Self-Affirmation of Your Evil Twin Drives Increased Tinkering with the Right Bacteria and Food Scrounge News

Mr. Mike and I took our first two-wheeled trip of the year over Labor Day weekend. We rode part of the Natchez Trace and camped at Grand Gulf Military Park. Yes, camping on a battleground site. It is well maintained for campers. Plus, they don’t care if you drink PBR. The Grand Gulf cemetery is part of the park. It is one of the spookiest places I’ve visited, even in daylight.

After you peruse and are waiting on your ‘que (pulled pork) to finish, make this coleslaw. It is similar to the KFC coleslaw. Recipe is from Allrecipes.com

Aw-Some Cole Slaw
1/3 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons sugar (use less if you don’t like sweet slaw)
2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons milk
1 Tablespoon and 2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
6 1/3 cups shredded cabbage
1/3 cup grated carrots
2 Tablespoons minced sweet onion (like Vidalia)

Whisk together the seasonings and liquids in a large bowl. Have your veggies ready to add, because the dressing will curdle if it sits more than a few minutes without the vegetables. Toss the cabbage, carrots, and onions into the dressing and mix well. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving or overnight. Serves 8.

Have a great scroungy week!

From Eros with Love – Cocoa Fudge Cake

Eros, LA

Eros, LA

Mr. Mike and I stopped for this photo several years ago. He was riding his Guzzi Sport, I was on my Buell Lightning.  I made this cake to celebrate Valentine’s Day and the Mardi Gras floodwaters receding. A canoe is no longer necessary to reach the paved road (and mailbox!). The recipe is from my 1974 Betty Crocker Cookbook.  Yes, I know weighing is more accurate than measuring baking ingredients. But this was the early ’70s and Miss Betty didn’t do weights. Actually most Americans still don’t weigh ingredients. I like this recipe because it is forgiving – just dump, mix, and bake.

Cocoa Fudge Cake

1/2 cup margarine or shortening, softened

1 1/2 cup sugar

1 2/3 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 cup buttermilk

2 eggs

2/3 cup cocoa

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350 F. Spray no-stick spray a 13 X 9 X 2 inch pr two layer pans. Alternately you can grease and flour the pans (I hated doing that). Measure all ingredients in a large mixer bowl. Blend 30 seconds on low speed. Scrape down sides of bowl and mix 3 minutes on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan(s). Bake oblong pan 35-40 minutes, layers 30 -35 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on rack.  Frost, dust top with powdered sugar, or top with whipped cream when serving.
