  1. That's beauty Brian. I always wanted one for my fly tying but I never did get one so mark me envious. I'm not sure I want to know but I'm gonna ask. What's the TP for? 😄
  2. I finally had a window of decent weather to take my daughter, her pup as well as my pup. This was my boys first time in the boat and he enjoyed it thoroughly. The target, big Channel Cats. Sadly the big girls didn't come out to play. We weren't fishing 5 minutes when we were into a double header, my daughter's was a Cat and mine a was Bowfin. The next 30 minutes was constant action but few fish over the gunnels. The end result for a few hours of fishing was, 1 Cat, 2 Bowfin, 1 Pumpkinseed and a scruffy Northern.
  3. So this happened today. The recipe has been in my book marked folder for sometime and I decided to give it a go. It turned out pretty gosh darn good. However next time I would pre toast the flour or perhaps bake the empty potato pastry shell without filling. I also did a small loaf of bread as well since the oven was hot. I served it with a local grocery store rotisserie chicken and steamed Broccoli. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4leNJoIi-Q
  4. Last evening, Artisan Barese Sausage (a gift) done on the BBQ that will be plated soon on my home made sausage buns along with my home made Macaroni and Tuna salad. No plated pictures, sausage was stellar, the sausage buns could use some improvement. Over all not a bad first effort.
  5. It's been two and half years since I was at a concert and it was back to back nights of Tool in TO. I need this in my life again! FYI.....dinner was stellar.
  6. Happy May 1st. A little musical interlude while my dinner is cooking. 😎
  7. Thank you. There's a few items I'll need to get on my next grocery run.
  8. Sure, post away. I'd be happy to give 'em a try.
  9. Thanks Doug. I have tried "no'nead" bread back in the early Covid days but I've not done so in some time now.
  10. So I used my new Cuisnart mixer today to make my first ever loaf of leavened bread. I may never buy commercial bread again........ Still warm and smothered in Butter..... oh my Lord, so good!
  11. Yesterday I decided to upgrade my dough and crust making capabilities. Heck I might even venture to get the pasta making attachment for it in time. I bought both of my daughter's the same machine last fall when they were on sale and they love 'em, so seeing them on sale again (CTC) I decided to get one of my own.
  12. Time to bring back live music, my daughter's and I are ready to go!
  13. What to do with leftovers. Well when it's left over pizza dough and grated cheese from Tuesday and hot Italian sausage from yesterday along with a few Spanish onions needing to be used up...... You make sausage, onion and cheese stuffed Calzones. My craftsmanship needs work but I assure you, delicious!
  14. Very nice Pal, may it serve you well for many years. 👍😎
  15. Home made everything is best Brian, even fishing rods.
  16. Homemade Pizza. Nothing overly unusual, but this time was my first outing making the dough from scratch and by hand, I have no mixer. Turned out pretty gosh darn good with the one exception being the low priced Bacon I had on hand was rather salty.
  17. No issues here Dan. I'm running Firefox as my browser.
  18. Colour me envious to the nth degree.
  19. It all sounds so amazing Cliff, I'm happy for you. Any chance we can see a few pictures of your success'?
