  1. Today I took the kids to the dentist and decided to stop at Delicias de España. Great because at this location there were very few customers in the store section. I got lomo, coppa serrana, sobrasada, chorizo, olives, some tomatoes in jars, legumes and some frozen items (croquettes made on the house, frozen fish) and 5 liters Spanish extra virgin olive oil. Then my husband received a couple things for morning congee
  2. I made triangoli alla marmellata from Omar Busi. This is a leavened dough with sugar/egg/butter and laminated. Instead of the jam, I filled them with frangipane. My boy turning 13 today, no party but he got a special breakfast

    Dinner 2020

    My husband said he was going to buy for my birthday a black board to hang in the kitchen. Today chez Franci 🤣🤣🤣 I threatened to leave him with no food if he dared. I find that the satisfaction I get from a meal really can make my day much better. I am maybe weird in this but I hope everybody really is enjoying his/her meal at the table, so I really glad you had a similar approach @heidih. Of course, as mom, I will make sure my son diet doesn’t consist only on croissants and bacon just because he really likes it but that’s different 😁

    Dinner 2020

    I never thought this would be possible but often a full beer is able to ruin my next day...my husband complains no end that I am no fun, cannot drink anymore 😁 red wine, I cannot even sniff it anymore. Anyway, my cooking has become a little unstructured lately. I often don’t have a plan and one hour before dinner I start thinking what are we going to eat. No, not completely true. I alway defrost some protein the night before. It was some time that I thought of making hot dog buns (Ann’s recipe) because my daughter is the only one eating hot dogs. So, I made the dough yesterday night and baked the buns tonight. I also made some crispy tofu in the oven. We all love it, except the girl, she had her hot dogs...since I had some eggplant in the fridge, I decided to cook it like the tofu. Really tasty, I will make it again! And I had some shrimps that went on the cast iron grill. Ah, and I made some minestrone for tomorrow lunch so I had a little bowl, no pasta or rice in it.
  8. I made hot dog buns with a recipe of @Ann_T, I’ve been using this recipe for quite a few years already. Thanks Ann! I also made with some of the dough mini burger buns (13g of dough each, little snack for the kids and always very popular at parties)

    Nutritional Yeast

    For this I normally don’t follow a recipe but I do track all my food consumption and when I like it, I save the recipe. The power blend is a mix of frozen kale/chards/spinach if I remember. I made 9 burgers. I smash some of the cooked chickpeas but not too much because I like the texture, I microwave the frozen vegetables and let cool, squeezing some of the water out and the miso should be a teaspoon. I try to make them very nutrient dense 😁

    Lunch 2020

    I have a lot of tacos from a jamón my husband bought...he said he is taking a break from it! Good. He found another local Spanish store and he was going crazy ordering whole jamones. This last leg was not very successful with the kids and me, quite salty. So I made with it some “sugo finto” literally “fake sauce” like a ragú no minced meat but prosciutto, or better jamón. I can see some croquettes in the near future

    Nutritional Yeast

    I use it in vegetables burgers all the time and in some quick breads where I use vegetables in it or in savory muffins. It’s a way for me to add a bit of flavor and protein without much fat. I use about 12g a recipe. I will only use for baking.
