God has blessed us with such and abundance of food! This is the meal we had a couple nights ago. And I'll tell ya...it was all Richie's idea to take pictures of it (something he immensely enjoyed.) He wanted to do this so bad that he even stopped in the middle of his dinner to do so.
His motivation? He wants all of you to be able to enjoy this kind of home-grown food too.
That's why he wants me to post all of the recipes for this meal. So, that's what I'll do :-)
This is the real thing...a home-grown grass-fed burger on a home-ground wheat bun with home-made sauerkraut and mayo. Garden-grown (except for the onions) coconut oil Wok-cooked veggies and potato Joes.
Bread 6 C. Water, 3 TB yeast, 3/4 c. honey, 2 tsp salt, flour, 1/2 c. coconut oil or shortening
Mix together warm water and yeast. Add honey and salt. Mix in enough flour to make a standard bread-dough consistency. Knead in the oil, adding more flour if necessary. Let rise 1 hr. Roll into 3-inch balls and flatten them on a cookie sheet. Let rise 30 min. Bake 350 for 15-20 minutes
Mayonnaise 2 egg yolks, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp mustard, 1/8 tsp sugar, pinch cayenne pepper, 4-5 tps vinegar 1 C. oil, 4 tsp hot water. Buzz all ingredients but oil and water in food processor or blender. Drizzle in oil and water alternately in a VERY small stream (almost drip-by drip.) Mixture should thicken to the consistancy of store-bought mayonnaise. If it separates and looks gross, you've poured in your oil too fast and nothing you do will salvage it :-(
WOK Veggies Heat your coconut oil in the WOK. Add chopped veggies of any sort (This time of year we really love a mix of Onions, Carrots, Kohlrabi, Broccoli, and when in season, Cucumbers and Zucchini. Sprinkle in some seasoned salt. Cook over high heat until all caramelized and delicious. It's so sweet, it's like eating candy!
Found another neat recipe on Pinterest yesterday an gave it a try.
This may be, perhaps, Daddy's worst nightmare. Banana Ice Cream. Nothing BUT banana ice cream. Clever, huh?!
It's ridiculously simple, and a great thing to do with bananas that are starting to get mushy.
Freeze the banana in slices
Blend them up in a food processor with a little milk. It takes a little while to get them all blended up, but I didn't smell that burning rubber smell (which usually means you're burning up the food processor's engine.) lol So it must not have been all that awful bad.
Isn't that just beautiful? --->
At this point you can add vanilla or chocolate syrup for chocolate ice-cream. It's so light and fluffy!
