GOt my self a couple of cases of this one from Whole Foods. They somehow had the green/yellow ones which are really sour and quite juicy. I've been having about 8-10 of these daily  :-[
Yum yum!  Our local market's been selling cases of ripe Clementines for $5 since mid-November.  About time to head for the store for another one!  Meanwhile, we just have to make do with a breakfast of honey-baked ham and pecan pie.

Cases?  :o
They come in cases like that one in the picture. Between the two of us, we can consume one case in a few days. It is really hard to find this good clementines/tangerines/mandarines in NY. You guys are the only place with the good stuff  8)

We have a case in our fridge as well.  Problem is tht a case only last a few days at our house.

If it weren't for clementines and/or tangerines I would have died of scurvy by now! ;D

Seconded. I would also like to shake off this feeling of sloth that has set in since the end of November (hence my increased posting since then).

Today, I shucked 15 oysters, the first time I ever did that. I actually had to look up online how that works. I messed up the first 2 or 3 a bit, but the rest worked out pretty well even though I don't have an actual oyster knife. I didn't even stab myself! Then I put a little bit of horse radish, some hot cocktail sauce and some lemon juice on the oysters and made them all vanish, mercilessly, one by one. I had planned to put some spring onions on them as well. But I forgot these when I went shopping.

Thanks. It was a cooperative effort. I was responsible for the potatoes and the duck and for whipping the crème fraîche for the soup. My wife took care of the soup and she and her friend did the pie.

The wine (the bottom of the decanter is visible in the third picture) was a 2001 Pommard.

Roasted leek slices and capers. There is a sort of wasabi chutney/salsa in between and the brown juice around it is Ponzu sauce. The duck is basically just trimmed and seared. The recipe is from the Nobu West cookbook.

I like those bowls the soup is served in.  What kind are they?  Where did you get them?

Nice looking food.

I don't. They look too much like hospital accessories.
