|First: this wonderful gift -- a Mona Lisa Scrubee. Plus Starry Night too.|
Thanks Arny & Tracy!
|From Trader Joe's: Langostino Tails, which were delicious and tender.|
|From Ikea: mustard with dill.|
|Quadratini are good cookies! Ate them in 2 days.|
|Ikea Müsli with raspberries and Keffir.|
|A few condiments: two salsas, apricot-rose jam, Pickapeppa sauce.|
We haven't had Pickapeppa for a while. It has a very good mild pepperiness.
|Trader Joe's Harissa Salsa is hot. Is it|
Moroccan? I don't know! But good in soup.
New for baking: two bannetons for proofing loaves:
|The ridged surface of the banneton impresses a pattern on the loaves|
as they rise. These are new in our kitchen for Len's bread-making.
|After it rises, the loaf is turned out on a peel and slashed.|
Then thrown onto a hot baking stone as quickly as possible.
|The finished loaves have a ridged pattern left by the banneton. This batch was amazingly delicious.|
