i do a little, but not much. i like helping out when i go visit people, though.

i usually wash the rice and put it in the cooker.

otherwise, set the table. i need to cook more. when i'm home by myself i try various things, but then there's less motivation b/c doing it all for myself, not worth the hassle.

elyse, don't do that on my account. wouldn't mind working on non-burger edibles that day. and i only found out about my friend's thing yesterday.

just finished a bowl of rice krispies.

Whole, 2% or skim...?

=R=

D: 1%

the one you left out.

I have a group of college friends with which I regularly share a vacation house for the week. After years of having to buy four different kinds of milk, I buy whole and skim and let people mix their own.

What plum shape and colour because plums come in several shapes and colours? I'm guessing this unknown fruit is good since you had two? I love different fruit. Apples are so out except when cooked.

I used to have a roommate in college who would only eat cereal with half and half. Pretty sure he's dead by now :wink:

What I like even more is to just buy fancy creamline milk. That way the anti-fat people can pour skim and the rest of us can have a little fat in our milk. I, of course, derive great pleasure from pointing out that full fat milk is still only 4%, and that they're getting a lot more fat from one pat of butter than they do from an entire cereal bowl of milk. You have to drink a LOT of milk before skim versus whole makes a significant difference in your fat/calorie intake.

Another thing I like about creamline milk is that I find it tastes creamier than homogenized whole milk and yet feels lighter at the same time. This, I think, has something to do with the smaller size of the fat particles in homogenized milk and the fact that the homogenization process acts to thicken the milk slightly.

I knew a girl in high school who used to drink CREAM instead of milk. :wacko: She kept telling me how it tastes much better, but I've yet to try.

You're just eating the wrong apples... I've decided to go through the vast variety of apples available now and figure out if the modernmarketingmachine has generated anything that beats the old favorites (McIntosh and Winesap)... I'm rather liking Empires right now and they certainly fit within the tart and crunchy mold of the old favorites, actually, and the Galas just don't do much for me. There are a zillion varieties of apples out there, and finding the good ones is a fun hunt.

      Hi everybody! I'm Jake, I'm 26 and from the United Kingdom. I've recently left a career in science teaching and I really hope to pursue my true passion, food writing by becoming either a recipe developer, a food journalist, or both! I've launched my website today so thought it was a good time to get active in some online forums and say hello! I look forward to meeting and interacting with you all ❤️

      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.

    • By ElsieD
      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.
