    With cranberry sauce.
  2. One of my colleagues reported that her beloved VitaMix died with smoke pouring out of the motor unit. The blender was out of warranty. She plans to contact the company to see if they will do anything for her. I hope to convince her to come over to the side of Blendtec.

    Norm, did you ask him?
  4. I just noticed what appears to be a small spider in an unopened bottle of La Favorite. I think it's dead. The spider. Would the rhum be safe to drink if I decant it carefully? Is @Ed Hamilton competing with mezcal?
  5. Welcome to the 1970's. The lamb rib chops that a few months ago were $14 a pound are now $25.
  6. Has anyone else tried the new (11/17/2021) anova Toast 2.0 recipe? It is said to work well with split English muffins. Well, it wasn't. At least not for me. I like my English muffins soft on the inside, and these were crunchy through and through. Plus the recipe took 10 minutes. I haven't gotten great results from the anova Toast 101 recipe either. However the Toast 101 recipe makes no claims for English muffins. In defense of the Toast 2.0 recipe, my English muffins looked unappetizingly like the toast pictured in the app, so perhaps the problem is with my expectations.
  7. I have had brains only once: Italian Line, prima classe crossing. A Croation friend said she no longer enjoyed brains after seeing them spattered on the walls of the train station after a wartime bombing.
  8. Did they omit the Momofuku ranch?

    Dinner 2021

    I was/am unbelievably tired. Dinner was rice and stir-fried cabbage. Nothing I would have rather eaten. Dessert was peanut butter gelato... https://forums.egullet.org/topic/152508-home-made-ice-cream-2015–/?do=findComment&comment=2321762
  10. (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Sorry, I did not understand the vertical member was the part you were wanting to see. The stand I have seems to be out of stock but similar laboratory stands are fungible. Although admittedly some lab stands are sturdier than others. My laboratory stand is a steel rod that screws into a cast iron tripod base. Inexpensive and quite useful. Be careful if you want a clamp. The first clamp I bought was garbage. However clamps cost almost nothing, and amazon is good with their returns.
  11. I have long, thin spidery fingers. In other words weak fingers. Pull tabs never were a thing for me, even with pliers or a pull tab tool. Now for pull tab cans I use a can opener. Even our local Shoprite has a couple brands of tomato paste in tubes. The convenience is fantastic.
  12. Vanilla. Peanut butter. The vanilla was good. Peanut butter perhaps the best ice cream I have made. https://forums.egullet.org/topic/152508-home-made-ice-cream-2015–/?do=findComment&comment=2321762
  13. I am minded of the time I made eggnog with lab ethanol. The eggs curdled as if they were fried.

    Time. I actually thought the Philips grill was broken because the elements were not painful to look at. Often I have to wear dark glasses to cook on it.

    The steak was well overdone.
  16. I will never again not label my gelato. We all know this is a brazen lie.

  18. I will never again broil my strip steak on the Philips grill keep warm setting.
  19. I once had a kitty who made off with a steak. After that we had a rule that anyone on the table was fair game for being eaten.
  20. If it tasted really good I wouldn't share.
