  1. Lunch last Wednesday got cancelled by Covid. Lunch this Wednesday got cancelled by Covid. @Kerry Bealand I were wondering if we would ever have an opportunity to share lunch. But ….serendipity! A Covid related errand brought Kerry into my neighbourhood not too far from our very favourite Vietnamese restaurant. It was perhaps the shortest lunch we’ve ever had together but that made it only that much more special. The noodle soup special of the day for Kerry. My usual Pork wreck. It was so serendipitous because I’ve been dreaming of this f

    Lunch 2021

    Even I will not deny that it is one of the most beautiful dishes I have seen recently. Doesn’t mean I would eat it though. But I am still tempted by that book.
  3. No. No. No. And I am a huge fan of Spam but just No!
  4. I know you have tested the oven temperature but when I was having issues not too different from yours I discovered it was not so much the temperature but the signal that the oven is actually preheated to that temperature that was amiss. So the oven signalled that it had reached 350°F but in fact it was still closer to 300°. Just a thought.

    Curiosity got the better of me and I found this which looks so much like your platter: Here.

    Dinner 2021

    I can’t eat crab but every time you post about it I think of this dish that was one of my late husband‘s favourites. It makes a lovely appetizer. I used to put shrimp instead of crab in mine. Here. You can assemble it all a few hours at a time, put it in the fridge, and bake it for service.

    Breakfast 2021

    We were doing so well. Scrambled eggs, Gorgonzola, pizza, left over. But then… kale.
  8. But perhaps if you have consumed enough of it you don’t notice?
  9. Ah. This I did not know. I guess it is sort of like the way we wipe out a nonstick pan with a paper towel between dishes or steps. I admit I never understood its purpose.
  10. Most fruits and vegetables displayed in the produce department are unwrapped. Anything that arrives on the check-out belt without a plastic bag is inserted into one before it goes into your shopping bag.
  11. My original post has been corrected.
  12. Nope. Poor copy editing on my part. I dictated kidney, I think but it got changed to cheese, I think! I think I did understand what they meant by grilled. I am not quite sure that what I think of as a mixed grill would necessarily be correct. I would think of lamb chops lamb kidneys, beef steak, tomatoes and mushrooms. I have had many mixed grills over here but they have been of cuisines other than British.
