Dagens billede 3 -- Picture a Day 3

     Det der med "at tømme tønden" det er en ting der griber om sig. Rundt om i køkkenskabene er der mange sære ting som Uglemor har købt eller fået foræret, fordi det kunne der jo nok blive brug for en dag. 
     Inderst i et skab lå der for eksempel sådan nogle rismelspapirspandekager, som man laver forårsruller af. Rester fra gårsdagens aftensmad, risotto og poussiner blev peppet op med krydderier, rød peber i minibitte tern og fintstrimlet hvidkål. Så blev det der rismelspapir vandet og tørret efter alle kunstens regler - og så ringede Skribenten hjem. Da Uglemor kom ud i køkkenet igen, var rismelspapiret klistret til det rene viskestykke. "Nå, det kan da klistre," tænkte Uglemor, og så rullede hun ellers forårsruller efter alle kunstens regler.  De blev stegt, Skribenten, Hvalrossen og Uglemor spiste mindst to hver, og selv Ugleungerne kunne faktisk lide dem. Så endnu en ting: Lav noget med de elendige rismelspapirer - er slettet fra projektlisten.

Stash bashing is a growing art form. In MotherOwl's kitchen are many strange ingredients and things. MotherOwl bought many of them, but a lot was given with the words: "You have many mouths to feed, this will come in handy." Some things are just not that handy. MotherOwl had put away some rice flour wraps for spring rolls at the top shelf. But now it was stash bashing time in the kitchen. Leftovers from yesterday's rice and poussins (young chicken) was augmented with red bell pepper in tiny squares, finely shredded cabbage, and spices. Then one of the rice paper things was watered and let dry according to the recipe - and then the Writer phoned home. When MotherOwl returned to the kitchen, the rice paper wrap was glued to the tea towel. "Well, at least they do stick to something," MotherOwl said to herself, and started the spring roll learning process. It went surprisingly well, The Writer, the Walrus and MotherOwl each had two, and all the Owlets ate at least one each. One more thing: Use those rice paper wraps and learn how to make spring rolls, is off my mental list.

  • Det her billede er fra cirka halvvejs inde i processen. De sidste blev stadigt pænere.
  • Approximately halfway through the spring roll learning process. The last ones were even better. 

    Mange af de sære ting i køkkenet kommer fra et af mine lokale supermarkeder. De har en tilbudsmontre - en skøn idé. Her ender varer de har forkøbt sig på eller hvor datoen er næsten udløbet og så bliver de nedsat med 25 eller 50 procent. Så ind i mellem får vi noget mad, vi ellers ikke ville have råd til, eller bare ikke turde købe, for hvad nu hvis vi slet ikke kunne lide det? Derfra kom poussinerne, der altså rakte til næsten to dage - vi supplerede i dag med båndnudler og en medisterpølse fra samme tilbudsmontre.

A lot of the funny things in MotherOwl's kitchen and cooking come from our local supermarket. They have a place where they place all that they bought too much form or that just did not sell. It's not too old, only almost, and then it is sold at a discount. Great Idea MotherOwl thinks. It let us eat lots of things that would be too expensive, or that we would not dare to try at the ordinary price. The poussins came from there, as did the long sausage which supplemented the spring rolls and noodles today.
