Where is that yuck button when you really need it???
Actually, it is a family (DW) fav. I never had it until I started dating her. I learned to make it from my MIL. Our kids loved it growing up.

Shrimp Creole was what I made tonight. Quite good if I do say so myself!

Tomorrow we have (2) 1/2 gallon glass jugs of NH maple Syrup being delivered from a sufar house in the north country. They are open and we could have driven up there I guess, but they were offering free delivery for over $59 so what the heck. Hubby uses it a lot for his waffles/french toast/pancakes- me occasionally- and also good to cook with.
I'll bet fresh maple syrup is excellent. We don't have sugar maples out here. :(

I usually buy a cheese and basil spiral sausage but in these times we eat what’s in the fridge or freezer so it was sweet Italian sausage.

You make a light roux with flour and butter. You stir in milk and keep stirring to make a medium thick sauce. This is actually a béchamel sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. You can add a pinch of cayenne pepper to taste.

From here you can add sliced hard boiled eggs and Buddig pressed meat cut into pieces.

Serve over toast or english muffins.

A neighbor here gave me a few packets of yeast she was keeping in her fridge since I have not been able to get any. I will keep it at room temperature for when I know I am ready to bake bread, which should be this weekend.

I just ordered whole wheat bread flour, cornmeal and moose mush hot cereal, oatmeal and bran muffin/raisin mix and spider corn cake mix from Littleton Grist Mill up in the north country. They make it as they get the orders in and I should be getting it tomorrow- super fast.

So this weekend I am going to take out the bread machine and relearn what I used to do years ago. Wish me luck.

I've been stockpiling the stems and bits of unused portion of veggies. Put them in pot this morning with lots of herbs and turmeric. Tonight I added leftover chicken to the strained broth and added in miso, nutritional yeast, collagen, whey protein, sunflower lecithin. Miso soup, YUM!

Have you tried no-knead bread? It make a beautiful rustic loaf.

Regarding bread: now is the time for all good men and women to use those Christmas presents that you thought you might have to re-gift.

We ran out of bread yesterday and don't want to risk a trip to the grocery. We've got some sort of bread mix that we were given as a present (and which we just put aside thinking we'd never use it). Mixed it this morning and the little yeasts are working hard right now.

So check your unused Christmas presents!

The bread machine will make a nice, fine grained loaf.

The no-knead method produces a rustic, country-style loaf:


All you need is a cast iron dutch oven that has a handle on top that will withstand 500° F.

We were going to order our first take out in 10 days. Mouth was all set for a shrimp tray, when suddenly people were posting that our favorite family style Italian restaurant was closing Monday for the foreseeable future. So we picked up spaghetti and meatballs, sausage and peppers, salad and garlic bread instead of going to the fish market restaurant. We couldn't fathom that they wouldn't have enough take out business to warrant staying open (restaurant is split in half with a typical Italian-murals-on-the-wall seating on one side and counter for pizza, sandwich, pasta pickup on the other), so Cliff asked. Turns out they are closing because they are too busy, and being family owned they didn't want to be carrying the virus home.

I was low on flour and yeast and couldn’t find any. So... I had a friend of mine who runs a catering company get me some. Lol 2 pounds of yeast, 25 pounds all purpose flour, and 50 pounds of stone ground whole wheat flour. I’ve distributed 6 ounces of yeast, 18 pounds of all purpose flour and 19 pounds of whole wheat flour to friends.

In the past week, I’ve made 7 loaves of whole wheat sandwich bread and 1 loaf of whole wheat Irish Soda Bread. Yeah I’m getting fat.

can you do that no knead at a sour dough?
If you have a sour yeast culture, I don't see why not. The trick is figuring how much culture to use to get an acceptable proof.

We must be on a Thai kick. We ordered take-out from our fav Thai restaurant earlier this week. I had curry & veggies, Paula had her fav Thai soup Tom Ka Guy (sp). Then tonight we marinated some beef Tbone and sliced it into a spicy salad with Nouc-Mam Thai chiles & cucumber. Cilantro, peanuts. Another month of this and we'll have to go through the doors sideways.

Dinner tonight: Sautéed chicken breast in lemon-butter-caper sauce over whole wheat spaghetti with broccoli. And a glass of a nice crisp white wine. Mmm that was tasty.

We caved and got takeout tonight. A great dinner package - pick a pasta (baked ziti), a meat (chicken parm) and a salad (Caesar). I obsessively wiped/sanitized salad dressing container- dumped salad into my own bowl and promptly heated everything else in my oven to kill any potential virus. It’s a lot of work for take out. This new normal is exhausting.
