In My Kitchen: April 2017
Above is a salad from a supermarket magazine. It was like a coleslaw with a gingery Asian vinaigrette. I planned it for days. When I made it, the dressing was too acidic for me. A shame. I loved all the vegies. Fortunately I have been finding that plain old coleslaw has been working for a quick vegie side dish.
Golden Gaytime ice creams. So I could not resist trying the Golden Gaytime Cornetto (which I thought I saw somewhere as the Gaynetto but perhaps I just dreamt that up). I really liked the butterscotch and vanilla swirl of ice cream, even though it not something to eat regularly.
pizza base and pesto weren't home made. It was nice but a bit stodgy without vegies on the side.
So when we bought this packet, I showed her how to pour in the boiling water on the jelly crystals and then add ice blocks. I added a few too many iceblocks and it was too sloppy. We bought another packet and added less ice about 1/2 a cup rather than 3/4 cup and no extra cold water) and it works quite well. I think Sylvia now thinks we will live on jelly. Sadly, as it is sugar and chemicals, I am not sure it will be in our house that often. But at least I can offer Sylvia the fun of jelly making without gelatin.
Bizzy Lizzy who hosts In My Kitchen. I love reading her blog. She writes in a thoughtful and entertaining style that makes me look forward to reading her book. (And now that I finally finished The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August and Burial Rites, I think the Barber from Budapest is next.) I also received a packet of Hungarian paprika to assist with making some of the recipes from the book.
tofu nuggets instead of the milk and flour. Then I remembered that I had only used about 1/4 cup of starter topped up with milk instead of 1 cup starter.
I mixed the leftover seasoned starter and breadcrumbs, with some brown rice, grated carrot, finely chopped nuts and probably a bit of other stuff I don't remember. They were weird but work well in sandwiches. I still have a few in the freezer.
I am sending this post to Lizzy of Bizzy Lizzy's Good Things for the In My Kitchen event, that was started by Celia of Fig Jam and Lime Cordial, If you would like to join in, send your post to Lizzy by 10 March. Or just head over to her blog to peek into more kitchens. And stay tuned for next month when Sherry takes over from Lizzy as host.
