  1. Dinner 2017 (Part 3)

    I may have to stock up on canned soups. Although last night I dreamed of a refrigerator full of pre-prepared vegetables, a freezer with carefully labelled, already cooked meals and I am sure I missed something… You know how it is with dreams.
  2. The Bread Topic (2016-)

    This is the same no-knead bread that so many of us make and display in this topic. It costs pennies a loaf.

  4. Meat Blasphemy - Well Done Steak

    I have always thought blindfolds would do the trick.
  5. Told you you should've left Hubby at home and taken me.
  6. Dinner 2017 (Part 3)

    A "forced march" dinner. I have not been doing much cooking lately and find myself falling into the trap of doing whatever is easiest and fastest. Tonight I decided I needed to break out of that habit before it became the norm. In the end this didn't take very long at all. Frozen spinach done in the microwave, eggs softly scrambled, tomatoes seeded and chopped and in fairly short order I had a surprisingly tasty meal.
  7. McDonald's 2013–

    Has anybody cared enough to try? I have never understood the appeal of either one.

  9. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    I am grateful that while I was sober I was smart enough to decant some akvavit so that there was no chance of a whole bottle being frozen and ready to drink. Somebody once said there will be days like this. I shall be sleeping for an hour or three.
  10. I haven't had breakfast in a hotel for decades. For me it never was about the food which was always iffy. The prices were always exorbitant. But the hushed atmosphere was something that could not be replicated anywhere. It was like Sunday morning mass but without the incense.
  11. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 1)

    When something appears on your plate three times in three days there is a strong indication that one ought to place a grocery order.
  12. Rabbit Rorschach

    Nah. It is obviously a very pregnant bunny, holding her swollen belly and asking, "How the hell did this happen?"
  13. Do tell @Blether how much he is missed around these parts!
  14. Butter Tarts

    Rustic is exactly the way I think a well-made butter tart should look. I am not recommending these other than for their looks. When I think of them this is what I see Click

    Without raisins they are an abomination. I will happily take your raisins and you can have my brownies.
