  1. I enjoy insect based food. It's called honey.
  2. Mulberries used to be a big thing in New Jersey.
  3. Found the thermometer again. Now I can't get it to connect to WiFi. So far today the thermometer has been my only project. I changed the batteries. Maybe a firmware update might help? I need the thermometer for tonight's braise. Events like this may explain why dinner is so often delayed.
  4. I shall never again misplace the thermometer I had just recently located. I must have set it down somewhere? I went looking for a small tripod to hold the thermometer. I eventually found the tripod, but now where is the thermometer?
  5. I shall never again -- not sure how to explain this -- go searching in the bedroom for a thermometer. As it turns out the thermometer was not in the bedroom. But what I did find was a leaking bag of what looked like liquid dog poop. (I do not have a dog.) The bag had fallen down between my battery of rolling pins and a pile of jeans. Last fall publication of Rose Levy Beranbaum's The Cookie Bible was delayed, and I did not bake cookies. Which means the Teflon rolling pin had not been touched in over eighteen months. And thankfully the jeans on the bottom of the pile are sizes I can't wear anyhow.

    As the recipe calls for.* Crispy and delicious. *blanched, then dried, then roast 425F for 20 minutes. My new favorite recipe for broccoli rabe.

    Egregious plating. The green stuff is broccoli rabe. Good.
  9. Here plantain is considered a common invasive weed. Known disparagingly among Indians as white man's foot.

    Dinner 2022

    Trying to cook a simple dinner I tripped the breaker. I hate my kitchen.
  12. Facing a couple unpaid weeks off work, I perhaps should not be reflecting on another knife -- but for anyone* who is, I read in The Economist that the Yen is in freefall against the Dollar. *in the US
  13. I have the Polyscience and I am pleased with it. Only two problems to speak of: the external vacuum line never works unless you hold the connector in. And when I ask Alexa, "Turn Polyscience on", she is most creative in misunderstanding what a Polyscience is.
  14. I shall never again prepare my mai tai leaving out both the Cointreau AND the rum.
  15. Batch 19. Same as batch 18. Lovely stuff, not much to say. I hope it gets me through the month.

    More curry. Managed a pappadum this time.
  17. It is well the Fissler roaster fits in my APO. So far that is the only spot I've found to store it.
  18. Sorry, their product lines are quite confusing: https://www.fissler.com/us/products/product-detail/original-profi-collection-round-roaster-11-in-5-qt-with-high-domed-lid-2019/

    Dinner 2022

    "Simple Curry" from The Yogi Cook Book by Yogi Vithaldas and Susan Roberts. Tilda Basmati rice. I've been making this curry for over fifty years. Grilled lamb, store bought naan, mango chutney, lime pickle, garlic pickle, coriander pickle, raisins, not shown. Regrettably no pappadum. I ran out of counter space and kitchen electrical capacity. Vithaldas says to improvise. For the curry I omitted whole cloves and added garam masala made from a Vivek Singh recipe. The garam masala contains coriander, cumin, green cardamom, black cardamom, cinnamon, mace, cloves, nutmeg, black pepper, and bay leaves. Leftovers planned for tonight. Maybe someday I will learn to use a bowl.
  20. For anyone interested, I recently received a Fissler 28cm covered roasting pan/rondeau. It just fits in the APO.
  21. I misspoke (again) the Fissler roasting pan/rondeau I have on order is 28cm, not 24cm. Maybe bigger than I had in mind. I hope it fits in the APO.
  22. It's the enzymes. Pineapple has the same effect on me. Think of it as being eaten by your food.
  23. No, but close to that I had an exploded can of coconut cream. Blew the cabinet open, got the ceiling, didn't quite make it to the opposite wall.
