What is the best meal you've ever eaten?

18 March 2016 - 10:45 PM

This is pretty self explanatory based on the title of the thread.  What's the best meal you've ever eaten?


I'll start first:


The best meal that I've ever eaten was lamb bhuna at what was the apparently the finest indian restaurant in London.  They had some damn good food and will never forget that meal. 

My problem children

12 March 2016 - 12:36 PM

Over the last couple of weeks these two plants have gone from healthy, lush and green to having all of the new growth become white and bumpy.  At first I thought that I may have had them bake in the sun on my front porch when I watered them last week but I don't think that is an issue now.  I only water them just before they begin to wilt.  I have given them a small dose of fish emulsion.  I thought the problem may have been bacterial but there should be plenty of air circulation even in this box that I keep them in because it is near a heater vent.  I channel some of the moving air into the box.


I search extensively though other forum threads trying to find images of plants that have the same exact issues but I failed to find an image similar enough to what my plants look like.


I'm stumped and I think I need a fresh perspective.

Pickle Cakes ; P

20 February 2016 - 08:11 PM

Well...I had a major hankering for some pickles, but I wanted some delicious cake too.  Why not have the best of both worlds? 




1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 small pinch of salt

1 egg yolk

1 1/2 tsp of wildflower honey

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp vegetable oil

3 vlasic sweet heat pickle slices (diced)

1/6 cup pickle juice

some half and half (or milk) to add more moisture when wet and dry ingredients are blended


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Combine the flour and baking powder together. Then add the salt.  In a separate bowl combine the egg yolk, oil, vanilla, pickles, pickle juice, and honey together. Add the dry ingredients bit by bit and stir to incorporate everything.  The consistency will get extremely pasty so splash the half and half intermittently until you get a thick batter-like consistency while stirring.  Grease two ramekins with some butter. split the batter evenly into the ramekins.  Cook for about 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean after being inserted into the middle of the cake.

.....more to come.  I still need to make the pickle cream cheese frosting.  :drooling:
