  1. Agree with the Dijon mustard. We use it all the time and always make sure to have extra on hand as we don't get to very TJ's often, maybe a couple of times a year.
  2. Best Fast Food Burger

    Where is Slater's 50/50?

    Great looking spuds.
  4. The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Thermomix focaccia. These were baked in two different ovens and it shows on the colouring. Both tested done though, so I pulled them.
  5. I can't remember exactly when I got it but it was a Christmas present one year, at least 6 years ago. I don't think the others were out yet, or if they were, we didn't know about them. I use it probably once a week. The things I use it for are mainly steaks, long cooks for tougher beef cuts, pork roasts and pork chops and chicken breasts. It heats the water fairly quickly and I am happy with it.
  6. @pjm333 those tarte tatins look amazing. If I am reading your posts right, you cut the puff pastry circles in the appropriate size, bake them, cook the apples in the pans and then invert them over the pastry?
  7. Not Another Way To Roast Chicken!

    Funny, that's what crossed my mind.
  8. I have the Polyscience and am very happy with it.

    @Anna N and @kayb here is the finished product. It was very good, we managed to eat the whole thing!

    @Anna N and @kayb thank you both. I am making this tonight. I cooked up a smoked picnic shoulder the other day and had thought of making scalloped potatoes to go with it, but this looks way better. Thank you both.

    @kayb I must have mis-read your post. I thought you had found the recipe on-line, and wondered where you found it. I did find the book, but thanks for taking the time to post the link.

    Where did you find this? I looked for it too, obviously your sleuthing skills are better than mine. When @Anna N posted this I wanted to take a big bite out of my tablet screen.
  13. I read upthread somewhere that this thread does not necessarily have to be ladies who lunch, so a modest contribution from me. We had lunch today at a Korean place, which is a cafeteria type place in the basement of an office building. It is run by a Korean husband and wife and the food is wonderful. We go there from time to time, their specialty is Korean fried chicken which we have had a number of times but today I had the seafood pancake and John had the fire chicken with noodles.
  14. It's always nice to have something to strive for. I'll do my best.
