  1. Haven't tried the new Lay's flavors. I do like these Maui onion flavored potato chips. They're a Frito-Lay product, I believe. The chips / crisps are thicker than the original Lay's chips. There is a nice onion-y flavor.

    Looks really good, @liamsaunt . Every time I've tried to order monkfish in a restaurant, they're out of it (86'd). How does it taste, to you? (Supposed to taste like lobster, I heard.) TIA.

    Lunch 2020

    @Kim Shook, food looks great. Is that white stuff (in the cemitas) all cheese? It almost looks like cole slaw as well. Looks like some avocado (above and below the meats) and some mayo as well? TIA.
  4. Made radish emergency kimchi (quick pickle, I guess). Decided that, for this particular kimchi, I prefer non-fermented style. Refrigerated right away after making.
  5. @Shelby, I'd be interested to hear reports on the Harry and David fruit. I used to give the pears, etc., as gifts. I think I've only ever tried the pears, myself. IMO, gift recipients want to be polite and don't really tell you 100% what their opinions about the fruits. So, I'd be interested to hear honest opinions.
  6. Sounds good, @gfron1. What kinds of items are you planning to have in your "Pantry Essentials"?

    Plain roasted carrots (with oil and salt) are amazingly delicious. I don't know exactly what it is or why. Maybe the concentration of the flavor after roasting (evaporation) plus the caramelization. That plus some corkscrew pasta and feta cheese.

    Food after Dental Work

    Another vote for soft scrambled eggs. They're good with tomato soup. You can add some cheese to the eggs. Some sour cream on the side as well.
  9. Well, it's winter in the the southern hemisphere.

    Gazpacho (deseeded tomatoes) with bits of soft avocado.

    Paella--Cook-Off 31

    I've never had a paella that was made the right way, i.e., with a nice socarrat. But I'm imagining it's supposed to be like the crust on a bibimbap, the Korean rice dish.
  12. @shain, that Koda Farms Blue Star brand of mochiko flour is what my family used for making mochi things. I think your brownies will definitely be chewy. Not sure if it will be chewy in the way you want it, i.e., won't really be cakey / chewy. Should be simple, though, like you said. IIRC, that flour is not very expensive.
  13. I actually like the Thai Kitchen red curry paste. It's vegan, IIRC, no shrimp, so maybe that's why you're not a huge fan, @KennethT. I also like the Mae Ploy curry pastes in the white tub. Those do contain shrimp. Salty, though, IIRC.

    Really beautiful, @shain . Great photo.

    @Kim Shook, the crab looks excellent. I got to try blue crab in Maryland. I was more familiar with Dungeness (different crab anatomy) and I am already lazy to pick crab. However ... I really enjoyed the blue crab and I was the last one at the table still picking crab and eating. (I ate blue crab cakes as well.) So nice of you to pick crab for your family.
