Pressure Cooker is THE MARKET for making stock.
I got over a quart of high quality gelatinous pig stock off one shank bone in under three hours. No more all day simmering for half ass 'it's kinda stocky' stock for me. Do the whole business from prep to clean up in an afternoon from now on.

Pressure cooker is great for stock. Also stews, fake barbecue, and caramelized onions. And curries.

Cream cheese mix with dill, garlic, and green onion makes a real good sandwich with salami.

I do cream cheese, dill, chives, and salmon, on crackers or toast.

Dill is really good to make canned salmon pop.

Canned salmon is one of the few things I miss about childhood. My wife won't allow it in the house - the smell makes her gag.

Who knew funnel cake was so hard? Too thick and it won't flow through the funnel. Too thin and you get little bean-sized pellets of fried dough - which, while an acceptable carrier for powdered sugar, are NOT funnel cake.

I wonder if a piping bag would be better?

Would definitely try piping bag. Works great for profiteroles if that's your jam. Plastic bag and a frosting tip and you're good to go.

If I'm at the fair, I'll do the funnel cake. If I'm in NOLA I'll do the beignet. I'll do the donut of the venue I happen to be at is what I'm saying.
But I will seek out the apple orchard that makes doughnuts just for the experience of a freshly fried cake doughnut and cup of hot cider.

There's the sneer but there's also weaning yourself off it and accepting a whole wheat lifestyle

In general I go with a white-ish bread for BLTs, but not wonder. And for French toast.

Otherwise, even my unrefined palate can't stand it anymore outside of emergencies. One where we were about out of food on Christmas and the only place in Yokelboro that was open was a CVS, and all they had was Wonder or Rainbo or one of those. It is in this respect that I am glad I live in a real place where at least grocery stores recognize that people need to eat even on Christmas. But I think they were selling beer.

Oh right right. Yeah. Bread in general is a sometimes food for me, so I just do whatever on those occasions. Telera rolls for juicy burgers, potato buns for smashed burgers, baguette for beef stew, etc.

I am "allowed" to have whole wheat since I do endurance cardio. That is to say I am "allowed" to have carbs. Nay encouraged.

I generally am reduced carb guy, but failing recently. Rice and noodly things way harder to give up than bread and taters.
