Trader Joe's Yay/Nay Thread - April 2013 [OLD]

Being a cider vinegar on my avacado kind of girl, it never would have occurred to me to put sweetened condensed milk on one. Darn, not I have to try it!

Lobster Rolls: 2013 Edition

Believe it or not, there is a great place in Orlando, FL for traditional lobster rolls. It is Stonington's Shrimp on South Kirkman. Nothing but the meat on a split roll with melted butter on the side. The mac and cheese is terrific too.

Florida produce

I have found a great resource for local organic produce. It is called the HomeGrown Co-op. One great thing is that you don't have to be a member to shop in the store front. The site is http://www.homegrowncoop.org/

I ordered twice on line before I joined- you do save a bit by being a member.

Food Trucks in Orlando

The Swede Dish is great- I found them at Eat More Produce on South Orlando Ave near the intersection of Orlando and Orange - their meatballs and mashed potatoes are amazing- as are their chocolate and coconut balls http://swededishfoodtruck.wordpress.com/

Steel Cut Oats

There are lots of savory recipes out there- it has become more popular in the past year to go savory over sweet. Here are some of my favorites.

1. sweet corn and cumin
2. spinach and oregano (sometimes with a small bit of either cream or neufchatel cheese added)
3. Sauted mushrooms (I saute them in either rendered smoked duck fat or smoked bacon grease, but you can use either regular butter or vegan butter if you choose)
4. I cooked a corned beef- used some of the broth and a bit of the meat, finely diced

Enjoy!

What things do you add to your oatmeal to make it interesting?

1. sweet corn and cumin
2. spinach and oregano
3. some of my favorite jam (am using rose hip jam, ginger jam or strawberry/rhubarb jam now)
4. I made a corned beef, then used some of the broth (did not cook cabbage or potatoes with the beef this time) and some of the meat, finely diced
5. mushrooms (I bought a smoked duck breast and rendered the fat to saute the mushrooms in, but you can use bacon fat instead)

Savory Oatmeal

I just tried a new recipe that I like a lot. I made a corned beef and saved the broth. I then added the broth with some of the meat to my steel-cut oats the next day- loved it!

Savory Oatmeal

I cook the oats in a crock pot with half soy milk and half water. I also put in some sea salt.

Oh, now- thanks to you! - I have to start writing these down- the avocado/soy/green onions sounds just too good.

Savory Oatmeal

I feel vindicated. Co-workers used to mock me when I brought in my breakfast because I was into savory oatmeals. I use steel cut oats (they are reasonably price when bought in bulk at my favorite health food store- one of the few bargains to be had there) I cook it in a crock pot- works like a charm.

1. Mushrooms and smoked bacon Cook the bacon in a medium frying pan. Remove the meat and dices- put aside for later. Saute the mushrooms and spring onions (you can use chives or any other type of onion) in the same pan. Add the diced bacon. Turn off the heat and put a lid on the pan so that it steams a bits and the flavors meld. Sprinkle mixture on the top of cooked oatmeal.

2. Corn and cumin. This sounds strange but cook the corn, add a bit of butter and a sprinkle of cumin. Put on top of the cooked oatmeal.

3 spinach and oregano- Saute the spinach in olive oil. Chop the oregano finely and add to the spinach. Cook until limp. Add to cooked oatmeal.

What was your favourite childhood concoction, which you now think is disgusting?

I used to work in a Burger King in North Carolina and we were forbidden to call them Suicides- the management thought that it was too offensive!

What was your favourite childhood concoction, which you now think is disgusting?

And I thought that I was the only one who at mayo sandwiches. But, it ran like this. When mom "forgot" to buy groceries, it was a lettuce sandwich until the lettuce ran out. Then it was mayo sandwiches until the mayo or bread ran out. Then, it was anything in the fridge that was fit to eat.

Between the Clorox and the Kitty Litter

WE are lucky in Florida- Publix has a great wine selection- I go for the Rex Gigante Cab any time. Even the 7-11' s now have a bit of range in their wines.

Best Cuban Restaurant in Orlando / Central Florida?

For a local version of Pollo Tropical, go to Pollo d'Oro on West Colonial. The chicken is marinated in citrus and you can get either black or red beans. All of the sides are great too.

Gin, anyone?

Similar to the Dutch gins in that the flavor of this gin is aromatic, give the French saffron gin by Gabriel Boudier of Dijon a try. I found a bottle in the duty free shop at the Charles de Gaulle airport and it is wonderful.
