  1. Kind of the same situation here; I used to live in Portland with easy access to most anything but I am much happier here where if I find something quite unusual it's a pleasant surprise. Some say that living in Montana is like traveling backwards in time and in some ways it's true, but it's not necessarily a bad thing.
  2. I can't find Bisto either. But it's only because I bought some a few months ago via Amazon and it's lost somewhere in my kitchen. I'll only find it when I've purchased its replacement.
  3. A good-looking bunch. And your Mum certainly doesn't look her age!

    Breakfast 2019

    Breakfast today consisted of pre-cut fruit from the supermarket (a nice mix of berries, melon and grapes) Together with cottage cheese. In the small town nearby there's actually a very well stocked grocery store that's open 24 Hours! This in a town with a population of 2,200. Amazing.
  5. My current favorite is a Salty Dog....going along with the grapefruit theme, made with Gin.

    Subway 2011–

    My local Subway that's just a stone's throw from where I live has come in quite handy during my recovery from surgery a few weeks ago. I can order ahead of time and just pop over and pick up my lunch. I usually get a foot long club and a chopped salad (their salads are quite good). The two items provide me with food for at least a couple of days. This store is still run by the same woman who"s been there for at least a couple of years (possibly more). Of all the different ones I've tried hers is the nicest: that wasn’t always the case since before she took over it was run by high school kids and it was not a place where I wanted to go for food. Now it's a place where your food is taken seriously. i always tip when I get my sandwich and I hope she can stay in business. (auto-correct is my enema.)
  7. I don't know if this is one of the 'rules' but I leave my butter out all the time, 24/7 regardless of the temperature. I keep it in a china covered butter dish. It has never gone rancid and never melted. I use quality butter from Costco or the nearby grocer or the imported Kerrygold. Never had a problem and have been doing this for many, many years. ETA: I remember a young woman I worked with some years ago who lived with her boyfriend in a trailer. She left the butter out on a dish on the counter overnight and when she went into the kitchen in the morning the butter dish was empty and surround by a circle of mouse turds.

    Breakfast 2019

    A couple of weeks ago when the weather here was hot I made exactly that same dish. I made the mistake of adding a dollop of Grey Poupon and it made it way too tart. Fortunately, after a day in the fridge that tartness mellowed out and then it was just right.
  9. And why have we not seen that particularly good-looking dog before?
  10. I break my spaghetti and I never wash my mushrooms (just brush any debris off). It works for me.
  11. So do you have a new rental there this year?
  12. I cut the end off then slide a paring knife between the skin and the wrapper lengthwise slicing thru the cellophane. Here they're wrapped in plastic but the method would work either way.

    The temperature here has dropped nearly 30 degrees in the last couple of days to the mid 50’s. Minestrone soup is on the menu. Made beef broth in the IP then combined the soup ingredients and am slow cooking til dinner time.

    Dinner 2019

    A simple enough dinner since I'm still recovering and will be it seems for another week or so. Potato salad in the IP, gosh, that was the easiest recipe ever, whew, And a bone-in pork chop done in the CSO and dinner is ready.

    Looks a lot tastier than what I'm having....cottage cheese with pineapple.
  18. My stainless measuring cup set has a two tablespoon (1/8 cup) measure. It is very handy and I use it all the time. I also have an old Tupperware measuring spoon set that includes a 1/2 Tablespoon (I-1/2 teaspoon) measure which is very handy for bread baking. Another nifty little spoon is KAFs 2-¼ Tablespoon yeast measure; it's another a great tool for bread making.

    Dinner 2019

    My searches didn’t turn up the poster who first mentioned Michigan Beans but, fortunately, I had saved the recipe. i've been looking for pantry friendly and simple casserole type foods that I can manage while recovering from my recent surgery and these beans are exactly what I was lookin for. Still not easy to get to the store for special ingredients and can't manage too much effort yet. The beans are in my crockpot now and they smell wonderful. I’m really looking forward to dinner (with a Subway salad alongside.

    In spades!
  23. Makes you wonder who designs things like this....obviously someone who doesn't cook. My GE gas range at least does have a decent burner design; big, fast burner at right front. Medium fast burner at left front (I use this one most). Small hot burner at right rear and small slow burner at left rear. Or, more simply said: Right side, large hot in front and small hot in rear. Slower large at left front and slower small in left rear. It's a good setup. The big, hot burner on the right front is super hot so I don't use it much, I have to keep and eye on it so it doesn't scorch. I've only used it for pressure cooking and big vats of boiling water.
  24. Peeled and trimmed, for me, the broccoli a stems are much tastier than the florets.
  25. A friend's husband is ALLERGIC to celery. How weird is that?!
