After a 2 week hiatus due to scheduling conflicts, I'm back to cooking for people coming over for study circle. I decided to go with turkey burgers tonight, they are fairly inexpensive and easy to make, and after making baps this weekend, I really want to try and make hamburger buns. The trick appears to be making a disc of dough about 4-5 inches across and maybe an inch thick, letting it proof about 30 minutes and then baking. It allows for enough rise so the texture is right but not so much that you lose the hamburger bun shape. We'll see if my plan works out, if not there are backup buns present. I took the easy way out and got a bag of frozen fries for a side. Crinkle cut fries have a rather small amount of fat especially compared to other frozen fries. Recently I learned a new way to prep potatoes, you peel and cut them into wedges, toss with olive oil, season salt and pepper to coat, then bake on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, turning halfway through baking. I want to play with the recipe a bit more in the future, but we had it twice over the weekend, enough for a new recipe.
Today's goal is a combination of food prep and house cleaning for tonight. We had crab legs last night, so the trash definitely gets taken out soon. I almost forgot what seafood trash smells like the next day.
