    The freezer is still giving gifts – mini quiche Lorraine from Christmas:

    @Kim Shook, those look good.  I would happily eat those for breakfast.


    Bought a double smoked ham and roasted it yesterday.

  2. At 5:00 AM this morning, I decided to make Apple Turnovers. Moe wanted something sweet.
    Made a "quick" version of puff pastry and got into the fridge. Then started on the apples, cut up and simmered in butter, sugar (white and brown), a little fresh squeezed lemon juice, pinch of salt, and cinnamon. Cooked until caramelized and then into the freezer for a quick cool.
    Rolled out half of the puff pastry, cut into four 6" squares, filled with an 1/8th of the apples. brushed turnovers with milk and sprinkled with a little sugar and baked.
    Drizzled with a brown butter glaze.
    By 7:30 Moe was enjoying with a second cappuccino.
    Made four more with the other half of dough and froze them for another day.

  5. Thank you@blue_dolphin.  A keeper.


    I made your scones today. Made them the same way minus the bacon.




    I was going to make Moe a back bacon and egg sandwich but he decided he just wanted the bacon.


    I made seven and we both ate one with just butter while the other batch was cooking.  

    Forgot to get a pic of his sandwich.  There are just three left. 


    Will definitely make again.

  6. Made three batches of dough this morning.
    All with 500g of flour, 50g of starter and 1 gram of yeast, 16g of salt. At 72% hydration.
    Two were identical and the third I added Kalamata olives during the stretch and folds.
    After the final stretch and fold, one batch went into the fridge and is destined for pizza and the other two were left out on the counter to rise.
    Baked late this afternoon, six baguettes and the olive bread baked in a DO.
    Sliced the Olive bread while still slightly warm. Couldn't resists.

  8. Inspired by @Kim Shook, I stopped on the way to work and picked up a Rotisserie chicken and made hot chicken sandwiches for dinner tonight.

    Added the drippings from the container to a skillet and cooked until they browned.  Added a little butter and made a roux.  Added chicken broth and seasoned with

    salt, pepper and rubbed sage.


    Made enough gravy for two open faced hot sandwiches. 

    Served with twice fried fries and canned peas.

  9. @Kim Shook, thanks for the inspiration.   I'm working today and Moe needs soft food for another day or two, so I think

    on my way to work I'll pick up a rotisserie chicken, one with enough drippings to make gravy and make hot chicken sandwiches for dinner.



    Last night's dinner spaghetti with my



     favourite Pork, garlic and fresh basil meatballs.

  10. So many wonderful looking meals and photos on this page.


    Had to go into Victoria yesterday morning because Moe was having some dental surgery.

    I was sure he wouldn`t be able to each much after or would even feel like eating so I made him a good breakfast.



    Leftover roast sirloin sandwich


    on homemade baguette.


    With horseradish sauce. 


    He will be on soft foods for the next few days so today`s breakfast is going to be oatmeal.

  11. Breakfast.
    Recipe based on the Vegetable Soup with Meatballs from the cook book, Every Grain of Rice: Simple Chinese Home Cooking, with some minor adjustments.
    So good. Moe described it as delicate and perfumed.

  12. Moe's breakfast (I'm taking to work for lunch).
    Beef Black Bean and Black Pepper stir fry.
    Thinly sliced a thick NY strip steak that I had planned to grill last night for dinner and didn't.
    Instead of using the wok, I used this big round cast iron griddle pan that covers two burners on the stove. I forgot about this pan, probably because it is so big and heavy. I like it better than my Wok. Seared the beef, removed and then added the vegetables, onions, peppers, red and green, and thai chili peppers, fresh garlic, julienned ginger. Finished with a little broth, black bean sauce, pepper sauce, tossed the beef again to coat and served over rice.

  13. Fed my two starters last night before going to bed. Poor babies had been neglected. Hadn't fed them since the first week of November.
    But they are very forgiving. They had almost doubled in 7 hours.
    I'll feed them both again tonight before using some of the discard in another batch of dough.
    I also made two 500g flour batches of dough with just the remnants from the container that I fed the starters in, along with 1g each of yeast at 72% hydration.
    Matt is going to make pizza with one of the batches and the other batch I baked this morning.
    Four small baguettes and three little rolls. Since I'm usually up between 2 and 3 AM, it is the perfect time to bake bread.
    Split one of the baguettes for Moe's breakfast.

  15. Moe had mentioned that we hadn't had clams in a while.


    So after the last baguette came out of the oven this afternoon, we headed over to the fish counter at Thrifty's and picked up clams.


    Love when the clams are little.   


    Served with pasta and bread for sopping up the sauce.

    Love the size of your rolls and the shine on the crust.

    This was from 250 g flour T55 and 10% red fife flour (high protien whole wheat) 75% hydration. Very happy with the thin crunchy crust and flavor. 

    @AAQuesada great crust and crumb.


    First bake for 2021.
    A couple of Home-Style White loaves. Reminds me of the bread my grandmother use to bake.
    Matt loves this bread for sandwiches and French toast.
    Moe was hungry and wanted a couple of slices while still warm.
    I also baked 10 baguettes. Dough was started very early this morning.

  18. Top Sirloin Roast two ways.
    Yesterday morning I roasted a little Sterling Silver roast and served it rare.
    Last night I put the left over roast in the Breville PC along with the leftover au jus .
    This morning Moe had a sandwich on homemade baguette, of melt in the mouth tender "pot roast".

  19. Moe has a lot of favourite meals. I had a top sirloin Sterling Silver roast that I presalted yesterday and was intended for tonight's dinner.
    I offered Moe a choice. Roast beef, mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding for dinner or roast beef, scrambled eggs and Yorkshire pudding for breakfast.
    He choose breakfast.
    I made mini Yorkshire puddings.
