    Breakfast 2019

    @lindag...no mustard. diced red and yellow peppers, diced red onion, dressing of some Cain's mayo, Lactaid sour cream, celery salt and drained relish. I had some of the dressing left over so I used it to make John a couple of turkey sandwiches to eat as he heads for Poughkeepsie.

    Breakfast 2019

    Tuna macaroni salad...too hot and muggy here for me to eat much of anything more. Now making eggy potatoes for John.

    Lunch 2019

    Peanut butter and jam (blueberry from Rea's Farm in south Jersey) on Dave's Killer White Done Right while out checking bluebird boxes. Sometimes you just need that simple taste.
  4. Well, I have to break John's long pasta into at least 4 parts when cooking. He then takes his spoon and chops the finished product up even further. Yes, his choice of eating tool at all meals is a large spoon. In @Kim Shook vein, although it is in the manners department, I was taught to cut off only what I was going to eat. I have watched most of John's family chop up everything and mix it all together. 🤐
  5. Wednesday I had a real Ladies who Lunch experience. I had started connecting with a cousin last November on Facebook and Hotmail. We had talked about getting together for lunch somewhere... Another cousin lost her grandson tragically and I stopped at the visitation to pay my respects (I used to baby sit her son years ago). I mentioned Jane and I were going to get together for lunch and Peggy said "How about me!?!" I should mention that in our two generations we all have worked in libraries; Peggy as a business manager for a dual county library network, Jane and I are MLSs who have worked in various types of libraries. We met at a diner in Middletown, NY and had the best time. Cup of beef barley soup for me, BLT for Jane and chicken salad for Peggy. We then adjourned to Peggy's house for dessert - a trifle she had made with vanilla pudding, blueberries, strawberries, whipped cream and a yellow cake along with Italian pastries from a local place. The food was good but the time connecting after 29 years was priceless.
  6. I use them instead of croutons on my salad...
  7. Thanks @chromedome. I grew up gathering dulse and Irish moss. We dried the dulse and used it as a salt substitute when crushed up. The Irish moss we used to make blanc mange(pudding). I wonder how many uses have been lost?
  8. Pretty much ANY island (spoken as one who grew up on one … and escaped).

    Dinner 2019

    Sauteed flounder with roasted cherry tomatoes and black olives. Simple in this heat and humidity. Making some saffron rice. When cool I'll make some fried rice to use up some bits and pieces of veg from the fridge.

    Coleslaw

    Or as the late Mrs. Hansen asked my late mother-in-law ... "Why would they arrest Andres for having a cockaroach?" use your imagination of what the cockaroach was really.....

    Dinner 2019

    Right now Johnnybird's Toast Dope has no white sugar and has allspice, lemon zest and lime zest... and funnily enough some pink salt . Who knows what will show up in the next iteration?

    Dinner 2019

    Local farm stand had their own strawberries, shelling peas, broccoli and asparagus. Using the shelling peas with carrots to make … peas and carrots. Bison meatloaf and baked sweet potatoes for dinner tonight. The asparagus will be steamed to go into pasta and shrimp. Half will be roasted. I want to steam the broccoli and top it with browned butter. The strawberries look gorgeous and I think I will share them with a friend. All I need is to slice them up, add some toast dope, serve with some sour cream and top with aged balsamic for a dessert. It reminds me of my mom as her birthday was 17 June and we picked quarts and quarts of strawberries as her "birthday cake" with the family was strawberry shortcake made with Bisquick biscuits...(we did have angel food cake for Aunt Honey...she didn't like the biscuits).

    Dinner 2019

    The other half of the sandwich from lunch (toasted marble rye, ham, cheese, mustard *, miracle whip and Mr. Ron's coleslaw) and a large salad of red leaf lettuce, red onion, minced cucumber, Cashel blue cheese and a salad dressing I have been using lately. It is equal parts of Cain's mayonnaise, Lactaid sour cream, white balsamic vinegar, tarragon vinegar and minced tarragon. Just didn't do it for me so added a tablespoon of Knorr Ogorkowa z grzankami soup mix(pickle soup). Ledgewood Farm - my local place provides sushi, fresh fish, deli and for some reason they have a whole eastern European section. I love the pickle soup mix though I don't make soup with it....also sautéed an almost over the top pear in butter and some toast dope then chopped half of it up and put them into the salad. Tossed some chopped walnuts into the leftover butter and toast dope then onto a piece of parchment paper to cool.... * full explanation of the specific ones I use and why is in the LUNCH forum

    Lunch 2019

    Simple Black Forest ham and Finlandia lacey swiss on toasted(but not too dark) swirled rye with the last of Sir Kensington mustard and some Miracle Whip ... and some Mr. Ron's coleslaw between the meat and cheese. Could eat only half of the sandwich, though. I have (over my 65 years) decided what taste I like so I do tend to eat specific things....

    Breakfast 2019

    ...and John would be scraping all that "dark" off "because it can cause cancer" according to him. For him I set the toaster level at 1. The last week or so my breakfast has been a cold strawberry Glucerna I put into a pint glass and add some local strawberries I pureed. Great way for me to start off some warm mornings.
  21. well, we shall see how this goes... after my morning meeting I have to stop by Home Depot to pick up 3 bags of container soil and whatever I want to plant in the kitchen garden. out front in the half tub which gets good sun I am looking for a couple of cherry or grape tomato plants. tarragon, thyme for sure after that....
  22. Oh, expletive deleted. John found my two bag stash OK dark chocolate Oreos and now I have to share.
