¡Me estoy sonrojando!


I spent the day in the kitchen…

for breakfast, French Toast, which I learned many decades ago is called “lost bread”in Louisiana…likely because that is what they use the “bread-past-its-prime” to make. I used fresh Oat grain bread, because I have two loaves of it, fresh from the co-op yesterday and I wanted to try it out before freezing the other loaf. Romeo pronounced it fabulous…even without the grape jelly he said he used growing up. I mentally gagged when he said it. The purist way is with honey or syrup…in these days it is sugar-free, but at least it is sugar free Maple. He added blackstrap molasses to his and I a touch of local honey to mine. Since neither the molasses or honey is sugar free sometimes think  “why bother” with the syrup being sugar free…Next, I dragged down the super duper food processor and in almost less time than it took to get the zucchini from the ‘fridge, it was perfectly shredded and in a bowl with  the ingredients for Zucchini Bread. While the loaves were baking,I soaked dishes and gathered things to make Salsa Fresca, to accompany the shrimp which would be simply boiled and served with corn on the cob and purple cabbage slaw. Our desert is strawberry shortcake drowning in fresh strawberries and whipped cream. I almost cannot wait!  All of this cooking before noon and after spending hours yesterday making homemade Green Tomatillo Sauce, and homemade tortilla chips for a future dish of Chicken Enchiladas we will have for later this upcoming week. Since I still work fulltime and Romeo is retired, the preparation of the evening meal falls to him. Having the sauce prepared in advance(and quite delicious, too!) the meal come together quickly for him after spending a day in the garden. I like to help my beloved out as much as possible in the kitchen on the weekends…it’s what I do; it’s who I am.
