Introductions and such .... a hearty hello from the northeast US!


Recommended Posts

Hello all-

I am looking forward to sharing gastronomical tales & explorations, growing and cooking tips & tricks, culinary 'must-trys', and just enjoying the company and musings of like-minded folks.  I am from the Northeast where growing seasons are short and winters are long.   I endeavor to continue to learn how to make the most out of my fresh seasonal produce as well as increasing my arsenal of non-repetitive meal ideas for the long dreary months from stick season through mud season.   I lean toward cooking rather than baking but having retired in December who knows what this next chapter will bring!

 

I can, freeze, and dehydrate my garden surplus.   One of my three adult 'fledgling' children is a vegetarian, trying to be vegan, enthusiast.   My vegetarian repertoire is in its infancy still but sufficient for to get by.  🙂 

 

I am also an avid flatware collector -- to increase my own sets and upgrade my young adult children's mismatched sets!  LOL  If I get overwhelmed with my collection then I will select the least of my favorites and resell that set; almost always a more robust set than when I first acquired the base collection.   

 

To that end I will post here and to the community at large my latest flatware brand which I cannot identify although I have spent a number of hours trying to do just such.   This particular flatware is a stainless set made in Japan.  There is a manufacturers mark that looks like a "G" in a diamond, or "an upside down5" in a diamond or maybe a "CI" in a diamond. Argh!   Handles taper and the top of the handle stem has a 'hatch-like' pattern; reminiscent of a pineapple. 

 

Finally, I have replaced skillets & my enameled dutch oven with cast iron as I inch back to cookware I was raised with.  Whew... guess that is it for an intro! 

It is snowing here today... as I [not so] patiently wait for spring!!

Cheers,

-sue

Welcome! You sound like you'll fit right in here. Someone else here was trying to identify a flatware a few months back...wish I could remember who it was.

Don't ask. Eat it.

Welcome to eG, @skn6131!  I'm really looking forward to your posts and comments!  As far as identifying your flatware, have you sent those photos to Replacements, LTD?  You can do it online and they are amazing.  I sent them pictures of some flatware that I inherited - the markings were really faint and impossible for me to figure out.  I got a reply within a few days and now know what the pattern is.  I really recommend them.

@KimShook:   I had looked around on Replacements, LTD a bit but it never crossed my mind to send them photo's!  Thank you for the suggestion. I will certainly do that!

This thread, maybe?

"There is no sincerer love than the love of food."  -George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, Act 1

 

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."
