hey students what sound does a cow make?

with one comment

When I lived in Serbia this summer I barely ate anything aside from plums and dairy products. My host family had four cows but only one was producing milk at the moment. The 11-person household, including myself and another WWOOFer, was so large that we had to eat in shifts, yet that one cow produced more milk than we could handle. A typical breakfast or dinner consisted of bread, jam, shaved bits of dried meat, and: swiss cheese, soft cheese, herbed soft cheese, milk, sourmilk, butter, young butter, clotted cream, and yogurt.

This is basically what all my meals aspire to now. In Korea, yogurt is a little too expensive ($5 for 750 mL) for me to drink regularly, so I have decided to make my own dairy products. Cheese is a must because very little cheese is sold here. One day when I craved apples with cheddar I had to buy a packet of Kraft singles!

“The aubergines were slow- baked for six hours, brought to the table whole, and skinned in front of us. They took out the flesh, crisscrossed the aubergines with two knives, and then added whipped cream with hazelnuts, lemon, sweet pepper, oil, feta cheese, salt and pepper. Incredible.” This.

slice up one eggplant, beat one egg and dip the slices in the beaten egg, then deep-fry them a couple minutes. Then take them off the heat, beat up one more egg together with a couple chopped scallions and some fish sauce, and then pour that into a frying pan for about a minute, stirring it around as if you were making scrambled eggs — but before it starts setting, add the eggplant slices back. And then from that point you treat it like a pancake — letting it cook on one side, then you flip the whole mess over with a spatula and cook on the other side.” Ask Metafilter
