Ready to start
I just realized that I spent about a third of my day yesterday cooking, and that is a wonderful thing.
I made pumpkin oatmeal with a pecan streusel topping, potato and spinach curry with cardamom scented basmati rice, bacon jam, and started two loaves of no-knead bread. Today I’ll be making vanilla lattes using my new espresso machine, ginger beer using a Serious Eats recipe, and some interesting-topping Superbowl pizzas by superheating my oven with a cast iron skillet as a pizza stone.
In light of Paula Deen’s diabetes confession, I turn to you, Martha Stewart, to help me continue on my journey toward obesity.
Spring Sunday lunch: fried cod on romaine with corn salsa and Sam Adams Noble Pils. I haven’t been grocery shopping in a few days so this was a surprising success!
There are only a few ways that Thanksgiving could be made better in my mind, especially from a culinary standpoint, but this guy Kevin (with his blog Closet Cooking) seems to have done the impossible. By making eggs Benedict out of the leftovers. God bless you, sir.
(makes 2 servings)
1. Place the muffin slices two per plate and top each with a tablespoon of cranberry sauce and a slice of turkey.
2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and reduce the heat to medium.
3. Crack an egg into a bowl, swirl the water in the pot and pour the egg from the bowl into the water and repeat for remaining egg.
4. Let the eggs cook until the whites are set but the yolks are not, about 2-3 minutes and fish them out.
5. Place the eggs on top of the turkey and cover with gravy.
It was time. Serious Eats has been going nuts about Japanese curry all week, and I had to try it. Yes, it looked like I was putting gravy ice cubes into a pot full of boiled vegetables, but it turned out to be delicious. Also, when faced with the options, how could one not buy Vermont Curry?
Housewives beware! Your love of televised sex will only lead to burned porkchops, french fry soup, and ketchup EVERYWHERE.
