Hello Louisiana!

April 10, 2021 Chris Malme 0

So here is a preview of the new toy, a Louisiana Grills Founders Series Premier 1200. It isn’t here yet, so the picture is stock. I am having it assembled before delivery – having assembled one pellet grill in the past, I decided I’d pay for someone else to do it. So the new grill should arrive next week.

Bye-bye Traeger

In 2010, I purchased my first pellet grill, a Traeger Lil Tex… the more I cooked on the Traeger, the less I wanted to play with charcoal.

Must try harder…

At Christmas I posted that I’d been neglecting this blog, and aimed to do better. But I have only posted one other thing since then!

Brussels Sprouts!

February 21, 2021 Chris Malme 0

I’ve just gone through all the plants, only picking the good firm sprouts, and not worrying about any that weren’t – they went in the garden waste with the plants.

Even so, I have a ridiculous amount of sprouts. Far too many to eat before they go bad.

Once again, I have been sadly neglecting this blog, even though I have plenty to post about. Will try to catch up in the New Year.

Return to the Mindful Chef

Mindful Chef is one of the recipe box schemes that I particularly like. I first used them back in 2016, and since then I have had several continuous subscriptions with them, with breaks in between.

Foodi Slow Cooked Stew

I’ve been having great fun with the Foodi as an air fryer and pressure cooker, but this is my first experiment with the Foodi as a slow cooker. Beef and mixed veg in a beef and red wine stock.

Foodi Adventures: Banana Chips.

October 16, 2020 Chris Malme 0

I ran the Foodi in dehydrator mode overnight, dealing with some bananas I needed to use up. This was my first experiment with the dehydrator, and it was a great success.

More Green Tomatoes

I’ve been harvesting the odd tomato here and then, as the ripen on the vine, but I have now given up and stripped my plants of the remaining tomatoes. Which are actually quite a few.

Last Broccoli From The Garden

September 30, 2020 Chris Malme 0

Having finished up all the good broccoli heads from the garden during the summer, the plants kept giving. Once the heads were taken, the offshoots start flowering – broccoli spears.
