I've been cooking a lot lately.
I made lemon curd from scratch the other day. I was going to make an 'angel pie' (meringue crust, lemon custard, whipped cream and strawberries, yum!), but the 97% humidity made the meringue crust not work correctly. It tasted wonderful, but wasn't quite right. Also, the lemon custard stuff that was in the recipe ended up burning in the pan I used, so I scrapped it and made a proper lemon curd.
I've wanted to try my hand at lemon curd for at least 4 years, so I'm pretty pleased that I got around to it (I'll be going to Ireland any day at this rate). It takes much less lemon than I'd thought: the rind of two lemons and the juice of one. Combine that with sugar (1 cup, I think), butter (1 stick) and eggs (four, well beaten). It's a lot of stirring in a double boiler, but man, it's well worth it.
Tonight I made cranberry apple sauce, all with Wisconsin ingredients. That was cool.
I also made a Thai curry that was incredible. I went to what used to be called Asian Midway Foods and got some incredible, inexpensive curry paste, and those great little round eggplants. It was very tasty.
I picked up some ground pork to make Ma Po Tofu, I guess I'll do that tomorrow night. Remind me to pick up some rice tomorrow after class. Or I could just make brown rice... That wouldn't be bad, would it?
Bf is asleep and I feel like talking. Although I won't, I'm tempted to poke at him and wake him up! But that would be inconsiderate.
