    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Looks delicious.
  2. I baked a couple of croissants this morning at 400F bread setting for 15 minutes. No adjustments necessary.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    @scamhi what is the 6th dish, corn, tomatoes?
  4. When I was in my teens I worked at whatever summer jobs I could get. This included picking strawberries, beans, and in the fall, apples , hoeing tobacco plants in the fields and working the tobacco harvest. I started when I was 13. I did not lack a work ethic. One summer I decided to fit in a couple of days of picking raspberries. I lasted the morning. The raspberry place was about 2 1/2 miles from my house and I walked there and back. Even I could see it just wasn't worth the effort for what I was getting paid. I figure it must take 4 or 5 wild blueberries, volume wise to equal 1 raspberry. No wonder they charge what they do. I don't begrudge them a penny.

    @Okanagancook Thanks again. Was the rice worth the price when shipping is factored in? I have an order from filled in but I don't know if I am going to place an order. The popping corn and the pencil cob I find particularly intriguing.

    Now that I see your list I could swear I have seen it somewhere before along with a comment on shipping costs. For the life of me, I can't find it. Pencil Cob Grits sound interesting.
  7. Did you or I eat in any of the places mentioned?

    I just looked on their web site. What kind did you get?
  9. https://anovaculinary.com/introducing-the-anova-precision-cooker-stand/ Just ordered one of these. Not sure if this is the right place for this.
  10. Sorry, that was badly worded. I didn't look for them at Costco, just the mangos. I noticed the 50% off sticker which made me think Loblaws or Independent which I did look at and also Metro. I agree that homemade is probably better but I find it handy to have a premade something or other on hand when you just want something quick.
  11. @Anna N Bought some of those mangos at Costco yesterday and just had one. They are very good. I also looked for the Libertè flan but could not find them. Are they worth looking for?

    Yes to sift first or just chuck the lot in there?

    I just checked my Vitamix and it would seem I have the dry grains top. It holds 32 ounces. Are you suggesting we sift à la @chromedome and then blitz the large pieces or throw it all in there?
  14. @rotuts Interesting article. Thanks for the link.
