Fasole cu ceapa calita - Romanian style bean spread with carmelized onion in paprika.
The spread is flavored with sauteed vegetables, parsley and a little butter.

The reddish tint of the paste is due to me using half red beans and half navy beans.

 

PS - Sorry Anna, I promise no more pastes in the near future.

No photos. The last of the holiday pickled herring on multigrain, washed down by two glasses of Akvavit and followed by a long nap.

I like my paste a bit coarse.

Make a batch sometimes. No sugar, pure chocolate and I like macadamia kernels. The entire pot is already gone (just made it yesterday...).TO1C0SX.jpg

Being Chinese New Year, we had savory tang yuen with daikon, Chinese sausage, dried baby shrimp, pork, bak choy leaves, and cilantro. Dipped the glutinous dumplings in soy sauce, sesame oil, and black and white pepper.

remnants of clean out the freezer challenge + leftovers...some mushroom/lentil soup, added some cooked swiss chard, tore up leftover cooked turkey and heated the whole lot up. Pretty tasty except for the last drop I got when tilting the container into my mouth, must have had some leftover grit from the swiss chard as well.

lunch was as simple as breakfast today.  Jarlsberg cheese barely melted on an English muffin. I wanted it to be more complex but couldn't find my pimenton.

After what felt like weeks of rain, followed by several days of chilly temps, caped off by more days of ferocious winds, we have a brilliantly sunny Monday with 80+ deg temps.  Following the spirit, if not the letter, of the freezer clean out challenge, I had 2 popsicles for lunch.  Plutot and tarragon followed by Thomcord grape and port.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Turkey Sandwich :  CSB'd turkey , etc

 

TS PF.jpg

 

made with this bread :

 

FM 12grain.jpg

 

a few weeks ago I made a similar sandwich with Arnold's multigrain bread.  I didn't care for that bread.  it was quite dry.

 

this loaf was much better , and what I was thinking about at the time a few weeks ago.  some of the grains are in the bread itself.

 

as i recall , the Arnolds version had then on the crust.  don't quite me on that , but that's what I recall.

 

the loaf was much moister and fresher.  I took the time to get a loaf from the back , where the fresher loafs reside.

 

if you want this sort of bread for a sandwich , consider PF's 12 G's

 

you know what I mean  a little softer side , a little sweet , 12 grains ( probably ) to assuage your guilt.

I did forget to pick up some of those hot italian flavored pickles

 

also missing here for those w EagleEyes : Tot's

 

as Im currently on the Freezer Clean Out , no Tot's for a while ...
