Instapot, crockpot, oven, converter microwave, convection toaster oven, I have more ways to cook bread than ever before but I prefer the way it comes out in the Instapot.

Jean. Yes I Had some frozen one which I usually use. I didn't thaw them and didn't work good.  So today I tried some more. Thawed them out and then put then in and sprayed  with oil. Did better. Will have to practice with fries as I like really crisp ones. Pork chop did good. Will just keep playing around.
Found that I can just bring up YouTube. Type in Cooking with Air Fryer and Hundreds of things come up.  Have a few Forums which are pretty good as they seem to have had them for some time. Something else to play with. Love cooking shows.

Jeanne, after thawing them you need to dry them well on paper towels before spraying with oil. They do get quite crispy then.

We finished the last of our Christmas dinner leftovers yesterday.  With the small amount of turkey I have left I’m going to make some turkey noodle soup.  Today is cold and dreary here in northwest Florida and hot homemade soup sounds good to me.

Angel, that sounds like a good drink before going to bed, as Bubble said.  I’ve been drinking homemade cocoa at night but that takes more sugar, but a tsp of vanilla sounds like too much.  I would try 1/2 tsp first and then add more according to ones taste.

That sounds about right with the vanilla, Jean. I would also possibly add a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Still only 5 deg here all day. Not going out. So cooking away. Trying a couple more things in the Air Fryer . I baked some biscuits. and make 6 Sausage Biscuits for the freezer. Did good but now know to use 350 and not the 400 deg it says. Have to watch as only takes a few min. Also made 4 pints of Chili for the freeze. I have some chicken breast cut up and in fridge. Will fix it soon as a start to Sweet and Sour chicken.  My pans for it are suppose to come here tomorrow. Indoor freezer in good shape again now.

Angel, I tried the hot milk drink tonight.  It did take 1 tsp vanilla and I needed 2 tsp sugar I sprinkled some cinnamon on top.  It was good.

Rosemary Lemon Chicken #Sunday Supper
A Platter Talk Exclusive  Course Dinner
 
Prep Time 15 minutes

Cook Time 45 minutes

Total Time 1 hour

Servings 4

 Author Dan from Platter Talk

Ingredients

1 whole chicken cut into 8 pieces

juice from 2 lemons

zest from 1 lemon

2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 sprigs fresh rosemary stems removed and finely chopped, plus more for garnish

1 cup dry white wine

1/2 cup vegetable oil

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Combine flour, salt and pepper and then divide in two shallow dredging bowls.
In third shallow dredging bowl, combine and stir lemon juice, lemon zest, and rosemary.
Using standard breading procedure, dredge chicken and place on clean tray.

Meanwhile, place oil in large oven safe skillet and heat on medium-high setting.
Place chicken in skillet, a few pieces at a time if necessary to avoid crowding.
Brown each piece evenly, about 3-4 minutes per side. Allow to drain on paper bag.

Discard oil from skillet and return chicken to pan. Add wine to skillet and place in oven.
Allow chicken to finish in the oven, covered, about 45-60 minutes, until juices run clear and internal temperature of chicken is 165 degrees F.

Garnish with additional rosemary, if desired.

Most of the prep can be done ahead of time and if you prefer, the dry white wine can be exchanged for white grape juice.

Sometime back I put in a recipe for “meatloaf for two”.  It was such a hit with my husband I made four, ate one and froze three a couple of weeks ago.  We just aren’t big eaters so one small meatloaf is plenty for our meal with some leftover for a sandwich.  So taking one out of the freezer for our big meal of the day.

Yesterday I cooked French fries for the first time in a couple of years.  I used the light olive oil which I prefer for frying and baking.  They were so good I’m going to cook them again today.  Can’t help myself. :thumbup:

I know what you mean, Jean. A full-size meatloaf was often too much for me, so I used to make one, cut it into four pieces and freeze them. Now I use my muffin pan for mini meat loafs, just divide the recipe into twelve equal parts and freeze.  You can with this method, use individual toppings, different for each mini meatloaf.

 Coincidently, tonight I will be having a thawed out mini meatloaf with rice and squash, all compliments of my freezer. Or I might as I did yesterday, grab a PB&J and plan on saving my scheduled meal for another time this week.

Is PB&J a peanut butter and jelly sandwich?  I’ve been eating them since I was little and I still enjoy them.  Angel, can you eat cooked items that have milk in the ingredients or do you have to use lactose free milk entirely even for cooking?

I use powdered milk in cooking, and it doesn't seem to have the effect that drinking it straight does. I used to always use almond or soy milk for drinking or cold cereal and now those upset me as well. I've upped my calcium pills and drink rice milk. Oddly enough, I can no longer use dried potatoes and since I eat so little, just for myself, that they rot before use. So, I've gone to rice.

Yes, pb&j is peanut butter and jelly altho I use it as a catchall term for different nut butters and toppings. I have trouble with store bought, so I use my blender and make different types of nut butters. Evidently, my body just doesn't do well with chemicals.

Jean. Did you make the Fries from regular potatoes not the frozen ones. I prefer my own.
I am out of most ready made in my freezer and so to day going to do the same thing. Make some small meatloaves . I also got about 4 lbs of chicken legs and thighs yesterday. Going to fry some. then also do some in the crock pot with cream chicken and mushrooms.  With this weather I seem to be eating to much. Think I may have put a few pounds on as not out walking. But it will come off when the weather gets better.
Got caught in a snow blizzard yesterday. had snowed all night and stopped so need to go out to big store out on the State HW. Came out and blizzard had started up. Hardly could see my car. Got there and found left the lights on. Was Dead. Man in truck next to me jumped it. Just took a second as new battery . I am not going out again until this mess is gone.

JeanneP, I always peel and slice fresh potatoes—just like them better.  It sounds like you are enjoying some good food during this cold weather.
