  1. Coconut lover here as well. Married to a Panamanian I was making my own milk from fresh cocos in the '70s. Curious if it uses some toasted coconut for accent or just all milk?

    Agreed on the monkfish. I would only buy it from a fish shop way out of my way but with excellent always fresh product. Best lobster prices in town also. We won't talk about the time I scaled a big snapper on the coffee table. Pretty scales that looked like shiny tiddly-winks for months...

    @Norm Matthews I think my stepmother has your same placemats. Drive me nuts, but everythng does.
  4. I use it all the time in rubs and to make a dip for egg rolls, spring rolls, dumplings an similar. I sprinkle it in soups where it makes sense, or in a tadka (I know it uses the whole spice but works for me). And any application where you want the mustard I use it when whole seeds are not in pantry..
  5. My Los Angeles climate is dry dry dry so maybe the difference or as I told someone here - a piece of cardboard under the big kid can prevent that rot spot.

    Nice food. At least the aluminum disposable pans are being used. I know not environmentally wonderful but SO handy.. I give them a quick rinse and store in freezer for re-use unless punctured. I love cooking but hate cleaning
  7. Yes that is a sexy purple pepper. On the ginormous zuke - I've said before - sometimes I just let a few go, harden like a winter squash and use as Fall/Halloween decor. Martha hollows it out from one end and uses a dremel tool to create holes so candles inserted can glow through. Or like this
  8. I had a vine in my yard once. You could HEAR the caterpillars munching as walked to mailbox! That loud and aggressive.

    I will take one of those over a beef one any day
  11. We have the vines like weeds here (a Gulf Fritillary attractant) but the truly worthy ones are a different type. Best I ever had were from a swap meet in Ventura. The scent was super intoxicating on the drive home. Giant bag for nothin in money. https://www.butterfliesathome.com/gulf-fritillary-butterfly.htm#:~:text=Nectar and Host Plants Used,Passion Vine and Passion Flower.
  12. So a user friendly car eating kit is on deck? I mean what ya keep in the car. I read it somewhere in a Marlena de Blasi book.
  13. Check the gardening topic or Margaret The link is to a tomato discussion also links to good sites https://awaytogarden.com/late-blight-and-tomato-diseases-with-dr-meg-mcgrath/
  14. Wow kudos. A LOT of thought put into it and clear enough to engage people. Best of luck!

    Oh there is a phrase "to eat neatly is not to eat well at all" Your shrimp is quite appealing. Not a GRITS girl
