  1. Thank you. I have mineral oil. And thank you for the Munising link. Thrift shop finds can be a lot of fun!
  2. @weinoo I bought this bowl at thrift shop. What oil did you use on yours? Your bowls look gorgeous!
  3. Neighbors gave me some early bounty from their garden.

    @Kim Shook my father succumbed to dementia as well. It gets better with time.
  6. CWent to Aldi in Falls Church, VA today during lunch. Very few people in the store, very full shelves. Eggs are $1.30. Bought this prosciutto for $2.56 for 4 ounce package. Also what kind of cheese is Borgonzola! Stay tuned

    DH complained that he didn’t have pasta for a long time. So there we go. Tomato purée, ground pork, carrots, onions, leftover Asian mushroom condiment of unknown provenance. It actually tasted good despite my dislike of the red sauce.

    Dinner 2020

    Alain Passard asparagus recipe with poached egg and brown butter. I used whole butter instead of clarified butter recommended in the recipe sine I like carmelized bits. Paired with Skins orange wine. https://www.gourmettraveller.com.au/recipes/browse-all/stand-up-asparagus-11297
  9. Asparagus the size of my thumb. I was never able to find it this big, I guess it was going to restaurants. I will try Alain Passard recipe. https://www.gourmettraveller.com.au/recipes/browse-all/stand-up-asparagus-11297

    Lunch 2020

    Cream of leftover roasted vegetables (mostly broccoli) soup with leftover roasted chicken. Garlic chives make everything better.

    Lunch 2020

    Shrimp with butter, garlic, garlic chives, parsley, cilantro, lime juice. Local asparagus that came in a variety of sizes. I served the skinny ones raw. Some were jumbo (not shown).
  14. @Porthos here is my neighbor’s #20 Griswold. Regular skillet is for comparison, not sure if it is 8 or 10 inch.
  15. I was missing thrifting as well. Northern VA is still closed but our beach house AKA Beach Dacha is in Maryland and I take full advantage of that. This is the first time I found #9. I will take a photo of our neighbors (antique store owners) massive Griswold pan over the weekend. Can’t even start to guess what size it is.

    Dinner 2020

    I do the same. DH clears the dishes after breakfast because he works from home for now.
  17. Thrift shops are open in Maryland! #9 Griswold for 32 dollars. It is in great shape.
  18. And my Chesapeake Bounty treasures. Tomatoes are probably not great but I wanted them. Strawberries perfumed my whole car.
  19. Today was my random Wednesday off. Which means things are stabilizing in the office. I was ecstatic to see that Nick’s of Calvert in Prince Fredrick, MD now has a beef aging refrigerator. They used to have unreliable supply of dry aged beef from Sysco but now it will be available all the time. Some good things happen during pandemic.
  20. DH is working from home. He made tacos with leftover chicken for lunch. Complete with sour cream, cheese of unknown (to me) provenance, bottled green salsa. Refried beans are made by me. Duck fat was involved.
  21. I am the first customer in a local store in North Beach, MD since the beginning of stay at home. A bottle of Moscadet to pair with our shrimp dinner. Photo is taken on Sunday.

    Dinner 2020

    Peppers stuffed with ground pork, garlic chives, leftover bean salad. Cooked in CSO bake steam 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  23. It was not the last egg. I went grocery shopping and got more eggs. They were not even expensive, 1.57 for a dozen of large Harris Teeter brand eggs. My friend who usually brings me farm fresh eggs (from her colleague who has a small farm) has just let me know that she has two dozen for me!
  24. You are correct. Corned beef was from a can. Potatoes are home made. I have to confess too that I liked it. Although I do make great corned beef sous vide myself.
