Sesame Coated Turkey Pieces With Cabbage

 Having had Turkey Piccata for lunch yesterday there were some pieces of uncooked turkey leftover for today.  Sometime I act like a pregnant woman who has to have something to eat or else the baby will come out with a birth mark similar to what she wanted to eat!! So I felt like eating turkey coated with roasted sesame....

Bain Marie (Pyrex Bowl With Lid)
Karahi For Indian Cooking
Good morning my friends! Hope you have a nice week end ...we are well into autumn and the weather is getting cooler by the day. I prefer the cold since I tend to have more ideas on cooking cold weather foods as opposed to summer, Boy I tell you!! I really had a problem this past summer trying to find light meals and salads because I like none of them. I love calories!! Greasy food!! Fat!! You would say Yech!! but in the 7 billion people around this globe there must be other people like me!! Not that I am looking down upon you guys, my friends and relatives but that's me and that is why I like gives me an opportunity to express my feelings, my likes, dislikes. It relaxes me. God only know how much relaxation I need...... I just would like to share with you, how so very important it is to have the right equipment. There still are a few other things I need but slowly I'll get there.  People say"The first 100 years in one's life are the most difficult". The only thing I don't have and I do not think I will ever have, is a large enough kitchen similar to a blogger friend who writes about "Le Memorie Di Angelina". Frank, the publisher, is a lawyer by day and a cook by night. He just moved in his new home and into one heck of a kitchen which he exposed in one of his posts....

Breast Of Turkey Piccata With Dill And A Hot Beet Salad.

Sometimes a plain beetroot salad works just fine with certain foods.  The hot and sweet beets come to equalize the salty capers all being engulfed by the acidity of the lemon.  Serving a pounded thin slice of breast of turkey topped with a wine, dill, caper, butter sauce is exquisite....and all served over baby penne rigate which have soaked in the general taste of everything!!... Wow!!

The Pressure Cooker...Based On Laws Of Physics.

Denis Papin
The First Pressure Cooker
"Denis Papin (22 August 1647 - c. 1712) was a French-born physicist, mathematician and inventor, best known for his pioneering invention of the steam digester, the forerunner of the steam engine and of the pressure cooker.
Papin invented the pressure cooker in 1679, but it took another 200 years to become a kitchen appliance.

A pressure cooker is an airtight cooking vessel that uses basic physical principles to cook food in a fraction of the ordinary time. Pressure cookers use the fact that water can be heated well above its normal boiling point if it's in a sealed container that keeps steam inside and allows steam pressure to build beyond normal atmospheric pressure. Pressure cookers consist of a base, interior steaming rack, locking lid, vent tube and pressure regulator.

The increased pressure inside the pot delays the water and/or other liquids inside the pot from boiling until it reaches a much higher temperature. As a result, the cooking process is sped up considerably. A pressure cooker works by building up pressure from steam in the pot, which cooks food at a very high temperature. This method can cut cooking time by up to two-thirds, and will also retain the nutritional value and moisture of foods."All the above was copies verbatim from e-How on Google....
