  1. Anyone know a recipe for making something similar at home? Thinking of breaking out my souls vide to give that a try. Roast breast always seems to dry out. Perhaps I’m just overcooking it.
  2. The pectin is exactly what I was thinking of - basically how do you keep it thin? Thanks for the links!
  3. @DonRocks - The WSJ must be reading your posts! What Is the Brobdingnagian Base? The phrase, a nod to ‘Gulliver’s Travels,’ describes a stock-price pattern that some analysts believe is particularly bullish
  4. Would Ray mind if you shared it here? I've been experimenting with simple syrups and would love to try a cranberry one.
  5. Yes! We've appeared to have a breakthrough with our blanditarian son. And it all started with Szechuan peanut sauce (little sweet, a little spicy), which opened him up to the idea that flavor might not be all bad. Specifically it was Jade peanut sauce, but we've made our own and even branched out into dan dan noodles and currries since. Salmon remains king in our house too. Teriyaki, preferably.
  6. Terrifying. Eagerly awaiting the vaccine.
  7. I'm going to defer to Andy for this one. Who buys these things? Last time I lived in London, I almost rented a place near Harrods. After returning in the evening to check out the neighborhood, the constant rumble, then acceleration, of car engines was noticeable and quite annoying. Turns out there are individuals who still turn out every afternoon/evening in the vicinity of Harrod's to show off their Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, whatever. Almost as bad as the planes constantly flying over Richmond that made us say - no way.
  8. We saved over $100 per month dropping cable (and phone). Our bill was a bit inflated since I wouldn't do a two year contract, but the savings are real. We went from 100 Mbps to 1Gb internet (not that we ever got that speed level as we discovered the wiring in our house couldn't go that fast and wifi sure couldn't 3-4 years ago) and still had those savings.
  9. I'd agree with this. We're debating a rotation strategy for our streaming services so that we have access to say D+ for 3 months, then HBO Max, then whatever is next. It fits with the way we binge.
  10. Same here. Except production was closed and all you could do was buy bags of chips in the lobby. All part of what my family still describes as the worst vacation ever.
  11. Not Red Truck, but drooling thinking of the apple hand pies that Jeff Heineman made at Grapeseed. Damn, I miss him and the great food he made.
  12. I would be fascinated to know how this tastes. Was quite thrown off by the white wine appearing black. Unfortunately, I have no clue how you should go about tasting this.
