Pinned toot

OK, so, on this account I *will* be posting about food and soft drinks, and boosting toots about food and soft drinks, mostly without CW.

It's a food-dedicated instance.

I will definitely not be offended if you need to mute or block this account as a result!

(I'll still CW for alcohol, and I won't boost my un-CW'd food toots from my alt accounts.)

exercise 

Starting to get fed up of my local walk options -- a bit stressful trying to keep distance. People are being pretty good about it, but it's still a mental load I dislike.

I'm going to switch my daily exercise to "going to the allotment" because once I'm there, distancing is easy and I have stuff to do. Also there is a shed to keep the rain off, though it's pretty dark and dank in there.

SO, I read on that there internets that you can make adequate fruit sorbet by freezing an unopened tin of fruit in syrup for twelve hours or so (or just keeping it in the freezer), standing it in hot water long enough to thaw enough to open, and whacking it in a food processor/blender/etc.

I am trying this. For Science, and because pear sorbet.

Sowed celeriac, lettuce, and butternut squash 'Baby Bush' (a little early but I have swarm spot for them).

Oh! And I did add a tsp of salt since my peanut butter was unsalted, but it's not super necessary.

Made peanut butter cookies.

1c peanut butter (I used natural unsalted)
1c brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1c flour
2tsp baking powder
1tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to ~175°C.

Mix peanut butter, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Add baking powder and cinnamon to flour and mix them a bit, then add to wet ingredients. Form into small balls, place on cookie sheet a good 5 or 6cm apart. Flatten with fork.

Bake 8-10 minutes.

Cooked down two huge handfuls of three-cornered leek into two tiny jars (I think they're 50ml but they're downstairs and I don't wanna go check). The season for it is nearly over. I'll freeze it to use in soup or rice later in the year.

Cycling to allotment soon, where none of my weeds are edible.

So, I have a Bandcamp page with some old recordings on it:

But my brother's band is *also* there! COVID-19 stuff is hitting him pretty hard, both of his dayjobs have dwindled to almost nothing.

Went for a walk around the houses (not the forest) in daylight for once. Found three-cornered leek in a raised planter two blocks from home. Very pleased: it's above dog-wee height, and the stuff is ridiculously invasive and hardy so I'm really unlikely to pick too much. So I brought home a good handful, of course.

Thinking about what to make with it for supper. Quiche maybe, or soufflé? We have eggs that want using.

The wild garlic I planted last year is alive! Ate two leaves in my haphazard lunch side salad. Tasty.

Haphazard lunch side salad, homegrown ingredients:
- pea shoots from windowsill peas
- self-seeded chervil
- spring onion
- celery stalk
- wild garlic (ie ramsons/ramps)
Purchased ingredients:
- a smallish carrot
- furikake
- balsamic vinegar
- smol cucumber that had definitely seen better days

Tasty.
