    Dinner 2020

    Chicken curry with homemade roti prata.....
  2. The leaves are not a dark green like they should be.... maybe because they just spent the last 6 days in a box, or maybe the nursery's greenhouse isn't getting enough light yet... but yes, otherwise it looks pretty good.
  3. They arrived! Most look ok, but the rau ram has seen better days. I gave them a bit of water and light and we'll see how it goes...
  4. I ordered some herb starts (and a kaffir lime plant) from Well-Sweep Herb farm - about 60 miles away from me. They shipped on Monday by the US Post Office and the package is finally arriving today!!!! 6 Days!! And they shipped it by Priority Mail!! I hope they all survived...
  5. When I have to go out here, I use the tip of a key to push elevator buttons, pin pads, etc. I also keep a small bottle of hand sanitizer with me to use immediately if I have to touch something with my hands.

    That's about the same price I'd pay when I got them... the vast majority of the cost is the shipping!!

    @Shelby those crawfish look beautiful!
  9. bone-in / skin on... I like what the broil does for the skin - makes it a bit crispier than steam bake by itself
  10. lately I do chicken thighs with a hybrid method... 425 bake steam for 12 minutes with rack on lowest position, then raise rack and 425 steam broil for an extra 7 min. perfect
  11. I wouldn't be surprised that they were there, I just haven't had a chance to go down there. And now, it won't be for teh forseeable future since I don't want to take the subway if I don't absolutely have to, mask or no.
  12. I used to go down to the Essex Market (before they moved) once in a while and I'd see the vendors selling limes 10 for $1 back then.... but I was talking specifically about Mexican Limes - or key limes... I don't know if I ever saw those there, but I've seen them in Fairway from time to time...
  13. I would also be cautious due to the reasons above, but another one as well - we still don't know exactly when things will "go back to normal" and cities/states start allowing people to go to restaurants at full capacity again. Here in NYC, restaurants are only allowed to do takeout and delivery, and there's really no idea when this will end. Many people believe that NY State won't allow restaurants to allow guests to dine in for at least a couple months yet. And once it is allowed, when will people feel comfortable enough to do so?
  14. In our neck of the woods, "cheap bags of Mexican limes" is a complete oxymoron. Relatively small bags (1 lb) is about $5

    Dinner 2020

    Tried my hand at Indian-ish tonight. This is sort of South Indian with the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Most S Indian is vegetarian, but I added some boneless chicken thigh. I made it way too soupy... Tasty but too much liquid.
  17. I imagine there should be a way to adjust the temperature display to true to an external reading...

    Dinner 2020

    Over the weekend I was rummaging around the freezer and came upon a batch of homemade sambal to try to recreate Singapore (Old) Lai Huat's specialty, sambal fish. Photos of which can be found in two of my Singapore travel blogs and also on the most recent trip to Jogjakarta. Suffice it to say that mine paled by comparison, but it was still tasty...
  19. Is it me or does that cleaver seem pretty dull? Evidently that doesn't make a big difference to the end result.
  20. I've never tried mincing meat by hand, but you have got my curiosity piqued for sure. About how long did it take? You didn't happen to take a video of it did you? What is the general procedure? First slice into smallish dice, then whack away?

    Lunch 2020

    Picked this up at the Korean grocery yesterday It won't win any awards, but not bad.... Not bad at all....
  22. I imagine that if you kept your blast chilled items in the middle of the self defrosting freezer (not near the walls) and surrounded by other frozen stuff you should be ok.

    I've been thinking of ordering from there for a long time but haven't pulled the trigger yet... I'll be curious about your experience with it.

    Where did you get these dumplings? Before this whole virus thing, I used to go down to Manhattan Chinatown to Lan Zhou Homemade Noodle and pick up a frozen bag of 50 dumplings... their dumplings (not soup dumplings) are amazing!
