Last night was Cobb salad, tonight I’m making a pot of split pea soup.
Just finished the remains of a peanut butter and honey sandwich I found between the cushions of my neighbor's couch. Washed it down with an almost full can of a V8 energy drink I stumbled across in the roadside ditch on my way home.
Beef dip on homemade French bread with ceasar salad
"Beef dip on homemade French bread with caesar salad"
Lurrv homemade baguettes. (the secret; a moist oven. A tray of ice cubes on a separate baking dish works well)
I have plenty of bread flour , but the yeast I have is over a year old. . Found a clip on Youtube showing how to make a sourdough plant using honey .
Instead of bread, of which I have plenty. I'm thinking of getting some rice flour and making some Chinese dumplings, with prawns./shrimp. I will of course test the yeast on the off chance.
To be honest, I'm not all that into rustic. I'm more an under the stars kind of a bloke. Five stars that is.
Went out and bought a hot air fryer. I've been wanting one. So what did I have??? Chicken fried mushrooms with a side of strawberries and yogurt. I used King Trumpet mushrooms, cleaned and then dipped in a chicken seasoned flour mix, to give a light coating of flour. Next, they were dipped into an egg, salt and pepper mixture and then back into the chicken coating mix. (The outside must be somewhat dry before going into the fryer so the mushrooms don't stick to one another. ) Roll, dip and roll again is just the way I do it. I ate four of them. Yummy!
The lockdown has brought me a desire to eat meat, drink bourbon and smoke.
Last night it was grilled lamb chops, Jack Daniels Apple and a pipe of Clan aromatic tobacco.
Beef brisket for dinner, it's had a little over 2.5 hours so far, so past the halfway pint. yum yum...
Planning stroganoff tonight with homemade egg noodles.
"Planning stroganoff tonight with homemade egg noodles."
I love beef stroganoff, and have a pasta maker. Can't get pasta flour because of all the cretins panic buying .I only want a kg.
So last night was an Aldi's frozen meal, called with considerable poet licence " Chicken Parmigiana". I guess it tastes marginally better than eating the box in which it came.
Dessert was an apple something with pastry and custard with coconut . Like using Granny Smiths because they're tart.
Tonight; probably some pumpkin soup I've got frozen with bread and real butte, . Perhaps also a baked apple with Yogurt.
Thinking of trying a method to make a sourdough plant I saw on Youtube. It uses honey. plain flour and water . I havehoney and a kg of bread flour still in its sealed bag.
Cranky.... mmmmmm (drooling). re: probably some pumpkin soup I've got frozen with bread and real butte,
Was rummaging around in an abandoned barn down the street and managed to find an old feed-bag half full of some soggy oats covered by a thin layer of fuzzy mold. Toted it home and threw them in a pot on the stove to warm them up. Went outside and scooped a mug of muddy water from a rut in my driveway. Took it inside and stuck it in the microwave for a few seconds, then added a few drops of sour milk I had been saving for a special occasion. I like my oats sweet, so once they were warm I took the half-eaten lollipop I found last week and stirred it around in them a couple of times. Ahhh... Breakfast... The most important meal of the day...
We just had juicy rare sirloins with oven chips and a nice red wine.
I always wait for my wife to say "mmm" and she did.
PS - I think it is the hot cast iron skillet that does the trick.
Pond scum, frog water, and a glass of sand, well ... when I say a glass, it's really just an empty peanut butter jar that I found along side the road, but you tell that to the kids of the world today and they won't believe you.
Oh! So YOU are the filthy culprit who has been swindling all my pond scum! Ain't that just great?... *throwing hands up in exasperation*... Now I owe my wife an apology because I have been accusing her of sneaking out late at night and snacking on it. But if you let me know the source of your frog water I might just forgive you.
On the stovetop, I'm making a skillet of turkey sausage with onions, peppers, tomatoes, garlic, and rice.
In the oven, I'm baking a batch of chicken.
I'm doing both because my mother-in-law and I like the rice and onions dish. My partner refuses to eat anything with rice or onions. I have to cook a lot to keep peace in the family.
Living in the jungle is hard. It's been bananas for a week now. I am still looking for a good bush to nibble on.
Cog, cog, ....cog, oh COG
Re: . I am still looking for a good bush to nibble on.
