Or like the other morning when I apologized for using too much butter in the hash browns.    Husband just stared at me.

Working my way through some Indian recipes from a not very good book - an experiment in seeing what works and what doesn't. The night before last I turned my kitchen into a post-hurricane site with a

Ta. I must give this a try.

Thank you thank you. But doesn't everyone look better wearing a bath mat?

A couple of recents.


Very simple pasta, with a sauce made from canned Italian tomatoes, butter, onion. Basil added at the end, as was Parmigiano-Reggiano. These are the tomatoes I tried for the first time...


Decent, not as good as others.I do like that they are packed in tomato juice as opposed to purée.

And those Thai ingredients are starting to be put to use. As in this pretty disgusting looking dish (next time will be served with rice on the side)...


Thai chicken curry with eggplant and carrots. Mistakenly defrosted the wrong chicken thighs from the ones I wanted to use. 

I now realize that Thai restaurants use more sugar than they really need to.

Bacon, mushroom, onion cheeseburgers with grilled corn on the cob dusted with RG Stardust and an heirloom tomato salad. Milkshakes with Malted Milk and Milk from Blue Hill put these shakes over the top.

Made pozole this weekend for Saturday and Sunday Breakfast.... It was delicious.. I have made pozole before, I made the green kind with hatch new mexican chiles, this time I used dried mexican peppers to make a red soup base..  Also, this is the first time I made pozole from dried hominy as opposed to the canned hominy... This was the biggest difference..  I didn't follow a recipe but, it's fairly straight forward.. There is pepper, there is garlic, cumin and there is the stewed meat. 

In addition to the pozole, which was vegan, i served with tostada with refried beans... The beans were black beans that I had cooked in avocado leaves.. It adds almost like a root beer flavor but, not obviously.. The black beans also had cumin, lime, garlic and salt... I blended these and spread them on the tostadas. 



Where as the soup is  traditionally made with goat, or lamb, or even pork, i did mine vegan.. To make up some of the richness, I added kombu and some msg to the mixture... I felt like it added some body and depth, on top of using three of 4 types of chile..  The cream is coconut yogurt. 



The boy had waffles and Ice cream for breakfast..

On a side note, if I ever put fried cauliflower on the menu, i am going to call it, Frita Caulo  Or if I open a vegan restaurant, i am going to call it Frita Caulo and then have an artist copy her self portraits and replacing her with  vegetables..

Boom easy
