Veggies sous vide

Filed under: Uncategorized — michael @ 8:50 pm

K was more than capable of the simple prep into the bag, and they were great.  But what I want to know is, how does the pro stop the puch from floating, the veggies are naturally going to trap air, and some float anyway.  My ghetto solution seemed kinda inelegant, though perfectly functional.

Initial sous vide observations

First: yes, sous vide beef is excellent, one gets uniform cooking throughout and a final sear does the trick, and lesser cuts of meat can be as succulent as steak.

Second: indeed, eggs scrambled French style have a pretty unique texture, but apparently I am the only family member who actually enjoys the unique texture.

Third: it takes a while to cook many things, but it’s pretty much set and forget, so it’s pretty simple.

Fourth: the kids quite like veggies prepared this way.

Fifth: the kids eat around twice as much prepared this way vs. otherwise.

Sixth: yum!

Seventh: although one needs two rigs to really cook both protein and verge simultaneously, the probability of spousal approval approaches zero.

What to do with an old Zip disc cartridge?

Why, turn it into a Kinect holder, of course.  Two strips of double sided adhesive Velcro and a Zip disc case, and voila!  A perfect fit.
