Quesadillas made with the rest of last night’s Jordanian chicken, Tillamook cheddar, and a few slices of my first cheddar (!! proper post coming later).

Chicken verdict: still delicious. Possibly even more so.

More chili cheese dogs. I can never decide if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that hot dogs come in packs of four (and we therefore have leftovers).

We went to G’s folks’ house for low-key not-really-xmas. They broiled some lovely wild salmon, and served it with a homegrown (by them!) homemade green tomato chutney. There was also bok choy with oyster sauce; brown rice; and delicious sweet potato oven fries.

We brought many types of cheese for snacking, including my homemade homegrown [...]

Oh, not much, just some random stuff from the freezer.

Oh wait, just kidding, I forgot.

We started with some of the cooking on Tuesday and Wednesday, but did most of it during the day on Thursday. It was just the two of us for dinner, which was great — it ended up being pretty [...]

I keep writing “October” in the title of these. Not sure why I am so stuck on October. Maybe I am just resisting November.

G. made delicious chili with Alvarez Farms pinto beans, Kitsap-grown delicious ground beef, Laughing Crow onions and LC/homegrown garlic, storebought organic chili powder, and a cube or two of homemade [...]

Spaghetti carbonara, G.-style (i.e. bastardized, I’m pretty sure): fry up bacon nubbins (home-cured, Island grown). Boil pasta (storebought organic). Grate a mess of parmigiano cheese and beat in a few eggs (homegrown) — I like at least three for a pound of pasta. As soon as the pasta is done and drained, add the cheese-egg [...]

Laughing Crow onion, LC/homegrown garlic, homegrown carrot, sautéed. I roasted a beautiful head of Leapfrog Farm broccoli in the oven — including the leaves and stems, please do not throw those out, people! they are delicious — at 375º, checking on it every ~8 minutes until it looked toasty and smelled done. When the [...]

Leftover soup with grilled cheese sandwiches made of Pane d’Amore whole-wheat sourdough bread with Beecher’s Flagship cheddar and homegrown Stupice tomatoes and fresh homegrown chèvre cheese.

Leftover beef stew, with grilled-cheese sandwiches made with Beecher’s Flagship cheddar (omg, love it) on Pane d’Amore‘s miche made of Nash’s rye and wheat.

We also made and canned this spicy tomato peach jam, which I am very much looking forward to eating on a Flagship cheddar grilled cheese on a blustery day in winter. [...]

A couple days ago I successfully made goat cheese (chèvre) finally. (I have had several batches of failcheese.) We keep the whey when we drain the cheese, and a fellow farmer out here mentioned that she uses the whey as a soup base for like a potato leek soup. But I have also heard that [...]
