WEIRD FOOD: latkes and pizza re-imagined????
The sun came out yesterday on our little bit of snow. A few inches....some of it melted later, but it sure looked pretty in our yard in the morning, hmm? There is a river there amongst the trees full of ducks and geese...
OK, so food????
I am the opposite of a traditionalist. It is my artistic-bohemian personality. I don't give a sh!t what you are s'posed to eat on holidays or any other time, plus, you know, being veg and no dairy or gluten either....people ask me what I am doing Thanksgiving and are SHOCKED to hear that I have zero interest in familyor football...I need to make money! I always work through Thanksgiving, I am a retailer! And we will have sweet potato enchilada for Thanksgiving, or something like that...the wife will want pumpkin pie, though, and we will listen to Arlo Guthrie's ALICE'S RESTAURANT, so OK, sure, some tradition in there....
ANYWAY, I like latkes. There is a lot of press lately about the early Jewish holidays and Thanksgiving. I know very little about Judaism, but who doesn't love latkes, potato pancakes????****
I made some yesterday and paired them with mexican frijoles, hot salsa and avocado and GOODness that is yummy...
And the previous day? I told the wife "I am going to make pizza..with a rice crust!" And the recipe I followed was mighty good, but this simple: cook a pot of rice per usual, with some herbs and garlic. Grease a baking pan. Pack the cooked rice into the pan 1/2 inch thick. Top with some tomato sauce, toppings, cheese, like you would any pizza, then bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes. Then eat!
It is not like a regular pizza crust, sort of like...a casserole that you reminds you of pizza or something: mmmmmm!
Have a great Thursday!
1 1/2 pound grated potato
--stir those in a bowl, add oil to your fry pan, form the potato mix into patties, squeezing out a little extra moisture as you do, then fry each side until golden! Eat warm!!!!!!
