Here's what it looked like when Bobbi brought it in from the grill and lifted the lid off the pan: The turducken (w/sausage stuffing!) itself was lifted out of its savory nest and sliced up: Piled on a plate with veggies, mashed potatoes, and the whole thing slathered in bacon-mushroom gravy and waiting to be garnished with a healthy scoop of assorted mushrooms: The photos don't do it justice. I just grabbed the D7000 & 16-80mm f/2.8-4E and tried to snap a few shots at ISO800 by av...

Chips flavored like horse meat, poison blowfish, and maggot cheese

Prankster product maker MSCHF, who infamously produced the Lil Nas X sneakers with real human blood in them, are now hawking Illegal Chips flavored to taste like "banned" foods: horse meat; Fugu (aka poison blowfish); and casu marzu, the Sardinian cheese teeming with maggots. — Read the rest

New carnivorous plant discovered, right under our noses

Ever since Darwin first wrote on carnivorous plants, in his still-fun-to-read 1875 book Insectivorous Plants, there have only been 11 independent origins for plants that eat animals. Now scientists have discovered a new one, the "North American flowering plant Triantha occidentalis", also known as the "western false asphodel." — Read the rest

Pizza Hut Will Use AI... to Recommend What Pizza to Get... Based on... the Weather

Pizza Hut has posited a strange question: What weather is pizza weather? Perhaps it’s a riddle. Or perhaps a machine-learning salesman in a brimmed straw hat waltzed into a Pizza Hut marketing meeting with a whistle and a tune:Read more...

Comment on chocolate ice cream sandwiches by Gretchen

These look delicious! If I wanted to use homemade ice cream (like the peanut butter ice cream from David Lebovitz, YUM), would it be too soft straight from the churn? Should I let it firm up a bit in the freezer before filling the sandwiches?

Chick-fil-A is under attack over its CEO's ties to a Christian charity accused of trying to squash proposed LGBTQ protections. Here's what we know about the chain's donations.

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy's donations to a Christian charity have sparked backlash. Cyrus McCrimmon/The Denver Post/Getty Images Chick-fil-A is facing backlash over the CEO's support of a charity linked to opposition to new LGBTQ protections. The chain itself does not donate to the Christian charity or political groups. Other chains including McDonald's and Wendy's donate to politicians who oppose the Equality Act.

Pork Loin

Bobbi had another winner on the grill Saturday night, with a variation on her favorite theme. There are photos. I'm beginning to think that the capers and some kind of nutty, savory fungus are the keys to the whole thing. . [Author: Tam]

Overheard in the Kitchen...

RX: "Ask a Brit for an English muffin, they don't know what you mean."Me: "That's because they call it a 'spanner'."RX: "There's no real English equivalent, actually. It's not really a scone. It's the Dick Van Dyke's Cockney accent of breakfast foods."— Tamara K. (@TamSlick) April 5, 2021 [Author: Tam]

Deep Dish Delish

Bobbi has a profusely illustrated post up with her recipe for yesterday's dinner, which was...and I am not kidding here...the best food I've had in a long time.  I stuffed myself until I could barely move and, in an unprecedented move, left most of a slice of corned beef on the plate so I could finish up the vegetables. The oyster mushrooms and big chunks of russet potatoes that had been stewing in the juices in the bottom of the pan were amazing. I nearly floated blissfully up into the air li...

Variations on a Theme

While preparing last Sunday's delicious dinner, Bobbi was already musing aloud about plans for today. I have to say, it smells and looks delicious. Trying to not enquire about the timer every five minutes is difficult. . [Author: Tam]

Stewed in its own juices.

Bobbi has blogged up her recipe from last night's dinner, which was truly delicious. I bought the fish sauce she mentioned when I was searching for garum, on one of my ancient Rome jags. It's enhanced several recipes lately with its yummy umami goodness. . [Author: Tam]

Beef Tea Subscription

There's a brand of dehydrated cuppa soup they sell at the Fresh Market around the corner which has a "Vietnamese Beef Phở" flavor that is just delicious. I mean, as phở-qua-phở, it's just mediocre, but the broth? Yum! I could sip that umami beef tea from a quart thermos on a cold winter afternoon. Best of all, I discovered that Amazon will deliver it by the eight-pack. You can even subscribe!  (Beef Tea Subscription is the name of my next band, by the way.) . [Author: Tam]

Comment on gingerbread biscotti by Lian

This recipe is a keeper. Yum! I kicked up the ginger quotient another notch with the addition of a cup of chopped crystallized ginger—I heartily recommend it! And I sprinkled the cinnamon sugar over the egg wash before baking, rather than coating the individual biscotti afterward. (I needed only a tablespoon or two of cinnamon sugar.) ****Biscotti hack: For the second baking, I place the biscotti on a cooling rack (rather than a baking sheet), which I place directly on the oven rack. This obvia...

Bobbi cooked a corned beef brisket & cabbage, with some taters, onions, and carrots for New Year's Day feasting. We enjoyed the meal while watching the third episode of Season 5 of The Expanse. Other than that, it was a slow day around Roseholme Cottage. It was icy out when I woke up and stayed overcast all day, although it warmed into the forties in the afternoon and melted off the dusting of snow from yesterday. . [Author: Tam]

An out-of-this-world dinner...

 Bobbi worked the magic with the turducken on the little backyard grill yesterday.  I swear, we have gotten more than our money's worth out of that janky little $29.99 sheet metal grill. It's seen probably a decade's service at this point, mostly through the virtue of keeping it covered when not in use.Over dinner, we watched the new Chesley Bonestell documentary on Amazon. In the documentary, there's an interview with Bob David, who works as a photographer and historian for the Golden Gate Br...

Happy Thanksgiving!

 The turducken is has sat in the refrigerator thawing, and soon the grill will be started and then Bobbi will make the magic happen! Fortunately, Roseholme Cottage's Thanksgiving traditions were already fully compatible with the Time of the 'Rona. What most people call "social distancing", introverts call "Thursday". [Author: Tam]

Dining Local

 Local hangout Moe & Johnny's has been shuttered, hopefully temporarily.During the summer, they'd converted the parking lot into awning-covered outdoor dining, but that deprived them of all their parking spaces, and parking there was fraught as it is, with a tiny lot and limited spaces.I got lunch there a few times over the summer, dining on the patio, and business was noticeably slower. Of course, the coffee house business in the morning and the lunch crowd were always ancillary to the big even...

Yesterday was a good day...

 ...and I didn't have to use my AK. Which is a good thing, because I don't have an AK. Leave the peasant conscript rifles for the peasants, I say. (Just kidding. Save the hate mail.)Anyway, Thursday and Friday were unseasonably warm for mid-November here in Indy, but the weather was supposed to revert to type for the weekend, so I wanted to get in some outdoor dining while the getting was good.Thursday was almost a scrub because, despite the thermometer briefly reaching a freakishly balmy 68°F, ...

Automotif CLXXIX...

I was sitting at a sidewalk table, enjoying a small "Hot Momma"* pizza at Byrne's, when this Aubergine '73 911T rolled up and parked in front of the Safeway across the street.Did I scoop up my camera (D7000 and 16-80mm f/2.8-4), get up from my table, and run across the street to take photos? Yes. Yes I did.* Pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, and jalapenos. . [Author: Tam]
