Those look like yellow “cherry” tomatoes. Pretty common in the States.

Makes sense. Not that common over here, that’s why I didn’t think of them.

We’d call them “heritage” over here in the UK, because that sounds expensive.

Yup, yellow cherry tomatoes.

An average dinner (not sure how porn esque though lol)
Takes about 30 min to cook and another 30 min to prep; cooking for 5 takes a while

My mom is from Zhenjiang too! Taxiing
Dad’s from Hunan :joy:
They met in Zhenjiang uni

Similar story here I believe

Also there are other ways to prep food? Lol

red braising, steaming, soup… but yeah, most chinese homestyle cooking is quite one note and very oily, which is why I really don’t enjoy it

At least proper zhejiang cooking has more flavours than Hunan cooking. Can’t get behind sweet meats though.

Nothing like a good ole Frito pie to celebrate a cold front. This may have fit better in the heart attack food thread

Made a red pepper sauce out of jarred roasted red peppers, fresh garlic cloves, a diced plum tomato, red wine vinegar, spices (paprika and crushed red pepper, salt and pepper), and blended it all together with heavy cream.
Then seated a few salmon fillets in an iron skillet quickly, poured the sauce all over them and put the skillet in the oven for 8ish minutes. The salmon soaked up the sauce like you wouldn’t believe.


Just had some mixed veggies on the side - I think next time some sautéed zucchini and summer squash would be best.

Did you buy half a cow?

Yep, just under 300lbs of local beef.

I’ve considered getting a chest freezer for exactly this purpose.

It would probably pay for itself in 2 meat orders.

I’m not sure how many orders it’s take to shake out, but this came to about $4.60/lb which is pretty solid given the prices at my grocery stores. Mostly in regards to the cuts, but there’s a good pile of those in there.
