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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
