Eek! Quick pre-dinner disclaimer:

Fresser is NOT a freak in a bad way, a good way! He's an eGullet institution! How cool is a guy who asks you within a half-hour if your husband knows how lucky he is? How cool is a guy who gets you kicked out of Starbucks at Nieman-Marcus for making you (and himself) laugh too hard?? Or who reminds the cab driver to take good care of you ...

No pantyhose were purchase, btw. He's a pretty tall guy. :smile:

Anyway, I just wanted to add that bit.

Fear not: those of us who've read Fresser here knew what you meant. I'd still like to hear the story! (Maybe himself will pipe up with his version?) :biggrin:

Oh, Fabby, I'm having such a good time reading your blog! I'm really having an off day, my kiddle made a meal that I am regretting eating even before we eat it. I am forced to buy her every food magazine known to man and yet tonight I get an oven baked piece of chicken and some steamed FROZEN veggies, plain. Can you send me some of the scraps you've been saving since JeanLuc went on a diet, please? :raz:

Ciao Ms.Babe!! When I'm not here in the "Old Country", we live in Katonah. This will be fun for me to see the area thru your eyes!

Short story: if you plant the squash too close to the zucchini you get what you see above. I remember my mother staring in despair at bright yellow cucumbers that had 'copulated ' with the nearby yellow squash, and saying, "But this is a Catholic garden...you can't do that!"  :laugh:

Ciao to you too, Hathor! We're neigbors. Lots of our friends in NY have houses in Katonah. It's really the sticks, but don't tell Angela Alaimo :raz: !

I told my son your squash theory -- he found it very amusing. Here's what he wore to school today:

gallery_28661_3538_8375.jpg

He's got his mamma's snark! :wub:

Well, we cut into the squashes:

gallery_28661_3538_40287.jpg

This one has a sweeter smell and taste, and a spongier texture. The seeds darkened noticeably within a few minutes, too.

gallery_28661_3538_28947.jpg

This one was firm and had almost no taste or smell.

There's another one just like this, growing bigger by the day. If the deer don't get it, who knows what we'll find! :laugh: Seriously, these squash and some tomatoes just started growing from the Honeysuckle he was growing in the terraced part of the yard.

These eat as good as they look, and I haven't done anything to the color or shape. They're TV tomatoes!

Now that we might have some good weather, I can get some outdoor shots of his gardening efforts.

I'm breathless waiting for the Nana wall.  And I'm hoping you tell me it's wonderful for when we do the next house.  The paper is going to do some follow-up to the original story, yes?
Yeah! The contractor part was the challenging part, but I'm thrilled with who has agreed to do the work. Then, there are those cabinets ... It's going to be gorgeous. I am thinking about doing more nanawalls, too. I just love those.
Wish I could go to the market with you and Liz, but have to work <boo>.  Maybe the two of you could drive up here and bring some treats?  I'm awfully hungry right now.

I can write you an excuse! Dear Mr. Peabody, Please excuse Angela from work today. She has a case of Fabbylizitis and needs to rest.

No, really. Glad to help.

I will never tire of hearing that my doggie is adorable. He's asleep under my desk right now, snoring softly.

Oh yeah, it's glamorama up here in the 'burbs. Who was it that sang of Westchester, "Private schools, and country club pools?" One of the Wainwrights?

Hey: here's a shot from the Chappaqua Village Market! Set in the back of the store near a wall loaded with fancy vinegars and olive oils ...

Yes! I was hoping we'd get more questions-and-answers on our forum, but that seems to have died off. (Posts with no responses get deleted after about a month.) Maybe if we revive the story we can start over.

Maybe the two of you could drive up here and bring some treats?

OK it's a date. When's the fish market trip?

Some of us have nothing to do but blog. :rolleyes: But I was thinking, maybe tomorrow or Friday? You've still got my number? If not, I'll resend in a PM. They had some white salmon ... oh, crap. Externship backflash.

