  1. @dcarch @Anna N Anna is correct, I don't watch entire shows on this TV. It's not a bad angle because I'm looking at it while standing up. Also it has a Pandora app, a lot of the use is for music
  2. One addition to the kitchen. Finally found a utility cart at IKEA to house the CSO and Instant Pot. Now they're off the countertop and everything looks cleaner. I collect aprons as souvenirs and decided to hang them up behind the CSO. I know fire hazard. Will roll the cart out to use the CSO. Just got a new apron from Silver Oak winery in Napa this weekend. Some others are from Paris, London, Cinque Terre, Culinary Institute in Napa, Florence, Telluride and Salty's Restaurant in Seattle.
  3. Biba has a restaurant in my city. She's had it for 31 years. http://biba-restaurant.com/about-biba She's usually in there every day. She had breast cancer a while go and I believe her public persona did lessen after that. I did see her in the restaurant a few months ago.
  4. @andiesenji thank you! Then this must be my grandmother's skillet. My son ruined one of the two I had and I was never sure which was which. I also have two small 6.5 inch cast iron skillets but they are 'Wagner Ware'. Now I'm ambitious to clean up the aged beauty. Thanks again!
  5. @andiesenji this is not a thrift store find but am curious about this pan. I believe it was my mothers. Any info on the age of this would be appreciated. Hard to read but it says Wagner Sidney at the top and 8 on the lower part
  6. pulled out a hunk of pork shoulder and made carnitas in the IP. My new freezer part of the new counter depth fridge is so small compared to the old freezer space, I'm considering getting a stand alone freezer as soon as I make space in the garage.
  7. Used frozen Pesto with Pasta. Chicken breasts with Citrus. Started eating in front of the TV before I remembered to take a lousy picture
  8. @Thanks for the Crepes I feel unbelievably lucky to be able to drive to Trader Joe's, Safeway, Whole Foods and Asian, Indian, Mexican and so many ethnic groceries. I need to go more often just to enjoy my luck. Trader Joe's is the only one I go to regularly because they have my favorite wine.
  9. I was amazed at the big difference in wine prices between Toronto and my hometown. Of course I'm in Northern California where wine is plentiful, but the price was pretty much double. My lack of math skills did not allow me to truly calculate the actual difference. And I was in Toronto two years ago so it may be different now.
  10. Pork tenderloin with pomegranate glaze, Pasta with Pesto. Broccoli with anchovies, garlic and chilies. The alliterative items, pork and pesto were from the freezer. My son's plate before and after. He and his gf did all the clean up and were pretty funny cuz they're tipsy.
  11. Enabled once again. Bought The Glorious Pasta of Italy and the Jacques Pepin books.
  12. @ElsieD I'm using the ham bone from the Christmas ham for ham and navy bean soup. Also pulled frozen pepper strips out last night for sausage and Peppers over Polenta. Forgot to take pictures of that. The peppers were from last years garden and the sausage is Aidell's chicken with apple which is always in the freezer. Even though this is the boyfriend's freezer I feel I should get points since I stocked everything in the first place. If we ate from what he put in the freezer, it would be yakisoba bowls and burgers.
  13. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    @Kim Shook have to agree with you on pork belly and bone marrow. Too much fat for me. I'm not anorexic or anything close to that but the texture is just off putting to me.
  14. I finally decommissioned the old refrigerator and freezer. The new freezer is smaller than the old one. But I did throw away a bunch of old stuff. The turkey breast still wouldn't fit in the new freezer so we had turkey breast and stuffing with homemade cranberry/orange sauce tonight. Turkey Breast and Baked dressing. That's about as alliterative as I can get with this meal. My son's plate - mine was about half that
