>Tuesday Twister February 16

> Still busy here with work but at least everyone is healthy now. I didn’t do alot of extras again this past week.

Joe did bring me home 5 pounds of carrots that they offered him from his work (part of the bag had froze). I made 3 quarts of Spicy Carrots. We love these so it is always good to have them on hand. And I made almost 2 quarts of Cortido. This is also delicious. I used my food processor to shred the cabbage for the Cortido this time. Boy is that quick. I’m not sure if it will result in different flavor so we’ll see.

We’ve been trying to turn a recipe for Magic Milk Shakes from the Hillbilly Housewife into a real food beverage. I think we finally have it perfect. Milk shakes in the middle of February in Wyoming? They do chill us a bit but they are sooo good.

I picked up some frozen mussels a few weeks ago. And I made an entire pound for myself for lunch one day! I was just going to cook a few of them but they sounded so good I couldn’t help myself. The cooking liquid turned out delicious (combination of chicken broth and kombucha), I ended up dipping sourdough toast in it. My thinking, after being sick my body needed those mussels. That’s my story and I’m sticking with it.

What’s been Twisting in your kitchen?

    >Milkshakes in February isn't odd to us. We still get ice cream on a weekly basis. But we're just weird like that LOL

    Mussels. Another food I can't wrap my brain around trying lol

    I bet you would like the Magic Milkshakes. They are very good and easy.

    They pop open when they cook (the ones that do not open should not be eaten) and then the mussel just comes right out. Uncooked I think the shell can be pried open like an oyster but I've not done that with mussels. I have with oysters and it wasn't fun.