Hey, at least your kid cooks! Jean-Luc got a stick of butter off the counter today and I had to wrest it from his (very slobbery) jaws. It was pretty nasty.

When I was on my Externship, I often wondered how many of my neighbor-ladies were standing on their feet for 14 hours on a Saturday night, up to their elbows in raw calves' liver or pulling meat from a pig's head.

Good golly, I'm yappy today! Even though I won't go on and on about much more, I did want to say:

Sandy: I did know that brownie story ... but you tell it really, really well. Yeah, I can see a book being squeezed from you, food or otherwise. Do you have a writing group? (I don't, but people always ask me if I do.)

Smithy et al: Thank you for being so nice about what I said about Freaky Fresser. He's quite a character.

My husband 'lost' his sherbet container today in the freezer, which is man-talk for "it's not in front of my face." I took a couple of shots for your viewing pleasure/

This is the top left of the freezer; see the little squares of fish food? Awwww. I'll show you the fishies tomorrow.

gallery_28661_3538_12880.jpg

Here's the rest of the freezer

gallery_28661_3538_27475.jpg

Note the chipwiches in the red box, and the bags of frozen chicken bones. I'm a little behind on stock production!

And so ends another day chez Foodbabe. Dinner was salad with garden tomatoes and spaghetti with meat sauce, at the boys' request, because it was easy to hold (mealtime was in three shifts this evening and my husband just got in). Dessert was, for me, nothing. Everyone else had cake and chipwiches.

I can't believe how fast this week is going! Good night, and have a good sleep. I'm going to re-watch "House" before I head to bed. :wub::wub::wub:

Here's today's list -- with a little something for you, Racheld.   :laugh:   We all thank you!

gallery_28661_3538_19882.jpg

:laugh::laugh::laugh: AWWWWWWWW.

MAJOR Covet on the knives. And I don't use big ones that much. They just LOOK so pretty---like a big card of new barrettes or the EXPENSIVE box of Crayolas. Just to HAVE. (And I'm not REALLY seven).

And I also love Bassets---we have four Bassie-Boys a couple of doors down, who greet me every time I walk out the back fence. They have a big sign in their yard, with the word "Crossing" topped by that unmistakable droop-eared silhouette. I always wanted a Cleo. Waaa-OOOOOF!

The Mt. Kisco Farm market is commonly referred to, in our household,  as the "Sixty Dollar Store".  They have a great selection of vegetables...but, watch, no matter what you buy, or think you are running in there for, you spend $60.

Hilarious. That's like our favorite pub. No matter what you get to eat or drink, it's always $30 per person. We always used to joke about it when we'd go with a big group of people after work. Even if someone only had a beer, it'd be $30.

Once, a colleague had a bit too much to drink and got into a huge argument with some of the other patrons. He ended up getting a drink thrown in his face. When he went to grab his coat to storm out the door, he threw $20 on the table. My husband turned to him and said, uh, you're a little light. That'll be $30, please. (Maybe you had to be there.)

But I was thinking, maybe tomorrow or Friday?  You've still got my number?

I think I have your number. Either works for me. Around mid afternoon?

I haven't come up with anything yet that I consider worthy of his Borscht Belt blog. Worse still, I haven't come up with anything lately that I consider worthy of my own blog, "Sandy's Spew Stew."

No, I don't. I haven't even made it yet to any of the social events sponsored by the local chapter of the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association, of which I am an associate member (public relations being journalism's hired-gun cousin, they let us flacks join too).

1) A special Nobel Prize will no doubt be awarded to the person who invents a shelving or storage system that keeps everything right up front where you can see it, and no, shallow shelves don't count--though the lazy Susan comes awfully close.

2) What pleases me even more about these photos is that your freezer is about as neatly organized as mine is. I've been collecting shrimp shells for the same reason you've been stockpiling chicken bones. Hmmmm...maybe a reason for me to buy breasts and thighs bone-in and debone them myself....

