I've never understood all the people who insist they don't like tofu. It's worse than saying you can't stand iceberg lettuce. I don't want to eat iceberg lettuce, but only because it has no nutritional value and doesn't taste like anything, so instead, I eat fancier lettuce and get both vitamins and flavor. But tofu doesn't taste like anything and serves a purpose.
And it's absorbent... it tastes like what you put on it. Moreso than any meat product - I could marinate chicken all day and it'd never be as flavorful or versatile as tofu.
So I need to pick a CSA. As I discussed when I thought I was starting this blog back up last year, 2010 was my first time with a farmshare/CSA. It was wonderful and overwhelming. I got piles of produce.
Well that looks a bit sad, but I didn't know I was writing a food blog when I made the pizza, so poorly taken photos of leftovers is what we have.
Here's my dough "recipe":
First a note - you have to want it. If you can get a ball of dough in the deli case for $1.29, ask yourself, what are you saving and why. Why do you want to spend three hours on dough? Also, I'm not good with recipes. I feel like I should give you more info than "do this then that".
[Edited to add: There's a step-by-step version of this, with photographs, here.]
Saturday's Mouse is a fairly disgusting name for a food blog. Yet still hilarious. I'll leave up the story about the mouse for context. It's not food related.
I sent Archana my pizza dough recipe and she suggested I write a food blog? But there are a million food blogs, and those people cook better than me. And there are already excellent snarky food blogs in a voice similar to mine. Like Anger Burger and Bread and Honey (ok she hardly posts anymore). Besides, nearly a year ago when I last updated this, I almost went in that direction. So if you want better food blogging, with as much foul language as I use, go look there. If you want to know what I cooked today, you can look here.
So ok, food blogging. Besides, I'm at a fun place with food. I need to pick a CSA, and I'm in that place in winter where all my veg are frozen anyhow and I have to make stuff up. Because fresh veg speak for themselves, but frozen veg need a lot of talking to.
