Week of November 11

November is NaBloPoMo. Since I can't keep up with the daily posting schedule, I am apparently trying to make up for it by overdoing it the kitchen every weekend. It's my masochistic streak, I guess.

On Sunday, I:
  • Made confiture de lait per Pim. Our woodstove was hummin' and it provided the perfect even heat needed to cook this stuff for the requisite 3 hours.(!)
  • Made quince caramels, ibid. Therefore, I poached several quinces (see photo), which leads to:
  • Baked a quince tart.
  • Stewed up a pot of white chicken chili.
  • Baked beets.
  • Made chard and mozzarella calzones.
  • Made Sunday dinner.
