Food, vegetarian, cooking tip
I made buttermilk scones today, which I’ve done many times, but discovered something new this time. After I’d worked the dough the right amount I folded it once, pressed it to the desired thickness, and cut it. The result was scones that pull perfectly in half, because of that fold that wasn’t really worked.
Cabbagetown Cafe used to have a wonderful "Soup, Salad and Bread" meal. A cup of their soup of the day, a salad with their famous "LSD" (Lemon Sesame Dressing), and a thick slice of fresh-baked bread, either cornbread or whole wheat.
Sadly, the restaurant is long gone, but we're recreating (-ish) the meal for dinner tonight. The soup is leftover split pea. The salad doesn't have the LSD dressing, but it does have a homemade sesame dressing. And I made fresh cornbread.
I still remember that when the iPhone was first announced, I wrote a blog post about "a portable device with always-on Internet access and GPS, imagine the possibilities", and two of the ideas I came up with were:
-A dating app that identifies other users who are currently nearby
-A Pokemon-style game where you catch the critters by going to real places
And of course I didn't do anything with either of them. Sigh.
Made instant pot split pea and ham soup for the first time yesterday. I’d never made split pea soup before because, pre-instant pot, I thought dried beans and peas were too much effort. What I didn’t know was that leftover split pea soup shrinks when you put it in the fridge. I guess the peas keep absorbing the liquid? The leftover soup today was half the volume of the soup I put in the fridge last night.
Old computer books had the best covers.
