  1. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Nair? seriously though that scared me too!
  5. I may not be making much for Christmas but I draw a line at Taco Bell. That would be seriously depressing.
  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.

    Now I really want a hot dog.
  9. 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.
  10. @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

    @patti those zucchini fries look delicious!

    Dinner 2020

    Those TJ latkas are really good. I wish I had the balls to go to a grocery store.
  13. 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!
  14. One, 100 calorie Cape Code chips bag. A ton of furikake tossed in.
  15. 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 🥴
  16. 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.
  17. @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.
  18. @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).
