  1. Chicken Cacciatore:





    I am not ashamed.  The chicken was thoroughly dysonized* and hence not rubbery in the least.

    **and Dreyer loves footnotes almost as much as I.

    Speaking as a high volume amateur without strong hands, one of the first purchases I would consider is:

  3. After a disappointing repast of rubbery tough chicken, greasy mashed potatoes, OK frozen peas, and not nearly enough cranberry sauce -- a delightful glass of green Chartreuse V.E.P.  Reserved for necessitous times like these.

    What's the indoor temperature?

    Peas like around 70F for growing. Yours look like mine in the summer.





    Yes, that's why I thought the problem might be heat stress.  It gotten as high as 81F in here.  The peas I'm growing are Kelvedon Wonder.


    On a related note a different pea seedling has been consumed with white fungus.  Should I rinse everything down with bleach?  I don't think I'll assay any more peas indoors as It's close to time for planting outdoors on the balcony.


  5. Trout, avocado*, coleslaw, Soave, bread, pistachio gelato, Maraschino cherry not shown.  As much as I like trout, one trout order from Prime Now is three dinners' worth for me.


    *avocado not shown because there wasn't one.

  7. Tonight -- this time mixed two and a half minutes speed 1, four minutes speed 2:





    The last couple weeks I've been using slightly higher hydration, which I find allows the dough hook to grab better at lower mixer speeds.  Oh, and for what it's worth this is ten minutes of steam for the boule.

    I'm working on him for a better lid for the little bowl - no joy so far!




    You could vaquform one!


    Seriously a better lid would be a big improvement.  I love the little bowl, it is so much easier to work with than the big bowl.  Last night I even thought about getting a second one but I was saved from temptation because they are out of stock.

  10. I'm embarrassed that I've never gotten around to using my mini bowl until now.  I seasoned with the sugar method.  There was powdered sugar even inside my chamber vacuum sealer.  I was most impressed.
