For those who like to read about cooking, check out [ profile] midweekmeal. It's a fun new kosher cooking blog written by a friend's brother (culinary school grad who works at a local restaurant) and his roommate, who apparently is similarly food-oriented.

And the mainstream media has picked up the story! TJ's should be paying attention by now, let's hope they'll respond...

For those following the saga, here's more news on the Trader Joe's chocolate-chip story.

For those who have been following this story, here's the latest news on the Trader Joe's chocolate-chip situation. Adds some clarity to the various rumors flying around.

Also shows that if you haven't, you should still sign the petition! Hopefully if they see that their customers are unhappy they'll go back to the way things were.

For those who haven't heard, Trader Joe's chocolate chips are changing from pareve to dairy. This creates a problem for anyone who keeps kosher and/or is vegetarian, vegan, or lactose-intolerant. Save the (pareve) chocolate chips - sign the petition!

Finally got around to posting pictures of the cookies I made for [ profile] lovensong87's birthday...

The forecast for Sunday is gorgeous... perfect day for a barbecue!

For those of us who've always wanted a tour of the Fluff factory...

The Fluffernutter was up for official state sandwich today! Can't find the vote results yet, though...

Is it sad that when I saw the headline Mandelbrot is a perfect treat for
Rosh Hashana
, I thought of fractals? (I've always known the other as "mandel bread"...)

For the mothers out there... baking with children (no, not as an ingredient). (I do hope this is exaggerated...)

I usually take a Fluffernutter to work for lunch. (This will not surprise anyone who's known me more than a few hours.) They're easy to make, don't need to be refrigerated, and (at least on my part) don't require much thought. And I like them.

Most often I'll make my lunch the night before. A couple times over the past few weeks [ profile] sdavido has started putting lunch together for me when I was running late, or otherwise pressed for time.

Tonight I got home from work around 10 pm, and I need to get up early tomorrow to be downtown at 7:30 am. Came in thinking, "OK, have to make lunch..." and reached the kitchen to find that SD- had already made me a sandwich, and it was wrapped and waiting on the counter for me.

So, yes, love is a Fluffernutter. To me, at least.

Add to the previously-mentioned gifts from [ profile] sdavido: a multicolored watch set, a bottle of perfume... and a pan of homebaked seven-layer bars from Baking Illustrated. Yummmmm. I told him I think he's discovered [ profile] vettecat catnip...

In the meantime I got some unpacking done. Not as much as I'd hoped, but I can see a difference. It's progress at least.
vettecat: (ice cream scoops)
Does anyone know a good ice cream place in walking distance of (ideally) the Orange Line, toward the northern end? Some friends from the midwest are going to be in town soon after we move, and we usually take them someplace for Good Ice Cream. (I think last time it was Christina's.) But with 2 of us, 2 of them, and their 6-year-old, fitting into my car is a bit of a challenge, so I was hoping we could find someplace either in walking distance of the Malden West End or accessible via T. Any ideas would be appreciated...
vettecat: (ice cream scoops)
Picked up a new ice cream flavor tonight. Yummmm. It's probably for the best that it's a limited edition...
vettecat: (swedish chef)
First on today's menu, we have an unusual candy to watch for in the coming months...

Then we move on to a site reminding us all that shrimp are evil.

Bon appetit!

Tonight we had dinner with [ profile] tarkrai at Taam China 2. He was coming from 495, so it was geographically convenient (and we didn't want to pass up the chance to spend time with him while he's in town). The restaurant is tucked in on a side street, and easy to pass by if you don't know where it is - [ profile] sdavido felt that they need a more prominent sign facing the street - but it has an actual parking lot, which is a nice bonus.

Once you're inside, the space is quite impressive - two floors, each of which is larger than their original location. We were seated in a booth upstairs, and while there were other people in the room, it was still quiet enough that we could have a normal conversation. Most of the menu was familiar, although they seem to have added a couple dishes which previously were only available at Shalom Hunan. The food and the service were both quite good. (Although I still did get heartburn afterwards, which never happened to me at Shalom Hunan... oh well.)

If you don't mind going beyond Brookline, and would like to try a restaurant that feels a little fancier, I would definitely recommend checking it out.
