  1. @KennethT tonight my husband made one of his go to bachelor meals. About 2lbs or 12 bone in, skin on chicken thighs. 5-8 peeled bulbs of garlic. Place it all in a large casserole dish and pour in enough soy sauce to cover 3/4th of the chicken. Cook, covered at 325 for 40 minutes. Flip chicken, cover again and cook for 20-25 minutes more. Then remove, flip again (top side up if that makes sense) and remove foil and cook at 350 until the garlic is basically caramelized so about 20 minutes. Served with Nisiki rice from the rice cooker. It’s easily to adjust the flavors with say, some chili oil or fish sauce, sugar, etc. but it’s simple, it makes the house smell amazing and it’s good.
  2. @Shelby have you tried chewy.com for dog food?

    Dinner 2020

    @Kim Shook those noodles in the soup look amazing. Did you make them? Buy them?
  4. I’d buy it. I just tried their breakfast this morning. Pretty good and I’ve yet to try the chicken biscuit.
  5. I never bothered to try. I didn’t get much help so I figured why bother. But thanks for thinking of me. Some of these threads are overran by people and I’m not about to fight for answers in a message board.
  6. Just mustard. Mainly at Mets games back in the day, now the food available at Citifield is bougie. But yea just with a nice mustard. It’s a hotdog.
  7. they’re actually having a wine dinner at Bartholomew on 3/14. We won’t be in Sonoma at that time, kinda bummed.
  8. @weinoo thanks for the recommendations especially the dispensary. I use delivery (via Eaze) while in SF. More on topic, I have been eying the girl and the fig in downtown Sonoma. Now I’m going to research restaurants by the SPARC. We will have a car.
  9. I have a 9pm reservation at Gary Danko for March 14th. It was, when I called three weeks ago, the earliest reservation. Which should be about 12am for us but, I anticipate on sleeping 90% of the flight to SF. Plus then, since we are staying by the Wharf (I wanted to change it up) means we can snack and sample and walk then nap and have a nice dinner. While GD isn’t the best restaurant I’ve been to, their format is absolutely the best for me. I cannot eat a full three course meal— I generally don’t have a sweet tooth and appetizers and seafood on their menu always entice me. I have a rental home in Sonoma about 3 miles from the center of town. Any restaurant recommendations? I’m considering hiring a chef to come to the house on my birthday (my 40th and st Patrick’s day) since we will be spending the day touring wineries and I know I will not want to get dressed and go out.
  10. I had a dental cleaning yesterday. My Chinese American dentist is busy and not dealing with paranoid, racist idiots affecting her business. That said? We ordered from the local diner. We do live in Northern Nj and diner food was easy on my poor mouth.
  11. Thanks. The Anova app is saying one hour at 150 for medium well. Why less cooking time with the app?
  12. 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!)
  13. @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.
  14. 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!
  15. I’m going to go grocery shopping tomorrow and will also order items to be delivered. Think stupidly simple.
  16. 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:
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. @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!
  22. 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.
  23. This meal was surprisingly decent. We had the short ribs.
