Had two wisdom teeth extracted today. You can see one side of my face is swollen. For the moment just waiting for the vicodien to kick in.
I’d read about the Cook’s Illustrated vodka pie dough several times and figured this week end was a good time to try it. As luck would have it, my local organic grocery had giant leeks on sale and somehow a chilly San Francisco evening sounded perfect for a leek and onion tart.
Disclaimer: The recipe for the crust is cut and pasted from http://forgoodnesstaste.wordpress.com/2009/09/06/my-new-favorite-pastry-recipe/ – The recipe from there out is mine. As with any pastry recipe the colder your ingredients before you mix them the better.
I blame Mark Bittman for making me want to do pound cake. It’s not something I usually think about except when I get a craving for Entemann’s.
Today I’m putzing around at home fighting off a minor cold. Nothing bad enpough to take to my bed but enough that I don’t want to be around people. Sitting on the couch made me antsy so I figured I’d use up some ingredients I had and set to work. A few google searches and I found a recipe I could manipulate and make my own.
