I haven't yet looked but I gather this is a MUCH needed guide. Carving
was always the man's job at my family's holiday meals. For some reason
it seems as if some young lately (mine included?) missed that lesson in
food school that day? I am passing this along to a few folks I know.

What? You mean men HAVE a job at holiday meals besides falling out on the
couch afterward and grunting in an icky way if you ask them to take out the
trash?

I've been ROBBED!

Of course we do - we have to do the cooking so it will be good - y'all
can busy yourselves with decorating the table... Out of my kitchen!

I do ALL the cooking, except dessert, which is my wife's province. I
will, however, be the one to procure the pumpkin from "that thing."
"That thing" is a pumpkin. My wife knows how to get the "pumpkin"*
out of the can, but not out of the squash itself. I bought her ground
clove, ginger and Ceylon cinnamon yesterday at Penzey's.
This brings me to the "CRAP!" part. Penzey's quit making powdered bay
leaf!
Other than pepper, powdered bay leaf is the seasoning I use most
frequently. Whole bay leaves take forever, compared to powdered.
Now, it's either use inferior powdered, or take an extra hour to
infuse the leaves. Grrrr.

So, are you married?


One reason that I'm happily married is that I do 99% of the cooking.

* canned pumpkin is really "Dickinson squash," *Cucurbita moschata*,
not pumpkin, *Cucurbita pepo*.

Couldn't you break up some bay leaves and grind them to a powder in a coffee grinder or similar?

Maybe. I guess I'll go ahead and buy another electric milling thingie
dedicated to other-than-coffee stuff. Maybe it'll work.

I always see them in the no-name piles of appliances at hardware
stores and homecenters. Always well under 10 bucks. A great addition
to your kitchen arsenal.

Thanks for posting this Christine. I'm sure it's going to improve my
carving skills. I also watched the Mark Bittman pan fried pizza
video. Looks weird but I might just try it.
