  1. Thanks. The Anova app is saying one hour at 150 for medium well. Why less cooking time with the app?
  2. Ok I’m going to give this a go. I just got a 1.28lb whole irl tenderloin from Wegmans that has seasoning on it. how do I figure out the time and temp? I have an Anova. I prefer my pork medium well and want to sear it in a hot pan after taking it out of the SV bath then serve. Does that seem like a reasonable plan? (running off to actually take the Anova out of its box!)
  3. @suzilightning I did get a gift certificate for Scaleni Fedeli. Haven’t been before so I’m excited. I actually haven’t been to Jockey Hollow yet either.
  4. I do have two kits worth on Instapot inserts so I hope I’m good there. I however loathe hard boiled eggs. And most eggs other than scrambled. I know! 🙈 At least I don’t put ketchup on them!
  5. I’m going to go grocery shopping tomorrow and will also order items to be delivered. Think stupidly simple.
  6. Ok I’m really out of my element with these gifts so if anyone can recommend which unit to start with and what to do with it, it’s much appreciated:
  7. I’ll be in Montreal in a week. I suspect my hunger could be motivated by the legality of a certain plant. The TimeOut food hall has some interesting items. Given the temperatures up there, I will need to be majorly motivated to travel more than a quarter of a mile from the hotel.
  8. We got the Jelly Belly box too @caroled I love it. I sneak a couple every day. I am at a loss between the IP, the Anova and the air fryer. Our fridge is dead and not being (hopefully) repaired until next week. So for now I’m keeping leftovers and delivery food in our much smaller fridge downstairs.
  9. I can get See’s at a good price when I got to SF, which I do between 2-8 times a year. Just let me know. I got a 6 qt Instapot with two accessory packages, an air fryer, a comfort mat for standing at the sink to do dishes, and probably a few things I don’t remember.
  10. It’s a really stupidly easy concept but for some reason, people go nuts for them, pun intended. I take a half pound of pecan halves, about 1/4 cup of butter melted. I mix the melted butter with lawrys seasoning salt and Worcester sauce, which I eye. I roast (?) the nuts mixed with the melted butter mixture in an oven at 250 for about 1.5-2 hours. I do it in a disposable lasagna aluminum tin pan. Last year in less than a week of being here, my inlaws ate 3lbs alone. My parents probably 2 and my husband at least one. I also have brought them to collegiate tail gates with great success. Strange but true.

    Lodi Trip

    @Jacksoup thanks for asking. It was embarrassingly lazy. After Cal best Stanford the night before we stopped in a very crowded downtown Pall Alto to get onigiri from Onigilly as road food. They were really good! Wine and Roses was gorgeous. Beautiful grounds with the Lodi visitors center on site so we were able to sample and by wines. They had three birds who spoke which was neat too. Then I slept for 4 hours straight, woke up and had KFC delivered and went back to bed! 🙈 we didn’t even visit a winery. We went to a nice pub for dinner the second night but really used the time to recharge and relax and enjoy being alone and with a tv!
  12. I slept through breakfast and have no regrets. We were delayed by less than 2 hours so we had breakfast at the SF Giants bar and a couple of drinks and I slept 90% of the way home. We were lucky not be delayed longer. That said they didn’t offer the “wraps” on either flights. Kinda of annoying. Those business class transcontinental flights aren’t cheap and they let economy plus use the bathrooms which meant lines and people bumping into me and waking me up.
  13. This meal was surprisingly decent. We had the short ribs.
  14. I’m flying tomorrow on United from EWR to SFO, business or first class (this flight has no distinction between the two). I called United via our mileage plus card to see if they could tell me what the meal would be. That said I will be pissed if they serve the usual “cold duck” appetizer, the basic salad (which I will eat) and the choice of fish or chicken. And our course the usual ice cream sundae. Having had laser gum reduction surgery On Monday I can’t eat a lot of things. Otherwise I’d get a nice fat burger from the airport to go. I probably should have asked for a kosher meal.
