random/mash-up/2O2O

Expected to blog more during the pandemic, not true, those of us who value a simple limited social contact lifestyle have endured the pandemic with ease. Technology has permitted us to have goods and services delivered, with the need to venture out of our dwellings not necessary. Those who have found the working from a home sanctuary may choose to continue to use the services they adopted during these times such as on line shopping , education and increased social media contacts.

Just some random pictures. (some may be pictures previously posted)

shall we view food first? This turned into a 2O2O recap, I haven’t taken many pictures or posted as often as before.

Egg and sausage

A food processor makes a quick task of making sausage meat, a bit of pork diced to facilitate chopping then add spices of what you like. I added some bacon for the fat content and other  spices and herbs. Stored in a plastic bag refrigerated at least overnight gives me fresh sausage meat to use in recipes or alone as a patty.

Eeeeewww, liver !

As I prepared this breakfast it reminded me of the opening of an old TV series where the medical students as part of their training are required to witness an autopsy. Several of them faint. Not to curb your  appetite,  by telling this story, some,  like  chefs  can continue in their field even though they are adverse to parts of the  trade or decide that they will cater to a certain food group.

What’s  this got to do with liver ? I would not call beef liver a mainstream dish but recently a family member sourced beef liver to our kitchen from a retailer known for organic food. A bloody looking package indeed, but after a quick diced and sauté the flavor reminded me of the days of    liverwerst,   a deli favorite.

Some bread was diced and fried in butter and garlic, reserved, and some sautéed onions followed, along with dill.

Placed in a small oven proof container , two eggs beaten was added, yes I know cheese is usually in the mix, but keeping it light here. Low power in the microwave for several minutes till fluffed. (BTW a sprinkle of hot red pepper flakes in the mix, salt and pepper a given  also )

Served with sour cream, chili paste and greens , a mix of light and dark roasted Mexican coffee.

Good Morning

Saturday today is a day to get up relaxed, drink some coffee and rustle up some chow without watching the clock. A cool rainy spring day. Watched the reminder of a movie from last night , Motorama , and a few episodes of Sienfield, Comedians in cars getting coffee.

this morning’s blend

Mexican Organic about 2/3

Indian Robusta about 1/3

Peruvian Cocoa nibs about 1/4 teaspoon

Course Grind

French Press

Simple Syrup

Milk

If you have a chance to taste Robusta , it is best blended with other varieties of coffee to produce, a tasteful blend and with the addition of cocoa nibs, a mocha flavored cup of coffee.

Coffee, new green beans purchased

Who can pass up a 10% discount that the coffee project offers during your Birthday month.  I roast my own green coffee beans.

Mexican Chiapas  6.80 /lb

El Salvador Cup Of Excellence Hermansos $7.00/lb

Uganda Bugisu AA Organic Sipi Falls $7.00/lb

Also bought Chicory  @$3.50/lb to blend with ground coffee for different flavor profiles to taste, Louisiana Style .

Roasting Notes:

El Salvador, medium dark Roast, about 10 minutes, Clear fruity flavor. Nice change from the other brand of store bought coffee beans.

Uganda, beans turn from green to yellow than to a dark brown, unmistakable first crack sound like popping corn. Have not brewed yet. 

Note: free issue of Roast Magazine SEPT/OCT 2011 has a must see article about the constructing and operation of  solar powered coffee roaster using a mirrored solar array dish to focus sunlight to produce heat to roast coffee.
