Did the fries--I don't have pics--couldn't wait to eat them! I also don't remember who recommended frying them for about 7-10 minutes? at 160, draining them, and then finishing them at 180. Don't know if it was the potatoes (fresh dug) or the technique, but crispy, not greasy, best fries I've ever eaten (or made) absolutely lovely if you like crisp fries. Wish I'd had some cheese curds--they would've been perfect fries for poutine (and, I have turkey gravy in the freezer just for that--poutine). Maybe next time.

I have some potatoes left that were done at 160 that I've chunked to make into hash for breakfast with a couple of greek-style sausages I pulled out of the freezer. We'll see how that flies.

I think I'll splurge on $0.75 for a second topping and get double mushroom.
I'm about to move and I'm not cooking a thing for the next couple days probably.
Double mushroom, double cheese is the best pizza on the face of this earth! You have to have the double cheese as well, though!

I made Steak Diane and sauté potatoes, using Gordon Ramsey's instructions/recipe.



It was good, but I need to perfect my technique.

Thanks Harry.

Stirling's steak was undercooked, he likes it well done. There was too much Worcestershire flavour. The potatoes were undercooked and the garlic on the potatoes was overcooked, even though I added them much later than the instructions in the video. And to add another lovely note, the vinaigrette was too vinegary. I guess it was one of them days. I make vinaigrette all the time and it's usually perfect.

so you got to eat stirling's steak as well,the potatoes were al dente,you can never have too much "wooster" sauce & the vinaigrette gave you an excuse to drink more......glass is always half full,never half empty.you'll nail it next time.....well done steak tho'? dunno what the answer is to that matey!!
