    • Food photo time! (I gotta pick up on these more!). I've been cookin new stuff lately I just haven't been photoitizing them...

      Dinner last night. The best pork I've ever made paired with the worst hollandaise I've ever made. Sous vide pork finished on the BBQ with a maple, red onion, ginger and chili powder glaze. Asparagus topped with hollandaise (hollandaise was the perfect consistency but too much lemon :-()

            • So - I'm looking at the Sous Vide Supreme Delux Promo Pack --- $569.00 for the lot of it. Do you think that's a good deal? I think it would be a fun thing to have and since its just hubby and I at home now it would get lots of use!! I love the idea that you can't overcook the meat - and I have to say the picture of that pork you made is enough to sell me on buying one!!!!

              Question - we already have a food saver sealer - can we use that instead of buying the one that Sous Vide sells? It looks like the same thing.
              1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
              2. Eat to heal
              3. Move to live
              4. Embrace today
              5. Live with intention
              6. Respect my body
              7. Cultivate joy
              8. Find my passion
              9. Meditate on peace in my soul

              • Yeah, if you've already got a food saver and bags you won't need the whole pack. Just the box.

                • Do you have to torch it to get the nice browning?

                  • The browning is the glaze + the bbq. Meat coming out of a sous vide looks as boring as boring comes. The sousvide is there for even cook and amazing mouthfeel but food should be finished in a pan to get a good color on the outside.

                        • Tomi! you are a sweetheart you know that? It's been a rough day getting lost in my own thoughts so to come home and log into this reminder is what I needed. Praying hard for a lot of things lately. Life has been shifting and I'm trying to humble myself before him and ask for him to take it all. I know he's got a plan. A friend put it this way the other day. "He didn't take you this far just to abandon you". Every reminder helps.

                          • Wise words from your friend

                            God has a plan:

                            Jeremiah 20:11

                            "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".

                              • We all have those days - that sometimes stretch into weeks. That's why we have the "family" to come beside and gently remind us of the simple basics of the Christian faith. Sometimes its hard to trust when we see nothing happening, but there is always work being done to pave the path for what is coming. Its hard for us to see the laying of the pavement when our eye is on the destination, the end result. God see's the road inch by inch.......... we want to see the destination and forget to watch the progress of the path being layed out before us. Especially when difficulties and struggles are clouding our vision. If only God would give us just a tiny little peak at the end result it might make the struggles a bit easier to endure.

                                1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
