Oh your steak looks so good. So does your watermelon salad.
Can sous vide cooking make meat medium? I'm just curious.

Good use for hosta flowers. I like hostas for the leaves, don't like when they flower.

It's all so very beautiful. Delicious looking, as always.

Like Jasdip, I don't like hosta flowers. Does anyone know if you could, without hurting the leafy plant, cut off the straggly flowers? I love the leaves and dislike the flowers.

There's no reason to leave them if you don't like those tall flower stalks, lots of us think they distract from the leaves - the reason we grow them. Removing the flower stems won't affect the leaves one way or the other.

I hadn't thought about cooking and serving them.

Beautiful meal photos!!

Yum, the beets and cauliflower look good. funny, the only way I like cauliflower is roasted and in that salad with broccoli, raisins and bacon.

I love beets nearly any way I can get them, though.

Thank you everyone for your nice comments.

Hosta flower buds are very tender and delicious. The flower itself does not have much taste, just for looks.

Cauliflower grilled, as you know, really delicious.

I am having fun with cutting beets as thin as paper using a single-bevel knife. Much thinner than a mandolin can slice.

Jasdip, sous vide can cook meat from raw to very well done, and anywhere in between, without fail, precisely every time. That's the whole idea. You just set the temperature and walk away. Timing is not that critical. There is no skill involved.
