    Breakfast 2022

    Your breakfast is amazing. I had a slice of cold pizza that my nephew brought home last night. Not complaining, I like cold pizza, but it didn't hold a candle to your sumptuous repast.

    I inherited my Nana's bean pot and have made homemade a few times. They were definitely good, but time consuming. They also call for salt pork which is not easy to find in these parts.

    I've never had cold baked beans but the idea is not unappealing to me. I like leftover pizza cold and have been known to eat leftover pasta cold as well.

    I have fig envy as well. About 45 minutes away from me, there is a large Italian population and in those neighbourhoods, almost every home has a huge fig tree. I sometimes see them in a market near me but they are about 10.00 for 6 figs. I just have to make do with fig preserves or dried figs.
  5. Our nephew is staying with us for the summer and between him and my husband, I have been making pickled onions two or three times a week. My sister gave me this great 1.89 litre jar so I filled it up today. Should last at least a week (fingers crossed.)

    I haven't made calzones or stomboli for too long - thanks for the reminder. Yours look amazing.
  7. Thanks, I have never looked into it honestly. I may now be inspired to do so. We are now once again, contemplating going over the border to grocery shop.It has been well over two years, but Bellingham WA, which is the nearest decent size US city to us, has a great selection of Mexican food and groceries, which I have been sorely missing. I realize that Hatch chilis aren't Mexican but the talk of them has got me thinking...

    Hot dogs are one the menu here for tonight. I only crave them about once a year and today is apparently the day. I only like "European weiners" so that is what I got. Probably baked beans and watermelon as sides. Sadly we will have to settle for storebought sauerkrout - I really should make a batch of my own.

    You've inspired me to get off my butt (so to speak) and order a paella pan that will work on my induction stove top. I had a great one, perfect size but it is non-ferrous.
  10. I would love to try a Hatch chili but they are undheard of in these parts, as are a lot of things you folks discuss. We are apparently in the heart of the raspberry/blueberry capital of Canada (?) but that and Chilliwack corn are all we have to share with the rest of the province/country.

    Dinner 2022

    I'm starting to look forward to cooking a hot meal again - but not yet. Cold noodle salad with grilled terryaki chicken thighs, red pepper, cucumber, carrot, red cabbage, green onion, cilantro, peanuts and a (purchased) sesame ginger dressing. As with most noodle dishes, I ended up with about twice the amount I meant to make. Our twenty-something nephew is staying with us, so I'm sure it won't go to waste.

    Fish tacos and our first local corn of the year. I think it was Kim that mentioned the Ultimate Fish Sticks from Costco. We were having some littles to visit for a few days and their mom said fish sticks were their favourite meal so... They are actually pieces of fish, not fish paste. Had some left so fish tacos it was. There is a lime crema and cilantro underthe fish, which is under the cabbage (I only had red cabbage) and pickled onions
  13. Magnificent! Flawless looking frosting and chocolaate curls and all my favourite flavours.

    Happy birthday to Charlie and wow - what a feast!
  15. That looks wonderful and cousins whom we will be visiting live in Cumberland, on Cumberland Road in fact. What a lovely garden. Will definitely check these out. Thanks so much!
