I still have a cold, but I’ve been trying to distract myself with baking, cooking and researching new meal ideas online. Its amazing how wonderful food seems to be once you’ve gone through a period without being able to digest it. Once that pill was out of my body, I delved into all my cookbooks and started brainstorming new culinary adventures. Here are some of my new zany ideas:
1. Homemade cheese
I LOVE cheese and relish the idea of making my own. All I’ll need is a cheese cloth, rennet, a ladle and a few other ingredients depending on the type of cheese and I’m set!
This is a great cheese making video:
2. Baked Alaska
Hubby doesn’t trust me with a blow torch, so I think I will actually bake this thing and see how it turns out.
3. Broken Glass
I’d like to find some good veggie gelatin to make this awesome desert. Any suggestions?
I’m no health nut, but I have to eat a salad each day or else the sky will collapse! But I’m getting bored with the same old, same old. So I’m hoping to incorporate some new ingredients in my veggies like : Blackberries, pine nuts, homemade cheese (woo!), olives, water chesnuts and different types of dressings and vinegrettes.
5. Strawberry and rhubarb everything..
I’m hoping to go out harvesting these in fields and my parents backyard soon and will be making all sorts of yummy desserts and jams.
So that’s all that I’ll post for now, since I could go on and on and bore you even more. LOL. Anyways, I don’t think I’ll be going to the Glebe Garage Sale this weekend. I really doubt I will be able to muster the energy and patience that it requires. Plus, I have other errands that were put off due to illness that I should do this weekend.
