  1. Making my first attempt at congee. I had dental work done today so it seems like the ideal time.
  2. My Cuisinart is a 7 cup model. Would you still use it? I’ve actually never tried it. 🙈
  3. I have a surplus of scallions and was considering using some of them up with this recipe: https://www.justataste.com/easy-scallion-pancakes-with-soy-dipping-sauce-recipe/ I was wondering if I could use my kitchen aid mixer instead of my extremely large food processor since the KA mixer is an easier clean up. Any advice? Any other suggestions for how to use up scallions?
  4. This is simply awful news. We had plans to have lunch once covid ended. She and her family are in my thoughts. I am too saddened by this loss to elaborate how kind she was properly.

    What do I know? I don’t have kids and barely have a husband.

    Breakfast 2021

    @Ann_T I am desperately thinking of how I can make a very inadequate version of Moe’s breakfast!

    @Kim Shook I could have sworn in your blog you tried one of their chicken wraps? I’ll re-read it, it’s one of my favorites (your blog not the wrap)!

    Hell no! I’d happily spend the money elsewhere.
  10. So my calming non medical concept is watching AWE which is a “wealth network”. 99.9% of the time I am thanksgiving I am home. But this channel is my crack. they endlessly show commercials for this Brava cooking “system”. It uses light. It’s a grand. I can’t fathom how it works properly.
  11. I also have puff pastry that should be used. Can I use it to make. Beef Wellington? With a mushroom duxelle (I will need advice)?
  12. That’s rough. But at least you asked so you should NOT feel poorly as you asked him. My inlaws know I don’t like turkey. I’m fine with it in a sandwich or only on Thanksgiving but I don’t like it, and didn’t grow up with it. We do steak when my inlaws are here or when they aren’t. My father is allergic to poultry. But yes, in normal years I have to eat Turkey for at least a few meals regardless of the holiday. I usually drop a few lbs during those holidays. Edit: I recognize this sounds extreme rude. But I won’t apologize for disliking turkey. It’s boring to me and not part of my childhood experience.

    Dinner 2020

    Meh. Homemade lasagna.
  14. What do you think “whole cloves” mean here? I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for months and just got high quality stew beef to do this with.
  15. Nair? seriously though that scared me too!
  16. I may not be making much for Christmas but I draw a line at Taco Bell. That would be seriously depressing.
  17. Yes, on Christmas Eve, it is traditional for Italians to do the feast of seven fishes. It’s pretty freaking awesome. Calamari, smelts, shrimp, octopus, flounder, seafood salad, clams and mussels and more. I miss it. Half the time we are with my inlaws for xmas so I haven’t been able to participate in a while. Freshly made pasta... the Italian side of my family can cook well and prepare huge feasts for holiday.
  18. It’s just my husband and I. So I think I may order stone crabs from local 130 in NJ for xmas eve. I really am apathetic about this holiday. I miss my parents and inlaws. I already gave my husband a big gift— the new Apple 6 series Hermes watch. He has afib and the newer model takes your blood oxygen levels and does an EGK. I won’t go to a grocery store so I’ll have to rely on Insta cart. Maybe we will do fondue. next year I really either need to use my Instant Pot and Anova or get rid of them.

    Lunch 2020

    Now I really want a hot dog.
  20. I use Pat La Frieda mostly as gifts and I do purchase it occasionally, I live in northern Nj. I use Local 130 for seafood 99% of the time: https://www.local130seafood.com the other one percent I buy little necks from Kings. Green Village butcher is where we buy our meats. Really great items.
  21. @Paul Bacino personally I don’t recommend jumbos. But Local 130 ships nationally and has stone crabs along with tons of great products. https://www.local130seafood.com

    Dinner 2020

    Those TJ latkas are really good. I wish I had the balls to go to a grocery store.
  24. Don’t get wrong, I would have eaten one or at least split one, it was decent. But I am not giving up my McNuggets and fries for anything!
