A Few Things
September 3, 2011 § 2 Comments
I had an unfortunate immersion blender accident recently (what? it could happen to anyone!). I didn’t do any major damage, just enough to have a bulky, bandaged pointer finger on my left hand which means I’m typing with one hand. I’ll be brief:
~been making a really simple slaw (see above) that consists of shredded green cabbage, two shredded carrots, half of a red onion, a bunch of cilantro, chopped, cider vinegar (about 1/4 cup), a little honey, a squeeze of lime, and salt. You can improvise on all amounts and the liquids can be different, too: Honey and vinegar, lime and honey, lime and sesame oil (really good), etc. Cheap, light, and full of flavor. Make it for a barbecue (Labor Day?).
~sewed myself a new pillow cover that I’m not in love with, but thankfully, it’s not hard to make a new one when I get sick of it.
~made this potato “salad” recipe (love this site, by the way) and it was great. Tried making my own mayo instead of sprucing up a store-bought version (this was when I cut my finger). I’d try it their way next time. Seriously, so good. Try it.
~made a cauliflower-bacon gratin from Around My French Table that impressed me. It’s rich, so a little goes a long way. Basically, it’s this filling, no crust, and lots of cauliflower and bacon (those two things are cooked before they go into the filling). Keeper.
