    Dinner 2021

    My kind of hot day meal!
  2. When I make twice baked potatoes, I always make at least a dozen because they freeze well. When I mash the innards, I just use sour cream and butter - no milk or cream. Add whatever cheese we have on hand and some green onions. I guess bacon is an option too, but I don't use it. Freeze them on a cookie sheet until they're solid, then store in a container or ziplock.

    Sablefish is tied with halibut for my favourite fish. My husband normally catches a lot of salmon, but after 30 years of a freezer full of salmon, I am over it. Thankfully, he has taken to smoking most of it. Now that, I like!

    I love the flavour profiles of the dishes that you post!

    Frozen meatballs are one of the few prepared foods that I buy. Meatball subs, spaghetti and meatballs, "stroganoff" meatballs, all lifesavers on "those days."

    That looks delectable! Cross rib is my go-to for pot roast.

    Charlie is a lucky fellow. Your cooking is so diverse - love the rangoon eggrolls!

    For someone who isn't inspired to cook - you do a wonderful job! I tried a new recipe for bone-in, skin-on chicken breast last night and that is about as inspired as I have been for two weeks. Fortunately for me, my husband doesn't have a big appetite when it's hot, so we are both content with salads and sandwiches type meals. Reubens tonight.

    Thanks, must have misread. If that's the four pound price that's great. I am just used to the frustration of living north of the 49th as far as availabilty to ship to Canada and sometimes outrageous shipping rates, which are sometimes accompanied by crazy tarriffs at the border. I think it's great that they are having trouble keeping up with the demand, as that means that once they get a die and a supplier figured out, it will be a successful business, always nice to see.

    I really want to try that pasta shape, but 17.99 per pound (US$, so about 22.50 Canadian) plus a 12 week wait to ship and I didn't even look into the shipping fees to Canada. I shall put it on my Christmas list!

    Fabulous! I am always impressed with the number of dishes you make for one meal.
  12. I love the idea of grapefruit - a kind of novel idea for cake. I too, often make loaf cakes in the mini pans. They are great for giving and thaw really quickly for unexpected guests.
  13. Blueberries are early and plentiful this year. Blueberry pie from my Mom's recipe. Shell is filled with uncooked blueberries and then topped with blueberries cooked with a small amount of sugar and cornstarch, water, finished with lemon juice and butter. One for dinner and two minis, one for the elderly neighbour and one to take to my Dad tomorrow. Presentation is a bit sloppy but I used more fresh blueberries than called for and had a bit of overflow. Nothing that whipped cream or ice cream won't cover up!

    How wonderful! Your Dad looks very vibrant and extremely happy (as does your son - but he always looks like the happiest kid on earth!) I long to get my Dad out of his long term care home now that restrictions are lifted, but currently cannot imagine trying to get him in to a vehicle. He is currently a "two person transfer" and that doesn't work well getting in and out of a vehicle. One of these days, fingers crossed.
  15. Yes, I have grilled romaine, but this is very delicate leaf lettuce; I'm sure it wouldn't hold up to any heat - good thought though.
