Been into baking lately. Tonight we had tacos with homemade flour tortillas. They tasted great.

Also been experimenting with homemade pita bread. Itís way easier than I thought it would be and it is crazy satisfying to watch them puff up in the oven.

A week or two ago we were all missing home so I was looking for some type of iconic American food to make for diner, thinking maybe it would help.

I found a recipe that said it was just like Pizza Hut pan pizza, something we never actually eat, but thought it fit the bill nicely. The dough had to rise in the fridge for a full twenty-four hours, so it took a little planning, but I got there. The result? Well it looked right and it tasted just like I remembered it tasting, and sometime in that first bit I remembered why itís been so long since weíve had it.

I think having a cast iron pan wouldíve helped a little, but it was really close to the original.

It was a fun adventure either way, and I think at least the kids enjoyed it a bit. Also let us mix up pizza night a bit.

Local Whole Woods was clearancing out San Marzano tomatoes (normally 6$ a can, down to 2$, woo  ;D).

Now I just need to decide what to make with them. Trying to decide if I'm in a Chicken Parmesan mood, or a Spaghetti and Meatballs mood...

For about the last ... 5 or 6 years?

We're not completely vegetarian. I'll eat some hunted meat once in a while (like maybe once or twice a year we'll end up with some deer, goose, or squirrel) and ethically caught fish, but I don't buy store-bought meat and basically never order a meat dish in a restaurant.

Distraction and more distraction, gotta eat... looking for something to do my daughter decided to try making bagels yesterday. 'Everything' bagels in production, today's lunch with mortadella... She did great, a natural!

Very very cool. She did well indeed. I have not made those yet. I love to bake, most recently I bought myself a bread maker. Been fun so far.

The farm family i buy most of my local stuff from at the market has had a stand going back into the 1800's but under the current circumstances and for the time being aren't set up at the market. Last week they started a one size fits all 'local veggie box' delivery service. Tonight from my box a butternut squash, onions, carrots and jalapenos for a curried squash soup.

Turns out there was no chicken stock in the freezer but there was a container of milk that had been infused with celeriac... why not?

No half and half cream on hand but a tub of sour cream and a bag of milk, yes our milk is sold in bags going back decades... diy half and half...

Also used ginger, curry powder, yellow curry paste, topped with the jalapeno, cilantro, Aleppo pepper and more sour cream... happy taste buds even if i'm no fan of squash!













Stay well, finish your soup or you won't get dessert, the end of last summer's wild blueberries...

Tuesday night quickie, the other half of the flank steak, 15 minute marinate in yellow miso, Maggi, sambal oelek, toasted sesame oil, ginger, garlic, sugar, few minutes per side in a pretty hot pan, basmati and steamed edamame & corn. A couple teaspoons of the marinate were set aside before marinating the steak, mixed with rice vinegar and oil to drizzle over the cooked steak. Backyard chives, all we have so far and we've been having snow flurries all day.




Take care all!

Vegetarian fire noodles!

First we make some knife-cut noodles. They're often alkaline noodles, but it turns out that it's best to bake the baking soda ahead of time to raise the PH. The dough was super hard to work with and I didn't even attempt to roll them out with a rolling pin (I used my hand-cranked pasta maker, though).


Nevertheless they did turn a little bit yellow during cooking.


Toppings: minced and crispy-fried mushrooms in place of the more traditional pork, scallions, sichuan peppercorns, peanuts, sesame seeds, chili oil, chili crisp (the dark red stuff in the middle), and a little bit of soy sauce and black vinegar.


Like basically everything involving homemade chili oil, I would probably eat this continuously until I physically explode, so it's probably a good thing that it was sort of labor intensive for a "fast" meal.
