    I'm speechless.

    Were you swigging on a goblet of wine while cooking your meat? Argh Billy. Looks like a good way to save on fuel costs too.😁
  3. Very cool. Keep the documentation coming!
  4. I will add my thanks for entertaining us over the course of the ‘hunt’. I hope Chum got some nice fresh ground meat too!
  5. There is another thread on this topic but I am unsure about how to reference it so just do a search. Meanwhile these videos show you what the texture is of various times and temps...your preference. One thing I have found about ribs...it really depends on the quality of the meat. Get the best quality you can. https://www.youtube.com/user/chefsteps/search?query=short+ribs

    As It happens, again, I made said five hour duck two nights ago....fail. Maybe it was my duck but the skin never really got crispy (fat was rendered though) and the meat got dried out. 😫 Don't know what I did. Followed instructions faithfully. How did yours turn out?

    I love old houses like yours....just a comfy place to be. Bribery is a powerful tool! Our Kerries were not allowed into the dining ‘area’...no separate room. They were so good at sitting just on the border with their heads up sniffing what they were missing. They did not get fed from any table and rarely got human food...as it should be. BUT, we had friends who would encourage them over to them at the table for a pat...🤬

    Now that is a beautiful platter of food! And, yes the dinning room is to die for. Your dinning room table is also lovely...nice and wide (like ours) which excellent when serving platters of food such as you made leaving lots of room for glasses, etc. Is Henry allowed in the dining room?.....you can reply in the “other thread” so we don’t get off track.

    Cooking Goose

    I made this about 10 years ago and have note "excellent sauce" on the recipe: https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/roast-goose-with-oranges-and-madeira-966 or you could make a port sauce. I don't SV duck breasts so can't advise but they should be similar to the way you do duck. Your sides sounds great...maybe some braised leeks too or a salad as this will be pretty rich. Nice price, I might add.

    You’re kill’in me! Wow, everything looks so delicious. Sous vide is such a great treatment for octopus. A local restaurants has it grilled a bit after sous vide also served with a lemon and oil.
  11. Your DH is very skilled with his knife work and knowing his way around the inside of a deer! Your pizzas look very inviting as did the salad. Thank you for doing the blog....I always enjoy it. cheers

    It will reheat them nicely.

    Did you use your air fryer to cook the egg rolls?
  14. On Netflix, watched it a few weeks ago. Very sad. I don’t buy avocados anymore...not that we ate a lot of them...maybe 5 a year. https://readysteadycut.com/2019/10/04/recap-rotten-season-2-episode-1-the-avocado-war-netflix-series/
  15. I’m plonking a big hunk of mushroom butter on my steak tonight!

    Dinner 2019

    We had lamb chops, baked potato with chive butter, green onions and bacon. Some sautéed snap peas and sous vide pearl onions.

    What a wonderful dinner you put up for your guests! Well done.
  18. It’s an Excalibur. Fantastic driers. Lifetime warrantees. Disregard this response as I miss understood the question. I don't know how the Breville food drier works. edited 10:24 am Nov 18
  19. As others have noted, the steam feature and the toast function alone are worth getting the oven. The fact that people are buying ‘spares’ in case, God forbid, production comes to a halt...I have a spare....gives you an idea about how cherished they are. I use mine more than twice a day. I love the warm feature for getting my plates warm for dinner...pet peeve is food served on cold plates. i am a big fan of air frying and others love the other features of the Breville. I don’t have one because I have a nice food drier and an air fryer. Christmas is coming.

    Roasted mushrooms

    I should have got some for my baked potato tonight...next time. Polenta, oh yeah...made the Marcella Haven way....traditional...I did this for our neighbours who are Celiac and they never imagined little old polenta could taste so good.

    I think I’d like to learn more about your nachos...what kind of cheese for sure and seafood selection? Is there a white sauce on there too? Thanks in advance
  22. It really makes the freezer more efficient when the air pathways are not blocked off. If my upright gets jammed up, I transfer food to the chest freezer. 😍 tonight’s dinner is mostly from the freezers...lamb chops, chive butter, bacon, sous vide baby onions and roasted mixed mushrooms. Baked potato being cooked and some sautéed snap peas.

    Yes, I have made that butter which is utterly delicious ....hide the toast!
