Today, my friend “Kay” and I went to town and watched the waves at the ferry terminal. It was cold but it was sunny. We got out to take a few photos, but we quickly jumped back in the van to warm up again. Afterward we went out for lunch. Nothing fancy--we split a tuna sandwich and had two bowls of Split Pea with Ham soup.
Back home again, Kay had to leave, and I started to feel achey and tired. Once in a while I get the symptoms of flu and then it’s gone by the next day. I’m hoping it’s one of those times.
As usual I’ve been cooking. I’ve noticed I’m leaning toward summer foods. Making fruited ice creams in the winter, I’ll admit, is a bit bizarre. The cantaloupe, although not a favorite of mine, was juicy and sweet.
The final result
I found a blog titled foodiefarmgirl.com, and I made a pan of the Blueberry Breakfast Bars (http://foodiefarmgirl.blogspot.com/2006/0
I rushed a tomato recipe. It’s too soon. The tomatoes are not in season, so it was lacking.
I did manage to make and serve a wonderful winter dessert, and I think I will change the Panettone Bread Pudding w/Amaretto sauce, to “Amaretto Pane Nirvana”
I think I'll spend the remainder of winter experimenting with bread recipes.
Spring is on it's way....
I'm obesessed with everything "food", and I will be posting all of my recipes --with photos--on this journal.
Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies, and I cook something new at least every other day.
Some of the cookbooks I'll be using are by Mario Batali and Michael Chiarella. I'll be using the following books:
Molto Italiano: 327 Simple Italian Recipes to Cook at Home
