@Timp There is enough sugar in that to fuel me through the holidays. And it does taste good, IMO. Turned out better than last years batch!

@TracerBullet It looks wonderful. Dumb question, how does it differ from fudge?

FoodPornCalgary2021 is trending….

Tonight we had 삼겹살 (pork belly), tofu soup, gochjang chicken and japchae. Only the first day here. I may need to buy new clothes at the end of this….

Tonight I decided to make a Brown Butter Bourbon Pecan Pie. I think I’m going to need an insulin shot!

Another edition of #FoodPornCalgary

Tonight’s lineup was jerk chicken, tenderloin steaks. (Purchased) meat patties, mashed potatoes and salad, anchored by 2 loaves of Lemony Snicket bread.

I was able to source some Jamaican ginger beer (real beer) to wash it down.

I feel very full now.

@Nozinan looks lovely and made me hanker after some Jamaican food. What was the ginger beer like? They do make some interesting beverages!

@Timp The gingerbeer was quite tasty, but it was not appreciably different from non-alcoholic ginger beer so I would probably go with that. My sister in law has some Fever Tree ginger beer that is pretty good. I was thinking of making a Dark and Stormy with the Lemon Hart 151 I bought.

@Nozinan Thanks. Dark an Stormy is a fine drink, mind you never had it with Lemon hart. Heard lots of you on here talk about it in glowing terms so will have to look out for it.

Christmas Eve dinner: Caesar salad, Saltspring Island mussels and a fresh baguette. A very fine New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to wash it all down.

Best of the season and a happy and healthy new year to all my connosr cohorts.

@BlueNote those the mussels that survived being cooked in the ocean this summer?

It’s a Jewish tradition that on Christmas Eve we eat Chinese food. Having Chinese in-laws brings it to a whole new level, and tonight was hot pot night. Tomorrow is Turkey.

Not to be outdone by that amazing looking cake @YakLord...

This am my wife and I watched a series on Amazon TV hosted by an American-Korean chef. It alternated between showcasing some of the great foods of Korea with instructions on making some dishes in your home. One of those dishes was Bo-Sam, steamed/boiled pork belly finished with a glaze in the oven and served with lettuce wraps, sauce and side dishes. My wife went and bought a porkbelly and the other ingredients we did not yet have, and a few hours later... this was our dinner. The only side dish we did not make ourselves was the Kimchi.

It was delicious!

(the only thing missing was Soju... but I can't stand the stuff)

It’s Purim, one of many holidays where the theme includes food.

Traditionally we back and distribute Homentashn, named after the pockets (in Yiddish) or ears (in Hebrew - osnei Haman) of the bad guy in the story.

This year, to acknowledge the Haman of the 21st century, I am calling them “PutinTashn”.

4 flavours. Traditional prune and poppyseed flavours, and popular but heretical raspberry and Nutella varieties.

Rarely do I bake but treated my covid suffering family to a Victoria Sponge cake. I had to add the whipped cream, otherwise it gets too dry for my tastes. Apparently, it was a good, light and fluffy bake. Watch out, Bake Off ... stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye

@RianC If my taste buds could talk they'd be saying "get us some of that, get us some of that."
