  1. This is the peel I use for loading pizza... https://superpeel.com/exo-long-handled-non-stick-super-peel-wood-fired-oven-peel/ There is a better picture of it in Modernist Bread. For turning and retrieving pizza the peel I use is thin stainless steel.

    APO chicken, wild rice, 30 second green beans.
  3. Do the halves fit together? If so, with (what I am assuming are) the handles on the same side or opposite sides?

    That is beautiful! I almost wish I could bring myself to taste raw fish.

    I have two pastes: http://amzn.com/B01M31VHNZ http://amzn.com/B00A9OF6NS Could you (or anyone) say if either or both would be considered traditional for ma po tofu?
  6. My mother used to give me paregoric, more fun and it tastes better.
  7. I always thought Scotch tasted like medicine.
  8. Recently I ordered shad and littlenecks from Citarella. I was very pleased (except for the price) and they have flat rate ice packed shipping in the US. https://www.citarella.com/shop/seafood/specialty-seafood/wild-cleaned-squid-whole.html
  9. Mai tai's, the occasional Mississippi punch. I brought twelve limes home this afternoon. Did you really need to hear that?

    I had not been, thanks. It is not much different from what I did. Which reminds me, I have at least one more meal of leftovers.
  11. Just a data point... Tonight I finished a bag of tortilla chips that had been open the better part of a year. So good were they and not in the least bit rancid, I checked the ingredients: "organic sunflower oil and/or organic safflower oil."

    Thank you Ann. I have more Ma Po tofu recipes than I can shake a stick at. This one from Hsiao-Ching Chou was good but not my finest. She calls for cornstarch which is not my favorite thickener. I used potato starch. (The tapioca starch I took from the freezer turned out to be almond flour.) That the sauce was over thickened was my fault entirely, not hers. She says to add only as much thickener as necessary. To my taste buds the dish was not hot enough. For the leftovers I remedied this. I think I over did it. Nothing that lots of rice can't fix.

    By what method do you or anyone really, really dry fry beans these days?

    Perhaps you do not care for celery?
