I am finally getting around to posting a Tuesday Twister, hosted by Wardeh at GNOWFGLINS.
After a rough year & a very rough summer, I jumped in the kitchen, after the whole family came down with a stomach bug & decided I HAD to get back on the wagon. And.stay.there.
On Thursday I got my act together & did water kefir, dairy kefir & kombucha.
We've also fallen in love with the egg drink. It's made the table regularly in an effort to cram as many nutrients in as possible. I've also added trace minerals, powdered vitamins & powdered greens to it, to pack more of a punch.
Yesterday was stuffed jalapenos for the freezer (after we snacked on a few).
A few other things we've worked on the past few days:
I cut up 2 heads of red cabbage. I pulled out 8 cups to make a double batch of coleslaw. Coleslaw is a semi-rare treat around here. This was SO pretty going together!!
The rest was layered in a 9x13 pan with salt & whey for kraut.
I also decided to try escabeche after seeing this recipe. It went into cold storage yesterday. It smells absolutely YUMMY! I'm looking forward to trying it! Again, this was so colourful & pretty!
Dinners started out bland after being sick. Chicken & rice; beef short ribs, mashed potatoes & watermelon (we've had a LOT of watermelon this past week to help combat dehydration); and yesterday we were able to eat spaghetti. I still have some cheats in my kitchen until my energy returns, but as it does, those cheats slowly will be weaned away again. Thankfully those cheats are organic, HFCS-free, natural, etc.
And totally off topic & not in the kitchen, I couldn't resist showing you this picture. We are loving this little critter.
