This Turned Into This

January 31, 2021

I did a bunch of fun un-kitchen things today… but then finished the day in a flurry of kitchen projects:

This (cocoa powder, powdered sugar, cinnamon, salt and eggs):

…turned into this (the above with choco chips and vanilla added):

…which then turned into these (three dozen flourless, dense, brownie-like chocolate cookies):

Sending most of them to Ann Arbor.


This (carrot, celery, onion, olive oil)…

… got embellished by this (skinned, crushed tomato, salt and pepper)..

…. then got added to this (a dry mix of barley, lentils, black eyed peas and some other stuff that boiled in water for a while to soften up and was then drained)…

… then, the whole thing cooked in a vegetable broth for a while and turned into this:

Which was good enough! I liked the broth part, Jim liked the bulky stuff. We floated pieces of over-baked pita bread in it and liked it.

And finally, this (a whole bunch of Meyer lemons that Meghan-up-the-street gave us)…

… turned into this (2 quarts of lemon juice.. to be made into lemon cubes as soon as we free up some space in our freezer):

It was a productive couple of hours.
