“The past couple of days has been one in which I choose not to dwell on, simply because I feel resigned to just be, to let life be, and what comes my way….well I’ll be thankful for sure, appreciative of course! Mostly I’ll be stronger, for my strength makes me who I am, who I choose to become.”
I like the idea of putting together something really quick and easy, I don’t like overly long cooking or baking. It should take me 45 minutes in the kitchen on busy days……
Salad making in the process with cheese paste and loads of mustard just the way I like it
The salad is basic, tomatoes, shredded cabbage, red onions, local green lettuce. With garlic and olive oil dressing.
Whole some mini buns
2 cups all-purpose flour (self rising flour)
1 packet of instant yeast
smidgen of cinnamon
1 table-spoon sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix together in a large bowl to allow for expansion, after half hour (1/2) roll into mini balls and sit for 15-20 minutes covered with a damp towel, bake at 350 for 20 minutes. I love these with Jam, custard for my sweet tooth, of course!
My one main Fetish …..yep I love baking bread , there’s no big science behind it. I really enjoy it and it relaxes me. (got to score on that one)
- Rosemary infused
- Cinnamon and sugar
- White Ciabatta
- Raisin and carrot
- Whole wheat
- Pumpkin seed with oregano
This list goes on….. these, however, are by far my favourites.
After the dough has risen to twice the volume in size and already in the pan, I use a very sharp knife to make the slits on top, then either olive oil infused with rosemary or my go to cinnamon mix sprinkle on top for added flare.
place in brown paper bag and can be kept in the refrigerator for a week or less. Always best though, fresh from the oven with butter and cheese. Enjoy:)
My Grandmother used to cook this with green pawpaw better known to many as Papaya.It tasted great then and more so now cause I remember her every time I cook it.
In a saute pan heat olive oil, add crushed ginger, garlic, onion salt & pepper until slightly translucent. Add carrots and allow carrots to cook with a bit of crunch.
Cut bell peppers into strips and add to pan, stirring lightly, add smoked bones and allow to steam with lid on. After 5 mins add thyme leaves, stir and serve with Rice or provisions.
