This is a highly interesting (german language) video about the function of the torque converter that drives every car with an automatic transmission. I didn’t know that before and learned a lot!
Finally, I too can post an image of the countryside where I am right now.
Yesterday I made smoked sea salt. I saw a dude on the interwebz using some on a flank steak these days and it looked delicious. So I wanted to try it too.
Made these little creeps yesterday for dinner. They’re absolutely easy to make but are very flavorful and yummy.
Gnocchi for two (about 200g each)
8-10 leaves of sage, coarsely cut
125 g butter
1 small shallot, finely diced
1 clove garlic, finely diced
Salt and pepper
Grated parmesan cheese
Just wanted to tell the world I’m married for 48 hrs now and still happy with it! 🙂
Some images from my windowsill these days. I’m trying to grow some herbs for the kitchen from seeds. Most of it works out rather well. It’s only the Rosemary that is is a little peaky and doesn’t really seem to like growing very much. The Tomatoes were planted (from plain supermarket-tomato-slices) only about a week ago and I’m pretty satisfied with the progress. Those Chilies grow like hell and I’ll have to germinate the blossoms with a soft brush these days when I have the time and ease to do it.
My first try on the dutch oven other than for baking bread yesterday, together with some friends. Turns out, it’s an absolutely great tool, easy to use, minimum effort required and surprisingly convenient. I made five rubbed chicken legs with some potatoes, onions and a load of garlic, added pepper, herbs and a little beer and broth. Then just let it sit undisturbed for 1 1/2 hours and they came out juicy, tender and flavourful. Success!
BTW, I ended up not caring about calculating coal numbers, because – surprise! – they’re friggin’ hot and difficult to handle without tongs. I just put the determined amount underneath and then didn’t feel like bothering anymore so I just poured the rest from the chimney on top. Still worked beautifully.
