Another morning picture

This is another quick handheld picture with my Canon 60D.

If I look closely there is always something to take a picture of.

Pandemic wine is bottled

It’s nothing special, but it’s nice for a home brew. It was actually ready to bottle a couple weeks ago, but we were a little busy to get to it.

Hopefully those extra days clearing will reduce the aging a bit so we can start drinking it on the patio.

Not all baking works out – cookies

They are flat

Not all baking works out all the time. This weekend my two cookie projects didn’t work out at all. The second recipe is pictured above.

I’m not sure what I did wrong, but it may have been beaten too much or the pan was in the wrong place in the oven.

It was my first time trying this recipe in many moons.

These are recipes from a recipe book my primary teach put together. I tweeted about it a couple weeks ago.

Distancing Supper – Pork Shoulder

Over the last week we have been eating great. Batch cooking some days, and scratch cooking others.

Yesterday we had no idea what we were going to have and that turned into this. Roasted pork shoulder from the freezer, corn fried in pork fat, onions, garlic powder and some herbs, canned black beans and a little bit of feta.

It was as delicious as it looks.

Coffee as a break

Coffee with a chemex

My typical method for a cup of coffee is the aero press you can see behind, but sometimes we need a very nice pour-over.

Today’s attempt at bread

I made bread yesterday too, but today’s looks a lot better.

Yesterday’s attempt wasn’t kneaded enough and I used too much flour on the board when I was punching down and forming the loaf.
