New in the pantry

At Trader Joe's yesterday I was looking particularly for low-carb stuff, but also still interesting stuff. I found onion crisps, broccoli snacks, and egg wraps. The onion crisps... Well, think of Pringles made of onion instead of potatoes. The chips are smaller, and turn kind of pasty in the mouth.... Sign in to see full entry.

"Engage brain before putting mouth in gear..."

Charlie will be coming over later for lunch. I bought some potato-encrusted cod pieces... Yes, that's what I called them when I invited him over. Had I thought a bit more before speaking, I'd have said "pieces of cod." Or the word "portions" might have come into it. Sign in to see full entry.

The fabulous Blooming Onion

I've eaten them in restaurants a couple of times, but I've never tried to make one at home, until now. I looked online at recipes, and the thing is, I don't really want (or need) the deep-fried, battered version. So I have cut off the ends, and cut down ~3/4 of the way through, annointed the top...

Not according to recipe...

Chicken lettuce wraps are one of my favorite things at PF Changs, so when I found the sauce for it at the grocery store, I brought some home. This morning I mixed it up with not ground chicken, but pork. Mainly this was because I had the pork, but not any ground chicken. I chopped up onions and... Sign in to see full entry.

Kitchen upheavals

After committing to bringing home a cat on Thursday, I started looking around at what needs to be done to prep the house. My previous two cats never ate plants, never knocked things onto the floor for fun, rarely upset anything but me. This one, though, is an unknown! So yesterday I cleared all the...

Kitchen upgrades

Over the weekend, the old toaster oven made way for a smallish/suitable for one air-fryer, and the old electric tea kettle for a new one. The air-fryer does all that the toaster oven could do, but also has a convection fan which circulates the hot around the food to cook it more evenly. Instead of... Sign in to see full entry.

Swordfish II

We had some lovely swordfish steaks last night while we watched LIFE OF PI. It has been quite a while, and I knew that last time there had been a secret for success in not overcooking this particular fish, but I couldn't remember what it was. But I did remember writing about it here. So I 'searched'... Sign in to see full entry.

odds and ends

In the war against the carbs, lettuce wraps are a great way to enjoy sandwich fillings. I had some seafood salad--mixed with coleslaw--wrapped in iceberg lettuce today. It was pretty tasty! I wouldn't suggest it as a sub for pb&j, however. A few nights ago I made some little meatballs with some... Sign in to see full entry.

much fish!

Last week an email came from Sizzlefish that my order of 12 portions of sablefish was on its way, should arrive by Friday. Well, it arrived Monday, the dry ice was totally gone, and the fish was about half frozen yet. I sent them word of the situation, and the next day they sent a reply that they...

I'd never heard of this one, but when I ordered a box of frozen Alaska whitefish, I added that to the order. I'd never had it, never even heard of it, so I didn't know if it was going to be worth the extra cost. It was. Sablefish is also called black cod. It is very soft and buttery in texture, high...
