They don't go missing, they go to a better place. :up:


It was eventually found again, near my computer of all places.

For me, cooking should require some level of danger. That is why BBQing is what I am best at. It involves high heat, open flames and fire retardant clothing. (there is nothing that kills an appetite faster than burnt chest hair.)

Baking cookies, pies, and other things that take time and patience has never been my forte. Maybe that is why I am still single?


Well, Bsuds is of the "manly man" cloth and he's in the instapot cooker thread. Maybe you'd consider getting an Insta-pot yourself and following what is going on in that thread? Of course the only level of danger in Insta-pot cooking is gaining weight as it all sounds so delicious.

But it might be danger you'd be willing to take on?

Maybe take some of lady t's recipe ideas to heart? :heart:

He is so engrossed in his cooking that he doesn't notice much of anything.

I have a lifetime supply of pots and pans now. I have got gadgets and small appliances I don't know if I will ever use. I am not going to add to the collection.

I would have a Spring garage sale for all that unused stuff then, and only you know what you want to cook and how.

What is today's recipe project?

Well, since I have so much sauce leftover, I am thinking spaghetti again, this time I will add mashed potatoes on the side. I couldn't figure out what to do with the potatoes yesterday. I am going to have to go back to the store again, I need more parmesan cheese. I am hoping that their are different cashiers on duty today though. Oh and I better get more garlic while I am there.

I just checked the sauce, and boy did it get thick overnight, I am going to have to get another bottle of wine to thin it out with. This is turning into a very expensive plate of spaghetti. $55.00 in wine alone.

I think I going to try making "Fondant Potatoes" as a side dish tonight.

I never had spaghetti sauce get so expensive in my life. Maybe wine is the secret to living in the rich man's World. My sauce would be stupendous.

Old school recipe that's fallen out of favour.

Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Just got back from the store.....new cashiers today!

Have you checked out the price of Parmesan Cheese? $18.00 for a little piece! Are you freakin' kidding me? That is much as bottle of wine.

Okay, I have done the prep-work for the Fondant potatoes. They are peeled and in an ice bath. The spaghetti sauce has been reheated with garlic and wine added.
the butter, olive oil, bacon fat, and oven proof pan are ready.

ANYONE else ever attempted this? ANY last minute advice? How come I feel like I am about to experience the birth of my 1st child?

Looks like you're going to bring fondant potatoes back into favour.

I watched the vid waterbab posted and decided to try it.

Buy your parmesan - heck any of your cheeses - at Mediterranean Market on the corner of Gordon & Lawrence. Trust me on this. :up:

Parmigiano-Reggiano is the king of cheeses and the price reflects that. You can also buy Parmesan which, while tasty, is produced outside of Italy and can't compare to the real deal but stores will try and charge a premium price.
