  1. In Canada: "Olymel S.E.C./L.P. Recalls Ready-to-Eat Ham Products Due to Possible Salmonella Enteritidis Contamination" There's a link in the second paragraph that will reveal the product label. The article contains product specifics info.
  2. Some finds from this morning's perusal... It's like trying to find Waldo in the "Where's Waldo?" books... Another William-Sonoma cookbook where it's not advertised as such. But when you use the "Look Inside" feature you see their name/logo on the first few pages. Again, just an odd thing... "The Breakfast Bible: 100+ Favorite Recipes to Start the Day" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature to see the index of recipes. Looks like both Metric and Imperial measurements. "Small Bites: Skewers, Sliders, and Other Party E

    Bastard condiments?

    "Mt. Olive Pickle Company Debuts Pickle Salsa and Dill Pickle Brine 'Juicers'" I'm not too sure about the salsa. The photo of the pickle salsa in the article looks a little too juicy/wet for dipping tortilla chips into it. Most salsas have more of a thickness to the sauce which helps it stay on the chip. If anyone spies either of these products in their local grocery stores, please take one for the team.
  4. Posted here: "Man creates new pasta shape made to hold sauce" Not a big fan of the "How much are you willing to pay to try this?" sales pitch on that web site. I'll wait until it sells on Walmart or Amazon at a decent price.
  5. An absurdly stupid question about this display of fully cooked packaged bacon: Why aren't these packages being refrigerated? I took this photo at a local VONS grocery store and have seen the same sort of non-refrigerated display of fully cooked bacon at the local Walmart Grocery store. Just because they're boxes of fully cooked bacon doesn't mean they can just sit on a store shelf at room temperature, can it? It's cooked bacon. Won't it go bad without being refrigerated? It's not like the bacon is hermetically sealed inside either, or vacuum-packed. I
  6. "FSIS Issues Public Health Alert for Raw Ground Turkey Products Linked to Salmonella Hadar Illness" Specific product codes, etc., are listed in the article.
  7. Three (or is it two?) cookbooks from the Williams-Sonoma line found this afternoon: "One Pot of the Day: 365 Recipes for Every Day of the Year (Williams-Sonoma)" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature to see recipes. Looks like measurements are Metric and Imperial. "Vegetable of the Day: 365 Recipes for Every Day of the Year (Williams-Sonoma)" Kindle Edition $2.99US (eG-friendly Amazon.com link) Use the "Look Inside" feature to see recipes. Looks like measurements are Metric and Imperial. For some unknow
  8. "Ketchup shortage hits restaurants, fast food chains across the U.S." I can see why this happened what with the line of cars at every fast food drive-thru as I drive past them. Don't people cook anymore? The article also mentions the shortage of pepperoni because apparently everyone and their mother was ordering pizza during the pandemic. I believe I did hear about the aluminum can shortage. Perhaps the customers should consider buying their libations in bottles as an alternative. Back to the ketchup...the shortage seems to be just in the restaurant packets. Thank goo
  9. I think chicken wire may have too large of openings to protect the garden from iguanas. Some could easily slip through. Which is why I think the netting/mesh would be a better option to protect the plants.
  10. Just Oregon, I believe: "FSIS Issues Public Health Alert for Raw Ground Chorizo Sausage Products Due to Possible Foreign Matter Contamination"
  11. These leapt into my shopping cart at the grocery store this past weekend. It's not my fault. @Kim Shook I'm looking at you. I do have to say the Flaming Hot powder definitely masked most of the "onion" flavor. Still, a nice snack while perusing eGullet.

    Easter 2021 April 4

    Got a small Smithfield ham from Walmart for my Easter dinner (and leftovers for the days afterwards). Served with rice and oven-roasted asparagus (a la Roasted Cauliflower) which was just a delivery system for the melted parmesan cheese I showered over the roasted spears.

    Krispy Kreme

    Two new Limited Edition doughnuts at Krispy Kreme: "Krispy Kreme Has An All-New Oreo Glaze And This Is The Best News We've Heard All Year" There's a photo of the doughnuts in the article. They certainly look decadent. Anyone willing to take one for the team and try these new doughnuts? Please report back.

    Cook-Off 60: Banh Mi

    Just stumbled across this on YouTube: A little history and humor thrown in... How To Make Banh Mi with Andrea Nguyen For those who can't stream, here is the URL: https://youtu.be/k4HA1ejw_hA
  15. Yes, this. The peas look very green...no orange tint on them. The chicken, quite orange...reminded me of Butter Chicken. And the white rice definitely has an orange tone in the shadows.
