    For a small amount of dough I would use my Cuisinart food processor over the KitchenAid.


    Scallions?  Never underestimate Momofuku ranch.  (Which as it happens is tonight's dinner, along with Romain and organic Campari tomatoes.)



     My Cuisinart is a 7 cup model. Would you still use it? I’ve actually never tried it. 🙈

    What kids dribble fruit mento saliva onto the floor? I missed the meaning I think.

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

    Interesting.  Is @Jason Perlow still a PC Mag editor?  Perhaps he can report back.  (They still owe me for my subscription dollars.)  Or maybe @MetsFan5 will take one for the team!


    Hell no! I’d happily spend the money elsewhere.

  4.   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.

    Just dropping to post that the protein for Christmas dinner was roast leg of lamb. After the meal my son-in-law commented that he doesn't actually care for lamb. He thought the lamb was ok. The big shock was that we've served him lamb a few times over the last several years and he's never told us he doesn't care for it. In our family we like knowing food preferences (which he knows) so his never having mentioned it before was a surprise. 


    My Sweetie made chunky apple sauce using a recipe where you bake the apples.  It was very good. Everything else was dishes that we all like, including a sesame green bean dish we've done for ren faire for several years but never fixed at home before. 

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    Hot dog with melty American cheese, extra dark pretzel splits with honey mustard, and tiny sweet pickles:


    Now I really want a hot dog.
