How do I make a good coffee at 7-Eleven?

Wow, you were fancy in high school. We had to resort to Strawberry Hill poured into Big Gulp cups.

Thank Heaven for 7-11.

Who makes good BBQ Baked Beans?

I found that too. I looked it up a few years ago after my dad mentioned that he's never had better beans than Love's back in the day. Thought if there was some more US locations I could maybe special order some beans, freeze them, and then wrap em up for Christmas...but nope. Only Indonesia. So weird.

Has anyone seen me?

I just looked up at their menu and oh boy! I can't wait!! I also just realized that I've been to the one in Nashville. I want to try every single flavor!

So Far I've Made (from Thanksgiving leftovers):

Hahaha...It's been a blissful day of two movies, some snoozes and dog cuddling, and tons of carbs...I don't know why I bothered buying a salad. As if anything remotely healthy is going to make it's way into my system today.

So Far I've Made (from Thanksgiving leftovers):

So an update an hour later...Threw on clothes, walked the dogs, went to the grocery store and bought the following...
Mayo
Soft white sandwich rolls
Cape Cod potato chips
Mrs. Smith frozen apple pie
Caesar salad kit
2 liter of Coke
Sara Lee onion bagels
Cream cheese
tomatoes (for the bagels)

after the grocery store I took a quick shower, and put some fresh PJ's on...duvet and pillows are going on the couch, and it's going to be a Netflix and food orgy up in herrr.... First a bagel, then later a TDay sandwich...(with all my leftovers, plus the mayo and sandwich rolls) with potato chips, then the Caesar for dinner...and apple pie allllll day long!!!!

It should be noted that I DO NOT eat like this normally...I'm pretty strict with my diet. So you can understand my excitment right now :)

Thanksgiving for one - What would you make?

I used to work at a restaurant that had a big "feed the homeless" Thanksgiving every year...starting about a week from the actual day, they would turn down volunteers, because there were too many.

Going to make a WF and possibly Bristol Farms run tomorrow-i will report back in case anyone else in interested!

Has anyone seen me?

I used to work at a restaurant that had a goat cheesecake with a cherry sorbet-I LOVED it!! I have a feeling, even without tasting it, that I will be in the love camp.

Has anyone seen me?

I used to see this ice cream in Gelsons all the time. I have always wanted to try it, but couldn't justify the price. A few months ago I said, screw it, I'm getting that ice cream...and now I can't find it!! Gelsons still carries the brand, just not the flavor...I haven't yet asked them if they can special order it, but before I do, just wondering, has anyone tried this?

Discontinued at Trader Joe's: July 2014-December 2014

Oh no!!! I'm going to go look for it tomorrow!!!! I love roasting cauliflower with it :(

YAY to the satsumas. Very easy to peel and juicy and sweet. Maybe not super flavorful, but I also have shitty sinuses to it's probably that.

Weird, I sometimes get those unchewable pieces in the bag of frozen roasted corn too.

Poor girl. That silverlake one in insane. If it's not too far from you, try the Hollywood one on Selma and Vine. Since they have underground parking, it's marginally better (I know you weren't complaining about parking, it's just the first thing I think of when deciding which TJ's to go to!)

Belcampo Cheeseburger

Went today, I wasn't hungry but my friend got the Becampo cheeseburger, said it was fantastic. He also got fries. Those fries are FUCKING FANTASTIC!!! I think someone said upthread that they were like In-N-Out fries; that alone made me not order them (I hate In-N-Outs fries. Hate them.) Thank goodness my friend ordered them and was kind enough to share.They must have changed the way they cook them or something, because these were crispy, dark gold, and very salty (maybe too salty for some people, not for me though!) Maybe almost better than McDonalds fries. (That's the highest compliment I can give any fries.)

Thanksgiving for one - What would you make?

I'd probably get a take-out "Thanksgiving" meal (sliced roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatos, gravy, cranberry sauce) and then make the mother of all Thanksgiving day sandwiches on a French roll with extra mayo :) I might make a side of stuffing, though, so I could have leftovers in the morning!

Whiskey/Bourbon Tasting - food pairing suggestions?

bacon wrapped dates
"pig candy" (bacon made on the grill (on aluminum) covered with lots of brown sugar, some ceyanne and chili flakes)
vanilla whiskey bread pudding
carmelized onion and fig tarts (spread pastry or filo dough with fig jam, top with caramalized onions and gruyere)
mini grilled cheese with caramelized onion and bacon jam

Using dates as a substitute for sugar

No shame in your no-filling game!!! :) FYI-don't freeze the berry filled ones, just refrigerate. Frozen raspberries aren't as awesome as non-frozen ones.

So yummy! Try wrapping the paste around a fresh raspberry. So. Freaking. Delish.

Stainless steel fry pan - how to fry eggs without them sticking!!

I would use ghee or avocado oil. They won't burn at high temps. I make eggs every morning, and they never stick in my stainless steel pan. But I don't make fried eggs, I make scrambled, and I put the lid on until they are done. It might be too moist for fried eggs with that method.

Using dates as a substitute for sugar

I cut added sugar and processed food out of my diet a few months ago...but I have an insane sweet tooth. I'm human, I indulge occasionally (a LIFETIME without processed food or added sugar is next to impossible, and really, who wants that?) Dates have been great for getting a little sweet snack in occasionally. I made a date/walnut/dried coconut paste in the Cuisinart, and make little balls, roll in more coconut, and freeze. Perfect little sweet treats.

burger and a glass of wine

Village Idiot has a good burger (I believe they do all their butchering in-house), good wine, and, if you get a table with a window, good people watching on Melrose.

Christmas Dinner: Adults-Individual Beef Wellingtons; Kids-???

Same here. If my brother or I absolutely refused dinner, then maybe there would be a Cup O Noodles in the cupboard for us. If not, we were SOL.

Christmas Dinner: Adults-Individual Beef Wellingtons; Kids-???

I never had Beef Wellington until my 20's, but I would have LOVED it as a kid! Maybe have some PB&J fixings on hand just in case, that way you can concentrate on all the other things you have to do!

stuffed peppers... something different??

What about a fritatta in a pepper? Saute sausage and veggies, throw in a bowl, mix with a few whisked eggs, throw some cheese in, and pour in a pepper and bake until the eggs aren't wobbly anymore. Might have to parboil the pepper first, though.
