Oh, shit, I guess I tagged myself. I warn you all: don't expect any gourmet tap-dance.

Okay, yesterday, Monday, August 25:

vitamin pills, with instant iced coffee (Bustello dissolved in boiling water, ice cubes, water, and skim milk. No Sweet 'n' Low this time)

1 Le Petit Ecolier 70% Extra-Dark Chocolate-covered cookie

Lots of tap water (mmmmmmmm, NYC water)

"Lunch" (around 3pm): salad with balsamic vinaigrette, left over from Saturday's dinner, kind of limp but not yet slimy, with some kasseri cheese microplaned on top, and freshly ground black pepper.

Dinner:

Only one glass (!) of La Gitana fino sherry

Lamb and artichoke stew out of the freezer, plus chickpeas (canned :shock: ) and artichoke paste.

Potato-plantain spatzl (how's THAT for fusion? :raz: ), also from Saturday.

Stir-fried green Swiss Chard

The ever-present salad, with doctored Marie's Feta Dressing (extra feta, oregano, dill, and yogurt)

1/2 of the bottle of Wagner (Finger Lakes) 1998 Cabernet Franc

That's it. HWOE finished off the Lychee and Lime sorbet that Rachel and Jason brought to the potluck, but I was too full.

OOOh Where did you get the Kasseri from? I've been trying to find some outside Greece for ages

You have trouble finding it? I'm really surprised. I'm used to seeing it in all kinds of cheese stores, and even some supermarkets. I'm in lower Manhattan, and do a lot of my shopping at a supermarket/gourmet store called Jubilee. They and another similar place nearby have some decent cheeses, if you don't mind them pre-cut and shrink-wrapped.

Mmm, I was thinking about that one just the other day. Note to self: Get ahold of some lychees.

I just got some kasseri the other day and wanted to flame it and say OOOPPAAAHHHH but I chickened out.

Can you saute it up like haloumi?

:huh:


I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.

Suzanne, remind me what HWOE stands for again?

I think it stands for He Who Only Eats.

I've got one of those, too.

While we were standing in his kitchen the other day, I told him I was going to buy him a fabric cover for his range, like the kind you put on fancy cars in the winter time.

He has a brand-new range that has never :huh: been used.


Noise is music. All else is food.

Yes, NeroW is correct. But really, it is unfair of me to call him that. He is the salad maker par excellence (mainly because he eats 4 times as much of it as I do, so it's his job :raz: ) and the ne plus ultra of oatmeal cookers. Oatmeal he learned from his father -- thick, dry, and chunky :wub: -- rather than his mother -- wet and slimy :angry: . I mean the style of oatmeal; not his parents themselves. And he's the house sommelier.

But to continue the blog: While out taking a walk and doing errands, I took in :wink: chicken onigiri from Daikichi, and a few "chicken fritters" (breaded fried slices of chicken breast) from Jubilee market. (As I just said on the Les Halles thread, I love chicken.) Then when I got home, a big glass of grapefuit juice cocktail, the kind with other fruit juices instead of sugar-water. And more NYC DEP 2003 (our house name for water).

Mmm, I was thinking about that one just the other day. Note to self: Get ahold of some lychees.

Doesn't it seem that lychees are in season so much longer this year? Is it because they're growing them in Florida now???

Onward to dinner! (I'm not really a snacker, nor a dessert eater, as you'll see.)

Just wondering where all these "food blog" topics came from. Was there a writing contest assignment i missed?

Ahh, cool. This particular phrase had me giggling for a good few minutes, and then again every time I thought of it:

"accompanied by an obviously expensive California chardonnay that tasted like having a stick of butter jammed into your mouth and getting it whacked down your throat with a freshly cut oak stump"

Thanks, Fat Guy.

And of course, Malawry's blog. I could never forget that.

The thread that was linked to me when I asked where the food blog trend started. It was fat guy's blog. Sorry I didn't properly quote it but I don't know how to quote from a different thread.

Possibly what five as well.

Tommy's simply ticked off because he missed a lap-dance reference.

Elyse: Ask all the questions you'd like (this is eGullet, after all!). Watch out for some of them answers, though.

      Hello again from south of the equator!  As you may or may not have heard (because the international news media isn't really giving the situation much coverage), Ecuador is in the grip of a major social protest movement.  This started on October 1, when fuel subsidies in the country were abruptly struck causing the prices of gasoline and diesel to more than double overnight.  Transport and heavy haulage unions immediately went on strike, and blocked the main roads of the cities with their vehicles in protest.  The indigenous movements of the central Sierra, beginning in my province, Tungurahua, joined the strike on October 2, and the President quickly declared a State of Emergency that restricts movement, freedom of the press, and freedom association.  The indigenous took over the road blockades on October 3, cutting the cities off from the world; Ambato became an island overnight.
       
      It is now October 8, one week into the blockades.  Shortages in the fresh markets and supermarkets began on Sunday, as people realized that we were in for a long-haul of protest and possibly an overthrow of the sitting government.  Ecuador's indigenous have a long history of deposing governments in this way, and it's not a fast process.
       
      I'll be blogging informally throughout the National Strike, to document how the inevitable food shortages affect the city and my own table. 
       
      These first pictures are from Sunday, October 6.  In the Mercado Mayorista, a place I've always taken you along to when I've blogged from Ambato, the cement floors of the naves are visible in places where they have never, in my experience, been exposed.  The fresh corn nave is all but abandoned - this is because all of the corn in the city's stock has been sold.  I'll remind you: a nave in this market is about a thousand square metres of space.  This is also missing the big trucks that come to trade fresh grains in the parking lot, because they couldn't make it through the roadblocks.  Most of the Mayorista is in the same situation - stocks are selling off fast.

       
      The supermarkets are even more dire.  The meat coolers are completely empty, and the produce shelves are diminishing quickly.

      @Alleguede and I are in the lounge at Pearson awaiting our flight to Vegas for the IBIE (International Baking Industry Exhibition).
       
      I got the usually bomb sniffing swab done on my electronics - @Alleguede got the 3rd degree at customs. Anyone know what a carnet is? I believe I got that lecture the last time.
       

       
      Made myself a little cocktail, Maker's Mark, Grand Marnier, vintage port. I've had better! 
       

       
      Not a lot of choices to eat since it's rather late (not that earlier would have helped) - they also have pasta salad, Italian Wedding soup, Cream of mushroom soup, corn chips and salsa. There appear to be some cookies there as well. I'm trying to low carb as much as possible so I'm avoiding most of it.

      Host's note: the initial title of this thread was "Swarvin' in ???"  as a teaser.  Once the destination was identified as Newfoundland, the title was changed to reflect this.  The initial comments were based on the ??? In the title.
       
       
      And we'll soon be off.......culinary adventures to follow.

      Some of you may recall that in 2016 I had a blog about our trip to Newfoundland.  We are going there again tomorrow for a week, returning July 1 and I thought that since we are going to, and eating at, places different from that year, I would do another blog.  When I booked our flights and accommodations (7 places in 8 nights) last February, June 23rd seemed like a long ways away.  Yet here we are, about to leave.   I hope some of you will follow along as we travel through the province.
