A Typical Day
On Sunday morning I made Texas Hot Sauce for the guys at the shelter. Apparently the last time I made this they really liked it and word got back to me that they were wishing for more.
Twelve pounds of ground beef, 6 hours of cooking and 150 hotdogs later, they were ready to be served.
It is scape time and I cut my garlic scapes early the same morning.
I had a bunch of blueberries that needed to be made into jam so I put them to cook on a back burner.
I made lots of coffee....this is my preferred brand.
If we were about to have jam, we needed biscuits, so I whipped up some biscuit dough.
I sauteed the scapes.
And made everyone scape omelets with bacon.
The jam cooling.
Freshly baked biscuits with butter.
Blueberry jam and rhubarb jam.
I made pizza dough for later in the day.
And I made a chocolate and vanilla oreo cake for the shelter.
It was a poke cake and topped with chocolate pudding and then whipped cream.
The Sicilian pizza we had for lunch.
I made Scotch eggs and blueberry pancakes for breakfast for those who did not want scape omelets.
Then I prepared some Indian food fordinner. This is dal made from lentils.
I harvested lots of fresh herbs to use in everything.
I made dough for naan.
And potato and hard boiled egg curry.
I cooked the naan on the griddle pan.
Then brushed them with garlic butter.
I also made lamb koftas.
The finished idlis. These are served covered in dal.
