風雨中的感恩

Tomorrow is Canada's Thanksgiving, but we're having heavy rains and thunderstorms during the day today. I was planning to go out and get something good for dinner, but eventually I had to call it off. So I just opened up the fridge, and get whatever I have to make a dish--using the brown beef stock I made last night (actually early this morning, since I made the soup till 2 a.m. or so).

And eventually I made something that seems to be very simple, but it took me a while to finish it--it's all because of the beet chips and the potatoes chips.

I did a little experiment on whether baking or deep frying is best for the beet chips, and I guess the result is obvious--deep frying keeps the color a lot better than the baked one. Taste wise, they're both better than eating it raw, since the nutty flavor of the raw beet is gone, and it becomes sweeter as well. Of course, baking is preferable if low fat diet is necessary. One thing though, don't cut the beet too thin since a paper-like chip will not retain its shape after deep frying or baking.

As for the potato chips, my chef said that purple potatoes should never ever be used as French fries... since the color will turn into yellowish brown and it'll be like a mess... which I am quite skeptical about that. So I did another experiment... I julienne'd the potatoes and did a double fry--yup, although they are fine julienne I still double fried it to make it crispier... and the result?

I think they look beautiful!

Oh, and I have started a new blog《我們小心養大的》 that has most, if not all, recipes of the dishes I made... hopefully I'll get connected to those who love cooking :)

Thanks my friend for picking the title of the new blog :-)
