Whatcha Got Cooking?

Themes on blogs seem to be falling into categories lately. Travels home, shopping lists, isolation activities, pets and what’s cooking! Here is what was being cleaned, chopped, combined, cooked and/or eaten today at my house. No, I didn’t eat all of this. Some of it I just cooked.

Strangely enough, when I copied the above photos onto the media file, this song just added itself. I promise. I had nothing to do with it, but since it has to do with food, I’m letting it stay. I was just thinking I wish I had some chocolate as I used the last of mine on the popcorn above. Words to this song are by me. Music and performance by Christine Anfossie.

    I can’t click on it but reminds me of the Smothers Brothers song about falling in a vat of chocolate. Everything looks delicious. I’m making chicken and dumplings today.

      grated cabbage and grated carrots, cut in tinier pieces after grating, apples, dried cranberries, pimento green olives, chopped walnuts or almonds if I don’t have walnuts, celery sometimes, if I have it. All chopped into tiny pieces. The dressing is balsamic vinaigrette mixed with oriental sweet chili sauce and blue cheese dressing..and mix it into the salad. It will keep so much longer and the apples don’t go brown. I’ve had it last for two weeks! The cabbage won’t last this long on its own. Cover well and refrigerate. I have never served this to anyone who hasn’t loved it. With company, there is never any left. The secret is to cut everything small and to mix it well so every bite contains a bit of each ingredient.

      The weirdest part is the olives with the cranberries but I swear it is better with them. Originally I made it without them but one day just added them for the heck of it and zing went the dish!!! The sweet chili sauce you find in the Asian aisle of the market.
