Another wonderful day of Vancouver weather!

I’m cooped up inside–again–and to stave off boredom I thought I’d do another update! Horay!

… Anyway.

I created a recipe section and over the next couple days I’m going to figure out how to create sub-pages so that I can list off a few goodies. I’m not sure how I’m going to organize it yet… so I figure there’s going to be more than a few revisions. The most sensible thing I can think of would be to initially list off recipes by featured ingredient, page and say under Zucchini you’d have stuff like M├╝cver (Turkish zucchini pancakes), visit this Italian zucchini loaf, et cetera. But I do think it would be cool if, instead of having to scroll down through a million different recipes, for there to be a device where you’d say (A) have a list of different geographical regions that you could select, and then (B) insert the featured ingredient, and then-viola!- there’s a neat list of recommended recipes to choose from. On the other hand, I could always keep it simpler still and have different lists of recipes listed by who I obtained them from, i.e. by restaurant (assuming they’d be game), dad, grandma, and of course recipes that I butcher (think tandoori chicken on white bread with Swiss cheese and mayo). We’ll see what happens, but It’ll be solid so I hope no one gets too worried!

The first few things I’m going to post will probably include: Mucver, plum dumplings, plum cake, prebranac, podvarac, ka?amak, saurkraut, tomato soup, spaghetti sauce, zucchini loaf, a variety of different things one can do with kale and squash, and how to make chicken noodle soup from scratch. It’s really surprising how few people actually know how to make chicken noodle soup without even the addition of bottled vegetable broth. I might throw in a good schnitzel recipe, too, if I come across one that turns out like the one that they serve at the Black Forest Restaurant in Harrison Hotsprings. Since a great number of you guys are vegetarian I’ll try my best to include good vegetarian mains and sides as vegetarian options in Vancouver are limited to The Foundation, and… well The Foundation, and cooking at home.

Sidenote: I was going to harass them when I went there the other day, but I was with friends and they probably wouldn’t have greatly appreciate the vegetable hawker spiel. Another time, another day.
