It earns a zero on the Mike approval rating scale.
Edamame is the immature soy bean that is often served with Japanese cuisine. It has a good amount of protein plus nine essential amino acids so it is worth considering if you try for meatless meals.
This is kind of an example of my season confusion. I ate a lot of this while we were in Florida. Since I have been back in Vermont, I find I want to crawl into bed early and sleep late. I want to spend the afternoons roasting and baking, followed by eating. I want hot drinks and thick, creamy soups. I want to forget about my walking routine and knit hats instead.
I'll indulge myself a little bit.
It's not very good nutrition, but it just would not be autumn without one apple pie.
For one double crust pie:
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (King Arthur is the best)
- 1 t. salt
- 2 t. sugar
- 8 T. very cold butter, cut in pieces
- 6 T. solid vegetable shortening, very cold
- 5 to 6 T. ice water
Add water a bit at a time, tossing with a fork until you can form a ball.. Divide into two balls and flatten. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before rolling.
It may not feed the body, but a warm slice does feed the soul.
You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands;
you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
