I've got the dad here. But my family and close friends are in Ontario so it's a bit rough. I've had my mum come and stay up here a few times. The first time was a nightmare though.. overcrowded apartment, non stop screaming baby, drunk mum, overtired parents could have gone a lot better!

It's finally getting to be nice out here.. 20 plus today so getting outside and feeling an actual sunray hit your face is welcoming and opens up more options

Good. Yeah the parents seem not to be all that helpful.

Yes, spring weather makes everything feel more possible. I hope you have a very nice pram.

Has to double as a fruit cart for all the Canadian fruit borealis claims is in season.

I found the foodie thread!



Dinner tonight: Add 1 1/2 lbs of chicken breast. Chop the onion and bell pepper. Dump it all into your slow cooker (drain the can of corn) and cook it on low all day.

I use canned kidney beans and canned tomatos. And chili peppers and a lot of cumin because I love cumin. Also celery and green pepper if I have them.

But no corn. Corn is good fresh, steamed, boiled, or especially grilled. It does not belong in chili or anything else except shepherd's pie.

I don't really like corn all that much tbh, ymmv.

Being a city boy, growing and canning my own vegetables has never been practical.


I use canned tomatoes quite often. My cooking ups in quality when the farmer's markets start selling fresh produce

Canned beans are fine, and Ro-tel flavored canned tomatoes are great.



I don't eat corn, and can't tell what you have in the Old El Paso can, looks like Jalapenos, which are also fine canned but I get San Marcos brand.

what's in the tin on the far right, LH?

also, isn't that a lot of liquid to put in the slow cooker (looks like 1L of chicken stock)?

This recipe makes a lot of soup. My slow cooker is a 6 quart (5.5 liter) model. We have about 2/3rds of the soup as left over for lunches

Cumin.

I made something today from a recipe.. it was supposed to be Spicy Sweet Potatoes with Quinoa.

It wasn't spicy because I didn't have jalapeno peppers to add.

But it was-
-Sweet potatoes (I baked them into small cubes) in the oven, browned/almost blackened
-Yellow peppers and red onions fried in oil with cumin and chili powder (then added water and chicken stock)
-Quinoa cooked separate
-Chopped fresh cilantro
-Squeezed lime juice

Mixed it all together, thinking that it would be a weird combination, but it was pretty delicious. I was surprised.

We stopped at a Farmer's Market yesterday and I have some beautiful heirloom tomatoes and some fresh lettuce. I picked up some apple wood smoked slab bacon from the butcher, so it will BLTs for dinner tonight!

I had a BLT yesterday, but the dog got most of my bacon. Today it's leftovers or a tv-dinner.

I got my first job at age 14 at a local Italian restaurant. The Matriarch of the family seemed to be a thousand years old to me but was more likely in her late seventies. She spoke very little English, but she ruled her kitchen with an iron fist. Every bite of food coming out of that kitchen was expected to be perfect. Every ingredient was made in house.



My first kitchen job was the salad station. One evening, I had just made a new batch of the House Italian dressing at was getting set up to start the rush. Mama C stopped and dipped her finger into the dressing I had just made and tasted it. She picked up the container and tossed it onto the Dishwasher's counter. She grabbed me by the ear and dragged me to the walk in cooler and said "Fallo coorrettamnte!" (Italian for make it right)


My first batch had tasted ok to me, but no one wanted to make that lady angry. I made the next batch more carefully and when it was done even I could taste the difference. I took it to Mama C to taste. She smiled at me and sent me back to my station.


This is where I began to put thought into what I was cooking. She expanded that small Little Italy restaurant into a local empire that lasted 75 years. The last one closed two years ago. Her great grandchildren were no longer interested in running restaurants.

I learned to really cook from two different house mates. The first was a Jewish student a few years older than me. We were, ten of us at one point, renting a huge house together and pooling our resources. That woman was a fantastic cook, and taught me how to appreciate ingredients and understand the flavour profiles that differentiate ethnic cuisines, including Italian, Russian-American Jewish, and Chinese.

A few years later, my housemate was a Burmese woman, and she taught me how to cook with coconut milk and curry spices and all things Burmese.

In between, students I lived with in the Netherlands taught me about Dutch food and Indonesian food.

I count myself very lucky to have had those people's influences.
