  1. Yesterday was my day to host my friends for an afternoon of Canasta. I served green grapes and popcorn (Kornutopia brand) while we played. During halftime we had glazed appetizer meatballs, potato chips with dill dip, crackers and a variety of cheeses. After the game came dessert, a one-layer German Chocolate cake. It was a beautiful day, sunny and bright and in the high 70's. Last week my friend Ida made a delicious chicken salad served on toasted baguette slices,an item I'll replicate in the future. d
  2. I’m craving savory scones for breakfast these days. i made the KAF recipe for Bacon, Cheddar and Chive Scones which are really good...but next time I’ll reduce the salt a bit; between the cheese and the bacon, they don’t need very much added salt. Today I’ll make their Cheddar and Scallion Scones. I’ve made these before and they’re a favorite of mine.
  3. I’ve been on a baking frenzy this last week. three loaves of Cinnamon Raisin bread (some for my card playing friends) and a batch of Rosemary Potato rolls (recipes from KAF).
  4. We look forward to hearing the outcome.

    Dinner 2020

    My dinner tonight will be (it’s still somewhat early here and I’m still in cocktail hour mode). @mgaretz’s recipe for Cabbage Soup. A favorite of mine now. It a cool and rainy day here and there has to be soup on the menu.
  7. I have these. I bought them when CI top-rated them. They’re not particularly cheap but they are really excellent.
  8. My best ever results come from slow- cooking corned beef. And, no, I don’t use my iPot for that; my crockpot does a better job with just the right temperature. The resuly]take are simply amazing.
  9. If it were me, I’d put tape over the switch just until I broke the habit.
  10. I just purchased a container of Dungeness crab meat from the freezer case. 6 ozs. priced at $ 15.98. I needed it for my crab spread I'm serving to my card-playing friends. I've tried the canned stuff and what I got was really awful. This, hopefully, will be better (it should be) I'll post back afterwards.
  11. I have the same nails as you. Unfortunately the salons here are not yet able to open. God I hope it's soon!
  12. I placed my grocery order this morning for curbside pickup. Then I decided I wanted to make a crab spread appetizer for our card game on Friday and it was too late to add to my order. So my order arrived with only one exception, no cilantro (due to Cinco de Mayo, I’d guess). so I had to go inside the sore for the crab and I also wanted an ice cream cake for dessert. Found loads of cilantro on the shelf. Card playing menu: crab spread with various crackers and pita chips Spreadable cheeses for those who don’t eat seafood Pico de Gallo with tortilla chips Red grapes to eat while handling the cards Ice cream cake
  13. So, along with my margaritas I’m making a ham and Swiss quiche. Not Mexican but it’s what I have on hand.
  14. So far, two margaritas on-the-rocks.
  15. Yesterday I had an appointment with the carpenter who will be building the cabinets for my new kitchen. Yay! His shop is South of here in another small town. My friend went with me and we had a good visit going over the plans and choosing hardware, designs, color and layout. On the way home is a small restaurant called The Hamilton Fish House. I had gotten their phone number so we could get take-out. When I called from the cabinet shop they told me they were open! First day. We chose to eat inside and were the only customers. The fish and chips were great and it was just so wonderful to be out and about again after such a long time in isolation. They are under strict rules for separation and cleanliness but it is a big step forward. My county of approx. 46,000 has had just 5 known cases of the virus.

    Yes, almost all are either stainless or enameled cast iron.

    New Kitchen

    I'm rethinking my decision on a new range. I had thought I wanted this Thermador Dual Fuel But the appliance experts are saying that Induction is the best choice these days. Now the Cafe Induction is at the top of my list. I love the look of both. The clean top of the Café is wonderful.
  18. So Friday I tackled the big upright in the garage. It was loaded and there was lots of ice. I thought this one would go faster than the smaller one I cleaned recently but that didn't happen. It's quite large and there was a lot of meat in it. I found three whole chickens and two corned beefs (that I didn't even remember) as weel as a load of ground meats, vegetables, leftovers and lots and lots of pork. It rook most of the day to get the ice to melt. I used my big 8-qt. All Clad stockpot filled with boiling water; risking life and limb carrying it through the house and into the garage. Then I started with the hairdryer; after several tries I finally turned the dryer on, put it inside and shut the door and waited for 45 minutes. At last most of the ice was melted. I trashed almost half of contents simply because time is running out and I don't want to have to move more than is necessary. But, boy am I glad to be done with that job.
  19. Yep, that’s what I use now. Easy peasy.
  20. I don't understand. Doesn't the larger jar have to go into the fridge also?

    Thanks, no ill effects from it.

    Bad food?

    I ate it. Tasted very good. I’ll let you know if I start vomiting.

    Bad food?

    I left half a baked sweet potato on the counter overnight by mistake. Will I get sick if I eat it now? ( I refrigerated it early this morning as soon as I discovered it).
