    Breakfast 2019

    Yummy, wish that were my breakfast. Happy New Year!
  2. Wow! Thank you so much for this topic, Liuzhou. Fabulous idea. I just hope it doesn't do you in! 😓
  3. Gosh, wonderful video! I'll never make this (too much for one person, at least this person lol), but I'll never think of borsh the same way. Thank you so much for making the video.

    eG Cook-Off #72: Ramen

    Your photos are so helpful. Thank you for the effort to document this.
  5. I *want* the brothy stuff and lots less of the solid stuff, but it's damn hard when people don't make brothy soups to begin with but instead insist on making what I like to call sludgy soups! Ah well, good thing I know how to make soup.

    Hospital Time

    Thank you for the details of your meals. This list rings true to what I know of nursing homes. I've spent many many hours visiting friends/relatives in various nursing homes, and the food has been universally appalling. Somebody is making an awful lot of money by NOT feeding good nutritious meals, of that I'm convinced. It's a real scandal. And this business of cold sandwiches for dinner is disgusting. And you're right, nursing home patients learn quickly to horde certain items like salt and pepper and crackers. Anyway, it sounds like you are coping well with your situation -- bravo to you -- and I hope your stay in the wheelchair is short.
  7. Hi, thanks for your postings and photos, here's a small correction: The real name is "Pike Place Market."
  8. Oh, I've got this absolutely beautiful book that I've drooled over many a time! The photos are stunning. I bought it at least 20 years ago. I just hope that by the time I finally make it to Japan, they'll still have these regional bentos to take on the trains!
  9. Oh no, you've just single-handedly ruined my fantasy trip to Japan where the Japanese airline experience is fabulous but much more importantly the food is fabulous, even stunning, even if it's just simple fare in basic Economy Class! Damn!
  10. http://www.seattletimes.com/life/food-drink/the-willows-inn-to-pay-workers-149k-for-overtime-and-minimum-wage-violations/ I hope this is the right place to post this topic. I've never been here, but the article says it's the most expensive restaurant in Washington state. The article also says that this ruling by the U.S. Dept. of Labor has "implications for high-end restaurants and their entry-level workers across the country." I imagine so.

    Me too. I feel for you. I'm glad you have good nursing staff. They can make all the difference.

    Hi, sorry you're "laid up," as we say around these parts, and I hope you get home soon. In the meantime, thanks for posting this glimpse into Chinese hospital life. It's fascinating. The pork buns look great to me. Does every room have a microwave? Seems a bit odd. Maybe it's so visitors can warm up their food that they bring? Anyway, thanks for the photos and the write-up and get well soon!
  13. Hi Chris, thanks for that simple but wonderful explanation of how heat works on a pan. A small note -- I prefer to wait a few seconds for the oil/butter/fat to bubble up and then add the ingredients.
