Happy new year everyone, I said it yesterday but still, you can’t tell me what to do, in fact… I’m gonna say it again! Merry Christmas! Today I made two recipes. The first, was a quiche , or at least the filling, I split it into a few mini crustless tarts.
To do this, I blanched some spinach, then I fried some onions in some butter, I added the spinach and heated over a gas flame for a couple minutes to dehydrate. I then added them to a bowl of eggs and cream. Then I cooked for a while in the onion. The second recipe was some braised cucumber, with some cream. I peeled and deseeded the cucumbers, then put them in a dish with some butter and dill (not a great idea) and into the onion she goes! Just before serving I reduced some cream to half and poured it over it .The quiches were okay, they needed some cheese to really spice them up, but they were good. The cucumbers weren’t the best, they weren’t as good as the monray ones, I also cooked them for less long at a higher heat which didn’t work as well.
But who am I kidding? you’re not here today to read about what I made! You want to know my statistics! You want to see me tell suffer with the lameness of amount of recipes that I cooked. Well, in 4 months – or 123 days, I managed to cook, drumroll please… 194 recipes! Now, if I crunch the numbers, because I’m a nerd, I have an average of 1,57 recipes a day. I have to do 524 recipes in 365 of them, so if I crunch even more, I need an average of 1,43. which means that I’m actually not behind. However, as you may know, I went intense for the first month, and then kind of lost it, well thats a bit extreme, but you get the point. So, because, again, I’m a nerd, I looked at my recipe average (or as i like to call it, the R rate) since october first, so about a month into the challenge. It’s about 1,27 recipes/day. So If I go at my current speed I won’t complete it. Which means that I need to get my shit together. Which I have been doing. Whatever, I’m gonna try harder in the new year, and no more breaks!
Well that was releiving. It’s nice to get it off my chest. I’m not going to make it my new year’s resolution to cook more or to take less breaks or something, because you never succeed your new years resolutions. Anyway, I gotta go smoke some surimi. Bye!
