#1446930 MLB Playoffs

Posted by joethefoodie on Today, 12:05 PM in Sports

MLB gets the Nats vs Astros.  Should be a nice, low rating.




#1446929 Coffee bean grinders

Posted by joethefoodie on Today, 11:57 AM in Non-Alcoholic Beverages

I don't French press usually, so can't comment.

 

I think 4 days vs 7 - 10 days could also be dependent on storage situation, but I'm assuming here that that isn't the case.

 

I'll reread the article and perhaps my understanding will change, now that I'm on my second cup.

Posted by joethefoodie on Yesterday, 04:55 PM in What's that got to do with anything?

We both had ours this year!  Since they always find a polyp or two (or they pretend to find a polyp or two to up the bill), I go every 3 years. Insurance pretty much covers ours to the tune of 100%.

Ginormous.




#1446819 Places we're curious about

Posted by joethefoodie on 17 October 2019 - 09:07 PM in New York

Hmmmm...

 

West Village: Chef Joaquin (Quino) Baca has opened Bumu, an izakaya with raw bar, skewers, and small plates like fried oysters with smoked yam purée, pickled jalapeño, and cilantro. 61 West Eighth Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues

No one should underestimate what a giant of public service he was.  Nor the giant loss.

 

RIP, and as I like to say to the good public servants, thanks for your service.




#1446798 Sushi Noz

(Don't tell me Matt Dillon isn't a good actor.)

 

Admittedly, he doesn't always pick the best movies to be in. Sometimes you just gotta pay the bills.

But anyone who'd say that clearly hasn't seen Drugstore Cowboy or To Die For.

 

My mother, she should rest in peace, must've seen Drugstore Cowboy many times, because she hid the drugs when her kids were coming home.

 

And if there's an artist I want a deep personal connection with, who for sure should remember me, I want it to be my orthopedic surgeon. Not necessarily my chef.

This is the start (middle?) of a New Mexico Hatch Chile Verde, using some boneless shoulder (for she) and some neck (for me).  Braised on the stovetop for about an hour and a half. The boneless stuff came out after like 30 minutes, while the neck bones cooked. Boneless added back when reheating for service.

 

Served with Rancho Gordo's black beans, white rice, avocado, tomato, lime, cilantro, etc.

Ah  but, "super small," does that mean two per serving?

 

They were half that price for 4 of the "petites" during this flash sale.

it all looks good but the soup is calling me.. .Is that fregola. 

No - it's actually this little pasta I found in Providence, RI's Federal Hill - called peperina.

Posted by joethefoodie on 16 October 2019 - 11:44 AM in At the shops

I don't remember their HAVING those super-small Rohan breasts or that wild boar mini-roast.  It's like they're finally really thinking about us Pathetic Single People.

Yeah - and I bought a couple packages; they're even good for we pathetic married people.

 

I'm excited about trying that porcelet collar too.

#1446679 The surrealism of everyday life

Posted by joethefoodie on 15 October 2019 - 10:57 PM in What's that got to do with anything?

That's actually kinda brilliant.




#1446677 3 Times

You have no idea how that looks to my outer 8-year old!

Posted by joethefoodie on 15 October 2019 - 10:54 PM in New York

Atla's website at least says they're closing at 10.

#1446673 Babs

Posted by joethefoodie on 15 October 2019 - 10:51 PM in New York

Atla tried to last call us at 10 last week.

At least they're open for "breakfast."

 

Well, at 11.




#1446671 Babs

Posted by joethefoodie on 15 October 2019 - 10:50 PM in New York

Of course my problem with Babs is my problem with most places.

 

 

 

Maybe the problem is....

 

Nah.

#1446646 Annoyances

Posted by joethefoodie on 15 October 2019 - 06:41 PM in What's that got to do with anything?

I had to put this quarter's RG shipment on hold...I've got a few too many pounds of beans, since cooking them in the hot weather months isn't something I enjoy doing.




#1446645 Supper

Posted by joethefoodie on 15 October 2019 - 06:38 PM in In the kitchen

Nothing DOES pair with cocktails. You don’t eat with them. They’re not for food.

I've been forced to drink a Martini and eat oysters; wasn't bad. But then again, are oysters food?