Besides similar names, Westchester and West Chester--which is a good way to distinguish locals from aliens in Philadelphia; the locals know that West Chester is nowhere near Chester--share something else in common: they're fabulously affluent.

Whoa. Let me backtrack a minute. The counties--Westchester in New York and Chester in Pennsylvania--are fabulously affluent. The county seats--West Chester in Pennsylvania and White Plains in New York--are not quite as wealthy, but both are stable communities with healthy town centers.

(You will all have to wait for my next blog to find out why West Chester is nowhere near Chester.)

Mt. Kisco Seafood is a great place....the new store doesn't have that challenging parking lot. I always felt like I was playing a game of Tetris (does anyone still remember Tetris??) trying to get in and out of there.  These are good people who work hard, its nice to see them expanding.

Have you been to La Tulipe, the patisserie down the street? It is by far one of the best places around.  Those cheesy-cracker things should be listed as a controlled substance!

Is corn season over? How was it?? Its been 2 years since I've had corn. That's a sad story, isn't it??

hathor, I feel so bad for you! I can always tell the Ohioans at the grocery stores here; we're the ones standing around the corn, griping about it.

La Tulipe, oh my. It's on my list with the fish shop and the smokehouse. I could eat those little opera cakes all day long.

This is such an old side-by-side that parts don't even exist. I'm hoping it holds out until the new one comes in. The downstairs freezer is tiny, and is full of bagged ice.

It's one of those, "if I'm crazy, I'm not alone" moments, isn't it? :raz: I always buy whole birds and bone-in beef (fish when I can, too,), and practice breaking them down. Bones are for stock and fumet.

Hokay. This morning was just a bundle of fun: the usual breakfast of waffle with additive-free peanut butter, and a nice long workout while watching my Tivo'd shows (can't wait for Gilmore Girls to start again!). I have a rule: all the junk TV I want, as long as I'm on the treadmill or elliptical (purchased to rehab a badly broken ankle). So if anyone needs to know what's up with L&O (any of them), The Closer, Prison Break, Rescue Me, etc. etc., do let me know. :smile:

President Clinton is out campaigning, "they" tell me, so I went to a couple of his favorite Chappaqua haunts.

gallery_28661_3538_3189.jpg

It's a little deli that focuses more on food than "etc." and has a seating area to the right. Remember Rocky's? This place is twice as big, and the kitchen here is in the back.

gallery_28661_3538_61471.jpg

Besides all the sandwiches you can imagine (including a Cuban that looks pretty good), Lange's does some hot foods as well.

gallery_28661_3538_18059.jpg

gallery_28661_3538_34724.jpg

Broasted chicken!!

Although our former President gets egg whites, I got the real deal.

gallery_28661_3538_51910.jpg

The yolks were juuuuust firm, the way I like it. Good bacon, too.

Rumor is, that one day a stretch limo pulls up in front of Lange's, and a bespectacled man got out (without a guard) and ordered a tuna melt. He sat down and enjoyed it (didn't want to eat in the car) while people tried to figure out who he was. Apparently, when the former leader of the free world entertains billionaires, he makes them get their own lunch! :laugh: At least he directed Mr. Gates to a cool little place around the corner.

(story has been passed around many times, but neither confirmed nor denied by the Gates or Clinton camp.)

Here's where most of the Clinton-sightings occur: The Starbucks in the center of our bustling town.

gallery_28661_3538_44190.jpg

You can tell when he's around; his dog is always with him, and the big black Suburban with DC plates is idling nearby. And, of course, there are about 100 women around him and they all have that glazed look in their eyes when they speak of the encounter.

I've never, EVER seen him in person; I've always missed him by a few minutes. Honestly, I'm more interested in where he gets his dogs trained!

To the right of Starbucks, down the alley, is the Chappaqua Village Market I showed you earlier. To the left is the Chappaqua Restaurant, a little diner that makes killer pancakes and eggs.

