Having been here a little over a year now, I wanted to do a more thorough re-introduction.
Hi! I’m pka_sarracenia (he/him)
I recently got into home brewing #beer
food • snacks • almost-a-recipe
I made corn chips!
They're actually super easy, too. Just cornmeal (the same kind you'd use for polenta), a little salt, and enough water to get a gooey cookie dough consistency. Mix into a paste, take a few spoonfuls and flatten them, then just fry them till they're golden and crunchy. I seasoned mine with sea salt and hot chilli powder 🌶️
Because we all like snacks, and sometimes it's easier to pick up a bag of cornmeal than multiple bags of corn chips!
Some random florespondence from the lawn.
homemade cocoa mix
The recipe for making homemade cocoa mix that's on the back of the Bob's Red Mill Milk Powder is actually really good.
1/4 C cocoa powder
1/2 C non-fat milk powder
1/3 C sugar
1/4 tsp salt (well-ground)
mix dry ingredients well. Use 1/4 C of above mix to 1 C hot water to make one serving of hot chocolate.
I made a big pot of Cock-a-Leekie soup over the weekend. It’s a 16th century chicken and leek soup from Scotland. If you’re looking for a new chicken soup recipe to try while quarantined, I recommend it. I used the recipe from Rampant Scotland as a guide
Here's a little #florespondence from my walk with the dog today.
The larger is an American Field Pansy (Viola bicolor) and the smaller ones are Tiny Bluets (Houstonia caerulea). Both show up all over this area as soon as Spring arrives and provide a welcome pop of spring colors after the dreariness of Winter.
My gardener is coming tomorrow which I'm so glad about. There's so much to be done & most of it I don't have the energy to do myself.
We've worked out how we are going to keep distance. I'm going to clean all handles etc before and after, and make her tea & biscuits using gloves. And I've made a detailed list of what I want need doing where, to help make it easier for her.
