Cooked up a couple of artichokes in the IP for my lunch. Cooked for 15 minutes - but 20 would have been more ideal.

I'm sure they are local, free range, non GMO - no wait they were in the bargain bin - got 6 nice big ones for $1.99. They were however organic - cause that's what was in the bin.

Hey I live in artichoke land so of course they are from elsewhere. They don't even try to sell them here in winter. Daniel Gritzer of Serious Eats recently spoke of self incinertig ones that were out of season - he is in New York City.  He cut into an out of season one that was really dry and it spraked on the knife. But ya got the ER doc right there ;)

I rarely find artichokes worth buying anytime of the year up here in the Okanagan.  I don’t think there is a big demand and the produce managers don’t know how to care for them.  They are invariably dried out and spongy.  Sad.

One of the things I found in the freezer in the great freezer clean was a package of figs stuffed with chocolate left over from eggfests / so I nuked for a total of 60 seconds to get the chocolate melty. 3 left 

 

 

 

Also from the freezer were some raspberries - cooked down a bit with some sugar. Used some today for some Paul Young brownies that will be cut when I’m back on Saturday.

For lunch I made red Thai curry with chicken from freezer.

I pulled shrimp, salmon and cod (the latter caught by my Newfoundland relatives) from the freezer last night and made chowder. No pictures because I'm lazy, and because chowder isn't super-photogenic at best.

Paul Young brownies


Have you tried doubling his brownie recipes? Just wondering if his recipes work well in larger batches in larger pans with potentially longer bake times. I don't mind giving it a shot myself, plan to this weekend, just thought I'd ask in case you've already done it.


It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

He makes them in full sheet pans. So doubling is just a start!

Yeah, I suppose that would make doubling a bit of a non-issue, wouldn't it? :D A doubling I shall go...

Edit: I suppose I should disclaimer that I don't need a double batch of brownies sitting around tempting me, just want be able to set a little aside for myself before the vultures descend.

Got a tour of our new ER (opening next month) - there are a couple of rooms available for naming yet (with a sizable donation). For a mere $10,000 this could be the ChocDoc WC - what do you think?

I had a late night here last night - slept at the house they have for out of town family members. Wish I'd known to take towels from the hospital with me when I headed over there.

Had a pre sous vided pork steak in the fridge - made a suitable breakfast.

 

Cut up the brownies from the other day - some for the emerg, some for the family of the patient that kept me here so late last night.

$10,000, no copper handle, a ripoff.  Though EZtemper washroom has a nice ring to it.

I found my first one (actually @Anna N eyeballed it) at Value Village - then shopped around and got one of each size for home and one for work.

I can absolutely see someone cheerfully coughing up the money in order to name the washroom after their least favorite politician.

unfortunately not really.   I have the same ' hob ' you have in the pic

 

but I need to get some electrical work done.

 

and inertia looms large here.

 

this seems to be the same sort of pan Jaime Oliver uses in his last series and sells in Gb

 

but with a different handle.

 

the pans I have a very nice and I enjoy them

 

Ive given up on changing to a large induction top w and electric oven

 

as Meile does not have a combi for the lower oven

 

at its price , It wont do a lot for me.  

 

w a conbi oven it would.
