Taste changes Some people can eat the same food everyday. My wife for instance, can eat a grilled chicken salad everyday. There is a running joke about that in our household... Jesse has his go to dishes like curry, pasta, etc. Me, well I like to try new things explore new flavors and ways of cooking. That being said I hate cleaning up afterwards which normally come right after exploring new ways of cooking. So thinking about that, what did I eat on a regular basis 20 years ago, and Is it the same? Does our food taste change
Life on a plate Growing up in chinatown nyc in the early 70’s I remember a lot thing I never thought about till now. Like never having an ac only a window fan, going out and playing in the streets or park without supervision or having a real curfew.

Since my fresh staples are running low frozen veggies and real smashed garlic potatoes with a onion gravy. It’s get harder to be creative with supply’s getting lower in nyc. I have not left the house since March 9. So I have no idea how crazy it is out there.

Supermarket steak ala Poivre and hand cut fries cooked in cold oil. Local supermarkets are not known for great cuts of of meats they are are always cut thin not best way for a proper steak.

Cleaning my pantry shelf off day. Iets see if I can get 100 followers in my new instagram feed imicroworld Did anyone notice my little trick to keep chops flat?
