no rhyme no reason


A
hodgepodge of delectables. What do you call insalata caprese with cucumber? I made Girlichefs cheese and it took me a couple tries to get it right. The first batch was glorified ricotta - I put it in a press after innoculating it with blue cheese cultures and we shall see what happens in a few weeks. I dont know what went wrong but the second batch came together like clockwork. Nothing beats homemade! Next time, though, I will microwave it one less time - it did come out a little dense.



How about ramen noodle with egg and a chicken wing?



Or how about a totally mangled ensalada de bacalao with sweet plantains, cucumber and cherry tomatoes?

I like the addition of cukes.

Ramen with an egg sounds like the breakfast of champions.

OK. Sure! Whatever you got.

That egg in the Ramon looks like something even I could do.

I too have had trouble making mozzarella. I finally gave up. What was the change you made that led to such obvious success? GREG

No idea what the Bacaalo is...but it looks very persuasively good.

I call a caprese salad with cucumber - TASTY. The ramen takes me back to my college days although I couldn't afford a chicken wing... or an egg for that matter.

Mustard and jerky on the way... along with some original packaging- I'm an engineering type, as you will see!

Hungry Dog said...

I'll eat ramen with a chicken wing any day of the week.

Am loving this excellent idea of adding cucumber's crunchy texture to the insalata caprese!

That chicken wing & egg ramen looks like my staple food! haha

Jenn said...

That caprese looks really good. Love the cucumbers in it. The ramen and chicken look mighty good, too. I'm still a bit apprehensive about making my own cheese. But I will eventually try it one day!
