Sunday Food Thread goes Top Chef 3/29

The latest season (#17) of Top Chef started a week and a half ago. We’re watching it and I really miss old-time AV Club® write-ups and the comments that ensued. I don’t have the skills to start/maintain a good weekly recap of the show but would be happy to read one if someone wants to start it up. If you’re watching the show and have an opinion on it maybe start a subthread. Heck if you’re not watching the show and have an opinion on it start a subthread, this is the Avocado after all. I’m kind of ambivalent about … Continue reading Sunday Food Thread goes Top Chef 3/29

The Sunday Food Thread is Sheltering in Place 3/22

We’re fortunate to have plenty of storage in our house and always keep a fairly well-stocked pantry. Illinois, among other states, is enacting (enforcing?) a Shelter in Place order and grocery stores are staying open. I resisted the urge to run out before the order took effect and we do a lot of home cooking as it is. Today was a weird miso-mushroom-tahini concoction that was way better than it sounds or had any right to be. I know this is kind of a continuation of last weeks thread, I’ll go for something different next week, promise. Continue reading The Sunday Food Thread is Sheltering in Place 3/22

Hoarders? Sunday Food Thread 3/15

Any experiences with panicked hoarders/hoarding due to COVID-19? Wednesday night after leaving an event I wanted some ice cream so I stopped at a local grocery store around 9:45pm expecting to buzz in and out with my treasure only to find long lines at every register (even the self-checkout which I don’t use). It never really occurred to me to hoard anything but on the same token we usually do a good job of keeping our larder pretty well stocked. Not bomb shelter stocked but we do like to have enough on-hand pantry items to make a lot of different … Continue reading Hoarders? Sunday Food Thread 3/15

Road Trip. Sunday food thread hits the road, 3/8

I know it’s a little early for the big summer road trip season, spring break isn’t even here yet, but I guess I’m feeling the itch for some traveling (corona virus be damned). What do you do for trips? Do you pack a lot of goodies and try not to stop or do you meander and look for out of the way roadside diamonds in the rough? We tend to do a little of both so usually pack a couple hard-boiled eggs, some cheese chips & veggies, and maybe cookies for the sweet tooth. If we get the urge we’ll … Continue reading Road Trip.

Late Valentines Sunday Food Thread 2/16

Did you celebrate V-Day or did you take a personal day? Most importantly what did you eat to either celebrate being in a relationship or celebrate not being in a relationship? We don’t celebrate holidays so it was a usual Friday band practice but we did go out for pizza afterwards. The restaurant had a V-Day heart shaped pizza but we went with the traditional round one. I ate too much and then didn’t sleep well! Continue reading Late Valentines Sunday Food Thread 2/16
