Heavily redacted I assume.

Oh man…oysters…that triggered a beer response in me… WHERE is this place?

Hyman’s CHS?


Yep. Holy crap, those oysters were huge.

Apparently the best time to go is on a Tuesday when it’s 30 degrees outside.


Wow, Pavlova is AWESOME! Basically a crunchy merengue that melts in your mouth topped with whipped cream and berries. Very light and airy. Highly recommended.

Here’s one I whipped up in about a minute …


It doesn’t look too good there because I’m half way into it at that point lol. I’d even be tempted to have a glass of red wine with that!


Does anyone havea air fryer? Sounds like an amazing invention…


Has anyone ever tried Impossible Burger?


Ooh, yes I have! Over the summer, I was attempting to date this Vegan girl I’ve known for a while here in the area. She got SUPER excited when Impossible burgers started appearing in stores in Durham.

Needless to say, they’re quite good. Go very well with bacon and pimiento cheese.


Things we don’t do for some good buns… :roll_eyes:

But it really sounds good- wish they would actually sell it, in Italy.
I’d buy it… honest!


So excited…this is dinner tonight…(stock image…not the ACTUAL dinner). Gonna need two bottles of wine this evening…(that means I’ll get a lot of work done!)…



Breakfast from last week. Creamcheese pancakes rolled around some freshly chopped strawberries and whipped cream. Flipping them is problematic as they’re quite delicate.

Yesterday, I had a sirloin dropped into my lap because the butcher had too much stock intake. So hell yes. I made up a homemade marinade, let it soak, then pan seared it and had it with steak fries.

Marinade was:
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons of dried basil
1 1/2 tablespoons of garlic powder
And 1 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper.

For the steak fries/potato wedges, just throw them in a bowl, apply olive oil and spices as you like. I went with salt, pepper, basil, garlic, and paprika.
