30km?  For pasta?

 

 

Edit:  No amazon 1 hour delivery?

 

 

 

Channeling my imaginary Italian grandmother, there is something heretical about ordering spaghetti from Amazon 1 hour delivery.

I dunno know. How much time did your imaginary Italian Grandma spend in the wilds of Australia?

You can get Amazon  hour delivery in the wilds of Australia?

I thought CCST's solution was pretty self-reliant.    Needs must.

Though in one hour I could make spaghetti.  Australia has wheat; maybe they do not have water?

Sadly not, it seems.  I just checked.  Amazon Australia offers spaghetti speedily to major cities, if one can make do with Barilla.  Delivery to "remote areas" is 2-4 days at best.

that's what they say but alas sometimes the nomenclature (always wanted to use such a high sounding word) is different depending on where you are in the world. Here, remote areas can mean a city of several thousand, maybe the distance could be 900 miles OR it could mean remote areas as in a town of less than a 100 and 3000 miles who only get deliveries weekly or monthly then only half the year by 4 wheel drive.😃

Delivery wise, for me its usually at least an extra day and I am less than 60 miles from a capital city!

Tonight's dinner: black eyed pea, kale, and potato curry over saffron rice.

I don't use Amazon for food delivery.    My MO, stockpile spaghetti before TP.

I stockpile my spaghetti from Supermarket Italy.  At least the spaghetti I don't make myself.

@robirdstx – you reminded me we need to have toasted ravioli soon.  That marinara looks fantastic.  And the later dinner of the skewered shrimp looked wonderful, too.  I love the charred edges on the onions.

 

@CantCookStillTry – lovely looking corned beef

 

@Ann_T – beautiful dumplings!  I just finished a grilled cheese snack, but I believe I could manage a half dozen of those!

 

@Margaret Pilgrim – nice looking tartar sauce.  I see dill, but what else is in it please?

 

Hot dog night -

DSCN0688.JPG.ee6f0da65a57b39da2f7cd44499fafb0.JPG

Mr. Kim’s.  Chili and cheese, kraut and mustard, beans, and asparagus.  Mine:

DSCN0689.JPG.7b1145af40e5c7f3de08d6e288c1bbcb.JPG

Chili and mustard, beans, kraut and leftover “German” green beans.

 

Went down to VA Beach to spend the day with my sister who is having some issues.  I can’t do much for her, but I can be there when my mom can bear for me to be away.   My sister is doing some weird stuff regarding food.  She’s convinced that she has eaten her way out of some of her medications.  Turns out, she basically lives on protein bars and British canned baked beans.  I offered to take her to lunch, but she doesn’t “trust” restaurant food anymore.  So, on the way home, STARVING, I decided to finally stop at Doumar’s in Norfolk – a place I’ve been hearing about for years.  A really good, basic griddle burger and fries:

Their claim to fame is that they still make all their ice cream cones with this machine:

IMG_1489.thumb.jpg.3aa32c71f6b7907c99cbfb574c03602e.jpg

So, of course, I had to wait until I was not full and could handle a cone:

IMG_1491.thumb.jpg.d8c8001f8d62099fc21c3f01a78ba84c.jpg

Good ice cream – great cone.

 

The day after that I ended up having lots of Mom issues and needed comfort for dinner.  Ham, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayo on white bread:

And Campbell’s alphabet soup:

We’ve been getting some really great citrus lately – much better quality and variety than I remember being able to get in the last couple of years.  This is a Gold Nugget mandarin:

DSCN0698.thumb.JPG.f0c5cea9259f63552fd9c282939b467f.JPG

Very intensely flavored and juicy.

 

Last night – salad:

Chicken Kiev (purchased), squash and onions for Mr. Kim, and long grain and wild rice:

DSCN0700.JPG.562b5cb3d9dc394cbb1f9361ac61d2b6.JPG

 

Tonight was Sunday, which is considered a “little Easter”.  Means we can indulge in what we’ve given up for Lent.  We gave up eating in restaurants (Doumar’s above was an aberration brought on my extreme need).  Everyone was craving spoonbread, so it was off to our favorite meat n’ threes.  Fried chicken, fried jumbo shimp, chicken fried steak, curly kale, French fries and gravy, butter beans, yeast rolls, and SPOONBREAD!

Dinner was supposed to have been @Wolfert's chicken with caramelized quinces and toasted walnuts.  It didn't happen.

 

After an hour of searching for cubeb in my spice collection, and agonizing whether voatsiperifery or grains of paradise would be a better match, I gave up and settled for a CSO chicken thigh, peas, and mashed potato.  Got the job done.

1/2 lb Rancho Gordo Vaquero beans, soaked all day. Instant Pot high pressure for 1 minute with 15 min rest, too long actually. Chopped Duck Bacon and Kielbasa, green beans, chard, various spices and the leftover vinegar BBQ sauce that I forgot for dinner the other night. DH liked it so much he gave me a compliment!

Sorry no picture.

Cubeb!

First and only time I heard of that was from Prof Harold Hill.
