  1. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Lunch was seared salmon and leaf salad. I gave the fish a salt then sugar rub and wicked away moisture as it cured for just under an hour. Made for a good crust without too much penetration flavorwise
  2. Look forward to your reviews. Are you the only taster or do you intend to enlist a few other palates in the tasting? it would be really good if these were blind tastings so there was no perceptual biases

    Almost forever. I have a clump of petrified paste in the back of one fridge. Needs to get tossed and replaced

    That's the brand I find in my Asian markets. It's good but I have no frame of reference, it's the only one I've seen
  5. Silky Smooth Chicken Breast

    My guess is there is some velveting happening
  6. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Last night I made lamb shanks with mashed potatoes
  7. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Just back from a long walk and the last of a chicken rillette I made a couple days ago hit the spot
  8. Breakfast! 2018

    Made a Spanish tortilla for breakfast today. A Sunday morning treat
  9. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Thanks for the trivia. Art was good but age has taken its toll on his sweet voice yet he did great all things considered. Small intimate theater was a nice venue He is actually a cousin of a friend of mine, Both Art and Louis Perlman. The boys from the Bronx
  10. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    I got home just a while ago and had some leftover smoked chicken from the other night that wasn't going to be eaten today. Going to see Art Garfunkle tonight and have dinner plans with friends. Thought about chicken salad but since my duck rillette was a flop from last month from too much salt in the curing process I made a chicken rillette with the leftovers. Didn't have chicken fat so used some saved bacon fat, is that a bad thing? Tuned out out pretty good. In the fridge firming up and will be a nice app before heading out the door. Could be dinner for me but my vote doesn't count tonight. Will be a nice snack over the weekend

    I want a bite of that pizza Shelby. Looks great
  12. Pimento Cheese

    Pretty much how I've made mine at home and the mayo was Duke's
  13. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Stashed a spatchcocked chicken on the smoker this afternoon. Mashed potatoes seems like a nice foil to the fragrant meat
  14. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    A couple meals. Last night, salmon belly and tail off the smoker. The fish was salted and coated in brown sugar before hitting the smoker. So good tonight a kosher salchicha sausage done middle eastern style
  15. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I went into Aldi the other day to pick up their $20 food dehydrator. Tried to make some biltong with a lean bottom round roast but even sliced thin across the grain it's way too chewy with thin thread like fibers running through the meat But currently I'm tending the smoker which is holding the tail and belly portions of a side of salmon also from Aldi. Seasoned with salt and brown sugar
  16. Breakfast! 2018

    Slow low heat scrambled eggs. They get so creamy it's like custard. Served with buttered and toasted sliced Italian loaf bread
  17. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Reheated some smoked chuck in the SV bath and served with cubed potato oven fries.
  18. Aldi

    Envys are excellent if you crave sweet and crisp. One of my favorites
  19. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Seared salmon, sushi rice, edamames and frieze salad was dinner
  20. Aldi

    Blackout only lasted a couple hours. Yeah one cold snap in Florida and we go dark.
  21. Aldi

    Well not shortly. Power outage for the last couple of hours. Rats! I’ll be making coffee by pour over and hoping my office has power.
  22. Aldi

    Just got one yesterday. Biltong is marinating and going in shortly
  23. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    No pics but I seared amberjack and served it with a side of succotash and cabbage carrot slaw. I had made rind candy from Myers lemon peel after making Shane's hummus today ( it was the only lemons on hand) and it added a nice sweet crunch and flavor boost to the fish. The combo was better than anticipated
  24. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2018)

    Sliced thin they are quite good. Needs a good dressing
  25. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Just running through the list of ingredients I'm like what's not to love
