    Me too!!!
  3. Lisa, I just saw your comment on oiling. I oil my hands with olive oil. Does help with the stretching.

    Shelby, I can't remember the last time I had frog legs. Looks delicious. Pasta for dinner. With grilled garlic bread. Bread baked yesterday.
  5. TicTac, I do. I have the recipe on my blog. You can find it HERE. The only thing I change with this recipe is the hydration. Yesterday's pizza dough was at 76%. And I also made two loaves of bread from the same batch. Posted on the Bread Thread on Pastry and Baking Forum.
  6. The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Handmixed a batch of dough on Friday morning and it went directly into the fridge. Used some of the dough to make two pizzas Saturday night and the remaining became a couple of rounds. Baked early this morning in Dutch Ovens. Sliced tonight.
  7. I posted the pizza that we had for dinner last night to the Dinner thread. The dough was just hand pulled to stretch. With rests in between.

    Duvel, the pizza is topped with little cubes of potatoes. I fried them last night, but the potatoes can also be roasted in the oven. When they come of out the fryer, I season them with fresh garlic, salt, pepper, oregano and the juice of a lemon. Tomato sauce, topped with either fresh mozzarella or feta and more oregano. This is my son's favourite pizza.

    I haven't made pizza in a while. Made a batch of dough yesterday and left it in the fridge until tonight. Made my son's favourite - Greek Potato pizza and Moe and I shared a Mushroom and Italian sausage pizza.

    Anna, great looking toast.
  11. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Roasted a little Sterling Silver top sirloin this morning. Presalted and roasted at 500°F. Made Moe a beef dip sandwich for breakfast. I work today so I will take the same thing for lunch.
  12. Tried a couple of more meals in the PC. Today's breakfast. I had a small Pork Sirloin roast that I had presalted yesterday morning. Was going to roast it this morning but then decided to try and "roast" it in the PC. Seasoned the roast with fresh garlic, lots of black pepper and dried herbs, sage and rosemary. Browned the roast in cast iron pan. Removed from the pan and then sauted an onion cut into quarters. Deglazed the pan with chicken broth and added the contents to the PC. Put the rack into the pot. Put the roast in the little steamer basket and set it on the rack. The programme for meat without bone was 40 minutes. I knew that 40 minutes would be way to long for the size of the roast so I reset it for 32 minutes. The setting was for natural release. Meat turned out perfect. Tender but still held together so it could be slice. It was closer to the flavour of roast pork than I expected it to be. Used the strained cooking broth to make a gravy. Started with a roux. Gravy was seasoned with a little more sage and rosemary and Dijon mustard. Yesterday's breakfast. I promised Moe my chicken pot pie and decided to make it for breakfast. Shortcut - cooked the chicken breasts and the vegetables in the Breville PC to save time and an extra step or two. Made a roux using some of the chicken broth, heavy cream and seasoned the sauce with more fresh thyme. Baked it in my cast iron skillet. Topped with a commercial butter puff pastry. The setting on the PC for chicken is 20 minutes at a reduced pressure. But I was sure that would be too much so I adjusted the time to 15 minutes. Next time I will adjust a little more. I think that 10 to 12 minutes would have been long enough. I would have liked the vegetables to be slightly underdone. They would cook more in the pie while it bakes. Other than that, I was really happy with the way it turned out.
