Thanks! I got a deal at Tap Phong on Spadina - 20% off.

Both the dinner plates and bowls are 12" instead of the usual 10". I could have bought 14", but that would have been excessive, especially for placing on a table. The side plates are 8", which work well for a first course and dessert.

I have a lot of versatility here - I can use the plates for saucy dishes, but with large braised dishes, I can go with the bowls, as they're large enough (and flat enough in the middle) that it still leaves plenty of room for presentation - and, more importantly, place to maneuver food for cutting.

As for the pasta - it's penne rigate with pancetta, portabello mushrooms, and basil.

Only if you feel like sharing... how much were the plates, with the 20% off?

I have a dark grey stoneware set, but over the past 5 years, I've broken 1 mug, 2 bowls, there's a large chip in 1 bowl, another mug got a large crack down the side and had to be thrown out.... stoneware is heavy and fragile. I'm ready for something new... provided it's a reasonable price (can't be wasting money on plates at the moment :p )

No problem at all.

Here were the discounted prices:

Plates: $6.39
Bowls: $11.99
Side plates: $2.07

+ taxes.

The regular prices were $7.99, $14.99, and $2.59, respectively.

Not sure if you can get 20% off for smaller quantities, but I'm sure you could get some sort of discount if you asked.

Considering that other plates I looked at (for what I wanted) would have cost me over $800 (some much, much more than that), I was quite happy to pay $280 all in for everything I got.

This stuff I got at Pusateri's, but I usually get it at Scheffler's at the St. Lawrence Market.

I didn't make the baguette - stopped at Bonour Brioche this morning for bread, croissants, and pain au chocolat.

I was hungry, so I made another half sandwich as above.

Dinner tonight:

890122316_92cb5de300_o.jpg


Smoked elk sausage, roasted gold beets, and wilted beet greens.

The roasted beets were fantastic, and the beet greens weren't close behind. The sausage was so-so.

Beets and greens are a sumer fave 'round these parts too! It's like 2 veggies for the price of one! (and meets the one from above, one from below rule)

i sent you a pm. you might have been jostling with the boy for zucchini blossoms (he took 30!!!)

here is a prototype dessert i made on the weekend:
n804500690_861945_8210.jpg

layered semifreddo - rum and coffee soaked ladyfingers with a gianduja semifreddo and a sweet cream semifreddo. it's supposed to be a take on tiramisu but in semifreddo form.

i should have soaked the ladyfingers more (as you can see) and i think in the future, instead of coffee (which makes them too icy) i'm going to soak the biscuits in a mixture of mostly cream and kahlua with some instant espresso...i'm hoping the fat and alcohol content will prevent them from over-freezing as they did. otherwise, i was very happy with my sweet cream and gianduja layer.

Mercy: Unfortunately there was no jostling. :( All the blossoms were gone before I could get there :mad:

The dessert looks good. I think you're going down the right road with more cream and alcohol. What happens if you use more of a cake-like biscuit as opposed to the savoiardi biscuit that's hard?

if 'yall want another hit on the zuc blossom tip since riverdale sounds dry, friday afternoon @ Woodbine Center way up in the rex has a market i think from noon'ish to 6pm and last week they had them kicking around.

i'm sick of them (due to work) already so no worries about hording them



anyways


this belongs in NC but since its a foodie thing... anybody who pays for a $55 steak and wants it Pittsburgh style needs a swift kick to the junk

Greg - if that happens again, call me. I'll pop up to the restaurant and slap the patron in the mouth. :p

The sugar beets were $3 a bunch - about 6-7 small beets per.

Hopefully you're able to make it later on tomorrow.

yeah i'll hollah @ cha when i get off, decide for me because i can't

i either bring an moscato d'asti or a touraine sav blanc?

kel, its charring the fuck out of the outside of the steak and keeping it rare/blue on the inside

most people know it as "black n' blue", but since we get alot of yanks in @ work for biz dinners they usually ask for it by city name: chicago, pittsburg, kansas city
