  1. One, 100 calorie Cape Code chips bag. A ton of furikake tossed in.
  2. The McRib is back. I had my first bite of one, ever. The bite I had didn’t have pickles or onions and it wasn’t bad for fast food. I just don’t like McDonalds’s BBQ sauce. My husband ordered it (and had the rest) and felt the onions were a bit much. I thought they’d be chopped and they were larger slices. I can cross that off my bucket list 🥴
  3. I’m in awe of all the work you guys are doing! I never really ate turkey much growing up— we had it but my dad is allergic to all forms of poultry so I’d either eat Prime Rib or later split lobsters with him. Eventually we took to going out for thanksgiving. My parents are too scared of COVID and rightfully so (my husband goes to PT twice a week) so we are alone this Thanksgiving. St. Louis style ribs will be smoked on the BGE. Sides tbd. I will make a charcuterie platter for watching football while the ribs smoke.
  4. @liamsaunt what a bummer. I had the opposite experience today— my Instacart delivery had everything I asked for with two proper substitutions. I scheduled it for the first delivery time possible and made sure to communicate with my shopper but I was still shocked I got what I wanted. I’ve found it varies depending on the grocery store. I ordered mine from a smallish higher end store, Kings.
  5. @JoNorvelleWalker I have the same brand of olives. Sometimes they last me two days. They’re my favorite. Although in my fridge the olive oil in the jar does congeal a bit.

    Thanks! Yup those are the potatoes. Worth a try!

    Dinner 2020

    I mix 15 oz of ricotta with two eggs and make sure to spread it all over the noodles with great success.

    Dinner 2020

    Yup my husband is a California guy born and raised. I met him on his second day in Jersey and well... Tonight we will still enjoy our anniversary dinner. I bought a lot of chaructiere that I am eating alone now, watching the game (it’s better than my NY Giants). I have some great aged Gouda— I love the salty, crunchy pockets and some salami and some great crusty bread. the potatoes I bought from Wegmans. They are frozen and precooked and seasoned and get crispy outside and super melty in the middle. Highly recommend

    Miss Maisey has a hacking cough. It’s upsetting; she had emergency stomach surgery from over eating leaves in the past (to the tune of 12k) but we watch her like hawks so who knows? She loves baby cucumbers, shelled edamame, zucchini, baby corn and sugar snap peas. Cal is U of Cal Berkeley, where my husband was in the marching band and graduated with a chem degree.

    Dinner 2020

    King crab legs, snow crab claws with roasted French green beans and melting baby potatoes. Omg I am stuffed. Early wedding anniversary dinner (our anniversary is on Monday but I never know how long of a day my husband may have and Miss Maisey has xrays at the vet that day). I also bought a bunch of charcuterie which went untouched so that will be lunch during football tomorrow (Cal’s first game is at noon EST).

    @Franci Naples should have some really good grouper and stone crabs. When we stay in the area we go to Goodland (small island off of Marco) for very fresh fish. I am super jealous. But beware— it’s the land of Lily Pulitzer and Tory Burch.
  14. I’m tempted to use the Mama noodle “oil” packet and flavor packet to boil the rice in. I really like the Nisheki rice. I really want to try making onigiri since I used to make it often when I was a teen. Plus, yum! Hmm. I think I have dried nori sheets in the pantry. A good super late night snack.
  15. My local Wegmans has pitted Castevetrano olives. They’re my favorite. The non pitted ones have a much creamier flavor imo but these are still good.
  16. Oh. Maybe I can use jasmine.
  17. Thanks! I have a lot of Nishiki rice as well as Jasmine on hand. I’m thinking no to the jasmine though.
  18. Does the type of rice matter when making congee? This looks like comfort food to me and I’d love to make it.
  19. I’m glad this tread was recently posted and caught my eye. I have been reading old blogs here and @snowangel posted about MAMA Thai noodles. I dipped my toe in with the basic “chicken flavor” and didn’t use the chili packet as I’m a spice wimpy but I’m a fan. The noodles are superior and the flavor is good. And MAMA has so many flavors— I bought a 10 pack for about $10 on Amazon. I recommend it.
  20. Idk it’s that expensive. It’s basically a KA with a grinder attachment so about $350-400. Not cheap but not $800.

    @Franciif you will be in Southern Naples— visit Marco Island if you can. Excellent restaurant there— Fin Bistro. https://finbistro.com

    Filets, baked potatoes, steamed broccoli with bernaise.

    Dinner 2020

    Dinner tonight was all done on the BGE. Two dozen little neck clams )all of them opened!), teriyaki shrimp skewers and fresh sugar snap peas. a bit chilly but worth it.
  24. It will just be my husband and I. My parents have made it clear they’re uncomfortable coming to our home or vice versa and I get it. Plus my dad’s allergic to all forms of poultry. So turkey probably won’t be on our menu. I think we will depend on the weather and our local butcher. If the weather is nice, we will smoke and grill. If it’s not? Well there’s a ton of football games so I’ll try out my air fryer wings, puff pastry pizza with some bacon wrapped scallops and some type of potato!
  25. How is it, in terms of reading? Similar to DDR or more of a cook book, less than a personal one, if that makes sense?
