Count Broccula's veg-head ramblings

My home experiments with vegetarian cooking. Focused on seasonal produce with some vegan stuff thrown in for good measure. I may include random other food-related stuff as I please.

Whoa! My goodness!

Sweetie made fruited chicken (well, fruited "quorn") and it was delicious! I won't give away his secret recipe (not that I know the whole thing, but it looked like pineapple chunks and soy sauce baked with chicken, and was delicious.

Christ!!!!!! This is the second time I've accidentally erased most of my post!!!!!!

Anyway, I made the coffee ice cream with the Madaglia D'Oro espresso, and it is fantastic. Really, at least as good as any coffee ice cream I've ever had, including the short-lived Starbucks ice cream (which, despite my Starbucks boycott, I have to admit was really freakin' goood).

2 eggs
3/4 cup plus 2 Tbs sugar
1 cup milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
3 Tbs instant coffee granules.

Whip the eggs until they're fluffy, then add sugar gradually. Then stir in the milk, cream, and 2 Tbs of the coffee. Process in an ice cream maker, and about 2 minutes before the ice cream is completely set, add the final tablespoon of coffee.

For a super-extra-good bonus, I made a No Pudge Brownie (there's actually a single serving preparation suggestion on the box) and topped the hot brownie with just a little of the ice cream. Amazing.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Vegetables are great, but the Heart Start Defibrillator is better (At saving your life, that is ;) ).
