  1. So many good things to do with these guys. Grill them and serve them as a salad. Roast and make a paste in a mortar and pestle and use as a pizza base. Paste them add potato flour and make gnocchi. pickle them. That should give you some food for thought...!
  2. The waterfall pics are absolutely magical. I can only imagine the tranquility one would find in that setting. Waterfalls have always been a favourite of ours. On various trips we would track down a local secluded one, get a coffee (or some beverage), take our books and park ourselves right by (and sometimes in) the waterfall for hours at a time. Great shots.
  3. Love it. Beautiful. It is what we would call around these parts, an Inuksuk - a traditional monument or landmark used by the Inuits of North America. Curious if they have any history Down Under?

    "Honey, trust me, I am not sleeping on more than half of the bed, look, you have half - and I have half.....But darling, look at all that meat which is clearly on MY half of the bed!" (I have heard this one in various incarnations over the years!)
  5. Like Ken said, that looks like either over (see; root rot) or under watering. It could also possibly be blight, though the spotting is not that dark brown....did the other veggies suffer a similar fate? You can try to get blight resistant veg strains.
  6. Inherited from my grandfather - Because every good Polish/Israeli Jew needs a honkin Chinese cleaver!!
  7. Looking forward to this @shain - thank you for taking the time to share and take us along for the journey. From my limited experience taramasalata usually has little discernible fish eggs in it - my grandmother, (Austrian/Israeli descent, not Greek; mind you) used to make it with flying fish roe. Was sooo good!
  8. No need for apologies! Life is tough for everyone right now and little things can easily set us off (which previously would never have). I think over the last 24 months we have all had our fragile moments (I sure have) and it impacts everyone differently. Kudos to you for being able to identify whats going on - many would simply internalize and continue on. Oh, and another fun Canadian-don - I have had numerous people in various travels around the world ask if we live in Igloos and eat seals/polar bears. Go figure
  9. In agreement with Duvel and hoping others realize that the OP had no ill intent in their post. If we cannot find humor in food traditions (or even atrocities - see; doughnut encrusted deep fried burgers and the like :shudder:), especially in this day and age when the tone is so serious out in the 'real world' - then I believe some fresh air is certainly in order! As a proud Canadian, you are welcome to stereotype us with our poutine, maple syrup, fried beaver tales, back bacon, raw seal blubber, etc etc etc - I take no offense. In fact, in all humor there are slivers of truth. O

    This looks REALLY good. Love the layers of flavours that one can enjoy in Indian cuisine. Can you share more about the Kale Tomato Saag? I have some Swiss Chard growing that I might have a go at this dish with....

    Dinner 2021

    Got a call from my local Japanese fish guy, he knows I love kanpachi collars and they just got in a very large wild whole fish and asked if I wanted him to save them for me (it pays to make friends with people in the food industry!) - what a guy!! Big ones but sooo good! Wild ocean trout sashimi as well.
  12. Both plants look quite healthy @liuzhou albeit a bit mangled due to endured shipping bondage 😝 Surely garden related, I bring forth the rock balancing challenge (something we have started around here for fun) - A while back I saw a video of a lady somewhere in Europe balancing huge gorgeous rocks above the surface of a lake which inspired me to try it and while not easy certainly possible to get some very unique set ups...who’s in?! 😉

    Inspired by a suggestion from @liuzhou - I expanded slightly on it.... Not much to look at (besides a bit of yolk porn) but....certainly tasty! Hash browns, with Lions mane mushroom steaks and a fried egg. Little chicken jus and fresh picked spinach.

    Never seen dried whole Lion's Mane. From what I understand they are often used for medicinal applications (all of the 'brain boosting power' of this mushroom is purportedly best consumed in a dried ground form). Fortunately these are from a local 'gourmet' mushroom farm which will be able to supply year round. Good idea with the fried egg, might have to try that one.
