Angels in America

There are a couple of ways to see wings. Maybe more. This is a later shot from the same evening as this one. Yes, the clouds really got that orange.

Affirmation: Breathe. Listen. Love. Have simethicone on hand at all times until January 4th.

Key learnings from my Thanksgiving creamed onions exploration:

  • More salt.
  • Perfect amount of butter.
  • Cream sauce not quite thick enough.
  • Nutmeg: Nicely played.
  • Needed yellow, not white onions (stronger flavor) and needed to cook substantially longer; too crunchy.
  • Booker’s fueled cooking is fine. But the ratio math for recipe tweaking needed to happen before the pour.
  • Panko: nice touch, just back off a bit on the amount and the browning.
  • Roux schmoux.

I know this because I’ve had a couple of leftover servings. I survived, but I needed to record the key learnings. I only make the onions once a year. Maybe I need to change that.
