  1. As close to laughing gulls as you can get ..... these are too close to home for folks who have places down the shore.
  2. when we lived in east Texas I saw more dead armadillos than live. I believe it was about 90 to 1..... up in this area of NJ or in the mid-Hudson Valley you have several options ..... keep the meat for yourself offer it to a food bank offer it in winter to the state to feed raptors.
  3. Oh, geez!!!! .50 US per pound. Thwy did pay for our new shoes in the fall. Unfortunately this year the harvest started out good but the scaps were wiped out in a week or so .....
  4. Go over the drawbridge from Diamond Beach into Cape May across Mud Hen Gut and there is the Snow's /Doxsee processing plant. I have opened more than my share of scallops growing up as well as clams and oysters.....
  5. WOW! I buy the small sleeves and can only manage 5 at a time.
  6. 5 Ritz crackers - 3 with a garlic and herb cheese, one of those with red pepper jelly, 2 with pepper jack topped with some of that red pepper jelly.
  7. I had to laugh.... we are currently documenting a very, VERY friendly ruffed grouse. Like this bird will walk up to you and want to have a conversation. He's too sweet to dispatch.
  8. My usual Shoprite usually has duck in various incarnations - whole, breasts, legs as well as frozen rabbit. I'd hit up Quattro's in Pleasant Valley NY for the other things.
  9. Half a state north and the trees are confused.... forsythia bloomed in March, the shad bush bloomed the last two weeks, any other deciduous trees - which usually would have leafed out by mid April - are barely in bud. I dread when they do bloom!!!!
  10. Two well written books on the subject in both the US and Canada are: The Fortune Cookie Chronicles by Jennifer 8 Lee Chop Suey Nation by Ann Hui and who knew there was a Cantonese restaurant on Fogo Island?
  11. Welcome. In the cooking section there are also the eGullet cooking classes. What skills do you have already? Is there anything you are looking to learn to do? Ask questions.....
  12. You're welcom. Here's to your library opening up soon.
  13. Mix it all together, add some minced onion and red bell pepper and you have eggy potatoes.

    Lunch 2020

    You could have shipped them up to me - had to go buy a bag for Johhnybird as he has discovered he prefers them to lemon juice in his amaretto sour.
  15. 1/2 a BLT on toasted white bread with some Miracle Whip. The other half is going with us for John's lunch as we check a bluebird trail for nesting birds. Made John gluten-free pancakes for his blueberries and maple syrup.

    Dinner 2020

    All prepped for John's dinner when we get home from the field(checking bluebird boxes for activity). Julienned red peppers, carrots, water chestnuts and onions. Lo mein sauce (Rachael Ray recipe that is quite good and not too spicy for John). Lo mein noodles. Sauteed shrimp to go on John's; vegetarian for me.
  17. @Smithy, cleaning out my mailbox came acrossa title you might want to check out for next season; The Outdoor Kitchen:Live-Fire Cooking from the Grillby Eric Werner and Nils Bernstein.

    Dinner 2020

    You are thinking of a garbage plate I believe. Fried potatoes, macaroni salad, meat of some sort - beef, hotdogs or even fried fish.
  22. I have a recipe for pumpkin olive oil bread if you have light olive oil. Oh, yeah and one for pumpkin chocolate chip bread we used to make at the bakery. Just sayin'.
  23. can my husband come and live with them? Here is his request for dinners …. pasta and shrimp, shrimp and pasta, pasta, pasta, pasta, shrimp and pasta...….

    Dinner 2020

    Couple of nights ago, influenced by some folks here, John brought me some canned green beans. I had made mashed potatoes to go with the leftover meatloaf for his dinner. I cooked them low and slow with a little veg stock, garlic and butter. Closest I have had to the beans I remember from down at Luby's Cafeteria in Hooks, TX. HIS: meatloaf, beans and mashed potatoes HERS: beans and mashed potatoes reinforced with some garlic and herb cheese and a scoupson of French onion dip.
  25. The last few days it has been a pint of water, a small yoghurt with some tinned fruit (all of my mandarin oranges have been sacrificed for juice for Johnnybird's Amaretto sours - he likes the juice from them instead of lemon juice in the drink). I also scored a cranberry scone that was rich and flaky and two crumb buns that I cut into half or quarters.
