    Grocery Shopping

    The weather this afternoon was as dry as it's been this spring (though that's not saying much) so I decided to hazard a trip to the store. The wetlands are usually mud and standing water. Today the trail was babbling brook. Some civic minded soul had put down rocks for stepping stones. I made it to Shoprite without falling in. I didn't need much but I learned Shoprite no longer carries Jif Natural peanut butter. Why, Shoprite? I also stopped for rum. Going home I planned a different, much longer route that I could cross dry shod. In the fifteen years or so since the corn fields have become a park there are trails I've only been on a couple times. I had to pause to appreciate the views. I am fortunate to live in an area of natural beauty. Even if it is short on grocery stores.

    You did post it in another thread. I just came inside from admiring my peas.

    They don't keep for another year?

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Of course I baked the focaccia in the CSO. TeamFar Toaster Oven Tray and Rack Set I use this little pan a lot but not usually in the CSO.

    Dinner 2019

    The sockeye fillet I received was longer than I expected, longer than the cutting board. I began by portioning it from the tail and working my way toward the head. The thickest piece is yet to come.* Jeff doesn't give a choice of fillet. I don't think I'll be buying sockeye from him again. *though after two nights the salmon is wearing out its welcome.

    More sockeye. Sill overdone but not as dry as last night's. Soave helps. I'm still favoring king salmon. For one thing king salmon is a lot easier to get the bones out. Dessert pistachio ice cream. My doctor tells me to eat salmon and nuts.

    Am I a plebeian or are black tomatoes a thing?

    After five years of Latin I thought that was how the Romans defined it.

    I am not aware of a definition other than the Roman one?

    In fact Kumatos were last night's dinner. https://forums.egullet.org/topic/157787-dinner-2019/?do=findComment&comment=2200889

    First time through I went to the bottom of the page and missed the hamburgers. I wondered why you'd be putting ketchup on blue cheese.

    I stole this idea from @jimb0.

    Last night: My first time cooking sockeye. It was dry. Served with rosemary focaccia.

    I like Kumatos and Campari. They are the only fresh tomatoes I will eat other than my own.

    A food processor that isn't ugly to look at

    Spare parts are expensive for almost anything. Some years ago I bought a second bowl for my Cuisinart. I don't remember the price but it was not unreasonable.

    eG Cook-Off #82: Salmon

    I tried sockeye. Sadly I found it dry and unappetizing compared with king salmon. Sad, because it was less than half the price.

    I thought these were for sale. Made by one of the original Roomba founders. They are solar powered and never need charging. My concern is what happens when they escape into the wild and reproduce?
  20. [Hosts' note: this topic is part of an extended conversation that grew too big for our servers to handle efficiently. The discussion continues from here.] I've been searching for the post @Anna N made awhile back about the CSO tomato tart with the insufficiently caramelized onions. I think it was in this thread but I sure can't find it. I had half a thought to try the tart for dinner but I've never used frozen puff pastry dough sheets before. Maybe it's buried in a Manitoulin thread?

    I planted three tomatoes yesterday.
  22. I think the logic is that the serial number tells Cuisinart when the unit was made, and you were unlikely to have purchased the CSO before it was manufactured.
  23. Cuisinart never asked me for a receipt or proof of purchase.

    Making Pistachio Ice Cream and Gelato

    Teo, I'm with you on fruit sorbets. Some decades ago* I pureed and strained a batch of fresh picked raspberries but didn't quite know what to do with them. Unbeknownst to me my younger son spun the puree in whatever high-end ice cream maker** we had at the time. Tart it was but I've ne'er had finer. That aside, I've obtained more heavy cream and hope to give pistachio ice cream another spin. My pistachio paste isn't getting any younger. Nor am I. *Before Lyme disease. **It was Italian.

    What Are You Cooking Sous Vide Today? (Part 3)

    I'm still open to ideas, I could go for schnitzel. Indeed I am one person and there is enough tenderloin for schnitzel, roasting, and sous vide.
