Ok, truth: I can't follow a recipe. I always have to improvise; it's a compulsion. So my marinade for the churrasco I haven't grilled yet is everything in the recipe link, but with a lot of orange juice and onion and some jerk seasoning that Cape Cod Steve made. What's in his jerk seasoning? I have no idea, but it's delicious - spicy hot with depths of flavor and I am lucky enough to get some on his visits down here. So why not throw that in to something I'll cook tomorrow on the grill? Of course I will. And did. I'll ask him what's in it tonight. With a notebook in hand. This should be good...
The other food this week is lettuce. Splurging on some hydroponic lettuce last week, I finished it off and realized just what was on the bottom. A sort of little box of dirt and new roots. Really? Could I make it grow again, like I would if I was growing it myself, where you chop off some and then let it keep growing? Well, yes. I can. And I am.
|On one side is where I chopped it off. On the other? New lettuce!|
|Once I took the rubber band off, I have all of these babies. I'm letting them soak in water right now, but I'll plant them in dirt soon. Hydroponics is a neat way to garden, but I'm a dirt person.|
