Some "Sheltering in Place" is Great by taffy

Some "Sheltering in Place" is Great

Our governor and the mayor, in a joint news conference today, asked all to remain home for the foreseeable future. At least tonight, we had everything we needed for a great dinner at home, including a FaceTime with family in Baltimore and Portland. Jim made the ratatouille and I did the shrimp salad. Good combination!
Site where Jim found the recipe he used here (but he said he modified a little from having made this using other recipes in the past): https://tasty.co/recipe/ratatouille
Yummy!!! Especially the ratatouille! We are picking up Nik tomorrow, most of her friends have headed to their parents homes so she decided to come home too. Have to admit I will enjoy having her home.

I hate shrimp but the ratatouille looks fabulous. Too bad you probably won’t be coming for graduation so I can’t beg him to make it for us, but maybe he’d send me the recipe?

Both look beautiful
March 21st, 2020  
@jgpittenger I'll ask him to send it along. It's different than the way he usually makes it and it really tasted great.

Photo-worthy dinner! You saw the level of cooking I've been doing -- definitely not photo worthy! And then I have to eat it 8 times.
March 21st, 2020  
@jyokota I'd go for you mac and cheese any day!! If I were allowed to go anywhere!
March 21st, 2020  
Looks delicious!
March 21st, 2020  
Wow--looks delicious, and beautifully photographed. Good luck sheltering at home.
March 21st, 2020  
Looks like a gourmet dinner! Yum!

What a delicious looking meal

Both look good especially the shrimp salad .. FG doesn't do shrimp so it is a real treat for me..
March 21st, 2020  
Yum!!!
March 21st, 2020  
Tasty photo!
March 21st, 2020  
i love both and they look so delicious!
March 21st, 2020  
A couple of great cooks in your household!
March 21st, 2020  
Yum!
March 21st, 2020  
Oh, both look lovely. We are on a vegan diet now as my son is home and I refuse to cook two sets of food! Very time consuming, but then, fortunately, I have more time now because everything I do has been cancelled! Oh, dear, we live in interesting times.
March 21st, 2020  
@jamibann You made me smile there. Saw a cartoon yesterday of a shark coming up to a lady water skier and saying "I am on a vegan diet. Are you a vegan?"
March 21st, 2020  
The ratatouille looks DELICIOUS. Yum yum
March 21st, 2020  
What a wonderful healthy meal.
March 21st, 2020  
Two large portions of each to go please...
March 21st, 2020  
Beautiful culinary delights -- yummy ! Well worth to make the effort with the presentation too
March 21st, 2020  
who needs restaurants to be open if only we could go to taffy's house? glad you had a fab cook-up. we are busy trying to set up life via zoom (i've managed yoga and bridge so far, and a coffee date!) expecting the uk to be in total lockdown fairly soon
March 21st, 2020  
Looks delicious! A good chance to practice our cooking skills maybe 😁
March 21st, 2020  
Oh my. This looks amazingly good. The internet is certainly helping us during these times. FaceTime is wonderful!
March 21st, 2020  
Gourmand!
March 21st, 2020  
Mmmm it looks delicious. Well worth staying home for.
March 21st, 2020  
@taffy @jgpittenger -- oh just ask Jim to post it here so we can all see it. Although I'd rather he just make it for me :)
Maybe we can use 365 to share recipes-for-the-homebound
March 21st, 2020  
Looks delicious, even though I don´t like seafood. Stay safe
March 21st, 2020  
yum
March 21st, 2020  
Looks delicious.
March 21st, 2020  
Wow...What delicious images...
March 21st, 2020  
Looks delicious, Taffy.
March 21st, 2020  
@vignouse I just read your comment to Jim -- you brought a lovely smile to his face so thanks! He's really the chef in our home.
March 21st, 2020  
@jgpittenger Really, it was just a regular salad with shrimp added, but I thought it made it look a lot prettier (and to me, taste better). Recipe coming...
March 21st, 2020  
@jyokota @jgpittenger -- just added the recipe link above in the narrative section.
March 21st, 2020  
@taffy A smile from one chef to another then as I do all our cooking... Mrs S helps with the eating though! 👨‍🍳
March 21st, 2020  
Thanks for sharing
March 21st, 2020  
Looks very tasty 😋
March 21st, 2020  
Looks delicious!
March 21st, 2020  
Who needs to go out when this is dinner at home? It looks yummy! Your narrative mentioned staying at home "for the foreseeable future". That's so very open ended ( as is the whole situation) but it is a worry - do they have plans in place for people to renew their food, medicine etc supplies?
March 21st, 2020  
That looks Cordon Bleu!
March 21st, 2020  
Looks delicious!
March 21st, 2020  
Sounds yummy- we had homemade beef vegetable soup and homemade pizza. Just as yummy!
March 21st, 2020  
Oh yum. Just printed the recipe. How did he tweak it?
March 22nd, 2020  
@jgpittenger 2 cans of fire roasted tomatoes instead of one. Lots of garlic. Tweaked seasonings to taste. All low salt.
March 22nd, 2020  
Looks absolutely delicious.
March 22nd, 2020  
Fantastic food photography! Funny because I too have been cooking and baking up a storm this week to keep from going stir crazy and to satisfy myself by eating good food.
March 23rd, 2020  
What a great dinner
March 23rd, 2020  
Well done. It looks like a beautiful dinner. Hope it is a tasty as it looks!
March 23rd, 2020  
Wow that meal looks yummy!
March 23rd, 2020  
Just YUMMM!
March 24th, 2020  
Looks delicious
March 24th, 2020  
Gosh—- you made me really hungry 😋😋😋
March 24th, 2020  
A belated check-in... admiring your tasty meal prep.
March 25th, 2020  
Oh yes this looks so delicious! Here in the holiday (that’s not a holiday) cottage we only have the things I brought with us so no fancy cooking for a while! Great food photo!
March 26th, 2020
