So now I know of one place in Ontario that carries it which must mean that someone in these parts might.  Do you recall if it was a specialized brand or one of the well-known ones?

 Took me a while to get you a response but here it is.

We found it today at Marilu’s market.

$11.99, huh?  Well, at least that is for a whole pint.  Thanks for thinking of me.  We are coming that way in July for a family get-together, and I checked the distance from John's mom's place to the store.  12.5 kilometers, I'm sure we can get that in.  Along with Denninger's and the Dutch store.  May have to tack on an extra day.:biggrin:

Denninger's also carries the Sheldon Farm. Picked up a couple of bottles of chocolate milk there for half price the other day. Hubby and child made short work of them.

That's good to know although Marilu's looks as though it would be worth a visit - at least from looking at their web site.

A while back I read that Italian Alfredo is not at all like it is in America.  I saw the Italian recipe on Facebook today and gave it a try.  The sauce is only pasta water, butter and Parmigiano Reggiano. No cream.  It was lighter tasting and good except the pasta water in the recipe was too salty for my taste. I'll cut it in half next time.

Teriyaki Sous Vide Crispy Skin Magret Duck Breast

 Oh my that does look good. Today I picked up two magrets.  One is destined for duck bacon/prosciutto but I think the other one is going to get treatment very similar to yours!

Carats and Pearls

 

Corned beef is mostly fat. I am not a fat eater.

Using sous vide to cook the beef tender, so there is no need to cut cross grain. I was able to pull the corned beef to remove most of the fat and made a very traditional corned beef meal, carats :P, pearl potatoes, cabbage and corned beef.

Back home from Cuba...Shelby unfortunately the resort food was really bad. And I don't say that about much food...but it really was :( Now the food in Havana and Varadaro was delicious..flavours were good and strong and yummy. The resort was even lacking basic salt and pepper flavour and I saw something horrible in a fish dish on the first day :(

 

Back home and happy to cook again...played with some Cuban inspired flavours, Rice with lentils HAHAHHA I had no black beans in my pantry, cumin and coriander rubbed salmon and kale. F L A V O U R. 

I'm really not a food snob and wanted to enjoy the food but even the fruit was not great , it was equivalent to our Canadian winter fruit ..actually it was lesser :( BUT OMG THE OCEAN, the scenery, the all inclusive pina colada's !

Vacations are great, but it is always good to be back at the helm in your own kitchen. I grilled cubed chuck steak, that had been marinated in Korean BBQ sauce and put on skewers and grilled some blanched and marinated vegetables. I served the lot  over jasmine rice with a pan sauce gravy. It came out well.

I spotted calves liver in the grocery store yesterday and just couldn’t resist. Liver and onions with steamed sugar snaps.

 Edited to remove technology-gone-wild duplication.

I know I've made and posted this before, but it is a favourite, so no apologies.

Lean pork marinated in olive oil and lemon juice with garlic, crushed coriander seeds and chilli. Stir fried and served with rice and a simple red onion and tomato salad dressed with olive oil and rice wine vinegar vinaigrette and sprinkled with sea salt.

Damn tI do try to catch these repetitions but it’s still early in the morning.  At least that’s my excuse. I will edit it so it is fixed.

Can't have too much liver and onions.
