Fresh picked spinach with finely chopped kale, collard, mint, and chives. Plus, slices of radish and a sweet vinaigrette dressing made with local honey, balsamic vinegar, oil, fresh squeezed orange juice, and salt.

I only had to buy the ingredients for the dressing. I love this time of year.

I did some very simple cooking today. I got an old Macaulay frying pan at a thrift store. And I started a new house today that has good appliances. So I put the stove on cleaning mode and cooked all of the old gunk off of the pan.

In more tasty news, my fiance is good at cooking many things as evidenced by these photos.

The last one is steamed eggplant that is flattened then sliced lengthwise and finally scrambled egg mix is poured over it. It's quite tasty but ends up looking like a bird that has been hit on the road.

Very cool! Did you grow all that stuff?

More food stuff. We get the majority of our fiber-rich stuff and herbs from the garden. I am still working on getting the starch, sugars, and protein to come out of it.

Wine? Yes, I will. Elderberry wine that is.

A friend of mine makes amaretto cookies. I thought it might work with acorns. I totally screwed up the amaretto recipe, but the cookies taste amaretto-like anyway. Recipe: 2 cups acorns (leached and ground to flour), 2T ground pecans, 2 eggs,  enough flour and sugar to make the dough stick in balls. Flour to sugar is about 2:1. Roll into balls and then roll in sugar. Mush out with a pecan on top. Cook at 300 degrees for an hour.  We basically didn't use the furnace today thanks to the acorn processing and cookie making, and there's been a 40°F windstorm all day.
