Here's the Basque Cheesecake - baked 450º F in the Blumlein on convection setting for about 35 min.

Has anyone in the NYC area tried asian-veggies.com?  The prices are on the expensive side (compared to what I can get at my local H-Mart) but if I didn't live within walking distance of one with a decent selection, I'd consider them...  I'm curious as to the quality/freshness of their produce.

I had been craving some comfort food and decided on corned beef hash but using smoked meat brisket instead of corned beef.  Took a trip to Costco the other day for the brisket which is made by Schwart'z, the Montreal emporium of smoked meat.  The picture is for @rotuts.20210203_162630.thumb.jpg.caa9993fde260fadd2702eb7f1da1aea.jpg

For sandwiches I'll steam the meat but for hash it just gets chopped and heated through with everything else.

"2021 just got worse: Now there's a Grape-Nuts shortage"

 

 

All of you Grape-Nut fans, rejoice...

"Grape-Nuts will be back on shelves in March"

Quote

The Grape-Nuts shortage that ground an already on-edge nation to a halt has been resolved.

Grape-Nuts will start shipping at normal levels by mid-March, its parent company Post Consumer Brands said Thursday, putting an end to a weeks-long shortage sparked by supply chain constraints and higher demand.

"We promised our loyal fans that we would work hard to get Grape-Nuts back on store shelves as quickly as possible, and we are now committing to an earlier-than-anticipated return date," said Kristin DeRock, Grape-Nuts' brand manager, who added that the company has ramped up production of the cereal.

The Pessimist in me says this was all a publicity stunt to get more people interested in the cereal.

I can't imagine any sort of "higher demand" for Grape-Nuts, of all things.

Unless Grape-Nuts are 2021's version of the yeast deficit from 2020. :D

For the last week or two I've seen a school bus, that didn't seem to be a school bus, parked near my apartment.  Today I learned it is a food bank distributing things like milk to the residents.  I said I was OK.

 

I forgot to ask if they had limes.

Fridays are a great day because we get our vegetable delivery, shown in the basket to be washed and processed. The next pic speaks for itself and then there is the wheat bread and another with assorted seeds like flax. We cut in half, freeze, and eat throughout the week.

Regarding Grape Nuts, they were fully stocked at Wegmans last night, both Post brand and the “house” brand.

Glorious!    Cheesecake is my all time favorite breakfast food.    At cheese chops in France, I always look for the cheesecake which they sell by the (generous) slice.   Room service coffee and cheesecake = a perfect start to the day.

I was grocery shopping at my local Walmart grocery store this past Saturday. 

I didn't blink an eye that the Easter candy was already out and sitting next to the Valentine's Day candy.

However, they had cases of Corned Beef briskets for sale (notice I didn't say they were "on sale"...no sale prices to be found on the Walmart briskets).

I was shocked that they're selling them now given it's more than a month until St. Patrick's Day. :o

I'm craving corned beef.  We have a venison roast that we could do....but I'm just a lazy ass now...I hope to get over it.

If you have the carrots, cabbage and potatoes (and the pickling spices for the roast), you're good to go.

As I've posted before on eGullet, I do mine in a slow cooker and it couldn't be easier.
