    Help with Sous Vide Prime Rib

    There are only two of us for Christmas dinner. The recipe on the Anova site is for a three pound roast. The smallest roast I could find is 4.5 pounds. This calls for 3 pound for 6 hours at 132 F. Should I do 4.5 pounds for 7 hours at 132? Thank you and have a joyous Christmas.

    Ran across this site and thought it was interesting.  The local places get more national media coverage now but have the same problems as restaurants have had for years.  Very few independents remain open after five years.  This may be a new century but making a profit much less a living has not...

    What to leave for Santa?

    What did you leave on the hearth for Santa growing up?  We started with milk and cookies.  When we got a little older we were told Santa would rather have cheese, crackers, and a glass of Jack Daniel's.

    Do you peel your carrots?  Why?  If I am dicing I cut the sides so the carrot is square.  At home I usually leave the skin on.  It really depends on the dish if I peel potatoes.  What about eggplant?  I know this is a little weird but I have some time on my hands.  JiMyra

    I have acquired two Ostrich eggs.  I put them in the refrigerator the day they were laid.  Any ideas on how long they will last?  How should I use them?  Each egg equals twenty four chicken eggs. In the past I have made omelets.
