Time to get creative

Our time in paradise is quickly drawing to a close. Food stores are getting thin so meals become more creative. Stale,homemade, no-knead bread became garlic croutons in a delicious tomato basil salad.

This week I signed up for the NY times cooking app for recipes. Butter is short so cookies and scones are out. We had creme brulee the other night. Easy to do when there’s a plumber ‘s torch handy.

Tonight I tried a chocolate pudding recipe from Florence Fabricant. I strongly encourage you to try this. We happened to have all the ingredients on hand. I stirred and stirred with a whisk on the stove and suddenly, as if by magic, it was pudding. No eggs; milk, cocoa, sugar and cornstarch. I threw in a little cayenne to kick it up a notch.

Then, as if by magic, we were able to see Mount Washington, which is 86(!) miles away.
