  1. Oddly, it's a thing in Japan, and you see apple in premade curry rouxs. Based on a popular book claiming an apple and honey attributed to Vermont.

    How do you decide what to cook

    Thank you! I sometimes think that I overplan, but it works for me. I need to work more on pre-making dinners, I've wanted to get back in to doing that. They'd come in handy when I have things on my schedule for after work. I know about over abundances of veggies too- it's both a frustrating and delightful place to be.

    How do you decide what to cook

    I see things on websites (I follow updates on multiple food pages through Facebook, setting the pages so that I get notifications for every update) and in magazines and cookbooks that seem interesting, or my wife finds things or has cravings and tells me, or I find inspiration when dining out, or see something interesting at the local food co-ops or greengrocer, and I type them all in to a note in Evernote. At the beginning of the week I look through the note and decide what I want. Since I live about three minutes' drive from where I shop for my food, and said places are on my way to and from work anyway, I just shop for each day's meal that day.

    Ratatouille--Cook-Off 42

    I rather like taking the Keller recipe but incorporating the piperade from the Weapons Grade Ratatouille recipe. That's become my default approach.
