A few photoworthy cooking adventures of late.
How about these grilled tomatoes?
Can you hear them sizzling?
I was making Mark Bittman’s
Pan-Grilled Tomato Salsa.
Impossible to ruin.
You’re supposed to scorch them!
I needed to learn to make Chicken & Noodles after asking someone whose birthday was approaching what her favorite dish was and she said “Chicken & Noodles!” and I said, “Okay, no problem!” I hadn’t a clue what it was, how to make it or what it was supposed to look like finished. (Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.)
It all worked out. (Thank you, Google.)
I cut up lots of carrots and celery and made some homemade noodles, a completely unnecessary thing to do, but I hoped to score at least a few points even if the rest of the dish failed.
In other culinary news, I “put up” corn for the first time!
A real cinch, especially if you have someone who doesn’t mind husking just hanging around, willing to help. A dozen ears made a little over a quart of frozen corn. I blanched the kernels 2-3 minutes, plunged them in ice water, drained them, bagged them.
Let me know if you’re cooking up anything special, new (to you) or interesting. I get away from it for long periods of time, then come back to it.
