that you made her pineapple casserole. How odd that it reminded you of mango. Last night was bacon jam cheeseburgers w/ fried onions, Brussels sprouts, @patti's oven fries, and the first of the season’s marinated cucumbers. We’re eating a lot of @patti's fries. They are really good.

    Breakfast 2021

    Not sure if this counts as breakfast or lunch. We ate at noon, but it was the first thing we had that morning. @CantCookStillTry made sausage McMuffins the other night and I got a taste for one. We only had one English muffin in the house (I can’t keep them long – I love them too much), so I made one sausage and egg muffin and one grilled sausage, egg, and cheese on bread. I did the eggs in a ring: Done: So good! The grilled one: Cutaway view: This was one honking sandwich. Got eaten, though. We
  22. I just told Mr. Kim this story to illustrate something (I've forgotten what).
  23. What's the old joke? Reservations. Seriously, 75% of the time in that situation it's restaurant food at some level. If we can't face going out, breakfast for dinner, sandwiches & soup.
  24. I've always marveled at the fries in Greek restaurants (in the US). Why are they so good? I've seriously never been to a Greek place where they weren't excellent.
