i Tri not to be Negative
There is a lot going on in the world of the Mike/Mitch project. Tonight I worked on four different recipes, went shopping for four more, reviewed a couple of recipes to make sure I had everything, and made desert out of Mitch’s World-famous Peanut Butter and some chocolate chunks.
Recipes I am working on:
I flipped the corned beef over in the brine.
I stirred what I increasingly believe is not going to be sauerkraut. I think it’s pretty much a lost cause at this point so I decided to dump in a bunch more brine and see where we are in a couple of days. If it doesn’t work out I guess we’ll just have to have Ruebens again sometime.
I boiled some wild rice so I can make another batch of Mahnomin Porridge.
And I made a starter for the Rye Bread.
Recipes I bought food for tonight:
Butter for the Pecan Rolls.
Fancy Rolled Oats for the Granola.
Cream for the Shirred Eggs.
Maple Syrup for Bison Sausage.
Recipes I reviewed tonight, but didn’t act on:
Jalapeño-Polenta Blinis with Sour Cream, Chives, and Caviar
I realize that each of those tasks is not that large, but for each one of those I read the recipe through three or four times to make sure I wasn’t missing something. Eating the desert wasn’t any work, but it still felt like a part of the madness. I should have put it over the top by washing down the peanut butter with some Hot Damn Cocoa.
