This Trip

Still on this trip, did Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee and Minot so far, still have Billings, Coeur d'Alene/Spokane and maybe Missoula left to go.
Here's an assortment of photos from various events...

Here's a corn cake with fried cactus, spicy salsa and nacho cheezy sauce in Minot, North Dakota...

A wild & black rice pilaf with turnips, lemon collard greens and a white bean gulasch mit kartoffelkloesse (potato dumplings) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin...

A bengali spiced fried plantain & tomatillo sope with cilantro and jicama salsa fresca in Chicago, IL...

Kaassouffle and Nasi Goreng at popup cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota...

"Fairy Dust" waiting to be applied at one of the seatings for the Fairy Dinner in Minneapolis, Minnesota..

Kitchen Cernunnos waiting to regale dinner attendees with various entertainments...

Pretty fun trip, I'm still looking around thinking to open something up out there somewhere... pub & grub or a stand somewhere that has beer at the least, gasthouse/inn/ or lodge at the most, we shall see... let me know if you have any hot leads, people!

S'mores Oatmeal

Another easy one that's more of a concept than a recipe.
Essentially, make your oatmeal as you usually would but add some chopped dried apricots, dried cherries (pitted, please!) or other fun stuff.
When you turn off the heat, drop in pieces of chocolate- a flavor like orange or raspberry or caramel in the mix is going to be good. Don't bother stirring it in much if at all, it will melt into tasty globs
Put some in your bowl.
Toast crushed or broked graham crackers in a dry pan and add those, add a spoonful or tasty jam or marmelade, and of course take a vegan marshmallow and hold it with a fork or tongs over an open flame until it catches and then blow it out.
Aaaaand add that... a chocolate sauce addition is not without merit but it's not super sweet the way I make it so there's that.
Anyway, ta-da!
