Corona Virus Cooking


Recommended Posts

 

Today the boy and I stress baked Chewy Squares, which are like a blondie but with raisins and walnuts in addition to chocolate chips. Recipe comes from my mom and I actually have a copy in her handwriting. We also made a plain white cake because he wanted cake. 

Want to share your mom's recipe?    Even post a copy of her handwritten instruction?   

I'm happy to, I'm just not sure how to post photos these days.

Our last meal from someone other than me was this...     pizza from Scarr's.  Their pizza has actually gotten better, in my opinion, as they've worked the crust to near perfection for this style

Why make scallion pancakes when you can make ramp pancakes?

I finally made really good fries at home. so exciting.

The other night, mushroom barley soup, along with a nice fillet of halibut (this from an order I received from Sea to Table) I roasted on top of some pre-baked mushrooms and potatoes. The leftover potatoes and mushrooms went into this

frittata, along with minced herbs and parmesan, to have for breakfast...

with Jones sausage (yeah, I like Jones sausage, don't judge) and sourdough rye from Pain d'Avignon.

 

At some point there was a salad...

for lunch, along with leftover mushroom barley soup. What I learned today is: don't use so much fucking barley in my soup - it turns into concrete! I think 2 - 3 T would be enough, as opposed to the 1/2 - 3/4 cup I actually used!

 

Last night for dinner, supporting one of my local faves...

Cafe Katja pick up, including liverwurst with pickles, potato cucumber salad (creamy and comforting), Berner Würstel and sauerkraut. There were also a couple of slices of their quite good rye bread (I think they get it from a bakery in Newark or Elizabeth). For dessert (but we'll have that today), applestrudel.

 

Most of their prices are now about 30% less than usual. And they're selling many, if not all wines from their list, at 1/2 price. So with 2 bottles of wine (a grüner and a riesling), the food mentioned above (and 2 pretzels with liptauer), I spent $96 before tip.

The nice thing about corona cooking is that I have enough time to cook the way I like to, which is to just see what's in the fridge and build a meal out of it. Highlights were grilled sausages with panzanella, bbq ribs with slow roasted sweet potatoes and a hispi cabbage slaw, a leek and potato soup with creme fraiche and Ossetra caviar from a tin I had left from Christmas, sautéed cherry tomatoes, onion, basil and capers on ciabatta croutons, etc...

Slapping myself upside the head for not planting somethings more useful.    Stephanie and N rock!

 

Thanks! N's ultimate goal is for us to buy as few fruits, vegetables, and herbs as possible (ie, our produce needs will be basically taken care of by our garden).

With your frenetic energy, I think you might quickly tire of being unable to leave the confines of your immediate house.

I've never made a Mississippi Roast before where I was home while it was cooking.  I can't keep myself from going over to stare into the Instant Pot every few minutes and think about how good it's going to be when it's ready at like 10 PM.

Hey, Sweetie, you've become a mid-Century housewife.