We also have a restaurant row of sorts, behind where I'm standing to take this photo. Can't get a good shot of it; it goes up a hill and around a bend, but there is a good sushi restaurant, a bagel shop, a French restaurant with outside seating, and a little Italian place with outside seating, so we can have drinks in nice weather, watching the strollers go by.

ooooh, they are all sherbet-y and pretty!who makes them, please? i tried to focus my caffeine-deprived eyes on the brand, but failed.....thanks!

Hi, chezcherie! They're Pure Komachi knives; I got some on Amazon.com, one at a store here, and a couple of them at Cooking.com or Chef's.com, on sale. They cost about $20-$25 when they're not on sale.

I heart Fresser. Where is he lately, by the way?? I haven't 'run into him' lately here.

What Racheld said about the knives. Not that I necessarily want to use them, but I want to have them.

I thought it said buttocks, too.

Fabby, I want to live next door to you. I want to cook with you, meet your cool boys, share a bottle with you and your funny husband and my pug, Otis, wants to chill with the incomparable Jean-Luc! I also love the freezer - mine looks just like that (minus the fish cubes). I also have little bags of butt ends of french bread that I am going to make into bread crumbs one day :laugh:! I am enjoying your blog so much!

      I'm thinking about starting a blog featuring the recipes of antoine Carême that I've translated from 1700s French? No English versions of his works exist and his work is hard to find, even though he is the greatest chef who ever lived. After I get through his works I'd add menon, la Varenne, and other hard to find, but historically important masters of French cuisine.

      Prologue:
       
      Originally, we intended to spend this Chinese New Year in Hong Kong. We have travelled a lot last year and will need to attend a wedding already next month in Germany, so I was happy to spend some quiet days at home (and keep the spendings a bit under control as well). As a consequence, we had not booked any flights in the busiest travel time of the year in this region …
       
      But – despite all good intentions – I found myself two weeks ago calling the hotline of my favourite airline in the region, essentially cashing in on three years of extensive business travel and checking where I could get on short notice over CNY on miles. I was expecting a laughter on the other side of the line but this is the one time my status in their loyalty reward program paid out big time: three seats for either Seoul or Kansai International (earliest morning flights, of course). No need to choose, really – Kyoto, here we come !

      Alright so as of a few months ago, I decided to take an impromptu trip to Europe--mostly unplanned but with several priorities set in mind: find the best food and locate the most game-changing ice cream spots on the grounds of each city I sought out for. One of the greatest, most architecturally unique and divine cities I have visited thus far has gotta be Vienna, Austria. But what in the heck is there to eat over there?! (you might ask). 'Cause I sure as hell didn't know. So, I desperately reached out to a local Viennese friend of mine, who knows and understands my avid passion for all things edible, and she immediately shot back some must-have food dishes. Doing a bit of research beforehand, I knew I had to try the classic "Kasekreiner". Please forgive my German if I spelled that wrong. But no matter how you say it- say it with passion, because passion is just about all I felt when I ate it. Translated: it basically means cheese sausage. Honestly, what is there not to love about those two words. Even if that's not necessarily your go-to, do me a favor and give it a shot. Trust me, you won't regret it. A classic Austrian pork sausage with pockets of melty cheese, stuffed into a crisp French Baguette. No ketchup necessary (...and as an American, that's saying a lot). YUM. Best spot to try out this one-of-a-kind treat?! Bitzinger bei der Albertina – Würstelstand. Now here's a shot of me with my one true love in front of this classic Viennese green-domed building-- Karlskirche. Now, go check it.

      OK, I'm back, by popular demand! hehe....  After being back for 2 days, I'm still struggling with crazy jetlag and exhaustion - so please bear with me!
       
