  1. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    Rainy, somewhat cool Sunday with no interest in getting too fancy. Seemed like a good day for a Cincinnati 3-way... With apologies to anybody picturing something entirely different and not, presumably, involving a plate. I actually made the Cincinnati style chili yesterday with today's weather forecast in mind.
  2. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    I had black forest ham and Swiss cheese with horseradish mustard on garlic naan (not homemade). Still not particularly adventurous but outside of my usual breakfast fare.
  3. I like burgers cooked that way. I usually dice the onions when I do it but that doesn't make much difference in the result, just personal preference. I've done it with a mixture of chopped onions and chopped pickled jalapenos too.
  4. I keep things cleaned as I go at work. I try to at home... but there are those days when it ends up being "clean when I get around to it". But knowing I have to clean up my mess has taught me to not make too much mess in the first place.
  5. We agree on the figs but I think we have slightly different views on the dates. I just like figs better, I don't dislike dates.
  6. Is there an optimal ratio... or am I overthinking it?
  7. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    My English muffin (not homemade) with butter and cherry jam that I had for breakfast seems positively boring compared to what everybody else is eating... but I enjoyed it.
  8. Current (and usual) price for avocados where I live is $2.99 each. They were on sale last week for $1.99 each so I grabbed a few for the guacamole I'm making today. The cheapest I've ever seen them here was 3 for $4 and I've seen that exactly once.
  9. Rhum Agricole: The Topic

    With help from a friend, I got a bottle of the Saint James Royal Ambre we discussed above. And to my complete surprise and delight, when I opened the box, there was also a bottle of Rhum JM agricole blanc... which is not available through the LCBO. Through great generosity, I've gone from rags to riches with agricole.
  10. Great idea! Not only does it serve as a notebook for those who attend the classes, it's also really nice for those of us unable to attend. I'm not really free to travel at this point in life... but I'm always happy to learn something new (or new to me, which is a big category).
  11. I have a love/hate relationship with Brazilian steakhouses. Lots of tasty meat delivered to your plate as often as you desire. Sounds perfect until you add in my complete inability to say "no thanks, I've had enough" when they come to the table... so I end up eating entirely too much and become pretty much useless for the remainder of the evening.
  12. That chicken sounds really good. Load it up with the extra hot sauce and park a nice, cold beer next to it...
  13. Sauce Pika Gorri

    Never heard of it. I'm sure I'm nowhere close to what it would actually be used for but it sounds like it would be tasty with venison.
  14. If you really want to see a relic from another time, I've never owned (or wanted to own) a cell phone of any type. Just call me Captain Caveman...
  15. Logical guess but you may want to read through the other replies. The mystery was solved and... it definitely wasn't blueberries.
