Welcome to Like or Dislike, where you get to share how you really feel about ingredients from the pantry, ingredients I'm thinking about adding to my pantry, other seasonal foods, and favorite cooking gear. The things you like are sure to find their way to the recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, so do tell.
As confident a cook as I am, I don't take chances when it comes to large cuts of meat, chickens, or my Thanksgiving turkey. Before The Downsizing and the move from country to city, I had a lovely thermometer that sits in the meat as it cooks (though I often forgot to insert it at the beginning of the cooking time, and had to make a mid-roast stab), but at the moment, I can't find it. So I'm back to relying on my two easy-to-use instant-read thermometers, one in a white sheath, and one in red. I can stick them into anything, even loaves of bread, any time. It used to be very cool for chefs to carry these in their pockets (where they now probably carry their smart phones). Are you an instant-read thermometer lover?
