  1. Yum! Love red cabbage! We had leftover red cabbage yesterday. No apples this time because I'd forgotten to get one. I use way more vinegar, some sugar, and veg/chicken stock. I like the idea of adding mustard, never thought to try it. If you have some beets lying around, throw those in there. Gorgeous colour!

    Valentine's Day Dinner

    Right?!! Usually we'll order pizza or fried chicken and put on a movie, but spouse has a course that day till late. So dinner for me will be a couple glasses of wine or cocktails (or - let's be honest - both!). If I can get some decent liver, maybe liver & onions. He hates liver.
  3. Mustard and mayo. Or if I'm feeling fancy, Japanese-style - tonkatsu sauce, kewpie mayo, dried bonito flakes, nori, green onions.
  4. Fish sauce chicken! Lime juice, cilantro, fish sauce, chilis or chili paste, sugar, tamarind if you have it. Slather it all over and pop it in the oven. Glaze with extra sauce/marinade. One of my go-to dinners. I don't put ginger in it, but I don't see why you can't. Or stir fry with bok choy & garlic for a veg side. Plus rice.
  5. I love this topic! One of my Super Bowl snacks was a complete disaster. I never thought I'd complain about brie being too melty..... I made brie & cranberry baked in wonton wrappers. All the brie leaked out, the wrappers didn't get brown enough, just a big greasy mess. Ugh....good thing I had back-up cheese for a cheese plate.

    Superbowl food 2020

    Doing a taco bar this year. Making carnitas and a bean/squash veg option, with all the usual things that go with it - pineapple salsa, guacamole, cheese, etc. Also making sweet & spicy wings, skordalia (hubby's request - weird, I know), brie baked wonton, and rice krispies treats. I hope the avocados ripen in time. No horse in this race again, but nominally rooting for San Francisco, because of the whole west coast thing....
  7. I've recently been introduced to the magic that is Hot Buttered Rum. So good, though a bit on the filling side. 😋
  8. Onion confit. I'd browsed the forums a bit, but joined as a member because of this onion confit thread. First time I made it in my slow cooker, it perfumed my apartment for nearly a week. I thought the smell was divine. Drove my husband bonkers! Time to make onion confit again - but in my InstantPot (purchased also because of EG)!
  9. Must have currants or raisins. No pecans, chocolate, cranberries, orange peel or any of that rubbish. I admit I like making them as squares, mainly because I don't have patience to fiddle with a bunch of individual tart shells. Extra generous with the currants, though.
  10. I bought a ThermoPen digital meat thermometer and "The Food of Taiwan: Recipes from the Beautiful Island". I used a Prime Day $10 coupon for the book. I wanted Fuschia Dunlop's "Land of Fish & Rice" but it wasn't eligible for the coupon, sadly.
  11. Oooh! Great idea - made in Canada, too! Putting it in my cart now.
  12. Beer Caesar! Caesar (aka. the only Bloody Mary worth drinking) topped with lager. Radler - grapefruit juice & lager In Berlin I had a weissbier with cherry syrup - very refreshing.
  13. Orange flavoured chocolate. I like oranges, I like chocolate, I even like candied orange peel dipped in dark chocolate. But I loathe & despise orange chocolate, and any desserts with chocolate and orange. Gaaak!!
  14. There's only one way to find out! Looking forward to your results. Personally, I don't think raspberry leaf tastes anything like black tea. But I've always found rooibos tastes a lot like Ceylon orange pekoe with a bit of honey, and it's easy to come by.
  15. Still deciding the menu, but right now it's looking like I'm doing cubano sliders, baked chicken wings, crispy brussels sprouts, either shrimp cocktail or smoked salmon platter, cheese/charcut platter. Still need a couple non-meat dips. Deciding between a hot spinach dip or classic spinach in a bread bowl. A few other things maybe, not sure what, but it should be non-meat. It's a bigger group this year, 14 bodies in our small apartment, hope we can squeeze everyone in. We'll need more food this year (despite husband's protests - Superbowl is about the food as much as it's about the football), so is it better to do more quantity or more variety?? Can't decide on chicken wings flavour. My go-to is sweet-spicy, but I want to do Thai chili brussels sprouts. Is that too much sweet-spicy food? Go Rams!
