    Dinner 2019

    I really love my Breville PC. I was late getting home from work tonight. Didn't get dinner started until almost six pm. But we were eating by 7:10. Lamb shanks cooked in the Breville PC. Mashed potatoes, steamed green beans and radishes. ETA: And dessert is served.

    Rhubarb Pie destined for tonight's dessert. But depending on how I feel after work, it might just become dinner. All butter pastry made before I went to bed last night. Pulled the rhubarb this morning and got the pie into the oven early.

    Tonight's dinner. Thai Red Chicken Curry. And a very nice Okanagan Pinot Grigio from Rust Wine Co.
  4. Just noticed that the Oster French Door oven is on sale at $109.99 at Costco Canada. That is the best price I have seen on it. If I had the space I would buy a second one.

    Well, maybe. I know you probably wouldn't be disappointed. And they are usually on at a very good price. Costco here has the manual one on for the low price of $109.99. That is the lowest I have seen. I think I paid $169 for the digital model. I used the CSO and the Oster exclusively. So far I haven't found anything that I can't bake or roast in at least one of them. The Oster will even hold a 6 qt dutch oven , a 15 1/5" X 13" baking sheet and I have a stone that is 15" by 13 for breads. If I had room I would be tempted to buy another one, but since I still have a second CSO in a box, probably won't.

    Today's bake. Fed my starter this morning and decided I wanted to bake today. rather than make a biga and wait for it to double, I just added 80g of the discard into a batch of dough along with 3g of yeast. Starter doubled in less than seven hours and it is back in the fridge. I've been trying to remember to feed it once a week. Baked four batards and four small bun size rounds. Started each loaf off in the CSO using the bread steam setting. After 10 to 12 minutes moved the loaf to the Oster to finish baking. This method allows me to bake a number of loaves with the benefit of the steam, in a short period of time.

    @Okanagancook, We got married in 1979. Will be married 40 years come August 25th. But we were together 6 years before we married.

    @JoNorvelleWalker, we worked that out 46 years ago. He is just happy to have a salad whenever I want to make him one. Tonight's dinner. I asked Moe earlier today what he would like for dinner and the answer was Chicken Piccata. So that is what we had. With a side of pasta Aglio E Olio. I always make it with green peppercorns because I don't like capers.

    I wasn't hungry last night so it was a good time to make Moe something he likes more than me. A salad. Grilled Prawns with avocado.

    Wow @Smithy, your starter was doing amazing. My only though is that you should have continued to feed it with whatever rye you were using. Your starter obviously loved it. In the past I have spun off a white starter using the Roger's Silver Star bread flour but I always kept the Rye starter going. I wouldn't suggest feeding with just an all purpose flour. This time around I decided to only feed one starter and only with the rye. The rye starter gets added to white flour and doesn't really add much in the way of a rye taste, just the sourdough taste. And if you are making sourdough, it is this flavour that you are going for. I would measure out 6 ounces of your starter and feed it again with three ounces of rye and three ounces of bottled water. It will probably bounce back. Then continue to feed it with rye.

    Duck Breast with a Port Cherry Sauce. I had intended to make a Port fig sauce which is a favourite with duck. But I couldn't find the dried figs that I like so I went with cherries. Served on a bed of braised red cabbage, asparagus and potato gratin.

    Breakfast 2019

    Okay, after seeing the applecakes that @liamsaunt posted on the dinner thread yesterday, I caved and downloaded A Feast of Ice and Fire . I couldn't find the recipe anywhere on line. These little cakes are so good. Really moist. I had started before i realized that I was out of walnuts. Decided that I didn't really care. I've made other Streusel toppings without nuts. Butter and brown sugar works for me. The recipe made six mini loaf cakes and six regular size muffins. Moe had one with a second cappuccino.

    Thanks @Okanagancook and @Smithy. I had enough dough leftover from this morning's bread bake to bake a small rye roll. Moe and I shared a Montreal smoked meat sandwich.

    @kayb I bought this one recently. It is made by Gobel. I found for half price . I would not have paid what it is listed for on that website Used it this morning to make cocktail rye. Rye dough made yesterday and baked today. One Pullman cocktail loaf and one regular rye loaf.
