  1. Sadly this year may be more like Dia de Los Muertes I do like the tradition. Very big here in Los Angeles.
  2. ? the decision making, the option selection, or the freakin lockdown in Los Angeles (needed) we have again? Don't know how to do the Spanish inverted question mark to open a question. Always loved that.
  3. Another thing I have noticed in myself is anticipatory decision making, Do I pay more for a lesser amount from the place I get food delivery or do I wait until I can get to a place with decent Asian markets. Screwed myself not getting Huy Fong chili garlic sauce thinking I had some in pantry.- nope! At least I did not do it with fish sauce. Caved to the Thai Kitchen stuff - oh well - one adapts. We are in lockdown again so who knows.
  4. @Kim Shook The beginning of your everlasting cucumber bowl? Like this https://forums.egullet.org/topic/105832-its-cucumber-time-ideas/?do=findComment&comment=1579190
  5. So was the hominy pr-treated in some way or just straight outa can or boiled? I love the stuff but never considered it in a salad type prep. Oh and I have quail envy!
  6. Ack artificial strawbery favoring makes me gag probably cuz son had a bit of an allergy to it as a child (not pretty). To me Halloween is nostalgia so I prefer the standards if indulging. I do like the trend in last (well many) years to the snack or mini versions of standards. I'm thinkin this year will be very very different

    Lunch 2020

    Thse egg rolls look plump and nicely fried. With that sauce I always feel the need to add a touch of vinegar. You?
  8. @Shelby @robirdstx I imagine the panic driven hoarding and empty shelves are a response to the intense up-tick in cases.

    Dinner 2020

    Yes between spring rolls and burritos the rolling is in my neural pathway.
  10. I was just thinkin if you did not want to over indulge yet satisfy an itch
  11. I find that if people are not green bell pepper fans that jalapenos don't st well either. Chemistry at work. At some point ya feed the compost

    I am fairly flexible (stop laughing y'all) but never considered squid as the seafood. On of my favorite seafoods. Thanks for that. As to rolling technique - yours look really good.
  13. They must be really small to be edible - before the afore noted bristles emerge. So much is edible that we do not use. There are lots of sites and books. Linda Ly has a new one https://www.gardenbetty.com/the-no-waste-vegetable-cookbook/
  14. Right - often the "lower calorie" latke alternative as well.

    And if so how finely chopped? People use raw on those crudite platters with dip at parties but .
