    What's on your plate today?

    Tomato salad with olive oil, ricotta cheese, fresh basil and balsamic vinegar pearls. We had this at a restaurant last weekend and I decided to try making it at home.

    What's on your plate today?

    I was pursuing YouTube cooking videos this morning, and found one for Shakshuka so I decided to make it for dinner. Very tasty and easy! About 45 mins start to finish, with about half of that time waiting for Mrs_Nihon to get home. Sauteed onions, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes that cook...

    Fountain Pens 2023 - Anyone?

    When I read this thread and thought about getting back to fountain pens, I bought these disposable pens from Amazon to see if I could rekindle my love of ink. I figured a cigar's worth of pens was a good starting point...

    You're missing a couple of letters. Add "sleeping" and you'll get them all.

    What's on your plate today?

    Seared venison loin with port wine demi glace, sauteed spinach, cauliflower mash. Mrs_Nihon gave it her approval. I might even have gotten a husband point for having dinner ready when she got home from work!

    Anyone follow Formula 1?

    I watched the F2 highlights and there was tons of action. Granted, there's always more action in little league than in pro baseball, but maybe there's something that F1 can learn from F2. Even Max said it was boring!

    Indy 500 2024

    It was a very entertaining race and worth waiting all day to watch! Congrats to Josef for #2 and the Captain for #20!!

    Indy 500 2024

    Personally, I root for the sport. Everyone in the field could win, and they all would have a great storyline. Penske getting #20 is a serious threat. It would be great to see AJ bag another W. Still can't believe Dixie only has one win here. Would really love to see Graham, Marcus or...

    Anyone follow Formula 1?

    I know Monaco has a long lineage but modern F1 cars are just too wide for the track. If F1 is going to keep racing there, they really need to figure out how to make it entertaining.

    What's on your plate today?

    Here's my entry to this year's company BBQ contest: Sous vied and grilled leg of lamb with a port wine demi glace, balsamic roasted onions, grilled cherry tomatoes, and grilled garlic naan. Garnished with micro greens, crispy beet roots and pistachios.

    What's on your plate today?

    I used this as the demi base, then did a port wine reduction with shallots and thyme and combined the two. Very tasty!

    Testing out a new demi glace technique: Sous vide rack of lamb, cauliflower mash and steamed asparagus with a port wine demi.
