Rhubarb Sauce Stewed Pork

Rhubarb Sauce Stewed Pork (7)

 

Even though my blog has been running just for two months, you have probably noticed that most of the meals being posted here are salads, pasta, and some desserts such as donuts and marshmallows. Indeed, I prefer not to count any desserts since they are not the real food. The solid argument, right?:) And I do believe in a few mounts or so you will find some dips, chilled soups, appetizers, lemonades, and ice cream – sorbets (remember – we’re not counting any donuts, pancakes, and marshmallows!) That will be pretty much the food you’re going to see for a long time.

Rhubarb Compote Oatmeal and my First Official Marathon

Rhubarb Compote Oatmeal
In my recent post, I was talking about oatmeal. And guess what? The same story is happening today. Sorry about that.

As I said last time, I had been basically eating the same porridge again and again, since the dawn of time for a few decades. Indeed, they were two kinds of porridge – cooked in milk or in water. Later on, I started adding some cheese in it for a savory version.

Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts

Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts (2)
Have you ever had a situation when a planned dish was transformed while cooking? Don’t answer though – I guess it will be “yes”. Not being a spontaneous person in life, I can act like that in the kitchen. That often happens to me, especially when I make a salad or pasta dish.  I have tried doing the same thing in baking, but after screwing up a few layer cakes I came to realize I shouldn’t be that frivolous with cakes.

Sometimes I can blame my memory for forgetting to add an ingredient and finding that out only while taking pictures or  having eaten the meal.

Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Olives and Feta Polenta

In many countries – and so in Canada – there are some kind of emergency lists set up, regularly revised, and advised to be used in case of any unforeseen situations such as deteriorated weather conditions, natural calamities, power outage and so on. It’s quite reasonable to have some extra water, imperishable food and cash in your house. Even though Toronto is quite a safe area, I remember a few situations since we came to Canada. There were some downpours and snowfalls left a number of residential areas without power up to a few days. But the most outrageous situation happened in December, 2013 when thanks to a two-day freezing rain the thousands of people didn’t have power up to a week, including the Christmas holidays.

I’ve got an amazing news to share with your, friends! Oh boy, where are my manners? Hi, folks, and thanks for stopping by. Okay, now you know I’m an extremely well-mannered guy, and I can continue.

In a number of my previous posts, I’ve been using the word “kick” the way too much. It’s been overused. It’s probably gotten vulgar. Thus, I’ve got a substitution for this word which I’m going to use in the next 258 posts. Sure, after that I’ve got to find a new one.

Buckwheat Tuna Pancakes

Buckwheat Tuna Pancakes (4)

Is it getting some kind of platitude to say in every other post I’m having a kick on something? Right.  But what could be done if it’s true, and my kitchen adventures are determined by all kind of these kicks a lot?

I was having that love for buckwheat flour a few months ago. I was using it in a number of recipes such as cookies, muffins, and definitely pancakes.  It’s not a new product to me, but I don’t use it on a regular basis. Last time I was vigorously using this flour in 2010…so the next time could be anticipated in 2019-2020:)
