Shipping in the goodies

Today I am expecting a delivery from a fish company out of Alaska. I ordered their whitefish package that includes halibut, one of my favorites, cod, and rock cod. There will also be something I've never had: sablefish. The description sounded good, and I have never seen it in the stores where I... Sign in to see full entry.

The Making of Bread

My daughter in the Seattle part of the world is into baking bread these days. She has a 2- or 3-year old sourdough starter, and sent some home with Charlie who is getting interested in bread-making now, too. I never much got into it myself. I had a bread machine until it broke, and never bothered to... Sign in to see full entry.

linking to better meats

By the way, if you are interested in trying out the particularly good chicken I've been eating lately, here's a link to get $50 off your first order. I've tried their ground lamb, as well, and it was as good as any I tasted in New Zealand! It's to be noted that... Sign in to see full entry.

Winter shenanigans

Getting the mouse incursions cleaned up and disinfected, and setting out traps... An on-going battle every winter. And then, later today probably, I will be cooking up a nice turkey dinner for myself and the boys next door. I say 'boys' but the three average ~31 yrs, I think. Boys to me, at any...

Leftovers and others...

As CCT mentioned elsewhere, some of us would be content to not see another turkey wing for quite some time. We didn't have turkey, but I may still be sated from last year's! We did have plenty, in any case, though I literally forgot to cook that vegan roast I'd thawed. So in the next days, not only... Sign in to see full entry.

The Leftovers

The night after the feasting, comes the clean-up and the put-away. Clean-up is pretty straightforward and not too bad if there's a dishwasher on hand. Putting-away is another thing: finding enough containers with properly fitting lids. This year we solve that problem in a new way, for us. I save all... Sign in to see full entry.

Feast Time!

It won't be Thanksgiving without _____________! Every year we seem to slip further away from our traditional feast foods. Some are simply too far off dietary restrictions, some we actually never liked that much, but they were expected. The older I get, the less enthusiastic I am, too, about a day...

Beets and bananas

Today I again got out the peelers my Seattle daughter sent me,and attacked the beets that have been languishing in the fridge for several days. Long enough for the leaves to wilt... So I've put them in water to see if they can be perked up. After straight peeling, I used the shredding peeler to make... Sign in to see full entry.

Red cabbage

Today I looked up some recipes for red cabbage. I was thinking of the excellent stuff I had at a German restaurant, and decided to give it a shot. As it turns out, there aren't that many where it isn't just a side dish of braised, or red cabbage slaw. There are variations on braised, such as one... Sign in to see full entry.

Nothing is garbage until you throw it away

My Seattle daughter sent me a set of fancy peelers for my birthday. My favorite is the one that juliennes carrots and other hard vegies. I like to make that lightly pickled carrot garnish that's used in some Asian cuisines, and this makes it so easy! I shred the carrots then let them bathe a while... Sign in to see full entry.
