Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Yoji, I don't know anything about this, but I sure as heck would not eat any mushrooms that I bought anywhere except a reputable grocery or a reputable mushroom farmer. And a grocery will not sell you a DIY kit, so I'd start looking for farmers. Maybe go to the next farmer's market and start asking ...

Re: Fucking Cell Phones

My phone has been doing a new, cute thing, where frequently when I leave wifi it says it's off data and cannot do anything except make phone calls, not even send texts. It does this now even in places where I have not had problems before (or while I was in Chicago, where I did not have problems late...

I bought this sake on a whim from the Japanese grocery because of the label, but it was actually pretty good! And now I'm left with this little glass cup that's too cute to throw away.

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

fwiw Thad, my mother got LASIK when she was about 70. She mentioned that all the colors got brighter when she did. So I think there are probably bonuses to getting it older, as well as drawbacks?

Michigan strawberries are in season! I made some cream biscuits and whipped some cream and greek yogurt. I refuse to eat anything except strawberries for the three weeks they're in season.

Re: Race: The Final Frontier

So, it's already illegal to teach about the new Juneteenth federal holiday in 15 states. I do not for the life of me know how any of those legislators expect that to work out. Can you link to that? I googled that and couldn't find any sources other than tabloids. Unless you mean Juneteenth falls un...

My KitchenAid is never not out. And absolutely worth washing the paddle attachment to save myself that much arm fatigue.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Making puffs again, this time omitting the sugar and going to try to make a paste of smoked salmon, creme fraiche, capers and dill to fill them with. I got some pro tips from Serious Eats-- heat the dough on the stove to 165-175F, let cool to 145F before adding the eggs, use the stand mixer with the...

Mharr, I baked them on a silpat with 1.5" circles pre-printed. I moved them to the aluminum tray for transport. They fell right off the silpat.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

It was an eggs problem with the cream, I'll try the strainer. The choux was quite cool, I just don't quite understand how I was supposed to incorporate eggs into a firm ball of dough.

*I'm using the Ladureé _Sucré_ cookbook and assuming the recipes for French pastry are legit af.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Choux and pastry cream both look a little lumpy, but the cream at least tastes good. Will attempt baking in the morning.

Nope! Never done any sort of choux. I've read the recipe a lot of times though. If it's a Food Failure it's no great loss though.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

I'm going to try making cream puffs! Hoping to prep the choux pastry batter and the pastry cream today, and pipe, bake, and assemble tomorrow. I've never done these before so fingers crossed.
It's ambitious but I did talk myself down from making Paris-Brest instead.

Re: "Coronavirus" is the category, dangit. (COVID-19 thread)

I'm planning on wearing masks around strangers for a long time yet. Not sure what that means for work yet, terrified actually about what it means in late August when tens of thousands of people from across the world converge on my town. Hoping I'm allowed to keep my office door shut and window open ...

Re: Shittier Days

I hope you can figure something out, Thad. I had a migraine last for a month solid once, it was awful. (Got an MRI and a CAT and eventually went to ER. Nobody ever found a cause.) I'm starting to think everything's too complicated for doctors to find causes.
