    Do you sear after the Sous Vide, or before?

    I've wanted to for quite some time and this was only my second time using the unit. I quite like it.

    I seared it afterward. I thought if I seared it first, the crust would lose its crustiness in the moist environment. One of the recipes that came with the unit calls for searing both before and after sous vide. I'll give that a try next time. I think searing beforehand will allow the filet to better keep it's shape when vacuum sealed. (I use an honest-to-goodness vacuum sealer...not the plastic hand pump that came with the unit.)

    Pancakes on the flat top this morning. Not just any pancakes, though. Alton Brown’s pancakes.

    Sub from Subway after an afternoon of packing furniture from a house now a nap, the hall that they use for the auction is busy tomorrow so they won't need so a really long nap.

    Dry roasted, unsalted peanuts for my afternoon snack. I'm trying to be good, I really am, but every time I'm in a store I'm SO tempted to grab a bag of chips. Crisps, to you in the UK and elsewhere.

    They are normally called Potato Chips in Australia. Some imported product is labelled as Crisps. The 'hot' version is usually just called chips - except at places like McDonald's etc where they are called fries.

    And to round it off - here the entrée is a starter dish not the main course and pop/soda is called soft drink

    Instant Pot, anyone?

    This is probably the best spot to ask without starting a new thread - I was wondering if folks here have an Instant Pot or similar item and if they use it? From what I can see, their main use appears to be as a pressure cooker with a timer, and that mostly to speed up cooking. I’m mildly curious but I don’t have a lot of storage space in my kitchen for extra appliances, and my guess is that one would go mostly unused.

    We have one and I mostly use it to make chicken stock. Doing so saves a lot of time but I never use it as a slow cooker (we have one of those, too).

    Some products here, notably Pringles, are called crisps. Because they don't meet the legal requirements to be called "potato chips".

    Entree as the starter makes sense to me!

    Ha, for type two where GI, (glycemic Index ) is important, both peanuts and crisps (your chips) and even chips (fries) are better than biscuits, (cookies), and mashed or boiled potato because, I think, of the high fat content. The fat content seems to slow conversion to sugar and reduces intake because eating fat reduces appetite. But just eating cheese snacks is a better policy and gradually eliminates the carb habit. That has to be just cheese and not “cheese on everything”! My USA experience makes me rant about sugar in bread and so called fat free products bulked out with complex sugars. But I will restrain myself.

    Indeed. I just can't have cookies/biscuits in the house.
    Except for two large sealed tins of Walker's Shortbreads which taunt me every time I go into the garage.

    Yep, Pringles is the main one that I think of being sold as 'crisps' in Oz.

    And I forgot that Pop/Soda is also commonly referred to as 'cool drink' - especially in Western Australia.

    Oh, I sympathise. It was over indulgence in shortbread, sugary crumbles and the like that brought on type two for me. But fortunately for me, I like fish! Tinned sardines in olive oil are still cheap and sustainable, for now.

    I haven't eaten in a restaurant in a year. But I did last night in my dreams, ordering a BLT. It came with a hamburger patty in it.

    PetersCreek, I saw your sous vide post and was wondering if you feel you use the sous vide often enough to justify it? I’ve looked at that, it is supposed to make for some great (tender) steak and beef, but the cook time can be very long, and in my case, I don’t eat beef nearly as much as I used too. I am curious though, and also wondering what you think it works best on.

    Tonight we had some Confit Duck Legs which had been sitting in the fridge for a few months - bought partly cooked and sealed in a package. It only took 15 minutes in the oven plus a few minutes under the grill to prepare. They were very nice. I served them with roast potato and sweet potato plus some beans, cauli & broccoli.

    Bagel with peanut butter and coffee!
    I bought a jar of "natural" peanut butter because the regular brand has added sugar. It's the sort you have to stir because the oil separates. Yesterday I had a brainstorm and set the jar upside down for overnight. It worked!

    Beef stew with a biscuit, and apple crisp afterwards. I was working at the local legion unloading a truck for the auction company and overheard that the legion had a take away dinner and there were a few leftover servings so I picked a couple.
