Hmmm…food coma

Nov 25th, 2011 // In: Posts // By: // Comments 0

We had lots of food today. We still have lots of food. Tomorrow I’m making dinner number two. Then I might not have to cook anything for a week. We can live off leftovers. Tomorrow is a butternut squash crab bisque, turkey vegetable chowder and the nutty mixed up salad. And apparently lots of pie. […]

The kids are home today due to snow cancellations. I’m sending them off into their playroom with various tasks so I can try to get some work done. This morning I threatened them both with a birthday cake substitution of broccoli pie if they didn’t leave me alone and let me sleep, so now the […]

Recipe: Curried Ground Turkey

This isn’t my recipe, so I’m just going to link to it. This will go into my regular rotation. Curried Ground Turkey With Potatoes. My differences: coconut oil instead of vegetable oil, sweet potato instead of yukon gold, and at the advice of Lydia, way more volume of spices than listed. I added some curry […]

Recipe: Pork Rib Soup

I made this using the hogao. It is the reason I made the hogao. The original recipe uses yellow maize, which I’m leaving out. However, if you want to use it or corn, then 15oz will do. 2 lbs. pork ribs 8 cups water Salt and pepper 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1 teaspoon sazon goya […]

Recipe: Hogao

Aug 13th, 2010 // In: Posts // By: // Comments 1

This, to me, falls more into the category of a condiment. It’s like a mix between pico de gallo and salsa, but not quite. I made it to put into a soup, but had extra that I stored in the fridge for other uses. I found the absolute best use for it. Eggs. I don’t […]

Food, Glorious Food!

I complained about my dwelling vegetables. And it was true. One of my produce storage bins held only a partially used head of garlic and the other had a small piece of ginger root. They are usually full, with spill over on the shelf above. But I had food. I mean, I recently bought a […]

Close your eyes, non-sugar people. This one isn’t for you. First, this note: I have to go to get groceries today, and I hope that it isn’t the last time that I get to buy Iwig milk. I’d hate to go to Kansas City for milk. This is another one without a recipe, except for […]

Recipe: Chopped Salad

Jul 21st, 2010 // In: Posts // By: // Comments 2

I’m not a fan of iceberg lettuce, unless it comes with some Ameri-Mexican dish. And even then, it is rare that I desire it. It’s just…boring. Any salad that involves greens is made with well, greens. Even on sandwiches, I prefer green or red leaf lettuce. Then one day while we were out eating, my […]

Recipe: Ada’s Cold Summer Salad

Tonight is leftover fruit & cheese & meat plate night, mainly because we have a lot left over from Mac and Charity’s birthday party and I want to work and not cook and it is over 100 degrees outside which means it is already 81 degrees in my kitchen without adding cooking heat. Ada wanted […]

Salad: Cedar plank salmon, goat cheese, blood orange vinaigrette

Jul 19th, 2010 // In: Posts // By: // Comments 3

This is my favorite green salad. Ever. It also requires a grill, unless you want to forgo the wood smoked taste in the salmon. I also have no experience writing recipes. If it isn’t baking, there is leniency for just adjusting to your tastes. This is approximate For vinaigrette This makes more than I eat […]
