When I learned to spatchcock a turkey, suddenly surprised by more guests announcing they were showing up at our house, I was very pleased. It literally takes the extra effort away from the kitchen and onto being human and a good host.

I hadn't tried it with a chicken though, although I've halved a chicken to bbq. That's my next project, both on the pit and secondly try it in the convection oven.

Thanks.

We also try to make big dinners Sundays, then have leftovers during the week. Last night hubby made spatchcock roast chicken it turned out great with lots of leftovers emoticon

Hubby is great with making stir fries. Iím busy making soups & chilies now. Freeze in 1 or 2 person portions.

I'm trying to do eggs in different ways than usual, and ended up dropping two large raw scrambled eggs into the vortex of swirling boiled water. Next time I'll be doing more, and this time into rapidly boiling water.

The texture was just fine for making egg-salad open-face sandwiches, and much quicker as I used my induction burner and the microwave to get 4 cups of water quickly hot. Next time I will drain them on a microfiber towel prior to using. They like to weep water a little bit.

The vortex boiling water technique actually comes from poaching an egg, and that makes more sense. Oh well, no one has ever accused me of having sense, except for my son hoping for change in my pocket. hahaha

Wow, a blast from the past in the topic threads here starting in 2007. Here is a repost of the idea of quick stir-fry for healthy eating: (I amended it only for clarity purposes structurally)

--Stir frys are quick meals for one or two. You can make as much or as little as you like.
--Cut up meat, poultry or seafood into thin strips and saute in some olive oil.
--Add fresh or frozen colored peppers, onions, mushrooms, celery and a little garlic.
--When everything is tender crisp, add some broth or bouillon and some soy sauce.
--Thicken with a little cornstarch dissolved in a Tbs or two of water.
--Serve over rice and your done!

I get the the frozen stir fry veggies and use just what I want out of the pkg. Or use whatever leftover veggies are in the fridge. Thinly sliced carrots are yummy and green beans are good too. If you use quick cooking rice, the whole thing can be done in 15 or 20 minutes.

Those two sound good. I'm terribly picky about what vegetables I eat, but the stir fry is something I can decide what to put in.

Have you checked out Rachael Ray's 30 min. meals online? Also you can do your cooking on the weekend and put your meals in the freezer and heat them up after work.
