  1. Nice guide, very funny! I remember that spirt. We drank a decent amount on our trip. Reminded me of the worst bottom shelf vodka w just a whisper of sake. One night, after a few too many shots, I remember my vision blurring and thinking I might go blind. Always wished to get invited to a meal like this but it doesn't appear likely given burb's life and limitations on meeting new people. The kids are our only hope. I encourage them to be-friend anyone who isn't American, especially Asians, for just the chance to cozy up to the parents and get them them to cook for us. Is that

    Amazing pics, both frame worthy. If you zoom in, just next to the house, you can see the tops of extremely wild portobellos aka 'Gros champignon avec du sable' ripe for the picking!

    Dinner 2020

    Orecchiette w de-cased pork sausage, cubed chick breast, spinach, red pepper, G&O pesto sc topped w a blasphemous shaving of smoked gouda w added an interesting profile (largely a result of someone forgetting to replenish the DAMN GRATED CHEEESE! : )
  4. Oh, didn't see that. I'm confused. it's ok to bring a 20lb (bbq) propane tank indoors? Or in my case, if you use a propane stove, disconnect the line and plug it into this baby? Or get a separate line for the occasional use? Who would do that?
  5. I think the pic misleadingly implies you can use it indoors.
  6. Yes, that's it. Would really love to see someone try and plate that spaghettis w them as shown in pic 5. But, really, the burger, it's like "Attn, dumb Americans, since burgers are about the only thing you can make now you don't have to worry about dropping them the 1' or 2' from the skillet to the plate, as you very often do!" You're welcome!
  7. Yes, I think. I tried them once and couldn't grab anything. The amazon ad shows them being used to pick up a burger. Apparently the spatula will be a thing of the past. ðŸĪŠ
  8. I was given these 'catch all' tongs (apparently the latest must have per boss). Can't for the life of me find a reason to use them. Storage too is challenging since they're one piece and can't slide an arm down the side of the utensil jar like the normal tongs. (Up for re-gifting)
  9. I tried the Nashville and Philly and let me tell you they're really reaching with these names. The Nashville was like a subtle bbq w an overlay of old bay and a burnt aftertaste. The Philly had a sour cream & onion profile finished w a cheese-doodle like dusting. Both pretty bad w too many ingredients. Neither addictive. It's been a while since I had them and I don't know if they even make them anymore but these were the last chips that I truly fell in love with:
  10. I hear you. We are spoiled here w our 'ethnic' options. Milan sounds like Paris where we noticed an onslaught of chinese/thai/vietnamese/cafe takeouts specializing in cold pret a manger. What we tried was pretty bad but the french seemed to be going nuts for it. They were always busy. @weinoo what do you think? You were there just before covid like us?
  11. It brings a chuckle when I read you live in Milan and there's no good pita or bread substitute. ðŸ˜ļ
  12. Ahh, missed that. No chance they can get soggy, nice move. You're a nut to the masses but to be commended here, bravo! 👏
  13. Where do we begin with this? Agree on the spoons, apples, not mangoes - perfect cold, pineapple too. Ketchup on fries is the top condi. Off the shelf it has to be heinz or I might go naked. Agree on deconstructed falafels. The breading makes the pita redundant. Dry cereal ok. Would try cornflakes and peanut butter (esp if I was stoned) but could maybe use a savory or sweet extra. Hmm, I'm not sure which is your greatest crime, the freezer burnt ice cream or the oxidized wine? ðŸĪŠ
  14. Yes! toasted w cream cheese or butter! Ain't nuttin wrong wit dat!
  15. Oui, except salad was often the final course in our crib. Nous Bourgeois didn't have cheese and desert every night comme vous les aristocrates ðŸĨ‚
  16. If by civil you mean healthier I agree. The acid and roughage play digestive moving those blocks of cheese, meat and assorted saturated fats along. I don't know if salad (at the end) was ever proven beneficial but based on my experience I know it was/is. As well, just knowing it was coming inspired us to leave room and eat a bit less of the heavier mains.
  17. I grew up w salad after mains. I thought it was just a European custom.
  18. Hmm, too many to list. Off the top of my head, for junk, staple stuff, I won't accept anything other than whole milk and sugar in my coffee. No half n half, 2%, low-fat, creamers or other sweeteners. I'd rather be tired all day. I can't eat a burger w out some sort of veg - let, tom, pickle, onion, something, or I pass. Hot dogs I must have a bite of each end first. In multi ingredient dishes like pasta I work hard to pack every ingredient on the fork for every bite or max enjoyment can't be reached. (Those who eat 1 section at a time as reported above, really
  19. @FeChef maybe it's the aroma? When you combine the mixture (rice vngr, salt, sugar?) it can be strong and linger a bit. Maybe affects your pallet? Our little girls don't like it so I make it away from them to avoid an "eeew what's that gross smell?". Other than that I don't get the aversion. Done well, it's delicious on it's own. 😋
  20. I meant just a couple times a year! haha. Just having something planned, to look frwd to, does wonders for the psyche esp for us non-jet setters. 😁
  21. Damn, I wish I had a good butcher relationship story. I guess there's still time. 🔊🔊🔊
  22. I think so many are feeling this to some degree. My little set of reasons (many already mentioned): 1. Many forced to stock up per covid. A lot of the same ingredients. Since we don't waste food we feel forced to use them in 50 ways before stocking up yet again w more then we typically need. Depressing. 2. Folks had a nice mix of cooking and eating out w allowed a mental and physical break (esp for those w ailments). Also eating out inspired home cooking. 3. The shit storm of horrible world events, politics, being locked up and a big one for me, not bein

    Dinner 2020

    Thanks all! I figured most were off phones. I need a new one if only for better pics 😁
  24. Host's note: this post and the next few responses were split from the Dinner topic. Nice pics above! Are folks using their phones or 'real' cameras - DSL, point and shoot, other?
  25. Well produced! Nice visuals and moves at a good pace holding one's interest.
