    I will try the mustard vinegarette. I love Melissa and her recipes.

    I will look up the test kitchen corn salad, inthegarden. They really know their stuff.

    Personally I would love the greens, they would fit in with the spring theme. But my guests wouldn't eat them (DH's family)

    Strawberries and any kind of cream cheese are a natural.
    We always use peanut oil. To me it is a lighter oil and shortening to me is heavy. Peanut oil has a higher burn point to.

    What are the attributes of Yukon Gold potatoes? People seem to love them.

    They have a nice texture, and they taste buttery even *without* butter.

    They seem to be less dry than other potatoes. They hold up well in roasting, baking, frying and I have yet to have a more delicious whipped potato.

    For leftover turkey I usually do a tetrazzini and a pot pie (for the pot pie I use a frozen butter puff pastry as the top).

    For South Asian food lovers I have been making my own garam masala for a few months now and it makes all the difference. I bought a used cookbook off amazon that someone had recommended and I am loving it. Charmaine Solomon's complete asian cookbook. It is an older book but you can get if for under 40$ I think and it covers 500+ pages.

    Yes, Alton suggested peanut oil as a alternative to solid shortening.

    One of the veggie sides I did last night was this roasted cauliflower with red pepper coulis. (coulis: french term for a thick sauce) lol

    Annie also has a recipe for sesame soba noodles that I'm going to try. I've never had soba noodles, I hope we like them.

    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    Are you all following this story on the "pink slime" that is added, unlabeled, to the ground beef in the stores? It has been on the evening ABC news this week. Apparently, a lot of stores carry the ground beef with this additive. I do know that it is USDA(?) approved, for years. The news people suggest that you talk to your meat people and ask if the "pink slime" has been added. They've asked a number of stores about "pink slime" in their ground beef, and some responded and some haven't. Whole Foods does not add the "pink slime"; that was the only store that responded with which I am familiar; my usual store was not listed. You can also be assured of no "pink slime" if your beef is labeled "Organic". Apparently, "pink slime" is made from trimmings from beef (fats and very little meat) that used to be put in pet foods....and now it's for us! It's considered a "filler"; it's has a gelatinous appearance. Can't help but wonder if the woman who approved this additive, however many years ago, feeds this beef to her family.

    Oh yeah...I am VERY seriously considering buying a meat grinder for my KitchenAid mixer and grinding my own beef from now on.

    Reminds me of an old joke: Did you hear what happened to the butcher when he backed into the meat grinder? He got a little behind in his work. (bah-dum-dum)

    Oooooooh!
    Have you seen the pink slime that is the blendered chicken product McDonald's uses for their chicken nuggets? It looks like chewed bubble gum.
