 Polenta with garlicky mushrooms. 

 

 

Your polenta looks very creamy and most excellent, Anna. I'm glad you found your way with it.

Poached eggs on homemade brioche.  What a mismatch.  Never again.  What was I thinking?

Fried rice with bacon, chicken, salami, corn, egg.  We are going out of town tomorrow, trying to eat as much of what's in the fridge as possible.  I am so proud of Griswold skillet handling fried rice without anything sticking to it!

Ive never understood the difference between Soppressata and Salami ( genova or maybe ? )

 

Not sure I understand either even after watching the video. I just find salami, as I usually encounter it, much drier and with less fat content than soppressata.

Yesterday, the high temp was 108°F here.  Today's breakfast was a Vietnamese Coffee popsicle from the recipe on David Lebovitz's site.  Plenty of caffeine and sugar to start the morning!

So, so jealous.  Still no room in my freezer for such luxuries.

Me too...I'm still picking away at mine but it's very slow going.  When it cools down I plan to make more of an effort even if it means throwing out a lot of stuff.

Mine is really no better. My popsicle-freezing space had recently been occupied by slow-roasted tomatoes, stewed tomatoes and chicken broth.  I managed to clear enough space but it now requires a very firm touch to close the door and an advanced-level game of Tetris to find anything!

That's such a perfect description!!!  I often get frustrated when trying to find something that I eventually give up and go to the store!  I know it's in there somewhere but cannot find it.

I don't pretend to be an expert on the matter. But in my experience. soppressata has always been more highly seasoned than salami. Or, scratch that -- HOTTER than salami. Dunno if that's a legit difference or just in what I've tried. I know I stay away from anything labelled "hot soppressata," because they ain't kiddin'.

I used to do that too, lindag. That is how my freezer became my enemy instead of my friend. Even in high summer, you can clean out your freezer. Just do it the day before your scheduled garbage pickup, or maybe in rural Montana, the day you will haul your own trash to a centrally located dumpster or a town dump. Been there, done that with both of those garbage disposal methods. I realize with the kind of wildlife you have in Montana, setting it out for them would be very dangerous.

 

I have many more times than once, been digging through overfull freezers, looking for something that was in there, putting everything on the counters. I would set the item aside when found and begin putting stuff back into the freezers. I'll be damned if I haven't crammed the target item back in there, simply because there was no room on the counters to really set it aside. 9_9 It gets quite insane. If I did this again, I'd put the target item in the fridge until I put everything else back.

 

My freezers may return to their usual unmanageable and wasteful state, but I sure hope not.

This was my breakfast again today and will continue until there is a significant change in the weather.

Very good stuff for breakfast or perhaps lunch in a sandwich.

 

Typically has notches cut in it to counter curling of thin slices.

 

I just cut them thicker. ;-)
