  1. Today
  2. Eating plenty. Including more sweet stuff than usual. Ice cream. M&Ms. Two days ago we baked an Atlantic Beach Pie. Yesterday I baked a chocolate loaf. Afternoon snack was lots of crackers with Cambazola. Dinner was roasted potatoes in duck fat and and a filling salad. And yet I am having to belt several pairs of jeans they are getting so loose. I will admit I am a bundle of nerves.
  3. @sartoric That s an amazingly deeply colored "tib". We have lots but more pink. Great assortment of vegetables. Unpredictable harvests inspire creativity. My old kumquat had younguns during drought with no supplemental water. Thus small fruit and very seedy. Fragrant though. This little bowl had this many seeds (a water issue - self preservation). I got the jam too dark so no image but it has a "deep" flavor, We had a good bit of rain last 2 weeks and are expecting 10F jump in temps this week so the fruit should be juicier in a couple weeks.
  4. Ditto here, also. I have found that minor/low level stress will make me want to eat, but major stress completely shuts down my appetite.
  5. So I put together the list of Vermont maple syrup producers. I'm not sure if I got all of the producers in the state but I found quite a few. I organized the list alphabetically and listed the town in which they are located. I'm sure a quick Google search will give you their websites and/or contact information if you want more information about any of their maple products. The producers in bold are ones I have personally tried and all of them are quite good. The best ones I also put a "*" next to. · Adam Gagne – Swanton, VT · Aither's Ridge Top Farm – Hyde Park, VT · Allen Family Maple – Charlotte, VT · Andersonville Maple – West Glover, VT · Apple Hill Sugarworks – Barre, VT · April's Maple LLC – Canaan, VT · Back Ledge Maple/Darlene's Delectable Delights – Johnson, VT · Backwoods Alchemy – Enosburg, VT · Baird Farm – North Chittenden, VT · Ball Brook Sugar House – Pownell, VT · Barred Woods LLC – Montgomery Center, VT · Bear Cobble Sugarworks – Bristol, VT · Beaulieu Family Maple – Sheldon, VT · Bennett Farm Maple – West Charleston, VT · Berard's Sugarhouse – Readsboro, VT · Bill's Lake Shore Maples – Newport, VT · Bobcat Hill Maple Products – Hinesburg, VT · Bourdon Maple Farm – Woodstock, VT · Boyden Valley Winery & Spirits – Cambridge, VT · Bragg Farm Sugarhouse & Gift Shop – East Montpelier, VT · Branon Family Maple Orchards – Fairfield, VT · Branon's Barrywilde Maples, LLC – Fairfield, VT · Branon's West View Maples – Fairfield, VT · Bread Loaf View Farm – Cornwall, VT · Browns River Maple LLC – Essex Junction, VT · Buck Family Maple Farm – Waterbury Center, VT · Buck Mountain Maple, Bee & Tree Farm – New Haven, VT · Burgess Sugarhouse – Underhill, VT · Bushee Family Maple Farm – Danby, VT · Charron's Family Maple – West Rutland, VT · Chauvin's Sugarhouse – Hyde Park, VT · Choice Maple – White River Junction, VT · Cold Corners Mapleworks – Fairfield, VT · Collins Sugar Bush – Newport Center, VT · Cook's Sugarhouse – Hyde Park, VT · Corey's Maple Orchard – Enosburg Falls, VT · Corse Maple Farm – Whitingham, VT · Couture's Maple Shop/B&B – Westfield, VT · Covered Bridge Maple Sugaring – Newport Center, VT · Cross Road Sugar Co. – Ira, VT · Crossroad Maple – East Fairfield, VT · Deep Mountain Maple – West Glover, VT · Deer Ridge Maple – Derby, VT · Donald Richards – Milton, VT · Dutton Berry Farm – Brookline, VT · Dwight Miller Orchards – East Dummerston, VT · E.

  6. We’re having a seedling and seed shortage here, probably due to panic buying by non gardeners. Heard someone walked out of a nursery with broccoli seedlings saying “yay, broccoli in 2 weeks” yeah right. The Tibouchina is flowering, a beautiful colour. Shame about the bare patch, a product of the recent drought, it will be pruned back heavily soon. We’re harvesting lots of mizuna for leafy green dishes. We’ve also got lettuce (cos and butter) sufficient for current needs, a large butternut squash patch, jap pumpkin, sweet potato and regular potatoes. These first little guys are destined to be steamed and slathered in butter. I will do this while husband is in his shed, there’s not enough to share, lol. We have also picked okra and two types of green beans. This is a huegelkulture bed, I think we’ll plant cauliflower and broccoli (if we can get seeds somehow). Behind it the kumquat tree is full of fruit, they are slowly ripening. The brandy is waiting. A weird one - this is wild tobacco, should be pulled as it’s a weed. However, it’s also said to be a great substitute for toilet paper...keeping this one in the ground.
  7. Aaaaaaand, we have internet again! The aforementioned quiche and salad: And how close the tornado came to me.
  8. To me, some of the best part of khao soi is the interplay between the curry, the roasted chili paste, raw shallots and the pickled whatever...

