  1. What if there is a pea in there?
  2. RFID tags and an Arduino reader?
  3. I hope they have a way to include the delivery tip when you call in your order. Not that that is an issue in sane countries. Personally I think take-out is an appropriate risk-benefit balance. But then, I still go out for my coffee in the morning.

    Lunch 2020

    Kraft Dinner/Mac&Cheese/Mac&Sleeze and Saag Paneer makes a pretty tasty lunch
  5. We sometimes throw a couple of splashes of red wine into jar spag sauce. There are lot's of ways to doctor it up. Add spinach, basil, lots more garlic, capers... If you are stuck inside, experimenting is a good way to combat boredom.

    But Coles and Woolies will take delivery orders - at least where I live. Seems to be pretty popular since I'm always having to dodge employees, picking orders.

    Maybe if it comes cooked
  9. The virus causing COVID-19 is affecting the supply chain and food buying habits as people prepare to hunker down. Are you laying in a supply of chicken soup? Have you seen shortages due to the pandemic? Apparently Rancho Gordo has become popular with viral preppers. Unfortunately not an option for me so I will have to make do with standard dried and canned beans.
  10. A light and simple drink 1:1 Aperol & Noilly Prat. Splash of soda. Build on ice.

    No photo of the results, sorry. Made my 1 pot pressure cooker chicken chili. Cut a chook in half so it submerges better, add water, pressure cook high for 20 minutes then crash-cool. Fish the chicken out, add great northern beans (edit: 350 ml 1 1/2 cups for half a compact free range chook) and about a tablespoon of pickled bird's eye chiles (cus they are plenty hot and I'll never use up the ones I preserved a couple of years ago). Pressure cook high for 30 min. While the beans are cooking shred the chicken meat. Let the beans depressurize naturally then drain off the excess broth into another pot. Add chicken, salt, and some green salsa. Simmer until beans are done, adding broth as needed then simmer until most of the liquid is gone. As we say in my country, "Too easy."
  12. Panda Hangover. Band name.

    That brings back memories of a family trip to Mexico when I was a kid. My father loved to fish and caught some Spanish mackerel which he marched into the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant to be cooked up. I thought it was a very odd thing to do but the results were excellent.

    I've had some pretty horrible tasting capers, but of course can't remember which brands are best. My partner doesn't care for them too much. At our farmer's market a stall was selling capers and also dried, ground caper berries so I could disguise them by coating salmon in the ground capers and broiling. Turned out really well, IMO.
  15. If I had thought of it before grocery shopping, maybe I would have planned latkes. As it is, maybe I'll just have some of the hot-cross buns that I have been pretending aren't for sale yet, since they appeared right after Christmas, and watch the Sydney LGBTQ parade on the TV. That's a huge deal in Australia, with all of the stations competing for viewers. Don't think we are in Kansas anymore, Toto.🙂
  16. I don't know if it is the same elsewhere, but it is common to find herbs in grocery stores here for sale in little seedling pots. Our little Asian fruit and veg store just reopened after the owner was stuck in self-quarantine for 2 weeks after 2 weeks in China 😥 so I was eager to help get his cash flow going and bought a pot of red shiso. I was inspired by a friend who grows the green in Indiana USA so I reckon it could survive our weather if I can keep enough water on it. I divided it into 3 pots, before finding this thread so we shall see if it makes it. I do miss the heyday of the Japan forum. So much great information here.

    When I was working one autumn in Nova Scotia, the poached salmon was the best. And all the locals said that the conservation officer got his job a) because he could hold his own when he got into scraps at the Saturday dances with people he had caught, and b) because giving him the job got rid of the worst poacher in the area.
  18. My closest Aldi had Aperol for $15, which is a very good price for Australia. Not that I drink much of it but I grabbed the lone bottle left.

    Needs Kimchi! 😄
  20. I'm thinking of seeing how they do as a ground cover out front. I have an unused raised bed, too.
  21. My warrigal greens are going to town. I need to move them to a bigger pot or take some cuttings. These are an Australian & New Zealand native. They have cool little yellow flowers that grow from the base of the leaves. I've only cooked with them once and they seemed pretty tasty. You are supposed to blanch them to remove the oxalate.

    Looks great. I would love to visit Loretto, a friend has a kayak touring business there. The marine park is a treasure.

    The meat was cooked on the gas cooktop in the unglazed terracotta pot. The tortillas were warmed in the terracotta warmer. I got the cloth damp, put a stack of tortillas on top, wrapped the corners of the cloth around the stack, and microwaved for 2 minutes. The bottom one ends up a little bit too soggy but no fuss. I have soaked the warmer in water first, instead of using the cloth but that's a bit too much effort for me. The plates were purchased. They have a copper-red and other glazes.

    Lamb carnitas cooked in a clay pot with black beans, avocado, lime and corn tortillas. There's a place in Melbourne that makes the best corn tortillas I've ever had.
