What would you consider are your 6 essential spices?

No $hit. I had no idea. But, I wasn't a cooking person in those days. I'll have to ask my dad about this. He will utilize anything free in any way possible.

What's for Dinner #291 - the Taxman Cometh Edition [Through Aprl 16, 2014]

Sterlite box, exacto knife, screen and caulk. You, too, can have the beef box. Or if Europe in my destiny for '14, you can just have it anyways.

I will have to admit, I'm pretty lucky in the growing climate department. When I've been less lucky in that area in the past, the cilantro looks pretty battered in the stores:(
I don't have any oregano, but I should give it a go, one of my garden boxes happens to have a vacancy.

Eh, I'm putting Pok Pok off again (ugh) for the simple reason that I'm parked in by a moving truck. And since there is a lot of junk in and around said truck, I'll just not make an issue. So, tonight will still be Thai, I'll do yum woon sen with the rest of the pork that wasn't used last night. And, the sun is finally high enough in the sky that I woke up bright and early to get Beef Box up and running for a tasty jerky snack with dinner :D

Your "evil food" (super unhealthy) recipe?? :)

Avon collectibles--bwahaha! I SO forgot about those.
I think the solution here is clear: throw your own!

Maybe you're just too classy. I've been to several. Which kind of makes me think that people know I can bring it when it comes to trash :D

Yikes, sorry about the tummy funk :( Happens to the best of us.
Small portions should smooth it all out. Never had a Weggy's roti chicken, I'm sure it was faboosh!

Welcome back :) I'm glad to see you here again!
I'm so terribly sorry about the loss of your father and the ensuing funk. I'm glad you're husband has returned and you're busy in the kitchen again.
Take good care, I look forward to seeing what else you crank out soon.

Earlier dinner here as I'm trying to pin down the source of pap's sleeping pill failure and it may be late dinners. Hmmm. Anyhoo, all went a planned with the schnitzel and taters and he enjoyed immensely :) I'm getting better at the schnitzels, slow but sure.

Singlets was always in mine as lil' bro wrestled, and as the household laundry wench, I learned those things get funky!
I always knew unpopped corn as "old maids". It took me until about age 16 to get it :D

Holy crud, that's scary stuff. I really hope your new pills work properly with no side effects. Please keep us posted.
Dinner sounds very good and should be nice and comforting.

Chop up some ham, mix it with pimento cheese. Then crack open a tube of biscuit dough. Split the biscuits almost through, put in as much of the cheese mixture as you can and seal this biscuits back together. Slit the top a little bit, brush with melted butter and bake 'em up. I made these for a white trash themed party once, and people went nuts for them.
Oh, the shame....

Kitchen Nightmares .... back to Amy's Baking Company

Doesn't Greenland need some folks to do, y'know, Greenland stuff? It's a hard fall from Scottsdale, but so it can go...
edit: I'll be darned, there is Greenland stuff to do:

Siba's Table on Cooking Channel

I caught this show bright and early this morning and really enjoyed it. Siba is a breath of fresh air amongst all of the over the top tv personalities, and the food looks really good. There's not much on cookingchannel.tv yet so I also dug up some of her recipes from FN UK. I hope we see a lot more of her!

Yeah, he's um... something else. And a backrub would be met with a fork stabbing to the hand. My record's clean, I'm sure I'd get away with a small fine ;)

No taxman for me, not my responsibility at the moment. But I did get my car registered before the 4/15 deadline, so whoohoo! Excitement.
My two slices of pizza and two beers went down last night with no ill effect whatsoever, and I swear I have more energy today!!
Was going to do a Pok Pok recipe tonight, but will put it off until tomorrow. Pap's been begging for some česká kuchyně, so it'll be a simple dinner of pork schnitzel with lemon and buttery mashed potatoes with dill. Probably some green beans with slivered almond on the side. And beer. Yes, definitely beer.

How do you eat your grapefruit?

Usually just supreme with a bit of torn mint and drizzle of honey. There's an Asian style suck and grapefruit salad I saved and have wanted to try forever. I need to get on that!

Thank you kindly Fowler. It takes a lot to wipe off my silly grin :D
The pepper comes into play for Czech food. It's a relatively spice free cuisine, save for some paprika. I've got plenty of that on hand, too!
Saffron is a must have $plurge for me. I get grumpy without some sunny saffron every so often ;)

Thanks, dinner friends. I could wait no longer, I just called it in. I last ate pizza with cheese on exactly Dec 24. I seriously think a happy tear will come to my eye.

What cookbooks have you bought recently, or are you lusting after? April 2014 edition!

I just preordered Thailand: The Cookbook from Amazon.

I figure if it costs that much, it had better be good!
