    Dinner 2020

    @weinoo, Love this dinner. Moe would be thrilled if I made him quail AND a salad. Pizza tonight.

    OOOH those roasted potatoes are perfect. @patti, I would love a few of your zucchini fries. Made two 500g(flour) batches of dough today at 80% hydration, destined for pizza tomorrow. In the fridge for a longer cold fermentation. And one batch at 1000g (flour) at 72% hydration for a same day bake. Moe loves escargot, so I made him escargot in mushroom caps for dinner with baguette to sop up the garlic butter wine sauce.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Made Moe a Mushroom Omelette with toasted baguette for breakfast yesterday, and today we had Chicken Fried Rice. I had planned to make it last night for dinner, but made it this morning instead.
  4. Heads Up. I don't know how accurate this is, but, I recommended the CSO to a Facebook friend who lives in South Dakota. She was having problems finding one so she called Cuisinart and was told that they were discontinuing the steam oven. Thankfully I still have one in a box. But for anyone thinking that they might want to have a backup, you might want to do it sooner rather than later. It is currently on sale at Costco Canada for $198.00
  5. Thanks @curls. I have to agree with you. I very seldom bake in the DO. Just as easy to shape and bake directly on a stone in the CSO. Although I tend to bake smaller loaves in the CSO.

    Bone in centre cut NY Steak. Steak and Frites with a Gorgonzola Green Peppercorn butter.
  7. @&roid well it was the first time using. Took it out of the box and fired it up. Was really happy with the first try. I've decided that I need a better surface to use it on so looking at buying a stainless table that is a little higher.

    Short Ribs with polenta and rapini. Cooked in the Breville PC.
  9. I don't think you need any help. That loaf looks wonderful. I bet it made great toast. Baked a large boule in a DO tonight and a smaller boule in the CSO on the bread setting Bread was from the same batch of dough as the pizzas made tonight. Dough was give a 24 hour cold fermentation. Edited to add - Sliced this morning.
  10. Test drive today. First Second Took about 75 seconds to bake.

    Trial Run. First pizzas out of the new Ooni Koda 16 Gas Pizza Oven. I think there is a bit of a learning curve, but all things considered I'm really happy with first try.

    @heidih, I won't use the brined green peppercorns. I don't like them. I swear I can taste the brine. I buy dried green peppercorns. They were hard to find around here sometimes so I started to order them on line from The Silk Road Spice Merchant in Alberta, but I'm sure you can find them in your area.

    There was a small piece of leftover steak from Moe's dinner on Friday night. Saved it and made him a sandwich on homemade baguette. Sliced the steak thin using an electric knife.

    Dinner 2020

    Before leaving for work yesterday morning I roasted three chicken breasts and made gravy. Netted 2 1/2 cups of gravy. Dinner was hot chicken sandwiches with double fried fries. I bought a whole strip loin on my way to work Friday morning. I cut it into five thick steaks, each big enough for two, one slightly smaller steak and a roast. I wasn't hungry Friday night, after having a late lunch so I made Moe one of his favourite meals with the smaller steak. Green Peppercorn Steak. Roasted potato wedges

    I made dough Sunday night for pizza this week. I was expecting the Ooni Pizza oven to arrive Monday and I would give it a test drive. But it didn't arrive. So, when it was obvious that it wasn't arriving today either, I took the dough out of the fridge and we made pizza tonight. Cooked on stones on the grill. I'll have to made another batch of dough tomorrow and have it ready to go when the pizza oven arrives. Moe and I shared an Italian sausage and mushroom pizza.

    Burger night. Too lazy after work to make fries so potato chips had to do.

    Dinner 2020

    Reading all the Thanksgiving posts on line this morning had me craving a traditional turkey dinner. I was hoping that the grocery store I pass on the way to work would have a fresh turkey breast. But no such luck. I knew it was a long shot. So I bought chicken instead. Walked in the house at 5:20 and turned the oven on. Got the chicken in the CSO oven at 5:30. Put the potatoes on to cook, and got the brussels sprouts ready to steam. No time to make homemade stuffing so I decided to use the corn bread I made this morning for breakfast to doctor up a box

    Leftover Prime Rib beef dip sandwich on homemade baguette. Moe's breakfast. I'm working today so this should keep him going until dinner.
  22. I try and get a head of the game and have a few extra baguettes in the freezer so on weeks that I don't bake we don't run out. I work from Thursday to Sunday so I try and bake on at least one of my days off. I was complete out before baking on Monday and I knew Monday's bake wasn't going to last until next week so I baked again yesterday. 8 baguettes, six regular and two cheddar.

    @Kim Shook, I'm sorry that you are still hurting. And I have to tell you, I love your posts when you share so many meals in one post. And it probably won't make you feel any better, but if I was out of commission we wouldn't be eating nearly as well as you are. Poor Moe can boil water for tea. And could probably make me toast, and possibly open a can of soup. But that would be it. His intentions would be good though. Last night's dinner. Prime Rib and Yorkshire Pudding.

    Breakfast 2020!

    This is pretty much the only reason I make my own bread. Toast. I love my toast well toasted and with lots of little crannies for the butter to melt into. Breakfast this morning. Toast and tomatoes.
  25. Today's bake. Started a 1000g batch of dough at 72% hydration, after I got home from work last night. After the last stretch and fold I put the dough container outside on the porch. Like when it is cold enough that I don't have to find room in the fridge for the big container. Brought it in early this morning at 3:00 AM and left it to warm up and finish rising. Baked seven baguettes.
