I had never made carnitas. I found a recipe in an IP cookbook, and made them last night. Really good. Will do this again.

Nothing earth-shattering, but I just had a very good sage derbyshire slightly melted on rye. I had never had the sage variety before--delicious.

Yesterday I finally tried Walkers Prawn Cocktail Crisps. Holy cow!! They are wonderful! They might just take the number one spot from beef & onion flavor for me.
I tried Walkers Crisps for the first time in November. I bought a meaty variety pack. They quickly became a favorite in our house. My favorite being beef and onion and everyone else has roast chicken as their favorite. When I ordered this time I made sure we could try prawn cocktail flavor. I am sure glad I did!!

I've been buying these from amazon too. This must be your fault.

I liked the Prawn Cocktail, but so far I think Pickled Onion has been my fave crisp flavor. The smoky bacon is pretty incredible too.

I haven't tried the pickled onion yet. I will make sure it is in the next pack I buy.
The smoky bacon is pretty good. Actually I haven't ran across a flavour I don't like yet!

Due to travel and having the flu, I haven't made anything new this year yet.

However, I want to repeat something I made for the first time last year: Sichuan Mapo Dofu. Thanks to a good recipe and authentic ingredients, it was good and compared well with what I've have in restaurants in the US and in China. That really surprised me. I've had not-so-good (and good) versions in the US and UK. Good and/or OK versions in China (including Taiwan and Macao as well as the mainland). Perhaps its a matter of taste. The worst I had was in London's Chinatown, where it was bland and came with English peas. Admittedly, the waiter there tried to talk me out of ordering it.

Bought a whole smoked tri tip for around $25 and brought it home, sliced, and ate. I had never tried a tri tip before - we usually have ribeye or NY steak, sometimes filet or sirloin depending on cash-flow, but until recently I'd never tried tri tip.

Bought two whole tri tips, one I dry rubbed and the other is marinating in a homemade teriyaki-type soak. Will be going in the smoker tomorrow.

I will have to do some research on tri-tip. I live in Houston and never heard of it until it started being popular in LA, to which I travel frequently. Mostly in BBQ restaurants there. So ... I'm wondering if its a cut not usually used in Texas for BBQ or just a name for a cut similar to (or the same as) what we get here.

We stopped at an import store last night to get some tea and walked out with a box of Grace's Irish Oatmeal Biscuits. Oh, my... These are delicious! More like shortbread than an oatmeal cookie, but they are absolutely wonderful with tea.
