    Lunch 2019

    Saw an individual duck leg at the store this morning. Into the CSO at 375f for 25 min after a rub with soy sauce and sesame oil. In my earnest attempt to empty a freezer, I retrieved some mandarin pancakes. Assembly was with hoisin sauce and green onion shreds. This was accompanied by a salad and a cup of gazpacho which was also from the freezer. The soup is pretty good considering it is a raw soup. Two more pancakes for tomorrow.😀

    Dinner 2019

    Nice looking meals everyone. All very inspiring. Grits and Mushroom Sugo topped with a poached egg from Gjelina cookbook. First picture is my grits and sugo and the second picture is the finished dish from the book because I forgot to take a picture of my final dish. This was really good. I had some dried wild mushrooms, dried Shiitake and dried porcini mushrooms which I added to some fresh button mushrooms. These are nicely browned then cooked with onions, garlic, tomato paste, thyme, bay, white wine and stock.

    Thank you @Duvel. My stove is not totally level so the batter was thicker on one side. Probably a coin or two under one side of the pan could fix this problem. I really like them and will be a good addition to my Dim Sum repertoire.
  4. I just finished reading the first round judgements. Interesting to see what people value in a cookbook. The more background provided about a recipe the more inviting I find it and that seems to be what most of these judges were looking for also.

    I have seen sardines with a Chili ...I don’t like tuna so maybe why I haven’t seen it.

    Food recalls

    Not really a recall but perhaps should be. I stopped buying Asian shrimp a couple of years ago. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/shrimp-antibiotics-resistance-amr-marketplace-1.5055101
  7. @Shelby how many ‘righties’ and how many ‘lefties’? Or does it matter?🤪 Seriously, I need to find a bag of feet to enhance my stocks...not easy to find in little old Penticton. On the subject of gelatinous additions to stock, does anyone use packaged powdered gelatine ?

    Bonacini's Italy

    I think I watched his series on GustoTV I like watching his technique.
  9. Thanks! Good to know. my back up arrived just now. i will put it through a few paces later. i guess I will then drain ALL the reservoirs and stash downstairs until it is required.

    Kindness and Salt

    I believe it is one of the books in Food52 Piglet competition.
  11. Canadian Tire doesn't carry them anymore!
  12. Our house is an R2000 home which is basically an airtight house. If we have a fire in the wood burning fireplace and I want to use the stove fan, I have to turn on a specially installed fan that brings air in from outside.
  13. No is was their NN-ST775S with the cyclonic inverter. Purchased on sale at Canadian Tire just about two years ago. I really liked it
  14. What's a home without a steam boy in every room?! Canadian Tire used to have them and they would go on sale at around $199 but they aren't carrying them anymore which is why I just went ahead and ordered one through Amazon and it's weird because they have three models for sale: 300NC is $381.25 300N1C is $199.00 300C is $305 The one I currently have (for about 3 years I think) is a 300C No idea what the differences are amongst the models.
  15. I just ordered my back up from Amazon.ca, $199.00 Cnd with free shipping. Seeing my 2 year old Panasonic microwave just died and the thought that it is likely discontinued made me pull the trigger. Thanks everyone.
