Move over Bobby Flay....

Move over Bobby Flay....

There's a new chef in town!

Or.... So I'd hoped.... Until I cooked my air fryer manual and cookbook.



Cripe!!

Just when I think I'm starting to improve, I try to burn the house down... Yet Again!!

What's worse?

I couldn't figure out where the smoke was coming from because the food I was cooking wasn't burning. I had somehow managed to layer potato wedges, olive oil, tinfoil, and manuals in the pan that I'd popped into the toaster over to cook for twenty minutes.

That takes talent!

It finally hit me that I didn't see the booklets on the counter and realized I hadn't taken them out of the pan before I put the tinfoil and taters on there.... So I was cooking them too.

Ugh...

I could use a private tutor for culinary instruction. Any professional chef's out there who would like to take on this challenge?

It could be your biggest challenge yet!

Happy Tuesday!

    It happens to the best of us.. oh well, hopefully if the books are well done you can find them posted online on the manufacturers site
    Smokey Bear would be proud..... (ahem)

Considering I didn't start a forest fire, yes he would! I haven't tried looking for the books yet, but I'm sure I should be able to find them if I need to. I'll stick to electronic, though, and just download a copy. Don't want to recreate this debacle.

    They say as we grow older, we should be adding more fiber to our meals...

    ...you are a Chef...with instinctive skills and knowledge!
I think I prefer my fiber to come in the form of a Triscuit. LOL

    Simple solution either marry a chef or go online and look for a manual or write the company and ask for a new one.
Looks like I'll be writing the company. LOL It's been a challenge to just find someone to date me. In a world of people who just want to 'hook up', finding someone to marry you is impossible.

    I don't know if you need a professional chef. Maybe just an extra set of eyes to back you up.
That would be fantastic. I had cut up the potato wedges and oiled/seasoned them on the other counter, then transported them on the tinfoil to the pan. I was watching the wedges to make sure they stayed upright and didn't even look at the pan. Yikes...

    I'd offer to provide guidance, but you'd have to speak in the affect of Julia Child.
I'm fairly certain I can't pull off her accent.... LOL Looks like I'm doomed to make my way through life, one cooking hazzard to the next. Ha ha ha ha

I have a file with that stuff in it, but this was handier to have with the toaster oven. I still haven't used it enough to learn by heart the steps to do the air frying or toasting so I need the manual. Same with the little cookbook that came with it. It has times and temperatures for cooking things, I've used that a ton.

    And I thought I had done every thing that could be done in the kitchen.. What was the seasoning for the manual? after a while you will settle down in your new abode.. a thought is for you to be sure you have a fire extinguisher, a t hand all the time.

    All and all a good one, have a better evening..
In a million years, I never expected this. I shouldn't have just kept that stuff in the toaster oven, anyway, it was just really convenient. When I wanted to air fry something, I had the manual right there with all the times and different recipes... for things like POTATO WEDGES. LOL
