    Lunch 2019

    The "Whole Shebang" from Matt's BBQ. Pulled pork underneath the brisket. I had a LOONNNGGG nap afterwards.
  2. On a similar vein, here are some articles regarding Chef Gabriel Rucker (from Le Pigeon in Portland Oregon) getting sober: https://www.bonappetit.com/story/chef-gabriel-rucker-finally-got-healthy https://www.foodandwine.com/chefs/communal-table-leading-by-example-gabriel-rucker He has gone on to host an AA for food industry here in Portland, and documents some of his exercises on instagram (fitchefpdx)

    Dinner 2019

    Do you recall what it tasted like? There are several types that I am aware of. Might have been curry fried rice, made with powdered curry to give a vibrant yellow. There is also just rice made with chicken bouillon instead of chicken broth (like for Hainanese chicken), that can give a yellowish tinge as well. There is a similar dish in Vietnam, Hoi An Chicken, where the rice is colored with tumeric.

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    First attempt at no knead focaccia. Small holes, cakey texture, but it's bread!!!! Dog and I are happy.

    Breakfast 2019

    Inspired by a hot brown, while trying to eat healthy and get my protein in. Slice of turkey, sauteed spinach, broiled tomatoes, cheddar, and a soft boiled egg. Followed by a matcha protein shake...

    Super Bowl 2019 what's on your menu?

    Our local bakery does something similar. They call it a Debbie bar. They add potato chips on top and drizzle caramel over the whole shebang.

    Breakfast 2019

    What ratio do you use? I typically use about half a cup of fluid per egg, but it is by no means perfect. This seems to be the same ratio that Serious Eats uses: https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2009/11/seriously-asian-chawan-mushi.html

    Happy Birthday Jacques Pepin

    He still looks amazing https://www.instagram.com/jacquespepinfoundation/
  14. Is this the same recipe? https://cooklikeachampion.com/2011/03/creamy-caramel-sauce/
  15. Not a straight caramel sauce, but I have done Alton Brown's Dulce de Leche recipe numerous times with great success. https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/dulce-de-leche-recipe-1948282 For added lusciousness, I would add in some chocolate at the end to melt in.