Last nigh chicken korma, with some extra chilli powder. For starch I again used the dried Korean ribbon noodles. They just need a bit of soaking first----------- the panic buyers have missed the Chinese grocery; it has stacks of rice, rice flour and many kinds of noodles.
That squirrel trap I worked on for so long, just outside the side window, on the fence, finally paid off. Oh thank you oh god of clear fishing line. I heard some chattering and thumping on the side of the house, and rushed in anticipation to the side window, to see the old grey, beaten by ingenuity and hunger, flailing to get free of his inevitable end of days foot noose that has so elegantly hung his demise out for all to see and hear...I was filled with pride and promise of a good meal...how should I cook my worthy adversary, I thought...an open fire, or one crispy blow torched limb at a time, dipped in the one remaining bottle of a1 sauce maybe? My head was spinning. I rushed outside, and swung gandolf hard, against the fence...knocking him into a stunned twitch of unconsciousness...the swiftness of my movements only matched by my undying primal hunger fueled by my genetic need for survival. I stopped abruptly, standing between the brilliant whiteness of the fence, and the blood redness of the weathered unyielding permanency of the brick wall of my house, starring down at the complexity and simplicity of the wonderful creature laying in my hands. A wave of remorse for my actions washed over me, as a tear of acknowledgement of a fellow living creature, that twitched a dance to the brutality of its demise...I cried...then sunk my teeth into its midriff. I devoured its still live body with the ferocity needed to crush and swallow its small but life giving skeletal structure. Fuck the a1 sauce, the voice in my head repeated...fuck the a1 sauce. I walked back into the house, pulling the fishing line from my teeth, thinking...what am I going to have tomorrow?

Am thinking of Gallah, as there is a good sized flock nearby. I'll get him with my souvenir boomerang.**
After dressing the bird, I shall plonk him into a large pot of boiling water, then add a large rock. After vigorously boiling for 5 hours (replacing the water as needed) I shall remove and discard the bird and eat rock withChilli sauce. .
**as it turns out, I do I actually know how to throw a boomerang; concave curve facing out.
Ahhh tonight wifie is sinking her teeth into Chicken Korma whilst I am having a lamb dish with Cumin and a host of other spices with Saffron Rice, Garlic Naan and patratha....two breads I know but hey...going a little crazy in this lockdown....
@doG: Sheeesh! All that trouble for a damn squirrel! I get a brown paper bag and just walk across the street to the local pet shop. They think I have a pet snake and so they give me hamsters and mice for just fifty cents each.
I just turn on the deep fat fryer, walk to the pet shop, and when I come home the oil is ready. Dump the little critters into the oil, answer a few posts on AR, and the little varmints are ready for snacking. A little side of ketchup with a splash of Tabasco and it's just like eating fried pork rinds with soft chewy centers. YUM! No work, no fuss, and no fishing line between my teeth.
I generally avoid pork, because I've known pigs smarter than some of my relatives.
But my mother-in-law brought home a lovely pork roast. She'd slipped her leash when one of her church lady friends dared her to go to the grocery store together.
So, I'm putting it in the crock pot with potatoes, carrots, peas and gravy. I meant to get cauliflower, but I forgot.
I was lucky enough to get ahold of a couple of cases of gorgeous roma tomatoes so canned a dozen pints of marinara sauce. (I do a lot of canning.) Thinking of making chicken parm or spaghetti tonight.
The grocery store was nearly giving away some really fun stuff.
I'm making a huge fruit salad of guava, strawberry, kiwi, and grapes.
Bargains are great.
Yair, I love bargains too. That's why I patronise five supermarkets.
I really miss the tastings at Cosco, and the hot dogs and the Muffins and the chocolate biscuits in the nice red tin and the pork How Gar and that's about it.--their wholesale groceries were seldom as cheap as I could get them on special .There was a local discount petrol station with cheaper petrol.
Have just been to the fruiterer, so have a fridge full of fresh vegetables. Vegetarian a curry tonight I think.
I’m taking a break - boys are making spaghetti and meat sauce tonight.
A Quizno opened on the street level of the apartment I live in. I had an Italian sub with iced tea and mandu. That sub was the best tasting thing I have had in 20 years. Just like home. I opened the wrapper, took the first bite and suddenly it was gone. I could have eaten 3 of them. I will be returning to the big Q!
I love that feeling. It happened to me with coffee the other day...magical.
