    Dinner 2020

    from memory...it was 1/3 cup drained oil-packed sundried tomatoes...chopped 1 cup mayo 1 room temp box of cream cheese 1/2 tbsp sriracha 1.5 tbsp finely diced shallots salt and generous ground pepper I mixed the mayo and cheese in a small processor and folded the rest in by hand. Its best after resting overnight or at least a few hours.

  3. Interesting how the different supermarkets are restocking as the covid thing wanes. Giant is still out of their best stuff. Food Lion, a down market chain, is keeping what good meat it sells in stock. They have a house brand of vac packed meats that's cheap and good. I just loaded up on flat irons and brisket at a great price.

    I make them thinner than you would for grilling. They seem to swell a little when done SV

  6. Not too long ago I compared paper bag vs plastic for mushroom storage. Over a week, the plastic bag ones lost almost no weight and looked fine. The paper bag ones were something like 50% lighter and much much smaller.

    Smoking Meat

    Completely agree. Wet wood makes acrid smoke/steam which tastes lousy. That the advice to wet the chips persists is testimony to the lack of observation and thought of some of the experts. But there's a lot of that in cooking, isn't there?

    Great point! TT is hard to find around here too. Costco doesn't carry it and butchers want $$$ for it. Fortunately there is Wegmans and WF not too too far away

    Fear of the unknown, I think
  10. How do you store the garlic and the seeds?

    Plans changed. Tri tip has been vetoed. Smoked brisket is requested. Very well. More tri tip for me.
  12. The lettuce I planted in March just bolted and the stuff I planted 6 weeks later is right behind them. Arrgh. Is there some hormone given off by a going-to-seed plant that induces it in others?

    I'm thinking tri tip, charred corn salad, potato salad.
  14. I'm always grossed out by the guy who is served by the waiter and then salt and peppers (and tabascos) the dish lavishly without tasting it first. God forbid he'd actually taste the food.
