Bakeapalooza


I already feel the heat rising in the house.

Tonight begins my baking extravaganza leading up to my birthday. Because I always bake myself a cake for my birthday. It's tradition, and will always be.

I have grand ideas for this year. Blame The Great British Baking Show for that. I will fill you in on all the details later.

But here is a teaser - pecans. It will be in the cake, in the filling, in the decoration. Currently in the oven for a light toast.

Say a prayer for me... I'm going in.

On Nutrition?

The Webster's Dictionary defines nutrition as...

Yeah... so about that.

The up side to having a blog which no one reads is that when you don't follow through on plans, no one really notices. Life, as it tends to do, got in the way and left me focusing on things other than writing. A handful of blog posts from this month are languishing in the drafts folder. I can go back to them and finish, but it's hard to recall the state of mind I was in as I was writing it.

Bleh.

Time to binge The Great British Baking Show

Celery Juice?

Don't waste your time.

Use that celery for good. Like chicken/tuna salad. Stirrer for your Bloody Mary. Dipper for blue cheese or dare I say it.... RANCH DRESSING.

Wonder Noodle Fettuccine in Peanut Sauce

get in mah behleh...

a.k.a. Lazy Pad Thai. Can it even be called that? 

Sure. My food, my rules.

Going full steam with the noodle switch. Shirataki is something to get used to, but I don't know if I  could eat it with a tomato sauce. It doesn't seem right. 

Asian foods, no problem. It goes. For this, I sauteed the noodles in beef fat, and doused it in peanut sauce. Sesame, hemp hearts, chili flakes.

Gone in an instant. And yay timing... I've got more noodles coming in tomorrow. Thanks Thrive Market!

Jerk Chicken Eggroll


Co-worker brought me some food to try, as she does from time to time. Someone she knows had a food truck and invited people over for a meal. They're was seafood, curry turkey, and these eggrolls. She was told it was spicy, so she saved it for me. 

Just a hint of heat, and surprisingly sweet. The veggies weren't overcooked,  as they can be sometimes. I hope she brings more in her next visit.

If you want to check out the food, its C & E Grill 43 in Newburgh.
