  1. Nice to meet someone else who keeps one of these journals.
  2. Making Cheese

    Look forward to hearing your results. I dabbled in cheese making for a time and found it to be a very satisfying endeavour.
  3. Recipes that Rock: 2017

    I spend far too much of my time with my head in cookbooks. I actually found this in Rozanne Gold's book but searched the web to find a link.
  4. Recipes that Rock: 2017

    This very simple recipe floated my boat! I added the goat cheese only because this was going to be my dinner. The salad certainly did not need it. Now I will be praying that somebody will stash their excess zucchini in my mailbox. I used only one zucchini and perhaps 2/3 of a very small lemon.
  5. Making Cheese

    I am not sure that without some acid it will actually separate into curds and whey. And I am afraid I have no clue what saltwater is without some sort of percentage of salt to water. Let's see what others have to say about this. Here's a recipe that at least gives some idea of how salty the water must be. So perhaps it will work without acid.
  6. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    They look a heck of a lot more like hedgehogs than porcupines but then I'd lose my alliteration. Had some leftover rice and some ground beef in the freezer that needed using up so tossed things together with a little of this a little of that. Pepper is either a cubanelle or a banana pepper. I can never tell the difference. Either way they are quite boring but not as objectionable as green bell peppers.
  7. Wow @patris. Glad I don't live close by. And they don't look very shippable so I think I'm safe.
  8. Hmmm. Seems like my decision to forget the whole Hello Fresh scenario was probably wise.
  9. Dinner 2017 (Part 5)

    Expectations and appearances to the contrary, this is not posted in the wrong topic. At least I can double dip to my heart's content.
  10. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    I awoke this morning craving mezgueldi, as one so often does. The Nielsen pantry is looking almost as bare as that of Old Mother Hubbard as I prepare to leave home for a number of weeks so meals will require a real stretching of the imagination. The onions on the bare naan were not highly successful but while none of you were looking I sprinkled on some fresh goat cheese and that did the trick.
  11. Hospital Time

    Been there, done that too many times. Hope you get home soon before you wither away to nothing!
  12. It's hard for me to think of anything that improved more than pork once I learned to Sous Vide It. And as a bonus it is almost always a bargain compared to most proteins. Even pork loin, which I considered only one notch above beef eye of round, is worth buying.
  13. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Patty from grocery store. Salad from Zahav.
