Food Friday - it's hot out edition
It's hot out.
I made chicken using some of the Tsere I had bought a couple of years ago. Tsere is an African mixture of hot peppers and peanuts that packs a punch. It gets hot in Africa,they know how to make food for this weather. It will be perfect for tonight.
While the chicken was roasting I roasted some tomatoes that will go into tonight's salad.
Since you asked nicely I will tell you that I sprinkled them with Zaatar.
Tonight's dessert is Creamsicle flavored parev ice cream.Here is a pot with a hefty tablespoon of flour, but I could have used corn or potato starch instead, a cup of sugar and the grated rind of an orange.
I cut the orange
and then used my fancy orange juicing tool to get out every bit of juice. yes, i squeezed the orange right over the pot. Who needs to was extra dishes?
I added some commercial orange juice and some water and a bit of olive oil, and set the pot to simmer.
When the mixture came to a boil I added vanilla and then put it into the ice cream maker.
It tastes like a Creamsicle or like an Orange Julius if you grew up in New York.
Our starch tonight is lazy corn, cooked by letting the ears sit in boiling water for a few minutes.
It's time to finish making the salad.
Shabbat Shalom! and stay cool.
