solids don't get smashed flat im a chamber vac.

 

Ive firmed up burgers in the freezer first for a while , not frozen of course

 

but it didn't seem to matter very much

 

Never tried hamburger but chicken gets mashed flat to my experience.  And why would it not?

@JoNorvelleWalker 

 

you must be getting some strange chicken.

 

Ive done tons of SV CkBr 

 

and they stay more or less w the same geometry they had before they get in The Bag.

 

softer items  might flatten a little 

 

its been said that you don't want to ' pull ' a full vacuum w fish , as it would get smooshed 

 

but cod hasn't for me , but its a firm fish.

 

if you vac's a poached egg sans shell , then one might see a different geometry in 

 

the vac's bag.

Pan fried bulgogi mandu with rice and kim che.  The mandu was in the freezer and I could cook it without taking too much attention away from the football game.

followed by...recycled roast snapper tempura.    Well, what are you going to do with super fresh, roast snapper after you do fishcakes?

With choice of recycled caper sauce and cocktail.    Surprisingly delicious.

Pizza.  I tried a new dough recipe which was not as cooperative as my usual, so ended up with some weird shapes.  Butternut squash, apple butter, prosciutto, carmelized onions, sage, thyme and cheese

Pizza with character! What’s wrong with that I ask you.

My son’s birthday yesterday.  He loves lamb so....

BJ’s had the fattest pair of shanks in their meat  case.   They were huge, plenty of leftovers

Porrusalda.  This is a Basque homestyle dish, stew or soup - you be the judge, and one which I encountered at Ernesto's recently.

 

Of course, it's basically a simple leek and potato soup, here supplemented by carrots, the leeks sweated in both duck fat and olive oil.  In Basque Country, they might add soaked salt cod to the dish before serving, to make it more substantial. 

 

It's classically water based (as is the leek and potato soup I often make), but the cup or so of chicken stock I had sitting in the fridge, was added and certainly didn't detract from the dish - it added to it.  

 

Oh yeah, it's topped with a sprinkle of espelette, a la Ernesto's.

Butternut squash stew in coconut milk with onions and Trader Joe red curry paste.  Topped with scallions and cashews.

Thai style vegetable curry with coconut milk and crispy chickpeas.  Veggies were broccoli, peppers and carrots, plus a mango and pomegranate seed garnish.  Quite nice and a decent level of heat.  Recipe from the Half Baked Harvest cookbook.  I guess Half Baked Harvest is a food blog.  I have never read the blog, but I like the cookbook.  Most of the things I am making this week are coming from it.

Tonight's dinner: pork, bean, and tomatillo chili with pita and slow-sauteed baby carrots (aka: what I threw together in my head while shopping)

This looked so good that I forced my eyes to avoid those words “crispy chickpeas” and went off to find the blog and to look up the book. I shall be following closely what you make this week before deciding whether or not to spend my precious Christmas gift certificate on the book. But please don’t feel pressured. 😂

Crispy Pork Carnitas Taco with Onion, Cilantro and Salsa Verde - one of two!


Yes, please... but my brain doesn't comprehend tacos in numbers smaller than six and generally prefers larger numbers than that. :D

I come to look at all the nice food and then contribute nothing but a sandwich. :P Needed food for the college football championship game last night and didn't want a lot of work or a big mess. The game was in New Orleans and with Bama not in it, I decided to stick with the SEC and was pulling for LSU so the muffuletta seemed like the perfect solution. Instead of the traditional giant sandwich, I went with individual sized on ciabatta buns.
