Crisco, nutmeg, and Flour.

I'm not entirely certain how nutmeg flatbreads are going to taste.  I wished I lived closer to the ocean so I could get some free salt.

Actually pretty stocked (after I picked up my Instacart order on Monday).  I think tonight I'll make a simple summer pasta* with grape tomatoes and basil I'm growing out back.  We're already scratching at 90 degrees, consistently.

* bought spaghetti before the great shortage of 2020

I'm not creative enough to help there.

I am well stocked on all the essentials but I am running out of spices.

Difficulty level: I can't use salt.

We did a midnight grocery run this week, so we're OK in terms of supplies.

Does anyone have any good polenta recipes? We usually make it with mushrooms and parmesan, but we don't have either of those at the moment.

Just go the grits route and use butter and salt.

Hmmmm.

I do have most of a bag of pearled barley and I'm not sure what to do with it.  I made beef barley soup to freeze a few weeks ago.  But most of that bag is left.

Would be fine with butter and salt and pepper. But I can I turn it into something better?

Make it according to the package directions. Once its cooled you can slice it and grill/fry it. I top it with tasso cream sauce (blackened grilled chicken works ok too) and grilled spicy scrimps.

Or go the grits route.

Good eats did a grains episode with a barley salad recipe that sounded good.

During my alcohol fueled panic buying Costco run I spent my last savings on two 50 gallon barrels of mayo.

Another neighbor did the same with tuna, and yet another did the same with dill relish.

Now we just need to find the asshole that hoarded all the bread.

That's a good thought.  Will look it up.  And I like things like tabbouleh.

It's got orange, fennel and bacon. Hell I might try it.

If I had to guess then I would suppose they might taste like flatbread flavored with nutmeg. As a disclaimer, I must confess I have not made such a thing myself. Nor would I, honestly.

Drinking hand sanitiser makes it a lot easier to explain why you ate the toilet roll.

Got any craft brew at home with yeast sludge in the bottom? Anything unfiltered and unpasteurized like a NEIPA or Belgian wit or hefeweizen? It'll rise the bread. It'll take a longer while than traditional bread yeast, but it'll do it's thing. Proof it with a bowl with warm water, honey, and flour. If it starts to bubble and foam, you got live yeast   Make a poolish with the proof, more water, and flour. Better than flat bread.

Just be prepared to wait longer than those times.

1. eat all the spice
2. fold spacetime
3. ???
4. profit

Or, eat all the nutmeg, get really high and pretend you're knife-fighting with Sting to pass the time.

Flour tortillas and nutmeg dipping oil.

Melt the crisco and use it like oil.  If you've got a leavener, now you have simple nutmeg pancakes.  If you've got time, sourdough is a possibility without any fat.

Pan de Campo is a regular favorite at my house, but it will use some salt.  The milk can be substituted with water.

You could make some type of ad-hoc pastry by making a soft dough with flour and water (and sugar if you have it) and a little bit of baking powder (if you have it).  Roll it out to a rectangle twice as long as it wide.  Put a layer of Crisco on on half and fold it over to make a square.  Then gently roll it out and fold in thirds a few times.  (Look up rolling out croissants.)  Now you've got some puff pastry of questionable quality, but at least you've kept yourself busy.  Make an interesting shape and bake at 350 until it's lightly browned.

I make a simple polenta/grits recipe (broth and grits and a little salt) that's good and thick then let it cool in a rectangular container.  Once it's cooled, I slice it and fry up the slices then top with maple syrup.  Nothing about the result is healthy, but it it tasty.

Grind and snort the nutmeg
Put down a tarp
Coat the wife with flour
Coat yourself with crisco
Hit it like a home run, and round all the bases at leisure
Shower
Roll up the tarp and throw it away
Go to bed hungry yet happy

My vacation was canned, so I am going to try to make moussaka this week. My saving grace is that there was still lamb and eggplant in the store because those are probably exotic ingredients where I live.

I am so stocked with food... and I know how to use it!

Seriously, my list of pantry items would sound like a market, my freezers are full, the refrigerators are full, the emergency dry goods buckets are full, and I'm storing some veggies on the slab in the garage.
In 2-3 weeks I will be out of milk, eggs, and fresh fruit and vegetables. From there I could last another 2-3 months without much effort.

One of the reasons I bought a house was to have a "home base", and that is paying off.

Baking soda and capers.

I remember when  we used to call that "fried cornmeal mush."

Meat's dream: Baking soda and capers.


Eat all the capers then mix some baking soda and water (and a twist of lemon if you have it) and drink that to settle your tummy from all the capers you ate.

Yeah, but "grits" sounds tastier than "cornmeal mush".

I was looking for something else and couldn't find it, and ran across something useful instead.
