After trying raw oysters last week at a restaurant, I decided to get some to eat at home. I went to the Whalesbone Sustainable Oyster & Fish Supply where I got some oysters, horseradish, an oyster knife and some lessons on how to use it. I managed to shuck 6 oysters at home without hurting myself! They were yummy.
I’m still eating dairy-free. Most days have been nut-free as well. I’m not doing so great coming up with snack ideas other than eating lots of fruit. I might try to get back into making some coconut flour treats this week. The last batch of coconut flour pancakes I made only lasted about 2 days so I think muffins might be a better one to try. I’ll give a full update on the dairy-free situation later today.
I keep forgetting to show one of my favorite kitchen tools. I got this from my grandparents and we have used it every time we make homemade burgers. It’s just a simple burger press that can do a thin burger or full thick burger. You push a little disc into the side you want (thin or thick) and then pack it full of ground meat. Pop the disc + patty out by pushing on the backside of it and you get a perfectly shaped burger. I have seen electric burger makers or fancy things that make 8 at once, but I think this is easier to clean and works well.
Online Meat & Seafood e-Course
The cooking e-course I’m taking starts this week! I’m excited and have planned out a bit of time each week to be able to keep up with it. I’ll take pictures of everything I make while the course is going on. If you want to take it, Ann Marie has extended the enrollment until this Saturday, August 21. Click here to sign up!
What brand of hamburger press is it, and where can you purchase it from?
@Chrissy I’m not sure what brand it is. I haven’t seen these in stores, but a specialty kitchen store or even a second hand shop would be a good place to look.
