We had our first semi-failure in R2-D2: a toasted sammich. The top bread pieces flew off, and the bread and contents dried out before any browning occurred. Foreman or stovetop for sams from now on. :oops:

Plate of horrible commercial food we had to resort to when we discovered the cornish hen was still frozen:

Image

Cornish hen that took waaaayy longer than we thought and had to be put back twice:

PS: we bought another new toy...hope to have pics before too long.

The corn was gooood.

Learned hideous commercial frozen food is just that. And that hen should be split before cooking. And that SB TX Pecan RULEZ for bird.

I'd like to see that. We've read of people putting these hens on a can of V-8, or pineapple juice the same size. :dont:

They don't make beer that small. :laughing7:

Granted, HOWEVER, since SIZE MATTERS in this case, one could sacrifice the contents and replace with "da brew of choice" :tup: now all that would remain would be to keep them standing straight up during the cook :scratch: -- -I'm gonna do it ?OR? at least I'm gonna try and fab something :dont:

Now we tried the little round insert pan to bake brownies.

Image

Although we'll probably do most of our baking in the regular oven, and still have some bone-in white meat tweaking to do (thick part should get slashed and breast should be started skin-down), this little appliance has been fun so far.

We're not done testing yet! What about wangs? :laughing7:

It goes on and on. R2D2 makes dinner!

Here's the vejable medley (carrot, baby zuke, red peppa from the garden, beans from the garden, garlic, ginger, lemon pepper). This is the only thing done on the stovetop.

Image

Now, the spring rolls. From a store, frozen. They were the appetizer. I made a sweet/sour dipping sauce for those.

Image

Main course was frozen salmon from the store, in two different flavors. And it was ON SALE!

"But wait," you're saying, "That doesn't look like salmon at all! That looks like shrimp!"

Because it is. We'd just pulled the salmon from the freezer. Its label had a big American flag. And caught-in-USA.

But then PB saw, where you wouldn't notice at first, 'Processed in China.'

Back in the freezer. Shrimp snatched out. Also did a half-nuked baked tator with pepper cream dressing.

Image

The potato and vejables were good, at least. Shrimp, not bad. I feel like a dope for not taking a magnifying glass to the salmon label. :dont:

I got it. Get your welding crew to fabricate a couple/three stainless pedestals on a stainless base (maybe with louvers in it) that would fit in this:

Wife bought one of these, it worked pretty good at roasting and searing for about a year until the heating element went democratic on me.
