We’re doing a potluck thing for work and the day is quickly approaching and I have nothing. Zip. Zero. Nada. Zilch.
The weather dropped like 40 degrees in 2 days and now I want ALL the fall foods.
What’s some of your go-to “eh, fuck it” meals? Dinner last night and tonight has been goat cheese smeared on crackers. Just scraping it out of the plastic Costco packaging and smearing it on crackers.
STOP THE PRESSES, TRADER JOE’S HAS BLACK FIGS. AND TIGER FIGS (which look like green figs to my non-fig-expert eyes).
What’s for dinner? What would u rather have instead?
I wanna brag. Brag with me. Or ask questions, help others with all food and cookery related questions.
Hiya GT, random question/mini quiz time:
So I tried making some oxtail stock for ramen. It didn’t work out. I tried the Just One Cookbook recipe that I saw on youtube. It was flavorless aside from ginger. I followed the recipe and used the Instant Pot to make it. I decided to try to cook down the liquid by 1/2 add extra garlic and onion and a bullion cube.…
So thanks to having minimal family plans this long weekend (side benefit of having almost no living family), I got some time on my hands.
Veggies are finally starting to come in! I got fresh spinach and asparagus yesterday and I am stoked!
Penzey’s has an awesome free gift this weekend, their “American Heart and Soul” box is free (well, you pay shipping unless you spend $20 on other deliciousness).
My friend is having knee surgery in the near future and I took off a day from work to visit her and keep her company afterwards. She’ll have her leg in an immobilizer for a few months and I’d like to make her some meals that can be frozen and then reheated, or preps that have been frozen and can just be tossed in a…
Phantom Thread was a sensuous, satisfying movie, and critics agreed that this was mostly because mushrooms finally got their due in popular culture. If you spent the last two decades milling around, stumbling over tree roots, wondering when fungus would appear as a key plot point in a Daniel Day-Lewis vehicle, you…
Because it’s been WAY too long since we’ve had a good, old-fashioned, knock-down-drag-out food fight around here (and when i read Brighterside’s headline the first time today, i misread “right” as “fight!😆🤣😂), i would like to propose a GT food fight!
I took the Little Daleks to go harvest blackcurrants from the backyard of a guy who posted on Kijiji in the free section. I’d never had them before, but I’ve wanted to visit a pick-your-own farm for over a decade (my ex refused to let us do it). I was planning to finally do it this month or next but this was free and…
I’m working tomorrow’s election here in my city, so I won’t be here ‘til late, if at all. Y’all be cool, okay?
I saw the promoted tweet last night. “Are you expecting? Questions about food? @CanIEatThisBot has tips from the FDA and Mayo Clinic.” But when I started asking questions, things got weird. Spoiler: It lies.
OK. I love King’s Hawaiian dinner rolls. ADORE THEM. But I can only get them in the States. Last time I was there I discovered they sell sandwich bread as well and I was in heaven.
