yogurt and honey

yogurt and honey

A cow-orker (!) moves unwanted bee swarms and harvested 40# from a recent job. I put a bit on some of my homemade yogurt.

I drain it on a coffee filter so it’s quite firm. I always liked it thick, but didn’t know it was what they called “Greek style”.


Sprouting the Corning way

Found a sprouter NIB at a yard sale the other day.   From the graphics on the box and the Joske’s price tag on it the clues point to 1981.  The graphic shown is from a 1981 flyer that Google found and did OCRed. Continue reading

Today’s vegetarian dinner: dandelion and sauerkraut

No, I’m not going all Euell Gibbons. It was just what was at hand.

Due to my deep nights work schedule I have to do outdoor noisy things as soon as the law allows (8am here) then shower and hit the sack.

I went out to the front yard to walk it before mowing; twig removal, etc. I noticed small dandelions so I picked the greens and took them in, rinsed them off, and threw them in the steamer. Continue reading

[ovo]vegetarian lunch: fried rice

I cooked some sushi rice on Monday night before work (1c rice, 1.66c water, soaked overnight then cooked in rice cooker) but didn’t have enough time to cool it and infused with sushi vinegar.

So I refrigerated it until tonight and cooked it up for lunch.  Cold oil in hot wok, chowed the rice.  Then onions;  incorporated with rice and made a hole again.  I think 1 egg would have been a more normal ratio but now that the daylight is increasing the birds are in the mood to lay eggs again.

Added two eggs from the backyard chickens, scrambled then incorporated the whole mess.  Ate with a tiny bit of soy.

Scrubbed up the wok, dried on low and re-oiled.  Sure wish I had a gas stove…. the house is plumbed for it but the existing stove is electric.  Hard to control the heat with any accuracy.

Tonight’s meatless dinner: zuke, sprouted beans, plantain

Tonight’s  dinner:

  • sprouted red (adzuki?) beans from the Asian market.    Took ~4 days to sprout.  Sauteed with:
  • zucchini.
  • baked plantain
  • brown rice

The brown rice is going to be a little controversial for purists.   Continue reading

veggie breakfast + farmhouse ale

This may take some ‘splaining.

Yes, this is breakfast and yes that’s a half-liter mass of beer. Continue reading

Vegetarian dinner: more seaweed and a bit of seasoning

A recent dinner.  Again with the said quasi-sushiroll stuff.  Tastes better than it looks. Continue reading

3 veggie dinners in one week! woo hoo!

It was unintentional, but we had the highest % of meatless dinners last week.  If I were doing it on purpose it wouldn’t have been so bean-heavy.  I don’t mind, but Dear Wife is not excessively fond of beans.  1x/week max for her.


Note that I eat leftovers for my “lunch” at 2am, so I actually had 6 veggie meals during that week.
