  1. Made ice tea with mixture of green tea and min tea. Perfect for sunny warm days that we are enjoying this weekend on Chesapeake bay. Cuts back on my temptation to drink rose wine all day!
  2. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Grilled Italian sausages with new potatoes steam roasted and finished by pan sautéing in bacon fat. DH must have Stadium Mustard, he mail orders it from Cleveland.
  3. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    I did not cook today's breakfast either. Breakfast sandwiches. Scrapple for me and sausage for my husband. Cream cheese stuffed jalapeño poppers to share. Don't judge me scrapple haters . Chesapeake grill in North Beach MD does scrapple right: crispy on the outside and soft inside. And we had company.
  4. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Pan sautéed chicen breast with steam roasted new potatoes.
  5. If you pair mushrooms cooked according to your favorite method with a glass of red wine, you do not need to worry about antioxidants.
  6. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    We had a few people over. beet gazpacho with crab meat sous vide pork chops
  7. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    Very strong home made stock with ramen noodles Shin Ramyun brand. Few pieces of lef over pork lurking on the bottom.
  8. I have CSB in my condo and beach house, one spare one in storage just in case. It works great. Willing to be open minded about Anova but CSO works great.
  9. Dinner 2017 (Part 4)

    Lovely local asparagus from Chesapeake Bounty store in North Beach, MD with finely chopped cold cuts rescued from (too many) sandwiches catered for an office lunch.
  10. I succumbed as well. Love those kindle deals!
  11. Here is a sample menu from the Assisted Living floor.
  12. I see patients in an adult (retirement) living place every other Friday. Clinic is done at around 5 PM. As I am leaving, I see vibrant and happy people having a drink and snacks in the lobby. Various wines, cocktails, cheeses of the world. Recently one of my patients requested an earlier appointment so they can get ready for their talk on Gruener Veltliner. Their cafeteria smells good and there are full kitchens in the apartments. Even assisted living floor has menus that are not boring. I will try to remember to take a picture next Friday.
  13. Samovar?

    This is an electrical samovar. The writing mentions the manufacturer Minmestprom. ministry of the local production, of РСФСР which is an abbreviation used for Russia as part of the USSR. 50 Hz, 220 Volt. item number. 25 rubles.
  14. Yesterday we had lunch at Maido. You can order Nikkei experience which is a japanese/peruvian tasting menu (may be we will do it on Tue if I am not dined out on fancy food by then) but we chose to order from the menu. Tuna tartar on quinoa cracker. I wish Trader Joe's had crackers like that. Two different seviche. One in the rock dish is topped with fresh hearts of palm. Yum. I had sushi course. Dear husband does not like sushi. When sushi arrived, he volunteered to share it with me which almost caused a scene. I did let him have one salmon, one scallop, and one eel/foie gras pieses. Fat tuna was not to be shared with anyone. Oh, and the waiter tried to shame me for asking for soy sauce. I was so angry about sharing sushi at that point that one look at my facial expression sent him running to bring me a cute little soy sauce dispenser. Little goat dumplings and cui what I called "meat balls". Tasty and exotic. The best non sushi dish of the day: uni rice. It was creamy, tasted like the sea. The best seafood risotto I ever had! "Seviche" dessert. I am not a huge dessert fan and this one was only OK. Tasted like a slightly sweet yogurt.
