Challah makes the best french toast in the world.

slice it and dry it out the night before you plan to make it - then try this:

That's the way I make french toast! I probably picked it up from watching his show. It really does make fantastic french toast. I'll stuff it some times with either a fruit mixture or a cream cheese & honey combo.

marscapone mixed with some sugar and vanilla is a very good topper too.

this was the hit of tonight's dinner (in addition to the Sauerbraten).

Tyler Florence's celery root/horseradish mashed potatoes:

- Cut 2 celery roots and 3 lbs of idaho or other baking potatoes into 1 inch cubes
- boil in salted water for 15-20 min until soft
- mash or rice
- stir in 1 cup of heavy cream, half a stick of unsalted butter, and 1 tablespoon of horseradish
- salt/pepper to taste
- drizzle some EVOO and sprinkle some fresh chives over the top and serve

I got a mushroom log for Christmas.  It should start producing in a couple of weeks.  Shiitakes.

I've never heard of a mushroom log, so I looked them up... what a great idea.

I've been into pozole lately...it's an ancient Mexican stew made from hominy, chiles, and (since the Spanish conquest) pork shoulder.  Apparently in pre-Columbian times they didn't use pork (if you get my drift).

if you ever happen to be near the salt lake city airport, check out red iguana. i might have had the greatest meal in my life there. had cochinita pibil. could hardly finish it, then needed to help my gf finish her chicken mole of some kind because i couldn't let it go to waste and couldnt take it home with me on the plane. all hail the popular opinion of yelp

Coworker brought in some deer bologna and deer jerky.  Excellent.  I should go hunting just so I could turn the whole deer into jerky.  I love the stuff.

We are headed to the Lanham Wegmans, I'm so excited.

VERDICT: That is a top-notch Wegmans. Very friendly and helpful employees, very friendly customers as well, I think everyone is elated that the store is there. There's Costco gas in the center, too, bonus points for that. The store is pristine and very well stocked. Worth the schlep.

I did a price compare back in PA, and I would spend the same at Walmart as I did at Wegmans. The difference at Wegmans is the "ooh, a piece of candy" effect, where you buy extra stuff you don't need because it looks delicious. At least that's my experience.
