Decided to have a little more fun with the Control Freak - had picked up some russet potatoes yesterday at Wegman's - cooked in milk and butter for around an hour. No masher available so mashed with a fork. Added back some of the milk and butter they had been poached in.

Reheated the hollandaise left over from yesterday - better than extra butter.

You're going to have people lined up at your door trying to place orders if the smell gets out...

I was thinking something similar! Or, if they catch a glimpse of that drool-worthy salad.   🙂

I take it there are no decent restaurants in Lancaster. A shame. I do remember a good German place somewhere in that vicinity....

 


Don't ask. Eat it.

I know there are - but I had a rather large Negroni that I took down to the reception after the trade show in one of the paper coffee cups from the room and driving didn't seem like a good idea.

So, what's on the menu for breakfast? I'm hoping for Control Freak eggs benedict.

the Perfect automatic tempering machine, enrober and cooling tunnel. Very well priced relative to other machines.

 

This is something really nice to see. I always wondered why chocolatiers in the USA felt the need to import Selmi and FBM. You should save a lot of money only on import fees.

They will still have to import this one - but from Canada!

As close to eggs Bennie as I'm going to get with no bread component. The cheese muffin that I had picked up a few days back was not really salvageable.

This was 5 minutes at 85º C - next time 4 minutes I'd say.

Looks lovely even without some bread for smooshing in the sauce. I'm sure you'll be able to dial in the right amount of cook on the poached eggs.

 

And as I keep saying to myself... I don't need or have space for a Control Freak, CSO, Freeze Dryer, Thermomix, Selmi, melanger, etc.... Don't worry, you have all tempted me into many purchases. Just holding firm (for now) on quite a few more! 🙂

A good reason to add an EZ Temper to the order and save on shipping costs.

Before I left the hotel room - I asked the maid to come in and have a look at all the stuff I was leaving - with the thought that if she seemed upset I'd lug it back to a thrift store on my way out of town. On the contrary - she was thrilled, ran across the room and gave me a big hug! So she was up 3 pots, a mason jar, basil, tarragon, eggs and milk. Oh yeah - and a great big heavy plate!

One of my favorite parts of this long drive is the piece along the river on Highway 15. 

 

I have a bit of a thing for Stickley furniture - particularly the inlaid pieces. I had to stop at the store in Shomoken Dam and admire this particular piece. Couldn't convince the hubby to let me bring it home via text message however.

Lunch was the same as yesterday - not quite as attractively packaged.

 

IMG_4865.thumb.jpg.07d129358a6be1e82c6f162c8e06ffc7.jpg

 

 

So I am home - sitting in front of the TV with a cuppa. I have unpacked the cheese, butter, burrata and 2 packages of those Sugar Bomb tomatoes that I picked up at Wegman's in Buffalo (oh yeah, got some chuck eyes as well). Also the blister peanuts and cereal bars from Trader Joe's. 

 

The blister peanuts will be make into the candied peanuts mentioned earlier. 

 

I was given several packages of the Ruby Chocolate that @patris had obtained from TJ's - they had no more today. I'll make a few easter things with it. 

 

I has as yet not brought the Control Freak out of the car - nor the other things that's in there which I neglected to show you - a 3D printer that I bought from a fellow on ebay.

That desk is gorgeous. Looking forward to seeing the other things you acquired. Congrats on the 3D printer!

When I was a teenager (a couple years ago) this song:

 

 

was a big hit here in Italy. I suppose it's totally unknown out of our frontiers and you preferred remaining ignorant. Let's say the singer was admired more for her big eyes than for her voice.

 

Maybe I should rewrite that song's lyrics for this thread.

It was a beauty!  Apparently about half the price of a similar item being sold in Florida that was not nearly as beautifully refurbished!

If you like Stickley as much as I do (and history as well) next time you are on the east coast of the US you are welcome to our chair and a half that opens out into a twin bed so you can check out Craftsman Farms - http://stickleymuseum.org. It is about halfway between @MetsFan5 and me and there is a Wegman's just a bit down the road and a nice Viet-Thai restaurant, Lemongrass: http://www.lemongrassnj.com/ as well.

It's easier to ask forgiveness than to beg permission?
