I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

And Just Where the Hell Have YOU Been?

Hi.  It's been 20 days.  And honestly, I'm surprised it hasn't been more.  I've been very busy.  With what?  Well, I'll tell you.  With Ice Cream.  I've been making pint after pint after pint of ice cream.  It is my legacy, it's my calling, and it turns out I'm damn good at making it.  

Now I'm trying to figure out how to start a business (man, are business plans boring), acquire equipment, and find investors.  I don't know how to do any of this, but I'm sure excited to learn.

I'll be back, talking about food and other stuff, but right now I've got to focus a little.  I'll give you a link when my new site is up.

In the meantime, my house smells awesome because this is in the crock pot.

Carrot Parsnip Sunchoke Cakes

My CSA is giving me lots of ideas and new ingredients to play with.  The first week I got sunchokes and parsnips.  Here's what I did with them:

Carrot Parsnip Sunchoke Cakes, two ways.

1) Chop and steam veggies

Mash 'em with a fork

Dredge in flour, salt and pepper

2) Grate veggies, mix with one egg

One egg to rule them all, and in the darkness bind them.

Side by side taste test.  Both delicious.  I liked the toothiness of the grated one better.

Also good with bacon and eggs.*

*of course.
