tomato sauce + chicken stock = tomato soup?

Don't see why that would not work. You could also use a veggie stock.

Should spaghetti sauce be heated to taste good?

I make uncooked tomato sauces but, always over hot cooked pasta, tossed just like a pesto sauce.

Keeping strawberries fresh ... in yogurt?

I often cut up and put in Greek Yogurt, they do last and the mix tastes better than the store stuff which is like eating jam, way to sweet.

If refrigerating tomatoes is supposed to be verboten, then what of gazpacho?

Serving it warm, may be a good pasta sauce or a hot tomato soup.

Gazpacho is a blend of many veggies, once processed, a chill brings out all the flavors. Unprocessed tomatoes, stand alone, IMO taste better at room temp. Curious, how do you like to eat most cheeses, room temp or cold.

Costco Frozen Shrimp (Bagged) from Vietnam

Just read a quick article, salt is used to prevent bacteria from growing as part of the cleaning the catch process. Appears to be quite logical.

No Sundried Tomatoes at Costco??

Oh that's smart, why not just write a comment to either the Costco website or at the store, they do listen and respond. It'll get a lot farther to stay positive.

Costco Frozen Shrimp (Bagged) from Vietnam

A brine consists of H2O, there is no mention of H2O on the label. AHHHHHHHHHH......SOOOOOOO who says salt isn't necessary to keep the product fresh, got some facts to back up your 'pumped' claim. I haven't seen you post a reference to that yet. Also, I'd like to see you come up with facts regarding Costco's product quality. Curious, what's your beef with Costco, can't stand a company that offers great product and pricing and that is also a great place to work. Your volley!

Just checked while at Costco, Frozen Shrimp ingredient list states shrimp, salt. That's it! I think it may be best if you invest time by going to Costco and verifying what they sell before bloviating about what isn't.

Good and cheap with no fridge.

In this case, competition is good and welcome, there are a lot who need help, especially with receiving a meal. Keep up your effort, even feeding a few is bigger than you think. You'll be blessed for your effort.

Yes, there are a lot that will not enter shelters or soup kitchens and will still pick trash cans for food before eating the lunch we gave them. They always seem to want to save the food we gave them for another day. Also, most have some type of mental disorder or other illness and we need to remember that.

turning out Tarte Tatin

If you keep it in the pan, you'll need to warm it up to get it out of the pan without it becoming a disaster.

Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

These employees are receiving no pay, truly amazing and very loyal, give them a few bucks as well.

Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

I think with his being becoming public, the deal is probably close to done. ATD most likely has all his resources ready.

Effect of Market Basket stoppage/boycott on inventory of other chains?

I usually stop by MB for small stuff and can wait till this drama is over. I'm not going to patronize, excuse me get robbed, S&S, Shaw's or Star, Wegman's et al. MB has the best all round, sale or regular, prices.

"Cooking Block" What Do You Do?

In Intervention is necessary, you need to go to a nice restaurant and order something, hopefully a great choice, you'd never make at home. That'll get to go'in!
