It is a LONG weekend in Ontario, which means we have THREE full days re: the lowest TOU rate. I'm going to try figuring out my grandma's fudge cake, make some chard mini pies, cook a pork roast that is in the freezer, maybe a turkey as well and then toss the meat back in the freezer for s/thing else.

This weekend it's tomato paste, tomato puree, and tortillas. I'm roasting the tomatoes, running them through the tomato strainer, and then using the crock pot to make the paste. I am going to make corn tortillas as well as kale tortillas with whole wheat flour. Probably freeze some more corn on Sunday after I get back from the farm.

Souvlaki: Sounds Divine

Sounds scrumptuous ...

Olive Pie ? Could you elaborate on this concoction for me, as to which olives and fillings do you use ? Is this Phyllo or Pastry Dough ?

Thanks,
Ciao, Margi.

yes please Souvlaki...more on the olive pie would be great! I'm busy eating a piece of emmental, goats cheese and tomato fougasse whilst reading this and trying to decide what to make for lunch. Think it's going to be healthyish with coleslaw, beetroot and yesterdays left over tomato and goats cheese tart. Off to the supermarket after lunch to find some sardines to bbq for dinner. Have a good weekend all.

Salon or Livingroom Renovation, Reforming, Painting

The last but not least renovation ... The painting and the knocking down one wall to create an open plan with the dining room ... to renovate the antique fireplace, and this shall continue through next week ...

Soon, all shall be finished ...

Thus, we are out and about, doing some shopping in Basilicata, with friends ... Matera is a unique city ... This is chili pepper & vegetable turf ... and the mountainous Pastoral lands, lamb and charcuterie, reign here ...

Ciao,
M.C.

Margi and kimmo

I quess i did not typed it as I should it is an eggplant pie with fresh tomatoes and olives on the top...

Turkish Eggplant Pie Recipe | Vegetarian Times

the only difference is that i make the dough

I do not bake but i grill the eggplants because i like that scent of smoked eggplant when i eat it
plus i prepare some bechamel sauce (2 tablespoons flour+2 tablespoons olive oil and milk as it takes to make a rather thick sauce )and add it to the eggplant mix.

I usually chop the eggplants and do not process them in the blender.

Souvlaki,

This Turkish eggplant pie with olive & tomato topping looks divine. Definitely am going to give this a try next week ... We are in Basilicata for wkend with dear friends, Matera born Giacinto and his Cantabrian Spanish wife Lucia whom we know uncountable years, and are neighbors and friends of ours. They have such a pretty one year old daughter Alessia too ... She is blonde with enormous blue eyes, and is a like a doll ... So petite.

Ciao, and have lovely Wkend.
Margi.
