  1. Shelby, you are such an instigator!... I downloaded my copy onto my NOOK Tuesday night. ( I found my $150 stash of B&N cards i'd been given as gifts. So I spent some wisely!)
  2. I also like the shrimp chips, although until gullet I had never seen them in their natural color. When I was growing up in the south, there was a Chinese girl in my class and we both took piano lessons from the same teacher. Each spring at our end of year recital the moms were responsible for providing the sweets buffet for all the students, parents and guests ,practically the entire county and surrounding counties were invited. This particular girl's mom always made shrimp chips, and they were the loveliest pastel colors. She always fried enough to fill 2 flats such as a case of beer came on that she had wrapped in foil and lined with paper towels. Most people were put off them by the name alone, and the color I suppose, but I found them to be so exotic that at the end of the evening the mom always sent an entire box of them home with us as we seemed to be the only ones that enjoyed them. Sorry, and I hope I didn't hijack the thread, but every time I see you have these it brings back fond memories..
  3. That is an amazing amount of work, and what riches you have to squirrel for the winter months. IIRC someone here, perhaps Shelby made tomato salt last year ??
  4. Those are some pretty anemic looking pork rinds. Everything else looks tasty!

  6. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Dayum Kim, I can't even begin to tell you how good all that food looks. That charred skin on the chicken is calling to me!! And your burnt ends lunch at home, oh wow!
  7. Seafood stock help

    I remember years ago reading the ingredient packet for shrimp ramen noodles and seeing that it had ground shrimp shells. Many times over the years I've thought about drying the shells and running them thru a spice grinder. Anyone ever tried this? could be a nice flavoring for any real seafood dish.
  8. Oreo Cookies

    Found 2 new ones last week. the blueberry pie ones I didn't buy, but I did get the salted caramel thins, and they were really good.
  9. Hospital Time

  10. Cooking with Ottolenghi's "Plenty"

    How about some Morbier?
  11. The 2 yellow cans with the cows on label appear to be evaporated milk...and that's all I've got!
  12. Hospital Time

    I imagine the shitake helped. I buy large bags and run thru the spice grinder...use a bit of the resulting powder in soups, stews any braised meats, etc . hope you are on the mend!
  13. Shelby, I like the textural look of those everything bagels...Nice crunchy hills and valleys to hold the seasonings...that's a good thing!!
