5 Warning signs you need a new Sous Vide Machine

The other day I had invited a few of my neighbor over for a high tea:

I served them my trademark strawberry cake along with homemade cookies and tea. They were head over heels over my cake and I must say I was quite flattered by all those compliments coming my way.

I told them that I was a baker by profession once and that this was only a couple of my specialties. They were so curious to know what else was and I promised them that over the next year I would frequently be baking and sharing some of my goodies and if they were interested also share the recipes with them.

Now, I had also invested in sous vide machine and that lay open in the kitchen waiting for me to cook my dinner. So, one of the friends walks in and asks me what exactly the machine was because it resembled like some machine that she saw at a fancy restaurant albeit a much bigger one.

I told her that it was sous vide machine and that it is quite right for her to recall the machine that she saw at the restaurant because they are almost similar except for the size of scale.

The discussion in the group veered to the machine:

I then started explaining to them what the advantages of cooking in this machine are over the other traditional forms of cooking and soon enough a couple of ladies were quick to exclaim that they have been looking for something like this but have been procrastinating their shopping for a bit.

I told them that ever since my papa has tasted meat cooked in my sous vide machine, he has got one of his own too. My dad loves to use his sous vide machine. He is the kind who loves to experiment with his food a bit but if he likes it a certain way that it has to come out consistently like that every time and that is perhaps why he loves his machine too!

The Downside Risk Of Shopping That No One Is Talking About

Enough said about shopping being therapeutic!

If you are one of those who loves to go shopping whether actually or online, you must cut yourself short and think what kind of world you are creating for your children. I am guilty myself because before this one incident that shook me up completely and brought me back to my senses, I always –always thought that the best thing to have happened to people after the internet was e-commerce.

I was totally astounded by the benefits of E-commerce and being able to sit in your own living room and ordering things that are a few hundred kilometers away and getting them delivered to your doorstep. I mean it makes so much sense in today’s world where distances have shrunk!

How wrong I was!

The fact that I was doing it in front of my children was like giving them a time bomb each. As a parent, you look forward to bringing up productive children who would be independent and do their things by themselves, right?

But the message I was clearly passing to my teens was that look, it is so easy to be lazy and to order just about anything via the internet and then what comes at your doorstep is something you quite imagined it to be and you were lucky if it turned out to be as you imagined o even better than that!

But hey! Look what one of them did:

So, one day when I was at lillysplace, one of them took on to my phone and accessed the shopping website and ordered the most atrocious stuff that he could and even deferred payment through my card. The stuff came in only when I was returning from work three days later and he wasn’t there home yet. Now it made sense why he kept asking me if the mailman had come in yet!!
