My albacore sandwich with ginger mayo, picked onions and avocado. So good!
jwa recently planned a ‘date night’, which was really very sweet of him. We went to dinner at 23 Hoyt and then to voicebox to sing. We even hit the end of happy hour at the restaurant which meant $5 cosmos, $1 salted, roasted almonds and $5 clams in wine, herbs, garlic and butter. SCORE!
I brought a camera…
Voicebox: “Asian pop-inspired environment, accented with awesome manga-style murals by local comic book legends, Arnold and Jacob Pander.”
Songs sung included: West End Girls, Here Comes You Man, some White Stripes, The Pick of Destiny, some Bob Dylan, Because the Night, Billie Jean, Love Cats, some Dr. Dre and the theme from The Golden Girls. It . . . → Read More: Dinner at 23 Hoyt
This was truly an experiment and it was a good one. I generally have mediocre success with poaching eggs and I have never made hollandaise before. But here, everything seemed to turn out pretty well. I think this was mainly due to my sitting down and planning out how to make all this so everything was done around the same time. I did some stuff early (the bell peppers and the Canadian bacon) and made sure I mise en placed!!! it all. Ha!
I took my eggs out of the fridge about an hour before using, so they would be room temperature-ish. This may have helped. I also just accepted the fact that my whites might get a little messy. They did. There was still a little yelling. But, mimosas helped take the edge off all the poaching egg related stress (PERS).
The blender hollandaise sauce might be cheating a little but …who cares? I was super pleased with the results. Light and lemony, it was delicious! I made 2/3′s of the original recipe, as there were only two of us. And although I didn’t use it all, I thought that would be easier than only using one egg yolk . . . → Read More: Bell Pepper Eggs Benedict with Amazing Blender Lemony Hollandaise Sauce
