    Food funnies

    “Trained scientists could parse Cooking with Paris for traces of self-awareness and come up none the wiser.” I got as far as the Slivers but I couldn’t go any further.

    Dinner 2020

    Perfectly simple. Simply good.

    Lunch 2020

    Part lunch, part experiment. I bought some leeks which are an expensive vegetable here. Even my hero, Jacques Pepin, suggests that leek greens are only good for stock. But I have seen hints elsewhere but they can be slowly sautéed and enjoyed just as one enjoys the other end of the leek. I have been promising myself for years that I would give it a shot. These were slowly sautéed in olive oil for about an hour after being very finally sliced. They become almost as silky as the white part. So I am calling this leek green gratin on toast.
  4. So somebody finally squared the circle?

    Breakfast 2020!

    inspired by a recipe in Half-Baked Harvest. Store bought naan, white sauce flavoured with dijon, prosciutto, cheese and baby spinach. Since the base was already cooked I didn’t think the egg would have time to properly bake if I just added it raw so I cooked it separately.
  6. Perhaps then you can build on your victory and combine it with the idea of the squeeze bottle and make teeny egg “planets”!

    Lunch 2020

    I have noticed the planned garnishes and final touches soon diminish in importance as the hunger increases. You are OK I think until you are spooning the stuff directly from the pan into the mouth completely by-passing the serving dish. That’s my standard anyway.
  8. By the end of the day she will be wishing she had a mini blimp on each foot doing a gentle massage and taking the weight off those dogs!
  9. Yeah::: favourite tastes perhaps but hardly flavours.

    Well depending on where you shop you will certainly find many, many things showing the weight in pounds and ounces rather than kilos and grams. There may be other things but they don’t come to mind at the moment. Perhaps other Canadian will jump in here with things they have noticed that are still in imperial measurements. The most ridiculous attempt to be metric, of course, is the use of millilitres to measure solids like flour and sugar. It may be metric but it’s not rational.

    Breakfast 2020!

    No I must confess I did not. I am not quite as over the moon with the gizmo as others are. I think it has passed its best before date for me! I still think it’s best use in my house would be deep frying but I haven’t done that in a couple of years. We shall have to see if I can think of other uses for the precision cooking method. Having been in close proximity to the Control Freak for some six weeks in the summer I think I am Inclined to considerate the Paragon “clunky”. Of course $69 versus $1800 ought to be considered as a factor. 😂

    Breakfast 2020!

    Store-bought naan, marinated artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, caramelized onions and mozzarella cheese.

    Lunch 2020

    soup made from a combination of restaurant leftovers and vegetables languishing in the crisper. A piece of leftover naan which apparently decided to go for a dip. That’s such a lie. I love dunking in my soup when I’m alone.
  14. I’m guessing it’s not very warm there from the looks of how the folks are bundled up. But I’m guessing it’s better than here where are temperature with the windchill factored in is minus 20°C.
