    Dinner 2019

    Usually or perhaps I should just say often, lunch is dinner leftovers. But tonight dinner was lunch leftovers. Reheated in the CSO (Cuisinart steam oven) to perfection.
  2. This is what I wanted for dinner yesterday evening but by the time I got around to thinking about it I had pretty much used up all my energy for the day. Did not want to miss another meal so it became lunch today. Loin lamb chops (SV’d), grilled onions, blistered Campari tomatoes.

    Breakfast 2019

    Grilled portobello caps with blue cheese and a side of a Sugar Bombs.
  4. And do cows have a backstrap? Never seen anything in my supermarket labelled as such.
  5. I think you are trying to test my visual acuity or perhaps even my food knowledge! I can figure out the first dish which is my current favourite breakfast, pita bread and scrambled egg. But that second dish has me stymied.
  6. I hope you got some help with the cleanup! Everything looks fabulous.
  7. A bit early this week. I was sure that this was going to be a big fail and I would have to repeat it tomorrow. I wanted to make shortbread but was fairly certain that if I made it traditionally such as petticoat tails or bars I would end up with cookie crumbs and not much else as I tried to cut them apart. ButcI was sure I had made this lot some shortbread previously. Sure enough I did. But I made cookies. How sensible. But I was still on my failure path so did not pull back and say that all this could wait until tomorrow! As you can see some are more brown than others. I was also trying to make use of two ovens today to cut down on the amount of time needed. I was using the Cuisinart steam oven along with the Breville smart oven. This posed more challenges than I had expected. I could not get them in synch so that the cookies were ready at the same time. The extreme spreading of one cookie on the tray suggest to me that the mixing was not adequate. But I’m open to other suggestions. I will let you know if any of the cookies get rejected.

    Stovies reheated in the CSO (Cuisinart steam oven). An overnight rest definitely improved these.

    What we have here then is stateless tuna.

    Lunch 2019

    After some thought and a little bit of research I think I am concluding that the egg was in fact as it should be for an onsen egg. I did chill the eggs down before refrigerating them. But today I was curious so I took the second egg straight from the refrigerator and broke into it without any reheating. The only thing I could think of to do with a cold egg was to make an egg salad. Was a little bit different than usual but quite tasty. I added some chopped scallions and a wee bit of Hellmann’s and some salt and pepper and served open face egg salad sandwiches. OK so a lot of pepper.
