    Shady Brook brand turkey breast cutlets and scaloppini are easy to find in our local Market Basket. About four slices/pound for cutlets and six for scaloppini. They are in vacuum packed trays which we try to have in stock in our protein freezer.

    An echo of the first post in this topic. Hot egg salad on Jessica's Tuscan wheat bread. Hot egg salad: hot hard boiled eggs, melted butter, salt and pepper. Note to self: in future, cut hard boiled eggs in half before microwaving.

    Recipe Bloopers

    Decades ago I had "The Encyclopedia of Chinese Cooking". It listed the ingredients before the instructions and prepended letters in sequence to each. The instructions referenced the ingredients by their prepended letter. One recipe had this (or something like this) instruction: rinse K well and set aside. Ingredient K was not mentioned again in the instructions which was probably just as well. Ingredient K was sugar.

    Nope. Four singles. I was going to do a scramble but none of the yolks broke. Thus the trip to the oven. It was brunch, sadly, no Bloody Mary.

    Leftover brown rice that was steamed in home made chicken stock fried in butter with sliced ham and eggs cooked on the induction range until the whites started to cook and then convection baked until the whites were completely set and the yolks were like pudding.

    When having apple pie in a restaurant I always ask for a slice of cheddar. I usually only get a bewildered look. When I make an apple pie I put cheddar chunks under the top crust

    Nice gear and great looking brisket. I haven't done brisket for a long time mostly because I can't bring myself to pay $8.99/# or more.

    I'm assuming you started with live fish. Did you catch them? I rank steel head lower than arctic char and above most salmon as our favorite salmonoid fishes. Char was hard to get but Iceland is now farming it. It's much more available but still pricey.

    Dinner 2021

    Magret duck breast with raspberry ginger sauce, baked sweet potato and steamed brussel sprouts for our fifth wedding anniversary dinner. I reached deep into the wine cellar for a better than average wine to serve with the duck. It was 1971 vintage purchased when I had more money than sense. As you can see, the bottle shows it's age. It has been moved six times since I bought it in the early 80's. Some of it's storage was very wet, as in flooded. The wine was great, as expected. It wouldn't have been hurt with a few more years of aging. Too bad I had only one.

    Simple dinner tonight. Bone in strip steak SVed at 120F for 2.5 hours and seared at 500F in an antique cast iron fry pan 90 seconds per side. Served with cauliflower streamed for 15 minutes. No seasoning on the steak, butter, black pepper and pink salt on the cauliflower. A glass of Los Hermanos temprenillo went well with it.

    That plate was washed down with a bacon infused bloody mary that was garnished with a slice of bacon. The waiter commented on my consistency.

    Those are the ones. The border is actually a light brown and It's only on the top of the dish. Definitely not metallic.

    You must have a different pattern as there's no gold on mine. It's a Mikasa pattern called "Fruit Panorama". It's been out of production for more than a decade. There's a thriving secondary market for the pattern, mostly for the dinner plates.
