He missed the train after hiking yesterday (we won't get into why, but it's funny) and as a result, ended up with a bounty of reduced-price bread and produce.
This is about 2/3 of the original bargain bin bread bounty. We've frozen some and scarfed down the rest. Since most of the day has revolved around bread, I thought I'd make a list of things that go well with "the staff of life."
- salady stuff
- dahl and other delightful curried sauces
- sammich-type stuff
- extra-virgin fancy-pants olive oil and the vinegar of your choice
- ETA: Crabby Ful Medames
- Help a sista out here, I can't think of anything else!!!
Here's a gratuitous post of the frugal fruits and value vegetables he scored. Those bags of wee oranges were 10p a bag!
My favourite kinds of bread are rye (any kind of rye is a friend of mine) and sourdough. I've made bread a few times, but it always tastes yeasty.. My soda rolls are much better, although still nothing to write home about.
I know this isn't the most exciting post (not post with the most!), but they can't all be zingers! I think my post tomorrow shall be about kimchi jigae. Souuuuup!*
* I have a real knack for soup. Seriously. I have some weird amazing special ninja skill where I can taste soup and replicate it. I make up for this by not being able to make any bakery-type stuff without a recipe. This came in handy with this hot & sour soup I had at some citrus noodley place in San Francisco and this one sour tomato soup I had at a veggie restaurant in Lithuania (that was so good at Lunch, I went back for dinner and there was this Latvian bland playing and they spoke in English between songs because they didn't speak Lithuanian) -- it had pickles and black olives in it!!! It was amazing and weird AND I can make a great imitation at home.
