    Made stock and threw together soup from leftover sweet potatoes, carmelized shallots,and red bell pepper, with lashings of smoked paprika and ancho chile. Hit it with the stick blender for that creamy texture.

    Really good but who wants to look at a photo of brown soup?

    My sweetie promised celeriac soup. I suggested garlic, dill, and caraway. Love celeriac!!

    Made crepes for the first time. With a shrimp and scallop cream filling. Having three pans going strains my limited cooking ability, but it turned out okay.



    Basically, an egg burrito.

    Ta! Herself grew up Catholic, so despite her present unbelief, we still eat fishy stuff on Friday. It anchors our menus for the week.

    Tomorrow we're having köfte lamb (same spices as Swedish meatballs). Or merguez, which is a similar lamb sausage with roast red bell pepper and hot peppers.

    Some sort of couscous pilaf on the side.

    Made a batch of sourdough ciabatta dough today: sandwich rolls and burger buns.



    The combination of sourdough starter and yeast really gives the dough a nice texture. It puffs up beautifully in the oven.

    Thanks, mon. Living 30 miles from town with no place to eat out, can't hang with my mates at the bar. No base for skiing yet.

    What's a guy s'posed to do but cook up a storm?

    (I'll try to write down a recipe for the bread and will post it. Have you ever baked your very own burger buns?)

    Chip - is there a secret to making sourdough starter during the winter? I've tried a couple of times lately and failed.

    Looks good enough to eat.

    I cooked a dozen of these recently.

    IMGP0208.jpg


    They were filled with a sort of eastern European cabbage roll inspired kind of thing. Half had bison burger in the mix, t’other had mushrooms. Mustard as a condiment got the thumbs up. They froze and reheated (microwaved) well but didn’t last long. I’m hearing requests for more.


    I used the last of the red cabbage from my garden in that mix. Really liked that cabbage; tasty and a good keeper. Planting more this year.

    Cool! I've never tried that sort of thing: rolls with filling. I'd guess you cook the filling first, but how do you get it in the roll without a huge mess?

    There are hundreds of ideas on the web. A friend boiled potatoes and drained the starchy water, then let it sit out with no lid. After a couple days, it started to bubble and smell sour, so he mixed in some white flour: off to the races. Some people use a packet of yeast to begin with.

    My wife had a starter when we got married, that she'd kept for ten years before then, so it's more than thirty years old. When we moved to New Zealand for a while, we placed it with foster parents and retrieved it when we got back.

    Yes, I cooked the filling first. There was some brown rice and barley in the mix and canned tomatoes from the garden. It was thickened a little with a roux so it was not runny when it came time to fill the 'rolls' (similar to beirocks or runzas).

    Those were made with a pizza type dough rolled out to about nine inch diameter. The outer inch and a half or so was rolled out really thin. Plop the stuffing in the middle and gather up the surrounding dough and pinch it together. Set the pinched side down on baking pan and shape the roll. I didn’t use any egg or water to stick the dough together but did brush some egg on the outsides right before baking for color and to give the seeds something to stick to.



    I used the same dough recipe to make some calzones before that batch of ‘rolls’. They didn't last long either.

    Herself requested a pizza with no tomato sauce. So I used alfredo sauce, grated mozzarella, minced garlic and onion, red bell pepper, mushrooms, and vacuum-packed pieces of turkey breast from Thanksgiving.



    She liked it. So did I.

    Well, I have to be fully honest and relate that one of my companions is a chef and she prepared the meal.

    I would never have thought to use fresh fennel and yogurt, but it was great.
