  1. Created by @Alleguede, delivered by @Kerry Beal and will be enjoyed by yours truly. Not shown is a lovely baguette. Wish I had tried for a better photo.
  2. Finally a use for the date syrup that has been languishing in my pantry for Lord only knows how long – – unopened.
  3. If you can detect the presence or absence of 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice in this particular recipe then you obviously have an exquisite palate that puts mine to shame. Good for you. No hard feelings.
  4. OK. I get that. I still don’t get what difference 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice will make to this recipe.
  5. Yep it’s much more reliable. And for hard boiled eggs — from the fridge into cold water, turn on the heat and stir gently for a minute or two to centre the yolks, bring the water to a boil, turn off the heat, put on the lid, leave alone for 10 minutes, into ice bath and perfect every time.
  6. I have tried sous-vide eggs in all their many iterations and have never been able to maintain any kind of consistency in results.
  7. I have been confined to barracks now since 15 March. my daughter has been picking up groceries for me and I asked her if she would look for some already cut up carrots and celery. It sounds lazy but I have issues that make it much more challenging than it should be. She delivered this to my house today. I had some sour cream in the fridge and some onion soup mix in the pantry. served up with some dip.
  8. Not a fan of sous viding the “diaper” that is often a part of this packaging.
  9. Meals on wheels? Instead of waiting in line outside a supermarket, or trying to secure a slot with one of the grocery delivery apps — which have been slammed with demand during the COVID-19 lockdown — new startups and established companies alike are eager to offer Canadians a fresh alternative. The grocery industry is highly competitive and has been moving online for some time, but it now appears the competition will be intensifying further, with a range of new entrants looking to help Canadian shoppers buy from the safety of their homes.
  10. I will take that under advisement.
  11. One day a sleeve of Ritz crackers and then there’s this — straight out of the jar.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Well that makes sense. I was a little confused. They are lovely looking eggs. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Dinner 2020

    How was it? I ordered KFC a few days ago. 20 pieces dark meat. Thought I would freeze most of it. It’s disgusting. Flabby, greasy. Yuck.

    I do think you need to elaborate on this four-minute timing.
