  1. A neighbor gave me zucchini from his garden. This is a foot long I can live with! I think people got nicer during the pandemic.

    @rotuts I love red boat fish sauce and also used for quick steak aging.

    A touch over 6 lbs, it was 6.25 last week. Pleasantly dry and firm to touch. I might eat it next week...

    Breakfast 2020!

    Lentils cooked lovingly by me in home made beef stock, canned chickpeas rinsed thoroughly by me, garlic chives that I am addicted to, leftover Chick-fil-A chicken. Egg on top makes it breakfast.

    Breakfast 2020!

    It took about a week. Flavor was identical to supermarket oyster mushrooms. It was a fun project for 10 dollars. I would not pay the original 20 dollars price.

  9. Not exactly food but toilet paper and paper towels supply is strong at Costco in Pentagon City.

    749 is for a refrigerator. My box was 250 or so. I think quality of meat and. length of aging determine the final product. Will keep you posted. This was a good regular Delmonico steak. I may try a prime or wagyu beef next.

    It has a fan, not sure if it runs continuously. There is a thin wire that goes out and gets plugged in outside the fridge. Initial weight was 6.75 lbs, it is 6.25 today. i do not have a hygrometer
  12. I love dry aged steak. The ones in grocery stores like WF are usually not aged long enough. I have first encountered SteakAger in a local grocery store in Prince Frederick, MD called Nick’s. They make properly aged steaks but those are often sold out on Saturday when I am able to shop there. So it turns out that there is a home version. https://www.thesteakager.com Now, it takes the whole shelf in the refrigerator but we have an extra one in Beach House. It’s for tasty beverages to quote @rotuts. So I bought 7 pounds Delmonico and what you see is after one week of aging. I will try to be strong and allow it to age for at least four weeks. home version. There is a pouch with rock salt inside to reduce the moisture. Professional version from the store

    Dinner 2020

    Mapo tofu made with expired tofu (best by 5/20/20, please don’t judge), pork, sauce from a jar. Served over rice. It was lip tingling good!
