Sasasnippets Green: Things Making Me Happy of Late

I’m fairly bursting with Spring fever still. The highs are in double digits! There are vegetables other than carrots and parsnips (not that I’m disparaging carrots, you understand) and sometimes I just stop in the road and turn my face to the sun and there is enough heat in it that I can shrug my jacket off nearly every day.

Spring Chickens

It’s been birthday season around here lately and I made four cakes for three lovely people – because I cleverly managed to throw one of them on the floor as I attempted to invert it at the same time as I was conducting a conversation on Skype. I’m pleased to report I was completely zen about it and calmly scooped up what could be eaten ( 5 second rule and all that), ate it, then walked to the shops to buy some more pears for another toffee and pear cake. Not especially seasonal I know, but that’s what the birthday boy likes and he’s the one I turn to for Sasasunakku tech support so he must be placated with regular offerings and libations. I also made a flourless chocolate and hazelnut cake for a gluten-free friend and an enormous chocolate celebration cake for F.’s mum which I’ll post soon.

The Hills are Alive

I’ve recently discovered the joys of Grooveshark - it’s like Youtube for music. It makes it easy to loll about and listen to Interstate Love Song and State of Love and Trust whilst reliving my angsty teenage years. I’ve also been listening to Dire Straits’ Romeo and Juliet in preparation for my visit to Verona to hang out with a cynical chef.

I’ve also been listening to Edible Radio rather avidly as I fluff around in the kitchen, I particularly enjoyed an interview with Mark Bitterman about salt.

Eat your vegetables

My hankering for greens has been appeased (twice) with this Orzo and Broccoli Pesto Salad, my own crunchy mish mash of green things in a bowl and Deb’s Green Beans with Quickle Red Onions and Toasted Almonds.

Charming Descriptions of Food

I just read “Cider with Rosie,” a memoir of Laurie Lee’s childhood in Yorkshire and was delighted to find passages like this: “Chopped carrots like copper pennies, radishes and chives, potatoes dipped and stripped clean from their coats of mud, the snapping of tight pea-pods, long shells of green pearls, and the tearing of glutinous beans from their nests of wool… Peas rolled under the tongue, fresh cold, like solid water; teeth chewed green peel of apples, acid sharp and the sweet white starch of swedes. Beaten away by wet hands gloved with flour, one returned in a morose and speechless lust. Slivers of raw pastry, moulded, warm, went down in the shapes of men and women – heads and arms of unsalted flesh seasoned with nothing but a dream of cannibalism.” (Own stress).

Kimberley’s Seasonal Food Guides, not to mention her entire blog The Year in Food are an inspiration; beautiful photographs and you can tell how sweet and smart she is in every post.

Happy Passover/Easter/long weekend and tell me, what’s afoot in your world possums?

In Italy? Enjoy and Buona Pasqua.

Sorry about your cake and plate, not sure what the 5 sec rule is though!!

Edible radio? Sounds yum :-)

And carrots… I read in one recipe “cut the carrots into coins” and loved the expression!

Ciao

5 second rule is that germs don’t get on the food until after 5 seconds and you can still pick it up and eat it.

Kocinera April 22, 2011 at 10:18 pm

Wow! Kudos to you for keeping your cool with that cake disaster. I think that you, as the founder of the fight hangrrrr movement, should do a post about retaining your inner peace whilst pots and pans and cakes come crashing down. As someone who has sent a Baked Alaska springing off its pan onto the floor, I would find such advice highly useful. :D

millie April 23, 2011 at 3:35 am

oo, thanks for this. got lots to check out now over the long weekend. I love good food descriptions too; I get really excited and fold down corners of pages in books (naughty!) whenever I come across one :)

Sasa April 26, 2011 at 12:43 pm

I’m a total dog-earer – lock up your books!

Lana April 23, 2011 at 7:55 am

Besides my odious job killing me with hours, the Spring has sprung vibrantly in our household. I sometimes long for routine and boring days, as the several months ahead are full with happenings (most of them I have to organize and bring to fruition, so it’s panic time!)
Do not have enough hours in a day to accomplish everything I need:)
Your photos are beautiful – you are putting me to shame:( I took a photography course last winter, but I am a terrible student:)

Delaney April 24, 2011 at 2:11 am

Gorgeous Sasa! Totally inspirational – cute pics and I am in desperate need of a large dose of greenery. Enjoy Italy! Totally jealous, looking forward to hearing about it :)

amber April 24, 2011 at 6:16 am

Four cakes? You HAVE been busy. I am very interested in the toffee and pear cake you mentioned.

I have been a bit lazy lately. The highlight for me at the moment is trying on clothing that hasn’t fit me for 12 months and being able to do up the zipper. I’ve lost about 8 or 9 kilos.

Su-yin April 25, 2011 at 6:40 pm

You’ve been one busy lady! Have fun in Italy! x

p.s. I totally believe in the 5 second rule too. Some food is just too good to be wasted. Ahem.

Kimberley April 26, 2011 at 1:28 am

So much good stuff here. I heart me some Dire Straits. And am so excited to listen to the Mark Bitterman interview. Thanks for this lovely list! (And your kind words!) Cannot wait to hear about Italy.

Moon over Martinborough April 28, 2011 at 6:38 pm

The picture of that cake breaks my heart!

CharlotteAuChocolat April 28, 2011 at 9:53 pm

Hey Sasa! The link to Deb’s green beans with quickly-pickled red onions reads “quickle”- I’m SO adopting that word! too cute ;) also, going to check out edible radio- sounds promising!

hungryandfrozen April 28, 2011 at 11:11 pm

Gosh, those weren’t just any birthday cakes – they sound amazingly delicious. I go by the five second rule too for most things (soup…not so much) but I applaud your method in dealing with the dropped cake, at the final hurdle of turning it out I don’t think I’d have been so calm!

Happy Easter – I’m looking forward to browsing through your beautiful blog again :)

Vivienne April 30, 2011 at 2:25 pm

haha, glad to hear you were so calm about the cake. i had a similar accident where the cake took me 3 hours to make. i remember i was in shock then took out a fork and ate off the floor. disgusting aye? lucky it’s spring over there…new life everywhere! I’m looking forward to hearing the salt podcast soon!
