Whole30 Day 10

I totally broke the rules today and weighed myself at the gym. I've lost 5 pounds! I also went against recommendations (not actual rules) and had a fruit smoothie, which I've been craving.

B: Banger sausage patties with sweet potato mash and caramelized onions (from the Whole30 recipe book).

Though it was really more like burnt onions, and my sausages took forever to bake. It called for 15 minutes, and it took 40! Maybe I do have a problem with my oven? I've never had any issues before though. Anyways, I was not impressed with this recipe. I didn't like the lemon zest in the sausage, and it didn't taste like sausage. Next time I'll just google a paleo sausage recipe.

L: Venison steak, homemade season fries, avocado.

Pre-WO mini-meal: Hardboiled egg

Post-WO mini-meal: Hardboiled egg + sweet potato fries

D: Banger sausage patties with sweet potato mash and caramelized onions. Fruit smoothie (strawberries, half banana, mixed berries, OJ).

It sounds like your oven either isn't coming to temperature or isn't holding temperature. The only way to check is to turn it on with an oven thermometer in it, wait until it should be at temp, then check (through the window, if you can) what the temperature is.

Keep it on for at least an hour, checking every quarter hour, to see if/when it loses focus.

I've never had trouble with it before when cooking. In fact, when I cook my grandma's cinnamon rolls, I have to cook them less than the recipe calls for or else they burn, so I thought if anything it ran a little hot. Never have problems with pizzas, turkeys, or roasting veggies. Meaning they always cook in the time it calls for. I guess I'll need to find an oven thermometer, because I don't have one. (And, sadly, you can't see through my window so I'd have to open it.)
