xcptnl, that sounds ahhhh-mazingly good! When I've cleared some of the food from the freezer my first meat purchase is a roast!

Stretch and fold...I've barely learned how to knead! I guess if I'm going to learn might as well jump on in.

ETA: Thankfully she has nice photos! And I'd like to add my pastry mat can't get here fast enough. I'm going to hate cleaning that stupid counter up today.

It's actually cold here now. And maybe snow early in the am. It's a good night for stew (and wine )

I keep wondering if it's EVER going to get cold here. I'd love to break out a scarf a few times, at least.

Well, put it out there and ye shall receive. My Amazon package came in today with my pastry mat (haven't used it yet, but so far...LOVE), my new mouse so I can finally scroll again AND kick ass dry erase markers for the list board I made from an old frame.

My day is good. To top it off the kitchen smells like a bakery.

This is the last rest before shaping (then another short rest) and baking! It's so stretchy and bubbly!



Bubbles!

Up all night awaiting pictures of focaccia. How inconsiderate!

I don't know how food bloggers do it. This is a somewhat flatter edge piece and there were other prettier pieces, but I was so ready to stuff my face I snapped this quick and ATE. It was really, really good and Mr. Spring loved it. He kept saying "This is really good bread...", but it was muffled because his mouth was full. It made me want pizza.

Well, if you have leftovers, nothing's stopping you from putting some herb oil or pesto, cheese, and vegetables on that bread.

I've got exactly half left and it's screaming "pizza!" every time I look at it. We'll see.

I've been on a low carb cooking spree this week, trying all kinds of new recipes so the frig is full!
Supper tonite will be - veal with a garlic/almond crust, potatoes O'Brien (made with radishes instead of potatoes), and cream cheese/walnut/dark chocolate truffles.

Tonight will be leftovers of the sausage white bean pasta, salad and focaccia. I have a feeling the pasta will be even better as leftovers.

I have no idea why, but I've really been wanting to eat food cooked by someone else lately. I enjoy cooking and it's not like I choose complicated things to make, but I'd just like to enjoy eating a little more. A funk, I think I has it. Maybe I just need my momma. Or some of that focaccia with some cheese melted on it for lunch. That might help.

I may not have anything. I had some curry turkey vegetable soup from our culinary students and I'm feeling super sick. Either those kids poisoned me or I'm just really sensitive to the dairy in the soup!

My daughter will be having roasted herbed potatoes, roasted broccoli, and zucchini turkey meatballs.

I gotta go home and lay down, lol.

Chili. In the crockpot now and the house smells awesome! Maybe I'll make some cornbread although that is not helping my lowcarb.

Soup was dirt cheap at the store so I had a turkey BLT minus the T with tomato soup and the kids had chicken noodle and the non-sick child had a grilled cheese.

I kinda made it up as I went and I didn't really measure so keep that in mind

1 1/2 pounds of ground beef
1 1/2 tbs hungarian paprika
1 tbs finely ground black pepper
1 onion chopped
5 garlic cloves minced
1/3 cup sun dried tomato pesto (probably could substitute tomato paste and up some other spices)
2 tbs wostershire sauce
2 or so cups of chicken stock (probably could substitute beef stock)
1 small package (or 1/2 costco sized package) mushrooms, slice the caps. Save the rest for stock.
1/3 cup or more fresh parsley
1 small container of sour cream


Use the seriouseats method to quickly carmelize onions w/ garlic.
Add ground beef and cook until mostly done. Depending on the type of beef you have you may have to drain out the excess fat.
Add your spices - paprika, wostershire, salt, pepper, tomato stuff and blend well.
Add your chicken stock & mushrooms cook halfway covered on medium high heat for about 15 or so minutes. (I forget)

Note: When I'm in a rush to cook, I up the spices and cook at higher temperature. If I have time, I'll use less spices and do more of a low/slow braise.

When you get rid of most of the liquid (again to your preference), turn off the heat. Add your fresh parsley and your sour cream. I liked mine a bit on the watery side so I had quite a bit of liquid in it when I added the sour cream.

Cucumber Salad:
Cucumbers sliced thin w/ skin
Apple Cider vinegar
White wine vinegar
salt
pepper
dried dill.
fresh parsley chopped

Note: I prefer to use fresh dill and onions, but I was too lazy to chop up more onions and I didn't have any fresh dill.

Pizza made on the rest of the focaccia with Italian sausage, Canadian bacon (international pizza!), onions, bell peppers and mozz cheese with a salad on the side.

Best pizza I've ever made at home.
