I was thrilled to discover that the concept of Real Food is being taught in public schools. Hopefully we are raising a new generation of mindful eaters.
See the wonderful things that kids are learning here and vote!
In New York City, apparently 12 is old enough:
I am planning to host an election victory party this weekend. Probably a dinner thing. Maybe potluck, not sure. Anyone else doing this? Looking for original ideas. Thanks!
I have cookie tins that I have saved over the years. I usually pack my goodies in those and ask the hostess to return them after the party. Today, however, we are going somewhere and I don't really know the hostess that well. I would feel awkward reqesting my tin back.
I. Do you think it is rude to ask for the tins back?
2. Looking for other innovative ways to pack the goodies (blueberry bars today) with things around the house
We have been invited to a British Christmas celebration and I somehow became responsible for making mince pies, about which I know virtually nothing aside from what I just read in Joy of Cooking and Nigella's Domestic Goddess. Any tips from a pro? More specifically, are currants crucial? Where does one find glaceed cherries or can I substitute dried. Any advice would be much appreciated. What is the hallmark of an excellent mince pie?
I have finally sketched out my menu http://izzyeats.blogspot.com/2007/11/wheres-my-thanksgiving-menu.html but now with so many recipes from which to choose, I just can't decide. Give me your favorite (tried and true) recipes for the following (sans pork, grandpa won't eat it!)
Hopefully I will get some sleep tonight!
Every year I face the same dilemma: I have a fairly small oven and I have difficulty keeping everything warm while the turkey is being carved. We almost always sit down to lukewarm food. Any tips or suggestions would be much appreciated as my home kitchen lacks a salamander.
Would you rather have four fabulous side dishes or eight pretty good ones? Is it quality or quantity that counts for your menu?
What would you like to see on the Thanksgiving table? Do you expect a special vegetarian main course or are side dishes sufficient?
I used to use one and gave it up a few years ago. Interested to hear what others do.
Check here for my lengthy response:
I think I spend an inordinate amount so I am curious to hear what others spend, specify how many in your family..
How old were you when you first ate falafel? Where did you eat it? I think I was 17 and I ate it at the Olive Tree in NYC but I am not sure..still trying to conjure up the memories.
Do you eat it anyway? Pretend to like it? I am just not a good liar that way...
To me it was one of the quintessential chocolate cakes. Any tips on how I might procure this recipe from the now defunct restaurant?
