Maybe they got packed?  Was it called Shabu Shabu?

Unfortunately no - we haven't started packing the kitchen yet... they're just gone.  I don't think the place was called Shabu Shabu - but they also had that on the menu.

Is the pan electric, or is it sitting on an electric induction burner?


I have both. The one used for the Sukiyaki is an electric model, but the one I frequently use for the hotpot is an electric induction burner with different pans (including the yin/yang shaped one I prefer).

To prevent at least major mishaps on the table, I have fixed an electric cord running from the wall outlet to the leg of our table (with a lot of cable binders and some slack for the cable between the binders), and connect any tabletop appliance to that cable. In case of a trip it won‘t affect the burner/electric pan.

I delved into the world of Banh Mi for the first time.  I'm sorry I waited so long.

Last night was going to be meatloaf but I forgot to lay out the venison burger, so it was ribs instead with green beans, tomatoes and garlicky parmesan cheese and shells.

I have a power bar permanently mounted to the underside of my desktop for exactly that reason.

 

As/if/when I get to build the place I'm slowly planning, I will definitely make some provision for power in the island (assuming there is one...at present I'm leaning in that direction) and if not in the table itself, then at least "table-adjacent."

I picked it up at the Asian Market (the market was a new place for us...probably won't be going there again.  I posted about it on the Food in the time of pandemic thread lol).  It was labeled Banh Mi so I figured it was the right stuff.  At my usual market they are smaller loaves--like individual sandwich size.  This was a long loaf like enough for 3 sandwiches at least.

Nice to have. Current island has a duplex outlet on both ends. The GFI plug in the waste bin cabinet puzzled me - trash compactor ready I guess. 

ETA: house is on foundation with good crawl space so easy to stub up.

While it's always best to be safe, most people here today have free standing induction cookers for  their very popular hotpots. Trailing cables are common, but I've never heard of anyone pulling one over and causing mayhem. I think that, in the event of a trip, the plug is more likely to pull out than the cooker and pot to fall from the table.

 

I have the same set-up and never had a problem.

I would also not expect too many issues, however with a 7 year old in a hotpot frenzy or a global EHS responsible after his second 4-go of sake it is better to err on the safe side 😉

As you know, I just moved. Things arrived at the new place that were definitely 'just gone' months or years ago at the old place! Just today, I found my Japanese ginger grater which I hadn't seen for around three years!

Well, then there was the time in the country when I was bringing a huge stainless bowl of hot buttered popcorn from kitchen to main room. forgot I had put up the "kiddie gate" in the entrance I used to keep the cat from underfoot, crashed through the gate, knocking it aside, threw bowl and a gallon of popped corn into and across room....plied the cat off the ceiling where it felt it was safe...     Murphy's law.

They certainly look great - would you mind sharing your (quick) method ?

 

1 cup ricotta

1 egg

dash nutmeg

1/4 cup parmesean

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

 

mix together, then add 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. flour (you might need a little more, depending on how wet your ricotta is).  Turn out and knead into a smooth dough.  Cut into four pieces, and roll each piece out to a 1/2 inch thick rope on a floured board.  Cut into pieces and dump into salted water.  Once all gnocchi are floating, cook for 2 minutes longer, then remove with a slotted spoon and top with sauce.

Anyone who has had one of those in a doorway probably has a similar story. 28 years ago and my torn thumb tendon still screams at me most days. I can trip over my own 2 feet so @Duvel 's use of the ties etc appeals. 

Scheduled power outage all day tomorrow so planning the eating day now.

Sunday night is pizza night, but ...

 

I bought a rather large piece of „Dicke Rippe“ (pork breast tip), that needed to be cooked. So, why not combine ? I braised the pork in soy/wine/aromatics to make a very aromatic version of red cooked pork and made some „mo‘s“, which were cooked on the pizza steel ...

Structure of the bread came through nicely.

Topped with cucumber (not going into the „traditional“ debate here), cilantro and some chili crisp ...

There is no way to make this as good looking as it tasted. Little one agreed !

I'd like to do more at table (donabe, hot pot, sukiyaki, etc.) but I am a little bit nervous about using my induction and running the cord to the table, standing up, and basically tripping over the cord and making a giant cluster fuck of a mess.

 

Of course I could do everything on a propane burner...

 

@KennethT - what the hell was that place called - there was one at the foot of Orchard St. too, I think?

 

You could always use an A4 Box...

Came home from all afternoon biking and cooked this meal in one pan. Squash dumplings were made in advance and vacuum sealed so they only needed to warm up in the same pan.

A cookathon day, doing some meal prep...roasted a couple of split chicken breasts (simple salt/pepper/onion powder/paprika rub), baked tofu squares brushed with “vegetarian oyster sauce” from Wegmans (just a mushroomy umami flavor). For dinner we had turkey meatballs that bake in a vinegary sauce (threw some carrots in at the halfway point) and kale salad.

No pics 😥 but mahi fillets cooked in the Darto pan with  sweet potato cubed up and roasted in the counter oven, along with a mixed green salad.    And wine!
