Outside the Brown Bag - Taking my Kitchen Toys to Work

Recommended Posts

A 24 from 8 pm Friday night to 8 pm Saturday night. Good sleep overnight but a very busy day Saturday. Managed to make some Kimchi Jigae for my lunch (but forgot pictures). For dinner - I put a duck breast that I had sous vided a couple of days back fat down into a salted pan on the induction - then wandered back to work. 

 

Made a pan sauce with some vincotto that @Franci had given to me. 

 

Warmed some green beans in the nuke that I had brought from home.

That looks luscious. Did you find the time to actually sit and enjoy it?

Used the induction hob to make a Thai Red Curry with chicken, pineapple and lychee. IMG_4387.jpg.55045cc21a122d2b579c62b4d00ef015.jpg

Cauliflower rice roasted with a bit of olive oil for around 20 minutes at 425º F convection bake in the CSO.

How do you keep other people from sneaking in a eating all your food while you are otherwise occupied?

Nice.

 

the CSB ( 0 )   does two unexpected things

 

along with a BaZillion expected things :

 

Toast  ( from reasonably fresh bread )

 

and  

 

Chicken Thighs   ( w skin on -  bone in or not -- )

 

better than any other item you might by in your Home Kitchen or your Away Kirtchen

MedicalEmergency  NutirtionalCenter

""  you might want to get a Cab  and take that  [ injury etc ] over to that Other Place  ....   I think CharSiu is coming up soon.  if you wait , you might get

 

a taste on the other hand  ""

 

Just saying ...........

So I have this lovely Maple Vinegar I just pulled out of the barrel and decided that it needed to play a part in todays meals.

 

IMG_4767.JPG.596d0deef8d14833c37a0273363ac678.JPG

 

Sautéed some onions and red peppers, an anchovy fillet and garlic. Deglazed with some water and the vinegar. Mounted with a bit more vinegar and butter.

Browned a sous vide pork chop.

Picked up a nice little water heater at a thrift store on Thursday - giving it the vinegar treatment to get rid of the small amount of scale it had. It will go in the nurses lounge for instant hot water.

Decided to make the version of smashed burger from Food52 that showed up this week. Oklahoma Onion Burger

 

IMG_4888.jpg.fc264cf359b26b8e163fa5c2e98a7b16.jpg

 

Should have taken a pic on the plate - I'm very pleased with this burger. I gave the onions a few more minutes to saute and deglazed with a bit of maple vinegar.

 Glancing back a couple of posts to your pork chop I am thinking when I put my (last) chuck eye into the Sous Vide bath shortly I will piggyback a frozen pork chop that has already been Sous Vided and while it warms up I will fry up some peppers  and some onions!   You know what they say. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

 We have one in Manitoulin. It is very handy to have water already at the correct temperature for making tea. Kerry can make her tea as soon as she is out of bed, put the teapot into its Dutch warmer and go and take care of whatever needs to be taken care of and return to ready-made tea. I would have one if I drank tea but I drink coffee!