      This year, for our Asian adventure, we went to Bali, which for those who don't know, is one of the islands in Indonesia.  Bali is a very unique place - from its topology, to the people, language, customs, religion and food.  Whereas the majority of people in Indonesia are Muslim, most people in Bali are Balinese Hindu, which from what I understand is a little like Indian Hinduism, but has more ancestor worship.  Religion is very important to many people in Bali - there are temples everywhere, and at least in one area, there are religious processions through the street practically every day - but we'll get to that later.
       
      Bali has some food unique to it among its Indonesian neighbors, but like everywhere, has seen quite a bit of immigration from other Indonesian islands (many from Java, just to the west) who have brought their classic dishes with them.
       
      Basically all Indonesians speak Indonesian, or what they call Bahasa Indonesia, or just Bahasa, which, anyone who has read my prior foodblogs wouldn't be surprised to hear that I learned a little bit just before the trip.  Unfortunately, I didn't get to use any of it, except a couple times which were totally unnecessary.  When speaking with each other, most people in Bali speak Balinese (totally different from bahasa) - many times when I tried using my bahasa, they smiled and replied, and then tried to teach me the same phrase in Balinese!  As time went on, and I used some of the Balinese, I got lots of surprised smiles and laughs - who is this white guy speaking Balinese?!?  Seriously though, tourism has been in Bali for a very long time, so just about everyone we encountered spoke English to some degree.  Some people spoke German as well, as they supposedly get lots of tourists from Germany.  As one of our drivers was telling us, Bali is heavily dependent on tourism as they have no real industry other than agriculture, which doesn't pay nearly as well as tourism does.
       
      While there are beaches all around the island, most of the popular beach areas are in the south of the island, and those areas are the most highly touristed.  We spent very little time in the south as we are not really beach people (we get really bored) and during planning, decided to stay in less touristed areas so we'd have more opportunities for local food... this didn't work out, as you'll see later.
       
      So, it wouldn't be a KennethT foodblog without photos in the Taipei airport and I-Mei Dim Sum, which we called home for about 4 hours before our connection to Bali...
       
      Beef noodle soup:

       
      The interior:

       
      This was the same as always - huge pieces of beef were meltingly tender.  Good bite to the thick chewy noodles.
       
      Xie long bao (soup dumplings) and char siu bao (fluffy barbeque pork buns):

    • By KennethT
      Recently, there was a thread about stir frying over charcoal, which immediately brought to mind memories of eating in Bangkok in July 2013.  At that time, I hadn't gotten into the habit of writing food blogs, and considering that I had some spare time this weekend (a rarity) I figured I would put some of those memories down on paper, so to speak.  Back then, neither my wife nor I were in the habit of taking tons of photos like we do nowadays, but I think I can cobble something together that would be interesting to folks reading it.
       
      In the spirit of memories, I'll first go back to 2006 when my wife and I took our honeymoon to Thailand (Krabi, Bangkok and Chiang Mai), Singapore and Hanoi.  That was our first time to Asia, and to be honest, I was a little nervous about it.  I was worried the language barrier would be too difficult to transcend, or that we'd have no idea where we were going.  So, to help mitigate my slight anxiety, I decided to book some guides for a few of the locations.  Our guides were great, but we realized that they really aren't necessary, and nowadays with internet access so much more prevalent, even less necessary.
       
      Prior to the trip, when emailing with our guide in Bangkok to finalize plans, I mentioned that we wanted to be continuously eating (local food, I thought was implied!)  When we got there, I realized the misunderstanding when she opened her trunk to show us many bags of chips and other snack foods.. whoops...  Anyway, once the misconception was cleared up, she took us to a noodle soup vendor:


      On the right is our guide, Tong, who is now a very famous and highly sought after guide in BKK.... at the time, we were among here first customers.  I had a chicken broth based noodle soup with fish ball, fish cake and pork meatball, and my wife had yen ta fo, which is odd because it is bright pink with seafood.  I have a lime juice, and my wife had a longan juice.
       
      This is what a lot of local food places look like:
