    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    I love Southern cooking’s flavours. I am going to have try with Anson Mills grits I purchased awhile back.
  2. Yum, beef tongue sandwich with lots of hot mustard!

    The Air Fryer topic

    When I move into my seniors living flat, I will get one! Right now, no room and too many other toys...by then there could be an air fryer, convection steam oven.🙃

    The Season starts in May and ends near the end of June. Spot prawns are very fragile and get mushy if they are not fresh. So be very careful with your supplier. Here are the ones we got last year for my birthday. I poached them.

    Thanks for the details on your shrimp cookery. I have done it once and am too lazy to get up to look at my notes to see what I did but I think it was 125f like I do when not sous viding. ha, last year for my bday I got live British Columbia Spot Prawns.$$ i just poached them in lemon/ garlic broth with the Thermapen monitoring...they were spectacular. With something like that I would be too nervous to do them SV..I guess I am more of a control freak.

    When I cook shrimp on the stove top I use an instant read thermometer stuck in the fat part of the critter to know when I am there....I know, my friends call me names.🙃

    I like the website also. I visited it when it won the award and had forgotten about it. I love the name too.
