It was either spend 💲9 on 4 boneless skinless 🐔  breast, or spend 💲11 on two whole 🐔🐔 that yielded 4 breasts, 4 thighs, 4 drum sticks and 8 wings. Plus I get to keep the carcass so I can make some 💣💥 stock. #nobrainer #joelbutchers .

Stepping up my #macaron game. Pistachio buttercream! #💣 #france 
To make buttercream:
-Combine 150g sugar and 35g water and bring to 118°C to make simple syrup
-Mix one egg and one yolk in a stand mixer with whisk attachment while syrup is heating up.
-When simple syrup is ready, slow mixer down, slowly pour into eggs and return to high speed. Mix until lukewarm. - In a separate bowl, whisk 240g unsalted butter until creamy and light (3-6 min by hand). Combine in mixer with your psuedo meringue. - Add pistachio paste to flavor. (I got mine in France at a specialty store and it's really concentrated. Just mix whatever tastes right)
- Enjoy

💣💯🤓 Found a French kitchen supply store that has been in business in the same store front since 1820! E. Dehillerin. My new #favorite store. Do I need one rolling pin, or two? #decisions .
