    Thanks for this. It's been way too long without a Henry sighting.

    Waffles!

    So use it here. eta I use my beloved Bamix immersion blender. YMMV.

    Waffles!

    Try this yeasted recipe that I love because I can mix it the night before and bake waffles next morning while still half asleep. -> Ethereally light and super crispy waffles. Same problem as you is more batter than waffles for just a few people Batter seems to keep well for a couple of days in the fridge, if you're inclined to want two waffle feasts in one week.

    I have never thought of picking chicken's being a "thing". I do know that, given a conventional roast chicken and no witnesses, I can surgically remove wings, tail, back, and leave what looks like an intact bird on the platter. As I've written, roast chicken turns me into Henry the VIII.

  6. weinoo et al, next time you're in Paris, do make a point of visiting Workshop isse on rue St, Augustin, east of Opera. Joyous collection of condiments, vinegars, rice wines, warm welcome and generous samples.

    I am repeatedly astounded by the joy you bring this young man. A truly wonderful mutual appreciation relationship.

    Tell her you are exercising a variation of the French custom of 'le croûton' or 'le quignon', granting the bread shopper an end of the baguette to munch on his walk home.

  16. What is your method for the lacy, airy batch you posted upthread?
  17. I have successfully used this Green Olive sauce for pan roasted duck breast. A clasic and NOT SWEET.
  18. Like any immersion blender, when engaged, the working head MUST stay below the surface of the liquid or product being mixed or you will spray/shoot puree over the immediate area...and beyond only to be found a week later.
  19. By no means does everyone love their Bamix! Vis a vis the number of posts telling of tossing it after not using it in a year. Which is, of course, the crux. i use mine often for these almost instant soups, for making sauces like Little Green Dress, Green Goddess and ranch, for milkshakes, for crushing/pureeing fresh or canned tomato, for bean dip. The pro is a power horse. So, yes, it will certainly handle the contents of your Creuset. I love it because it is so easy to clean, one piece, unlike a blender or food processor.
  20. per 2 tablespoons 70 calories 1 gr total fat 140 gr salt i.e., high 2 gr protein (bugs?) from Buona Fortuna Foods, LLC Modesto, California I bought it at Pic and Save, a discount outlet en route to the country where we stop for junk food and odd-ball items like this
  21. Again beating my dead horse, it rained last night so husband is finally able to attack the burning pile, which is the size of s Tuff Shed. It's pretty cold out, so I thought "mid-morning soup". Boiled up a half head cauliflower, a potato and an onion. Soft in 15 minutes, add milk and cream, a good spoon of curry powder. Grab Bamix off the wall and in 2 minutes have a steaming velvety pottage which I took out to him in a large mug. Pour a mug for myself. Wash soup pot, rinse Bamix and DONE.
