  1. Burgers/Meatloaf--Cook-Off 10

    Mine's a fairly minimalist meat loaf. A pound of beef, or if I want a big one, a pound of beef and a pound of pork. An egg. Panade of soft white bread and milk, the milk squeezed out. Seasonings -- salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup. (I don't like chopped veggies in my meat loaf, so I don't use them. I usually make mine quite flat and thin on a sheet pan, as I like a high ratio of outer crunch to inner soft. Also helpful for cutting sandwich-sized slabs the next day for sandwices. Sauce on top that's 3:1 ketchup to Worcestershire. On a baking stone to help the bottom crisp, 425 oven for 10 minutes, then down to 375 for another 15. Drain off the grease, and let it cool for a bit. I will always be grateful to @rotuts for the tip of using Brie on a meat loaf sandwich. Blissful. Toast the bread, mayo, meat loaf on one side, Brie on t'other, back in the CSO to warm the meat loaf and melt the Brie a bit, slap them together. Bread and butter pickles are a fine addition.

    I like them. I used pumpernickel flour instead of rye; didn't use the caramel color, rye flavor or vital wheat gluten as I didn't have any of them (I KNOW I have vital wheat gluten somewhere, but I couldn't find it). I increased the yeast to 2 1/2 tsp. based on not having the gluten. They didn't rise a lot, but were quite soft and made a good sandwich roll. Good, crunchy crust. Onions aren't really noticeable in texture in the finished product, interestingly, but provide a nice mild flavor.
  4. Happy Pi Day!!

    Having been busy grandmothering this week (His Highness had some surgery, and hasn't been released to return to preschool yet, so the works-from-home grandmother becomes the de facto babysitter; consequently neither work nor much cooking got done) so there was no Pi Day pi(e). I still have tart pie cherries; there may be a cherry pi(e) tonight. Pi plus 0.01, anyone?

    No points for presentation, but pastrami and Swiss on a potato onion rye roll last night. Roll recipe on the King Arthur Flour website.
  6. Given WalMart's rural locations, I suspect the delivery options will be in population centers. Both WalMart and Kroger here in Jonesboro (population about 75,000) offer an order online and pick-it-up option, and given we're a trade center for the surrounding unincorporated area, I suspect we'll be one of the 800 stores. As a college town, we have a pretty decent market for it, I think.

    I want that. It looks lovely!
  8. Another entrant into grocery delivery, at least on a limited basis: https://talkbusiness.net/2018/03/walmart-to-expand-online-grocery-delivery-to-40-of-u-s-homes/
  9. Tamales covered with grocery store chili, eaten with Saltines. Chili should be either Armour or Hormel, and should have no beans. I have my standards. Eagle Brand condensed milk, eaten from the can with a spoon. A can will last me about four junk-food settings. Spinach and sour cream dip made with Knorr's vegetable soup mix.
  10. Thanks for clearing that up. I had a mental picture of Matthew Brady with a kineoscope (which I don't think came along until the next century).
  11. I looked at that, but I have Ruhlman and Polcyn, and anything beyond that would have to be very attractive indeed.

    I got an early start last night with a chunk of pastrami from the Aldi corned beef I smoked day before yesterday. It got a 45 minute steam in the IP, and it was just pretty fine. I had it with roasted sweet potato wedges and a salad, as I'm saving the traditional accompaniments for Sunday. Happy upcoming birthday, @MetsFan5!
  13. Happy Pi Day!!

    H'mm. I have some tart pie cherries... We may have to get creative.

    I love your salad tongs. @robirdstx, I've always found Sam's preferable of all the rotissiere chickens. If I could just get past the factory farming of the birds. Fortunately, the CSO does a fine job of roasting a spatchcocked chicken.
