  1. I got some nice looking asparagus today that is going onto my PAG tonight!

    I have a couple different mandolines. I get the best results with the v-slicer that I bought on QVC. I also use the no-cut glove (which is not foolproof).
  3. I’m shopping for a new fridge, would you recommend that brand?
  4. is that you fridge on the right? If so, what brand?
  5. Here’s my pile-up on my dining room table:
  6. You've inspired me. When my house cleaning people leave I’ll take a photo of my dining room table where I store the overflow from the kitchen.
  7. My love of cookware is consuming. My cabinets are full of pots and pans, cast iron, pressure cookers, small appliances and gadgets galore....many of which never get used! Since I'm moving in a few months to much smaller house I have to get rid of at least half of all this. It's going to be tough to part with these things that were acquired with much happiness. My current home has loads of storage, almost a dozen big closets which helped to feed my addiction. No more. Sign...

    New Kitchen

    Sorry, it’s a microwave.

    New Kitchen

    I don't like how the standard size sticks out. My current model sits out about six inches into the kitchen. With the S-Z counter-depth I can get one that's 42" wide which adds a good amount of space, plus it's 84" tall. More space there.
  10. My new house is in the early stages; it is barely framed up but I'm already dreaming of my dream kitchen. Yesterday I went to our one big appliance store (other than HD and Lowe's) and I think I'm going to go wild with the new units. First up I'm thinking of a Sub-Zero side by side. A Thermador 30" slide-in dual fuel range, a Bosch d/w as well as a new m/w and a new hood of a type yet to be determined. All this is really overkill since I'm by no means a big presence in the kitchen, and these expensive appliances do not define the home which is really rather modest. But I'm figuring this is my last rodeo, if you will. I have heard of some folk having trouble with Sub-Zero repairs so I plan to add a warranty protection plan.. Anyone have any negative experiences with any of these brands?\ ETA: I have been reading reviews online about Sub-Zero fridges and I may have to re-think that choice. Those reviews are not good. Much as I'd like to have a custom-size I'm beginning to have grave concerns about repairs.

    Dinner 2020

    I got mine from Amazon. It's this one. Make sure you get the 8x10" to fit the CSO.
  12. I've started cleaning out some of my kitchen cabinets in anticipation of the big move coming. Although it's four months away but I'll need all that time to reduce my collection of stuff. The big thing is my freezers...I have two uprights plus my side by side. I haven't started working on those yet though I've set a moratorium on any new proteins and am trying to use up what I have. I was astounded yesterday when I began purging the pantry of canned goods, beans, pastas, extracts, etc. Good God, some of that stuff came here when we moved from Oregon in 2006 add many were duplicated! I'm not making that mistake again, we moved items that cost more to move than they were worth. Anyway, I figure if I sort through one cabinet or one closet each day from now til the first of July I may have accomplished almost all of what I need to get through.

    Your chicken looks amazing. What is your recipe, if you don’t mind.

    Dinner 2020

    They're $7.99 (frozen) a pound here if you can find them....and this is beef country! What the heck are the meat producers doing with them! And why the heck are they called OXtails!?
  16. Yes! I've been behind that woman.
  17. Absolutely, it sure has been working for me although it's not as sophisticated here. I pay $4.95 for curbside pickup. But I love not having to get out of my car. All our stores (the major ones) have the same arrangement.
  18. They are lookers, nevertheless. Sorry you didn’t love them.
  19. I usually gave my hubby a detailed grocery list. Otherwise it went like this: Hubby calling me from the store, “Hey, they don’t have ______” Me: “Yes they do, ask someone”.
  20. I’m thinking asparagus would go well also.
  21. Thanks, @blue_dolphin, for this recipe. I'll be making it tomorrow, after I get the ingredients from the store today.

    I always put a pinch of kosher salt in my margaritas. I can easily tell if I've forgotten to add it.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Today’s late breakfast was Just Crack an Egg scrambler with KAF’s Peasant Bread. This bread is so simple that the taste of the butter really shines through. Makes great toast although in my CSO it takes two cycles to get brown. Peasant Bread
