Cooking my traditional Saturday-after-Thanksgiving Mock Terrapin Soup. (Based loosely on the mock turtle soup recipe from the 1964 edition of the Joy of Cooking.)
Seabreeze with two-thirds regular vodka, one-third cucumber vodka makes a sea-cucumber breeze. Jackie likes it.
I could have sworn
I could have sworn trademarked hot sauces weren’t invented until the neolithic. (Does look yummy.) https://paleomagonline.com/spicy-buffalo-chicken-meatballs/ #paleo #recipes
Uncle Phil’s long grain and wild rice
(Inspired by Uncle Ben’s, but more to my taste, using ingredients we tend to have on hand.)
⅛ cup wild rice
½ cup water
Bring water to a boil, add wild rice, cover, reduce heat to simmer.
Cook on low heat for 50 minutes. Set aside, along with any remaining liquid.
1 cup water
1 T butter
1½ tsp Better than Bouillon (or any bouillon you use)
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried minced onion
1 tsp minced garlic
½ tsp basil
½ tsp sage
½ stalk finely chopped celery
⅛ tsp turmeric
⅛ tsp paprika
½ cup long grain white rice
Combine water, butter, bouillon, and spices in a sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add white rice, stir in wild rice (along with any remaining liquid), cover, reduce to a simmer.
Simmer until the white rice has absorbed the liquid, about 20 minutes.
Turmeric and paprika are for color, and this amount seems just right.
