I decided to make a list of fasting recipes to have on hand when I run out of ideas. I've gone through this blog to find recipes of my own as well as links to other recipes I have made or intend to make. I will continue to add to this list as time goes on. I've added notes as to whether or not I've made them before and how I liked them.
Portobello herb pizza - Ok, could use some changes, mushrooms were too dry so next time I'd toss them with oil, s&p, and roast separately then put on pizza and serve cold.
Mushroom palm heart pasta - Bleh, not making this again, I'm not a big fan of pasta with plain tomato sauce, or acidic things, and the canned palm hearts were too acidic for my taste.
Homemade hummus - Haven't made yet, looks amazing, will have to make it soon!
Teriyaki noodles with spinach and smoked oysters - It was ok, I seem to have left out the recipe but it's pretty simple, just boil some noodles and then fry them with teriyaki sauce, or fry and then add the sauce after, I'm not too sure which way I did it, then add spinach and canned smoked oysters.
Snowflakes Are Falling is an album that my dad bought before I was born. Apparently my parents listened to it while I was still in my mom's belly, and I remember dancing to it with homemade maracas made of popsicle sticks, empty egg cartons, raisin glossettes, and tape :P
I like to think that this is what got me to loving electronica/techno. This album is really nostalgic for me. When I listened to it a few years ago after not having heard it since my childhood it gave me goosebumps. So eerie and beautiful and weird and exciting :D Soundtrack of my life. Here's the playlist of it I made on Youtube:
I couldn't find track #7, Passepied, on Youtube so I downloaded the mp3 and figured out how to add it to a video I took and uploaded it to youtube myself. The album is now complete! The image you see on tracks #4 and #5 is the original record album cover art. My parents still have the record.
I found a really yummy sounding hummus recipe that I wanna try out soon. It takes a few hours of soaking and simmering so I won't be able to do it tonight (well maybe the soaking part if I can find a grocery store on the way to the gym) but definitely soon.
Just read this article about country hams in the states. Now I want some ham! It was interesting to read this article, it goes into detail about the aging process and the breeds of pigs used. There are actually a few breeders here in Quebec that raise Durocs and Berkshires, the Vignoble Cote des Limousins raises Berkshires. I should have asked for some of the local ham when I went to the Charcuterie de Tours at the Atwater Market last Friday. I'll have to ask them what breed of pig it's from.
