HOUSECLEANING at Cookbook Of The Day

I could be cooking...


In the past two weeks my phone has been out for 5 days.

My electricity has gone off 4 days right in the middle of the day...

which in turn means my computer has been off in addition to the cloudy days where I suffer from satellite outages.

THEREFORE: We are often posting late and in clumps so we can get everything on. Do forgive us...

I have enough trouble posting comments on other people's blogs and don't always think to look back at them.
Here are some comments we especially loved and wanted to share with you.

mamacita had further recommendations from our post on Baked. She says try their versions of Peanut Butter Pie and Chocolate Pie. The Baked boys also have a blog so check that out here. mamacita has the blog, What Would Jane Austen Do? Check it out.

Dean had this to say about our A Sacred Feast post: "Dinner on the grounds" is one of the great reasons to go to a southern singing! If you want to do Sacred Harp singing, anywhere in the country (and a few places not in the country), check out fasola.org for an extensive list of regular singings.

little augry wanted a few more recipes from Darling, You Shouldn't Have Gone To So Much Trouble.

Here are a couple of famous contributors:

Marianne Faithfull
Different Sweet/ Sour Pork

Pork fillet
Brown sugar
Garlic, mashed
Lemon, thinly sliced

Pound garlic and salt. Grill the pork on one side, turn and spread the garlic on the uncooked side, sprinkle liberally with brown sugar and return to the grill. Just before it is cooked, remove from the heat and cover with paper-thin slices of lemon. Grill for a few minutes longer until the lemon becomes soft and delicious.

Marianne was doing a bit of heroin during this period... I rather like the "cook until done" aspect of this recipe. And I do love the instruction about cooking the lemon until they are "soft and delicious." I need a "delicious" tester for my kitchen.

Roald Dahl
Norwegian Cauliflower

1 cauliflower
1 bag of frozen prawns or shrimp
Béchamel Sauce

Make a béchamel sauce. Add the defrosted prawns. Pour his mixture over the cooked cauliflower. A traditional Norwegian dish, easy to make and delicious. A great supper for children.

Who knew. I make a variation of this as a planned-over pasta sauce. Check out my recipe at Lucindaville. Check here for a "revolting recipes" from Dahl.


We began experimenting with Cookbook Of The Day a year ago. We posted some scattered posts before we got officially into the grove. I am out of town for a few days so we are going to re-post some of our old Thanksgiving posts with some new ones to get you prepared for the holidays.
