Is that wrong? I know what I am having for breakfast too. That is what I call "meal planning".

Alan's latest foray into cooking/baking certainly displays his fortitude and perserverence in mastering the craft. You, QK, will show him the finer points of fun in the kitchen in prep for party day.

Alan and myself will back away from really hot items for a while though (scorched appendage and upper palate burns :-X ) ...you are in charge of flames.

Maybe I should stick to salads.

A 7 course meal for me is. a bag of Doritos and a six pack.

Alan I must say I really hope you continue on your learning to cook journey because I am finding it most entertaining. And really funny ! I watch to see if there's new posts of your experiences! This morning I just about spit my coffee out while reading about the ShopVac incident!

We've all had our pitfalls in cooking. Somehow what we planned to execute as the perfect meal - well sometimes the meal needs to be taken out back and executed. Case in point - I had the notion one day to revive an old Home Economics recipe from Grade 10 highschool.
It was Swiss Steak. It is now referred to as Suicide Steak in our house.

Which brings me around to saying - those old recipes and dishes from your past that you thought were soooo good?
Better to leave them in the memory bank and not try them again. This past fall I decided I should make Sloppy Joes that I had LOVED when Mom made them for us as kids. Mmmmm.... now called Sloppy Yucks! Destination garbage can again !

The pizza places love me though because they get a phonecall for delivery every time !

That's funny because I too tried making sloppy joes. It more lick yak on a shingle. I wrote it off as "my taste buds have matured", and I shouldn't be eating that stuff anyways.

I like it. Mom used to make it 6 months ahead of time, it needed time for the flavours to blend in.

Another important lesson was learned this morning.

It's NOT a good idea to put cinnamon buns in a toaster.

I guess that after the fire, I will need to buy a new toaster today.

If you get a toaster oven, you'll be able to toast oversized bread items without fear of fire . . . :up:

Yeah, NOW you tell me. I do have 3 of them but, they are all packed away. They haven't been used in years and I needed the cupboard space for other things. They just don't make toast as good as an old fashioned toaster.

I went to IGA again this morning, I had to buy more yeast, (I did stop in at the bakery department and asked the baker about the "hibernating" and the fast acting yeast). I really don't understand why this question causes so many people to laugh at me. He said that the traditional is what I should use, the fast stuff is for bread making machines. THEY HAVE MACHINES THAT MAKE BREAD????
Nobody told me about this? What kind of friends are you guys anyways? You tell after the fact where I went wrong, but are absolutely no help at all when it comes to preventing these things from happening.
OH, and Queen K.......I thought about making meatloaf because of your, because I did find one of those racks on pan gadgets you spoke of. When I went into T-Bones this morning for hamburger, low and behold they have pre-made meat loafs in a tinfoil baking pan. Now I am really confused as to what I should do, so I guess I am just going to make a hamburger in a frying pan for supper. ( I don't want to offend the Muslims, so I will make it a cheeseburger).

Okay.......Sunday's project........Jelly roll!

I haven't had this since I was a kid. Here's the recipe I plan to use:
https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/je ... cf937624e6

I will have to go buy eggs though. It looks like everything else is here and I don't need yeast. I even found 2 - 3/4 full jars of strawberry jam that mom had. (1 with seeds and 1 without).

I was wondering how I was going to use the container, marked "Icing Sugar", I think this is the answer.

Now, "parchment paper". All I know is that whenever I feel parched, I have a beer, if that doesn't work, I have another 1-4. I have never thought about paper to relieve my parchment.

Oh yeah, when I went to the IGA today, that young cashier that I thought had peed herself and ran away from me........she has the flu and is looking like hell today. That's what you get for working in customer service and not getting the flu shot.

Apparently the suppression of laughter relating to the abdominal muscles can make for very uncomfortable feeling that requires a solitude respite to recover.

Eggs? You need eggs?

Just so happens I got a screaming hot deal from local farmer here who assures me that all 12 dozen eggs STILL float (must be truly fresh, right?) in a tub of water. I can spare 6 dozen, $4.00 each.

Now, off to make my famous devilled eggs that LANDM and Lightspeed appreciate so much.

:up:

LANDM and Lightspeed have tasted your devilled eggs? And not me? What gives here? Favouritism! I cry foul. Or fowl in Alan's thread. But seriously, share the recipe so Alan can try it?
