    Steamed artichokes and my idiot proof hollandaise as a starter. I melt 50g butter, the juice of half to a whole lemon lemon and a dash of green tabasco in a large glass or ceramic bowl in the microwave. Put bowl over a small sauce pan au bain marie and whisk in an egg yolk until you reach the desired consitency. If it gets too thick add a few drops of water. Season to taste. The reason for using a large bowl is the fiddliness of pouring hollandaise into serving dishes when you need oven mits to handle the hot bowl.

    I got a sous vide stick for my birthday so experimenting with that today. Topside roast is in the sous vide. Will finish parboiled roast potatoes in the air fryer and finish sous vide carrots under the basket of the air fryer. Will sear the roast later either on the stove or in the air fryer on top of the potatoes.

    Was a little confused looking up topside sous vide recipes online, medium rare. Temperature varied from 52C to 59C and time from 2.5 hours to 24 hours. I am going for 6 hours at 52C. Maybe I should go for searing in the air fryer because I chose the lowest temperature of recipes online.

    Tonight I made whole wheat piadelle (wraps) with swiss cheese, iceberg lettuce and bresaola (salted lean beef) or turkey breast. I heat the wraps up flat alone in a non-stick frying pan, when toasted on one side, flip over and put on the cheese, meat and then the lettuce, fold in half, toast one side and then flip and toast the other. Nice and crispy, cheese is melting.......

    Moussaka. Never made it before and I’m tempted to log the time it took to prepare it because I was on my feet for an hour and change. And I’m already trying to think of ways to make it better because it had a metric ton of oil that seemed completely unnecessary.

    LAST EVENING: dinner for family/2 nights, Italian style: baked (not fried) chicken parm, pasta/sauce, steamed peas and side salad. Boneless/skinless breasts, thin-cut at home.

    TODAY: rainy, cool, January day - fresh loaf of bread. Whole wheat with whey - lower salt, lower cal, lower gylcemic index, more protein than comparable commercial breads and no long list of ingredients. Makes for a great-smelling kitchen. My experience with whey-augmented breads (3 scoops in this loaf) is that they brown more than flour-only loaves, giving a toasty top crust.

    No appetite because the antibiotics prescribed for my bronchitis made me vomit earlier today. Not sure if you should take another dose if you vomit 30 minutes after taking antibiotics. Rosti and roast courgette mixed jarred artichoke bits. Last night's leftover onion gravy.

    Last night --cream of potato and celery soup with freshly grated PR on top. Chicken thighs browned in a non stick kettle--no added oil (leftover bones and skin were simmered later for chicken broth). Tuna salad on toasted crusts of bread.

    Breaded and baked chicken breast, topped with a little marinara and shredded mozz cheese (a lazy chicken parm I suppose) with a side of spaghetti with marinara for my husband and daughter, for myself I made green beans in the air fryer.
