Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Went to Anova's website for the first time in what seems like forever.  I had the intention to take a look at the new oven since I've been waiting like 3-4 years for it.  When I got there, a popup appeared for the precision cooker pro.  It's currently half off - reg $399 on sale for $199.  I may pull the trigger on the immersion circulator and come back to the oven another day.

Was in my local Walmart for the first time in a while, and found Medjool dates on an end cap marked down to $2/lb. So I bought two, and then today went back and got five more. That should do us for the holidays, I think.

Yesterday I threw out a bag of Medjool dates.  Food is no bargain if it's not something you are going to eat.

 

Well, we've already gotten through the first pound so...not too concerned about that.

 

In a worst-case scenario, if I felt the urge to use them up in something, I'd incorporate them into something baked or some homemade "power bars" for my mom. We go through several pounds of dates in the run of a year, though, so this isn't a stretch at all. Heck, I'm still debating whether to go back for more.

I wish I could find some out here in East Texas for a reasonable price.  I remember buying them when I lived in Tucson.  They were really good when I was hiking and camping a lot but, they also were good for all sorts of baked goods and desert themed items.  Mmm ...

We usually reserve the Medjool and Deglet Noor dates for eating out of hand, and use the inexpensive supermarket kind for baking. My mother was a fan of date squares (minor national difference in nomenclature...what Americans call bar cookies, Canadians call "squares") so the process of chopping up one of those compressed blocks of dates is a minor exercise in nostalgia for me.
