Chit Chat / What are you cooking today?
« on: June 02, 2020, 11:37:57 am »
I cooked my rye SD today. I also made a Cobb loaf to turn into a Picnic Loaf tomorrow.

I also made Teninaís Almond Chunky Monkey Icecream. Itís made using frozen bananas.

Another thought is check the Laucke website for their recipes and maybe also All About Bread.
They are over the river and quite a fair bit away from me, but I go out their occasionally to buy rye flour as 5kg lasts me a while. I buy Laucke in 10kg, that lasts me round a month.

Judy, I have just made a half mix of this as I need a Cobb loaf. I was a bit unsure if I should use this. I now have it rising in a casserole dish ready to bake later on.
I think you could use your mix in any bread recipe, just being aware that you may need more water. Chookie will be the expert, Iím a recipe follower.
This recipe of Amandaís says to add water to the dough. I didnít measure what I added this morning. It was just enough to make a firm, sticky dough.

I just tried to use the link above and it didnít work. This one should work.

Iím just about to start a loaf.

Bread / Potato Rolls (with photo)

I made a batch of these today to use up some left over mashed potato. I was really pleased. They have a lovely soft centre and the crust remains crunchy.

I set out to make this a couple of days ago and although I have celery seeds I didnít have nutritional yeast. 🙄🙄🙄🙄

Jams and Chutneys / Re: Rhubarb Freezer Jam

This is interesting Marina. Iíve made jams using chia to thicken it but they must be eaten within a week or two. This is certainly a fruit jam. I guess you could use any fruit.

Margaret what a damn nuisance. Keep hounding them.
My silver lining for today is that the recipe to use up the mashed potato was so successful.

I had some mashed potato left over and wanted to use it in some bread. I ended up making these rolls from farfallina.
They have a lovely texture and the crust stays crunchy.

We had Satay Chicken tonight and last night we had Chicken, Cheese and Pea pie things from the new pie book I bought.

Stay warm everyone. JulieO the Coles special buys will be interesting. I wonder what they will offer.

Thanks for that. I love to hear what you and JulieO have been doing with the 6.

That is nice of you Chookie. He will be very happy to receive them.

I haven't done a lot today. DD and a friend braved it out to a restaurant today. They had their booking put back by half an hour because the previous people wouldn't leave. When they got in there the place was very crowded. They are both very conscientious of the social isolating which is still on here. They asked the manager about it and she said she wouldn't do anything about it. When the girls said they would leave, she asked where they worked, naturally the reply was Health. I think the poor woman will now be expecting a visit from the Health department. ;D ;D ;D ;D The girls didn't report it, simply went elsewhere.

My silver lining today is the fact that DD had the courage to speak up at the restaurant.
