Your fishmonger is a treasure! The smoked mackerel looks divine. Can't wait for the photo of the eel.

Some health food stores carry it too.

It's mind boggling. At the end of the season the husband half of a couple who missed their pick up more often than not inquired where their unclaimed shares were. He seemed to think they were in deep freeze awaiting him.

Once it was explained that seafood is quite perishable and the CSF does not have a storage cooler for long term use he just kind of said "oh".

Ongoing Feedback for New Conversation Types

Same here. It is very distracting for me.

Just got home and disabled Adblock on CH. Now I can sign out, text block for reply is proper size, read threads are collapsed. Have not tried starting a new post but suspect it will work too.

Thanks! Nice to have one less frustration tonight.

Bob, Thanks. I have attempted both of those ways of beginning a new post and signing out. Neither work. I'm also Firefox with winXP. Later I'll experiment with Adblock.

Possible Double Standard Regarding Dietary Needs/Preferences

This really sounds like the two new dietary requirements simply were the straw that broke the camels back.

Not everyone finds menu planning easy. Some reach the point where it is just too much of a chore.

I generally love to cook but living alone and eating smallish meals means I have less opportunity to try new recipes. So it may take awhile before I can test an idea to serve to a friend.

Between no onions, nothing weird, no nightshades, gluten free, no pork, no beef, only seafood caught in a certain way, nothing with bones in it, etc. I simply don't have the energy to attempt a dinner party for a group. I can deal with a few issues for a meal so tend to just host two to three people at this point.

I can't even sign out - the option simply isn't there. This is really tedious.

Ongoing Feedback for New Conversation Types

Sorry of off topic but I am unable to start of new discussion. That function simply is not working on my computer (I use Firefox). Also the collapse feature is not working for me. Threads I have read are completely opening each time I open them. This has been happening since Monday.

Going to have to bow out of participating in long threads like WFD until this is fixed. Too much stuff to wade through in order to find the newer posts.

Also, the "reply" box is so small - perhaps 20 characters wide. PITA.

I realize engineering is probably working like crazy but this is the most messed up I've ever seen for CH. One step forward, ten steps back...

My boys go crazy for lamb or roast chicken. Same with canned sardines. They also love, love, love the fish flavored hair ball stuff - maybe that could be mixed with food? Hope you find the right kitty tonic!

Do you like or dislike the new format ?

Melanie,

Thank you - my bad. You are correct. That was the post I had thought was on this thread.

Loosing my mind obviously!

Do you like or dislike the new format ?

Very strange. My post the other day about flag/reply, visual clutter, the blue "read" dot has disappeared. And it even had quite a few votes in agreement.

Mods, if it was removed I'd appreciate knowing why. It was a concise list without bitching about things.

Dinner tonight was a big salad, lots of vegies and oil poached tuna. I had made the tuna when I had several pounds from unclaimed CSF shares. It was alright. I'd tweak it if I end up needing to deal with lots of tuna again. Otherwise it's not good enough to waste fresh tuna on.

Last nights garlic fest seems to have worked - nothing has bit me today!

What's for Dinner #314 - Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon Edition [Through July 26, 2014]

Harters, were you pleased with the lamb shawarma recipe? I've had it in my "try" file!

Yuca would be perfect with pernil!

I fished the can from recycling - it is by Goya so shouldn't be terribly hard to find. One can makes two generous servings.

What a great dinner party!

The slaw is intriguing - could you tell more?

Congrats on the new family member! The dishes are good choices - comforting, delicious and easy to reheat. They are lucky to have you near by.

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

Must add spring time fried herring!

Your meals always look wonderful.

I hope you will find occasional kitchen access on your upcoming adventure. Otherwise the markets filled with lovely items beckoning you will drive you crazy!

I am so jealous. That muffaletta was my first experience with the dish (too good to label a simple sandwich). It remains the best rendition I've ever had.

Have a great time! NO is such a wonderful city for food and so much more.

If we weren't in the heat of summer I'd be even more jealous!

Yucca cooked like this is one of my comfort foods.

Actually a Hispanic market near me has canned. The texture of fresh or frozen is better but the canned is actually pretty decent. My freezer space is limited and my yucca eating infrequent so the canned works for me. Even the smallest fresh piece is too much for me since I cook for one.

The can had a recipe for the sauce which I worked from. They suggested white wine vinegar (I'm out of) so I subbed sherry vinegar. The wwv would have been better since it is a little sharper. Added lime juice too. The Cuban restaurants in the Tampa Bay area where I used to live add onions to the mix. I cooked them in olive oil on the lowest temperature possible. Turned out really good!

Chesterfield, MO - Lunch Options?

Wish I had more to report back on...there were many wonderful sounding options presented.

It's frustrating answering visitor queries and never getting feedback. So I try to give some sort of report even when embarrassingly brief.

POLL: Specific NEW Features That Bug You

Visually cluttered.

Icon for the type of post located before the thread title is distracting. "Reply" and "Flag" are too close together now. Little dot indicating a thread you have read is almost impossible to see.

What's your best yard sale or thrift store cookware find?

Wow! So it's been going for 30 years?!

I need to ask my ex if our old one is still working.

What's your best yard sale or thrift store cookware find?

Great find! Champions were THE primo juicer and found in every health food store that had a juice bar in the 70's and 80's. I had one and it worked great. The drawbacks are the size/weight and they are a bit of a pain to clean. They are workhorses and hold up well.

(I purchased mine in the early '80's and remember it was expensive, so probably between 100 -200 dollars at that time.)

I just wanted to give all of you a big thank you. I think the WFD threads, the friendly support and descriptions of your meals really helped me start getting my kitchen mojo back!

I made a different meal each night this past week excepting the power outage evening. I had fun getting creative with my leftovers. And I took pleasure in eating the meals.

I'm still not getting hungry but with a list of simple dishes it is easier to just make a meal. Once I begin eating I'm enjoying the flavors and cleaning my plate.

So I'm getting there thanks in a large part to all of the WFD folks!

xxoo!
