Check the baking aisle as well as the cookie aisle.,,that's where they hide down here.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

I will never judge a tomato sandwich, but, I don't like cheese either...HOWEVER, I've never tried it.

 

I need to point out that you're both missing the lettuce part.  :raz:

I don't see the mayo on the sandwich. Mayo is critical! And I will speak up for pimiento cheese on a bacon and tomato sandwich. Lettuce is optional.

But you see this is a house divided! Misguided Kerry thinks that Miracle Whip is mayo. I on the other hand think it is a non-food product. If I asked I am sure Hellmann's would appear in the refrigerator but I use so little of it. ... It would appear on a BLT if I built it with lettuce. ( I am also capable of making my own mayonnaise but it's a little like cutting up the whole elephant for one lousy sandwich.)

So for some considerable time I have been wanting to make Boston brown bread. Yesterday I bought a can of coffee purely for the can. Imagine my dismay when I opened it and found this:

Sheesh. Who knew that coffee cans no longer had metal lids!

But I am not easily defeated:

Mixed up the dough and voilà:

This particular recipe is from the Breads volune of The Good Cook series. It will steam now for approximately three hours. Do not look for baked beans to make an appearance.

I too am a Miracle Whip girl and can not abide the taste of Hellmann's but have discovered Cain's.  It is ethereal though available in a limited geographic area.

But ... but ... baked beans and brown bread are Saturday night supper!!  And did you put raisins or dates in your brown bread?  Inquiring minds want to know.

I would love to be the kind of person who could invent a food allergy! I would tell everyone I am allergic to beans of all descriptions except green beans! Lima beans, wax beans, brown beans, black beans, white beans,…… Huge food sensitivity to them. They simply offend all my senses and you can add those silly little lentil things in there too.

I'm on your side of the Hellmans' vs. Miracle Whip debate. And making one's own is not such a production with the immersion blender....

Don't ask. Eat it.

So offended at the idea of beans I missed your question on the raisins. Yes there are raisins in there.

And, how do you pour it?  

 

 

I remember the first time I saw when I lived in Canada.  I had the same reaction everyone does, but it really makes so much more sense than the huge gallon jugs.  We had a little milk pitcher and a little doo dad for cutting off a small piece of the corner of the bag.  The milk just flowed out in a steady stream.

Oooh, that tomato pudding looks absolutely scrumptious.  

 

Boy howdy.  How have I missed the recipe before now?  Time to break that book out again, and see what else I've been missing.

Breakfast. Boston brown bread, really nice cream cheese and lots and lots of pepper to jolt the taste buds back to life.

Thanks!

 

It does look delicious.

 

Is there any reason why one shouldn't peel the tomatoes?  I'm not a peel fan.

No reason that I can think of. Be careful with quantities here. Try to find a DEEP pan and even so put it on a baking sheet to catch any overflow.

      I'm a Brit. I'm also a closet Frenchman.  To cap it all, I'm happily retired in Bangkok, the city of a street food culture that's second to none. The Thais are healthy and slim. I'm just this side of alive and far from slim. Lockdown has me fantasizing about my days working in London, Paris and New York, an existence, if one could call it that, revolving around gastronomy of one kind or another. They paid me, not so very much as it happens, to do what I enjoy doing most in life. We all get to do it, but I was one of a fortunate few who made it his metier. Well all that's in the past now, but I still dream of my time in Paris when lunch was a tad short of 2-hours, little-known local bistros remained affordable until the day they were discovered by La Bible (Michelin Guide) and the students were revolting - this was the summer of '68, for heaven's sake. Someone should open bistro here in Bangkok with a table d'hote of Soupe a l'Oignon gratinee, Blanquette de Veau, a stinky Epoisses and Tarte Tatin to finsih with creme fraiche. Ah, it's back to lockdown and pad Thai.

      I was thinking of doing a food blog of my recent trip through parts of New Zealand's south island.  Most of the food we had was nothing spectacular, but the experiences and various scenery we had over the trip were amazing.  Is there any interest in this?

      It's one o'clock on a warm summer's day in Florence, I'm on my way to get ingredients for lunch. The sun is high in the sky, the cobblestones are warm under my feet and the aroma of something delicious is in the air. My mind starts to drift to the onions, celery and tomatoes I need for my pasta sauce, oh and don't forget something sweet for dessert...this truly is la dolce vita.
       
      My thoughts are soon interrupted by an unwelcome "chiuso" sign on the door of my new favorite deli. The blinds are closed and the friendly owners are nowhere in sight. The reality of having my favorite pasta dish for lunch was slipping further and further away.
       
       
      What a nightmare! How can this be?
        A local passing by must have noticed my frustration.   "Signorina, è riposo. Tutto è chiuso!"
        Of course! How could I forget about the sacred Italian siesta?
        A siesta or riposo, as most Italians call it, is a time of rest. This time is usually around midday, or the hottest part of the day (very inconvenient if you're craving a bowl of pasta.) No one can really say where the tradition of the siesta originates, but many say it's all about food (no surprises there really).
        For many Italian families the main meal of the day is lunch. This heavy meal in the middle of the day is attributed to the standard Mediterranean diet: A minuscule breakfast of a coffee and pastry , a heavy lunch and an evening meal around 10 o'clock. The logic is that after such a heavy meal one would surely be drowsy and need to rest, no one can work efficiently on a full stomach!
        Post offices, car rentals, supermarkets and even coffee shops (in some smaller towns police stations too) all close their doors for a riposo. Everything comes to a standstill as every Italian goes home to kick of their shoes, enjoy a homemade lunch with family and bask in the Italian sunshine for three to four hours. This is serious business. One would not dare work for 8 hours straight. After their riposo most businesses open again around 4 o'clock and stay open till 7pm. Its the perfect balance between work and play and does wonders for your digestive system!
        "Grazie!" I thanked her for the reminder. The midday sun started to become unbearable. The streets had cleared with only a few tourists braving the midday heat still around. I thought about the strawberries I bought from the market earlier that week. Strawberries for lunch on my shaded balcony and maybe a nap afterwards sounded like my perfect riposo. The pasta will have to wait till 4.

      OK.... here we go again!!!  While this post is a bit premature (we don't take off until around 1:30AM tonight), I am extremely excited so I figured I'd just set up the topic now.  As in previous foodblogs, I may post a bit from time to time while we're there, depending on how good my internet connection is, and how much free time I have... but the bulk of posting will really get started around July 9th - the day after we get home (hopefully without too much jetlag!!!)

      Happy New Year!  I'm sitting at the gate waiting for my flight from Saigon to NYC connecting through Taipei so I figured this would be a good opportunity to get started... But this is just the intro- the rest will gave to wait until I land about 22 hours from now, sleep for about 12 hours, then get my photos in order! We had a great week enjoying beautiful weather, taking in the frenetic yet relaxed street life and eating some amazing local food...
      Our flight here was on EVA Airline and was very pleasant and uneventful. Our flight from Nyc to Taipei left around 12:20 AM on the 24th. I love those night flights since it makes it very easy to get a decent amount of sleep, even in coach. EVAs food is quite good eith both Chinese and western choices for dinner and breakfast, and they came through several times with snacks such as a fried chicken sandwich with some kind of mustard. I think I had 4 of them!
      Once I get home, I'll continue posting with pics from our feast in the Taipei airport.... Spoiler: those who have read my Singapore foodblog from July may see a slight trend...
