Friday Night Dinner

Had a great dinner of Odessa Style Mushrooms, asparagus, and apple pudding. The mushrooms were incredibly rich and delicious. The apple pudding was a surprisingly good pairing with it and was something I certainly would have never thought to try.

Drank a glass of Riesling with the meal and ate the mushrooms with some bread.

Italian Pudding

Sunday Night's Meal

Sunday Night’s Meal

Otherwise known as bread pudding, which I’ve never had before. After making it though it is now one of my favorites.

I combined two different recipes: one medieval, and the other modern. Personally I like it best served cold.

Basically a 15th Century Macaroni and Cheese from Italy. The recipe originally calls for parmesan cheese but I used a blend of vegan cheddar, mozzarella, and parmesan.

Lord’s Loaf

This was a simple bread recipe that isn’t authentic but is inspired by medieval cooking. I ended up not using yeast though, I had read a lot about yeast being rare in medieval breads and wanted to try it. It was basically a very dense biscuit and so I ate it with jam.

I used Earth Balance for butter.
