    I am in absolute agreement with @kayb on both points. And with @Smithyon when I’ll have time to read all of these

    @ElsieDthe book has a warning in the beginning about not reproducing anything without the permission of the publisher but I’m going to live dangerously.

    @Smithy dug out my copy of Seasoned with Sun. My mom put a post it stating “this is very good” on the Maxon’s Green Chile Chowder. Even though she was a great cook, I think she had the chowder at the restaurant. So I have to try that, most likely next week. After that, the Fresh Apple Nut Bread on page 82 looks good - mainly because I have a freezer full of chopped up Granny Smith apples. The boyfriend’s apple trees produced a lot this year.
  4. Ok, I’ll ask. What is it for?

    @Smithy I have that cookbook! My parents lived in El Paso and my mom gifted it to me so long ago I can’t remember the exact year. Time to get it out for a look through. All this talk about Chile Rellenos is making me want some. I made them once 40 years ago, with a Hispanic friend. I only remember that the batter started with whipped egg whites.

    Le Creuset -- is it worth it?

    I have a set of red/orange that my mother bought me about 40 years ago. I added a big braiser 20 years ago when it was on sale. Some chips on the enamel of the older stuff but it’s held up well. Bought some bakers at Tuesday Morning about 20 years ago. My son did drop a pot and damaged it. Le C will replace it for 50 or 75% off, so I did.

    DARTO pans

    @JoNorvelleWalker probably not alphabetical, my last name is a G, @HungryChris is an S. Mine was stuck in Miami customs for two days, then went to Ohio, then to California.

    DARTO pans

    I’ve decided the scratches are just scratches in the oil coating the pan, just need to clean it up and season it.

    DARTO pans

    @HungryChris mine arrived about 30 minutes ago. I had the same packaging, also had tape stating DHL had repacked. There are some scratches in the bottom of the pan. I wonder if this is normal or if It will affect use.

    DARTO pans

    @Fernwood no joy yet, has not arrived yet. Per DHL tracking it has spent the day in Miami with no estimated date of delivery.

    Another DHL e-mail says my shipment will arrive on Tuesday. Glad I’m working at home that day. About sending out the orders alphabetically, my last name starts wth G. So, maybe?

    DARTO pans

    Didn’t arrive today. Checked the DHL website and it was sent out for shipping yesterday but returned to DARTO. Don’t understand what has happened but will keep checking.

    DARTO pans

    My email was from DHL asking for my delivery preference, front door, back door, sign for it or just leave it at the place of my choice.

  17. Chum is the best looking lab ever. Well except for my yellow, long gone, lab Bailey.
  18. @mgaretzI just made your char sui pork. It’s delicious and so easy. Was too lazy to drive 30 minutes to 99 Ranch for the char sui powder but Amazon came through.

    Costco v. Amazon

    I use Costco for laundry soap, toilet paper, cat litter, some meat, leafy greens for the chickens, toothpaste and other odds and ends. I use Amazon for make up, tea, books. Even though it’s just my son and I the large pack items at Costco are useful.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    @chefmd you would love me too! I only like chicken breast although I know it’s disliked by many here. I didn’t eat meat until I was 12 or so. The family doctor told my mom I was too lazy to chew. I enjoy meat now but the texture of any fatty parts is like fingernails on a blackboard to me.
