I am ready for him to get here and stay for awhile; I’ll invite him in for a cup of chai or coffee, whichever he prefers.
I like colder weather because I can bundle myself up in close layers. Even though I am practically cold blooded, I think I belong in chilly climates. Sundresses are wonderful, but this season they have worn out their welcome and are waiting patiently in my closet for when I again need the freedom they offer.
As I was watching this video I thought what in the world is kinishus? Well, for starters it’s knishes and it looks delicious. So, I’ve decided that later today if I’m hungry enough I’ll make this. I’m not going to use the recipe the blogger I got the photograph from used. I found another one here that uses chicken.
|Mix all ingredients and form into smooth dough and roll it to 1/8 inch thicknessFilling:
Mix all ingredients and spread on dough.
Roll the dough like a jelly roll and press edges together. Place in a pan greased with hot oil and bake in a 350 degree oven until brown and crisp.
If I will actually follow this recipe correctly is another matter. I do so enjoy adding things in that aren’t really supposed to be there. I’ve never had this dish before, so I don’t know how it should taste, but I’m going for it regardless.

Almost sounds suspiciously like a Ted Dekker series doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. It’s part of my lunch! I absolutely relish eating raw foods, especially fruits and vegetables. (I haven’t branched out to raw meat.)
Red- Cherry tomatoes
White- a dab of natural ranch here and there
Green- The best of them all, freshly snapped home-grown green beans
Can you say delicious or what? I also have sweet tea waiting for me too that I’m planning to have with some red and green! No not Christmas decorations, silly, I don’t even celebrate Christmas. They’re grapes and strwberries. What wonderfully tasteful fruits we have been blessed with.
Nom it up!

I don’t know why I’m so riveted by food recently so bear with me, haha. This post is inspired by my rush to make lunch before I had to go to work in 25 minutes (then I realised I didn’t have to leave for another hour halfway through rushing lunch…)
What you need:
1 bundle somen noodles
dash of soy sauce
dash of fried rice seasoning package
Yes, this is basically ramen for people who don’t have ramen. Boil water add noodles and boil them for 2 minutes, remove and RINSE. (I forgot.) Add soy sauce and seasoning package to taste. Nom it up!

Half the fun of cooking for me is not following a recipe. I’m still in the very early stages of exploration and as you might know, I like pasta. A lot. So today, I’m sure it’s no surprise that I’m working with pasta again.
I’m using penne rigate with an olive oil sauce. I’ve got my water going before I start my sauce because oil bases sauces don’t need as long to cook as cheese and milk sauces. I’ll let my pasta boil for about five minutes before I start the sauce. Most recipes it seems to say cook al dente, but my family prefers slightly softer noodles.
For the sauce:
3/4 cup of red bell pepper, diced finely
1 spring onion
2.5 Tablespoons butter
Olive oil, about 1/2 cup or less
garlic, basil (lots), oregano (not so much), salt, pepper, and cayenne (just a dash), fennel
Sautee bell pepper and onion in butter (be careful not to burn butter), then add garlic. Then add olive oil, basil, salt, pepper, cayenne, etc. seasoning to taste. I added some olive oil to my pasta to help it not stick so much; it seems to be working so far. The last time I made pasta (I’ll post that one later, it was so tasty) I made a béchamel sauce and the pasta stuck terribly.
