  1. Have to laugh at the Sunbeam Mixmaster booklet; I don't have one BUT I do have the mixer. It was my Nana's and she gave it to me when she bought a new one. It is such a workhorse it makes the Energizer Bunny look lazy. I fully expect it to last long enough to pass on to one of our daughters.
  2. Happy Birthday Shelby. My birthday was in March and I "celebrated" by treating myself to a large Amazon order of food related books and toys. Christmas may be much the same.
  3. But you must realize that, if Kerry is involved, it will be chocolate gravy. Not that there's anything wrong with that!
  4. That hit home. The best tacos al pastor we had in Mexico was in Mazatlan. The place was a scooter rental by day and became a restaurant at night. They even had grandma out front making tortillas. If that wasn't enough to lure you in, the smells would for sure. Thanks for reminding me of that!
  5. I guess I would have to see your check list or more details on how you came to your conclusions. By your standards, I live in The Land of Meh! Strange as it may seem, we actually eat pretty well. Granted, local stores lack many of the exotic ingredients that you may find essential but they are more interested in pleasing local repeat customers than someone who comes in once! My family has traveled over much of the country and finding local treasures is part of the fun. Never felt that I was one to judge what a grocery store in Northern Minnesota or Southern Florida should stock. My "meh"
  6. Many years ago there was a small Mexican restaurant in a near-by town that had the best tacos al pastor outside of Mexico we've ever had. The place closed and I did everything in my power to track down that table model vertical spit. Funny, but all of a sudden my limited Spanish was no longer understood where it had been a month before! To this day it hasn't showed up at another restaurant in the area so is must have been whisked out out of town in the middle of the night. I have had one on my Amazon Wish List for many, many years!
  7. Now stick a skewer in each half, roll them both in melted chocolate and than in crushed nuts. Freeze and enjoy. By far the best way to eat a banana.😄
  8. Back in the 80's the Thousand Oaks, CA hospital had clam chowder every Friday that was world class. It got to be "a thing" to meet for lunch at the hospital. Loved seeing all "the suits" lined up. A very different type of a soup line. I was never a patient there so can't comment on the rest of the menu but I suspect it was pretty decent.
  9. I've only had Shishito peppers once and that required a 125 mile one way trip to my nearest Trader Jo's. They have grown into something epic in my memory!
  10. The checks all the boxes for me.
  11. That is the perfect definition of a "good mother"-never caught in the act and always looking like an angel. I was never able to quite pull it off. My horns kept knocking my halo off center.

    Lunch 2020

    I hope the "leek" in your soup wasn't caused by that cute monkey!
  13. A sweet tooth is not enough to eat one of those things. It requires a mouth full of sweet teeth to get one down!

    Dinner 2020

    And "hard shelled" too at times I suspect😉
  15. For those of you who have access to Trader Joe's tamales, how to they stack up? We were planning to make the 125 mile trek to the nearest store and tamales were high on my list. That was before all the Covid crap hit the fan.
