Oooo, blueberries! White spots in the eggs do not mean that they weren't scrambled enough - they're bits of French feta cheese.Click image for larger version

We got some artisanal frozen, Chinese, chicken dumplings in our grocery order today, so I cooked them for supper. I made a salad that included purple carrots, spring garlic, and endives (plus other stuff). By the time I made the vinaigrette and the salad, I was exhausted, in spite of taking rest breaks. DH made some dipping sauce using tamari soy sauce, white wine vinegar, and a splash of chili oil. It was interesting. I said to try adding a bit of the sherry that we keep ginger in. Oh yeah, that was exactly what it needed. I'll have to remember that combo. DH also nuked some cooked brown rice and frozen corn and added some sesame seeds. That meal was really good. I will use a different method for cooking the dumplings another time.

May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.

It's really raining again and lots more expected, so a pot of My Chicken Chili hit the spot with cheese, cilantro and diced onion on the top of the bowls.

Smoked Sausage with Red Beans and Rice here. A modest glass of Bourbon on the rocks to fully experience Fat Tuesday (without the Ash Wednesday hangover).

Here it is: chicken and andouille gumbo with saffron rice and roasted garlic toast. Alas, I didnít get around to making beignets.

Iím so glad I made a whole cup of blonde roux the other night! I used about a half cup to make the roux for the gumbo. It took forever on the induction stove to get it to a good color. Even though it never got really dark, I finally lost patience. And sure enough, it didnít thicken enough, BUT I had some roux on hand to thicken it a bit more toward the end of cooking! Genius!

The roasted garlic toast may look a little unappetizing, but it was absolutely delicious.

Iím starting to think I donít like saffron very much, at least in things that donít really have any other flavor, like rice.

Not being Catholic, I never gave Lent a second thought. So I have never made a special dish for this celebration. What I do remember is all the Italian kids came to school with ashes on their forehead the day before Lent started. Then you would hear all the grumbling about not having meat on Friday. At that time, meatless Friday was still practiced in this town. And there are still some OLD Italians who practice it. They also attend Mass that is still done in Latin.

I never got into learning about Lent and all the practices that go with it.
