To all you babies talking about confit garlic killing you, you will be fine. I'll pick up a gallon of peeled garlic at a time, dump it into plain ol' canola oil, cover it in foil, and throw it into an oven at 300 until most of the garlic starts to float. You want about twice as much oil as garlic by volume. Once at least a quarter start to float, pull it out of the oven and they will finish cooking as they sit.

As long as the garlic is submerged in the oil, they won't go bad. I wouldn't waste using good oil on it, the oil you use becomes awesome garlic oil, and as mentioned earlier, you lose the nuances of good oil, and it's just really not cost effective.

You shouldn't worry about it going bad because it needs to used in just about every dish you make since it is just that good.

I stopped drinking on weekdays, because it was starting to get expensive. I realised yesterday that I haven't bought a bottle of liquor in a couple of months. This means that with all this extra money lying around I was able to go nuts and splurge on some frozen berries and such for smoothies this morning. You barely need any at all to give the smoothie lots of the taste, and the bananas are relatively cheap anyway. The taste difference between the frozen berries and the godsawful out of season ones is huge. The excitement I got from buying them, and the enjoyment I'm getting from drinking the smoothie this morning was well worth the creeping sobriety.

Yes. I have officially become An Old Person. I felt so indulgent and naughty for spending around $20 on frozen berries. But /man/ did it feel good.

I've tried this oats-in-smoothies thing, and maybe it's my blender or something, but it never gets smooth enough. If you have lumps in your smoothie, it shoulds be fruit and not grains, so I tend to leave them out.

I put in a few strawberries, some blueberries, a knob (heh) of ginger, a handful of oats, a banana, and some orange juice, then gave it a whiz. Then, I added some ice, and crunched that lot down too. It came out like a sorbet, it was so pretty. And it was hella filling, even though it didn't weigh me down.

I'm thankful for you guys for assuaging my guilt with buying frozen food. It's nice to have a treat like that which makes me feel good, and is good for me. And OK, it was a little pricey, but for like 5 days worth of smoothies that comfortably fill up two GIANT mugs for me AND Puppy, I'd say that's worth the money. And my local store carries it, so if I run out, I can just pop over and get more.

I'm excited for Summer so that I can buy other fruit, and freeze it on my own. Although the strawberries were extremely delicious, $3/lb seems like a lot of money for me. It's an affordable luxury, but I'd like to maybe see if I can get it cheaper.

Oooh lordy that place owns. Got a bunch of food to try and leave the rest for roommate and fiancee, including:
Mushroom bun (awesome)
Pork and chinese cabbage bun (ok)
Fried leek dumplings (Very tasty, filling a new one to me. Basically an empanada filled with chopped chinese leeks)
Pork noodles (goddamn, five spice broth, fresh noodles, some cilantro, mushrooms and roasted pork belly)
The pork and preserved egg congee (good, way better than the congee I had in Vegas which cost five times as much and didn't have anything in it. Not decided on the preserved egg, first time trying it)
Tea egg (holy loving poo poo where have these been all of my life I feel like doing a chinese food version of cool hand luke oh my god. They're 50c a piece.)
Pork steamed buns (Pork har gao. Tasty, the sauce was really good too. Don't know my chinese sauce flavors well enough to even begin deconstructing it.)

I also bought a few things specifically for my other householders, including another tea egg which I am contemplating stealing, a crispy sugar cake and a char siu bun.

Food as far as the eye can see, and with a generous tip it was just over $30.

Eh, they were called "buns" on the English portion of the menu, but they were clearly har gao. I can't read pinyin so I'm not sure what they have down as the actual name. The menu is a little disorganized. The char siu bao I got for the roommate is pretty good too. I feel like I could grab a couple of buns for $1.50 each and be very happy for lunch.

Eggs will last longer in the fridge, but they're pretty much designed to be left out for weeks at a time without spoiling. Otherwise they wouldn't really work as eggs from the chicken's point of view.

And if you don't wash off the cuticle those things will last for loving ever.

Shouldn't have rinsed them, but if you eat them soon they're fine. In the fridge they'd last a month or more easily.

The menu posted calls them 猪肉小笼包, so steamed dumplings not buns. I don't know Cantonese, so I have no idea whether they qualify as har gao (漢子?) or not.

Did these come peeled already? Were they sliced? Was it an egg by itself or served as a side to accompany something? Were there pictures? If there weren't you should go back and take pictures.

I want a place like that here, in my most fantastical daydreams it's what we turn Chin's Cafe into.

I always leave them on the counter. I have very very rarely had an egg go off. If you are concerned give it a shake. If you hear a sloshing sound, it's gone off.

Yeah you can keep fresh eggs out for awhile. My parents never refrigerated them back in China. They do now though, something about them not trusting the eggs from the supermarket.

I just made my first mustard, and I think I did it wrong. Ground organic yellow mustard, salt, whole wheat flour, belgan blonde wheat ale to incorporate. It tastes a little floury, so I popped in some smoked paprika to balance it out. Dijon it's not, but it's mustard. Tips?

I'd skip the flour altogether and use mustard powder instead. It may be "cheating", but it won't taste floury. I'd also suggest an acid of some kind. Sherry vinegar perhaps.
