    Breakfast 2021

    Prune hamentashen...store bought, but from a local supplier and not bad. If only they had a little more flavor (vanilla) in the dough part...lost one corner in transit
  2. I appreciate when a blogger (usually the more professional ones vs the hobbiests) have the “jump to recipe” link to avoid the backstory and excessive explanation.

    Dinner 2021

    A cookathon day, doing some meal prep...roasted a couple of split chicken breasts (simple salt/pepper/onion powder/paprika rub), baked tofu squares brushed with “vegetarian oyster sauce” from Wegmans (just a mushroomy umami flavor). For dinner we had turkey meatballs that bake in a vinegary sauce (threw some carrots in at the halfway point) and kale salad.

    Dinner 2021

    Made the veg for dinner this afternoon so it can mellow...Turkish style braised green beans.
  5. Similarly...I occasionally eat canned sardines (which my Grandfather did) but it horrifies my husband, so only when he's not home. There's plenty of traditional Jewish cuisine (see: Gefilte fish as mentioned above) that I won't eat, but I am not an outcast for turning it down, just guilted so much for "not even taking a taste" that it feels like being cast out😆

    Lunch 2021

    Using up more leftovers...green lentils, some grape tomatoes that were going soft, oil packed tuna. Black pepper, sherry vinegar, dash of TJ’s umami seasoning.

    Dinner 2021

    Truly a clean out dinner. Had a couple of eggplants from last week that needed to be used (one turned out to be bad, as it happened). Made a vegetarian sort of moussaka casserole with one eggplant and lentils, but instead of bechemel (lazy) I drizzled some heavy cream (fridge leftover) over the eggplant layers and scattered crumbled feta over. Worked fine (tastewise), if a bit looser than it should have been. From the freezer, a pack of vegan fish cakes (Thai flavor) which were pan fried. They did get fish flake texture, it was interesting but I probably won’t buy them again.
  8. If you simmer the soup with a cut up potato, the potato will absorb some of the spice (you remove the potato once jts done).

    Easter Candy

    The Easter candy was on the shelves right next to the Valentines candy this past weekend...sheesh. Let us breathe between marketing opportunities/holidays.
  10. Its not isolated to these market delivery services. I ordered some cookies from someone on Etsy, who was based in NY, specifically because I figured with the cold temps it was no issue. She put a freezer pack in the box. Her shipping info said nothing about freezer packs or I would have told her to skip it. The box sat on my driveway for a bit (because our worthless mail carrier couldn’t be bothered to walk 3 more feet to put it on the front porch where I would have seen it). Frozen cookies. On the plus side, another freezer pack that can be re-used.
  11. Regarding Grape Nuts, they were fully stocked at Wegmans last night, both Post brand and the “house” brand.

    Dinner 2021

    Had some black beans leftover from last nights nachos, so Brazilian black bean stew. It included yams and was supposed to get diced mango stirred in before serving. Didn’t have any, so sub’d chopped orange, which worked. Plenty leftover for lunch tomorrow.

    Dinner 2021

    Dinner was take out because the tuna I took out for dinner didn’t defrost. Pizza (pretty good) and a pasta (not good). However they also gave us 2 slices as a bonus (veggie) because they had extras, so DH has lunch for tomorrow (as the pasta leftovers were binned). I guess the net result was positive.
