    Dinner Friday, 11-25-2022 ~ no turkey tonight

    I was going to make some leftovers soup and try a recipe for dumplings from Chef John. But, I got to organizing the cheeses and cold cuts in the fridge (I wanted to use up any cold cuts that had been hanging around in open packages.) and then I ran out of spoons. So, we ordered from our...

    Which self-help book would you choose to read first out of these?

    I really enjoyed The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. I have incorporated many things from that book into my life.

    ISO tips and tricks for using frozen, store bought, puff pastry

    Thank you for the explanation. That the "best working range" is fairly wide is good to know. I am not likely to risk defrosting it overnight. I don't know how many spoons I have until I have been awake for a few hours. I would rather defrost in the morning on a day where I have enough spoons.

    ISO tips and tricks for using frozen, store bought, puff pastry

    Supper 2022 November 24, Thanksgiving in the US

    We had Thanksgiving back in October, so I made a more ordinary supper. I had no particular inspiration, so I made something simple. I roasted some roasted onion sausages in the toaster oven. I made a green salad of green crisp lettuce, scallion greens, sunflower micro greens, celery, red and...

    Dinner Wednesday, 11-23-2022

    Had a grocery delivery, so I was prepared with some ready made samosas and Algerian mini briks. I got those with my Lufa Farms basket yesterday. I made a very simple green salad to go with it - greencrisp lettuce, a whole bunch of scallion greens (the scallions I get from Lufa Farms have are...

    Cranberries vs. Hubby - Round 1

    Oh no! Not again, even though it's getting to be a traditional humour post. Funny, but sad. I would be drinking too.

    Is the air fryer of the basket style or of the toaster oven style?
