So far I've settled in on four minutes at 375F for the chicken thigh.  I no longer feel the need to monitor with the thermocouple.

thank you so much.  I mean it

 

Ill have Phantasmagoric Nightmares tonight for sure

 

Crispy this Crispy that.

 

how much oil do you use , and what do you do with the oil after a Fry ?

 

that's   my  " Out "

 

I use about a gallon of peanut oil, exact amount not critical.

 

After the fry I simply place the cover on the pot.  Frying unbattered chicken does not contaminate the oil.  On the other hand after frying potatoes I do have to strain burnt bits from the oil.  So far I've been able to strain the used oil without mess -- by using my iSi strainer and funnel -- directly back into the gallon bottle.

I will not buy a Paragon, I will not buy a Paragon, I will not buy a Paragon, I will . . .

 

Will you really?

 

One good thing about being 50 miles behind the parade is that there is so little motivation to catch up.     I'd have to buy sous vide apparatus, a Paragon, after I bought an IP and friends.    I should write a book on cooking in the cave.

Paragon is marketed as a sous vide device...

Celebrating two new teeth -- thanks to the suggestion from @mgaretz

Carnitas Tacos from Roberto Santibanez's Tacos, Tortas, and Tamales.  Pork is braised in garlic, white onion, spices, coke.  The recipe calls for a cup of coke.  I used 355 ml, give or take a swig.

 

Long about the hour and a half point the pork looked perfect.  I followed the recipe and cooked for the full two and a half hours.  My amount of meat was less than called for and I wish I had stopped braising at an hour and a half.  Not a fault of the recipe.

interested in the Charred yam and potato salad Rx , if possible.

 

always interested in eating more Yams/sweet potato

 

Yukon golds diced and boiled for about 8 minutes.

Sweet Pots/Yams diced and pan fried till very dark on several sides. This takes some attention as a side can overcook and just be burned.

Dressed with mayo and a few splashes of jalapeno cider vinegar. S/P

I let it rest an hour ...maybe add a splash of HOAc and serve

Needed my favorite food yesterday.  I made a huge pot of spaghetti sauce yesterday afternoon.  Now I don't have to can tomatoes today :) 

 

Had venison meatballs in the fridge.  Need to make some more of those asap.

Pizza again for dinner.   Apparently this is becoming a weekly tradition. 

 

Made two batches of dough on Saturday and both went into the fridge.  Leaving one in the fridge until later this week and the other

made two pizzas and a baguette.

and a Pepperoni and olive for Moe.  I had one piece.   I'm tired of pepperoni. Going back to my favourite of Sausage and mushroom next time.

Sometimes I grab a cookbook off the shelf and make food from it all week.  This week I picked Andrea Nguyen's Vietnamese Food Every Day.  Tonight's dinner was ginger-garlic fish parcels.  She suggests salmon or halibut, and I used salmon.  The sauce is oyster sauce, soy sauce, sugar, pepper, garlic and ginger.  The parchment parcels have a layer of baby bok choy tossed with sesame oil, scallions, and then fish topped with the sauce and scallion greens.  I served with rice. Very nice dinner.
