    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    @Anna N It has been eons but I once used Spam successfully while at a vacation rental with hungry males. The stovetop was iffy and the oven a joke so the BBQ grill was my cooking area. I picked up a can and sliced and grilled it for breakfast. It rendered fat and got nicely sorta crispy on the edges. Now I am almost thinking of picking up a can. They have low salt and other versions now!

    Ah ok so I vote for the light wash. "Espresso candied kumquat" certainly intrigues Did you play with that flavor combo at the Curious Kumquat?

    Assuming ones on the right are the lighter wash. I must admit that although the pattern is more defined, the glossier splotchier ones on the left appeal more. I think because that is what I am accustomed to. What fillings this time?
  6. David Lebovitz's blog ost this week about "The Gourmands' Way" intrigued me. Any comments if you've read it? https://www.amazon.com/Gourmands-Way-Americans-Paris-Gastronomy/dp/0374103151/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=davidleboviswebs&linkId=a86328c34acc356e37107718147e4c4a&language=en_US https://www.davidlebovitz.com/plum-flaugnarde-clafoutis-custard-french-prune/

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I picked up some Tony Chachere Cajun seasoning a while back at the dollar store and found it not overly salty yet flavorful. https://www.target.com/p/tony-chachere-s-174-creole-seasoning-8oz/-/A-15225940?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google_pla_df&CPNG=PLA_Grocery+Essentials+Shopping&adgroup=SC_Grocery&LID=700000001170770pgs&network=g&device=c&location=9031078&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3o_jspO33QIVj8DACh1UEQgNEAQYASABEgKvDfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Breakfast! 2018

    @blue_dolphin We think you can't keep using the generic toast term as your bread is so key. More details please
  9. Is it perhaps the cooking method with paella having the wide open pan, crispy bottom that evokes a Persian Tahdig and the Arroz more pilaf style?

    Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    I was going to say my idea of Japanese potato salad (via Hawaii) has ham and is creamier. My friend from Yokohama apologied when she served it thinking I was wedded to "American style". She soon learned I was culturally omnivorous

    When I see that (word escapes me) bloom? white? on the grapes I anticipate good flavor. Great stuff y'all are posting from your trip.

    Yes all enticing and now I just did a head thump as to what I needed from the Persian market which we failed to stop at - pom molasses!
