Grilled Cheese

Posted on Friday 22 May 2015

grilled cheese
Yes, sounds dull but homemade loaf brushed with olive oil outside and mustard inside. Substantial, crispy, melty.

salad
And side salad of mixed greens, radish, cucumber and alfalfa sprouts.

And the next Planet of the Scapes column is up.

Some beans mixed with cumin mix, cheese, because we fell off the cow and are eating some dairy. Arugula, salsa, chopped tomato and alfalfa sprouts.

Knowing Beans

Posted on Wednesday 20 May 2015

soaked black-eyed beans
I lodge yet another disapproval of Yahoo mucking with interface of Flickr. Adds another click step and never remembers size preferences.

But small beans. Black-eyed. Soaked.

onion growth
This onion made a break for becoming a plant again. Why chop up such a survival will? We’ll plant it and see how it does.

boiling
A new recipe. In the slow cooker for the afternoon with a large can of tomatoes, some maple balsamic, molasses, a little bbq sauce, a squirt of ketchup, a toss of black pepper, a pinch of salt, a couple chopped small onions, 3 teaspoons of dry mustard, a pinch of cumin, Worcester sauce.

baked black eyed beans
There we go. Not as sweet as the last batch but not as flavourful either.

One pound of beans into 4 containers of 2-4 servings each.

Pizza & Celery Soup

Posted on Tuesday 19 May 2015

pizza
Something of a refrain, so mixing it up with all whole wheat, thick crust, sauce, caramelized onions, zucchini and green pepper. Baked on the baking stone on the bbq.

celery soup
Celery soup. Mostly celery, some potato, asparagus, herbs de province, almond milk.

Simply good

There are two types of people, those who love rice cakes and those who find it most comparable to chewing box board. Guess which camp I’m in.

avocado and almond
Cranberry pomegranate juice and rice cakes with almond butter and avocado.

improved
It was Quaker puffed rice or nothing for me, but it can be hard to find plain. I tried Lundburg farms before but they were uneven, with hard bits. They’ve fixed that.

Posted on Friday 15 May 2015

Thin. Simple, fresh, fast.

pizza
Some tofu marinated with olive oil, corn, rice vinegar, tarragon and basil. Green onion and pears.

squash sou
Squash rolled into the soup with sweet potatoes, carrots, marsala spice, cumin, coconut puree. A grate of fresh ginger for the top. Heavenly stuff.

And that’s a weekend.

When it all burns

Posted on Thursday 14 May 2015

So some of the food burnt and some isn’t ready in time. 4-minute frozen pasta to the rescue.

carrot salad with fresh ginger
On the greens a grated carrot salad. Grate carrots, grate ginger, mix in mayonnaise or mayonnot. Some kimchi, some pickles. Some sauce and we’re a go.

ice cream
Close off with some frozen yogurt in the yard.