    Dinner 2020

    Roast beet salad with whipped goat cheese. The goat cheese is a recipe from Alon Shaya and is just terrific. A dish we never get tired of shrimp and grits gussied up with scallops.

    Thanks! For the curry, I made the rempah and cooked a quadruple batch of the curry (without the chicken) then divided and froze. That's what I usually do. This time I added a bit of new coconut milk during the cooking of the chicken which really perked it up. It was just as addictive as I remember it being in a kopitiam in Singapore. For the prata, it's actually a relatively lean dough. For this version it was 600g flour with approx 10.8% protein. I made this using 118g 7% protein cake flour and 482g of 11.7% KAF all purpose. To this about 1t salt 1T sugar 15ml grapeseed oil 300ml water and 1 egg. Mixed by hand and let sit covered for about an hour or so. After that, I could actually knead it without using any extra flour. I kneaded it in several sessions of about 5 minutes each, separated by 20 min of rest. Divided into 8 balls, rolled in grapeseed oil, then sit in ramekins covered for a few hours. Then sit in the fridge overnight. This afternoon I froze 6 and stretched 2 a few minutes before the chicken was finished. Cooked until brown on both sides on a med-high pan with a bit of grapeseed oil. I think the key is lots of kneading interspersed with lots of rest to relax the gluten.
  11. Thanks! The butter could be an applesauce if you stopped simmering earlier, but I wanted to limit the amount of moisture I was adding to the pie given that the sliced apples would be raw going in.
  12. OMG Kay. I had no idea that tornado was so close to where you live now. Bless you and your family. Yep, I said the same to Ronnie earlier...had the mall etc. not been closed the loss of life could have been really bad. We are all in this together. (((hug)))
  13. I've lost my appetite too. I always thought I was a stress eater, but both this and another earlier problem (just for me and Ronnie) has taught me that is not true. Bad thing is, my appetite for wine has upped....
  14. We made a cassoulet-esque dish from great northern beans, the turkey thighs that were the only thing in the store, and some kielbasa. It was actually pretty tasty.
  15. The shepherds pie from leftover meat loaf wound up being three small pies. I had just delivered one to my elderly friend from church when I got a frantic call from my daughter: "Come home NOW! There's a tornado coming!" You may have seen on the news it are a swath through Jonesboro; in fact, a half mile from my house. Had the mall and several restaurants that were demolished not been closed due to COVID, it would have been much worse. As it was, we had no damage, have no internet but did not lose power. So I made quiche and Waldorf salad for lunch today. As I have no internet, I can't load pics. As some internet wag noted, my 3-month trial of 2020 is almost over. I think I'll return it.

    Dinner 2020

    Both bowl and bread look fabulous. Bread "crumb: or flakiness particularly perfect. Any pointers?
  17. Sounds good to me. I'll see what I can get my hands on as far as a replacement for the mustard greens goes and give it a shot. I've made khao soi plenty of times and just ate it without the mustard greens and enjoyed it, just thought it'd be fun to give it a try with all the traditional stuff in the bowl.
  18. Eating so little while home. Just not hungry. Walking a lot, good for sanity, and losing weight by the day. Maybe not the thing to do during a pandemic.
  19. I am currently working on a list of all maple syrup producers in Vermont if anyone is interested. I will post it here regardless once I finish it in a few days.
  20. Oh, that reminds me. Makes an awesome mayo for a tomato sandwich. Regular or fried green.

    Dinner 2020

    Finally, after 5 years of trials, I got this dish where I want it.... Singapore style chicken curry with homemade roti prata and stir fried gai lan
  22. Not normally a sweet person but those look good. Bake on sir!
  23. After eating pizza for dinner for the last six days straight, I switched things up tonight: Those are Peter Reinhart's recipe from Bread Baker's Apprentice. The caramel is maybe the best I've ever had on a sticky bun.
  24. Maybe... I've always thought they poured boiling water over, drain, the put in jar with vinegar salt and sugar
  25. We needed to be in Orange County yesterday morning, so we went to the Costco Business Center in Westminster. There are things that we can only get there. My DW picked up a case of Top--Ramen-type ramen for my daughter and her family. She came by today to pick up some other food and was thrilled to get the ramen. It's been very, VERY hard to come by here in Southern California.
