    Dinner 2019

    Amish chicken pot pie is nothing like this normal looking pot pie. Regulation Amish pot pie is a noodle soup like deal with no pastry at all. This manufacturer is not all that far down the road from us and well into PA Dutch country. I’d bet all their sales are not local. FWIW I think their product is probably better than the authentic one.
  2. I use a cheap escali that I picked up somewhere. It’s a horse. Escali Primo Digital Kitchen Scale (11 lb/ 5 kg Capacity) (0.05 oz/ 1 g Increment)

    I've been happy enough with re-frozen salmon and halibut. Better than the bin....

    Kid food

    Cheese sauce, peanut sauce, gravy , will cover a multitude of veg. Try poutine with fries and...roasted cauliflower. Avoid peas and lima beans and string beans. Vile veg that can’t be hidden under a sauce. The old standby of sweet stuff eg on yams , I think is a trap. They need to learn to love savory stuff. And the eternal “ you have to eat a forkful” eventually turns the tongue.
  6. It cooks so fast I've never SVd it. Usually its pounded and sauteed ...or browned and then roasted for a 10-15 minutes at 350F. I guess SV 140 F for an hour. But I'd brown and roast. Faster and reliable.

    Looks great. How long and how hot did you cook?
  9. What a change from a few years ago. Lots of SV options at a good price. Good times.
  10. I’m of no help with this one. 😁 I would say that wanting a second beer and actually having a few more are different things.

    You might add sage. I do sometimes.

    Tricks with brussel sprouts

    That’s a tough one. I make it by feel, I’ve done it so often. 1:1 is about right. With a tsp Dijon and some garlic minced in the sauce pan. And salt. Sometimes I sautée apple slices till they break down a little and add that. Id shoot for about a cup of sauce for 4 people so 1/2 cup each. I thicken with corn starch to get it so it coats a spoon but isn’t viscous. Apologies for the imprecision. I cook like a grandmother at times. 🙂
