  1. Camping, Princess Style

    The first time I tried it, it was with the same “This is probably a really bad idea” thoughts. It’s now my go to way for rice. I cook a bunch and food saver it in 2 cup portions, takes up almost no space in the freezer, and after a few minutes in the microwave hot, fluffy rice! I cook, cool to room temp then bag it.
  2. Great backup for “no power days”. Thanks!
  3. "Beauty aids the appetite". Love it!
  4. Kicking back in Manitoulin

    While I do know the difference between an arthropod and an orthopod, my mind still takes me to a scenario where you're being injected by something more akin to a wasp or bee, especially with the butter tarts involved.
  5. Commercial flours in consumer sizes

    Uh oh! Now I'm in trouble! Thank you, you are how I want to be when (if) I grow up.
  6. Easy for you to say Ms. Lottery Winner!
  7. Amazon Prime Day - your loot ?

    Been thinking about it for a long time and then the planets aligned. Now to see if Max ( see avatar ) will fit in 8 qts vs. original 2 qt. cooker.
  8. Amazon Prime Day - your loot ?

    Instant Pot Duo80. Had Amazon gift cards. Out of pocket under $9 US.
  9. Sorry, try Sriracha Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Chips.
  10. Made this, came out great. Color me impressed! We both enjoyed the flavors, portions were generous, directions were clear and simply presented. So far I'm happy.
  11. I just received and unpacked my HelloFresh order. Very nicely packed. Produce cool, meat cold and only one casualty after riding around for 6+ hours in a UPS truck on a 100f day. The casualty was a little bunch of fresh basil, it was at the bottom of one of the produce boxes, unfortunately that put it on top of the ice pack. So, it was actually freeze damage, not what I was expecting. Dinners for Tonight , Wednesday and Thursday taken care of. I'll report back later this evening.
  12. Will have Plan B in place for the 22nd. @patris, who delivered yours FedEx or UPS? We're in the California desert. If it's delivered FedEx it should be fine, if it rides around in a big brown truck all day it's not going to be pretty.
  13. Okay, I'm in. I'll blame @patris, her description of her food rut fits me all too well, and seeing a real life example of the box content and the final dish was inspirational. Finding a Groupon for $40 off the first box, plus $20 off the second helped. I'm doing the Hello Fresh "Classic" omnivore plan 3 meals/2 person per week. First delivery is May 22nd.
