Can't argue.

I have never developed a taste for Worcestershire, and I can't really tell you why. I think it masks the flavor of the meet, although fans think it adds flavor notes that enhance. Matter of taste...

OTOH, my wife is a big fan of the Lea and Perrins variety. I will tell her about the Whole Foods offering!

I use it sparingly and find it enhances rather than masks, but of course it is all preference and taste. Rib Eye is the only time it is used by me.

Surly, Tell Contrary to shake it extra thoroughly before usage as it is loaded  with spices that tend to sink to the bottom of the bottle and coagulate. Warn her as well that a lesser amount than she usually places might be wise for her first try. "Bon Appetite"


                                   

Many thanks, GO.

Doomstead Diner Menu - 14,000 Year Old Toast
« Reply #961 on: July 21, 2018, 04:11:04 PM »
Archaeologists have uncovered the earliest evidence of bread-making at a site in northeastern Jordan. Dating back some 14,400 years, the discovery shows that ancient hunter-gatherers were making and eating bread 4,000 years before the Neolithic era and the introduction of agriculture. So much for the “Paleo Diet” actually being a thing.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Suggestive that a non-metal culture had perhaps previously developed agriculture and towns, but that the end of the last ice age had drowned their alluvial settlements in rising seas, leaving no trace.

The entire area of lost civilizations is a rabbit hole down which one can spend hundreds of entertaining, if fruitless hours. I have done so.

All over the world is evidence of submerged cities bearing witness to civilizations, the stories of which are lost in the mists of time. These lost sunken cities may bear evidence of cataclysmic events from thousands of years ago, long before the "great flood" of biblical and Sumerian retelling. The submerged structures off the coast of Dwarake in India, and ihe incredible underwater ruins of Yonaguni in Japan spring to mind.

I'm hoping someday archaeologists will uncover more about these stories which never been told.`

They won't be archaeologists from this civilization, that's for sure.

🥦 Doomstead Diner Veggie Side Dish of the Day: 7/23/2018
« Reply #965 on: July 23, 2018, 08:35:44 AM »
"EAT YOUR VEGETABLES!"

Mom ever yell that at you?  She was probably serving you Green Giant Peas & Carrots from a can. 🤮 Here at the Diner, we don't want to force feed you a veggie side dish, you should salivate over that as much as our fabulous Main Courses and Deserts.  Of course we always have on the menu our standard array of fresh veggies roasted, steamed or stir fried to your taste in terms of firmness, Asparagus, Broccoli, Carrots, Zucchini etc, all from non-GMO Heirloom Seeds organically or hydroponically grown at the Diner SUN☼stead.  We also offer a FREE  :icon_sunny: package of seeds with every full dinner including Main Course, 2 Sides and Dessert so you can grow your own at home as well.

For today, we are offering up on Special a fabulous Green Bean dish whipped up by our Head Chef RE after we traded some Smoked Salmon for 10 cases of Almonds from another SUN☼stead in CA, which hasn't dried up quite yet.  Hope you enjoy.

Tomorrow's side dish has bacon.  Today was all Vegan.

I actually never did this with Almonds, but I did do something similar with Pistachios.  Crunchy nuts and Al Dente Green Beans go together like pancakes and maple syrup.  At least when you still have teeth they do.  After that, stick to the pancakes.

Tpday's Veggie Side Dish Special is a perennial favorite, particularly for Bacon🥓 Lovers in the smooth and creamy cheese sauce and crunchy Panko topping.  Baked and served in their own individual ramekins.

Perfection.

The only thing that "creamy cheese sauce and crunchy Panko topping, baked and served in their own individual ramekins" doesn't improve is chocolate ice cream, and I'm not sure about that.

This Side Dish Special is always asked for by regular patrons of the Diner.   With a chef's choice of Mediterranean vegetables and what is in season in our own garden, you can always find new flavors and textures in this Italian inspired creation.

as yesterday's Italian inspired Veggie Special of the day demonstrates, since the Diner is not a single cuisine restaurant but rather one inspired by cuisine from all over the world, we dpn't just feature either veggies native to North merica or preparations that are most common in Western cooking.  Diner patrons are always pleased when one of our Asian Chefs, Won Long Dong has his turn at preparing the Veggie Special.  WLD hails from Szechuan Province, and is a Master with a Wok and always spicing up his dishes to a lively level of HEAT🔥.  Today he served up his Signature Veggie Special, Szechuan Vegetables.  Actually, his preparations will vary quit a bit depending what veggies are available to mix in, you can find anything from Snow Peas to Bamboo Shoots to Water Chestnuts to Bok Choi and more in there from time to time.  Szechuan Vegetables from WLD are also available as a Main Course served over Lo Main Noodles and is very popular with the Vegan crowd that frequents the Diner.

Hope you enjoy, and be sure to keep a pitcher of Ice Water close at hand.

🍆 Doomstead Diner Veggie Side Dish of the Day: 7/27/2018
« Reply #974 on: July 27, 2018, 06:46:54 PM »
Today's Veggie Side Dish special has a hint of Greece from before the time the Parthenon was burning to a crisp.  Our Greek Chef, Diogenes of Sinope prepares this dish, just as his ancestors did when the 300 were fending off the Persian Hordes at Thermopylae.

Here in the FSoA, it's a favorite amongst avid BBQers as a great accompanyment on the grill to your STEAK, Chicken or Fish main course.  It has a meaty texture that holds up well over the open flame, although you should still be careful not to gril at too high a temperature.  The flavors are enhanced by a good marinade overnight in the fridge, but I can't give you the one Diogenes uses, it's a 2000 year old secret.
