  1. I hope copying this link works. Fun once it gets started, and then a tribute to health care workers that choked me up a bit. https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2FPhishatMSG%2Fstatus%2F1332711374238208000%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR2-IEOdrZBusxa5kldoQZWQcOhqO4mNAk8UJL_5ZlQdNWCxwtclaO9N-G8&h=AT2-cK0p6YJGOHE07bKYZTyrHo_BtnpKou-KTBbSICcGnfiIVwmJwROhQIuynZFKJDz7fJ3sxFSwMnZkTKrZ64CMWXGnosByiWS_XYBQa3ytdcg9IoF3MzN_ySEnVgPBZrEi&__tn__=H-R&c[0]=AT08I873NQs2sF-juN2MgpSpDW_0TK6WsyeamO6TVVsOa0I7VWFWGMY47cTRGgGwLdkNv7uTzx5ohXUs1f39vB9dD4qR3xdCRZa36vqDZqIet-JuPpe8XYhvIr4tUiGdOqb2
  2. Congratulations jillyf and all of Australia & New Zealand too. I see the numbers from Oceania and want to believe we can move towards your numbers here in The US. Every winter Central Virginia receives certain days where a southern breeze blows wonderful weather up from our Florida friends. Our Thanksgiving get together began with 70F 21C weather outside, & mostly sunny skies. Lots of space in the backyard so everyone, who wanted to, could sit down, remove masks and be socially distant and catch up. We lucked out & adjusted. However both wife and I are
  3. Looks delicious! Almond extract from Odessa should be superb if like the almond paste from there.
  4. Have good day tomorrow everyone! Baking ahead for tomorrow's take home pot luck - cranberry-orange bread with a big assist from King Arthur Flour in Vermont. Hoping it won't be awkward to encourage those who come to fill their Gladware containers (provided) and leave...
  5. Lots of good, valid opinions here. Included tours vs included alcohol included made me think. I dislike caviar, tried it anew on Silversea cruises, but still found it not to my taste. Only now as I read these posts do I find myself asking why should I be subsidizing others' taste for those weird salty fish eggs? It should be simple enough to say caviar available for a fee... To really enjoy myself I should consistently choose the most expensive item on the menu...?? No. Stop self. We are on this ship of this luxury line because we want to enjoy ourselves without worrying ab
  6. Same here. For the 4 kids in the immediate area, we are going to try a takeout version of pot luck dinner. Drop off or pick up food at our house between 1 and 2, take what you want home with you and heat it up there, get the visit done in 15 minutes or less, wear mask except for the little tykes. Made certain they knew totally ok to skip: two accepted, 2 declined. For the families in Charlottesville and Chicago, no get togethers at all, but as Lois suggests, we are setting up a zoom with the Chicago branch.
  7. Thanks for all the help on the unidentified vegetable, I googled every suggestion and the pictures always matched. There must be some differences apart from appearance between them, hopefully not critical in the chicken cabbage soup I'll make tonight. Store bought yesterday fresh sourdough bread on the side. The Thai salad sounded intriguing, but didn't have the ingredients on hand. We're overdue for some Thai cuisine here.
  8. Lots of food for thought there Chrism. This is going to take some real leadership.
  9. Bought this at a farmer's market, the farmer told me what it was, then we proceeded to have an enjoyable conversation about potatoes (of course!) and apples, etc. Got in the car, drove home, and then could not remember for wife what it was. Its not just cabbage. My turn for dinner tomorrow night, hoping the cooler can bail me out.
  10. I thought Chas' pic of Canadian name turned out rather good Mysty. Not sure I want to see a photo of Moose Cheesecurd though. Fletcher's dinner looks superb. JP - Italian tonight I'm guessing...
  11. A man and his dog were walking along a road. The man was enjoying the scenery, when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead. He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years. He wondered where the road was leading them. After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road. It looked like fine marble. At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight. When he was standing before it he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the
  12. this is interesting rucrazy & agreed taxatty - also will be interesting to see the global response
  13. Will do Mysty, great idea, the outside still looks good (inside not so much) Thanks, gonna go with that. Only question now is if I can pass off the French replacement as a Christmas present for my OH
  14. we bought a private label (off-brand) Dutch Oven maybe 6 months ago and it will soon be filling up our local landfill, next one will be Le Creuset, or, what about Lodge?
