I have been reading my great friend's blog http://thingsthatfizz.blogspot.com/2010/04/love-crab-hate-crab.html by the Great AV, and it is only one of his vast blogs~all a great read!
click on the title, and it will take you to Things that Fizz.
AV is a very good cook and is constantly broad-minded my horizons as to different tastes that can go together.
So this is where I was tonight. I had pissed in all the cheerios that I had planned for the day.
And it being Easter and seeing the movie Alice in wonderland, and feeling like I was home, and that I had lost something when I left the theater, I was out of sorts.
so I had a late start, like 5pm.
I had some red pepper bisque recently and it was very metallic, as they used heavy cream. I am trying to stay away from milk products except cheese and yoghurt. I love coconut milk and products.
so I baked some red peppers (7) and potatoes(2Lbs) that were on sale. when they were done I took coconut milk and coconut milk powder (as I would be too runny) and hand blendered it all together then added precooked de-veined shrimp. hint, blender all of the solids to purée before adding the milks. and ya know what? it is faboo!
the metallic taste disappeared.
I also made fried egg sandwiches, and polenta with cheese, sausage and basil red sauce. too salty for my tastes, everyone else liked it.
I like using my own ingredients that I make but sometimes I give up taste for convenience, plus I suck at making polenta.
so happy men, full bellies, and a better Easter than it started.
I actually can't wait to sleep tonight last nights dreams while very disturbing, were nice.
it is always a nice change to have them this side of horrific than the other side...
sleep well all!
