Made this cake today for my grandson. Not to shabby for one handed. I had shoulder surgery 2 and a half weeks ago on my dominant arm. Please no negative comments. I give my self enough of negativity about it.



I cooked last Sunday fish chowder, my good friend used to make a good one and gave me a recipe but I don’t know where I put it so I googled one I liked. I used bacon and some other type of fish (white fish) I found on sale but with skin and bones, so I had extra work of skinning and deboning the fish, hmmm it was so tasty and just right for winter a hearty soup, I shared with my son too.

I used this recipe but improvised a bit, I didn’t have clam juice, I used just a veggie stock and I added carrots and canned corn, I didn’t have cream so I added flour mixed with milk to thicken the soup, but the bacon def makes the soup savory!!


oh gosh, that sounds so good! I think I am going to make myself some today, got a can of salmon and the other ingredients, yum!!

As I made Kimchi yesterday I saw another interesting recipe with the Daikon radish, maangchi makes 2 versions I will try to make perhaps next month. This radish soup could be something tasty in summer like you eat gazpacho that is cold served.



I read an interesting receipe in the Du Chinese app called 拔丝红薯 (candied sweet potato) Does anyone have experience making this? The article did explain how to make it, but not how much I should use from each ingredient. It seems easy to make with only four ingredients, I just don’t want to mess it up.


I found this on YT. Seems to match the story.


Bacon wrapped Meatloaf with cheese stuffed in the middle - carrots and onion! Mashed potatoes on the side.


candied sweet potatoes are delicious, havent had the candy version in quite some time though


So I finished the dehydrated persimmons, they look wrinkled and kinda like shrunken heads :rofl: I cut slices and it has a taste something like figues and dates and then some other taste, it’s sweet not overly too sweet and chewy. Is this how it’s supposed to be. Mines didn’t have this much sugar coating but looked like these.

I found more persimmons now on sale again and wonder if I should make them again and yes massaging is really funny :joy:

Did you know persimmons have a high amount of lutein which helps vision and aging eyes.


Yup, pretty much :blush:. Sweet, but not too sweet. Chewy and vaguely like dates :smile:.
They might get more sugar coating the “older” they get.

This is how the addiction starts :rofl:. I know some chefs who do the same thing with kiwi’s "(hoshigaki) and other fruits. I haven’t had the chance to yet, but it looked very interesting :blush:


if thats the finished product, then I have eaten them sometime in my life, and I do recall they were good, sweet too. and they have something I need in my “older” age, lutein, so I do plan to do some research and find some here in the south, I am certain they are here somewhere,


You would have to eat them daily, I’m not sure about the lutein content when they are dry… would need to research… but I also take lutein capsules there are 20 and 40 mg I got at Walmart… It would probably make more sense to take the supplements as you get the high amount readily available… the ones I know are plant based capsules…
