The first of likely many iterations of ground beef and sauerkraut soup!

We had a bad (mean, misbehaved) cow who went to freezer camp, resulting in at least 100 lbs of ground beef, and I also accidentally made like 3 gallons of sauerkraut (from Laughing Crow cabbage and onions) this year. So this winter will be [...]

What I learned on Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Today I learned that pho restaurants can package your pho for takeout, with all the various things in different compartments, and even with little packets of hoisin and sriracha.

Actually I learned this in theory last Tuesday when I had lunch (pho, but we ate in) with friend Amy. I mentioned that I was sad [...]

I brought home one of the pork steaks I got at the farmers’ market, frozen and well-wrapped in my carry-on luggage.

Served with Laughing Crow cabbage and [...]

I also got some green garlic and some parsley from a different booth, some cremini mushrooms from a mushroom farm, and a few lovely [...]

I made magically delicious soup! with homemade Italian sausage, homegrown kale and carrot, leek from the one place at Pike Place Market whose name [...]

Leftover black bean, ham, and parsnip soup.

What I had for dinner on Sunday, February 5, 2012

Random stuff in the fridge included a bunch of home-cured, home-smoked sliced ham from an island-grown pig (though not ours). G. suggested it might go in a bean soup. I noted that we had no carrots, but a whole bunch of storebought parsnips, then went upstairs to get some stuff done.

A couple hours later, [...]
