You could use your skillet you refurbished.

Jacques Pépin, I think he would like the Cheap Eaten thread.

I do too. I love his line, with his heavy French accent, "I moved to New York 30(?) years ago to improve my English. As you can see I'm still working on it."

If you watched Julia's cooking show then you've seen Jacque cooking with her. He does all kinds of cheap dishes too. I think his shows still play on the Create PBS channel but I don't get them on DTV.

I must have been a kid the last time I saw her show except what I could find on YouTube.
Where I grew up we only had one channel and that antenna better be pointed right for it.
We didn't even have a telephone at the last place.
The only time I got to see some of this stuff was when I went to go see my older brother in Texas.
They had cable, probably 5 channels.
My niece and good friend the same age as I Brenda and myself used to watch the cooking shows.
They even had side walks and paved streets to ride my bicycle on as opposed to the gravel roads I lived on.
I have yet to master her fried potato puffed things what ever they are called.

Oui, Jacques has a current show on PBS. He often cooks with his daughter or granddaughter.

Yesterday he made dishes inspired by his friend Rick Bayless ('Mexico One Plate at a Time'). Used ground achiote in his rice to make it red and made chicken thighs with lots of peppers and even pears in it. Cooked with Bayless briefly at his place in Mexico, so expect more of same.

I love Rick Bayless's and Patti Jinich's mexican recipes.

Lasagna turned out too wet, but good. I found a way to make it cheaper next time - leave out the ricotta. I think next time, I'll make it out of pepperoni instead of sausage. Basically make it a Deep Dish pepperoni pizza with lasagna noodles instead of pizza dough.

The recipe on the lasagna noodles box was for Chili Lasagna...

Oh yes! Julia Child would have loved it also, I bet. Both chefs I admire greatly, along with Gordon Ramsay and Justin Wilson.

I didn't eat one good meal the whole time I was in France, not one time.
I almost starved to death they fed us peasant food.

I took leave from Spain and spent 2 weeks in Paris, it cost me 2K but I had a blast and lucked into a Pink Floyd concert at Versailles Palace. The portions are small there and it costs to eat. I did find a Burger King and Pizza Hut and had to eat at each once because I didn't have it in at least 6 months. By the time I left I was hooked on cheap French wine, fresh french bread and cheese as a snack or hold over meal while playing tourist and visiting every site I could. They had some great cheap cheese and wine.

A man can tour Europe on good bread, sweet butter, and some cheese. And he has.


P.S. Girls too.
