  1. Again, vacuum method. I'm not sure where the bubbles on the crust came from. The dough was not retarded.
  2. I shall never again shake my evening Mississippi punch without the lid. And since the last time it's been almost four months! For real this time. Disclaimer: does not apply to mai tais. Void where prohibited.
  3. Looks interesting. I can't quite see how Market Wagon works. Can anyone explain in simple words?
  4. I suffer from aphasia under stress. Once in a restaurant in Philadelphia the table across from me was burning, and was about to ignite the curtain. I had no voice. I couldn't shout, I couldn't make a sound. I frantically waved my arms till someone saw me.

    Dinner 2022

    Porkchop, sweet potato, Brussels sprouts. You've seen this before, move along.
  6. But why would one want grapefruits? Joking, just joking -- I use grapefruit to make my zombies. (But only white grapefruit.)
  7. My wireless probes are from Thermoworks. I'm not sure what this brings to the table.
  8. I was going to say the ranch is not Momofuku.
  9. I'm pretty sure he does not use salted duck eggs in corn salad.
  10. Not a Costco member. I rarely have need of bulk purchases and the nearest Costco (that I know of) is an hour away. By car. If you have a car. I can get acceptable peanuts from nuts.com but Planters are cheap and usually quite good, in my opinion.
  11. I shall never again hemorrhage all over the kitchen floor. However my timing could not have been more fortuitous! Amazon reduced the price and tonight I had an iRobot mop delivered. We shall assay how well the little robot does with blood stains. I am less sanguine about the formerly white rug in the dining room.
  12. Today Shoprite had a notice posted. The gist of which: "Due to unprecedented supply chain problems we don't have much to sell. We appreciate your patience." Product shortages are becoming funny. But at least Shoprite had limes and potatoes. And plenty of fresh produce. (And toilet paper, which is more than I can say for amazon.)

    Lunch 2022

    Lafayette was a patriot and I'm sure he knew how to eat.
  14. Most of my battery of Falk are the classic line, with the iron handles. They are beautiful and lovely. However these days I employ them pretty much only for Hollandaise and when I need my largest frying pan. I am spoiled by my Paragons and induction. Thankfully I have a couple pieces of Falk's induction line. The only real disadvantage is they are not yet offered in the largest sizes. Mitigated by the fact that any heavier and I could not lift them.

    Lunch 2022

    Sadly what that brings to mind is canned asparagus and saliferous chipped beef.
  16. Buy one! My melanger is seldom used but it will do what nothing else will do.

    WW? Beautiful picture.
  18. Pricy, thanks, but I might give them a try.
  19. I am bent out of shape with a response from Hormel regarding rancid Planters Peanuts. As anyone who knows me knows I purchase a lot of Planters Peanuts. The jar I recently opened was horribly rancid. The Hormel customer service rep explained the peanuts were rancid because they were past the date code (by less than a month, I might add). I opened another jar and they were fine. I expected at the very least Hormel would have offered me a replacement jar of peanuts. I am not planning to boycott Hormel, as I like their products too much. But I will voice my dissatisfaction with Hormel customer service till the end of the internet. Or of time. Whichever comes first. I used to run a company. That is not how one treats customers.
  20. Do I observe correctly there is an unpeeled onion?
