    Being Prepared

    My wife has become the central organizing person for a group of people making masks into which effective filters may be inserted. Her group is making masks for the retirement community staff in which we live as well as for one of the major hospitals here in Tulsa. Side note, somewhat political, the hospital has yet to receive masks sufficient to meet their need, and relies upon volunteers to make masks into which they can insert filters. At the end of the day they wash and bleach the masks to put in another filter. She has made us our own masks, without the filter. What do you think?

    You know that stub of meatloaf we had left over? It went into a grilled hash, along with blistered asparagus. And a poached egg.

    What's Cooking?

    Not as pretty as I would like, but maybe the most tasty thing I have fixed this year. Beef spare ribs braised osso buco style in a wine/stock liquid with aromatic veg. After I cooked the ribs, I defatted the broth and veg and used a boat motor (stick blender) to turn all into a puree. Served over cheesy polenta with a side of brown butter sauteed brussels sprouts.

    What's Cooking?

    I thawed some home made chicken stock tonight. I sauteed onions, celery, carrot, sweet bell pepper, garlic and added about a teaspoon of tomato paste, a big splash of fish sauce, Italian herbs, and then the broth. I simmered for a bit then added farro and simmered another 30 minutes. Checked salt and pepper and then added the peas right before service.

    My wife used that method for years, risking burns on the very hot cast iron. Cooks illustrated published an article about how to do the no knead bread starting with a cold dutch oven. Now she uses it. https://www.americastestkitchen.com/recipes/4028-almost-no-knead-bread

    What's Cooking?

    Since I started in the kitchen early, I kept going. The chili is two hours from service in the picture, but beginning to look like the real thing. And yes, I know many feel strongly that chili should not have beans. However, my wife likes a few black beans in the chili. She claims it is more civilized. You will note, I do not add many.
