    Camping, Princess Style

    I also find balsamic a natural pairing for Brussels sprouts. Sadly I once calculated the price per drop.

    Food recalls

    Do you open your email before lunch?

    Dinner 2019

    Clearly likable though I have no idea what I am liking.
  4. I'll second Thermoworks. But you probably want a temperature logger. Thermoworks has high temperature USB temperature loggers but they are expensive. I have a Thermoworks WiFi temperature logger but a wired connection is required between the thermocouple junction and the transmitter. Can't use it for the pressure cooker, can't use it for the CSO. Works fine for the conventional oven though. Someday one of the USB units! For the pressure cooker I use temperature sensing strips. The strips will record the maximum temperature reached but will not show the temperature variation over time.

    The Great Freezer Clean: 2019

    I was hoping to see Captain America.

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Tonight's result: Rather reminds me of last night's eclipse. As an experiment I increased my hydration* by about 1.5% to match Modernist Bread's French Lean Bread. I found that the KitchenAid dough hook would then engage at speed 4 rather than having to use speed 6. This batch was mixed 5 minutes on speed 4. No idea yet what I shall find inside! *actually the dough's hydration. My hydration is being increased by rum and peanuts.

    Are yours also not frost-free? ...in the summertime at least I mean.

    Only freezer I have is the little one that sits on top of my refrigerator.

    I wish my freezer were frost free.

    Click and Grow

    I replanted my peas again. I'd say the Click and Grow couldn't grow peas, but I have an eight inch pea plant who begs to differ. I suspect I am planting too deep or the soil is too moist, so this time I did not use the greenhouse lids. Had they been in stock when I started I would simply have ordered the Click and Grow pea plant pods. But they weren't. Kelvedon Wonder will have to do. Interestingly I noticed Burpee sells seeds for Peas-in-a-Pot, a ten inch variety.
  13. What about a retort bag in a pressure cooker?

    Dinner 2019

    Three minute rosemary mushroom pizza: Actually the mushrooms were leftover chicken cacciatore after the chicken part was gone. I think I finally have a handle on the ratio of blackened bottom and chewy crust. Very pleased.
  15. Wish I had that pork roast in my freezer.
  16. It's almost a standing joke here. The release date of the Anova Precision Oven keeps getting pushed back. Though there are several people on eGullet who are interested to see what they can do.

    Peas are pretty too!

    The Bread Topic (2016-)

    Tonight's baking: Since I found the secret to mixing: namely to mix on high enough speed to fully engage the dough hook, I have been achieving beautiful results. This was 4 minutes on KitchenAid speed 6.

    Power outage - sous vide

    And here I always thought as soon as power went out in Canada food temperature safely dropped below the danger zone?? Can't speak for Florida, however. Never been there. Count me a fan of UPS. I have two 1500 VA units.
  21. I had some Midnight Moon this morning, lovely indeed, thanks.

    Lunch 2019

    My version of low carb that I am about to go finish up with cheese and MR and apples: Not sure it's breakfast or lunch but my meal times are international. I am not a bigot. I am no respecter of time zones.

    Click and Grow

    Whatever else the light seems quite directional. There is not much spillover.
