Another thing I can do that will annoy The Wife

September 1st, 2009

I recently stumbled across an article describing how to make home made butter. I’m sure I’ll wind up making this sometime soon.  One thing I noticed in his recipe is how he removes the moisture from the butter.  Instead of just using bare hands, it would probably be worth it to try using cheese cloth instead.   Wrap the butter in the cloth and keep twisting the top until the butter is nice and dry.  This will get you a larger yield of butter milk which can then be turned into pancakes and waffles.  This is one way to keep the wife happy.

Western Beef

July 8th, 2009

One of the things I want to try is going to Western Beef. There is one about a 10 minute drive from me. I think about going in whenever I pass it on my way to Williamsburg. First off, there’s the name. Nothing sounds better than mixing the Wild West and my grocery shopping. Recently, I found out that they tend to have a walk in freezer section for the meat, just like the Hilltop back in Braintree, MA. The main reason I have never stopped in is because it just doesn’t look like a clean place to get groceries. Also, it’s in a bit of a rundown industrial area. To be fair, Hilltop wasn’t exactly the cleanest of places, and I loved going there. So maybe I should just suck it up and go next weekend.

Experiments

July 8th, 2009

One of the reasons I started this blog is to keep track of some of my experiments, both the failures and successes. The next logical step is to keep track of the things I haven’t done yet, but want to. So many times, I come across recipes or ideas that sound worthwhile, only to forget about them a week later. If this were a magazine, I’d create a weekly column for these ideas. But this is a blog, so I’m introducing a new tag: Things to Eat.

TTE will feature various ideas, like making my own mayonnaise from scratch or trying a new type of gin. I will update you an article tagged with Things I Ate. If the TTE tag grows faster than the TIA tag, then I’m a lazy failure.

Let the experiments begin.
