I'm totally nut free. I am allergic to almonds and Brazil nuts too, so I just stay nut free totally to be safe. I've been wanting to try sunbutter, but was afraid to.


I had anaphylactic shock to brazil nuts. Doctors saved me in hospital. At first I tried just very little sample- amount big like sesame seed. I tested it on my tongue. I didnít experience burning or tingling. Them I tried more another time. Now I can eat 2-3 Tbsp. I never liked peanut butter. When my mom sent me peanut butter, I gave it to my dogs as treat. Today I love it. I will make ďpeanutĒ butter sandwiches at least once a month. But I didnít eat any nuts, or sunflowers for 6 years prior this. When I tried the sunflower butter, I had my Epi pen and Albuterol spray next to me.

Get yourself some cheap reading glasses. Available almost anywhere with varying prices. but still cheaper than prescription ones.

I buy them at Dollar Tree..can't get much cheaper than that and I have extra pairs all over the house. Posted Image

Still away from home, housesitting so do not have all my stuff accessible. I am very limited but am making:

Twice-Stuffed Potatoes with Pancetta and Smoked Gouda
Seared Pork Chop with Pomegranate Reduction
Cucumber Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette

Your idea of limited makes me look like a total slacker! Of course I also have a tiny kitchen, and an almost as tiny budget. :rolleyes: But I like reading, it gives me great ideas! I'm going to be having leftover chicken thigh with rice noodles & green beans. For dessert I'll have a couple of Pamela's ginger snap mini bites. I love those cookies!

Tiny kitchens do make a difference - I know. Our kitchen in Croatia is the size of a closet and it stresses me to cook in it. So we do almost all our cooking/grilling/baking outside.

I think you are doing very well in spite of your tiny kitchen! :)

Oh, and my wording of dinner was unclear. Before I came out here to housesit I made up the potatoes and froze them. So I did not make it here. I am driving back into town tomorrow to do more cooking both for my husband who is in town and for myself to bring back here. It is easier than loading up all my own pots and pans and ingredients though I kind of wish I did because I miss cooking like crazy! I'm doing some but nothing like I would be at home. But it is great to be out here in the country where it is very peaceful and quiet. :)

There's an article in the NYTimes about the kitchen of Mark Bittman, formerly one of their food writers. I love it because it includes a photo of him standing in his kitchen, which looks like a typical NYC kitchen. :) Check it out. It might make you feel better, or even inspired!

http://well.blogs.ny...ns-bad-kitchen/

love2travel, I envy your getaway, even if it is a lot of driving back and forth.

Tonight:

-artichoke, grape tomato, goat cheese fritatta
-roasted potatoes with rosemary

Vegetarian (& easily made dairy-free by leaving out the goat cheese)

It is a lovely getaway - large log house, stone fireplace - as easy as it gets. And the snow is melting a bit today so it is warm outside!

Mark Bittman is a credible cook and food writer. Thanks for posting the photo - it surely about the same size as our Croatia kitchen! Makes me feel better. Our Canada house's kitchen is gigantic so I am quite spoiled. :)

Your fritatta sounds delicious! I bet it was.

Caramel Pudding


I got curious, and just now figured out what caramel is, basically almost-burnt sugar (just like the caramelized onions). I never made it before, so until now it was something that showed up in desserts at restaurants or in ice-cream. Sadly, as much as I like the taste of caramel, I don't want to try to make it myself now, since I'm avoiding sugar these days. :(

I went to the Farmers' Market today:

-gingery carrot pureed soup
-smashed wasabi sweet potatoes (I got clued into 'smashed' v.s. 'mashed' potatoes from reading love2travel's posts)
-stir fried kale with sesame
-vegan kim chee

Vegetarian AND vegan (I use a wasabi-infused oil, instead of butter). Actually, no gluten, egg, dairy, or soy.

Last night's frittata was delicious. :)

I SHOULD be avoiding sugar and am trying, actually, but once in awhile I make myself some yummy treats. Making caramel is actually fun but if you are not extremely careful, one second it will be golden brown and the next nearly black so you must remove it from the heat at the perfect time. So far I've never had to deal with it burned, thankfully.

Your vegetarian and vegan meal looks gorgeous. I love your wasabi smashed sweet potatoes and gingery carrot soup especially. Heck - the whole thing looks divine! Very impressive. I am really enjoying reading your posts. :)

Tonight dinner was modified chicken Brunswick stew. (Modified by adding the last bits of things in the cupboard, like 1/3 a bag of black eyed peas, left out the okra (didn't have any), added extra veggies I had on hand, like kale (also went to the farmers market today, the seller said he picked it last night). Used up a bunch of veggies! :D

Served it with Papaya Buckwheat muffins and frozen papaya daquiris.

The muffins stole the show. The stew was really good, but the muffins were excellent. My DP and I ate three each, and that's not like us.

I didn't think the stew would freeze well, so BIL and neighbor each ended up with a pint for lunch tomorrow and I still have a quart and a pint leftover. I made it with one chicken breast quarter, bone in, that was on sale and a link of chorizo sausage, casing removed, so it was a pretty thrifty meal.

I have a papaya tree that's producing like crazy. I found out by accident that if you leave a green papaya in your car for two days in the deep south that it will ripen perfectly.

I used to let my yeast rolls raise in the bowl and then on a cookie sheet in the car parked in the sun when it was cold and drafty in the house. My DP used to laugh, but it made the rolls come out perfectly and I din't have to turn the heat on in the house to have good yeast rolls. :D

Marilyn, where do you live that you have fresh papaya? That's so awesome.

Vegan meal: NOTE - I realized later that this isn't actually vegan. Vegans don't eat eggs. But it is dairy-free.

-garlicky mushroom masala omelet served over brown rice
-stir-fried green cabbage with fennel seeds

Both recipes are from Madhur Jaffrey's "Quick & Easy Indian Cookbook".
