Halal chicken with rice. I used a whole (hg, of course) chicken, parted out — drumsticks, thighs, and breasts all separated. It took longer to cook than I thought. Otherwise I did everything according to the recipe and/or my previous post. It was extremely delicious.
The duck recipe from the other day had called for a 4-ish-lb duck, but I had a nearly-8-lb duck, so I hemmed and hawed about whether to cut it in half and save the other half for something else, or to cook the whole thing and then have cooked duck to go in other recipes. [...]
Goulash/paprikas thing with sauerkraut and sour cream.
Kitsap-grown ground beef; Laughing Crow onion that we sweated and then froze in bags; Laughing Crow cabbage and onions in homemade sauerkraut; some storebought spices (mostly paprika); homegrown homemade goat sour cream. Served over spaetzle made with homegrown eggs and goat milk, and storebought organic flour. Thanks again, [...]

When we got home G. made me a turkey club sandwich, with leftover homegrown turkey obviously, home-cured Island-grown bacon, another Kittitas Greenhouse tomato, some Butler Green Farms salad mix, [...]

I had quite an adventure finding HFCS-free buns. A couple of months ago I could [...]
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 [...]
Ground beef and sauerkraut paprikás thing.
Kitsap ground beef, Laughing Crow onion, Laughing Crow cabbage home-fermented into sauerkraut, etc. Homemade spaetzle with organic flour, homegrown eggs, homegrown milk.
Served also with homegrown kale sautéed with homegrown/Laughing Crow garlic and a bit of Island-grown home-smoked ham for seasoning.
Homemade gourmet sloppy joes!! Made by G.
Kitsap ground beef, Laughing Crow onion, LC/homegrown garlic. Homemade ketchup chutney thing, improvised, since when I made it, I had not a can of diced tomatoes but rather quite a lot of tomato juice left over from canning whole tomatoes. I used the same spices, but to taste [...]
I switched almost all of my accounts to a credit union today, for Bank Transfer Day/Bank Transfer Day! Hooray.
Pretty sure my credit score is going to take a hit as I close a couple of cards with $0 balance and $10k+ limit, and all I get from my new CU is one single card [...]
