    Breakfast 2020!

    Bakery sausage roll and some Maille honey mustard. The mustard was an unexpected food gift. The sausage roll hardly passes muster. Apparently the bakery is fearful of anything approaching seasoning. The sausage roll broke my fast but did very little to assuage my hunger.

    Much as I would like to blame something other than myself for my poached egg fail, I’m afraid it is just old age - - mine, and the eggs. both the eggs in line

    Poached egg fail! These once farm-fresh eggs have been hanging about too long. By the time I strained off the whites I found myself with little more than yolks. But I was impressed with the toast done in the Breville smart oven!

    Lunch 2020

    two slices of toast – – one with nothing but caramelized onions and the other with smoked duck breast.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Not a lot of cooking happening at chez Nielsen at the moment. Daughter has been doing my grocery shopping and visited a local bakery where she found some savoury pastries. This one is filled with pepperonata. They reheat very nicely from frozen in the Cuisinart steam oven. The pen is for scale. One of these makes a fine breakfast.
  6. Sorry I missed your question. When you posted it we were all still in drop off mode but since then we have had a couple of visits while respecting social distancing. Still have not left the house since mid March!
  7. Yes I downloaded the recipe book and I see that one recipe calls for an eight hour or longer cook.
  8. Oh yes. Not something that I am particularly anxious to own.
  9. What is an FB? Well apparently my math is even worse than I thought because 2011 to 2020 is not 11 years, it is only 9. And with that two extra years lopped off I do recall receiving a broiler tray and a pizza pan with my first oven. I do not, however, recall ever using these. But this new BSO is not a straight replacement for the old one but has that one feature that I was so missing on the old one – – an oven light, it also has two extra functions – – bagel which does not interest me since I don’t like bagels and slow cook which I probably won’t use either but it’s an interesting addition.
  10. Well apparently from the date on this post my Breville smart oven survived for almost 11 years of very frequent use. But it has been failing for months now and eventually became non-operative. I debated if I could live with just the CSO but much as I love that oven it just doesn’t match the BSO for capacity and it surely doesn’t re-heat pizza worth a damn. So today @Kerry Bealwas kind enough to pick me up a new one and deliver it, sans box, to my house. I just can’t deal with big cardboard boxes at the moment. I am sharing this even before I have taken a look at it in situ. I did notice that it seem to come with many accoutrements. I don’t recall there being anything with the first version. After I’ve had a chance to do some investigating I will post more.
  11. @shain Nice looking lunches! Well this is as close as it’s going to be for a while as far as the ladies who lunch is concerned. @Kerry Bealhad business in my end of the region today so she stopped by the Vietnamese restaurant in Oakville to grab me a Pork Wreck. and while I ate it alone I knew I was virtually connected because she had picked up two more of these for herself and her colleague who was waiting patiently back at the office. Menu.
  12. Looks as if it’s your dream come true. Now if only it will toast appropriately!
  13. @Kerry Beal visited @Alleguede’s pastry shop, Goûter, and returned with a CARE package for me! Locked down since March 15 so such thoughtfulness means a great deal.
  14. As bizarre as it may sound the CSO did a fantastic job on reheating a sausage McMuffin with egg! 325°F for eight minutes, steam bake, rack in the toaster position and muffin placed directly on the rack. Who knew?
