Oh Daisy, feel better!!


First time I've checked in on this thread in a while and what should show up as the first unread post but StephanieL talking about scrapple! Which was funny, because that's what I had today, homemade, with a single fried egg on top. And Assam tea with skim milk and Sweet-n-Low.

Even coated in cornmeal before frying, the slice of scrapple almost didn't hold together.

I'm home, and on the mend. And thanks for the kind words, everybody. FYI the ginger cookies,which were terrific, are from Trader Joe's. Slightly thick,crisp little buttons with tiny bursts of what I think was crystallized ginger. Four with a cardboard cup of Irish Breakfast tea and a banana made an admirable meal, far better than anything on offer from Beth Israel.

Toasted 'sesamo' from Sullivan Street with avocado mashed down on it, drizzled with olive oil and s&p ground over. Vito's roasted peppers. Strong tea. Good breakfast for a cold,cold morning.

Strange combo, but it worked: plain yogurt, dried fruit and seed granola-like mix (but without the oil), and a small spoonful of this peanut butter.

Hot buttered pecan scones, Darjeeling.

A friend has been laid low after eye surgery and he loves scones so I made a batch this morning. For the first time I used the recipe for sultana scones in Colman Andrews' Irish country cooking book, subbing in chopped pecans for the hated raisin. I also substituted buttermilk for milk and added a teaspoon of salt, next time I think I might add two teaspoons. But they are pretty fantastic, very crisp and buttery. Buttery not a surprise since when I read the recipe calling for 625g flour and 220 grams of butter I thought whoa that's a lot of butter. I needed a little more milk than the recipe called for (420 ml). This recipe calls for only a teaspoon of baking powder and I think that's enough. The scones are not high but they aren't dense at all and have none of the slightly acrid quality I think a surfeit of baking powder can cause. And the sweetness level is ideal--just a hint (100 g sugar called for).

I had been reading about making baking powder breads in Darina Allen's book and used her suggestion to mix and aerate the dry ingredients by running your hands through them high over the bowl, lifting the mixture. She claims it makes the final product a bit lighter and I'm inclined to agree

It's the second thing I have baked from the Andrews book recently---last week I made spotted dog (soda bread with raisins for which I subbed tea-soaked dried cherries). This was also very good.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

After an extremely late night, and waking past noon, pancakes seemed the very thing. Blueberry buttermilk pancakes with a bit of cardamom mixed in the batter. Mmmm.

Yesterday's brunch/lunch here in NOLA at The Green Goddess-Duck Confit Boudin Hash. "A crunchy hash cake made of pulled duck confit, Creole Country boudin, fingerlling potatoes served with a crab boil poached duck egg inside a sweet potato biscuit, a side of truffle grits, foie butter, pepper jelly and Steen's syrup". Yes, it was 'oh my God' good.

Sounds good. It also sounds like it means going back to bed to sleep it off!
