  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.

  2. The boyfriend's chickens eggs all have similarly colored yolks.  The shells vary in colors of brown.  We were buying organic chicken food from Costco for about 8 months and then they stopped laying as much.  Switched to Scratch and Peck food from the feed store and now they’re back to producing an egg a day, all 14 of them.  All of our friends and neighbors enjoy the egg bounty and save eggs cartons for us.

  3. My son went to the bahn mi store today.  Half of the BBQ pork one was my lunch, half is my dinner with a Moscow Mule.  These are incredibly good and inexpensive $3.50 a sandwich.  No photo because  my tech mojo has vanished.  It’s been at or near 100 degrees this week and there’s not much cooking except roasting some yellow beets.  Probably for a salad with feta and walnuts.  And HB eggs in Instant Pot for deviled eggs.

  4. My daughter used to live in a duplex on  a side street of the French Laundry. I’ve wandered into the garden at night with my own glass of wine and watched the chefs thru the large kitchen windows.  It was great just to walk around Yountville and stop in for a drink and food at any of these great places.  If you are still in Napa and interested in a winery called Etude, DM me.

  5. I rarely post in dinner even though I usually make something 4 nights out of 7, especially since my adult son who lives with me always wants dinner.  So he’s working out of town and I made dinner for myself and here’s the evidence. Melissa Clark’s shrimp with eggplant, harissa and mint.  I’m sure the recipe is online but too tech challenged to link

  6. @Okanagancook  we have meals a couple of times a year with a family who does not use salt and does not put it on the table because “it's not good for you”.  For some reason, salt's partner, pepper is also not invited to the party.  I always ask for both.  These people do not skimp on sugar loaded desserts though.  Go figure.  I’d rather have my salt than dessert.

  7. Was on the fence but remembered that I have a VISA gift card that can only be used on line.  Like @kayb, I won’t add up all my enabled purchases.  CSO, Instant Pot, Anova and way too many Kindle books.  Got the 25.
